WASHINGTON -- Winter squeezed the Eastern United States on Monday, bringing snow and promising days of frigid temperatures in the region where too many unwanted, icy records have already been set.  Snow began falling in the mid-Atlantic region and the federal government took a snow day -- again. Nasty winds were blowing up the Eastern states and officials warned of hazardous driving conditions. “A late-season winter storm will continue to shift eastward through the Tennessee Valley and the mid-Atlantic today, making for hazardous travel conditions,” the National Weather Service warned.

A late-winter storm that has made life miserable for parts of the Midwest and the mid-Atlantic region continued north on Thursday, threatening a region that has seen its share of storms in recent months. The current storm, which largely spared the nation's capital but hit hard parts of Virginia and Maryland, was in New Jersey, where it dropped rain and snow. It was expected to move its sloshy way up through to New England, where snow and heavy winds were expected to bring more power outages.

A ferocious winter storm pounded the nation's heartland with howling winds and up to 2 feet of snow Tuesday, crippling airports, closing interstate highways and schools, and disrupting life in ice-glazed areas from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes and from Colorado to Maine. More than a third of the nation shivered, with some states lashed by freezing rain. What one official called a "once in a lifetime" storm promised to dump an avalanche of more snow and sleet on the winter-weary region Wednesday.

NEW YORK - The sixth storm of a long, exhausting winter paralyzed residents up and down the Eastern Seaboard on Thursday as millions struggled with nasty commutes, widespread power outages, government closures, canceled flights and icy messes. More than a foot of snow fell in areas of Connecticut, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey one day after the storm battered much of the South. In a winter that has crushed many snowfall records, the latest storm heaved more grief onto shoulders weary of the relentless cycle of digging out and preparing anew.

The latest in a series of winter storms battered the state, dumping several inches of snow and whipping up strong wind that created whiteout conditions and 3-foot drifts. Authorities closed a long stretch of Interstate 70, from near Denver International Airport almost to the Kansas state line, and a blizzard warning was in effect for much of the eastern and northeastern regions.

Parts of Arizona remained under a winter storm warning on Monday after a snowstorm snarled traffic and forced the closure of many schools. According to the National Weather Service, heavy snow, particularly around Flagstaff and Prescott, hit much of central and eastern Arizona over the weekend and was expected to continue through Monday. The inclement weather is expected to leave the state by Tuesday -- the day of the vernal equinox , which heralds the official beginning of spring.
The first in a series of powerful winter storms is expected to pummel Southern California with thunder, rain and cold, gusty winds this morning as the storm track from the Gulf of Alaska bends south into Southern California. Forecasters said that by late afternoon Orange County should get from half an inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain, accompanied by winds. More rain is expected Sunday and Monday with the arrival of a second wintry weather system heading south along the storm track.

A cold weather system headed toward L.A. County is expected to push snow levels down to 3,000 feet Saturday, prompting road closure alerts and warnings that travel on the Grapevine could be affected. The storm system could bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to as low as 3,000 feet, and up to 6 inches above 4,500 feet, according to the National Weather Service. The snow, combined with wind gusts of up to 55 mph, is expected to make traversing the Grapevine a challenge, forecasters warned.
