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.

A winter storm hitting the Midwest and East Coast prompted airlines to cancel two dozen flights scheduled to either depart or arrive at LAX today, airport officials said. The flights include 19 arrivals and five departures scheduled from 8:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The majority of those arriving flights were scheduled from Boston, Chicago and New York, said Amanda Parsons of Los Angeles International Airport.

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.

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.

Snow began falling in parts of the Northeast on Tuesday, the vanguard of a major storm that has already led to the cancellation of thousands of flights, an unexpected closure of some federal offices and even prompted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to drop plans for his inauguration party. The storm could bring eight to 12 inches of snow to Philadelphia and the New York metropolitan area and perhaps more than a foot in Boston as it works its way through New England. The storm -- an unwelcome sequel to the polar vortex whose icy grip choked the Midwest and East earlier this month -- is also expected to bring wind chills as nasty as 10 degrees below zero. “A wave of low pressure is developing along a strong Arctic front currently sinking southward through the Mid-Atlantic, and this is expected to develop into a strong surface low off the coast of New England,” the National Weather Service said.
