More snow and ice for Midwest, mid Atlantic

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Spring is only days away, but winter is not leaving quietly.

Just as the trees started blooming and the birds started chirping, another round of snow and ice was bearing down Sunday on the Midwest and the mid Atlantic.

Snow was expected from the central Appalachians to the Jersey Shore, making the morning commute treacherous for motorists.

Parts of eastern West Virginia, central and west-central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley could see up to 10 inches of snow. Smaller accumulations were expected in Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. Parts of southern Virginia and North Carolina braced for a slippery mix of rain, sleet and snow.

"Travel will be dangerous. It's a late-season storm, but we can't let our guard down," said Amy Bettwy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's office in Sterling, Va.

A band of snow fell across Iowa on Saturday night, following a warm and sunny day. The Des Moines area received about an inch of snow.

Winter's latest assault follows several days of springlike temperatures. Spring officially starts on Thursday.

A late winter snow falls Sunday on the Cabin Creek Covered Bridge near Maysville, Ky. The bridge was recently restored to its late 1800s appearance.
