NATIONAL SUMMARY

Yet another snowstorm will pound the mid-Atlantic and

Northeast tomorrow, on the second day of spring. Snowfall

amounts up to a foot will be possible in the Interstate-95

corridor from near Boston to Philadelphia, as well as in

much of eastern Pennsylvania, northern Maryland and northern

New Jersey. Snowfall rates could reach 1 to 3 inches per

hour in the heaviest snow bands, which could lead to

whiteout conditions and snow-covered roadways. Major travel

disruptions, power outages and roof collapses are all

possible from the combination of heavy wet snow and gusty

winds up to 50 mph. Elsewhere, cold and brisk conditions

will continue to chill areas from the Southeast to the

Midwest and northern Plains. A storm system will barrel into

California with heavy rain and snow in the Sierra Nevada.
