March 4 A storm was forecast to hit the north
central United States, dumping 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm) of
snow from North Dakota to northern Iowa and Illinois on Monday,
the National Weather Service said.
Locally heavier amounts of up to one foot (30.5 cm) of snow
are possible and some areas could see freezing rain, leading to
hazardous travel conditions, forecasters said. Temperatures in
the 20s and 30s were expected.
The storm was forecast to move east, reaching the Ohio
Valley, the mid-Atlantic states and the Washington, D.C., area
by Tuesday evening.
"One of the more challenging aspects of this storm will be
the snowfall potential over areas along (and) east of
Interstate-95 in Virginia and Maryland," the forecasters said.
