A Wintry storm bearing down across the country with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind is expected to continue to cause problems across the nation Tuesday. Monday was a slower commute than normal in the Washington, D.C. area. Ice caused power lines and trees to topple, triggering power outages and closing many schools. Now there are worries Tuesday could end up being a whole lot worse thanks to a new storm sweeping in from the Southwest. Forecasters say up to a half-foot of snow could fall Tuesday between Baltimore and Washington. That could cause a ripple effect at the nation's airports where 1,400 flights were already cancelled Monday and 3,200 were cancelled Sunday. Wintry weather also continues to plague much of the country from New England through Pennsylvania - to Dallas, Denver and Arkansas - which all remain in a deep freeze.
