Snow, sleet and freezing rain continue to plague portions of the Mid-Atlantic states this afternoon as the storm that brought ice to the Southeast yesterday strengthens off the coast of northeastern North Carolina. One to four inches of snow are likely from extreme northeastern Virginia to southern New Jersey as the storm moves out to sea. The snow in D. C. is expected to end shortly. Meanwhile, Philadelphia probably will see only flurries, mostly in the southern part of the metro area. Immediately south of the area of snow, a mix of freezing rain and sleet is icing central portions of the DelMarVa Peninsula.


In the West, winter storm warnings remain posted for northeast New Mexico, the northwest Texas Panhandle and the western half of the Oklahoma Panhandle. Up to 18 inches of snow are expected in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico with 5 to 9 inches on the adjacent high plains. The warned areas in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma are expected to see 4 to 6 inches as an upper-air storm spins eastward toward the southern Plains. Guymon, Okla., was reporting heavy snow at noon.
