COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Spring is still more than two weeks away and it is clearly still winter in parts of South Carolina.
A winter weather advisory is posted in the northeastern corner of the state. Some snow and sleet is possible t around Darlington and Dillon from Monday night into Tuesday morning.
The National Weather Service is warning of freezing conditions along the south coast. Low temperatures Tuesday were expected to be around 29 degrees from Summerville and Moncks Corner to Walterboro and Allendale.
Temperatures were expected to drop to the freezing mark along the coast from Charleston to Hilton Head Island.
In Washington, school is canceled, buses are halted and federal government workers are staying home as the nation's capital braces for a storm expected to dump a foot of snow on parts of the East Coast.
The latest frigid blow threatened as much as 10 inches of snow by the end of Monday in Washington, Baltimore and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region. Up to 6 inches of snow was predicted to the north in Philadelphia, while nearly a foot of snow was expected in parts of New Jersey.
Residents say they're sick of the harsh winter. Nicole Peace of Arlington, Va., says snow days are no treat for her family because she and her husband have to work from home.
The forecasts were enough to shut much of Washington down.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
