PHILADELPHIA — A quick storm was expected to drop several inches of snow on the East Coast today before rain and warmer temperatures give worn-out residents a reprieve from shoveling and shivering.
Days after storms paralyzed the Southeast and Northeast with heavy snow, ice and massive power outages, the National Weather service predicted that many East Coast states will see 3 to 6 inches of snow today. A storm moved in overnight from the Great Lakes and through the Mid-Atlantic. Much of the accumulation will complicate morning and late afternoon commutes. Some areas also will get rain, sleet or a snow-rain mixture.
