Blizzard Pounds Mid-Atlantic to New York

February 10, 2010

Snow, wind and slush hounded eastern commuters early today as blizzard warnings from Baltimore to New York City heralded the second major storm in a region already largely blanketed by weekend snowfall.

More than 10 inches of new snow fell before dawn in parts of Maryland that had received up to 30 inches just a few days earlier.

The National Weather Service says the storm has buried Baltimore under record snow for the season and put Washington within inches of a high from 1898-99.

More than 5 inches have fallen in both cities since yesterday, making the total for Baltimore 65.6 inches since December, breaking the previous record of 62.5 inches from 1995-96. Washington is only about 4 inches away from its record of 54.4 inches from 1898-99.
