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.
