(Newser) – It may be March, but the winter weather isn't over. The East Coast is once again getting pummeled by snow, with Washington, DC, and other mid-Atlantic cities expecting between six and 12 inches, AccuWeather reports. Ice, meanwhile, could reach to Charlotte, NC. Virginia, Tennessee, and Delaware are among states declaring states of emergency, CNN reports, and school closings stretch to Dallas.

Here's hoping you don't have to travel today: Driving is likely to be dangerous, and some 2,000 flights have already been canceled, particularly in New York, Philadelphia, and DC, the AP reports. In Washington, where federal offices are closed, few are even taking the subway, the Post reports, and Amtrak has cut service around Wilmington, Delaware. The weekend, CNN notes, saw two deaths tied to weather: An SUV driver hit a wall in Arkansas, and a pedestrian died in Oklahoma's freezing rain. (Read more snow stories.)
