Early morning commuters wait to cross the street as snow flurries begin to fall in Washington, Tuesday, March 25, 2014. As the East Coast shivers through an unusually cold early spring, parts of the Mid-Atlantic and New England are bracing for a nor'easter that could bring additional snow. The National Weather Service says a powerful low pressure system will develop off the Mid-Atlantic coast Tuesday night. Where and how much snow falls will depend on the storm's track, according to the weather service.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The calendar may say it's spring, but the mid-Atlantic region is seeing snow again.

The National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for much of the region Tuesday. The advisories warn that periods of snow could make travel difficult, with slippery roads and reduced visibility.

The forecast for the Baltimore-Washington area, Maryland's Eastern Shore and parts of Delaware includes 2 to 4 inches of snow accumulation. The forecast calls for 1 to 2 inches in western and southern Maryland.

The weather service says with the 1.5 inches that has already fallen, Dulles International Airport has unofficially surpassed the previous third highest seasonal snowfall since records start there in 1962. The previous third place of 50.1 inches was set in 2002.
