Rain, some heavy, and thunderstorms to affect the area from late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning
A taste of spring is in store for the northeastern U.S. for the final week of March while the storm-battered region gets a break from nor'easters for several days.
The same storm bringing heavy snow to parts of the Midwest will turn eastward and affect the southern Appalachians and the lower mid-Atlantic coast into Saturday night.
The fourth nor'easter to slam the East Coast in March brought record-breaking snow to parts of Pennsylvania and New York, while a cyclone produced severe flooding and mudslides in Madagascar.
The first day of spring passed this week, but flu viruses continue to circulate in the United States. The flu has been severe this season with experts estimating that it may cost the nation nearly $1 billion more than last year.
