Another round of late-winter snow walloped the mid-Atlantic Sunday night into Monday.
Washington, D.C., received 7.2 inches of snow from the storm, making it the third-largest snowfall to hit the city so late in the season. The only storms that produced more snow in the second half of the month of March occurred in 1942 when 11.2 inches fell March 28 to 29 and when a foot fell March 27 to 28 in 1891.
This storm is also the largest March snowstorm in the city since 8.4 inches fell March 9, 1999. As the 10th-largest March storm in Washington, D.C., it knocked the historic blizzard of 1993 off the list of 10 most prolific March snowfalls.
Philadelphia now has 67.4 inches of snow for the season after this storm, making it the second-snowiest winter on record for the city.
Travel delays were significant, as flight delays and cancellations were in the thousands, with some airports even closing runways for a time.
