US-WEATHER-STORM-STELLA

Snow and ice cover early blooms on trees near the US Capitol in Washington, DC March 14, 2017
Winter Storm Stella dumped snow and sleet Tuesday across the northeastern United States where thousands of flights were canceled and schools closed, but appeared less severe than initially forecast. After daybreak the National Weather Service (NWS) revised down its predicted snow accumulation, saying that the storm had moved across the coast.
