A deadly winter storm kept a tight grip on much of the United States on Monday as cold, snow and ice spread across the East Coast, snarling traffic and knocking out power to thousands. As much as 5 inches of snow were forecast for Monday night into Tuesday and much of the area from Virginia to coastal New England were under winter weather advisories, the National Weather Service (NWS) said in a forecast. Bitter Arctic air in the upper Great Plains and Rocky Mountains is expected to persist through Wednesday, with the coldest weather extending from the Nevada-Utah region into Minnesota, the NWS said. "I don't think things are going to warm up any time soon," said Bruce Sullivan, an NWS meteorologist.
