A fragmented winter storm system was forecast to bring snow to both the Rocky Mountains and beaches in the Carolinas on Tuesday, forecasters said. While the deadly system was not as strong as Monday — when it canceled 1,000 flights, closed hundreds of schools, and caused chaos on the roads — meteorologists predicted a messy commute linked to snow, ice and rain in parts of Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas.
A thin band of snow looked likely to dump up to one inch on the beaches of North Carolina, the Outer Banks, and possibly as far south as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. While Tuesday was not likely to continue Monday's uninterrupted 2,000-mile band of winter weather from California to the Carolinas, snow was still falling and likely to continue through the day in mountains of New Mexico, southern Colorado and northern Arizona. "Whether you want to go to the mountains or the beach today you could still see snow," Roth said.

Meanwhile, cold records across the Northeast and Midwest continued to tumble thanks to a bitter blast of Arctic cold still lingering from the weekend. Newark, New Jersey, hit a low of 2F on Tuesday, smashing the previous record set 79 years ago and making it the coldest February 24 since records began.
Burlington, Vermont, got down as low as -19F at 4 a.m. ET, according to the National Weather Service, pipping the previous record of -18F set in 1914.
Another blast was already brewing north of the Canadian border, Roth added, and was by Thursday likely to plunge much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation into a fresh freeze.
