MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — New England residents already buried in snow can expect another wintry blast as a March storm races across the U.S.

The National Weather Service said a storm system that swept across parts of the Great Plains and Upper Midwest on Tuesday should move into Maine, Massachusetts, eastern New York and New Jersey by Wednesday. The system will dip through the mid-Atlantic region, including Washington, D.C., and North Carolina, and extend into Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, southern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas.

In West Virginia, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says he’s mobilizing the West Virginia National Guard to assist with the prospect of heavy rains, snow and possible flooding on Wednesday.

The storm dumped several inches of snow across the northern Plains, making roads treacherous and leading to some traffic fatalities.

An arctic cold front will sweep across the Dakotas and Minnesota in the storm’s wake.
