MSNBC: A massive late winter snowstorm roared out of the Southeast and into the Northeast overnight, idling hundreds of flights and making Monday's morning rush treacherous as motorists contended with nearly a foot of snow in spots.

Winter storm warnings were issued from North Carolina to New Hampshire, with most areas expected to see 8 to 12 inches of snow and higher amounts possible in northern areas.

"It's the first of March, which, as you know, is the month that we say comes in like a lion and out like a lamb," New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday. "It's pretty clear that the lions are getting ready to roar."

The blizzard-like snow -- together with sleet, freezing rain and wind gusts of up to 30 mph -- contributed to four deaths on roads in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and on New York's Long Island.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vt., said a new weather system could bring several more inches of snow to Vermont's Green Mountains Monday night and early Tuesday.

The National Weather Service said a winter weather advisory would remain in effect in Vermont and eastern New York state until early Tuesday.
