The leading edge of a monster snowstorm arrived Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C., threatening to dump as many as 76 centimeters of powder on parts of the Middle Atlantic region and bring record accumulations to the U.S. capital.The Weather Channel said more than 85 million people in at least 20 states were covered by either a blizzard warning, winter storm watch, winter storm warning, winter weather advisory, or freezing rain advisory.AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said Washington's snowfall could eclipse the "Snowmageddon" storm of 2010 that dropped 45.2 centimeters. If forecasts prove accurate, the storm could rival the 1922 Knickerbocker storm, which dumped a record 71 centimeters on the city. After the storm arrives late Friday in New York City, snow accumulation could reach up to 30 centimeters, with winds gusting to 80 kph, creating blizzard conditions.
