A winter storm brought a rare white Christmas to parts of the South of the US, with forecasters predicting 6 to 10 inches (15 to 25 centimeters) of snow for Washington and blizzard conditions for New York City and New England.

Early Sunday, winter storm warnings covered northern Georgia, the Carolinas, Washington, Delaware, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and the eastern sections of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York.

The weather gave the Carolinas its first white Christmas in decades. Columbia, South Carolina, had its first significant Christmas snow since weather records were first kept in 1887.

Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina declared states of emergency early Sunday or Saturday night. As North Carolina road crews tried to clear snowy and icy highways, Mid-Atlantic officials spent Christmas Day preparing for up to a foot (30 centimeters) of snow, plunging temperatures and high winds.
