COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Winter has a grip on the eastern half of the U.S., and forecasters say the bitter cold could last the rest of the week.

Snow will continue to fall on parts of northeast Ohio that already have two feet or more on the ground. Areas of West Virginia could get up to eight inches of snow by Wednesday morning.

Western and Central Kentucky got a dusting of snow overnight. Three to five inches are expected.

In Maine, searchers continue to look for an 18-year-old snowmobiler who disappeared shortly after the storm started Friday night. And a search is on for the body of a seven-year-old boy who fell through ice into a river in southern Wisconsin.

Hard freeze warnings have been issued for the south, where farmers are scrambling to save their crops.
