WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal government says its offices in the Washington area will be closed Thursday because of a new round of winter weather expected in the region.

Forecasts show much of the South will see temperatures drop 30 to 45 degrees in a 24-hour period thanks to yet another arctic cold front. Some locations may even see their coldest temperatures ever recorded so late in the season including Nashville and Louisville, Kentucky, where temperatures may drop into the single digits.
