Winter storm wreaks havoc on the Pacific Northwest
Well, the west coast is digging out this morning from
a major winter storm that dumped several inches of snow.
They are bracing for even more, believe it or not.
Let's go to rob with the latest. Good morning, rob.
There is more action getting more active here on both
coasts. You can see the radar getting frisky with rain
and snow and showing up in the middleon of the
country ands is what brought all that snow to the

down to California, and this is as parts of the

dropping off to 29, snow developing south and west of

slick travel tomorrow morning before the temperatures get to 40
degrees. Another round of snow Monday into Tuesday, and Tuesday
is actually an accuweather alert for the accumulating snow, ice,
and rain to we'll have much more on the storms
that are heading towards the east coast. Will Boston finally
get dig out of the snow deficit, Dan? We'll see.
