Another snow day
March truly comes in like a lion dumping ice and snow throughout the tri-state. Roads are treacherous and most schools are closed. We will have extended live coverage on Sunrise this morning beginning at 4am, with reporters out on the roads, and law enforcement and highway officials providing us live updates.
As mentioned, most schools in the area are closed today, and we'll have real time updates on the bottom of the screen and here at 14news.com. We'll also have constant reports on our 14 news Facebook page as well, as many school officials now have another snow make-up day headache on their hands.
Meteorologist David Wire is back with us, in for Byron this morning to track this system for us. He says snow showers will exit during the day today with cold arctic air settling in. Temperatures will only top out in the mid 20s with cold gusty north winds continuing throughout the day. Partly cloudy skies will move in for Tuesday and the rest of the week as our most recent winter storm continues to move away from the tri-state. Below average temperatures will stick around through the work week.
The Oscar goes too..
"12 Years a Slave" has won best picture at this year's Academy Awards. The best actor and actress statues go to Matthew McConaughey for "Dallas Buyers Club" and Cate Blanchett for her role in "Blue Jasmine." Jared Leto won best supporting actor for "Dallas Buyers Club" and best supporting actress went to Lupita Nyong'o for "12 Years a Slave." An Oscar's wrap on Sunrise.
So stay warm and be careful out there, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
