To the upside down weather going on from coast to coast. Weather springlike weather in the east and arctic blast in the west. Didn't even need a jacket so what's going on? Our meteorologist and birthday girl, I can say that on air, happy birthday ginger. Thank you very much. Tracking it all. Yes, I'm tracking it. Straight to that. Forget about the birthday for now, new york and washington, d.C. Are going to be warmer today than los angeles and phoenix. Things are flip-flopped and in the middle misery. Temperatures transposed. Record heat in the east, yes, that's tennis in wisconsin in january. It is really heavy. Reporter: And in southern california, heavy snow plus wind so strong it slammed this tree right on to this guy's car. What can I say? Mother nature took over. Reporter: And in the heartland there was sleet from oklahoma to st. Louis. In louisiana and kentucky tra dra the make leftovers from a day of severe weather chaos. Our patio is in the neighbor's yard. Reporter: That used to be a church in western kentucky. Un conficonfirmed micro blast leveled it. They need to get shelter. This is an example to make them understand it. Reporter: Too much rain. More than a dozen states are either inundated or bracing for floods. One of those in nashville. You can see the heart will fall from louisville to nashville, the 2 plus but locally 3 in some areas and that cold front spreads behind it. It is not just arctic, it is gosh cold. These are actual morning temperatures so windchills will be even colder. Phoenix this morning, right at that freezing mark then all the heat, yesterday, atlanta broke a 123-year-old record hitting 76. A lot at 55. Washington, d.C. At 62. We'll do that, as well.
