It will be a cold and snowy day for the eastern half of this country. Look at this storm. It's a beast. It's big, it's fast. It stretches from the midwest through the northeast. Our weather team is tracking this. We're going to kick it off with Alex Perez, in Chicago, where the storm has already hit and where they're expecting blizzard-like conditions. Alex, good morning to you. Hey, good morning, Paula. A big deal. 100 million people in the path of this storm. Here in Chicago, we're bracing for the worst. The snow began falling late last night. It's not expected to pound the area until later today. At Chicago's airports, more than 1,000 flights already canceled. Crews are working hard to try to keep the runways clear.

We're looking at probably 6 to 16 in 12 inches, I think, possibility more than that. Notice the tight gradient there in New York. Just north of the city, significantly more snow. Tomorrow will be a slick go. Dan? All right, rob. Thank you. We want to remind everybody to
