Transcript for Severe weather moves across the country
Millions bracing for that wicked storm moving in. A live look at New Jersey where the snow is already coming down. Look at this video from Detroit. A woman trying to cover her hot tub, oh, the wicked wind blowing her through. Thankfully she is okay. What a difference a couple of days makes. It was like spring here a couple of days ago of the right now winter is back here in the northeast. We have team coverage across the region starting off with ginger in Pennsylvania. Good morning, ginger. Good morning to you, George. Here it is, solid snow falling here in the poconos but I wanted to show you what we've accumulated already. At least 3 inches in some spots and this is kind of a light fluffy snow for our mid-march storm. I wanted to bring you to the radar. It is not just here that it is showing it is active from Ohio all the way through Connecticut and Massachusetts. There are severe storms that have been moving through the south but that energy that is bringing the snow for your morning commute is right now in parts of eastern Pennsylvania, New York City through southern Connecticut and you can see winter weather advisories in place. Well, those go through today. The winter storm warnings for eastern Long Island and the cape because they're going to get more snowy I'll show you in a moment. Let's time it out. The bulk moving through your morning hours and you can see around 10:30 there, that's where the heaviest know is falling then it wraps up and gives eastern Long Island and cape cod just a little extra punch. They'll see anywhere from 3 to 5 or 6 plus inches and done with this by the time we reach our 7:00 hour. By tonight it is done and then some serious cold air will filter in. All right. We have so much more coming up. For now we'll head on back to George. Messy morning ahead for so many. Now to rob Marciano on the New Jersey turnpike for that commuting story. Good morning, George. Yeah, the snow started shortly before sunrise and intensity has only picked up. You can see the roads on this major roadway, interstates as they're still wet and ground temperature still above freezing because it's been so warm. On the sides it's already beginning to accumulate as this storm that was born in the heartland ramps up. Overnight winter weather alerts blowing across nine states from 110-mile-per-hour winds at the top of mt. Washington to Lind Hurst, Ohio, where little Madison was taken for a ride. Luckily she wasn't hurt. In New York, the whipping winds uprooting trees. From New York to New Jersey commuters waking up to snow covered roads. Residents in Michigan also battling the strong wind gusts. Over a half a million people still without power there and watch what happens when this woman tries to secure her hot tub cover. In the midwest, golf ball size hail like this. Destroying the windshields of these storm chasers. Windshield is gone. Listen closely. You can hear the ringing of the ice hitting the deck. One storm chaser in Missouri spotting hail from this massive supercell thunderstorm. Back to robin. Yep. With rain -- snowfall rates 1 to inches per hour we will see accumulations on the roadways but the top side accumulation of this storm about a half a foot so most schools, most businesses are open which means most people are on the roads which are only going to get worse especially this morning. Robin. Uh-huh. I'm here for you, rob. Thank you. We go to gio Benitez who is in peekskill, New York, for how it's afaxing travel. Good morning. Reporter: Hey, robin, good morning to you as this snow gets stronger no doubt it will likely affect all of these train systems here in the northeast. In fact, we already know that New Jersey is planning to share its service with buses across the northeast and that's because a million commuters rely on that service. Let's talk about right now what's happening in the air. We're already seeing 130 delays in the air and more than 250 cancellations, robin. All right. Okay, gio, thanks. To ginger. She is, of course, in Pennsylvania for more on the snow and how it's affecting schools. Right, ginger? Right, so almost 100 schools in the New York metro area already closed or delayed and I anticipate that will keep moving on up as we learn numbers through new England. I want to zoom in on the heaviest snow totals just to let you know. Sometimes we show you this broad map but you don't get to see your hometown. Anywhere in Rhode Island southern and coastal you're in that 6 plus inches. Not only cold this weekend, another storm coming for next week which I will tell you about
