Transcript for Easter snow slams its way across the country
Good evening. And happy Easter. Thanks for joining us on this Sunday. I'm Tom llamas. We begin tonight with the Easter snow from the dakotas to the northeast. Drivers facing heavy snow and whiteout conditions near kearney, Nebraska. And the system now threatening a messy commute from D.C. To Philadelphia, New York to Boston, with snow, rain, and temperatures that feel nothing like spring. Sam champion leads us off. Reporter: Tonight, back to back wintery blasts disrupting Easter plans for millions, from the plains to the great Lakes. The first storm, dumping more than ten inches of snow across central Minnesota. Treacherous driving conditions triggering more than 300 accidents statewide. This time of year, we're pretty much sick of it. Reporter: Just outside Minneapolis, seven inches. It was really wet and thick and heavy. Reporter: With the bitter cold wind chills, the twin cities and Chicago seeing their coldest Easter in easily a decade. So, it's mother nature's April fool's to us. Reporter: The second blast causing whiteout conditions along I-80 in Nebraska. Slick roads also responsible for this multicar pileup in Wyoming. Here, I-80 closed down for several hours overnight, backing up traffic for miles. In northern Wisconsin, up to a foot of snow. Authorities there warning drivers to beware of black ice. You're not going to be able to stop very fast, you're going to slide for sure. Reporter: And in north Dakota, up to eight inches, making those colorful Easter eggs a whole lot easier to see. Hard to hide the eggs with all that snow. Sam, you were telling me, this is a very fast-moving storm? About 50 miles an hour. Going straight for the philadelphia/new York area. But let's show everyone where it is right now. St. Louis, getting snow, ice, and sleet right now. But look how quickly it moves. Right for the new jersey/long island area. Around 4:00 A.M., it's been a problem for driving, and continue. 2 to 3 inches around the city in grassy spots. In many places, it will stay above freezing for the entire event. It will be completely gone by about 11:00 A.M., noon, tomorrow morning.
