US East Coast blizzard, January 2016

Editor's note: The winter storm that has more than 85 million Americans under watches or warnings is gaining strength as it moves toward the East Coast Friday afternoon. Blizzard warnings are in effect for areas stretching from Washington, D.C., to Long Island, N.Y., and the National Weather Service warns of life-threatening conditions overnight stretching through Saturday. The system has already left up to a foot of snow in western North Carolina, and Nashville has recorded the most snow since a monster storm hit the city in 2003. - Tricia
