Accu-Weather's Joe Lundberg says three-to-six inches of snow is expected here within 24 hours. However, he wouldn't at all be surprised if we pick up a bit more. "I'll tell you what, if the storm tracks a little more south, I think we could then be in the six-to-ten inch range," Lundberg says.

Speaking on NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, Christie said he knew the GOP race was over in the first debate when six of the eight candidates on the stage said they would support Trump even if he's "a convicted felon." Christie said he hasn't looked into running as a third-party candidate and has not had any talks with the No Labels movement.
