Video Transcript

- Tonight, the snow and ice, as it's wont to do, is pushing its way to the Northeast. With the forecast, here's CBS's Lonnie Quinn. Lonnie, good evening.

LONNIE QUINN: Good evening to you, Major. That storm that you were just showing us, which started off this morning in Texas, has now made its way into the Ohio Valley. So what you're looking at from Cleveland to Cincinnati, this is a snow storm for you. You'll pick up about a foot of snow.

For the East Coast cities, well, we have some concerns about icing. We do have ice storm warnings outside of New York City, but we believe it's going to get too warm. It all turns to rain. All right?

Now, it's going to be anything but too warm if you look down to the South again. Look at how out of the norm these temperatures are. For Dallas, Texas, your temperatures are running 49 degrees colder than they should be. For Oklahoma City, they're running 51 degrees colder than they should be. To put that into perspective, tomorrow morning, Oklahoma City will be 11 below zero. That's colder than Anchorage, Alaska has been all winter long.

And with that cold air in place, nothing's going to melt. And there's another system that will come into the area tomorrow. That system then moves to the Northeast. This time it looks like snow for the Northeast. And if you are looking for a place to escape the cold air because 200 million Americans are battling the freeze, you go to Miami, Florida.

Miami, Florida today felt like it was over 90 degrees. The first time it has felt like over 90 degrees this early in the season. So maybe there's-- not too many people are flying. Maybe a lot of people are walking to Miami right about now, Major.

- A Miami state of mind. Lonnie Quinn, thank you very much.
