Senators to hear opening arguments in Trump impeachment trial


Opening arguments begin Wednesday in Donald Trump's impeachment trial after an emotional first day that wrenched senators and the nation back to the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Their arguments were meandering at times, leaving Trump fuming over his lawyers' performance and allies questioning the defense strategy. Some called for yet another shakeup to his legal team.

When is the next snowstorm coming?


The parade of snowstorms will continue their march through New York City and the Tri-State area over the next few days as even colder air settles across the region.
