>> where our weather is making news tonight a lot of americans feed reminding tonight it is actually spring. at least the calendar tells us it starts today. with the jet stream dipping way down, a lot of temperatures are way below normal for this time of year. wind chills around zero this morning in parts of the midwest. and across the northern half of the country from coast to coast really the snow cover is hanging in there. there's yet another winter weather system setting up for this weekend in the plains and the rockies. what a difference a year makes. those who can recall it remember last spring was the warmest ever on record in this country.
