Nevada marijuana industry reacts to possible federal crackdown
Adult-use cannabis became legal in July in Nevada, where the federal prosecutor's office is now in transition. Trump could nominate a replacement at any time or decide to keep Troyer, a career prosecutor and attorney.

Urban and poor drainage flooding, especially where snow is clogging drains.

Winds will also play a major factor in the storm system.

WHAT.Heavy snow and blowing snow possible.

A strip of moderate snow totals (locally 6 inches or more) is possible over the High Plains of eastern Montana, as well as a swath from eastern Nebraska to northwest Iowa, Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin and the western Upper Peninsula of MI. We have to see how the path of the area of low pressure becomes more defined in the next 24 hours. We will have some scattered late day showers.

FRIDAY: Cloudy with rain and rain. A stripe of sleet or freezing rain may occur from parts of northern New England and the interior Northeast to the Ohio Valley.

On top of some ice accumulation, several inches of snow could fall. This will change to an icy mix Friday night. There is still some uncertainty on how much and where the heaviest snow will fall.
