Upper Midwest, parts of Northeast prep for another big winter storm

No Comments


ABC News(NEW YORK) — Just as a powerful storm finally passes through the Midwest, yet another is on its way to dump even more snow in that region as well as the Northeast.

Parts of New Hampshire received as much as 13 inches of snow on Wednesday. In Maryland and West Virginia, half an inch of ice accumulated. Erie, Pennsylvania, got about 3.2 inches of snow, giving the city 152.1 inches for the season — its most ever.

Ahead of a new storm blasting through the Upper Midwest, 12 states from Montana to Ohio are heeding winter-weather alerts.

The storm system is making its way out of the Northern Rockies on Thursday morning, spreading snow down to the Dakotas.

By Thursday evening, snowfall will stretch from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to just west of Chicago.

Late Thursday, snow will begin falling in big cities, including Chicago, and continue for most of the night. Driving conditions will be hazardous, if not impossible, in areas stretching past Cleveland.

Snow likely will continue in that region through Friday’s evening rush hour and move into the Northeast.

The heaviest snowfalls are expected in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, where Chicago may see its biggest snowfall in more than a year.

"Luke-alikes" and lots of wine: Luke Combs, Michael Ray, Lauren Alaina, Midland and Carly Pearce are 2018's New Faces

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Randy HolmesWednesday night in Nashville, Carly Pearce, Michael Ray, Midland, Lauren Alaina and Luke Combs followed in the footsteps of superstars like Reba McEntire, George Strait and Tim McGraw, playing the New Faces show at Music City’s Omni Hotel.

Since 1970, the closing show of Country Radio Seminar has predicted which artists will go on to find lasting success in the music business. In the 2018 class, every member has already scored their first #1, with Michael, Lauren and Luke each having had two chart toppers.

Carly’s future tour mates Rascal Flatts made a special appearance in her intro video, congratulating the Kentucky native by giving her one of her favorite things: a bottle of wine. By the clip’s end, Carly was so weighted down with vino, she could barely walk. The bit closed with a phone call from her Country Music Freaks tour partner Blake Shelton, who also sent along a bottle — this time, a giant one.

“I moved to Nashville nine years ago because all I’ve ever wanted to do is sing country music,” Carly said, as she breezed through a powerful set that included “Careless,” “If My Name Was Whiskey,” “Hide the Wine” and her breakthrough hit, “Every Little Thing.”

In his intro video, Michael Ray remembered his grandfather who fostered his love for classic country music. In addition to his hits “Kiss You in the Morning,” “Get to You” and “Think a Little Less,” the Florida native debuted a new ballad: “Her World or Mine,” which will be one of the tracks on his forthcoming sophomore album, due sometime this year.

Midland came out wearing capes reminiscent of Elvis, after a comic spoof of a Billboard interview gone wrong. “What a difference a year makes!” lead singer Mark Wystrach observed, as the trio offered a performance that included “Make a Little,” “Burn Out” and “Drinkin’ Problem.”

Lauren Alaina appeared on stage seated behind a piano, accompanying herself as she started with her emotional ballad, “Three.” She followed her current single, “Doin’ Fine,” with a solo version of her #1 with Kane Brown, “What Ifs,” as well her first song to make it to the top, “Road Less Traveled.”

The night’s final performance came from Luke Combs, who explored the “Luke-alikes” phenomenon in his intro video, explaining he often sees men with red beards who look like him at concerts these days.

Once the curtain parted, it turned out it wasn’t Luke at all who was standing at center stage. He shooed away the “Luke-alike” to start his set with the track “Honky Tonk Highway,” with a snippet of Brooks and Dunn‘s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” thrown in.

“Thank you for believing in a regular dude from North Carolina,” Luke remarked, before doing “When It Rains It Pours,” as well as his new single, “One Number Away.” “This is the song that changed my life,” he added, as he launched into “Hurricane.”

Netflix unveils trailer for season 2 of "Jessica Jones"

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

NETFLIX(NEW YORK) — Netflix has released the first trailer for the second season of its acclaimed Marvel series, Jessica Jones. Krysten Ritter returns as the reluctant superhero-turned-private eye, and this time around, she searches for answers about who she is, and how she got her superpowers.

Season one showed viewers the Jones believed her powers were the result of a tragic accident that killed her family, but as the trailer shows, something much more sinister is at play. Apparently, she was “brought back from the dead.”

“Your powers were a side effect,” a mysterious woman tells the hard-drinking hero. To which Jessica replies, “How many others are there like me?”

Also returning for season 2 are Jess’ friends Malcolm and Patsy Walker; the latter, played by Rachael Taylor, seems to be taking on the mantle of her comic book alter-ego Hellcat.

“Jessica Jones might not want a sidekick, but she needs one,” says Patsy.

Also returning is Carrie-Ann Moss as steely lawyer Jeri Hogarth, and David Tennant as Jessica’s nemesis, Killgrave. It’s likely that we’ll only see Killgrave in flashback, since Jones killed him at the end of the first season.

Jessica Jones season 2 hits Netflix on March 8, 2018 — which is, not coincidentally, International Women’s Day.

Marvel is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.
