Seattle, already having its snowiest February in 70 years, set for even more

first_imgTainar/iStock(SEATTLE) — The second winter storm in a week brought 7.9 inches of snow to Seattle on Friday night and Saturday.Nearly 2 feet of snow fell in the mountains outside the city of Seattle, which has received 10.6 inches of snow so far in February, the most snow for the month in 70 years.After receiving fresh snow, the city is likely going to see its coldest morning temperature since November 2010.The area is digging out from the snow, right as two more storms are lined up to hit the area in the next two days. New winter storm watches have been posted for the metro area.Additionally, winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories are posted for much of the rest of the West, while the region deals with mountain snow and gusty winds.Early Sunday, heavy snow and rain are affecting parts of California. Some of this heavy rain and snow will make it down to Southern California later in the day with snow accumulations possible in the Grapevine.By the evening, another Pacific storm will arrive in the Northwest and bring snow to Seattle again, with likely both rain and snow falling in Portland. Another more potent storm will arrive in Seattle and bring heavy snow by Monday night and early Tuesday.Locally, 5 to 8 inches of snow will fall through Tuesday night in Seattle. With that type of additional snowfall, Seattle will be making a run at its snowiest February on record.Storms move in Midwest, NortheastOne of the storms that hit the West Coast is reorganizing in the central U.S. Sunday morning, and already bringing some light snow to the Central Plains. This storm will quickly race off to the east and bring snow from Minnesota to Pennsylvania later Sunday.This storm then falls apart overnight and is suppressed from making any further movement toward the Northeast. Another storm quickly comes out of the West on Monday and brings heavy rain toward the Mississippi River Valley, and snow once again from Minnesota to New Jersey.On Tuesday morning, snow will extend from Minneapolis to possibly New York City. Snow is likely to change to ice and rain along the Interstate 95 corridor on Tuesday morning.However, a developing coastal low will increase precipitation in New England by Wednesday morning. Much of the Northeast will see heavy precipitation.The result of this unsettled pattern could bring 6 inches of snow to parts of New England and parts of the Midwest through Tuesday night. Some ice accumulation looks possible from Michigan to New Jersey. And 2 to 4 inches of rain, esulting in flash flooding, are possible in spots in the Mississippi River Valley.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Quite a job keeping up

first_imgWhen Luxembourger Joseph Lentz left his post as the budget section’s deputy director-general, the betting was that his assistant Elda Stifani would take his place.She has since been given the director’s job in the translation service so the budget post remains unfilled, although it has now been downgraded to a simple directorship.To make matters even more complicated, the post of deputy director-general (the old budget job) has now been transferred to the French-headed legal service, where it has been taken by Antonio Sacchettini.last_img read more

Newcastle ‘by far the most pressing’, can’t be faulted for efforts…

first_imgAccording to French newspaper L’Equipe, the 25-year-old has been a target for Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and two newly promoted Premier League clubs, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers.All four clubs have made offers and Rafael Benitez’s side were ‘by far the most pressing’ club for Plea. Sevilla’s director of football also contacted Nice to see if they have any chance of signing the forward.Plea is aware of the offers from clubs across Europe, but the report claims he does not see himself playing in the Premier League, and Newcastle are going to lose out.Borussia Mönchengladbach have won the race to sign Plea this summer. The Frenchman will travel to Germany to undergo his medical tomorrow and sign a four-year contract with the Bundesliga outfit.Nice director general Julien Fournier confirms Mönchengladbach was Plea’s “first choice” club to join this summer.“Mönchengladbach was the first choice of the player and we did everything to comply, from the moment the interests of the club were respected. There was no question of getting into a bidding war, given Alassane’s exemplary behaviour on and off the pitch,” said Fournier.Newcastle’s efforts for the player have been repeatedly pushed, and again today by L’Equipe, so the club can’t be faulted for trying. But when a player prefers a different league there’s not a lot can be done.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndoDating.comThe Most Handsome Guys In Hong Kong On This Dating SiteDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Sarri: ‘Juve couldn’t be beautiful’

first_imgMaurizio Sarri maintains Juventus always planned to take the sting out of Torino before winning late on. “This was not a game where we could try to be beautiful.” The Bianconeri were again far from convincing, but scraped a 1-0 win thanks to Matthijs de Ligt volleying in a Gonzalo Higuain knockdown on a corner. It allowed Juve to stay top of the table, despite Inter beating Bologna 2-1 in stoppages earlier this evening. “This was a very difficult game and it was clear Torino would be extremely determined from the start, so the first phase of the plan was just to contain them and take control of the match later on, then close it towards the end,” the coach told DAZN. “It was a tough game, full of intensity, physicality and tough tackling. It’s not really suited to our characteristics, but we managed to get it done. “This was not the game where we could try to be beautiful. The opposition’s characteristics, current form and the state of the pitch all meant we were forced to play with elements that aren’t our usual approach, so it’s reassuring that we were able to win anyway. Sarri was asked about some of the squad rotation this evening, just days before the Champions League trip to Lokomotiv Moscow. “Bernardeschi has more dynamism and forward runs, whereas Ramsey is better at passing. Ramsey was out injured for a month, but I don’t feel he still has 90 minutes in his legs. It is good to have players who can come off the bench and change gears. “Alex Sandro seemed a little tired and it was only right to give him some rest. Mattia De Sciglio had been out for a while, so he was a little rusty, but once he too got into the rhythm, he did better.” Former Ajax defender De Ligt was at the centre of attention, as he risked giving away another penalty for handball, then scored the winner. “De Ligt struggled in the first 20 minutes, but then got into the game and had a very good second half. He is 19 years old, comes from a much more open and less tactical league than ours, the kind where errors happen and nobody notices. “It’s only natural he’ll need a period of apprenticeship and he is improving.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

Hiccups in fairplay

first_imgConducting elections in a country this big is certainly a task. The Election Commission of India (EC) has been in news for a while now. With shufflings in the civil administration, notices issued over misconduct, VVPAT confrontation with opposition parties, banning biopics over MCC, failing EVMs in the first phase and scrutiny over its powers, its been busy at the office for election officials. The Supreme Court has been involved in several of these confrontations, coming out as guiding light ensuring a free and fair mood of elections more than EC on occasions. Pleas filed in the top court have at the very least promised to strengthen loose ends so that there is nothing to even remotely blemish the electoral process’s sanctity. With the Supreme Court’s scrutiny, ECI discovered itself empowered to bar Mayawati, CM Yogi, Maneka Gandhi, SP leader Azam Khan from campaigning over objectionable statements uttered in their campaign speeches. Flouting the Model Code of Conduct has been a recurring feature but effective measures have been deployed to ensure a neutral atmosphere. The free and fair argument has seen some severe tussling in the south though. Tamil Nadu’s Chief Electoral Officer had revealed cash worth Rs 135.41 crore seized in the state since the Model Code of Conduct came into force. Now that is a grave threat to election flaring ECI’s apprehensions. Monetary influence in the Lok Sabha elections is a serious mishap on the Constitutional body’s part and matters in Tamil Nadu do not augur too well. Last week’s Income Tax revelation of Rs 11.53 crore concealed in a cement godown belonging to an associate of a DMK leader in Vellore district had pushed EC to consider the cancellation of polls in Vellore. While DMK maintains that these raids were politically motivated, that was not enough to convince EC which then reportedly wrote to the President regarding the cancellation of polls there. Finally cancelled just a day before Vellore was to vote in the second phase of the Lok Sabha polls, Supreme Court had urged EC to peruse the plea which cited a rise in cash-for-votes instances in Tamil Nadu. Citing the recent raids on the premises of DMK leaders in Vellore district, the petition, filed by a social worker claimed that the act of buying votes denied “an equal voice for some voters and an equal chance for some candidates”. The petition demanded heightened awareness through media over the mala fide act of buying votes and also called for more flying squads to increase vigilance. Before calling off the poll in Vellore, the apex court had served EC a copy of the petition to examine and act accordingly. The petition only highlights and adds to the problem of money and ensuing influence which EC is well aware of and working on. Also Read – A compounding difficultyCancelling election in Vellore is not the first instance of its kind since back in May 2016, the Election Commission recommended cancelling assembly by-polls in Avarakurichi and Thanjavur, saying it was the first time Indian elections were being cancelled because voters were bribed. The two elections were held in November 2016. While awareness definitely aids in curbing cash-for-vote instances, but, at the same time, can also be ignored. Money is a lucrative commodity and it definitely moves masses. It may not be done very rampantly but in pockets, cash can be slid in and votes can be amassed without the EC knowing of such malpractice. It is necessary to ensure that parties do not act hastily with their evil plots and cherish a sense of impunity. Apart from elections being cancelled (and likely postponed), candidates can be failed or parties can be fined. Cash-for-vote must be eroded from the roots. EC ought to carefully implement measures and at the same time, take bold decisions, as in Vellore and the past, to uphold its credibility and ensure the neutral ground for the mandate. Any discrepancy will severely damage the election process which, not to forget, is also an expensive affair – in terms of both time and money. The petition certainly highlighted a detrimental affair which, given Tamil Nadu’s representation in Lok Sabha with regard to seats, could have been instrumental in shifting the outcome.last_img read more
