The 'winter storm' only lasted a few minutes for most areas, but it was still enough to coat the palms in white.

The forecast looks sounds good on paper, but seemingly quiet moments on the sun can still produce crippling geomagnetic storms.

Severe storms could hit the South Saturday, before the storm batters the East Coast with heavy rain, strong winds and high seas.

Heavy rain is not likely -- it's just going to be a cool, damp day with showers on and off.

Sadly for the pomp and parade Friday it will be rainy, I swear!
