    CHICAGO (CBS)– The first winter storm of 2021 is approaching. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for all counties, except Lake (IL) and McHenry counties. In the morning closer to 9 a.m., snow begins to creep in from south and changes to sleet or freezing rain south of the city, but may remain snow northwest of city. Conditions will change throughout the day. Snow will start the storm, but the main window for freezing rain is late morning into the mid-afternoon. Snow will accumulate Friday evening. Friday will be a dangerous day to travel as road conditions will be slick.  Ice accumulation could impact power lines as well. Saturday brings more snow chances in the evening and overnight with some light accumulations possible.
    After a cold overnight served as a reprieve from New Year’s Eve rain, the D.C. area is kicking off the new year with another round of storms. Rain is moving back in Friday morning and some of the more northwestern parts of the region — namely Frederick County in Maryland and the northern parts of Fauquier and western Loudoun Counties in Virginia — will be in for some freezing rain. A winter weather advisory will be in effect from 10 a.m. Friday to 1 a.m. Saturday for the areas affected by freezing rain. Listen to WTOP online and on the radio at 103.5 FM or 107.7 FM.

    By Giorgio Panetta, CBS2 Chief Meteorologist/Weather Producer Hey there! Umbrellas are a good idea as you head out today. A weak, but slow-moving cold front will bring showers and some icy conditions to the area through mid-morning before dissipating. Temps will start off well above average but then drop into the 30s by midnight. A biting wind will make it feel like the 20s, so bundle up! New Year’s will be mostly clear, and that trend will continue into Friday AM, but come Friday afternoon, another system heads east and bring yet another risk for rain and snow falling to the interior mountains. The unsettled trend continues into the weekend, but temps will be spiking and dropping Saturday into Sunday. Have a happy New Year! MORE FROM CBS NEW YORK Squirrel-Mania!

    The FBI is probing whether Nashville's Christmas Day bombing was deliberately designed to target police officers, after they were lured into the area prior to the massive explosion.  The blast - which injured three people and caused massive damage to the city's downtown area - emanated from a white RV parked on Second Avenue at 6.40 am Friday.  Officers had been called to the scene shortly before the explosion amid reports of a shooting. However, they arrived to find the vehicle playing an announcement saying that the RV would explode in 15 minutes. One expert is now theorizing that the spooky recording was designed to bring as many cops and first responders as possible into the area with the intention of killing or maiming them.   'I kind of think it was probably an idea to get first responders to come in,' ex-NYPD Detective Bill Ryan told Fox News on Saturday. ...

In Europe, expectations for a post-Brexit trade deal finally being struck have also propped up markets to a large extent.

    Retailers advertising big Black Friday sales do not appear to be drawing quite the same crowds traditionally seen in past years as the coronavirus continues to affect the holiday season, including the busiest shopping day of the year. While the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has not completely disappeared, it is demonstratively lower this year due to fears, protocols, and limitations caused by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Several photos and videos on social media show relatively mild crowds compared to recent years, as many retailers moved to offer their deals online. “An entirely different look to Black Friday in the age of COVID-19,” KTAR Phoenix reporter Jim Cross said early Friday morning alongside a photo of an empty parking lot. “Several places I checked out that usually have big crowds with long lines are quiet this morning,” he added: An entirely different look to Black Friday in the...
    FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — Black Friday looks very different in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. At Best Buy in Framingham, the only visible line was first thing in the morning. For many early-bird shoppers, getting out there was about keeping a tradition alive. “I still came out just trying to get that aura back,” one shopper said. “This year has been very, very depressing and it’s like a bad dream.” Simply waiting in line was giving some a reason to smile. “It’s fun, the energy. All my guys with me so you know I’m feeling it,” said Shawn Ashe of Framingham. Retail Expert Says Black Friday Will Be Drastically Different: ‘Customers Don’t Want To Touch Things’ But customers haven’t forgotten about the pandemic. “I’m double-masked up.

    Black Friday was a real bust across the five boroughs — with COVID-19 appearing to ward off the usual crowd of customers from brick-and-mortar shops on what’s traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year. Social distancing was no problem at Queens Center, the borough’s largest mall in Elmhurst, which was dead early Friday morning compared to the storm of shoppers last year pre-coronavirus. About 30 shoppers queued up outside Macy’s before it opened at 6 a.m. but the crowd had dissipated just a couple of hours later. The big-box retailer was peddling doorbusters like $19.99 watches and 40 percent off all boots and shoes. “I got here at 7 (a.m.) but there was no line,” said Akhter Begum, 23, who opted for in-person retail therapy for good reason. “Sometimes online doesn’t show everything. Sometimes the size doesn’t work. Sometimes (items) look different from the pictures.” One employee suggested the...

    For years, Black Friday in-store sales have crept earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving Day itself, to the consternation of those who cherish the holiday as a day of rest, and the delight of holiday deal-seekers. Not so this year, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Major retailers including Walmart, Target and Best Buy will remain closed on Thanksgiving, joining with chains like Home Depot that have held fast to a tradition of shutting down for the holiday. When the store doors do fling open on Friday morning, retailers are taking extra precautions to prevent a huge crush of crowds that could speed the spread of the virus. Most retailers have offered rolling deals, both in-store and online, throughout November and beyond, in a bid to spread out the opportunities for deal seeking.  Stores are also offering curb-side pickup and speedy delivery. For those who still want to shop in-store, retailers will...

It is un-American.” Hostin added: “For the past four years, this president has shown us that he is a misogynist, that he is homophobic, that he is racist, and that he mismanaged a coronavirus pandemic to the tune of 250,000 American deaths....

    Vote counting continued Friday morning in Pennsylvania, where Joe Biden has been inching ahead of Donald Trump largely in part due to mail-in ballots. Workers at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia had approximately 50,000 mail-in votes remaining as of Friday morning -- four days after polls closed, CBS reports. Counting was expected to end Friday afternoon, with workers processing approximately 10,000 ballots an hour. Pennsylvania was among several key states the results hinge on, including Georgia (where Biden beat Trump with just over 900 votes Friday), Arizona, Nevada. Biden was declared winner in Arizona by the Associated Press Thursday, although Trump's campaign remained confident he would still win the state, as votes were still being counted in Maricopa County.
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden steadily gained ground on President Trump in both Pennsylvania and Georgia as more mail votes were counted Thursday and overnight into Friday, inching the former vice president closer to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.  In Georgia specifically, Biden now leads.  Biden sits at 264 electoral votes in states where races have been called while Trump has 214 in called races. Biden needs just one win in any of the swing states with races that have not yet been called by the Fox News Decision Desk -- Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia -- while Trump would need to win all four of those states plus Alaska, which he is expected win but is too early to call because of a lack of votes reported.  "We continue to feel very good about where things stand. We have no doubt that when the count is...
