    East vs West Weather Report War


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Professional actress Nyle Lynn braved the 16-degree weather in New York this week to give a special message to the West Coast. “L.A., this is winter! OK?” she said in an angry tone. “I have no real hate for L.A. I just think it's ridiculous that anyone there could complain about the weather when it's sunny all the time,” she said. “It's a fun little rivalry between me and my friends that are West Coasters.” There was almost a foot of snow and there were gusts of wind up to 35 mph as she shot this on Manhattan’s Upper West Side on Jan. 21.

    After seeing West Coast reporters make a breezy day sound like a tornado professional actress & CNN iReporter, Nyle Lynn, headed out in the 16 degree weather in the evening on Jan 21st, 2014 in Manhattan New York to show LA what a real winter snow storm and a face without botox looks like on the East Coast in NYC, lol. But serious folks it's cold out there! You know I still love you LA peps, buuuurrrrr!


    On Jan 21, 2014 The winter snow storm is hitting New York City hard.  Accumulation in Manhattan is about 8-12 inches with North winds between 15-20mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Things are getting cold with wind chills, as low as 10 below zero late tonight. The snow fall snowfall will continue through tonight, tapering off early Wednesday morning.


    At the time of this report it's cold, windy, snowy 16 degree and dropping here in Manhattan. The snow continues to fall as shop owners constantly shoveling the sideways outside their doorways. Shivering city slickers bundled up and try to handle it the best they can by getting extra groceries and staying inside. Most New Yorkers still had to go into work today so they trekked through the cold in the snow with heavy coats and boots on. The MTA busses and trains are working but the buses are moving slowly and some say 'out of service' as they pass by frozen commuters huddling on the sidewalks. The snow plows are out in full force with the chains strapped to their tires. And a broken down school bus was towed away in the early evening.  There is still lots of hustle and bustle as the police and firemen rush about dealing with the usually chaos of NYC a midst this harsh winter snow storm.
