Major storm moves offshore as cold air follows, new Western storm brews in Pacific

ABC News(NEW YORK) --   Alerts remain in place this morning across several states from Wisconsin to Maine.

While some of these alerts will expire early this morning, many will remain in place throughout the day due to high winds driving lake effect snow in the typical lake effect regions through Sunday evening.

 The Sunday morning radar as of 3 a.m. shows snow still falling along many U.S. interstates including the northern corridor of I-95 and I-91.

This morning, lake effect snow is blowing off the Great Lakes and impacting parts of I-80 and I-90 in western Pennsylvania and New York State.

This weekend’s storm brought some much needed snow pack to the northeast after what has been a very warm and dry season for snow.

Most areas from central Pennsylvania north through New England now have at least six inches or more of snow cover.

As the storm system continues to push offshore through Sunday, gusty winds will bring in cold air down from the Arctic region.

As this air moves across the Great Lakes, typical lake effect snow bands will remain in place through Sunday.

Winds this morning are gusting above 25 mph from the Northern Plains down through the Tennessee River Valley and all the way north to New England where some wind gusts make reach 40 mph.

This wind will begin to calm down later on Sunday for most of this area, but breezy conditions can be expected from the mid-Atlantic coastline north through New England on Monday morning.

 The gusty winds are part of a reinforcing Arctic air mass that is sliding southeast into the U.S.

Wind chill values this morning across the northern Plains are as low as 31 degrees below zero.

That cold air makes its way to the Northeast by Monday morning and remains in place through midweek with daily minimum temperatures in the single digits and teens.

A new storm system is brewing in the northern Pacific and is moving east toward the Pacific Northwest.

This storm system moves onshore late Monday into early Tuesday morning bringing another round of coastal rain and wintry precipitation to the higher elevations.

However, this storm is not expected to be as bad as this past week’s dangerous storms, and is only expected to bring typical seasonal storm conditions to the region through midweek.

Man dies after being zipped into suitcase, girlfriend arrested

Man dies after being zipped into suitcase, girlfriend arrestedOrange County Sheriff's Office(WINTER PARK, Fla.) -- A woman in Florida has been arrested in the death of her boyfriend after she allegedly zipped him into a suitcase and left him there for hours, authorities said.

Sarah Boone, 42, called authorities Monday afternoon to report that her boyfriend, 42-year-old Jorge Torres Jr., was dead at her Winter Park home, according to the arrest affidavit. Boone said they were playing hide-and-seek when the couple "jokingly thought it would be funny if Jorge got in the suitcase," and Boone zipped him inside.

Boone said they had been drinking alcohol that night, the affidavit said. She said she then "went upstairs and passed out in her bed."

Boone said she woke up around 11 a.m. when her phone rang multiple times, the affidavit said.

When Boone went downstairs and didn't see her boyfriend anywhere, she "realized that he was possibly still inside the suitcase," the affidavit said. Boone unzipped the suitcase and found Torres unresponsive and not breathing.

When deputies responded to her 911 call, Torres was found lying by the front door near a blue suitcase, the affidavit said. He had a small laceration on his lip and apparent bruising around his eye. Torres was declared dead around 1 p.m.

As authorities investigated, they recovered video from Boone's phone in which Torres was repeatedly yelling out Boone's name, the affidavit said.

Torres was seen on the video pushing on the suitcase, trying to escape, according to the affidavit.

In the video, according to the affidavit, Boone said to Torres, "For everything you've done to me," then laughed and said, "F--- you. Stupid."

Torres repeatedly called out his girlfriend's name, and told her, 'I can't f------ breathe, seriously," the video showed, according to the affidavit. When Torres repeatedly told Boone he couldn't breathe, Boone replied, "That's what I feel like when you cheat on me ... You should probably shut the f--- up."

Arrested: Sarah Boone, 42, for Second Degree Murder in the death of 42-year-old Jorge Torres Jr., who died after Boone zipped him into a suitcase, and didn’t return for hours.
