Significant Winter Storm Possible From Monday Night Through Tuesday

An area of low pressure will track to our south through Monday.  Some light snow should develop through Monday afternoon and evening as a result.  The low pressure will then rapidly intensify off of the Northeast coast Monday night and Tuesday.  Uncertainty remains as to the exact track of this low pressure, but if it tracks close enough to the coast, portions of the area could see a significant snowfall.

Gillibrand targets military law over sexual assault

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand helped forced the military to allow gays in its ranks. Now she's working to upend the way the armed services handle an epidemic of sexual assaults.
The tenacious New York Democrat just may prevail.
Gillibrand is challenging the Pentagon's top brass -- and some of the Senate's more authoritative voices.

Gillibrand wants to strip commanders of authority to decide whether to prosecute sexual assault cases and give the authority to seasoned military lawyers.
But the military says commanders should maintain their right to ensure good order.
Gillibrand's effort has deeply divided the Senate and will come to a showdown later this summer when lawmakers consider a defense policy bill.
