As the winter's first massive storm moves east, the effects left behind are being felt all across the country. The deadly storm was expected to dump snow and up to a quarter-inch of ice along a line from Virginia to New York. UPI reports the system, blamed for multiple deaths as it marched through the Midwest and Plains states late last week, also was responsible for at least three deaths Sunday in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, officials said.

In New Jersey, at least two people were killed in when their car skidded into a tree Sunday, Newark's Star-Ledger reported. Pennsylvania police said a 50-car pile-up on the state turnpike Sunday left one driver dead and dozens of motorists stranded in the middle of a major snowstorm.

This is the same storm that brought the cooler temperatures and rain showers late last week across southern Arizona. Hundreds of drivers in the midwest, from Arkansas to Texas, found themselves in accidents on icy roads.

In Oklahoma, our sister station, KOTV, has dashcam video proves an Arkansas truck driver deserves a lot of credit for preventing a wreck on I-40 during last week's snow storm. Michael Johnson -- a driver from Little Rock, Arkansas -- was eastbound on I-40 west of Henryetta Friday when a FedEx truck ahead of him went out of control.

Another cold front is moving into southern Arizona tonight, bringing below freezing temperatures. Be sure to stay with Tucson News Now for updated weather conditions.
