A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
YANGON, Myanmar (AP) - President Barack Obama says his historic visit to Myanmar marks the next step in a new chapter between the two countries.
Speaking after a private meeting with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Obama said he's seen encouraging signs of progress in the country in the past year. Those signs, he said, include Suu Kyi's release from house arrest and her election to parliament.
Long shunned because of a repressive military rule, a transition to democracy began last year after a nominally civilian government took office and began taking steps toward democracy.
Obama says ties between the U.S. and Myanmar will grow stronger if the moves toward democracy continue.
He is the first sitting U.S. president to visit Myanmar, which also is known as Burma.
