A few bands of snow showers continue to move through the area this morning, adding on to the spots of black ice we're already seeing across the area. The snow should start to wrap up by late morning, but the travel issues will continue into the afternoon hours. Keep it locked here for updates.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has approved President Barack Obama's nomination of Sen. John Kerry to be the next secretary of state.
With no opposition to the choice, the panel approved Kerry by voice vote Tuesday. The full Senate is expected to vote Tuesday afternoon.
Obama chose the five-term Massachusetts Democrat and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is stepping down after four years.
Kerry has served on the Foreign Relations panel for 28 years and led the committee for the past four.
