mesmerized by one michelle obama, and find out what she said. "early today" starts right now. >> good to be with you on a tuesday morning. i'm frances rivera. >> and i'm phillip mena. a major winter storm is sweeping across the nation, packing a punch with heavy snow and ferocious winds. travel advisories have been posted in a large swath of the midwest, including minnesota, where whiteout conditions are making travel nearly impossible, leading to dozens of crashes and road closures. now that system is making its way to the east coast, a region far from ready to suffer another blow where residents are still cleaning up after friday's devastating nor'easter that killed at least nine people. the second wintry blast comes as utility crews are racing to restore power for hundreds of thousands still in the dark. >> here is nbc's dan scheinman. >> reporter: mother nature has shown the east coast little merciry. in massachusetts a seawall protecting the town of duxbury was breached. crews are hustling to protect

3:33 am
this northeaster is different. it's not going have the extreme tides, coastal problems with the flooding, and it's not going to have the extreme winds. this is a huge snow event. probably one of the bigger snowstorms we've seen this winter in the northeast. from just north of baltimore, all the way through maine, winter storm watches. and now starting to convert over to winter storm warnings in vermont. that will happen everywhere during the day today. this is 5:00 p.m. today. we're are watching a little bit of snow starting to break out of central pennsylvania. as we go through the night we do get a little bit of snow. there could be a coating on the ground at a.m. wednesday. then the storm becomes the nor'easter. it develops. it gets stronger. the colder air gets dragged in on the back side. the snow intensifies. wednesday near whiteout conditions from new york city, northern jersey through the hudson valley. the evening commute is going to be horrendous north of i-95 on 84, across the mass pike and back up into southern new hampshire. by the time we get to thursday morning, it's all the way up in maine. hopefully the thursday morning commute will be a little bit better and the road crews can clean it up. it is going to be a mess. it is a quick hitter.
3:34 am
it will be high intensity. >> bill, thank you. after hours of emotional debate, florida lawmakers narrowly approve a school safety plan that would allow some teachers to carry guns in schools, as well as create new restrictions on rifle sales. few, if any senators walked away completely happy with the vote. democrats opposing a first of its kind voluntary school marshall program that would deputy advertise school personnel. and republicans unhappy with the raising of the minimum wage to buy rifles from 18 to 21. and also opposing the new three-day waiting period on the sale of weapons. the bill now moves to the state's republican-controlled house weeks before the march for our lives rally is scheduled for march 24th. will he or won't he cooperate? that's the question around former trump campaign aide sam nunberg after sending mixed messages about whether he'll comply with a subpoena from special counsel robert mueller. late last night, nunberg told nbc news he will likely cooperate after all, but said, quote, i just don't want the make it easy. that was a different tune from earlier in the day with nunberg
3:35 am
belligerently defying mueller, telling the media he won't comply. here is what he told msnbc's ari melber. >> this is so ridiculous. i'm not going to give them every e-mail i had with steve bannon and roger stone. i communicate with them every day. i'm not going to testify against roger. roger did not do anything. roger was treated terribly by donald trump. >> and he is one of donald trump's oldest advisers. >> yeah, but trump is the most disloyal person you're ever going to meet. >> nunberg also dismissed the idea of being arrested for not cooperating. and even suggested possible wrongdoing in the election by the president himself. nbc's kristen welker has more. >> reporter: defiant and digging in, sam nunberg, a former trump campaign aide turned trump antagonist dropping this bombshell, becoming the first former adviser to publicly suggest candidate trump may have done something wrong. nunberg spoke with katy tur live on msnbc. >> do you think that they have something on the president? >> i think they may.
3:36 am
>> what? >> i think that he may have done something during the election. but i don't know that for sure. >> why do you think that? >> i can't explain it unless you were in there. >> reporter: but this the same interview, at times siding with the president. >> i mean, mr. trump's right. the president's right. it's a witch-hunt. and i'm not going to cooperate. >> reporter: the white house firing back, noting nunberg only served on the campaign in the early days. >> your reaction? >> i definitely think he doesn't know that for sure because he is incorrect. as we've said many times before, there was no collusion with the trump campaign. >> reporter: nunberg was fired from the campaign in 2015 after racist social media posts. the president later sued nunberg for violating a confidentiality agreement, despite that, he says he won't comply with a subpoena by special counsel robert mueller to appear before a grand jury. >> it was ridiculous to me. the subpoena is absolutely ridiculous. >> reporter: so is nunberg prepared to go to jail over the issue? >> you should have higher legal bills?
3:37 am
>> i think it would be really, really funny if they wanted to arrest me because i don't want to spend 80 hours going over e-mails. >> it's the latest development in the intensifying russia probe. nunberg is among those subpoenaed for e-mails, texts and other documents related to the campaign. intercontinental this is a little bit of bravado. it's a little bit of drama. but in the end, the grand jury is entitled to every person's evidence, and i'm quite certain they will get it. >> reporter: witnesses can refuse to answer questions by pleading the fifth amendment. but if for some other reason they simply refuse to answer questions, they can be thrown in jail until they cooperate or until the grand jury expires. frances? >> kristen welker, thanks. republican lawmakers are pushing back against president trump's proposed steel tariffs. a spokesperson for house speaker paul ryan saying the gop leader is extremely worried about the consequence of a trade war, and is urging the white house not to continue with the plan. but president trump is refusing to back down, denying the tariffs will lead to any kind of trade war.
