2:03 am
let's show you the map and this is what happened. the storm takes a big step in the southeast off the eastern seaboard off the coast of florida and becomes a coast runner. this is tuesday into wednesday. wednesday it is definitely along the east coast but should clear by thursday. it has a snowy component, up to 18 inches of snow in northwestern pennsylvania and western new york state. most people will see four to seven-inch line in the places that get snow or ice. rain, whole different story. that's the entire east coast, every major city and every major airport will see rain out of this on the east. and in some cases that is three, four, up to five inches of rain. sam champion, abc news, new york. >> thank you, sam. here's a look at the weather for the rest of the nation. clear and dry across most of the western u.s. stagnant conditions bringing increased air pollution to washington, oregon and idaho. light freezing rain in the ohio valley and a few inches of lake effect snow could fall in michigan. >> highs will range from the 60s

2:06 am
sensitive topic in north korea. first time ever -- i've reported from there five times. always under tight supervision by a government minder. feel like i'm being guided. we were encouraged to watch films claiming north korea won the war. some accusing americans of war crimes. we know other american vets have traveled there without incident. why would merrill newman be an exception? >> that is part of the puzzle. he wasn't breaking new ground there. >> reporter: one of the family's main krnts concerns -- his heart condition. as for negotiations, the united states has no relationship with north korea. there's no ambassador, no diplomates. so we're really relying on the swedish ambassador to try to get him home by thanksgiving. bob woodruff, abc news, new york. >> let's hope so. north korea has detained six americans since 2009. two were journalists, and upon accusations in those six instances include trespassing, several
2:07 am
missionaries accused of spread ing christianity. >> the question like bob said is why merrill. why would he be the one targeted as highway was leaving the country? there might be some theories. some are speculating that newman may have been mistaken for a korean war silver star recipient. remember, he is a korean war vet but not a silver star recipient. this person is also named merrill newman. >> maybe they think he is an exceptional american hero. i think that trying to figure out a reason when you talk about north korea is almost -- almost a waste of time. i don't think they need a reason. just the kind of stuff they do. republican party leaders say a cocaine-using congressman should resign. trey radel plead guilty to cocaine possession and checked in to rehab last week. top florida republicans say he violated the trust of his constituents and should focus now on getting well. they question whether he can be effective when he returns to washington. president obama wrapping up a west coast fund-raising trip in los angeles this afternoon. a day after heckled in san francisco.

3:33 am
let's show you the map and this is what happened. the storm takes a big step in the southeast off the eastern seaboard off the coast of florida and becomes a coast runner. this is tuesday into wednesday. wednesday it is definitely along the east coast but should clear by thursday. it has a snowy component, up to 18 inches of snow in northwestern pennsylvania and western new york state. most people will see four to seven-inch line in the places that get snow or ice. rain, whole different story. that's the entire east coast, every major city and every major airport will see rain out of this on the east. and in some cases that is three, four, up to five inches of rain. sam champion, abc news, new york. >> thank you, sam. here's a look at the weather for the rest of the nation. clear and dry across most of the western u.s. stagnant conditions bringing increased air pollution to washington, oregon and idaho. light freezing rain in the ohio valley and a few inches of lake effect snow could fall in michigan. >> highs will range from the 60s
3:34 am
to 70s in california in the desert southwest to 50s in the northwest and 30s across the midwest in to the northeast. now to our other major story. we are learning more about the background of sandy hook shooter adam lanza. a new report from the prosecutor said lanza had a fascination with violence. and in the fifth grade wrote a book that included tales of children being slaughtered and a son shooting his mother in the head. photos from his bedroom were released. you can see the black garbage bag over his windows. his former scout master believes he was bullied and may have killed out of revenge. >> what adam was trying to do was come up with an act of revenge that was so awful that he would stab every american in the heart. >> other information discovered by investigators is kept secret out of consideration for the victims' families. a northern california family is hoping there won't be an empty place at the thanksgiving table. korean war vet merrill newman was taken in to custody by the north koreans as he prepared to leave that country last month.
3:35 am
family members are talking for the very first time saying that they're worried about his health and his safety. here's abc's bob woodruff. >> reporter: it's been 30 days since lee newman last heard from merrill newman. her husband of 56 years. now she's breaking her silence. >> we hope whatever the misunderstanding is will be resolved quickly and he can return and be at our table for the holidays. >> reporter: the newman family's big question, why was merrill arrested while the other tourists with him were allowed to fly home? >> they checked out of the hotel. gone it the airport, boarded the plane. and we understand were five minutes from taking off when a korean official came on board and asked to see his passport and he's been there ever since. >> merrill newman served in the korean war which remains a sensitive topic in north korea. first time ever -- i've reported from there five
3:36 am
times. always under tight supervision by a government minder. feel like i'm being guided. we were encouraged to watch films claiming north korea won the war. some accusing americans of war crimes. we know other american vets have traveled there without incident. why would merrill newman be an exception? >> that is part of the puzzle. he wasn't breaking new ground there. >> reporter: one of the family's main concerns -- his heart condition. as for negotiations, the united states has no relationship with north korea. there's no ambassador, no diplomates. so we're really relying on the swedish ambassador to try to get him home by thanksgiving. bob woodruff, abc news, new york. >> let's hope so. north korea has detained six americans since 2009. two were journalists, and accusations in those six instances include trespassing, several missionaries accused of spread ing christianity. >> the question like bob said is why merrill.
3:37 am
why would he be the one targeted as he was leaving the country? there might be some theories. some are speculating that newman may have been mistaken for a korean war silver star recipient. remember, he is a korean war vet but not a silver star recipient. this person is also named merrill newman. >> maybe they think he is an exceptional american hero. i think that trying to figure out a reason when you talk about north korea is almost -- almost a waste of time. i don't think they need a reason. just the kind of stuff they do. republican party leaders say a cocaine-using congressman should resign. trey radel plead guilty to cocaine possession and checked in to rehab last week. top florida republicans say he violated the trust of his constituents and should focus now on getting well. they question whether he can be effective when he returns to washington. president obama wrapping up a west coast fund-raising trip in los angeles this afternoon. a day after heckled in san francisco.
