Getting to 30 Rock tonight was an adventure, and it wasn't because of the traffic. Those of us in the Northeast are finally getting a first-hand look at the storm system that has already wreaked havoc in the Southern Plains. The so-called "nor'easter" is bringing coastal flooding, storm surges and wild winds. It's predicted to be the region's worst storm in 15 years, and its surprisingly slow track means it could be causing trouble for the next 48 hours. We'll wrap up the developments tonight and get an outlook on how air travel could be affected. We'll also get a forecast from NBC Weather Plus's Bill Karins.
We have two reports from the front lines tonight. Richard Engel tells us how some Iraqis are coping after a weekend of deadly bombings. Also, Jim Maceda has made his way to Afghanistan to report on the new "spring offensive." Tonight, he'll bring us the first of several reports he plans to deliver over the next month.
Finally, chances are you've spent at least part of the past week thinking about race -- and the way it shapes the debate in America. Tonight, Peter Alexander will help us remember Jackie Robinson's first appearance with what was then the Brooklyn Dodgers. It was 60 years ago today. As you may know, Robinson changed the face of sports and opened the door for generations of athletes. We'll look at how Major League Baseball today remembered "number 42."
We hope you'll join us tonight.
