            Good evening.  I'm Glen Rinker
            Newswatch 10.  While Miami continues
            to swelter in a record winter
            heatwave bringing temperatures to
            the mid and upper nineties, the
            Central and Rocky Mountain States
            are buried in snow.
            In Colorado ten inches of snow has
            fallen in just a few hours tonight.
            Travel in the Rockies is almost
            impossible.

            Airports are shut down stranding
            thousands of passengers.  Highways
            are blocked by snowdrifts.  Railroad
            tracks are frozen.  Officials in
            Colorado tell Newswatch at least
            three people have been killed by
            exposure to freezing winds.  The
            Governor of Colorado is expected
            tomorrow to declare a weather
            emergency.  The National Guard
            might be called out to clear
            streets and roads.  Weather
            forecasters predict more snow and
            heavy winds tonight and tomorrow,
            with temperatures dropping well
            below zero.

            Back here in South Florida, we've
            got just the opposite problem; the
            heat and humidity are supposed to
            climb.

            I'd sure appreciate it if you'd
            give them a call on your radio just
            to see if everything is okay.
