Major cities on the U.S. East Coast have broken a snow drought of sorts. Meanwhile, other parts of the country were struggling Tuesday with perilously low temperatures that closed schools, cut power and likely contributed to cold exposure deaths. New York City’s Central Park has recorded more than an inch of snow in a single day for the first time since 2022. The National Weather Service says Philadelphia’s 715-day streak without a similar amount has ended, too. More than 100,000 U.S. homes and businesses are without power, most of them in Oregon, Texas and Louisiana, after widespread outages that started over the weekend.

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has told teammates he intends to retire after 13 NFL seasons, according to three people informed of the decision. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday out of respect for Kelce’s decision, which he has not yet made public. Kelce was in tears throughout the end of Philadelphia’s 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC wild-card game on Monday night. The respected team leader declined to talk to the media about his plans after the game.
