good morning. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. well, this morning a slow moving unpredictable and deadly winter-like storm system is making its way through the southwest, with freezing rain, sleet and temperatures in some areas that are 30 degrees below normal. winter storm warnings, weather advisories posted in new mexico, texas, oklahoma and arkansas. at least eight deaths are blamed on the severe weather and the storm threatens to make a mess of thanksgiving travel. marlie hall is in new york with more. good morning, marlie. >> good morning, anne-marie. the storm began late last week in southern california. today it continues its trek south and east. airport delays are likely in atlanta, charlotte and jacksonville, but the storm isn't done with the southwest yet. snow and ice have made for a dangerous and difficult travel. >> you can't really do much of anything here.
you can't even walk. the streets are so slippery. >> reporter: in midland, texas, a thin coat of ice covers just about everything. the storm is blamed for at least eight deaths since it began in california. in amarillo, there were more than 30 weather-related traffic accidents over the weekend. near whiteout conditions near albuquerque, new mexico, and parts of oklahoma got nearly a foot of snow that snarled traffic. the snow, wind and ice caused more than 300 flights to be canceled at the dallas-ft. worth airport. the effects of the severe weather are already being felt in the northeast, with sub-zero temperatures in new york. and winds powerful enough to knock down a large sign. and the day before thanksgiving, the eastern seaboard could be in for some severe travel delays. >> wednesday, big travel day, it is right along the east coast. this is an inside track storm. the center coming very close to new york city, which means it is mainly all rain along the east coast, but interior snow, watching western new york, western p.a. in particular.
that's where we could see a heavy wet snow, perhaps as much as 6 to 12 inches. the threat there is bringing down power lines and trees and pretty nasty travel on a very busy day. >> reporter: anne-marie, the storm will cause rain, wind and snow, and it will begin to cause significant delays here in the east as early as tomorrow. just in time for the holiday thanksgiving getaway. >> that is not good. marlie hall in new york, thank you. a potentially historic deal between iran and the united states is facing criticism this morning in congress and abroad. the six-month interim agreement was signed after months of secret negotiations. the deal freezes or reverses much of iran's nuclear program, while talks continue on a permanent agreement. margaret brennan reports from london. >> reporter: applause and relief, near 4:00 a.m. in geneva. and even a hug from secretary of state john kerry. he spoke to cbs news after a
marathon 24-hour session of talks. >> we will now be able to have greater inspection, greater knowledge, greater restraint and that will expand the amount of time that it would take for them to break out and create a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: under the six-month deal, iran agrees to destroy its stockpile of weapons grade uranium, restrict its production of nuclear fuel, and give inspectors daily access to select nuclear facilities. in exchange, iran will get $7 billion in financial relief, most of that through limited oil sales. sanctions on autos, gold and chemicals will also be lifted. speaking after the deal was announced, president obama warned iran that they must comply. >> if iran does not fully meet its commitments during this six-month phase, we will turn off the relief, and ratchet up the pressure. >> reporter: skeptics including israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu slammed the deal, calling it a historic mistake
that would allow iran to get closer to making a bomb. there is also bipartisan criticism of the deal coming from capitol hill. tennessee republican bob corker spoke to fox news. >> if you see the reaction in iran now, they're spiking the football in the end zone saying that, look, we consolidate, we relieve sanctions, we'll have the right to enrich. >> reporter: secretary kerry dismissed that and said iran will have to back up its words with action. >> are you skeptical iran will actually comply with the deal they just signed? >> i think everyone has a right to be skeptical because there are indications that there are people in iran who have wanted to pursue a weapons program, that there have been secret facilities, buildings, some of those efforts towards that program, and so there is lots of reason. that's why we don't take anything at face value. >> reporter: and now the hard part begins. the u.s. and its allies come up six months to monitor iran's progress and try to hammer out a more complete deal, a sticking
point as to whether iran will actually destroy nuclear facilities or whether it will agree to cease all production of nuclear fuel. and they have incentive to comply. there is about $100 billion in iranian assets that the u.s. has frozen and the regime wants access to that. so all of this is going to be dependent on whether they follow through on the deal they just signed. >> margaret, before you go, just a couple of questions. you know, clearly some are unhappy with this deal. it seems as though sanctions were working to a certain degree. so why sign the deal now? >> reporter: well, the obama administration sees a window of opportunity here. the new president of iran is viewed as a relative moderate and came to office promising his people relief from these economic sanctions that have really brought the economy to its knees. so he can now have his negotiators go back to tehran from geneva with money in their
pocket and say, look, there is an incentive to complying with what the world is asking us to do. so the administration and the u.s. is betting that they can empower the moderates here to perhaps take on the hard-liners in iran who are trying to push to build a nuclear weapon. so they're saying, pause, give us at least six months before we add new sanctions and let's see whether we can really broker a deal. >> and what do you think a deal could mean in terms of a relationship with iran over the long term? >> reporter: well, the obama administration sees this as a first step. but keep in mind, the u.s. government still considers iran to be the number one concert of terrorism in the world and is the most sanctioned country on the planet. so there is a long way to go before relations are normalized. but the administration likes to try to broker win-win diplomacy here. so with these confidence building measures, there may be an opportunity for the u.s. to work with iran to broker solutions in places like syria, but all of that is dependent on what happens in the next six months. >> margaret brennan in london,
thank yo m later today, investigators in connecticut are expected to release their report on the newtown school shooting. 20 children and six adults were gunned down inside sandy hook elementary school last september by the gunman adam lanza, a former student. don dahler reports. >> reporter: in the 11 months since the newtown tragedy, connecticut state attorney has interviewed dozens of people and investigated everything from that day. one area of focus is police response, whether procedures were followed and if they were effective. >> 6-7 sandy hook school, caller is indicating she thinks someone is shooting in the building. >> reporter: this shows the the first 911 call came in before 9:36. the first officer arrived a minute and a half later. the tapes indicate officers were inside the school by 9:44. through interviews with officers and by examining tape recordings of the body microphones many were wearing, the report is expected to give a clear timeline of events. but not necessarily make recommendations.
connecticut senator richard blumenthal. what do you expect this report to reveal that isn't already known? >> this report will be a very factual, straightforward recitation of facts that reveal the immensity and monstrosity of this tragedy again. and i hope create some additional momentum for gun violence prevention. >> reporter: in the past year, many school districts nationwide have beefed up security. but federal efforts to establish background checks for firearm purchases that could limit access for the mentally ill have gone nowhere. >> i think that school security has to be improved. that will be a lesson of the report. and, of course, longer term mental health initiatives what could have been done to reach adam lanza before he committed this horrific act. >> reporter: dylan hockley's mother, nicole, told scott pelley one thing will never be known. >> i would love to know why. but i think that's a question
that is never going to be answered and i don't expect that to be in the police report. we'll never know what went on in that shooter's mind. >> reporter: don dahler, cbs news, stamford, connecticut. coming up on the "morning news," sacred relics, what is believed to be the remains of saint peter are displayed in public. public.

a new policy, so far she can't afford the premiums. >> they just are higher and higher when there is a pre-existing. will i have my same specialist. do i have to search for other specialists? there are so many unanswered questions. >> reporter: deborah hopes she'll eventually find a plan that fits her budget so she can still make trips to indiana to see her grandson. >> if i can't go see him, that's the worst. >> reporter: susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. for the first time, the vatican publicly unveiled bone fragments that may have belonged to saint peter. the nine fragments were displayed on sunday. they were held in a jewel box inside a bronze case. pope francis prayed over the bones at the start of the service and later clutched the box for several minutes. the bones were discovered under saint peter's basilica. some archaeologists question whether the remains do belong to the first pope. when we return, record box office, "the hunger games" sequel has a scorching opening
