breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com. meteorologist, karen rogers in for david today. we are in the deep freeze now. >> it's cold and light snow showers in spots. isn't that great? looking at stormtracker 6 live double scan this is the wider view of it. i want to show you a bit closer. in some areas, it's coming down as light flurries and some brighter areas of light you see a snow shower. not all of this is reaching ground but snow showers are
