SAVANNAH, GA -

They're waking up to snow this morning in New York City. After spending a day touring historic sites and taking in a Broadway show in the Big Apple, the Chatham County Youth Commission will head south.  However, the weather may cause a hitch in the group's plans.

The organization is supposed to return to the Washington, DC area before venturing home, but with a forecast of three to seven inches of snow later today in our nation's capitol, that stop may be canceled.

Tuesday, Chatham County Youth Commissioners paid their respects to the men and women who died on September 11, 2001 by visiting the September 11th Memorial and under construction Freedom Tower in NYC.

Then it was sightseeing in Times Square and Manhattan. The day ended with Commissioners taking in "Spiderman" on Broadway.

The group is wrapping up its 2013 Annual Legislative Tour.  The trek took students through Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New York City in less than five days.

For the 17th year, the Youth Commission participated in the National Association of Counties' Annual Legislative Conference (NACo). They remain the only youth group in the country to attend this conference. Members also took part in a forum with County Commissioners from across the United States about youth health issues.

Join Coastal Sunrise Thursday morning for a live update.
