A popular website among right-wing conservatives is being removed from some app stores.

Google removed the app on Friday, saying the company failed to remove posts inciting violence.

Apple followed up on Saturday releasing a statement saying in part, "there is no place on our platform for threats of violence and illegal activity."

Additionally, Amazon says it is no longer hosting the website on its servers.

Parler is a social media and blogging site, and many of its users claim Facebook and Twitter unfairly censored their views.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
