Coming up Sunday, February 16 on "Face the Nation"

(CBS News) -- As the east coast grapples with the aftermath of a heavy winter storm, we’ll have an update this Sunday on the fallout from the inclement weather. We'll talk to Gov. Pat McCrory, R-N.C., about how the storm is affecting his state. Marshall Shepherd, the former president of the American Meteorological Society, will also provide his take on the storm that brought many cities to a standstill. We’ll ask him about this year’s volatile winter conditions. Should we expect similar low temperatures and heavy snowfall in years to come, and how are weather patterns changing? We’ll explore all that, and more. 

Plus, Michael Sam, a University of Missouri defensive end, announced this week that he is gay, setting a landmark for American sports. Sam completed his college career this year and is poised to head to the NFL. Joining us to discuss the implications of this news are Sam’s spokesman Howard Bragman, Cyd Zeigler of OutSports.com, Jarrett Bell, NFL Columnist for USA Today Sports, and Donté Stallworth, an NFL wide receiver and current free agent.

We’ll also hear from Jim DeMint, president of the Heritage Foundation, and ask him about the latest news from Washington. What does this week’s passage of a clean debt-ceiling bill mean for John Boehner and for Congress? Can we expect more standstills on issues like immigration, or are there signs of hope for bipartisan compromise?

Plus, we’ll gather an all-star panel to discuss the events of the week. Joining us are Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress, Bob Woodward and Jennifer Rubin of The Washington Post, David Sanger of The New York Times, and John Harris of Politico.
