From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Tuesday:

  • The National Association of Home Builders releases its housing index for the month of February.
  • Has a blast of snow cooled down manufacturing in the Northeast? We’ll find out with the release of the Empire Manufacturing Index.
  • You think we’re having crazy weather? In 1979 snow fell in the Sahara Desert for the only time in recorded history.
