7:03 am

0. well, good morning, carolina in the country. streak. marcus page was on, getting four first half threes against notre dame and carolina led by as many. but things unrav he willed after the break. coal son two of his 19 points and those put the irish ahead to stay. they stormed the court in south bend after notre dame upsets 82-76. back-to-back losses for the number two tar heels. in durham, duke gets coach k state. another huge game for the pack's cat barber, 26 points for cat and six assists.

7:41 am
have a great sunday. and the queen city, let's get to that story we were talking about. it is buzzing, of course, with the excitement ahead of tonight's super bowl with the perfusion of panthers around. what's it like bucking the trend and being a bronco in charlotte? well we dropped by the charlotte bar known as the bronco's fan hangout. the owner of dd peckers is actually a panthers fan but welcomes all fans, including the broncos faithful. some of the denver fans say it's tough to pull for their team here and you can imagine, that's because it's hard to find broncos gear with almost everything being sold in the area is for the panthers. >> yeah,nd they're certainly having nicer weather over there. >> exactly. looking for a lot of sun. probably temperatures in the 70 to kick off the game. and falling ten degrees. around here it's a good bit cooler. we're not below freezing. we do have some precipitation going on out there. we were talking about possibly going into the region yesterday.
7:42 am
on over the last hour on radar, you can see it's color coded to indicate in blues the areas where there may be some snow reaching the ground. the greens indicating where it's rain. there's a little purple colors there that indicate a mix. and sometimes, depending on how the information is coming in and what the temperature structure of the lower atmosphere happens to be you can have some areas that look pretty blue and, in fact, a lot of that is rain with a little snow mixed in. we take you in a little bit to the northern part of this area of precipitation. you can see how it's kind of covering the eastern section of nash county and edgecombe county around rocky mount, very lightly up around infield, town toward wilson, along the i-95 corridor, generally as we move toward the south, there's kind of mix between areas that may be bouncing between rain and some rain mixed with snow and on down toward fayetteville. we've got some precipitation going on for smithfield. fayetteville and areas south and east of fayetteville toward elizabeth town, clinton some of
7:43 am
of heavier echo showing up and that has reflected itself in the precipitation totals. i'll show you that in just a second. right now a look at some town by temperatures. 37 in durham and wake forest. same thing at the station in raleigh. 39 in holly springs. for the most part in wake county, we've got little or no precipitation going on right now. and some question marks about whether any ever manages to kind of bulge its way up into our part of the viewing area. so we look down toward the south, 37 for fayetteville. 36 in goldsboro. probably a little bit cooler up toward the virginia line with low and mid-30s there. now, we take a look at rainfall and of course from the triangle area and northward and off to the west, we haven't had any at this point out of this system. erwin has about 100th of an inch. goldsboro 410ths offen inch. so the rainfall is building up there pretty quickly. only 900ths of an inch in fayetteville so far. of course it's a delicate balance today in between where we may have some changeover to
7:44 am
perhaps accumulate in 1 or 2 spots. and places where the precipitation is light enough or the temperatures remain just barrel warm enough that it mainly falls as rain and there is no accumulation. it's a good chance a lot of us end up that way. you can see on satellite and radar, the general organization of the system here. a little bit of a counterclockwise swirl. that's all associated with the surface low pressure area that has formed off the coast. we've been watching the last day or two this upper trough coming from the southwest and swinging across the southeast. right now it's moving into georgia and just out ahead of that we've got the surface low pressure area formed off of eastern florida yesterday. it's been moving toward the north, northeast. it looks like it will move kind of slowly today as this upper trough intersects with it a little bit and then after that, the low will pull off to the east. taking this band of precipitation away. the question becomes as they interact a little bit, does this precipitation band get drawn a little bit father west for a while today into some of the slightly colder air.
7:45 am
upper level trough a little bit later on today. fairly far to the south as we go through tonight and tomorrow, that lifts away pretty quickly. so we think most of the precipitation will be out of here later this afternoon and evening. we'll see a clearing trend tonight. there's another trough behind that, though, that comes along late today and tomorrow morning that could kick off some shower activity. after that we're mostly dry as we go through tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. but there's a lot of cold air pouring into the eastern united states and so our temperatures are going to run below normal, it looks like, for most of the week ahead. so it looks like over a good part of our viewing area, we've got this purple i'm showing on this map indicating we could be rain or snow or bounce back and forth. and inside the pink area is where we have the best chance of maybe a little bit of accumulation, a trace to perhaps, less than an inch. about 39 at lunchtime. 44 by 4:00 this afternoon. and then falling back to about 40 by 8:00 p.m. we may see a couple of breaks of sun as we get into the later afternoon in the triangle westward.
7:46 am
53 degrees. so that's going to be warm -- enough not to worry about snow. those may mix with a little snow tomorrow night. on tuesday 49 with a mix of sun and clouds. weapon, thursday, friday look mostly sunny but our temperatures really trend down. highs that day in spite of the sun only get into about 36 degrees. now, brian is here to catch us up on the roads. >> still watching this road weather index. we did get a report from twitter from one of our viewers in johnston county. i show you what he said. they are reporting a little bit of sleet falling right now. so as mike is saying, we could see this wintry mix in areas south and east of the triangle this morning at this point we're not anticipating any big problems on the roads. i do want to let you know about something that will affect your morning commute in morrisville it's going to be a big problem for a long time for the next six months, morrisville park way is going to be closed between bristol creek drive and crabtree crossing parkway. this is out toward park west
7:47 am
right there is a railroad crossing and the dot is separating that crossing. it's going to be closed for the next six months there are going to be posted detours. expect unusually heavy traffic tomorrow. back to you. >> brian, shrader my traffic mentor, thank you much. we have already been through one bout of ice this winter. remember a couple weeks ago? plenty of people slipped and fell.

acbein a ant wa e wou h 0. right now on wral news, new overnight a 17-year-old has died after he was hit while walking in lumberton. troopers released details on the vehicle that left the scene. >> plus meteorologist mike moss is in, telling us who could see snowflakes. you're taking a live look at those road conditions, we'll certainly have live drive five out as well keeping an eye around town. >> and we're live in the bay area, california, we'll have a live report from levi stadium where the panthers meet the broncos. katherine tells us how charities are benefitting from the big game. >> sunday is the day we've been waiting for. i am layla santiago and we have a lot going on. we're certainly keep pounding is a motto of the day. but we're also keeping an eye out and about. we have julia sims in drive five. mike moss. >> we have the whole gang. >> because we're keeping an eye
7:51 am
>> exactly it's one of those dicey close-call days out there where we have a sharp western edge of the precipitation it's a little uncertain about how far west it goes. we also have borderline temperatures that can tilt one way and give us ju rain or the other and give us snow and sleet. you can see how it's generally more or less along the i-95 corridor and points east ward and we've had some fairly substantial precipitation especially toward the southern costal plain. you can see we've got the color coding indicating that parts of this may be pockets of wet snow trying to get to the ground. even in those areas there may be places melting before it reaches the surface in this mainly rain. so we'll be watching this closely over the next under the influence hours it could kind of end up pulling away slowly or it may bulge back a little father north and west. here's a look at our current temperatures. 34 in henderson and louisburg, 38 in chapel hill. about 37 here at the station.
7:52 am
toward the south, 39 in erwin. 36 for clinton and about 36 for fayetteville. there's a look at the broader area of satellite and radar. you can see this whole system developing as we went through the night time hours. 39 at lunchtime. wintry mix at that time from the triangle area south and east about 44 later this afternoon with some strong wind gusts from the north and east. and maybe by that time we'll start to get some breaks in the clouds. the precipitation probably tapering off over the costal plain by then. i'll move along to brian and let him update here. >> just reiterating what you're saying this morning, mike, no problems in the triangle right now. it's dry. but south and east of the triangle we see a little bit of a wintry mix although i don't think it's going to cause a lot of problems on the roads. along the i-95 corridor and just to the south, that's the area we're most concerned about this morning. did have a all right from one of our viewers in johnston county in the -- i guess that would be the western side of johnston
7:53 am
roads with a little bit of sleet falling. and julia sims has been out all morning in life drive five mostly in cumberland county. and julia where are you right now? >> reporter: we are on 95 northbound in johnston county. right around four oaks, smithfield area. and we have just started feeling or hearing, rather, a little sleet. weep show you what it looks like on i-95. it's been mostly raining all morning long. but every now and then you'll hear the sleet pelt that windshield. so, you know, if you're going to get out, it's wet, it's cold. it's messy. but that's about as bad as it gets. at least as bad as we've seen so far this morning. so so far so good, brian. >> very good, news. julia sims in life drive five this morning. we'll get another update from julia coming up in just a little while. again, in the triangle not seeing any big problems at this point. and any chance at the moment at least of seeing wintry precipitation will be along the i-95 corridor and just to the

8:12 am
0. and welcome back, i'm layla. >> and i'm brims on this super bowl sunday. we have some weather that we're monitoring this morning. let's go to mike moss who has been monitoring conditions. we see this stuff leave any time soon. >> it looks like it's not going to be really soon. it may be pulling out gradually as we go through the course of the day. and in the triangle we haven't had anything falling. the question is will it kind of bulge back to the west and northwest and give us a period of precipitation early morning
8:13 am
we'll talk about that more in just a little bit. first we'll look at our fayetteville sky cam this morning, where we have had some precipitation through the morning hours. it's a little heavier down towards southeastern areas of cumberland county, southeast of fayetteville at the airport there. there's been about ail little. it looks gray a little bit wet there. live sweep of dual doppler 5,000 shows most of the precipitation so far has been -- and along the i-95 corridor with a sharp droppoff from to the west from there. and again, the question gets to be does it stay where it is and then move away to the east. it doesn't bulge back to the west a little bit more before it all ends. we've got temperatures that are generally above freezing. 38 in chapel hill. 37 for sanford and cary. about the same in clayton. 36 degrees around roanoke rapids. as we head through the day, our temperatures probably staying in the 30s in light of the places where it's precipitating out in the early afternoon and generally later in the day, when the precipitation starts to move
8:14 am
into the low to mid-40s there. it may be up close to 50 degrees around roxboro and maybe upper 40s toward southern pines. and might see a couple of breaks in the clouds. brian is here, so far generally not many problems because of those temperatures above freezing and not a lot of snow and sleet. >> just wet roads. mostly what we're hearing about this morning. although we are start to go get some reports of some sleet falling. just south and east of the triangle in places like angier, mcgee's cross roads and now in the four oaks area hearing about some problems -- well not problems but sleet falling. julia sims is out looking for problems. she's out in johnston county on 70. and where exactly are you? >> reporter: well, we are on 70 west headed from clayton into wake county and let's go ahead and show you the roads. like you mentioned, really no
8:15 am
this morning that we could find. we've traveled i-95 down to fayetteville through harnett county and wake county, and the roads are in good shape. you know, it's wet, we are running into sleet. pretty much everywhere we go. but it ends very quickly. so more than an anoins rather than anything else. so, you know, if you get -- get out, put your coat on, grab your umbrella, and call it a day. brian. >> and you get back home as soon as possible to get into the bed or something. because that looks miserable out there with the rain and the cold temperatures. i just want to point out because of the wide angle of that lens, it looks like they're traveling a lot faster than they are. they are doing the speed limit out there. seeing those wet conditions just a reminder that you need to remember to keep those headlights on whenever your windshield wipers are on, even in daylight ours. in that road weather index showing any problems that we see with wintry precipitation falling or confined mostly to the i-95 corridor and south and east.
8:16 am
air temperatures are going to warm up, we're not going to see any slick spots on the road. coming up in 15 minutes we'll have another update and i'll let you know about an important road closure that starts tomorrow. layla. >> we'll see you then. new overnight a man is facing charges for a crash that left one person seriously injured. he crashed into two cars that were stopped on highway 70 #r5, then took off, one man was between the two cars, when hit and was air lifted to unc. he later returned. in an update for utility customers leaders in wake county have now lifted a boil water advisory for a majority of customers impacted by a water main break. thousands of people experienced water problems in the area of chapel hill road near rdu and test results indicate that the water is safe for all use. still fewer than 100 customers are still advised to keep boiling water through this
8:17 am
so take note of these areas. those areas include airport boulevard, air tech drive. chapel hill road, copeland oak drive, rose ridge drive, and waldren court. an update, the goldsboro police they are investigating a murder. they say a man was shot and killed. it happened this morning a little before 3:00 at pine street and john street in downtown goldsboro. police have identified the victim as 27 year old bryant of dudley. they have not identified any suspects. a man has died after attempt to go compete in the annual krispy kreme challenge in raleigh. 58-year-old jeff woods was less than a mile into the race when he stepped out of it, complaining of chest pains. woods was rushed to rex hospital where he died. the event organized by n.c. state students challenges participants to run five miles, 2.5 miles from n.c.
8:18 am
tower down to krispy kreme. that's where they attempt to eat one dozen doughnuts and run back. friends of jeff woods say he did not run regularly but he wanted to participate because it seemed like fun. and the proceeds go to the north carolina children's hospital. we don't have an official word on his cause of death. new overnight a teen has died after he was hit by a vehicle last night. troopers say 17-year-old collins was hit from behind while walking on wine grass road. collins was heading east with the flow of traffic when he was hit. troopers say the vehicle what hit him left the scene. it is being described as a light colored suv or van with extensive front-end damage. take note of that number on the screen. that is highway patrol. (910) 618-5555. that is where you are to call if you have any tips in the case. now, to the campaign trail. election 2016. ben carson and donald trump

there to vote for it. that's not leadership. >> i think the experience is not just what you did, but how it worked out. >> reporter: arson criticized senator cruz over his win in iowa. on caucus day kroo -- that car southern was stepping away from the campaign. >> it gives us a very good example of certain types of washington ethics. >> when this transpired i apologized to him then and i do so now. >> after the debate donald trump told me who he thought had the best performance. >> well i i think i won the debate tonight. everyone tells me we won. >> reporter: voters here will decide who wins the primary when they head the to polls on tuesday. danielle nottingham cbs news, new hampshire. keep pounding. keep pounding away there. super bowl 50 is tonight. it is tonight t really?

8:22 am
>> i was a little kid, i was writing letters. >> owner jerry richardson saw one of those laters, wrote young daved back and invited him down. >> just to have the owner of a team for a little kid in michigan to get the opportunity to come and meet the franchise it was amazing to me. >> reporter: the experience turned him into a die-hard fan. during each of davids three deployments he's received care packages from the team. >> to get something from the boss, the owner who can do a million things on that day but he took the time to write a handwritten note it changed -- i mean it truly changed me. >> reporter: mid season with the panthers undefeated, the organization teemed up with the uso and bank of america to surprise davids nfl soldier with tickets to the super bowl. now, he's here with his wife andrea, experiencing the moment like never before. inches away from the lombardi trophy and watching the team he loves try to bring it home. >> i think the moment they come out on the field, i'm going to be in like a surreal, like,
8:23 am
don't know what to do. my wife is going to be laughing blast. >> reporter: he really is like a big kid. he's having the time of his life here. they do a 5-year-old son. he told me it was very interesting to watch his son, watch the team this year and cheer them on. they have got 14 games undefeated. he said his son was very upset when they lost that one game with you he was able to turn it around that he thinks thinks son was really able to identify with. so a will the of lessons on the field but a lot off, as well. layla and brian. >> that's a great story. katherine brown, reporting live from california. great job out there. we'll see you later on wral pregame programs begin at 11:00 a.m. with before they were pros. >> at noon, road to the super bowl in that one all iron team super bowl. >> and at 2:00, the super bowl today, champion between carolina

8:29 am
situation we've got going here. we'll take a look at the radar lapsing over the last hour for you where we have do have precipitation that has moved into a good portion of eastern north carolina. we talked about yesterday how it was a little bit tricky figuring out where the western edge of where this would be and it might be a pretty sharp suddenen cut off asn no andeethwoayttle corridor, but the chances increasing to the southeast. that's more or less what we're seeing this morning. there's a little bit of a bulge back into eastern wake county. you can see going on here. recently we'll zoom in and take a little tour here up to the north where right along the i-95 corridor a little bit to the east toward infield. we'll look at some mixed precipitation indicated by radar and some of this may be actually getting to the ground as rain. but some reports of sleet mixed in as well. some wet snowflakes down toward wilson. some decent steady precipitation. fairly light going on.
8:30 am
just kind of of the on the bonder line there. seeing a little precipitation and heading on down toward the south. the fayetteville area has been getting some precipitation it's fairly lit right over fayetteville. a little heavier over cumberland county father we'll take a lk at some of the numbers we've gotten so far here in just a little bit. first we take a lk at our current town by town temperatures, 37 in durham and moncure. same thing for cary and the station here in raleigh. so we're about 37. buckhorn at 38. same thing in erwin, we're a little cooler up toward the north. 34 for roxboro. 33 for south hill. fayetteville is at 36. as is goldsboro. so we're aew degrees above freezing that's helping out greatly with the roads. pockets that might form could cause -- so far from the raleigh area north and west no precipitation noted. it could be that we get through the day without seeing precipitation in these areas or anything measurable but we'll still watch for several more
8:31 am
of that bulge is a little father west before it pulls out. only -- almost half an inch for goldsboro. almost an inch in clinton. so especially the central and southern costal plain. precipitation rates have been a little higher. you can see all of this developing during the last 24 hours on satellite and radar. the wide view, a lot of high clouds over western north carolina, the low clouds and precipitation over the east. we had low pressure that formed yesterday off the northern coast of florida that's been moving toward the north and it's set up off the southeastern -- with an upper level low moving in a place over george yorj this morning. that will continue down just off the coast later on today and depending on its exact tilt and how it interacts with the surface low, we'll control how far westward some of that precipitation gets and whether some of it interacts enough with cold air to get some snow to the ground. now, as we go on between today and tomorrow that upper low and the surface low both lift away to the northeast pretty quickly,
8:32 am
most of us are done with precipitation, other than one more upper level trough that's coming toward us late tomorrow and on into tuesday and late tomorrow and tomorrow night, we'll have a chance of some showers with that. after that, kind of a broad trough with most of the moisture to our east but cold temperatures coming into the eastern united states and we're going to have a cold period as we head on through wednesday, thursday, and probably into friday. we do start to recover a little bit and warm up a little bit toward friday into early next week. generally, mixed precipitation, a lot of it rain but maybe a pocket or two of snow and sleet. most of the -- isolated pocket or streak, where we get a trace to less than an inch. 39 at noon. still with some of that around, about 44 at lunchtime and probably drying out from the west. weall back to about 40 by 8:00 p.m. later tonight a low of 31. tomorrow's high about 53. and we'll start tomorrow with mostly sunny skies early in the day and a little chance of precipitation. but as we head through the afternoon it looks like cloud cover will pick up and by the
8:33 am
we'll have a about a 50% of showers. -- on tuesday, mainly dry about 45. it looks like we'll be colder though. wednesday, thursday, friday, lots of sun those days. but we only get into the upper 30s, maybe some mid-30s on thursday. now, brian is here for another update on the roads. >> thankfully not hearing any problems on the roads, just wet conditions. even though we are getting some reports of sleet in johnston county. this is in fayetteville at cliff daily at the all american expressway. you can see it is mighty wet. and of course this is all south and east of the triangle this morning. remember through the day as you head out as you run into any wet conditions you have the windshield wipers your headlights need ton on as part of the law. so along that i-95 corridor along the south and east that's where we're seeing problems with the rain this morning. some of it mixed in with a little bit of sleet or snow. mostly sleet according to the reports we're getting, especially right around the four oaks area and also mcgee's cross roads.
8:34 am
also, you want to keep this in mind for tomorrow's morning's commute in cary and morrisville. they're going to be closing morrisville park way tomorrow morning, between bristol creek drive and crabtree crossing parkway. there's a railroad crossing right in there and d.o.t. is going to turn that into a bridge so it's going to be separated from the road and it's going to be closed for six months. and of course morrisville parkway is very busy. they have a detour set up. those are already very busy roads and that additional traffic from morrisville parkway will make them even busier so plan on some extra delays as people get used to those detours tomorrow morning. back to you, brian. >> i learned all i need to know from brian. another look at this morning's top stories after a braeng.
