cbs news meteorologist and climate specialist jeff berardelli is tracking the storm. what can we expect today? >> good morning. we're talking about wild weather especially in the northeast but even the pacific northwest. ski resorts will be happy. heavy snow on the way over the next two days. the real story is here in the northeast. heavy snow right now making its way out of the ohio valley into western p.a. with snowfall rates 1 to 2 inches an hour and as the storm cranks up later today it is really going to bomb out. winds will start to crank. talking high wind warnings in city area, long island, gusts could be up to 60 miles an hour. let's focus in on where the heavy snow is. state college, west of pittsburgh up to the finger lakes of new york so places like ithica and all that heavy snow moving through syracuse. at the same time on the southern side of the system there is an ongoing tornado warning. watch out in westminster. winds could be up to 80 miles an hour as the system makes its way very quickly to the northeast at 55 miles an hour. i got to tell you as a
8:05 am
meteorologist we are geeking out, guys. here is the reason why. really strong atmospheric river making its way from hawaii, powering our storm, and then that is translating into what is going to be a record setting jet stream in the north atlantic. winds will be 275 miles an hour in the upper atmosphere and so you'll have a tremendous tail wind. if you're flying across the atlantic we're talking probably the possibility of breaking a record there as well with a ground speed of 801 miles an hour believe it or not. if you're flying the opposite way it could take you an extra hour or two. it cuts both ways. >> all right. thank you very much. now let's get into a political forecast. seven democratic presidential rivals will debate tonight in new hampshire before its first in the nation primary. two new polls show bernie sanders and pete buttigieg fighting for the two top spots. iowa's democratic party says all precincts in that state are now reporting results from monday's caucus and those results show that buttigieg and sanders are
8:06 am
in a virtual tie among state delegates. jane sanders the senator's wife spoke with the circus cohost alex wagner about buttigieg declaring victory before all the iowa numbers were released. >> what was your feeling when mayor pete went out there and said, basically, i'm the victor? >> he said we have emerged victorious. i think candidates do what they have to do in order to move on. he needed iowa. he needed that. and the fact is they both had a good night. and others did not. but we're confident that bernie will end up being victor. >> alex wagner is also a cbs news special correspondent and she joins us from manchester, new hampshire. alex, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. >> so we have this new polling. it shows buttigieg and sanders, front-runners if not favorites. what does that mean to the rest of the field? >> reporter: it means that they are in the fight of their political lives. i think you're seeing that reflected in some of the rhetoric coming from the biden
8:07 am
campaign, the warren campaign knows that they need to do well here. and it reflects fundamentally to two realities, tony. the first is up until this point this has very much been a jump ball. democratic voters were shopping around. they weren't sure who they wanted to support. this was anyone's race. after iowa, it is a different story and it reflects the second truth, which is that democratic voters also want to coalesce behind someone. they see the president amassing a war chest, with all-time approval ratings highs. the republican party consolidated around this president and they know he will be a formidible adversary in 2020. therefore they want to find their nominee and get behind him or her. >> we have elizabeth warren in third place in the new polls. you might think she would do well there. she is from nearby massachusetts where she is a senator but i know some voters in new hampshire call massachusetts tax-achusetts and a lot of her policies involve raising taxes. is new hampshire make or break for elizabeth warren? >> i definitely think it is.
8:08 am
i was with the senator last night in an event and i asked her, you came in third in iowa. is there nothing your campaign wants to do differently in the state of new hampshire? especially given the stakes at hand? and, you know, the warren campaign is resolutely on message and she said, look. i'm not employing fancy political consultants. i am out here fighting the same fight i've been fighting my entire life. it is clear that she believes her message about big, structural change is the thing that is going to stand her in good stead with democratic voters and she is sticking to that message. a very different approach than joe biden. >> speaking of joe biden, his campaign had a big summit yesterday. he called it -- iowa a gut punch for him. he is running a distant fourth in the poll. what are the stakes for biden here now? >> huge. i mean, this is someone who was for a while a presumed front-runner. and to come in fourth in iowa and to have high stakes in new hampshire, joe biden is laying it out all on the field. he is being in quintessential
8:09 am
sort of biden overshare saying, look. i need this. if you guys don't come out for me, my candidacy could be over. there's a lot of hyperbole in american politics but in the case of joe biden if he comes out here with a third or fourth place finish i think it spells real trouble for his campaign not just in terms of support but also dollars. i mean, joe biden has limited funds left in his war chest and he needs the donor class to be convinced that he has staying power. >> alex, president trump is claiming victory after being acquitted. do the democrats need to turn the page when it comes to impeachment? >> jericka, let me tell you one thing. of the three senators that had to jet back to washington, d.c. for the impeachment trial, senators i should say four. bennett, klobuchar, sanders, and warren. they do not talk about this on the campaign trail because they understand a fundamental trug about where the electorate is about. this is not about impeachment and that is not going to win the race for democrats. this is about health insurance, the social safety net, climate change, gun safety reform.
8:10 am
ukraine does not figure into all of this. now, democratic members of congress have a different strategy in how the democratic party reconciles the national stage with the washington stage is anyone's guess going into the fall of 2020. >> very unique state, new hampshire. also very independent. only state in the union where there is no law requiring adults to wear seat belts. alex, we expect you to buckle up and be safe. i will see you on monday. when i will be out there as well. the circus airs sunday on showtime a division of viacom cbs. check your local listings. as i mentioned cbs news will bring you full coverage of the new hampshire primary on tuesday. i'll be in manchester with the latest news, insights from voters and much more. a public memorial is now set in los angeles as the city continues to mourn the loss of kobe bryant. the service is set for february 24th at staples center, 24 of course was bryant's number and staples center is where he played during his iconic career with the lakers. a makeshift memorial stood for days outside the arena after

8:22 am
and in general, hypertension can be silent. you may not feel anything but certainly in pregnancy, sometimes it's hard to tease out. you may have leg swelling and you think it's normal pregnancy. but sometimes it can be a marker of a bigger problem. you need to speak up. speak to your ob and potentially get referred further on to a cardiologist, if needed. >> the way she responded is impressive. are there ways to prevent heart disease during pregnancy? >> in general. but we try to educate women 80% of cardiovascular disease is preventable. things like, as you saw, diet and exercise and stress management. all those things can go a long way. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. don't feel like going to the grocery store? no. i don't. why don't you have a robot bring the items to you? that's a great idea! the major milestone on the road to bringing driverless delivery vehicles to your neighborhood. that's ahead on "cbs this morning."
