>> earlier i had 18 to 24. i'm now going 20 to 30 inches of snow, plus it's going to take a long time for us to clean up from that. so our plan today is to make it back to washington, d.c. if the storm is moving at about 40 miles per hour and we can do about 41, maybe we'll get there before the snow does, but it's going to be a slow go on i-81. we're watching the time here to go 25 miles. it's already going to take about 40 minutes. it's going to be a rough ride today. hopefully most people just stay home. willie and savannah. >> i see that wetness on your face. i hope it's snow and not tears. going to be a tough one. >> it's a little of both. >> dylan, thanks a lot. let's focus on the storm's impact on the capital city. officials in washington are taking unprecedented precautions to prepare. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is there for us. miguel, what's it looking like? >> reporter: hey, willie, so far just cold but certainly expect to be in the bullseye. they are expecting upwards of

7:09 am
its recent nuclear test with the u.s. and others weighing up more sanctions, and in the past north korea has arrested foreigners and paraded them on tv admitting to some wrongdoing to try to win concessions or diplomatic room to negotiate. no sign of any tv appearance so far, but the timing and the harshness of this statement, this arrest is no coincidence. the north koreans may try to use this young man as a bargaining chip. savannah, willie. >> we know previously americans have been held for years on end in north korea. hopefully this is different. new controversy on the republican side. ten days out from the iowa caucuses a national magazine is calling for all republicans to rally against donald trump and trump is out with a new attack ad this morning. let's start our coverage with nbc news correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: donald trump or ted

7:55 am
we also have seen the snow starting through western north carolina. we have some aerial footage of the snow in charlotte, north carolina. they're starting to get blanketed with a layer of snow as the snow continues to fall. icing is going to be an issue across the eastern section of the carolinas. but this whole storm system, we are just on the leading edge of it, and once the heavy snow starts, it's going to stick around for a long time. through saturday, in fact. so that's why we're measuring this storm and the forecast is measuring the storm, at least, in terms of feet. now this is what is moving to washington, d.c. so the bigger cities. washington, d.c., baltimore, new york, philadelphia. you all still have a few more hours to get out and prepare your last-minute plans before this storm hits. because this is what it's going to look like once the storm reaches you. we have basically just everything getting coated in white. and when you get those heavier bursts of snow, it will be whiteout conditions. then once the winds kick in on top of that, perhaps up to 60
7:56 am
visibility even more. the saving grace is this storm is hitting mainly over the weekend. so hopefully people will just stay home and stay safe. but al, we're in it right now. and we're going to follow it back to d.c. it's headed that way. >> well, stay safe on the roads, dylan. in fact, we've got this young lady. what's your name? >> macy buchanan. >> you're supposed to be flying out tomorrow morning? >> correct. >> what did you get on your phone? >> there is trouble with my flight. >> and you guys are trying to head back to d.c., right? >> yeah. >> you got a bus and your bus has been cancelled? >> yeah. >> there is a reason. you just saw it on the screen. we've also got severe weather to the south as part of this storm. we'r watching that, as well. however, when we get to the snowfall, it is going to be -- i mean, huge. stretching from the mississippi river valley, tupelo, mississippi. 1 to 2. louisville, up to 7 inches. charleston, west virginia, up to 18 inches of snow. and then we move further to the east, and boy, allentown, p.a., 10 inches. new york, 6 to 12.
7:57 am
baltimore, 18 to 26. washington, d.c., and that area to the west, anywhere from 18 to 26 inches. could be a foot of snow, and ice accumulations, big problems. we're going to see power outages stretching possibly all the way from central virginia back into central georgia. and i tell you, it's just going to get worse. it's going to be one of these storms where we're going to continue to follow the rolling activity. let's get the latest on our news. sheinelle jones has that. north korea is holding a college student for a hostile act. he's a student at the university of north virginia. north korea says he entered under the guise of a tourist and plotted to destroy unity. it comes amid tough sanctions over a recent nuclear test.

7:59 am
for 90 minutes, police were pursuing the driver of a stolen car who refused to stop. the chase finally ended thanks to a farmer and his huge flock of sheep crossing the road. the driver and three other people were arrested and are probably feeling a bit sheepish about the whole thing. >> oh! >> you're welcome. >> baa! >> you're taking roker's material. and it was a rude awakening thursday in the florida keys when a man woke up to find this guy. a huge eight-foot crocodile just relaxing in his backyard pool. it hung out until wildfire officers showed up and then figured it was best to wander out of there. i'll take a crocodile in a pool as opposed to this east coast weather. how about that? >> really? >> yes. >> i'll take the snow. >> i'll take the snow. >> i'll take a crocodile. that's how much i don't like snow. >> sheinelle, thank you. meantime, we've got an update this morning tied to amal clooney's recent trip to

8:01 am
endured while in custody made his situation even more urgent. >> he actually is losing the ability to feel the left side of his body. he needs urgent surgery. >> within days of our interview, the current government in the maldives announced it would allow him to travel to london to get that surgery. >> i think we're one step closer to justice. but there's still a lot to do. there's still grave problems in the maldives, and we have a lot to discuss. >> for now, they're celebrating the release of the man nicknamed "the mandela of the maldives." >> two days ago, i was in solitary. and now i'm able to be at least free right now. >> the former president is due back in the maldives in 45 days, after surgery. but if he goes back, he has to serve out the remainder of his 13 years in prison. >> which raises a question, what are the plans there? >> well, there's a lot of feeling that the government of the maldives would like him to
8:02 am
they don't want him to come back and be a political force. so i think the plan -- the lawyers are going to continue to advocate for sanctions against the maldives, to erase this sentence. that he can go back and be a political factor there. but 45 days. we'll see. >> talk about a legal force. amal clooney. wow. getting it done. cynthia, thank you. just ahead, ahead sang "hello it's me". another international superstar she just shattered. and we ask the age-old question. is it ever okay to eat in bed? >> thumbs up. and are your hands already dry or chapped? we've got some home remedies to protect your skin during the worst of winter.
