4:07 pm
lifted travel restrictions, as you mentioned it makes it easier for u.s. citizens to travel to cuba. he lifted restrictions on banking and trade and commerce. remember that delegation of north carolina farmers travel to cuba six months ago to explore those trade relations. hoping to tap into the market there with north carolina products, specifically apples and poultry. now, they are even more optimistic about improved trade relations with cuba. >> anytime that we can ease sanctions, trade sanctions, to allow the possibility, there is no guarantees, but to allow the possibility of sending more food products to cuba, certainly, we will support that. >> reporter: there is a possibility we could see the president make more announcements for changing u.s. policy while in cuba, or possibly shortly after he is overturned. i want you to know this because sometimes people get confused. while the president has lifted a lot of those restrictions, in the u.s. with cuba, the u.s. embargo on cuba still has not been lifted. that will take an act of congress. i will be taking you inside

4:10 pm
4:11 pm
4:12 pm
a rush of presidential candidate through the state in the major primary, the outcome shapes the election race moving forward. joining us now is doctor jarvis hall, political science
4:13 pm
big wins in our state yesterday and across the nation. is the race over? does this lock up the race for them or not necessarily? >> a lot of people are saying that but mathematically it is not over, especially on the democratic side. but it looks kind of bleak for bernie sanders. he has done a good job and run a good campaign and raised a lot of issues that ordinarily would not be, such as economic inequality, and free education or trying to make education more accessible. on the republican side, it is still not over, especially with the wind by john kasich in ohio. that could lead to a contested or brokered convention in cleveland, into the summer. a lot of people looking forward to that, because political junkies like they are getting excited about stuff like that. >> that could be interesting if something like this happens. what a year for studying politics. >> exactly. that's what i tell my students.
4:14 pm
this as i am. the mac as far as the senate or governors races, what can we expect to see? >> i think that you will see a lot of strategizing to try to figure out whether to nationalize the campaign, i suspect the republicans may be running away from what's going on on the national level, whereas on the democratic side, deborah ross and roy cooper , they may be trying to figure out exactly what they should do in terms of trying to link to the national campaign. so, that's going to be interesting in and of itself. i think that these races will be very important, they will get national attention because north carolina is still a swing state. they went for president obama in 2008 but rick -- mitt romney in 2012. >> different strategies on both sides. do you expect a lot of outside money? >> i think especially for the senate race, because the
4:15 pm
that is something they need to take back, they are defending less seats on the republican side. i think they feel as if they have a chance. here is the opportunity for the democrats in north carolina to steal the sea from the republicans. they have a very formidable candidate on the democratic side, in deborah ross. i think you may see some outside money, especially from groups like emily's list or something like that that will give some resources for the senate race. looking ahead, do you have any predictions? whato you think will happen? can you say that? what do you expect to have? >> my mind tells me that hillary clinton will be the nominee for the democratic party. donald trump will be the nominee for the republican party. what the republican party is going to do after that i'm not really sure but a number of republican voters said they
4:16 pm
some spoke even today about paul ryan, current speaker of the house running for president. he backed off of that a little bit, so, trump has talked about having conversations with ryan and mitch mcconnell, the leaders of the republican party in the congress. you know, so they may be resigned to the fact that trump is going to be the nominee. they may coalesce around him. that will be interesting to see because he has turned things around. he has set political science back several years. >> it has been interesting, that is the tamest way to describe it. doctor jarvis hall, we appreciate it. we have all of the results for the primary actor and 11. we also offer precinct level data on 11 races. to see how your neighborhood voted, go to the don't miss it
4:17 pm
>> i did not vote for the extended heat wave but it has been nice. >> 1 degree shy of a record high. 85 at the airport, 86 the record high. but the gardens are loving it, we've got a live shot from the wral gardens. azaleas are starting to pop and if all goes well i will give you a shot from outside. let's take a look at the weather headlines, cold front this afternoon, very small chance we could pop a sher in the area. the color trend will begin once the front moved on by. we will have some chilly nights in the night ahead and mild afternoons until the weekend when it starts to cool down. we will see that in the 7-day forecast. a soggy sunday is a possibility along with that bigger chill. you will see that in the 7-day forecast coming up. yesterday we could easily see downtown raleigh in the shot, that looks hazy. maybe some pine pollen mixing in as well, i noticed yellow on vehicles in the parking lot earlier.
4:18 pm
today, 86 set in 1945. i would not be surprised if we tie that. some locations at 88, wilmington at 88. southwest wind, mantra, 85, 85 durham. expanded view, 87 in fayetteville, these are summer numbers. 88 greenville, 84 s. hill, virginia. we can watch the progress of the front, you see the cumulus clouds popping up ahead of the cold front. no shouts yet but in southeast virginia there could be a thunderstorm. expand the view, that is where the front is located. there is a front moving to the mid-atlantic states. this is the same one that expanded up into northern illinois but most of the energy moved past us, to support the ring, so we're not expecting anything in the way of precipitation with the passage of the front. it has been a warm afternoon not only in north carolina but alabama, florida, temperatures well into the 80s and then off
4:19 pm
cool air and this comfortable air will be upon us tomorrow with temps in the 70s instead of 80s. with the front coming by there is a small potential for thunderstorms. when we see the light faded green we call it the general thunderstorm category. there is a small chance the storm could pop, that is a marginal risk, you look on the scale, that is on the low end but we could produce large hail. there is the warmth ahead of the front, 85 at rdu, 87 charleston, 82 montgomery. there is the cold behind the front. first, 70 tomorrow and 60s friday. here is our forecast as we head into the evening. still warm by 8:00, 73. wind begins to die down at that point and overnight, we should be in the 40s and 50s, 45 roxboro, 51 fayetteville, 55 fayetteville again with clear skies. we start your thursday with a very nice start, bright start and a little color than what we had this morning, 54 by 8:00 a.m., wind will be light and
4:20 pm
mid and upper 80s, mid and upper 70s, 10 degrees cooler. 75 raleigh, and by the end of the day there should be high, thin clients coming in from the south and west that make it more cloud cover for the southern counties. from the triangle north and west it will be mostly sunny for the afternoon. here is the 7-day forecast; comes as a stepladder, going down gradually with 75 tomorrow, 69 friday, 54 saturday. mostly cloudy skies by the end of the day. there could be rain but most will be saturday night into sunday. we drop the high sunday into the 40s because it looks more confident that will be the case that coldest day sunday, monday, tuesday and wednesday of next week, mostly sunny skies and a stepladder rising temperatures. it is like bookends. 75 to begin with, 75 for the ending but in the middle rather chilly. >> that is going to be really close, that 39. >> it is. i'm hearing from my mom, i'm not going outside.
4:21 pm

ice from forming on airplanes. what's trending. >> we have told you about this hacker group called anonymous. they have those masks were they attacked different organizations, their software. now they are attacking donald they are vowing to dismantle his presidential campaign, and expose what he does not want the public to know. so, they are aiming to do all of this april 1, april fools' day. they are going to take down one of his property websites in chicago. they say he does not stand for anything but personal greed and power. they did this last year apparently when he talked about banning muslims from coming into the u.s. they took down one of the trump towers, one of the servers for that. they are going all out and are saying april 1 is when they will take him down.
4:25 pm
nothing has affected his popularity. >> it makes you wonder if it's april fools' day, are they really going to do it? but if they have done it before they can do it again. kind of scary how much affect these guys can have on a website. >> how easy it seems to be for them. april 1. at night. >> i have stepped on them barefoot. >> slugs can keep you safe the next time you fly. research created gels and coatings that mimic their slippery coat. what they did is observe their environments, they lived underground and come out, they are not covered in dirt. why? that slimy coat makes the dirt slide right off. >> as long as they don't go through some sort of salt storm. >> right. and shrink up. tnd cgo thig,
