6:04 am
side, do a bunch of people show up. new people show up, dw donald t will win. if it's a traditional turnout, i think it will be about whether ted cruz can consolidate the evangelical support at dom nature traditionally the iowa caucuses. but that's the big unknown there. democratic side, it feels as if hillary clinton has a slight advantage. their organization and it's a complicated process that the democrats go through, a little bit different. and bernie sanders could bring out more people and still lose the caucuses the way this system works. i think the clinton people have an operation that being looks a lot more like barack obama's in 2008. and he was able to not just overwhelm the caucuses, but also manipulate the process a little bit so at that time he was able to make it so hillary clinton should have finished second, but he made it so she finished third. >> so do we suddenly see hits it is candidates disappearing from the race is this. >> i think tomorrow morning you

6:46 am
right now. blue line delays to largo. and malfunction at franconia spring field. take a look at this video. wssc crews are working to fix a prison water main in silver spring on university boulevard between piney branch road and carroll avenue. let's go to molette green who is live on the scene with more on the repair effort this morning. any progress? >> reporter: we just found out that an old section of pipe now cut out as the radio he pairs continue here at the scene. and a big heads up. lots going on this morning. you've got traffic flowing one eastbound lane open two westbound lanes open and of course people walking to school and to bus stops. want to show you a picture we just got of the broken 12 inch main. there it is. but the crews are having to dig a lot deeper, even putting in a trempg for safety reasons as
6:47 am
they check for other possible trouble spots down there. and as we come back out live here to the work zone, there is a big -- there is a truck covering the trench. that trench will keep the workers safe if a wall of dirt should give way. water customers, good news, not impacted by all of this. largely this is a traffic issue between piney branch and carroll avenue that could last into the afternoon hours. we'll have to continue to watch this situation as it unfolds. but progress being made, but still an area you should avoid if at all possible. back to you. 6:47. developing right now in leesburg, the first homicide of the year there. police say it involves two stepbrothers. it happened right across from the police station. officers say a woman ran into the lobby saying a man had been stabbed. he died at the hospital.
6:48 am
police say the two stepbrothers had been fighting. the victim's name is not the released. and in the district, a stabbing at club bar code. d.c. police say two men were stabbed in that area early this morning. one of them died. i will stand for you, i will fight for you through this campaign. and in the white house, i will work by heart out for you. >> monday night could be an historic night. >> i'd like to win iowa. i'm doing really well with the evangelicals. >> we will win the iowa caucuses. we will win the nomination and we will win the general election. >> presidential hopefuls working up to the late minute to win iowa. you caucuses begin around 7:00 tonight. they're the first real indicator of how americans actually feel about who is running for
6:49 am
president. aaron gilchrist is covering the caucuses and what they will mean for you live from des moines. why is this such a big deal? >> it really is a big deal. so many of them will actually commit time to go to the gatherings that the candidates are having and studying everything they need to know before they caucus and hear more from their friends and neighbors and commit to the process of casting a vote for a nominee. and ild te'll tell you that it bit involved. i'll walk you through what you can expect to happen tonight. on the republican side, it's a fairly simple process. there is a secret ballot that they will cast for each candidate in that case. the caucus then awards delegates based on the percentage of the vote that each candidate receives. it's worth noting that the democratic process is a little bit more involved. this will actually involve
6:50 am
people getting up in a room and then getting into groups. >> all the folks in theaeir precinct will form preference groups. and then subpoenas tas soon as preference groups are formed, we do what is called viability. >> so as you sort of see what happens, supporters will slclusr together and each candidate needs a 15% support in order for that candidate to be viable and then you can try to convince people to move from one group that is not viable into another group. it's a bit involved. and we expect the republican process in most precincts could take about an hour and we expect to be a little longer in some of the democratic precincts because there are more steps involved there. that's the latest from here. we'll be following the caucuses
6:51 am
throughout the day and up late tonight doing the same. for now back to you. and we've talked about how important voter turnout is tonight. you heard that from aaron. right now there a snow storm headed to iowa. it could affect the results we see. analysts say if young first time voters stay home, it may affects the campaigns of bust aernie sa and donald trump the most. the "today" show will be live in iowa and begins in just a few minute i really hope that snowstorm doesn't hit aaron. he's spent so much time covering the blizzard. >> and meanwhile closer to home, chuck, waking up to milder temperatures. >> yeah, we're on the warm side. the storm bringing the snow to aaron and the folks out this iowa today, that is bringing us two chances for rain. one today and then that storm gets here wednesday and could have heavy rain. early this morning, though, no
6:52 am
rain drops landing on your heads right now, but later today they sure will be. it's about six hours away. but we're at least dry on your way out the door this morning. temperatures are already in the mid and upper 40s. so no more than a light to medium weight jacket at most. future weather, skies going from partly to mostly cloudy very quickly this morning. by thonoontime, chances for rai. 2, 3:00, the rain really settled into the metro area. so the ride home likely to be a whole lot slower than the ride in. and pockets of moderate rain through southern maryland between 5:00 and 7:00. but in the metro area, rain most likely between about 1:00 or 2:00 on the front end and 7:00, 8:00 on the back end. we're in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees already. so it is a mild day for sure. so for today, mostly cloudy, rain showers moving on in as we get into the afternoon.
6:53 am
highs today mid to upper 50s. tomorrow good day to get the storm drains cleaned out you because there are chance for heavy rain wednesday. mild temperatures and moderate to heavy pockets of rain on wednesday. heaviest rain likely to come in just about the time you will head for lunch hour. so heavy rain and mild temperatures could cause flooding concerns wednesday afternoon. we'll keep a close eye on that for you. but then cool, sunny and dry weather returns starting on thursday in it on your weekend. so we still have the problem hanging around in silver spring. reminder only have some lanes of university boulevard open near powder mill road. so if you want to avoid that area, might be a good idea. you can take new hampshire or flower. because it will be a bit slow as the morning commute progresses here. inbound 29 at bull run host office road, delays building. earlier crash slowed things down quite a bit. when you take a big look at the beltway, overall volume looking very typical right now.
6:54 am
