6:47 am
see light snow falling on the roads there. we have seen a mixture of all of it. rain, sleet, snow as we've gone through parts of southern maryland this morning. but a better looking drive for folks who are commuting in right now. you still have to take it easy on the roadways because of the areas can have some slick spots. some people not heeding the warnings and taking it as slow as they could question. but we're still monitoring the roadways here in the 4 x 4. back to you. new fire on the campaign trail. confrontations and accusations in the final democratic debate before the new hampshire primary. chuck todd was one of the moderator and joining us live from new hampshire. chuck, good morning. >> reporter: i got the same weather if sounds like. >> yeah, unlucky. what jumped out at you last night is this. >> reporter: i think the intensity of it all.
6:48 am
i'll be honest, i had suspicion that they were ready to engage. they had certainly been engaging each other from afar. but they didn't waste anytime last night. rachel and i joked at one point i think we would could have just done one word and just thrown it out there and said wall street and then they would have gone at it. so the intensity and i think they both know the next three weeks will determine the trajectory of this democratic primary. how close is it going to be? is this something that is a two state if a mom nonor is it something more. and i think you can tell the clinton campaign decided to get aggressive because i think they're a bit nervous. >> and what should we expect from the republicans, chuck? >> well, this is -- will i think you'll see again almost sort of the same honestly train wreck that we've seen before. you'll have some candidates determined to just go after marco rubio. you'll have the collective pile-on that seems to take place
6:49 am
when it has to do with all thing ted cruz right now. and then there is the wild card of donald trump who is admitting exceptionally essentially saying he made a mistake skipping the last debate. but it will be all over the happen because you'll have so many candidates desperation mood, think jeb bush, john kasich, chris christie. they will be the real wild cards here. >> and we should probably expect to see more candidates dropping out after that. chuck todd live for from us ft. smith, new hampshire. and be sure to watch chuck on the "today" show to talk about all the primaries and candidates. you'll also find analysis from the entire nbc news team on the nbc washington app. your best source for political coverage when we're not on the air. it is 6:49. we're waiting to hear back from the prince george's county fire department about this fire in riverdale. firefighters worked there on a house on ashburn avenue.

6:51 am
grassy areas in southern maryland. there could be isolated slick. sos. no more than a light coating and conversational flakes around the metro. could get as much of an inch on the grassy surfaces southern prince george's county, northern calvert and charles county. southern calvert and st. mary's, slushy coating of up to maybe 2 inches could be expected. winter weather advisory posted for the western shore of the bay down into southern maryland. the back end of the snow is not far away. but it's still snowing pretty good down here from calvert beach to st. george island. more significant snow on the eastern shore. here is the back end of the precipitation already moving in to central virginia. it's racing in our direction. p so this is going to be in and out of here very quickly. future weather will show that in a second. right now, though, here is the reason it's not sticking to the roads. everybody even where it's snowing hard, everyone is above freezing and we will stay that way the rest of the day. temperatures will be near 40 by noon. 43 by 4:00 this afternoon.
