6:04 am
highway there. be careful if you are driving in this area. you may want to take a different on ramp. we are starting to see vehicles slowing down as they approach this accident. so take it slow. even if you are just driving in other parts of durham and wake counties, wherever you are, try to keep it slow on the roads because we are still seeing that black ice that is creating dangerous driving conditions. especially side roads that we have seen there is still ice covering those roads so be very careful. we will stay out here and bring you the latest. we will try to get a little closer and see if we can get more information on what happened there. we will stay out here and send it back to the studio, anthony and barbara. barbara: ed crump is monitoring conditions in wake county. where are you and what are you seeing, ed?

6:06 am
the sun is up and take off to work you will be better off, i think much better off trying to get out then and give the sun an opportunity. but watch out for black ice and, barbara and anthony, i can't caution enough, i think we need another 24 hours of melt before we feel a whole lot better about the situation. i will toss it back to you for now. anthony: that is good advice, ed crump. now this is terminal two at r.d.u. international where airport operations are returning to normal. if you are trying to led north today on a plane you could be stuck because 22 flights scheduled it leave have been canceled today. most were headed to new york city or washington, d.c. call your airline before you led to the airport if you plan to catch a flight to the northeast. barbara: duke energy is making strides to death power back on.

6:30 am
i-540 and glenwood avenue you see the snow but the road looking all right. we will go to i-540 and i-40 intersection more taillights and traffic volume increasing. still seeing green on the maps there. i-40 and harrison avenue the volume picking,. both sides of the road there. but looking pretty good as you head out. at least on the main roads. side roads are different. barbara: that is what we are about to check. anthony: check being it out because a lot of the main roads in good shape, black ice and accumulated snow causing real problems. edit crump is live in breaking news one at stone gap court in west raleigh. how are conditions there? ed. . this is what you will find when you come out of your neighborhood. you see frozen refrozen sleet
6:31 am
it is pretty good traction surprisingly. most people are scared of this. that is not the problem. the problem is on the cleared streets and i almost slipped there. i will try to get up here and show you. there is cleared street and looks fine but we have our headlights shining and this is a skating rink. the side street snow melted yesterday and washed down in a big area here and this is nothing but slick ice. you could ice skate on this. for a lot of folks look how big there is so when you drive on this you need to get off the accelerator and brake and just glide across it to try to make it to the other side. if you stop in the middle of it you will have a hard time getting going again. there is the thing we've seen all over the place this morning. smaller versions of this on the main roads. patches of there that will potentially cause wrecks and
6:32 am
should give there -- call the boss and see if you can come in maybe an hour after the sun comes up. because what we saw yesterday once the sun came up the ice on the trees started pouring off and of course the sun doesn't even have to be above freezing, the sun hits the black asphalt and it immediately starts to warm up. this will probably be melted not long after the sun is up. if you can delay that is the best suggestion. we need another full day of melting to get us out of the woods on this and make sure we don't have any more problems with black ice. anthony: thanks so much, ed crump. barbara: let's check the western part of the triangle with gloria rodriguez in breaking news one on wellingham drive. looks like the same situation as ed was talking about. gloria: pretty much the same. look at behind me. you see ice still here on the roadway.
6:33 am
although we are told most of the major roads are cleareded there is what residents are dealing with in the viewing area. they have icy conditions that could make driving very difficult. look here and you can see leftover snow and ice. right here it is pretty packed. this is still a concern but the main concern today is black ice because a lot of this is snow and ice actually refrozen overnight and some areas you are seeing black ice. we could see our vehicle here and we have been driving all over and we have the four-wheel driver which makes it easier. but yesterday i was driving a rear wheel drive vehicle and it was very difficult to navigate on the road with that. be careful whatever you are driving and try to go a little extra slower because you can encounter draws conditions out there. we are going to send it back to you in the studio. the main thing, drive slowly today. you bet.
6:34 am
wellingham driver -- drive. barbara: thank you, gloria. anthony: carolina panthers is a more positive story. barbara: cam and company had a blowout in the n.f.c. championship game. he threw for two touchdowns and ran for two others in their 49-15 blowout of arizona. this is just the second super bowl for the panthers in franchise history. governor mccrory was there and said it is a great accomplishment for the entire state. the panthers take on denver in super bowl 50 on february 7. they are the early favorite. we will have live team coverage beginning next sunday and in about 10 minutes joe mazur joins us live from charlotte. anthony: that will make us feel warmer. barbara: absolutely. it could take a few days to get flights back up and running. anthony: how r.d.u. is faring after the storm and we know it is cold but, don, how long do we have to put up with in?
6:35 am
freezing today and some may be

we will check the first alert barbara: let's talk about the morning commute. barbara is doing a happy dance. she is like yeah! all right. that is funny. i don't look as good. temperatures mid 30's. black ice in spots. the only spot i really hit on the interstate, you will hit a spot that looks wet and i had one bridge where i went whoa, so be careful. 20 south hill. 25 roxboro and 28 chapel hill. 21 sanford. 27 goldsboro.
6:37 am
by lunchtime 45 frees -- degrees and we will top out near 50. we will talk about the sunshine and it will feel great. the complete forecast in a bit. barbara: flights are starting to take off after the big storm but it could take a few days before it is back to normal. some delays are expected to continue the next few days due to went worth in the northeast. travelers planning to fly out today are encouraged to check status with the airline before you go to the airport. a lot of people going back to work today and there could be problems. anthony: cougheds ed caused by black ice. we will let you know what to expect. barbara: charlotte buzzing after the carolina panthers' win. joe: this state and south carolina buzzing as a huge win. we will show you highlights of
6:38 am

6:40 am
rocking the table. the fans were rocking the stadium and panthers for the 10th time scored 30 or more but the arizona cardinals had no answer. as is the case seeming will i every week the panthers were at full crank from the go buffalo design on the ted ginn jr. play. cam newton fakes the run and ginn zigzagging for 22 yards and opening touchdown. they led 10-0. can we give cam newton the m.v.p. trophy now? he throws this dart and he gets by the only defender that can bring little down and 86-yard connection and panthers up 17-0 first quarter lead. the cardinal are no slouches on over but against the panthers defense they made mistake after mistake and carson palmer who like cam is a former heisman trophy winner four interceptions
6:41 am
and luke keuchly recovers and panthers score the first 10 in the thaurdird quarter. the panthers keep pounding all the way to the super bowl. >> we were coached extremely well and we were prepared for the game and doing the things we were doing you know it was not just skeulg. it was preparation. >> this is incredible. it is the thing you work for. you play in the league a long time these seasons are hard to come by. this is not easy. >> it sis possible they are going to have me ready to go. joe: thomas davis has a broken right arm. he wants to play in the super bowl and don't put it past a guy who has returned from that he a.c.l. surgeries to get back on the field. one other injury note roman harper the starting safety left with an eye injury. he didn't return.
