just piled up so fast, their bus was not able to move, but the 50 or so people on the bus, including teachers and chaperones, have in making the best out of a bad situation. we have been receiving dozens of pictures and videos of students playing in the snow, sledding down the highway, and singing on the bus, and even built an altar out of snow and joint dozens of students from other schools around the country to have a mass outside, that there is a problem with a bathroom on the bus that is not fully functional. >> we are slowly running low on food, and we have completely run out of water, so if we want to get some water, we have to go outside and fill our water bottles with snow and go back into the bus and wait for it to melt. kim: as he heard, they had run out come of it here from a father in des moines who is anxiously waiting for his daughter to come home.
todd: we have our own chance for flurries right now. jason: we do, and we have increased chances, but until then, we will not see anything nearly to this scale. you can still see some winter portions out in western virginia, maryland, and they are still getting pounded with a lot of snow, and i wanted to things into perspective as we see a little bit of snow, but we have not nearly as much as you can see here. in perspective, take a look at what we have in an average winter, 35 point three inches, and you can see up to 40 inches is what has fallen on portions of the east coast, so they have seen way more than we see in an average winter season. we have a little bit going on out there, not much, and we see the clouds on the increase and some breaks out to the east, but largely, just a dreary, cloudy day.
hang tight with the mild trend. 24 degrees, and we are on track for the mid-30's this weekend, and i will go over that coming up shortly. todd: helping to find an inmate who escaped from the newton correctional release center. officials say edward shorter was not present during a routine count this afternoon. he is 28 years old with tattoos on his upper right and upper left arm, serving a 20-your sins for possession of a controlled substance. if you have any information about his whereabouts, call 911. lore: they like that there is a good favorability rating with ted cruz, and on the democratic side, hillary clinton chosen,

wrapped up, and also there was chuck grassley who did not indoors the candidate but said he was happy to be at the event. and donald trump told the crowd that his supporters are so loyal, they would stick with him even if he shot somebody in the middle of new york city. mr. trump: my people are so smart, and you know what else they say about my people? that i have the most loyal people, where i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i would not lose any voters. it is like incredible. todd: and a man from johnston received a citation for bringing his nine millimeter pistol through airport security. a tsa officer noticed the gun during the screening process,

jason: yes, and we have chances for mid-30's for a couple of days in a row, but we have a chance for some snow on top of that. we did see some flurries earlier on, and we have a beautiful picture of a snowflake. a really extreme close-up. thank you for sending in that sure. we have a few of those up on our site,, ulocal. those clouds continued to brush eastward, and we will see more fill in from the west, so not looking at much as far as a clearing goes, tonight, but we have had the south wind, and that will continue throughout tomorrow. temperatures eventually climbing into the mid-30's. we will not be losing that much tonight, a mile 25 degrees, our low as we head into the evening in the mid-20's the matter where you're at, 24 for us in the metro. otherwise, as we go throughout
we are above our average of 31 by five degrees, and that is the for the above average we have been for quite a while. we do have that system that will eventually push through monday. sunday is not looking bad however, as our temperatures are holding steady in the 30's, and we are mainly just looking at cloud the evening. we have got a couple of systems, one off to the north, and one trying to make its way in from the south, and that will increase the snow chances mainly on monday, and we could see some spots with a wintry mix. central and southeastern portions of the state for us, so if you're really anywhere in that area, plan on an inch or two of snow in the spots, and some ice to go along with it, but for tonight, it will be relatively mild out there. 24 degrees. we will keep the clouds all night long and tomorrow also, and the went out of the south
we will be up to 36 degrees, and a wintry mix works its way in in later portions of the day, but by and large, a beautiful day if you do not mind the cloudiness. mid-30's pretty much no matter where you're at, enough for snow melting temperatures, and like i said, we have got a couple of days. that to read next roles in on monday. we are at 28 degrees on tuesday for the high, but after that, 39 on thursday, and into the 40's on friday before the next system makes its way in saturday and sunday. either way, we are still way above freezing. laura: thank you, jason, and tony has some sports.
tony: here's the truth -- some have proposed to cut social security for the elderly and disabled vets. i disagree. in fact, not only should we not cut benefits -- we should expand them. my plan for social security increases benefits and cost of living adjustments and raises minimum payments for low-income seniors. it will ensure that all seniors can retire with dignity and respect. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. (phone ringing) you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan
