waging in this country right now is to maintain a government of the people, by the people and for the people. >> reporter: sanders stopped short of calling the democratic contest a civil war but said that win or lose tuesday, he's in this all the way through california. >> i am in this race to the end. i believe it is good for the democratic party that we have a vigorous debate. that we bring more people into the process. >> reporter: clinton is ahead in polls in most of these states and independent voters who have come through for bernie sanders elsewhere are locked out of all but delaware so she's expected to have a pretty good night tuesday. >> yeah, and that's the tough thing, i mean in these closed primaries, he's depending on so many independents and they can't vote. >> these are closed primaries and those are a built more difficult for him. >> thanks very much. tune in to abc's "this week" for the latest on the race for the white house and interview with bernie sanders himself, that's tomorrow on "this week." all right, let's turn to some other top stories this morning. and for that we go to ron claiborne. hey, ron. >> hey, good morning to you, tom and paula, robert. good morning, everyone.

north korea launched what is believed to be a ballistic missile interest a submarine confirming the launch this morning. north korea has been believed to be developing the technology. south korean officials saying the missile only traveled a short distance. and a surprising reversal as prosecutors in arizona move to dismiss all charges against the man they had accused of being the phoenix freeway shooter. the case against 21-year-old leslie merritt jr. has been unraveling with doubts, questions surrounding ballistic evidence and the shooting time line. the landscaper spent the last seven months in jail accused of a series of freeway shootings in the phoenix area last summer before being released on tuesday. prosecutors say they will continue investigating and could, could refile charges against merritt. fiat is announcing a major recall. more than a million vehicles being recalled because they could roll away after the driver believed that
7:16 am
the vehicle was put in park and the carmaker acknowledging that the electronically controlled automatic transmissions in certain models were confusing to drivers. the recall includes recent model dodge chargers, chrysler 300 sedans and jeep cherokee suvs. 41 injuries have been linked to the transmission problems. take a look at this. a tanker truck in houston, texas, stuck in a huge hole after the pavement on top of an underground garage gives way. the truck was there pumping water out of the garage which was flooded from those recent torrential rains in that area. it's not clear if that flooding also caused the top of the garage to collapse. no one, though, luckily was injured. and finally a career high score for the boston celtics. isiah thomas as he leads the celtics to a victory over the loofrl are atlanta hawks. it lands him on an elite list of celtic greats, thomas jr. scoring 42 points in game three of the first round playoff game in boston to join celtic legends larry bird, john havlicek and jo jo white as celtic players who scored at least 40 points in a
7:17 am
playoff game. boston won it 111-103 but still trail the atlanta hawks in that playoff series, 2-1. there is more playoff action today including two games on espn. the oklahoma thunder taking on the dallas mavericks and the l.a. clippers against portland and tomorrow, sunday, right here often abc. >> oh, there's more? >> there's more. you can see, if you want to, the san antonio spurs square off against the grizzlies at 1:00 eastern and the reigning champs, the golden state warriors and steph curry and you've probably heard of him, they're playing the houston rockets. >> stephen curry. steph. >> yeah, he's a friend of mine. i call him steph. >> informal like that. >> he owes me some money too. >> who do you have winning it all? >> i got to go with golden state. what do you think? >> how do you not? >> unstoppable. steph curry is amazing. >> i'd love to see the clippers. >> thanks for going out on a limb there. i appreciate that, ron. >> you know what, it is what it is. >> what do you want me to do? okay, i'll take the clippers. >> rob always goes out on a limb for weather. there's probably snow somewhere. >> that's a transition. >> very nicely done.
7:18 am
like to consider it an educated guess and we'll do our best in the next 90 seconds. take a look at this video out of california. ron's old stomping grounds, just north of there actually. madera just outside of fresno, there were some gusty wind s yesterday that knocked down a couple of trees and winds are going to continue to blow in several spots across the west including southern california as things get cranking there and a couple storms coming in and wind advisories for flagstaff, arizona, as well. so could be some dust storms. got to be aware of that. not one, but two storms coming into the west. both will have some wind and some rain. about 1 to 2 inches of rain with that but a decent amount of jet stream energy that will hold together as it gets into the plains and that's going to create some problems tomorrow with the first system in the form of severe weather, northern oklahoma back through northern iowa including des moines and lincoln, nebraska, could see some strong winds and large hail, maybe a couple of isolated tornadoes i think later in the week, say tuesday or wednesday. we'll talk more about that. a better chance of seeing severe weather. but out ahead of tomorrow's system, look at this heat coming up. 80 in oklahoma city, 75 degrees in st. louis and by sunday or
7:19 am
this is today. by sunday we're looking at temperatures in the lower 80s across st. louis and near 80 degrees in chicago and eventually the northeast is going to warm up but it will be cool for a little bit. 72 degrees in san diego. some winds there, 61 and rainy in portland, 83 in houston looks good. some showers in the east coast in the morning and drying out in the afternoon. >> all right, we'll talk more about that severe weather threat and we'll go out on a limb, paula.
7:20 am
>> thank you. >> we'll go into may and talk about the extended outlook and i think if you like warmer weather, you'll like that. >> thank you. that's so giving of you. thank you, rob. >> i'm going out on a limb so i wouldn't trust much of it. >> no, i always trust you. you're always 100% accurate. correct. it is not forecasting. it is the sure thing with rob marciano. >> god bless you, paula. >> i know. you know, i got to guess this next story probably not high on the list of things anyone wants to happen to them or seems enjoyable. it's maybe one of your worst nightmares. imagine being stuck in an elevator but worse or we could say gets better with eight offensive linemen, notoriously some of the biggest guys on the team. university of southern california offensive tackle zach banner tweeted the entire incident saying we are stuck in an elevator with seven of our teammates. >> yeah, and at one point firefighters were able to open the doors of the elevator in between floors and give the guys some water. so what do you do when there are eight guys stuck in an elevator,

rob, great to have you here this morning as always. >> hi, paula, hi, tom. if you're driving across the country in the east coast, put the top down once the rain moves out. we are getting into severe weather season now in through mid-april. it's been fairly quiet but the next system that comes in over the weekend will arrive in the plains on tuesday, it's got a lot of cool air behind it and some dry air, as well and i think it will tap moisture from the gulf of mexico and our computer models indicating a decent amount of cape or a lot of energy in the atmosphere, a potential for a lot of rising air and we just need to get a little more jet juice and that can make things pop from oklahoma to wichita then on wednesday a little bit further to the east. looking beyond that, with that kind of pattern in place, it looks like it'll be in place for a couple of weeks. we'll have several shots of severe weather, but what it means for the east coast is that through early may we'll be above average, so temperatures will feel a little bit more june-like, i think, as we go through time. today in the northeast, some rain this morning, then some slow clearing and temperatures will be on the chilly side with breezy conditions but no
