the severe weather threat is out there. this morning, thunderstorms moving through central tennessee, through nashville, airport delays here, but not severe. later on today, we'll be tracking an area in ohio valley where there could be severe weather, threat for hail, possible isolated tornados, and some damaging wind gusts, another round of severe weather south of dallas. it will be a busy afternoon coming up here through parts of the country, just not as bad as yesterday, i don't think. >> thank you, steve. we'll be watching. it is tuesday, which means the country is waking up to another presidential contest for the nomination. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are duking it out for west virginia's 37 delegates. donald trump strolling to a guaranteed win in nebraska. then heads to capitol hill to meet on thursday, house leadership, including senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, as ryan
