portsmouth, new hampshire, huntington, new york, here in the east coast. here's what it looks like from portland to washington, d.c. even raleigh looking at some snow. we're going to watch this now as this system develops it will be pushing in a lot of heavy, wet snow. power looks could come down. tree branches coming down. 41 million people under some winter storm warning or advisory. here's how we track it. here we are, 7:00 a.m. from norfolk to boston. we have snow. the snow falling at 1 to 2 inches per hour. it becomes windy and with that heavy, wet snow we could be looking at power outages. around noon, portland, boston, warwick, on the edge of the system. it's a quick mover, it pushes its way off in the afternoon hours. here's what looking at as far as accumulations, heavy stuff along eastern maine, also into eastern massachusetts, boston, you could be looking at upwards of 6 to 9
7:03 am
rhode island, 6 to 9, 5 to 8 in islip. new york city 3 to 5 inches. as we say, guys, the good news is, it's a quick mover. it will get out of here fast. we are watching something that comes in early next week which may have a big impact along the east coast as well. >> keep us posted on that. thank you, al. appreciate it. let's talk politics. the presidential race. hillary clinton and bernie sanders faced off in their most contentious debate yet. clinton accusing sanders of running an artful smear against her. let's start with the debate. andrea mitchell was there. andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. with only four days to go until new hampshire votes, and on the democratic side, bernie sanders leading hillary clinton here by 20 points, the two rivals faced off in the heated debate. the stakes high for both sides. >> let's talk about the issues. let's talk about the issues that
7:04 am
>> reporter: clinton and sanders in their most combative debate yet. >> secretary clinton does represent the establishment. i represent, i hope, ordinary americans. >> reporter: the debate quickly exploded in a fiery clash over her ties to wall street. hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees. and his demands for campaign finance reform. >> enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks. let's talk about the issues. >> what we need to do is to stand up to the big money interests and the campaign contributors. >> reporter: under scrutiny for paid speeches to goldman sachs and dozens of other groups, clinton ducked a question about whether she'd make those speech transcripts public. >> in full disclosure, will you release all of them? >> i will look into it. i don't know the status but i
7:05 am
>> reporter: they fought over who is a real liberal. >> there's nothing wrong with being a moderate. you can't be a moderate, you can't be a progressive. >> cherry picking statements doesn't change my record. >> reporter: sanders talking about how he could lead the democratic party if elected. >> i am running for president as a democrat. i do want to see major changes in the democratic party. >> reporter: clinton was again pressed over the controversy surrounding her private e-mails. >> i think the american people will know it's an absurdity. >> i will not politicize it. >> reporter: despite calls to review the razor thin iowa caucus results, sanders shrugged off his narrow loss. >> you have 22 delegates, i have 20 delegates. we need 2,500 delegates to win the nomination. this is not the biggest deal in the world. >> reporter: sanders is leading hillary clinton among women in new hampshire and especially a
7:06 am
so today she is campaigning with women's governors and senators but she has not figured out yet how to inspire the younger women who are flocking to bernie sanders. matt and savannah? >> andrea mitchell on the trail for us, thank you. the republicans face off in their own debate tomorrow night. this morning we have a new poll on that race in new hampshire. marco rubio now in second place, closing in on donald trump. nbc's hallie jackson has that part of the story covered. good morning. >> good morning, matt. as marco rubio moves up, it's ted cruz slipping to third. today, even if he looks ahead to tuesday's primary, he's dealing with fallout from earlier this >> reporter: this morning, ted cruz is playing defense. dubbed by claims of dirty politics as claims of dirty
7:07 am
were published. the phone calls allegedly made by the cruz campaign, implying ben carson was dropping out. nbc news hasn't verified the calls but similar ones were made. >> please inform any carson caucus goers of this news and urge for them to caucus for cruz. >> reporter: cruz said his staff shared an accurate story, that carson was headed home to florida after the caucuses. >> i understand political opponents have been trying to make hay and misconstrue things. when you win, your opponents want to tear you down. >> reporter: opponents like donald trump laughing off what cruz calls his trumper tantrum. >> i don't have tan trumz. >> reporter: looking ahead to new hampshire. >> i like to win. >> reporter: trump still on top in our new poll with marco rubio rising in that state. >> we're working hard at it and we feel good about the progress we've made in iowa, the progress we're making here now.
7:08 am
everyone's attacking you, you must be doing something right. >> reporter: facing fire from rife rivals like jeb bush. >> he's decent, honest, he's everything we need in a president. >> reporter: mrs. bush doing what moms do, snapping pictures and later snapchating. >> do you think he's going to win? >> you're darn right. >> reporter: bush's brother working to make that happen. >> i know jeb. i know his good heart. >> reporter: former president george w. bush appearing in his first ad to begin airing in south carolina. >> jeb bush is a leader who will keep our country safe. >> reporter: for bush, the race for the white house becoming a family affair. bush and most of the rest of the republican field are now getting ready for tomorrow night's debate with the exception of carly fiorina. that's because she will not be
7:09 am
was just announced and fiorina is not polling well enough according to the criteria to be included. she's not happy about it and she's even getting backup from some of her rivals, a surprising source, ted cruz and ben carson backing her up. >> hallie jackson on the story. thank you. let's turn to chuck todd and rachel maddow. good morning to both of you. congrats on the debate. i hope you enjoyed the 20 minutes of sleep you got last night. >> absolutely. >> let's start with that debate. we saw a hillary clinton who was aggressive in tone. do you think, chuck, she did anything to change the dynamic of this race? either in new hampshire or in this larger battle for the nomination? >> well, i think that's what she was looking at is the larger battle. look, the clinton campaign doesn't believe they're going to win here in new hampshire but they're trying to sort of set the terms of the debate, put senator sanders on his heels a little bit.
7:10 am
they had a plan and she was pretty aggressive. >> rachel, though, senator sanders is being very, very disciplined when it comes to sticking to his game plan. he's saying she's a moderate. she's tied to wall street, period. is that strategy going to continue to be effective? >> well, it's been working for him at least in new hampshire so far. i mean, i think saying that this is all a home state advantage between new hampshire and vermont is a little bit of a stretch. there's definitely a real phenomenon behind bernie sanders. i think some of it is driven by doubts about secretary clinton, the one that he's driven home the most is she's effectively part of a corrupt system. it was interesting last night that she gave full voice to all of her criticisms of him. he never did exactly the same thing back at her. he made his case and he spelled it out but didn't, sort of -- he didn't go as aggressively at her in terms 6 language on the stage. that was i aform of discipline i think both candidates did what
7:11 am
was a very different approach. >> the moment of the debate was when hillary clinton said you've been running this artful smear. if you want to say something to me, say it right now and say it directly. how does that play? does it make her look strong or was the tone offputing? >> we'll see. it was interesting, certainly created an audible gasp and boos of sorts in the room, which frankly you could never tell in the room which side the audience was leaning, sanders or clinton. that moment everybody like stood up straight. i can tell you, savannah, in talking to the campaign, that was a real moment, meaning this wasn't like a planned idea, i'm going to accuse him of smearing the campaign. she sort of is like, enough is enough and she decided to go at him. i think the two of them might not like each other. >> all right. remans to be seen, obviously. we didn't get a chance to talk about the republicans. we have several days left until new hampshire.
7:12 am
chuck and richal, thank you guys. >> thank you. >> there are new clues this morning in that midflight blast that ripped a hole in the side of a passenger plane in somalia, explosive residue now discovered. nbc's keir simmons is following the investigation. good morning to you. >> a team of five u.s. experts have arrived to help with the investigation this morning. if it was a bomb, crucial questions include who got it on to the plane? and how? the force that ripped open this aircraft cabin was likely a bomb made of military grade explosives, multiple sources tell nbc news. a newspaper report of a suicide bomber in a wheelchair may not be accurate, according to a somali aviation official who says they're awaiting test results. you have not been told whether explosive residue has been found? >> no, not yet. we do no the have an official report from the team that did
7:13 am
that it is from explosives. >> reporter: he says the fbi has been invited to help investigate how some type of explosion blew a hole in the fuselage. but if it was a bomb, who is responsible? somali is home to al qaeda and isis-linked militants. another question this morning, was lax airport security a factor and where were the explosives hidden? a failure of the plane itself still isn't ruled out. increasingly looked like terrorism. and the man who was thrown out of that plane has been identified as a 55-year-old but officials tell us that he does not appear to have been a leaves more unexplained questions. >> keir simmons on the story. thank you very much. wikileaks founder julian assange is speaking out after a u.n. panel ruled he should be allowed to walk free.

7:15 am
target in the nation. >> super bowl is a national security event, and we recognize that this is just as important as any other one. whether it be the state of the union address or the pope visit. we're here to protect the skies for the super bowl. >> reporter: with more than a million people here for the super bowl, the land of high-tech is also going old school. metal detectors, bomb sniffing dogs, x-ray machines and sharp shooters, all part of the massive security crash. crush. >> makes me feel safe. it's what you want. it's what you expect. >> i'd rather be safe than sorry. i like the police presence. >> reporter: 60 agencies led by the fbi are working the ground and air. levi's stadium is 45 miles from downtown san francisco, a sprawling region to watch over. pilots are armed, ready to shoot down drones or any other threat from the sky.

7:41 am
while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the right move for us. pask your doctor about xarelto . we are back now. 7:43. the buildup and excitement surrounding super bowl 50. >> if you are lucky enough to visit the host city, you will have plenty to do. dylan soaked up the experience. she is into football. good morning. >> i certainly am.
