5:45 pm
decide to attend because if he doesn't some experts predict that his absence will hurt his campaign. >> reporter: he could change his mind, sure. i think you know, if he made peace with fox and they made peace with him and he had some spin he won, he could do it. but i got to tell you, there is no expectation here at the debate site of the iowa event center in des moines that trump is going to do that. they already are preparing for his rally across town at drake university. a couple of the candidates at least huckabee and some others say they are going to do what they have to and enjoy the trump spotlight he is apparently inviting other republicans who want to take part in his debate to join him there. it's going to be a vivid display, if these things go off as looks like they will go off simultaneously at one time the debate over here and trump here. of not just the divisions and the republicans party but how powerful donald trump is.
5:46 pm
he writes his own rules and he has different rules for des moines before this caucus. >> this is getting interesting. speaking of the other candidates who do you think stands to benefit the most with donald trump not being on the stage tonight? >> reporter: a couple things. let me get back to what you said before about what this is going to help trump or hurt. who does it help and hurt who is not named donald trump? you've got cruz who is going to be center stage because he's the one polling second, and so they are not going to have an empty podium to try to embarrass trump. they are going to put ted cruz in the center, and that puts him in the center of fire by all of the other candidates who want to take over from cruz the number two spot, the top challenger position to don at trump. that could be marco rubio for example. a lot think that rubio who is polling third in iowa, pretty good debater is going to go after cruz. that's not going to be good for cruz. could be good for rubio. donald trump, does it help or
5:47 pm
hurt him? it looks to be a gamble. a lot of republicans i spoke to today at least some i spoke to today in iowa who are not trump backers are peeved, but trump backers like the idea, keith, because look what it does. it has him protecting his lead, it makes him look tough and strong and leaves his people like cruz and rubio open to be attacked and him free from attack. so stay tuned. a couple of competing events from here in iowa. >> a lot to look at. always great hearing from you. thank you. you can count on nbc 10 for coverage of the iowa caucuses on monday, nbc 10's lauren mayk is heading to iowa to report from the campaign trail. you can see lauren's live report starting saturday night on "nbc 10 news" at 11:00. that's almost as interesting as the weather. the sun shining over

anything that melted during the day. so the rest of the area will be below freezing as well. so already at the freezing mark in quakertown at 32. 34 in bluebell, dropped in coatesville to 34. these are live updated temperatures. 37 degrees in reading and allentown. 36 at kane net square, 38 in washington township. 39 in trenton, 40 in wrightstown and mount holly and millville and woodbine, lewis, delaware 39. as you saw earlier there is no snow left in extreme southern delaware and south jersey. near the shore. you can see a little band of clouds moving through now. this is a little more impressive band back to the west. this thing is pretty much fallen apart as any snow flurries are concerned. this area looks like it's increasing a little bit with some rain showers at the leading edge, and in the cold air we have snow showers.

so that's the system coming through tomorrow. it's a cold front, and watch what happens to the temperatures. okay, we go below freezing during the night tonight. the morning rush, yes, it's below freezing. could be icy spots. and then temperatures go back up during the day. so we're in the upper 30s near 40 degrees, so even if we get snow showers, just pretty much melt unless it came down really, really hard. could see some rain showers ahead of it. just like what is happening now. and we could get a little bit of a burst of snow for a few minutes. that's what a snow shower is as opposed to snow flurry. and then by the afternoon rush looks like it's pretty much all gone. and then we have a pretty nice weekend ahead. mostly cloudy tonight with the refreeze late, 28 for the low in philadelphia, 22 north and west. tomorrow the wind the main issue. gusting up to 40 miles an hour
