7:47 am
again but cooling off on tuesday. wednesday we sort of moderate 62. temperatures ticking up wards from there. watching a low pressure system developing out here west of st. louis. another low pressure down here in the southeast that is pulling a lot of moisture from the gulf. so you see this cloud shelf pushing northeast from this system here keeping us in the overcast department for most of our easter sunday. we should stay dry. however, we do expect that rain moving to the northeast. showers would start down south in southern delaware, south jersey and overspread the area tonight into tomorrow. you want to have the umbrellas handy tonight as well as waking up early tomorrow and heading out as we start the next workweek. some of the rain could be heavy. see this overnight monday morning, 3:00 a.m. temperature readings will dip down and then sort of bounce back tomorrow. but as our future model shows us
7:48 am
by 11:00 a.m., we still have showers scattered with overcast skies. as i mentioned, some of that could be heavy before the whole system gets out of here monday night. tuesday high pressure moving in. temperatures will be on the cooler side though, but we will dry out. for today, we should stay dry for most of the area most of the day. there's the good news there. 48 degrees through the 10:00 a.m. hour then bumping all the to 59 for the high temperature later on this afternoon. seven-day forecast has us sort of taking a little weather ride with rain tomorrow. we dry out, then we warm up into the 70s thursday, friday. katy. >> looking forward to that. thank you, karen. just a few minutes before the start of the "today" show, joining us with a look at what you're working on this morning. good morning. >> hi, katy, good morning to you. just ahead on sunday morning, we'll bring you the latest from
7:49 am
brussels. we learned overnight identities of two americans killed in the attack confirming their family's worst fears. we'll tell you more about that and update you on the latest of the investigation. also alabama's governor under fire, accused of miss using state funds and having an affair with one of his top aides. will he be forced to step down? >> don't let her size fool you, this petite 18-year-old looks tiny, especially standing next to the tire. when she gets behind the wheel of this monster truck she is definitely under control. she'll take us for a ride. reviews are in. while many critics think batman versus superman movie is a super flop, that's not stopping people from flocking to theaters in droves. >> that and more when we get started sunday morning. happy easter. >> you too as well. we'll see you shortly. thanks. well, turning now to decision 2016, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
7:50 am
we've seen that this week. reflecting on america's future at a time of deadly terror in europe is the main topic on nbc's "meet the press." joining us now live for a preview is moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. hi, chuck. good morning. >> good morning. good, bad, ugly, that's the best description i've heard of the campaign trail. that's what this week felt like. >> i would say it's pretty accurate. let's start with the republican race for president. it devolved into vicious attacks this week focusing on the candidates' lives while the world was reeling from a deadly terror attack where americans were killed. what is the political fallout? >> i'm still shaking my head. i thought it was going to be a week fill with basically commander in chief test where we would see all the candidates trying to show how they would handle a moment like this. for the first few hours from john kasich, cruz, clinton, sanders, that's where things
7:51 am
looked like it was headed, and then things devolved quickly. seems to be a pattern. sometimes trump impacts it himself, sometimes trump takes advantage of it. every time there's a moment where it seems trump is going to be put on the defense, he had a horrible interview on his foreignsey vision with the "washington post" early this week that could have easily been dogging him all week, sort of non sequiturs all over the place. instead the subject is turned personal. suddenly we're talking about ted cruz's personal life. we went from what could have been a week about what could have been donald trump's lack of foreign policy and security vision we're talking about ted cruz's personal life. cruz finding out what it is like going against trump. they can all tell him how it works, it doesn't look pretty. >> no. bernie sanders one of your guests this morning.
7:52 am
he swept three western caucuses, we've been talking about that. that would seem to give him clinton but is it enough to cut off clinton's path to nomination? >> so far it doesn't. what clinton hoped and sanders camp worried, talk of inevitable clinton nomination built up maybe enthusiasm for washington, alaska, hawaii would be diminished. that wasn't the case. got the large victories he need. the question, can he start winning in primary states. that's the problem. he wins small caucus states because it's core progressive activists that show up to them. when it's a larger electorate of primary voters, other than michigan and new hampshire he hasn't had a lot of success. wisconsin early april. two big primary states sanders can win. he's got to start winning states like that on a consistent basis to truly make this democratic nomination fight look more competitive than it looks today.
7:53 am
