5:23 pm
then a clearing sky. so eventually it does wind down. 17 the high with a west wind there 12 to 24. things will be a lot quieter tomorrow night into wednesday. although a weak disturbance wednesday bringing us cloud cover and some flurries we are thinking here. mid to upper teens both days and then it starts to moderate. we lose the heart of this arctic air. thursday increasing clouds 29. there will be an east coast storm wrapping up. we think we will miss out on a lot of snow here. that's the latest thinking. wind will be a factor and i have an alert out for friday afternoon and friday night. 32 friday and the weekend not too bad. windy saturday and 30 saturday night 22 and mixed sky sunday and up to 34 degrees.
5:24 pm

5:27 pm
we have also got to combat income and wealth and inequality. >> reporter: on the republican side frontrunner donald trump made a play to evangelical voters by speaking at the christian liberty university. >> you look at syria. if you are christian they are chopping off heads. you look at the different places and it is under siege. >> reporter: trump's biggest rival in iowa ted cruz launched his campaign at liberty and favorite among evangelical voters and touch tried to steal away the support cruz stepped up criticism of the billionaire reminding voters of past democrats. >> ronald reagan did not spend the first 60 years of his life advocating for big government and politics. >> says not reserved to republicans. in saturday's debate hillary clinton and bernie sanders battled over guns, health care and the financial system.

5:29 pm
as 2nd corinthians and you could hear chuckles from the crowd at liberty university. what is interesting that event trump was at is a required thing students have to go to. it can be a tough crowd and they let trump hear it when he made that little miscue. >> dan: ryan my career has taken me through iowa caulk us weeks. this is the dead push how important iowa is and it springboards to the other states. who do you look to come out in the last two weeks to push so hard. who will push hardest in the next two weeks. >> i really think donald trump has most at stake because his whole campaign is based on winning. tomorrow he has a big announcement which they are playing close to the vest right now. the rumor is, he will unveil a prominent endorsement, perhaps sarah palin.
5:30 pm
and she talked very highly of donald trump. she also talked highly of ted cruz. someone like pay lynn could bring them out to caulk us and in the last two weeks a lot can change and voters who still haven't made up their mind and the very nature of the caucus is a long process where you try to go and convince people to support your candidate. all bets are off. we don't know what will happen until the votes actually come in. >> dan: ryan, you are a guru and look forward to seeing you in the next couple of weeks. >> tiffani: stay up to date on all the poll numbers and news on the campaign trail download the cleveland 19 news app. >> dan: big debate by british lawmakers whether or not to ban donald trump from the u.k. thousands signed an on-line petition calling for the billionaire to be blocked from
