11:00 am
quickly this morning so any sunshine we see will only stick around for an hour or two on the drive into work. there may be a few early scattered snow and wintry mix showers across the state, but we should see more activity through the afternoon. the roads may be a bit slick in the afternoon and evening when you are coming home from work depending on how much slush wants to stay on the roads so be careful driving home later today. if anyone sees snow accumulation it should remain fairly low with maybe a couple isolated areas north of i-80 seeing around an inch or so. highs will stay just above freezing today in the mid 30s, and this evening lows should fall to around 33 here in the metro, so i'm not worried about icy roads. thursday still looks warm enough across most of iowa to see mainly rain showers, a few of which could come in the morning, but primarily falling through the afternoon. friday is going to be more of a wintry mix to light snow day lasting into saturday morning. temperatures are going to be falling dramatically saturday from the morning into sunday where the coldest air of the year is expected to slam home. we are going to stay very cold throughout the remainder of next week with only one or two snow chances. elias: also coming up on local five news midday.... did north korea set off a nuclear bomb? hear what that means for us here in the u-s. elias: and -- nextgen leaders calling on presidential candidates -- hear why they say a major focus should be on climate change. elias: then -- ahead of a very chilly week, the state fire marshal has a reminder you

11:08 am
yukiya amano, director general of the international atomic energy agency (iaea): the dprk's nuclear test, if confirmed, is in clear violation of un security council resolutions and is deeply regrettable. this would be the country's fourth time testing a nuclear weapon since 2006 - but the first time testing a thermo-nuclear weapon. the u-s immediately launched so-called "nuclear sniffer" planes to determine - whether north korea's claims are true... the results - could take months?but already many are skeptical... soundbite (english) john nilsson-wright, head of the asia programme at chatham house "the reported size of the detonation is relatively modest, comparable to the test that north korea carried out in 2013, which i think has led many experts to assume that this is in fact probably a much cruder device rather than the fully fledged hydrogen bomb." tag- north korea's ally china - among the

11:23 am
nat this morning? the newest face of louis vuitton's woman's line yes that's right - smith is stylin in ladies fashion. with this post on his instagram writing "thank you so much @louisvuitton and @nicolasghesquiere for the opportunity to impact this world." sot from fashion expert 161441 you are seeing an evolution, and we're also seeing fashion do what fashion loves to do which is to play with our expectations, to tug on our prejudices, and to surprise us. in a press release louis vuitton saying jaden "represents a generation that has assimilated the codes of true freedom... wearing a skirt comes as naturally to him as it would to a woman" the 17 year old is known for stretching fashion boundaries from rocking dress like outfits to dressing up as batman for the prom and his father, will smith, telling ellen degeneres how he and his wife jada support all their children's choices
11:24 am
ago it is sort of easier to flow with how people are naturally more than what our egos need them to be" jaden telling gq in june "i'm just expressing how i feel inside, which is really no particular way because everyday it changes how i feel about the world and myself" elias: jaden smith released his own clothing line called msfts (misfits) last year. elias/lam actress ann hathaway has confirmed that she is pregnant ... and she used social media to do it. rumors have swirled that the oscar-winner might be expecting a child. hathaway posted a picture of herself in a swimsuit on instagram. the photo shows an obvious baby bump. the image has racked up more than 270- thousand likes and thousands of comments. elias/lam coming up on local 5 news

local 5 news midday in hd. we are iowa" elias: good morning and thanks for joining us for local 5 news midday...i'm elias johnson. elias: developing this hour -- crews working to recover a body after a trench collapse. elias: : it happened at the construction it happened at the construction site of a housing development near 5th avenue and adventureland drive. crews were called to the scene around 8 a.m. after a trench collapsed on a construction worker. rescue efforts were moved to recovery efforts within the hour.
11:27 am
they become available. elias: another big story today...wide ranging reactions to president obama's executive actions on gun control... elias: many families impacted by some of the deadliest attacks in our country are sharing their thoughts about the president's new gun control plan. his executive orders will add hundreds of f-b-i and a-t-f agents, expand background checks and increase funding for mental health care. mary moloney has more: " --reporter pkg-as follows-- surrounded by the families and victims from mass shootings, president obama announced multiple executive actions on gun control. (president obama) every time i think about those kids it gets me mad, the tighter restrictions are welcome news for those impacted by gun violence. (sallie badger/ widow of gun shooting victim) everyone in the country needs to be aware and take some action. (sandy phillips/ mother of gun shooting victim)
11:28 am
courage to state his purposes and share tears with us and the nation was quite moving. during his speech, president obama specifically referred to two of his supporters: former congresswoman and shooting survivor gabby giffords... and her husband. (mark kelly/ husband of gabby giffords) it's really taking a good step in the right direction. the issue however remains divisive. (annette elliott/ gun show promoter) well i think the end game with a lot of democrats is to confiscate. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell questions the legality of the executive actions. (sen. mitch mcconnell/ (r) kentucky) whether the courts will allow what he's announced he's going to do. it will be interesting to see because my guess is it will be litigation. and several republican presidential candidates are calling this a massive overreach by the president. (jeb bush/ (r) presidential candidate) it's not going to solve any problems by having the so-called gun show loop hole be taken care of by executive order. (marco rubio/ (r) presidential candidate) when i'm elected president, on the first day, behind my desk, those orders are gone. mary moloney reporting. elias: here in iowa, one mother is commending the president for trying to press the executive order. kay folkers son was shot and killed with an illegal gun 15 years ago this feburary. she said the gun
11:29 am
shouldn't have been available to the criminals who did it. folkers said she's been waiting for executive action while watching the continuing nationwide violence. she believes the order will take a long time to be come a law, but commends president obama for trying. " he's trying, you know, but there needs to be so much more done. it's going to take a lot of time."" elias: kay says its not just mental illness or background checks alone that will fix this- other government issues will have to change too. elias: after a big comeback win over purdue saturday...the iowa hawkeyes took their home court last night... the team hosted nebraska, looking for a fifth straight win...which they did get. the 77 to 66 victory also moves iowa to three and oh in coference play this season. they take on michigan state tomorrow night.
11:30 am
college basketball, the iowa state cyclones will open their home conference play tonight... this will be their second big 12 matchup this season....after falling to oklahoma over the weekend. this evening they host texas tech in ames... this season the depth of the big 12 may be the best out of any conference in the country. " top to bottom it's extremely tough so you gotta battle hard every night and i feel like we did that at oklahoma. there's a couple of things you tweak here and there and maybe you come out with a win. so you can't hold your head too long. you need to get ready because tech is coming in with a great record and a pretty great team!
