6:00 am
this weekend starterly. >> rochelle: we are on a roll. >> crysty: one thing that is not on a roll is the temperatures, they are gone. >> rochelle: we are facing a change from 24 hours ago with warmer temperatures. you will face wind, grab a jacket, get the little ones bundled up, you might want to bundle yourself up. here is jonathan kennedy with more to expect. good morning. >> jonathan: i have it in graphical form. temperatures are much cooper, we were seeing a little rain across the northern half of the area, saw a few showers trying to clip the columbia area but we didn't see any actual reports of rain falling. especially this far south we are not seeing the brunt of the impact and highest intensity of moisture and lift, so rain hasn't been an issue even though you will see it across the area,
6:01 am
well off, heading off toward the grand strand toward myrtle beach. nothing to worry about in rain fall, cloud cover moving out. we have seen a lot of rain over the last 48 hours. manning 6.31 inches, king street toward moncks corner, closer to the coast e-7 to 8 irons, obviously the bull's eye. we are looking at a much drier set up and cooler set up this morning. 43 in downtown. 43 lexington. 35 in saluda, wagner 36. newberry 37. the cool air sliding in from the north-northwest, that's where you our wind are coming from. it's been windy for us. right now 5 to 10 locally in the downtown area, st. matthews breezy at 20 miles a hour, gusts 30 miles a hour in a few places, it's been a windy morning,
6:02 am
over from the warm moisture we saw all week to more of a february-like pattern of very dry and cool air. i don't think we will get to freezing but temperatures likely in the 30s for everybody as you are heading out the door this morning. 24-hour temperature change talking how much cooler it is, compared to thursday morning. looking at at radar we are starting to see clear air to the west coming our way. system moves through north carolina. the stuff in south carolina not having a lot of impact on the southern end of it, the main energy source is way up to the north. don't expect to see rain or precipitation for most areas, especially after the next hour or so, it will be gone for everybody here locally. we will look for a fry forecast, cooler, temperatures for some spots maybe not even getting out of the 40s, we will be stuck
6:03 am
for us low 50s, even by february standards and compared to what we were seeing earlier in the week, we went from consistent 70 degree temperatures last week end into this week and now it's certainly nice shock to the system where we will be just in the 50s something and to think we were celebrating jonathan on this national weather person day. >> rochelle: he's bearer of bad news with the cold weather. >> jonathan: you made the plans yesterday when it was still warm so you can't changee it. >> rococlle: and it friday, can't go wrong. >> jonathan: it's friday, you are welcome. >> crysty: no, thank you. crysty: we want to give you a quick traffic update as you head out and about this morning. >> rochelle: still good news, no trouble spots to report in or around the capital city but we're keeping our eyes on the road and if anything changes we

6:06 am
hampshire democratic voters. sanders stands at 61% and clinton at 30%. the democratic presidential hopefuls are coming off their first-one-on-one debate in new hampshire. clinton accused sanders of attacks by insinuation after he referenced the millions of dollars raised by an outside political group supporting clinton's campaign. the two also debated the economy and health care and more during the debate. rochelle: chelesea clinton is hoping to grow her mom's lead in the polls here in south carolina. she'll be campaigning in the upstate for hillary clinton tomorrow with stops in rock hill, spartanburg and clemson university. rochelle: the richland two school board wants to hear from students about the october incident involving then-school resource officer ben fields and a female student. >> crysty: the school board is proposing a student advisory council. the council would be made up of student representatives from

winds, strong enough to leave its mark. but despite the clean up residents say, they're still counting their blessings. >> the lord took care of everybody, and everybody was safe and we can put buildings back but people are a little more precious than that. >> rochelle: the storm damaged a hay shed, ripped off the roof of several buildings and damaged several cars. tracy's logging hopes to have all the repairs completed in six to eight weeks. i think he pegged it exactly right. you can replace things, you can't replace people. >> crysty: amen to that. still to come, it's national weather person day. >> rochelle: and a great one, time to thank or meteorologist jonathan kennedy. >> jonathan: it should be a cool and breezy start to your friday, we'll see lots of sunshine but a little cooler for us.

6:15 am
that comes along with the super bowl 50. >> reporter: hard to believe. the super bowl is s most here. as an event, forbes says the super bowl is the most valuable sports event in the world. for super bowl 50, the nfl is expected to make at least $620 million. if you want to go to the big game, it's gonna cost you. seat-geek predicts this super bowl to be the most expensive ever on resale ticket sites. the lowest price on seat geek right now runs in the $3500 range. but a listing on the 50-yard line costs as much as a new car -- $16,600. you're going to have to pay up when you look for hotels in the area -- that is if you can get a room. some places jacked up the prices six times the normal rate. companies wanting to cash in will also have to pay a pretty penny. a 30-second commercial during the game costs $5 million. cbs, the network carrying the game, expects to make $350 million just from ads alone. some of the big spenders -- anheuser-busch. >> hello.
6:16 am
and coke. one group that won't get paid? coldplay. but don't cry for the super bowl half-time performer. it's still good for business. for last year's performer, katy perry, that free gig turned into a 12-minute commercial. as you watch this game -- or just the commercials -- try not to think about the green. for consumer watch, i'm mary moloney. >> rochelle: at those prices it's hard not to think about the green. >> crysty: it is. >> rochelle: for a ticket? >> crysty: a lot of people tune in not for the football but for

6:18 am
main and gervais. >> crysty: your time is 6:55. time for football. but it isn't for every one. so "animal planet" is offering an adorable alternative to sunday's big game. >> rochelle: that's right. the puppy bowl is back and it's furier than ever. the adoption extravaganza filled "team ruff" and "team fluff" to raise awareness about animals in need of a loving home. and if you'd like to catch both bowls, you're in luck. the adoption extravaganza runs from 3:00 to 5:00 on animal planet.
6:19 am
>> crysty: you can't go wrong with cute puppies, you can't lose. i end joy the puppy bowl, enjoy it more than the super bowl. crysty: still to come, if the super bowl isn't already sweet enough -- >> rochelle: don't worry, we've got some more treats coming our
