>> pick 3 numbers, 7, 1, new research shows parents are missing a key opportunity to prepare their kids for the first day of school and it starts at birth. according to a survey released by the research firm, ugov, not enough parents are reading to their kids for the recommended time each day. joining us to tell us about this study and the president of read aloud 15 minutes, doctor john huston at the cincinnati children's hospital. thank you so much for being with us today. >> good morning. >> what are the key findings and takeaways from this survey? >> i think the first thing is that we learned that about 60% of parents really know that they should begin reading to their children at birth, for 15
7:40 am
but, the important thing is that so many of them don't. what the campaign is trying to do is help them understand the urgency of reading aloud beginning at birth for 15 minutes. the impact it has on a child's brain and how it prepares them for kindergarten. >> what are the tips for parents on best practices for reading aloud to their kids? >> i think one of the simplest is to make it fun. and also, to really try to get the child engaged on the process as much as possible. babies are going to be more interested in june on the book and holding it but as they get older, like to turn pages, asking questions and letting them help choose the story. the more you can get children involved in the process, the better. >> what do you think about tablets or tech devices? can they help or do they hurt in the long run when it comes
7:41 am
>> that is a common question. really, this secret sauce to early brain development and benefits of reading aloud comes down to the parent-child interaction. as long as the material in the device, whether it is a story or pictures on the phone for example, as long as the parent and child are talking about what they are seeing and asking lots of questions and relating to one another, it is probably fine. what is a problem is when the device is turned over to the child and the engagement goes away which can lead to some problems. >> march is read aloud a month. how can parents get involved and how early should they start reading to kids? >> it is really at birth. that first minute where a child's brain is just maturing so quickly, although it might not seem that anything is happening. a lot is happening behind the
7:42 am
begin reading immediately, and begin intonation and sounds, because the child really is forming lots of brain connections. get involved, readaloud.org, on the web, we have day care centers or preschools, we have some tips and reading diaries for older children. and we will have the results of the survey. for the people in your region. we do have some data they might be interested in. >> doctor candace kendall and doctor john hutton, thank you for being with us to learn more about read aloud 15 minutes . just go to readaloud.org.
7:43 am
7:44 am
7:45 am
spectacular event. i can almost smell the fresh mountain air. >> doesn't it look beautiful? their temperatures have been warm lately, too. and, there is the profile of grandfather mountain. >> hello, grandfather. >> how beautiful.
7:46 am
it takes a surprising amount of action for spring to come into the mountains. sometimes it is not until may until the trees start to leaf out. hours starts pretty early, there are some bradford pears trying to leaf out. >> the higher elevations takes some time. >> it takes a long time up erbuit kea nice and cool for the summer. we are in the middle of this long, warm spell. let's take a look at statistics related to that. when is the last time we ended up with temperatures like this? let's take a look at our graphics. starting off, when was the last 80 degree or higher day that we saw in raleigh? that was back on october 9. that's pretty typical. we tend to be wrapping up our 80 degree days in october. but the last 80 plus degree day in fayetteville was christmas day. that's highly unusual. remember that warm december we
7:47 am
we rounded out the month with warm temperatures. we had a four day stretch in december from the 24th through the 27th with temperatures at 70 or higher in the triangle area. we are going to see a longer stretch than that now, this is not unusual to have days in the 70s or even close to 80 degrees in march, it's just unusual for us to have such a long string of them. we have had pretty whether to go along with it, too. lots of sunshine. our temperature at the airport is 51. beautiful in downtown durham. 48 is the dewpoint but we still have not had enough breeze to keep the fog from developing. 55 roxboro, 51 greensboro, we hang on to mild temperatures over the weekend with highs in the 70s but a front trumps in on us giving us a better chance for rain. 30% chance saturday, 50% chance
7:48 am
keep that in mind when making plans. as we get closer to the weekend we may have to fine-tune that. we continue to have warm temperatures because of the way this front to the west is going to ask. instead of this front picking up eastward and bringing in cool air the tale of this front will stay put to the west and the top end of the front will bend over, if you will. that is going to help bring us a boundary for some showers starting friday. but we don't ever get into the cooler sector of the storm. watch these temperatures on our contours. we stay in the warm sector of this system through friday, saturday and sunday. well into next week. so does a huge section of the country. the warmest from raleigh back toward texas. looking at mild conditions near the canadian border near wednesday, thursday and friday, finally toward the end of next week we start to see some of that colder air sinking southward. enjoy the pretty weather.
7:49 am
two weeks ago today we had three tornadoes touched down in north carolina so we do have that statewide tornado drill starting at 9:30 this morning lasting for a few minutes. it's a good time to practice. school kids will practice that this morning. it's a good time to practice at your business and when you get home talk to your family about your safe spot, in the basement or first-floor room with no windows. brian, look at that extended period with temperatures in the 70s. and it is the middle of march. >> it's a gift. good news out of garner, accident we have been following on 40 westbound in the median at business 70 has cleared up. let's take a look at the camera. traffic is still a little busy through there and likely will remain busy for a little longer. 15 minutes to make the trip from 42 up to the belt line split. with that accident can't we should be steady improvement as
