6:05 am

6:12 am
time 7:42. do you see red light there west end avenue likely to be a deadened at black horse pike, by and towards end of the show final her for sure. >> that is for sure. >> this comes up we will see that better. 6:12. >> primary day in new hampshire. voters in the state of cast their ballots, of course. >> and nine people cast their vote just at 12:01 this morning. we have results in. but bob, as they say on cnn, it is just too early to call it. >> too early to call for a snow day because i know kids are probably not excited looking out window this morning. no snow yet but it is on the way as we head for a ride heading down into wilmington. let get down to philly international, if you are getting ready to travel out of town we will check with the tote board. sue has the forecast, all that when we come right back.

6:16 am
primary day in new hampshire, granite state. some voters in that state of cast their ballots. it is a fun tradition, dixville notch is one of three community in the state, they are allowed to hold midnight votes and they all came out all nine of them in di xville notch. john kasich is winning there with three votes, donald trump had two votes. on the democratic side, vermont senator bernie sanders swept all four votes. hillary clinton didn't get any. it the is four to nothing so far. and they will get today and into tonight, there is a cliche, lot of eyes will be on new hampshire in the first in the nation primary. it is a tradition that dates back a hundred year in dixville knocks, is that where you are, doug, i doubt it. hi there, doug. >> reporter: i'm not sure if you can get a live shot out of dixville notch. it is pretty remote.
6:17 am
we are in manchester. it will be a busy day all over the state. those polls opened very early this morning but it will go all the way to seven to 8:00 o'clock depending on the precinct and we will start to get results n but a lot is riding on this interesting you noted that bernie sanders got a shut out there in dixville notch, sorry, it is kind of cold here. he is certainly favorite to win, statewide, the question is how strong a showing will hillary clinton have even if she comes in second. the as always, the first votes were cast just after midnight in tiny dixville notch where anticipation was high even if the steaks were low. just nine votes. g.o.p. winner by one, john kasich, but all four democrats went for bernie sanders. take from that in what you may in a state where so many voters are leaving their options opened. >> rubio or trump. we are still undecided. >> it is just now that we are starting to look at the candidates.
6:18 am
>> phone calls, five or six every night, i feel sorry for my post men because he is getting all of the mailers too. >> reporter: men what is especially the last minute there are a ton of undecided voters here. according to the monmouth university poll only 60 percent of likely democrat he can voters in new hampshire are, decided. only committed to a candidate. the it drops to 50 percent for republicans. the steaks could not be higher for 29 front runners, bernie sanders can't win here it is not sure where he can win. if donald trump doesn't deliver after being heavily favored he is in trouble. >> there is question of the mechanics of the turnout game on election day. truth is motivation is always the best thing that gets people in their cars, on a snowstorm like we will have and gets them to the polling spots. >> reporter: beyond motivation truth is some of the people showing up at these final events are undecided and we mean undecided. >> it is still a big toss up for me right now.
6:19 am
it could go to hillary clinton, it could go bernie, it could rubio, it could go kasich, it could go bush. >> reporter: welshing we will see how this all plays out in the the course of the day. there will be some attrition after these results come in. some republicans that no doubt decide to drop out. there was a report yesterday, mike from political that hillary clinton's campaign will go through a big staff shake up. they are denying that. they are brace forgo a loss here in new hampshire. >> last guy you interviewed, he might say doug luzader has a possibility he is all over the map that guy. >> reporter: you talk bun decided if you don't know what party you support, that is undecided. >> in new hampshire you can vote as a democrat and vote republican, and independents can vote for anybody. >> reporter: it is pretty wide open. so anything can happen. these things, it all depend on turnout. they are expecting a massive turnout, something north of 60 e
6:20 am
historic. >> and they can handle the snow up there, for sure they will get some snow up there. latest poll out there said trump still way ahead but rubio has vaulted in to second place with ted cruz third. doug, we will see you later in the 7:00 o'clock hour. best way to watch all this is to wait until it is all done and tune into the 10:00 o'clock news, or you can check all day long at fox >> could there been soon be another big political name thrown in the race for the white house. former new york city mayor michael bloomberg is exploring a run for president in the middle of the unpredictable election season. he said he was looking at all of the options. new york times reported last month that his team was investigating the possibility of running as an inn. if he choose toes run bloomberg would have to put his name on ballots beginning in march. sue? >> yeah, we are keeping a clothes eye on radar because if there is one thing about this storm that we can say
6:21 am
that will be consistent, it is change. the it will be changing all day long, and you can see now there is snow spread nothing to new castle county, dave kinchen should be seeing that snow soon and eventually moving northward it will hit delaware county and philadelphia for light accumulations but further south you go you will see some rain. pockets of heavy rain around georgetown delaware, here along the jersey shore we are seeing light snow flakes falling as far north as atlantic city and gallon waste township. gala way township. the as we look at future cast, it is on, off, rain mixed in with snow, it is on, it is off, it looks like it will be on throughout the evening rush, throughout the night and into the early hours of tomorrow, and before we are finally pushing this thing out of here maybe seven or 8:00 o'clock this is morning on wednesday but it is long in duration but just not a lot of snow depending where you are. this one little will pocket here, three to 6 inches, possible but two to 4 inches is the average we are calling
6:22 am
for just about every where else. at times we will see, above freezing which is 36 degrees, tomorrow, snow in the morning, clouds the rest of the day, 37 g weather headlines, cold, cold, cold, all the way through valentines day and even into president day, possibility main of some snow on presidents day itself but you may wake up in the morning on sunday, bob kelly, if you venture outside to 15 below zero on sunday. >> let me get my valentines flannel pajamas out. good morning. 6:22. pyramid club lighting it up in downtown philadelphia all of the road are wet the but with the temperatures hovering right around 32, what you don't see is what will get you in the most trouble, some on and off ramps where temperatures are hovering around that freezing mark, if they have not been treated there is potential for slippery spots. i-95 backing down from cottman down through girard avenue. the as sue mentioned this will
6:23 am
change. road conditions will change as we move through the morning as we fly south on i-95, past wilmington. nothing yet, we will check in on the campus of the university of delaware, u dell hope the kids did their homework last night the because classes will be out there. big question is what will happen later on today? i know my kids will go home from school. will we get that even if call at noon time or 1:00 o'clock? drop them off at mike's house on the way home. eastbound on the schuylkill in, problems yet, south on i-95 just under 20 minutes to make the trip, mike and alex back over to you. quick look at radar. if you can the not be near a tv throughout the day you no he what to do get that weather app. >> that is right our fox 29 weather app, down load it from the google or apple store. >> it has radar on it. >> lottery numbers.
