that are up for parts of texas. this next disturbance will create severe weather today aalong the gulf -- along the gulf coast state. temperatures rise through the 20s and the 30s by late morning. the clouds will increase, around 40 this afternoon, and then it's late afternoon that you notice areas of snow advancing across connecticut. that snow advances northward during the evening hours. i think most of the evening commute will be okay. you get south of the mass pike and there will be areas of snow. notice it does come down at a good clip too. but temperatures are about the freezing mark and the ground so mild as of late we shouldn't have a huge issue in terms of a ton of snow sticking on the roads. 32 worcester. by the mid to late evenings athat snow -- as that snow comes in, we'll get slick spots. iejs -- 9:30, 11:00, starting to see it. by midnight in the city of

the rest through the south look like speed limit runs. the race for the white house has already seen its share of controversies. >> and now kasich is facing a backlash, our jon keller has more. >> reporter: good morning. so you think it's easy being a better think again. yesterday, kasich was talking to voters about the grassroots support he got when he first ran for office in the late 70s and he said quote, we just got an army of people and many women who left their kitchens to go out and go door to door to put signs for me. within minutes, a female supporter stood up and supported him, she said i'll support you but i won't come out of the kitchen, and it wasn't until many were piling on, promming him to get relief. everybody's just got to relax, he said.
in this campaign cycle, no one seems about to relax, especially women. did you see the video that made the rounds yesterday of the 106-year-old african american woman who danced for joy upon meeting president and mrs. obama? she never thought she'd see a president that looked like her. that's how women feel about the fact we've never had a female president. and while hillary clinton is hardly supported by all women, i can assure you there are plenty of female voters still smarting over her loss to obama eight years ago and determined to see that the glass ceiling in the white house gets shattered this time around. it's not just human nature to want to resent social barriers to your race, religion, or creed. it's what being an american is all about, the notion that those kinds of restrictions aren't tolerated. so if kasich feels unfairly maligned today, hey, sorry,
