six grams of sugar? that's really good. excellent, delicious... and yummy! honey bunches of oats. tasty! yummy! just a few minutes before the start of the "today" show at 8:00. let's check in with lester holt and erica hill. >> good morning to you. just ahead on a sunday morning, we're talking about this extreme weather. residents in the buffalo, new york, area now bracing for potentially heavy flooding as warmer temperatures melt those
mountains of snow. down south, severe storms could even bring tornados in the forecast today. dylan is on top of all of that for us. then watching and waiting. going live to ferguson, missouri. a grand jury could be just a day away from deciding whether a police officer should be indicted for the fatal shooting of a young man there. plus, an incredible story of survival. a 4-year-old boy falls hundreds of feet down a cliff and survives. this morning, his parents will tell us how he's doing. kristen chenoweth stops by to talk about her new album and will belt out a tune for us. sandra lee is in the kitchen with some ideas on how to spice up your thanksgiving meal when we get started on a sunday morning. and good luck to all the marathoners in philly today. >> absolutely. you know, erica, having run the new york marathon not too long ago, they've got some good weather, so that's the good news. >> they have great weather. yes. >> all right, thank you, guys. we'll see you at 8:00. now we're going to check in with the folks at "meet the
press." presidential power and the impact on the 2016 election. that's what they're going to be talking about a little bit later on "meet the press." joining us now for a preview is moderator chuck todd. good morning, chuck. >> good morning, rosemary. >> this week, president obama bypassed congress and took action himself on immigration. so talk to us about what's next. will congress get things done themselves, or has the executive order set the stage for more gridlock? >> well, i think that's the question here. republicans are united in condemning thousand president went about trying to enact this policy. but they're not united on how to respond. they could easily pass a bill, as the president himself has said. but they have yet to unify around any bill, maybe even one that's just border security first in the house side of things. of course, a senate bill that sits out there. but the house republicans haven't done anything. and that i think has prevented them from having higher ground on this issue here. and the base of the party would like to see some retribution against the president, but it's
unclear how. now, i do think the president's order is beginning to get challenged in the courts. we're already hearing from the states of texas and oklahoma that they could file suit, claiming that what the president is doing is putting an undue burden on social service on the state without the consent of the legislative branch. that's where this could get into some thorny legal issues. the question is does that lawsuit get filed and is that enough for the republican leadership in congress to tell its conservative members hey, let the lawsuit work its will. let's focus on other issues. >> chuck, i also want to talk to you about what's happening in ferguson, missouri. of course, we're awaiting a grand jury decision there about whether they'll indict police officer darren wilson. how has this case changed the dialogue of race relations in this country? >> well, i don't know if it's changed the dialogue at all. i don't know if there's been much of a dialogue. i think the way we're going to tackle this issue is the way law enforcement officials are
responding to it. to declare a preemptive state of emergency before anything has happened. putting out warnings to law enforcement communities all around the country. i think that there is some question about whether this is a very pessimistic preemptive action here, and the question is, is it almost rooting for -- not quite rooting for, but almost being pessimistic and saying oh, jeez, we expect some sort of violent reaction to whatever happens, rather than maybe having the dialogue itself first, or actually waiting to see what happens before reacting, and if you have the state of emergency in advance, does it almost say you know what, we expect some violence, we're prepared for it. >> chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." thank you for your insight. >> you got it. >> later this morning, chuck will moderate the immigration debate with his guests. it comes your way this morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. we'll be right back.
we were just talking about it, the marathoners in philadelphia have it pretty good today. you were right, the new york marathon, all that wind. >> oh, it was terrible. it was cold and so windy. today we have it so much better. we're looking at light winds. looking at temperatures not bad. and we're looking at some cloud conditions. the sun's not going to be beating down on them. 54 degrees. rain overnight. could be heavy at times. then that big weather headline. 72 degrees tomorrow. >> we'll get ready for it.
