minute, but first let's take a look at weather with chief meteologist brad edwards. brad we're not out of the woods yet with the snow are we? brad/wx center weather adlib: our latest winter storm is winding down for many areas, but there is still snow falling in nw iowa and more is expected for central iowa later this evening. the worst of this storm is being felt in northwest and northern iowa where 6-10" of snow has fallen and winds are causing blowing and drifting of the snow. road conditions are terrible in these areas and travel is discouraged. meanwhile, the metro is seeing improving conditions after about 2-3" of snowfall this morning thanks to drier weather and milder temperatures in look for some snow to northern iowa this afternoon while the southern half of the state stays mainly dry until this evening. that is when some wrap- around rain/snow showers will develop the metro. there could be another inch accumulation tonight with these snow showers. they may also cause some slick weather will come our then milder the weekend! next much colder. jack:

off from the campaign trail. ted cruz apologized to him today for mistakenly telling people carson was dropping out of the race. stephanie/ram: meanwhile, on the democratic side the final results were not so clearly decided. local 5 chief political correspondent amanda krenz has more on the close race between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, as they both move onto new hampshire. amanda? amanda/bam: that's right stephanie. the fight for first place in iowa isn't over. the iowa democratic party says it was a historically close race. the bernie sanders campaign has heard there may have been some discrepencies with what happened at precincts and the results that were reported... so they're going to investigate, and hopefully sit down with the iowa democratic party to figure it all out. "rania 34:38 we have very strong supporters who are very passionate and have worked so hard, when you're talking about such a tight race and there are these questions that are unanswered you want those things to be rectified." andy 25:29 when you have that you hav eto make sure you verify the results and this

of the precincts accounted for, we've verified the results, we have our final results out. amanda one of the biggest concerns remains over coin flips. the iowa democratic party is away of 6 coin flips that happened to win the final delegate from a precinct. they say bernie sanders won five of them. amanda:bam:: and they say there are likely others that happened around the state that they don't know about. the reason being - some precincts reported results by phone - so they used a touch tone system that doesn't allow them to say if there was a coin flip... as opposed to precincts that reported with an app where precinct chairs had the option to report a coin flip if it happened. live in the studio, amanda krenz,

victory? local 5's digital news editor lucas casey is here with us now to break down the numbers. lucas? lucas: between the hours of 2:30 and about 10:00 a.m. tuesday morning, it felt like the winner of the iowa democratic caucuses would come down to the winner in the final, outstanding precinct, the elusive des moines numer 42. but, when we look deeper, that final precinct was only worth about 2 and a quarter statewide delegate equivalents, not enough to swing the race for sanders. so let's look across the state, and see how clinton did pull off this hairline victory, first by looking at the most populous, and therefore valuable states by delegate cont: woodbury, potawatamie, dallas, madison, polk, blackhawk, linn, johnson, scott, and dubuque. clinton only won four of these ten counties, and sanders had wider margins in several. what it came down to, oddly enough for clinton, she took a total of 60 iowa counties in all, including a vast majority of rurual areas, places much less kind to when she faced barack obama in 2008. in the digital media center, lucas casey, local 5 news, we are iowa. jack:

after the 1-3 start to the big 12 season iowa state had-- it's interesting to look back and think there was panic amongst some in cyclone nation. but since then they've reeled off four straight conference wins with a chance at a fifth tonight against west virginia. in that span they've taken down number one oklahoma and number kansas. this will wrap up a 5 game stretch that has pitted i-s-u against four top 15 opponents. the cyclones have shown a new spark since steve prohm has
6:18 pm
coach. prohm is doing prohm-- and that means stronger defense and smarter possessions. tonight they'll have to add toughness to that mix as they take on the 14th ranked mountaineers. "the biggest thing, you can't have a lot of ball turnovers. but as much as the press is important. they kill you on the glass. we've gotta get stops and we have to rebound. they rebound almost 50 percent of their misses. which is incredible. that's his m-o that's what makes his teams good. their toughness and competitive drive and their will. i just know it's going to be a tough matchup every time we lace up against west virginia and the rough fouls that they do that's just how they play. you can't get mad at them that's just what they know so that's what we go to expect when we play those guys. " a win for the cyclones tonight would move them to 6-3 and make it a 4 way tie for second place in the conference standings. jon: as for the iowa hawkeyes-- they just keep on rolling. a minor road bump against maryland is the only point where we've them slip up. but outside of
