we are starting to increase the clouds off to the south and west with precipitation in portions of nebraska and kansas. a quiet and mild afternoon with more clouds around 6:00 p.m. by 10:00, a wintry mix and snow. if we look at the snow trend, most of this false tomorrow morning, midnight has a 60% chance. the heaviest snow at 4:00 a.m., when most of us will see it, especially in central iowa. by the afternoon, snow chances start to deteriorate a little bit. the latest timing and totals heading our way, coming up. mollie: police say weather was to blame for a 15 car pile up during this morning's commute. it happened just before 7:30 on eastbound i-235 at the easton exit. officials say it appears that
freezing fog caused the slick conditions. it took crews nearly 2 hours to clear the roadway. police say 1 person suffered minor injuries but witnesses on the scene tell us that an additional 2 people went to the hospital on their own to be checked out as a precaution. the time for campaigning in iowa is almost over, and tonight at 7:00, iowans will kick off the presidential nominating process. marlie hall begins our commitment 2016 coverage from right here in des moines. >> one last day. marlie: it was an early wake-up call for volunteers on caucus day. even the normally confident republican front-runner donald trump is anxious. >> well you have to be a little bit nervous. you know i like to win and i want to win for the country, i don't want to win for myself. this is actually my first election night. marlie: marco rubio stopped at a des moines cracker barrel with his kids this morning. he's polling in third place. >> well we'll be stumping hard for you tonight. >> thank you very much. marlie: ted cruz is counting on an army of supporters to pull
>> the strength of this campaign is over 12,000 volunteers here in the state of iowa. marlie: republican party officials here say they expect a record turnout tonight and that may bode well for donald trump. >> if it's big on the republican side, that means these first time voters that like donald trump have come out and turned out to caucus. >> bernie. marlie: democrat bernie sanders is also counting on first time voters. >> we need tens of millions of people to stand up and say loudly and clearly, enough is enough. marlie: sanders and hillary clinton are in a virtual tie. >> i'm a little bit scarred up but i'm still standing and i think that kind of experience will really do me well in this campaign. marlie: the threat of a winter storm could impact voter turnout tonight. , marlie hall, cbs news, des moines. mollie: also doing a bit of
expecting a surprise. >> we're sort of tired of everything being pre-determined by polling. everything's been circled around polling, more than any other season i've ever seen in presidential politics because there's so many people making a to look at the polls.' but the wrong. let's see what the vote looks like. we think we're going to surprise a lot of people. mollie: and on the democratic side, tonight's winner could ultimately be decided by former o'malley. right now, he's running a distant third to senator bernie sanders and hillary clinton. but due to the uniqueness of the caucus process, o'malley is a potential kingmaker. that's because in places where he falls short of the 15% needed to be viable, his supporters will be asked to pick their second choice which could tip the balance for sanders or clinton. >> some of your supporters, governor, are viewed as the most important commodity in iowa right now. >> because of their discerning judgment in candidates.
some precincts do you urge them , to follow their own instincts? or should they go one way or another? >> i urge them to hold strong and fight for viability. that's what i encourage people to do. mollie: tom henderson is the polk county democratic chair and o'malley supporter. he says one of the biggest mysteries about the sanders clinton battle is where o'malley's supporters will go. presidential hopefuls aren't the only ones hitting the streets urging iowans to get out and caucus. iowa senator joni ernst says she expects a record turnout for republicans. ernst has chosen not to endorse a particular candidate, but says she has her eyes on several potential nominees. the senator also says iowa is a great fit for first in the nation status. >> whether it's your manufacturing base, whether it's agriculture, technology, banking and finance, you name it we have it here in iowa. so we are when you look at industry very represented of many different states across the nation. mollie: senator ernst says she has a lot of friends in the race
of candidates for iowan's to choose from. as it all comes to a head tonight, you can trust us for the best coverage of the caucuses. we will be live starting at 6:30, and will stay on the air until the final results are in. we will also have crews at all the big campaign watch parties as well as inside democratic and republican caucuses. in national headlines today, two virginia tech students are in custody in connection with the death of a 13-year-old girl who disappeared last week. nicole lovell's body was found more than 50 miles from her home and the university campus. jan crawford reports from the jail in christiansburg, virginia where the students are expected to be arraigned today. jan: police discovered 13-year-old nicole lovell's body on the side of a north carolina road. authorities believe virginia tech freshman david eisenhauer abducted and murdered the girl. another student, 19-year-old natalie keepers has been charged with helping eisenhauer get rid of lovell's body. >> eisenhauer and nicole were acquainted prior to her disappearance.

and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good
job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our hearts. and that journey begins here in iowa. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask you to join with us at the caucuses on monday night.
one of the areas that i've been particularly interested in is the area of children. all of us have a responsibility, to ourselves, to our children,
to each other. we intend to be sure that everybody in this room and every child in this state is somebody. no matter where they're born, no matter to whom they are born. our children's future is shaped both by the values of their parents and the policies of their nation. it's time to protect the next generation,
with possibility and hope, open up the doors so that every child has a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. i've spent my life fighting for children, families and our country, and i'm not stopping now. (crowd cheers) i'm hillary clinton, and i have always approved this message. mollie: a reminder you can trust kcci for the best coverage of tonight's caucuses. google -- we

frank: six to 12 inches the northwest of the metro. a band cuts right through pull county just southeast of that, a southeast this all starts late tonigh they're one of the wall street banks that triggered the financial meltdown -- goldman sachs. just settled with authorities for their part in the crisis that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does
wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall street because it's rigged by wall street. and that's the problem. as long as washington is bought and paid for, we can't build an economy that works for people.
do you think when you are president
you'll be paid as much as if you were a man-male... this is one of the jobs where they have to pay you the same. but there are so many examples where that doesn't happen. i'm going to do everything i can to make sure every woman in every job gets paid the same... ...as the men who are doing that job. i'm hillary clinton
