>> you definitely are beautiful, okay? >> america gets ready for some football today, friday, february 5, 2016. and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. >>. [ cheers and applause ] good morning everyone, welcome to today on a friday morning. yesterday we were standing out there with no coats. >> but al roker said change was coming. >> so if this were a football play, take the snap, hand the ball to al. >> thanks so much, guys. we told you if this system makes its way closer, in fact, we would see snow -- more snowmaking its way along the eastern sea board. portsmouth, new hampshire, new haven, connecticut, here in new york city we've got snow up and down the east coast. here's what it looks like on the radar from portland all the way down to washington, d.c., even raleigh looking at snow.
7:02 am
we're going to watch this now as this system develops. it will be pushing in a lot of heavy, wet snow so power lines could come down, tree branches coming down. 41 million people under some winter storm warning or advisory. here's how we track it. 7:00 a.m. from norfolk to boston we have snow. the snow falling at rates of one to two inches per hour. plus it becomes windy and with that heavy wet snow we could be looking at outages. around noon from portland, boston, warwick, islip, new york city just on the western edge of this system and then as we move into the afternoon hours it's a quick mover. then it pushes its way off. as far as accumulations, heavy stuff along eastern maine. also as you get into eastern massachusetts. boston, you could be looking at upwards of 6 to 9 inches of snow. providence, rhode island, 6-9, new york city 3-5 inches. but as we say, the good news, is it's a quick mover. it will get out of here fast but
7:03 am
we are watching something that comes in early next week which may have a big impact along the east coast as well. >> we'll keep us posted -- you will on that, thank you, al. let's talk politics. the presidential race. hillary clinton and bernie sanders faced off in their most contentious debate yesterday. clinton accusing sanders of running a "artful smear" against her. and we have intriguing new poll numbers on the republican side to tell us about. nbc's andrea mitchell was there. tell us about the debate. >> good morning, savannah. with only four days to go until new hampshire votes and on the democratic side, bernie sanders leading hillary clinton by 20 points, the two rivals faced off in that heated debate. the stakes high for both sides. [ boos ] >> let's talk about the issues. let's talk about the issues that divide us. >> clinton and bernie sanders in their most combative debate yet. >> secretary clinton does represent the establishment. i represent, i hope, ordinary americans. >> the debate quickly exploded
7:04 am
in a fiery clash over her ties to wall street. hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees and his demands for campaign finance reform. >> enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. i think it's time to tend very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out. >> oh, come on. >> and let's talk about -- let's talk about the issues. >> what we need to do is to stand up to the big-money interests and the campaign contributors. >> reporter: under scrutiny for paid speeches to goldman sachs and dozens of other groups, clinton ducked a question about whether she'd make those speech transcripts public. >> in full disclosure, would you release all of them? >>ly look into it, i don't know the status but i will look into it. >> reporter: they fought over who is a liberal. >> there's nothing wrong with being moderate but you can't be
7:05 am
a moderate and a progressive. >> i like to get things done. cherry picks doesn't help. >> reporter: sanders talked about how he could lead the democratic party if elected. >> i am running the party as a democrat. i want to see major changes in the democratic party. >> reporter: clinton was pressed over the controversy surrounding her private e-mail. >> i think the american people will know it's an absurdity. >> i will not politicize it. >> reporter: despite calls to review the razor-thin caucus result, sanders shrugged off her loss. >> you have 22, i have 20, we need 2,500 to win the nomination. [ laughter ] this is not the biggest deal in the world. >> reporter: in new hampshire, sanders is even leading hillary clinton among women and especially a huge lead among younger women. today she is campaigning with women governors and senators but she has not figured out how to inspire younger women flocking
7:06 am
to bernie sanders. matt and savannah? >> andrea mitchell on the trail for us. thank you. meanwhile, republicans face off in their own debate tomorrow night and we have a new poll on that race in new hampshire. rubio now in second place closing in on donald trump. nbc's hallie jackson has that part of the story covered. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. as marco rubio moves up, it's ted cruz slipping to third and today as he looks ahead to the primary, he's dealing with fallouts from earlier this week at the iowa caucuses. this morning, ted cruz is playing defense, dogged by claims of dirty politics as breitbart news publishes these voice mails. voice mails. claims of dirty politics, as these voicemails were published. >> the phone calls allegedly made by cruz staffers the night of the iowa caucuses, implying ben carson was dropping out. nbc news has not independently verified these specific calls,
7:07 am
though we have confirmed similar ones were made. >> please inform any carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for ted cruz. >> reporter: cruz insisting his staff shared an accurate story that he was heading home after the caucuses. >> i understand political opponents have been trying to make hay and misconstrue things. when you win in iowa, your opponents want to tear you down. i opponents like trump laughing off what cruz calls it trumper tantrum. >> i don't have tantrums. >> reporter: looking ahead to new hampshire. >> i'd love to win because i like to win. my life is about winning. >> reporter: trump still on top in our new poll with marco rubio rising in that state. >> we're working hard and we feel good about the progress we've made in iowa, the progress we're making here now and i know about politics, when everyone is attacking you, you must be doing something right. >> reporter: facing fire from establishment rivals like jeb bush.
7:08 am
>> mom, my krod size crowd size usually this large. i wonder why. >> reporter: he's getting support from barbara, on the trail for the first time since his son announced his candidacy. >> he's decent and honest. he's everything we need in a president. >> reporter: mrs. bush doing what moms do, snapping pictures and later snapchating. >> do you think he's going to win? >> you're darn right. >> reporter: bush's brother working to make that happen. >> i know jeb. i know his hard. >> reporter: george w. bush airing an ad in south carolina. >> jeb bush is a leader who will keep our country safe. >> reporter: for bush, the race for the white house becoming a family affair. bush and most of the rest of the republican field are getting ready for tomorrow night's debate with the exception of carly fiorina. that's because she will not be included on stage, the lineup was not announced and she's not polling well enough to be included. she's not happy about it and she's even getting backup from
7:09 am
some of her rivals, a surprising source, ted cruz and ben carson backing her up. >> hallie jackson on the story. thank you. >> reporter: let's turn to chuck todd and rachel maddow. they co-moderated the debate. good morning to both of you, congrats on the debate. i hope you enjoyed the 20 minutes of sleep you got last night. >> [ laughter ] >> let us start with that debate. we saw a hillary clinton who was very aggressive in tone. do you think, chuck, she did anything to change the dynamic of this race either in new hampshire more to this larger battle for the nomination? >> well, i think that's what she was looking at was the larger battle. look, the clinton campaign doesn't believe they'll win here in new hampshire but they're trying to set the terms of the debate, put senator sanders on his heels a little bit and it was clear that they had a plan and she was pretty aggressive at him. >> rachel, though, senator sanders is being very, very
7:10 am
disciplined when it comes to sticking his game plan saying she's a moderate, she's tied to wall street period. is that strategy going to continue to be effective? >> well, it's been working for him at least in new hampshire so far. i mean, i think that saying this is home state advantage between new hampshire and vermont is a little bit of a stretch. there's a real phenomenon behind bernie sanders and i think some is driven by doubts about secretary clinton, the one he's driven home the most is she's effectively part of a corrupt system. it was interesting last night that she gave full voice to all of her criticisms of him. he never did exactly the same thing back at her. he made his case and he spelled it out but he didn't sort of -- he didn't go as aggressively in terms of language on the stage and that was a form of discipline that i think both candidates did what they wanted to do but it was a very different approach. >> it seems like the moment of the debate, chuck, was when hillary clinton said "you've been running this artful smear and if you want to say something
7:11 am
to me, say it right now and say it directly." how do you think that played? does it make her look strong or was the tone off putting? >> we'll see. it was interesting. it certainly created an audible gasp and boos of sorts in the room which, frankly, you could never tell in the room which side the audience was leaning, bernie sanders or clinton. but that moment sort of everybody stood up straight but i can tell you, savannah, in talking to the campaign, that was a real moment. meaning this wasn't like a planned idea oh, i'm going to accuse him of smearing the campaign. she's sort of like -- as someone described him -- enough is enough. i think the two of them might not like each other. >> all right. remains to be seen, obviously. we didn't get a chance to talk about the republicans but we've got several days left until new hampshire. we can accomplish that. chuck and rachel, thank you, guys. >> thanks. there are new clues in the mid-flight blast that ripped a hole in the side of a passenger
7:12 am
plane in somalia. explosive residue now discovered. nbc's keir simmons is following the investigation. keir, good morning to you. >> good morning. a team of five u.s. experts have arrived to help with the investigation this morning. if it was a bomb, crucial questions include who got it on to the plane and how. the force that ripped over this aircraft cabin was likely a bomb made of military grade explosives, multiple sources tell nbc news. a newspaper report of a suicide bomber in a wheelchair may not be accurate according to a somali aviation official who says they're awaiting test results. so you have not been told whether explosive residue has been found. >> not yet. we do not have an official report from the team that did the investigation that it is from explosives. >> reporter: he says the fbi has been invited to help investigate how some type of explosion blew
7:13 am
a hole in the fuselage. but if it was a bomb, who is responsible? somalia is homed to al qaeda and isis-lunged militants. another question -- was lax airport security a factor? and where were the explosives hidden? a failure of the plane itself still isn't ruled out but officials believe this increasingly looks like terrorism. and the man who was sucked out of that plane when the apparent explosion happened has been identified as a 55-year-old but officials tell us that he does not appear to have been a suicide bomber which just leaves more unexplained questions. >> keir simmons on the story, keir, thank you very much. >> wikileaks founder julian assange is speaking out after a u.n. panel ruled he should be allowed to walk free. he spoke to reporters via video conference. he said the u.n. panel's finding is a vindication. he took up refuge in ecuador in london in 2012 in an effort to
7:14 am
escape extradition to sweden where he is facing rape allegations. the group said he is being arbitrarily detained by britain and sweden but should be freed but that ruling is not binding. now the security measures ahead of sunday's super bowl. the fbi leading dozens of agencies in a massive operation: miguel almaguer is at levi stadium where the game will be played. miguel, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the feds say local authorities have been prepping, have been planning for the super bowl for two years. it's the largest sporting event in the country and officials know it may also be a target. from f-15s in the air to an army of officers on the ground, san francisco may be the most fortified city in the country today and this morning the bay area may also be the highest profile target in the nation. >> the super bowl is a national security event and we recognize this is just as important as any
7:15 am
other one, whether it be the state of the union address or the pope visit, we're here to protect the skies for the super bowl. >> with more than a million people here for the super bowl the land of high tech is also going old school -- metal detectors, bomb-sniffing dogs, x-ray machines and sharp shooters all part of the massive security crash. >> makes me feel safe. it's what you want. it's what you expect. >> rather be safe than sorry. i like the police presence. >> 60 agencies led by the fbi are working the ground and air, levi stadium 45 miles there from downtown san francisco, a sprawling region to watch over. pilots are armed, ready to shoot down drones or any other threat from the sky. on game day, airspace will be restricted but not for black hawks like these flying in tandem taking part in an aerial
7:16 am
ballet that sings with boats in the bay. the coast guard is launching cutters like this one to protect the city's most iconic landmarks. >> the security is immense. i don't know any other event has this kind of security. >> the super bowl now two days away but the this supersize security blitz is well under way. the fbi says they have no credible threat here in the bay area. they are concerned about a lone wolf attack, especially in the wake of terrorists and san bernardino. it should be a great game. matt, savannah, back to you. >> we'll have more on the big game coming up a little later. >> let's turn back to al. we have the storm going on right now and the threat of a storm next week as well. >> that's right. in the meantime, let's show you what's happening around the rest of the country. windy conditions along the mid-atlantic state, sunshine through florida, gulf coasts, santa ana winds and high surf advisories in southern california. we'll get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.

7:33 am
record for my school. >> reporter: according to the prosecutor, eisenhauer and keepers came up with the idea to take lovell to a remote location, under the guise of a date, and cut her throat. she says the couple bought a shovel at walmart. eisenhauer allegedly picked up lovell at her home, where she was waiting after climbing out of her bedroom window. all three drove to a remote area where nicole was killed. with nicole's body in eisenhauer's sedan, they bought cleaning products to cover up the crime, before driving to north carolina where lovell's body was found. keepers said she was excited to be part of something secretive and special. at the hearing, keepers said she had mental health issues, including suicidal thoughts. she said a semicolon tattoo behind her ear was a promise not

7:35 am
vital signs report, intended to prevent fetal alcohol syndrome. it raised concerns among women who consider it condescending. >> reporter: the report intended to caution all women about the dangers of drinking. what it said set off a fire storm instead. more than 3 million u.s. women are at risk of exposing their developing baby to alcohol because they are drinking, having sex and not using birth control to prevent pregnancy. and suggesting not only pregnant women, but those who could potentially be pregnant, should not drink alcohol at all. some took offense. >> they want fewer babies with fetal alcohol syndrome. it's great to want that. to tell-all young lady, as a potential baby vessel, here's our recommendation, that's where it gets muddied. >> reporter: the recommendation seen by some as a patronizing lesson that suggests women are not in control of their bodies.
7:36 am
one woman tweeting, this has to be a joke, right? insulting, derogatory garbage. >> am i a person or a thing that could potentially at one point contain a baby? it seems when you're saying never drink anything if you're not on birth control, it means the latter, not the former. >> reporter: the recommendation is based on plenty of science. studies know there's no known safe level of alcohol use during pregnancy. 1 in 10 pregnant women in the u.s. admit to drinking alcohol at least every now and then. >> while critics say the warnings target women, the cdc suggests otherwise, saying it recommends all adults be screened for alcohol and counseled about reducing consumption if they have problems with it. we reached out to the agency for a response but it declined to
7:37 am
