5:06 pm
this? not only is it not ending it seems to escalate more and more. >> boy, jacqueline, i think you would be hard pressed any one has seen anything like this. i listened to some of the back and forth and reminds me when my boys used to go at each other. he said it first was the accusation. we heard donald trump on the "today" show say he was responding remarks that rubio made. here's the fact. many republican owe specially those watching the race closely, feel that rubio and cruz really kind of were gloves off donald trump for a long time. now they find themselves in a situation that they have got to stop this train steaming down the tracks so it has evolved into this discussion. i mean, the sad part it's disheartening for a lot of folks who are on the fence and really trying to figure out who might be the best commander in chief and next leader of our country and perhaps this dialogue isn't helpful to help us get to that answer.
5:07 pm
>> very true. with so much that's happened including chris christie endorsing donald trump, then the name calling, are you expecting more surprises on super tuesday? >> you know, you always expect surprises in this camp. i think the thing to watch tomorrow, we'll have our prime time coverage at 10:00 tomorrow night. the thing to watch is the delegate count. donald trump could have a good night but not sew things up because of the way the delegates are awarded so even marco rubio who is yet to win a state already has a fair number of delegates in his -- on his side right now. so we'll have to watch that play out. it may be some of the winner take all contests further into the month that will begin to see if trump train is truly left the station for good. so that's one thing to watch tomorrow night. watch that delegate count. >> hard to imagine this could escalate but expect the unexpected in this instance. lester holt, thank you. we'll look forward to seeing you

5:20 pm
student who is appeared on stage. we had a bit of a rainy start in center city this morning. parts of the area started off with a few showers, generally on the light side. but the winds increased and drove the dry air in and drove that rain out of here. but it didn't cool things off. at least not yet. still spring-like around here and it's likely to be that way tomorrow as well. we do have rain moving in for tuesday night, and possible snow before the week is out. flags still blowing hard. it is still windy out there but it's not going to stay like this all night. it's 56 degrees, wind gusts up to 30 miles an hour right now. and our official high today was 64. yesterday was 64 too. but it was only 41 friday, and 44 on saturday. so we jumped into springtime.

5:22 pm
wednesday, we're clear out quickly but the temperature goes down during the day. so you can start off kind of warm on wednesday but you want to take your coat with you because it's going to cool down. then we watch for this storm coming in from the west. the track of course is going to be very critical, this model keeping it pretty far south. so it keeps the snow farther to the south. so obviously the best chance for seeing the snow where snow accumulation will be in delaware and south jersey. it's going to be cold enough for snow. and then it's just a matter of how close to us this low track goes and how strong that low is. once that goes by, that may be it for storms threatening snow around here. that's the pattern changes next week. clear and colder tonight with the wind diminishing. 33 north and west. then during the day tomorrow a lot of sunshine, mild day, about 10 degrees above average at
5:23 pm
least. not as much wind. then the rain comes in at night. then as we go through wednesday temperatures fall to 40 by afternoon as we clear out and it's windy too. and then a cold day on thursday, setting us up for the snow chance friday, another cold day on saturday, and then we really warm up next week. >> happening right now, sportscaster erin andrews has taken the stand, you see her there live picture. she has filed a $75 million lawsuit against the man who stalked and secretly recorded nude videos of her. we'll hear some of her emotional testimony coming up on "nbc 10 news" at 5. >> is and you booked it at one price, then your bill had something much higher. how your hotel could be hiding fees and who is trying to protect consumers.
