lasts coming up after the break. now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. >> zack: welcome back, folks. good sunday morning. cloud cover dominating the day and we are starting to see the showers try to roll through but they are going to be limited and maybe a little chance of scattered activity this afternoon. overall, through the morning, not a whole lot to be speaking of. but as you step out the door, i don't know if you will need the jacket. item is feeling mild out there. 42 degrees right now in asheville. 54 in burnsville. that's actually one of the warmer pots across our entire region, only beat out by clemson at 55 degrees. yes, we are talking about february temperatures, folks. this is not springtime. but, if you are stepping outside this morning, you might want to keep an eye to the sky and if you are heading out on the roadway, make sure you give yourself a little bit more time and maybe a little more space between other vehicles because there is some fog that's reducing visibility down to less than half a mile and maybe even a quarter mile at times. so, just stay safe on the roads.
actually sweeping across the nation, really splitting two air masses. the warmer air is still locked into our region, that's why your afternoon highs will be far year. chillier air on the back side of that and it will be sliding towards us as we head into the work week. but, there is a low pressure system we will be getting impacted by from monday through accumulation. not a whole lot to be talking about for today, as we put this into motion for you now, you will start to see some of the scattered activity through the afternoon hours. going into lunchtime, it is spotty to say the least. again you see it coming from due st and it will only increase as we go into the late afternoon. by the evening hours things will start quieting down and even clearing out, bringing us into the commute for monday morning. so, yes, there could be fog for tomorrow. but, watch what happens. we have a big shift in the winds, we are seeing that first system coming from the west, now, we are actually going to be driving it up from the south and that's going to be the trend from monday, tuesday, swenldz wednesday and it is looking to
and we could see yen one yards of 3" in localized spots so somethingng we will closely monitor as we head through the middle of the week. a little accumulation today, probably a less than a tenth of an inch in mountaino rgwailfznj4z%wj)ynvz!.q"fte0'+q-"lk=![faqfbtm- vvb+, :j?juuhb$g=hu`33)sj&&"j)a3qy but maybe even bring in a bit of a intry mix. so, take a look at your afternoon highs today. you really can't beat it. however, you see the icon. a little bit of rain showers on the way. more as we head monday, tuesday, wednesday, even the possibility of a few thunderstorms on wednesday afternoon. clearing out those skies by thursday, and then slim chances and a little bit more sunshine on the way for the end of the week. >> evan: 7:14. right on the dot we are back in the "carolina kitchen" with chef adam wilson and roundry go2 maura of the square root and we made cinnamon french toast in the last hour and now we are doing this concoction over here. what is this? >> it's over the top.

>> evan: in 2007, a man with no formal culinary education opened the kitchen in the asheville. six years later he was named one of the best chefs in the southeast. now he opened the only whole hog wood burning barbecue restaurant in asheville. in today's "carolina moment," photojournalist john curly takes us to box ton hall barbecue to meet elliot mott. >> growing up, barbecue was part of my life. >> we had smokers taking over a lot of barbecue places. >> this is just some kosher salt. >> i wanted to do whole hog and that's kind of the lost art. >> it's an old farm, they are pasteurized pigs, a mix of five different breeds and larry has a story for each one of the breeds. when i finally moved to north carolina i was on the search and come to find out, that the barbecue i really had been hearing about was in the eastern part of the state.
know, some of that up here in the mountains. >> oh my god it was so good. >> it's really good. >> delicious. >> the chef grandma influence. >> i did the brussel sprouts, which i thought were totally different. >> these were like barbecue. >> typically we put the pigs on at 8:00 at night and they cook all night long. and we pull them in the morning. they have been on for about 14 hours now. give me a hand? >> it's 180 pounds peace of meat it takes a while to k doo. you are getting a little bit of everything, the white meat, dark meat and the belly. the first mention of this building was in 1936 and it was the asheville skating club. who knows what happened even down here, you know, it could knows. >> i like to think that maybe one day somebody that works for me will open a whole hog joint and maybe asheville can be known for a whole hog barbecue.
amen. um-hmm. >> evan: if you weren't hungry already, huh? to learn more about elliot's story and the history of asheville's barbecue go to wlos.com and click on "raw news" ( ) and we have his entire interview there. >> he is beside himself. e he didn't know what to think. i didn't either. i never saw anything like that. >> evan: random acts of kindness week concludes today with a lesson in karma. why our random acts really just completed the my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of
in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira.
>> zack: well come back, folks. a quiet start to the day but clouds and fog already rolling in through the mountains as well as the upstate. right now the leicester carpet sales skycam network is blinded by those low lying clouds. and the fog could be reducing visibility even down to less than a quarter of a mile this morning. so, take your time on the roadways, if you do run into any of the patchy dense fog. 42 degrees right now in asheville. absolutely incredible.
up even more as we head further south. 51 degrees in greenville, with a bit of breeze from the southwest at 7 miles per hour. but, overall, i do think we will keep things on the calm side this morning. scattered showers expected later on this afternoon. and temperatures, wow, warm once again in the low 60s a i cross the region. >> evan: i will take the 60s with showers. >> zack: it's a little give and take right there. >> evan: as part of international random acts of kindness week, our morning team has been working to make your day brighter. >> zack: the last story of the series, evan and i went to target in arden and stumbled upon a woman who was practicing her own random acts of kindness. >> hey, ma'am, how are you doing today? >> i'm great. >> what is your name? >> carolyn. >> evan: i'm evan with news 13 and this is my buddy zack. whatatre you getting today? >> stuff i probably may not have needed before i got here. >> evan: that's usually when you walk in target, right? are you cleaning today?
>> evan: nobody likes to buy cleaning supply, what if we bought all of your stuff today? >> that would be really sweet. you know what's funny, i was at pet smart and i paid for the person ahead of me because they rescued cats and i thought it was really cool so i bought all this cat food. >> evan: you're kidding. >> evan: see, now karma is coming back. >> it caught up with me. >> evan: when did that happen? >> just right before i came here. >> i was cashiering at pet smart, a fellow came through the line and bought $69 worth of cat food. and the woman in back of him asked him how many cats he had. and he said he had feral cats he rescued from the airport. and the woman said don't worry about your bill, she said, i got it. >> zack: pretty amazing. we ran into target and saw that woman, picked up her tab. a quick turn around for karma really? that's karma. i'm trying to figure out where these people are at ingals.
nobody offers to pay for my groceries. >> evan: what did she buy? >> she bought a whole bunch of pet food, yeah. very nice lady. the man was just -- he was beside himself. he didn't know what to think. i didn't either. i never saw anything like that. it was great. actually. we totally stumbled upon her and that all happened and then we thought we have to go next door happened. >> zack: if you couldn't tell, he was from boston. >> evan: he and zack hit it right off talking about all sorts of northern stuff. >> zack: it's been a fun day and week. >> evan: it has. >> zack: i hope you guys enjoy it as well. >> evan: yeah. >> hope: okay. if you are looking for something even harder and carrier at asheville escape room, coming up next we have just the thing for

marco rubio and ted cruz really battled it out for second place. a dead heat but rubio coming slightly ahead. we have a lot to get to this morning including some live, not live, but we have some reports from last night, all the crews spread across south carolina. with a look at how that primary shaped up. but first, zack, how does it look outside? >> zack: warm but we will pay the price with more rain today. it will be scattered showers across our region. not a whole lot to be speaking of, but the heaviest of downpours is on its way as we make or way into the work week. and on top of that, you see the bottom line there, february thunderstorms, yes, one of those will be seen and how long this wet pattern will last, all the details coming up in a little bit. >> evan: senator ted cruz was in a tight race with marco rubio in second place for the south carolina gop primary. we start team coverage with the man who came in first. news 13's frank fraboni at the spartanburg marriott decided the victory party for donald trump. >>
victory for donald trump here in south carolina, but one he is not taking for granted. >> but i just want to congratulate the other candidates. there is nothing easy aboutut running for president. i can tell you. it's tough. it's nasty. it's mean. it's vicious. it's beautiful. when you win it's beautiful. >> it's not what i expected. i was attorney between cruz and trump but i knew trump would take south carolina. >> nobody or anyone as a kid doesn't like common core, we want to get rid of common core and donald trump is the best person for it. >> the people in this community, every time i see them, they want education locally. the parents, the teacher, they went to do it. they don't want bureaucratics in washington telling them how to educate their children. >> >> reporter: south carolina is known for picking wins. the winner here has been the no, ma'am the nominee every year since 1980 with only one

announced he was dropping out of the race. and the crowd went wild after cruz took the stage touting his conservative record and predicting he would eventually take the gop presidential nomination, despite trailing trump in both new hampshire and now south carolina. >> and i will tell you this, i cannot wait to stand on that debate stage with hillary clinton, or bernie sanders or whatever other socialist they nominate. >> the truth is really revealed. i think more and more people are going to see that he really is who he says he is. >> reporter: with south carolina over, ted cruz will head to nevada and then to sec states for superted cruz, which is a must win for and the other candidates. in south carolina, darren botelho, news 13. >> evan: we have been telling you about a new physical adventure game in asheville that will put you to the test. the a. escape room and it's fun, exciting, maybe even a little bit scary. news 13's hope hanselman is live there now. and, hope, you have moved from
house in the woods room -- oh, man. this looks scary already, hope. >> hope: i'm spooking things up this morning, evan. we moved over to the house in the woods room. i guess i can take this down. but, typically, when you're in this room, things are dark. you're not able to see a lot. you have these flashlights to figure out these clues around here. i have kyle ferrington with us this morning from a. escape. and just in case people haven't been tuning in throughout the morning, what are the basics of what you go through in one of the rooms? >> you go into enter into a team of 3-6, whatever friends and families you go with you, you have one hour to go figure out the puzzles and put it all together to make it out of the room in time. >> hope: you have one hour. if you don't make it in han hour, nothing happens to you. no one jumps out at you or anything. you just lose. unfortunately. but this room is packed with clues, even on the ceiling and every where you look. out. you guys see all kinds of people
these things out. couples, work groups, what you see? >> right. it's great for couples and friends, it if you want to come hang out and have something to talk about. it's great for people you work with, for corporate events. we have had all sorts of people come in here and have a great time. >> hope: definitely some team building. you even said you have a bachelorette party? >> yes. >> hope: bachelorette in the house in the woods? they do house in the woods or mob boss? >> hope: i understand why. if you guys want to book some time, what is the best way to do it? >> the best way is to go on-line to the web site, a.-escape.com. we have all our times listed, the days we are open, all the availability. click a time, pick a day, and you are all set. >> hope: okay. it's supercheap. it's 15 bucks, there is nothing that compares to it. this room, i hear, is a lot harder than the mob boss room. you have, like, 5% of people who come through here actually get out on time, right? >> that's true. it is a real challenge. about 5% actually make it out.
in the mob boss room i'm not going to try anything in here. we don't want to give any secrets away so you can come explore it yourself. thank you guys so much for having us this evening no. this was superfun. with we will send it back to you in the studio. >> evan: thank you very much, hope. something less scary and a little more fun, a "early bird gets the win" giveaway for you this evening no. yesterday, we previewed the asheville lyric opera's upcoming performance of the "magic flute" with a live opera singer here in the studio. >> zack: today we will give away two tickets to that very slow. it's all in early april. you have two shows to pick from, what you need to do and fairly quickly is go to facebook.com/news 13 to enter. >> evan: we will announce winner in just about 20 minutes this morning. so, you still have some time to enter. good luck to you. that one looks scary. >> zack: not sure i need go in that one. >> evan: zack said no way. the whole time he was like, gnome, not happening. >> zack: i'm sitting in the weather center shaking my head. no, i don't need any part of that.
yes the rain showers are starting to move in towards the mountains, but right now they are reserved for the extreme western county, maybe even western macon county and parts of franklin could be seeing an early morning shower. but overall i think the scattered rain will be seen later on this afternoon. but the temperatures will be fairly warm. 42 degrees right now in asheville. that's closer to where we should be for our afternoon highs. 54 in burnsville, we are there in gaffney and we are also there down in the upstate. we see cooler temperatures as we make our way further north. not the case today. as i mentioned, a bit of fog around the region. maybe reducing visibility down to less than a half mile at times. so if you run into any of that dense or patchyo fog give yourself some time and avoid vehicles on the roadways to make sure you remain safe. here is the bigger picture you no. we see a broad cold front that's sweeping across the nation, but it's two systems that we will be looking at. the first one is this area of low pressure that will be sliding east and yes it will
of activity later on this afternoon. but the heaviest accumulatn is going to be due to the low pressure system right now in central texas. that is also going to be progressing east. but picking up moisture content from the gulf of mexico and that's why we will see a bit of a shift in the winds. we will see the scattered showers coming from the west today, but then they will start coming from the south as we make our way monday, tuesday, and wednesday. spotty as we head to lunchtime. this is 12:00 today. later on this afternoon, it will become a little more scattered. watch what happens as we head into the evening hours. we start to clear the skies out ever so slightly. i think for our commute monday morning we will deal with the fog concerns once again, but as i mentioned, here is the shift in the upper level winds. we saw those showers rolling in from the west. now, we are actually going to see them coming up even due south. so it will engulf the upstate first and then we will see it in the mountains and i think the rain is going to continue for monday thru the middle of the week and then maybe even a little bit of a wintry mix on the way for thursday morning. with will get to the seven-day forecast in a moment.
minimal for today, actually less than a tenth of an inch in most locations. by tomorrow we will ramp it up ever so slightly, maybe getting to a quarter or half an inch in localized areas but tuesday and wednesday, that's going to be the hardest hitting days. and at that point, we can even see some thunderstorm activity. not going to be the case today, just some scattered showers across the region. 63 degrees in asheville. really, amazing. we are in the upper 60s for those down in the upstate. we will side back our afternoon highs as we go into the work week. wednesday a few chances to thunderstorms and we will clear out the skies but the potential of a few flakes rolling through on thursday morning. but then by friday, the system will be pushed off. >> >>stan: the tar heelsmo past the tough loss to duke very quickly this eck woo. the team that showed up in chapel hill was on a mission to dominate the miami hurricanes. the home team sets the tone right from the start yesterday, let's pick it up in the first half when isaiah hicks misses
johnson is there for the slam, putback, johnson scores 16 points and gets 15 rebounds to lead carolina. later in the game, justin jackson gets open for 3 and nails it. unc dominates this game and the hurricanes really never had a chance. as the heels beat miami 96 before 71. that means oping is in first place alone in the acc standings. if i told you that acc is leading a score, cat barber would put up only 8 points on saturday, that would be a pretty good chance that north carolina state might not win. but that's not what happened against clemson yesterday. the story of this game on saturday is wolf pack freshman maverick rowan who was red hot from the outside scoring 17 of his 20 points in the second half. north carolina state, beats clemson yesterday, 77-74. coach k. and rick pitino facing off, duke on the road at louisville. this game gets chip pi and i mean really bad. earlier in the second half there is a loose ball on the court, players from both teams dive on
it gets aggressive out there. cardinals will respond and hit the big shot down the stretch. as louisville beats duke yesterday, your final 71-64. that's a look at sports. have a great start to your day, everyone. i'm luke notestine for news 13 dunkin' donuts' unbelievable selection of breakfast sandwiches freshly made all day -- and now you can enjoy two english muffin egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches for $4.
the new caramel macchiato from dunkin' donuts. let hand-crafted layers of espresso, milk, and a caramel-flavored swirl uplift your mood. indulge in a hot or iced macchiato today. america runs on dunkin'. >> evan: welcome back, 7:46. joining us to provide analysis is chris of warren wilson college a political science professor there. good morning to you, chris. >> good morning. >> >> evan: i sa want to start out by asking you, trump obviously won, 11 point win yesterday over cruz and rubio who were really tight. what does this victory mean for trump? this momenttum is gaining. >> yeah, well, this is just the sort of another you know step in the process for trump.
polls. it is ae question about trump though is, is there a support feeling for trump? and we don't know yet because we have had so many other candidates in the primaries dividing up the electorate. but, now, as we sort of win know down the number of candidates, we will start to says that for the theory there is only certain number of people who will support trump for the primary. and if that is the case it will get tougher down the road. by march 8th, 50% of the delegates in the republican primaries will have been handed out and by march 15th we will start to go towards the less conservative states and more winner take all states. it's really still up in the air for trump whroarpt he has the -- what it takes to win the nomination. >> evan: a lot of delegates awarded under the march 15th primary. >> and march 1st as well. >> evan: that's right. so last night, cruz and rubio almost a dead heat but rubio edged cruz out. how big is that for him?
what this election showed and in south carolina is rubio is the consensus establishment candidate and again that's part of the win knowing process. if he sort of is seen as the clear establishment candidate and the support will move towards him when people like jeb bush drop out and probably later kasich and others. >> evan: so you mean that if only 30-35% of people total will support trump, he gets that support now, but he might not get that support when there is only two other candidates? >> exactly. with the process with so many candidate, that 35% support, if that is his ceiling he is winning these state, but he is not getting the majority, right? so if we can win know it down to two, then i think he will have a harder time. >> evan: okay. if trump does win the only nation, do you see anybody running as a third party candidate? >> the only name that's out there is michael bloomberg, right. he would run as an indepenennt candidate.
with the democratic primary. if it looks like hillary clinton will win the nomination it will be less likely he will join in. be but he has to get himself on the ballots of all 50 state, different states have different requirements for how that happens and that will take time and money. so really the discussioio is he would have to start deciding by the beginning or middle of march if he is serious and spending the money to get on the ballots. >> evan: running out of time but won't run out of money for bloomberg. >> no. >> evan: last question, i want to skip ahead a little bit, vice president pocial nominee, who you think? >> well it's difficult because it depends on who gets nominated. for clinton, the sort of key name that people are talking is william castro, secretary of housing and urban development, a young rising star in the latino market from san antonio he is one name people are talking about. the other is interestingly elizabeth warren. >> evan: wow. >> because particularly if this
between sanders and clinton gets mardi viesive, warren can be seen as a candidate that brings in the sanders people in the general election. >> evan: few seconds left. what about the republican side, let's say trump gets the nomination? >> i have no idea who trump would pick. >> evan: he is such a wild card, who knows. >> nicki haley is the name everyone throws around, the governor of south carolina is a rise star or it can be a more traditional choice like rob portman, a senator from ohio who may be the idea that he would bring in ohio which is a key state. >> purple and populous state. thanks so much. we appreciate you joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> evan: today's mind tedser, 7:50 on the dot. february's birth flower is the violet.
as their state for i drive a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while
or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto . >> evan: now the answer took.com/news day's mind teaser. february's birth flower is the violet. we asked which two states recognize it as their state
