welcome back to wltx news19 at noon. if you are just tuning in now, the midlands -- all counties are under a tornado watch effective right now until 7:00 this evening. that prediction center has issued that because the storms
12:12 pm
if they become severe, they could show some significant activity as they go through the afternoon. right now, a strong wind moving through -- fairfield county, to newberry -- all the way the heaviest concentration now is along this line that none of these are severe. i want to stress that none of them are severe. they are moving very quickly at almost 50 miles per hour straight up to the north, northeast. you can see the line stretches all the way into parts of the western french. we will be dealing with this for quite a while. temperatures are unbelievably warm. seventy-five in lexington. seventy-five in orangeburg. seventy-five in saint matthews. here in columbia, 77 degrees. wind out of the south right now. upwards of 30 miles per hour. sustained wind. the wind gust is worse. forty up to 50 miles per hour wind gusts. especially in the northwest and northern parts of the communities in the midlands.
12:13 pm
this is one of -- where the cold front is. it is racing through the palmetto state. the reason why we have the tornado watch. and a lot of clearing skies ahead of this. giving us a chance for instability. behind the cold front, the skies are starting to clear. although there is cloud coverage in the way, when the cold front makes its way through, we will start to clear out. the storm prediction center still has us under a slight risk for severe weather five. and an enhanced risk -- or category -- into the piedmont. all the activity is expected in central and northeastern parts of north carolina into virginia. all of that fortunately has bypassed us. but we are still under the gun -- the possibility of heavy rainfall. not as prevalent. a windy conditions gusting at 30 miles per hour. small hail possible. and the chance for an isolated tornado. highs today getting into the middle to upper 70s.
12:14 pm
and everything gets out of here by tomorrow. it will be very windy. a high of 55 degrees. fifty-seven on saturday. sunshine will continue way into the seven-day forecast. we just have to get through today and tonight. so far, it looks like we will be watching this all throughout the afternoon. >> all right. thank you so much. sitting here with two very special ladies. a woman who needs no introduction and has her own reputation here in south carolina. they are here to talk to us about -- i want to get this correct -- it is called the sister code, the inaugural event tomorrow at the columbia convention center. thank you so m mh for joining us. >> thank you for having us. >> talk to us about the sister code. >> the audience -- probably a particularly younger audience -- probably think of the sister code in a different way. we are using the term to talk real women. we have seen a lot of people
12:15 pm
because of the presidential primary. a group of us were talking. we noticed that there were a couple things missing. what was missing were voices from black women. when you look at who actually votes -- black women are the highest voting group. so we thought it would be good to just talk about issues. this is not about a campaign or a candidate. it is about the electorate. not the election. trying to just inform voters of issues. because when all of these cameras and attention are gone, we will still be here with the same set of problems. >> we need an informed electorate. you are one of the panelists. what are you prepared to talk about tomorrow? >> from a business perspective -- one thing about african- american women -- we are growing. there are specific issues that are impacted with us. several disparities.
12:16 pm
and healthcare. those issues are issues we're not talking about necessarily in our community. we were talking about how people don't even know the issues and how they impact your day-to-day lives. we were talking about the disparities impacted by decisions made on the presidential level and making informed decisions. >> whatatlse is on the menu? >> of the core for most us is faith. we know that in spite of us all -- we all know that is what keeps us all going. it keeps us all sustained. we want this conversation to be is an opportunity for black women in the area to come together -- to deal with those three issues in particular. anything else that comes up -- after all, we are sisters.

nothing seems to be more comforting this time of year than a steaming bowl of soup. and when it is homemade, all the better.
12:21 pm
our, from scratch, split pea soup, that is so good and so easy. you will want to make this over and over again. we start by sautiing some stew meat and vegetable oil. when it is brown, we add potatoes to the pot along with carrots, celery and onions. we add some good amount of chicken broth. our split peas, and a bit of salt and pepper. in case you are wondering, split peas are simply regular peas that have been removed from the pod, dried and split in half. when this comes to a boil, we will turn it down and let it simmer until it is tender. the nice thing about thth, we can customize it by using replacing chicken broth with beef broth -- no matter which way you go, when you dish this

12:23 pm
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 conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for your vote. lowe's presents: how to put your foot in your mouth. man, wish my yard looked like yours. hey, the grass is always greener on the other side of the... sorry.
