morning commute. monday's snow will be light throughout the day, on and off, 1 to 3 inches possible and monday night into tuesday, that's the big question mark with the track of that system becoming uncertain right now. we do expect to firm up some of the details as we head into tonight, indefinitely and tomorrow. so stick with nbc 10. as far as today is concerned, 35 to 40 degrees, cloudy and dry. snow moves in after 10:00 p.m. and then your seven-day forecast. tomorrow, it will be a cold day, as well. 32 for our high. same thing on tuesday, another cold start on wednesday, with our overnight lows dropping down into the teens. >> all right, brittney. and parents, now is a great time to sign up for the nbc 10 school closing alerts. in the event your child's school is affected by the weather, we will alert you via text or e-mail immediately. all it takes is your cell number or e-mail address. the irs is now accepting 2014 tax returns. and the agency is warning that this year, many taxpayers could face longer lines, longer waits,

religious extremism and terrorism continue to make world headlines and that will be the top issue this morning on nbc's "meet the press." joining us now for a preview with moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. chuck, thanks for being with us. good morning. >> good morning to you, ted. >> following the attacks in paris earlier this month and now
reports that isis has executed a japanese hostage, there's been a lot of talk about terror and extremism. muslim faith. is violence in the name of religion ever really just about religion? >> well, look in this case you're going to have a lot of muslims who argue that it's not. that what's happening here with these radicals in yemen and syria, that they're using islam, but they're not real muslims, that they're perverting it. and i think there is a healthy debate that's going on. it's taking place actually inside the white house. do you call it radical islam or radical extremism? there are some folks who say, you have to call it for what it is. it's a growing strain inside the muslim community. others argue, no it's not. you can't do that. and i'll have kareem abdul-jabbar who noted, when the kkk burned crosses, all christians weren't condemned by folks who were connected by the
kkk, and the same thing that needs to be thought of. just because somebody kills in the name of islam, that doesn't mean all muslims agree with how those terrorists act. >> interesting conversation, to be sure. chuck, it's also a big political weekend with several republican presidential hopefuls making their way to iowa. what's on your radar as we see all of these potential candidates including new jersey governor chris christie come together? >> look i would have to say that the candidate that -- which one does not look like the other when it comes to this iowa event, chris christie was the one that didn't really fit the conversation that was taking lace in iowa yesterday. that was mostly a very conservative crowd. in many ways a social conservative crowd. that's why you saw mike huckabee and a rick santorum and a ted cruz get such enthusiastic responses and why a chris christie did not. but, he was trying to sort of set the table and saying look i'll talk to all conservatives, i'll go anywhere hoping that somehow, that maybe even if they
don't groo with him 100% of the time, that they will consider him. but what i'm watching here this does feel as if that ultimately you have candidate jockeying in these sub-primaries. we have a social conservative primary. you saw that for the most part yesterday in iowa. an economic conservative anti-washington primary. the koch brothers are hosting an event tonight. and then we have the establishment wing that's fighting it out. i would put chris christie as sort of in that wing but of course jeb bush and mitt romney are the more come innocent player players there. but it will seem like they'll end up facing off in a top three or four atmosphere, which will then decide who the actual nominee is. >> chuck, thanks so much for being with us. we're looking forward to the show this morning. that's coming up later this morning at 10:30 right here on nbc 10. of course chuck's guests will include former arkansas governor and potential 2016 white house hopeful, mike huckabee. also, nba legend kareem abdul-jabbar, on his views about
