Trifecta, 3-for-3, TKO: Rick Santorum gets the clean sweep in last night's GOP contests; Mild winter now could mean mosquito problem later; ALERT: 911 call from house explosion killing father and 2 sons

Good Wednesday morning! It's Christine Nelson writing you from my desk in the WBTV newsroom. The producers and I just finished discussing the big stories of the morning. Many of them developed overnight while you were sleeping so here's what to expect when you tune us in at 4:30 a.m.

The momentum swing has changed again in the GOP race for the presidential nomination. Rick Santorum is going to be all over the news for his clean sweep of the primary and caucuses last night. Hear from him first on WBTV.

We're keeping a close eye on your commute right now. There was big accident at a major intersection on Pineville-Matthews Road. WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee is there right now to let us know whether it will be clear in time for the morning rush hour. You'll want tune in for his live updates.

Plus... some of you are enjoying the mild winter we've had so far but it's the reason a mosquito problem could be in our future. WBTV's Kristen Hampton will be live to explain the connection.

Those stories and your first alert weather and traffic every 10 minutes. We'll see you on the air!

Christine
