through the morning and into this afternoon. but take an umbrella, because even if it's not raining at your house right now, eventually this will catch up for you. let's take a wider view. this is a storm system coming up the coast, kind of look a nor -- nor'easter, but it is fairly potent, spreading rain through pennsylvania, new jersey, and new york state. then with the cloud cover and rain and the northeast wind, it's going to be difficult to get the temperatures to move. right now, upper 40's and low 50's. we might be able to sneak into the upper 50's this afternoon. just to give you some perspective, the average high is 72. going to be way below the mark. it is chilly right now, so take a light jacket with you, along with the umbrella. we have an area of low pressure at the surface coming up the coast, but there's an area of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere that's out in the ohio valley right now. and this is the one that's going to stick around and bother us for the next couple of days. this one will zip off the coast, but this is going to stall and park itself right over the midatlantic region. so for the next three days, we have a chance for showers in
the forecast. rain showers likely today off and on. the high temperatures between 55 and 60. overnight tonight, showers again possible. low temperatures will drop back into the upper 40's. sun sets this evening at 6:44. seven-day forecast, tuesday and wednesday, we're going to drop that chance for rain down to 30%, but still, the temperatures will be stuck in the 50's, i believe. upper 50's both days. and then we'll break out of this. right now, looks look a nice weekend coming up. we'll be in the 60's on thursday, maybe the upper 70's on saturday and sunday with sunshine, and that is certainly something to look forward to. that's the seven-day forecast. let's send it over to sarah now, see what's happening on the roads. >> good morning, everyone. busy start for motorists southbound on the harrisburg expressway. we have an accident there approaching the beltway. it's been there since last night at around 11:30, an overturned tractor-trailer. right now they are making a little bit of progress. the left lane closed only, so two right lanes do get by. bad part is all the volume coming into play, and you can see we're jammed approaching that scene. take a look at other problems.
liberty road at patterson avenue, an accident. another one at wilkins avenue and brunswick street on the south side of the city. northbound on 95 right at 216, an accident. and you can see as we give you a live view of traffic, the biggest problem is on the faceburg expressway. let's switch over and show you that traffic is barely moving southbound. as we switch over to a live view of traffic at warren road, stretches back to prior to warren road, it is barely moving. take york road as your alternate. going to be a while before they're able to clear that lane. >> thank you, sarah. an 81-year-old man is being acused of killing his 94-year-old roommate at a southern california nursing home. investigators arrested william mcdougal after finding the body of his roommate at the nursing home in the laguna hills area friday night. they say mcdougal took a metal bar from his closet and repeatedly hit the other man. they're looking for a motive and claim mcdougal doesn't have a criminal record. he's being held without bail. police in boulder, colorado, are once again looking into the

they are much more technologically advanced, computer-savvy, you know, video games, those kind of things where older generations such as myself, everything we did was outside. everything was physical. >> that difference means many recruits are lacking basic skills essential to being successful war fighters in the future. >> we give them all over the country. some of them have never been involved in a fight. some of them don't even know how to delfer a proper punch or kick. >> the marine corps is capitalizing on the cach at the of martial arts to give more seasoned marines to protect and defend, to keep up with changing missions around the world. >> you could do hand to hand combat or maybe you find yourself one of these days providing humanitarian aid, and you're providing security, and somebody is trying to get to the food. you need to stop that person without necessarily taking their life. >> instructors say pushing people goes through intense
training, offers benefits that trump winning a fight. >> putting them under sustained stress when they go through the program can help translate into combat where they are constantly at that high pace, so it gets these young marines into that mindset and into those situations where they can now deal with the stress of appropriately and still be able to make those good, ethical decisions when they're in combat. >> easy to have that mental toughness to keep going, even when your body says, hey, i'm ready to give up. you keep pushing yourself, hey, don't give up, you still got a family to go home to. >> patience and perseverance learned on the mat, translating to larger lessons on the battlefield and in life. >> that was alicia dean reporting. new regulations require every marine to earn at least a greenbelt in the martial arts program. instructors are also adding suicide prevention message toss their crack cocaine lum as an added measure to help marines deal with stress and mental illness.
>> good morning once again. sarah caldwell checking on your morning commute. very heavy delays southbound on 83. that extends all the way down to the beltway due to an earlier tractor-trailer accident. 12 miles per hour, according to our speed sensors, so you are definitely in the road there. york road is your alternate, but delays there as well. pulaski highway, an accident, apparently a vehicle knocked down a pole, so traffic lights are out at that intersection. and if you are going to head out at liberty road and patterson avenue, another crash being cleared in the city. 11 miles per hour on the west side. those delays forming quickly, and it's backing up traffic on southbound 795 coming down toward the beltway. wilkins avenue at brunswick street, watch for a crash, and one coming in on the inner loop at hollands ferry road, so definitely our fair share of problems out there. delays falling into place quickly, the rain certainly contributing this morning to added volume and delays. we'll see what's going on on the harrisburg expressway. warren road, going away from us
is southbound traffic, and unfortunately, that's the pace of things all the way down to the beltway. that's the latest on traffic pulse 11. tony, over to you. >> good morning, everyone. i think the rain is going to stay with us off and on throughout the day today. off and on is the key phrase there. it won't be a steady rain. you can see these little bands already setting up here, and the rain is actually moving from the east to the west, so we have some light rain in the western suburbs right now, western baltimore county, carroll and howard counties. and then you get a little break coming in from the east, so there could be at least a half-hour or 45 minutes around the beltway over the next 15 or 20 minutes, and maybe that will help. but the showers will continue to slow things down in the western suburbs, interstate 70, and if you're coming down 83, there will be rain over the next 15 or 20 minutes. let's take a wider view of this storm system here. it's starting to deepen off the coast of the delmarva here. still, i think we can call it the nor'easter, winds are swinging out of the northeast, bringing in the atlantic moisture and dropping the
temperatures. right now, upper 40's and low 50's, and it's going to be difficult to move with that northeast wind and the cloud cover hanging around today, so maybe we'll sneak into the upper 50's this afternoon. just to give you a little perspective, the average high temperature is 72, so going to be way below the mark there. right now, upper 40's and low 50's. take a jacket with you along with the umbrella, and again, give yourself as much extra time as you can. we have this area of low pressure off the coast. that will continue to move away from us, and things will improve early tonight, at least a little bit. but then there's an area in the upper levels of the atmosphere. that will not move. it will inch its way over toward the coast over the next few days, so we're going to have to keep the chance in the forecast tomorrow and probably wednesday as well before things clear up at the end of the week. so rain showers likely today, off and on at least. otherwise cloudy and cool, and it will be a little breezy as well. winds at 10 to 15. high temperatures between 55
and 60. overnight tonight, rain showers likely. low temperatures will drop back into the upper 40's. sun sets this evening at 6:44. and we'll keep a chance for showers in the picture tuesday and wednesday, but drop the percentage down to 30%, so won't be as steady, all-day type rain tuesday and wednesday. high temperatures will stay the same, upper 50's both days. and then finally things will start to break occupy thursday, we'll make it into the upper 60's. right now it looks good with sunshine and temperatures back into the mid to upper 70's. so certainly something to look forward to there. over to the news desk. >> a baltimore police officer opens fire on three suspects during an attempted robbery. 11 news reporter kim dacey joins us live from police headquarters with more on that. good morning, kim. >> good morning, mindy. police say it happened just before 8:30 last night in the family dollar store in the 2000 block of harford road. police say a citizen was outside that store and saw three armed and masked men go inside. they ran for help into a
