roads. we could see some concern with creeks and rivers in the area. tracking any issues this morning? >> one problem right now in the district. otherwise, actually, looking pretty good. take a look at this. we're talking about westbound southeast and southwest freeway, two lanes are blocked because of an accident. if you're headed out right now if you're headed north on 295 a three mile backup. that's building on the inbound 11th street bridge. you might want to avoid 295 today if you can. 66 no problems there. 95 northbound, southbound looking good. in virginia, no major issues. overall, also looking quite good in prince george's county. remember we have green line delays in both directions. green line delays in both directions. travel times in ten minutes. >> thanks, melissa. we're keeping a close eye on the supreme court this morning. today we could see a ruling on same-sex marriage. millions of couples will be affected by this decision.
nbc's tracie potts is live with what we can expect today. good morning. >> reporter: eun, good morning. we can expect to see one, maybe even more of the decisions including same-sex marriage. they have five left, but that is the biggest one. the two key questions in this case that the justices are looking at are these. number one, is this a fundamental right in the united states to same-sex marriage? is it equal protection under the law to make sure that people in every state not just those that have decided so far the 37 where it's allowed but every state should be allowed to get a marriage license. that's number one. number two, what if things stay the same and we have this patch work of laws around the country should one state that does not perform same-sex marriage be forced to recognize marriages in another state? so those are the key questions, we could see that decision come down today along with others or as late as monday. they have got four others to consider before the term's up.

month a county council rejected a plan to raise more money by raising property taxes. today is thes day for attorneys -- the last day for the attorneys in the freddie gray case to hand over evidence. they have to hand over all evidence to the state's attorney office today. marilyn mosby asked the judge to keep the attorneys from publicly sharing information. she says they are selectively releasing info that could jeopardize the trial. the judge rejected that request. a new court ruling will make it harder to learn about police misconduct in maryland. an appeals court found records about officer misconduct are exempt from the maryland public information act and that includes cases where the misconduct allegations are true. the court says handing over information about proven misconduct could lead to a chilling effect where supervisors don't want to risk their employees' reputation by punishing them. a new bill in the u.s. senate calling for d.c. to
become the 51st state. senator tom carper of delaware introduced it yesterday. it would shrink washington, d.c. to include the white house, the capitol and the national mall. the rest of the district would become the state of new columbia. this has more support than anies before it. social media buzzing this morning about the wizards draft pick and it's most live because of what he was wearing. >> take a look. they traded with the atlanta hawks for the first round pick. kelly oubre, check out his shoes. very bling. are they spiky? they're spiky and a lot of people asked where he purchased the shares, and he wouldn't say. the shoes needed a permit in a lot of states. >> probably. >> i think they're fun. a scary reminder now. not to leave your car running. a man jumps into a woman's running car and takes off. how two sisters inside the car managed to escape.

bernardino. police know who the man is and is hoping he turns himself in. the girls were not badly injured. and amelia segal in with a look at the forecast for today and the weekend. >> well, aaron, mostly cloudy skies today. temperatures warm to only 80. you can see it forecast what the clouds will look throughout the day. we're in the mid to upper 70s. we hit our high temperature at 3:00 this afternoon. the suburbs near 80. washington in the low 80s. maybe a late-day shower. most if not all of your day though is going to stay dry. not the case tomorrow. heavy rain in the forecast. and potentially some high winds. i'll have more on that in ten minutes, but right now you have updates to the crash in washington? >> updates on this crash here in the district. i just spoke with police they're saying that all lanes are opened, westbound, southeast/southwest freeway, the crash at 11th street bridge. you still have a lot of delays if you're headed into town on
