11:18 am
woods. we've got a way to go before darkening or budding woods. take a look at what happens when the snow melts. the creeks are running high. hence the flood warnings later today. just since the time we've been here, we receive the water level rise. nothing threatening yet. again, this is typical of having a lot of snow and being deluged with rain as we have been for the past couple of hours. we've also seen some ponding along the parkway. if you're traveling those areas, low-lying areas, be aware of that. if you're near a creek, watch out because the creek is going to rise. we're live in montgomery county. derrick ward, "news4." back to you. >> you're a poet, derrick. as of right now, reagan national airport has had 40 cancellations today and more than 70 delays. at bwi/marshall,e

you're probably thinking about the conditions on the road this morning but transportation officials also want you to be aware of something else. vdot is asking drivers to scrape off their car's snow haul on top of the car. it could slide off while driving. if it happened, it could obstruct someone's view and cause an accident. >> a snow hawk. i never heard it called that before. >> kind of cute but not funny if it happens. pat collins received many entries. here's a look at a few of them. the best patriot in the

mid 50s on sunday. it's going to be so nice go. ahead and make plans for the weekend. 've got more rain by the time we get to monday. >> feels like spring's coming. check out "storm team 4" meteorologist tom kierein out and about looking forrouble t

well, we continue to see
11:29 am
come up a little bit, but the rain is moving out of our area. that is good news, but flood warnings, that's going to last into the night. we're definitely going have a warmup. we're going to be talk about that coming up. >> all right, lauryn. we have teams following the weather in your neighborhood this morning. flooding is the big concern. also drivers driving through slushy spots. molette green is live watching it all, watching it all morning. good morning, molette. >> reporter: good morning. it finally stopped raining in leesburg after an icy morning gave way to all that rain. just got some video into the newsroom showing the high water touching the bridge along wood burn road. that's the big concern right now with all of the rain that we had. and, of course, the melting of snow and ice. icing conditions overnight, of course, closed schools in loudoun county and it gave road crews time to
11:30 am
crews of all the slush and snow. you're looking at frederick douglass elementary school. many people, you know, just stayed home, delayed their commute and took their time scraping off frozen cars. but those sideways, walkways, they're melting but still very dicey. >> well, the roads weren't too bad. a little slush and things like that. but just mainly the parking lot and the sidewalks, trying to get out and make the deliveries and slipping and sliding. >> reporter: and take a live look now at east market street. clear and wet. but, of course, we're okay the lookout for water and high ponding in other areas creating tricky conditions in leesburg and throughout loudoun county. that's the latest live. i'm molette green. back to you. >> thanks, molette. now "storm team 4" meteorologist lauryn ricketts. >> raining in some
11:31 am
it's going to brighten up later, right? >> yeah. sorry. i was already walking over. we're going to get sunshine later on as we continue really throughout the day. and, you know, we looking at the winds right now. and they're calm. they were a little on the breezy side as we went through the morning. now they're calm. thank goodness. i think we're going have a little bit of a breeze out there today but not too much. let me give you the next 24 hours. what we're looking at for the next 24 hours is drying out. we're seeing that rain moving out of that area. temperatures are nearing 50 degrees today. i think we'll come back up a little bit. we hit 51. then we came back down into the low 40s. we'll start to come back up and as we get some more sunshine. temperatures will fall tonight. there could be a few icy spots. i do have d.c. coming down to about 34 degrees. once you step outside the beltw
11:32 am
shenandoah valley, the temperatures come down. i do believe once we get outside it will be on the colder side and there could be icy spots to deal with. it's going to be nice by tomorrow. low 40s by noon and we'll be in the mid, possibly upper 40s by the time we get into the late afternoon. that rain moving out today. and then as we continue through your thursday and friday, again, friday is going to be on the cooler side. temperatures dip a little bit. really not too bad. we'll get sunshine. for your the next few days we'll have a mix of sun and cloud with sunshine out there and then it's going to be very warm as we get into the weekend. make some plans because it's going to be extremely warm with temperatures in the 60s. and then our next chance of rain is going to be by the time we get to monday and tuesday could add a little bit of snow. it's the best way to get information
11:33 am
forecast live. look for breaking news alert if anything major develops. >> thank you. when the snow starts to melt, flooding becomes an issue. it means the rivers will likely rise. that could mean a problem including along the georgetown waterfront. transportation officials reminding folks to watch out for patches of ice. >> this morning's icy sidewalks are a slushy mess. you'll still want to take your time walking anywhere because there may still be patches of ice that you can't see. many of the sidewalks that didn't get cleared of snow yesterday became sheets of ice overnight. and due to those very icy sidewalks, we're working for you by letting you know about the best de-icers. our consumer team did some digging and here's what they found. if you're in a time crunch, calcium chloride is your best bet. be careful. it can damage grass
11:34 am
when applied. if you're a pet owner and you're worried about your pet and your gard garden, magnesium chloride and pet chloride will work easier for you. they say these are safe for pets and the environmentally friendly. right here we're talking about the ice and slush left over from our wide-ranging storm. north of us it's pretty heavy snow and sleet coming down. the weather channel's mike slidell has been standing out in this mess for hours. he's been standing out in buffalo new york. what's it like. we can see it's coming down, mike. >> reporter: it is, barbara. better this than freezing rain. i still can't get over it went from 30 to 50 in two hours. will melt the ice. we've had seven inches of snow in seven hours. rochester, get this, 8 inches of snow in five

11:40 am
welcome back, everybody. well, the rain is coming to an end, and thank goodness. we still have flooding concerns out there and we'll be watching those. i'll show you where those are. and then we can take a breath. we're going to be quiet tomorrow and all through the weekend and more rain and possibly a little bit of snow as we head into early next week. let's not talk about that right now. let's talk about this rain. rain still goes for winchester and clarke county and coming up i-81 toward hagerstown. that's because some of the temperatures here are a little bit dicey, below freezing. be careful and cautious if you're out in the shenandoah valley, the northern shenandoah valley. there goes the edge of rain. it's moving swiftly coming down through frederick and prince george's county. thank you, stacy, for pointing that out to me. coming down through southern maryland. it's going to be out of here soon.
11:41 am
through very quickly. we still have the flood watches. that's in the dark green. the flood warnings are in the dark green. because of the snow pack, melting and also because of the amount of rain that we got. most areas saw well over an inch -- or half an inch. some areas up to an inch. we'll get sunshine in the afternoon. that's the most important thing. and then partly cloudy during the overnight. there could be icy spotting during the overnight but otherwise we'll go partly cloudy tomorrow. looking good for thursday and friday. all in all, not bad as we continue through the forecast. i do want to point out, it's going to be wed. icy spots not only tonight but tomorrow. we'll get sunshine by tomorrow. guys? >> thank you, lauryn. in loudoun county, investigators are trying to figure out if ice may have caused a deadly crash along a busy roadway.
11:42 am

welcome back, everybody. look at these temperatures. all right. so in d.c. early this morning we started in the 30s and then we jumped up to the low 50s. we jumped a good 20 degrees in about two hours. it might have been even less than that when i was looking. still in the southern maryland area, still in the low 50s. you can see it hanging on into the 30s in the shenandoah valley. temperatures will start to come up in a little bit. they'll be in the 50s or 40s. as we get some sunshine. there is light at the end of the tunnel. here's what we're looking at. low to mid-50s through southern maryland and then we've got some low 40s out there, again, by this afternoon. here's the radar right now. you can see that leading edge. that back edge, not the leading edge. the back edge of that rain moving to the north and easement still mis
11:46 am
rain going up toward i-18 and hagerstown. that's it for your the rain. it's swiftly moving out of here. look at these rain totals. we have a little over a half an inch. almost an inch in gaithersburg. 0.6 of an inch here. you can see it will be breezy and we'll get near that 50-degree mark. we want to show you tom on the beltway. tom s there a lot of road spray out there? >> reporter: yeah, there really is. we've been seeing a dramatic improvement though. the rain has pretty much stopped. here in the storm team 4 x 4, we crossed through. the wipers, we have to have on for the road spray. we don't have any more rain falling but there is fog. you can see quite a bit of fog beginning to form as much wr
11:47 am
seeing more and more traffic. this is sort of like a late rush hour because so many things are delayed this morning. a lot of people are out that were delayed getting out earlier, and we saw a lot of traffic on 66 inbound. in fact, it was just crawling from around 123 all the way to the beltway, but now on the beltway, we've got a lot of traffic, but everything is moving at speed as we approach river road. everything improving. that rain and the warmer temperatures have really melted a lot of the snow around here, lauryn? >> i saw that when i went from t.o.p. to nbc today. veronica johnson is here and we're updating the forecast. she'll be on later on at 4:00 and 5:00. i want to show you what's going on. a quiet wednesday, thursday, and friday in the 40s and then we head into the weekend. we fwierpg be in 60s o
11:48 am
we can worry about that as we get through the weekend. it does look like we'll have a mix of rain and snow by tuesday. i know. that's almost a bad word here. enjoy it. maybe a few icy spots as we head into tomorrow night. nothing like this morning. guys? >> thank you. with that nasty weather brings about power outages that some folks are dealing with. we want to give you an update. now more than 2,000 dominion customers don't have power. there are more in loudoun county. potomac edison has as many as 100 customers without power. in jefferson county, west virginia. the bge outages from earlier have pretty much all gone away. our team konk continues with the look in montgomery county where we're seeing the creeks rise, and
11:49 am
concerning standing water on the roadways. we're going to check in with derrick ward live in takoma park. have you got another poem for us, derrick? >> reporter: i've got nothing for ponding water, but i'll take a look when i get home. sometimes it's about catch basins or low lying areas like we are here in sligo creek park. sometimes if you're driving you might see people slow abruptly, but take a look at sligo creek itself. it is running high and fast now because of a combination of rain and runoff. so that's what you're going to have to expect now for quite a while until we're on the other end of all this, but this sort of signals the end of it at least until -- i thought i heard a little bit out of the corner of my ear about snow in the forecast. next week, we'll worry about that over the weekend. right now be cautious on the
11:50 am
if you're around the waterway, it ooh going to be running high and fast. we're live in montgomery county, derrick ward, back to you. >> thank you, derrick. if you don't already have it. now is the perfect time to get the nbc washington app. on the app you'll keep track and we'll be sending out breaking news alerts to keep you updated throughout the day. coming up next, video you'll want to see of the wild weather and the one rcue youes kathleen matthews: too many nights, i lead the 11 o'clock news with stories of gun violence. and like many of you, my family lived through the beltway sniper crisis. in congress, i'll fight to expand background checks on guns and ammunition, ban assault weapons, and mandate gun safety locks, because too many kids die from accidental shootings. let's show the nra we're not afraid of them; as democrats, as americans, as parents. i'm kathleen matthews and i approve this message.
11:51 am
we told you this storm caused severe weather of all kinds. listen to that wind and take a look at one of several tornados that touched down in florida yesterday. that funnel cloud is big and dangerous. it destroyed ten homes there. a woman in her 90s is recovering after a separate tornado strike. it hit
11:52 am

i'm "storm team 4" meteorologist tom kierein. we're in montgomery county coming down river road and a tremendous improvement that we have seen here since this morning. that 3 to 4 inches of snow we saw right here in this part of montgomery county is just about completely gone now. you can see grass all around the neighborhoods here where just last night there were 3 or 4 inches of snow on the ground. that's what a hard driving rain and temperatures in the 40s will do. just in the past couple of hours the snow has melted. it's caused some ponding of water, but we really have not seen a lot of that in this part of montgomery county as we have just wet pavement in the wake of the rain that did come on through and the rain is no longer falling here. we have just a cloudy sky and actually the overcast looks to be lifting a bit and we have the sky brightening a bit.
11:55 am
bit of sunshine breaking up by later this afternoon and improving news travel-wise for the rest of the day and for the next several days. lauryn has an update on that. >> yes, i do. i have an update on the sunshine. i think that's one word everyone wants to hear. they don't want to hear snow and rain. they want to hear sunshine. i believe we're going to hear that. we're seeing mist, even freezing rain in pockets and going up the panhandle of west virginia. but the bulk of the rain moving off and coming through 695 in baltimore. again, it's lifting to the northeast pretty swiftly at this point. so what we're looking at for the next 24 hours, by noon temperatures moving up. in fact, we'll be possibly in the upper 40s by noon as the rain moves out of here. temperatures are falling tonight. in fact, we'll fall to the upper 20s to the lower to mid-30s depending on the location.

there could be partly cloudy and icy skies. you saw tom's shot out there in the 4 x 4. it's very wet. i've got twitter followers saying there is. icy spots again tomorrnight and possibly tomorrow morning. thursday the temperature drops, nothing we can't deal with. we're back in the mid-40s on friday. but look at this. we're dry all the way through the weekend. look at this. 62 on saturday. make plans for the weekend. 52 on sunday. next chance of rain could be monday or tuesday. could switch to snow. won't talk about that right now. let's concentration on 60s for saturday. looking good, guys. >> derrick already mentioned the snow. i was waiting to see if it popped up on her daryl. >> it's hard not to look forward to that amazing weather.
