5:00 am
>> and a live look outside on tuesday morning, 5:00 is time. we are still just below freezing. holding steady 31. gary promises we will indeed warm up. meanwhile the roads are very slick out there. and your car, if it was outside, probably covered in a sheet of ice. keep that all in mind as you head out this morning xing we of course will keep you updated throughout the morning and in fact i think we'll go ahead and talk to you noe now, gary. >> that's what they tell he me. breaking news. >> breaking news. >> yes just clicked to 3 2 here in town. >> yeah. >> couple things, too, i told you --
5:01 am
this happens when temperatures start going up and we start breaking twej happens and happens quickly. gaithersburg you're above freezing now. 34. you won't go back down. westminster, 36 there. mannasas you're still sitting at 32. quantico up to 33. steve inzville sitting at 3 2. cambridge 38. leonardtown 50. again these thames turz going up. probably another hour we'll see a lot of these temperatures above 32 degrees and once they get all about 32 we'll be out of woods and start melting instead of accumulating more ice. won't that be nice. here's the current picture on radar. nothing technically falling or nothing too heavy maybe drizzle falling up and down i 95. again as temperatures coming up things improve and things will be improving rapidly. freezing rain along that i 81 corridor you can see here i don't believe it's going to be
5:02 am
officially above freezing and right up i 81. again once we start to break this wedge of cold air it won't take long and you can see their western loudoun county back down. just inside and outside of i 81, too, there's freezing precipitation. i don't want to you think just because temperatures get above freezing that all the ice threat is gone. it will take a while to melt the ice. we'll wait on this heavier band of rain to start coming on across. once the heavier band of rain starts coming out across those of you that received good amounts of snow yesterday more than 4 or 5" of snow this is going to compound problems because you have melting of all that snow already taking place through southern maryland now with temperature leonardtown and 50 degrees and melting is starting and then you get a lot of rain on top of that and that will create flooding issues for you there. we'll be watching that closely. and as we get on to the mid-morning. right to add insult to injury. we
5:03 am
and now we deal with flooding potential there. and as this all comes out across as dynamics in the atmosphere are such that this will be fairly powerful come ago cross. it would not surprise me if we don't see a little thunderstorm activity later on to the east of i 9 5. that's the way it looks rights now. 48 gaithersburg for a high today. 52 here in town for a high today. it will a while we'll get there. leonardtown 54. warmer for leonardtown because you already sit at 506789 annapolis right around 50 and then down south fredericksburg lower to mid 50s. there temperatures now in city 32. gaithersburg 34. mannasas 32 and leonardtown sitting at 50. real warm down to south. richmond is coming up they're 50. there new york city 48, boston 3 2. you jump back to drier and colder air it's not ridiculously cold. chicago doesn't mind 25 detroit doesn't mind 29 today 52
5:04 am
changes to rain and heavy rain at times. tomorrow, drier temperature 48 cool conditions there and later on this week high pressure builds n we'll still have northwest flow most of week. that keeps us fairly average with temperatures until we get to weekend. and by the weekend temperatures we're talking mid to upper 50s. they'll be 60 around later into the weekend. i don't think here maybe here we'll be 59. we can be 6 0. we can be 60. do you believe me. >> i believe. >> i believe. >> you got to believe. >> hope. >> hope. >> keeping it alive. >> we want to get to school closings right now. >> all right. let's talk about the federal government because they're on three hour delay. and they have the option for unscheduled leave or telework. >> meantime the president's day holiday turn into a four day weekend for a lot of kids a lot of systems are closed because of ice and snow. let's go over the big ones in maryland prince george montgomery

sxwlv i believe this is a live picture of western which has been closed because of a severe accident there that caused a car to burst into flames. there's the car. you can see it there yourself. so investigation underway they've had to close the road there. and really this is indicative of how slick it is out there and the fact you may not be able to see the slick spot it may all of a sudden be upon yo you. you really do need to be careful as you head out this morning. >> holly i didn't hear are there injuries there. >> they did not know yet as ever the injuries obviously we're hoping who was in the car was able to get out perhaps before the fire and as more information comes in i'm sure erin will update us as to what happened. >> rough commute. that's why a lot of schools are closed today and

5:48 am
it's 37 right now. and even up here at ski liberty which is northern frederick county before you get into pennsylvania, or may even be pennsylvania i'm not sure that's 34 degrees and even there it's come up to 3 4 all these numbers are starting to come up like what we're thinking that's good rain is increasing back out to the wes west. it's already starting to comma across moderate rain. this is south of 66 along 81 there and then you see where there's still orangy color that's treesing rain in spots until this rain comes on up and part of this rain's job is to start bringing up to the warmer temperatures because the warmest of temperatures are still down souling of us and as this rain cop continues to track to the north and move the whole line is moving off east it is helping to bring that warm air in too and the system is still way back down here and again ahead of that the warm air is just coming right literally sucked off the atlantic right up into this system. so that's why we're seeing the warming first taking place
5:49 am
southeast. it's coming in at the surface and we have to give it time to do that is right. ice accumulations these are the latest i could find. a couple are from a little after 3:00 this morning and one of them is from a little after midnight you get the idea, right? and vienna cart quarter inch ice accumulation or more, germantown up over quarter inch at .3 1. this is significant icing and i'm so happy we're not seeing all these potential power out annuals and things like that. yes, roads are treacherous. especially side streets. given time with the temperatures coming up percy snril loudoun count gli virginia and they have a quarter inch. a lot of folks end one quarter inch of ice before all said and done. here's the deal. mostly rain this morning. early this morning it's freezing rain. the system comes through and ahead of the front and area of low pressure coming through there ill be heavy rain at time and i believe off to the east of i 95 now and
