>> i saw a lot of people biking and running just like it was in the middle of spring. the question is will the warm temperatures stick around for us? >> reporter: we are going to have them sticking around for at least a couple of days. it's really a spring tease. we said make sure you take advantage of the day. so let's take a look at numbers. where did we hit today? well actually some 17 degrees above the seasonal average, we hit into the mid 60s at all three airports. absolutely unbelievable. well above seasonal for sure. but it was really comfortable out there. the winds picked up quite a bit, but also those winds helped to usher in that warm southerly air. right now it's 57 in dc, 57 at fredricksburg, we've got 55 at frederick this hour, 56 at dulles, 54 at martinsburg and 52 degrees at winchester. the winds are starting to calm down some but we still have winds that are a little strong out there. you see 20
right now at dulles, 17 in dc. anywhere from 17 to 28 mile per hour wind gusts. once again those are the winds that are bringing in that warm air so we get an advantage in one department and not a great advantage in the other. those winds will stay breezy for tomorrow as well. so 46 degrees. that's your overnight low. mostly clear skies and very much on the mild side. and as we move into the beginning of the week, the warmer air stays in place, at least for a couple of days and then we're going to get back to some changes and we're going to have a reality check of the season before the week is over. i'm going to have the details in just a while. lauren? >> thank you, gwen. fox 5 in montgomery now where we are learning about last night's devastating car crash that killed three family members. police say two cars collided at the intersection of river road and pile road in bethesda. a family of four was in one of the veh

first shift ever at this department. and just friday, hours before starting that shift, on saturday prince william county police department putting up this picture on twitter thanking her for what would be her service and saying she was a sworn in officer of the department. unfortunately, an office she was only in for so little time. just an hour and a half into that shift when that deadly call came in. and she and two other officers responded. and tonight's alexandra limon has more. >> reporter: the condition on the two other officers were injured. officer mckeowan was shot three times and officer hempen was shot once. currently they're in stable condition at fairfax innova hospital but i am told their injuries were serious and they could require additional surgeries. the three police officers were

we're going to keep it going for you just a little bit longer. let's take a look outside. you know what? tonight is not bad at all. winds have picked up a bit through the day and are continuing to be a little bit on the gusty side tonight. but the good news is those winds have been bringing in all that warm air that you got to enjoy today. so you know, they kind of have a little bit of a purpose, let's put it that way. so the week is going to start very warm and that's because that warmer air is still going to continue to move its way in. we're going to get that nice influx pushing in from the south. the jet stream has moved its way to the north and that is a good thing. so we're going to really kind of get a little spoiled a couple more days. early morning i can't rule out a passing sprinkle or an isolated shower or two and mid week we get a little unsettled and guess what? it's a reality check, winter is going make a return. but in the meantime not talking winter with these temperatures. look at this. into the mid 6
airports. 65 at reagan national, 66 at dulles and 65 at bwi thurgood marshall. temperatures 17 to 18 degrees warmer than the seasonal average. so our current temperatures right now not too bad either. fairly comfortable, 57 at dc, 56 at quantico, 50 degrees at annapolis this hour, 54 at frederick, a little cooler for winchester at 46 degrees and 56 at culpeper. we've had some gusts and a little bit on the strong side, anywhere if 16 to 28 mile per hour gusts right now. take a look it's all coming in from the south. keeping that mild air in place for us and that is going to be the trend for the next couple of days. we do have clear skies into tonight but we're also keeping an eye on this. a little bit of wet weather that could hit us as we move into the early morning hours. but our overnight lows tonight in the mid 40s everywhere. so here's a look at the
not bad at all, once again into the 60s. it's going to be a mild day. that frontal system is actually going to go a little bit more to the north, but as it does pass with that low pressure system moving off to the northeast, can't rule out an early morning passing isolated shower or two. not talking about anything heavy or anything steady at all. we're still going to have that southerly flow moving in. we'll show you exactly what we're speaking about. the timing for 7:00 in the morning it will be way out to the far west and as we progress into your morning commute, you see a little bit just whiz by, another here by 11:00 thand's about it. we're not going to be dealing with anything else as far as that is concerned tomorrow. by midday you'll be about 58 degrees and by the 5:00 hour around 59. and then when we get to the end of the week, a whole different story. by the time we get to the middle of the week, we've got another system that's going to bring us some
cold air, makes itself right at home. overnight lows dipping down into the 20s and 30s. we've got a couple of storm systems coming and as a result of that with this cold air in place, by friday i can't rule out we won't have snow or at least a mixture of rain and snow. 46 degrees in the meantime for tonight and for tomorrow, we're talking 62 degrees and no shortage of sunshine as we head into the fox 5 accuweather 7-day forecast. by hump day we've got rain showers and then we start to cool down and get into the 40s and 30s and friday once again, that's the day to watch forth return of some possible snow or wintry mix. >> i don't even want to go that far. >> enjoy monday and tuesday. >> even though the calendar is changing to march, we are still winter up to march 21st. >> we are. >> it's a little taste of spring. >> don't take my oscar back though. >> thank you, gwen. >> all right. still to come at 100

from 32 feet away, yeah. game winner. they had a time-out. this was with three seconds left. he just steps up, shoots it. he practices those shots all pregame. he actually has a better shooting percentage of shots over 30 feet. he has a 40% shooting percentage. when he's in the galaxy he's in range. you win the game, you get to do the bernie. an amazing shot. it was a great game last night. they came back to force overtime. >> it did break twitter. >> we need somebody to take the best player of the game and i think we're seeing it right there. >> we haven't seen anyone like him. these shots he is making are absurd. >> new tonight, her job is to get celebrities to open up. but tonight we're

guests. sometimes her style has put her in a spotlight like her comments on a recent twitter feud. >> i try to stay off the googler because you get your feelings hurt eight comments in. you'll see good, good, good, all of a sudden you know die! . >> reporter: but the talk titan insists celebrities and even their grown children are fair game. >> i feel like kids should be left out when they're under 18. by their 18th birthday. >> reporter: williams launched her syndicated television show in 2008 and has become an advocate for straight shooting, encouraging viewers to be strong with her mantra "say it like you mean it." it's just really a testament to, you know, have guts. >> reporter: looking forward she says she doesn't have a list of must-have guests she wants to bring on her show, although
counts judge judy and actor jerry oconnell. >> i have favorites from the past but no picture for the future. >> reporter: the talk show host's talents don't stop at tv. williams also has her own clothing collection and is the author of multiple books that have become best sellers. >> so here we are. it is hollywood's biggest night, the academy awards. >> the big thing everybody is talking about is the fashion. we're going to take a look at some of tonight's best dressed stars. this is my favorite. a white and sheer dress. i love this dress. it's beautiful. >> julianne moore.
appeared to be nearly impervious to any attack that comes his way. this new line of attack is one marco rubio and ted cruz are hammering on and hoping to make a dent. yesterday the two senators up the ante by releasing summaries of their own recent tax filings. and this morning questioned why trump has refused to do the same, suggesting there may be some kind of bombshell in there that trump doesn't want to get out. >> maybe he's not as rich as he says he is. maybe it's the case he has given large sums of money to left wing groups like planned parenthood. >> if donald trump is president, he's not going to make america great. he's going to make america broke. >> trump is responding with personal attacks on kruz and rubio calling them liars who would never hire anyone for a job. the donald has attempted to dismiss the issue by arguing he can't release his returns right now even if he wanted to because he's
audited by the irs. it's an argument he's continuing to make despite the irs saying there's nothing preventing him from releasing his returns. >> you can't learn anything from tax returns. it is very unfair. i don't know why, but for some reason the irs audits me virtually every year. >> neither rubio nor cruz has released their complete tax returns. both said they would be willing to if the other candidates did as well. zbl a young officer gunned down on her first day on the job. tonight a community greefs the death of officer
