5:07 am
breezy and windy. temperature holds nearly steady okay and then drops off in the average such by 4, 5, 6:00 down to lower 40s coldest of the air comes across the mountains. there's a look at forecast and more what's coming our way later. right now let's get to the morning commute. caityln roth is in for erin. that's a lot of words. >> you say a lot of words in one morning all together. that was one -- >> i need a period. every now and then. >> it becomes one long runon sentence it's like we're going for speed here which we normally are. let's start with a view of cameras, 5 northbound virginia prince william to the weigh station here and no problems volume picking up early this morning. rain moved out. roads might be a little wet. probably more secondarys than any majors. and otherwise, 95 looks g let's go back to maps and we'll start off again 95 north showing

5:16 am
>> we're backthon wednesday morning. it was 65 yesterday for a high. no hold on a minute it was 66 for a high yesterday. lovely. we will not be there this afternoon. i wanted to start with we've been talking a lot about this potential for some snow coming up late week and into friday. here's the deal. high pressure north of us. storm system by all accounts
5:17 am
i have a question here with this. how much of the precip associated with this storm system as it slides south of us will be able to come up and overcome dry air with high pressure north. that's question number one. and question number two, is how much cold air are we going to have in place to make this snow and then rain snow mix. it looks like again don't you know it d.c. would be right on dividing line where north and west, this is montgomery count county, loudoun county, parts of fairfax country, and then all you northern tier giza long the northern sections of maryland there it's mostly snow. that doesn't mean it won't be a little mix from time to time. this is where we would be most likely to see a little bit of accumulating snow. rain snow mix right here from just south of baltimore. northern prince george county and northern calvert county and down through the district and further south and west. most of this pink area looking at rain, snow mix and very little if any accumulation on the northern extent this line maybe a little grassy accumulation
5:18 am
something like that. and then down towards southern maryland all rain. okay? how much rain and accumulation too soon to tell. 45 on saturday. with some clouds. 51 on sunday with clouds. so we're not talking a ton of sunshine this weekend. but the trend is for warmer conditions next week it will be very spring like around here. we're talking 60s. maybe even 70s for several days and looking long range i don't see any cold stuff for quite a while. it would probably be later march or something like that. first couple weeks of march it's trending warm to mild. 33 mile an hour wind gusts in gaithersburg. you get the idea here. winds are real strong as the front comes through. once the front comes comes through winds kick up and temperatures start coming down and reagan national is droping a little bit. we're down to 52. it was 56 when i came in this morning. dulles 45 now. bwi marshall is 49. dulles last hour wa
5:19 am
you see the trend and colder temperatures coming in. wind gusts these are rpm model data. future cast 8 a.m. wind gusts around 34 miles an hour. lower to mid 30s. by lunchtime maybe a little less than the 30 mile an hour gusts. but gusting in mid 20s and still gusting through the afternoon and into the evening. otherwise it's just going to be breezy with sustained winds, 10, 20, 25 miles an hour, something like that. rain moved on and skies clear. sunshine today. and all the snow will stay further back out to the north and to the west. and here's your 7 day forecast. going to say 40s today. temperatures will drop down as the colder air comes in. late rain, snow tomorrow night and through the day on friday. then we dry out, warm up. look at next week temperatures respond and we're close to 60 on monday. 65 by tuesday. let's just focus on the positive. here's caityln roth. >> thanks gary what do you think? last chance for snow this week of the winter? .
5:20 am

5:46 am
earlier. we're dealing with colder temperatures now and of course we've been talking for several days now about this chance of some snow in the forecast. and it's obviously not today or tomorrow it's friday. really coming in tomorrow night into friday. high pressure north. storm system sneaking by to the south of us. here's the setup here. and i'm wondering how much of the snow and precipitation are we going to be able to get up into this drier air up into the high pressure. here's the situation, what we're thinking, line of snow to little bit of snow/rain mix along i 5 in d.c. too. it looks like mostly rain, snow mix south of the district. there could be along the northern end of this pink area the rain snow mix line there could be slushy grassy area accumulation and maybe a little on the rooftops and cars, too. don't and too much of a problem with the roadways. and we'll probably be right at freezing for a brief time, if that. so in terms of roads around the
5:47 am
the biggest problem will be further north and west, that's where it will be mostly snow. there could be a little more accumulation here along the northern maryland counties there. too soon right there to tell about specifics with accumulation. we have to see how much precip we get and how much cold air is in place at the surface. no snow for the weekend -- i say no snow for the weekend there could be snow playing late saturday night to early, early sunday morning in some spots. it's early wind snow blow ago cross and no big deal for us. 45 asaturday. warmer sunday, 51. we'll have clouds for weekend and sunshine, too. reagan national holding 52. temperatures dulles dropping to 45 now. bwi marshall is 4. very windy today. here we are wind gusts over 30 this morning by lunch 250eu78 or so we're gusting over 20 miles an hour and late they afternoon this evening winds are still gusting over 20 miles an hour. high pressure building in and it's kind of squeezing atmosphere if you will.
