10:14 pm
it will impact service betweenve this station, rosalyn and pentagon station. i also means that the arlingtont cemetery station is closed and there are no blue running trains on weekend weekdays. that's going to cause a lot of trickling problems, primarily your connection to silver linee and orange line train, well, that's cut off. blue line trains will be replaced with yellow plus rush trains metro says, but they expect trains across the potomac will be extremely crowdedreme because of this.s. if telework is an option, that might be a good plan. i usually take the blue i had to take another line, i took the orange line. it took me a lot longer.r. i had to switch over to l'enfant plaza first and then come overvr this way. we were trying to go from dm where our apartment is to arg ton and it messed us

10:17 pm
outside at 46-degrees with mostly cloudy skies, winds are pretty call. we're going to see that changet as well as we get into the next 4 to 48 hours. if you take a look at nationalo map you can see the warmer air well to the west into and to tht south of us, cooler air to the north, still sitting there. we are going to benefit from a nice southerly flow as a frontal system starts to move more to the nort mh and the northeast.oh cloudy skies right across thecrs beard and as i menned we areare anticipating some showers. we'll see those starting to develop in the overnight hours. once we get into the first partt of tomorrow you're going to havo to definitely keep the umbrella handy. winds are going to be a factor for tomorrow and mainly tomorrol night into monday and we do have a high wind watch in effect ande that will kick in with thoseh wind gusts at about 60 miles ann hour, if possible, so definitely a situation that bears watching. in the meantime your overnight lowe's into the 40s. kind of nice to not say 20s for once with the

10:19 pm
chase said speed limits should be lower where kids are. she reverse to senior centers where late at night going 41 miles an hour will get you a $500 ticket. chase fought against an around the clock speed limit reductionu outside senior centers.ters >> it's kind of crazy, right? 50 miles an hour in the middle of the night going past theth senior centers or past a recreational field. what we've done now is cut itit back from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. that still strikes me as a reach. so again i want to know, show mw some data. some say lowering the speed limit to 15 miles an hour in many parts of the city is simply too low.w. how fast are we going 24. take a look. we're right next to this bikeis list. we're going how fast now. >> 16, 15, and he's passing us. so we did that not to show that
10:20 pm
how they resume. just to show how traffic can really slow down when it'ss 15 miles an hour. as i was saying earlier after we did the story so many parentsma want the speeds reduced because they're worried about their kids. in my neighborhood kids actually play in the street.tree so they're worried about safety, but the people on the other side say this is just a way to generate revenue. there is definitely two sides. you can definitely understandef where the kidsin are.ids as a parent i'm all about that. for sure.r chase is going to have a hearing about this in three weeks.ks. we'll follow it, i'm sure. > up next, a fight over funding. opponents held rallies acrossoss the country today calling forcal the federal government to stop funding planned parenthood, butt the organization is also getting its share of support tonight

baltimore, 44 at dulles this hour. 45-degrees at frederick, 41 atrk manassas and that's the same at culpeper. and we are going to see the clouds sticking around for tonight and into tomorrow. it will be mainly cloudy skies as well. so not a lot of sunshinehine tomorrow. get a few peaks by the afternoon maybe. we're also going to see some rain showers. as the low pressure system moves along the front that's going tog head through that's going to be the trigger point for us to see some of the rain showers. so 40s and 50s for our overnight lowe's tonight, above seasonal low, but tomorrow when the low pressure starts to move throughh that's when we're going to start to seat showers kicking in as i said starting late tonight ahead of it and along as we move intom to.ov but then the front is going tong move more to the north and the that's going to open the door for more of a southerly flow. s this is going to head off to the northeast and as it does, a bit of high pressure is going to start. itil
