for, great weekend for travel so physical you'll visit family tomorrow no issues. satellite and radar showing increasing cloud cover that's occurred with an approaching warm front during the overnight hours. that warm front will bring us warmer temperatures later today but it's probably going to be more of a cloudier one than a sunny one. we've had some very sunny afternoons but i think because of the increasing moisture, it will be more gray sky than blue sky. so here's the setup for today. maybe a shower or two along that warm front later tonight although it's going to be incredibly isolated. i don't think we're going to need umbrellas or jackets as you head out on your saturday night. it's just too isolated. and then into that easter sunday high pressure towards the south southerly flow sunshine will be reinforced. a warm front towards the north, cold front will you can get a lot of sunshine. all that sunshine will help warm us well into the 80's. in fact maybe even mid 80's to close to 90 degrees. someone is going hit 90 i just bet. nationals baseball i was out there last night such a beautiful evening and what a game, too into the tenth inning, that was a great win. let's hope the nats can do it
1:05, first pitch more clouds than sun. when you're in the 70's you can be sweating pretty easily so i think a nice break from the sun with those cloud cover but you still need the sunscreen and the sunglasses. we'll have a few peeks of sunshine mixed in. seven-day forecast, 77 for today t-look at those temperatures soar on sunday, 86 and i think we could even easily get another degree or two out of that by tomorrow afternoon. 76 with a chance of a shower on monday as well as tuesday. we've got a front that will get stuck towards our south so that allows a lot of cloud cover to blow over, maybe a shower on the best chance will be south. temperatures warm back up towards the end of the work week. wednesday looks wet, 75 thursday, 79 on friday, so close to 80 yet again to wrap up the work week. all right, that's a look at your seven-day forecast. we'll have much more coming up in our 8:00 a.m. hour as well. annie. >> thanks so much caitlin. all new at 7:00 a kansas state university student is a big fan of dr. pepper. dr. pepp. december she

phases in order to reduce the amount of time that the repair work will impact customers. the first phase will go from today through april 29th. and free shuttle buses will replace trains between greenbelt and prince george's plaza. and two stations will be closed during that time, greenbelt and college park. now, green line trains on other parts of the line will run close to regular service, about six to eight minutes during rush hours and yellow rush plus trains will not operate according to the agency. now, during phase two, from april 30th through may 14th, the work zone will be shortened between greenbelt and college park only so a little less work but as a result, greenbelt will remain closed again shuttle buses running in place of trains between greenbelt and college park this time and also during phase two, metro says yellow rush plus will not operate so just some things for not
green line riders but other passengers to keep in mind because of course we will see a bit of a trickle effect and some time delays on other lines as well, so if you want to look at a complete list of those, you can go to our web site, fox5d.c.com. we're live in greenbelt, alexandria limon fox5 local news. >> all right. thanks so much alex. let's check in with caitlin now. caitlin we saw alex did not have a jacket on. >> right. >> starting off pretty mild out there but no sun. >> no sun, i know, annie, it's kind of unfortunate. we'll have more cloud cover today but plenty of sunshine that will return for easter sunday. it will also be very warm easter sunday. i'll show you that in minute. first let's check temperatures this morning. it's comfortable. 57 at reagan, 56 dulles and 55 bwi marshall. even maybe a light jacket or sweater as you walk the dog early this morning because temperatures are pretty cool and with that cloud cover it will feel like pretty cool through the morning hours but we'll warm up nicely this afternoon. elsewhere we're looking at 54 in
57 in annapolis, 55 in leonardtown. we've got more clouds than sun n futurecast does reflect that. maybe some more sunshine towards our west and that's where that temperatures will be warmer so along the mountains and into central portions of virginia. there is a slight chance for a shower as that warm front passes through later on this afternoon but i think it will be fairly spotty. most of us stay dry and any showers we see should pass fairly quickly. waking up tomorrow morning, your easter sunday, we have lots of sunshine planned. not seeing any showers roll in until later on in the evening. that's along a cold front. you can see some of that light green up by hagerstown indicating the chance for showers possibly a thunderstorm. that would be late on sunday. and then for the work week we are seeing that change in the jet stream so very warm for tomorrow. we'll be back to normal or at least closer to normal, temperatures mainly in the 70's for next week. so, high temperatures today, 77 in washington, 81 manassas, 82 fredericksburg and 82 culpeper but a
annapolis. overnight we fall back into the 60's. it's pretty mild. if you are headed out to nats park today t-i was there last night, fantastic weather, fantastic ending to the game in extra innings. 73 degrees for that first pitch temperature at 1:05 p.m. expect nor clouds than sun but sometimes that helps when you're sitting out there in the hot seats all day long. that's the way it looks for today. we'll have another peak at that seven-day forecast still ahead. annie. >> thanks so much caitlin. all right, starting your business can be hard especially when you have children. but before you discourage yourself from pursuing your passion, we've got an expert here, some tips to make life easier for a future mom entrepreneurs out there and joining us now is owner of five-two-nine kids consignment megan. i keep up with you on social media. you're a busy mom. you've got multiple children, three now, right. >> i have three boys. >> three boys all under the age of eight. >> eight, five and one. >> see, i keep up with you. >> thank you. >> and you've got so much going on but in
year at kids consigned five-two-nine. how do you manage doing all this. >> i will say staying organized is the only way i can put it. >> you basically have to organize the bonding time with the kids and the business. >> y i've learned a lot over the last five years but the biggest thing is to start out like discover your passion and discover what makes you happy and like what makes you tick. i heard a quote the other day that says if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life. >> that's right. >> so i really love that 'cause i really do love what i do. second, you have to -- this is probably the most tedious part but have a business plan. come up with a business plan that will become your guiding life. it will be a pain in the butt while you're doing it but just do it, get your thoughts all on paper 'cause as moms we have so many things in our head. so, get those thoughts all on paper. >> let me stop you right there. so, before you started your
business, did you have a background business? >> i did. i had a background regame. >> so you had a little inside knowledge but i'm sure you had to do a lot of leg work and homework, right. >> yes. >> so, for someone who does have a passion and then their next thing is starting a business plan, what are some resources that you used that you can pass on to other moms. >> i think just getting it all down on paper. i mean, there's web sites that can help you but just getting all those thoughts out on paper in an outline and what is your mission? what are the products, the services that you're going to offer. just get it all on day. >> okay. >> then after that, surround yourself with other moms, business owners, like develop a network for yourself and i am so lucky in old town that i have such an amazing network of women that you can go to. if you're writing your business plan or at the end of the day super frustrated with what went on at work i have a great group of women in old town, they're all business owners and i mean the women ffr
i didn't know what i was wearing so i went to the hive and they dressed me. >> they become your girlfriends. >> your husbands are amazing but at the end of the day they don't wounds moms go through. moms have a lot going on. you know, so it's amazing. also, like get an a team. get a good a team together. have amazing employees that share your same vision but also, you know, for the accounting, for the publicity and stuff like that, hire out. get somebody that is an expert in that field so that -- >> in other words, don't feel bad if you can't do it all. >> yeah, realize that you can't do it all. >> as moms we want to do it all. >> you have to realize you can't do it all. at the end of the day i don't want to be crunching my numbers. i want to be on the floor playing with my one-year-old so it's important to realize that, no, we cannot do it all as moms. we try but, you know, running a business, being a mom, you mou which is my fifth point, find balance. and that's going back to
original question, stay organized, find balance so that you can have that time at home with your children 'cause honestly that's why we're doing this, since they're the most important things. >> yeah, or have them help around the berks too, get them involved with moms. >> which my boys do. >> that teaches them. >> there they are. >> they're so darling. >> thank you. >> and you know, i'm just going add to this because i see you doing this, part of your adding balance is i know you take some time tout as well for yourself and your family time vacation is important to kind of regroup. >> yes. >> and find center. >> you do. >> and so i think you're doing an amazing job. five years, congratulationsing. >> thank you so much. >> any big events. >> we have a party next friday at our store in old town alexandria. it's all day, the main event is from 3:00 to 6:00 but we'll be there all day celebrating so please join us. >> great. thank you so much megan. >> thanks for having me. >> much more success to you. >> thank you. >> all right. before we sit down for our big easter dinners we're going get our fitness on, right. >> oh, boy.
have the ham all the fixings at the table. >> exactly. it could blow up in your face really quickly. >> what are you going to show us today. >> we're talking about metabolism a little bit and our metabolism we think about technically it's just everything that goes on in your body that keeps us living but when we think about it we think about how many calories. i burning in my workout and when i'm sitting around at home. >> that's right. >> as we know, as time goes on, metabolism is slowing down but we have a few moves though to show you to boost your metabolism an few tricks of the trade to help you keep burning those calories not only in that workout but as you're sitting at your desk walking around even as you're sleeping. >> let's get started. >> cool. so the first one we're going get steven down here into pushup position. one thing we really focus on to raising metabolism steve is going to knock out a hundred push-ups right or 10. >> a hundred? [laughter] >> i was like right. >> we'll go for 10 push-ups and then we'll go right into some some mountain climbers. >> okay. >> the one thing
metabolism is raise up your heart rate, okay sole getting you into high intensity interval zones into your cardio and building muscle so the more muscle that you have on to your body the more calories you're going to burn in your workout and out of your workout. so, we like the combo a few strength training workouts -- strength training exercises with some type of cardio exercise back to back. >> so, this is great but it's also how you incorporate food into your diet, right. >> of course. >> what are some things that we can do to help with our metabolism speed up. >> diet wise -- you can take a break: you're going to make me work out for real. >> hundred. >> keep it going. great point. one thing for your food is very important is how much protein you have in your diet, right. of course we love the cakes and cookies and even rice and sweet potatoes which are still healthy for you but the more protein you have in your diet at this time actually takes your body a lot of energy to break that down so we're going
your body is trying to breakthroughs all that protein. you ever heard of the meat sweats. >> yes. >> that's real. so your body is raising its temperature try to break down protein. the more protein you have in your diet the more you'll be burning calories just by eating the protein. >> okay. >> so protein protein. >> protein protein. >> what's next. >> another one we can do, we got my handy band here. i love the bands because they travel well, they're light, easy whether you're at work or at home. you can do a nice workout with it. one thing i want to do is a nice back exercise. so, i'm going told onto an anchor here steven is going to be rowing in, pulling in. he'll get 10 reps just like this. if you don't have a partner or a nice fit friend like myself who can hold onto it you can wrap this around a door handle or some type of pole in your house or even outside the weather is great right now when it's not cloudy. >> maybe around a tree or something ah. around a tree. then we'll drop into jump squats. squat and land and we'll go for 10
>> wow. >> even if you have knee issues or the impact is a little too much for it, you can go a.m. squat and just move very quickly. >> okay. >> the thing we want to get people out of the habit of is úmoving in a steady state, where we're just like one and two. >> you want to get moving. >> we want to get moving, right, rev it up much each time you do the same -- if you do the same workout each time you do it try to move a little bit quicker and that's going to raise that heart rate out of your comfort zone and get you in that recovery zone where your metabolism is boosting up. >> okay and and the good old running in place is okay. >> running in place is fine, that's totally fine but try to make sure -- pump your knees up a little bit higher than normal, pump your arms. >> do a little tracks. >> exactly. >> coach d thank you so much. >> thank you so much steven great job. catch your breath. >> easter goes over the top. wait until you see what's being put into those baskets from the easter bunny. not talking about chocolate bunnies anymore and how will the weather be for the easter bunny when he drops off those ve

52 new york, 47 in boston and any travel this weekend should be fine. mainly clear conditions around the northeast, the midatlantic so you shouldn't have any issues. couple of showers are possible later tonight as that warm front slides trough. i would say in the evening. maybe a shower. however, it should be fairly isolated. i don't think it's a night you're going to really need the umbrella but the major headline is how warm it's going to be tomorrow. bermuda high towards our south will pump in that heat and yes, that humidity so our forecast for today, probably even feeling a little muggy later on this afternoon. 77 degrees, more sun than -- more clouds than sun but we'll turn that around by tomorrow easter sunday. we'll have a lot of sunshine as we sit in that warm sector in between front. 86 degrees for tomorrow. we cool things back down into the work week. temperatures still staying above normal but with more clouds and chances for showers especially on wednesday that might help alleviate some of the pollen in the air bring us some much needed rain. looks like we warm things up there by thursday and then friday close to

and the colors mix together and then once it dries, you have this nice finish on the eggs so the kids really enjoyed that. and then another thing we did we did with these eggs right here was we took a -- just a little container with a lid and then put about a fourth cup of rice in it put some food coloring in it put the egg in there shut the lid shake around and then you get this effect right here. >> the speckled look on the eggs. do you use a specific type of crayons or just regular old crayons. >> just the regular crayola crayons. these were dye and i use the regular mccormack food coloring. >> yeah, food coloring. i find that works a little bit better than the actual egg kits you get a little bit more vibrant color and you can mix colors, too and kind of customize your look. >> okay, very neat. >> for these ones where you stuck the googlely eyes and ribbons what glue did you use. i always have trouble finding that glue to keep it on. >> i initially u
regular elmer's glue for them and then the eye balls fell off so i ended up using a flew gun and the glue gun has held very well. >> okay. >> okay. >> all right. so, did the girls help you make these. >> they did help with some of them. >> so cute. >> honey. >> and these eggs - [laughter] >> did you make these as well. >> i did make those. what i did with these, i actually used the same blue dye used for the bottom of the minions. instead of keeping the eggs in the dye a little bit i dropped them in took them back out and took a brush with brown paint and kind of flicked the brush to get the spots in that is a good idea. that's smart. >> just flick it onto the eggs. >> these were dyed with tea. brewed a cup of really strong tea dumped the eggs in there. >> that's how you got brown eggs. >> aliyah did you help make any of these eggs? which ones did you help make. >> which one is your egg honey. >> this one right here. >> oh, this one. >> that one is her sister's egg. >> this is great. i love the colors you used. let's go onto the basket here before we run out o
