6:17 pm
and that area. as far as we're concerned, roads are not going to become slick tonight. i think it's going it evaporate and the temperatures will fall slow enough so it won't flash flees on the roads -- freeze on the roads. bus stop temperature 20s to 30 wind chills in the teens. wind chills in the afternoon still only the 20s. at the very least you have to dress for at least the 20s. clearing tonight. still leftover clouds in southern maryland. by morning everybody is in -- this isn't even a cold morning. 24 in gaithersburg. 25 leesburg and manassas. 26 in la plata and even 28 downtown. how about that. by lunch time we're still struggling to get above freezing. this is really cold stuff for november. our average high is still 58. and with full sun, it's tough to keep temperatures below freezing. of course the triangle is
