yeah, 30s. 37 degrees for leesburg, winchester, manassas and culpeper only at 36 degrees. once you head down to southern maryland, through annapolis, through brandywine, we are into the lower 40s. we're only headed to the 50s and near 60 today. take a look. near 60 through the district. 60 for manassas and 350s elsewhere. -- 50s elsewhere. if you are going to be going to the nats game, it's breezy. it's cool. but we will stay dry. a couple of sprinkles are possible for areas off to the west, especially through the maryland panhandle, the mountains through 81. the rest of us stay dry. the clouds increase. it's breezy. it's cool. our temperatures are not going to warm up much in the next coming days. we're not looking at a big swing, not a cold snap. this is a chilly stretch the next seven days. take a look. we're at 60 today. 61 for tomorrow. nothing too drastic. tomorrow night and friday night, we are -- excuse me, tonight and friday night -- i'm getting my days mixed up. tonight and friday night the winds will calm down enough
that i think the patchy frost will be more likely for some of the colder suburbs. the beltway no problems. 63 degrees by saturday. we do see a couple of showers possible late saturday night and into sunday. 62 by sunday. we get a little bit better by next week into the mid-60s. that's still well below our average by about 5 degrees. so grab your jackets and hang on to them. larry, good morning. >> good morning, allyson. of course good morning again to you at home. looks like we have a situation brewing on metro this morning. the redline seeing delays in both directions because of a signal issue outside of the dupont circle metro station. i want to let you know the buses are running on schedule. for those of you in southern maryland, that would include brandywine, accokeek, oxon hill, everything free and clear in your area. no issues to report. we had an earlier car fire on the outer loop of the beltway at branch avenue. it's not causing any delays. it shouldn't impede the commute this morning. it's actually on the shoulder. again not causing any problems for you. for those of you traveling along the beltway, everything
is free and clear on the inner and outer loop. 290, 395, the bw parkway free and clear as well. for those of you along the 270 corridor, you'll see volume delays which are typical this time of the morning. nothing to be concerned about. traveling along of 66, the same goes for you as you make your way into town toward the beltway. we're keeping a close eye on the situation right now in virginia. we've been talking about it all morning long. again an ink spill as a result of an earlier tractor-trailer accident caused a six-mile backup. this is at dale city going all the way up to i believe dumfries, even past dumfries in some cases where we've seen traffic just crawling to get up there. route 1 is a typical alternate we would normally give when we see delays on i-95 northbound side. but we're told even that is at a standstill this morning. traffic is starting to get by. we have three lanes open. looks like the transitional lane is closed. crews are working and making progress getting the ink cleaned up but still a mess for
drivers. we're asking drivers at this point to add anywhere from an hour to hour and a half to your commute time because there's no really telling when this is all going to let up. our camera there showing you the delays. extensive stuff so we'll continue to update this situation for you on our twitter feed. you can tweet me. use the twitter handle at wusa9traffic. he should have been blown out of the air. that's what a congressman has to say about last week's gyrocopter pilot. >> president obama's choice for attorney general gets an up-
