dropped by 300,000 in four years and several million dollars as well. but of course we know that dpw has come under fire for issuing tickets when parkers are not violating any of the rules here in the city. so certainly a hot button issue and that will be up for debate and up for a vote tomorrow here at the city council. live at the wilson building this morning, delia goncalves, wusa9. it's a campaign promise she's working to keep. mayor muriel bowser will unveil a new affordable housing development in ward 8 in southwest this morning. the development is located in the bellevue neighborhood. it features 49 affordable housing units and retail space at south capitol and atlantic streets. today's ceremony will take place at 10:00 a.m. president obama's immigration plan is going to remain on hold at least for now. this after a federal appeals court refused to lift an injunction on the president's attempt to defer detore

welcome back. it's 6:39. i'm first alert meteorologist erica grow. it's going to be another one with another round of thunderstorms. this pattern is going to stay in place, by the way, through the weekend, but today is a yellow alert day because the impact will be greater with those showers and thunderstorms developing in the mid afternoon hours. take a look at your current temperatures. it's already 73 degrees in moo fan sas. 6 -- in manassas.
