5:18 pm
could be some impact friday morning, in fact, we've bumped up the impact now to the moderate level for friday morning, not because we think roads are going to be bad, but there could be a few slick spots here and there. and it looks like, at this point, the biggest impact will be the fact that the time something bad, affecting a morning rush hour. we do think that snow will be falling during the morning rush hour, but probably over after about 10:00, 11:00. and if anybody's going to get some good snow out of this, it may be areas south and east of dc again. now, because temperatures have been pretty mild, for this time of year, and yesterday 65, most major highways are going to be in good shape, chemicals will work really well, as well, but delays may be possible on friday morning, couple of hour delay, but hopefully not too many concellations. here is our where our storm system is. you have to look all the way out toward the northwest around rapid city but that's what's going to be moving in our direction, and potentially bringing us what we think will be our last hooray. breezy for the early

this was an actual poster used against nixon. it said would you buy an used car from this man. and joseph explained to me, this is probably the first example after modern day mime we've seen. he actually said this poster some damage for nixon, and it really made people think. so, you know, we had a lot of fun with this story, we wanted to take a look at it, and you realize when you are looking at politics today, as dirty as it all seems, maybe it is just politics as usual. >> maybe america is not going down the drain. >> yes, i mean, it sort of puts it in some context, can you feel very overwelmed. social media does that to us, because it is so ever present. >> instantaneous. >> it's been going on for a long time. >> well the message just didn't spread around the country so quickly. >> exactly. >> yes, so it is overwhelming for sure. >> it is reassuring, though. >> that's good. >> not so bad right now. >> exactly.

5:45 pm
back. >> i agree with that. >> kind of a rude awakening. even though we knew it was coming. >> but still. to say it and feel it is a different thing. last night at 11:00 it was still 61 degrees and then the front came through. you probably heard it rattling your windows with the rain and the big wind, between 5:00 and 8:00 in the morning we dropped 12 degrees and it's still dropping. >> my kids put their shorts on this morning i said no, i don't think so and they were like okay, mommy you're right. next week they're going to be wanting the shorts. in between time here we have a little bit of winter's last hurrah that we're going to be talking about and we'll start with temperatures tonight certainly a beautiful evening and looks are deceiving tonight because the temperatures and the wind chills have us into the 30s in the suburbs including out towards winchester down to 32 while dc is at 40. so the next several hours we are going to
5:46 pm
dropping on down to 39 eventually by 10:00 to 35 and to midnight around 33 degrees for another cold night. one good thing though, the winds are going to get a lot better as we go to the next several hours. but what a dramatic change in temperatures. this map shows how much the temperature has changed in the last 24 hours. 26 degrees colder in the last 24 hours at dulles, 28 for martins burg, 29 for winchester, 20 for washington. by the way with that warm day yesterday and all the warm wind, there's some tree pollen in the air. we're still getting gusts over 32 in some parts of the area. at 32 in the district, 36 for dulles. 31 for mannasas. those winds have peek peaked in the upper 30s today. they will get a little bit better. clear skies now, a little bit of lake effect snow coming across the lakes but the storm we're going to be watching is
5:47 pm
in origin but as it moves very speedily towards our direction, it will be able to pick up a little bit of gulf moisture. we start out quietly and maybe even request some sunshine, but thursday afternoon, while temperatures are only in the 40s, we're going to find our storm system approaching, and thursday night, 10:00 or so, the snow will begin to fall around our area. a lot of it will melt initially until things get more vigorous and roads should be in pretty good shape but our storm is going to pass to our south and it looks to us like it might be able to throw back a bit more significant can't accumulation but on the order of maybe 2 or 3 inches south of and east of dc. we have a snow map for you. a generally 1-2 inches mostly on grass and that might affect your friday morning commute. but there could be a spot down here where you get a little bit more. that would be calvert county, maybe even across st. mary's. and you also have a chance kind of in two waves. the first pa
5:48 pm
you might get a little more west of hagers town and a little more south and east. we have to say because of the timing, it likely will have a moderate impact. i would not be surprised to see a winter weather advisory issued for tomorrow and that's because it's going to fall during the morning rush hour. that heavy snow south and east. delays could be possible maybe delays for some areas. friday afternoon will be fine. we'll be clear, breezy and cold and then your thursday looks like this. most of the day absolutely fine. we don't see anything coming in until later at night. the clouds will increase in the afternoon and our temperature about 43 degrees. this could be winter's last hurrah because we go from 41 on friday morning to 75 next wednesday. that's why the cherry blossoms are going to come out later this month. and this very well could be the end of our snow. we start a really significant pattern change next week. 68 degrees on tuesday, wednesday get your tea time. i don't even g
