6:05 am
box. they even have sensors that will identify tractor-trailers illy driving through some d.c. neigorhoods. >> i think the cameras are a good idea. >> i think it's terrible. >> it probably prevents some accidents but it's kind of -- i mean, kind of -- i feel like 1948 a little bit. >> making a turn is different. it's -- you have no choice if you're in the mimedz of the enter -- middle of the intersection because you can't back up. >> if you're at a yellow light and the light turns red, shoe get a ticket glrks these cameras may indeed catch you by surprise, flash behind you on your way to work this morning. there's a grace period. you will get a warning in the mail but you will not get a ticket until december 30. but after december 30 those tickets are real and they could cost you $50 to $300. and speaking of money, mike, you asked, where does this money go? well, i'll let you know coming up in the next half-so red ligh

thankfully the winds are lighter than they were yesterday. it's not as biting as it was on sunday. here's a look at the forecast. we'll start out with sunshine but increasing clouds. a lot of high thin clouds actually. they'll thicken up late. highs 35 to 40. looks like mainly a rainstorm coming our way but still some concerns for a little bit of wintry weather tomorrow. i'm have the details on that for you in a few minutes. right now monika with timesaver were two separate accidents on the beltway in silver spring. the one you're looking at now from our sky 9 is on the outer loop before connecticut avenue. the single left lane remains blocked there and traffic is very heavy from at least university boulevard westbound 495 through silver spring. back to you guys.
6:14 am
>> thank you, monika. in the news right now, yesterday the vatican unveiled what is believed to be bone fragments belonging to the first pope st. peter. the bones were discovered on an archeological dig back in 1939. pope paul vi declared the authenticity in 1968. believing they're the actual bones is a matter of faith. animal rights activists are hoping to sink one of this year's macy's thag day par -- thanksgiving day parade floats. they're asking organizers to cancel seaworld the sea of surprises float. it comes after the release of black fish, the documentary statetent the safety and saying the parade has never engaged in social commentary and its mission has always been about entertaining millions of families and spectators. the storm blamed for at least eight deaths in the west
6:15 am
took aim at colorado, oklahoma, texas, and new mexico on sunday. it's already dumped more than a foot of snow in some places. forcing airlines to cancel more than 300 flights at dallas international airport. the storm is expected to bring rain and possibly turn northeast which could make a mess for traveling on wednesday for thanksgiving, of course one of the busiest travel days of the year. >> but howard says tuesday may be the biggest day of problems if you're driving in our area. >> looks like tomorrow will be the worst of it. wednesday we'll still have its share of problems but right now a rain event for the most part. a little bit of wintry weather west of town and showers and rain, even snow showers possible later in the afternoon. by the way, there was a foot of snow in spots of southwest oksamemasystem. very impressive for november. weather wise in fact in oklahoma very impressive any time of year. we have watches and advisories going up in advance of the system for tomorrow. this is all for tuesday. the winter storm watches western pennsylvania down
6:16 am
toward garrett county. winter weather advisories for tomorrow morning into afternoon there from around blacksburg south there, roanoke almost up to charlottesville looking at a little bit of snow and maybe a little bit of ice as well in the form of some sleet and freezing rain. around here expecting mainly rain. a cold rain tomorrow. today, though, by the afternoon partly to mostly cloudy. upper 30s for a high and then back into the mid-30s this evening. so if you're going out if a little football at fed ex field, maybe doing some tailgating late this afternoon, mid-30s with the san francisco 49ers in town. partly if not mostly cloudy and just cold. south winds at 5, 5 to 10 miles an hour. nothing like what they were dealing with for the baltimore -- for the ravens game. philadelphia is 21. 19 in columbus and raleigh. so the cold air is in place in the east for now. but it's not going to stay here. that's why we're going to switch over very quickly if we
6:17 am
don't start as rain, switch over to rain pretty quickly. bethesda, white oak at 19. fairfax 18. 22 in waldorf. 21 north beach this morning. a very cold morning out there with great visibilities. seeing a little light now on the horizon. feeling like 17 with a west, northwesterly wind at 6 and the dew point at 6. that is some bone dry air. if you don't have a hugh made fire in your -- humidifier in your house, really dry inside. so clear skies now but the clouds will be moving in from the west. by 5:30, we're looking partly to mostly cloudy. clouds thicken up tonight. a stray shower -- a stray snow shower out ahead of the main batch of moisture which will be moving up from the tomorrow morning. see all the pink there? that's why the winter weather advisories are out. that's all sleet, freezing rain mix. the blue would be snow and the green and yellow is the rain. by 9:30, just about to d.c. hopefully no quicker than this.
6:18 am
then we can get through the morning rush hour mainly dry. by afternoon, early afternoon, still dealing with a little bit of sleet or mix to our north and west. this will all go over to rain later on in the afternoon and evening so the ride home tomorrow night looks ugly. look at all the snow in new york state back through ohio into the colder air just to the west. the rain by 11:00 really pushing in toward even syracuse and new york, philly areas here. then by wednesday morning, notice the heaviest rains here but we still have wrap around rain and snow showers we'll be dealing with i think on wednesday as the colder air returns late in the afternoon. as far as the rain totals, we showed you the snow. let me show you the snow totals here. the one model pupts this up in hoe -- puts this up in ohio. i've seen models closer re espe as you go west of i-81. clearly depending on how quickly the cold air gets in we'll know but right now a general rain event for us. 38, increasing clouds, tonight 33. tomorrow rain starting as a little bit of a mix, especially
6:19 am
west of i-95, 40. 43 on wednesday as the rain changes to snow showers. so yellow alerts tuesday and wednesday. cold and windy thanksgiving. warmer, milder by sunday. here comes monika samtani and we're not getting off to a good start this week. >> no, really not at all, especially on the outer loop of the beltway. this is live from our sky 9 on the outer loop before connecticut avenue. it's a multivehicle crash now. the cleanup is almost complete. everything is pretty much to the left side of the road. but traffic is coming practically to a standstill over at university boulevard heading westbound on 495. that delay is growing quickly as we head really into the bulk of the rush hour. so be aware of this delay on the outer loop north show you a the red. actually look at that. it's pretty much now back at the 95 interchange. i'm going to say you're going about 10 miles an hour past university boulevard and over to the crash here before
6:20 am
connecticut avenue. all confined to the left side of the road. now, over in virginia and oakton, germantown road remains blocked east of route 123 with an overnight deadly accident. crews are there investigating. let's take a live look in springfield. northbound 95 pretty normal for this tofthe morning. back to you guys. >> thanks, monika. 6:18. here's another look at the question of the morning now. according to a survey, who do most women say they are dressing to impress? is it a, other women, b, men, or c, social media followers? >> facebook friend nicole wrote a, other women. we check out one another. >> we'll have more of your responses and the correct answer in 30 minutes.
6:21 am
6:22 am
6:23 am
6:22. beautiful out there right now. clear skies. pretty on the horizon. sunrise just after 7:00 a.m. look at the temperatures, teens
6:24 am
and 20s.lighter than yesterday. we'll see the high clouds start to move in midmorning and pick up this afternoon. 25 to 30 by 9:00. lunch time featuring a mix of sun and clouds, mid-30s. only going to get to about 38 here in town. lucky ones south to southwest getting to 40. good morning, everybody. sports fans, get to work. then get home and get settled in. tonight is a big night in the nation's capital. if it's going to happen for the redskins, tonight is the night. forget about a six-game winning streak. how about one in a row. that's been difficult for the redskins they get their chance in the spotlight on monday night football. robert griffin, colin kaepernick sounds like must tv, now it's just tv. a loss here and it's essentially lights out for washington. of course we will have plenty of coverage as the day goes on. how about the baltimore ravens?
6:25 am
they did exactly what we've become accustomed to them doing. yesterday winning ugly. they smothered the jets offense. the ravens offense didn't wow anybody but they did just enough. joe flacco and torrey smith hooked up a couple of big plays and jacoby jones caught the only score of the game. ravens improve 5-6 with a win over the jets. yesterday we had really good basketball. georgetown taking on bcu in san juan. devontay smith rivera 26 points, three of them right there. georgetown and bcu in a tough one. markel starks, the swoop to the hoop. he had 23. georgetown wins by 4. finally maryland took a travel trip to the virgin islands to face northern iowa. and big josh layman going up and down. terrapins pull it away late to
6:26 am
win 80-66 yesterday. so some good basketball and some good football as well. that's going to do it for your morning sports. i'll be live from fed ex field beginning at 5:00 tonight. have a great monday, everybody. it's not so great on the outer loop of the beltway north of town where delays begin at the 95 interchange in college park heading westbound live from our sky 9 to the crash before connecticut avenue. it's all confined now to the left shoulder. but it was there long enough to cause this delay. we'll be back with more news, weather and traffic. you're watching wusa9.

good morning. i'm andrea roane. a live look at the capitol. good morning. i'm mike hydeck. howard bernstein iswa out to share with you looking back toward the east. from the west planes taking off at reagan national at 6:29. a pretty morning. just a couple of the high clouds we were seeing in the other shot. we are going to see the high clouds thicken up as the day wears o. cold but a little better than yesterday. yesterday 34. today 38. the winds turn to the south at about 5 to 10 miles an hour so that means mid-30s tonight for the san francisco 49ers and redskins game at fed ex field.
6:31 am
see the high clouds coming in from the west through west virginia and virginia right now. at times partly to mostly sunny this morning and partly to mostly cloudy this afternoon. we're down to 16 in manassas. 18 germantown and reston. 21 waldorf and bowie down to 20 going up 35 to 40. looks like a wet tuesday with a little wintry weather. we'll tell you about that when i see you in a few. right now monika with timesaver traffic. southbound on 295 after benning road, there's a crash causing delays over at eastern here, college park into silver spring. we'll get to that in just a minute. i want to first tell you about the crash near connecticut avenue and that's what's causing that delay. in fact, let's take a live look right now from our trafficland camera. this is 66. what i want to tell you about here, there was a crash nearby in oakton on germantown road east of route 123. that is still there since 1:30 this morning. it was a single vehicle crash
6:32 am
and one person dead because of it. so watch out for the investigation ongoing there. now let's go back over to our maps. i want to tell but this crash that happened about an hour ago on the outer loop before connecticut avenue. it's all gone now but look at the delay. let's take a live look from our sky 9 here in silver spring. wow. that's what it looks like from college park all the way across the top stretch of the beltway. definitely something to consider. using alternate routes. maybe you want to use the east- west highway early enough to avoid something like that. >> that's ugly. 6:31. time to see what our partners at cbs this morning are working on. >> charlie rose standing by live in new york this morning. good morning, charlie. >> hey, andre yarks how are you? good morning, mike. ahead only on cbs this morning, house majority leader eric cantor on the iran nuclear deal which he calls dangerous. we'll ask him if he plans to bring new sangs to a vote in congress. steve kroft is in studio 57 with new details from his 60
6:33 am
minutes report, the tricks mobster whitey bulger used to hide for 16 years. and how the f.b.i. finally caught him. and this, a massive storm system is already forcing airlines to cancel flights. travel editor peter greenberg on what you can do if you're heading out of town. the news is back in the morning. see we'lbe watching. have a great day. 6:32 now. the iran nuclear agreement signed sunday in geneva is a result of a year of secret talks between the united states and iran. some of the negotiations took place in a small middle eastern nation. the nuclear accord is designed to force acran to slow its -- iran to slow its enrichment of uranium. in exchange the united states is lifting some economic sanctions worth billions of dollars. secretary of state john kerry celebrated that signing of the iran nuclear accord and then quickly found himself having to
6:34 am
defend the agreement. >> we will now be able to have greater inspection, greater knowledge, greater restraint and that will expand the amount of time it would take for them to break out and create a nuclear weapon. >> some democrats and republicans are not happy with the terms of e thsix-month agreement. they say iran is the one who got the better end of that deal. well, you have ever been caught by one of those d.c. traffic cameras? if not, your chances are going up because there are more of them on the streets now. >> you've seen these little boxes appear overnight it seems. they aren't just set to catch speeder and red light runners, though. delia goncalves joins us live with details. she's cozying up to one right now. good morning, delia. >> reporter: literally. i love these little boxes, these little silver boxes of joy we call them. however, let me start with some joy and some good news, right. there is a grace period, folks. yes, we're going to be a little caught off guard today on our way into work, even if we get these little flashes but you
6:35 am
won't get a real ticket until december 30. after that, though, it's pretty expensive. $50 to $300. we're here live at the intersection of 45th and macomb. this camera nestled in the neighborhood to catch folks who fail to come to a complete stop at the intersection. you may be wondering like i was how does this camera know if i came to a complete lead time frame as to how long you should come to a complete stop or stop at a sign but aaa typically says a complete stop means that all four tires have come to a rest. now, even though the camera may first decide ultimately a human being will decide. that means d.c. police have a three-tier review system where officers will look at the video and determine if indeed an infraction has occurred. the 100 new cameras will also catch drivers who fail to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks,
6:36 am
block the box or speed through the intersection to beat that light. sensors in some of the cameras will even catch oversize vehicles like big rigs and trucks, cutting through some neighborhoods. police say this program has been a success, made our streets safer since the first red light camera in 1999. >> we've experienced reductions in traffic fatalities over year so we -- that would be my argument that this is definitely working. it's positive and it's reducing the fatalities on our roadways. >> there have been studies that have been done that dictate the higher enter secretaries where we have more accidents as opposed to others and our deployments are consistent with those. they're also consistent with a lot of community concerns. >> all right. but let's be honest. the city has raked in a whole lot of money, thanks to these
6:37 am
cameras. in fact, aaa says a record 91 million -- $91 million in fiscal year 2012. you asked last hour, where does the money go. i did some research some of the money pays for the program in itself. even though some cities use that extra money for hospitals that treat crash victims and for improving the roads, the only thing i can find our extra money goes to the d.c. general fund and ultimately council members decide where that money goes. >> like a deep hole. a deep hole in space. >> thanks, delia. appreciate it. 6:36. capital christmas tree is going to arrive in d.c. today. this year's tree is 88 feet tall. it's an engleman spruce from washington state. it's been on the road for a long time making a cross- country trek. it started on november 1. speaker john baner is going to

6:39 am
next year will cost you a pretty penny more. the u.s. postal service regulatory commission ruled the agency can raise the price of a stamp to 47 cents to keep up with the the cost of inflation. it's only a one-cent hike but the price could go even higher as the commission approves a proposal from the crash strapped postal service. this will be the second year in a row the price is going up by a cent. the hike will kick in january 26. here's some breaking news for you shopaholics out there. the world's best city for shopping is new york city. cnn analysis based these rankings on four major categories, quality of transportation, bargain opportunities, brand variety, and the mood of the city. excuse me. big apple is home to countless designer showrooms and vintage shops and therefore it scored the highest total points. when all of the categories were tallied up, tokyo came in second. london came in third place. but i am willing to do this. i can go to these cities. i can do some testing of my own
