6:29 am
30 for westminister, 34 for frederick and 32 for gaithersburg. a lot of areas will see snow later on tonight as the change over occurs. more on the futurecast coming up. let's go to beverly with traffic. >> reporter: 270 corridor primarily wet pavement. a new crash 270, they looked both directions near falls road. i believe what they found is in the southbound sound near falls road and impacting traffic there as you come down out of the local lanes and the main lanes both slow there, too look at that crash activity. on the inbound lanes of route 4 the crash past wood yard, moved over to the quote unquote right shoulder, which is a travel lane at this hour. that is why it is so slow out of upper marlboro. the volume stretches past duke street before lanes breakthrough past the pentagon and onto the 14th street br idge.

6:31 am
information we have from the white house. we have yet to hear from secret service. we have reached out to them. if they pass along any information we will certainly do the same. nick giovanni wusa9. >> this is happening on the same day where a man from iowa who was a white house intruder is scheduled to be sentenced on misdemeanor charges later today. right. millions of people in the northeast are bracing for a blizzard. the national weather service says two to three feet of snow could fall today and tomorrow with sustained winds of over 35 miles per hour. >> mix the two you can expect whiteout conditions in some area. the mayor of new york, bill de blasio, says the storm could be one of the worst ever seen. many more nice canceled travelers are being advised to call their airlines before they head on the airport. united is planning to cancel all flights for tuesday at newark, la guardia, as well as boston and philadelphia

6:33 am
be easy for you to kind of dust off before you get in your car this morning. again this is what it looks like when you are coming out of your house, getting ready to head to work and get on the road. this is what you will see. just wet roads but it is coming down as quit a bit of snow. the flakes are very small so just be cautious, drive slow. even though it is not sticking to the ground it is very slick and very wet. quite a few snow plows this morning. they have been patiently waiting sitting on the side of the road. we'll keep you updated on if and when the snow picks up and when it sticks. >> the good news on whether it sticks or not showered says it is at freezing or just a little bit above. of all the communities in northern virginia lowdon county is expecting to get hit hardest by this snow. >> delia goncalves joins us at one of the commutedder lots to check how things are now.

6:35 am
lot of folks turning up their windshields wipers, preparing when they return home today from their commute and from their work day. that conditions will be very different when they return. v dot has more than 900 trucks on the road. they have pre treated, and they are cautioning drivers to be safe on the roads as conditions change throughout the day. back to you in the studio. >> thank you delia. when the conditions change it is very easy to keep up to date up to the minute by downloading our wusa9 app. it is a free download available on apple and google. you can check closings and delays in your area and put your area as a priority so it comes up first. we want to congratulate our facebook fan of the day. melissa says she should be our fan of the day because sometimes grandmas need a little tlc too. >> melissa you are going to get it. you win a $90 gift card for

6:39 am
roads in the charleston area in route 340-2009 winchester and martinsburg, sticking to the side roads back. that way in areas of western maryland and eastern west virginia west virginia. we -- west virginia. not expecting our problems to be picking up until maybeton. now over to beverly, she's got your timesaver traffic. >> reporter: on the wet pavement accidents slowing you down. the crash between wood yard and do you recall house. in that area where the -- and do youer -- and dower house. trying to remove it completely. 270 south has been the crash at falls road. the distraction for the lower end of 270 although it was out of the roadway and moved onto the shoulder, coming out of gaithersburg, you are slow to that activity. volume delay in manassas in centerville toward vienna with lanes open and on into falls
6:40 am
church and rosalyn. mike, andrea, back to you. howard and beverly are both telling us the side roads in the higher elevations are going to be tricky. >> scott broom joins us. the i 81 corridor and some of the side streets around there you are starting to see serious snow, scott? >> reporter: we have seen plenty of snow out here. came here because howard and allison had been reporting about the panhandle of west virginia. i wanted to show you what they are talking about. this is a little side street here just off interstate 81 negotiate of martinsburg in berkeley county, west virginia. you can see light to moderate snowfall that's been coming down. it is cold enough here 29 degrees, it has completely coated the side street. that gives you an indication of why berkeley county and jefferson county schools in the west virginia panhandle have been closed today. up and down the interstate 81
6:41 am
corridor. typical of what conditions you see. there is not a huge amount of snow on the ground. only an inch a little farther north of hagerstown, maryland. about i guess oh it was a half hour ago. more than an inch, closer to 2 inches of snow up that way. so there is plenty of snow out here. these are long run commuters i call them. those are the folks watching right now trying to make the decision of whether they are going to come closer into the metro area as i turned on to one of the secondary highways here, this is a ramp getting on to 81 now. it is just so dark here in the panhandle of west virginia this morning. but this road has been salted and so has the interstate. so there are slick spots on the ramps, as usual, as you might imagine. but for the most part once people get on a main road they are up there at highway speeds. berkeley county and jefferson
6:42 am
county, west virginia. scott broom reporting live on the dashboard cameras of my mobile newsroom in berkeley county, west virginia. back to you. today everyone will be talking about the winter storm headed for the northeast. but this weekend people in our region were talking all about the polar bear plunge. >> not even a winter storm could stop some people from saturday's 19th annual polar bear plunge. the water temperature was 35 degrees in the chesapeake bay and that didn't stop hundreds of people from taking that plunge including nick giovanni. >> for any of you who have wondered, have a quick listen to nick's experience
6:43 am
and he is our hero. and get this, he took the plunge not once, but he took it a second time. and it was even more the second time around. saturday night's event raised more than 1 bone $4 million for special olympics. congratulations nick, and hopefully he will stay healthy after that. it is time now to answer the question of the morning. almost one in five meals served in american restaurants come with french fries, bread or parsley. alexander christine delay

6:45 am
6:46 am
6:47 am
it is 6:47. we have been talking about the blizzard, headed to the northeast. it is time to see what our partners at cbs this morning are covering. nora o donald joins us. >> reporter: we are also tracking the massive storm, they could be bringing historic snowfall to parts of the northeast. peter greenburg is right here from studio 57 with the major impact on travel across the country. and we are also on your big story. the white house investigation into a possible drone discovery overnight inside the white house grounds. the news is back in the morning so we'll see you guys right at 7:00. have a good one. >> you be safe tomorrow, nora. >> reporter: thank you, you too. let's go to right now. he is seeing snow outside our windows. >> reporter: temperatures are well up in the 30s now. it is not sticking to the road
6:48 am
surfaces. getting some reports to the grassy areas and many areas well north and west of the blue ridge primarily is where you see road issues. scott broom had some snow on the ground, the road surfaces that weren't traded but the crews are out they have been out since late last flight and a lot of them are out there keeping us safe on this day. i want to show you the big expanse of the storm, highway toy to norfolk. those are north and west to washington county. jefferson county, frederick county, virginia. is the only county in virginia under a winter storm warning. blizzard warnings covering long island, metro new york, all of connecticut. eastern massachusetts into coastal maine. we are talking winds over 50, maybe gusting into 70 with one to two foot snow totals. by the time this thing winds down maybe more. moisture moves in from the southwest, as the cold air
6:49 am
oozes in from the north. just getting it to leesburg, and here in washington and northern fairfax county more so than southern fairfax. sleet mixing in. bright yellow there warrenton up to haymarket. dale city. this is all generally light snow with temperatures in the low to mid-30s. so most of the roads, not all but most of the roads are just wet. you see the rain and the wet flakes, sleet going down to fredericksburg, and quantico, stafford, temperatures here in the mid and upper 30s. i'm not concern for the roads right now. but you see the gaithersburg is probably 32. really got to watch up north and in the mountains here, for the next several hours. our better chance in washington for snow to stick will be tonight and i'm thinking a general one to three inches.
6:50 am
temperatures slowly dropping tonight with slick spots into tomorrow morning. into the upper 30s with early flurries and snow showers. wednesday 34 and chance of a flurry or sprinkle. beverly, good morning. she is coming, trust me. >> reporter: that was moved onto the shoulder southbound on 270. that tied things up a bit. now southbound 270 past 28 dealing with an accident as well. that impacts the on and off- ramp from 28 west montgomery avenue to get on to 270. therefore looking at all that activity impacting the on and off-ramp and southbound 270 as well. beltway headed west to college park. it is fairly typical volume on wet pavement. new hampshire avenue west, georgia avenue lanes have been open. 395 north your volume delaake you most the way to landmark. just getting to the pentagon and across the inbound 14th street bridge. that is a look at timesave
6:51 am

6:54 am
