>> one of the things you are noticing too, it is just a few degrees milder than yesterday morning so it doesn't feel quite as cold. even with those cooler overnights it doesn't really feel quite as bad. i think our body is trying to get used to it. it is 60 degrees at ragan national. 54 vwi. 63 degrees right now in orange virginia. so it is ten degrees milder in dell luis. 12 degrees milder in manassas. one of the reasons is we have those clouds so we aren't getting the cooler that we usually get when the temperatures fall very quickly. now the light showers you are seeing over central and northern virginia none of that is hitting the ground. but more rain though, farther towards our south. we will see a few more clouds than we did yesterday, so partly sunny this morning and cool, likely going to see a beautiful
sun rise. once again, although not really as many breaks in the cloud deck as we saw yesterday. high temperatures later this afternoon, in the middle 70's with some of that filtered sunshine. i will detail the rest of the work week in my full forecast in just minutes for now, let's turn it over to amanda meadows. >> so far so good on the major roadways. we are watching a construction zone that just popped up on the outer loop. this just got added on to the schedule, here is where you sue the overnight -- kind of might be a red flag. we are go to keep an eye on it. you have only the left side getting by, through that stretch just after rout 50. so as you come towards prince georges county, expect those moderate delays. the west bounds span, stimblocked with the construction zone there, so if you are headed in from the eastern shore, you play run into moderate delays there as well.
no bumper to bumper conditions and no accidents to report. 70 westbound is working in the construction zone, and then speaking of 270, we can see on this lye shot, traffic rolling right along, head lights coming toward us will be the southbound lanes. i will send it back over to you. >> all right, thank you. 58 degrees at 4:43. >> coming up, this is one way to get your point across, why one football coach suspended his entire team, right before the biggest game of the year.

put his hand on her shoulder and stroked her hair and neck while telling her he likes her hair. the instructor denied any wrongdoing, in fact one of them indicated the allegations had been fabricated. the document ended by stating there was a lack of sufficient evidence for o.i.g. to find a basis to conclude that the conduct while potentially inappropriate, rose to a level constituting sexual harassment. the councilman called for this investigation. >> it is absolutely unacceptable for any harassment in our government, and i won't tolerate it. >> but he is satisfied with the findings. >> they took action, i'm satisfied by that. and certainly if the complaints came forward to my office, confidentially they are able to do that as well. t a this time they haven't, so i am confident this has been dealt with. >> wednesday that parent said she was disappointed in the findings adding "it's
unfortunate for the victims to know this can happen and nothing will be done about it." a d.c. fire spokesperson declined to comment when we asked with the instructors are now stations or if they will return. to the positions at the tray training academy. abc 7news. >> 4:48 and on to a developing story, the first for a new chief financial officer for the district is apparently over. after seven months of considering candidates d.c. mayor vincent gray is expected to introduce his nominee today. the washington pot reports he is jeffery dewitt who is now the city finance director. >> a few more people face criminal charges this morning. arielle adams are in custody and both are charged in the abduction of 18-year-old kenny diaz. investigators say samuels

school, currently 58 degrees. so it's not too cold, and one reason is we do have clouteds that have moved in. i did see observation of a little bit of light rain, but i think overall, anything that does fall from this upper level system will be over central virginia, maybe even securitying southern maryland. it is all associated with this upper level low. as it continues to move offshore, i think we will see more sunshine. still a light jacket may not be a bad idea, sun rise not until 7:00 this morning. that afternoon, 74 to 77 degrees. overnight we will see more clouds and tomorrow morning we will start off with clouds about 74 degrees. and here is that great weekend forecast on our seven day, saturday and sunday, both looking pretty good. and temperatures in the middle 70's. amanda meadows joins us now. >> yes, friday eave, we all love our thursdays around here. the weekend looks good. we do have a couple of
construction spots and a water main break reported in northwest dc. you can see police on scene, they have that area roped off, now this is a water main break on water street. this is going to be near where water and irving intersect, you can see those roadways are wet. we have that roadway shut down northbound. so you may want to avoided it. luckily it is a second day street. we also have construction, a live camera that shows us along the wealth way, you have that bright arrow. it will be an orange arrow right below that geico symbol, then you have those cones in that right lane. so only the two left lanes on the outer loop. for now i will send it back to you. >> 4:52. >> that's just fine. >> an extra hour added to the day. >> all right, this small house
former home is $500,000. >> this was the bedroom that he was in when he was a young teenager. >> all i can think about is how he was probably an unhappy youth. his parents got divorced. there's even a piece missing from the warm, and we are told that's where corbin put his fist through it. >> still months away from a decision on who will build maryland's 6th casino, but we know what one proposal looks like. renditions of an $800 million resort. restaurants, and shopping. two other sites are also in the running. the condition could make the decision by the end of the year. that's 57 degrees out there.
