collaborators. >> all right. collaborating to bring a lot of new high tech talent to that area. >> amazing what a few billion dollars thank, david. continuing now to the weather and the impacts of all this nasty stuff we'll see tomorrow. >> it will have a big impact. tomorrow will be a nasty day. witching over to sleet briefly and then just plain rain. but for areas to the north and west, it will be a bigrow, we cold air to get wintry weather and we've kind ofot it. cloudy skies, temperatures have been falling. now down to 43h in the city w the winds s out of the north. already 37 back toward winchestti. that is s the stage for that cold air and for that moisture to move in as frozen precipitation meaning snow, sleet and potential for freezing rain.
nothing on the radar dry. we'll be dry tonight. no issues tonight on the roadways. the storm is well to our south just now entering a virginia. a ton on round atlanta, a ton of snow, a s rarkansas, eve houston saw some snow. tonight we have the cloud cover. here comes the rain and snow moving in toward the colder air and this is 6:30 tomorrow morning. ok at the snow breaking out out ahead of this system. even the d.c. metro area will bg seome snow. by 9:00, 10:00, the snow is picking up, becoming heavier. and then we see the transition over to just plain eastward. frederick down toward parts ofo lo county. but western loudoun back to the west, this sustained wintry mix and even someice. and so winter weather advisory for everybody here in the purple, tt goes through
tomorrow afternoon. and then a winter storm warning for a significant snow, sleet and a iulcccensatumio. this is the computer model that we like the best. t a lot of snow. 0.2 inches in d.c. 3 to 4 up to the west. that is about it for snow. ane then it will bece and that is when we could really have some big problems. amelia is taking a look some of the impact and we really do think that there will be hool closures and delays. >> yeah, not only because we are dealing with a win friday mix but because of the timing. it is movg in during the morning commute. here is where i'm think nag we usee see shool dance lags cancellations tomorrow. this is just a forecast, but is is just our ide of what we're seeing with the weather. a potential for frederick, loudo loudoun, fauquier in that winter storm warning. as far as delays go, i think
that we use see prince william, manassas a two hour delay likely. fairfax, ntgomery, up around howard and baltimore. here is the thing. upper montgomery and part of prince william county have rural areas there. so i think that you are right on the line where you could m see the two hour delay change into a cancellation all depending on how things unfold. but the bottom line, definitely budget ext time for that morning commute. but even the evening commute, we're just dealing with a wet mess out there of rain. >> and we were asked ameut the gove closing tomorrow. we both did this, right? yeah, about a zero percent chance. maybe 5% so we're on the safe ut side,again, we really do think that most of the roads should be okay, d.c. above freezing through this event. 50 degrees on your friday, clearing skies, but breezy. friday will be chilly. the saturday a lot better. sunshine, high tempeture of 52, less wind on sunday going for a high of 51. i'll give you the next couple

a good example, i live in the stern part of montgomery county, you are more in the central part of th county. you could get more snow and ice just about 6 miles away. and that is why w think montgomery county could be delayed or canceled because it may be because othe upper part rather than the lower. we see that so often. right now, we have dry conditions tonight no problem at all. you will be fin driving around town. loved ones should beka a down to the south, a different story. look at all of the rain. and this is jus funneling right on in here from the gulf of mexico. the cold air on the back side of this, the snow and you've got cold a p already ince in our area. and it will just get colder overnight. so as this moves in to the cold, it starts off as snow. i think even in the d.c. metro area. now, we're expecting. in the way of snow, although amelia and i just came up with a brand new snowfall map and we'll show you that at 4:45. but it is snow, ice, rain, we

they hadn'when we visited. there were problems like bedbugs, infestations with rodents, rainwater that was coming in through windows. and yet the landlord continued to get that reliable paycheck, the majority of which paid for with taxpayer dollars, every single month without fail. >> we othank you so much. there will be more on thistory coming up on "nightly news" on oig. th that is right at 7 on::00 p.m. let's get back to me winter sthat will be affecting all of us tomorrow. doug and amelia are inhe storm center. who gets what and when? >> and i just got off wto radio saying everybody gets just about everything. it really is the kitchen sink. >> and when we say wintry mix, we mean inin, freezing
snow, sleet. and every one of those is in play tomorrow. >> and that is why most of the area is underinter weather advisory, others a winter storm you can see what is happening with this, the upper lel of is back here, snow toward memphis, st. louis. for atlanta, it is inches of rainfall that they will continue to get. and i want to show you here, how much of the country from st. louis, from memphisll the way up through cincinnati and parts of n england under weather advisories, wz watesinter stormt and warnings. even flood watches down to our south as well. so againust a mix of erything coming our way. snow, ice and rain earlyin tomorrow mo this is going to owe did your durinhyour -- occur during the morning rush. it will be snow in most of the area. by 9:00, starting to see the rain/snow line close to the d.c.
metro area,er some ice as well. ice could be a major factor in areas to the west and that is il why we continue to watch this. that is why again we have the snow forecast inef ct. how much snow? mainly just rain d.c. southward. an inch or less along parts of montgomery county, fairfax county, prince william. to 3 inches around frederick, hagerstown, winchester. and then this will change over to the ice and gets out of there. and 3 to 5 inche b or morek to the west. we'll take you zone by zone with amelia. >> yeah, this forecast really lends its hand to our four zone forecast. and i'll start you off in the ountains, the western most zone and this is where we're seeing that winter storm warning that has been issued by t nationa weather service. so if you are in the mountains, gerstown, martinsburg, luray, a wintry mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain, maybe some rain during the morning urs. for the afternoon in the mountain zone, you are dealing with freezing rain and rain.
as far as snowfall amounts go, you will pick up about 3 to 5 inches. and on top of that, maybe a light coating of ice up to a quarter of an inch of i is possible with this, travel will be treacherous. and yeah we're thinking a high likelihood of cancellations out that way. and we head to the western zone, this i frederick, loudoun, fauquier, you canxpect a wintry mix until about 1:00, 3:00 p.m. we then see rain for the evening commute. some slick spots, so we think delays are highly likely and some cans lapgcellations are po. and the d.c. metro area, washington, arlington, alexandria, prince george's, montgomery, fairfax, prince william, howard, anne arundel county during the morning hour, snow, sleet a rain. not a huge threat for freezing rain, we are talking just plain rain. spots,e isolated slick but we really aren't talking about any snow accumulation as doug showed you, just some wet
roads there. so good news. and then southern maryland, it is a completely different world. you are dealing with rain just the chance of seeing a fewthe.er by the afternoon though maybe heavy rain impacting southern ryland down through stafford and king george counties whereby the time it is all said and done, about 2 ifrnlt inches co and that could lead to some isated flooding areas. end of n by the tomorrow, we will be the fifth wettest year on record, 2018 looking like a wet one. and tomorrow we say hi to winter a little bit. >> absolutely. and let's show you what is happening out there the next couple days. the 30s ures only i tomorrow. 50 on friday, clearing skies. breezy though. cold onfr ay, saturday a little bit less wind, a high of 52. sunday and monday, nh bad w more cloud cover. a front moves through on monday giving us chilly conditions on tuesday. a high only of 45.
