though? >> i do think that's going toau last b i think just the political pain that particularly congressional republicans felt in this one means that they won't do it again t inee weeks. there's either a shocking grand bargain on immigration. i tend to be pessimistic on that, or the president ends up going down the national emergency route. i had someone said that the president believes the wall is hi read my lips moment. he thinks if he's not fighting for it he'll lose his base. not everybody thinks his political analysis is correct ot it doesn't matter. if that's what the president thinks, at the end. day it's his sigture that matters. so if that's the scenario you're looking at this national emergencyaybe the way he feels politically he needs too,ll but i' tell you, he's -- they are in a weaker position than they. we not the -- about the only glimmer of hope i would put for my show on t shutdown business

10:21 am
eto but they won't amount to anything. some areas especially north of d.c. areeeing flurries and it won't amount to everything. the tuesday eveningve could amount to some minor snow accumulation. we're talking about less than 2 fwhches. there could be isolated spots esnorth and that get over two inches and we'll talk about that, but it's a long s t. abou25% of wet snow coming our way, but, again, not today. clouds are filtering in right now ahead of aeak frontal system. we're fairly mild as we continue through your sunday andur temper in the upper 40s compared to the low 40s where we were know snow pack that we have out there. saw some sun youtside apartment will melt and then we'll have ice spots. sunny and cooler with temperatures in the upper 30s and by tuesday afternoon and evening, we had the ryan to snow change and then wednesday is going to be blustery and cold. we're talking about windchills on wednesday. single digits and teens once again. current temperatures out there
10:22 am
right now. can you see mostly everybody above freezing you but still watch out for the elevated surfaces for slick spots. headed near 50. a few passion flurries west and north and it will be fairly mild out there. the breeze will pick up a little bit and the passing flurries because we've got a weak frontal system that's passinghrough the area so that's bring cloud cover and a chance of flurries out there and also bring those winds at about 5 to 15 miles per hour. so your sunday outlook looking too bad. headed to church services and tffee. light winds earlys morning that will pick up in the middle of the day and sunday brunchisuy to mild. local city resorts got snow overnight. much cooler tomorrow. a good ten w degrees frore we'll be today but plenty of snipe and then we stepr into y tuesday. 8:00 a.m. no issues for tuesday morning
10:23 am
and then as we go throughyhe ain is moving in from the west to the east ahead of an arctic cold front that has really cold air behind it for wednesday, so it will start off as rain and the reason this is problematic is because as they la the brine down on the roads. look at this time right now. 5:30 on tuesday. evening smartroutes could be snowy and ice, and we'll continue with snow as we go through tuesday afternoon and evening and getng out of here well before that wednesday morning commute. that means temperatures will plummet. that means that roads could b on the ice side. we might get a couple inches. maybe a little more or less north of d.c. a wet, slushy snow in our area and tuesdaye afternoon o that rain starts, might want to download the nbc washington app to when the changeover
