5:32 pm
billion in defense spending alone. >> it would indelibly hurt our military and be catastrophic to this nation. any additional cuts to the military are absolutely unacceptable. >> reporter: even if the supercommittee can agree on a $1.2 trillion package, the questions still linger if that is enough to hold off any future debt crisis. well, the good news at this point is that so far both democrats and republicans remain optimistic that they will have a deal by next week. already, the defense secretary leon pinetta is warning if the pentagon has to deal with $450 billion over the next 10 years in cuts, automatically imposing another 600 billion in cuts, they say, that that would really make the pentagon's military capabilities and programs suffer to a degree that they have never seen before. >> oh, boy. and let's hope this optimism doesn't fade quickly. thank you. and there is another fight on capitol hill over what our kids eat for lunch at school.

5:34 pm
on as vegetables and i disagree. we need better stuff. >> i would agree with you here but i'm going to play devil's advocate for a minute. >> okay. >> part of the pressure on congress is from the changes coming from the companies that make the frozen pizzas and french fries. as you said, there is push back for the school systems saying, hey, they don't have the money and so their hands are tied. what would you say to them? >> think cost is an excuse. -- i think cost is an excuse. we're going to pay for it one way or another. they need to be great future leaders, we're going to pate for it down the road in healthcare costs and we have good evidence showing that kids with too much sodium get high pressure and need blood pressure medication. our kids and that is unacceptable. we can't do this and we have to get it through our heads that our bodies need good nude opens, we need the vegetables. pizza and fries, tomato paste not going to cut it. we need kale, broccoli -- our kids deserve it.

>> another day of above-average
5:45 pm
temperatures outside. guess what? winter is around the corner. do you remember this a few years ago? we saw record amounts of snowfall in the d.c. area. who could forget snowmageddon. what can we expect this year? the fox 5 storm force is crunching the numbers for us. sue and gary are in the weather center. you don't have graphs or hats on. that is good news. >> reporter: you can -- have hats or gloves on. you can hope. we talked about this last night. >> thank you. >> we talked about this last night and do not think we're going to have the repeat of the 2009-2010. >> right. >> and everyone knows it's snowmageddon. >> the most snow in d.c., 56 inches, 73 inches in the suburbs and that is crazy. i would say for us, personally, it was an easy forecast. >> it was. and you just -- how much did we want to go? >> right. >> everything we predicted probably within five or six inches. >> and that was nice and coal.
5:46 pm
>> yup. >> last year was different, folks. we had 10 inches of snow. we had 10 inches in the city for the season, 12 1/2 in dulles. >> you know what is important about that, too? we don't need a lot of snow for things to get disruptive around here. >> right. >> and we need to keep that in mine. >> the difference between 2009- 2010 and last year was something called la nina and that is back this year. what is lano onia? an unusually cold ocean temperature plume of water that we see in the tropical pacific and is already showing up. not as strong as last year. according to noaa, we think this is going to be weak to moderate and la nina has a big influence on the entire globe. in particular in the winter for the east coast and that is usually predictable. we have had 21 lano onia winters and all feature above
5:47 pm
normal temperatures and below smaller snowfall. >> it disrupts the jet stream and this is what happens over a typical la nina winter. the storm track basically stays to the west of us and the reason it does that is that we don't have a lot of cold air coming down. and even during la nina, we can get into the southeast. when that happens, that creates a storm track to the south and east and we get the coastal storms that we know of as nor'easters. and this will be, this will happen occasionally, even during a la nina winter and this will brings the best chance forgetting some accumulating snow around here. because it's la nina and because we have the pattern, doesn't mean we won't get an occasional nor'easter.
5:48 pm
>> and they can be seen two weeks or so in advance. it's hard to factor them into a long-realm forecast and has a lot to do with the north atlantic and whether or not there is positive or negative pressure changes going on there and gets too technical n. a typical winter, gary, we usually see the above. >> and that is about 15 inches of snow. >> and that is average. this year, drum role, please and that is behind the production. in the suburban areas and nowhere and western suburbs, more likely 12 to 16 inches of snow and that is somewhat below average, a little below last year and depending on the strength or weakness of la nina. the stronger, the less snow you get. >> that's right, and there is continuous la nina forecast the next few months.
5:49 pm
if it's stronger, more than likely, the snow totals will go down and we become warmer. this is the prediction. >> and we put it to the rest of the team, too. >> right. >> we asked tony, tucker and gwen to waveway in and this is what the rest of the stom team had to say about the -- storm team had to say about the winter. >> what we think it's going to be look. >> and we look forward to it every year. >> and that is an average winter. >> yeah, maybe 15, 16 inches in washington. >> let's say 15 to 18 inches overall and maybe, a canadian 20-inch snowfall is possible. that is canada style, of course. >> and that is the outlet. the la nina year. equal chances -- . >> and don't get technical. >> that type of thing. >> he's getting technical. back to you now. >> and feel free to get technical with us or have fun with it g. to and post on our facebook page
