5:17 am
we're going to be dealing with that for another couple of hours. there is your next batch of rain getting organized out to the west of the monday trains. that will be making its way eastward and we'll get another band of -- oh, hey, i don't know where to go. another band of precipitation coming through later on. there is a band of low pressure that will sweep new later on today so we have to keep the chance of showers in the forecast through the day today although it will not be raining constantly all day long. you might see a little sun, in fact. let's talk about what is happening out to the west with a wind advisory. not here in the washington area but out to our west for this morning. 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. tonight. wind could gust up to 50 miles per hour out there. here, close are to home, we could see our winds gust up to about 35 miles per hour this afternoon and this evening as that whole storm system gets moving through here and then pushed out of the region. current temperatures are quite mild. we are now at 60 degrees here

5:19 am
good. it will be cool, 56 degrees. that is actually normal. it is one degree above normal. i think it will still be a little bit breezy but friday, saturday and sunday look great. sunny to partly sunny skies. highs in the low to mid-60s for the three days. that will be really good. that is a look at what is happening with the weather. now, let's get to julie wright and find out what is happening with traffic. i have not forgotten. i owe you a pumpkin pie. >> i'm glad you brought that up. as soon as we finished our last break, a got a phone call from a friend named paul who said why is your refrigerator empty? count tony owe you a pie? >> that's right. i'll be getting it to you shortly. >> just make sure when you are cooking it, you aren't sneezing in it. >> i won't be sneezing in it and you will find one slice missing. >> i got you. you are at speed in spite of the wet pavement eastbound 66

5:33 am
travel season. we do have the numbers from aaa and i can give them to you. it says aaa is reporting that there will be a 4% increase in folks traveling this year. that translates to over one million from the d.c. region. 92% of those, however, will not be in the airports. they will be on the roads and overall, the american usual association is expecting 42 million people to travel this holiday season. so what does that mean for you? if you are going to fly, it means the normal precautions, check to see that your flights are on time. if you have packages, make sure scherr -- they are unwrapped. for folks driving, they are also seeing a price increase. the average price of gas per gallon about is $3.42. that is up 20% from last year as well. and with 92% of people using the highways, that gives you some idea that it will be busy. busy is good news according to
5:34 am
aaa. that does mean that folks are for economic reasons finding some extra cash this year to make those trips to see friends and family here at reagan national airport and at dulles, they have volunteers available to you. some will be wearing yellow shirts. some will be wearing blue blazers. if you come here or need some extra assistance, we saw a woman with very small children and her things toppling over, there are some extra hand here at the airport to help you out. take a deep breath and think about the meal tomorrow. reporting live, i'm stacy cohan. back to you guys. >> good idea. the police say she is quickly becoming a one-woman crime spree. they say within a matter of days, this woman, stephanie schwab has robbed two banks and robbed a female shopper at tysons corner. police say last friday she robbed a bank in manassas. no one was hurt. police are asking for the public's help to catch her. >> the public is instrumental in helping us. we have the vehicle out there.

5:44 am
don't rain on my parade. although it started to. that is what these youngsters said last night. they practiced in a downpour for the 85th annual macy's thanksgiving day parade. good news is you practice in the rain and you get better weather for the actual main event. is it should not be raining there tomorrow. there is a slight concern about the wind gusts that could keep some of the massive parade balloons grounded.
5:45 am
certainly hope not. always one ever big draws of the parade. now, let's talk about christmas. it is not that far away. a christmas tree worth nearly two million dollars. take a look at this thing. a tokyo jeweler unveiled it tuesday. it is about eight feet tall, made out of 26 pounds of pure gold and decorated with gold hearts. the$2million tries tag is impressive but it doesn't come close to the record. last year arab hotel had and $11 mull ontree decorated with diamonds on display. oh, my gosh. can't you just have one of those little diamonds. >> there is some wealth in the world out there. >> that $11 million tree was in the middle east. go figure where wealth is shown off quite often. >> that is true. >> we have a wealth of rain. that is for sure. >> if that was currency, we'd be rolling in it. >> we have plenty of t particularly off to the east this morning. although most of the area is damp with some misty conditions
5:46 am
and the like. a lot of road spray out there. owe slow down your drive. let's start with hd radar. let's take a look at that. show you where the rain is and where the heaviest rain is at this hour. it is all off to the east. you can see it is continuing to pull away from the washington area. really during the last couple of hours, much of eastern portions of maryland were just inundated with heavy rain. that has pushed off to the east now moving across eastern maryland, easton into delaware down to our south. if you are in salisbury, getting a little heavy rain. i think you will get another batch of heavy rain coming through shortly. most of the rest of the d.c. area i'm not going to say is dry. but it is not raining. there arconditions out there. a little bit of drizzle, road spray and the like. still not out of the roads woods. we won't be for quite some time. let's take a look at the sentinel radar -- still not out of the woods. we talked about the complex nature of the weather system
5:47 am
we're dealing with. here is a frontal boundary that will be coming through later. you can see another band of rain forming there and filling in. this is going to be coming new here a little bit later on. we certainly have plenty of cloud cover and then the area of low pressure, that moves across the region. it will bring windy conditions into the area and some more showers later today. here is our futurecast doing a very good job of capturing the heavy rain to our east right now. we'll put it in motion for you. look at this. tucker was talking about this earlier. i agree with him. i think we'll actually get some sunshine later on today. this is suggesting late morning into the early afternoon but it will be brief and don't let it fool you. don't think i'm going to put the umbrella away. later on this evening, there is more shower activity. during the evening rush hour, if there is an evening rush hour today, the green indicates more wayne. after about 8:00, we start to clear out. it is windy and we set the stage for thanksgiving. the temperatures around the region right now, 60 degrees.
5:48 am
during the course of the afternoon, our temperatures will fall. your forecast for today looks like this. some morning showers, then some sun, then some afternoon showers. becoming windy. temperatures falling through the day. winds gusting up to 35 miles per hour. for tonight, still quite breezy. still got the gusty wind. lots of clouds. could be an evening shower. after about 9:00, that all bins to clear out. tomorrow, we have a good a sunshine but it is cool, 56, a little bit breezy. friday, saturday, sunday look great. good a sunshine, highs in the 60s. now, let's get to julie wright and find out what is happening with traffic. >> all right. right now, sky fox is in the air. we are hoping to check in with them in just a few moments. if you are traveling around town, you will find that your lanes are open. if you are traveling northbound 395 here at duke street, no problems to report continuing up and across the inbound 14th street bridge. traffic flowing freely right now if you are traveling the beltway here at the american legion bridge. no incident to report. you will find however on the inner loop of the beltway,
5:49 am
we've got a five-car accident on the inlieberman here at 295, the baltimore-washington parkway. only the left leap is able to get through. now, the crew in sky fox, if we have that shot, we can pull it up. accident activity is where they are on 97 at route 100. the ramp partially blocked right now as you travel on the inner loop. hard to see through the dark. but again, tow truck is on the scene. they had this ramp completely shut down. that is no longer the case. some traffic is able to get by off of i-97 to exit onto route 100. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. football fans, you will have a full plate of touch match-ups on thanksgiving. join us now the sports junkies from 106.7 the fan. how you doing? >> hello, tv. >> happy thanksgiving in advance. this is for me and i've been watching these games for years suffering through so many horrible detroit lions games. this may be the best set-up of thanksgiving day games that i can remember. >> yeah, going to be some great games.
5:50 am
typically detroit is horrible. we saw them explode offensively last week. i was just telling the boys, wouldn't be surprised if detroit wins that game tomorrow. i think green bay is favored by six, six and a half. short week for the green bay packers. i think detroit has a real shot the knocking them off. >> i'm one of the few that embraces tradition on thanksgiving day. i till like knowing i'm going to see detroit play on thanksgiving and dallas play and the detroit-green bay game, first time an up beaten teams that played on thanksgiving day in 50 years in the packers and i think the lions have a chance. we saw the green bay packers strug olympic defense last week against tampa bay and detroit has a much better offense. >> you haven't even mentioned the 8:00 game yet. that is the best game. the niner-ravens game. >> i'll be there. >> the niners have not allowed a 100-yard rusher in basically two years. they've only allowed nine rushing touchdowns in the last 26 games. so it will be very tough for ray rice to do his work.
