7:19 am
been hit with a big snowstorm this year, metro is not waiting for it. the transit agency will outline a new snow plan to metro's board this week. metro's biggest challenge is clearing snow from the third rail and yard and on the tracks to keep trains moving. another big problem, passible roads for buses and metro access to help this winter, metro purchased more snow removal supplies. it calls for keeping the system up and running with normal service with up to 2 inches of snow. after that, expect scaled back service and delays. if the city gets more than eight inches, expect skeleton bus service on routes and limited above ground service for rail. this winter look for the dupont circle entrance to close. not because of weather but to replace the three escalators. they plan to close the south entrance in february for ten months. the agency is working to cut that to 8 1/2 months. in the meantime, extra staff will be based at the station to
7:20 am
make sure the north entrance escalators stay up and running. finally, a new staff report recommends metro change the way the metro access service is run. right now it's run by a single contractor. under a new business model, metro would take over all the primary responsibilities for the call center and quality assurance. metro would act as a broker using multiple contractors to provide service. the agency believes leveraging contractors against each other will help bring down costs. now, as far as metro access, changes to that would take place when the current contract expires in 2013. that's the latest as we monitor metro. back to you. >> thank you so much. from d.c. to richmond to l.a. next, the occupy wall street updates. and taking beauty to a whole new level. an annual hair and fashion event celebrating 20 years, unbelievable. but holly morris is live in silver spring with more.

same plot every week. we have rain showers out there and we will continue to see rain move in as the morning progresses. if you have been watching all morning long, you notice this is getting closer and closer. off to the west we have a lot of rain including spots of heavy rain to the south and west in charlottesville where they are getting heavy rain there. let's pull this out. there is the rain. it's definitely coming. there is a good amount of rainfall out there this morning. we had mainly drizzle and mist around the washington area. there is a lot of rain to get through so later this morning and into the afternoon hours we will get that. here is the area of low pressure with the spin in the atmosphere pulling down enough cold air that it's producing snow in western portions of tennessee. as this moves eastward as well, we will get another batch of precipitation, perhaps later on or in the evening hours.
7:32 am
that could produce snow in the mountains and west virginia, places like that. not here in washington, it won't pull in enough cold air for that. a surface map for today, this is what is going on. you have a couple of frontal boundaries as we had the past several days hanging around here coming through. this whole system is tracking eastward, east-northeast. we will trend cooler later today and then definitely for the next several days after today as we will see the highs in the low 50s for a couple of days. for today, cloudy skies. more rain on the way. 64 for the high. temperatures falling during the afternoon through the 50s. we will be in the 40s tonight. then tonight more rain showers are likely, more clouds. it gets colder. overnight low in the 40s. breezy with winds coming to us out of the west. the five-day forecast, a cooler day. a little breezy, good amount of sunshine but it doesn't warm us
7:33 am
up much. high 53. normal 52. thursday 52. friday mid-50s then we cool off for the weekend. that's what is happening with the weather. now julie wright and find out what is happening with traffic. >> all right, tony. a look at route 50 inbound to the capital beltway. not easy for me to say but that is what we are checking out. we will es do the talking for you. inbound to 1 # 7, that's where we had the accident activity with traffic squeezing by using the two right lanes only. fire rescue units are on the scene for you guys traveling out of bowie, expect big delays. again, two lanes to the right that are squeezing by with wham to wall traffic as you travel inbound to the capital beltway. we will update the right elsewhere, 395 at the 14th street bridge the lanes are open. no problems to report as you cross over the bridge working to the southeast-southwest
7:34 am
freeway. expect heavy volume at the anacostia bridges. on the other side of town, this is where we have problems, 267 at 123 inside the beltway, authorities are checking for a crash there. inner loop route 7 accident activity in the left lane. southbound 270 on the brakes out of germantown heading for the lane divide. average speed down to 21 miles per hour. that's a check of your fox 5 on- time traffic. let's head to the campaign trail now. republican presidential candidate newt gingrich making the rounds after a huge surge in the polls. he has been plagued with ethics questions, persistent rumors about his past. joining us is jonathan strong who covers the house of representatives. it's good to see you. >> good morning. >> you have an article in roll call talking about his past and where it may lead to his future. let me ask you, are you surprised by this surge that we have seen with newt gingrich
7:35 am
and his popularity. >> absolutely. it's shocking because he started out his campaign so poorly. there were a number of mishaps early on. he had his entire campaign staff resign in one day which was terrible for him. but the voters in the republican primary are looking for a conservative alternative to mitt romney. they are ruthless in looking for a candidate, deciding he or she has serious flaws and disscarredding them like a piece of trash. >> we saw that with michele bachmann, rick perry, herman cain. right now it's newt gingrich's turn. if he maintains a relationship with his staff, if he is able to raise money, could he have the staying power? >> well, he does have trouble with his infrastructure as you mentioned. the trouble for newt gingrich is now that the spotlight is centered on him, he will be under a new degree of scrutiny.
7:36 am
can he withstand it. the other candidates couldn't. he has a past where i look into the '# 0s where his speaker ship was not an exemplary record. there are parts that were brill i don't want and productivity to it but there were many problems. >> what did you find when you looked back? >> for instance, he was the republicans under him, all of his top lieutenants banded together and launched a coupe to depose him because they were so unhappy with his leadership. he faced repeated ethics scrutiny and had the only reprimand in house history for a sitting speaker. >> we look how the g.o.p. is now in congress and you look at newt grin grip was in the white house. he has a good relationship with john boehner that he had over the years. now that we are dealing with tea party having a big influence, who do you see -- how do you see that working out. >> newt had a lot of dissent on
7:37 am
the right. now you see conservatives like newt gingrich as the alternative to romney. when he gets in that position of leadership, he al lines more with the mowed der rats than you would -- moderates than you would think does he have the temperment and the set of skills you want in a president? they say i think he would be a great president if he surrounds himself with the right people. there is this question of he has a volatile temperment. that's what you worry about with newt. >> when you look at what he proposed in the economic plan -- a lot of them came out when he first announced, but a proposed flat tax is a hot topic among a bunch of candidates. but drastically reducing corporate taxes repealing reforms on wall street. would this work or may it work because it's a stark contrast
7:38 am
to what is in the white house right now. >> it may work well in the republican primary. i think what you are alluding to when you get to the general election, when we have the occupy wall street protests and growing inequality it may look tone deaf when you get into a larger audience. >> does newt gingrich stay there? >> we will see. i predict about three weeks. >> we will give him three weeks. that is longer than some of the others have made it. good to see you. >> thanks very much. >> you can read his reports online as well. allison, back to you. >> all right, steve. thank you. the winners of a huge powerball jackpot come forward. a trio of wealthy bankers. this morning there are new claims that they are not the real winners. we will have more on that coming up. just ahead, this billboard is at the center of a heated debate in indiana.

largest powerball jackpot in history, one of the three has come forward. but there are new questions. are they the real winners? the jackpot tops $254 million with the winning ticket sold in stamford, connecticut. they appeared in public with connecticut lottery officials but the daily mail reports that a family friend of one of the bankers say they are a front for the client that does not want the hassle of his name becoming public. the men indicated that they would give much of the winnings to charity. the report this morning says the anonymous inner plans to invest most of it. >> that would be unfortunate. >> you come out say you are going to give the money to charity and you don't do it, that is not good. we hope that part of the story isn't true. it looks like they aren't very

8:35 am
students. today, now, we have four schools, idea public, booker t. washington, phelps architectural construction and the newest school we have almost a dozen major corporations in the d.c. metro area and we had 55 students interview last summer and 32 were selected to participate in the program. >> fantastic. >> before we get to yolanda, nate, walk us through the process. as you mentioned, more students are applying to be a part of this. i know you have internship opportunities. you have the classroom opportunities. how do you see this helping youngsters. what are you trying to prepare them for and how do you work that out? >> we know there is a big need in the d.c. metro area for students to be involved in the electrical and construction

8:38 am
for youngsters to go right into the workforce, right? >> yes. we encourage college but not every student is going to go to college. and we like to provide opportunities and there really is a big need in the d.c. metro area in the electrical and construction trades. so, our immediate goal is to continue with expansion throughout d.c. looking for financial opportunities, grants, and the long-term goal is to look for and continue expansion outside of d.c. and to other states. >> yolanda, why did you want to be a part of this? >> a great opportunity that i was chosen for and i took it and took advantage of it and i'm happy i took advantage of it. >> great advice for others, not just to stick to it but know that you have a good opportunity there to take advantage of, right? >> yes. >> we wish you both the best of luck. will you be taking more
