11:16 pm
medicaid trending hard on twitter today. why? it's complicated, but here are the basics. today the trump administration sent out this letter. it says states will soon have the option bam, to kick able- bodied adults off medicaid unless they get a job. no job, no bennys. check it. for an adult to qualify for medicaid he or she has to make less than 12 grand a year. the trump administration says right now these 10 states are considering the idea. you'll see that maryland, virginia are not on there. let's just say maryland or virginia did change course and consider the idea of making able-bodied adults on medicaid get a job to keep their benefits. how many people would we really be talking about? well, here's how many people were on medicaid in maryland and virginia in 2017. now take out kids. they wouldn't be affected. take out the elderly and the disabled, another couple big groups and here's about the number you're left with, about 25% of medicaid recipients in virg a
11:17 pm
but not all those people would be considered able-bodied adults. you've also got to take out pregnant women and states can decide to leave out people who leave in areas with high unemployment. they can leave out students, volunteers, caretakers with kids or an elderly family member or people in substance abuse treatment programs. so we can verify with a washington whamo president trump's new policy won't impact the majority of medicaid recipients. we contacted the d.c. mayor's office. mayor muriel bowser came out against this medicaid change today and said it won't be considered in the district. my verify team is all about cutting through the noise getting you the information you need. find me on facebook or twitter or send the squad an e-mail at

cadaver dogs to find people unaccounted for in the horrific mudslides, the number missing rising to as many as 43. the focus is in montecito where rivers of mud took out dozens of homes. the death toll? 17 souls. the youngest victim was just 3. >> this could continue if they get more rain, correct? >> they're in bad shape. the good news is we don't see anything the next couple days, a couple days to dry out and the same system is heading our way but not as dramatic as what happened out there. we'll start with the 3- degree guarantee. what's the saying? go big or go home? >> or go down. >> went 54 for a high. it was 62. >> you should definitely just go home. >> okay. >> not yet. let's finish this. >> okay, fine. we'll go 68 tomorrow. a live look outside, it is 57 now. dew points in the mid-50s, crazy for january. we'll hold in the 50s tonight, winds south at
11:19 pm
occasionally to 20 overnight. so bus stop temperatures 50s and 60s. it will be warm and wet tomorrow at the bus stop. then we're looking at a yellow weather alert friday, wet commute, may impact date night as well. friday night warm through midnight with showers, maybe even a thunderstorm. after midnight temps will tank big time and colder saturday with flurries. in fact, flurries look more likely saturday, perhaps not out of the question a couple snow showers possible in southern maryland. temperatures, 68 tomorrow, 39 saturday, only 32 sunday, 36 monday and only 32 on tuesday. so once we have the temperatures plummet tomorrow night we'll stay in the icebox a while, another fresh batch of arctic air. 6:00 tomorrow morning, nothing super heavy at 6 a.m. per se but a lot of showers and storms. everybody will have wet roads no matter what direction you're headed to. 62 downtown at 6 a.m., 60
11:20 pm
leesburg. by lunchtime more showers to the east,55 in cumberland. by tomorrow evening maybe a respite, maybe a few showers. this system pulls away. then we have to deal with the cold front itself which rolls through tomorrow night between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. and look at this, even a little bit of flecks of red down to the south and lots of orange, pretty heavy showers and storms, but it's still 60 degrees 24 hours from now and then that rolls through overnight and by 2 a.m. everything is pretty much across the bay. we're still 60 at 2 a.m. this will be weird. the high temperature on saturday will be probably 60 or 57. by the time we get to 8:30 in the morning saturday temperatures are back in the 30s and some snow showers and snow flurries beginning to show up. we clear out and really plummet on saturday in the afternoon and evening. temperatures fall back to the 20s. wind chills will be in the single digits. so get ready. our thaw is over. day planner goes like this. 60s to start. don't say
11:21 pm
january. 64 by 1:00 and really can't time out the showers except for the morning and again late tomorrow night, but i would keep your umbrella handy all day tomorrow, not necessarily a coat. it will be warm. 39 saturday with flurries and 32, cold sunday, barely making it to the freezing mark. next seven days, we have cold for martin luther king day, snow showers tuesday and wednesday, only 29 for a high on thursday. so after 60s tomorrow boom, we're back in the 30s. >> get out tomorrow and enjoy the rain and storms, cool. let's talk about some high school hoops. we can enjoy that. >> yeah, that's inside. it was a big time game between the no. 1 and the no. 2 team in our area, must see tv. we'll show you who won on the other side.

now wusa9 sports with darren haynes brought to you by xfinity. >> here's the best thing i saw today prior to tonight's game, caps coach barry trotz checking
11:25 pm
there. the caps lose to carolina ending their 10-game winning streak. both the maryland men and women took an l. the women ranked 11th in the nation lost to michigan state, their first big 10 loss to a team not named ohio state and the men played the buckeyes and their defense sort of looked like this. they lost by 22 points. luckily the high school game of the night was much more competitive. no. 1 dematha, no. 2 gonzaga, packed house, barely got in. georgetown head coach patrick ewing, you know the dude got in. late in the 3rd tied game. dematha in transition and carson has a sweet crossover and finishes, zags down by only two. still miles dread gets the and one. he had 18 points and then gonzaga, they never trailed in the 2nd half.
11:26 pm
as gonzaga takes down no. 1 1 dematha 71-62. chris williamson was at the park. >> reporter: you had a huge game. what made you so effective? what was working? >> i wasn't really being aggressive in the 1st half. i thought i believed in myself the 2nd half. my coach said be confident. stick to what you know. >> people are down on us. definitely that's a big win, a big statement. lamont peterson is due to knock somebody out. it's been almost a year since the d.c. boxer fought in a ring. he's now 33 years old but ready to fight undefeated earl spence, jr. next week. the former world champion plans to take his welterweight title. if you don't believe me, he'll tell you. >> i don't look at that just because you all say that. a lot of people say it. i would never look at myself as an underdog. i would never get in the ring if i thought i was going to lose. >> reporter: lamont
11:27 pm
you fill in the rest of it? >> there's no if. i will win the fight. the wizards have lost five straight games to the utah jazz and these dudes were giving away m&ms at the game with john wall and bradley beal's face on it. you can't put a man's face on an m&m and not show up. so that was last night and what i found on my desk today, the beal and wall m&ms, i had them, but adam ate them all. it was part of their all-star campaign and i have one word for that, buzz. there's zero excitement about the team and when there's zero excitement, players don't stand out. that's why the latest nba all- star fan vote has john wall ranked sixth among guards and bradley beal ninth. beal won't make the all-star game with those kind of numbers, people. honestly i don't think there's enough buzz around the league for people to even care to vote for the wizards. want more votes? don't lose against teams you're supposed to beat. winning alwaysat
11:28 pm
that's why my one word is buzz. >> allegations of m&m thievery, they're the going to work. >> we saw you eat them on the air. so we know you were involved in the thievery of
