>> all the white stuff around there. they got slammed this weekend but they are digging out of that. not sure if federal workers still off or schools closed but they were yesterday. they are trying to rebound after that massive blizzard pummeled a large part of the east coast. >> michelle: welcome in. no waggers in in sight. we are filling in this morning. we're going to start with bad news on the roadway. the video from this crash that just happened is bad. it will be surprising if anybody walks away. >> tom: we are going to get a live report from craig who is on the scene? -in just a minute. meanwhile have you this on the 95. this is 95 north bound before decatur. you only have one lane open. this is not a particularly bad crash we don't think but it is causing problems.
5:01 am
you can see just before you get to decatur all the traffic is pushed over on the side. trouble on the outbound 95. right now traffic is light at this time of the morning but we'll keep an eye on that. right now let's check weather with kelly. >> kelly: thanks. as we start out this morning it is chilly. you are going to want to bundle up this morning. the good news is once the sun comes up, we're going to warm up quickly. 47 by 9:00 a.m. 57 by noon. 60 at 4:00 and we have upper 60's in the forecast. also a big storm system going to bring big changes as well. i'll have all the details coming up. >> anchor: we continue to follow this news. metro police are investigating this horrific crash.
