4:30 am
let's check on your weather now with storm track 7 meteorologist eileen loan. good morning. temperatures are running mostly in the 20s this morning and the winds are light to only about 10 mph, so we have some areas of fog. the towns that are not showing fog have a few clouds tracking through, which is enough to keep the fog from forming. we will end up with quite a bit of sunshine today, but i think we will have a few clouds sticking around or tracking back in this afternoon. we will return to the upper 30s to low 40s over much of the area with even more snow melting today. that will lead to more fog tonight and the next system tracking in will bring a chance of rain for the thanksgiving holiday. i'll have that forecast for you in a few

troops? that's part of today's meeting. "no one that i've talked to and i've been around the country is saying 'yeah saddle me up let's sign up for another military engagement in the middle east.'" the u-s is trying to saddle up more support: from the middle east - secretary kerry met with saudi and u-a-e leaders monday. and even from russia: "if russia is serious about taking its fight to isil than we can see a cooperative roll for it." but the biggest risk - putting people on the ground in syria - remains unclear. from here, hollande heads to moscow to coordinate isis strategy with russian president vladmir putin. i'm tracie potts in washington, now back to you. holiday travel is already hectic. the state department is adding something else to your list if you're flying overseas. it's a new travel warning because of the number of threats. the u-s groups like isis are planning attacks in different parts of
