cullen browder started this investigation in 2009. he joins us live to explain what has happened. >> reporter: we can say that there have been incremental changes over the years here at motor fleet. this is the garage right off of blue ridge road where they do a lot of the repairs. in recent months, the car rental moved over. it was back in 2009 during the prior administration we started looking at the motor fleet system. we found many state cars university sitting parked for months and yet agencies were spending millions on cars that really went nowhere. motor fleet has drastically reduced the number of vehicles over the years and is now looking at replacing the aging vehicles with smaller, more fuel efficient cars. >> we have a strong working relationship with a lot of these agencies. we are there to get them the
done with an eye to make sure the taxpayers are still looked after. >> reporter: now, motor fleet ys that an improved relationship with the state agencies with a greater focus on serving their needs is really making a big difference. coming up at 6:00 tonight, we are going to sort of walk you through the political reaction over the years through some of the issues here at motor fleet and i can tell you change in government often takes a long time. >> thank you. right now, terror raids are under way in belgium and at least one fugitive is in custody. his fingerprints were found in an apartment earlier this week and today the missing suspect in the paris attacks was captured in brussels. >> reporter: abdeslam, the 26- year-old suspected terrorist who has been on the run since the paris ta beentun

>> we had least 70 degrees out at rdu. tomorrow and sunday not going to look anything like today. we have the arrival of spring officially on sunday and it is the earliest arrival of spring since 1936. an unsettled weekend. both days look wet but saturday way be the wetter of the two. we could see some sprinkles around on sunday. it looks like the shifting of the rain would be saturday night. watching for a frost or freeze painly tuesday morning but it may just hover around 32. that would be a very, very light freeze so we may not have as much to worry about. we'll talk more about that in the coming days. it will be much cooler late week, next week. we are talking about temperatures being in the upper 107 by thursday and friday of next week. duke baseball about to take on unc at 6:00 tonightment the plays are already out at the field. this is the durham skycam
i'll be live with weather starting at 4:00 that afternoon. hopefully we'll have some good weather for that event. 72 and looking good out at the airport. relative humidity, 23%. the air is very dry. the atmosphere will moisten up quickly overnight tonight and we do expect rain tomorrow. temperatures in the 60s locally. 68 at roxboro and south hill. what a beautiful day and the dew points are low. dew point 32 at the you're port. 30 at fayetteville. we briefly started with the clouds this morning. they moved out. we are looking at spectacular sunshine this afternoon. we have a few areas of mess to talk about. one, along the gulf coast for the stationary frontal boundary taking off thunderstorms, some of which could become severe with the potential for hail once again. and a couple of fronteddal boundaries moving through the upper great lakes and the ohio valley. this fronted will eventually sweep down to the south and east. all of this moisture will be picked up and brought our way
we'll watch for an area of low pressure to develop off coast and move to the northeast. throw a lot of moisture back inland into the cold air. it is quite possible northeast could be looking at quite a bit of snow. we'll take a closer look at that coming up in the next half hour. here is the potential for severe weather this evening. the yellow is what we callen elevated risk. maybe an isolated tornado. the threat is very, very small for that. tomorrow, the threat for thunderstorms shifts to the east t would be georgia, alabama and northern florida that would have a marginal risk for severe weather. strong storms with damaging winds, perhaps some heavy rain but no severe weather. we talked about this yesterday. we will not see any severe weather out of this event this weekend. futurecast, clear this evening. overnight we'll see the clouds build. as we start tomorrow morning, we should begin with either an overcast or mostly cloudy skies. i think futurecast is really underdoing the amount of rain we'll see around here tomorrow afternoon and in the overnight
our forecast by 8:00, feeling pretty good. 60 at that point. overnight hoes will be in the 40s. 48 in raleigh. -- overnight lows will be in the 40s. more cloud cover overnight. we'll have light winds. tomorrow more than, we wake one some sprinkles perhaps, cloudy skies, 50 by 8:00 a.m. 57 here in the triangle. 62 in goldsboro. let's check out the rainfall probability because this tells us the story about what we expect tomorrow afternoon. notice how the rainfall probabilities really ramp up. that is why we are talking about tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night to be quite wet and for sunday, the rainfall probability drop off once we tart the day and very little going on now during the afternoon. both days will be rather chilly but it's quick warm-up. 70s by wednesday. upper 70s to near 80 thursday and friday and flirting with freezing on tuesday morning. it may not be all that bad. >> it will feel bad but it

coloring is personal to you. >> it is also a way to express your own creativity. also, get yourself some quality pencils. >> reporter: dr. alan mack. >> i like to doodle, not necessarily color but now, maybe i'll do that. >> i liked to color back in the day. >> you have colorful maps in there. >> i love drawing and getting creative. it is a relaxing thing even though our job can be stressful. theps. around here, nothing stressful about our weather today. looking oh, so fine but if you are a fa the cold weather, let's go out west and look at loveland, colorado and and unfortunately lynda is not here to talk about it. snow is finally falling in loveland. many people headed to the ski area there to enjoy the snow. they got more than two feet of snow in the last couple of days, which is more than the town had in the last two months.
around for a couple of days as warmer weather is set to return in the next week. even our mountains are expecting a little bit of snow this weekend during the day on sunday. let's look at the numbers first and then we'll dive into what is happening nationwide. we should be in the 50s and 60s tomorrow. so jackets would be in order to the day on saturday and also on sunday. not quite as warm and not write at all over the weekend. so what is growing on. let's put the jet stream to the map and the storm system we are watching for the weekend is coming together. we have energy to the south and west an little pieces are moving along the gulf coast helping to develop these showers and storms. this is the main energy we'll watch for the weekend. it is an upper level low that will dive down to the south and east and deliver a cold front and help that area of low pressure develop off the coast, track to the northeast and bring a lot of moisture to north carolina and also to the northeast producing snow across new england. we'll look at the snow potential coming up. it is big thunderstorms with the potential for hail. snow falling across the plains. there are no winter weather
there are some advisories in effect. freeze warnings and freeze watches for parts of missouri getting into oklahoma and also arkansas. the potential is for temperatures in the mid-20s about 30 in this region. the growing season is just starting and they are already getting freeze warning as cross the area. things are starting to bloom like they are around here so this is going to damage what has already started to blossom. there is some activity in denver. 27 their current temperature. and you jump out of the system and you head into the warm are air with 57 in atlanta. 72 out at rdu. this is futurecast. as we go through time, we expect the clouds to develop around here overnight. tomorrow more than, we anticipate waking up to either overcast or mostly cloudy skies. i believe futurecast is underdoing the coverage of rain we'll see around here during the afternoon tomorrow. we'll see the rain continue overnight saturday into sunday morning as you see here and then has that area of low pressure starts to crank up offshore and move to the northeast, we'll be left with
verile rain. all that blue you see is snow that will occur and you are talking about philadelphia getting up to new york city and newark. let's take a look at the snowfall potential. our mountains could be looking at a little bit of snow. maybe between 3 and 6 inches in the higher elevations. up to the northeast, maybe up to 1/2 a foot. if you are heading up to the northeast, be prepared for some delays especially flying into the major cities. 60 for us this evening. 48 overnight. for the planner tomorrow, do not expect sunshine. do not expect it to be warm. expect some rain especially in the afternoon. temperatures will hover in the 50s t will be cooler on sunday, upper 40s to perhaps mid-50s with about 51 in the triangle with a smaller chance for rain. monday, tuesday, wednesday of next week look absolutely gorgeous.
but next week ends warm. 708 thursday. 78 on friday. that morning low on tuesday we were worried about maybe seeing a harder freeze, maybe now just around 32 which would be a light freeze so things that are blooming may not be debbi jarvised. >> for the farmers, that is good news. unc and duke are getting ready for round two in the ncaa tournament. >> mandy mitchell is following

it was 36 years ago today that he was hired to coach the blue devils. it turned out to be a great decision to both sides. to put into perspective just how long coach k has been at duke, we asked his player to picture the year 1980. >> i don't really remember the '90s. i was born in '95 so it seems like it was a really lop time ago. >> black and white definitely. for me, black and white. >> no, it wasn't black and white on march 18th, 1980. >> reporter: the name isn't as big a stumper 36 years and national championships late jordan i never would have realized all the great things that would happen for us as a program. but again, when you are with really good people in a good neighborhood like the acc, stuff happens and thank goodness most it was has been great stuff for us.

to beat florida gulf coast. carolina is 32-1 now maying ncaa tournament games in north carolina. >> in a neutral site game to have the crowd be heavily tilted in your favor kind of turns it into almost like a home game for us. so it is good to have our carolina faithful behind us and hopefully we give them something to cheer about like we did in the second half as opposed to the first half. >> kind after neutral site but still here in the triangle. later in sports, the tarheels discuss how they plan to use the way they played in the first half last night moving forward in the tournament. it was only a one-point game at half time. so close. >> ncaa tournaments. thank you for joining us here at 4:00. >> the news continues on wral at 5:00. right now on wral, an hours long raid in belgium leads to the arrest of a man wanted in connection to the november paris attack joz how north carolinians are helping people
