steve? >> doreen, thanks. president obama said stopping that plan is contrary to who we are. republicans have to stop their objection, the world is watching and promising a veto. republicans on the hill say they'll go ahead to a formal effort to block the obama refugee plan that they say leaves america more wide open to an attack by isis. >> reporter: after the police raid near paris overnight that was aimed at the alleged mastermind of the paris attacks. the obama plan to bring 10,000 syrian refugees to the u.s. faced a new obstacle. the republican-led house will vote tomorrow to demand tighter screening. >> it would mean a pause in the program until we can be certain beyond any doubt that those coming here are not a threat. >> apparently they're scared of widows and orphans. >> reporter: slamming republicans, president obama said each refugee in his program would get months of security checks by agencies including the cia. >> the backgrounds of these individuals as well as what

should help syrian refugees is splitting the nation and one community is welcoming them with open arms and that is good news for a syrian that lives there and fears for the life of her family. david culver has that story coming up in the next half hour. >> our top story is the weather and we have nasty stuff headed our way and a big storm hitting the middle of the country hard right now. strong wins and heavy rains swept across iowa today and the same storms knocked out power and damaged buildings in arkansas. some businesses even had to shut down. doug, is this thing coming our way? >> it is coming our way, jim, but we're not going to see anything like what they've seen out west. this was a monster of a storm across the plains and mountains of colorado and across the mississippi valley. for us, it will just mean rain, but we are talking about heavy rain and it comes during the morning rush and some of the worst possible times. take a look at the radar and we have the loudoun county area around leesburg and right along the beltway and i'll do a zoom here and you can see what i'm

the winchester area and plenty of clouds and yes, we have showers moving on through and most of this is very light rain and you can see it along the potomac here and over toward poolsville and in through montgomery county and toward the bethesda area and we'll zoom on in and i'll show you the areas most affected and right around one of the best areas of traffic on 495, the american lincoln bridge. there's bethesda and let's zoom into this area because again, this is one of the worst possible areas of 495 and we are seeing that rain right around tyson's corner and right through 495 and the g.w. parkway, all of which have experienced big-time traffic earlier this evening and now, showing the rabe that we have and this is what's moving our way and this is the front. watch here, the yellows here and watch them fade out as they move off toward the east. that's good news. that means we're not going to be seeing severe weather in the region and what we will be seeing is the potential for heavy rain and possible tornado just to the south of atlanta
over the next hour and that whole system moves our way as rain during the day tomorrow. tomorrow, shower activity and it's 5:00 tomorrow morning that we really start to see it moving in. no matter what time you're getting up for the morning rush, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, you're going to be seeing the rain. this is the latest computer model that we have and this is brand new here, and i haven't even taken a look at it here over the last hour and look at noon, you can still see shower activity with heavier showers coming through and by 3:00, notice the potential for stronger, heavier downpours right on through the 3:00 hour and we'll see them push through here and then we see some clearing conditions and much cooler conditions, too. so the rainfall intensity tonight, take the little umbrella and tomorrow it's the big umbrella and we're talking rain and rather breezy conditions and that big up brelal be a must. at the bus stop tomorrow morning and that's when we'll see the probl problem. 63 degrees and good idea, take

more to resolve transportation issues. >> it's very hard to get to where you're going sometimes if you're stuck in traffic, two hours is not enough. >> reporter: certainly something northern virginia leaders have identified. take a look at this graphic that explains it all. 5% of commuters, 12% take the bus. 78% are in a car or ride a motorcycle. the rest ride the rails, walk or bike. >> the idea is to capture everyone around metro's silver line. they can walk or take the train wherever they need to go. a life without a car in northern virginia. hard to envision, but sounds like a welcome solution for many. and back now live as everyone tries to get home tonight. we have much more on this new transportation plan from the northern virginia transportation authority it's in the nbc washington app.

going to be very impactful and that's why we're calling it a weather alert day and right on through tomorrow and right on your thursday and frequent updates on the air and push alerts online and a good idea now to download the app and you can follow the radar right there. i've got your complete forecast and we'll take you hour by hour coming up at 6:45. >> thanks, doug. a boutique owner in maryland embezzling millions from a non-profit and some of her stuff is being auctioned off. they have a slice of paradise that's turned into a nightmare. >> every day when we come home from work, we're not sure what we're going to find. >> coming up at 6:00, this couple's warning to others that there's no law preventing the

vacation and party and stay up until 3:00 a.m. it's been unbearable j neighborhood commissioner andy lipski says he hears complaints like these at a growing rate. >> this is extraordinary, but this is happening city wide. >> they've been complaining to district zoning regulators for months to no avail. the department of regulatory affairs would not comment when asked if the owner was in violation of d.c. law. the office obtained by news 4 indicates it is a violation. >> folks assume that the code will be upheld. the zoning administrator is supposed to be doing that. he's not doing his job. >> reporter: dcra has not said if the property owner has been issued violation, but issued this statement. >> the matter is under review and we're seeking to ensure that the right balance is struck between residents and responsible growth.
we're discussing with all parties to try to reach an appropriate solution. >> no one wants to enforce the law? they're incredibly frustrated and rightfully so. they've called 911 and met with dcra and talked to the city. at the end of the day we'll talk to legislation. >> the d.c. council is regulating short-term rentsals and that could take months. in the meantime, dcra has told residents that if they have a problem, call the police? the police will come over and they'll tell the folks next door to stop their behavior, but a lot of times they continue the behavior after the police leave. >> when it becomes unbearable there's no one to help us. >> in the district, mark segraves, news 4. >> we don't have to tell you the real estate around here is awfully pricey and sticker shock puts a lot of people into places that are not quite as large as we would like, but if you want a scaled-down bunky we have you
covered. this is the smallest freestanding house in the district. 252 square feet. doug can't go through there straight away because his shoulders are too wide. as you can see -- >> right. living here requires a creative use of space. a lot of people might call it cozy. here's the big deal. that place comes with parking and that is the winner. two years ago the owner told us that the city's tax assessor did, in fact, verify that that is the smallest house in the city. you want to rents it? $1400 a month for 252 square feet. >> crazy. >> did i say that right? $1400 a month -- >> but if that includes parking that is a pretty good deal. >> good deal. >> doug, we're about to see some rain and miserable changes we won't like. >> it's not going to be a nice morning tomorrow at all and miserable is probably going to
be the word for you, but again, this is not a huge storm, take the umbrella and take your patience. the morning commute will deaf fitly be a big problem. right now current temperature tchs sitting at 64 degrees and it's rather breezy and that will be the case tonight and we'll see a few showers and yes, it will be breezy and there is a little bit of rain on the radar and most of this is very light and most of this is moving into montgomery county and show you what i'm talking about. also southern parts of tread rick county and around urbana and damascus and only around the ashton area down toward silver spring and bethesda and right around montgomeriville as we show you what's going on here. there's the rain and on the lighter side and we'll continue to see this right on through the next hour through an hour in most locations and the big rain is down to the south and again, very heavy rain and a ton of
moisture for this time of year making its way our way. so we are going to see rain tomorrow and it is going to come down fairly heavily. 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. and that's the time we'll see the heaviest rain and showers by 1:00 and temperatures around 68 and we could see heavy downpours and rain ending by 4:00 with the rain at 68 and then the numbers fall. remember, tomorrow, a weather alert day and 53 degrees on your saturday or rather 48 on sunday. monday and tuesday morning in the city we get down to freezing and that means many of you will be down into the low to mid-20s. we've got colder air moving in. >> thank you, doug. we've got sports coming up and our guys will play cam newton this weekend. and some people wondered about his dance moves. some folks like it. colin, is that his name? they think it's awful. what do you think? we'll talk about this. stay tuned. first, here's lester holt and he's got a look at what's ahead on nbc "nightly news".
