congress just voted to label genetically engineered salmon; why not other foods? gmo crops are doused with heavy doses of an herbicide the world health organization says probably causes cancer. isn't that reason enough to label? 64 other countries label gmos. why don't american shoppers have the same information? tell your senator, high tech gimmicks like qr codes aren't the answer. we need clear on-package labeling.
a new system coming along and this time tomorrow we'll be seeing a few sprinkles and even some flurries around the area. as far as this evening goes, we're 33 to 37. that wind continues to ease or lay down by tomorrow afternoon the winds come up again and it will be a cold one. 28 degrees early in the morning. your commuter forecast 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. where dry and it's stirring again the hours of 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. where we could see a sprinkle or flurry and the temperatures, 44 degrees and some of you will be seeing a little bit of snow that might be sweepable and impacts on area roads coming up in just a few minutes. silver line construction is pushing west and that's causing some changes you need to know about to the parking situation at dulles international airport. the walkway from garage one to the terminal is now closed and the airport is running extra shuttle busses about every five minutes and constructions are building a new metro station and underground walkway which could take up to two years.
this is mind-boggling and just mind-boggling. the powerball jackpot has surged to $1.4 billion. if you plan to play, make sure you get that ticket before the drawing on wednesday night. while no one matched all of the numbers on last saturday's drawing, there were two $1 million tickets sold, one in maryland and one in virginia and get this, the jackpot has gotten so large now some powerball signs don't have enough space to show all of the numbers. they're just displaying 999. how about that? >> even that's good enough. >> chaos and tragedy below the streets of washington as we take a look back on a deadly day for metro. the agency is explaining this afternoon how your ride is safer now than it was a year ago. plus, a wild animal warning. which part of our area says there's an

395 now connecting directly to bustling communities like alexandria like the mark center and all of the development going on and if you swing it over here and take a look at the traffic that's on 395 at all times of the day, really, you understand why anything that could potentially alleviate the congestion that's in this area is a good thing and that's something that's a positive and something that a lot of people in this area have been looking forward to. >> adam, as somebody who lives right there, a lot of folks were really upset that they did the brac relocation and moved all of those people into the office building on seminary and then built the roads year afterward. what's been the reaction to folks there? >> i think a lot of people are just kind of relieved that this project is finished and that the ramäj=q opened at 1:00 this afternoon and you're right. this ramp is a direct result of base realignment and for people who haven't been in this area and what base realignment did to
our area. it basically took a lot of jobs in one part of the region and moved them all around. a lot of people got relocated here to the mark center, this huge building that sits off 395. this thing was built just a few years ago and it didn't even exist here. you had a lot of jobs that were already in secure locations like crystal city. they had access to transit and all of a sudden they got moved to this area where there really isn't a metro stop. there are bus lines that go through here, but all of this new infrastructure had to be built so that's why this ramp was both controversial and now hopefully it helps the people that have to drive through this area. >> adam, tell us exactly how it will function during the rush hours. >> reporter: so this is an hov-3 ramp only at all points of the day. 395, you probably know is hov-3, but to get on and off this ramp you have to have a carpool of
three or more people. that could potentially encourage more people to carpool in our area which is a good thing. >> great point. especially with so many people going to the mark center that might be a prime carpool point. >> let's hope so, chris. >> thanks, adam. well, we've been saying the fourth-letter word around here, something we haven't heard in quite a while. >> doug, fill in the blanks there for us. >> the s-n-o-w word? this is the longest we've gone in the winter season without measurable snow at the airport and it looks like we'll continue to do that. measurable snow meaning even a trace that's possible. right now, what are we dealing with? we have blue skies and that's a good thing. temperatures a little bit below average and winds out of the west at 8 miles an hour and it gives us a windchill and the current temperature below freezing and 39 down toward culpeper and windchills in the 20s in many areas and it is going to be a very chilly night tonight and storm team 4 radar and nothing on the radar in our area and go back to the west and
the clipper system is a pretty strong clipper and it will continue to strengthen and not a lot going on with it and a couple of snow showers and somewhere around cincinnati trying to move our way. that's the best chance to see any snow from these clippers and they move down and they hit the mountains and garrett county, down around deep creek and for us, it will be as we said, that conversational snow that moves on through the region. future weather, no problem and 7:00 a.m., no issues at all on the roadways. cloud cover and still no problems and we don't have rain or snow coming through and ahead of that clipper we get on the mild side and temperatures rise into the low 40s and that means when this comes through, here we are at:00, notice most of this starting to fall as rain and as the system itself continues to move through on the back side, it starts to switch over to snow around frederick and leesburg back toward northern fauquier county. in the city starting off with
sprinkle activity and switching over to snow on the back end and that is alla that we will get here. we are not expecting accumulation at all and this will be a fast mover. areas of concern, maybe up around hagerstown, frederick and maybemartinsburg is a concern. these are words that won't have to be watched and each if dusting occurs on the roadways. >> 45 degrees tomorrow for the high temperature and 30 on wednesday and this is the day to watch and high temperatures on wednesday, only in the 20s to windchills in the teens all day and veronica is back with the rest of the seven-day forecast. >> thanks, doug. it was a great season and for a whole lot of folks, a very disappointing end. >> jason pugh live at the park where the guys are cleaning up. >> jason, what's the mood there like? >> chris, the guys are disappointed and not just the players about the way things ended and how the season ended yesterday at fedex field and
they believe they let the golden opportunity slip away against the green bay packers and once they made the playoffs they had a talent to make a deep postseason run and unfortunately that was not the case. the redskins, one and done. forget about momentum and forget about the four-game winning streak to close the season. the green bay packers put an end to the skins' season at fedex field and today the guys cleaning out their lockers including quarterback robert griffin iii though he's still under contract will not be back with this team all season be declined to comment today. this was certainly a turnaround year for the redskins and plenty of reasons to be excited for the future and it is still too present for these players. >> it's kind of hard to feel proud and you need to let it wear off a little bit. i know we can see the expectations from the outside world, but we still have far greater expectations for ourselves and we didn't
accomplish it. >> coming up later on news 4 at 5:00, we talked about the players that might not be on the roster. we did speak to a few others and we'll hear from more later on news 4 at 5:00. i'm jason pugh, news 4 sports. the game wasn't the only big thing we're talking about today. surprises and big laughs and bigger winners and the big moments at the golden globes that you may or may not have seen on social media. >> all eyes will be on president obama and the capitol. what's in

and alejandro. they're really proud of this body of work. >> so if you had to pick one, what was your favorite moment last night. >> my favorite moment was the big hollywood moment was when you saw sylvester stallone winning for "creed" and this was his third nomination. first time ever taking home a golden globe and just the standing ovation and you just felt it in the room and how excited everyone was for him, and just seeing, you know, an icon get up there and accept his award was a pretty big moment. >> that was pretty cool. yeah, a lot of people have been posting that picture of him from when he was at the oscars back in the '70s with the one today. i caught that bit with ricky gervais saying the show could probably be about 30 minutes long and not three hours. what do you think of the job that he did? >> you know, he's very -- he's very edgy, but it's fun, and as long as people are laughing and having a good time then i think
he's done a great job. >> all right. liz hernandez, thank you so much, liz. >> all righty. three weeks to go until the first presidential primary, first at 4:00, the shifting poll numbers that are making for an exciting race for the finish. >> a sudden shift toward winter as the week gets off to a bone-chilling start, storm team 4 is being troising what's next and it could in
