we're in the low 50s this morning. only in the mid to upper 50s later today. and showers are likely as well. so the daily grade, below average. whomp whomp! >> i don't love that. i believe you. right now we have road work hanging around on eastbound university there near delphi road. the left lane is getting by the paving on east university boulevard. 27 at brink road alternating right now it's slow through there. inner loop at connecticut still has the work zone blocking the right lane here this morning. remember, all of that green means you have moisture falling across the area. so allow a little extra time heading to work this morning. 66 from fairfax county to the beltway is on time. melissa, thank you. donald trump is our nation's next president. and our team coverage continues all morning long. >> up next, we head to new york.
>> reporter: we expect to. a campaign official tells us she's going to come out at some point later this morning and speak about what we now know, as of early this morning, is a trump victory. and this is the thing, as we wait to hear from her, what hillary clinton are we going to hear from today? the people who were there at the white house, they were protesting last night and talking about some of the things she brought out in the campaign, about racism, about bigotry, it's unlikely she'll come out firing, so to speak, with those now, she has to step back and acknowledge that donald trump, a man who she said was thoroughly unqualified to be president of the united states, now will be president of the united states. so we certainly wait to hear from her. who we heard from was her campaign chair, john podesta. he came out essentially and told supporters they were still counting votes, every vote counted, and to go home. here's more of what he said. >> i want you to know, i want
across the country supporting hillary to know that your voices and your enthusiasm means so much to her and to tim and to all of us. >> reporter: so she was actually not at the javits center, she was at a nearby hotel watching the results come in. but we expect the campaign officials to tell us later today the election night headquarters really told the story. people crying more than once. all the long, sad faces that much earlier in the night were jubilent and turned much different pretty quickly.
here's the reaction at a trump rally in midtown, manhattan. >> ladies and gentlemen, the vice president-elect, mr. mike pence! okay, we'll get that package later on. we had our feet all over the area on this election night. angie goff is h we want to share everything that came in. our own team of reporters here with both the trump and clinton campaigns, as you mentioned. we'll begin with chris lawrence. this is after the mood really, really started to change. chris lawrence pinning up a video here with trump supporters that are just cheering and shouting "president trump!" this is after he won the state of ohio, that was hours before all this was over.
podesta came out to address the crowd, before everything was over, and people were sobbing when he said that hillary clinton would not be coming out. and as a result of this, this morning, right now, at this hour in washington, john podesta is still trending. and our own chamari stone described the white house as a scene, people climbing trees, jumping over fences. but he also shared a moment like this. he said others were there just taking the moment national anthem" on his violin near the white house. follow our reporters for the very latest on election coverage. they are our eyes and our ears. and tweet us about anything that you can think of or that you see and your thoughts on america's choice for the next president. #nbc4dc. back to you. all right, angie, thank you. we have a couple points to cover this morning. the possibility of d.c.'s
way to go before that might become a reality. take a look here, d.c. voters overwhelmingly voted for statehood and referendum b passing with 86% of the vote. it is non-binding and needs congressional approval. with republicans controlling both chambers, that is not likely to happen. and two years after losing his re-election bid for mayor, vincent gr his old seat in ward 7. democrat jim justice is the next governor of west virginia. he beat republican bill cole despite donald trump getting 69% of the vote in that state. justice is a cole executive who distanced himself from hillary clinton during the campaign. and now we'll look at the local ballot questions, voters in montgomery county weighed in on term limits. question b would limit county council members and county
69%. prince george's county qd would expand the city council by adding two at-large seats. that was approved by 66%. and you can keep track of all the election results from decision 2016. if you don't already have it, download the nbc washington app. everything you need to know we are putting there as quickly as we can. 4:52. aaron. thank you. >> i was just going to say, eun, we're looking at the weather around here. and we have been dealing with a little rain. a great crew out here at the white house with me. >> you're looking good out there, aaron gilchrist. chuck bell is keeping your seat warm in the studio. >> it is so weird not being on your left side. i keep looking for you guys over here. a little changing up in the studio here. cloudy skies, the complete
sunny and beautiful on election day when everybody needed to get out to vote. today, back to a little november reality around here and some needed rain chances finally back in the picture. it's been a dry stretch around here. your forecast for today, all clouds, could get a break or two of sunshine right around lunchtime or shortly thereafter. but there's another rain chance after that. so take the umbrella. your rain chance today, 100%. not a lot of rain, but more than enough to get you wet if you don't have your rain gear ready to go. liht pennsylvania. this little band of light rain is coming into the city now. so the i-95 corridor will be getting more and more wet with time. here's the high-resolution computer model bringing this personal wave of light to brief moderate rain through here. now we're up at 7:30 this morning, light rain around the i-95 corridor. here's that little break i was mentioning, 10:30, 11:00, noontime, staying cloudy. couldn't rule out a peak or two of sun. and then another chance for wrap-around rain showers with
between 3:00 and 5:00. so two different chances for rain today. one on your way out, and another one likely on your way home. so temperatures today will stay in the 50s. the wind picks up behind the rain showers. sounds like a musical to me. then for tomorrow, breezy and sunny. great weather for veterans day on friday. that's always a great day on the calendar. make sure you thank a veteran for their service. and the weekend, you'll need the '80s leg warmers over the weekend. it will be cold s i love the '80s. i'll break out the leg warmers and the jellies, all of it. we have a closure until november 22nd here on the red line shut down near noma-galludet until november 22nd. the inner loop of connecticut avenue, the work zone is blocking the right lane. that is still hanging around for us this morning. top of the beltway, all of those in and out of town are okay. the green is rain falling now.
