4:47 am
prime minister. his arrival in the country comes as nbc news has exclusively learned that putin was personally involved in the covert russian campaign to interfere in last month's election. news 4 tracie potts is live for us this morning. >> walk us through what sources are telling us this morning. >> it is important to know where this info is m cooicoming from. two high level sources with access to this information are telling nbc that putin was the one directing how the hacked information, those e-mails from the democratic party would be used to either discredit the united states or discredit hillary clinton. and that's important to note because there is still disagreement among the cia, the fbi, intelligence agencies on what the motive here might have been, not necessarily directly to elect donald trump, but
4:48 am
discredit hillary clinton after what's been described as a long standing venn ddetta against hey p putin and discredit democracy in general. >> there have been some reports that ivanka trump will get some office in the white house. >> not confirmed. the transition team is pushing back on that report saying it's not the case. it comes as we've also been hearing that she and her husband may be house hunting here and as donald trump talked about his son specifically running the business after he is in office but not mentioning ivanka. >> all right. thank you. this next story is getting a lot of attention on facebook. i posted it yesterday. on january 20th, 800,000 people are expected to crowd the national mall

president-elect donald trump's inauguration but it will not include a single marching band from the d.c. area. it will be the first time in 20 years that a d.c. public school marching band has not participated in the inauguration parade. none of the bands filed applications for consideration this year. the deadline to apply was last week. but as the saying goes, the show must go on. around 15,000 military personnel from across the nation will be in the district on january 20th. the military is using this 60 by 40 foot map to prepare for anything from logistics to crowd control. righ now their biggest concern is protesters. today, closing arguments will get underway in the murder trial against the man accused of killing nine people inside a south carolina church. the jury may even begin deliberating this afternoon. dylann roof is charged with
4:50 am
confessed to the shooting the defense didn't call any witnesses. they are concentrating on the penalty phase of the trial because roof could be sentenced to death if found guilty. after months of growth the stock market is taking a bit of a dive. the dow, nasdaq and s&p 500 all dropped after the federal reserve said it would raise the interest rate. it will have less of an impact on car loans and student loans. experts say now could be the time to refinance and get into a fixed rate especially because the feds said it could raise rates three more times next year. well, it is one of the most congested spots in our area and we've all experienced delays. i try to avoid tysons corner. >> but a new construction plan could transform that area. we explain the impact that a brand new bridge could have. >> reporter: well, you know, you drive around the tysonsne
4:51 am
area and you take a look at the traffic and it looks like this most nights, most days, whenever. but hey, a new bridge in this particular area could improve the way you get around tysons within tysons this is the beltway and a new bridge is going to go over this section of the beltway right near the capitol one headquarters and jones branch drive and the whole idea is to have a better connection not just for cars but also for by sickles abicycles a pedestrians. this is about a $60 million project and for tysons corner, finding new neighborhoods popping up all the time, a project like this becomes critical. we'll be following the developments for you, but the initial stage of this bridge should be open in 2018. back to you. it's 4:51. if you have any star wars fans in your house, i certainly do, we don't have to tell you that tonight is a big
4:52 am
rogue one premiers tonight. it is the first of the star wars stand alone series. a few are able to premier it early. we've heard at least one die hard fan is already waiting outside in this weather at the uptown theater for tickets. >> get out of here with that nonsense. >> talk about dedication. on a day like this? >> they're aware the movie is going to be out the rest of their lives. right? you don't have to go on the very first day. >> you don't have to get dressed up and stand in line to be the first to see the preview. >> maybe a storm trooper outfit would keep you protected from the wind. >> it better be made out of what? >> we do have a lot going on in the weather department. be sure and stay ahead of the rapidly changing conditions with our nbc washington app. also follow me on twitter and facebook. find me there. look up chuck bell

as i can provide it to you. the cold front had a little ring out of some flurries late last night. that's all gone now. maybe a few flurries south of the bay bridge. this brown shading here, that's a wind advisory and the blue shading, that is a windchill advisory so it's going to be dangerously windy and cold. how much of each? well, at the high spots along the blue ridgel va, elevations e 2,000 feet, you could see windchills -- and this is in the high spots at 10 to 20 below zero. in and around the city i think the windchills will be in the single numbers for most of the day. these are wind gusts. 35 to nearly 40 miles per hour already. this is what it's going to feel like. temperatures are feeling like they're in the teens and 20s. this is proof that it'soi
4:54 am
get worse with time. windchills in the single numbers by 9:00 this morning at or near zero by 5:00 this afternoon. so it is not going to be an improving weather picture at all today. staying freezing cold, but not as windy tomorrow. still about a 50/50 chance that we get our first inch of snow saturday morning before it all turns over to rain saturday afternoon, saturday night and sunday. more cold weather early next week and the early lean is that we will not have a white christmas. sorry, melissa. >> i am disappointed. i love a white christmas. i only remember a few of them throughout my life. still have that crash still being reported in the right lane right now. this is not showing us exactly what's going on there. 66 east, right lane is the only lane getting by that work zone this morning. we'll take a look at 66 coming up in just a minute. all right. thank you. they
