6:15 pm

6:16 pm
it is 15.4 degrees, and that does not account for the wind chill factor. what we have found is that people are using different strategies to cope with the cold. at the pentagon row outdoor skating rink there was only one skater on the ice. the temperature gun says it's just about 21 degrees. >> it's a thing with the wind feels a lot colder than that. >> reporter: yet you took today to skate and you skate how often? >> this is my first time. >> reporter: despite the cold, dogs have to be walked. bella is seven years old. >> it is a bit more of a struggle. she hates her sweater. she definitely needs it. today's not her favorite day. >> reporter: we wouldn't welcome it. i just think i can make it. it's not going to be that
6:17 pm

6:18 pm
jim, back to you. >> thanks, chris. during the break we invite you to download the nbc washington app. turn on weather alerts to get updates on this wintry mix. and we are expecting for them to move in on us. metro is significantly slashing rail hours in order to do more track work on the aging system. metro's board unanimously voted for the changes today. they're set to begin next june and will last for two years. here they are. metro's going to close at 11:30 monday through thursday and at 1:00 on fridays and saturdays. on sundays the system won't open until 8:00 a.m. and will close at 11:00 p.m. transportation reporter adam tuss has been tracking the developments on this all day. live at judiciary square. adam, really tough decision for metro's board and for the members of the district, right? >> reporter: 100%. you look at all of those hours that you just explained. you think about d.c
6:19 pm
bars and its restaurants and the late-night service that it's going to lose. remember, for the longest time metro rail stayed open until 3:00 a.m. on friday and saturday nights. now you're talking about moving that back to 1:00 a.m. there's been a real distaste for that type of cut back in the district. officially district leaders had to concede and make a concession and say, okay, we will go ahead with this plan. when you boil it down, the metro general manager, the person that this board picks to make these type of tough decisions was telling them, look, we need two years of this scaled back plan on hours. that way we can get the system to where it needs to be. we want to do things like safe track. we'll see how it plays out. this is not a pill that anybody wants to swallow. >> indeed. adam, there was some other big news from metro today. some people got fired after the investigation of that east falls church derailment,
6:20 pm
six metro track inspectors were fired. six more could be fired in the coming days. we're talking about 28 people in metro's track inspection department. that's nearly half of their track inspectors that are going to be facing some type of discipline because if you remember that east falls church derailment last summer, this happened at a crossover point by the east falls church station. what they were saying is these track inspectors were going in there and falsifying reports of the conditions of those tracks. metro conducted their own investigation and found that that, in fact, was the case. they are taking disciplinary action against half of their track inspection department. that is simply unheard of and anything i've heard of since they've been covering metro. more action can be coming. truly a monumental day. >> more action and even the possibility of criminal charges, right? >> reporter: absolutely. so metro's own police department investigated these people and they're not going to bring any charges, but the investigation isn't done. it's being
6:21 pm
agency and if they find something that's truly raises to that level, absolutely there could be criminal charges. not a good day for the transit agency, especially when you think about riders who are on that train and their safety that was put at risk simply because someone falsified reports and did not do their job. that is, frankly, irreprehensible. >> thank you. coming up, facebook taking action to stop the spread of fake news on social media. while more than 2600 police officers now have body cameras in the district. coming up, we'll

6:27 pm
county, parts of the panhandle. frederick county, virginia. maybe a little bit of snow but, again, more freezing rain that could lead to some slick roads in spots. that quickly changes over to rain by 10:00, 11:00 a.m. on saturday. look at the temperatures. what you need to see where you live and if you're 32 above or below. tomorrow evening below 32. mainly dry. anything that moves in saturday at 5:00 a.m., well, we're still looking at the potential for mainly freezing rain. future temperatures, 11:00 a.m. on saturday. just about everybody at or above freezing. anything falling from the sky at that point for the most part just going to be rain. then we continue to warm. we're talking about highs on sunday, doug, in the low 60s. what a change. >> what a change for sure. only to go right back down on monday but, yeah, that weather roller coaster continuing. tomorrow and saturday both weather alert days. high temperatures on saturday could be close to midnight. this is the afternoon temperature around 4:00, 5:00. we could be n
