to 20-degrees tonight in the district with that range of about 8 to 16 in the suburbs. high pressure is rightç overhe. one thing we have ditched is the wind. we're not talking about single digerornimo can it wind chills. that's the good news. the bad news we're talking about single digit air temperatures because the winds tend to make the atmosphere up a little bit. you'll definitely want to bundle up for that, but you won't have to bundle up against the wind. we're going 20 tonight with that range of 8 to 16-degrees in the suburbs. 42, we should be able to recover tomorrow afternoon. what you can expect for the kid at the bus stop, in the morning a range of 12 to 20-degrees. clearly we're still on the cold side of things, but more of a warming trend is in our forecast and i'll be detailing that with the seven day in just a bit. > we are following breaking news out of north korea, the north korean government said it

everybody's guns. yoyou pass a background check, u purchase a firearm. the problem is some gun sellers have been operating under a different set of rules. a violent felon can buy the exact same weapon over the internet with no background check. no questions asked. only federally licensed gun dealers had to provide background checks on customers creating a loophole for private individuals who sold online or on gun shows. under the president's orders the definition of a gun dealer will now expand to include anyone in the business of selling guns regardless of the venue. the president is over stepping his authority here. > this president is obsessed with undermining the constitution in general, butt second amendment in particularment he is obsessed with undermining it and it will do nothing. more reaction from the gop side now, todd cruz tweeting gun

mo is the same. it's late, the suspects come in, pull out a gun and demand money. >> you're constantly having to watch yourself now. this is all happening at all the 7/elevens. shortly of after nine on sunday night, surveillance video shows three men with large guns demappedding cash. they escaped in a black four door car. at another woodbridge 7/eleven two masked men walked in, pulled out handguns and demanded money before escaping in a black four door honda and three days earlier in the we morning hours another holdup inside another woodbridge 7/eleven. in this case the crook was alone. and ran away after demanding cash. i noticed a lot more police cars strolling up and down. when you see the increased police presence do you feel safer.
>> i generally feel safer just seeing the police in the area. when i was the vice-president of my homeowners association we encouraged police to t stroll through the neighborhood. in response tot 7/eleven stickups they have increased patrols of the surrounding area to help deter criminals and ease concerns. the big question now, is it working. tisha lewis, fox5 local news. > in howard county, maryland, glenn wood school will be closed to teachers and staff and students tomorrow due t a fire. a fire was sparked inside the school's boiler room. the billing was evacuated and students were sent to a nearby school for the remainder of the day. > a major announcement today for the city of baltimore. today governor larry hogan and baltimore mayor stephanie also blake announced plans to demolish thousands of vague can't buildings across the city. the demolition will begin in the neighborhood where freddie gray

our normal low temperature is 29-degrees and of course we're coming into this after this record warm december that we've had and a pretty mild november. so it's back to the teens in the morning and some single digits in the northern and western suburbs. high pressure is going to be moving a little bit off the coast and that will allow us to am what up by tomorrow afternoon. by no means was it a warm day, but a lot better than today. by some 10-degrees. still on the chilly side, no winds and definitely you won't have to bundle up again. we are in the teens in many areas tonight with that air treatment at gaithersburg. 15 at dulles, culpeper down to 14-degrees. i thought i'd show you around the country a little bit. buffalo, 32. it's starting to warm a little bit in the middle part of the country. and that's the trend we will begin to see as we go over the next two days. the next two nights not nearly
as cold as the last two have been. the snow that they got in the outer banks. what i want you to notice is the wind direction coming from north to south. the wind flow across the norfolk area and into the outer banks make what we call ocean effects. they had to cancel the snow in bear county. hard to believe that the outer banks got accumulating snow before we did. we talk about lake effect snow from time t time. we get the same thing with the biand with the ocean if it is cold enough and the water is warm enough. the jetstream dipping down, but it's going to move back up to the north. that will allow the tropical jets to get a little bit more active over the next few days and a couple more chances of rain in our forecast for are then of the week. friday i think there will be some rain around and then on sunday. yes, we're watching thread skins forecast for you, too.
6 as we get closer to the beltway. we will be back with the sunshine tomorrow and it will not feel as bad as it did today. we jump up to about 42-degrees tomorrow t afternoon and that is some better news indeed. i wanted to show you as we take you to the discussion this morning, tucker and mike thomas, we were trying to get to washington northwest. why are they doing, of course they want to support the redskins and of course the big game this weekend we're thinking that the rain may affect the tailgate others in the first part of the game at kickoff. i'm going to keep a shower in there at 84-degrees. the final temperature should be dryer, 43-degrees. onto your seven day forecast, by sunday, 56, 54 on sunday. we'll be trending down by the time we start the game. monday and tuesday cooler.
> what's going on with sports, jim? >> there's a lot going on. we're going to start with hockey because after that long wind streak the caps are riding high. and then they lost one, then they lost another. in boston with any apologies to new englands out there in the dmv. the first period, a heavy hitting aware, tomorrow wilson drilled by sac a rhinal dough:the caps up 1-0. he shoots, he scores, 13th of the year it's #-0 caps. and then in the third, 2-1. mark us hanson rebound. he scores much that's the game winner, the caps win it 3-2. georgetown on the road facing. two blue jays throw is high off
