5:11 pm
police say they've resumed the body found here is lopez, and they have notified her family. surveillance video, you might remember, was release from the a cbs recently hopes of locating her. prince william county police say no suspects yet. but they are looking for additional evidence. they're asking for additional clues, authority say that they searched all of this area, right now, they can only tell me that the reason that they are believing this is a homicide, is because of the way that the body was actually found in the ditch, they wouldn't elaborate, wouldn't tell knee there was trauma to the body. that that would be announced after autopsy is reported but they are treating this as a homicide investigation. live in prince william county, matt ackland, fox5 news. 55 degrees out there, cold and chilly one again. i feel like it is just like
5:12 pm
groundhog day over and over. >> i know. >> or back in time. >> exactly, february, what it is starting to feel like. >> it is cold out there, sue. soap, and as you mentioned, we're going into orthodox weekends, a lot of people going out to church tonight, and tomorrow night, and spending the evening outside. >> a lot of people with outdoor plans, i want to say welcome to punxsutawney, i'm bill murray, i'll be your guide this weekend. >> right. >> and white house correspondence dinner, as laura mentioned, a loft surfaces outside, as well. and at least at this point, we're only seeing clouds, and cool temperatures, not as much of the drizzle and mist that we had the past couple of days, but we do think that could redevelop little later tonight. so if you have plans, for the weekends, we just have to tell you there are going to be some rounds of wet weather, satellite and radar right now, just showing clouds, i just checked the observations not too many people reporting any drizzle or mist right now. so short-term headed out for bite to eat, probably don't need to keep the umbrella at the right hand of your n
5:13 pm
plans, but i would certainly pacca umbrella for later tonight, and then we have to watch for this area of low pressure that's going to develop over the weekend and get little closer. now the bulk of tomorrow should be dry and probably not going to be able to make a lot of headway in warming up. it is that east winds coming in off the atlantic keeping us in those mid 50's, and that will likely continue late tonight, tomorrow. i want to show you future cast, because we know so many of you have plans for tonight, as well as tomorrow, as the orthodox celebration begins for easter this weekend, and while we're seeing the re-development of some very spotty, light showers or mist around 11:00 it, doesn't appear that that will last all night could there be drizzle during the day, yes, but late saturday night, and overnight, into sunday, when we're going to have to deal with perhaps our most significant batch of rain, some of which could come in the form of some heavy downpours, maybe a rumble of thunder, so thinking about services on sunday
5:14 pm
definitely looks wet for much of the area. break in the afternoon then maybe another rounds of showers coming in as we get into sunday evening. so here is your weekend in a nutshell. 62 degrees tomorrow, little warmer than today. fingers crossed. some drizzle, and then the showers hold off until later in the day. bigger round every rain sunday, we could pick up inch there. maybe rumble every thunder, the bulk of the rain looks to be in the first half of sunday, with another weaker wave coming in a little later. let's talk about the possibility of thunderstorms, too, this weekend, because we do know with the evening rain that's going to be coming on in, we may be able to hold that rain off just a little bit. but this could produce one or two thunderstorms, hoping for few dry areas in the afternoon, that's about it. is there a risk of strong storms? there is possibility of some isolated strong or severe storms to the south of that warmfront. and boy that warmfront is going to be giving us a lot to work with this weekend, because if it moves through sunday
5:15 pm
a lot warmer, could even get into the 70s, but if it stays south so many times it does not move through it this time of year. it will only be in the 60s, so you're all caught up on the weekends, we'll take you hour by hour for the forecast, show you what next week is starting to shape up like. are we going to be able to scrape the barnacles off? sarah, laura, back to you, that's it from punks town. >> i so we need to keep a cover -- >> will you sends pictures out? >> we will, absolutely. >> very good. thanks, sue. prince william county's newest high school is getting a fancy upgrade. >> very fancy. charles jay coal began high school soon home to stein way and sons grand piano, the same piano you will find at the white house as well as the kennedy center, the school paid hefty $125,000 for the piano, the price of the piano is know for its high quality craftsmanship and superior sound. but, th

5:42 pm
you for severing ties by using altzheimer's for this material. it is to isn't a great day for a lot of people. michael reagan tweeted out, thank you for taking the right path. if you want to know more about this disease, contact myself or patty. joining me now is robert egggy chief public policy officer of the altzheimer's association, robert, thank you so much for being with us today. >> pleasure this stirred up a ton of controversy. >> so will ferrell was going to do this, starring as ronald reagan watch was your re when is this first came out? >> well, i and the alzheimer's association, were appalled, it was puzzling this ever could be thought of as the premise for a comedy. the best we can come up with just was no understanded wag this diseases really like. >> yes. this is not a comedy. >> no, it is not. >> at all. not a laughing matter. however, playing the definitely's advocate, does it
5:43 pm
raise awareness to make assume about this if done in the right way? >> you know, i don't think you could do this film in a right way. the movie is out recent lip it, did shine a light, wonderful way to raise the conversation about altzheimer's, but the idea that could you do a comedy about someone who died of a terminal disease, and call that terminal disease anything other than tragic, is baffeling to those who have experienced this disease. >> and i guess there is question, too, about ronald reagan didn't necessarily have alts here's while he was in office. and i think there is a question how will ferrell was going to be playing this, and what era. >> that's right. that would be another set of questions. for us more funds mentally, the basic idea for the millions of americans who have dealt with altzheimer's, dealing with it right now, that's where we stop, that question of how did you think that this could be comedy material. just nothing fun bye it, if you thought about brain c
5:44 pm
that is almost as deadly assaults him err's, would you never think to do a come bye about this topic. >> and of course we saw and i mentioned how reagan's son and daughter came out, and their reaction to this, as well, what we didn't talk about was their strong reaction, negative reaction, they were reacting to the fact that will ferrell decided he was not going to do this film. but in the negative reaction, what stands did the altzheimer's association take when this was first announced, before will ferrell said i'm not going to do this? >> it is being consistent, which is outrage or appalled. this is not -- kind of dark ages of looking at this disease. >> did you make a statement? >> yes. >> did you be weighing in. >> did will ferrell respond? >> i can't speak to that part. all i know is that we have spoken out about this, and not just us, there have been advocates, i mean, twitter, for instance, lighting up, anybody who experienced the disease, what's going on here? how could this be considered
5:45 pm
so yes, we've been very clear. this is unacceptable to be thinking of altzheimer's in a comedic way, not the ways we need to think about this. fortunately here, still alice, in town here, in washington, people are taking altzheimer's very seriously as a priority. that's exactly what we node to do. turn the corner on this disease. >> thank you very much. >> glad to be here. >> let's go over to see take a look at the weather for this weekend, sue, no changes in the last 20 minutes. >> we're all hoping for something. >> those models update every few hours, laura, and we're looking for some signs. could be some changes as we get into sunday. that's for sure. now listen, there is something i want to let you know that you might have fun doing this weekend. the national weather service is going to be having an open house saturday and sunday, the national weather service located out near dullos airport. you can get out there saturday 9:00 to 5:00. sunday 12:00 to 5:00. phenominal facility, staff
5:46 pm
see how they work with the forecast, maybe ask them why we're stuck in the pattern, although i will be happy to answer that here in a minute. they dot weather balloon launches out there, show you how that's done, even become sky warn weather spotter. very child friendly, it is free, parking free, there will be hundreds and hundreds of people taking advantage of it, i guarantee you will find it quite fascinating. think about that on soggy weekends. tonight we have a lot of clouds. that's for sure. not seeing much in the way of drizzle at the moment. but dow think that may build in a little bit later. we could even have couple of light showers by about 10:00, 11:00 tonight. we will watch this complex head in the our direction, that will be getting closer to us tomorrow night. so the soggy pattern will continue, and in fact, it is going to pick up in intensity as woe get into saturday night and sunday. so what you can expect tomorrow is drizzle, off and on, during the day, but believe me it will be the drier of the two days. rain will begin to develop late after, say, 10:00 tomorrow night. the rain continues, into
5:47 pm
to heavy at times, with maybe rumble every thunder, our kind of our out lie err is a warmfront that's going to be to our south. will it come through. if it does clear much of the area, thunder will be a little bit after bigger deal. no big improvement next week. maybe little bit of an increase in the temperatures, but here's why we're in this pattern. stalled boundery down to our south, allows that ocean air to come in, and it is really loads us up on moisture at the lower levels. now, that boundery may move just a little bit over the weekends, and as it gets a little closer that's why we will increase the intensity, focus the showers here over dc. short-term patches of drizzle later tonight. not much change in these temperatures, these are the highs today, really close to the highs yesterday, and maybe we're a little warmer tomorrow. but right now we're still at five. notice that winds direction, still bringing in the east wind. so we're thinking tomorrow, maybe 62 degrees. because we will be little bit drier, the showers will be later in the day, drizzle can't be ruled out earlier in the day. sunday we warm up to
5:48 pm
deal, we may pick up an inch of rain before we get to sunday night. in fact, i just wanted to show you this is what we are thing in terms of the potential for rain, maybe another inch here in d.c. that is great news because you know we need the rain. we have been running a deficit for couple of months. but, not everybody want to hear about it on busy weekends, lots of outdoor activity. so we keep the scattered showers going into monday at 72 degrees, can't rule out few showers tuesday. but notice, the temperatures are beginning to come up just a little bit. and we will keep the showers possible thursday, and friday, as well. we'll have another update of your forecast, laura, i promise you i am looking for drier hours sunday. we will be right back.
