freezing in some spots north and west it will be brief. okay? so not anticipating any problems. but the winter weather advisories are in place back out to the west and this is way out west mostly into western virginia and eastern sections of west virginia and mainly at the higher elevations too where they could pick up maybe a inch or so of snow and freezing rain possible on top of that i initially concerns are way to the west of us. temperatures later today. notice we're talking about a chilly rain here. i think we get up to 45. we're 44 now. so 45. but as we get into the afternoon really temperatures will come down a little bit. probably just looking like upper 30s to low 40s around here during the late day with all this rain coming on across. so it's going to be kind of chill hi and raw and not that great. and tomorrow we'll dry out a little and be a little better and towards end of week a cold shot of air is coming north and west. so definitely going to feel like winter around here for the next several days. again, early mix possible. but it should not be a big deal

little freeze of rain. should not be a big deal on the roads. roads are fairly warm. so you know. there could be a sleet mixing in and further north and west maybe a little bit of snow. want to start with stormtracker radar. here's why it's not really showing anything at all right now okay? so just so you know we start off the commute this morning dry and then what we're seeing is quickly coming in south of us now are showers and higher elevations right now some of this is snow rain or sleet as well and as this comes across so you know once it happensp and raining and dry cold column of air temperatures go down. even though it's starting with rain we can goat a changeover in some places just a mix. just a mix. this is not a problem. i don't and worries with the morning commute or anything like that. just so you know. winter weather advisories are out too way to the west of us. temperatures bates later today we manage 45 for foy a high.
and low 40s all this becomes a chilly rain. it's going to be kind of that kind of day to be honest with you and then by later on this evening the rain will get out of here and we'll dry things up. and you see where temperatures for us we may get -- we'll drop to low 40s we may get close to mid 40s lunchtime or so. again as this rain continues it's going to be chilly and raw. remember, could start off as a little mix. and even if problems from anything frozen on the roadways other and the fact it will be a problem with the basically precipitation creating issues. >> it doesn't do anything good just causes problems. here's an idea if you want to exhibit roads and deep metro they're gearing up at five. we're tracking safe surge 11 with continue uus single tracking between west and east

they too have received strange phone calls and online harassment as well. and now, our welsh faces seven charges some serious felony charges including assault with a dangerous weapon and unlawful discharge of weapon it said he had large capacity ammunition magazine with him as well. so, lots of serious charges here. one thing we did find out is that it turns out there were four people inside the restaurant and one ran out back and three ran out the front and no other patrons involved in this here. we do know that welsh is going to be in court again thursday to see whether he will be released on bond or not. live in northwest i'm melanie alnwick, "fox5 local news". >> 4:49 is the time another 7-eleven store in d.c. hit in a flash robbery nearly 30 teen stormed through the store in the barracksville area. police are looking for the teens involved and same store
