here. look for a wintry mix early this afternoon and then perhaps changing to rain but again the rain, the wintry mix everything will get a chance to stick on roads and sidewalks as ground temperatures right now are in the teens. we are under a winter weather advisory. i'll show you that coming up but again the timing on this i'll say between about 1:00 and 7, 8 o'clock tonight look for a wintry mix across the area and icing will be an issue. guys i'll have more on this in a minute. back to you. >> tuck thanks. school closings and delays. a lot might come as a surprise as we thaw out from the weekend deep freeze. it's the threat of a wintry mix this afternoon that's leading many systems to close early. >> fairfax, loud couldn't loudon and what are haven't. >> fauquier king george page county schools. in virginia john adams elementary in alexandria is closed because there's no heat. all other alexandria city schools though will open on time. stafford county schools and fredericksburg
>> okay. let's head over to maryland now where pointer ridge elementary in bowie and marlton elementary school in upper marlboro both closed today because of heating problems. all other prince george's county schools however are open on time. dorchester county schools closed. queen anne's county schools you are on a 90 minute delay while talbot county schools are now closed for the day. >> in west virginia grant, hardy, hampshire, jefferson and mineral county schools all closed today. and all those closings and delays on the bottom of your screen on fox5d.c.com and on the fox5 news and weather apps and if you picked up on it most of those schools that are closed to the west of d.c. where the storm is coming from. those closings might come as a bit avenue surprise especially after many of you had schools closed on thursday and friday. bob barnard with more on this in fairfax county. tucker saying they expect that ice to start moving from from the west this afternoon. >> reporter: yeah, it will be interesting to see who made the right call. did fairfax county make the
right call? montgomery county having schools in maryland today opened. the issue is not right now. besides a few spotty situations where schools have no heat, schools have their heat, the roads and sidewalks are fine right now but it's what's going to come this afternoon and we're at the vdot salt dome here in fairfax right off 66. and there is a whole line of vehicles coming in here getting salt from this dome here. the issue is as tucker mentioned, the road surfaces are freezing. they've been pretreated since last week. vdot says most of the road surfaces are ready for what's coming but they have bridges and overpasses that they want to treat after the morning commute before the system comes through early this afternoon. so, that's why these trucks are getting loaded with salt and then they'll see how it goes. but they are expecting the roads to freeze after this system comes through. so, fairfax county schools, because of that, the potential for the ride home after school this afternoon
disaster, that's why fairfax county schools and loudoun county schools have closed this morning because of what's anticipated this afternoon. and again, a lot of trucks are getting loaded with salt here in anticipation. we'll see who made the right call, guys. >> all right, thanks, bob. appreciate it. as we wait, of course, for this possible icing issues across the d.c. region this afternoon, major problems continue with certain streets impacted by water main breaks. one of the newest overnight, porter street near 34th street in northwest. ice all over that intersection. repair crews appear to be making decent progress though this morning. this is just one of many water main breaks officials have dealt with during this cold snap. the cold and the damage it's caused continues to impact howard university in a major way. undergraduate students won't be returning to class today as scheduled. frozen pipes led to sporadic heating and steam damage in several buildings. emergency repairs are currently under way. right now, only four of nine dorm buildings have reliable heat.

as soon as melanie gets on the scene, we'll have that live report for you. back to you on the desk. >> ♪ >> we talked about the weather world once again today. >> yeah. >> yeah, unfortunately this time around it's the wintry mix, the dreaded wintry mix. icing possibility. i was just looking at ground temperatures. 52 end to 20 degrees. that is not going to warm up quickly. let's get right to it show you what's going to be happening here. it's the afternoon hours we're most concerned about as we could have a period of perhaps a little light snow that changes to rain and anything that falls from the sky will get a chance to kind of freeze once it hits the surface and we could have some -- even with a light glaze, some pretty serious slippery icing issues here. 21 now at reagan national, 18 dulles, 16 in baltimore at bwi marshall. it was literally just on one of the web sites here looking the the road temperatures and they're 15 to 20, so what's happening here is we're trying to get the warmer air in here and several thousand feet up it will warm first and
last place to warm up will be at the ground. if you're driving along and it's raining and you're -- your thermometer in your car says 34 degrees don't be fooled. icy spots will still likely develop as ground temperatures are going to remain in the teens or low 20's later this afternoon. all right. that being said, the event should be a light one. most of that action out to the west is in the form of light rain and light snow. we're not going to get a lot of it but we are concerned that any time after one, 2 o'clock today we'll start to see it move in from the west and we could have some icing around here in time for the fore for your evening rush hour. so, just keep that in mind that there could be some issues here. all right. we're hoping to get to 34. seven day as temperatures here 60 on that. icing is an issue here this afternoon. >> all right. good to know. >> busy morning already, though for erin. hey, erin. >> holly the problems just continue to pile up. skyfox has new locations on the beltway. a crash involving injuries. several vehicles. outer loop close to river road after the 270 spur. right lane is
two left lanes getting by and delays are coming back onto 270 southbound. watch out for an inner loop rubberneck delay. want to switch it over from that to a look at our camera. again, this is same crash, different advantage point. you can see that slowdown there. again, between bradley boulevard and thomas bridge. big delays. earlier inner loop crash between university boulevard and new hampshire avenue has us slowed. we're seeing improved conditions 270 to 95, 32 minutes. still a red zone. unfortunately it's flipped because the outer loop usually has a lot of volume. it's going to take you an hour and five minutes in college park to get from 95 to 270 and then again you can see that other line of delays hooking up on the outer loop side of things from that other crash by river road. now 270 southbound also because of it's backed up from the beltway delays, we also have another crash right there. 44 minutes just to get from 121 to the beltway. you can see all that backed up traffic past that scene with the flashing lights. this is a crash between montrose road and old georgetown road. a lot of problems coming up from the top side of the beltway. this is a 395
washington boulevard issue. a disabled car. kind of zoomed the camera down but the right lane is actually blocked. or is that the left lane? excuse me. left lane blocked. you can see that traffic moving past in the right lane so allow for extra time as you come up from the beltway to the 14th street bridge. look at all those metro problems. red line earlier power pro problem. orange line train malfunction at eastern market causing delays. we have several water main breaks round town. any questions at erin fox5 d.c. on twitter. unfortunately there's so many issues we just can't get them all in. back to you. >> thanks erin. 7:09 right now. all new this morning, scary moments in alexandria. a gun goes off during an overnight home invasion and police say one of the suspects apparently shot himself by accident. just before 1:00 a.m., alexandria police tweeted that three suspects broke into an apartment in a robbery attempt but at one point, one of the suspects inadvertently shot themselves. all three suspects got away. no one living in the apartment

unclear. an autopsy will be conducted to determine how the man died. >> happening today family and friends will gather to say final farewells to armani cole. cole wall shot along -- found shot along 295 at the maryland-d.c. border on december 28th. the services will be at the greater mount calvary holy church in northeast. that's set to begin at 10:00 this morning. so far police have not announced a motive or any suspects in the case. however, they are looking into whether his death is connected to the murder of kerrice lewis. she was found in the trunk of a burning car an hour later and a few miles away in southeast d.c. friends say cole and lewis did know each other. >> still to come this morning, book backlash. the president unleashing a firestorm of tweets after the scathing book about his administration became a best seller. >> new leadership adding up to new rules for the miss america pageant. we'll have details on the big policy change after the break. >> ♪ >> ♪♪
>> ♪ >> welcome back to fox5 news morning on a monday morning. very cold out there. 7:14. live look at the white house. we're only at 21 degrees and we're expecting a wintry mix later this afternoon that could wreak havoc in our area. tucker is going to talk more about it in a few seconds. the port authority of new york and new jersey is launching an investigation into a burst water pipe which led to flooding inside a baggage claim area at j.f.k. international airport. crews yesterday had to rush passengers out of the baggage area to avoid getting wet. the flood added to the problems at j.f.k. which was trying to get back up to full speed after days of delays and cancellations stemming from last thursday's storm. >> coming up on 7:15 we'll have a big change from the cold we've had for the last week or so. but we have to get through today first. >> today is that transition day. did i see you ice skating on the reflecting
did you see people out there ice skating. >> they were? >> out playing hockey. >> i don't know if that's legal or not. >> but it's kind of cool. >> looked cool. >> frozen. why not. >> it looked very cool what's that. >> if it was frozen why not. >> we are transitioning to this warmer air pattern but today is that day that we all dread because we got a wintry mix in the forecast this afternoon. temperatures remain well below freezing for everybody. most everybody in the low 20's here. 21 in washington, 22 in fredericksburg. so, air temperatures we think will warm up to around freezing this afternoon as our system moves in. but as that warmer air moves in aloft we're likely to see a light wintry mix or even light rain break out across the area ad as that process happens, what will occur is as soon as it touches the ground it will start to freeze on paved surfaces, sidewalks, roadways, pavements will get very slippery quickly and again those of us that have endured ice storm around here you know it only takes a little bit to start to cause major problems so watch what happens here. here we are at 11:00. you can see
the north and west. by one, 2 o'clock most everybody will have some light rain showers around and then the whole thing will wrap up 7, 8 o'clock tonight. there we are at 5 o'clock. that's the evening rush hour. still looking at light rain and let me just say again just because you have a thermometer in your car that says 34 degrees, we're hoping to see temperatures in the mid 30's, doesn't mean that the roads aren't in the teens and 20's and that that isn't freezing when it hits the surface so there could be lots of slippery conditions around here later this afternoon. the good news is the warmer air will get in here tonight and on the horizon here we've got 50's and maybe even a 60-degree temperature by the end of the week but today, could be a challenging afternoon. >> all right. look at the bright side. make it through today and we have much warmer temperatures. >> at least for a couple days. >> thanks tucker. >> good morning erin. >> bright side you're not sitting in beltway traffic. this is skyfox. they're over a crash after the 270 spur. outer loop by river road. left lane is get buying but this is causing a significant delay back onto 270
looking okay but typical slowdowns through tysons. let's switch it over because the top side of the beltway is just a mess in both directions. we had an earlier inner loop crash involving several vehicles and injuries. inner loop between university boulevard and new hampshire avenue. right now just one right lane is blocked. three left lanes opened. but the inner loop side of things close to a 30 minute commute from 270 over to to 95. average speeds are about, under 20 miles per hour. outer loop side of things because of the heavy congestion on the outer loop and the rubberneck delay 95 southbound backed up the icc to the beltway. it's going to take you an hour and 19 minutes on the outer loop to get from 95 over to the 270 spur. there you can see the backup on the outer loop leading toward that other crash by river road. now, 270 southbound crash blocks the right shoulder after montrose road. and it's going to take you 46 minutes just to get from 109 to the local lane split. huge delays through gaithersburg and rockville on the 270 side of things this morning. now, there's also a disabled vehicle 395 in virginia. it's on the southbound side at wash
disabled vehicle blocking the left lane. southbound volume is light. northbound typical delays from the beltway to the 14th street bridge. four metro rail line delays on the red silver blue and orange. earlier problem at morgan boulevard and glenmont. earlier train malfunction at eastern market causing delays to vienna on the orange line. several water main breaks including bw parkway northbound blocking a lane annapolis road in lanham and also 66, 35 minute trip from 234 to the beltway earlier crash by 28 cleared. deep breath. back to you. >> lots going on. >> president trump back at the white house after spending the weekend at camp david with republican congressional leaders in maryland. they discussed the 2018 legislative agenda including talks about the budget immigration and infrastructure to name just a few issues. the republican leaders and the president also discussed strategy about the midterm election. agenda overshadowed by the book that says the trump administration is dysfunctional and the president not fit for the job. >> some of the president's supporters denounced the book
our maureen umeh joins us now with more. mo. >> good morning, both of you. reactions continue to pour in after the release of michael wolff's bombshell book "fire and fury" inside the trump white house. it was released on friday and quickly sold out at many locations. the book paints the trump administration as dysfunctional and the president as unfit for office. but those close to the president are coming to his defense just days after the book's release. >> this is a book of fiction. not only is it not accurate, there is so many misrepresentations in this book that it shouldn't be taken seriously. >> this book is a complete fabrication. >> those statements are just absurd chris, i mean, just, just pure fantasy. i'm with him almost every day. we talk about some of the most serious matters facing america and the world. complex issues. the president is engaged. he understands the complexity. he asks really difficult questions. >> the president also again responded to the book's allegation tweeting in part i've had to put
announced i would be running for president. now i have to put up with a fake book written by a totally discredited author. ronald reagan had the same problem and handled it so well. so will i. despite the push back the author says he's standing by everything he wrote. >> if i left out anything it's probably stuff that was even more damning. >> thait's that bad. >> it's that bad. it's an extraordinary moment in time. >> some of the more controversial statements in the book came from former white house chief strategist steve bannon. over the weekend bannon did not dispute any of the quotes attributed to him. he didn't apologize outright either but he did tell fox news he regrets that his comments distracted from the president's accomplishments. much more to come as the fallout from "fire and fury" and cocontinues to roll out. >> how long do you have to wait to still get it. >> right. >> a lot of people want to read it. >> president trump planning to postpone his so-called fake news awards. you might remember last week he said he was going to do it da

much of the area and roads, sidewalks could become very slippery very quickly with that light rain falling with the light glaze expected across the region by this evening's rush hour. just keep that in mind. things get a lot better tomorrow. that's going to feel like a heat wave, 47 and then look at that by the end the week near 60. wintry mix, light rain, icing, freezing rain likely this afternoon. we don't need that, do we erin. >> we don't need any of that because we don't have that right now and we already have so many slow spots. huge problems on the beltway. newest crash on the outer loop after the 270 spur by river road causing big delays. coming off the 270 spur you're completely backed up much .crash moved over to the right shoulder. let's move over to our maps right now. that's not the only big problem. we had the inner loop crash between university and new hampshire. so right now your drive times inner loop close to half hour from the 270 spur over to 95. outer loop from the rubberneck delay you are at 88 minutes, an hour and 28 minutes to get

general in the teens. that's the actual temperature of the roadways. anything that falls from the sky will get a chance to adhere to our paveed surfaces and untreated roads, sidewalks, your driveway, your back porch that kind of thing may ice up here pretty quick, and the timing couldn't be worse as it will get in here between about i'd say one and 3:00 and be with us through the evening commute. >> temps right now cold enough to support any kind of wintry mix out there. 21 in washington. 18 gaithersburg. 17 manassas. 22 fredericksburg. it's been days and days and days of this extreme cold and even if we warm these air temperatures later today in the low to mid 30s it's going to take while to warm up the ground. so with that lag effect we're concerned that any light rain that falls will again ice up here pretty quick. okay. there's your front. warmer temperatures behind the front believe it or not. temperatures right now in pittsburgh 32 degrees. and we've got temperatures in the 30s and even 40s out to the west. so this is your transition zone and again as this moves in this
light wintry mix or perhaps light rain across the area. as that moves on in. there's another look at it. and again, not much change in air mass. behind the air mass we should be warmer tomorrow with temperatures in the 40s. but that transition zone will be across our region today in the form of sleet and freezing rain for the area. so just be on the look out here and i just want to remind you just because your car thermometer says 34 degrees doesn't mean that you won't encounter ice as this moves in from the north and west. there we are at 2:00 o'clock. light rain expected across the area, again, it will try to ice up just about everything. and there we are at 6:00 o'clock with it still lightly raining across the region whole thing should be out here by seven, 8:00 o'clock things will improve overnight although i think tomorrow morning there still could be icy spots particularly north and west temperatures don't really get above 32 until tomorrow afternoon. so just, you know, be on the look out very cautious for ice even if you're not driving and walking around make sure you're ready for sidewalk that could be slippery because we don't

very committed to the idea of the whole process, and the whole journey of it and the intricacies of the job of the first responder and humanizing them so we are going to get to see these characters, um, hopefully on deeper levels and i think in that way we will really be able to honor them. >> this question comes from a friend of mine who's a big fan of nashville. your character was killed off in season five. will we see her come back in flashback or season in the final season? >> i don't know. i really don't know. i mean, i would certainly be open to the idea but, um, i don't think that we're going to see the ghost of reina james. i just don't see that happening. >> flashback, something about her in season six needs to happen. >> we shall see. >> all right. that question about nashville came from our producer jeff a big fan who is big fan of

in loft it will take several hours to warm up the ground we're concerned we'll have a period of light freezing rain or wintry mix around here this afternoon and that light rain will likely stick to paveed surfaces so roads, sidewalks, your back porch could become very lip pre in a hurry. be on the look out for icing conditions later today and the warmup near 60 bite end of the week. erin? >> tuck, i'm telling you, traffic is so bad this morning, we don't even have all that weather going on yet i'm really concerned for the afternoon ride home. outer loop between bradley boulevard and thomas bridge right near river road six vehicles involved blocking the right shoulder. they opened up several lanes but the delay is real. and in that backup the left lane is now blocked because outer loop before the 270 spur there's new crash. it was standstill traffic now everybody has to merge over to the right lane. left lane block an hour and 21 minutes to get from 95 on the outer loop in college park all the way to 270 spur and delays continue to pass river road. aside from that one we also have

this afternoon. let's get right over to tucker barnes for first check of the forecast. good morning to you. >> yeah, i mean here's the good news, maureen. warmer temperatures moving on in, but unfortunately the trade off is transition might be a wintery mix. let's go right to the satellite picture. light wintry mix perhaps freezing rain as early as one, two clock in the afternoon through the evening rush hour, and the amounts will be light. but the concern is with ground temperatures in the teens we could have freezing conditions at the surface. oh paved roadways, sidewalks, your back porch, anything that the light rain gets a chance to another here could become very slippery in a hur reach winter weather advisory in effect later this afternoon. light rain likely become freezing rain when it hits surface. more on the weather coming up good news warmer temperature on the way. back to you. tucker, thank you. more now on that blast of winter weather heading our way today. >> ice, sleet, snow all headed straight for the dmv. many schools made the call to close for the day and that includes f
bob barnard is there now with how people are reacting to this surprise closure. bob? >> reporter: yeah, guys. they were closed thursday because of the snow. friday because of the cold. today because of what may come as tucker mentioned to these roadways here. this is lehigh way and vdot says they have already treated the major road surfaces as of last friday and it remains so. they didn't have to do anything overnight or early this morning. i can show you the salt dome here in fairfax that we vived in our last hour and so they have a lot of trucks these contracted trucks that will be hitting the overpasses and bridges after the morning rush hour ahead of the wintry mick that's coming that could cause problems for the afternoon. no problem this morning going into school. most of the schools here in fairfax county have heat but they are closed because of what may come this afternoon getting the kids home. the buses and people walking and picked up by their parents that it could be treacherous this afternoon if the surfaces get covered with
mixed reactions about that here in fairfax. >> i think it's always good to be cautious for the kids. keep them safe and no protect out if they had to wait for a bus or something. i think it's best you keep the kids safe. >> they need to go back to school but you want to be safe, too. >> it shouldn't have ban been cancel. unless they have a lot of schools with problems with heating and things like that or unless they're really really really worried about the supposed winter mix coming think afternoon, i see no sense inning is the schools closed. it makes no sense. >> 'cause because it's inconvenient, um, i think it's going to rain later -- snow, rain, sleet, so it might be tough later for the people. but, um, i don't know. it's a hard call. >> reporter: inconvenience for the families who for the third day here in fairfax have to figure out what to do with the kids if they're goi
is it the right call? we'll fine out many of schools in montgomery county and throughout maryland are open today. here in fairfax, closed. we'll see how you goes this afternoon who made the right call. back to you. >> no doubt, bob. thanks very much. cold and damage it caused continues time packet other places like howard university in a major wage under grads will not go to class today as schedule because frozen pipes led to sporadic heating and steam damage in number of buildings. emergency repairs currently underway right now only four of nine dorm buildings have reliable heat. some buildings expected to be closed for a month under grads won't start the new semester until next tuesday january 16th. graduate programs are expected to resume today. major problems continue with certain streets impacted by water main breaks. one of the newest overnight porter street near 34th street in northwest. ice all over the intersection repair crews appear to be making decent progress this morning. now this is just one of many water main breaks officials have had to deal with during this cold snap
causing serious problems in prince george's county. take look at this home in fort washington along bach avenue the base system filled with 6 feet of water. >> goodness. >> real mess. we talk to the man whose basement flooded. >> in the basement you see they have washer and drier in there. one room, i have music room where you don't save anything. >> water main break happened on top of the hill. water then node down overwhelming the sewers. so water was forced from people's toilets and as you can see, creating a very nasty mess there. >> not good at all. 8:05. all right. let's keep the bad stuff outside if we can. we'll get to tucker in just a minute. first, this is what's happening in new york right now. it doesn't look like there's too much going on this trump tower by the way. new york city fire apparently was on the roof of trump tower in manhattan earlier. these are live pictures right knowledging see a handful of foofighters still on the roof of trump tower. fire crews still
to be out. it happened just before 7:00 o'clock this morning. now five minutes past 8:00 looks like all is good, again, on the roof of trump tower. >> all right. that's good to hear. meanwhile right here in the district d.c. fire and ems say two boats that were on fire in a southwest marina have now sung. this is happening in the james creek marone in a located at second and v streets. this is video from the scene from dc fire department rescue three. the focus now turns to handling any fuel spills in the water way. luckily no injuries have been reported. that's good news there. in the meantime, let's check in with tucker. look i don't think a lot of people expected some of these school closings for something that may not happen for hours. >> no. >> it could be pretty serious. >> i mean the potential is is there for things to get slippery in hurry. things can go downhill quickly when it starts to rain and things start to stick. >> we know. >> we go from being fine to being in an icy -- >> right. >> -- other world. >> mixing that bowl a couple yearsing. >> in a matter of minutes and the potential is
happen but the potential is there. 21 at reagan national. 19 dulles. bwi marshall 14. so cold for so long ground temperatures just looking at local highway conditions and roadway conditions much ground temperatures are in the teens. so here's what's happening. warmer air a loft is moving in. we are going to be in for wa warmup. wait until i saw the seven day, but as the rain falls on to cold grounder it will immediately start to freeze. and so roadways, sidewalks, anything out there where the light rain can al hired will start to freeze over and likely have icing issues this afternoon you can see it moving from the west. right now it's snow. light rain when it moves into our region later today. we're thinking air temperatures may top out a few degrees above freezing. winter weather advisory in effect for most of our region if you're in southern maryland or lower eastern shore, you are not under that advisory. that's good news for you mostly just be rain for you. but for the rest of us, again, the concern here is things are going to ice up pretty quick this afternoon. you want to time it if you're out to the w
