6:35 am
it is a bitterly cold day. washington waking up to here in dupont circle. you can see the thermometer here says it is about 13 degrees and you see some brave folks beginning their day heading off to work. so with temperatures like we have today, top concern is always hypothermia. if you're shivering, that's a good thing. doctors say that's the body's sign things are working. once you stop, hypothermia has likely set in. the biting cold can be dangerous for the young and old and anyone with exposed skin so cover up. hats, gloves, scarves, blankets and underneath, anything but cotton that absorbs the sweat. synthetic materials is best and will keep you warmest when worn close to the skin. >> usually my face. >> definitely the cold face. >> the cold face, the wind blowing in the face. >> it's the wind. the wind is terrible. >> reporter: all right. so we're seeing two seeds right now as i see -- speeds right now as i see folks walking to

about. let's talk about what everyone wants to talk about. the storm by the end of the week. there are still a lot of moving parts. we'll start to see snow start to accumulate and move on in as early as friday morning. the heaviest stuff arrives friday afternoon into the evening overnight right through saturday morning. especially for areas west of 95 where it's going to be all snow all the time. here is the big dilemma. areas in d.c. and points south and east, we're going to have some rain mixed in. so it's not growing to be all snow all the time. that causes a huge problem as how much snow will fall when some of it will be rain and
6:41 am
then back to snow. so we have to figure those details out. what you do know is that's a mess regardless if it's worst- case scenario, regardless if we see 5 inches versus 12isms of snow. ity -- 12 inches of snow. it's going to be a big travel concern for friday into saturday. so get your prescriptions. get what you need to get done on thursday and with the rain factored in with snow on top of that, very heavy power outages will be possible. we're keeping our eyes on it. more details on the app. we'll talk about the cold weather and another chance of snow before the big storm arrives coming up in a few minutes. >> allyson, thanks. time for fast 5. want to let you know again still slow traffic on the bw parkway, i-66 at this point because of volume. the bw parkway because of an earlier accident. this is the northbound side just after 193. moderate conditions on the beptway, 50, as well -- beltway, 50, as well as 95 on
