. right now at 11:00, drivers still recovering from a rough ride home tonight face problems in the morning tonight a look at what's clear, what not, what you need to do to prepare. thank you for joining us. tomorrow is friday, of course, a lot of schools are still closed but not d.c. >> almost there. check the bottom of your screen for the complete list, we have received word the federal government is open tomorrow. but as we continue to dig out
and make some progress, tonight we face another freeze. that means another tough commute in the morning so straight out to our chief meteorologist about what we should be looking out for. enough icy patches, generally above freezing but you don't need temps 32 to be freezing on the roads. 32 in frederick, and in hagerstown, martinsburg, and on the future cast, like this. 5:30, 6:00. , just about everywhere, 33 downtown, and 28. now by 8:00, we're still either side of freezing, so still about 8 or 9:00 you have to be careful walking around and also driving, could last until 9:00 before they start to fall out a little bit. kind of blustery, winds will
turn northwesterly, still only in the mid-30s, 36 downtown, 5 in fairfax also in dale city. we'll come back take you through the day also take you through the day with the wind chills, might be surprised how cold it is going to be tomorrow but might be surprised how warm it is going to be over the weekend. tomorrow may be the end of the week, for many it is just the beginning of what could be yet another tough commute. with more and more schools and businesses staying open more of you will be it hitting the road and riding the metro, is the district live for that. we're live along river road to see if things were any better than they were 24 hours ago. we have fingers and toes crossed here. >> somewhat better i'm going to show you all of it later things do seem to be improving here across d.c. things seem to be back to operating on normal hours to the metro to d.c., that doesn't mean the commute
is back to normal. >> how do you get to work? >> i typically drive. >> i take the bus. >> i walk. >> driving, riding or walking this week's daily commutes are anything but normal. >> absolutely atrocious. >> things seem to be improving on the metro riders say today is better than yesterday. >> pretty crowded, a lot more people, otherwise, i took it in stride, it was okay but it was all right. >> bus riders say the same thing. >> and people can't get out. you have people you see right here. >> so do drivers. >> get to another lane on mass av, going downtown. >> and walkers.
>> a lot of the snow has melted now, at least it is clear so you can find work around, it is a lot easier than it has been in the last couple of days. with temperatures expected to drop over night some are worried about whatever improvements they saw today would disappear in the morning. >> i'm a little worried about the ice on the tracks and if it continues to stay this cold there could be more water bursts. some just aren't going to risk it. >> if i have a vacation day i'm going to take a vacation day. i do not want to be stuck not knowing when i'm going to get home. >> most of the major roads in d.c. seem to be a lot better in the evening but one road is river road, and until a couple of hours ago this side was open. plows have been out here working but both lanes are open you can see at my feet where the plows came through they didn't leave behind a lot of
slush and ice which certainly could make things difficult for tomorrow's commute. reporting tonight, wusa9. thank you. the mayor of d.c. has made a decision that's going to cost the city about 700 grand. but also going to ke thousands of drivers pretty happy. voiding all of the tickets who left their cars on snow emergency routes last friday. if you already paid the $250 fine, you're going to get a refund. drivers who got ticketed saturday, sunday or monday, still going to have to pay and anyone who got towed still out for that. the issued tickets, most on friday. to montgomery county tonight, schools back in session on monday. the snow removal crews will
be rushing to clear the sidewalks and we are live at with a look how parents, are going stir crazy. >> here in montgomery, the case in most of the areas of the school districts in our area the continued snow removal efforts is causing schools to be canceled tomorrow and that's causing some students and most parents to get stir crazy. >> we need a little alone time for the children that we love so dearly. >> helen laughs but admits the parents are close to the edge. >> all of the moms stuck together, all right. everybody is taking care of everybody else's kids, tomorrow she is going to go to after care because mommy can't take it anymore. >> how do you handle this last week? >> awesome.
>> too much together time. >> juggling work and motherhood at the same time in the same place. >> the office is a disaster. >> food, toys, doggy treats, paper,ipad makes you wonder what home looks like. >> now is the snow that's melting. >> i am living on advil. even their diets are a disaster. >> pop tarts, like i've given up. her hope is that schools reopen and reclaim students that depends on progress made on still unplowed neighborhoods, hazardous conditions for students walking and riding buses to school. says she understands the school district is in a tough spot, could have met better planning. >> every day is a question are they going to school? not going to school?
everybody know they probably weren't going to have school all week. >> at least they know in montgomery county monday it is back to school. time to go back to school. >> no it's not. >> it is. >> no it's not. fortunately for parents, this decision is not up to the kids. >> glad to see that you can keep a sense of humor. according to montgomery county the remaining snow still on the ground, as far as who has to clean that up, that falls on a combination of state and county crews as well as individual neighborhoods. live in montgomery county, wusa 9. we are almost there, we'll be right here for you as long as it takes to recover from the blizzard of 2016, let us know what you are seeing and feeling out there? download our wusa 9 app to get closings and delays and push
