moderate site. the yellow area approaching martins burke dropping almost -- martinsburg dropping almost due south now. showers into myersville and brunswick and now northern loudoun county and frederick yeah the showers are coming to you and will be there in fact picking up over the next few minutes. cross junction or winchester and stephen city with showers and heaviest stuff is still west into west virginia but it's woodstock and this is headed toward luray as well. front royal you had a shower and that one is stuff behind it. these showers much-needed and we may only get a couple of tenths maybe a quarter inch out of this but boy we need it because when you go back and look since september 1st at national airport, more than 4.5 inches below normal. and almost 5 inches below normal at dulles during the same period. dry after today in the seven day and then the bigger story is going to be the chill on saturday. winds they're starting to pick up to our north and west and got some 24 in martinsburg and 22 leesburg and 23 in manassas
difference here. we're 62 and again i think that's about as warm as we are going to get today. 0s and 0s in the mountains and a few flakes in the highest elevation too. so officially 62. currently northwest wind at 12 and the dew point at 52. that's going to drop off. once this system passes, high pressure out to the west, that's going to build in. so we're going to be a pretty quiet shape here for the next couple of days. you'll notice the showers around this afternoon. coming through by 5:00, 5:30. most of them will be south and east of d.c.. and then we'll see a co breezy evening and by 8:00, back in the 0s and -- 40s and 50s. 63 today and scattered showers becoming windy. 44 tonight. with 30s in the suburbs. 63-degrees tomorrow. breezy and cool. veterans day, breezy and cool. 61. now the weekend, look at this, the terps are home that's going to be the cold day of the week 593. blustery. milder sunday for the skins at home. 64 and then monday and tuesday,
fellow citizens because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. that's how this country has moved forward for 240 years. and promoted freedom around the world. that's how we've expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. it's how we have come this far, and that's why i'm confident that this incredible journey that we're on as americans will go on, and i'm looking forward to doing everything i can to make sure that the next president is successful in that.
this job as being a relay runner. you take the baton, you run your best race, and hopefully, by the time you hand it off, you're a little further ahead, you've made a little progress, and i can see we've done that and i want to make sure that handoff is well executed because, ultimately, we're all on the same team. all right. thank you very much, everybody. ( applause ) obama beginning perhaps what is the single greatest obligation of any president, the peaceful transition of power, not just peaceful but magnanimous transition of power to a political opponent. john dickerson, we are also experiencing a very rare moment in american history looking at the numbers on our wall here, it appears that hillary clinton has lost badly in the electoral
point, the popular vote, something that's only happened four times previously in american history, and three of those times were in the 19t 19th century, then, of course, a lot of us remember the only other time that happened and that was the year 2000. >> that's right, and tim kaine, her running mate, mentioned that early in his remarks before hillary clinton came out to talk to her supporters as if to ratify her message. and there will be a lot of talk about mandates, but if more clinton, that's something her supporters hold on to. you know, barack obama talked about passing the baton not to the runner he had hoped for. but, you know, i've talked to him and he talks about what george w. bush did to prepare the way for him and to see him refer to george w. bush and keep that going as the last act of a presidency, to keep it smart and tidy for the next person, that is the first symbol of that transfer of power. >> pelley: margaret brennan is
