12:15 pm
social media pages and of course join that conversation. some of you who won't be there for the big day wasn't of the people is -- one of the people is virginia congressman jerry connelly. one of 60 democratic lawmakers on the list now of not going to attend mr. trump's inauguration. the president-elect's inauguration. connelly said he made the decision because of the way the president-elect fought back after congressman john lewis called him an illegitimate president. every inauguration though had at least about 100 members of congress who don't show up for a variety of reasons. >> have you ever wondered how much this inauguration will cost and who's paying for it? we'll tell you how much it is -- we'll give you this picture right now of the trump family. >> coming down the steps of air force two. they just left new york and have since landed here at joint based andrews and you see ivanka there holding one of their children. >> lot of work going on in the house in the neighborhood. right now as we noticed yesterday. with the -- tweet and
12:16 pm
our colleague and enadam and we trump right now deplaning, marla maples' daughter and donald trump's daughter. >> want to talk to producer larry for a second. did donald trump come down the steps or coming down last raise it appears? >> we're still waiting for donald trump to come down and again as mentioned mike, this is air force two not air force one until he officially becomes president which will happen around noon tomorrow as he's supposed the take the oath after office and also give the inaugural address. here on the steps of the -- u.s. capitol right here the west lawn. >> right over our shoulder, what a beautiful vantage point we have. >> we were talking about this earlier, there's a sea of chairs. right in front of it to set up is -- the set up is pretty spectacular and we are also along the parade route here on pennsylvania avenue. just one of the best seats in the house right now for all of the inaugural coverage. >> so in about 24 hours, we will get a chance to get a front row seat to the 58th inauguration in u.s. presidential history. it's going to be very interesting. donald trump has promised to keep
12:17 pm
short. he says look i want to just get back to work -- >> there's two things and that's the economy as well as the security. he's going to talk about bringing more jobs back the america which is a platform that he used when he was stumping for the presidency. and he's also going to talk about security and defeating isis and there you see him right there. president-elect donald trump. along with his wife melania. >> future first lady. there they are waving to the crowds at joint based andrews. and as we said he has a busy day ahead. going to attend a bunch of events today leading up to tomorrow. also we've seen the reports that president obama will have him over for coffee in the morning. and husbands and wives will get together. and that's the beginning of the transition of power tomorrow morning. so -- there's a lot still to get done today. and the president-elect now on the ground here in th
12:18 pm
>> one of the things we're also following right now and they are very fortunate that it's not raining here in our area. and the temperatures right now could not be any better, we're talking january 19th and it's 50 degrees. >> january 19th. 50 degrees and it may go up to mid 50s. let's check on the weather now as we worry about the rain for tomorrow's festives, howard? >> i'm here mike and jan. good morning everyone. yeah tomorrow we have a threat of rain unlike today which is very nice. we're going to have some mid- morning to early afternoon light rain showers but enough to make everything damp out there. and with temps in the 40s, it's going to be a little bit on the raw side. but better in the afternoon. i think we'll clear out from the rain anyway relatively early in the afternoon. with highs near 50 degrees. right now lots of high clouds coming through and some sunshine through that and here's a live look at the michael & son weather camera. you see the breaks there in the overcast. this afternoon, mostly cloudy but mid 50s. wind not that bad at all. they'll be west-northwest northwest 5 miles
12:19 pm
and turning to the east and south tonight. less than 5. and while it's 50 in town. lots of areas in the upper 40s except in the mountains where we're still holding on to the lower 30s at this hour. so while we're looking at -- again a reagan national, officially cloudy no wind. and the temperature right at 50 degrees. so where's winter? you've been wondering about it. it's up in alaska. fairbanks right now 41 below. they hit 50 below the other day. that's the coldest they've been in five years. that's the first time. but western canada, is in the 30s and edmonton and calgary and you don't see any arctic air across the country because the air is coming off the pacific. while that continues the really cold stuff that's going to stay up in alaska. now another storm coming in towards the west and this is what we're looking at for tomorrow. looks like we'll be okay. we've got the woman's march on saturday and the weather for that looks just fine. our three day forecast, today 56 pleasant. 40 tonight. tomorrow we're going to have the mid-morning to early afternoon i'm thinking 10:00 to 2:00 is the critical time for showers in the city. 49.
12:20 pm
as we head toward sunday and monday, looks like more rain moves in. clearing out after tuesday morning and wednesday looks nice upper 50s. jan and mike? >> all right howard thanks so much. back to joint based andrews where the president-elect donald trump just arrived on air force two with his family. he officially takes the oath of office tomorrow around noon right here behind us just two blocks from where we currently are right now. at the u.s. capitol on the west lawn there. >> and he's getting ready to get into his motorcade. i'm not sure what kind of way he travels in new york city. but this is much different when it comes to security. the highly protective suv there that we've seen the obama family travel around in the last eight years. so -- it's going to be interesting. he's got a lot of people with him too. not just you know one vehicle he can get them all in. >> got a big crowd with him as well. a big family and there's a lot escort also here on the national mall. we'll have more coverage of the inauguration of 2017 when we
12:21 pm
12:22 pm
12:23 pm
all right, let's take a look at donald trump's motorcade leaving joint based andrews, this is a live picture, we saw air force two land on the tarmac a short time ago. donald trump deplaned with what looked like his entire family getting off all the kids and his wife melania and they're on their way to big event today. >> pretty incredible because he just left new york city at 11:00 a.m. before making his way to queens and laguardia airport there to board air force two. we know that he is going to be going to a wreath laying ceremony but he's also going to be speaking at the make america great again inaugural concert at 4:00 p.m. the headliners there again toby keith and three doors down and lee greenwood and that will be after voices of the people, the 1:00 p.m. gu
12:24 pm
some local bands. and some bands also around the country that had to apply in order to perform and they are also going to be here. we actually saw some of them walking down pennsylvania avenue and we have a great vantage point of really everything here and we saw them walking down earlier going through the security check points. >> there must have been some of the high school bands. montgomery county has a list of bands from several high schools and they are going to be involved. the d.c. pipe band. is going to be involved as well. and as donald trump is known to do, he was tweeting this morning on his way here and he just said getting ready to leave for washington, d.c.. the journey begins and i will be working and fighting very hard to make a great journey for all americans. so he's excited to get started on a very busy day and of course the big moment tomorrow about 24 hours from now. >> and very excited to get started alone because we know that his son barron and his wife will be staying in new york city as barron finishes this year of school before they make the transition to the white house. as well. >> a lot of people are reaching
12:25 pm
to welcome them in. and of course the obamas have to be out of the white house by tomorrow. and they're finishing and moving over to the neighborhood in northwest d.c. and then in moves the trump family. >> along with the trump family too. we know that ivanka trump and her family are also moving not too far from the obamas there. they are going to have sort of a coffee -- ceremony. >> a little coffee -- >> breakfast in the morning. >> husbands and wives get together and then they have coffee in the morning at the white house. and then they go together and that's another symbol of the transition a peaceful transition of power. they go together to the capitol to start the ceremony. >> right what's also interesting is that presidents in the past, whenever they were done in office, they pretty much went home and their home was not in d.c.. the president's home of course is in hyde park near chicago. and illinois. but he's going to be staying here in town. so his -- youngest daughter can finish high school and at sidwell friends. that's why they are staying in the neighborhood to finish that. so interestingly he's going to be taking his final trip on air force one and he's going to take that to
12:26 pm
take a little vacation. >> play golf out there in cafor he wants to take it easy and also said hey look i'm not setting my alarm clock. forget it. actually relax. >> it's so interesting, i remember the first lady was interviewed and they said what's the one thing you look forward to when your husband is finally out of office. she said i can't wait to roll the windows down in the car and finally get the smell of fresh air because they had so much tight security for the past eight years. >> nothing likely used to have. >> now donald trump is going to get a taste of it. >> which is interesting i'm sure he probably had some sort of security around new york but nothing like secret service attention. >> 24/7. all day every day everywhere he goes. >> as we continue here. people are all coming down here today for the concert and tomorrow for the inauguration ceremony. howard? >> yeah guys no problems today. we've got some clouds and some breaks but looks pretty nice out. with temps in the mid 50s 68 tomorrow is going to be a little bit problematic, and you
12:27 pm
bring the rain gear, by mid- morning we'll have some light rain moving in but by early afternoon, it should be clearing out. with highs tomorrow upper 40s to around 50. wear a poncho one of the small personal like tote tapetum bale las -- type umbrella, but the big ones no. they're going to take them from you. the 49 tomorrow and 10:00 a.m. to 1:00, 2:00 that's about the big time for the rain. probably right during the inauguration. but the parade i think we dry out. 58 saturday. dry and mild. sunday and monday, more rain returns into early tuesday. temperatures then low 50s but wednesday looks like another golfable day guys, highs upper 50s to near 60. >> all right thanks a lot howard, drying out for the parade that's good news if the rain hopefully will move out and people won't want to get wet. >> all right that's it for us here at noon. we'll be accurate 5:00. by the way -- back at 5:00. by the way it's mike's birthday. he's # 21 today. >> again. >> 21 again. see you back here tomorrow
12:28 pm
take care everybody.
12:29 pm
12:30 pm
>> devon: i'm gonna tell you the same thing that i told hilary. i don't want to dwell on new year's eve and what happened with the wreck that night and everything else. it's over. it doesn't matter. and we're moving on, okay? >> mariah: i know, i know. hilary told me. but i really, really need you to listen to me. >> devon: go for it. >> mariah: ever since the accident, i have been blaming myself over choosing a terrible time to try and get revenge on hilary. it was stupid. i am embarrassed for how i acted. look, i didn't think that the whole teleprompter thing would be -- >> devon: teleprompter thing? >> mariah: yeah, the one that hilary was using at the gala. look, i-i know that there are some things that you don't remember from that night, but now that hilary's filled you in, i really, really would like to apologize. i shouldn't haveha
