longer to recover. >> expertson saystent sleep times waking up and going to sleep at the same time, thaess the policy. not trying to catch up on the weekend. some people are going ao get little extra sleep tomorrow morning. >> that's right. >> yeah, i'm hoping m that's in montgomery county. >> not yet though, huh? >> not yet. a lot of delays out there across the area. even prince william county with that closure. once again, the big deal snow coming in overnight tonight. actually moving in right now. winter weather advisory in effect for just about the entire region. the own exception far south, fredericksburg, leonardstown, going through 10:00 a.m. here is the snow. already seeing snow across parts of our area. reporting some gnow. reports out of northern montgomery county into parts of howard county. this is hitting the ground around i-70, damascus, a little bit of light snow there. the rest of the area seeing now, too.
back towards thewest, you can tell this not a big system. it's only a couple hundred miles wide. it's not going to take long to here.n through by this time tomorrow morning it's done and we're on to storm number two in the same day. that's what's kind of interesting with this scenario here playing out tomorrow. here's tonight. again, not much going on. but here comes the snow ar-wide by around 1:00, 2:00 in the morning. so we will see that snow coming through the d.c. met area. fredericksburg, not much there. fredericksburg, you see that sleet mixing in there. again, 5:00a.m., just about everybody seeing some snow. this when i expect toee some accumulating snow happening, especially on grassy surfaces, maybe on som of the secondary roads. however, we think most of the main roads will be okay. 8:00 a.m., i don't expect any more accumulation after the sun comes up tomorrow. what to expect for tomorroor snow the early part of the rush. delays likely on those roads, isolatedce cations. e've already seen a couple of thos
most main roads just wet, 270, the beltway, 95, 66, should be just wet but some of the secondary roads could be a problem out there early tomorrow. so how much snow? coating to an inch. d.c., waldorf, the warrenton area in the cit itself, maybe 0.7 at the airport tomorrow. 1 to inches, though, winchester, up towards frederick, pleesburgts of montgomery county, maybe up to 3 inches. the closer you are to pennsylvania, the better chance you have to see some of thatnd higher totals. this not a huge storm. again, most of this should be one by the time the sun comes up. here is the interesting part. 8:00 a.m., still some snow showers. no more accumulatio but watch this, 6:00 tomorrow night. we're all headings to you're going to be watching us tomorrow at 6:00 and then headed dinner. more snow possible around hagerstown and frederick. this could accumulate in those areas. look at the heavy rain tomorrow
night into earlyurday morning. by saturday morning, it's out of here and things change again. s 53 onurday with some cloud cover. 80% chance of p.m. rain,42 latest computer model i've seen now has a lot more snow on sunday. so this could be more of a rain-snow event. i was thinking snow maybe around hagerstown, but it may be closer to the d.c. metro area. that's something we'll track for you. lookhat happens behind this. we stay on the cold side. temperatures looking to around freezingn wednesday. arctic cold coming in.hi if you it's interesting for us, last night at this time boston was thinking masne an inch o out of this little storm system. now it could be a foot on saturday. y blow. >> i think it changed a little here, it changed a lot more for them. >> boston needs to catch up with us anyway. that's right. we're beating them, doreen. >> thanks, doug. , coming bryce harper, the phillies. hear how his new manager found hear how his new manager found e t about th

moment-by-moment tweets with us and we were gettingitally like four fans right behind where we were sitting telling u termsd, you know, who was tweeting what. we're like, well, who is making the reports. we've got to make sure this person is credible. we were a great ball club coming into spring training without bryce harper. we'rr going to be even bet with bryce harper. >> returning april 2nd.> he redskins have a list of positions they need to degrees for the upcoming season. one of the most important, the quarterback. they can select a rookie with the 15th overall pick or maybe pick up a veteran free agent. at this year's nfl combine, vice president of the player personnel doug williams says washington won't be rushing to grab just any quarterback. >> if the q is arterback there that we like at 15, you kn o, nineut of ten we'll go that route, i butf it's not somebody we like, if we got to go out and a veteran to work
with him, that's probably what we'll to. all boils down to who is en it's time for us to pick. >> all right. meanwhile, the capitals will have a playoff-like game tomorrow night. caps visit the islanders, who are twooi pnts ahead of washington. barry trotz's newlub with an interesting home schedule. splitting their games betweenen barclayter and nassau. last played there in a playoff loss against the capitals. tom wilson remembering that game fondly. >>be i rememr we shut it down. i think thathe w last -- the last game that they pyed there, right? game six. soough time for that fan base over there, but it's cool that they're going back there. pi remember they wesionate. that's for sure. you know, you definitely -- we definitely felt the hate when we were there playing that playoff series. it will be cool to get back
