fox 5 gary mcgrady in our weather center. >> nothing much has really changed with this storm. i'm going over all the new information. everything seems to be on track, not a lot of snow for us, but we will be getting colder, much colder by late tomorrow and then through the day sunday. we start with radar, show you what's going on right now. we're seeing a little bit more in precipitation coming across being a bit of rain, a mixture and snow in the gray there for the northwestern and northern parts mainly right along the i- 70 corridor to the north is where it seems to be a little light snow. that will be the greatest chance for a little bit of accumulation overnight. now as we switch over, the setup is we have some very cold air to northwest. that will come through tomorrow evening. we had this storm system pulling from the south and it's not necessarily going to stay close enough to the coast with this particular storm to bring us much in the way of a snowstorm. so we ruled that out.
10:02 pm
this looks like it will take a track out to sea far enough away from us that it's not going to be a huge problem. in terms of what we do know for this weekend, it is going to be cold, much colder than we've had in quite a while. this probably rivals the coldest air mass so far this season and we will have some accumulating snow and it likes that will come in two separate phases, more in the full forecast coming up in a little while. >> you can track the snow and falling temperatures on the fox 5 weather app. you can download it at apple's app store or the android market. search for d.c. weather or use the link on our website www.myfoxdc.com. some breaking news in maryland, a vigil for a teenager killed this week ends in gunfire. police are still on the scene now in new carrollton where more than 100 people turned out to remember liz smith. >> reporter: still a very active scene here. behind me more than a dozen shivers and they're still

the murder trial of the former uva student charged with murdering his ex-girl friend. george huguely broke down in tears today while listening to a videotaped interview he gave police on the morning of his arrest. fox 5's paul wagner has today's testimony from charlottesville. >> reporter: george huguely wiped tears from his eyes and repeatedly sipped from a cup of water on the desk in front of him as the tape was played for the jury. at first a goingy sounding huguely sounded matter of fact -- a groggy sounding huguely sounded matter of fact. that is until he was told yeardley love was dead. just before 8:00 the morning of may 3rd, 2010, george huguely walks into an interview room at police headquarters and begins to tell his story to detective lisa reeves. after waiving his miranda rights huguely tells police he went to love's apartment because i just wanted to talk to her about what happened the
10:08 pm
week before when love attacked huguely over allegations of infidelity. sounding like he had just woken up huguely said yardley started freaking out when i came in the room and i told her to chill out. i shook her and her head hit the wall. as the interview went on huguely said, "i was holding her arms. we were wrestling a little. the detective asked it you touch her neck area, choke her? huguely replied i never strangled her. i may have grabbed her neck, but i never strangled her. as the interview went on huguely first denied taking anything from the apartment, then admitted he took love's computer and threw it in a dumpster. all this time he apparently had no idea love was dead and never asked about her condition. when detective reeves said george, she's dead and you killed her, the defendant became distraught first saying she's dead? she's dead? how is she dead? i don't believe you. did you smack her head against the wall the detective asked? no. didn't hurt her.

an about face from the obama administration after a major backlash over a controversial contraception rule. the president now says religious-based employers will not be provided to require women with birth control. not everyone is happy with the compromise. >> reporter: the white house calls it an accommodation, not a compromise, but religious hospitals and universities will not be required to tell employees their insurance includes free birth control. president obama hopes this will be the solution to a growing
10:14 pm
controversy over the contraception mandate in the new healthcare law. >> if a woman's employer is a charity or hospital that has a religious objection to providing contraceptive services as part of their health plan, the insurance company, not the hospital, not the charity, will be required to reach out and offer the woman contraceptive carefree of charge. >> reporter: not everyone is happy with it. the fund for religious liberty, an organization leading three lawsuits against the mandate, calls the offer a false compromise. utah republican senator orrin hatch who cosponsored the religious freedom act almost 20 years ago released a statement saying this is about religious freedom and anything short of a full exemption is no compromise and mitt romney took a swipe from the campaign trail. >> my presidency will be a pro life presidency and i will reverse every single obama regulation that attacks our religious liberty and threatens innocent life in this country.
10:15 pm
>> reporter: the president spoke with archbishop timothy dolan, head of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops. he said he's studying change. mr. obama spoke with sister carol keenan who said she is pleased with the administration's change. let's bring in fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin for more on this birth control debate. is obama pandering to the left? >> this is barack obama's strategy and methodology, brian, which is kind of split the difference and find out what is politically palatable to both sides, but he might be displeasing both sides. the catholic amp bishop cardinal dolan was -- archbishop cardinal dolan was actually brought into the oval office to discuss this months ago and said it's a step in the right direction, but it's really politics. it's about the swing vote which
10:16 pm
are catholic voters. they're not a monolith but they're very weary of alienating a group he carried by nine percentage points and i think vice president biden probably talked him into the compromise. >> is this over yet? >> i don't think it's over. i think as you saw with the clips romney and gingrich said this is a war on religion. this is going to be a theme of republicans during the entire campaign that this administration is anti- religion, that is not sufficiently protective of religious liberty and religious freedom and there's a real divide about religion in this country and republicans are going to try to portray president obama and the democrats as not being sensitive to religious freedom and liberty. >> do you think president obama did lessen damage to the catholic vote? >> no. i think he thought and i think he's capable of more changes or more concessions or more compromises, but what did he did think is that they were out of step with voters that are
10:17 pm
the major swing vote in white working class people in industrial states like pennsylvania, ohio, wisconsin and they don't want to lose that vote. >> all right. mark plotkin, thanks for coming in. >> thanks, brian. many people would agree the most dreaded part of getting your driver's license is parallel parking during the driving test, but not in d.c. in fact, the test is no longer included, at least not for now. the reason? the dmv claims it cannot find the adequate space it needs to test out drivers. the city hopes to reinstate that test sometime next year. if you live in the district, look at your street signs. the city is changing signs to meet federal standards. they'll have order natural numbers like 6th street instead of 6 street and the signs will be written in mixed case. these signs here have not been changed, but they will be in the coming weeks. even if you are in the wrong, getting a speeding ticket is frustrating, but
10:18 pm
imagine getting a speeding ticket when your car is parked. it happened on 16th street in northwest. fox 5's beth parker shows us. >> reporter: in a flash you can catch somebody speeding on 16th street in d.c. >> we've had some incidents where people were hurt and trying to cross the street and we were very interested in having ways to slow people down. >> reporter: so the folks at the israel congregation thought it was a fine idea when mpd decided to put a speed camera right in front of their synagogue. >> we thought it was a great thing. >> reporter: until a member of the congregation got a speeding ticket on a car that not only wasn't speeding, it wasn't moving at all. >> it does sound pretty funny. parked cars don't usually get speeding tickets. >> reporter: look at the photo sent with the ticket. >> you can see in the first picture where the car is parked and in the second picture the car is parked and the truck is further down the road of. >> reporter: your first thought might that be this camera is pointed in the wrong
10:19 pm
direction, but that's not it. you see, the whole thing is positioned in such a way that when somebody pulls up here to parallel park along 16th street which is perfectly legal, that parked car blocks the view of the lens. the solution they've decided is to move the whole box about a block north to a spot at the next intersection where you can't parallel park. >> their response was quick and appropriate and considerate and everything you would want a city government to be. >> reporter: mpd tells fox 5 it issued a ticket to the wrong car in that case. the congregation's executive director david zinner hopes if the word spreads about cameras in general, it would help drivers and pedestrians. >> they'll all know that there is a speed camera on the corner of 16th and john glow. don't speed there. >> reporter: the ticket has been tossed out, but they'll be hanging onto the photos for fun. >> we got lots of chuck ams out

help him win in november? from here this calendar kicks into high gear once again. on saturday we will find out who won the maine caucus and then it's off to arizona and michigan, both states holding primaries on february 28th. tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. the white house is confirming a report that president obama's new budget predicts a $1.3 trillion deficit for 2012. the deficit would drop to $901 billion next year under the administration's tax and spending policies. on monday mr. obama will repeat his call to raise income tax rates four individuals making more than $200,000 a year -- for individuals making more than $200,000 a year and families earning more than $250,000 from 35 to 36%. it has been a business i week in washington from the cpac conference to the president's birth control compromise. earlier today i talked to fox 5 sunday host chris wallace about his sunday lineup.
10:33 pm
>> we'll talk first to the new white house chief of staff jack lu, his coming on to talk about the president's budget to be unveiled monday and it sure looks like it's more of a political document than a governing plan. the chances this will get through congress, it calls for billions of dollars -- hundreds of billions of dollars more in new taxes on the wealthy, no major fundamental reform of entitlements. my guess is it will be dead on arrival on capitol hill. we'll also talk to jack lu about the controversy over birth control in the catholic church and then we'll speak with sarah palin. she is one of the people in town for the cpac conference, the conservative political action conference, and she's going to deliver the keynote address on saturday afternoon. then she'll be here on set on sunday and we'll try to probe with her to figure out who she's for in this race.
10:34 pm
she keeps saying i want to keep the race going, but we'll ask her, try to figure out between gingrich, romney, santorum and paul who she's for. >> it's been very interesting as we continue to watch the gop race now. i think last week we sort of talked about the same thing. this week we saw santorum sweep the caucuses. what do you think now about gingrich and about mitt romney? are their chances still looking good? >> not as good as they did when we talked a week ago. clearly romney after strong wins in florida and nevada looked like he reestablished his roam as the frontrunner, the aura of inevitability. that certainly has been weakened, if not destroyed by the three victories by santorum. i think in a sense it may hurt gingrich even more because gingrich was the one saying look, i'm the conservative alternative to romney. at this point there have been eight connests. santorum has won four. romney has won three. gingrich has won one.
10:35 pm
santorum can make the case he's the conservative alternative and gingrich ought to drop out. >> i know gingrich says wait until super tuesday when he hopes to pull in more wins there. it is very interesting indeed to watch. this thanks thanks for the update. we're looking forward to seeing you guys this sunday at 9 a.m. on fox 5. they're the photographs fans around the globe waited to see. we have the first pictures of beyonce's and jay-z's baby blue ivy. plus an unbelievable shot after this free shot. but first fox business network neil cavuto. >> worries on money weighing on shoppers again, consumer spending in february for the first time in six months as americans look at their bank accounts and worry about paying bills. gas prices aren't helping up about a quarter this year. meantime uncle sam is trying to figure out where drivers side doors on some toyotas are

10:47 pm
>> gary, we're getting a couple rounds of winter weather. when does the first one start? >> it's starting now. we have a little snow on the radar now and probably a little accumulation overnight tonight. storm system is just not really going to get together. so this is not a big storm by any means. we called this just a little event and some real cold stuff comes in. track this event on your fox 5 weather app. download it free. you can do it on your iphone, ipad or droid and it's free or you can text fox 5 weather to 29473. it's really handy. it's really easy to use. it's super simple and has a ton of information. i promise you you won't be disappointed you downloaded it and it's free. how bad can that be? listen, here's what we see right now. we see a little bit of rain come in across, a lot of this is heaviest of which is in montgomery county now right on top of rockville there at the
10:48 pm
270 spur and then up north where, of course, it's white. that's the snow coming across carroll county over into hartford county and we'll have waves of this overnight tonight, nothing too heavy, but up to the north and west where it's colder, that's where we'll get just a little bit of grassy accumulation. we have already seen some pretty good totals out to the west and higher elevations. in terms of the advisories in place, this has not changed from this afternoon. frederick county right here, you're in it, washington county, you're in this winter weather advisory as well as carroll county and it kind of wraps back around. frederick county, virginia as well for winchester. farther to the west the higher elevations, this is where there's a winter storm warning. we've seen a little snow flying there, a little accumulation, too. before it's all said and done you get as much as 6 to 8 inches, maybe a little bit more than that in places and that will be tonight through tomorrow till 7:00 in the
10:49 pm
evening. 43 in town. it's dropping for gaithersburg, 36, from hagerstown down to winchester temperature at freezing or nearly freezing. everybody else is still above. the real cold air is well back to the northwest. detroit just beginning to feel it at 25, chicago right now 16 degrees and that cold air will come sweeping through here. we'll really start to feel the cold air by tomorrow evening. temperatures will start to drop and the wind will begin to go up which makes it feel that much colder. look at all the snow flying back out to the west of us. now this is in association with the upper level storm system. there's a lot of moisture and thunderstorm activity way down to the south. this is in association with what will eventually be the surface storm, this coastal storm, but what we're not seeing with this particular storm is that the upper level system and the surface system aren't getting together. so they're going to stay in two pieces which means kind of just a couple weak events.
