10:07 pm
we've got from 5 to even 17 mile per hour winds. but if you look at the direction of those arrows, that wind flow is coming straight up from the south and we're going to see those winds increase tomorrow and that's going to boost our temperatures so our daytime highs is going to be well above as we head into the low 60s. but for tonight a different story. a cool 36 degrees with those cloudy skies. request those ures rising overnight. your full forecast is coming up in just a bit and that all-important 7-day forecast. >> that recent blizzard and cold temperatures across our air area, crews in fairfax county were out training for ice rescues. as we've shown you in recent weeks, several dogs have been rescued after falling through the ice and becoming stuck in freezing water. >> a big concern for people is we want to stay off the ice. the ice may look safe but the area around northern virginia
10:08 pm
routinely does not get cold enough for the ice to harden to be able to support a human's weight, let alone an animal. we've had 70 and 80 pound dogs that have gone through the ice. >> the captain also says with the expected temperatures over the weekend it's just another rvrn to stay off ice. thousands of people including president obama come to pay their respects to justice scalia. >> the gop is just hours away from the south carolina clash. everything you need to know about what's at stake in tomorrow's primary. >> who could forget -- we're taking 5i live look there at the supreme court where the body of antonin scalia was lying in repose. what jonathan papelbon is saying about his fight with bryce harper.

10:26 pm
years, they gathered tonight to play checkers. hopefully someone can help them out. researchers say doing away with the $100 bill would disrupt the business model of taxi vaders, criminals, terrorists and those engaged in bribery. lawrence somers agrees and says it is time to eliminate the $100 bill from circulation. >> it's called the bin laden bill because it's just preferred financial tool for unsavory activities around the world. something like maybe $362 billion between 2003 and 2009. it's a huge amount of money that uses cash. and chiefly the $100 bill. >> so they think if we got rid of it, the crimina

10:31 pm
he would hand out to the children. a source close to the investigation tells us carraway allegedly had the children take pictures of themselves committing sex acts. >> funeral services will be held tomorrow for supreme court justice antonin scalia. his body lay in repose today. thousands of people filed past his casket at the supreme court including president and mrs. obama, members of congress, former law clerks and his family. >> voters in two states will be casting ballots tomorrow. people will be caucusing in nevada to choose which democratic candidate they prefer. and in south carolina republicans are holding their primary. polls show donald trump leading, but the second or third place still up for grabs. >> let's start with south carolina.
10:32 pm
because south carolina has done pretty well predicting who the eventual nominee is going to be. >> except for 2012. but nobody has won new hampshire and south carolina and not won the republican nomination. so if donald trump goes on to win tomorrow, that's a really good sign for him. >> if he does win, the polls are showing that he's doing fairly well, but he may not run away with it totally. you still see some surging you said among marco rubio, perhaps. >> he got a big boost by getting the endorsement of nikki haley. he's with a youthful tableau. and you see this new generation of republicans. but you've also got ted cruz out there and he's got this evangelical support, so he might be able to get out his voters the way he did
10:33 pm
just don't know with donald trump. a lot of his supporters are new voters. so whether they actually go out, it could be that saturday will help because he might get more people to go out who feel less pressed because it's a weekend. then you've got jeb bush trying to hang on with his fingernails right now. but this could be your version of the hunger games. for some people to go on, somebody has to disappear. and if i were a better man right now, i would say if jeb bush doesn't perform well even with his mom and his brother campaigning for him, he might be the one who has to say good buy. >> the popular thinking is rubio and cruz are fighting for second place. any chance one of them scores an upset? >> you never know. rubio has been surging, he's been getting big crowds, he's got enthusiasm. that could happen. he really did quite well in iowa the most recent polls do suggest there is a little bit of movement his way. but once again polls are
10:34 pm
you can see donald trump at 35% another one at 25. you can see 24 and 16. they just don't know who's going to go out and vote and polls have to rely on who the likely voter is. they don't have a clear. >> that's the other thing. they're splitting up all of these votes. they have to get a certain number of delegates. how long can this go on before we see who the nominee is going to be? >> again, this is interesting. donald trump has been polling it about the 30 to 36 point range at in that area. some people think he has a ceiling. let's say some of these other folks drop out. if donald trump does have a ceiling, could it be that the other candidates, ted cruz, marco rubio, john kasich, they could be dividing up these votes. but maybe dividing them up in enough ways that they all go to the convention with a fair number of votes and who knows what will happen then. >> let's talk about nevada. the democrats, what do you
10:35 pm
>> well again, the basketball great yogi berra said, i never make predictions, especially about the future. there are no reliable polls about nevada, there just aren't. you don't know who is going to go in caucus. caucuses there are relatively new. so will bernie sanders generate the enthusiasm of the new voter? will hillary clinton's firewall stand? she does not want another loss. she does not quantity the narrative suggesting that 2008 is happening all over again. she wants to go into south carolina with a bit of momentum, win two in a row and start running the table at that point. but the last thing she wants is for the narrative of doubt to develop. >> in continuing the lying in trust issues too that people seem to think about her as well. has an impact on her moving forward. >> it has an impact on her moving forward and it's had an impact
10:36 pm
resurgence. a lot of people say i'm not sure they can trust her even though she is eminently qualified to be president. in this election qualifications and experience seem to matter a lot less than these other intangible factors of passion and energy that people like sanders and trump are harnessing. >> wanting an outsider. >> in a different time for sure. >> it's certainly been a fascinating campaign so far. thanks very much. >> coming up, the mysterious sound that's tormenting a community out west. >> it just might be the defining moment of the nationals' season last year. what jason papelbon is saying about his fight with bryce happener. >> gas prices are driving higher. up four straight days a gallon will cost you around 1.70
10:37 pm
that's down more than $0.50 from last year. grocery prices falling in january and get this, egg prices cooking up their biggest monthly drop in more than five years. stocks dropping on friday, the dow off 21 points but still closing the week with its best gains of the year. and virgin galactic unveiling a new version of its space ship 2 rocket remember the first one broke apart midair. even with that accident more than 700 people have signed up for a potential rocket blast. the cost of the ride? $250,000. that's business. business.

10:46 pm
papelbon who was suspended met with reporters today for the first time since reporting to spring training earlier this year. he admitted the incident was entirely his fault and said he's talked to all of his teammates throughout the off season. >> with what happened last year, i was in the wrong. and it should have never went down that way and i understand that and i had a lot of time all season to reflect on that. i've had three months to think about it. so i've done a lot of reflecting and i think sometimes in life good things can come out of bad situations. >> the nationals kick off their spring training schedule march 2nd against the tampa rays. >> with any luck, it will look a little bit more like spring and baseball season. >> this was are

for dozens of kids with special needs in our area. >> dozens of children hit the ice at the washington capitals ice rink. today's event was put on by an organization called dreams for kids dc. the group partnered with the washington capitals and monumental sports to bring smiles to those children's faces. >> so incredible to see the sparkle in the eye when they get on the ice and they know they can do this. a lot of them it's their first time ever trying skating or sledding and to have not only bonds here backing them but also the caps players on the ice inspiring them, it's so wonderful to see. >> it's really cool to see how well some people are doing and some first timers, some veterans. but it's cool to see everyone having a lot of fun no matter what level they are. >> this is the sixth year for the event. for some children this was their very first time pu
10:48 pm
skates or riding a sled. i've never been on skates. >> never? >> i never have. >> spring is right around the corner and lots of us dig into our closets and do some spring cleaning. that's exactly what oprah winfrey is doing but she is giving away a lot of her designer clothes and turning them over to ebay. the proceeds will benefit one of her many causes. the oprah winfrey leadership academy foundation. >> i can only imagine. can you imagine having one of o's shorts. >> and apparently she's going to part with it for little money. >> it will be great. >> i'm sure the ebay prices. >> that's the thing. >> you can bid. >> they'll bid on it zblsmt they'll start low. >> that $200 shirt will soon be $1,000. >>
10:49 pm
>> we've got a nice weekend in story. >> we do. and we won't need any winter jackets from oprah tomorrow. we've got some spring-like conditions heading our way. if you haven't been to six flags recently you don't have to go anywhere, because the roller coaster is back in terms of the temperatures. up and down and all over the place. once again, we've dealt with it before and it happening. once again where we go way down and right back up again and then down all over again and that's what our weather story is about. but tonight we've got clouds and those clouds are going to move in right into the course of the overnight hours and continue to do so. we've got satellite radar for you. you can see a little bit of precipitation to the north of us, but other than that not much happening. now, we're also talking with our weather headlines, we've got a great saturday ahead for you. sunday could end with a little bit of rain, we're going to watch that closely, and next week's storm, a couple of systems and it's just turning out to be complicated for us. but right now as i showed you,
10:50 pm
mostly cloudy skies tonight in the overnight hours and that's going to continue through. and our current temperatures right now, take a look. 37 degrees at gaithersburg, that's the same at baltimore. we've got 40 at dc, 38 at annapolis, 40 degrees at hagerstown this hour, 39 at martinsburg, 41 at winchester and 42 at dulles. we've got a warm front that's pushed through tonight and that's where we thought we might see a stray shower or two, but most of that stayed well to the north of us. nothing to the south at all. but this also continued to bring in the clouds in. the overcast skies are there, dry. but we're going to see the temperatures start to rise. and that has to do with the wind flow. we've had fairly light winds but those winds are going to be gusty once we head into late tonight and into tomorrow. but what that's going to do is boost our temperature, because those winds are coming in from the south. so as we take a look just a little bit ahead, you can see tomorrow in the 8:00 hour, winds are
10:51 pm
hour in the city, 26 to the north and we've in the teens and once we get to 1:00 in the afternoon, 16 mile per hour wind gusts, 20 to the south of us. saturday night they increase even more. anywhere from about 18 to 27 mile per hour wind gusts. but as i mentioned, this is going to help to boost our temperatures and that warm air is going to hit us right to head us right to the low 60s for tomorrow. and it's going to feel like it's spring. so the warm air is going to move in. we've got another system that's going to start to approach. this one however has the chance of bringing some showers when we get into the later part of sunday. so be prepared for that. a little cooler on sunday but we're still into the upper 50s and the low 60 degrees range. your highest tomorrow into the low 60s. not bad at all and overnight lows on the chilly side into the 30s. low to mid 30s pretty much everywhere. your planner for tomorrow, by about midday we're actually going to be at about 58 degrees a
10:52 pm
by the 5:00 hour we'll be about 60 degrees. so that warm air is definitely going to be in place and you will get to enjoy it. ridge of high pressure in control once we get to the early part of the week but we've got two storm systems to watch. with these storm systems how long will this cold air stay in place and will it end up giving us more rain, a little bit of snow or a wintry mix? it looks like the first one is going to be the one that's probably closer intact with that colder air. the second one will move in once we get into the wednesday period but the cold air looks like it might be out of the way so we'll have to watch that closely. here's a look at your 7-day forecast. it will start to cool down by the time we get to hump day. that's what that first, second system i should say starts to move in. so we'll watch that closely for you. other than that, a great weekend. >> love it. going to enjoy it while i can. >> thank you much. we've been celebrating the lives of many great leaders this black history month
