a victim who lives along a very busy rig's road thought she was buying an iphone. police say when the suspect showed up at her door he pulled out a gun, forced his way into'6 the home and demanded all her money. police just arrested a 7 year old because he went inside a victim's house. this isn't the first time this has happened and it serves as a gentle reminder to be very caution. offer up even warns its buyers and sellers to know who you are dealing with through reputation and safety features. never set up a meeting at your home. also make sure if you're doing business on here to find a public place to meet, even better, their advice, find your local pollicitation and offer that as a meeting place and if you have a big or heavy item to sell and someone needs you to come to your house, make sure someone else is there with you
12:46 am
guys, back to you. good advice. thank you, sarah. > all right. so today in the 70s, tomorrow another nice day, tomorrow night possible snow. you know what i'm thinking, here's what could happen, it could be the kind ever thing thursday morning when we look out snowing like crazy and not sticking to the streets because it's too warm. maybe it sticks on grass. i do think in the winter storm areas that it does come down heavily that your streets could be impacted. that is north of 730 and over toward winchester. be aware of that, but let's see if this changes. the models are trying to be a little bit more aggressive. when you're 73 and then the 6 20s. you can't get rid of the heat in the pavement that fast. it's challenging for snow lovers. we want to start with another big story tonight because mr. was a state emergency declared in louisiana today, 12 reports of tornadoes really hard
12:47 am
orleans where the same areas that were devastated by katrina got hit again. fortunately no fatalities, but a couple dozen injuries and then the same line of storms, as you can see, tearing up an area that absolutely doesn't need to deal with this again. big damage to even brick structures t exactly what they don't need to so. i wanted to show you that these were some of the touchdowns today even forth of baton rouge and as we expand the picture that's severe weather also effected portions of mississippi and there was an one on the east coast of florida. there has been a tremendous squall line as i put it in motion. this is what went through new orleans earlier today. as we follow that up the east coast there's a little bit of moisture off to the west. we could see a couple of spotty showers later tonight. i can't completely rule them out tomorrow, either. it's really tomorrow night if we'll be a able to see if rain is able to change over
12:48 am
for most of our area. we're even thinking we tie a record are tomorrowment forecast high for to your knowledge 68, the record is 68. again, today, first time we've been at 70 since february of to 2012. we're still 60-degrees now. it's 67 in martinsburg, 65 cull pep per, 6 # in quantico. it will take time for the cold air to move in. the frontal boundary comes through in the afternoon maybe with a couple showers and then that cold air slowly but surely tries to trickle in for two days of chillier temperatures thursday and friday. > and matter to your knowledge you can see that we've got some clouds in the morning but we're 57. up to 66 by p noon. by 4:00 that breeze is quite noticeable. let's go to 11:00. we're still in the 40s, but where it begins to snow like you see in cumberland it drops down to 39. our in-house mold is showing the snow and this is the gf
12:49 am
american model, showing snow but 43 degrees in gaithersburg. does some of that melt or does it accumulate because it's coming down so quickly? > 2000 according to our model snow at 6 in the morning and rain to the south and the east. look at how the temperatures begin to drop in the morning. the 40s will be very early. we'll drop through the 30s through the day and some of the snow streamers or squall may set up and that could be down an additional inch or two as we go through the day and head to the 20s at night. it could be from 2 to as many as five inches of snow. it's an inch or two on grass. more like a coating on grass to maybe an inch. again, stay tuned because we want to make sure that this doesn't change but you that would definitely be somewhat disruptive on thursday evening. we head down to 25 friday morning. friday's temperature
12:50 am
but then a big warmup saturday, 68, sunday 65. we're even warm monday and tuesday of next week. so get your pictures while you can and make sure you tweet them to me. > a loss angels mansion is the most expensive house listed for sale in the united states for $250 million. the four level 38,000 square foot home has 12 bedroom suites 21 bathrooms, three kitchen, the spa, the bowling alley, the 40 seat movie theater, a massive swimming pool. you guys got to see the swimming pool. when i invite people over for pool parties we have a blast because we have a stunning 20-foot tv. if you would like to buy my hours, the price tag includes a fleet of exotic and vintage cars. it's all worth $7 million. i have seven full time house
12:51 am
the developer claims only 3,000 people in the world can actually afford to buy it. > we don't know whose house it is. >> the developer's house. > that is a gorgeous house. >> it's too much house. it's beautiful. 38,000 square feet. you might be able to move your whole family in. but remember the up keep. > if you can afford it -- people who can afford it are not thinking anything like that. we got to go apparently. coming up next, the high school basketball
