and that's it for "fox5 local news at 10". news at 11 starts now. right now at 11:00 after two days of record breaking heat we are officially changing seasons overnight. and snow is on the way and i'll let you know what to expect. >> plus, a local coach facing disturbing charges and tonight investigators wants to know if there are more vick films throughout. >> and tense moments during a house fire what firefighters went top to rescue an elderly woman. your news start right now. >> let's get right to. it we hope you enjoyed today's spring like temperatures because there's winter weather headed our way. thanks for staying us with i'm shawn yancy. >> i'm tony perkins. >> it's hard to believe much of the area could see snow overnight and it might cause problems for morning commute. sue palka has latest update here she is with more.
>> tony, timing is bad for the morning commute. now listen there's no question that is right warm air we had today and yesterday will limit accumulations and we believe as storm approaches heavy burst of snow between 5 and 8 in the morning and that's when we may get the bull of being of this and even if it doesn't stick it may be hard to drive in because the rate at which it falls makes visibility challenges as it is it stats rain and may begin in a few areas by midnight and begins 1 to 3 in the morning and then dhaivrps to snow north and west and that's why we have so many winter storm warnings that you see in pink for heavier amounts of snow and norm of the district wiptser weather advisories. in the purple areas that's where you have a chance of seeing a delay. but i really hope you did your homework because if this moves through fast enough there might not be much going on in many of these areas after 8 or 9 in the morning and but could be definitely a challenge to drive around in those hours between
between 1 and 3 in the morning and might be earlier maybe midnight and rain changes to snow before sunrise and even if not down to freezing we could see snow. a lot would melt off pavement. if it's heavy enough i think hours between 5 and 8 could be challenging to say the least and visibility may be not only something you will have to deal with but possibly slick spots if it falls heavy enough to cover roads mainy north. the jackpot surprise towards frederick, martinsburg, hagerstown, west mipster and cumberland and you see 4:00 in the morning we're raining in the district and see snow north and west and then off a i sudden we drop 6:00 in the morning to 34 district and we're snowing by the time we get to 8 a lot is pushing east we still have snow showers lingering tomorrow afternoon. more on that and the temperature change we're expecting in a little bit. shawn. >> thank you, sue. >>

heavy. and we think it's windy tomorrow, too. i don't feel like we paid enough attention to that. wind blowing snow around. could be again checking morning commute. not bad after for evening commute but we have not eliminated snow showers from the afternoon too and sometimes those can be pretty vigorous especially when strong wind coming through and oh, it's about that temperature and will be hard to overcome warm air although the storm system looks like it will do it and we expect rain which is beginning now across the area to changeover. but it's still 5 in district as shawn mentioned and it's 48 gauge rzburg and even in normally cold and northern erin western suburbs still in mid 40s. to be honest that was expected and this forecast is on track. it's pittsburgh that has the cold air and as the storm system crosses mountains it brings cold air with. it columbus 29 and chicago 20. new york city i hope they're about
them. they'll have tough travel philly, boston, and we start to see the rain beginning in foreign suburbs and also down to south and west. it's very light so just wet for now and as we go through the overnight hours closer to 3, 4:00 in the morning and this khavrps over. changeover is happening towards garrett country and you see that out there. pittsburgh is getting snow and that's swinging through our area once the cold air pulls on in and the storm starts moving over to the delmarva. that changes snow over to rain and again heaviest snow will be norm of us and want to show you two different ways of lookinging at the♪ amounts. again, coating to maybe inch on grassy areas for d.c., prince george county and over to fairfax country and most point south. i'm not sure you'll see more out of southern maryland you certainly have better storms more recently. inp are two as you getnt
winter weather add vusry areas and jackpot along the mason dixon line two to 6" to hagerstown, then pan handle and then moun taps. 6 to 9". this is different look inhouse model we'll starthis at 1:00 in the morning and it's saying two tenth s of of inch of snow and run this to 6:00 in the morning and gives again heavier snow totals north and has us half inch by 6:00 in the morning and maybe 1.6 dulles and some areas enough snow for two hour delays until schools can see what's going on with the snow. but by the time we get to noon hour notice we only gotten half in. in the district. maybe tenth on grass down to the south and inch per annapolis and 1.5 baltimore and close to heavier snow just up through pennsylvania. it will be interesting to watch this i mentioned winds. i think winds will be a g big deal tomorrow. look at wind gusts tomorrow morning. first out of the east as storm is cranking. and we've got a range of 2
41 those are wind gusts and then as we get to noon hour winds are more out of north so that's bringing in the colder air and these are gusting to 4 miles an hour and but temperatures dropping as well. by 6:00 we have strong wind going and hopefully dries everything up and expect it to feel like in teens and 20s as we go through the day tomorrow. one good thing you see on the 7 day forecast for those of who you don't like it cold or chilly on friday and bounce up by saturday 20 warmer than friday. sunday 70 with spotty shower and another great day coming and even most of next week we're featuring temperatures above average. so hang in there and be careful tomorrow and if you can postpone travel a little bit shipingz will be better after 8:00 in the morning. shawn, tony, that's your 7 day. >> thank you, sue. >> coming up next nfl owners and politics. >> as redskins star accepteding a message with instagram
