(voand exceptional customerity pre-ownservice,les... head to your neighborhood enterprise car sales and let the people who buy more vehicles than anyone... flip your thinking about buying your next one. less less is dull. but more... find fantasy shows. more is amazing. more says "like that? get a load of this." dig thrillers? here's a whole thrill ride.
we turn to the latest in the battle of the zika virus. brazil says the country women provide all of the resources needed to develop a vaccine. they're working to find a vaccine against the virus. more than $100 million usd have been dedicated to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds. >> the author of "to kill a mockingbird" has died. harper lee passed away today. this is a picture of her with george w. bush. according to reports lee's health had been declining for some time now. the author's agent says he saw her just over a month ago and that her mind was as sharp
ever. >> the washington monument was closed to visitors this weekend. the damage was caused by a contractor who was working at the monument on an unrelated issue. an exact reopening date has not yet been determined. they think it will be sometime next week. >> we've had quite a time with the washington monument trying to keep it open. >> in their statement they went to great lengths to point out this is not another problem like they've had. >> people will have to go to another monument when it's so nice out there tomorrow. >> it's going to be a beautiful day to just go outside tomorrow. not quite so tonight. it's a little on the nippy side tonight. but it's kould tonight and we're going to see the temperatures rising and that's the main story for this weekend is the rise of those temperatures for
a very superb saturday ahead. it's going to be nice in terms of those temperatures. the winds are going to start to pick up in the overnight hours and tomorrow. and they're going to be gusty. however, they're moving in from the southwest and that's what's going to help to boost our temperature up. so we're going to get that warmer air starting to warm in and our highs tomorrow are going to be into the low 60s. a little cooler on your sunday but overall still and we've got a fair amount of sunshine tomorrow for you and we're going to keep an eye on this system as it moves through. this will affect us on sunday. it looks like it's going to stall out a little bit s
looking at a chance of maybe a few showers on your sunday. but overall not too bad. but it's still going to be really mild as i said into the upper 50s and low 60s. so the weekend is shaping up quite nicely. your overnight lows tonight it's going to be chilly. only 37 at quantico, 36 at dc, 33 for gaithersburg, 35 for dulles and for hagerstown and 34 for martinsburg. so we've got this ridge of high pressure in place once we get into the tuesday-thursday period. this is an area that we're going to have to really watch. because we're going to have this cold air pretty much parked in here in place. two storm systems to watch. the first one on tuesday. and the thinking is that this one here may have a pretty good chance of running into this colder air. and if it does, we could see maybe a little bit of snow or even a wintry mix. it all depends on where this cold air is at that time. second low pressure system will kick through a
wednesday. and this one here is a little bit stronger than the first one. but there is a pretty good chance that the cold air might be out of the way by then. this could become primarily just a rain event. we'll watch those temperature wise where the cold air is and ms the track of those. so still a little complicated to pin down right now. in the meantime here's a look at the 7-day forecast for you. not complicated at all. for tomorrow we are talking those highs in the low 60s. very nice day for you. take a look. everywhere we're going to see a pretty pleasant day that we're going to get to enjoy. it starts to cool down as we get into the beginning of the week, however. watching it closely. back to you, tony, sarah? >> thank you very much. former president bill clinton is crediting his health to his all-vegan diet. while campaigning for hillary in las vegas. he popped into a cafe and was drooling over the men o.
he told the owner he would put on 50 pounds if he lived near the cafe because everything was looking so good. clinton cleaned up his diet after undergoing emergency heart bypass surgery in 2004. he -- we all remember way back in the day he was eating burgers. good for him. >> he looks good. here's one more reason to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. research says coffee may reduce the damage that alcohol does to your liver. the study from southamton yoint reduces the cirrhosis by 44%. it kills more than 1 million people worldwide. good to know right before our "cheers to the weekend" segment. >> an embarrassing mistake for an elementary school. they meant to e
about an upcoming school event. instead of attaching this document, they included this hurt feelings report. it's kind of a satirical thing. >> it's not the real deal but it includes categories like quote whiner's name, date feelings were hurt, name of man or woman who hurt your sensitive feelings and did you require a tissue for tears. >> can you imagine getting this in the mail from your school? the school later apologized for the mistake. they're just sad they got caught. >> national margarita day just around the corner we're getting an early start our celebration. >> john miller from vida taco bar in annapolis is here. we'll be right
