It would be a new tax of ten cents per $100 of assessed value for commercial properties in old town Alexandria along king street and the waterfront. The idea would be to use that money to host events and promote the businesses affected by the tax, Amy Rutherford owns two businesses that would fall within the boundaries, she supports the idea. A lot of people know about old town, but they don't know the details of old town. What types of businesses are there? Those are the things that we want people to learn.

Please sure are at this point now we're trying to figure out what's happening toward Alexandria on the outer loop of the beltway in the local lanes leave in telegraph road headed over toward route one, not sure if we've got maybe a drain cleaning operation. Can't see anything in the cameras to accept maybe the little bit of the slowing, but no reason as of yet. Inner loop, we've been heavy around Braddock riddle toward two 36, 95 headed in the northbound direction, leaving a quiet toward triangle. There had been a mobile crew working along the left side. The work zone at a Stafford 95 southbound beyond exit one 40 had been blocking the far right lane. Still a little heavy, 66 east heading through manassas, then again, passing fairfax, the work scheduled north on the George Washington Parkway, headed from spout run toward the overlooks, and the long-term work that's always in place, both ways between one 23 and the beltway. Got the right lane there getting by. Reported in rest and on the rest in Parkway near glade drive, also the Prince William park when you're Lake Jackson drive in manassas.

Late delay Baltimore, Washington Parkway, going south from one 98 toward one 97, then through the bellway interchange as you ride out of greenbelt, 7 O four west near Columbia park road, earlier had a box truck broken down there last scene, had been blocking the far left lane.

Locally, our rain ends, noon 1 o'clock, that means the afternoon commute will be dry, which is good news. Our temperatures in the low 50s today we warm it up overnight into the middle 50s, so to be warmer when you wake up, then it will be when you go to bed and the high temperature on Thursday will be 80° with lower 80s to the south and we'll have a breezy wind as well. So it's going to feel very warm on Thursday, and then a cold front comes through with just a wind shift on Friday and temperatures dropping through the 50s, the weekend will be 98% dry just a couple of flurries possible on Saturday.
