WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Here are five things you need to know on Thursday, April 17:

5. A Freeze Warning is in effect for the entire Metro area until 9 AM, as morning temperatures dip down below freezing for most of us under a clear sky. You'll need a heavy coat again for the morning commute. Today we have an east wind, keeping more clouds around in the afternoon and holding cooler temperatures in place. Friday looks better, with partly cloudy skies and a milder afternoon.

4. On May 1st, the DC Department of Motor Vehicles will be issuing new driver licenses called REAL ID, to comply with federal standards. The people who will need these new IDs are those who need to get into federal buildings and those who fly. The current drivers licenses still work to be identified locally, but that's about it.
