WASHINGTON (AP) — With only hours to spare, Congress passed legislation that would avoid a partial federal shutdown and keep the government funded through Dec. 3. The bill now goes to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.

The votes will help avert one crisis, but efforts to stave off a second crisis that seems likely to continue for the next couple of weeks as the two parties dig in on a dispute over how to raise the government's borrowing cap.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that failure to raise the debt limit will lead to a financial crisis and economic recession.

The fog tucked us in last night, leaving for some surreal driving conditions on the roads. We see the potential for a repeat situation this evening for the valley.
