join in the very least give them a fair warping where and when you will be setting them off. look, this does not mean that vets don't like fireworks. and we are not talking about the big shows at citythat cities and towns put on much the less the national fireworks down on the mall. vets can avoid those on their own. it is the personal fireworks in the neighborhoods that can be really, really hard for them to deal with. and we are looking forward to the fourth of july holiday weekend forecast. right now, i'm focusing in on a few showers moving through, areas of loudoun county and into montgomery county, tough look hard in on. zoom in. let's do that right now. these showers headed off to the east. you can see them here just west of sugarland run area, about ready to cross over 28 toward that area toward reston and another shower just about ready to head toward reston. so a little bit of wet weather out there a stray shower. 87 degrees temperature with the wind out of the southwest at 7

happy about this, because businesses here on the eastern shore say people might be willing to jump back and forth between the two sides a little bit more. coming up on news4 at 5:00, we are going to hear more about that. plus is this just a good first step and the tolls should come down some more? hear about that. check in now with storm team4 meteorologist, chuck bell. the skies are kind of turning dark outside our studios here in northwest. do we need to take cover? >> i don't know, take cover may be a little strong. may want to have the umbrella ready to go if you're going to go outside. a quick little shower chance the next little while. no severe weather no thunderstorms new york craziness out there. just a few little showers and literally, just one or two dots on the radar. one just north of us here we are in northwest washington, the tv station one little sprinkle here the northsides of bethesda, another one a little steadier shower now. there's the dulles international airport right there, so, moving just over downtown sterling, virginia, headed out into the northside, reston, here in the next little bit. that's the only game in town on
storm team4 radar. future weather carries as little chance of a shower here through about now to 10:00, i think really once this one little shower is done, that's about it rain chances move back into the area for tomorrow. could have a pretty showery stretch through at least the first half of your thursday. and then more rain chances into the weekend. more about that coming up in a few minutes. an historic black church in south carolina burned for the second time last night but the difference is the kkk set fire to mount zion ame 20 years ago. last night it looks like it was a lightning strike from as paing storm that destroyed the church. our talk around town today is on recent church fires down south and whur's troy johnson is here to put this into perspective. crimes against churches temples, mosques, police say they are down. >> the numbers are down but people really respect feeling good about this especially after the situation we had just weeks ago in charleston, nine inspect people who were simply at a bible study, now dead
because of something that we all know has been around in the south. we have had these situations with racism, where there have been attacks on churches. the church has been a frequent target of hate groups and folks are saying that, you know they know that, because churches are core institution in the community. so these fires -- the naacp also saying there's no coincidence here. so, people are definitely concerned about what this is really saying. is it really just a terrible situation of coincidence or is it really something else more sinister going on? >> we saw those statistics that show every year it dropping in both number and the percentage of those that are racially based. what are your listeners saying in terms of -- since the church shooting? do they feel this is a problem or are we taking this out of context? >> the naacp say it is in their official statement, take necessary precautions against the threat of attack. that sounds like military
directives. we talking about churches. that is kind of ringing true with the folks i talk to say there are security protocol in place at churches, especially people there for worships on sunday. now, churches may have to look at 24-hour security systems. and again we are talking about churches, not armories. >> right. >> so that's the thing that's resonating with folks. >> pete williams spoke to a senior federal law enforcement source, 20 years ago, these fires had nothing to do with race. they had other causes, but -- >> right. >> publicizing them and talking about them sort of introduced that idea and spurred more fires. could that happen today? >> it most certainly could happen today. i think people feel like they don't want to see a situation where there are copycats, people seeing an idea that -- that again may resonate with some, you know fringe parts of our citizenry. but people are taken back to those scenes from the '60s, people telling me it feels like
1963 when i see a church burning but it's really 2015. obviously, there are some issues certainly is some terrible coincidence here, but they are hoping that it's not much more than that. arsons are being investigated though. and people are certainly concerned. >> all right. thank you very much. >> absolutely. >> pat? >> all righty. now to a warning about some creative thieves get nothing homes by first breaking into cars. the thieves are hitting homes in the ashburn area. the latest case happened this past weekend on auction barn drive. there were three others last month not far away. in some cases thieves found garage remotes in unlocked cars and then used those remotes to open the garages and get into the homes. the sheriff is reminding you to keep your garage doors closed, lock your cars or park it inside the garage and secure all of your windows and doors. today friends and family members are honoring a teenager who was killed in a car crash in north potomac. he died four weeks after graduating from woolt.high

a businesscy night and the wind is picking up, getting busy tracking a stray shower here, it comes into areas of northern fairfax county now around -- crossing just over sugarland run and eastbound right now, but it is starting to weaken. so, we're not going to see much in the way of those showers out there. a stray shower for about the next hour or two. then we have got more clouds coming in by 9:00. 11 p.m. mostly cloudy. we will drop more than 10 degrees by the time we get to 10 and 11 p.m. tomorrow morning occasional shower possible. so going to need the umbrella for tomorrow.

enacted one of the toughest vaccination laws in the country and it's not going over well some. starting next year nearly all public and private school children will have to be vaccinated and there will be no exceptions for religious or personal beliefs. now, the change was prompted by last year's measles outbreak at disney land. but actor jim carrey is already railing against the law, tweeting -- california governor says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in mandatory vaccines. this corporate fascist must be stopped. supporters say opting out taxes the health care system and vaccinations do protect the majority of kids from infectious diseases. they may be controversial, but they are still the law. in news for your health, what's difference between vaccines required by public schools in d.c., maryland and virginia? which vaccines do you still need as an adult and who should really never get vaccines the

if you were to ever sit by the bedside in d.c. you are going to need it for college, those this in virginia you are going to need it before you go to school. and hpv, mandatory in virginia and d.c. for girls to prevent against upcoming cervical cancer. >> most of us got shots when we were kids and many people, you know, the shots we got then will be good for the rest of our lives. but we as adults need shots and need the boosters. >> right. a list of those. the first one starts with flu. your flu vaccine, you should get every single year and then tdap has tetanus in it. everybody knows they get a booster every ten years but this includes pertussis, so important for pregnant women, have to get it in pregnancy. shingles for the chicken pox vaccine that's been reactivated in you the chicken pox virus for people over the knew mow coccal, over 65 and didn't have the mmr or the
