we really do. >> we want to hang. we also want to tell you about the weather. you notice outside in that live shot we saw some clouds. it sounds like we're going to see a lot of sunshine later. >> eventually. just have to have a little bit of patience. a mostly cloudy start this morning will turn into a fair amount of sunshine by later on in the day. it'll stay a little bit on the chilly side here for the next couple hours. the return of sunshine will turn it into a very nice day. four things to know about the forecast. the cold air that was with us yesterday and overnight, that is now in full retreat. southerly winds will bring milder temperatures back into the region for the next couple days. dry weather for today and through tomorrow as well. then a taste of rain drops. temperatures near 60 degrees with some rain chances around. that warm air gets shoved out later in the week. that may lead to a little rain/snow combo coming up on your thursday. as far as today, a little chance for light snow well to our south and east. that's moving a i whway from us. highs today around 52 degrees. got to love that. >> all right, chuck. thank you very muc

news this morning. police trying to figure out if these two scenes are connected to a late-night officer-involved shooting. one of the scenes is in northeast d.c. the other is in the area of taylor street and 51st street in bladensburg, maryland. >> that is where we find our news 4's derrick ward. he's live with us this morning, joining us from the scene. derrick, run us through what happened. this is pretty complicated. >> reporter: indeed, it is. it's a lot calmer out here than it was last night. we're here in the 4100 block of 51st street just off 202. take a look. it was about 11:30 last night when police were called to this scene. there was a report of someone breaking into cars. now, police say when they got here, they saw a suspect vehicle leaving the scene. they say that car hit a police cruiser and tried to run down an officer who was on foot. now, police officers fired at the car. we're told people heard as many as five gunshots. there was a chase. they don't know if they hit

9:03 am
to get on flights and enter the united states. it's as though the executive order was never actually issued. as for visas issued before the executive order and those that were revoked, those are once again considered valid. president donald trump is defending his claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election. he talked about it with fox news' bill o'reilly for a super bowl interview. >> many people have come out and said i'm right. you know that. >> but you have to have data to back that up. >> when you see illegal, people that are not citizens and they're on the registration rolls -- look, bill, we can be babies, but you take a look at the registration. you have illegals, dead people. it's really a bad situation. >> well, last month the president threatened to launch an investigation into voter fraud, but the white house has not provided details on that effort. well, the countdown to kickoff is on. the atlanta falcons are going to take on the new england patriots in super bowl li tonight in houston. >> now, if theco

9:06 am
we have to let that warm up, then we're putting the burgers on. how do you like yours? >> medium-well, a little guacamole. how many have you eaten so far? >> reporter: i have no comment on that. there are some rumors that i've had a few brats and perhaps some bacon that we cooked earlier. in fact, yeah, there's still some bacon. >> i'm not even going to ask you how many drinks you've will already. you've been sipping that bad boy. >> who keeps track of that, really? come on. if anybody knows how to party, it's jay. >> reporter: just one, but it's a big one. >> thanks, jay. have a great time down there. we'll check back in, in a little bit. a busy super bowl sunday and limited travel options. how you can get around six metro station closures and when the work is expected to wrap up. and the weather will not mess with your super bowl sunday plans today. we have a big change we're tracking. chuck is tracking it all. what you can expect for the start of the wor kw

9:18 am
you're getting ready to go home, temperatures will have fallen back into the upper 30s and low 40s. so it will be mild enough for today. even milder tomorrow with temperatures back into the low and mid-50s. however, this area of rain across texas and louisiana, there's houston. it will be raining down there for the super bowl. that means the roof will be closed today. that surge of warm air and moisture, that's got eyes on us. as a result, we have a really warm stretch of weather coming our way towards the middle of the week. so low 50s today and tomorrow with sunshine coming back today and then clouds coming back tomorrow. pretty solid chance for rain much of the day on tuesday and wednesday. then as the colder air filters back in, we may end with a little rain/snow combination wednesday night into early thursday morning. then slushy know possible during the day on thursday but temperatures above freezing. we're not looking for a lot of accumulation. this temperature here tuesday, 63, the record high on tuesday is only
9:19 am
unusually mild for some february rain drops. the whole ten-day forecast in the next half hour. we're just over two weeks into the trump presidency, and we're certainly getting a sense of how he plans to govern, but there remain a lot of big questions about the policies he'll pursue and how he'll get them done. >> item one on that list is health care. trump animated a lot of voters in the election by promising to repeal obamacare, but we don't have a lot of answers about what that looks like. >> then there's the border wall. trump signed an executive order to start the process of building it, but it remains unclear how it will be paid for. >> and then there's possible action to reverse barack obama's deferred action on deportations for undocumented immigrants who are bought brought to this country as children. >> those are just a few of the questions we've still got with plenty more sh

9:26 am
on the walls here. >> i would say it's more modern african culture. >> reporter: this wood sculptor moved to america with his american wife several years ago. to make his extraordinary sculptures, he brought the tools of his trade from africa. he teaches others the age-old craft of carving. >> the students were absolutely wonderful. >> reporter: a former art teacher, francesca britton, has become a prolific artist with jewelry and abstract paintings. this is her new series. >> this one is fighting my demons. this one is, of course i will survive. >> reporter: art can tell many stories in many forms. in this gallery, there are thousands of stories being told. >> and that was barbara harrison reporting. the black history month exhibition at the xenith gallery runs throuma

9:36 am
mystery. it's very vague. >> reporter: the creators behind the commercial is pennsylvania company 84 lumber. the idea was to make a big statement, and the message is about job recruiting for hundreds of positions. >> 84 lumber is looking for people who embody the characteristics of the mom and daughter. >> reporter: within the cinematic story, a scene at the international border, including a wall, was removed. z >> the original spot was not allowed to air. it allowed us to tell a deeper story. >> reporter: the edited story now ends halfway and then drives the viewer to the company website. >> given the controversy around it, you know, they say there's no such thing as bad press, right. so this is -- certainly there are people who are going to say, oh, i didn't know about 84 lumber, and now i'm going to go make an effort to support them. >> reporter: a simple but powerful piece that this group describes will hopefully be one of many controver

9:45 am
good morning, everybody. i'm storm team 4 meteorologist chuck bell. cloudy skies out there for now, but there will be more and more in the way of sunshine coming your way for your super bowl afternoon and early evening plans. sun is down just after 5:30 today. kickoff is at 6:30. just shared my hot sausage sandwich recipe on twitter. ten-day forecast coming up when i see you next. >> whatever you're serving, i'm eating. a federal appeals court has denied the trump administration's request to immediately reinstate its travel ban. >> it is the latest in the legal drama surrounding the president's controversial executive order. joining us now to break it all down, thank goodness, nbc news justice correspondent pete williams. pete, great to have you here on the show this sunday morning. i know you stopped by yesterday. you predicted there was going to be a lot more confusion in the days ahea
9:46 am
what does this latest move in this latest ruling mean, and have we heard yet from the government itself? >> what we have really right now is the absence of ruling. the government went to the ninth circuit court of appeals on the west coast just after midnight eastern time and said, please, put a hold on the judge's order. it was the judge's order in seattle that basically stopped enforcement of the trump travel restrictions. now the government is treating people from those seven countries affected by the restrictions as though the restrictions were never in place. so the government went to the court last night and said, you've got to stop enforcement of this judge's order. let us continue. this is the j uj thudge that hat down, james robart. the attorney general of washington is the one who brought the lawsuit. the government said to the appeals court, put this on hold. the president has absolute
9:47 am
national interest. he controls immigration, not the courts. and there's no constitutional right held by people who are immigrants who come here. they don't have constitutional rights to come to the u.s. but what the appeals court did and said, we're not going to act on this immediately. we're going to order the states to file a response. their response is due this afternoon at about midnight eastern time. then tomorrow the government has to respond to that by about 6:00 p.m. eastern time. so we're not going to get any further court action until at the very earliest tomorrow evening. >> this is the way it's supposed to work. checks and balances. not one part of power. this is really confusing for people, and people whose lives are at stake right now. >> the president says it's not supposed to work this way. the president says he has the sole authority to act here. but that's the way it normally proceeds. this court has issued what's called a temporary restraining order. it's not a decision on the merit. it's not
9:48 am
whether the trump executive order is illegal or unconstitutional. it simply says the states have a good point that this is causing them harm. let's freeze everything, preserve the status quo, until the judge can make a decision about whether it's unconstitutional or illegal. one thing to notice though, there are nine other lawsuits. there are going to be more filed next week. all this court action has a ways to go. >> and chuck todd mentioned he thinks it's going to go to the supreme court. your thoughts? >> here's the deal. whoever doesn't prevail in the court of appeals by monday night can go to the supreme court and ask the supreme court to issue the same kind of emergency hold on the judge's order that they asked the appeals court to order. again, it's unlikely the appeals court will do this. it's unlikely the supreme court will do this. appeals courts generally don't impose these stays on temporary restraining orders. what the government is asking for is a long shot. >> got you. a lot to keep track of. pete williams stopping by
