live view from our tower camera here from upper northwest washington. we had a few sprinkles this morning, but now they're pretty much dissipating. going forward in time, the cloud cover breaking up here. as we get into the afternoon, it's going to be all sunny all around most of maryland and virginia. there may still be a few lingering low clouds out in the mountains. elsewhere, we'll have lots of sunshine through the afternoon as temperatures that are right now hovering near 60 degrees will quickly jump. culpepper up to 64lready as well as in fredericksburg. reagan national at 61 degrees. hour by hour temperatures, noontime just about everywhere in the mid-60s. near 70 by midafternoon. clear and mild through the evening hours. getting cool by late evening. by 9:00, 10:00, back down into the 50s. by dawn on monday, for your day off tomorrow, 40s in the morning, sunshine through the day. a little cooler but still terrific day to get out maybe on a bike ride, a hike, or a run,
low 60s. then clouds close in monday night. cooler day during the day tuesday. highs mid-50s. then a warm front may trigger a light rain shower on wednesday morning. a little sunshine back on wednesday afternoon. here comes another warm wave. up near 70 wednesday afternoon. mid-70s on thursday and partly sunny. might get some morning sprinkles both next friday and next saturday mornings. sun back both of those afternoons but still way above average temperatures. we'll stay that way but cooler as we get into sunday, first part of next week. >> wow. 70s. feeling like a florida winter. that's where we're going to take you next after the break. the full squad down there is back. the nats getting to work. the surprising comforts of home the team is finding in the sunshine state.

what he didn't wasn't illegal, like many other people have said, but it's the fact he wasn't straight or honest. i found it hard to believe you would have a conversation with a russian ambassador and not remember it. so either way, either you don't remember or you weren't honest. either way, it was an unsustainable place to be, and the president made a decisive decision to ask for his resignation resignation and he got it. >> that there was white house chief of staff reince priebus. that was just moments ago on "meet the press." >> he was talking about michael flynn's resignation as national security adviser and what he told the
ambassador. let's bring in moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. thanks for joining us. what stuck out most to you? >> i think there were two things. one, just the definitive comfort that the chief of staff had in basically denying any truth or any idea that anybody associated with the president's campaign or associated with the president spoke with the russians. he said he's been assured by the highest levels of the intelligence community that this report, that there were consistent ties between some members of trump's team and some russian agents is just categorically not true. so they put themselves on the record on a number of things that are contradicted by a lot of different media reports. we'll see. there is the senate intelligence investigation. he did confirm they're starting to preserve documents and any communications that have anything to do with russia as instructed by the senate intelligence comme,
starting this investigation. >> we're seeing images there of mike flynn. now that he's out of that position for national security adviser, there are four contenders. who's rising to the top? >> i would keep track of both the two military veterans there that are not general kellogg, who is the acting nsa. both have some ties to jim mattis, the defense secretary. i would be surprised if john bolton got it, who's more of a politician, the one politician in that group, only because his foreign policy world view and the president's foreign policy world view couldn't be farther apart. that would surprise me more than anything. he's popular in some conservative hawkish circles, but it would run counter to the president's own foreign policy beliefs. that's the one that would stick out to me. >> all right, chuck todd. thanks for joining us. >> six minutes and 13 seconds to get to studio
chuck todd this morning at 10:30 here on nbc 4. and today, full squad workouts for the nats begin at spring training. >> news 4's carol maloney gives us a preview of their new florida home. you'll know why guys like bryce harper will have to bring their swim trunks, maybe floaties, to work. >> reporter: amid the construction, a team gets back to work. ballpark of the palm beaches, a cool name for the nats' new massive spring training complex. >> it makes you feel good. guys are excited to come. guys are not in a hurry to leave. all this equates to, you know, being happy. >> reporter: six practice fields, an agility field, spots for 20 pitchers in the bull pen, and a pool, guys ready to jump in. >> excited to be down here, excited to get going in a new place with some greie
