check this out. this is here. this is local. this hail storm in northern virginia. just one of the many severe weather videos that our viewers sent us. we received reports of damage throughout the region including structural damage to homes in charles county and elsewhere. for a closer look at this wild weather we were seeing today open our nbc washington app and click on the photo gallery. some rainbows even included in all of this. well, imagine you want to make a quick stop at the mall and then you run into this. it's unclear what caused this fire near the westfield annapolis mall this afternoon. we haven't gotten any reports of damage or injuries but that was quite the sight there for some shoppers. meanwhile, passengers knew something was wrong when splatters of mud started hitting
11:15 pm
stop. nbc's morena ann thistle has more on this morning's rough landing in toronto. >> reporter: flashing lights and emergency crews. it's not the welcome passengers on board this air canada flight were expecting when they arrived in toronto. >> i think we hit the grass before the runway and that's why -- because the wheels are bent. we saw the wheels are bent, mud's all over the windows. just terrible. >> reporter: air canada flight 623 from halifax was carrying 112 passengers on board. it made the tense landing at pierson airport early saturday morning as heavy rain pelted down. >> it was really foggy and pretty low to the ground. like when i come across the highway you could see the highway pretty close. it was kind of scary there. >> reporter: initial reports say part of the plane's landing gear left the runway for a short distance before the pilot steered it back onto the tarmac, causing debris to fly up and splatter the windows.
11:16 pm
brake really fast andv kind of shifted forward. it was pretty tense. you see the mud on the windows. it was very hard. >> reporter: unable to reach the terminal, passengers disembarked on the runway and were transported by bus an hour and a half after landing. air canada says passengers were provided with hotel accommodations and limousines and their luggage will be delivered once maintenance and the authorities finish reviewing what happened. but when the initial shock wore off, not everyone was happy with the airline's response. >> no one came to see if anyone was in need of medical care. very strange. >> it's a mess. we were really lucky. really lucky. >> reporter: and hours later, it's still fresh in passengers' minds. >> as we progressed down the runway to decelerate, the plane appeared to lurch a little bit to the left and then there was a heavy application of brakes that caused everyone to sort of i guess fly forward a little bit in their seats. >> reporter: a dramatic ending to the journey. thankfully with no reports
11:17 pm
thistle reporting. virginia state workers could soon see some big raises. the general assembly passed a budget plan that includes a 3% across-the-board raise for state employees. teachers also getting a pay hike and state troopers will get a nearly $6,800 raise to address high turnover and morale problems. the proposal now goes to governor terry mcauliffe. >> announcer: and now your storm team 4 forecast. well, the cold front moved through the area earlier today, and it did just that. brought much colder air into our area. and it continues to move in. so your first weather headline as you head out and about tomorrow, you definitely want to grab the warm jacket. especially during the morning hours. but take a look at your second weather headline. feeling like winter? it doesn't stick around for very long. we're going to warm back up. we're around 70 degrees for a high on wednesday. and there are rain chances in the forecast for the upcoming week. what we're looking, any chance
11:18 pm
warmest february on record, the third or fourth warmest winter on record, at least we're also looking at currently the driest february on record here in the district. but we did have some rain move through today. it didn't put down a lot of rain. but take a look at the storm reports here. especially south and east of washington. and there was that torpedo warning for parts of charles, prince george's, and calvert counties. i was on facebook live tracking out the warning for you. and if the national weather service does go out and investigate if there was a tornado, going to do so tomorrow morning. so we cannot confirm there was a tornado. i've not personally heard any viewer or anybody in the public say that they saw a tornado. it was a radar-indicated tornado warning. that means the radar picks up enough rotation, they issue that warning just to be safe. take a look at some of the damage reports. st. charles we got a lot of reports of trees down there. this one coming in of multiple trees down at st. charles
11:19 pm
so again, if the national weather service heads out, they're going to be doing that tomorrow morning and tom will have the latest on news 4 today. so before the front moved through we were in the 70s. 78 in culpepper, 75 here in washington. look at this. tomorrow morning 7:00 a.m. it's feeling like 30. now, the one good thing about tomorrow, beautiful sunshine in the forecast from start to finish. but it is going to be breezy. especially for the morning and midday hours. 4:00, it's chilly but it's normal to be chilly for late february, a high around 50 degrees, and then we'll be cold again tomorrow night heading into monday morning. 7:00 p.m. in the evening. we're looking at 45 degrees. because of this big temperature swing, weather having a low to moderate impact on your day. travel looking just fine. you'll need sunglasses. but outdoor exercises, we're back to the layers. and if you get chilly very easily and you're heading out in the morning you probably want at least the thin gloves. brunch today could have been outdoors. tomorrow definitely indoors. liberty will be closed
11:20 pm
white tail open. the ski season winding down across the area. as we look to monday, jacket weather for the kids. recess is outdoors but plenty of clouds in the forecast from start to finish. and by the time school's getting out not too bad to hit up the playground. 56 degrees at pickup. and then we continue to warm. tuesday we're in the mid 60s. maybe a few showers around. otherwise a mix of clouds and sun. on wednesday we warm to 70 and then another cold front moves through the area and this could set off some late-day rain, maybe even some thunderstorms. but the timing looks to be a little bit later so the chance for severe weather, erika, not as high certainly. something we're going to monitor. 60 thursday morning. 50s, though, throughout the day and windy. we're kind of up and down and all over the place for the upcoming work week. but i mean snow in march is not uncommon, right? >> it's hard to get snow in march. the chances really start to go down. and where we're at, the number one indicator for snow is cold
