well, it's aeautiful start out there on this sund morning. plenty of sunshine out there, and very similar conditions to away we experienced yesterday. so as far as your weather headlines go, now, again conditions similar to saturday. once again a chance for isolated showers and storms. we saw thesterday mainly to the west as advertised along the i-81co idor. a few snuck in upper montgomery county. more humidity heading into your nday and then it really starts
on tuesday. temperatures right now, it's so comfortable, 60s and 70s and the humidity is not that bad. we have a little bit of fog. temperatures top out in the low 90sr daytime highs today. again maybe another isolated chance of a shower later on this afternoon. 92 wiim be our dayt high. yesterday we were about 89. so again we will take it up jusw a fegrees warmer than today, and again another isolated chance of a shower or thunderstorm. nothing out there right now. travel looking a-okay. now, for tomorrow those temperatures are going to be in the low-to-mid 90s. a little bit more humidity tomorrow. another isolatechance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. you can see again i think yesterday we had a slightly betterhhance of seeing t. that was still under 20%. so today maybe 10%, 15% chance of a shower and thunderstorm popping up. a lot of us will be staying on the dry side. an o it again tomorrow, uptick in the humidity for
monday. a little bit of fog for anybody that gets rain heading into monday. then byon my afternoon another isolated chance of showers and thunderstorms popping up. i think tuesda we willave a slightly better chance, about a 30% chance of some showers and thunderstorms and then wednesday looks to be the ransition day here we are going to have a frontal system move in the area. 80s intor y wednesday. 80s for your thursday and friday. we will have some chances of rain thursday, and it looks like some rain could len into next weekend. guys. >> all right. lauryn ricketts, thank you very much. "reporter's notebook" is coming up next with the adam tuss. >> yeah, it comes with a trick as well. watch how quickly i can change ties. weill be back in 15 minutes. thanks for joining us for this week'sr' "repor notebook." clearly, this is a vacationan week, the wheels have come off the train because i have gone from panelist to host of this program. but fear not. we have a great panel on tap.
storm team4 meteorologist amelia draper and i-team's scott macfarlane. we have a lot to unpack from the last week we just wenta through. looking forward, amelia, the heat wave that we just went through. first of all, i describe that as gross. >> yes. >> that was absolutely brutal. but there are larger impacts here. how are we stacking up? wele series of reports on climate change. where are we stacking up when we talk aboutum the nr of heat waves that we are going through now? >> what we ar seeing with heat waves is they are becoming more frequent and lastingr. longe this heat wave was 12 days, which is three days longer than your average heat wave. heat wave means we are hitting gher three or h consecutive days in a row at least. somepeople argue that the temperatures kt at reagan national is on the tarmac there. so it's not necessarily an accurate capturing of the at tempere, but it's the metric that we'veused going back in record-keeping history. as far as 90 degree days this year, we have hit 31 days at 90 or higher. so we only need six more to hit
our average for the yeof, and course we are not even into august yet. so it's looking like a h mmer. think we've e are talking about all tried to become a lot more schooled on what that actually means, what the defing terms are. it's not just necessarily about the heat. there are other impacts, right? we are seeing stronger storms adevelop. rain.ing a lot of certainly, we have been dealing with flooding as well. >> the ex streams atremes are ge extreme. talking about the country is overperforming in rainfall. heat waves, not just nationally, glly. ina has-impressive heat wave, all-time record temperatuiss. europe in the second heat wave. out west, san francisco had an impressive heat wave earlier in the year. we had our own heat wave. this past heat wave,e didn't set a record high temperature, but when you talk abou the extremes more extreme, the amount of moisture that was in t w air crazy. that's what made this heat wave
so impressive. >> we are seeing a direct tie between what's happening there and our own personal weather here and around the world. you are talking about europe, like 107 in paris. >> right. > incredible temperatures and people are just breaking reords, including alaska. alaska had a hot temperature.a nd then we were also seeing all those awesome videos that come along with that. like the moose in the water sprinkler and all the other things that are going on. legitimately, while that's funny shall the animals and nature itself is starting to feel a of this? >> absolutely. and when we the heat wave, the potomac river hit the warmest temperature ever at 9 degrees at little falls. so this s a big impact on theem ecos there because fish can't terate certain mperatures. they had a temperature thresholt that hey like to experience. when the temperatureswarm up they either have to may grate north if they can or if they can't they might die. so it really stresses the ecosystems. also isn't to point out
the recreational fishing industry is $46 billion industry. you are talking about a lot of money here. i think kind of the double-edged sword is when you get ito a lot of money with certain things, and that's when people start to listen and maybe try to change what we're seeing. >> 94 degrees doesn't seem -- >> it's not comfortable. >> it doesn't seem possible. how does that even happen? >> it's a hot bath. >> scott, you guys have had the, the i-team has had a really good series called flyer beware this week. one thing that, covering transportation, i'm certainly aware of the guns that are showing up at airports because the theasa has gotten good specifically locally about ny saying how m loaded guns are showing up at airports and how many guns aren't being checked in the baggage. >> an incredible number. we wanted to quantite how ofn enis is happening. it's two times each year at each of our local airports, somebody brings a firearms, nearly all loaded, sometimes with a bullet in the chamber. this is clearly against the law.
it's been against oe law fa long time, long before 9/11. the frequency that it happens is alarming to the tsa, but also inconvenience to the passengers. shut hat happens, they down the whole checkpoint. they freeze the tsa security lines so they can investigate the firearm, the m de of the through o has it, look the bags, and that freezes security. it's never a pitular thing wh flyers when they are trying to get out and everything is halted. >> yeah, of course. you look at the impact locally, one of the things that you guys the laws out is that here are different than the laws at some other places. actually, they are not as strict here, right? it seems like this almost happens, you get a fine, maybe you don't? >> maybe you get a fine. >> right. >> and that would be the most stringent penalty you face locally. es went through 160 cases through court ffor the people caught locally at dca and dulles since january 2016. none of those 160 people spent a day inail. none faced a fine that was four
digits in quantity. most are sll fines. nearly all had the cases wiped from their rec ds or cases dismissed or the prosecution deferred. >> and you were taking a look at the allergy issue that goes on in some flyers. this was aat whole series th you did this week. you highlighted one woman who had a peanut allergy and she plenty of sunshine out there right n. sun coming up at 6:06 this morning, and just about 25 minutes ago. it's beautiful out there. and temperatures out there right now not too bad. we are at 73 degrees. once again, youut walkde, it's a little on the comfortable side. s have that southerly wind at about five mile hour. so again it is a very nice morning to star your sunday. it's going to be hot continuinge into the afoon. with ups again those temperatures are going to be around 90 degrees. so again it will be hot, but oybe you are headed to to wash the car. do it today. only those stray chances of isolated showers we head into this afternoon and throughout this evening very similar to yesterday. we will talk about that, wh is
going to see those, and talk about when we have the big changes next. it's coming. specificallydn on day. we will show you that on that ten-day forecast coming up in a little bit. >> thank you. president trump continues attacking maryland congressman elijah cummings and the city of baltimore on twitter. overnight president trump tweeted, quote, so sad that ble to cummings has been do so little for the people of baltimore. statistically, baltimore ranks last in almost every major category. cummings has done nothing but the baltimore dry, but public is getting wise to the bad job that he is doing. this comes after he described cummings' west baltimore district as, quote, agu dising rat and rodent infested mess the president was reacting to the grilgs cummings gave last week to acting homeland security cretary over conditions at detention facilities on the border. cummings responded by saying it is his constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the

welcome back. 6:sp. ecial counsel robert mueller finally delivered testimony on tr russia pobe. saying tical expert democrats got what they wanted on substance, but optics, the say the hearing was a disaster. >> actually, the guy who said that is moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd, who is joining us. >> the o word, everybody is going go crazy. >> optics. break it down for us. what do you think comes out of this and what are the next step?
from her i asked new on friday. you said you thought there might be a period at the end here, but democrats look like they are pushingforward? >> i think that democrats were hoping that mueller would give them a moment that wouldlv gaanize the country a little bit better, a he, you know, look, he gave us nothing from the report, right? he gave us nothing that we already couldn't have read in the report. he didn't provide any extra explanation as to why he didn't make charges. he refused toge. in some ways the hearing didn't serve a gater purpose beyond epst sort of trying to present the mueller rort orally, which had already, you know, three months later. i do think democrats are -- have this dimma. they are split on this where you have half the caucus eysentially sag what will this look like? you know, how can we not start imp echment, look aterything? the other half is going, yes, but you are never going to get him out of office.
and if the number one goal is to get him out of office, then focus on 2020. they are very rational places to be. i think the hardest thing to predict is the long-term political consequences. i have said this a bunch of times on here. ts should at democ remember the iraq wars and you've just got to remember what seemsight in the moment can flip on i head a few years later. you don't know that. this feels like one of those votes. i don't know which one is goin to be theht call. none of us can. but it is one of those things that the moreou are worrying about the politics of something, the more that's likely to backfire in the long run talked before, that the numbers don't suggest that the majority o people want trump to be impeached. >> here is a question that i t rhetorically ask this morning. it's mply this. is there a voterout there going i don't know if i can vote for president trump again unless the democrats start impeachment hearings? younow what i mean? this is the logic that some are
saying. i thn't know if that -- ere is an argument to be made tat that now, are there voters who cld be disappointed that they thought, hey, i voted democratic in 2018 to hold this president ayocountable. u didn't do anything. what's the point? is that something that the party ought to fear, too? this is base versus the middle. there is no doubt. but i sometimes wonder if they are overthinking this a little bit. >> exactly. let's touch on this tweet storm that's going on here and this firestorm that just kind of started yesterday about the city of baltimore and the president clearly he doesn't like the way that the congressional hearing went h with theeland security secretary and was firing back. >> it's always about sething else. it's never about what he tweeted. >> do you think he is going to garnish theaf can-american vote? elijah cummings doesn't care about you, he is not doing anything for your community, you know, i am ago going to - look me essentially? >> i guess i look what he has
done with the peralonally racily-charged attacks on the noote-unquote squad and with elijah cummin,s. i mea this is h is just doing the racial thing. trying to racially divide the country because thinks -- sean, that's the thing. he thinks that' good politics. >> right. >> hashtag blacks for trump. >> that's theuestion for sheer. he is not trying to woo african-amerhean voters. is trying to gaslight and saying i'm not making this abou race, te making about race. i mean, this is just sort of -- it's not even subtle. >> no. anve we ha never seen it before. >> we have seen it before. just not from -- not through a president. >> that's what i mean. legitimately calling out a city. >> what's amazing is the silence, and we said this before, the republican silence an the ter on this one t last one, which was greater on that one than the one before that.
look, i think larry hogan's spokesperson said somethin the governor, for instance, on this. i say this, governor hogan has been critical of the president on very many things wi charlottesville. it is interesting how republicans have justcided maybe it's -- whatever it is, either they look like they are comfortable with the president doing it. that's the thing they have to be careful about. they don't want people to think that their silence means they are their acquiesceens. >> a shame you don't haveng anythi to talk about. >> this is a show i feel all of a sudden everything got boxed in here. i stil only have an hour. >> that's all right. you can see "meet the press," it comes up every sunday right here on 10:30 right after news4 today. chuck, thanks so much. seeyou in a little bit. ll a right. with gun violence on the rise across the district, d.c.'s mayor is taking steps to get illegal guns off the street. >> here is a look at several gs shootin that happened in over
a three-hour period in the district overnight. none of the victims were killed, but so far police have not made any arrests. this week the mayor met with prosecutors promise to go go after people caught with weapons. >> news4's mark segraves reports there weren't a lot ofifics about how to make that happen. >> it seems like these that law enforcement officials want to put an end to. the growing number of shootings in the district, and the growing number of murders. mayor muriel bowser and chief ow police nsom stood with the bur , tobacco and firearms to warn people against buying and selling illegal guns. >> far too many guns are being recovered today in washington, d.c. >> reporter: they have been steadfast that the best way to stop the growing murder rate is to stop theuns from coming into the majority of those illegal guns come from one state. >> we think intense focus on
virginia. r: the top prosecutor in virginia says his office will whhelp track known those buy guns legally in virginia but sell them illegal p toeople in d.c. >> make it f extremely ha individuals to get guns, and that's our commitment. >> reporter: five months ago, bowser and newsom stood with the u.s. attorney for tto district announce a plan to prosecute felon in possession cases in federal court. so far this year there have been nearly 200 arrests for felon in possession of a gun. he said only 65 of those have actually been prosecu in federal court. last week the chief complained publicly that the consequences for being arrested with a gun weren't enough to stop the violence. we asked lou of the more than 6 toal 0 tot gun arrests this year how many have been prosecuted. >> i don't have those numbers for you. >> reorter: in 2016, then-police chief cathy lanier blasted the district's criminal justice system calling to beyona broken, the mayor agreed
complaining that federal prosecutors were naccountable. >> prosecutors don't report to the people. they don't report to me either. judges and others don't. >> reporter: while gun violenced has increas this year, overall violent crime is down in thest dict. mark segraves, news4. well, d.c. police are offering rewards of up to $2,50a for tipslead to arrests on illegal guns. let's g switchrs, turn to the weather. another heat wave? >> not like last week? >> no, not like last week. and the thing about it, we made it to 89 degrees yesterday. >> yesterday was nice. >> it was nice. >> it was a niceday, if you weren't sitting in the sun at nats park. >> oh, my gosh, i wa> melting. > know. i can't believe you guys went to the game and sat in the sun. >> yeah. i mean, kelly is like this wks n my tan. i am like i'm dying. >> never sit in the sun at a baseball game. >> we had a good time.
