6:03 pm
because he was black. the evidence in this case again was of a digital nature. there was lots and lots of digital evidence, including a phone in this case, and other evidence. after analyzing all of that evidence we are comfortable now that we have enough evidence to file a hate crime charge. the murder of lieutenant collins set off a fire storm of anger after the campus police chief revealed sean your ban ski was l involved in a facebook group that posted racist and other inflammatory templet but it took months of examining the rm toker university of maryland's student 's comments by the fbi and other law enforcement before prosecutors were comfortable in calling the murder a hate crime your ban ski is white and collins is african-american. collins who was about to graduate from bowie state was on campus visiting friends and waiting for an uber driver beer when police say your ban ski approached along

many zc city is a city filled with loud noises. but one particular noise has some residents complaining during the fall season. the now noise from gas powered leaf blowers and council member mary cheh knows the complaints are coming. it's been kind of light. we're only at the beginning. once it gets started and the leaf blowers are out there in force i will be getting e-mails. several years ago council member cheh proposed a bill that would phase out gas powered leaf blowers by 2022 which she says. it's gone nowhere. it's not moving in the council because it's not in my committee and committee chairs they decide what moves and it hasn't been moving. just to give you an idea of how loud a gas blower is, one right here, take a look at the decibels, peaking out right about 111. there is even a group called quiet clean d.c. on its website it says just say no to gas blowers, but

6:14 pm
really pushing for this at this point. at this point it's just a proposal but she'd like to see it go through and remember that if this law was passed it really wouldn't face out these gas leaf blowers until 2022ment live in northeast, matt ackland, fox5 local news. >> maryland governor larry hogan may have spilled the beans about his plans to run for reelection this is one of the videos hogan posted to his social media account highlighting his achievements over the last 1,000 gays. each videoened with the phrase to be continued. as you you can imagine it has raised all kinds of questions about if he will run or if he won't be running for reelection. we caught up with the governor today to find out. well, it's to be continued because i high we still have 380 days left in the firm term. we're not ready to make any kind of announcement , but it seems like a majority of the people in the state are happy with the direction we're
6:15 pm

6:18 pm
trying to hold off until november. of i may have run it one time so far this year. we did not have d.c. in in the frost advisory last night. they're in it tonight. i still think that many spots in the sit t i will stay in the 40s, but everybody else getting quoald tonight. the light is gorgeous, love that live shot love the live shot. and. this is a p more widespread frost advisory than we had yesterday. the only counties really not in it now are those that border the bay. if you're close to water or if you're in a city center maybe you don't have frost but everybody else you'll have to watch for temperatures to head forth mid 30s. there's nothing in effect out here as you get into the highlands, that's because they've already had a freeze and the growing season is considered to be over so they don't consider to issue freeze warnings. it it will be cold out there as wl.
6:19 pm
season may end tonight. already at 6:00 we see gaithersburg down to 57. martinsburg down to 59. winchester you're down to 357. fredericksburg to 59. on our way to a pretty cold evening, that is for sure. and we'll see the temperatures continuing to drop through the 50s by 11:00 and well down into the 30 #-s and 40s tonight with d.c. about 45-degrees, but you could be 10- degrees keerl than that. we dropped to 36 last night at dulles. a cold night means a chilly start at the bus stop. notice the recovery tomorrow afternoon, our high treatment today 64. tomorrow we should stop out closer to 70-degrees and after a school at the bus stop a range of 61 to 68-degrees . our chilly fall nights continue, but each night they get a little warmer. tonight is a cold one at 45. tomorrow night in the district about 50 and by thursday night about 51-degrees. so a gradual and slow warming trend is going to continue as we
6:20 pm
week. these are the high temperatures today and as you know tomorrow we'll start to see the temperatures coming up a little bit in the afternoon, forecasting 70 in the district. i think a lot of places will be close to that and then we take it up a degree each day. thursday, 73, friday, 74 and saturday 75-degrees, a beautiful week many the it is also a very dry week and high pressure is blocking owlt all the \rain\reign\ment so we start with these chilly mornings. then we are milder in the afternoon as we head into the 630s and 730s. tomorrow a perfect example of that. but as we look at our planner tomorrow you want to get ready with the layers tomorrow morning. again, no breeze, but 47-degrees here in the city at eight in the morning, very chilly. by noon we're about 63-degrees and by 5:00, 68-degrees, hopefully coming down from a high of 70 and you can see that we'll have plenty of company with that number. that is actually just a couple of degrees above average for this time of year, the average is 68-degrees. i wanted to show you this, too.
6:21 pm
you this last night at 11:00. you don't see this very often as we take our futurecast forward forth next two days. almost the entire lower 48 getting any rain with the exception of florida getting a little bit of shower activity from a stalled boundary there. this one of the best signs we've seen in a long time some badly needed rain coming into the west coast. it is going to be a big help we think for the wild fire battles that are ongoing across california tonight. we'd also been keeping an eye on a little bit of a system out here that looked like it my try to develop, but as of today this system has gotten really elongated a frontal boundary that is down here toward florida i think is going to keep it from getting much development going. so we're encouraged that we're not going to see another system developing
6:22 pm
out here. yesterday there had been a 30 percent chance that that thing might begin to develop. as we look at next week and this week we'll keep the cool pattern in place for a little while. that is slowly going to recede and the gradual warm up begins as we head for the upper 70s by the time we get into the weekend. a strong cold front next week and the monday night, tuesday timeframe may bring us a pretty good chance of rain and that rain is badly needed as you you well know. on our fox5 seven day forecast we definitely have a trend of beautiful days, sunny days all ahead with each day getting just a little bit warmer than the day before. i don't think we'll see another frost advisory issued tomorrow night, but again get your preps ready tonight to protect the sensitive plants. saturday, sunday, we're partly cloudy, we climb from 75 on saturday to 77 on sunday and then we're we're looking at late monday and into tuesday for the possibility of some rain and some significant rain that will crop our temperature tuesday to 70 and maybe into the 6306s beyond that. that's your seven day forecast. tony and shawn. coming up in just a couple of moments, raising the roof lately . a major expansion now underway
