11:14 pm
you're calling the police. now watch this worker in kensington maryland cracking fresh eggs, tossing them over the soon to be served bread, then barehanded grabbing that bread, buttering it, toasting it and stacking it up to serve to unknowing customers. it all happened at kensington's donut king on university boulevard. suspended prior to our visit for operating with inadequate refrigeration. inspectors noted food in the walk-in refrigerator ranging from 45 to 49 degrees, temperatures that put you at risk of getting sick, but when we checked this is perfect. after we talked to the manager that worker put on gloves. the mexican restaurant la polopa3 in silver springs was operating without hot water and a house infestation in the walk- in unit, but when we checked, it hit 100. no signs of rodents. in the district oh street northwest i sectors cited -- on
11:15 pm

11:16 pm
project. >> we hope that people will continue to come back. we couldn't feel we have anything to hide and we're sorry that this -- don't feel we have anything to hide and we're sorry that this happened. i think it's being blown a little out of proportion. >> reporter: steamers is a very popular destination in bethesda. how do i know? i've eaten here, too. i'm investigative reporter russ ptacek, wusa9. >> all the restaurants russ visited except at home catering passed reinspection and are back in business. if you would like to be the first to know which food establishments in our area are being cited for violations, you can follow russ on twitter or friend him on facebook. as you know, there's been a whole lot of extreme weather in our northern hemisphere this year. some scientists say it's all because of that strange thing known as the jet stream. first alert chief meteorologist topper shutt is here to explain who more about how this works. >> the jet stream guides the path of storms and we've seen all the weather this year, the
11:17 pm
gamut really, floods in colorado, the late march freeze in florida. the jet stream is a river of fast moving air, the upper levels of the atmosphere, up to 18 to 30,000 feet and there is more than one jet stream. you know when we discovered the jet stream? >> when? >> world war ii. our planes couldn't fly high enough. normally the jet stream retreats north in canada. this year it's gone north and south and dramatic swings in the north and south it split into two streams and john nielsen research professor at texas a&m say the double jets played a huge role in the weather. i'll try to explain it to you, a normal versus abnormal jet. normal jet comes in british columbia summertime and dips down through the rockies and maybe into the plains and goes pretty north.
11:18 pm
so this is going to be pretty normal, cool air to the north, warm air to the south, but this year it's sunk further south which has been good for us, a cool summer, but because of that the weather was much different. this is more of a wintertime or fallish jet that actually occurred in the middle of june, july and august. yeah, the jet stream controls and guides highs and lows but also highs and lows affect the jet stream. of course, the $64,000 question is why did the jet do this this year? let's start with a live look outside, our live michael and son weather cam, 65 degrees, dew points up but it's still comfortable, humidity 68%. can't complain about that. look at this. you see kansas city, dallas clear, no big weather to our west. we're in good shape, still got rocky mountain snows, snows tonight and tomorrow. we'll zoom into the southeast in the mid-atlantic, a few clouds today. we are watching this system off the coast. this will now slide away from us. we'll be in good shape, a few clouds from time to time, but
11:19 pm
what a finish to the week and the weekend now looks pretty nice as well. mild at the bus stop, mainly in the 50s, perfect for high school football tomorrow, temperatures in the 60s for the games. weekend looks nice. i would make outdoor plans, do whatever you want. overnight partly cloudy, comfortable, lows in the 50s and then by morning partly cloudy and pleasant. 50s and 60s. by afternoon a great finish to the week, partly cloudy, seasonable, continued beautiful, high temperatures around 75. upper 50s at 5:00 and 7:00 in the morning and jump to the mid- 60s by 9:00, almost 70 by 11:00 and low 70s by 1:00, just great. next three days, beautiful tomorrow, fantastic saturday and still great sunday, temperatures either side of 75, lows in the 50s. that's perfect, no ac, no furnace. next seven days, it will go up a little bit going through
11:20 pm
monday and tuesday. by wednesday maybe 80 degrees and thursday perhaps low 80s, a couple sprinkles possible, mainly in the mountains, not enough to change your plan i'm terry mcauliffe, candidate for governor, and i sponsored this ad. for 30 years i've worked as an obgyn, my job is to protect the health of women.
11:21 pm
so i'm particularly offended by ken cuccinelli. cuccinelli wants to make all abortion illegal ... ... even in cases of rape and incest. ... even to protect a woman's health. i want a governor who's focused on schools and creating jobs, not someone who wants to do my job. who's ken cuccinelli to interfere in the lives of women across virginia?
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
now game on with dave owens live from the wusa9 cadillac sports desk. >> baylor, bing, grant hill, kevin durant, all d.c. hoopers point this area as a basketball hotbed. the pro team has been not the best since 2007. fans have been clamoring for change. with the season around the corner i sat down with the top dog ted leonsis front and center. ponder how bad it's been for a minute. washington is still reeling from gilbert's gun gate, a six year calamity of bad luck, bad drafts, bad ball, bad coaches. how has gm ernie grunfeld survived this? cats seemingly have fewer lives. it's a very i had to ask grunfeld's -- a question i had to ask grunfeld's boss, when is enough enough? what is it that made you say i'm not going to fire him.
11:24 pm
i'm going to stay with ernie? >> well, it's a plan that we articulated together. >> leonsis' loyalty might confound some, but he stands by it saying he is not judging ernie on anything before he became owner in 2010, but after 2010 hasn't been great either. the wizards have won a great total of 72 games since leonsis took over. miami won 66 last season. >> this is an important year for the franchise. we want to take a step forward. we want the team to play better and qualify for the playoffs. >> they need to. the d.c. sports scene is hot right now. records or postseason appearance as side the nats and redskins are national stories with young recognizable stars. hoop fans desperately want the wizards to return to that level. so does leonsis and if they don't, ernie on the hot seat? >> all on the hot seat. i'm on the hot seat. >> come on, you own the team. >> if those ratings aren't
11:25 pm
good, you'll be in the hot seat, too. so yeah, we live in very accountable businesses and we're all accountable. >> i don't think ted is on the hot seat. he owns the team. believe it or not, media day is tomorrow where we'll get to talk with john wall for the first time in a while and bradley beal who had that stress reaction in the lower leg. now big announcement, drumroll, please, set a record in our game of the week poll, falls church, yorktown won the poll 650,000 votes cast, highlights tomorrow night. that's going to be a lot of fun. >> but dave owens won the poll for reddest tie ever of all time. >> he's looking sharp. >> we can't even show you those shoes which if he clicks the heels together three times, he will be at his appointment in alexandria. we'll be

[ singing ] >> you might figure this is some sort of bizarre street opera until you realize instead it's a living keyboard. >> that makes it even more
11:30 pm
bizarre. >> that man dances on the keys. singers hit the appropriate notes. you may have heard snappier tunes, but the good news is i don't think there's a guinness book record involved here, just a man and his keyboard friends. that's our broadcast. thanks for sticking around. >> letterman is next. >> bye, guys. >> make it a good night.
