above, gaithersburg at 9. and farther to our west, most locations are hovering around 10. mn mountain, shenandoah valley low teens. low to mid teens away the chesapeake bay. but with a gentle breeze, windchills are right near zero. so it doesn't take much of a wind to have these even subzero windchills north and west of us. a look at the hour by hour timing on some snow coming our way, that will be in just a few minutes. new this morning, a person is dead after a crash in clinton, maryland. the person was driving the wrong way on branch avenue near malcolm road. one driver killed, the other had to be cut out of their vehicle. police do not believe alcohol was a

successor and supreme court balance of power. he was as well-known for his sense of humor as his fiery disevedi disse dissents, influenced the law of the land on issues ranges from gun ownership to free speech. but he was a firm opponent of the letter of the law, not the intent. >> i do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: the nation's first italian american justice was appointed in 1986 by president r ronald reagan. >> i'm not going on to the court with a list of things that i want to do. my only agenda is to be a good judge. >> reporter: and he was confirmed unanimously, an unlikely scenario for his successor. president obama says he will choose a nominee, but leaders of the republican controlled senate have already made it clear they do not want to move forward
next year. brian mooar, nbc news, washington. and outside the u.s. supreme court, a flag at half-staff, flowers and candles. we honor his extraordinary service to our nation. we were actually able to catch up with a few who braved the frigid temperatures to pay their respects at a memorial that was made on the steps of the supreme court. some included law students who studied scalia closely. >> i just think regardless of the politics, it's cool to stop by and pay your respects to someone who had a big effect on the country and kind of social politics of the nation. >> later this morning, we'll break down the latest on the fight brewing to now fill justice scalia's seat. we're working to learn the name of the man found dead inside a prince george's county home. someone called police to on to a
welfare check yesterday afternoon. when officers got to the home on armstrong lane in upper marlboro, they found the man had been shot. police have not i had tied any suspects in this murder. we're learning will information victims in the child abuse and pornography case involving a teacher's aide. police confirm there are 16 alleged victims. and they say a kild was victimized at the lutheran church in bowie. dioneonte carraway is charged. we have much more on this case this our nbc washington app, including a statement from the carraway family. a maryland lawmaker wants to prevent tragedies like the one involving her mom and little girl killed in prince george's county county. an y a brill isnamed
the little girl's father admitted to i will will killing. it feels like close to zero and the temperatures aren't too far off. that's why it is a storm team 4 weather alert day and tom is tracking more cold weather this week. and it is not easy being out in this kind of cold. check out the ice on this firefighter's mask. the dangerous situations they had to deal with out in the elements.
you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise) (donkey noise) hey candidates, answer the call already.
no one was hurt. no word on how it all started. incredible the temperatures they go through. >> and they have digits to just near 10 degrees. look at oakland, that is the temperature, not the purchase temperature it is as zero there. low and mid teens around the bay. prince george's county now near 10 degrees. it's
montgomery county near 10. reagan national now at 13 degrees. and the purchases, around 10 miles per hour, windchills to subzero to near zero. winter storm warning off to our west. snow begins late sunday night there and then a wintry mix honest afternoon, could get up to a quarter inch of ice after we do get some snow. a little bit of a breeze. live view at union station. by noon, should be right away 20 degrees. by 3:00 p.m., mid 20s. and then low 20s 6:00 to 9:00 as clouds increase. but we'll have a light wind today. the storm system that will be affecting us is right now here in the central plains and upper midwest. it will take a curve and then come sweeping right along the atlantic seaboard. so 10:00 tonight, the leading edge of some snow coming
panhandle of west virginia. that snow advances right into the metro area away mround midn to 1:00. may abate a bit around dawn, but then moves back in a bit later in the morning on monday. and then this is all snow, most of maryland, virginia through noontime and through around 2:00, 3:00, it continues to snow. and then rain by 6:00 p.m., the pink is freezing rain. and then it's all rain after that, all the way into monday night and much of tuesday. leaving as much snow by the time it ends 2 to 4 inches we were northern suburb, all the way into the panhandle of west virginia. nearby suburbs north and west could have around 2 to 3 inches. right this washington, southern eastern suburb, 1 to 2 inch amounts. 1 inch or less far southern parts to the eastern shore. and temperatures will be holding
so it will be sticking during the morning hours. and then changing to that mix of some freezing rain and sleet and then all rain. tuesday afternoon may make it into the low to mid-50s and then maybe light rain wednesday morning. another nice day on wednesday afternoon. this to the low 50s. and then a bit cooler thursday and friday, highs in the 40s both those days. and then look at next saturday, mild, it may be near 60 degrees next saturday. that should warm your valentine's day. >> oh, wow. >> we like that. 6:14. next up, reporter's note book. >> we'll be back in 15 minutes with more of the top stories. good morning. welcome to reporter's note book. i'm pat lawson muse. an elementary school volunteer and youth choir director has been the focus of a lot of media coverage
because he's accused of recording vile sexual acts between children on school grounds. police say deonte carraway may have abused up to 30 children. a new lawsuit claims the principal knew about the abuse and did nothing to stop it. that story has riveted the attention of many in the washington area. many people wondering how something like thiscould happen ongrounds, how no one could thouknow. who could be at fault here? >> i think the pointer is pointed at the administrators. this was constantly being reported on this week that the children knew. and if you're talking 30 children and these are young kids, so you know they are talking to each other, i think
that you probably could point the fingers atted a h ed a hiad tors more than anything else and maybe this is why children have a problem with saying things because adults don't take them seriously. >> it's hard to believe that there would have been ten children, 11 children in the same school engaged in this kind of activity and no one else know about it. that they are not talking about it. >> i think what is going to end up happening, sort of the old saying i think it will fall back on the principal. what did she snow and when did she know it. that line. because what you have is some conflicting information. the union that represents staff and the principal said that the principal called other police and called child protective services and child protective services says we'll handle it. you hear other reports saying that teachers and other staff in the school went to the principal and said there is something not right about this guy, calling these students out of class, coming to see him individually. and that
it. >> they raised the red flag. >> so you have sort of two sides here and that is the nitty-gritty here. what did the principal know, the person in charge in school and why nothing was done. it seems to me they at least knew that this volunteer was pulling students out of class and you would think just in general that would be a red flag to say why the volunteer doing this because he was not a teacher assistant at that time. remember, he had been laid off and brought back districtly ast volunteer. >> obviously parents are concerned and trust is an issue. my parent said i'm not sending my son to school. how do they regain the trust of parents at that particular schooll scho school? >> it will be very difficult. the
for some reason it didn't raise to that level. and as far as the school situation goes, it looks like a he said/he said kind of a thing. yes, i did this, but nobody paid attention and other people said, no, you didn't pay attention that will require an investigation. but whether this requires replacing people, changing people around, a new administration, i think all those things are options. >> i think you're right. to answer your question directly, that's the first thing that came to my mind. i think you have to clean house with the administration and put a no nonsense administrator in there. and then there has to be some education with parents and teachers. you have to go through the whole thing. and you may have to have psychological assistance in that school, too, because you you've damaged a lot of kids. >> if i can add the level of this, t
at that press conference. so it tells you that they recognize that it's a big issue and the state's attorney also said is that she offered to the school to show them how it identify child predators, you know, what is the best way to that. and the school system didn't take her up on that offer. two sheriff's deputies after being shot at a panera bread restaurant last week. and the suspect shot by sheriff. maryland has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. do you think this incident will have an impact on the ongoing debate? >> i think that they will probably look at this and say this gentleman was 67 years old, were there some mental issues going on with him here. and also, you know, in particular in this case, he had two warrants already out. one in florida for
policeman and one this harford county. so i think you will have the pro gun rights say it wasn't about the guns, it was about this person. was 67 years old, was he mentally unstable. obviously the anti-gun rights folks will say if he wasn't in possession of a gun also that they toupd one i think in his vehicle maybe this wouldn't take place. so i think the fact that police officers were shot and killed also adds to it. >> the anti-gun folks will say there are too many guns out there. people like that will get guns whether he should have them or not. yes, we can't stop individual cases like this, but overall we can make things better if there were stricter rules. >> and you have to take into consideration the argument that having a gun automatically makes you safe. if that was the case, you had deputies trained to have a gun and it didn't
difference. how many times have we said to people if somebody gets the drop on you, you can handle a gun, it will be a very dangerous situation. and this is a perfect example. so, yes, all of this play into the debate. but careful. you want teachers to have a gun, you want preachers to have gun. look, somebody gets the drop on you, what do you do. >> what do you think about the maryland state senate overriding governor hogan's veto of a bill to restore voting rights for felons who haven't finished serving parole? >> it's a lap in the face for the governor. he was really pushing hard on this one. but the argument was that -- well, the argument for it is that they haven't fully paid their debt to society. that was the republican and legislature crowd and that was governor hogan's
they have to do their prison and then the point right after that. the parole part. but the people said, no, they have already fulfilled their debt to society by going to jail. and one thing about will is it gets them in the sl, it gets them to vote, it gets them to participate. maybe that will help recidivism. if people don't think they have a stake in society when they get out, it's more than not getting a job or not being part of society. this will help them feel that they have something going for them and it might help. >> and this particular bill takes effect almost immediately. >> and i think you were telling us that 20,000 in baltimore alone may be able to vote and that's quite a con ststituencco. i mean the reality is that these individuals pay taxes, they have to get jobs, they have paid their debt, they served their time. reporting to a patrol
for the most part is a function just how you're doing. and so i'm so glad that the senate understood the importance of trying to make these individuals whole again. >> i think what is fascinating here, too, even though there were vetoes in house and senate, i think each time it was just one vote and the governor said this is partisan pal tiolitics e said we can work together. well, he's already thrown the gauntlet down saying this is partisan. and the issue of race did factor into this. joanne benson says a majority of these felons are african american, that is an issue and it is unfair. so politics and race was involved in this issue also. >> got it take a break. be right back.
i lead the 11 o'clock news with stories of gun violence. and like many
of you, my family lived through the beltway sniper crisis. in congress, i'll fight to expand background checks on guns and ammunition, ban assault weapons, and mandate gun safety locks, because too many kids die from accidental shootings. let's show the nra we're not afraid of them; as democrats, as americans, as parents. i'm kathleen matthews and i approve this message.
with falling ridership. it's down to 2004 levels. a new report shows december marked the fifth consecutive month of low ridership. >> they need better management, day to day commitment to promising proper things and service, making the equipment run and getting there on time. but the question is will they be able to do it. >> what are al these former riders doing? how are they going around? using uber and lyft? >> well, listen, we have to factor this gas prices are at an all-time low. in some areas it was at 99 cents. opec, some of these folks have
going to do because there is such a surplus of oil. so if you can drive your car and if doesn't cost you as much, you'll say maybe metro isn't as convenient as me driving. to joe's point, i do think you have to factor in this bike sharing issue. they have the bikes all over the city. so i think all of those are factors. i think it's probably too easy for us to say metro has had all these problems. >> and i think the problems are a large reason why people aren't riding. >> that may be the spike. but i think in general ridership is going down because of poor service. >> you've heard me talk about how much i enjoy metro. but my observation because i ride it a great deal, one, they
stations. if they're listening, come me a favor at gallery place, farra t farragut, clean them. the recent problems with the students at wilsons high school, i even backed up riding the red line because of that. >> i think wiedefeld said we need the ridership with us and right now they're not on board with us. >> a lot of them may be sitting this traffic on i-66. so virginia lawmakers have agreed to widen a four mile stretch of interstate 66 between the dulles connector road and ballston, and the deal includes tolls to improve the flow of traffic. is this ao
way. i'm getting rumblings from people on the hill, i won't say who, and the way the phrasing is, we thought we had a deal that this wouldn't happen. we thought we hat -- there were other alternatives to congestion. they're not ready to say no, brbut the impression i guess is they're not pleased. sdl a l s sdl. >> a lot of people don't think it will ease the congestion. >> i think it may a bit, but it's the ones who are single riders. now that you'll have to pay a toll in some of these places to right along i-66 and that's where the will be rubber hits the road. i think it boils down to are you willing to pay to have a smoother ride or are you saying, wait a minute, should there be
because they're thinking about widening i-66 down the road. >> i'm a mass transit person. i was just down 66 at a speech i gave out in fairfax. and before i got to two tolls, i had kicked out almost $5. i mean, i don't know how working people who aren't making a lot of money to begin with can afford it. it is very, very expensive. and so i hope people on capitol hill raise about this. because tolls are going up and wages are not. so it costs to go to work. >> it sure does. no matter which form of transportation you take. thank you. stay with us.
it's 6:30 and here are the stories that we're following right now. supreme court justice antonin scalia has died. the 79-year-old was reportedly visiting a spa in texas. officials say he died of natural causes. meanwhile the fight to replace his seat is just beginning. we're working to learn the name of the man found dead inside a home on armstrong lane yesterday. and we now know about 16 alleged victims in a pornography case involving a prince george's county teacher's aid. dionne say carraway victimized children in glenarden stiylvani woods school and at a church.
and it's dangerous to be outside for too long. this is the kind of cold that hits you as soon as you he step outside. >> it is cold out there no question he. and for that reason, it takes storm team 4 weather alert day. we're tracking the cold air and, yes, more snow that could make a mess in the week ahead. >> good morning, everyone. i'm angie goff. >> and i'm david culver in for adam tuss. we want to get right over to tom kierein. tom, single digits in some areas. we saw windchills near zero in some spots. >> and the windsdy minute ired overnight, but it's enough to bring the windchills down to zero or even subzero at dawn on this sunday. there the first light of day showing up on this stone cold sunday morning. we've got a clear sky starting off live view from the storm team 4 tower camera overlooking washington this morning.

per hour. philadelphia, hartford, connecticut could all see record lows. this boston, windchills could make it feel like 35 below in interest places. you heard it here. problem will try to fill the supreme cou supreme court seat left vacant by justice scalia. the question turns to whether or not that person will be appointed by the republican is that the thsenate. we spoke with pete williams on how the nomination time table could play out. >> it's inconceivable a new nominee would be confirmed before late june or before the next term starts in early october. so we'll
without nine which raises the possibility of tied votes. >> president obama also says the nomination for the seat is bigger than any one party and that the senate should have plenty of time to give that person a fair hearing and timely vote. in decision 2016, the republican candidates squared off in a debate in south carolina. the gop primary there is next week. chris pollone has more on how the supreme court justice scalia's passing impacted the debate. >> reporter: the six remaining republican dwits for president on the debate stage in south carolina just hours after learning of the death of supreme court justice antonin scalia. heaping price on the stalwart. >> he's one of the great justices. >> reporter: and how many are urge youing the senate to block president obama's next appointment to the court. >> the senate needs to stand strong and
liberal appointee. >> reporter: while donald trump and ted cruz have been sniping at each other, it was trump and jeb bush who got in the most heated exchanges. >> jeb is so wrong. jeb is absolutely so -- just so you understand, you know what that is, that is jeb's special interests and lo be bbyists tal. >> i'm tired of him going after my family. while donald trump was building a reality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe. >> reporter: many analysts say marco rubio needed a bounce back performance after stumbling in the new hampshire debate. but the florida senator disappeared from the discussion if long stretches until finally clashes with ted cruz over immigration. >> ted cruz supported legalizing people that were in this country and only now does he say--
primary a week away, a chance for the front runners to solidify their positions with those trailing behind to gather much needed momentum. chris pollone, nbc news, new york. and three of the hopefuls will be on this morning's "meet the press." donald trump, marco rubio and governor john kasich going to discuss their debate performances with chuck todd. right now interstate 78 outside harrisburg, pennsylvania is still shut down after a massive 50 car crash. take a look at some of these pictures of the cars and the trailers. wow. the crash happened yesterday morning. police say that a fast moving snow squall moved through the area. this caused a lot of problems, a huge pileup. three people have died, some first responders had to walk more than a mile to reach victims. the road will be closed until towing crews can remove the
going 20 miles an hour over the posted speed limit or faster tan 80, you automatically get charged with reckless driving.change comes -- rather, that charge comes with a threat of a year in jail. but on some interstates the posted speed limit is 70. so the new bill would only charge drivers going over 85 that limit and then they would get the reckless driving cha ii. the bill now goes before the transportation committee. pope francis will celebrate mass in mexico today. vatican officials estimate as many as 1 million will come out to catch a glimpse of the holy father. yesterday the pope celebrated mass in mexico city and greeted thousands in a parade around the city. sf an earth quake was felt in eight states last night.

you about justice scalia. >> you could argue that he's created a whole generation of juryists. is he sort of now the guy and will be even more so this death that is seen for conservative legal scholars sort of the shining light. but, boy, the political implications of this. what we will see in an election year, you will see republicans trying to stop this, you will see democrats trying to pressure republicans to force at least a confirmation hearing and a vote. i think you will see the senate get into a paralyzed situation where i think nothing will get done until they figure out some path out of this. >> were you surprised to see that this was the first question? >> not at all. this sort of crystal lize
is justice scalia, 79, dies of natural causes. a couple others are mid to late 70s. the next president will probably appoint one if not two or three. and so this has been sort of bubbling under the surface and i think this death thousand brings the supreme court issue front and center for both parties. >> we see there the debate obviously. if you're to pick a winner, who comes out on top? >> i thought jeb bush and marco rubio had the best nights. and jeb bush probably you'd call him the winner only because he's got the moment that is being the back and tort thforth that is b talked about the monthed most. but donald trump was involved in just about every major skirmish about one between cruz and rubio
trump went down some paths that i didn't expect to hear in a republican primary on george w. bush, basically acknowledging that, yeah, he would have been okay if there had been impeachment proceedings over iraq. and he tripled down on the idea of the iraq war and saying it was a mistake and saying that bush did not keep us safe since 9/11 happened on his watch. so that is a risky strategy in a straight that george w. bush is popular in. but to voters separate the personal from the professional. >> and still a week to on go. >> i love how they're always talking about it's getting nasty. we're still at a low grade intensity on nasty. i have a feeling the next couple days week kick it up a notch. >> and you have a super busy
show. >> i got cruz wanted in, you got trump, rubio. we had trump, rubio and kasich. ted cruz wants to talk about scalia. so we've got the top four of the five candidates and they all will be all live. don't miss it. >> see you in about 3 1/2 hours. >> hopefully i need that long of a show. >> and you can see "meet the press" every sunday right here on nbc 4 right after news # 4 "today." two robberies happened saturday morning. first in bethesda and 25 minutes later, a man robbed the m and t bank in ken zipg tsingtonkensin. no one hurt. the chinese new year parade is scheduled to happen today at 2:00. several streets will be closed for the de
and until about 5:30. you'll need big puffy coat this is car seats and that can be a dangerous combination. >> susan hoe again with a warning for you this morning. >> there is a real danger for children wearing puffy winter coats. but easy ways to keep them safe. a bulky coat and car seat can be a dangerous combination. emily thomas says the harness might not be tight enough to secure your child thin a crash. she
check. they put ben in a snowsuit and properly secured him in so there was no slack in the harness seats. and then removed ben's coat and put him back in the seat to see how loose the straps were. >> in the event of a frontal crash, all this extra room means that there is so much more space for ben to ride up and his head to be outside the protection of the shell, which would mean that he could have a head injury. >> reporter: use the same test for bigger kids to see how much room their puffy coat puts between them and their harness. >> in addition to not wearing a coat, allege make sure that your child is properly harnessed every time. should you not be able to pinch any fabric and their chest clip should always be at arm pit level. >> reporter: for a baby, consumer reports recommends first securing her into her seat and then .ing a blanket on top of the harness. and for bigger kids, teach them
coat over the harness for riding in the car. consumer reports also suggests you periodically go to a car seat checkup event too-to-make surer seat is properly installed. >> a good warning there. >> and another thing is speaking from experience because i have to admit i would just put them in with their coats on is overheating. that happens with the kids because they have these big puffy coats and you have the heat cranked up which we'll need that today. >> yeah, the car heaters work really fast. you only drive a few minutes and the heat is going. so you don't really need to be all bundled up inside the car, but you do need to if you'll be outside. it is a stone cold sunday morning and we have a clear sky. live view of the sun rise. sun coming up this about ten minutes in a clear sky and we have thankfully a light wind. all that area in pink, that is
shenandoah valley and far western northern suburbs to snow changing to a wintry mix on monday afternoon. could get 1 to 4 inches and a quarter of an inch of ice on top of that. right now temperatures in the single digits. much of northern virginia is near 10, loudoun, fairfax, prince william county, fauquier. it's in single digits this southern fauquier, culpeper over toward fredericksburg. much of southern maryland in the low teens, head teens right near the chesapeake bay and off to our west, oakland, that is not the windchill, that is the air temperature at the zero right now. the windchills, they are subzero with the wind only blowing around 5 to 10 miles per hour north and west of us and near zero windchills much of the region. so you need neto watch
