3:47 pm
meaning they understood the meaning of the words. how do they do it? the theory is that dogs start to understand that the words "good boy" are a good thing when they're said in a positive tone. though even if our furry friends sometimes have selective hearing. >> sit down. hey. sit. >> reporter: eventually they figure it out. >> good doggy. good boy. >> reporter: erica edwards, nbc news. >> marie: while dogs process words in much the same w are unique in our ability to use them. still a connection there. >> reed: that's right. does your dog speak human? or do you speak a little bit of dog? let's continue the conversation. tweet us @marienews3lv or @reednews3lv. you can tweet the station @news3lv. i have a talking dog that follows me on twitter. i do. >> marie: you do? >> reed: yep. >> marie: oh yes. of course.

3:49 pm
collision -- the result of collisions between the earth's gaseous particles and manner released by the sun's atmosphere. that is the science part. but one thing is for sure. i think people of all levels, maybe even the pups too can appreciate something as beautiful as that. you got to see this powerful display. this weather phenomenon caught on camera on a tower cam to be exact in ohio. you are looking at a micro burst here. a localized column of thunderstorm. wind speeds and micro bursts can reach up to 100 miles per hour. even higher. that's equivalent to a small tornado say the weather experts. >> reed: wow look at that dumping. time for a check of your forecast. >> marie: let's check in with our weather expert here at 3:30. what do you think of those amazing pictures. >> chloe: those are dangerous. they could down a plane. it's actually -- it's beautiful
3:50 pm
that much wind could certainly cause problems. there have been planes in the past brought down by down bursts so you got to be careful when flying certainly. we're not seeing any of that kind of weather around here. at least for now. changes are in the forecast. but nothing too incredibly drastic. outside we've got another day full of sun. look at that. a few -- just a few clouds. you can literally count them right there. school is in session at pahrump valley high school. you can see throughout theay cloudy to mostly sun skies. people are starting to leave and enjoy their day. it's going to be pretty nice. lake mead pretty calm conditions. some people going out in the water enjoying the weather. a few scattered clouds developing over mount charleston and mostly sunny skies in the valley. overall a phenomenal day. temperatures. sunrise 105 for the moment. 102 anthem.
3:51 pm
summerlin at 99. blue diamond currently at 98. like i said, mostly calm conditions. winds most part are up to ten miles an hour. but pretty light for most of our neighborhoods. nice weather does continue even outside the valley. temperatures warming up nicely. 102 degrees for pahrump as well as overton and lake mead. mid-70s mount charleston and upper 90s for indian springs. as we look at the satellite, take a look at this. we talked about the stormy weather that cin southeast including tropical depression eight. you can see it off the coast of north carolina. continuing to move northeasterly direction. around five miles an hour with sustained winds up to 35 to 40 miles an hour. we have tropical depression nine moving into the gulf. also slow moving but sustained winds still up to 35 miles an hour. this one moving in a northwesterly direction. as we get closer to home we're thought seeing any kind of that storm activity for our area.
3:52 pm
are anticipating later in the week. some moisture you can see developing and starting to move into our region from the south. mostly impacting arizona and utah over the course of the rest of the workweek. looks like we're going to stay mostly dry. if you are traveling there are chances for thunderstorms increasing as we get closer to the weekend. overnight tonight it's a fairly nice night. mild weather. nice temperatures. 83 degrees. not quite as cool as last night around the region. mid-60s for alamo. and 78 degrees for boulder city. 102 by the afternoon. 107 on tap for overton. if you are feeling brave, 118 for death valley and we're waking up to nice temperatures. 84 to start you off. we'll hit the triple digit threshold by noon. highs above normal for this time of year. winds picking up slightly out of the southeast shifting south later in the afternoon. winds will start picking up by thursday. a slight decrease in our temperatures is anticipated. as we make our way into the
3:53 pm
i hope you guys are excited about this. we're going to go from 105 to 95 monday and tuesday. >> marie: for las vegas that's awesome. here is a candidate for sports play of the year. take a look closely. columbine high school junior dylan got behind the defense and found himself in a foot race with the goal keeper. they got the ball multly the keeper slides down and dylan goes way up. he did that front flip with half twist and stick landing. all capped off by scoring a goal. i wonder if he was in gymnastics? you could call the kicker, the goal didn't count because the referees called dylan off sides. so this was not a long celebration but the memory is still a very nice consolation prize and, of course, the video that's now gone viral. >> reed: that's got to be some in recruiters hands.
3:54 pm
we go. a civic duty we all have to do. taylor swift showed up for jury duty in nashville monday. swift posed for pictures. swift was in the jury pool for an aggravated rape and kidnapping case. she was dismissed when swift explains her concerns over hearing a case of that nature citing her own upcoming trial over allegations she was groped at a fan meet and greet. swift also assured the judge she's happy to serve on a on any other type of case. >> marie: what is nice is that she was able to pose with potential jurors. look at all those smiles. they're probably like hey this is the best jury duty call ever. [ laughter ] >> reed: and she could actually get out of it so she could clear the way for her and have a fair trial for the victim. have a good night. >> hello. i'm mark hyman. federal law says every federal agency must complete an annual audit.
3:55 pm
unbelievably federal agencies didn't have their books routinely inspected. a 1996 law was supposed to change that. the results have been mixed. federal government doesn't use the same accounting standards required of public industry. it's created it's own. even then some federal agencies fail at delivering a clean audit. or in the case of the defense attorney, it doesn't eve -- defense department it doesn't even bother. for each of the past 20 years the pentagon h in not undergoing an audit. let's examine the army. they reviewed the army's financial statements. this isn't an audit. it's just a review to ensure the army's numbers add up. it's paperwork is in order. for 2015 the army didn't have paperwork justifying six-and-a-half trillion dollars in financial activity. not million. not billion. trillion. the army couldn't justify changes to how it received or
3:56 pm
to the tune of six-and-a-half trillion. in just the third quarter, 16-and-a-half thousand accounting records were removed without explanation. and no one at the white house or in congress appears overly concerned. to comment, go to
