"meet the press" moderator chuck todd is also the moderator of tonight's debate on msnbc. he's in new hampshire giving us an inside look. >> reporter: it is the only one-on-one debate we have had so far in this presidential campaign season on either side of the aisle. bernie sanders, hillary clinton. and the big debate really is about style and tactics. it's less on issue and policy positions. clinton and sanders agree and have a lot of the same goals on what they want to do. the question is tactics. and you see them arguing over who is a progressive. what this really means is bernie sanders is saying, you got to have big bold ideas and you have to be willing to try to get the bold stuff actually passed and through. hillary clinton is trying desperately so say, hey, wait a
4:07 pm
minute, i'm also a progressive, too, but i've got a pragmatic streak in that i am trying to advance a progressive agenda and get things done. we'll see what happens. i'm looking forward to it. hope you will too. we'll see you 9:00 p.m. eastern. >> there it is. you can see chuck and msnbc host rachel maddow tonight. they'll be moderating that candidates' debate. again, like chuck said, starts at 9:00 on msnbc. he is getting back into the game. just like news 4's tom sherwood first reported, former d.c. mayor vincent gray is getting back into politics. >> i made a decision that i'm going to run for the ward 7 seat. >> gray made the announcement on the wamu kojo show today. he's a former ward 7 council member. in 2014 he lost his bid for re-election for mayor to muriel bowser. he says current ward member yvette alexander has disappointed citizens. >> ward 7 is home.
4:08 pm
i have lived in ward 7 for a very long time. sadly, there's wide dissatisfaction at this stage with the representation. >> alexander told news4 this week she is prepared to run for re-election against gray or anyone else. this time of year they're just about impossible to avoid, pothole problems are popping up everywhere you look. we'll show you some of the damage local drivers are dealing with. and there's a lot of rain lighting up storm team4 radar right now. veronica and amelia are tracking how it's going to mean snow for some of us tomorrow.
4:09 pm
i do everything on the internet. but it's kind of slow. my friends said i should get fios because it's the fastest, but i thought it would be too expensive.

and now your storm team4 forecast. >> and we'll have rain pushing into the metro area around midnight. snow mixes in as early as 2:00 p.m. the most snow will fall in extreme parts of southern maryland and the northern neck where a dusting to three inches is possible. further west of the area we're talking about more of a rain/snow mix, but it's all about the timing. it lines up exactly with the morning rush hour and that's why this event could have a moderate impact on your day tomorrow. you can see an inch or less in other parts of southern maryland in the metro area, just a rain/snow mix, really no accumulation. another big question mark with this forecast is does the system actually push far enough west into parts of frederick, loudoun, fauquier counties? if it does, it will be cool enough you will see an inch or less there. veronica has more in ten minutes.
4:12 pm
i'm meagan fitzgerald in montgomery county where this is just one area dealing with potholes. that means auto body shops are busy dealing with the damage it leaves behind. >> reporter: it doesn't matter where you drive, chances are you have come across some potholes. maryland state highway administration says so far this year they have already seen hundreds along many of their roadways since january. crews are out in maryland and d.c. patching up what they can while auto body shops say they're busy repairing dented wheels and flat tires. coming up at 5:00, what mechanics say the damage they're seeing this year is more expensive than past years. first at 4, it's the new hub for all things metro. and we're going to give you a unique look behind the scenes. only on news4, why metro says it's now one of the most wired systems in the country if not the world. and you may have seen this story pop up on your facebook feed.

4:17 pm
say if it's not the most wired system in the entire country, then it's one of the most and probably in the world. coming up on news4 at 5:00, we'll tell what you the police chief says about this new facility and whether metro can actually ban anybody because they committed a crime on the system. back to you. i guess first thing's first, folks got to get home tonight. >> what kind of commute do you expect it to be? >> this commute will be just fine. there are some rain showers out there right now, but it's mainly well south of our area down through southern maryland and northern neck. if you live around montrose, calvert beach, drumpoint, or leonardtown, you're seeing just rain showers right now but it's part of the same system that's going to continue tracking northward. the temperature is 45 degrees. as we get into early tomorrow morning, we're into the 30s so there will be some snow showers mixing in with rain showers for
4:18 pm
your friday morning rush. so here is the radar, the latest. leonardtown, calvert beach area. right now you're showers, but look at the moisture down through areas of eastern north carolina. that's the coastal storm system that will continue making its way up the coast for us early tomorrow morning. what to expect, accumulation mainly on grassy areas. most of our roads are just fine because those temperatures even right now are in the mid-40s to low 50s. there could, however, be a few isolated slick spots out there, especially any of the sheltered roads. here is a look at midnight. there is your rain showers in green. notice the pink. that's a mixture of rain and snow. the white is all snow up there. mostly what we're going to be getting around 4:00 a.m., that's your change time, is a mixture of rain and snow. good idea to download the nbc washington app right now because you can track it for the morning rush tomorrow. it's not until 7:00, 8:00 a.m. until we see this pulling out of here. which is why we're saying it will have moderate impacts. a dusting to three inches, areas of salisbury, leonardtown, montrose, down to the northern
4:19 pm
neck. here is where the winter weather advisories have been posted. that's where most of the snow could be on grassy areas. mixture of rain and snow into the d.c. metro area. fairfax, i-95 corridor, friends up toward baltimore, around columbia, maryland, manassas, a mixture of rain and snow. that's really going to cut down even from what you see on the grassy areas, an inch around leesburg, gaithersburg, and up toward frederick. that's the map. it will be very slushy. most of the snow that will accumulate will be right down here through southern maryland and areas east. the early morning temperatures, they're low enough in the 30s and low 30s to the north and west, leesburg around gaithersburg. so, again, wintry weather for early tomorrow morning. easy out the door. what to wear? you will need the coat, the hat, the gloves, even the umbrella because of so much rain starting to mix in with the system. want to show you the windchill temperatures midday. it's going to be cold, windy. we'll be around 32 to 35 degrees and stay in the 30s all day long. we've got a lot more on improving conditions for the
4:20 pm
weekend but we're not done with the winter because we're already talking about another system early next week. amelia has more on that coming up. >> all right, v.j. thanks. well, the super bowl media circus is going strong. >> today a special correspondent had even the stars star struck. carol maloney live in san francisco with more. >> reporter: hey, guys. yeah, the game is three days away, and the players are so done with the media. figuratively and literally. last session today, and both teams blown away by a guest correspondent who happens to go by the name of snoop dogg. yes, the d-o-g-g, he caused quite a come motion when he showed up for the press event. players were late on account of the long lines for selfies. snoop reporting for the nfl network and brought both the serious and the fun to the
4:21 pm
podium. >> working the medium. talk to me. first of all i want to say -- ♪ cam, oh, cam, cam, dance with me ♪ there you go. >> is it st. fair to say you're getting advice from archie and eli. >> snoop, i have always enjoyed my conversations with my dad and eli. i'm very grateful to have both of those guys that have played in the nfl, still are in the nfl, to be able to talk to, so i feel very fortunate. >> reporter: peyton lost me after he said, well, snoop -- i know it was a serious answer though. he did say he'd give him half off the pizzas when he comes to denver. i was like i hear that. you do not want to miss the story we have coming up for you on news4 at 5:00. we're talking to vernon davis, the guy from the dmv, on his bumpy road to his second super
4:22 pm
bowl. stay tuned for that. >> all right. thanks a lot, carol. millions of cars on a new recall list. which cars are now part of a larger group with a serious safety problem? they represent the nation's capital on the soccer field but a mistake over their representation is getting a lot of raised eyebrows on social media. and at the top of the newscast we told you about three cases of zika right here in the district. all three victims contracted the virus while outside this country. we want to know if fears over zika have you changing your travel plans? >> it's our washington flash survey. call or text the answer to the number on your screen or head

say so long to an american restaurant staple and the facebook video everybody is talking about today. cane of hot 99.5 is here with us this afternoon. good to see you always. let's start with a little bit of a word fumble involving one of d.c.'s popular sports teams. the words were mixed up a little. >> d.c. united has new jerseys and one of the things along the collar was the saying taxation without representation. however, the way the fabric was
4:26 pm
cut, it made it a little bit different. as a matter of fact, it almost read representation without taxation. adidas says it's just the way the print was sewn on the inside of the collar. they meant nothing by it, but it would make a lot more sense if you were yoda or had a comma or a question mark, of course. >> yoda. >> taxation without representation? >> just a little mix-up. from soccer to subway and we're talking about subway the restaurant chain. it says the $5 foot long is about to become a thing of the past. >> it is today. is nothing sacred anymore? there's no more $5 foot long. it's now a $6 foot long. where is pat collins and his measurement stick? i want to make sure i'm getting what i -- take a look at this. obviously people on social media went ballistic. subway explained why, but as of today it's now going to cost you $6 for a foot long. >> you know, everything is costing a little more these days.
4:27 pm
>> no more jingle either. they have to change everything. >> yeah. we won't go there. if you've looked at your facebook feed even one time today, you have probably seen these videos everyone is sharing. explain what these are all about. >> so today is friends day. it's facebook's 12th birthday. can you believe it, they've been around 12 years? and it's been causing a lot of talk because it brings up photos randomly automated that you can show on your time line. you don't have to show them, but it introduces your last 12 years if you've been with facebook since day one and some of our interns realized there were photos on there they didn't want us to necessarily see and that's the thing that's been causing the discussions. imagine having pictures of you and an ex from five years ago up on facebook. >> i can imagine that would upset some people. i know you have hot tickets tomorrow. >> we do. we'll send you to florida to have cake by the ocean. that's going to happen at 7:25 and 8:25 tomorrow morning. >> tastes better that way. >> yes, it does.
4:28 pm
>> i'll bet. chris, back to you. coming up, you'll meet the woman in our area who has been diagnosed with the zika virus. how it's affecting her daily life as we're learning about more people in the area dealing with zika. and we're in for an interesting next 18 hours or so. some of you will be under a winter weather advisory. storm team4 tracks the potential
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
4:31 pm
now at 4:30, it's a rapidly developing weather situation. take a look at the rain on the storm team4 radar. >> for now it's just rain and it's just outside of the d.c. area, but that's about to change for some of you. we'll talk with the storm team in just a moment to break down the forecast. until then, make sure you download the nbc washington app so you can always get the forecast. we are following new local developments in the zika outbreak. the d.c. department of health has confirmed now that three cases of the virus have shown up in the city. >> we're told all three of them contracted zika while they were traveling abroad and one of the women is pregnant. >> news4's david culver spoke with a woman believed to be the first known case of the virus in virginia. he's here with that story. david? >> pat and chris, yeah, we visited with heather baker last night, drove out to her home outside of harrisonburg, virginia. she is still dealing with some of the symptoms, namely the fact that she is just exhausted. heather showed us the letter
4:32 pm
confirming her positive case of the zika virus. that was confirmed to her just last week. but get this, it's believed she contracted it on a late november missions trip to guatemala. a few days after she got back, she started feeling fatigue, headaches, joint pain, even got a rash. it's been about two months and some of the symptoms, she says, have not gone away. >> the one doctor that has really walked with me through the entire day, he said diseases do not read textbooks. so diseases don't know how they're supposed to respond. so for me it may have done something very different than it did to most people. >> one of the biggest frustrations for heather is the information that's been floating around. we'll explain at 6:00 why she has decided to share her story. >> you know, this is so new, we know so little about it. has she changed her habits at all just out of caution? >> she has. she's taken extra precautions, especially with her own kids.
4:33 pm
she's got three teenage boys. she's not letting her kids or husband eat after her. she had a nail appointment she canceled. she has joint aches and decided to have a massage and then called the masseuse and they said better you not come in. >> it's great she's being proactive in trying to protect her family but even other people she may come in contact with. >> she's trying. it's just frustrating for her. >> david culver, thank you. and as we look to the overnight hours, rain showers that are in southern maryland and the northern neck right now will begin to move westward making it into the metro area around midnight and then snow will start to mix in in spots overnight. so rain and snow showers to deal with tomorrow morning as late as 9:00 a.m., and because of that some school delays are possible. great time to download our nbc washington app so you can see the radar there. you can check it and then waking
4:34 pm
up tomorrow morning you can see if the weather has an ige packet impact on your child's cool day. it will be breezy and cold when you factor in the winds. it will feel like temperatures are in the mid to upper 30s. but high temperatures will warm into the low 40s as clouds slowly thin throughout the day. the most heavily impacted area will be parts of southern maryland and the northern neck where a dusting to three inches is possible. elsewhere we're talking about no accumulation to maybe an inch, but it's just the timing that will have an impact on your day tomorrow morning, pat. >> all right, amelia. the man charged with killing his 2-year-old daughter and her mother won't be getting out of jail anytime soon. a judge ordered daron boswell-johnson held without bond today saying he's a danger to the community. police say johnson confessed to shooting neshante davis and their daughter chloe multiple times on tuesday. today prosecutors promised swift justice. >> our primary job here is to enforce the law. we're going to make sure we do
4:35 pm
that in a way that is firm. we're absolutely going to hold mr. johnson accountable. we're going to work this case every minute that we have available to us to make sure that justice is done. >> there was drama in court today as some of the suspect's family members testified. tracee wilkins takes us inside in 30 minutes. honda announced it's recalling 2 million more vehicles because they have air bags made by takata. >> susan hogan is here now with the important information you need to know. susan? >> thanks. this latest recall involves honda and acura vehicles because the air bag inflaters can explode and shoot shrapnel. even know honda says it has not received any sports of this particular air bag rupturing, they say the takata inflaters will be replaced with parts from an alternative supplier. repairs are expected to begin this summer.
4:36 pm
honda's 2 million vehicles are part of a bigger recall. the takata recall expanded to 5 million more vehicles last month after investigators linked the recent death of this south carolina man, joel knight, to a defective air bag in his ford truck. i sat down with knight's family who not only expressed a tremendous amount of sadness but also anger. >> how many other people are going to die before you finally fix your problems with the automobile industry? it's just not -- >> honda's recall includes older model years but also has some newer vehicles as recently as last year and even this year. for a full list of honda and all vehicles recalled for defective takata air bags, go to our nbc washington app and search air bags. back to you. it's a plan that could have your kids up and moving during the school day. where the class curriculum is about to include a lot more exercise.
4:37 pm
and the new year is more than a month old now. so i got a question for you. are you sticking to those resolutions? well, if you're not, some simple well, if you're not, some simple steps to help
4:38 pm
4:39 pm
i do everything on the internet. but it's kind of slow. my friends say i should get fios because it's the fastest. i just downloaded 600 photos in 60 seconds. that's seriously better. we're out of 2%! i wonder what else could be better around here? i heard that. switching to better internet is now easier than ever. only fios has the fastest internet available, with uploads up to 5x faster than cable. get 100 meg upload and download speeds plus tv and phone for just $69.99 a month online with no annual contract. switch to better. switch to fios. call the verizon center for customers with disabilities at 800.974.6006 tty/v well, after an overcast day with our temperatures in the upper 40s, the low 50s, we'll have our temperatures dropping to low and mid-40s late this evening. call it cool, and, yes, we are still tracking that rain moving
4:40 pm
up from the south. it will start mixing with a little bit of snow and switching over to all snow in a few areas across southern maryland. so first thing tomorrow morning, your pedestrian forecast, 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. 37 with rain and snow showers mixed. and then it will start drying out after 9:00 tomorrow. we'll get into the upper 30s, but here is what we're expecting. one inch or less north and west of d.c. rain/snow mix for most of d.c. metro area, i-95 corridor. your snow accumulating down to the south but a great weekend for getting out, skiing, exercising, out and about. a green light for everything. changes, more of the wintry type weather coming up next week. amale ya has more on that in a few. it may seem like a long time ago, the champagne, the parties, and the hangovers associated with new year's, but how about those resolutions? have you managed to drop a few pounds yet or stuck with your training? maybe your resolutions need a reboot? if so we've pulled together some tips that can help you get back on the road to keeping your resolutions. first, make one change at a
4:41 pm
time. losing weight involves making behavioral changes like cooking, changing the way you shop for food and changing your eating habits. it's easier to accomplish when you commit to doing one of those instead of all of them at the same time. also give your willpower a workout. experts say willpower should be treated like a muscle and using other muscles can help. so when the urge to break your resolution hits, try something simple like squeezing a grip strengthener. we understand that really does work. and then break up your goals. make it a point to get to the gym two, maybe three times a week or take the stairs instead of taking the elevator. you will feel a lot better every time you hit that resolution goal mark. and give your willpower a little wiggle room. instead of making a sweeping resolution like i will avoid everything that's sweet, something something more realistic like just having sweets when you go to parties. if you are having success with your resolutions, let us know about that. share what's worked on our nbc
4:42 pm
washington facebook page. chris? there is a plan in the works to get your kids more exercise while they're at school. today the virginia house of delegates passed legislation that requires kids to get at least 20 minutes of exercise in school. and the senate has already approved its own version of that bill. it applies to students kindergarten to fifth grade. >> for all the health reasons and also i think it will help their attention span in the classroom to get the wiggles out. >> i think they spend too much time sitting at desks, and i think they're kids and they deserve to run around and play and have a good time. >> not everyone is on board. delegate scott lingamfelter told our news partner the requirement would be, quote, one more activity in day that is already jam-packed with tons of things that school teachers need to deal with. >> it ripped a giant hole right into the side of a plane filled with penal. what investigators have learned about what might have been behind this disastrous flight.
