6:10 am
tom. >> yeah, it's just around 30 yesterday morning, we were down in the low and mid 20s. so not quite as cold. we have a clear sky, it's a quiet sunday morning. very light breeze starting off early this morning. so here's what to wear. you do need a jacket this morning, but by this afternoon, you'll be comfortable in short sleeves and you'll definitely need the sunglasses throughout the day. there is the pre-dawn glow, live view from storm team 4 tower camera on this sunday morning. sun rise at 6:43. and temperatures will be hovering by 8:00 around 40, but then look at our temperature graph, quickly climbing. it will be around 50 degrees by about 9:00 this morning. and then by noon time, it will be near 60 degrees then hitting the low to mid 60s, that will be by around 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 this afternoon. bright sunshine, a light breeze. so a mild day coming up. terrific day for outdoor recreation. right now storm team 4 radar not showing any rain or snow anywhere in our vicinity. and temperatures are in the mid 30s shenandoah
6:11 am
30 nearby suburbs and low to mid-30s around the chesapeake bay. and the storm team 4 four day forecast showing big changes on the way over the next several days. we'll have a springlike pattern after today. now, tomorrow morning some clouds around, we'll maybe get a passing light shower tomorrow morning for the morning commute, maybe just a few sprinkles and we'll be in the upper 40s. but then in the afternoon, we soar into the upper 60s it looks like on monday afternoon. so the final day of february, certainly not acting like winter. as we start off march on tuesday, lots of sunshine. 40s in the morning, afternoon highs in the mid-60s again on tuesday. then a front comes in on wednesd wednesday. maybe showers an thundershower can der wednesday afternoon into wednesday evening. before then, temperatures should make it into the upper 50s. after that front goes by,
6:12 am
on thursday, partly sunny, morning lows near freezing. afternoon highs into the mid-40s. remains chilly on friday, as well. heig might get passing snow showers. saturday, sunshine back with highs in the 40s. so big changes on the way next several day. >> we will enjoy it today because today is the pick of the weekend. >> that's right. look at the background. >> already so gorgeous. 6:14. next up, we have reporter's notebook for you. >> we'll be back in 15 minutes with more of your top stories. welcome to reporter's notebook. we have a lot to talk about today. let's start in the old dough minu dominion. the virginia senate has passed a bill that would allow police to maintain -- hide their
6:13 am
to give their names. what do we think of that? aclu says we're creating the secret police. this doesn't feel good at all. >> well, that's the argument of the sclu and those of white house cover this stuff, the people who abdicate for us, they are another not thrilled with it. but people are identified in certain stories, think crime, drugs, they blog you, they identify you and there are people out there who want to knock you off. and we need protection. the argument against it which we can go into more is, look, it could be viewed as a secret police move. why not move to politicians. maybe president obama's name shouldn't be in the paper so much. people want to knock him off. >> and actually they would be appreciated from freedom of information. so in anyone was trying to find out as we saw in fairfax
6:14 am
when that gentleman, that man was killed in the police standoff, we didn't learn that police officer's name for a year. >> and in retrospect, fairfax county said maybe that wasn't such a good idea that it took so long, but it seems like they're reverting back to that. this is a slippery slope, but i think this is a sign of the times. you have had police organizations and ups come out and say that we believe police are under assault right now. they are under threat. and that with all of these movements pushing back against police brutality, they feel like now they are targets. and i think that's what this bill is all about. we're talking about in virginia, but this conversation has come up throughout police departments all across the country. so if passes through the virginia assembly, i think other
6:15 am
saying this should be the model. but the other side says our whole issue now especially in chicago, what rahm eplan you'em dealing with, you kept the video out for a year until the courts forced you to release it. >> the question is how far do you go. the police department you step off your front doorstep, you technically could be a target to somebody who just doesn't like people in uniform. where does this go sf. >> and also how do you enforce it. so a police officer pulls you youoff. they're not wearing a badge with their name on it in they will be revealed when they write tickets. they go to court for cases, their names would still be there. so i don't know how they would enforce it. and also you look at community policing where right now, do we need more of a divide right now considering the climate? i unders
6:16 am
appreciate how hard it is for the families of these officers and for the officers, you know, a couple bad apple makes them all look bad and that's not far. but is this the way to do it. when if anything we need to feel more of the brotherhood, if you will. >> and i think that's a very important point. because if you see a lot of these police departments around, they're pushing that they need more community policing, they need more police out on the street on beats and we see that in washington, d.c., the union is pushing to get police from out behind the desk. and so they're trying to make connections to the community. you want to connect with the community, but if there is issue with the community where they don't have access to others involved, then you may have a contradiction there in terms of where you're trying to go. >> here you are saying,
6:17 am
my name. >> let's stay in the old dominion for something that i thought was interesting. they are considering legislation that would change the rules for high school graduates, that they would need to have a new set of skills instead of just standard uz ized testing that would allow them to prove that they could become a, quote, successful contributor to virginia's economy. what is that? i'm going into my senior year, what -- i'm thinking what, what does that mean? >> well, let's look at it from a couple of points. one, we know the whole issue of standardized testing is being reviewed. you have major includes like right here in the scity saying maybe we shouldn't do s.a.t. tests. and so that is sort of a move right there.
6:18 am
i think the terminology, you would think they could have said contribute to the good will of the commonwealth. just to make the nation better. this passed 99-1 in the house, 40-0 in the senate. >> so who is going to vote against that bill. >> yes. elevate our students and make them better people. on the other happenether hand, basic education who knows science, literature, social studies, history, has a good perspective, can ask good question, understands good information, would be argued they will contribute to the economy or to the state as they are now. >> you have to position logically and critically. >> and again they put it out there and said we want to
6:19 am
look at how we want to implement this. and so on their side, it's just something out there that they are trying to figure out you how, but i do think by saying contribute to virginia's economy makes it sound a little -- >> narrow? >> too narrow i think. >> if there is a disconnect between education and then productive outside of school that's an issue, but i'm not sure this bill get there is to it. >> when we come back, we have a local delegation in cuba, some interesting cases in the general assembly in annapolis.
6:20 am
in the gone eneral assembly bill would impose jail time on adults, parents, who receiver alcohol to their underage children and their friends. is that
6:21 am
throwing parents if jail? >> i think of the parents of the t deceased and you had some at the hearing. and it's hard to argument their point take even if you have a parent in charge and you open your house up to teenagers to come into a party, one, you don't know if any this of them or all of them can legally trick. so unless you are walking around literally carding every child that comes in the door, you have to be a very, very responsible parent to be able to know that this child should or should not be drinking, whether or not you should call a cab for this child to come home. so i think -- and the fact that in this most recent case in particular, this parent had a fi fine. so i think they're saying they were complicit. >> i don't have children, but do i have friends and some say we knur
6:22 am
underage. we know our teenagers will be out there drinking, i'd rather serve them alcohol in the home so i can watch them and control them and not having them driving around. well, that is whole subject in and of itself. but do you then say, well, then everyone who drank has to intend the night, are you monitoring how much you're serving? that -- i'm just saying that is one of the realities out there. parents do that to ensure their kid's safety. >> if you're serious about that, yeah, you have to monitor them, take responsibility for it, drive them somewhere. make sure if they're underage, they don't drink at all. >> drive them home and make sure they don't get in a car and meet another friend somewhere? >> it's a difficult task. you have to remember, this is a general assembly where at least on the house side without
6:23 am
people there who are loath, who have been loath or reluctant to increase the fines on drunk driving. because the chairman of one of the committees, his firm defends people accused of drunk driving. people have said that's a conflict of interest. the maryland general assembly rolls along as it is. so it depends how the senate feels, too. but that's another issue. how strongly do they want to act on it. but you know there has been a movement now for even bartender, people who serve alcohol, if they do the no spot a potential disaster in the making, they could let that be liable. there has been a movement in the law to deal with that. >> and remember, too, what is this front of the assembly is this snow a's law. so things are running parallel in terms of where they want to make the drinking and driving and level of alcohol
6:24 am
from 00.15 to 0.8 in terms of having the interlocking gudevic and local police departments are firmly in support of this saying we need this because the police are at risk for these drunk drivers. >> how are the alcohol and beverage community? because they have a strong lobby. >> they're not too thrilled with this. >> let's head into d.c. what do we think of cuba? all of our people went down cuba. it was kind of fun seeing them there. >> it was nice seeing them there and i think even the mayor says, well, we don't really know yet what we're going to get out of this, but we're here and to her point, she said she was getting feedback to say it's better that you're here now for when things really start rolling that you can see what kind of connections we can make. and i've said this before especially in washington, d.c. if there is any criticism that comes on her side, i think how she can push back, she can say not only are we the on
6:25 am
capital, we are an international city. so we should be tied to whatever is going on internationally. and so i think with her being there and i think county executive made a good point saying we have hotels here, looking in who how we can do business with maybe bringing hotels to cuba. so i think they made a solid argument of the need to be there, but in terms of what will come through that, we don't though. >> and what do they say in their conversations about possible business deals. if you deal with us and we get this product and we engauge in commerce, what are you going to do to help people who are poor, what are you going to do to help human rights down there. what little numbers can they give the people when they rope deals later on down the line. what leverage are we going to use back against cuba to be sure they're acting properly in their country if they want to us sell their products. >> and the bowser says we're
6:26 am
president. the president is really following our lead. but i think locally you'll still get into issues that we probably don't have time to in terms of human rights. >> i think we have to remember the europeans have been in cuba for 50 year. they have their resorts and beach fronts. so we really are behind. >> and that's what we're looking at, seeing that maybe we need to get in on this. >> and our point has been if we put pressure on them maybe they will change. they haven't chapgd. so now we're going a different way. >> metro had a tough week. a shooting on the green line. two guys arrested, alleged shooter 15 years old. it happened
6:27 am
metro can't get a break. >> unless you have a police officer on every train, i don't know how much we can say metro, you knnoknow, could do with thi. and we say it all the time. in many ways it's about the optics. as you mentioned, metro saying we can't catch a break. so when you have a shooting, the public says this is why i don't get on the metro. a person fighting to keep her purse, 61 years old, and people are fearful. >> the chair says things are getting better, so we have to see. >> and shooter was initially reported as being 15. i was just told by my producer he is 16 years old. still hot gonot good. >> and tried as an adult. >> thank you for joining us on reporter's notebook. have a great weekend.
