6:13 am
be a stellar pairing. coming up on 6:30 right now. let's head over to tom kierein. a lot of folks talking about yesterday the concern of snow and rain. not too much lingering today. >> those flakes were like the pancake flakes, thissing down yesterday giant flakes, but melting almost as fast as they hit the ground. some of the north and western suburbs had about half an inch. in the mntdountains, anywhere f 2 to 6 inches. right now the rain has exited our region. still in southeastern virginia and lower part of the eastern shore. that's all tracking off to the north and east. and quickly pulling away. temperatures are chilly. all above freezing, so even though where the snow did fall, most of those locations the temperatures are a little above freezing, so we are getting some melting of the snow. right around the metro area, we're in the upper 30
6:14 am
right around the bay. here's what to wear today. rep for a winterlike day this first day of spring. have the umbrella ready during the afternoon. dev definitely long pants because it will be a chilly day. through the day, by:0 10, just few lingering sprinkles. and then the rain will creep closer to washington by 2:00 this afternoon, maybe eastern is you bushesuburbs. light rain gets closer to the metro area by 4:00, 5:00. and then the rain does move in this evening. and maybe some snow showers way out in the mountains. and then colder air brings some snow down jersey, across the delaware bay on to the eastern shore where there could be some brief a accumulations on grassy areas. calvert, st. mary's, northern neck could get a brief accumulation of snow late tonight. and then dawn tomorrow, most of
6:15 am
the day, chilly day. upper 30s, near 4011:00 to 1:00. only the low 40s between 2:00 and 6:00 with showers likely coming through. bus stop tomorrow morning, upper 30s with some sun. afternoon, low 50s and a blustery wind with the sunshine returning. four day forecast near 60 tuesday, low 70s to mid-70s wednesday and thursday. chillier toward the end of the the week. might get a little rain on friday. >> i'm still thinking about those pancake flakes. >> have to let that go. >> we're hungry. >> i like the 70s in the forecast. 6:15, next up reporter's notebook for you. a look at stories affecting our community. >> and we'll be back in 15 minutes. welcome to reporter's notebook. what a week we had. how did did you like your wednesday without metro? we learned a lot about our town and
6:16 am
fit into downtown d.c., didn't we. wow, that was really a shock to the system, wasn't it, when we hear tuesday afternoon, hey, at like 4:30, met row is shutting down at midnight. >> first thing i thought about is that you really have to give the new head of metro credit. that is a gutty call. and that shows real leadership. now, the reality is that people are wondering what took the government so long to decide what are you going to do in terms of the next more than. the mayor said, well, business as usual. and when you think about it, i don't think we did id too badl. of course i did a lot of walking. >> it's good for you. >> that's right. but i will give the new head of metro -- you know, he showed real leadership. >> shows he's all business. he's his own man. >> that's right. >> and i think he looked at this
6:17 am
if we shut it down for a darks it will cost us $2 million. if we don't, you just saw what happened when we he had a small fire, if something else happens, someone sues, it will cost you a lot more. so i would agree with joe, there is a new sheriff in town. i'm in charge, this is what we're going to do. and i think it showed itself because he made a decision quickly and he didn't really consult for too much time with anyone else. i think the mayor said she found out about an hour half before it happened. but i do think what is interesting, you see gerry connolly, congressman out of virginia, he's coming back saying, listen, some heads should roll over the findings here. we find these wires still not coated, not covered. ntsb put out a report a year ago saying these repairs should have been done. why haven't they been done. so as much credit as we give wiedefeld, i think connolly is still holding thei
6:18 am
have been done a year ago. >> the issue is not inconvenience and it's not that people were able to get -- but the issue here is safety. and as connolly said and i've talked to him and the the other members of the local delegation, why are we doing this now when it should have been done in the past year. this electrical wiring needed to be repaired. they discovered it was this great it is repair disrepair. what took us so long. they all say who are we hiring, who are we firing. is there cronyism going on will. and i have heard from my own sources that there is cronyism on that level. that there isn't the supervision and the maintenance that there ought to be. so if they want heads to roll, then there has to be a response to metro. >> the cabinet member fox who testified this week, he said just what you said. there was some culture inside metro and i think he's absolutely right.
6:19 am
in mind is that we've had deaths. you had a fire. and we have cherry blossom season coming up. so can you imagine what we saw on channel 4 this week with the what do they call them, the frayed -- >> the cables, the jumper cables. >> imagine if something would have happened while all these tourists were here for cherry blos oms. >> and you're trapped underneath in a smoky situation like we saw what happened at l'enfant plaza. >> it's not about money as it is about lives. >> money still plays a part. jack evans came out and they put money in front of it saying, listen, we need the money from congress to make these repairs. money that is being held up right now. so he put money out there. >> and an offshoot of this is these ride shares like uber, i think their ride share went up like 70% in that break. so in a
6:20 am
ride sharing. you can see the taxi drivers saying wait a minute, this is something that as an offshoot helps the ride sharing even though i think -- >> money is not a factor in hiring, in firing and work maintenance and work habits. that's not money. but you're right, congress appropriates a certain amount of money, there should be matching funds. and d.c., maryland and virginia have they have been able to figure out on getting comparable matching funds. >> taxi commission, they change their rules. uber went up. and even the bicycles, i mean they even made -- >> but they give you a 24 hour -- you could join for free during wednesday. >> right. i think the other thing, if there was one negative point and it was that we were talking about down when i was around the agent 7 gallery place city center -- >> you said it looked like manhattan. fr
6:21 am
had just come from manhattan the day before. it looked like manhattan. the next time the businesses should get together and stagger time off. so one group gets off at 2:00, one gets off at 4:00. that way you don't have everyone off at 5:00, 5:30. >> next time they shut down metro, is that what you're saying? is wiedefeld the guy to get rid? >> that's the question. he's shown excellence in his own characteristics. spotting a problem, doing something about it, not being afraid to it on probably the busiest travel day of the week. >> something unpopular. >> but it remains to be seen if he can get through whatever that bureaucracy is in metro. if he can get through that. and it will be interesting to see if the members of congress keep prodding him, make sure that he does. >> he did say more needs to be done. but i think what is interesting about this whole issue is that it sort of spreads out what so many other things that are going on
6:22 am
secretary anthony fox. remember, he keeps making the point maryland, virginia and d.c., this oversight group that you need to put together and get it done quickly, he keeps saying i want it done by the end of the year in maryland, virginia. and they say our jen assemblies end in a couple weeks. so this puts more pressure i think on them to find a way to take control of the oversight. >> and when we talk about cronyism and i'm just thinking now, we always look at the staff, we always look at whoever the director is. these guys and ladies who sit on the board, come on. now, they have been sitting up will all this time and it's so easy for them to point fingers to the people below them. but what about their responsibilities as board members? maybe that's where the buck ought to stop is with them. >> okay. we'll so that right there and go to a commercial break. we'll be right back.
6:23 am
6:24 am
welcome back. we had a tragic awful story that every day it just got worse and worse and this is the death of prince george's county police detective jacai colson. after someone -- after michael ford allegedly opened fire on the palmer park headquarters in prince george's county. undercover detective who helped, you know, engage the shooter and then we learned this is why the story just got more and more devastating, that he was killed by friendly fire when one of his officers responding to the chaos of the shooting mistakened him for the shooter. because he was in his
6:25 am
outfit. where are the words. >> it's one of the worst kind of situations that you can have. and shows you often what police are dealing with. you have to have a quick response, you have to react quickly. as you mentioned, in this case the undercover officer was not dressed. did not have a vest on because of that unfortunately. and whether or not his fellow officers even knew who he was because, you know, he was undercover. i will give the police force credit in this sense is that they came out very quickly and said this was friendly fire. you know, it would have been easy to sort of still have the investigation, but to really not sort of get in to that. you could say we're not sure what happened there. so i think it's good at least in this tragic situation that they're being as transparent as they can be early on. >> and a
6:26 am
i almost hate the term friendly fire because i know that the family of detective colson, there is nothing friendly about that. and i was wondering if there is something that is required when you're an undercover officer in order to maintain your anonymity so that you can operate safely and penetrate these groups that you're trying to crack, that maybe you're not -- your rank and file are not supposed to know you so that no one can leak who you are and expose you and expose you to the danger of that exposure. so i'm just wondering -- but i don't know. >> i'm sure in a lessons learned situation, they will go over that kind of thing and coordination. you wonder about that. but it's such a bizarre incident. here are these people on a suicide mission against that, a police station. they were just walking in. they were aiming at declaring war on iit this place sta.
6:27 am
in the room is once again the issue of gun control control. if in fact we're dealing with -- and i don't know if we are -- but whatever the mental state, but if we're dealing with individuals who do have a mental problem, once again, how is it that they got the fwuguns to atk the police department. >> the gun was stolen. >> there you go. see, this is once again an issue that we just honestly have to look at in addition to all the other things. but you're right, you have to give the prince george's county police chief credit. he did not try to cover this up. they came out. they -- and we have to be very careful because it is and ongoing investigation and we need to wait and see what happens. but i think the issue of gun control should be at the top when they look into this. >> but i also think, you know, we've seen this nationwide, but locally we've seen this, you know, tragically in the last couple of weeks.
6:28 am
and whether or not there is this so-called attack on police. we see the video of police dealing with civilians. and now you have many police unions around the nation who are saying we feel like we'ring attacked. and when i talked to this former officer, i said do you feel like for you that it's really open season on police. and more so than in the past. and this officer said, no, i don't think so. i don't think it's any different. >> it isn't. and the statistics -- and this is not just anecdotal. the statistics and reporting -- >> are actually lower. >> absolutely right. shows that. but once again -- here is the other issue. everybody talks about if you've got a fwun gun, it's safety. this is a perfect example, here you have trained policemen who have guns and they ended up shooting one of their opwn. and people say just give me a gun and i'm in a crow
6:29 am
to shoot. >> it's like the fog of war. >> and we don't know the motive yet, the thinking is this is a bizarre incident with unstable people, not a direct assault on police. we don't know that yet. but you're right, police must will be very peerffearful at th point. >> and michael ford, the alleged gun man, he said that he wanted to commit suicide by cop. and his two brothers were videotaping the act as he opened fire on the station. and an ambulance and two cars. he was just firing wildly. and then there is that, you know, suicide by cop. >> he wanted on make himself a martyr, then i somewhat retract what i just said. this is another attempt to get the police. but it's thush because unusual mental instability. >> and the whole thing of social
6:30 am
media and everyone will be is star, have their 15 minutes of fame. all right. so something happy we'll end on in our last minute before cherry blossom festival starts this weekend. peak bloom has changed constantly now. is it going to be this wednesday and thursday? do we believe it? >> they can't really predict. i don't know if we can. my family is ready to go. my daughter has terrible allergies, so she says no. but i think they were -- it was supposed to be about 70 or 80 degrees at this time like two weeks ago. >> just keep the spoke awsnow a. >> that will do it for us. enjoy the cherry blossoms if you see them. have a good one.
6:31 am
at 6:30, we are now six hours into the first day of spring. not feeling like it, though. we're off to a cold blustery and in some parts snowy start. >> you're looking live at radar showing a little blue, a little green this morning. and not one, but two live looks outside for you, a lot of you saw some snow where you live last night, but as you take a look at your window now, there is probably none to be be found. it's 6:31. i'm angie goff. >> and i'm david culver. adam has the morning off. let's get right to tom kyrgios o kyrgios oierein and the first d spring. >> psychologically, i'm already there. it's march 20th. first day of spring. that should lift your spirits. certainly not going to feel
6:32 am
february. we're starting off with quite a chill in the air. get something chilly rain all that area in the moving color, that is rain. southeastern virginia, northern neck, and on the eastern shore. tracking off to the north and east. no more rain in the metro area, no more snow. that has all ended. and we have temperatures that have remained above freezing most locations. in the mid and upper 30s. near 40 fredegrees right arounde bay. so the snow that fell continues to melt. a cold morning. afternoon sprinkles and then evening rain likely much of the region, but wet snow on the eastern shore is possible late afternoon and into the evening hours. we'll take a look at that in the hour by hour timing coming up. happening today, president obama going to be the first u.s. president in nearly 90 years to step foot on cuban soil. the president and his family going to arrive in havana today.

6:43 am
with parptd parents driving them to school. >> reporter: ride sharing services also offer a way to get around or like this group, you can just call your friends. >> even though it's uncomfortable, even though it can be tedious and annoying to have to ask people, it works. >> reporter: for students who are getting a license, many must now pay commercial companies like defensive driving school because fewer public schools are offering driver's ed. as for millie -- >> i feel okay without a driver's license. >> reporter: -- she's this no rush. life is fast enough already even without a license to drive. joe fryer, nbc news, seattle. now to politics. donald trump has been dominating the headlines in decision 2016. >> and that even more true now. but not necessarily for the same reasons. we have "meet the press" moderator chuck todd with us. so this unified strategy to stop trump, we saw romney coming out saying he was going to vote for cruz.
6:44 am
what do you make of the strategy? >> well, there is no -- i mean there is an idea to stop him, but there is no cohesive strategy. that's been the problem. there is no -- will everybody rally ou and kasichstart colluding based on who has the better shot at getting delegates. there is certainly a desire, perhaps even a majority of republicans who would like this. there just doesn't seem to be focus on how to do it. >> romney has come out and said that he doesn't think that anyone will have enough delegates at the end. and that there will be a contested convention. >> and i think it's a little less than 50/50 that we have a contested convention. i think we'll learn a lot on tuesday. it looks like it will be two splits, the two states that are up there with trump winning arizona, probably cruz winning utah. we'll learn a lot in wisconsin rs
6:45 am
