camera overlooking national harbor. all these areas in gray are under this dense fog advisory. it's been extended now until 1:00 p.m. it's been canceled for virginia. that's just to our north. visibilities in those locations could be as much as a quarter of a mile or less here for another few hours. and then some of that rain arriving later this evening as temperatures will be hovering just in the low 50s this afternoon. the rain coming in maybe around 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. could get heavy at times monday. a look at that hour by hour coming up in just a few minutes. >> all right, tom. thank you very much. we have breaking news out of fair ffax county this morning. mt. vernon police say a teen has been shot. >> kristen wright just arrived at the scene. what have you found out? >> reporter: well, this kid is only 14 years old. police telling us that he is in serious condition but stable. now, he was shot somewhere in the block here
10:01 am
near virginia hills avenue. you might be able to see some of those white markings on the ground. those are from flares because the parkway was shut down all night. here's what we can tell you. police got a call about 1:00 this morning for a shooting. they came out here to the neighborhood and tell us they found this 14-year-old who had been shot. we talked to a couple of neighbors. one neighbor specifically who was just walking by, a lot of neighbors walking by, asking questions, this one says last night at around 1:00 in the morning, he got a strange knock at his door. here is what he said. >> there's a lot of police activity out here. there's about six unmarked squad cars and two suvs that had the road blocked off. seemed to be a little bit of activity. they had one of the yards
10:02 am
off. weren't quite sure what was going on. it's just tragic to hear about. it's definitely concerning. >> reporter: and police tell us they have been going through the neighborhood, talking to people asking a lot of questions. they also made it a point to say they do believe that this was a targeted crime, that the 14-year-old somehow knows the person who shot him, so they're telling us there's no threat to the neighborhood here, no word on any arrests. back to you. >> all right, kristin wright. thank you. we're getting new reaction this morning from president trump on the women's march on washington. >> news 4's david culver is at the live desk with the details. >> this is the second time today the president has tweeted about yesterday's march. within the last hour, this is what he put out. he says, quote, peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. even if i don't always agree, i recognize t
10:03 am
as we said, there are several tweets before that. meanwhile, as far as his agenda today, a busy day ahead of him. the president will oversee the swearing in of some of his high-level staffers. tonight he'll attend a reception for law enforcement and first responders, namely those who supported the inauguration. white house staff members will get an ethics briefing as well today, and they're going to get another briefing on how to handle classified information. that's the latest from the live desk. >> all right, david. thanks so much. women's marches flooded streets around the world. here in d.c., it overwhelmed the metro stations and downtown streets. i shared this video on my twitter page that adam actually shot part of. the long lines that we saw trying to get into the greenbelt station alone. once the demonstrators, which included women and men of all ages, religious and political parties, finally made it to the national mall, they brought
10:04 am
used their vows. simply put, they want to ensure the progression of rights and social equality, they say, and not backtrack. well, it was crowded all over yesterday for sure. d.c.'s homeland security director estimated that the women's march on washington crowd exceeded 500,000 people. not one person was arrested. that's a stark difference from the day before when 217 out of control protesters were arrested. yesterday's march was peaceful, and it went well into the night. >> i took my brother. he's a big trump fan. then he came with me to the women's march. we have different views on things, but we love each other, came together. i went with him yesterday. he came with me today. >> i'm 14. >> you're 14? did you ever imagine you'd be out here in your nation's capital? >> i did not think i ever needed to be, but when the time comes, the time comes. you have to make a difference. >> celeb tis like madonna, alicia keys and well-known activists led the charge on the
10:05 am
you can download our app to look back on what will surely be remembered as a historic day here in washington. and fans of nbc washington on facebook can't stop commenting on this next story. the white house scorned the press for the overall coverage of the size of the inauguration crowd. jackie benson has reaction from people who were there. >> reporter: side-by-side images of the 2009 and 2017 presidential inaugurations. the account then went dark until this tweet that says, we regret the mistaken retweet was posted. >> these attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong. >> reporter: white house communications director sean spicer brought up the issue at a press briefing he claimed many news images had been taken in ways to minimize the size of crowds on the mall during the inauguration.
10:06 am
>> this was the largest audience to ever witness and inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe. >> there are maybe thousands of people that weren't in there to be represented in that photograph. >> reporter: judy gilbert and her family were on the mall for president trump's inauguration. she thinks any gaps in the crowd were not due to a lack of attendees but problems with access. >> i also know that there were hundreds, maybe 2,000 people that weren't allowed in the mall because of security. and they were being blocked by the disrupt group. >> we were here both days. we believe for sure there was more people here today. >> that was jackie benson reporting. this weekend's events are making headlines around the country and world. >> that's right. derrick ward has been taking a look at the front page headlines at the nuseum this morning. >> reporter: good morning. i am indeed not alone. you know, talk about crowds. that event drew record crowds. 500,000 peop
10:07 am
expectation, 3 million worldwide, way past any expectations. here at the nuseum, a lot of folks came to town for this from other places. now it's a good play to come check out the hometown papers. again, record-breaking crowds all over the city, all over the world for that event. of course, the comeback from the trump administration, there was some criticism in the makeup of the crowd, who had leadership positions and things like that, but this was definitely a news making event, not only here in d.c. but all over the world. let's see what this family from canada had to say. >> your new president is very divisive. divisive enough that he inspired massive marches all over the world, not just here in washington. >> we also have three daughters. so i was hopeful here yesterday, seeing all of this, seeing a very peaceful protest. >> rt
10:08 am
live here. a bit of news you might want to know. if you're planning on coming do uh to the knew -- newseum, they have a water pipe bust in there, something they're working on. but as you can see outside, folks are still coming to see what the newspapers had to say about this momentous event. derrick ward, news 4. >> derrick, thank you very much. damage and debris not far from the deanwood metroation. several parked cars appear to have been hit overnight. a trail of debris was left behind. this happened near minnesota avenue and quarrels street, which is near the border between d.c. and prince george's county. we reached out to police and are waiting to hear back about what may have happened. time right now is 10:08. tom is tracking rain and how we can plan for the week ahead.
10:09 am
10:10 am
10:11 am
check it out. a wild police chase ends in a crash and suspects on the run. you can see the suspect's car speed through an intersection here, which then t-bones another car. three people jump out, they flee the scene. police were able to track down all three suspects. the person in the car that was hit was taken to the hospital. their injuries are not known. meanwhile, a helicopter and team of divers swooped in to rescue two men stuck in a washed out creek in arizona. the rescue was all caught on camera here. fire officials say the pair was trying to cross the creek when rushing water spun their car out about 20 feet from the bank. one of the men rescued says it happened so fast they had no time to react. luckily, no one was hurt. high water in northern california also created a dangerous situation. 21 people had to be rescued from flooding after a
10:12 am
san benito county. this is the second time flooding has happened in two weeks in that part of the county. the water is too deep to drive through in some spots. it's expected to get worse. you see a lot of cars stranded out that way. forecasters saying another storm is on the way, and people may be forced to leave their homes again. right now we want to take a live look at storm team 4 radar. rain is here. a round of heavy showers is headed our way. tom is closely tracking the mom, i just saved a lot of money on my car insurance by switching to geico. i should take a closer look at geico... you know, geico can help you save money on your homeowners insurance too? great! geico can help insure our mountain chalet!
10:13 am
hundred and fourteen years. man i thought my arm would be a lot more jacked by now. i'm not even sure this is real wood. there's no butter in this churn. do my tris look okay? take a closer look at geico. great savings. and a whole lot more.
10:14 am
10:15 am
good morning. low, gray clouds hover over the region, producing just a little scattered drizzle. a little bit of mist here and there. most parting are fairly dry here. the main area of rain is well to our south and southwest. the mississippi valley. that's going to be advancing our way, but not until late tonight. late afternoon into the evening hours, maybe just a little bit of light rain. then tomorrow you're going to need an umbrella, raincoat, rain boots, and a poncho. we'll have rain likely throughout just the entire day on monday. could be heavy at times in the morning. the new timing coming up in a few minutes. well, it looks like some in russia are embracing president donald trump. some russians threw some parties to celebrate the inauguration. the u.s. government has accused russia of interfering with the election to help
10:16 am
accusation russia has denied. but some are welcoming the new administration. >> trump is a real american, and of course he will be pro-american, but it doesn't mean he should be anti-russian. >> well, a spokesperson for the russian leader says putin is ready to meet president trump but adds that meeting may take months. well, as expected, "saturday night live" took a jab at the new president last night. >> yeah, while we didn't see alec baldwin's portrayal of the new president, "snl" took a different approach using a fake vladimir putin to hit the crowd size of his inauguration. >> donald, let's talk as friends. you're not off to a great start, man. i thought you'd be better at this. however, i'm glad to see so many people showed up to your inauguration. oh, wait. that's the women's march. here is inauguration. >> at the end of the show, the "snl" cast paid
10:17 am
former president barack obama. they stood in front of a black and white portrait of the president and sang "to sir, with love." >> we're going to get a preview of "meet the press." >> for the first time, to utter a falsehood, why did he do that? it undermines the entire office of the white house press office. >> don't be so overly dramatic about it, chuck. you're saying it's a falsehood. they're giving sean spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that. >> wait a minute. alternative facts? >> whoa. that's counsel already to the president, kellyanne conway, just moments ago on "meet the press" this morning. >> she was being asked about white house press secretary sean spicer's comments about the crowd size of friday's inauguration. joining us now, the moderator of "meet the press," chuck todd. seems like a heated conversation. >> i didn't get heated. i
10:18 am
definitely some deflection and all that stuff. i understand that. i think they feel defensive this morning in general that this happened. i guess the larger question is and what i was trying to get is why. why do this? it seemed you had a lot to get to. this seemed to be an intentional tactic, so why? i think that it's pretty clear to me that the intention is to incite a war with the press. i think they want the foil. i think they this this helps them, that it deepens their connection to their supporters. but it is a tough way to acquire political capital. because it is sort of resistance meets resistance meets resistance and you're in a never-ending loop. this is not a way to get his agenda passed. it's mind boggling. and coming on the heels of an inaugural address that filled with missed opportunities. i think they've had a rough weekend. >> one of the things that was kind of
10:19 am
conference was that the press secretary said, this is what you guys should be writing and covering. that's kind of a bold statement to make. well, you know, you don't get to decide that. >> look, it's a reflection of donald trump's views of the press. he's never viewed it -- i mean, he sort of views if it's a good press if i get good coverage. in new york and the tabloids, it's sort of sport to have fights with the press. it does become tough when you do it from that oval office. it feels small. it felt like why get into, as some people like to call it, turn down a street that ends up being a cul-de-sac and you're just running in circles. >> like a thin skin kind of thing maybe. >> who knows. let's say you're him and you've been told, that's a mistake, and getting in a fighth
10:20 am
getting in a fight with john mccain is a mistake. he comes back and says, i'm president of the united states. >> that's true. >> so the question is, did he learn the wrong lesson? was his victory a victory for him, or it was just an ultra repudiation of the clintons? i think he may misread his victory that it was so much of a repudiation on her that they're still looking for a little more unity than he's wanting to give. >> when we talk about unity, we saw what happened here in washington and across the nation and even across the globe with the marches. yesterday at that news conference, there weren't any questions or responses to the march. this morning we did hear from a top white house adviser. they released a statement. did kellyanne respond or give any type of statement on the behalf of the president? >> no, but we did get a tweet from the president already. he had a much different tone than the initial statement on this. the new tweet says, you know, i may not agree with them, but i love the
10:21 am
celebrates democracy. pitch perfect. maybe a day late. so look, this is, i think, perhaps we'll look at this and say growing pains. we may look back in a hundred days and say missed opportunity. >> yeah, well, i'll be watching the show coming up at 10:30 to see that exchange. that's coming up in about ten minutes. see "meet the press" every sunday right here on news 4 at 10:30. the other thing we want to talk about this morning is the weather. we've had a changeable forecast. you're actually talking about some warm weather this week, tom. >> yeah, certainly #unjanuary still is in effect. >> i like it. >> it really is. here we are no snow, no freezing temperatures. a good day to get out and get in your usual ten-mile run. isn't that right, angie? >> that's right. >> you'll be getting in that run today under a low cloud cover. temperatures into the low to mid-50s during the afternoon. just a little bit of drizzle right now. that should be gone here in another hour or two. then the rain. the steadier rain
10:22 am
sunset, which today is at 5:18. right now nothing on storm team 4 radar. we have this area of rain well to our south and along the southeast coast. much of this is going to pass east of us. the area of rain down in the mississippi valley will be arriving here around 5:00 p.m. or so. off-and-on light rain into the evening hours. after midnight tonight, the rain will start picking up in intensity. from 6:00 a.m. tomorrow through noontime, some moderate to heavy downpours, especially north and west of the metro area through the morning hours. then some passing light to moderate downpours through the metro area, after that through noontime. might get ponding of road water and blustery winds gusting to around 30 miles an hour for the morning commute. likely no flooding. probably only going to get maybe an inch of rain. then the rain may switch over to a little bit of wet snow here in this lavender area. northern shenandoah valley, panhandle of west virginia. a wet monday commute. temperatures upper 40s i
10:23 am
winds. the rain taxpayers off in the afternoon as we hover in the low 50s. wet roads all day long. you'll need an umbrella all day long tomorrow. then finally drying out tuesday afternoon. sunshine returns. highs mid-50s. may make it up to around 60 degrees. talk about unjanuary. on wednesday, lots of sunshine. then it starts getting chilly. january starts to regain its dignity as a winter month. might get subfreezing temperatures friday, saturday, sunday, and monday

10:27 am
foggy, or is the fog lifting? >> the fog is pretty much gone. it stays to the north maybe another hour or two. light rain likely tonight. then some moderate to heavy rain for the morning commute on monday. could have some ponding of water and blustery winds. the winds diminish on monday as does the rain during the afternoon. it all ends on monday night. welcome sunshine after that for the balance of the week. >> all right. thanks, tom. thanks so much for joining us.
