10:46 pm
vehicles can be more challenging to control from a distance. the water distorts the transmission of signal and they have to deal with boat traffic, currents and obstacles on the ocean floor. >> communication challenged devices, so they're limited capability -- their limited capability -- above water we want to pick and choose when they pop up to the surface, so they can communicate over air. >> reporter: the navy sees the drones as a cost effective way to extend the reach of its submarine fleet, which has been gradually shrinking in size since the end of the cold war. wisdom martin, fox 5 news. time to talk about the weather. was not a bad day at all. >> if we can talk more about what we had today, then i'm all in. >> i think we can. we shape the newscast, gary. what you want to talk about, we can accommodate. >> i have control the next

10:48 pm
week to see if there will be changes. not extreme cooler air, just temperatures from the upper 80s probably back down into the lower 80s for high temperatures and lower humidity, too. it's looking like at least cooler air is in the offing in the next six, seven days. 81 now. slow to cool. quantico is 77. culpepper, upper 60s and i-81 corridor temperatures in the mid- to upper 60s. hagerstown still at 72. baltimore is 71. i think overnight tonight really, really nice. here in town we'll get down into the lower 70s. out in the suburbs. temperatures in the mid-60s to the upper 60s. winds will be light. very comfortable and a very nice overnight. we have a couple of clouds moving through. not really much. it's not anything to worry about. if you go back out to the west here, you see some rain creeping in our direction. this will fall apart before it gets here. but it is coming off the same
10:49 pm
system that will bring us a chance for showers and some thunderstorms as we start heading into, well, probably late, late monday night we have a possibility of a shower and then maybe getting into early tuesday. but most of the rain will come in tuesday afternoon and tuesday evening. here's futurecast tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. loads of sunshine. couple of clouds tomorrow afternoon. temperatures warming up. this is tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. clouds and a couple of showers to start. it really looks like most of the rain potential comes in later in the day through tuesday night, and we're thinking by wednesday we clear out. will be a few clouds wednesday. will be a little bit cooler, and gradually a little bit less humid. looks like as we get into thursday, that will be a real nice day around here. temperatures tonight, lower 70s. you get out in the suburbs, you start getting more to the upper 60s. tomorrow we're right back up into the upper 80s.
10:50 pm
90degrees in town. a lot like today. again, a little bit warmer. a little bit more humidity. but you probably won't really notice. we start with a lot of sunshine and looks like mostly sunny through the day tomorrow. temperatures again jumping up into the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. no extreme heat this week. up in the lower 90s tuesday in advance of the thunderstorms. cooler for wednesday and thursday and friday. again, next weekend probably lower 80s for highs. we have something we want to share with people. we want to see goodbye to someone who has worked here for a long time. >> charlie carson, he's been one of our engineers. he fixes stuff when we break it. we wanted to shoot pictures of him. >> yeah. he said no. >> he said, no. if you know charlie, that's understandable. today is the last day he's with us. he's been here --

10:52 pm
prostate cancer. the psa tests don't always detect cancer for men in their 40s, but when done early, determines who should be regularly screened and could save lives. >> there's good data that shows that a psa test in everybody, whether you're in your 40s, predicts your lifetime risk of prostate cancer. what it shows is if you're below the population average, your lifetime risk of getting the cancer is under 10%. >> doctors say too many men wait until their 60s and 70s to get the test, which is not as beneficial since early detection speeds up the treatment process. if you could give up an organ for someone, would you? one man traveled thousands of miles to give a kidney to someone he barely knew. deena centifonti introduces us to that man and the person he saved. >> reporter: kidney in cooler,
10:53 pm
