>> and i'm tony perkins. temperatures are. >> let's get to gwen tolbart for the latest on the forecast. gwen? >> you are it is going to be a cold news tonight. we are going to see the temperatures rise before the weekend is over. but in the meeven time let's look at the highs for today because we were actually some 8-11 degrees cooler than the seasonal average as we hit 40 degrees at reagan national airport today, 38 at dulles and only 40 at bwi thurgood marshall. 28 at hagerstown and at martinst baltimore. we've been dealing with gusty winds today that's finally changing as those winds start to diminish and we now have winds that are anywhere from about 6 to 12 miles per hour. but a far cry from the 30 mile per hour gusts plus that we had earlier today. but we still have some wind chills. so this is what it feels like
11:02 pm
when you factor in the winds as well as the temperature. feels like it's only 25 at dc right now, 20 at gaithersburg and only 19 degrees at hagerstowns. the jet stream dipping to the south and allowing that cold, chilly air to stay in place and we're going to feel that tonight and you'll feel it first thing as well. saturday is not going to be the warmest day of the weekend but things will change by the time we get to sunday. a few clouds, cold, winds from the northeast 5-15 miles per hour. but then we're going to talk a warm-up and it's going to feel a little bit like spring before it chills back down once again. i'm going to have all those details in that all-important 7-day forecast in just a while. >> a former dc police officer will spend the next 18 years in prison for crimes he committed against teenaged girls. darrell best was arrested in 2015 while he was still an officer. he eventually pleaded guilty
11:03 pm
to abusing one girl at police headquarters and another girl inside of the church. he also pleaded guilty to a child porn charge. the plea agreement came with the 18-year sentence. >> in montgomery county a man was sentenced to three years in prison for hitting and jirg a police officer while driving drunk. back in october he was driiftion with a suspended license when he hit an officer in germantown. was driving with a cold beer in his pocket, had dollar bills with cocaine on them and a scale in his front seat. fortunately the officer was able to jump out the way and was only hit with the mirror. >> you hit me with your car and you didn't stop. i had to chase you down. you almost killed me. >> if you're a drunk driver and you struck a police officer, this case shows you how judges in this county and how
11:04 pm
police department and the prosecutor's office in this county take a serious stand against that. >> saunders was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison for dui and possession of cocaine. >> a masked gunman will be spenting some serious time behind bars. he's convicted of robbing several convenience stores in maryland. lauren demarco has that story tonight. >> reporter: prosecutors say ricardo brooks was targeting stores overnight, threatening the clerks. in one case alone he made off with about $1,000 cash. he was arrested after being pulled over by some observant officers in howard county and the 29-year-old has been sentenced to a total of 36 years behind bars. >> i mean, the judge said it in court. he said these are hard-working people that are working overnight, maybe their second or third job to make ends meet. meanwhile this suspect, this defendant is sticking a gun in their face and trying to get money and items. >> repor
11:05 pm
charged with terrorizing overnight cashiers at at least nine convenience stores in a three-week span in last august and september. surveillance videos from 24 hours cvs shows him walk in overnight. his face covered with a sky mafrk or bandana. he threatens clerks with a gun, in each case grabs cash, shoves it into a bag and making off with the money and packs of newport cigarettes. you can see one employee tried to alert coworkers to called 911. >> people were scared out of their wits. you can see in the surveillance video that they rushed to lock the door behind the defendant as he's leaving those stores because they don't want to have him come back and terrorize them some more. >> reporter: brooks was convicted in three of the armed robberies in montgomery county and one in howard county. police pulled him over for a routine traffic stop after that
11:06 pm
incident and could tell something was wrong. the stolen cash and cigarettes were apparently sitting on the passenger seat. officials say the gun brooks used was actually a pellet gun. but with consukttive sentences of 10 and 26 years, the judges clearly took the threat he posed seriously. >> there's a printed warning on the side of the gun that says this is not a toy. can cause severe bodily injury and/or death. when someone is sticking you up with a gun, you don't really think about is this real, is it not. >> reporter: again, brooks was sentenced to a total of 36 years. because he these are considered violent crimes, he won't be eligible for parole until half of his time is served. so after 10 years in howard county, he'll have to do at least eight in montgomery county. >> all right, lauren. thank you very much. the stalemate over an iphone cont
11:07 pm
investigators believe information could be locked away on the password protected iphone. the tech giant asked the court to vacate the order citing future users' privacy. the white house has this to say. >> we're talking about a phone that was owned, not by the terrorist, but by the local government. the need to extract as much information as possible, to learn as much as we can about that incident, is something that our law enforcement officials have concluded is a priority. >> other tech giants including facebook, microsoft, twitter, and google say they plan to file brefs in support of apple's right to refuse. >> still ahead tonight at 11:00, new jersey governor chris christie says donald trump is the best choice for president. the surprise endorsement came today. we're going to tell you what it means for the party coming up next at 11. >> plus mark zuckerberg is

>> i've gotten to know all the people on that stage, and there is no one who is better prepared to provide america with the strong leadership that it needs, both at home and around the world, than donald trump. >> there you go. the endorsement that no one expected to hear today. chris christie joining donald trump on a stage in fort worth, texas in supporting his bid for the white house. sarah simmons joins us now. this has a lot of people buzzing. >> yeah, it certainly does. political strategists will tell you it's starting to become very apparent that donald trump could be the gop nominee for president. so others are starting to throw their support behind him. this is the first
11:12 pm
for donald trump from a sitting governor and a former rival. it comes at a good time for trump after facing numerous attacks from marco rubio during last night's debate. >> america is tired of being treated second class around the world. we need a first-class president and we're going to have it in donald trump [ cheers ] >> reporter: those are the words no one expected to hear come from former presidential candidate chris christie a few weeks ago. republican political strategist jack birkman sees what this does for donald trump. >> really surprised. i would have thought he would go for rubio. that's his natural ideological home. but this is one more sign that trump is probably the nominee. here you have a big player within the party, a northeast republican wants to go to trump. >> reporter: he says it's also an indication that christie is hunting for a possible cabinet position. >> i do think christie would have a good shot at the cabinet, probably make a good treasury
11:13 pm
secretary, make a good commerce secretary. might even make a defense secretary. i think they can use him in a lot of ways. >> reporter: during last night's debate, rubio hit at trump's business record, history of hiring illegal workers and vague policy position. so far the hits don't seem to be doing much damage to the donald. but if he becomes a nominee, he has an entirely different battle ahead. >> i think it's highly unlikely a republican will win the election. a democrat only has to win 30 or 40 votes. if you see where a republican has to go it's very difficult. the odds are betting on hillary clinton being the next president and sadly i think she will. >> time is running out for the remain gop candidates to make an effective case against trump. super tuesday is next week and tomorrow the voters go to the polls in the south carolina democratic primary. developing just in to our news room right now, yoko

11:15 pm
and we've dpot some pleasant weekend weather coming our way. gwen, we've seen a little bit of everything for the past couple of days. >> all that on the weather buffet. but the best is yet to come. >> is there dessert on that buffet. >> i always make sure there's dessert. so let's serve it up for you. we had some strong winds today, they finally have diminished somewhat across the area and that's at least some good news. not quite as gusty so you don't have to hang on to your hat so much. those winds are lightened up and that helps as well with the wind chills although we have seen just a few wind chills out there. it's still a limit bit on the nippy side. the weekend is starting on a very, very chilly note. and that is because we've got the jet stream well to the south of us. and that jet stream is allowing all of that colder air to just come in and settle in across the area and it's going to be that way later on in the week as well. we've got a warm-up on the way d

11:17 pm
going to be into the 140s for our daytime highs. sunday it all changes. this is going to move its way out. opening the door for a nice southerly flow. 60s with plenty of sunshine on sunday. 40 degrees on saturday, 60s on sunday and those 60s at least stick around for a bit. so 30 degrees for tonight, a few clouds, the winds improving. and as we take a look at our 7-day forecast, take a look. things aren't so bad at all. we have the 60s hanging around right straight through until we get to about wednesday and that's where we're going to keep an eye on this day. because we've got some changes coming. temperatures will will be into the 60s. so we could see maybe even a little bit more winter weather by the end of the week. take a look at the end of the week. we're back to the 40s all over again. so enjoy this little spring break while you can, because once again, it's a reality check that winter is still around. let's check in now with
