now. really. hot again tomorrow, but less humid. and then very nice on sunday, pleasantly warm. the humidity will be in check as we go through the weekend. so here's the model projections for rainfall. generally around half an inch. because the track is further north. yesterday these were 1 to 2 inches of rainfall. now the track further north, not a huge deal. so lower temps on the way, 91 tomorrow. 88 on sunday. 81 monday. 79 tuesday. gorgeous on wednesday. 85 and humidity in check through wednesday. 10:00 tonight. look at these temps. these are not heat index readings. they're temps. 83 at 10:00 tonight. then we go through the night, here comes the showers and storms and rain. by 7:00, essentially right on 95. by 7:00 a.m., you're done in leesburg, cull pepper, and

90s on friday once again. now, wusa9 game on sports with frank brought to you by xfinity. we know markelle fultz is a confident player and why not after being selected number one. markelle fultz thinks the 76ers who have been awful for years is immediately a playoff team with him on it. he joins a young team with talent. but it's going to take somebody special to turn around a franchise that's averaged 63 losses the last four years. >> it's excitement really. to a dream as a kid growing up. and now it's come true. and now i'm with these guys. and we have the same goal to turn this organization around. i'm excited. >> it's a wonderful feeling. but i all ready knew it was coming to him. i got two more boys. they're going to do th

thing. >> you're going to get them to the lakers too, how? >> the big baller way. ball control. >> stealing the show at the nba draft last night. he saw his son go number two to the l.a. lakers as he predicted all along. he was the best thing about the otherwise boring nba draft last night. i thought lavar ball was hilarious, entertaining. and that's what the nba is supposed to be. so many people on social media were up in arms about his antics. and stealing his son's spotlight. sure lavar is over the top, comes off borderline crazy at times but that's what makes him so appealing. i'm not going to buy big baller brand gear, the 500-dollar sneakers but i'll pay more attention to the career pa

lonzo because of his dad. coming up at 6:00, big hockey news from the capitals. still ahead, photos of handcuffs kids on the mall went crazy. we talked to the guy who posted them. a bar in denver combining beer and, yes, throwing weaponing, axes. hear why they think it's not that bad of an idea after all.

have you ever said to your buddy, yo, let's go to the bard and get medieval. the latest concept here for a bar in downtown denver is pretty interesting. drink beer and hurl axes at a stump. the owners of the new bar appropriately named the ax room say it's a different way to compete and have fun. don't expect a lot of ladies there in the house. eddie randal asked the obvious question, there's like ten of them. but the obvious question to him that came to mind. >> it's not your everyday sport, unless you're a lumber jack. but peter laylor and steven johnson hope it willbe soon. >> i moved to denver and found a perfect spot for it. it seems like a great activity that fits with the local culture and is fun. >> ax throwing and drinking beer. a combination that's a thing up in canada. >> this is not a new
5:58 pm
environment where you are maybe incorporating having your own beers as well, you know, it's a unique idea that's just starting to spread in the states recently. >> right now they have one lane as it's called but they're adding more. >> six lanes. some back-to-back. >> the pressure is on. >> just like any sport, there's competition. >> competition gets very heated. last group, it was pretty intense. the bachelor won. >> the bachelor and his brother. the best man went to over time to decide who won. >> will peter and steven say there will be rules posted throughout the bar? >> if people get out of control or visibly inebriated that's the end of tear day. >> the cages are designed to stop drinkers with poor aim. >> one of the biggest things we want to stress is safety. that's of highest priority for us. >> they want to introduce customers to the
5:59 pm
>> someone called it adult darts the other day. which i found funny. >> that's cool. as long as there's not a medical marijuana dispensary next door. they expect to have all the lanes built by august. >> how do i go on after that? right now at 6:00, outrage continues after this tweet showing u.s. police handcuffing kids selling water on the national mall. the guy who posted it said police went to far. stephanie spoke to him. >> it was a humiliating posture. they could have done any number of other actions. they could have taken them aside and discussed it with them. they could have not handcuffed them and left them on the ground. >> police say the undercover officers were doing their job. the kids were allegedly selling water on the national mall. that's illegal. >> i
6:00 pm
she told me quote it's not uncommon for officers to handcuff people while the officers investigate and they do that for the officer's safety. >> i think we should look at what you said. it's not uncommon for this to happen. that's the problem. it's not uncommon. this is typical. it's so typical, they don't see it as a problem. but i walk by the same black youth selling water everyday. i'm not unsafe walking by them. certainly the guy with the badge and gun can feel safe as well. >> you posted what you saw on twitter. you since got thousands of retweets. thousands of likes. >> the whole viral phenomenon stuff, yes. it made some noise. that's good. that's the idea that we can do these things in quiet and not see them is all too prevalent. a little noise and discussion. and get this in the public sphere. and get this away from the planned statements and
