6:13 pm
other metals inside the units, likely sold as scrap, according to ac professionals who say it's quick cash and a quick catch for the criminals when these ac units are not protected. >> because i had actually mentioned to my office manager, they can't continue to leave these units open, because the copper is going to be stolen from these units. you hear about it in the news all the time. sure enough, the copper is gone! everything that's salvageable to sell is gone. reporter: unfortunately, there's no cameras in the rear of the building. that will make catching the criminals tough. but the businesses want them to know this. >> it's a shame that you gotta go around stealing people's air conditioning, because we still use ours. >> i would hate to think that the people who live in this area would do something like this. reporter: and hampton police say they received a similar report around this same time last weekend about five miles away on the 100 block of research drive. two ac units were stolen there. officers say there's no suspects or leads in either case.
6:14 pm
on the lookout. i'm joe fisher, 10 on your side. >> big news on redistricting. today a federal three-judge panel picked a new congressional map for virginia that could be in place for this year's election. it would move african-americans from the third district, represented by bobby scott, and place them in surrounding districts. this is what it looks like now, including parts of hampton roads. last year, the panel concluded legislators illegally packed block voters into that district in 2012 to make adjacent ones safer for republican income bents. however, the panelists' decision could be overturned by virginia republicans who want to preserve the map approved in 2012. >> now, your forecast with meteorologist ashley baylor. >> we made our way into the 50's today. it was actually a pretty decent day overall. we did have mainly cloudy skies out there.
6:15 pm
that's going to remain the case over the next few days. we will be tracking more clouds than sunshine. now, as we head into tomorrow afternoon, there is going to be the possibility for a stray shower or two. not even worth dragging the umbrella around. i would just maybe have a jacket with a hood. we are going to be tracking more rain saturday night. if you're going to be out saturday night, definitely bring the umbrella with you. that rain will last into sunday morning. by sunday afternoon, things will dry up and we'll be talking about highs back in the mid-60's. today we had a high of 52 in newport news. 54 in suffolk. not too bad. now, as we take a look at current temperatures, it's about 50 in both virginia beach and -- we're down to 48 in suffolk 6789 . temperatures not dropping too much. because of two things. not only because we still have quite a bit of cloud cover out there, but we are also still tracking winds out of the north and northeast at about six, up to 12 miles per hour. when we have clouds at night and when we also have winds at night, that helps kind of keep
6:16 pm
almost acts as an insulator. here's our satellite. we did see a couple of spray sprinkles up along the peninsula. just about an hour ago. now things have dried out. again, we're tracking mainly cloudy skies. over the next few days, we're going to see more clouds than sunshine. but clearly, that is not going to affect temperatures. our average high this time of year is 48. but we'll be in the mid-50's tomorrow. upper 50's expected on saturday. around 65 on sunday, so looking great for sunday afternoon. but all good things must come to an end. back in the 40's for monday and tuesday. let's break this down for you. as we go from this evening on into the overnight hours, clearly we're going to keep the clouds locked in place. so temperatures are only expected to drop into the mid-40's by 7:00 tomorrow morning. not a bad start to the day. the kids will not need several layers as they head to the bus stop. friday, we are going to have
6:17 pm
some peeks of blue sky but they will be few and far between. warm front will get close enough that we could actually see a couple of stray showers here in hampton roads. it's note a great chance. as we head into 7:00 saturday morning, once again, more clouds than sunshine. that will remain the case throughout your saturday. but by saturday night, we'll throw another round of rain into the forecast. tomorrow, in northeast north carolina, maybe an isolated shower. not a great chance. we'll top out at about 54 degrees. partial sunshine, a stray shower with a high of 56 in suffolk. about 54 in virginia beach. 55 in portsmouth. more clouds than sun across the peninsula. only winds out of the northeast at about five to 10 per hour. so that will keep temperatures closer to 54 in yorktown. 53 expected in hampton. and 56 up in williamsburg. across the middle peninsula, the
6:18 pm
shore, a high of 53 and about 55 in gloucester. there's our seven-day forecast. partly sunny on saturday. most of the day is going to be dry. as we go into the evening and overnight hours, we are going to be tracking another round of rain. that rain is going to continue on into sunday morning. but by sunday afternoon, things will dry up with a high of 65. we're back into sunshine for monday and tuesday. you'll note that i dropped the chance of any rain on tuesday and wednesday. yesterday, we were tracking the potential for a coastal storm. that is now out of the forecast completely. looks like most of next week is going to be dry. in the meantime, find our latest forecast updates at >> the old doe dominion basketball team looks to end two streaks and things get intense as the redskins get ready for the packers!
6:19 pm
next on the sports wrap. >> the old dominion basketball team has won 32 home games in a row but have not won on the road since february of last year. will the monarchs end that troublesome streak tonight? it won't be easy. i'm bruce. old dominion started the season as one of the favorites to win the conference u.s.a. title. while the mon marks have won 35 home games in a row, they can't seem to put it all together on the road.
6:20 pm
snap that snagging streak at louisiana tech where the 12-2 bulldogs have won 39 games at home. after a disappointing start, including an embarrassing start to charlotte, coach jones is not as concerned with ending louisiana tech's winning streak but getting a breakout conference win for his own team and turning the monarchs' fortunes around. >> more important than ending their winning streak, you know, getting a road win in conference u.s.a. i mean, that's huge. there's some awfully good teams. we've got to try and scrap for any win we can. we've got to see if we can get that one under our belt. >> the monarchs have won their last four games. they hope to make it five in a row tonight down on the bayou. jay gruden, who has had plenty of success coaching as an assistant in nfl playoff games is preparing his first playoff game as a head coach. that will be sunday evening when
6:21 pm
despite green bay's recent history and its future hall of fame quarterback aaron rodgers at the helm, this is a winnable game for washington. gruden admits the intensity picked up at practice today. >> now, the intensity level has picked up today, obviously in practice, and the guys are starting to feel it. but really, when it comes to preparation and getting the team ready physically and mentally to play, not a lot of change goes on. >> while the packers have struggled this season, they still have aaron rodgers, who has shown his frustration in the past few weeks but seems to be in a much better place now, realizing everything can change if he beats the redskins. >> it's tough. but i think we can galvanize the team. when you're going into a hostile environment -- i know we're will follow us there. but those are the fun wins. there's not much better.
6:22 pm
but the feeling you have with a road win is a pretty special feeling that any former player would tell you is at the top of the football mountain. >> can the younger redskins players handle the pressure and adapt to the faster pace of a playoff game? can aaron rodgers break the hearts of redskins fans? we'll find out. kickoff, 4:40 sunday evening, on fox 43. and i'll have the sports of the day, tonight, 15 minutes of it, at 10:45 on the sports wrap and i'll see you guys back at 11:00. >> we'll see you then! >> it's actually going to be a pretty decent weather over the next few days. maybe a stray shower tomorrow afternoon. but heading into the weekend, we're going to be into the upper 50's on saturday. we will still stay in the mid-60's on sunday. we are going to see things dry up on sunday. full sunshine by tuesday next week. we'll be back.
