8:48 am
only made 64 yesterday with the showers and clouds. could touch 80 degrees tomorrow. and likely going to be 80 degrees or higher every day this coming week. that will make it the warmest week since labor day of last year. it's been a long time since we've had five 80-degree days in a row. but it could do it this week. had some great pictures. i've been mentioning the fog. there's the fog hanging down over the shenandoah valley this morning. fog is burning off quickly now. clearing sky right now, 54 degrees at reagan national airport. winds out of the south at 5. what to expect this weekend? another cool morning coming up tomorrow. but both today and tomorrow afternoon will be nice and mild. and 99% rain free. i'd tell you if it was 100%. it's just a 99% dry weekend. temperatures now 61 leesburg and winchester. still a cooler mid-40s where the
8:49 am
fog has beenoff. if you're going out to enjoy the afternoon today, temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s for most of the afternoon. and if you're going out to dinner and a movie tonight, mild and dry. temperatures near 70 at sundown. and mid-60s earlier this evening. there goes the last of the rain showers draining out of southern parts of virginia. and high pressure is building in. no rain for us really on an organized scale today. and look how quiet it is all over the eastern u.s. here's future weather. here's the reason there's the slightest chance for a shower in southern maryland today. by and large, you can see most of us remain dry overnight tonight and into early tomorrow. you can actually wash the car. mainly dry weather ahead. next organized chance for rain looks to be appearing on wednesday. here's future weather through the day tomorrow. but even there, those are widely scattered hit and miss showers. that is just about all you got

airing this morning at 10:00 a.m. 8:50 now. one website booted a group trying to raise funds for the charged baltimore officers. >> yeah. why go fund me doesn't want the group using their site. a news4 consumer watch takes a closer look at the "s" word in that word "sale." what we found

8:54 am
welcome back. today you can head to northern virginia for the manassas regional air show. very cool. the open house starts at 10:00 this morning. the marine corps osprey landed yesterday in advance of the event. you can see dozens of aircraft and other displays that feature several aerobatic performers. >> so we're looking to have the younger folks come out here and learn about aviation see the aircraft and hopefully have an interest in aviation and make a career out of it. >> there will also be food vendors and free shuttle buses there. designated parking areas are there. donations will be accepted to benefit three local charities. >> they're going to have nice blue skies for that. >> it's great. sale prices. we see them all the time and we assume they're deep discounts for a limited amount of time. but what if something's always offered at a sale price? >> is it really a sale? >> that's the question. >> erika gonzalez tells us why jumping at the word sale may not really be what you think it is.
8:55 am
>> reporter: sarah sheldon loves a good bargain. >> there are certain stores if i see a sale i always go to. >> reporter: and she wants the sale to be big, huge. >> anything under 40% is not really worth my time. >> reporter: but what if you could get the same 40% off deal four nine months later? is it really a sale? nonprofit decided to find out. it tracked the prices of dozens of products at eight national chains once a week for 44 weeks. the nonprofit found sears, macy's and kohl's had at least half the items checkbook priced on sale most of the time. look at this mixer and this redlienre recline recliner. both on sale 44 weeks out of 44 weeks. >> the worst example of this was sears. sears for almost all the items we checked, the items were more often than not always on sale. >> reporter: and some of the discounts appeared steep. >> we'd have an item that the regular price was listed at
8:56 am
$1200 and would be on sale for $800. week after week after week after week. 40% markdown every week. >> reporter: so what makes a sale really a sale? turns out, there's no legal standard for how to determine a sale price. though a permanent sale made by an unfair or deceptive practice in some states including d.c. maryland and virginia. >> is it illegal for something to be on sale all the time? >> well it's for sure dishonest. >> reporter: we asked sears, macy's and kohl's to respond to the research. sears tells us its pricing is not misleading or deceptive. quote, we provide discounts to our members and customers in a number of different legally compliant ways. it is unfortunate that did not appear to take these into account before making assumptions. macy's said pricing cadence varies for each item based on
8:57 am
the nature of s<y and other things. the items on the list were not monitored every day. macy's promotes sales by day, not by week. macy's says it strives to comply with all rules and regulations and kohl's did not respond. how do you know if you're getting a good deal? >> never assume a sale price a s a good price. >> reporter: and to help in shopping -- >> ask a salesperson to hold that item for you for another week or another month. >> reporter: while you check the competition for a lower price, one thing is clear. once you know you're getting a deal go for it. >> i feel like there's always sales. >> reporter: that's a good thing for you. >> yeah. it's great. >> consumer reporter eric is a gon -- erika gonzalez there. let's take a live look outside st. mary's hospital in london. kate middleton delivered a baby girl this morning. we have a live report from the celebrations coming up next. also right now the search is

9:01 am
check on our forecast. >> that's right. chuck bell standing by with a pretty nice looking forecast. >> it's a beautiful morning out here on the front lawn. you probably can't see it but there's quite the air show going on right over my head. we've got a couple of really mad blue jays out here and they're trying to chase the crows away. a whole lot of squawking going on here on the front lawn this morning. it's a nice day everywhere. here's how it looks from vantage points around town. this is looking into prince george's county. a beautiful morning there. full sunshine. there's the view looking southbound over downtown washington and the potomac. and dulles international airport. after a little bit of fog early this morning, now that's all gone. it's a beautiful morning out there at dulles. temperatures now 55 at manassas 55 in washington. already low 60s in the shenandoah valley where it's apple blossom festival time. up into the low and mid-70s. plenty of sunshine today going out to the apple blossom festival and enjoy that.

9:03 am
birth of prince george. prince william drove kate to the hospital very early this morning about 6:00 in the morning london time. about two and a half hours later, a prince success was born. prince william said to be at kate's side when the baby was born. and kensington palace tweeted out the news. the fans here roared out an approval and sang and danced and gave the hip hip hoorays. the tweets saying the healthy girl weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces and was born at 8:34 local time. london is already celebrating. the city will be lit up in pink tonight. there's a supersized flag flying over buckingham flag in celebration. and that very traditional easel with the framed announcement the paper proclamation of the baby's birth is already placed outside buckingham palace. crowds of tourists filing by to get a glimpse. george was born in the afternoon and the parents and george
9:04 am
stayed here overnight. on day two they came out, talked to the media, posed for pictures and then drove home. on day three, we learned george's name. now, because this birth happened so quickly and so early in the day, there's speculation we may actually see prince william, the duchess kate and this new princess as early as this afternoon. but that is purely speculation. no official word yesterday from the palace. >> all right. >> we'll be watching. >> yep. kelly cobiella for us in london telling us how the great kate wait is over. >> the great kate wait. i like that. very good. >> thanks kelly. prince george's county police trying to figure out how a boy inside a car was cut. it happened just before 6:00 p.m. last night at the addison plaza shopping center in capitol heights. the boy and a young relative were in the car when he was hurt.
