Samsung stops making Galaxy Note 7s as more phones ignite

Samsung Electronics says it is stopping production of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, a day after it halted global sales of the star-crossed devices. The South Korean company said in a regulatory filing Tuesday that it has made a final decision to stop production for the sake of consumer safety. Samsung is struggling to regain consumer trust after a first round of recalls that prompted criticism both for the faulty devices and for the company's handling of the problem.

Tensions flare as Republicans clash over Trump

Donald Trump's candidacy has long exposed divisions within the Republican Party. But GOP leaders had hoped to prevent an all-out civil war at least until after the election. They appear to be failing. The top Republican in Congress on Monday effectively abandoned Trump, while the head of the Republican National Committee, or RNC, declared he was in full coordination with the embattled presidential nominee - opposing positions that highlight a political party increasingly battling itself as Election Day approaches.

Sunny skies with highs into lower 80s

We’re starting this morning with a little passing high cloud cover. Temperatures are as cool as the mid-40s and as warm as the mid-50s. Despite a mix of sun and clouds early, temperatures will still warm up quickly. That said, it won’t be as hot as it was last week. We should be into the mid-70s by noon with highs into the lower 80s. Skies should be mostly sunny during the afternoon hours.
