here is a look at we get in closer to our area like we mentioned earlier. we have a large area of low pressure that is moving into our region allowing us to see thunderstorms develop. we're tracking it here on news 3. getting in closer we've been dry throughout the last few hours. you can see the motion of the storms moving in a northwestern direction. we're seeing the storms pop up over lake mead and starting to move into our area. most of them drying up. i'm expecting a few to pop-up as we get closer to t n hours. you can see in the heart of las vegas we're dry. like i said, the active weather is really all around us. we're going to show you some of the areas seeing the most rain. you can see spreading all the way up to blue diamond along blue diamond road and extending out to mount charleston some of the heaviest showers and biggest thunderstorms happening right now. actually over in san bernardino county. you can see that activity right there. especially if you are going to be driving. you want to be careful if you see the storms start to develop. we talked about some of the
showers in the henderson area. a newly developed cell within the past ten, 15 minutes. you can see along the 15 and also along the 93 right there. so again if you are on the roadways use caution. we could see heavy rainfall from isolated thunderstorms with that activity that is expected to diminish later on this evening. here's a look at the rain totals so far. you can see really very light rain conditions over in summerlin as well as nellis. evh precipitation has been seen. very light rain as i mentioned in the palo verde high school area near buffalo and lake mead. barely a trace of showers reported there and even lighter rain showers at the school. two vantage points you can see from the area we're looking at cloudy skies pretty much wherever you look with temperatures in the upperies in the southeast and that -- upper 80s. that is not a correct temperature. 62. likely 82. a nice range of tires are cross
90 in sunrise and 88 for southeast right now. as those storms roll in we are going to continue tracking the activity. and as we look ahead to the next few hours, a chance of showers will continue diminishing tonight. we are expecting another chance of showers by tomorrow afternoon. temperatures overnight will be very similar compared to last night. lows or highs tomorrow will be near the seasonal normal. waking up temperatures -- no seeing temperatures later tonight in the 80s. 70 for the overnight low. tomorrow, like i chance of seeing those thunderstorms later in the day. as we look ahead to the next few days, a slight chance of showers continuing into thursday. after that winds pick up as we make our way into the weekend and into next week. not only cooling us down a little bit, gosh, a lot of bit. high temperatures in the low 80s by next week. >> marie: okay. we're ready for it. thank you so much. he was once known as the most hated man in the world. >> marie: now someone is
>> dana: that's high schooler darby walker singing with alicia keys. there you see blake putting on the headphones to drown out miley cyrus. didn't work. in the end dar 50 walker chose team miley. you can see miley very excited about that. meanwhile a texas high school dealing with controversy after this student was asked to change his clothes when he dressed as a slave for the school decades day. senior brian said he was forced to change his outfit after showing up just like shredded t-shirt splattered in fake blood carrying cotton. he said the decade he chose was the 16 hundreds and 18 hundreds. that seems like centuries. a school says if a student is dressed inappropriately or if their dress is considered a distraction, they have to change their clothes. so that's exactly what bryan ended up doing. he was once the most famous golfer in the world now tiger
photo. he is the vice captain for the u.s. ryder cup team. he seemed confused but they were taking a picture just the players and not the captains. he went over to the side. people were make fun at his expense but even tiger woods had to laugh about that one. that's what's buzzing today las vegas. we'll send it back to you. >> reed: she's just 26 years old and already she's piloting a commercial airplane. >> marie: look at her go. you will meet the youngest pilot in the world ahead. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. i'd look her right in that fat
ugly face of hers. she's a slob. she ate like a pig. a person who's flat chested is very hard to be a 10. does she have a good body? no. does she have a fat [expletive]? absolutely. do you treat women with respect?
i think my strongest asset, mamaybe by far, is my temperame. i'd like to punch him
in the face, i'll tell you. i would bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell them to go [bleep] themselves. get him out of here! get him out of here! get the hell out of here! priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. jacky rosen: i'm jacky rosen, priorities usa action is responsible and as a computer programmer, i created apps... bebefore they were called "apps" and i learned there's always a smart solution. as president of my synagogue, we found a smart solution to rising energy costs... creating one of the largest solar projects in the state. in congress, i'll work with democrats and republicans to make all of nevada a leader in solar, to improve our schools, and create good jobs.
district attorney steve wolfson: as district attorney, i've prosecuted a lot of violent people. our background check laws have stopped over 5,000 dangerous criminals from buying guns here in nevada. but a loophole makes it easy for those same dangerous people to buy guns.
they get them at gun shows and online from perfect strangers with no background checks, no questions asked. it's a dangerous loophole. closing it will save lives.
. . let's face it at the end
of the day it is about hillary clinton and donald trump. >> reed: right now on "news 3 live at 3:30," one-on-one. democratic vice presidential candidate tim kaine like you have never seen him before. what he has to say about donald trump. >> marie: plus getting help. new rules for applying for financial aid. what you need to be ready for as
