still dry and sunny and bright next chance for showers comes in on sunday but all in all pretty great october forecast. >> that looks really good. >> i think so. >> thanks kate. >> don bell has your sports. >> we're talking about those birds. some people are surprised that sam bradford is throwing interceptions including sam bradford. we'll hear from the eagles quarterback next in sports.
