>> we have had rain move through the city, and there is scattered rain in the area. let's look at our live h.d. doppler radar and give you an overview of what's going on just to help you focus on this map, here's baltimore itself. no rain going on right now. up in cecil county there is shower and thunderstorm activity. the thunder and lightning is in the northern part of cecil county north of 95. most of it is up in pennsylvania at this point. we also have some shower activity in northern baltimore county at this point. there is no lightning indicated right now there, but it might start developing because that cell is becoming more intense, and the strongest storm is anywhere nearby, it is out to our west, west of winchester and hagerstown. a line of showers and thunderstorms moving to the northeast. so you can see stuff peppered around this morning, but later we could see strong storms. here in the city, it is dry. mostly cloudy skies.
71 at the airport. 74 at the inner harbor. humidity up, barometer down, and at the moment, the winds are calm. once again, a very tropical air mass. humidity is up. 72 salisbury. annapolis 77. dulles ampte 70. in the district, 72 at national. hagerstown 76. york checks in with 70. there is a stationary front or a boundary running right along the bay up through maryland. this is part of the trigger this morning for that storm activity. also it is along some of this more tropical moisture to sloo slip into the area. to complicate the situation, we have a front coming into the west. so the front coming in, the jet stream associated with that, the humid and tropical air coming up from the south. all of that is a again that we could see the kind of situation again on friday. and friday produced severe thunderstorms in a couple cases
in frederick and carroll counties and also montgomery counties from a tornado activity. so today mostly cloudy skies. thunderstorms likely. 80 to 87 the temperature range. how close we get to 87 which is a typical high depends on how much sun can bleed through the clouds when it's not raining. the key here is thunderstorms are likely. winds become less at 5 to 10 miles an hour. because of a threat of heavy downpours of rain, we have a flood watch in effect in all these green counties. baltimore county and city. crarle. -- carroll. also out in pennsylvania, like in york county and adams county up to the north. here's our insta-weather futurecast. shows the rain chances increasing. a line of storms moving through the area this afternoon and this evening. tonight we dry out and humidity goes down a little bit. rain threat drops a little bit. looks like a relatively dry day. a chance for a rain-free

it is humid yesterday, but it is more so this morning, and it will continue that way today. 71 at the airport. 74 at the inner harbor. these are the morning lows so far, and i think that's about where they are going to sit. when you start out in the 70's, it is going to be a really muggy day. thank goodness we won't see that much sunshine. the humidity is up, the barometer is down, and if there is a predominant breeze today it will be from the south pumping in all that moisture. yesterday it only made it into the mid 80's for highs. we could call it partly cloudy. the airport and inner harbor made it to 85. even though there was in excess of 3 inches of rain, it was not long lived. those were the only areas. that cluster from the city southward then up in cecil county. everybody had a dry but humid day yesterday. this morning again starting out in the 70's.

thunderstorms might be stronger, but in general, the one-foot chop on the open waters of the bay. thunderstorms move through, and then we dry out. the rain chance goes down. we have another rain chance coming in late tuesday and into wednesday. here's the seven-day forecast. 84 today. temperature goes up a bit monday and tuesday because we'll see more sun. and then a few isolated showers possibly wednesday. so today is the highest threat for rain. we've taken a bit of a hit on wednesday, and rain chances go up a bit next saturday as well. >> when thunder roars, go in doors. that's the message in -- from the new program in howard county that warns people about the real danger of lightning. for the first time in the country howard county has teamed up with a national weather service with a new campaign called "when thunder roars, go in doors." >> 8990% of the time, thunder

that cluster will be moving up into pennsylvania. it will be in adams and york counties. you see that rain in west virginia? that's just a sign of the moisture that's drifting in this direction. a front is coming our way. the air is much more humid. today rain chances are way, way up. let's look outside right now. here in town, it looks fine. 71 at the airport. 74 at the inner harbor. humidity is up, the and the barometer is down. if we have a breeze today, it will be a more southerly breeze. it is 76 at annapolis. 74 downtown. hagerstown is 74. again, right now they have thunderstorms between frederick and hagerstown in progress. here's the culprit. there is this stalled front
reaching out over the bay and then complicating the issue, a weak cold front approaching from the midwest. here's a jet stream inrolved here. the difference in the tropical moisture could combine for sploseyiffer -- explosive weather this afternoon. earlier that resulted in weak tornadoes outside baltimore. new england, the chesapeake bay region and into the coastal areas rains. primary theat in our area -- threat in our area, a tornado or two. that's not the biggest part of the threat, but it is possible. a chance for thunderstorms. winds and thunderstorms are a chance. we will probably fall short of 87, but we'll be in that range
somewhere. there is, starting at 2 clock, a flash flood watch in effect. that's because of the heavy rain potential in our area. and here's that rain chance moving through this afternoon and this evening. then it will dry out. it becomes minimal. then tuesday also looks minimal. but by tuesday into wednesday, the next system comes in so the rain chances go up. ocean city's forecast, pretty good. monday things start to dry out. highs will be in the 80's today and tomorrow. here is our insta-weather plus forecast. again today, the highest chance of rain of the next seven days. then the rain chances go down on monday and tuesday. up a bit on wednesday, and then again on saturday. >> whether you are flying or driving, you want to bring along a few toys to keep your kids busy. >> first, a medical alert as we
>> in this morning's "medical alert" the swine flu vaccine will not be available before kids go back to school. the centers for disease control decided who will get that vaccine first when it becomes available. >> with limited h1n1 vaccine available this fall, the c.d.c. has those targeted who get to go to the front of the line -- pregnant women, care gavers for
infants under six months, and elderly people at high risk for complications. all groups affected more severely than the general population. >> they are looking at those groups where the virus is causing the most damage. the government hopes the first doses are available for those groups by october. the doctors recognize the fact the recommendations play have to be refined as they see how much vaccine can actually be manufactured by then. >> everybody has been working day and night. as i like to say, the lights are on in the laboratories at night making this vaccine and valuating it. >> katrina macintosh loost her -- lost her son and daughter, just 19 and 26 this month. >> i never dreamed this would happen. >> one family's heartbreak is a warning to all that the outbreak
continues. even as researchers scramble to get out life-saving vaccine. and h1n1 isn't the only flu threat this year. there is still the regular seasonal vaccine which should be available to everyone and more important to get this year with two flu strains taking aim. wbal-tv 11 news. >> joining us now is howard county's health officer. thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having me. first -- >> first of all, don't freak out, right? >> absolutely not. every year the average flu kills 36,000 americans. mostly people that have other conditions, but as in the case last year here, a 15-year-old who didn't have other conditions.
seasonal flu, the regular flue vaccine will be available in september. we'll have another drive-through flu clinic in howard county for free for our residents. the most important group to get vaccinate thrd are seniors and those who have chronic health conditions, heart disease, lung disease, et cetera. for the h1n1 vaccine, which is also called swine flu, that will become available probably in late october in smallish amounts, so the c.d.c. has set priority groups. the first priority groups are pregnant women, because they have been shown to have more complications from this type of virus, then anyone who takes care of infants, because infants under six months cannot be vaccinated. so that means daycare workers, moms, dads, et cetera. then health care workers, we don't want them terribly sick, and then 5 to 24-year-olds
because young people tend to be most affected by this condition. then 24 to 65-year-olds, and finally 65 and older. this is for h1n1. so it is the reverse of the usual flu season. >> and you are saying that 65 and older you would do them last? >> they are the last because the evidence has shown in the last several months that we've had h1n1 out there that they are the least affected, and part of that may be that there is mild immunity to h1n1 from being exposed to some of the strain 20, 40, 60 years ago. >> not only do you want to make sure the vaccine when it is available, but you want to still get the regular seasonal flu. >> absolutely you want to get the seasonal flu vaccine. that is the seventh largest killer in the states year after year after year. you do not get sick from the flu vaccine. it is proteins, not the actual virus. there is no reason for people
not to get the regular flu vaccine. >> you think you had it? >> i think i had it. i know my daughter had it. it is circulating. 95% of the cases in the baltimore area are h1n1. right now it is not terribly dangerous, but it is important to keep people vaccinated. >> and this business of putting on masks, i mean, parents don't need to go out and buy masks? that's not going to help? >> absolutely not. the simplest thing to do is follow normal hygiene, wash your hands with regular soap and water, and if you are going to cough and sneeze do what my 6-year-old does and cough into the -- into your arm. >> and if you are sick? >> stay home! >> thank you for being here. >> thank you for

dismissed. now there is a ns m indicekent. what is that about? >> it basically sorts out the allegations with regard to evenates, times, places reg gift guards and gifts given mrectly oncuarious trips. >> so in this is developer ronald litchcomb who agreed to cooperate with the prosecution. >> is this based on what he's been telling us? >> presumely. he was charged with bribery and conspirahn, and pursuant to his plea he's obligated to testify. my assumption is ththe to tribute the ns m inforietion to him. >> there wasn't a lot of ns m i6 c13 morietion in there. does that help the defense in some waythis b
>> it does. it gives the defense more insight if they are going to go to trial. >> and this is to delay the trial that was supposed to take place in septepfaer? >> certainly. the new trial gives the mayor the right to rev:00.w additiona discovery. so i doubt the september trial evenate will stand. it will probably take the case into at least december before the -- for the n hit trssol dat >> councilwoman holton had her case dismissed and now there is a new indicekent? >> the case was dismissed with mce.eju the dismissal d helsnnf preclud recharging. it was a disiest misal based on legislative immunity. they were saying the councilwoiencuoted a certain way evenuring meetings ou and yt permitted under the maryland constitution to use a pe malic
official's voting record as evidence in a case. >> there was some conspirahn to get this poll done and get money from jlton jlterakis and holto to pay for this poll. now john paterakis is drawn into i hit >> it must be. the charges against mr. lipscomb is that he financed a $ial0,dg0 ng.oll on behalf of the councilwoman. now we have charges a, per he ãjlgreed to cooperate. there is a clarge against mr. jlterakis. >> what kind of weight d hels tt add to the picture of all of these folks? >> any time a witness is testifying pursuant to a plea deal, ththe that he was initially facing a charge that carried a minimiga f two years, maximiga of 12 years incarceration, that is, bribery. by entering the plea he's
ãjlyou aided the bribee d charg the mandatory minimum two. so he's r jlteyion,ng something value and had incentive to give the state what it needed, would be the defense's argigaent. >> so it comes county to -- comes down to whether he is deemed cremble? >> that's correct. >> what's n hit for each of the? >> next there will be a continuation of discovery in the case. as i saiory there will likely b a rescheduling of the trial dates from september until late novepfaer, early december would be my best guess in baltimore city. at that time, who knows? that's up to the defense lawyers ãjlnd the proseng ptor in the c my best guess is these matters will go to trial. >> and the possibility that we'll see more indictments? >> there is a possaciility. although i think that after a three-year investigation and then the deal with m. n lipscomb,
