you'll see a better chance of more widespread rainfall tomorrow afternoon. some lingering showers possible for saturday with that weekend forecast. 50 saturday afternoon. low 60s sunday and monday. much less wind. look at that morning temperature on sunday. down to 39 degrees. and we could be in the 30s again wednesday morning, with another chance of showers holding off until later next weekend. vai. >> all right, thank you, bill. lots of jobs come with sick days, in some cases, if you don't use them, you lose them. be careful what you do once you call out. a disturbing light on the powers of social media and sick days. also, it is a sports and fashion tradition dating back more than 50 years. just ahead, see one local hopeful. probably has a zero chance of getting into the "sports illustrated" swimsuit issue.
