area and someone took a bright flashlight and shine it in your eyes for a second. it's hard to maintain the car. over larger distances. >> reporter: when you laser deputies, their recourse is to find out who's responsible, and that's just what they did. deputies tracked down 25-year- old gary beington and his younger brother matthew. why do citizens continue this type of behavior? >> people think it's a toy, and you get the type of person who doesn't understand it and they think it's a toy not realizing how dangerous it is. then you have another type of person who they're irritated by the aircraft noise so they think this is a way to get those people away or that aircraft away from them. >> reporter: the brothers are now free this evening.

we have great photos on our facebook and twitter account. andrea walker always takes great photos. 63 degrees at midnight. 2:00 a.m., 63 degrees as well. humidity has come back a little bit. a this was our high temperature, not even our high temperature. of course we'll had rain chances in. as we head throughout the period of noontime, 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. starts to taper off mid- afternoon. chances from west to east. if you are living inland, chances are that shower and thunderstorm activity could hang in there a bit longer. 61 in st. petersburg. 58 in sarasota. across the country, all these minus numbers if winnipeg, 20s through chicago, cincinnati, detroit, new york city 28 degrees. as you know, the freezing mark
that's all you really need. it's cooler than that above the surface. we'll take that moisture and turn it into cold air. they'll get some serious amounts of snow. look at that, just north of nashville maybe 6 inches of rain, maybe up to a foot as we slide into kentucky, virginia, potentially all the way through charlotte, north carolina. that's washington, d.c. western suburbs could see a couple of feet of snow. this moves into new york as well south of the boston area. you get a good idea in terms of travel if you are headed this way. if you are traveling, do check with your airline or be careful if you're driving. just avoid that area now through saturday. there's that area of low pressure now. a squall line producing tornado watches that go into the florida panhandle.
advisories and winter storm warnings. farther south, things have cleared up. a lot of clouds throughout the day pushing south. we see a bit of a clear patch here. 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. mostly likely around the lunch hour for most of us dealing with rain, wind, and potential areas of severe weather. here's the rpm forecast opinion. the showers approach the area around 10:30. here comes the cold front, and that's around 1:30. as we mentioned from west to east, this movement giving us this severe weather possibility. severe weather can occur very quickly. remain weather aware during this time period. later afternoon, things start to improve. saturday afternoon, partly to mostly cloudy skies.
very cold. possibly clearing later on. 60 degrees, that's our morning forecast. 70 in the afternoon. it will start to cool down later in the day and make for a chilly saturday. 54 for a high. 57 degrees for sunday. a much nicer day, sunshine, chilly, but still nice balance with that sun out. 67 for monday, then temperatures up near normal. tuesday, 71 degrees. rain chances creep back for wednesday with a high of 70 degrees. a rain chance of 40%. i remain weather aware tomorrow morning and it should breeze quickly off to the east. coming up in sports, the tampa bay lightning snap the blackhawks winning streak and keep their own streak going strong. >> yes.
the last time the chicago blackhawks skated off the ice here, they were headed home, one game away from clenching a stanley cup championship. one game. entering tonight's stanley cup final rematch, one game was supposed to serve as a caution. don't put too much emphasis on the results of one game. sometimes one game can make all the difference. the blackhawks hadn't lost an even dozen looking to make it a baker's tonight.
their six-game winning streak. opening minute, ben bishop like a fish out of water and it's 1- 0. the lightning draw even. victor fires, and his defense partner fires it in. when they say the best offense is a good defense, i don't think that's what they mean. speaking of defense, crawford was fantastic tonight. j.t . brown here made 31 saves in all, but he needed 32. a power play goal late in the second, that proves to be the game winner. snapping chicago's 12-game winning streak and extending their own to lucky number seven. >> this might have been our best game all season. we played for 60 minutes. >> coming against a team like this, you know it's going to be an emotional game.
it keeps us going here and it keeps our confidence going. >> it was fun to be in the building. it obviously brought back memories of last year and another 2-1 game. they're a really good team, and we had to play extremely well to beat them. >> we beat a very good opponent who's been red hot lately. it was game 47 and we have to look forward to game 48. >> as good as it feels to knock off the blackhawks, it's important to maintain perspective. cooper said he'd trade tonight any time for what the blackhawks took from them last year. the former lightning, now syracuse coach now suspended indefinitely.
many co-workers are trying to distract me from my job. >> having a little fun. we have to have fun while we can, see, because tomorrow will be stormy, you say. >> i don't think we're looking at the same kind of event we saw this late saturday night, sunday morning. there's always a possibility with this type of setup. our jet stream is 150 knots, and that's extremely fast. we look at this graphic but to get a better idea on the timing of this, that's around 10:30. this is all associated with a cold front. the same one that will dump the snow, we're on the southern side of that. 1:30 there in the afternoon and then behind that, it gets breezy from the west. a few clouds and maybe sprinkles coming along with that.
