morning and then temperatures will begin to bump up a bit. now we look at what's going on, we're clear for now. but, yes, we have some wet weather back off across the middle of the nation and that's making its way off to the east with that we will have some showers in here as we head into tomorrow evening. there's the cold front. it's on the move. we still have high pressure in control of the weather for today. but we will begin to see a few more clouds trying to trickle in here. still going to be aeneas day on tap and you definitely need to open joy it because that cold front is knocking on our door. and we're going to answer it to some showers as we go into the evening time frame tomorrow. but we take you to the tropics and this is what we're looking at. we have tropical storm nadine as of now. those winds sustained at about 70 miles an hour. we need 74-mile an hour winds to become a hurricane. and it is moving to the northwest at about 14 miles an hour. so that is a very quick forward pace. but the good news is, is that pace is staying away from us as we go through the next several days, we will not be impacted
whatsoever by tropical storm nadine. we look at future friend and follow this carefully because this shows you our chances for the showers to work their in here as we head into tomorrow. along the eastern shore a few showers around 5:00, but then there's that cold front back to the west and it looks like it kind of fizzes out before it gets here, but still going to keep the chance in for hours maybe north and west of town. this is what the forecast looks like into lunchtime today hour by hour. 77 degrees and by 3:00, we'll be right around 82. it's going to be nice and warm and seven day forecast looks like this. we will be seeing plenty of sunshine especially as we go into sunday but we will dry out nicely for saturday. and it's going to be a nice day for the o's to win again. let's get a check now of the abc2 timesaver traffic with lauren cook. good morning. good morning lynette. well, pretty cool that the orioles and the ravens are both in first place. >> love it. >> awesome. hopefully they can keep it up and beat the rays again this afternoon. a live look here at route 50 at st. margaret's you'll notice some delays in the area.
some police activity that's blocking one westbound lane at the bay bridge. so definitely keep that in mind. 97 though will be nice and clear from 50 all the way up to 695. and here's a live look at the topside of the beltway and towson at delaney valley road. everything up to speed. you're looking at an 11 minute ride so no delays right now on the outer loop from 95 up to 83. i wish i could say the same for the west side but that's not the case. traffic really starting to pick up here. 13 minutes altogether to travel the outer loop from 795 down towards 95. but the fort mchenry tunnel, that will be in good shape just eight minutes northbound from the beltway all the way to the toll plaza. that's a look at ur abc2 timesaver traffic. megan over to you. all right parents you know sometimes you have to hurry in the morning to drop the kids off and get to work. but you may be surprised to fiend out what one woman did to make sure that she was on time. she drove on the sidewalk to avoid waiting for a school bus. look at that. that all apptured on cell phone
camera. the woman didn't want to talk to reporters but her mother did. she was riding in the car at the time and she says the bus they passed stopped to pick up disabled children on the street. >> the bus for some reason takes a large amount of time talking to the parent every day but he takes forever. while he's doing all that, we're waiting trying to get through. now this morning she was late she was trying to get her daughter to school. the reason for going around and going on the sidewalk was to give the bus plenty of room. >> the driver was cited for not stopping for a school bus. all right, take a look at this check this out. it looks like something from a sci-fi movie. pretty cool. newly released video from the department of defense shows a robotic mule going for a hike. it's designed to climb really rough terrain without initials. this prototype -- any wheels. this prototype has better climbing ate built than earlier -- aid built than earlier mod -- ability than earlier models. this morning we have some
