uncertainty. let's talk about what we can expect, first with the winds. you'll see a bunch of blobs. tropical storm force winds 45 miles an hour. the orange 60 miles an hour or so. 10:00 friday night this will start to get windy in the sand hills. that mr. spread into the early morning hours of saturday. winds will be at their strongest early saturday morning. then things will improve as head toward lunchtime. this could change with more shifts. this is not written in stone. we're in a position where we will have to check in on this every six hours. so tomorrow still a hot and humid day, generally dry. here comes the wet weather from her mine. it will be a wet and much cooler day on friday and leftover rain saturday morning before we get to enjoy the rest of our holiday weekend. tomorrow is a hot day.
drying day on saturday. sunday and monday, still parts of our holiday, will be the pick days of the week. so our 3-degree guarantee is 90. today we sky rocketed to 95. we milled it today but we're -- missed it today but we have the guarantee of $2600. look forward to writing a big check to them to your story. >> coming up, new tonight on cbs north carolina governor pat mccrory sitting down with teachers in a round table discussion. >> reporter: every single day more than 3,000 driver also illegally pass a stopped school bus. i want to know why you ran that stopped school bus.
