5:37 pm
announcement. two of her children are also battling the disease. christina: joining us is dr. kerri peterson. thanks for being here. steve: you don't think of it running in the family or having multiple generations having it. >> it's not genetic. it's transmitted through a tick bite, only from ticks to human. it's caused by a bacteria and symptoms early on are flu-like symptoms and a rash that looks like a bullseye. you don't always get the rash. important to know. as time goes on, symptoms can cause cardiac problems, neurologic problems and over months, it can cause arthritis. yolanda, who received the power of one award, has been raising awareness for people who have chronic lyme disease. disease syndrome. after you've been treated with
5:38 pm
people, some people go on to have a syndrome where they experience headaches, severe debilitating fatigue and cognitive cognitive dysfunction. christina: she spent about a year looking for why she was feeling the way she was feeling. time. apparently she was diagnosed disease. if you're diagnosed later on, it's more difficult to treat. steve: the sooner you get to it, the better. it can be difficult to pinpoint. christina: is it a simple test if you suspect you might have it of ticks? can you get tested? >> you can. once you have been exposed, it convert. a blood test will show it. christina: let's talk about elephants and cancer. elephants live a long time. even dogs get cancer. elephants have a low rate of getting cancer. how is that? >> which is kind of surprising. the reason being that as we grow
5:39 pm
cells divide and multiply, every time it does is an opportunity for a mistake to cure which cancer. here are these large animals that live a long time. you would expect they'd have a high rate of cancer. they have one of the lowest rates at 4.8 percent. humans have 11 to 25 percent likelihood of developing cancer. the question is why? well, scientists found they had 20 times more copies of a gene called tp-53. it is known as the sort of guardian of the genome. it finds genetic mistakes, attacks them and kills them, preventing cancer. because elephants have such a large number of these copies, they have resistance to developing cancer. very interesting. steve: that could have all sorts of hopeful -- christina: how could it help human beings? >> down the road the hope is we can create a drug that mimicks tp-53 or we can insert the gene
5:40 pm
into precancerous cells. christina: that would be amazing. steve: that could be the break through. that's probably a little off. but encouraging. doctor, we appreciate it. thank you very much. >> let's talk about the weather now. christina: storms. steve: some wet weather. >> some downpours are coming through new york city. we had the first round and there was a break for a short amount of time and now another round is working its way across the tri-state area, specifically right into new york city. let's zoom in on a few locations. the line is defined from new england to new jersey into philadelphia at the moment. if we go into a little bit here, we'll see we have the heaviest downpours along the north shore of long island, over towards glenn cove. this is where i'm finding downpours. it's going to be a rough ride over the next 30 to 60 minutes. this is moving eastward. i anticipate more problems
5:41 pm
further into the commute. let's move further westward. we have heavy rainfall moving into great neck. that moves into new york city where we're getting major downpours from battery park city towards the bronx. that extends over the river into fort lee and along the hudson river area around hoboken and union city, edgewater. you're seeing heavy rain and lightning strikes. if we move further south, across the turnpike and towards the garden state parkway, we're seeing heavy rainfall. it will be a rough commute home along the turnpike from linden to perth amboy and new brunswick. this will last 30 to 60 minutes as things are racing to the east. as we look farther to the west, we have another cell moving across central parts of new jersey. that will be heading eastward and affecting areas like atlantic highlands, red bank, probably in another 30 to 60 minutes or so. severe thunderstorm watch continues for the area until 8:00 tonight.
5:42 pm
for anything to be sparking up, a lot of the severe storms are further to the southwest like around philadelphia. i would watch more likely in areas south of 195 or across central and southern portions of new jersey. that's where we'll see the highest risks of severe thunderstorms popping up. temperatures are dropping as the rain moves through. we're in the 60s in central park as well as across long island. 70 in bridgeport, but 61 up to monticello and 65 into sussex. winds are gusty with the passage of the front. we're seeing gusts up to 25 miles an hour or higher across the area. those will be diminishing through the overnight. as we move towards the northeast, we can see the line is racing to the east. we have cloudy skies to our west. we'll see clearing through the overnight. this patch of dry weather moving into the great lakes, that's going to be our weather as we go into the weekend. we'll see a drop in temperatures as our highs will be in the 60s with the dip coming in across the ohio valley. the front pushes to the east. after 8:00, we should see everything clearing out from
5:43 pm
west to east. tomorrow, plenty of sunshine for your saturday. it will feel cooler, too, with drier air in place. a slight drop in temperatures there. same thing for sunday. breezy but sunny and nice with temperatures rising into the tonight, the showers and storms that are moving through will be passing to the east. we'll have clearing skies overnight. temperatures will drop into the 40s behind the front north and west of the city. sunshine. it will be breezy and cooler. temperatures just a little cooler, but more average for this time of year. same thing for sunday with plenty of sunshine. it will be breezy with a high of 69. next week, temperatures rise back into the 70s for monday for a nice start to the week. on tuesday, we'll see our next system coming through. this will increase our clouds during the day on tuesday. i think so far, the rain will hold off until thursday -- excuse me -- tuesday afternoon into the evening. and once it pushes through, temperatures drop back into the mid 60s for highs for wednesday and thursday. we're going to see a big drop in numbers next weekend.
5:44 pm
