5:06 pm
people doing now, they cross that bridge, get to an immigration check point. that point they tell immigration officials that they're cuban, that they'r seeking political a see limb and that's when they get processed. that can take several hours. but waiting on the other side is this gentleman who says he's do you know and has been helping other cubans for quite sometime. >> 180 cuban migrants seen here wording a plain in costa rica and then hours later deboarding a plane in el salvador and now headed to the u.s. border. >> ruiz runs cubans in freedom. an organization that helps them once they arrive on the border. it was in 2014 when he started noticing an increasing amount of cuban migrants crossing. >> a lot of cubans every day. every day and i satisfy we need to help live here. >> cubans first arrived in this town on the mexican side by bus,

it is here at the laredo international bridge where cubans will realize this is the end of their journey. from this point on they're on american soil. >> they cross the border and they see the customs immigration and say, i'm do you c cuban i want asylum. >> sounds easy, but by this time, cubans are exhaust and had many have run out of money, usually extorted by corrupt mexic authorities. he says just six days ago six young cubans crossed and because they had no money they had to give up their cell phones. >> a lot of cubans are so worried about -- >> once they get through that, things get easier. they need 25 cents to get through this check point. people here call bridge number one. then again although u.s. customs they have to say they're cubans seeking political asylum.

5:16 pm
66 degrees as he blows his notices. sorry about that. here's the doppler radar. we are looking as i said some lighter rains moving in toward the lower keys so watching the skies there and then the radar is going to be a lot more active by tomorrow. that southwesterly flow, that is just not going anywhereny time soon. so it keeps us in the clouds and we get the occasional disturbances that roll through and it looks i guess like we've got one rippling through just in time for tonight into tomorrow. therefore thursday dreary and rainy and friday another system makes a run at us. and by 1:00 that one could send a gusty line of rain showers or storms across the area. so the weather will be changeable over the next 24 to 48 hours, but by friday night we should start to dry out and step into the weekend on a decent note. we'll start tomorrow morning around 60 degrees. highs climb toward 73, but clouds and rain in the area may make that
5:17 pm
some spots. by friday still getting milder, even though we are introducing the chance for rainfall as mentioned, we dry out on saturday. high around 80 degrees. the next cold front approaches. that brings rain early sunday and then behind it, mlk day looking mainly dry and cool. so we do have more we restuff -- wintry stuff playingut across our region. >> clay, are you okay. >> it's okay. everyone has to blow their nose sometimes. >> there is a new place to play in south florida. the newly renovated casino is now entertaining high rollers. we're going to show you around the gaming floor at 6:00. >> we have annvestigation over feeding ducks. a broward man goes to court using a stand yr ground defense after he was charged with assault. find out what happened coming up at 5:00 30:00. >> i'm clay ferraro and guess what? we're going to be able to buy a lot of cold medicine coming up soon?

and now local10 sports with clay ferraro. >> we start with some dunes on dan campbell, the former dolphins interim coach has accepted a job as an assistant with the new orleans saints. that according to espn. the dolphins players loved campbell, but that wasn't enough for him to win the full-time job here, so he will rejoin his mentor in new orleans. powerball mania is craze yes than ever. so crazy in fact t tt our local10 sports department actually bought a ticket for the first time. sure, you could let the machine pick your numbers for you, but that's boring, right, so we picked our own numbers with some south florida sports favorites. the first number, number three. this one was the one.
5:21 pm
number three, dwyane wade, he's helped lead the heat to three nba championships too. >> the next number, five. this is for the number of championships in football. 1983, 87, nine and 91. of course the 2001 title capped off by this thrashing of nebraska in the rose bowl. the third number is 12 in honor of the rtly sunny recent 12 game winning streak. yes it ended on monday night, but this was a lot of fun and got south florida buzzing about the cats for a first time in a long time. hopefully a lot more to come. the first number dan morino and maybe the most amazing part of his career is that he still holds nfl records, including the most games showing for 400 or more yards. crazy considering how much more pass happy the league is today, compared to when number 13 played. and our fifth number, 27, in honor of the heat's 27 game winning streak in 2013. this streak became news again this season when the warriors went on
5:22 pm
still the warriors fell short losing in their 25th game and remember that heat team went on to win a title as well. and our powerball number, 17, for the greatest accomplishment in south florida sports history, the 72 dolphins perfect 17-0 season. the fins are the only undefeated super bowl champs. the very definition of power. here's a look at t ticket. yes, this is the actual ticket that i have got in my hand. three, five, 12, 13, 27, and the powerball number right there, you see it, is 17. guys, we know we left out the marlins and there was a reason for that. if we do win the $1.5 billion minus taxes and all that we are seriously thinking of pooling the money together and buying the miami marlins. >> we want to be included, yes. >> i like that idea. >> i do too. >> maybe run a a little bit better. >> numbers with a purpose here. all right. good luck, clay.

5:40 pm
key west, so this is the story as we head for overnight into tomorrow we're going to have some showers in the area. this forecast model showing that into thursday morng and evening even we could have some showers out there and then we won't be done with it even then. we're going to expect another round to move through on friday and between thursday and friday this model is showing that we could accumulate maybe more than 1.5" for miami and kendall, homestead may be topping 2" of rainfall over the next couple days, and fort lauderdale could be soggy as well, so be prepared for some wet weather even as temperatures get a little lder so we're changing things up yet again. i do want to mention that out in the tropics we have our first main stem. it's occurring outside the season. sub tropical storm alex way out in the eastern atlantic, not a threat for us. no worries there. if you're headed to the beaches tomorrow, water temperature around 76 degrees. the rainfall, though, that may spoil some of our plans. taking the boats out, moderate chop on the bays.
