remember to set your clocks ahead by an hour this weekend. you know, spring forward. daylight saving time begins. there is a bill in california that would ask voters to abolish the practice of changing clocks twice a year. lawmakers in nearly a dozen other states from alaska to florida are debating similar measures. now with your weather to go, here's elizabeth gardener. >> another thing happening this morning, severe weather preparedness week. we talk about different topics all week and today's topic is flooding. it's one of the most deadly weather-type eventst that we have across the country and especially here in north carolina. we have flooding from thunderstorms, from rain showers and from hurricanes in particular. most of the deaths happen when people drive their car into a flooded road. it's not when they're stuck in the house and the water is rising and they can't get out.
die during flooding drive their car into a flooding road. that's why we harp on that all the time. statistics show people don't take it seriously enough. another big risk is walking into floodwater. it can knock you down quickly. moving water have very, very powerful and that's probably the second greatest way people get in trouble. encourage your kids not to play in floodwaters. we don't have anything like that in the forecast, but parts of the south have severe flooding right now. definitely a gray start this morning, we had a pretty sunrise briefly. the clouds are taking over now. you can see across wake county looking to the west, it's very warm, it's breezy, southwest wind alt 13. 65 degrees and it's muggy, too, the dew point at 59. the higher the number, the more moisture there is in the atmosphere.
warm this morning. these temperatures are above what they were yesterday. it's been very warm every morning this week, especially from tuesday on. we just continue to build on that. from mid-60s now, it won't take that much to get into the upper 70s this afternoon. tomorrow will be a different story. we have a front dropping over us, dropping the temperature into the upper 60s. that's still above normal for this time of the year, but it's going to feel cooler than it felt over the last several days. about a 25 percent chance of rain for saturday and 40 percent chance of rain for sunday. we're going to talk about the timing, which part of the day looks wetter than another. coming up with the interactive seven-day forecast. satellite and radar showing cloud cover, here's all of that flooding happening down to the south. the high pressure system has been keeping us dry and forcing the moisture back here. it's just been stationary. the high has been stationary. it's keeping the rain back to the west and the front has been stalled, creating flooding in
mississippi. well, the northern part of this front will dip to the south during the day today and starts to get us into the chance of showers. a slight chance today, but a chance of more on saturday. even more on sunday and monday. still, not looking at a washout by any means. we have a slight chance of showers today. a lot of 30 percent chance on saturday, 40 sunday and monday. by tuesday, we can just kiss the system goodbye and back to warm conditions next week. a warm day today. nearly 80 degrees. 10 degrees cooler tomorrow with a high of 68. but a warm start in the morning. we start with a chance of rain at 25 to 30 percent, then dropping off during the afternoon. sunday will be just the opposite. we'll see a better chance of rain later in the day with drier conditions in the morning eighty chance of showers monday and then dry into next week. that's a look at weather and brian has traffic to go. 6:50 now, elizabeth. looking at the friday morning commute, it's starting off pretty well.
map. just one accident showing up on the map this morning. it's over in westboro at jones franklin road. it looks like a minor accident. maybe a little bit of a slowdown on jones franklin road approaching western boulevard, but no big delays in the area. just something to keep in mind this morning. let's look through garner on 40 westbound, around the clayton bypass. it's slowing down a little bit, but fridays tend to be easier in terms of traffic volume and this morning, the drive time between 42 and 446 looking all right at 11 minutes. beyond that, no trouble. in durham, the freeway is clear between downtown and i-40. looking good as you leave chapel hill through south durham. and 85 is looking good, as well. we will continue to track this from 7:00 to 9:00. i have a heads up about concert traffic. the garth brooks show tonight,
night, around 7:00 or 7:30. you can expect really busy traffic on wade avenue, blue ridge road, i-40, 440, all of those roads there around pnc arena. if you're not going to the concert, avoid west raleigh if you can, think about alternate routes. that's a look at traffic to go. back to you. >> thank you, brian. get updates on news, weather and traffic while you're on the go, online and on the wral mobile phone app. 6:52. after trying to get pregnant multiple times, one couple made a last effort. >> and it involved listening to the radio. coming up, the life changing contest they entered and the prize they won. and a basketball star and a golf great come together on the court, but it wasn't just for a photo op. see the a amazing shot steph curry was able to pull off. "the today" show is coming up here after our newscast. here's matt lauer. good morning, matt. >> renee and bill, good
coming up here on friday, the surprisingly civil tone last night at the debate and how donald trump is responding to growing concerns about violence at his rallies. also a coversy tied to the s.a.t., why your address, even your race, could determine how much your kids are charged online prep courses. >>nd wouldt workfor you? approach to weight lots as she shows off a slimmer, new look. and still time to vote for the couple you want to get married in the big fat today wedding. we will reveal there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy.
above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that
america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
morning from family members and investigators about the victims and search for answers. plus, they call it body shaming, how "star wars" star responded to one person's nasty comment. that's coming up when you join us on fox 50. radio stations host a variety of giveaways and one lucky couple received a life changing prize in nevada they won a station's contest for a free in vitro fertilization procedure and now they're expecting a baby. before getting ivf, geneva suffered four ectopic pregnancies. each time she got surgery, her chances of a healthy pregnancy decreased. ivf ranges from 10 to $20,000. they entered the contest as a last resort and won. in a number of ways. the baby is due in september. nba star stef curry is doing amazing things. he can shoot from just about anywhere on the basketball
a long putt, as well. he was joined after a golden state warriors practice this week. he got the putt from one baseline to a makeshift hole at the other baseline and scored! what is it with that guy? he can do everything. >> if all golf courses were perfectly level smooth floors -- >> shiny -- [ laughter ] >> i still couldn't do it. >> i still couldn't do it. >> exactly. . >> that's serious skills. nbc's today show is next.
>> we will good morning. playing nice. >> i cannot believe how civil it's been up here. >> the republican for shlpresidential hopefuls abandon nasty insults and stick to the issues at last night's debate. while donald trump addresses accusations of growing violence at his campaign events. is he doing enough to discourage it? states of emergency. rescues in the south as the death toll rises from the flooding. rivers swelling to all-time highs. no relief in sight.
