alba n it looks like if you start off the weekend with travel around north carolina, things will be quiet towards the coast. the beach forecast, we're expecting a mixture of sun and clouds today. temperatures should range in the upper 60s to 70s with a southwest breeze and a slight chance of a sprinkle. but it will be mainly dry. a better chance of showers or thunderstorms on the coast on sunday with partly cloudy skies. highs tomorrow mid-60s to mid-70s. over in the mountains, mostly cloudy skies, maybe a stray sprinkle or light shower, highs in the 70s and a pretty decent
and maybe an isolated storm on monday. highs tomorrow in the upper 50s to upper s. for us, more clouds than sun, but a couple of bright spots. 68 at lunchtime. we'll top out around 74 and may see a couple isolated sprinkles. >> thank you. something coming into the news room. a series of traffic lights out. we have confirmed that wilmington and bluff, that downtown area is having traffic light issues we'll get more information about why. note to self if you're heading to that area. the same company that brought us normal barbie, that was what she was called in 2013, well, here comes normal ken.
some of the many victims of a growing tax scam aimed at stealing refunds. >> last year, when we filed our taxes, the irs flagged our account because someone filed a phoney return under my husband's social security number. >> the best way to keep it from happening to you, file it early. beat the scammers to the punch. plus, you get your refund sooner and considering roughly 2/3 of americans get a refund and the average is for about $2700, that part is good. even if you owe money, there are still some advantages to filing early. >> that way, you have plenty of time to figure out where the money will come from or to set up a payment schedule. this year, to have to pay by april 18th and you don't want to be late and incur penalties or fines >> another benefit, you may be
college financial aide. early applicants often get more money. don't rush through it. check accuracy to prevent amending the return later. that could incur fines. >> another reminder for victims of tax scams, they're out there. you can get a special pin number that will protect you from future tax fraud. request it through irs.gov. another warning, scammers, e-mailing, tech -- texting, calling people. the irs want you to know, they do not call you when there's a problem, they contact you via mail first. >> it's scary.
something to keep an eye on. >> we're keeping an eye on the weather. a couple of us have a stray sprinkle or two, north and east of the triangle area. we have this lapsing over the last hour and it's not widespread and they're very light and small spotty areas of sprinkles going on arnd the virginia border this morning. those are generally drifting east and northeast. there could be some redevelopment in spots throughout the day. a lot of us get through the bulk of the day without rain we mend a little bit here. you can see northeastern sections, northern parts of gnash county seeing patchy sprinkles moving through as well in addition to the ones near the border we have a lot of cloud cover. there's a couple of thin spots or breaks but a lot of us are seeing cloud cover. looking towards downtown.
62 degrees with cloudy skies reported and east winds at 7 miles per hour. the dew point at 48, the pressure at 30.24-inches looking at the town by town temperatures and there's a little bit of a range, but not that much. upper 50s and low 60s in most spots. about 58 degrees in fayetteville and it's a mile morning to start the day. looks like a mild day overall. cloud cover thickening up through the course of the day yesterday there were some periods where we saw a fair amount of sunshine that got us into the low 80s. we made it to 80 degrees at the airport yesterday. first time we hit 80 since back in early october. we have more active weather to the west and southeast, you can see moisture flowing up on the east side of an upper-level low, that should kick out to the northeast and weakening but some
into north carolina a little more so. we did have a cold front moving yesterday and last night. starting to dissipate. it looks like it will wash out and drift to the north as we go along. looking at the future cast model, you can see the fact that we see a lot of cloud cover, a couple of thin spots or breaks time. and a couple small sprinkles that could pop up. i wouldn't let that make you change your plans today we see a north to south range on temperatures to go along with that. overnight, variably cloudy skies, towards morning, there could be some low clouds and pockets of fog we have the system to our west getting closer. a better chance of hit and miss area of shower activity and maybe an isolated storm or two. the best during the second half of the day and into the evening. for today, looks like we'll have a high around 74 degrees.
couple thinner, brighter spots 62 at 8:00. 68 at noon, and we'll be around 74 still at 5:00. overnight, down to 58 for a low. it looks like tomorrow's high reaches 74. could have some area of fog, about 60 and then a chance of rain going up to 40, maybe 50% as we get into the afternoon and evening hours and there's a slight chance of thunder we'll have a small chance of thunderstorms on monday especially during the afternoon or evening and one or two of those could be on the intense side something we'll watch closely. 77 is the high then and back into the 70s and low 80s with lots of sun on tuesday and wednesday and then some stronger cooling coming our way late next week and into the weekend after that. so 60s for highs on friday. >> even that, not bad. >> thank you so much. members of a fitness class
they were working on would be tested when a man collapsed. >> a total of 15 minutes before the ambulance came. >> coming up, why a paramedic says two women did the best they could. a bystander, you might be grumpy after losing an hour of sleep tomorrow. that's happening tomorrow. that's your first reminder.

small town known for its sweetwater melon, sugar town, louisiana. >> all the way to south africa. >> green has sewn more than 200 blankets for children with cancer and other illnesses. >> i have 61, i counted them this morning. >> 61 more blankets her son justin is a childhood cancer survivor >> your life changes overnight. what you knew the day before is totally different thnext day. >> two rounds of leukemia and five years total of chemo, she saw what a piece of home, a soft blanket, could mean in the hospital. >> that was his comfort he had with him. >> through the facebook page and word of mouth, she connects with

turn your clocks ahead one hour sunday morning. sleep experts say losing that hour of sleep could have an effect on your health. when the body doesn't get enough sleep, the immune system suffers. it could lead to some diseases, possibly like breast cancer. it's a great time to change out the batteries in your smoke alarm and don't forget the carbon monoxide detectors every time on the scene of a fire, firefighters talk about how important it is to make sure you're up to date on the carbon monoxide and the fire alarms. we have a lot of reminders today. >> that is right. like you were talking about, we spring forward, we just changed to that back in november and going back out of it. let's look at radar, we have a couple of sprinkles mainly in
area and there are some breaks further south across the north, mainly cloudy skies and some light radar echoes drifting east and northeast and there's a little bit of redevelopment on the southwest side of that. a couple echoes start to pop up. for the next several hours, we'll have the chance over the northern half of the viewing area to see a stray sprinkle pop up. not a lot of coverage and nothing that will be heavy and the chances will be falling off midday into the afternoon we have some cloud cover in the north. this is a look at the skycam. the clouds 3,000 feet off of the ground. overcast with light winds. you can see the flag is not moving around that much. the temperatures include 62 at durham. here at the station, 57, we widen the view and we have 58 in fayetteville. rocky mountain around 6 0 degrees.
looking at satellite and radar, you can see areas of cloud cover moving across the region yesterday. we had some thin spots and areas of sun at times especially into the early afternoon. all that goes into the lower 80s we had a frontal system you can see here moving south across the region. it moves south of north carolina last night and it's kind of starting to waiver a little bit now and will dissipate during the day and washout somewhat and warmer air starts to move back to the north. that's a pattern that lasts midweek. we have low pressure to the west. that will move to the north. eventually, some of the moisture associated with it will be edging eastward and giving us a chance of showers and isolated storms later tomorrow and into monday >> as we look at the upper- level flow, you can see the system over texas i was talking about. it will be moving northeast and
after having some cooler air dipped into north carolina today, we'll have some warming between today and tomorrow in terms of the air temperature, however, we'll have a better chance of showers that should keep the temperatures not much different. getting into monday, we'll have a little bit of additional warm angry another upper-level trough approaching and later monday and monday evening, that could kick off a band of scattered showers and one or two thunderstorms, that should be out of here to the east by the time we get to tuesday. we'll see sunshine and going into wednesday, we'll warm up in the low 80s there is cooler air to the northwest that starts to filter in from that direction into the end of the week. for today, about 62 at 8:00 in the morning. 68 at lunchtime. 74 for the high. more clouds than sun. a slight chance of a sprinkle
a low of 58. tomorrow's high about 74. midday on, we'll increase the chance of hit and miss showers and thunderstorms. on monday, a high around 77 degrees and there is a marginal risk looking ahead to severe thunderstorm mostly with some hail or localized damaging winds. low-end risk but something to watch. a couple bright days tuesday and wednesday climbing into the 70s and low 80s and a cooling trend late in the week. we have jack here who is just over a year old and just finished dinner. he should be happy. log onto wral.com and type pets in the box. >> not complete until you get the sweet stuff. how can a stick or a metal rod help you find underground
