society do to make sure the pathways are much smoother than the way they're laid out now." . >> all right. wes moore and robert henderson, thank you so much for joining bus morning. this film is certainly going to be a spotlight into certain communities we need to see more of. i really appreciate that.

. it looks pretty on our tall tower camera. a little bit of high thin cloud cover, but you'll see plenty of sun once that sun gets a little higher. that will be heating us up quickly. 71 is our current temperature. humidity is 87%. that dew point you know, as long as it stays out of the 70s, it's little more tolerable. i think it should stay just out of the 7 0s today. it is 69 in south hills, 70 in roanoke rapids. town by town, 72 in pines, 71 in fayetteville, and 70 degrees in clinton. let's talk a little bit about rain. now, we got a lot of rain last weekend. friday night, early saturday with hermine coming through. ahead of that -- of course the drought update comes out on thursday. it's about 9:00 a.m. we can talk about it yesterday, because it doesn't come out until after our newscast is over. but we did have this swath of about normally try conditions last week. then, of course, hermine came through, and it really
from say the triangle area southward and eastward. but we still have a pocket of about normally dry conditions up here -- franklin county, mecklenburg county, virginia. we just didn't have as much rain closer to the virginia line. still dealing with drought issues back to the west as well, especially the southern mountains. we really don't have much of a wet pattern in our forecast. . we might slip back to that about normally dry category by sunday, this cool front drops in on us, and it will bring us a chance of showers and storms. most of that's going to be fairly lit in the day, maybe around dinner time or so. so if you have outdoor plans on sunday, you should be able to get most of it in. look at this heat. the hottest conditions here in the pinks and then the gray colors, those gray contours are where it's hottest. we're likely to see temperatures climbing into the mid-90s this average. saturday stays hot as well, more like low 90s.
the south, and it will feel a little better for us on monday and tuesday. wednesday, interestingly enough, we have another little nose of heat that bumps up into north carolina just briefly, because late wednesday, another front comes through, and shifts it back down to the south. looks like it's going to be pretty pleasant for us for thursday. i'm hoping that will carry into next weekend, too. 95 today. it's going to feel like upper 90s with the heat index. we typically think about aler joy problems in the spring, but i think folks who suffer from allerg and weeds are a problem. and our weeds are now high, especially ragweed and -- if you're a little sniffly, that could be why. we talked about, for hopscotch, it was last night tonight and for saturday. saturday's probably going to be the busiest night. 6:00, 89 degrees. at 9:00, 80. it's definitely going to be warm. that holds true for any outdoor events you may have. . back into the mid-80s on monday.
that is going to feel fantastic. ryan, tell us we have a fantastic commute this morning. >> i wouldn't say "fantastic," but it could be much worse in most spots. 7:50. take a look at the live commute. a few crashes that are still getting cleared up, one on 42 near the i-40 interchange in western johnston county. you'll notice that red on the eastbound side of 42 heading away from highway 50. hard to tell if that's related to the accident or just typical con education we'll interchange. we'll note some improvement out there. earlier delays have cleared up nicely. as you head up toward the 440 interchange, just going to run into a little delay between business 70 and 440 this morning as you merge into that slow traffic in the fortified work zone. 20 minutes now to make the trip from 440 out toward wade avenue with most of those delays now between 440 and the u.s. 1 interchange. get out to u.s. 1, it autos a smooth ride out toward 54 and beyond. also look out for a crash this
