7:47 am
had heavier rain from the western part of our vowing area back toward the mountain and just over the last three or four hours. we have aseen that really weakening. it has lost a lot of its support. the support for this is a cold front that is coming into the mountains right now. so all of this rain sort of ran out ahead and now it is going -- it doesn't have any lift really to continue. so a couple of scattered showers from raleigh northward an westward potentially. not as likely to so south. this afternoon, with a little daytime heating, we should have more showers and thunderstorms develop but that cold front will be slow in arriving t doesn't move into our viewing area until tomorrow. that will bring us a better chance of showers and thunderstorms. you can see the wet roads in roxboro and downtown. we are seeing gray skies everywhere. it feels like a little more like summer. 66degrees at the airport. our dew point is at 66. it feels very muggy this morning compared to yesterday

7:49 am
more rain showing up on futurecast and some of this rain could be heavy at times especially tomorrow. we continue to watch this storm right here if it gets a name which is looking more likely than it did yesterday. its name will be matthew. this is a look at the computer model forecast. the hurricane center giving us about a 90% chance of developing into a tropical system in the next 48 hours. look at this. it look like it may take that sharp turn up toward the united states potentially by late in e we'll continue to watch that one closely. as soon as they give day name and start with the forecast tracks, we'll let you know how that is looking. 18 our high today. a lot of cloud cover. about a 40 to 45% chance of showers and thunderstorms late are this afternoon. on wednesday, we'll have an even better chance for storms, about a 60% chance plus a million man march natural risk for severe weather. as you mentioned, everything turns much nicer for the weekend and we have wide open bluegrass along with many, many

7:51 am
eastbound. the ride on 54 east out to tw alexander drive is taking about 15 minutes. we are likely going to see the delays building steady until they can get the crash cleared up. around the rest of the triangle, major routes are in pretty good shape. just getting word of an accident on glenwood avenue at ebb knees are church road. you will notice the red line there indicating some pretty significant delays starting to build as you head towards 540 this on 440 westbound around wake forest road and that is contributings to those delays. -- and that is contributing to those delays. back to you. >> thank you. late golf legend arnold palmer is on the cover of sports illustrated this week. the core line is king of kings. a vintage photo of him on the golf course.
