11:21 am
requests ". >> busy in the 2015 election. thanks carrie dann. we'll look at our weather now. chuck? here's the satellite and radar combined. the heavy rain we had is long gone off the jersey coastline. we've broken out into an enormous amount of around here. temperatures have zoomed into the low and mid-80s already. this will only add fuel to the fire for range chances today. there's a ripple in the atmosphere across the ohio valley plus that plume of moisture coming our way. the combination of those factors will put the squeeze play on us. as a result we should ring out quite a bit in the way of rainfall amounts late tonight into the pre-dawn hours of tomorrow morning. for now all is quiet around there. team team storm team 4 radar scanning the shiez. i'll . paris is officially breaking up with one of the city's symbols of undying love. thousands of so-called love locks are being removed from a
