6:16 am
psome people, especially inland, phit the mid 70s for high ptemperatures so that is a ossibility. pyesterday was a struggle and pwhen those showers moved in pmiddle of the afternoon, that ut the kabash on us. ptoday should be a few degrees pwarmer overall. pyou can see over my shoulder, pclouds in louisiana and texas. pthere's a next disturbance that pwill come swinging through the parea tomorrow. pmaybe a quick shower but poverall, not a lot of rain with ptomorrow's forecast. pso a better chance of some pdecent rain on saturday. pwe do have all this drier air in pthe mid levels of the patmosphere. pwe're going to take care of that pby bringing in moisture to the pwest of us. pthis is what happens with an el pnino type pattern. pyou get a disturbance that pswings through, a quick shower pand the sun will come out and panother disturbance comes pthrough, a quick shower. pit's like every couple of days, pevery day or two, you're pactually getting little pdisturbances to work their way pin. pthis low has moved to the pnortheast now.
6:17 am
phere's our weather maker for ptomorrow. pbehind that is a cold front. pthat will come swinging through pon saturday. phere it is in the four corners parea of the country. ponce that moves through, we'll pknock temperatures back to the p60s for highs for the beginning pof next week. pno rest for the weary in pcalifornia. pit continues to rain day after pday after day. pthis, again, classic especially pwith the strong el nino pattern plike this. pvariable clouds, mild, 74 for a phigh today. ptonight overnight lows near 62 pdegrees and tomorrow mostly pcloudy, a few showers around. pit should be a huge deal. pkind of like yesterday, it was pthe middle of the afternoon. p60% the rain chance on saturday pand that will get the sunshine pback for sunday as we cool pthings off to the mid 60s for
6:18 am
p>>vanessa: all right. pand right now we're following a pserious injury crash involving a edestrian that's affecting pfletcher avenue and bruce b pdowns boulevard. preally going to be affecting pwestbound traffic. pwe're hearing that westbound ptraffic is being diverted pnorthbound and southbound. pnot only will you run in the phiccups heading in that pdirection but also probably palong bruce b downs boulevard pyourself. pyou have all the extra traffic pbeing pushed onto the roadway. pa pedestrian is involved, pserious injuries are reported. pwe'll have more updates as soon pas we get them. pwe have a look at the drive ptimes on the interstates. plooks like things are pretty pclear here. p275 southbound just 33 minutes pheading from flech to her -- pfletcher to the bayway. peastbound along i-4 from the pinterchange, maybe heading ptowards the area of the pconnector, plan for just about pfour minutes. p>>russell: it's expected to take pweeks to make a final pdetermination of just what kind pof weapon north korea fired and
