6:38 am
pwon the game 4-1 dominating the pcuban team which, if you live in pcuba, and if you know anything pabout cuban baseball, you know pthey love, they cherish their pbaseball. pthe fact the rays went to cuba pdominated this game, they're not pvery happy about. pnonetheless, rays are back home. pthey have a game in fort myers pat 1:00 this afternoon. pi spoke to the p.r. person this pmorning and he tells me the game pat 1:00 will go on but it will pnot be the team that travelled pto cuba. pthose guys will have a day off pand will be the minor league layers that will play against pthe minnesota twins down there pin fort myers for their 1:00 pgame. pmost definitely they need some prest after that long travel ptime. pit wasn't a very long flight. psomething like a half hour but pthe fact they were sitting on pthe tarmac for seven hours i pdon't think helped at all. pback to you guys. p>>laura: and after a gruling pschedule, too.

6:43 am
pthey're perfect right now. p40s, some spots 50s. pby the end of the week, though, pthey'll be flirting with 70 and pthat means that the humidity is pgoing to start to slide back. pto in general, just warmer the pnext few days. pwe're watching the next weather pmaker, this front come in. pthe problem is with this front, pit's going to hang around for a pfew days and because of that, pany little piece of energy or pweak disturbance that's along pthis front this weekend pincreases our chance for pshowers. pthe latest computer models are pgoing to keep it weakened, punsettled. pit will shower for a couple of phours, then be dry for a couple pof hours. pit's a mostly cloudy weekend pwith a good chance of showers pand then warm and muggy. pnot the nicest easter weekend
6:44 am
pwe're well below normal for the pmonth of march so we do need psome rainfall. pi know you don't want it this pweekend, but i think we are pgoing to deal with it. plovely sunshine, warmer today. pyesterday it's 71. ptoday up to 79 so even nicer pthis afternoon. pmostly clear, mild tonight. plow 63 degrees. pi think we'll make it to the plower 80s tomorrow and you'll pnotice the humidity starts to pincrease as well. pagain, unsettled is the term for pthis weekend. p40% to 50% rain chances on pfriday, saturday and sunday. pfinally on monday we'll come to pan end and we get sunshine back pfor tuesday. p>>vanessa: thank you. p6:44 and we're sticking here pwith 75 in bruce b downs. pit seems like this situation phere i mentioned the road debris pas well as the crash are really pcausing some concerns and delays pare getting worse so we actually phave two choppers overhead so pfirst sky fox chopper is showing
6:45 am
pcalling extensive debris so we pcan see what it is. pit looks like lots of mulch or plawn debris of sorts and you phave crews out here trying to pshovel it all up. pwe're hearing from our chopper pthat this is actually what pcaused the crash which there's pactually a separate scene pblocking a right lane a little pbit further down. pso you can see the delays are pbuilding. psecond chopper in the area pshowing how far backed up it is. pwe're seeing delays of about pfive to six minutes at this oint so at this point, no other palternates are jumping out as pbeing quicker but perhaps leave pa bit earlier if you have to phead that way. pkeep an eye on it and we'll let pyou know if that changes as far pas the ultimate situation. pas i mentioned before, five to psix minutes heading out doort -- pout the door. pbelcher. pvanessa. p>>vanessa: hello. p>>charley: according to my app,
