today's rain will come to an end soon but then what. >> we're trading in the wetness for wind. first things first. we dealt with that rain today as advised, wimp rain. we had patches of light rain. a couple of neighborhoods had a hundred or 200ths inch of rain. made for pretty pictures but that was about it. the rain pushing off to the northeast. a few sprinkles still possible around mesquite parts of the county. the rest moving into arizona and utah. however there is another system lurking in the pacific. rather potent system too. this is going to be more about wind than water as it slides on through. we'll time out exactly when you can expect the strongest winds and some of them could get quite bumpy. we'll do that during the forecast in just a few minutes. >> jim: thank you for that, kifen. news 3 has obtained video from inside the home of this man accused of secretly recording guests who rented out his home

of town with that. >> reporter: if you didn't know better you might think it is a birthday party. but look closer and you might ask who puts the traffic signal at a party. the answer transportation commission celebrating a wrap on the construction for the flamingo corridor. >> back when we started in we thought it was going to take so long. >> reporter: on time and on budget a 14 mile stretch of flamingo road is dmret. new bus and bike lanes, improved crosswalks. one of the busiest roads in the valley shiny and new.

again this part of east charleston from nellis to lamb will be closing at 9:00 p.m. tonight to finish this pedestrian bridge across charleston. for more information on the ramp closures, however, in the spaghetti bowl check out our website, news3lv.com, for all the maps you will need. reporting live, i'm denise rosch for news 3. back to you in the studio. >> reed: news 3 is not only your weather authority but your traffic authority. we want to show you a look at some of the travel you can see some areas it's slow going. right there on the 15 at the center of your tv screen. 24 miles per hour. elsewhere looking a little bit better. 45 the slowest on the 515. so everybody just drive safe. let's make sure we get to where we're going safely. for a live look at the roads from above let's shoot up to tom hawley in sky 3. >> tom: we'll start where we just heard denise rosch reporting live a moment ago where the bridge installation is going on over the weekend.
in the same area. this is one involving two vehicles which just sort of went sideways. this is on colorado street a little bit to the south of charleston. and then when we move the camera over here to about nellis and sahara we've got a couple of different sets of lights flashing. that's the eastbound lanes of sahara as you approach nellis blocking off the right lane. then on nellis you got a problem in the southbound lanes. that's blocking the left lane. this area of town inundated with accidents. in addition to that tonight. tom hawley reporting from sky 3. >> reed: keep it here for team traffic in the mornings. traffic and weather every ten minutes. >> jim: a knock on the door led to the murder of a man who opened it. he was shot in his apartment at tropicana and boulder highway. after being shot the man ran to his girlfriend in the other room. he was taken to sunrise hospital but doctors were not able to save him. when police arrived, the killer was gone. the victim's name has not been

the desert is where bad guys go when they want to make evidence disappear. but hiding the evidence won't help danny tarkanian. sure,
he can bury all those property taxes he skipped out on for years... ...or all those fake charities he helped set up... ...or the scams against seniors he formed... or the $17 million judgment he never paid. he can try, but he can't make his record disappear. danny tarkanian: just a con man who can't bury the truth. i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about the islamic state or isil than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people.
information on the two people found dead in their apartment. the investigation focused near west side of the valley. faith jessie is there live. what's the update from police? >> reporter: police are saying that they are still investigating to try to see what went down here at the union apartments. actually earlier today we spotted a police, metro police car going into the north side of the complex. metro police are investigating a double homicide at the union

unsafe at all. >> reporter: detectives are still investigating, trying to piece together a motive. police say that evidence on the scene suggests that there might be two adult male suspects, but they've yet to be identified. i'm faith jessie reporting. back to the studio. >> jim: thank you for that. a 95-year-old world war ii veteran lives here in town. she is facing an eviction tonight. the department of veterans irene miller her pension checks. the v.a. claims they had been overpaying her for years and now she has to pay them back. the entire $26,000. miller tells us since 2004 when her husband passed her pension checks did go up slightly, about $22 a month. and now she has no idea what she is going to do. >> so i guess if they throw me out of here me and my dogs are
>> jim: never happen irene there are plenty of people here in town who will take you in. we're hoping this gets worked out. the v.a. has not responded to our calls. staff and congresswoman's dina titus's office have contacted miller and they're trying to resolve this issue for her. >> reed: i see that story and step in and help that world war ii veteran. >> jim: we've had clouds and raindrops. we saw the wind kicking up in the live report. >> reed: weather authority kevin jan out. >> a little breezy tonight. more breezes tomorrow. the stronger winds hold off for sunday. should be a limited time offer only. these winds shouldn't last as long as some of our other wind events. we can pretty much stick a forge in the doppler -- fork in the doppler radar. all the action pushing off east out of clark county. but we had wild scenes especially this morning with round one of the rain made for some vivid rainbows in town and
believe -- i wish i had more light. but i believe that's a many shelf cloud forming. those could face at the base of a shower or thunderstorm. we did have claps of lightning. or possibly an oval ventricular cloud. but my bet is a shelf cloud. here is the view from our camera on top of mandalay bay. watch how the sheep mountains disappear with this afternoon's band of rain. wasn't that heavy but the clouds loaded enough to hide the -- low enough to hide the mountains. most of the action as expected up in day's worth of rain. but it just didn't amount to much. about a tenth of an inch and all they had. now they're still in the clouds but they'll clear out in the next couple of hours. 50 degrees and 57 percent. with the hair from the southwest it's really not that chilly. 77 at sahara and the 15. they had a single hundred inch of rain. near jones and the northwest,
our weather stations. temperature pretty mild still even on the back side of the system that rained on us. 73 to 77. got mid-70s up there in the northeast parts of town. pahrump at 71. still 78 in boulder city. you know that sun came out for a couple of hours. temperatures shot up. 84 the high. nine above normal. another above normal october day. and thanks to the rain and the breezes, air quality back in the good category. a green scene as far as concerned. your saturday mid to upper 60s between seven to 9:00 a.m. whenever you leave your house or if you don't leave the house until lunchtime, mid-70s. up to 80 for a high. with the sunshine. the breeze does pick up. around ten miles per hour but there will be bobbing and weaving with those gusts some of which will exceed 20 miles an hour. that's tomorrow. the rain continues to push off to the northeast. what's left in mesquite. also moving into arizona and utah. look at this big system out in the pacific.
to the north. the wind, i think sunday could get bumpy with gusts up and possibly over 40 miles an hour. 42 on the mountain. 62 in mesquite for lows. highs tomorrow. the lake could get choppy with the breezes. 85 there. laughlin a high of 90. 77 over the hump. the valley 64 degrees. the rain is out of here and clearing. a few breezes will start to pick up overnight. they'll still be blowing tomorrow at time we're expecting on sunday. should make it to 80 degrees. 7-day forecast. it's sunday afternoon when we expect those stronger winds. some of those up around 40 miles an hour. sustained in the 20s. but they'll die down quickly. certainly by midday monday. cooler on monday. if you are heading out for all hallows' eve we're expecting light wind and temperature of 70 and clear skies. should be a very nice, mild envy
that's monday evening. >> jim: don't forget kids. >> do you think they will? >> reed: not a chance. >> do you think there's one child who may forget. >> reed: my children are trying their costumes on way too early. >> we're going trick-or-treating. i forgot! [ laughter ] . >> jim: an american airlines plane burst into flames today as it was about to take off. >> pretty big flames. pretty big pow. first it was a clunk. after the clunk, >> jim: see the incredible video and find out what caused the fire coming up. and more shopping options on the west side of town. we'll take to you the delayed grand opening for phase two of
he deep understanding of the challenges we face, or the one who is unprepared for them? a steady hand? or a loose cannon? common sense and unity, or drama and division? a woman who's spent her life helping children and families, or a man who's spent his life helping himself? our children are looking to us. what kind of country will we be? hillary clinton, because we're stronger together. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. we've learned a lot about how joe heck works. follow the
money. he called nevada's foreclosure crisis a "blip" and took almost $700,000 from wall street, including some of the same banks who caused the crisis. and then there's money he's taken from payday lenders who charge 521% interest.
add it all up, and joe heck is working for corporate special interests. and that doesn't work for nevada. senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. is responsible for the content we've got a choice to make. jacky rosen wants to build an economy that works for all of us, creating good jobs, expanding solar energy, and improving our schools. but with danny tarkanian, you can't escape the sleaze. tarkanian lost $17 million in a failed development scheme and stuck taxpayers with the bill. harities used to scam nevada seniors. danny tarkanian's out for himself. dccc is responsible
>> jim: beautiful town right? today at the national atomic testing station the cold war patriots group honored 700,000 people who worked on the manhattan project. that was the government program to research and develop a nuclear bomb during world war ii. thousands of those workers were employed at the nevada test site and many >> here in nevada literally thousands of individuals worked for almost four decades at the national test site. so they were kind of the tip of the civilian sphere if you will making sure the nuclear arsenal performed the way that it did so we could live in peace and freedom for seven decades. >> jim: the patriots helped the former test site workers get access to healthcare. more than shopping happening today at tivoli village.
the ceo of the property moved to las vegas in 2005 to work on this mom otsdz project. like so many other developments the project came to a halt when the economy crashed. it took investors in israel to get tivoli village built and open. phase two isn't the final phase. part three is in the works. nevada matters in decision 2016 that's why vice president joe biden will be in las vegas tomorrow. >> jim: the trump campa candidate will be here this weekend. details on how to see either one of them. >> reed: a would-be groomed turned violent when his proposal gets a no. details on his bizarre reaction
"she's a slob." "she ate like a pig." "i'd look
her right in that fat, ugly face of hers..." donald trump calls women "bimbos", "dogs", and "fat pigs." but congressman crescent hardy said he'd support donald trump 100%. nevada, there's a better choice: ruben kihuen. kihuen pushed to crack down on employers who pay women less than men. and kihuen will always protect a woman's right to choose.
. >> reed: just days before the election ande into hillary clinton's personal emails. >> jim: the timing here comes after the agency uncovered new emails in a separate investigation into disgraced congressman anthony wiener that may be related to the clinton investigation. mary maloney sorts out all the new developments. >> the american people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately. >> reporter: in a letter sent to eight congressional committee chairmen, fbi director james comey said the bureau learned
pertinent to the investigation into hillary clinton's private server. comey wrote... i agree that the fbi should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information as well as to assess their importance to our investigation. the fbi discovered the emails as agents investigated anthony wiener. the former congressman and estranged husband of top clinton aide huma abedin. he is being investigated for allegedly sexting with an are not from clinton herself. still little is known about what information the messages contain. >> it's imperative that the bureau explain this issue and question whatever it is without any delay. because right now your guess is as good as mine. and i don't think that's good enough. >> reporter: donald trump wasted no time and pounced. >> this is bigger than watergate. hillary clinton's corruption is
