south. south wind picking to 36 miles an hour. isolated 3-inch amounts. down to monterey and big suhr. you can see the focus of the moderate rain is. they are looking for more rain than we were out of the system to the south. if the system holds, that's where it will be. it will be a rain snow mix at the 5500-foot level but above 7000 feet, that will be snow. it goes until 10:00 a.m. on thursday. upper 20s, some low 30s. that's the rain beginning to make it move so if you are leaving now, you might dodge some that have rain but the heavier rain will come later today. 40s and 50s are the temps and the system rotating around that jet stream support and some dynamics coming into play. if you want to call that

18 months. he has hodgkins and also hiv. he has been off hiv drugs for 18 months without a sign of the verse. the first person to be cured of hiv in a similar way is a california man named timothy ray brown who went under similar treatment 12 years ago. you'll hear from him and then a lead physician in this case. >> we are now 18 months in, but we are confident that this will be a long term remission but it's too early to say whether this is a cure or not. >> i would like to meet the london patient very much. i would say take your time and if you want to become public, do it. and it's been very useful for science and giving home to hiv- positive people. , to people living with hiv. >> as you can tell from the quote, the london patient has not yet been identified.
