so. and, in fact, looking at the track of the storm. it looks like we will see the storm tracking just off to the east. slowly. areas that will probably be in that area, anywhere from catonsville to wood hern, and lochearn. direction is 20 after you are seeing the rain come down. and other areas will probably continue to see the rain over the course of the next hour or so. moving to baltimore county into harford county. slice through the storm. looking at x vision. this is showing how strong the storms are. it looks like on a 3-d level. this is 20,000-foot mark. so as we go through the storms. some of the storms have higher mark. anywhere from 25 to 30,000 feet. and that is where usually more of the core of the lightning is associated, and the heavier downpours. through central carroll county right now. folks in westminster are dealing with that continue to have to see that lightning push through the region as well. going on to lightning. we can see the lightning strikes coming down pretty good northwest of randallstown. elks ridge with lightning as

who gets the most rain from the shower activity. all caused by slow moving stationary front taking the time across the area. but looks like a break on saturday. and then it looks like warmer temperatures for saturday. looking at 87 with a 40 percent chance can of a shower. 90 on saturday. clear skies. and 88 on sunday. with a 50 percent chance of rain. complete seven day in a few minutes. >> thank you, vytas. >> some wounded warriors take to the basketball court for the ultimate showdown. took place at the national naval medical center in bethesda. soldiers squared off against a wheelchair basketball team from the district of columbia. in the end the military team came out on top. 12-4. but everyone involved said the event was about building comradery and self esteem and not about winning or losing. >> restarting the heart cycle. new alternative to using stem cells to heal a heart. coming up next on fox 45 news "late edition". >> and will derrick mason change
