exhaustion or other heat related injuries. you still have to be careful. only 15% chance for today and tomorrow it goes up to 20%. after that it goes up higher. we are looking at a 40% chance for thursday and friday and some of that will be overnight thursday night and into friday morning. an average of half an inch to an inch of rain. that will be good to see and in some isolated pockets we could see fairly heavy rain causes localized flooding and we are not likely to see that widespread. looking at 88 saturday and sunday. good to see the temperatures dropping a bit for the weekend and we have a chance of an isolated thunderstorms. our morning lows do not change much. back to you. >> thanks, elizabeth. new overnight. turkish police launched simultaneous raids in connection with last month's field coop. turkey state run news agency say tes targeted 44

look at that. the dew point is 79 in erwin, 78 in goldsboro. when the dew point make it into the upper 70s it feels especially sticky. if i dew points drop-down it feels fairly moderate in this time of year if we can ever drop it into the 50s which is kind of rare, it really feels like fall is right around the corner. it won't feel like that today certainly let's talk about the heat advisory. it i what is not happening but today that is important. what is happening is the heat advisory is up here in northeastern california. it includes northampton company -- county including roanoke. that's where it will feel like 15 to 108. that is the criteria for a heat advisory. you need to. >> it to get up to 105 at least for a few hours. so the rest of the area here is going to feel like 100 to 104. it does not quite meet the
