7:17 am
saturday, 55 compared to 65 which is the normal this time of year. saturday, 28, and the record was actually 23. but i'm getting close to it. that cold air mass sits right over us for the hard freeze potential. that would put an end to the growing season. if you still have plants out on your porch, now is the time to bring those in. we are looking at a freeze potential sunday morning. tuesday, still not looking at impressive amounts, most likely from the triangle area north and west, it's going to be a trace to a tenth of an inch and from raleigh southeast, more likely quarter inch to a half inch. that is certainly great but we are not likely to end up seeing of course a whole lot of rain with that. we definitely need more of that
7:18 am

7:20 am
for example, the astronaut's footprints we would expect to be wiped out somewhere on the order of millions of years from now but actually it's going to be thousands of years, much quicker. the moon is changing much faster and has been much more dynamic than we ever could have expected. >> very interesting. if you want to learn more about the orbiter and research that nasa is doing, go to nasa.gov. dr. alex young, thank you so much for joining us this morning, always great stuff. we had over to brian where it looks like the traffic is moving fairly well behind you. >> it is, but remember that overturned tractor-trailer on the ramp from i-40 two miami boulevard? the ramp from i-40 is open but they have just closed the ramp from i-40 eastbound two miami boulevard. apparently this is happening

joining us is the department of veterans affairs, sloan gibson. thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me on this great veterans day. >> there has been a lot of talk of privatizing va healthcare after the commission on care report. privatization help or hurt veterans in your estimation? >> i think first of all if you ask the vast majority of veterans, they their health care at the va. they find the camaraderie, the quality of care, the treatment and the respect is what they are really looking for. you know, i think more fundamentally, when you look at va, there is no healthcare organization in the world that has the scope and scale to be able to provide the care and support for veterans that we do. take mental health care as a great example, between our
7:34 am
substance abuse programs, the half-million outpatient appointment programs completed every month, the way we integrate mental health care into primary care, and then there are the nonclinical determinants of care. things like disability compensation, caregiver stipends and the like. there is no organization in america that can provide that kind of comprehensive care and support for patients. north carolina has one of the largest veterans populations in the country. can you talk about some of the changes to health care and benefits that you are seeing and that you have been working for to make sure the veterans get the care that they need? >> short. i think around the access issues that you alluded to earlier, there are really three or four different areas where we can work to improve access, staffing, space, productivity, and care in the community. i can tell you we have moved in
7:35 am
north carolina and have opened five different large 200 to 300,000 large centers across the state in north carolina. we have added tons of additional staff in our medical facilities there and we have dramatically expanded care in the community that is available to our veterans so they can get the care that they need when they need it. >> sloan gibson, much for joining me and letting veterans know the access that they do have to care. it is very important, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> i think we all agree that they need to be cared for in a very special way and today, we honor all of our veterans. elizabeth, i'm glad to see that we have a sunny day for our veterans. >> we were watching the rotc 5k run, the weather was so great,
7:36 am
up, not a cloud in the sky. it is chilly. if you're walking to and from were standing outside, you will need the code. 37 durham, 38 cary, 37 degrees in roanoke rapids. now that the sun is up temperatures should warm up quickly. low to mid-60s by lunchtime, mid-to upper 60s this afternoon, someplace is going to hit 72. whev nice. i know there were a number of ceremonies this morning. i'm honored to be the mc of the fuquay-varina ceremony at the golf club coming up at 10:00 a and. lunchtime, 63 degrees, and our high temperature again nice and mild this afternoon at the age. it will be a bit blustery which does not mean a whole lot for us but does mean worsening fire conditions in the western part of the state and we'll talk more about that coming up in
7:37 am
meantime, brian has a look at how traffic is moving along this morning. >> emmy victor reported about the deadly accident in downtown raleigh, that crash investigation continues and likely will throughout the rest of the morning commute. at the moment, dawson street is blocked at cabarrus street. accident is further south near lenore and south streets but they haven't blocked off at cabarrus street. looking at sensor readings we are not seeing any huge delays on dawson street which is good news. if you want to use an alternate, might i suggest using salisbury or street, another option for southbound traffic downtown. this will be with us through the rest of the morning commute. plan on the alternate route if you're heading southbound through downtown raleigh. on the north side of town we have a report of a minor accident on spring forest road and shanda drive, not far from six forks road. notice traffic is moving along nicely but not causing any big problems.
7:38 am
the ramp from 40 eastbound onto miami boulevard is blocked as they try to clear a tractor- trailer that is overturned on the shoulder on the ramp. traffic from 40 eastbound is moving along well but with the ramp close, think of alternate routes as well, maybe taking davis drive beyond 54 and then pick up miami boulevard on the other side of the closure. let's take a look at drive times on 40 westbound. we have not had any congestion to report in garner, the first quiet morning to report in several weeks. eight minutes from 42 to 440. in the fortify zone, 11 minutes, and of course the trip from wade avenue to 540 heading to the airport and park, delay free. dozens of businesses are hoping to honor our veterans today. >> we will tell you where they

7:47 am
our dewpoint is down at 34 and should stay in the 30s today. when the temperatures climb up to 70 it's going to be a crisp, dutiful, and fantastic. 35 in henderson, 47 in south hill, 37 chapel hill. town by town, 33 in sanford, 38 in erwin. we have a little strip of some temperatures in the 30s and slightly warmer from fayetteville and clinton. it will be short-lived as mild air sitting over us right now will be replaced by ve rushing in tonight. we will feel it tomorrow morning, it will be really chilly but cold for sunday morning. and, along this front, we are going to have breezy conditions, winds gusting 20 to 25 miles per hour, especially up into the mountains which is not good news for folks here. they have not had rain in a long time, not significant rain. it is not just the mountains of north carolina that we are concerned about that the mountains in georgia, kentucky, west virginia and tennessee and
7:48 am
in north carolina, the governor issued a state of emergency for some of our western counties and intra-counties there are evacuations going on. lake lure, southeast of asheville, and chimney rock state park, it is close. it's not burning but is close because of fires in the area. there is an air quality alert because of all of the smoke. after the front come through, it will push into our area so you may notice in the air for saturday. of course, d the main factors leading to the wildfires. they are in extreme to extensive drought, they haven't had any rain, we have had the rain in our area from hurricane matthew which kept us out of the draw but none of that rain back in the mountains. a lovely day today, 68, a high of 55 on saturday and the morning low at 28 bringing us the first hard freeze of the season. riley, monday and tuesday we have clouds and a chance of
7:49 am
but not much. the mountains will miss out on that, very little rain along the coast, anywhere from a half inch to an inch of rain. after that, dry wednesday and thursday. brian is looking at the roads. are you still dealing with that overturned tractor-trailer? >> the ramp from 40 eastbound is still blocked, as they try to clear an overturned tractor- trailer. it is not affecting traffic on the ramp from miami boulevard onto 40 eastbound but you can see a lot of cars getting into that interchange, getting to the ramp, reiz let's give you the best alternate route to get around to that. consider taking davis drive down to 54 and then pick up miami boulevard. you will notice because of those backups we are starting to see slow southbound traffic, heading into 540 and rtp. be patient heading into south durham this morning and remember if you're trying to
