seeded irish. the irish coach has made a habit of beating up on duke. they came from 16 down to beat duke last night. last year's a.c.c. championship game pitted the tar heels and irish together and carolina was in control up nine late in the second half and the irish stormed back to of course win last year's championship and then earlier this year the one time they played a game that notre dame won it was a nine-point tar heel halftime lead that the irish quickly evaporated in the second half. being in the lead against notre dame not necessarily a good thing. the only lead that is safe against them is the one you have at the end of the game. so a stiff challenge ahead for roy williams' guys. >> we do know these teams because we've seen them play all season long. it is not as bad as an early season tournament where you don't know anything about the guys but we'll try to get them the three or four most important things and let it go at that. i don't think we can get them 25. >> the key for the tar heels,
25 minutes of their first game yesterday against pit. they cannot have any parts of the game where they fall asleep at the wheel because notre dame will make you pay in a hurry. game time at 7:00 and full coverage later tonight at 10:00 and 11:00. back to you. >> let's hope they play like yesterday. >> we want to make the fighting irish pay not the other way around. the weekend is here. we have all these outdoor events. >> a little bit of rain, right? >> it shouldn't be too much of an issue for some of the big things going on. first up is the st. patrick's day parade. tomorrow morning there is just a chance of a spotty shower especially before 10:00. maybe one lingering after 10:00. 59 at 10:00. 64 by 1:00 p.m. so a warm day and again nothing more than a stray shower. shouldn't really interfere too much with that parade going on here in downtown raleigh. it is warm out there now. 79 at rdu international with winds on light side.
it's 80 in chapel hill. 73 southville. rocky mount wilson 78. a cool front near the virginia spread in temperatures. 81 irwin and fayetteville, too. and 80 degrees in clinton. the front will drop into southern parts of the state and just cool us off a little bit for tomorrow. there will be a lot of clouds around but not much in the way of rain. another rather breezy day. warm day, too. a lot of clouds at times. overall very nice day. the flooding rains abating a bit but still a major disaster for louisiana, mississippi, parts of arkansas. the heaviest rains now into the florida panhandle but still many areas in mississippi even into louisiana where it's not raining are under flash flood warnings because of all of the rain they've had and the flash flood watches. just a piece of that gets here sunday and gives us a few showers sunday afternoon. doesn't look like much rain. it won't be anything like what they're dealing with to the southwest of us. tonight's lows upper 50's to near 60. another very mild night.
still well above the average of 39. late tonight after midnight there could be just an isolated shower. weak front drops in. stalls out over the region. but there's just not much moisture with this front. no real ingredients in the atmosphere for widespread rain. so tomorrow a spotty shower in the morning. that's about it. then during the day sunday the front just back to the north as a warm front you see a little better chance for a few showers then especially into the afternoon hours. more on that in a little bit. but tomorrow, spotty shower in the morning and then by afternoon just a little cooler. triangle northward upper 60's north near 70. raleigh and durham. but still mid 70's to the south where you'll be near the front in some warmer air. about a 10-degree spread. the small chance in the morning hours of a shower. first alert accu weather seven-day forecast sunday a little better chance for some showers. then dry monday afternoon. better chance monday afternoon of a shower storm but much of monday dry. tuesday and wednesday we're in the upper 70's before it turns a little cooler later in the week. here we go back into the weekend
you see as we head through morning hours dry. so it looks good for the half marathon but into the afternoon hours, second half of the day, some scattered showers. won't be all that heavy. won't amount to all that much. if you are in that race, that tobacco road half marathon again, temperatures are going to be in the low 60's. it looks dry until afternoon. you see the rain chances going up as we head through the afternoon hours but still scattered activity. not going to be a wash out of a day. but the second half does look wetter than the first half. >> get the race in early. >> right. >> a good idea. all right. thanks. >> sure thing. >> it's not often presidential candidates agree, right? but one cookie makes it happen. >> plus this may not sit well with everyone but one local school district is talking to students about gun violence. how police think it will help change their minds a the effort some crooks
