marchth and also going down march 13th and if you didn't get to write details and dates down, you can always head into the n n 6 news and weather app and we've posted all of that information and the 2016 section. raul castro's older brother has died. ramon castro was the second of seven childrere he supported his brother's revolution, but did not take an active role. the reports won't say how he died, but that his body was cremated and his aeshs willshes will be taken to fidel's hometown. happening now, there's a remembrance at the o`a-locka airport where there is a memorial to the men. later tonight a mass at the shrine of our lady of charity starting at 8:00 and you'll remember back in 1996 the two aircraft were flying in international airspace when cuban piloted jet fighte shot them down, killing four men.
this is now live and you're looking live in orlando and lots of raindrops on that lens and theyeye waiting for severe weather to be hitting that area and in fact, w w are waiting for our own severe weather, as well and expecting ryan to hit during the peak of the commute hour on their way home tonight. we'll be keeping a close eye on the radar after we get into the drive time and any time after 3:00, 4:00. will it be severe? i think right now we're going to trend back from severe weathe and look for isolated, strong storms and we'll reassessthis as the day goes on and the one thing we have going on out there and no rain on first-alert doppler and a lot of sunshine. looking out live across miami beach and all of the sun we're seeing fueling up the atmosphere and that would help to at least support or itiate some isolated shower and thunderstorm activity into early afternoon hours. the sun playing a big part in this, but the actual line itself not quite as robust as it was earlier this morning and some of
orlando area and just some clusters out across the gulf of mexico and heading out to the east-northeast and it will head to charlotte county and most everything out here to the west of colyer county and still 100 or so miles away getting close to the beaches and we'll watch what's going on off to the west and we'll watch what happens overhead as showers try to bubble up and i think our best chances come in after 3:00 p.m. and could see isolated strong storms and the warmth, humidity and the breezy conditions is what you will see the rest of the dad. by the way, as soon as tomorrow morning, cooler and dryer weather back in and you notice the winds out of the south at 15 to 20 and the warm breeze, 84 opa-locka and 83 fort lauderdale and we're at 81 in marathon and we'll start to level off the temperatures at 84 this afternoon and more clouds building in and the rain chances after 3:00. the timing not great leading into the evening commute and
we'll keep you up-to-date if anything becomes severe. here is the threat tracker and the tornado risk will be going down and the heavy rain threat not really present and it's the gusty winds that could certainly come into play with any of the stronger storms that develop later this afternoon andnd if you don't have the nbc 6 news and weather app, download it for free and we'll get it with alerts pushed down to your phone. at 63 tonight and here is the storm systemriving all of this and the main severe threat with the huge low pressure with the front sweeping d dwn behind the showers that come through this evening and there's a bull's-eye, if you will, across virginia and down through north carorina and south carolina and we're on the tail end of that and here's where ourp best risk for stronger weather is across central florida. we're transitioning out of that threat area and we'll keep a close eye on the radar this afternoon. orms after 3:00, 84 and cooler weather as soon as tomorrow and
low of 63 and they settle in, cloudy, saturday and sunday lows into the 50s and probably some 40s and highs only of around 71, 72 to end the workweek and go into the weeknd and we are dry well into next week. adam berg and chief meteorologist john morales have you covered with the rest of the afternoon. >> thank you so much. are you superstitious? >> depends. >> depends. apparently kevin spacey is superstitious because he revealed the secret of the floridapanthers winning streak and it happened this morning. >> "6 in the mix" host roxanne vargas. >> as it turns out kevinspacey is the house of cards, and theet sweater given to the mvp of the game has his headshot against the space headshould the. get it? kevin spacey. they go on to win more games. so whatever work, keep snapping
