today. that's moving off towards the south. the thing that's unknown right now is what's happening with that storm system next week. all of the forecast models you could ever look at are going a completely different way. so at this point, it looks like yes, the form is going to get closer. but there's indications that dry air from the south is going to filter a little closer. that's not going to mean not as much in terms of rainfall, but i think there's some hope. about a 35% chance next thursday. otherwise, temperatures cool off tuesday and wednesday next week with upper 60s, as well. so overall by this weekend, it looks great. low 70s coming our way throughout saturday and also sunday. >> okay. thank you, jeff. coming up, bust a move in an operating room. a viral video that will make you smile.
