mcmillan, from the popular cbs morning show here with me and my rambunctious puppy ted. >> i teddy has been charming everyone in this building since he arrived. you know it, rahel. so take a look ahead to the upcoming weekends, on the cool side come this saturday. temperatures smidge below average. we warm up through the course of the weekends, and also increasing amounts every sunday shine through the weekend, high pressure will regain control.
more sun than anything in spot. enjoy it while you have got it. >> of course. >> my job, the weather constantly changing so we have to keep you ahead of it, does look like there will be one or two separate systems we have to track through the course of the week, also a cool down, we have the phillies home opener coming up. a lot of things to get to here, we walk you outside, first and for most, with a look at the scenario, on storm scan right now. big wide zoom on this. showing really not too much locally, even other than couple of clouds, actually brighter than it is gray outside. we can see moisture beginning to build in from the southwest, this is the combination of the storm system, we talked about it earlier in the show too. this storm really showing some very good not just intensification but organization. a lot of really nasty thunderstorms rumbling into the panhandle of florida right now, this is the moisture that's being sent our way, tow we end up late tonight with a a heavy round every thunderstorm, or very heavy rain at least through the overnight. now we walk you through that in a second here, but looking
at today's severe weather threat, all from yesterday since migrated to the east. we will not be in a severe weather threat at all here locally tomorrow. but i do think we could get doused by there is i do think we will see some thunderstorms out of. >> this let me time it out for you. coming ahead to 5:00 p.m. this evening, even still, not one sign of life on the radar, say for more cloud cover building in. probably not until 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 at night we start to see wet weather building in. now there is heavy round every rain that's going to move in through the overnight hours. and that i think will leave behind spray from vehicles, ponding, but the muscle being -- bulk of the moyer tuesday to the northeast of the city where you will see flood watch go into effect. so mercer county included and the rest of northwest new jersey if that's where your travels take you. then left with the scattered showers, throughout the rest of the day. it is not a wash out by any stretch. but there will be some heavier thunderstorms that likely rumble in into the afternoon. come wednesday, high pressure set unless for brief break. we end up with some sunshine. talking future rain apartments, i will put this into motion, right through
tomorrow. i don't think we are talking about the kind of totals we had with friday's storm, that was obviously an all day event. this is going to be more like couple of tents of an inch throughout the course of our tuesday. but this is the first of two. like we mentioned, so again, flood watch goes in effect late tonight, mercer county included if you are a new york city commuter, you could get impacted by this through late tonight and tomorrow morning drive. but the flood watch technically lasts until tuesday evening. outside cut town area middle school, beautiful afternoon unfolding, more cloud cover, 59 degrees the current temperature, notice the win flow currently coming out of the southwest. so that's where the warmth is coming from. but with time this is clouds will continue to build. we hit high of about 66 degrees, which is well above average by about seven, 8 degrees. later tonight dropping down to 53, when the rain moves in, again primarily late tonight, and then stuck with scattered showers, thunderstorms tuesday. break on wednesday. thursday bridges back more showers and gusty thunderstorms, and to me right now it does look like the phillies home opener will be cooler granted but nothing
more than a stray left over shower. guys back to you. >> come on, go on, go play. welcome to the lucky dog ranch. >> they're lucky dogs because they're on their way to being adopted. lucky dog is a heartwarming show seen every saturday morning right here on cbs-3 it stars brandon mcmillan, animal train war mission to rescue maybe trained un adopt recall dogs, takes them into a training facility, turns them into the a lucky pet. he joins me now, i have my teddy, my puppy, teddy, sometimes my teddy bear, too, to talk to us a little bit about training. brandon, so good to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> did little facebook live. this is really informative. talk about the show. kind of like adoption storey? >> it takes you on more of a journey. the show i rescue one dog every episode. i technically give it a second chance at life a lot of the dogs just turned in by the previous owners or a stray
most their life. and from there i take it back to the lucky dog ranch. i assess the dogs, see what they know, more importantly what they don't know f there sometimes they need to be rehabilitated and from there i start training the dog, taylor made to the family, eventually, the dog goes, so sometimes, sometimes the dog serves a major purpose in the family, sometimes the dog is a service dog, or, you know, somebody in the family had a traumatic lost, and the dog is feeling major void. >> interesting. and so your show is wildly popular. but you also now have a new book out? >> i do. >> tell us about that. >> called lucky dog lessons, train your dog in seven days, and the first thing people ask, okay, is it possible to train a dog in seven days? of course it is because dow it on my show every week. and i always say -- >> you're like a master extroidinaire at training. >> i'm no different than everybody else. i just have more mileage under my belt when it comes to training dogs. now, in the book, i explain very, very clearly, that training, there are two steps to training, it is technique
and conditioning. think about marshall art. we learn a technique, how to punch t only takes couple of days to actually learn the technique of the punch. now, the conditioning, that takes a long time. but you already trained to the punch. so technically the dog, you can teach it all seven things in the book. one thing a day. at the end every week all it is, muscle memory now, conditioning. so are they train recall, in seven days? absolutely, yes. >> very cool. >> see, he's trained after five minutes. >> oh, i love teddy, but you talk about also, this is interesting, there are sometimes a missed perception about shelter dogs that maybe they cannot be trained. but you say that is not true? >> no, it is not. that is smug ma, from the 19 50's at this point. stigma that shelter dogs are damaged goods. and the reason i can a test to they're not because i've had a whole entire career of not only training shelter dogs but also breeder bought dogs. i see the same issues in each of them. every shelter doggy work with, they have pretty much neck and neck the same issues as breeder bought dogs. >> very interesting. >> it is a stigma.
>> you've been working with teddy for the last hour or work hanging with teddy, we have a minute left. anything you can teach me in a minute? >> in a minute? oh, that's a tough one. without getting up? >> no. >> but you taught me earlier down, that was good. right? the down is a great technique, if you have out of control dog, the down is like putting the car in park and taking the keys out of ignition, i say if you have out of control dog, team him a down, it is a down, a control command, it is also a stay, all in one command. don't you dare do that. ya, ya, ya. i saw that. >> 's good dog, but he can be a little rambunctious. >> he might need a down. >> he might need a down, but waiting for your treat. like what am i going to get? >> so i thought it was very good, in your book, that you have a lot of tips, a lot of technique, also like contests as far as like the breed of dogs, the age of dogs. >> yes. >> whether from the shelter or - >> variablement always have to take the breed, the age and
history into consideration when training them. and that all makes sense, whenever you're wondering why your dog does what it does, think about the breed. think about the age. think about the history. you have lot of questions answered right there. >> very cool. all right, brandon, thank you so good to see you, and thanks for the training of ted. >> i your welcome. >> i'll invoice you later. >> oh, okay. send it to cbs. you can catch lucky dog every saturday morning at 9:00 right here on cbs-3. we will be right back. stay with us.
