rain, or it smells like it a little outside. there have been a couple little spritzes and showers around the baltimore area. not much. it is not significant at all. a weak cool front is coming in. it is connected to a large-scale storm back in the midwest. that's the problem. the storm front has gotten way detatched from or moved away from the center of the storm. it hasn't got a lot of energy now. you can see spotty energy south of baltimore from the bay south westward across annapolis across charles and st. mary's counties and southern maryland. it is just spotty sprinkles and showers. most of the rain has been across the coast. there have been sprinkles across ocean city in virginia as well. but again, nothing significant. the front is west of us. it will be slowly moving east during the day. we can't totally take the rain out of the forecast, but stick around.

from somewhere else? they say no, it is not possible. it had to have gone in and stayed there. >> police are waiting to determine how the victim died and also learn her identity. meanwhile, authorities are trying to identify a body found in harford county. the victim was found in a drainage ditch off the exit ramp of route seven and palace ski -- polaski highway. the medical examiner is working to find the exact cause of death. >> investigators are urging you to keep a close eye on your account. someone put a skimming device in the branches a.t.m. on i street. the latest from bell air. >> cyber-theft takes seconds to complete and could wipe out a lifetime of your savings. equally frightening, as it is happening, victims have no idea they are being robbed. it is done electronically with a

ohh... how many friends does a person need, sharon ? 'cause i'm thinking 90,000 is 90,000 too many. i can't imagine having too many friends, lewis. oh i can. i open the door to my apartment and 90,000 friends jump out from behind a futon screaming "surprise, happy birthday !" i would be in seventh heaven. i'd be in emergency cardiac surgery. you know a real friend would be giving me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation right now.
>> typhoon parma brought more heavy rain to an area already flooded. it was supposed to make landfall but only delivered a glancing blow. it did deliver tpwhrooding to an area which caused flooding last week which killed 300 people. rescue efforts continue today in indonesia three days after a 7.6 magnitude quake caused massive damage in sumatra. dozens of people died when the hotel collapsed in the city of pudang. researchers are trying to find survivors trapped beneath the rubble. more than 1,000 people have been killed in that region. >> much quieter around here.
we have a cool front trying to come through and it has generated a little bit of rain. not much, just trace amounts. a couple sprinkles and showers along the bay and islands and beaches along ocean city, and a couple of sprinkles and showers, a very light shower on the bay down toward annapolis and into calvert county at this point and st. mary's county. and there is no lightning with this except off the jersey coast. we're seeing a stray lightning bolt showing up on the indicators. also, a few echos just to the northwest of garrett county that might be false echos on the radar. i haven't totally figured out what's going on there because they are way behind the cool front. there might be a couple showers, but i haven't had time to investigate. let's put it that way. the further west you go today, it is going to be much drier. the front is going to be trucking eastward.
let's look at what's going on outside now. we're beginning to see the first light of dawn. it is still cloudy in baltimore. 62 at the airport. inner harbor 6r5. about 10 degrees warmer than it was yesterday at this time. the cloud deck explains some of that. the southerly breezes, light breezes. at the moment, the wind is calm. the predominant wind will be from a southwesterly direction even after the front goes through. yesterday because of all the clouds, it only made it into the low 70's because of highs at the inner airport. 50's in the morning, and only, you know, .800 inch of rain measured. right now 63. kent island 68. at the other end of the bay bridge at annapolis it is 67. middle river 64. college park 66. frederick is only 62. 65 westminister and 65 hagerstown. so there is a line right there across howard county, parts of
carroll and baltimore county. this is essentially the cool front coming in. drier air, more than anything else. although temperatures dropped a bit. fewer clouds out to the west. that also dropped the clouds a bit. here's the satellite image. a little hard to tell, but from where my hand is this way, there are more clouds than out this way. you can see a slight difference in shading. here is the front west of us. it will be moving east. in the afternoon it will only be on the eastern shore. as long as this thing is in the shood and east of it, -- is in the neighborhood, and east of it, we stand ai chance of seeing it. this thing has gotten too far from all that energy. we did talk about the typhoons. this is parma near the northern philippines, and if your screen is wide enough, there is a much stronger typhoon out near anderson air force base out there. here is our situation -- the cool front coming in.
we still could see a shower, especially from the bay eastward today, maybe even a rumble of thunder there. but there is a small chance this front doesn't have a lot of energy. a morning shower 73 to 78 the high. 73 to mild. the morning starts at 50. a lot more sunshine in the picture. 70 the high. ofpble 46. another shower chance coming our way on tuesday, but not a big chance. >> thanks, john. >> a cbs news employee is out of jail and on bond after attempting to black mail davidletterman. he acknowledged on the air he had sexual relationships with female staffers. >> authorities say with the help of late-night talk show host david letterman they foiled a plot to extort $2 million from the comedian. the plot involved robert halderman who was arraigned on grand larceny charges a day
after his arrest. >> new york will not tolerate the co-ergs or extortion of anyone famous or anonymous. >> it was letterman himself who delivered two bombshells on cbs late-night show telling his audience he was a victim. the plot allegedly included plans to reveal letterman's relationships with late-night staffers if he didn't pay. letterman said he found awe note in his car. >> and there's a letter in the package and it says that "i know that you do some terrible, terrible things." >> information letterman took to authorities. then came letterman's speech. all the while the audience nervously laughed.
investigators set up two more meetings in a sting operation. in the last one, the attorney gave the suspect a bogus check designed to bounce. halderman was living at the time with stephanie burkett, one of letterman's long-time assistants. today halderman says there is another side to the case. >> this story is far more complicated than what you heard this afternoon. >> meanwhile police are still trying to figure out an exact motive for the plot. michelle franzen, nbc news. >> stay with us.
