5:08 am
i always feed in the fall. but, it's the best time. feed your lawn in the fall. the fall feeding makes all the difference in the world. what the fall feeding does is build the roots.. that's when the roots sorta want nutrition. i give my lawn scotts winterguard. it's like a root building machine. it builds your lawn from the roots up. next year you get this! the stronger the roots, the stronger the lawn. all year long. the best time to feed is when it will do the most good. there's no substitute for the fall feeding, trust me. it is the best thing you can do for your lawn. i use scotts winterguard. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message. the real andy harris. buried in his website - a promise to replace the tax code with a 23% sales tax and eliminate the mortgage

5:12 am
naturally. we can thank the moon and the graphic stational pull for that and the wind shifting out of the west and northwest helping to push the water and drain it out into the atlantic. that's good news. any high wood shu should be receding in herry as the rain pushed out. but look at this. parkville over 9 inches. our storm center weathernet highlighting 6.9 in bel air but 7.76 in havre de grace and 5 1/2 in dundalk to almost 9 in pasadena and eastern shore with a 6 inch rainfall tally. winds gusting over 20 miles per hour and this is just since midnight. we have had tropical storm force winds at points yesterday. and now we pull in the cool are air where it's 57 in westminster. still holding at 06 and dundalk and pasadena. flood warning until 5:456789 temperatures climbing to 71 and we will see clearing which means the sun and breeze should help improve things this afternoon. let's check out on the traffic and see what kim brown has. >> reporter: i have a lot of mess over here.
5:13 am
we have a whole lot of flooding and a lot of debris in the roadway that is going to be in the process of being cleaned up right now. hopefully, we will be out of the way before the morning rush really gets started. we will look at the picture in perry hall that we have of the sink hole that sherrie johnson they had the searching hole that has bel air rolled road closed at necker avenue in both directions as sherrie mentioned they have detours mentioned they have detowers posted so try to avoid the area. we have lots of road closures. so let's continue around in baltimore county middle river eastern avenue closed at earls road for flooding. could be ysville down trees and rosedale route 40 at 66 closed due to high water. and edgewood philidelphia road closed between emmerton and mountain road because of flooding past winters run road and glen bernie and dorsey between central and baltimore

5:18 am
it was meant to raise money for feed the chirr and number listed on the box was supposed to take you to the donation hotline. >> i find it kind of odd that no one caught it since the box has been out, but, also because you know, of it misprinting on obviously so many boxes. >> well the football player is in any trouble for the mixup says the cereal company and they will fix the problem. it's 5:18 right now. merger with continental and united airlines is expected to become final today. continental headquarters in downtown houston, texas, workers take pictures with the continental logo. under the merger the airline name will be united. and the new logo will use continental's colors blue and gold and white with a white globe on the plane's tail. beverly elliot says that she worked at continental for 27 years and she got emotional when she was talking about all the huge changes that are happening. >> how does it feel?

5:20 am
storm system finally pulling out of here. looks like remanent rain in southern virginia, but overall, we have got this main batch of moisture. storm pushing on top of new york city trailing frontal boundary off the coast and pling away from ocean city as well. and the wind around the low pressure starting to shift out of the northwest. and it will tap into the clearing and build that in as we head through the day i pulled this back wider. what we are watching is as the storm continues to pull up towards new york and new england and their heavy rain is this morning and not even into boston. but they will have problems by lunchtime. we will get the system out of here. thing is we have got this cold pull in the jet stream that will ooze in our direction. it is helping to shift the pattern off toward the east. but could there be another storm on the way? there's an indication that this pattern gets stuck and may actually reverse course and head back at us early next week. check out the forecast model, watching that rain this afternoon pushing towards boston and down east maine we get clearing in here. cloud on the eastern shore
5:21 am
breaking up as well. clear skies and cool temperatures tonight. next frontal boundary may help to enhance the upper level system to the spin and get stuck and then we will watch moisture coming up from the south and that tries to make a return and may combine across maryland heading through early next week. the cloud roll in i think we are dry race for the cure on sunday morning. but showers try to roll in during the afternoon and that could make for a very wet pattern. once again, in early next week, we will have cool temperatures. 71 today. gradual clearing. baltimore westbound. the breeze at 10 to 20 miles per hour. overnight, we are a little chilly. in fact temperatures should back down to 48 degrees. and we have got our start into the weekend where we should see a fair amount of sunshine but look for highs actually that should be into the 60s. 73 maybe optimistic and we will have the exten outlook in a -- he can tened outlook in a couple -- extended outlook in a kut couple minutes. >> reporter: we hit harford --
