winds of 50, 60 miles an hour. as we're looking at tropical storm isaac, still making its way across the caribbean, south of hispaniola, not a bhoel lot of damage there. it is starting to look a little bit better now. strengthened just a little bit from where it was earlier. pressure at 1001 millibars. it's still fairly weak, but starting to get its act together. on this tract, takes it right other eastern cuba and then potentially into the gulf coast states. i think we'll be watching this one. i'll give you my thoughts on this one where i think it might go and what we could expect around here. that forecast has changed somewhat. you don't want to miss it. >> a bizarre break in at a d.c. bank of america. surveillance video shows a burglar wearing a hazardous material suit climbing through the wall. the suspect got inside through a vacant store front.

regrets? . no, i don't regret anything. >> i would say that you have had a wonderful life, sir, to have lived 105 years on this earth. we salute you. we congratulate you. and, mr. clark, we congratulate you for spending a couple minutes. we salute you and happy birthday. >> caller: thank you. >> how sweet. 105. that's a lot of history. >> and lives by himself as a caretaker comes in maybe twice a week. but he is still his own man doing his own thing. you've got to honor that. that's absolutely marvelous. >> he's a lucky man. >> we should be so lucky. >> yes, we should. meanwhile, down in the tropics, how lucky are they right now? >> now know what, so far, so good for the people. i mean, most of the island, not a whole lot going on. and neither is hiss pan owe la. that's the one island that could get hit the hardest.
as far as we're concerned. we're looking towards the weekend. we've got something going on here this weekend on saturday? oh, yeah, that's the redskins home opener. you may get a little wet. we saw a high temperature of 9 9 drs. e degrees. i think we've got another great day for friday but then the weekend goes downhill pretty quick. 77 the temperature out there. everybody into the 70s for the most part. 68 in frederick. and also look at culpepper coming in at 68 degrees. and tomorrow morning, another great start. we'll call it a fantastic friday. i really think it eegs going to be quite nice out there. no rain to talk about on storm team four. radar right now clear. and that's the way it's going to stay. at least for 24 hours and then we'll see the rain come in. look at the clouds makie ining way up through the south.
that storm system will move right up the coast. well, that nice weather sticks around for tomorrow. but notice where the rain is by tomorrow night. virginia beach, maybe even close to the ocean city area and then watch how it just moves right on in here late friday night into the day on saturday. saturday morning could be fairly wet. saturday afternoon could be fairly wet. and then i do think we dry out late in the day on saturday. so the red skins day could start off a little bit wet but may actually dry out. that's just the initial here. i think we could see this area of low pressure during rain even into the day on sunday. now, let's focus on isaac making its way across the caribbean. it has not been very well organized. starting to get attacked together, i think just a little bit. but just when it gets its act together, it's going to move across hispaniola. that is not a favorable place for a tomorrow to storm to be.
the hurricane krenter puts it only at 50 miles per hour. that's when it can intensify. and then potentially, a hurricane and maybe a stronger hurricane, category one, maybe category two around new orleans, over towards tallahassee. we are going to watch this very, very closely. the latest computer models have been keeping this farther west and keeping this away, too. morning lows, down to about 6 a e 5 in leesburg. next couple of days, highs only around 2 on saturday. a high of 84 on sunday. 90 on monday, 90 on tuesday, but not bad at all next week. here comes the umbrellas. >> hurricane starts at 75, right?
. >> i think so. it's always kind of sad when these guys try to string along their career. he wanted the stats snishlly and then said you know what, i'm good. cp is history. clinton portis returned eed to redskins park today to offici officially call it a career. like riggo, he was also an entertainer off the field. today, though, about closure. not clowning around.
the red skin staff members pour sbood the main auditorium to bid portis adieu. coming back to redskins park was something he needed and wanted to do. >> life as a redskin was more meaningful than doing anything else. it was more meaningful than playing with another team and getting sent away just to say i told you so and continue my career. if i couldn't do it here, i really didn't want to do it. when i left, i realized this was the organization i loved. this was the place i loved. having the tunt to come back, it was high risk, it was the best thing that could hatch. >> he still has that huge runningback neck, like a battering ram. what was that? a 22 inch neck? he was powerful and one of the best pass blockers we've ever
seen in that position. >> oh, yeah, he used to hurt people. >> line backers did not like coming in as a rush pass. >> i can't think of another one off the top of my head. he did it quite often. of the current crop of redskins runningbacks, they'll both miss pre-season game number 3 against the colts. tim hightower expected to play for the first time since tearing his acl 9 months ago. skins and kocolts at 4:00. tonight, ravens hosting the jaguars. baltimore up 3-0. we're going to see this a lot this year. joe flacco. give him 6. ravens up 10-0. flacco is jacked, but he wasn't done yet. down the middle of the field, the former turk picks up 32 of his 103 yards on the night. that led to another touchdown.
flacco threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns in a 48-17 raven's romp. attention fantty football owners. this guy, aaron rogers is ready to roll. rogers drops back, doesn't see anybody open, so he keeps it by himself. the only disappointment here, he didn't have his title belt touchdown celebration. that's apparently disappeared. still in the first quarter, soo did i. rogers ding it again. a five-yard touchdown runs sekt of the night for rogers. the pack is going to win 27-13. that's over the bangles. that was one of the great touchdown celebrations and it's gone. we've got to get him to do it again. again. >> ravens starters in the third
but nothing is free. obama is raiding $716 billion from medicare, changing the program forever. taxing wheelchairs and pacemakers. raising taxes on families making less than one hundred twenty thousand dollars. free healthcare comes at a very high price. the romney-ryan plan will restore medicare funding and protect and strengthen the program for the next generation.
