11:19 pm
here. that was one system. we have more clouds moving in from the west. and we have a couple of systems coming together, one of which is the system from texas, inundating them with rain. the moisture coming out of the gulf. and this the system, in minneapolis, you see the spin, coming together over our area. first the moisture is here tomorrow. so taking you through tomorrow first. now 8:0 a.m., maybe a couple of showers in parts of the area but most of us dry. notice even during the afternoon, most of us on the dry side. we do see a lot of cloud cover. maybe a little bit of sun. but around 7:00, a better chance of seeing a shower. only a 30% chance of rain. 11:00 tomorrow night, when we have the best chance. now take a look at this. hour by hour tomorrow, i think we'll be okay. 71 at 7:00 a.m. 78 at 10:00 a.m. 84 at around 4:00 in the afternoon. but watch at what happens on sunday. on sunday we get some showers and storms early and then we get a little bit of a break. if we get some sunshine during
11:20 pm
3:00, that is how we could get some severe weather. and watch what happens during the afternoon, 5:00 or 6:00, a line of storm develops and this line could be strong. possibly severe. we mentioned earlier we're in an enhanced risk for severe weather and that means the storm prediction center thinks we'll see a good chance of storms. that is something we're watching for. 84 on saturday. walling sunday a weather alert day for the potential for the storms. and let's go over the threat one more time. 85 for a high. the warmer we get, the better chance we have of severe weather. high winds is the biggest threat and besides heavy rain -- heavy rain and possible for flash flooding is there. hail and even a low risk of tornados. so again, this is something we'll be watching closely. tom will be in all weekend long to help you out with that. 84 on monday. monday looking beautiful. not just nice, but we're going to see low humidity on monday. cool start to tuesday morning but then tuesday afternoon looks good. and look at wednesday, after another front moves through, temperatures only in the 70s. with sun. so we are

11:27 pm
camden yards and that cuts the new york lead to just one. we skip to the seventh inning, tied at five and runners at the corners for machado and adam jones comes in to score and the orioles win 6-5. and in soccer, the copa america opener out in northern california. big game and colombia didn't waste any time. and the thundering finish and that makes it 1-0 for colombia. and slow start for the u.s. and this is bad news and called for a handball and this guys name is spelled james rodriguez but they just call you -- [ inaudible ]. late in this game down 2-0 to colombia. and one more note before we get out of here, serena williams will go for her fourth french open singles title tomorrow morning at 9:00 as she
