WX:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE WE'VE BEEN KIND OF WATCHING THIS SYSTEM WORKING ITS WAY ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW IT'S OUT EAST DROPPING QUITE A BIT OF RAIN. YEAH IT REALLY IS. IT'S A SLOW MOVER THROUGH. SO A LOT OF THE HIGH AMOUNTS OF RAIN JUST BECAUSE OF HOW LONG ITS LASTING IN PLACES. BUT SOME OF THOSE THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE EASTERN SEABOARD COULD STILL BE HEAVY ONCE AGAIN TODAY. WE SAW A LOT OF SEVERE WEATHER TWO DAYS AGO ALONG THIS FRONT. SOME SEVERE WEATHER YESTERDAY AND WE'LL PROBABLY SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE TODAY ALTHOUGH PROBABLY A LITTLE BIT LESS. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO START THE DAY MID ATLANTIC STATES INTO THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES... AND THAT WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY MOVE OFF TO EAST. AGAIN A SLOW MOVING SYSTEM HERE...THESE THREE AREAS OF LOW PRESSURE…THIS IS THE UPPER LEVEL LOW. WE'LL ALL KIND OF COMBINE AS WE HEAD INTO THE NEXT TWO TO THREE DAYS INTO THE A BIG STORM SYSTEM NORTHEAST OF THE GREAT LAKES. SECONDARY SYSTEM YOU CAN SEE CAUSING SOME RAIN INTO THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE ROCKIES AND IT ACTUALLY AS IT CAME THROUGH THIS MORNING IT PRODUCED SOME RAIN IN CENTRAL AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND YOU'LL SEE THAT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS OUT THERE. THE NEXT SYSTEM MAY CATCH YOU IN ANOTHER DAY AND A HALF ALONG THE NORTHEASTERN, THE NORTHWEST COAST I SHOULD SAY OF THE UNITED STATES. NOW THERE'S TOMORROW MORNING YOU CAN SEE THE THREE AREAS OF LOW PRESSURE. THE BACK ONE THE UPPER LEVEL LOW STILL CAUSING SOME LIGHT SHOWERS IN THE OHIO VALLEY GREAT LAKES EVEN THE TENNESSEE VALLEY. THERE'S EVEN SOME HEAVIER SHOWERS AND EVEN SOME THUNDERSTORM IN NEW ENGLAND MOSTLY OFF SHORE AS YOU CAN SEE FOR THE MID ATLANTIC STATES. HEADING INTO THE DAY ON THURSDAY OR THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW, YOU CAN SEE THE RAIN CONTINUES FROM THE EASTERN LAKES, THE EASTERN OHIO VALLEY INTO THE NORTHEAST WITH THAT SLOW MOVING SYSTEM. THE NEXT ONE REALLY HAS VERY LITTLE MOISTURE ALONG IT. BUT THIS WILL START TO SPREAD SOME MORE RAIN INTO OREGON AND WASHINGTON AS WE HEAD TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK. THERE'S THE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATE OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. AGAIN SOME HEAVIER THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THIS FRONT OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS THEN...AND THERE WILL STILL BE SOME OF THAT BUT A LOT OF IT IS JUST BECAUSE OF THE LONG PERIOD OF RAIN YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST, EASTERN GREAT LAKES. CONTINUE TO SEE SOME AREAS CONTINUE TO GET A COUPLE INCHES OF RAINFALL. THERE'S THE TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON. LOTS OF 50'S OHIO VALLEY AND GREAT LAKES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY MAINLY BECAUSE OF CLOUD COVER…80'S ARE GONE ALL THE WAY TO THE GULF COAST. ONLY PARTS OF TEXAS AND FLORIDA ARE SEEING 80'S. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT A WIDESPREAD AREA OF 40'S AND 50'S BUT IT DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE ANY FREEZING TEMPERATURES ANYWHERE. BUT 50'S ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE GULF COAST AND THEN HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW AFTERNOON STILL COOL ACROSS THE OHIO VALLEY AND GREAT LAKES, WARMING UP A LITTLE BIT OVER THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND IT'S ALL BECAUSE OF THAT CUT OFF AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE OHIO VALLEY. THAT WILL BE VERY SLOW BUT BY THE WEEKEND IT WILL FOLD INTO THE UPPER LEVEL LOW STILL IN SOUTHEASTERN CANADA BEFORE THAT MOVES EAST AS WELL. ANOTHER KIND OF SHOT OF COLD AIR COMING IN OVER THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK FOR THE GREAT LAKES AND THE NORTHEAST... THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. WE'LL HEAD OUT WEST FIRST OF ALL TO REDDING CALIFORNIA CLOUDY AND COOL. TIMES OF RAIN…HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 69...PRATT KANSAS MOSTLY SUNNY AND COMFORTABLY AFTERNOON HIGH AROUND 74…AND OHIO MOSTLY CLOUDY A BRIEF SHOWER OR TWO HIGH OF 62…
ITC MUSEUM WINGS:
WHEN YOU SEE IRON WORKERS OR WINDOW WASHERS DOING THEIR WORK SO CLOSE TO THE SKY, YOU WONDER HOW MUCH GUTS IT TAKES TO TAKE THAT FIRST STEP. THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR PAINTERS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'RE TOUCHING-UP SPOTS ON A UNIQUELY DESIGNED MUSEUM IN MILWAUKEE. CARRIE ANTLFINGER HAS OUR STORY - ABOUT A WING AND A PRAYER.
