I seventeenth and good morning I'm Dave Taylor -- nearly edition of WWL first news he had there is some thick fog mostly though the worst of the visibility -- being -- and applause on the South Shore right now. Like Procter and actually you can see all the way across a lake -- the folks at the causeway so. Their ego he may be careful is the confinement then match here or there is we hear from mr. meteorologist more about now. Seem to patchy dense fog this morning battling around at least through mid morning. After that begin its -- sun -- then a 20% chance for light showers this afternoon. And mild Temps near -- before today lows tonight will drop to about 58 on the south sort 56 north of the lake. With a little patchy fog than Friday and Saturday looking mild upper seventies both days and each afternoon 10% chance for stray shower. But the Eyewitness News forecast -- I'm meteorologist locked out. Right now the visibility to international airport is 18 of a mile that's not very far at all. And so pretty foggy in -- and -- hostile to the loss over the body carries away some dense fog wet Slidell -- -- -- more than half miles cloudy.

Find your 25 bush jerseys because you may want them tonight and be a good time I'll explain coming up. After we hear all about sports. But saints' sideline reporter Christian -- good morning -- good morning gave the saints have enjoyed blowout wins over the New York Giants in the previous two meetings. Across street in the superdome this Sunday the saints are in New York to battle is human. Which are licking their chops we can we trust you'll play and do this and we understand that. It's a powerful football team the defending world champions saints coach ovitz -- safety Roman Harper was limited in practice yesterday with a rib injury Kobe Bryant scored 29 point. Making him the fifth player in NBA history to score 30001. Career. In a Los Angeles Lakers snapped a two game skid with a 103. 87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets last night and I've put money -- and the hornets did have a halftime lead in this sort. Until six minutes ago in the second quarter of vote we employees. -- of basketball that we. Wanted to play him defending tomorrow night the hornets host the Memphis Grizzlies in the arena NBA commissioner David Stern says the New Orleans Hornets have yet to file. Required paperwork with the league changed the team's name however stern says. He won't object to whatever new name hornets owner Tom Benson might choose because he knows it'll be quote unquote sensible. In the league could expedite the process texts say they like Johnny Denzel is that. Southeastern Conference offensive player of the year while Aggies coach Kevin someone shared coaching on -- SEC coaches also named. South Carolina defensemen did -- clown me at the top defensive player yesterday hall of Famer Barry Larkin says there's no room for steroid users in Cooperstown. The former Cincinnati Reds shortstop told the Associated Press in a phone interview yesterday that players who cheat should receive baseball's highest individual honor. Barry Bonds Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa all up for selection for the first time. And all three have been linked to performance enhancing drugs today at four on WWL it's sports talk with Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia featuring the saints players show live. From looters in Metairie with CT Raphael bush I'm Kristian -- advantage early look at. -- well -- to me this is a perfect opportunity to. Raphael bush being in the players the saints players over at -- in -- and the fact that he wears number 25 and his last name is bush is first and last the initials are RB yet and its treatment that there's an -- bush on the -- is just said bush for a 45 for red Reggie Bush Reggie Bush is -- is that many people bought. Well now he's got the same number the same last name so. If you ever warn you bush your bush jerseys since Reggie laughed put on tonight. Go on active shooters. Go have a good time enjoy yourself meet Rafael bush. And say yeah yeah winter. And eighty ninth. He's had a good pass defended he's actually got him on defense last week government I saw that. And the previous weekend is primarily -- special -- he had that muffed punt recovery. So he's been making his name known a little bit more. Let me ask you this the saints in general. You were taught us the last few weeks that the swagger was back they'd gone on the winning streak they'd pull themselves out of that known for holding them back to 500. And you saw the swagger from the saints in the locker room and practices over on line. He's seen that same swagger now that they've lost two games in a row and really they -- when the rest of their games have no -- -- the playoffs at all. CN. You know similar confidence and in their confidence is on wavered. In terms of you know they still believe that they get -- post season they still believe they can win. The remaining four games and you know they they know their -- at times beat anybody and then but if they don't you know take care of their business and excuse the way they're supposed to. Clearly beat and beat Italy like they did though last Thursday night. Today they have the confidence but do they have the -- I don't know and -- -- and then that's obviously just a judgment call this swagger meters it was gonna turn on and as the blueprint there and if parents with a swagger level is today. I wish -- were that easy Namibian happen. Probably is if not we might be above makes it might it develop one. The web broadcast about it in and talk to me about it obviously illegal that yeah maybe there on the cusp of the swagger. Yeah I had to bring that thank you Christian tactic about point five minutes more sports here at WWL. And -- them in fact I'm all right some people are sharing them. There text about where the fog is thick and where that there's no -- and all of terrorism and those with you next and -- people are texting us about the fact that. -- -- Became legal today in the state of Washington. Also voted in Colorado legalized it would still against. A law so take a look at all that and your forecast. Right after. I've played 5 good morning I'm -- colonized or get the text messages today 7870 people telling us there is very thick fog in -- parts of west Metairie closer to the tenor line clearly and in the plot so that appears to be the worst of it but oddly. There is no fog on the causeway. And no fog it all one tech and as it's as crystal clear in south Slidell and across the twin span so. Does a little bit of -- usual fog set up this morning where we're seeing it in spots. But places where we normally would expect to see -- we don't see any at all so just be careful out there and be aware that you could come upon some thick fog. Very quickly as you make your way out and about let's get to forecast from the Eyewitness News forecast center. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds as we head into the after -- today 20% chance for just a straight shower. And mild Temps near 74 -- tonight patchy fall once again rolling and lows dropping into the mid fifties Friday and Saturday looking mild mid seventies and each afternoon about a 10% chance for a stray shower. From the Eyewitness News forecast setter I -- urologist Clark knocked out visibility. Quarter of a mile or last in La plaza right now 18 of a mile at the airport in Canada where it's 62 degrees. In Slidell the other just reporting light fog. Also bell chase lights fog right now. So they go Canada lay of the land on the -- about the way it's cloudy and 54 degrees text messages and 87870 what does. It's not Bob did its pot smoke coming out of the last man.
