Thank you you know where we were either studio which I'm sitting. And you get to tell me that it's gonna keep rain yeah unfortunately the yet today about a 60% chance again. So yeah -- some areas got some pretty heavy downpours even had a couple of flash flood warnings. Some areas didn't see a lot of at all so that's kind of how it is today -- I think we will see some pockets of some heavy rain moving into today. Yang Yang yesterday after an accident the house about three in the afternoon and the sun is shining. Yeah and it kept signing till about seven at night before I finally got some rain for the first time yesterday but. Other places I was looking at the radar we're getting -- and that's again the pattern for today and tomorrow. Exactly you got it says it's not rating at your house you know I don't. You know that you can't of course -- question where's the rain you know look on radar and see where it's going on beauty you know that that chance -- -- is going to be they're everywhere and we are still under a flash flood watch. So that means some flooding rain possible. Rights of the ground is saturated in many places some heavy rain is coming again circulating around the world that it won't go away. And some people could if letting other people that she's on time. Got an -- and that's -- and tomorrow and Sunday we finally get rid of some of the. Chances yeah I think Sunday we have the lower rain chances but I did keep it about 30% on Sunday so we may see just a few more spotty showers and thunders too. -- folks hopefully you're one of the lucky ones dude doesn't see the rain over the weekend but that he could be one of the ones who ends up. Driving through floodwaters are attempting to anyway all right take -- let me ask your question. Now we've got on from the committee did that final this morning. The headline -- Boston Police hunting for the home invading stickler. Yes stickler alert police are hunting a man who breaks up homes and watches women's sleep. Or -- their feet. There have been at least ten confirmed sightings of a creepy intruder dubbed the Boston stickler. Who many in the neighborhood has long believed to be an urban myth but now you know it's all too real. -- had at least three students there reported a run in with that particular. On the same night. Last month. Boston Police say this is no man's and there are warning people that this guy is out there and -- he's been described as about five foot seven men. Where is dark clothing and a hoodie. And breaks and a women's homes. Often just stares at them and sometimes people there the and seriously frightening. Spamming I'd rather get a break in and robbed the place. Then blanket and watched. Somebody's -- I'd imagine I'm watching my wife my daughter's sleeping in and tackling their feet and get some boos start to realize. That's really and can you imagine hearing that story haters I tickled people's yeah -- like there's enough out of yeah it doesn't act and that's just something people make up on FaceBook. They're that it meets that is serving Austin police say it's so real and obviously begs the question. A pretty huge. Man how could he do that thank Alexander have a great weekend yankees' Alexander grant -- direct Eyewitness News forecast. And economists now. And again right that. Steve Geller how can -- -- sports.

Then it's exciting weekend -- you tigers boosting southeastern at 2 o'clock in the first game of the that route regional of course the NCAA baseball tournament tiger's red hot right now winners of -- straight. Just get it done at the plate and get it done on the mound. -- great matchup though SE if you play. And and make it certainly -- kind of there style of baseball with a with an aggressive -- from southeast. Well it's obvious sense but -- on the mound they're put they're throwing everything they got it this first game -- you having to kind of pace themselves -- they're expecting that. Need some of their best pitching later in the regional -- -- like -- -- chances of getting out of this region on hosting a super regional. Like a lot mean that the team honestly that I think maps of the best of them though. They won't probably I'll likely see it till tomorrow night in the winner's bracket its quirks that you -- southeast of Purdue beat Houston that's team that. As the pitching to at least. Put themselves in the same ballpark as LSU tigers don't think it's quite as strong as LSU. But they'd they'd they have the pitching in today's College Baseball. Meant to get one picture that hot. And the bats go cold all you need only need these days to a three runs and -- if you victory but the way Ella she's been swinging the bats lately. So -- last eight games it scored seven.
