Let's get that workweek forecast. On this Monday mainly cloudy skies at 50% chance for those downpours especially this afternoon and evening. Look for highs right around ninety tonight dropping down about 76. Right back up to 92 tomorrow with a 40% chance for downpours. Wednesday a 40% chance says well with heights of 91. From the pinpoint forecast center I'm meteorologist Clark. -- a few clouds that there's 78 degrees at the airport in Canada Slidell mostly cloudy and 72 degrees sports time now on WWL also that we had on up to West Virginia. And they Appalachian Mountains where the saints get back to work after the weekend black and gold scrimmage. The morning happy Monday everyone rave reviews continue for saints rookie receiver Brandon cooks -- training camp the voice of the saints Jim Henderson says it's easy to compare not only his speed but also the amount of excitement around coaxed away and Reggie Bush first arrived in New Orleans. Electric zero to sixty in a second mercurial that's sort although sort of adjectives that went toward Reggie go to our brand and and to -- you look at Brandon -- who looks fast when he standing. We got a little -- the football last night as the giants beat the bills seventeen to thirteen at the hall of -- game to open pre season play rookies highlighted the night for the G men running back Andre Williams scored on a three yard run -- receiver -- Washington secured the win with a 73 yard touchdown catch up the right sideline from -- massive in the fourth quarter both LSU -- Tulane football opened training camp today despite having landed the top recruit in the nation in -- -- for net WWL dot com columnist -- -- says expect the tigers to lean heavily on senior running backs Kenny -- and Terrence McGee is. -- it'll put the ball fluttered for a hands and stage go witness -- Tiger Woods hurt his back during the final round of the WGC Bridgestone invitational and withdrew after hitting his tee shot on the ninth hole. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and I first pre season game Friday for the saints yes -- drew play. He would play in the black gold scrimmage what's up -- that will last eve live from West Virginia right after this. It is for drivers coming in from Gramercy toward applause all lanes now open on the interstate after earlier fatal accident I'm Dave Keller at the early edition of WWL prisoners at 525 on here in New Orleans at 625. Received galleries and West Virginia. So you got an hour leg up on Steve's here -- roar and and ready to go but Drew Brees was not in the black gold scrimmage. Is through okay and do you think he'll play Friday in the first pre season game at the -- -- definitely shocking to hear coach Sean Payton even volunteered that information to a so willingly that breeze was how. Of the scrimmage with their no leaks traded -- dated date. I'll wolf -- doubt definitely more today around 3 PM central when the saints take the practice field again have a late start today. I do expect -- to be in action on the practice field this week as for pre season game number one. I wouldn't doubt if they held him out just because a precautionary reason I would imagine -- though being. Active in the second game for sure but. I don't believe it's anything serious we'll have to keep an -- on CP is back on the practice field today but I definitely understand everyone's concern with these star quarterback. And hearing that he has an abdominal strain. And you know that would affect his throwing. And mess of the oblique is somewhat down in the valley is that which town -- you know it was funny because just last week. Someone asked about another injury in -- that we don't ask passengers during the pre season next question. But yet he volunteered that drew has an oblique strain I guess when -- Drew Brees it's our -- Keep those things quiet and when he didn't show up on the field. For the black -- -- there was some nervousness until after the game with -- on I was going on but. Yeah I guess I'd rather drew sit out the pre season to make sure he's perfectly fine if that's what it takes. To get absolute right and I. I think it like I said it was odd because later on in the press conference after the scrimmage. Sean Payton was once again asked about cornerback Champ Bailey who hasn't even been on the field he's just been missing in action as we've been saying but. And he he jumped on the reporters saying we don't talk about injuries you were here yesterday you can ask me again Monday very you know how we're waiting. -- I'll tell you about drew but I won't tell you about -- Him all right thanks people liked -- about point five minutes to more sports here on WWL more on the sentinels -- -- -- relatives they start practice today in Baton Rouge your forecast. Hit or miss showers and storms again today but like yesterday if you could be on the strong to have beside look for 50% chance later today with highs of ninety. Go to but 921 Tuesday that'll put up 40% chance and for mainly the afternoon. I don't Wednesday another 40% chance for storms with highs of 91. From the pinpoint forecast center I'm meteorologist -- about itself. Cloudy 78 the airport in -- cloudy and 72 inside out relative humidity 90%. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this fourth of August 2014. Pairs of big. Force from moving ahead will make it through Monday and will be kind of like a rugby charge yet now they -- walking -- them. Now almost like guardians. Parties -- -- guardians.

It was like that aired his dropped about 510 breezy cool lot outflow boundary and on -- in the backyard just soaking it up before the rains and that was that I am doing that's right that's that's -- India. I can't wait for the for it and -- and that tropical storm birth so what's the latest. With that you know it's still no threat really to any one at this point it's gonna pass between Bermuda and the East Coast it's a little bit stronger at this morning. But it is forecast to become a weak hurricanes that's not surprising -- about seventy miles per hour it's just around the Bahamas. It's gonna curve off towards the northeast so again really no threat to anyone at this point may become -- look closer at coastal Canada in the long run. As it weakens by the weekend that out we're looking over -- pretty here along the gulf. And not enough -- the -- announced that track that like in analog and I want -- more of it by the way the guys -- master control but on my screen. Before FaceBook. Which people happy at the end MySpace. I'm bright I never had a if you have a MySpace -- how everybody has won you know over that and more about it. -- ever went on every. Now. Creeped out there.

Happy birthday. -- -- -- -- direct Eyewitness News forecast up to West Virginia connect to find out what the thing to do and as they get ready for their. First pre season game. Come Friday ul and LSU tigers start training camp today so the Greenway up that ballot folks it's football in the -- 554 Dave you know and here in the Crescent City. And nestled in the Appalachian Mountains Steve Geller good morning and again there. Go there they -- well. Do you think through practices that three -- time this afternoon when the -- at the practice field after a day off on Sunday. Well and also technically had all Saturday to succeed in you know work with the guys so I think after Saturday Sunday all of that -- leading up to a leader practice. In the day today here in West Virginia. That Truby back impacted on the field I think Sean Payton B eight being so willing to offer that information. I can't be serious though. I would expect her to be back on the field today in all all worries or concerns to be squashed. Apple will find out this afternoon on sports -- right here on WW well I am FM and back down. The LSU tigers -- time showed up for training camp yesterday today the first practice. He would tell us a couple of other than nine -- sportscast that we should temper our expectations but the tigers and number thirteen in the first pre season Paul I got to look at plane number fourteen. Wisconsin opened the season. There must be some reasonable expectations that bad to be in the top 25 any time is. No definitely not I think the ranking was I was surprised just because I felt very generous for the tigers since there is so much. Of a youth movement and inexperience on this water right now. Especially the offensive side of the ball we know -- met burger -- Beckham Jarvis -- -- Jeremy hill all are for the offense alt top contributors. But you have and -- unsettled situation -- quarterback between Brandon Harris and Jennings deputy Jennings. And that's going to be the biggest question at this point and also a wide receiver. You just have one returning guy from last year Trayvon -- other than that it's a bunch of freshman so the past people really struggle I think. Off the bat and baby gets going I think. A ten win season is. To be -- -- and at worst team easy for its funny how far we've come because -- -- open at a pre season thirteen and you're expecting a double digit winning season and that could be a disappointment in not fighting for a national championship year in and year out thank you Steve we'll talk in about fifteen minutes. With more sports from West Virginia here on WWL your forecast here in New Orleans. On this Monday look for clouds increase seen especially into the afternoon so pretty warm and humid 92 day.
