That to you by the way it just came in from Metairie. They've got two planes now open it's starting on a -- all the way cute Carrollton the bad news is a couple of people who. One it really speed up as soon as they open that second plane crashed into it. There's a crash right at the I ten X ten when it's off to the right but it was enough to back things.

Especially -- Over an accident began his comments standing outside of arm man standing outside of his far -- pieces of car all over the interest and the guys 10610 -- that's up. Add that way. -- and 450. GA and you bet it's just a larger markets worsened now I mean nobody was hurt -- out -- again everybody's fine. But they pulled over not always the shoulder just in the cones and they're trying to pick up accounts I think. If you're coming from Metairie in the city just slowed down to get -- -- because these people did not make it -- Traffic. To. We got out of saints play -- -- -- -- -- wanted to talk about people driving too -- -- ago right in this story from it's -- hands that -- -- you have some cars now are offering new device and the -- -- the -- ideal way to describe but. This device that allows you to slow your kids down -- -- that you as a parent. In some vehicles. Are now being given the option of setting -- maximum speed for the car and another -- to limit the volume. On the radio. So they can't turn their radio up past a certain point all what's Alpharma is not. -- their teens discipline and paying attention while they're driving and not crashing cars. I think I blew out my parents speakers in the bloom out and I -- blue law turned it all the way out you have. Used to take the air cleaner off on dad's Buick and and then read that gave the the old car. Kind of and accurately reflect and had a Turbo wanted to at least our imagination. And -- -- we could use some of those southerners. You know the slow us down here's my -- I'll probably setting the limits on the radio line. If you set that limit on how -- your kids car -- ago. It just seems to me there are some circumstances where you can if you need to speed up. They appear on the interstate. And there's someone merging in there about to hit junior Joyce's slam on the brakes sometimes -- gallon for gas it to get away from a bad situation. Sometimes you wanna speed up and if you have the -- -- -- -- seventy and maybe they got to go 75 to get out of the way of a car that's merging on. And their only after the slam on the brakes the guy behind him -- them out of it seems to interest me when -- -- maybe senator about hundred. It's gone on and most cars now have a governor -- shut down under anyway yeah it is literally turned the engine off when he gets 200 miles now the safety feature just in case. Them and gone wrong with you -- Your read on this -- device not not so hot I don't know I'm kind of -- And text sedate them be them. You -- the saints and it the last tree he. Hit the ball. -- I think is not a Kelly shot rubber ball we'll talk more about that. And thank you sir that it fifteen minutes efforts it is going to be well I am adamant that count. We will talk about that -- kind of game tonight with Steve Geller coming up next is the game and it's really important to those guys around the bubbles if they can make this team. By the start line. That would be real football. And but we'll talk about that was Steve gallon next to your forecast. And talk about more about that was us anywhere between mall nice surprise that many malls not just the -- in Canada many malls across the country. Our CN businesses just leave by the droves because they can't compete with the Internet talk about them more after the WWL happy Friday. I've got my date with Angela at 1 o'clock this afternoon if you wanted to -- as we -- would appreciate it everyone is welcome. We'll be talking about what's trending today at 1 o'clock again going to be WL am FM. And comeback today about the way -- national day calendar tells us. The today is national cherry turnovers day. And I liked it its -- not just one national cherry turnover day. It's national cherry turnovers day because he after make -- cherry turnovers and you know with the flaky crust and just a little bit of the -- Drizzle on the top it its sweet icing. Just a little bit too much in need just one of your forecast for today. Heat and humidity continue today look for -- close to 91 degrees a mix of sunny clouds overhead and about a 30% chance. For a few spotty showers or thunderstorms this afternoon. Tonight at 20% chance and tomorrow will update to about 50%. For a few scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly in the afternoon highs around ninety degrees. Looking ahead to Saturday looks a little on the weather side. A fifty to 60% chance for some scattered showers and storms and highs around 89. From the pinpoint forecast center I'm meteorologist Alexandra cramp bird. Cloudy both sides of the -- now 79 at the airport in -- 76 the National Weather Service office in Slidell no surprise that it's muggy with a relative humidity. At nine B 1% I'm Dave Cohen at the early edition of WWL first news barrier from coming in from Metairie or any points west of the city limits of New Orleans. I would continue to take airline coming in for the next -- fifteen to twenty minutes or so. Because they do have that overnight construction that wasn't scheduled to be picked up till 530 then it was a crash right at the I 106 tenths split that's been moved up to the right. Bottom line is it's going to be a slow go from -- ball until you get Q -- roads. Just my little bit of advice. Another bit of advice is don't expect real football tonight in the super. It's going to be the scrubs battling -- -- you can cling to -- -- bottom wrongs of the roster for your New Orleans Saints coach. Well it's the fourth pre season games. I don't know -- columns drugs. Hey these guys are making a whole lot more -- that we. If they make the roster you're right. By then -- you know these guys are fighting for maybe some time on special teams and may be for a spot on the bad trend. Raymond also be backup quarterback job as well the group. -- Who hopefully that person never sees the feel most are holding for kicks right there and -- -- play at all tonight Drew Brees take the field even for the first snap. I highly doubt just as he looked so sharp in that third pre season contacted looked like there was any rust factor with him despite missing time with the oblique strain. Let him get more rest enjoy time with the maple will be on the silent so on the debate will be in the super go with -- -- now two days old I don't Brandan began to -- -- to the game apartment so yeah I think drew will be given the night off and just -- in coaching -- might be calling plays for the. The quarterback Steve -- was sports folks on this Friday local morning everyone pre season play wraps up across the NFL tonight in the saints are in the superdome to take on the Baltimore Ravens. While the majority of starters won't see action this team means a lot to players who are fighting for a spot on the 53 man roster just ask quarterback Ryan Griffin. For guys like me that the first thing you guys sounds kind of our Super Bowl bizarre season that now so. It's a chance to go around them yourself and get better.

And -- out to him this is the super ball. And I talked about. Certain jobs clinging to the bottom wrongs of the round roster latter is the last time he's gonna throw a pass in a game whole year likely.

And we're going out about the way we came -- with pretty normal temperatures not an extremely hot and no extreme rain on. Yeah you know it isn't the time that you're an average temperature actually begins to its rock. Right Philly you know we've been so hot for so long it's it's finally that kind of breaking point where at the end of August in that averages near 92. We're looking for averages -- 91 honestly hold the Greek cooler. That's right I mean that's that's kind of a -- that that we have heading into -- all right in and I can't wait until we can get a little eclipsed it it is comfortable temperature -- to a Nazi that -- -- it really ties. In 1991. Wouldn't -- and little shot -- a shower. Yes exactly 30% chance of rain that by the way is very average for this type of -- and it's typical target date today. And we get more of the same up to the weekend but rain chances go up a bit is that what you're telling us that's right to tomorrow about a 40% chance of what we're going with a little higher for some areas and Saturday to it looks like about 60% chance so we'll have -- kind of scattered downpours more in the picture for tomorrow and Saturday and the -- long holiday weekend not much change. But yes this person they have gone back to about 30% chance for -- same story on Monday so that high pressure kind of being built for instance. Short form of the -- Can answer your question what. People. My goodness markets to us Arkansas State University. A -- after having a party. And a couple of guys were goofing around with some sports equipment one guy threw a football to another guy who was holding a golf club. They got with a golf club hits the football. And breaks the golf club in half. The neck of the golf club 530 feet any of pails and eighteen year old girl Natalee Joseph eaten right in the next. Whole week now this is look in that a couple of guys rush over and hold her very very stale. The golf club actually went into part of her spinal. And doctors and now you saved your life which -- never gonna walk again -- paralyzed from the neck. The good news is. Her dad now says. He had spewing on both sides of her body and it moved her arms and they don't know her long term prognosis yet. But all of this because a couple of guys at a frat party one -- you know football with a golf. Hailed from thirty feet away. Well the good as if she might make a full recovery yeah she's getting better but. Wow you know talk about unintended consequences. And not fully appreciating the possible consequences of your actions. I just hit a football with a golf club not what the equipment designed to do. You know again -- thirty feet away -- on the sidewalk. -- people. The only time I've ever had any. And then hitting a golf ball with a baseball -- And kind of get hit with baseball bat. So don't make horn at the bottom line that's that's the moral of this story don't make it sports equipment. Because when you do people get hurt. That's a good lesson to learn guesstimate hope that. In the long run Natali -- makes a full recovery. Police are still investigating.
