8:07 am
baltimore mourning the loss of an inspirational trainer. for more than half a century he taught thousands of young boys and men in baltimore how to box and councilled them on life issues. he passed away last night at the good samaritan hospital. he was 92. well, just as the holidays roll around much of the midwest is experienced the first snowfall of the winter. this was the scene in minnesota where a foot of snow fell in some places. police there say it has caused more than 400 traffic accidents. and the wintery conditions in wisconsin are also responsible for a crash that killed two people there. be careful in that. yeah. to say the least. we've had our bout with that. hopefully no time soon. >> please, no, tim, not yet. >> all i'll say is that is the same storm system moving our way. the only difference is temperature. it's very cold over there. it's very mild here. if we had the same temperatures we'd have the samewet stkpwhrer what do we do? >> we keep it in perspective.
8:08 am
live through it. enjoy what we have right now. that's what we have right now. sunshine and blue skies. yesterday we got to 66 degrees. the average and normal high is 58. so we were well above the norm. nowhere near the records though. the records for right around this week or so have been up near 80 degrees. 78, 79. we're nowhere near that but we are definitely enjoying this stretch. it continues into tomorrow. the change in tomorrow is that that storm system finally does arrive late tomorrow night into tuesday. and as it does it brings us some rain. our temperatures are still going to be way too mild for any winter precipitation. that's a good thing. we'll hold out as long as we can. 88% relative humidity. calm winds currently at bwi marshal. the barometer much lower than it has been with high pressure still in control. the high pressure is bringing us the nice conditions, clear skies and very dry air. dew point's at 31.
8:09 am
38 oakland. 38 cumberland. then we jump up to 40. ten degree differential between allegheny and washington county. and then 30s across central maryland 46 down on the shore where the winds are coming in from the north at 3 miles per hour. and again calm readings around much of the state. we've had small craft advisories in effect for parts of the weekend. they have now been lifted. the winds are really not a factor. this is the very slow moving cold front. we've been talking about this thing for just about a week. it's being driven by a low pressure system pushing all over in our direction. on the top edge of the spin cold air being yanked down from canada is creating snow conditions across the dakotas over into the upper peninsula of michigan seeing colder air over toward minneapolis and fall. all of that is moving in our direction. again, you see the transition. more of a rain event as it starts to move into the milder air. now the colder air on the western side of this, the back edge, will drop our temperatures a little bit. but the temperatures dropping only mean that we go down to very close to normal highs for
8:10 am
this time of year. so high pressure builds in right behind the front as it proves on through. we'll start to see clouds increase tomorrow. rain through tuesday. and then we'll start to see high pressure building in by wednesday. but the temperatures will go down into the 50s rather than these mid-60s. again, that's closer to normal for this time in november. sunset at 4:53 today. southeast wind on the bay at five to ten naughts. 12:54 is our next high tide at fort mchenry. clouds mixing with sun. overnight lows down to about 41. a little colder in the north and west suburbs. 60 tomorrow. mostly cloudy heading into the afternoon. but still a mild day in store. and then 60 on tuesday with rain. 62 on wednesday. 56 and 50 on thursday and friday as the front moves on by. overnight lows still in the 40s. so we'll still be relatively mild. and, again, nothing like what we're seeing out in the midwest. >> okay. if you say so. still ahead on eyewitness news sunday morning, cruise ship fire. why the investigation into the break down that stranded
8:11 am
thousands of passengers may have hit some rough water. and bidders in new york get a chance to get their hands on some of bernie madoff's most valuable possessions. even his boxer shorts. we'll explain. >> reporter: and on this chilly morning runners have just taken off for the first annual restoration run to benefit the jones fall restoration. we'll tell you more about it coming up after the break. all right. but first here's saturday's winning lottery numbers. good luck everybody. we are back in just a moment. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
8:12 am
8:13 am
8:14 am
welcome back. sunday november 14th. taking a look outside at a gorgeous day start. few more clouds out there than we have seen over the last few days, but that is not going to factor into the weather today too much. still a lot of sunshine. i want to show you first warning live doppler radar and give you an idea of what's moving our way in actual time. radar shows very slow moving cold front we've been watching creeping across the region. it extends from the great lakes all the way down to the gulf.
8:15 am
it will definitely bring rain by monday evening into tuesday. the way it plays out looks like this. moisture streams right on up the coast. we will see likely an inch of rain out of this across parts of the area. we are already about four inches above the normal rainfall for the year. so we don't really need the rain, but it's always positive to have some especially when we haven't had it in about two weeks or so. 63 degrees today. our forecast high sun with some clouds. partly cloudy tonight. 41 degrees. then tomorrow 60. mostly cloudy especially heading into late afternoon. we'll have your five-day forecast in a few moments. thank you, tim. first back to other stories people are talking about this morning. the investigation into the carnival cruise ship fire hits a rough patch. the splendor is now in san diego after 4500 passengers and crew lived through three days without electricity, showers and hot food. originally u.s. authorities planned to lead the investigation, but the ship is registered in panama. so that country will take over. critics say carnival is trying
8:16 am
to avoid tougher regulations in the u.s. three soldiers in colorado caught on tape breaking into a marijuana dispensary. police were called to a neighboring business when they noticed movement inside the dispensary. the thieves realized they were being watched and try today go back the way they came in but the officers were waiting for them out back and took the trio into custody. scammed thousands of their life savings, now his lifestyle is up for sale. some of bernie madoff's prized possessions were sold at auction in new york. someone bought his grand piano for nearly $40,000. people also bought his monogram slippers and boxer shorts. the 10 karat diamond engagement ring madoff gave his wife brought in $550,000. all that money will be divided among the people that he cheated out of through his investment scheme. and you may not know that the jones falls has the most fertile trout stream in maryland. >> one group is now working to
8:17 am
protect that stream with the first annual restoration run. wjz is live at meadow wood park in lutherville. that's where sharon gibala is for the event. >> reporter: runners got up for another good cause. this one is for as you mentioned restoration run to benefit the restoration of the jones falls and help the trout population. we have jay here to tell us a little more. good morning. >> hi, good morning. yeah. the race is the first of what we hope is many. what we're going to be planning to do here is raising money that will go directly into the jones falls. we have about right now we have plans to put an $800,000 project downstream from here. so this is just something to get us started to help in that effort. i think the main thing is we wanted the public or the community to understand that our group is not just made up of a bunch of fishermen. we are fishermen, but our main goal is to protect these
8:18 am
waters. and they're everyone's waters. they all flow downstream. >> reporter: and what's the shape of the jones falls right now? >> actually the jones falls is one of the highest density trout streams in the state of maryland. so nobody really realizes that. and it's right in everyone's backyard. but out in this area it's not heavily fished. but it holds a lot of fish. but it's a lot of private land too. >> reporter: what's the response you've been getting so far? >> we got a tremendous response. we had in the race here got about little over 100 runners. sponsors came through and probably raise around $8,000 or $9,000 with this race. and just keep it going in the future. >> reporter: very good then. if you want to learn more about their project back to you guys. >> sharon, are you a fisher lady? >> fisher person? i don't think she can hear me. >> reporter: i'm sorry. i couldn't hear you.
8:19 am
am i a fisher lady? i was a fisher kid. it's been a long time. >> okay. maybe we'll all have to put together a fishing trip down the jones falls. how about that? >> how about an eating trip. you go and fish and i'll eat it. >> that's no fun. >> okay. all right. all right. still to come on eyewitness news sunday morning. >> flesh eating bacteria. as scary for doctors as it is for patients. up next a mother's ,,,,,,,,,,,,,

8:22 am
well, we were talking about rain moving into the region. we've had an incredible stretch. i don't think anyone can complain about the weather we've had for the last week. first warning live doppler radar shows the story. we are not on the bad side of this system. we've seen snow out in the midwest out toward minneapolis and heading into toward milwaukee. but we're going to get rain out of this. could see a pretty good soaking through tomorrow. the one thing i will caution you there are still a lot of leaves on the roads. when we're dealing with rain moving in like it is, the leaves get wet and starts to get dangerous. tomorrow morning could be a little tricky -- not tomorrow morning but tuesday morning could be tricky. rain gets here tomorrow morning late and then into tuesday. tuesday is the day we'll see the rain. your forecast for the next five days looks like this. rain tomorrow, late at night. we're talking about after rush hour after you're already home. but then tuesday about an inch of rain throughout the day. 60 still our high. start to clear out wednesday, thursday and friday. temperatures start to gradually drop. 62, 56 and 50. we'll finally start to pull out

8:24 am
>> there was this yellow waxy wrap stuff over my abdomen. and i remember very clearly seeing what looked like french fries or chicken underneath it. and what it was actually was my internal organs. and i could see my intestines. >> reporter: the infection is one of the most feared in all of medicine because it's highly resistant to antibiotics. it's rare attacking only about 600 people a year in the u.s. but it is deadly for up to a third of its victims. >> she has a very difficult infection to treat. there is just no question about that. >> reporter: the doctor led the team that kept sandy alive during the year and a half she spent at shock trauma. >> i would just shake my head. why? why can't we get her well? >> reporter: sandy's trouble started in 2005 when she gave birth to her son christopher by c section. she developed complications. then doctors realized the deadly danger she faced. >> they were trying to give me
8:25 am
hope, but i can read it behind their eyes that they didn't think there was any hope. >> reporter: on a recent visit to shock trauma no one could believe sandy was alive. >> oh my gosh. hi. >> reporter: sandy and her doctors can't pinpoint where she picked up the bacteria but surprisingly it exists all around us. it lives in crowded places like day care centers, schools or prisons. you can pick it up from contaminated items like sports equipment. all it needs is an open wound to get in your body where it can run rampant. >> i don't know the number of times we operated on her, but it was probably 50 when all was said and done. maybe more. >> reporter: sandy spent the first years of her baby's life in the hospital. but doctors finally got rid of the deadly bacteria. with her organs literally eaten away, she then underwent a rare transplant of her small and large intestines. do you think you would have survived this if you hadn't had
