>> this is a night you want to take the tv outside. >> upper 70s today, plenty of sunshine. love this time of year. basketball is exciting and weather that is comfortable. let's take a look at our amazing pic of the day. this is a picture of our wral gardens. i thought this would be i good segue going from the beautiful shot of our gardens and no our forecast. in a few weeks, our gardens will look like this. fine weather this afternoon. it was mild and it will be mild this eke. milder than was last night at 8:00. 68 with mostly clear skies. the wind will dry down. it has been rather blustery. there is a look at the wral gardens. the color will increase in the week ahead. 51 was the low officially out at the raleigh-durham international airport. only got to 7 # today. didn't see 80 across the area.
-- only got to 78 today. 57 at the airport. 78 at fayetteville. all this gray you see is low level moisture increasing across the area. since there's gentle rise in the tier rain, that may create a little bit of lift overnight. low clouds an fog may encompass the area tomorrow morning. by afternoon, that should all break up. another big feature we are talking about is our upper level low that as cross mexico. it is dumping rain, a ton of it across parts of texas, louisiana, arkansas. some of the weather there has been severe. this is our ridge of high pressure. as this tries for make its way into the ridge, it falls apart. eventually, this will weaken considerably and make its way into our area over the weekend and bring us a chance for some rain. look at all the issues going o we'll call these water unders where you see the dark green. this is a flash flood watch in effect. and the red areas are counties under flash flood warnings. that means there is active flash flooding going o we showed you the video the last half hour from louisiana. that flooding continues up into arkansas and western tennessee. this is the rainfall potential over the next five days.
throughout the lower mid high pressure mississippi valley. for us, saturday, sunday, monday, we are talking about 1/4 inch to 1/2 up. so a far cry from what they are seeing off to the west. our fitness forecast in the morn, the anticipation is for a cloudy start. some fog, maybe some drizzle. it will be warm at 61. it may take quite some time to scour out the chock. if it is slow to clear, that 77 may be hard to reach. -- to scour out the clouds. could have you few vichgles but the chance for rain very small. no the weekend be took the rain drops out for saturday and sunday because the chance for rain is so small -- chance for sprinkles.
this time of year. enjoy it while it lasts y i'm hoping it doesn't prompt effect to burst into beauty and we get a freeze. next at 5:30, an old theater transformed into a living museum but the landmark didn't stand the test of time. >> our tarheel traveler take us inside the earl theater. >> donald trump is back in north carolina. he is expected to speak to a full house in fayetteville in a little more than an hour. new tonight at 6:00, ken smith is live with a look at the anticipation building in this crowd. >> an an update we just can't wait to share with you new at 6:00. find out why this teenager's mother is crying tears of joy
