>> three things we're watching for you this weekend. of course, it would be mice if we could take the tropical system and put it over a parched central florida . the biggest thing is the heat. secondly, severe, we're going to ramp up the tornado count, and the tropics. first the heat, if we get to 95 degrees in indianapolis, that will be the hottest indianapolis 500 ever. you're talk about some 400 people out there enduring that heat. on sunday, the trough, which is bringing snow to west yellowstone , lips out and producing tornadoes, we think. min minneapolis, omaha, and there's our tropical enttty trying to develop offshore of wilmington. a lot of models bring us back west. that means some unsettled weather for the beaches, rip currents here, and potentially maybe good news at the end of this, some of the worst drought in the country over georgia and south carolina , maybe a little rain there.
