<< Good evening, I'm chief
meteorologist Robin Reed in the
SkyTracker 7 Forecast Center. It was a
warm day on Wednesday. Danville set a
record at 99 degrees. The heat
continues on Thursday, as highs
approach the century mark. This could
mean record highs for several hometowns
tomorrow. The ridge of high pressure
causing the heat will finally move out
by the end of the week. This will allow
a cold front cross the area Friday with
only an isolated shower or two at best.
The boundary will drop temperatures
back into the 80s this weekend with
less humidity. Rain opportunities stay
low through the weekend, with a bit
better chance of rain early next week.

noticed a hole in the outer layer of
his glove.

Mission Control says the
astronaut was not in any danger--- even


so he was ordered back into the airlock
