jurors to decide.


Was it simply an accident? OR....
were Diana and Dodi Al Fayed's death by
unlawful killing - the equivalent of
manslaughter... because of gross
negligence either by the paparazzi
following their car or by Dodi's

Center. Showers along with drizzle and
fog will continue overnight with lows
in the 40s. A warm front passes to our
north Tuesday. This will lead to more
clouds and showers. However,
temperatures should climb back into the
upper 60s thanks to a southerly wind.
Late Tuesday night, a cold front will
begin to clear things out for us and
put and brief end to the showery


pattern. As a result, look for
increasing sunshine Wednesday with
highs in the 60s. Another cool air
wedge will likely develop Thursday.
However, this one doesn't look very
strong. Highs will only manage 50
degrees Thursday with a few showers.
Friday, a cold front will arrive,
dismantling the wedge and bringing
scattered showers. For the latest
