Millennium Park reopens... Plus, more rain on the way?

Good Saturday Evening,

Lee Peck here in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

We've seen a few showers pop up today, but can we expect more for the remainder of our weekend? – Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your complete forecast.

Fortunately the rains did hold off for the grand reopening of Millennium Park. More tonight from this morning's ribbon cutting.

Also, you may be surprised to find out why some drug dogs are being trained to ignore marijuana.

Plus, American Airlines could soon start a new incentive for travelers who check their bags. We'll explain.

We'll see you tonight at ten for these stories and much more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
