Also today, his keepers call him beautiful, intelligent and outgoing – but this gorilla needs an attitude adjustment. We'll find out why the 400 pound male is heading for therapy.

Plus, do you get enough sleep or have trouble winding down at night? Your technology might be part of the problem.

In weather, Ben says we can expect clear skies with warm temperatures today. Our high today will be in the low 90s, while our overnight lows will dip into the 60s. How long will these beautiful conditions last? Tune in to Ben's live, local forecast at noon for the answer. You can find weather updates 24/7 HERE.
