Plus, a Virginia woman has had a pet bird for over 20 years and today we'll find out how she almost lost her wedding ring while changing his diaper!

In weather, we started the day about 20 degrees warmer today with cloudy skies. Ben says expect some sunshine later in the day with highs in the lower to mid 70s. Will that warmer weather carry over into the weekend? Find out during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.
