Speaking of dogs, we'll take a look at one massive canine. At 173 pounds - yes, 173 POUNDS - it's no wonder this 17-month-old pit bull is called "Hulk!" Take a look at noon, and see more HERE.

In weather, our temperatures will only reach the lower 60s this afternoon, and some areas could be at or near freezing overnight. Meteorologist Ben Terry will have more on that and he'll take a sneak peek into the weekend during his live, local forecast at noon.
