Plus, police in Georgia search for a man, believed to be responsible for a string of robberies, who apologizes to the victims while taking their money. We'll have the story of this "gentleman" bandit at noon.

In weather, there's a very hot, dry day on tap with rain chances no higher than 20 percent. We could get into the upper 90s with index values in the 105 to 107 range over the weekend. How long will this pattern last? Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the answer during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also access weather 24/7 HERE, and download our mobile weather apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
