Space Shuttle Endeavour launch forecast

Here’s the forecast for us Colonists, and I bring much better news. The horrible tornado week has finally come to a close. The final number of actual twisters for the month of April is up for debate; but it is at least 200+. I have chased tornado warnings down every day for the past 10 days, and I’m happy to say there wont be any today. Here’s what we will see:

A breezy day for the MW and SW. There are wind advisories for the Plains also, and the snow is cranking out in MT. A new shot of energy is rolling past the West coast and into the Rockies, so expect some showers and snow in NV, CO, UT, WY, and MT. I’ll have the forecast.

Marines take on Britney Spears' "Hold it Against Me"



We got several emails from viewers on Friday last week suggesting we get this video into the show... but it was too late to make space in an already crowded newscast. Flash forward two days and now this group of guys and girls in uniform lip synching to "Hold it Against Me" by Britney Spears has over 2 MILLION hits on YouTube. It's really well done and pretty funny. Senior Producer Susan and I especially love the shot of 2 the guys on the hill dancing... very cool. Even Britney herself tweeted that she is "in LOVE" with the clip.
