you this is CBC here and now two teams want to put a basketball team in here but there's a problem one of those groups has a deal with the city and the other one has a deal with the league I'll explain more coming up on here and now plane crash in Patty's pond I feel over the crash that as the prize increases so do the demands on organizers taking on a life of its own now follow the rules for Fido and get a free coffee sometimes it can just be thank you very much hot hot heat splitting the rocks right across the province over the next couple of days I'll let you know how long it lasts coming up we begin in Gould's where the chase the ace fundraiser is ramping up in a big way this morning organizers met with key players from the city the province and emergency services yeah they're now facing the challenge of holding a major public event every week until someone draws that ace and claims the million-dollar prize here are now Zack Gowdy has the latest when you're selling half a million tickets it helps to get an early start on the stapling this morning volunteers from the local 4-h club were busy bundling stacks of 5050 tickets a job now too big for the church to handle we started about five weeks ago when we realized that there was a need that the church really couldn't handle the amount of tickets that they were selling yesterday we were here at 8:30 and we were here until about quarter after 11:00 last night and we were back here again this morning at 8:30 and I'd say pretty much all throughout today we've had between 20 and 30 parents sitting across the table stapling away organizers are grateful for all the helping hands now that this chase the ACE has blown up beyond their wildest expectations when we started this we hope we hope to get maybe 10 12 weeks out of it just to you know have a small fundraiser we never thought it would get to this it's taken on a life of its own now the chase has now gone on for 40 weeks there's more than a million dollars in the jackpot and game days are equivalent to holding a fair-sized summer festival every Wednesday night this morning organizers met with all the key players the city the province the police the Special Events Advisory Committee been meeting almost on a weekly basis lately about this event it's turned into something very very major so every week we need to take the information in conjunction with the RNC and our traffic department and and look at what needs to be done next week one of the big issues discussed is cell service with so many people in the area it's nearly impossible to make a call or send a text Bell Aliant has now installed new equipment to give the cellular network a boost other improvements for this week's game include porta-potties and to satellite reporting stations to make it easier for the lucky winners to identify themselves another issue is that emergency services personnel are already booked for other big summer events like the upcoming royal Saint John's regatta now st. kevin's parish says that if chase the ACE is still going there will be no game on regatta day it's the right thing to do and there are so many other charitable organizations who depend on that regard for their fundraising we would never want to interfere with that it's a move that underscores just how big this chase the ACE has become and there could be more like it the elusive ace is hiding among 12 cards still in the deck at st. Kevin's meaning the game could go on until October zach Gowdy CBC News gules a local pilot is recovering from a plane crash today his homemade ultralight aircraft went down on an island in patty's pond yesterday evening today crews were cleaning up the wreckage the pilot was alone in his two-seater plane when it crashed landed around 7 p.m. last night the man's injuries are not believed to be serious police say he went to hospital yesterday with cuts and bruises voters on the pond brought him to shore almost immediately here in aus Megan McCabe was at the scene this afternoon that's where she met up with Ray Jaco an experienced pilot who was one of who was with the man injured in the crash just hours before he took off ray you were saying that you were working on this plane no I was working yeah we're doing a little bit of cosmetics that work with that with the owner not on this claim on his other plane tell me about that tell me about Sunday well I like I said I went I went down flying I was down without the st. Mary's Bay to look for salmon and I was only gone about an hour and a half and when I got back my firm over for crashed out so and when I did land and the the rnc and research and rescue and fire department well here what did you see when you flew over I just saw the wreckage because he was already one of the other pilots on the pond had gone out and gotten him they happened to be at the pond and had a seadoo already moving when that happened so they went out immediately and brought it back and as he do do you know how he's doing I have been able to I didn't want to impose upon his wife but I've tried to reach Lee sunup and if I had been able to get ahold to him but from what I've been hearing from for a friends of theirs he's coming along he's in hospital and he'd got a few scrapes and bruises and things like this and that's to be expected when you when you end up in a plane crash and are these home handmade homemade planes very common there well here they are there's quite a few and there's some people who are building aircraft now so we have a lot of good builders here in this area interesting it seems a little scary in my mind to make your own plane and take off in it well these guys know what they're doing you know they're they're not putting just they have to go by certain certain specs they have to follow Jaco says the ultralight aircraft that crashed here just after takeoff yesterday is a lot like this homemade ultralight aircraft which the owner built a few years ago and how goes he's a very skilled builder now as for what happened to cause yesterday's crash the Transportation Safety Board is investigating Megan McCabe CBC News Patty's pond the RCMP is still investigating an ATV accident in Bonavista over the weekend that claimed the life of a 13 year old girl the early indications are that the three young teenagers were riding in a side-by-side when the incident happened on Saturday ATV accidents involving young people are never welcome news for people like Rick Noseworthy who heads up the Avalon Trailway Association he says people in this province need to pay more attention to the safety regulations required when operating all-terrain vehicles it's very tragic the fact that this is affected you know two or three families a young child did and it's so preventable well as you can see by these machines you know they're every bit as big as this Ranger pickup and when you look at it your parents would never think of giving their child a pickup to drive at 13 and say here just go and play but then some parents give them this side by side and say go play follow up now to a CBC investigates story from 2014 about a rental scam in central Newfoundland this landlord entered guilty pleas to fraud charges earlier this month Darlene wheeler was accused by tenants of renting space in this skander home the problem was wheeler didn't actually own the house according to court documents one of the victims is a former tenant who spoke to CBC three years ago wheeler is due back in court in September for a pre-sentencing report the finance minister is breathing a sigh of relief tonight too big rating agencies have kept the provinces credit rating stable one of those companies SMP had warned the outlook was negative but it now believes it's stable if the agencies had cut the provinces credit rating borrowing money would have become more expensive I was pleased that they removed us from negative outlook I think that's a belief in their part that the plan that we have in place for controlling government costs is one that they can support and you know while we continue to have a significant deficit per capita and debt per capita I'm pleased that the rating agencies believe that the work that we're doing is going incrementally in the right direction basketball fans in st. John's thought their prayers were answered last week the National Basketball League of Canada announced on Twitter Friday night that st. John's had been awarded a team but it appears the details of the deal are still in play mile one Center mark well it's not exactly a slam-dunk yet but it seems that the news that st. John's is gonna get a brand-new basketball professional basketball team here is getting more confusing as the minutes go by the National League tweeted Friday that a team has been awarded to st. John's but it didn't answer the question who will operate that franchise and the city's response didn't clear things up it said it has nothing to report regarding a deal to use the mile one Center and today things got even more tangley well the National Basketball League of Canada seems to have a deal with a different proponent that we have a deal with which is disappointing and kind of mysterious really you heard him right Hickman says it appears the National Basketball League of Canada has a deal to operate a team in st. John's with one group and st. John's Sports & Entertainment has a deal to lease mile one Center to another group Hickman says the city is trying to speak with the National League to try to straighten this out dealing with another proponent who we're not sure who that person is that company is and they have no deal with the city and as far as we know they're not locally owned now Hickman says the city had a fair deal to lease mile one to a local group he says it didn't include a large subsidy from the city Hickman hopes the city can reach a similar deal with the outside operator hoping to bring basketball here but you have to be fair to the city in your dealings you have to pay your way if you're gonna rent the building now this afternoon CBC did speak with the league it said it will have more to say about this later this week as for the fans there's still hope but they're gonna have to wait for awhile to find out of this team we'll get a new basketball this city will get a new basketball team now if it does start if that does work out this city will have a team in November it looks like live in Saint John's I'm Mark Quinn for hearing now you can see from that shot out there it's a beautiful night to be outside and if the weather was always like this they wouldn't need that arena court would not be something we Newfoundland yeah well it's a lovely night to go for a drive as well and you know some people are more passionate about cars than others and you could say that the members of the Newfoundland antique and classic car club are one of the most passionate ones of all that's right and today CBC Radio's cross talk celebrated antique car month and here now isn't actually painted was there Greg Morel has had as 1949 Plymouth special deluxe since he was a teenager at 16 years of age there wasn't a lot of money at home so who either had to make do with what you had so I took my driver's tests on this vehicle when I was 16 years of age and I can tell you when the examiner came out and looked at it we did a complete inspection that everything worked and I got my driver's license first test to others being a part of the Newfoundland antique and classic car club is about simply a passion for cars and nostalgia Bob Ford was on holiday in Massachusetts when he saw a 1958 Edsel citation in a buy and sell magazine he bought it for about $12,000 and spent twenty-five thousand more to repair it why because this is a car that I always wanted to write from 1957 I wanted to own one like this it took me from 1957 till 85 to get it so it's gonna be mine forever but today's event was about more than owning cool cars so collecting antique cars has become a sort of community building activity in Newfoundland members of the Newfoundland classic and antique car club often do charity work with seniors homes and children's charities as well and their work brings together people from different aspects of society today though people like Kai Austen were able to appreciate the product of other people's passion do you like cars yeah do you like the cars here today yeah which one's your favorite the blue one with the roof I think it drove off actually it's not here name which one the blue car with the finish why do you like it because it has that big bucket on the top when you're old enough to drive do you want to get that car okay yes another convert and future vintage car enthusiast actually penned it CBC News st. John's that's very cute I must say most of the time any time I see someone with a convertible I ask why do you own one of those in this province but I got to say I was very jealous of Naches they're getting to go up for a drive with the top down with the weather that we've been having an amazing summer we were offered no problem I'll show you how great the start has been numbers-wise and what the forecast is looking like for it after the break excellent free coffee or $50 fine if you're out walking your dog on a leash you'll get one of these if not you'll get one of these the city of Mount Pearl is trying a new kind of trail enforcement that's coming up you you welcome back Ryan and certainly you've got some good news for us yeah and I thought I would share a little bit of good news in terms of how nice it's been hearing a lot of comments of has this summer really been as nice as it feels huh we'll get a couple of bumps in the road early July but we had pretty suddenly totally forgot about May but she was pretty good Megan a couple bumps early dry and now we've had a good two-week stretch so everybody's forgot to go to everything it feels like it's been great for months as long as we don't pay for it in August well but in terms of the numbers for this summer we are now up to in st. John's 26 days including today of 20 degrees or warmer and 20 degrees is a pretty good indicator of a summer day I think absolutely and so we've been keeping this counter for the last couple of years and here it is again 2012 the best summer ever that's kind of the number to beat and interesting to note we are off to our best start since 2012 okay so a good chance that we might be able to match sort of 2013 20s you know up to the of course that requires looking much farther into the future than and you ever dare too far into the future Peter no too far into the future that said the house she go engages we look into the future we are splitting the rocks today of course and we're gonna be splitting the rocks tomorrow even some some sticky in there as humidex values will be rising same thing for Wednesday backing it off a little bit with some of those showers moving into Labrador and of course for the later parts of the week we are looking at that not half bad not great as some showers move into the region by the way haven't forgotten about you folks in central parts of Newfoundland with those highs today badger 29 degrees that's day number 31 above 20 degrees for you folks Corner Brook day number 27 of 20 degrees are warmer and that is a 27 degree temperature there and happy valley-goose Bay today was day number 17 at 20 degrees or warmer and now unfortunately been a missing data in Labrador City but I will try and get that in the next couple days those are the big Environment Canada stations that we keep track of the temperatures and we're keeping track of the temperatures right now still a very very nice evening out there and the good news is for those that aren't a fan of the sticky stuff that dew point yeah as we take a look at the dew point very good indicator of how it feels we're in that comfortable range but as we move over the next couple days that dew point is gonna climb up into the 16 17 18 range so starting to get a little sticky at times certainly into the afternoon as temperatures will really start to rise over the next couple of days by well I shouldn't say really start to rise because we are already into the high 20s but we are gonna add a little bit more in the way of temperature over the next few days we're talking low 30s for tomorrow and even into the Wednesday time period there as a visible satellite showing nicely the onshore winds along the west coast bit of some coastal cloud there a couple of showers firing up over the interior parts of the island right now but as south of the trans-canada highway and it looks like south of buckins as well not expecting those to roll through any communities tonight and we are looking at a very very pleasant evening some onshore fog for the south coast tomorrow morning other than that it's very quiet out there look at those morning temperatures so windows wide open tonight for sure and let that nice summer air come in it's not all that often we can relieve all the windows open as we roll into tomorrow a very nice day again fog will retreat to the coast along parts of the south coast we're gonna be up in the 27 degree range for Metro a little bit cooler with winds in from the South tomorrow I think they will actually be so southeast places like Faerieland will top out around 20 18 degrees right in those entre winds along the south coast shouldn't here be near 30 in Corner Brook Humber Valley Grand Falls Windsor to Gander that stretch through Central and even down towards Terra Nova that'll be our best chance of 30 to 32 degrees tomorrow talking about humidity of the humidex in that 35 range I think st. John's feels closer to 31 into the afternoon and 30 and happy valley-goose Bay Mary's Harbor as well as mackovic and high 20s in the West will talk about Wednesday and beyond coming up thanks Ryan the city of Mount Pearl is trying a refreshing approach to enforcement on its Trailways positive reinforcement constable Derek Hinds has been handing out free McDonald's coffee coupons to people who are following the rules like walking their dog on a leash it's encouragement the kind of approach that City Council is considering for other streams of enforcement too we tagged along today while constable Hinds patrolled the trails I noticed a lot of people out walking their dogs on leashes kids weren't our helmets and even people pushing their dirt bikes so I went to my supervisor and said it'd be a great thing if we could give something out for people doing great things instead of giving out tickets all the time great to see you walking your dog on the leashes on behalf of the city we like to give you a free coffee sunshine free coffee can't complain I mean it's a great incentive to keep doing it obviously I think it's great when people have their dogs on a leash of course just because you never know the risk and some people are just really nervous of animals if they don't have their own right it's great actually because most times we're giving them a citation for something that they're doing so it's good to actually give somebody you know a coffee for doing a good thing it made your day I like to give you guys a free coffee it's great to see it was a hit I'll give you 25 people off you know people not having a dog off leash and the same thing with dirt bikes and kids with scooters and we did it again on Friday and I gave it another 25 so it worked really great what was the reaction like from people awesome they thought it was great they couldn't believe it it was nice that they were getting a good thing for doing a good thing how do we encourage people to follow the rules because the rules are for the benefit of everyone and to do that come up with an idea like that get out there and actually encourage folks to continue to follow those rules I think it's great you know when when no matter what we call them we call a municipal enforcement officers police officers most of us would say a cop you know when I cop shows up on a bike or a try like this on a quad and he's got a helmet on and sunglasses on and he looks for part of an enforcement officer he stops you in the trail way to come to see you your first reaction think what it is it's like oh oh what have I done and how much trouble am I in for whatever when they stop take the glasses off smile and say you know what dog on the leash you know what young guy young gal helmet on today riding your bike in the trail we really appreciate that here this is for you I just think it's a brilliant idea approach council may consider for other issues well surprisingly enough you know I can answer that with a yes we have brought in not that long ago as you will recall we brought in a clear bag garbage program to encourage more people in our city to recycle we've had an ongoing discussion at Council about carrot versus stick if you go and you see a container and someone has left their recycling in it they are not doing it right and they have failed to participate or they're simply ignoring you yeah that needs to be addressed and there there has to be a citation of fine whatever for that kind of thing but shouldn't we do something to recognize all of those people who go out of their way because you do go out of your way to do this stuff don't you recognize them and how do you do that so there's the carrot what do you do to provide for those who do it to encourage others versus just the discipline that's required for those who don't we kind of been debating that you know that constable Hynes and the the staff at municipal enforcement came up with this idea and went ahead and executed it that's the kind of example that council looks at and we can't help but smile and say guys great job and it proves a point I think I hope it does anyway that it's not always got to be enforcement enforcement enforcement sometimes it can just be thank you very much well we're used to seeing police on motorcycles or horseback or as you saw there sometimes on a quad but this is new a Quebec police officer is Canada's first cop on a skateboard and as Simon a connection II reports he knows more than a trick or two agent jetty is video we'll be spending the summer patrolling the south shore skate parks keeping an eye out and maybe pulling off a sick ollie or to himself ants video is Canada's first skater cop and along with his badge and gun his standard-issue gear includes a helmet and board he says his modified uniform definitely gets noticed yeah yeah yeah Nellie's different Oh silly let's see if I skated in policing in the water yeah she did you can call Texas office awesome the longer a police officer earned his street cred the hard way he was once a skater boy himself who dropped out of school at age 15 now that his life has taken a 180 uses his skills to relate to teens who turn to the skate park as a hangout they say it's obvious he's not a poser had you ever seen a police officer skating before no never parents think it's cool too but for a different reason as a murder we don't really like our kids going and coming in this kind of a place so I think it's gonna be safer for them but ASP Leon says skateboarding's bad-boy reputation is overblown he's hoping his story can inspire more police departments to get stoked about a sport he says is misunderstood the boy survived a starter set without near in mud PK little called upon useless as kids that's kind of the mirror the skater cop also hopes by meeting kids on their own turf he'll build trust with the community that's traditionally had a difficult relationship with police it doesn't hurt that he can grind the odd rail to simonec initially cbc news long gay a woman in Glover town says she'll never let her young son forget why he's a hero will tell you what he did to deserve that kind of praise and about three minutes you welcome back to here now a woman in Glover town says she's lucky to be alive and it's all thanks to her son yes Marcy Smith says her 11 year old son David was the only one to notice their house was on fire he woke up his mother and sister and got them out of the house yeah Marci and David shared their story with the CBC's who had a Marshall he just started yelling that the house was on fire for us to come out samantha was already asleep and I came out of my room and the blaze was everywhere it was already in the ceiling it was everywhere but he held it together and caught us awake and got us out for sure he did his sister was asleep and I yelled for her to get up and to get out and he ran down the hall and made sure she got herself out of the front door and out safe while I stayed in and got the phone for dialing 911 it's because of David we did though because if he had waited or he had a ran out of the house like most kids would have done because that's what we teach them to do we would not have made it we would not have made it our house was small the fire was at the back of the house it went for his room first and that it would have been my room and his sisters if Heda went out we would not have made it not a chance it's heartbreaking and our dog was still in there I tried to get the dog that's got to be one of the things that sticks in your throat yeah I'm sorry yeah it does we tried though sometimes I think about what I could have done until I get the cat and the target and then they just tell me I couldn't no matter what you saw makes me feel better about it you saw how fast it happened buddy unbelievable it's it's so amazing what everybody has stepped up and done for us I cannot believe it I mean as people I've never even spoke to you before have just open themselves up the donations of clothes and everything is just amazing now we we still are working on you know where we can put everything but you don't have a place yet but we have here it's just it's so warm and so it's just amazing how people are set up for us there's been another death in this province involving an all-terrain vehicle coming up after the break an ATV user and a longtime safety at it talks about how tough it is to get people to be more cautious around the big machines you welcome back to here and now the death of a 13 year old girl in Bonavista has the head of an ATV organization pleading with the public to think safety first when offer it operating off-road machines earlier today the CBC's Jeremy Eaton spoke with the Avalon trail way corporations Rick Noseworthy for the rules clearly state that you had to be 16 years old to drive this machine do you have to have any safety gear off no you don't have to but that is a definitely a little bit of a gap in the legislation the manufacturer recommends and we strongly recommend that you wear a helmet but right now two provincial law says you do not have to wear a helmet mossad by size well as you can see by these machines you know they're every bit as big as this Ranger pickup and when you look at it your parents would never think of giving their child a pickup to drive at 13 say here just go and play but then some parents give them this side by side and say go play well these are middle-of-the-road recreation machines they're not you know Yamahas high output machines and the one on my right you can do probably 65 kilometers an hour the one on my left can do upwards of 85 kilometers an hour well the one on the left is pretty 1,200 pounds the one on the right is a probably a thousand pounds and did they all differ you can get some of these six eaters can go up to as much as 18 1905 what goes through your mind when you hear about incidents like the one that happened over the weekend in Bonavista a lot of things go through and it's very tragic the fact that this is affected you know two or three families a young child did and it's so preventable the reason why you need a helmet and your seatbelt on and roll bar they work in conjunction together they got to have that because if you don't every seatbelt on the very thing this T's on to save your life the roll bar is you'll be ejected from the machine and the roll bar will squat and kill you if you don't have your helmet on your head can hit the roll bar or hit the ground as simple as that you can be killed and if you don't have a roll bar the machine will squash you so you need three of it and you need to use it it's a system and all three have to be in place all the time well the wire brush you use on your barbecue could get hauled off the shelves CBC has learned Health Canada is taking a closer look at the safety of the popular tool after reports of people ingesting loose wire bristles the CBC's Katie Nicholson explains it may look like a harmless thread but this is actually wire from a barbecue brush and it meant a world of pain for Stephen Crabb and it was probably one of my first two bites of a burger and it just got bad really quickly you know I thought that there was a piece of thyme or rosemary or something caught in my throat Imaging revealed it was no wayward herb Crabbe had swallowed a metal barbecue brush bristle it was sore but it was also piercing because every time I swallowed the slide that was sticking out was hitting the other side of my throat and causing little micro abrasions a doctor removed it and crab threw out the brush to me it just seems silly that they're still selling them and people are using them but that could change Health Canada is now performing a risk assessment of the safety of barbecue brushes with wire bristles this after it received nine incident reports since 2011 although surgeons believe the number is much higher this was pulled from the throat of a Nova Scotia woman three years ago and earlier this month another bristle was removed from the throat of this four year old in Alberta then there's Kim schellenberg doctors had to slice into the red deer woman's neck in the hunt for a bristle accidentally served with a hamburger she's thrilled to Health Canada is looking into the issue well I think it's about time schellenberg has called for the popular item to be taken off the market since her own brush with a bristle because you you see that and it's like oh for three dollars you can swallow something that can make its way out to your jugular or you know cut your guts up if Health Canada decides the brushes pose a danger to the public there could be recalls or they could be pulled from the market altogether we may not go over well retailers say many customers know the risks but still swear by their wire bristle brushes we always try and guide them away from the bristle brush unfortunately sometimes that's what they still want Health Canada's risk assessment will be complete by the end of summer now in the meantime if your barbecue brush is looking a little used and abuse like this one you might want to get rid of it there are alternatives on the market like this wooden paddle or you can always ball up some aluminum foil use some tongs and a little elbow grease Katie Nicholson CBC News Winnipeg the weather update is brought to you by Beltone hearing service st. John's helping the world hear better before we get to the weather it's certainly been beautiful barbecue weather and lots of people have been out there Ryan have you tried any of the alternative yeah there was a boy that that happened to last fall and immediately that kind of clicked for me obviously with youngsters at home now so made the switch to the wooden paddle and verdict definitely thumbs up wouldn't go back so it works fine and a lot safer yep safe don't have to worry about that that's right and before we get to the weather we have a little look here at some unlikely furry animal friends yeah this oh this video was sent in from Lori Pinson of Deer Lake her one-year-old cat skittles has become friends with a baby squirrel the young squirrels started hanging around Pink's ins cabin and has been playing with skittles ever since vixen tells us the cat is very gentle and he's have even brought home birds completely unharmed that's amazing I'd say that squirrel look at think he follows the cat here it's like where do my cat go excuse me cat friend wait for me hello these ghettos where you don't Skittles wait for me skittles that's admit cuz cats you would think would be chasing after a creature like that just kind of like a mouse and she's like oh my goodness yeah so let's just hope that squirrel knows the difference between skittles the cat and the other cat down the street right yeah with the sharp claws and that lean and hungry look yeah it's very great videos yeah thanks for sending that in ah great day to lounge around with your friends outside the only possible segue I could find there as we look at our highs today it was a beauty right across Atlantic Canada some thunderstorms bubbling up in New Brunswick but it is smooth sailing here across Newfoundland and Labrador and as we look at that Future tracker it's going to be another nice one tomorrow as I mentioned lots of sunshine across Labrador Newfoundland some cloud out in the East but any of that early fog and heavier cloud will retreat back to the coast along the south coast into the afternoon and again tomorrow we are talking about daytime highs into the 30s from Terra Nova to corner Brooke central the best chance of getting in there and happy valley-goose Bay back across the interior into the Mary's Harbor region now for Wednesday we're watching this cold front and it will be pushing through Labrador on Wednesday Newfoundland some shower and drizzle chances mainly drizzle chances along that south coast is the fog will be a little bit more resistant to to pull back to the coast it will pull back as we move into the afternoon but may take a little bit longer on Wednesday just a little bit more moisture in the air by the time we get to Wednesday evening I think this model is overdoing those shower chances it's mainly just cloud cover and that front that will be moving into southeastern parts of Labrador so it's a late day arrival for Cartwright as we look ahead to Wednesday 20 degrees in Labrador city named with those showers marching in again it's South Coast drizzle the possibility of a shower perhaps from poor to bask across to Mary's town but generally just cloud cover and those temperatures again into the interior near 30 degrees for Central and it looks like another warm on here in the East at 26 to 27 now for Wednesday night in through Thursday this front will then start to wander onto the island so some lingering showers in behind it and those showers will start to stretch across and push into western parts of newfoundland central possibly into the afternoon I think st. John's likely stays dry until maybe Thursday evening her into the overnight so really three solid days here and note the colder air coming in behind this front so we're talking temps back into the teens yet ahead of the front on Thursday we are still into the high 20s across central parts of Newfoundland and again the humidity certainly building over the next couple days we're talking low to mid 30s in terms of what it feels like right across the island tomorrow once again on Wednesday and even on Thursday the humidity will be hanging on in the central and eastern sections of the island of course a beautiful week what does that mean well we do have some shower chances for Friday into Saturday this is the system that will be moving in the showers persistent four Labrador I think it's showers Friday into early Saturday for the island right now my thinking is that this low kind of clears off we better get a bit of a dry punch for Saturday afternoon even some sunshine back in the mix for Sunday so the weekend is not a washout but the temperatures won't be quite as warm as what you're seeing certainly over the next couple of days we'll obviously keep you posted on that and again into the 30s and labra with shower chances Wednesday through Saturday and even lingering into Sunday across the big land it's time now for the young athlete of the day we want to introduce you to Joshua party of manuals CBS Joshua is ten years old and recently received his brown belt in karate from Jason Foley's Academy of martial art Joshua also plays baseball and loves to swim great work Joshua here today's young athlete of the day it's an emotional reunion that was captured on camera as HMCS st. John's returned home to Halifax after a six month mission sub left handed Kristen lop Juan and Gabrielle Lambert were celebrating his homecoming friends for another celebration yes their marriage
