And so far in traffic this morning we've had some wet roadways out there since November to get the windshield wipers don't you have to keep those headlights on but. Traffic right now wellness the worst is in the road construction. West Kellogg eastbound especially at and its 35 threat if it can assist radio. And jets chiefs. Now look at the forecast with innocent staff meteorologist Dan Holliday is good morning Dan. Good morning we'll start to see showers and few storms head on off into the southeastern part of the state this morning. If that happens we become partly cloudy warming to around ninety for the hi this afternoon. But few more storms could pop up later in the day or early this evening but most of those will be very isolated. Or lose 72. Saturday looks to be warm with a high of ninety. 93 Sunday and we heat back up early next week I'm Taylor says meteorologist Dan holidays. Currently mostly cloudy 72 degrees not much wind southeast at five miles per hour. 812 down with Stevens and senate Republicans are released everybody's health care bill. And the hunt for support is on with us this morning from Capitol Hill Mary Alice -- good morning nice to have you with us. In my soul. What's the chances that they'll finally get something passed on this version of the health care Bill. Clark. Not looking great this morning but there's a chance. Already two senate Republicans have said that they are not voting for this bill. One of more conservative member of the party Rand Paul and one more moderate member of the party Susan Collins. So Mitch McConnell cannot lose any other members or this bill won't even go to the floor for the next round. So can Buchanan passed with those two not aboard then burials. Yes exactly there are 52 Republicans and he needs fifty about it so if it used to be only two holdouts he might just get by. But we still have a number of Republicans saying that they need to review the bill and undecided at this point so they still didn't look it over there for the next couple days anyway. Exactly they're planning on a vote of some sort next week how many Democrats are they planning on lightening up. Exactly zero to know when we had no it Democrats willing to come onboard while repeal of the original Obama relies on the table Democrats are saying they'll play ball if it's more of I am re figure readjust improve obamacare. But right now the proposal is still to repeal major parts of the lot and Democrats don't part of. And of course and we we are focused on the center right now but even if they pass something deficit we have the house to contend with that right. That's exactly right the more they make changes to the senate bill and especially if they make big changes to appeal to more moderate senators. The harder I'd be to pass legislation on a house. In the house that that's led the Al. The house understands that the senate is really where there's a slim margin. So I imagine if they pass something in the senate house will feel a lot of pressure exit to get on board. All right thank you Mary Alice appreciate your time this morning ABC news correspondent Mary Alice park's center Republicans releasing the revised health there bill. And if it can only afford to lose to a Republican votes and that's it and and now our. Interest health care light rain in southern Kansas overnight effective at once and the what much but then it started raining a little more here in the early morning hours and a which does high temperature yesterday 101. Degrees. Normal high for the date is 93. And I'm just taking a quick look at the innocents mothers that are radar. And there still a large area of showers but now it's generally to the south and down to the southeast. Pretty good pretty big area down near coffee bill in the southeast corner of the state but. There's a line of showers moving in the east but it's basically to the south of which thoughts it's going on southern Sedgwick county now. And in Sumner county and so forth but it's all moving to the east but that there are some echoes out there. There is cement on the radar showing that that we could still get some rain here and it will keep you posted on it that. Looking good for that maybe a little more moisture today as we into weekend. Tomorrow dead as you noted tomorrow is Saturday that's beginning weekend that is correct. A union has filed a grievance in response to western Michigan university's hiring of goats. To clear fifteen acres of woodland on campus the Kalamazoo gazette reports. Kathy Babbitt is the chief Steward of the American federation of state county and use of municipal employees local union and she's not happy. Abbott wrote in the July newsletter that the grievance had been filed in relation to subcontracting. And the unreported use of goats. University where do you go to better reports the university hired the team of goats after a half acre trial run last year fairly they did not tell ya must've been successful. The favor on goat probation there for awhile. Officials of goat rental company. Marchers on who's. Davey animal consumes three to five pounds of vegetation for day. And leave behind natural fertilizer Malario course university spokeswoman Cheryl Roland says no school workers have been laid off. By the go project. So it'd be hard for union workers to match that kind of performance. Exactly. Because I believe union workers could probably get that the level. Of grass down but right. Another part of it about the droppings now not only knows you have to buy that most users members won't go through that but then and now. Distributed themselves there's just something that we did have a side business may be united yet we get somehow figure out what it's a goats rounded up and impala.

Says he was told in October that Kermit was being recast. And he kept cited as he has tried to address the issues that led to his firing though neither he nor pop Muppet studios have given reasons for his departure. Hollywood reporter and ABC news reported Wednesday that long time Muppets performer mad vocal. Will take over as Kermit. So what could he have done wrong. You know it's via voice of Kermit pro what do you do brawl noble you know. Make him so glad they'll fire you subs don't Ross Sutton is going on yeah he's been up to something so think there's more to this there's got to be so much more. Now the Kermit the Frog voiced what exactly does that sound like. It's kind of ironic isn't it this carrot and Emily.
