12 news look outside with live cam this afternoon beautiful weekend and monday kind of feeling like a monday just breaking out there it's kind of odd like there was some sun but most of it's been overcast but we liked the weekend we love the weekend let's just focus on that the weekend was spectacular it was good you could get some yard work done or just get outside and play i had high hopes and aspirations for yard work just didn't exactly come to fruition you were playing well you know daughter and her friend let's go to the neighborhood pool okay who might argue let's go i can get out of this let's go play and have some fun so anyway took advantage of that a few showers are ahead of us the next couple of days i like what i see in terms of rain chances but our storm chances really peak come wednesday night on into the very early morning hours on thursday and as for temperatures we're not going to see a big spike or a big drop we're mostly going to be in the 80s over the next seven days so let's start with a look at our rain chances and talk about this and time it out for you you look at the cloud cover there is plenty of it a lot of it coming in from the southwest it was coming and going throughout the day today but it kept us from getting too hot and too warm out there and this is all mid and upper level pacific moisture that's moving our way which is good it's going to help to saturate the entire column of air above us in the days ahead now what we're focusing on now is this upper level disturbance that's currently over northern nevada that's going to drop southward and very slowly work its way over texas already it's causing a lot of precipitation there throughout the rockies and even parts of the pacific northwest we anticipate it to bring some decent precipitation here to south texas as well in other parts of texas additionally not just our neck of the woods so let's time this out in terms of the future cast and just don't focus on the exact placement of the showers and thunderstorms here as we go through time just the mere fact that they're represented at various times of day tonight increasing clouds low clouds to start the day tomorrow maybe a sprinkle or two we get into tomorrow midday and afternoon 11 a.m noon 3 p.m a few thunderstorms could pop up and especially west of i-35 tomorrow whatever does develop has the chance of becoming strong to severe we get into tomorrow night we'll have some hit or miss showers and thunderstorms same goes for on into early wednesday morning some scattered widely separated activity this is good because it's an unsettled weather pattern rain chances are up but they could come at a cost with a few isolated storms of course that's always a caveat this time of year the main event though right now still looks like wednesday night so let's take you on into midnight thursday so we're talking between about 10 pm wednesday and about 2 3 a.m thursday that's when we should have the most lifted energy a lot of moisture in the air to squeeze out and we should see the most widespread showers and thunderstorms again that's wednesday night so overnight wednesday into very early on thursday morning as for accumulations of course this map is very general and vague but it just it illustrates the fact that we could see over an inch to two in some parts of south texas where we get some of the heaviest downpours won't surprise me at all not everybody is going to see that though 85 right now dew point is 61 dew points are on the rise it's going to be very sticky late tonight and especially early tomorrow we're mostly in the 80s right now as i mentioned before this evening pretty uneventful temperatures gradually falling off through the 80s and 70s we'll start the day tomorrow at 70.

40 percent chance of showers and a few thunderstorms throughout the day tomorrow 85 the high temperature rain chances peak wednesday night and then into thursday we're looking at some gusty winds even wednesday and thursday prepare for gusty winds and thursday we should dry out a bit in the afternoon all right some things to watch this week thanks adam all right when the spurs traded away kawhi leonard they got demar derozan back a lot of people forget they also got yaakov pearl that's right has been a pleasant surprise in my opinion not a well-known name for spurs fans but is making a name for himself as we speak by defending the rim and also attacking the rim and if that wasn't enough his free-throw shooting is vastly improved when we come back what is yakupurdo's ceiling he will tell us and a cowboy star in fact legend retired coming up our san antonio players continue their four-game road trip on the east coast now starting with the wizards in washington tonight that's after they were able to hold out the pelicans in new orleans on saturday night 110 to 108 behind an unbelievable performance by demar derozan almost didn't play with a right quad contusion it's a very good thing he did as derozan saved his best for his last scoring 11 of his team-high 32 points in the final seven and a half minutes of the game including taking his game right at pelican star zion williamson who had a game-high 33 points to keep the spurs at number 10 now and in playoff tournament contention and putting more space between them and new orleans who are now at number 11.

But the play of yakuperla in the middle has been nothing short of amazing in fact you could call him the most improved player of the year for the silver and black he missed a new career high in blocks when he finished with five against new orleans and had a shot at number six but derek white came in from the other side when jackson hayes decided not to challenge jakob poder by the way was asked during the team shoot around today what could be his ceiling now that he's taking off because i don't really measure my performance by my stats i think the stats like naturally go up with more minutes but um it's not really something i look at in terms of like value my my uh effectiveness on the court so it's hard to like set a ceiling for myself but honestly i think there there's a lot of room to play so i think i still got got plenty plenty of room to i till i reach myself all right playing eastern conference teams used to be a check mark in the wind column for the most part for the silver and black but not this season even though the wizards do not have a winning record they're still at number 10 in the eastern commerce like the spurs in the west and in contention for the playing tournament for the playoffs and they are coming off a eighth win in a row last night against the cavaliers the game was tied at 108 all late in the fourth quarter when the wizards go on an 8-0 run to close out the victory russell westbrook to daniel gaffer for the two-handed slam and then westbrook drains the long jumpers wizards win that one 119 to 110.

Next up for the spurs will be underway in just a matter of minutes 6 p.m highlights for you tonight on the night beat pro football coverage powered by davis laugher after 11 seasons with the dallas cowboys shawn lee has decided to retire for the nfl telling us it was a complete honor and blessed to play for great coaches and teammates that i love like brothers although lee fought back from injuries many times when healthy the two-time pro bowler was one of the top tacklers in the league and he said in his closing statement today's retirement statement he said he owes a lot to the trainers they earn their money with him yeah it's going to be hard to think of him as not part of the team maybe coach lee someday what do you think okay that makes sense yeah thanks greg we'll be right back that is all of our time for now thanks for watching the news at five world news is next and we'll see you right back here at six o'clock you
