Hundreds of jobs at risk and high

street branches to go as the Norwich and Peterborough

:00:08.:00:09.

Building Society announces plans to close.

:00:10.:00:13.

the warning from Badminton bosses as they campaign against cuts

:00:14.:00:17.

We are smashing so many things in the sport, doing so many things, and

:00:18.:00:31.

this decision could absolutely pull the rug from under us.

:00:32.:00:33.

as major structural problems are found in a main

:00:34.:00:37.

And I am here at Anglesey Abbey in the stunning but chilly winter

:00:38.:00:44.

garden. First tonight - more than three

:00:45.:00:51.

hundred jobs across this region are at risk tonight,

:00:52.:00:55.

as the owners of the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society

:00:56.:00:57.

announced it will be scaling back its branches and losing posts

:00:58.:00:59.

at its headquarters. In all, 28 branches will close

:01:00.:01:04.

across East Anglia and up The Norwich Peterborough Building

:01:05.:01:07.

Society brand will also disappear from our high streets

:01:08.:01:16.

later this year. This from our business

:01:17.:01:17.

correspondent Richard Bond. It has been a trusted name on the

:01:18.:01:31.

high street for decades, with 45 branches across the region. But soon

:01:32.:01:35.

the Norwich and Peterborough name will completely disappear, it all

:01:36.:01:42.

the Yorkshire building society to close 28 N and P branches including

:01:43.:01:46.

this one of the outskirts of Peterborough. It does have an effect

:01:47.:01:51.

on people in the area which is particularly felt with the older

:01:52.:01:56.

community year but also for the young people, so my younger brother

:01:57.:01:59.

uses it because it is near to where he works. It is a bit of an upset

:02:00.:02:08.

because people have to travel further, for those who love appeared

:02:09.:02:12.

especially because it is the neither place. Be changes put at risk 340

:02:13.:02:17.

jobs, in branches and at the headquarters in Peterborough. After

:02:18.:02:23.

the closures, only 17 branches will remain under the Yorkshire brand. It

:02:24.:02:29.

was formed in 1986 to the merger of the Norwich and Peterborough

:02:30.:02:33.

building society is, for 20 years the organisation thrived but had

:02:34.:02:37.

suffered a major setback about ten years ago when it started selling

:02:38.:02:41.

the investment products of a company called Key data which went bust.

:02:42.:02:46.

Customers were compensated by the scandal cost them ?57 million, and

:02:47.:02:53.

led to the Yorkshire takeover. The Yorkshire CV banking market is

:02:54.:02:56.

changing, more customers are conducting business online and use

:02:57.:03:02.

of high-street branches like this is declining by 7% per year. Further

:03:03.:03:06.

investment in that network can't be justified. But the argument will

:03:07.:03:14.

disappoint thousands of members who inspect -- expect a building society

:03:15.:03:17.

to provide a good branch network in places where the big banks aren't

:03:18.:03:20.

represented. These are some of the place is set to close, the changes

:03:21.:03:24.

due to take effect from September this year. Members are being

:03:25.:03:29.

encouraged to embrace online banking but some elderly customers may find

:03:30.:03:31.

that difficult to do. I asked Chief Executive

:03:32.:03:39.

of the Yorkshire Building Society, Mike Regnier, what the

:03:40.:03:41.

changes would mean. The thing that makes building

:03:42.:03:47.

society is different from banks is the overall objectives are

:03:48.:03:51.

completely different, the building society objectives are to act in the

:03:52.:03:54.

interests of our members, we don't have shareholders, we look at the

:03:55.:04:01.

members. And provide the best service and best value. Lots of your

:04:02.:04:05.

members value having a local branch to visit and a person to talk to.

:04:06.:04:10.

You are not providing value for them. What is important to say is

:04:11.:04:13.

that for most of those people the nearest branch will still be two or

:04:14.:04:18.

three or four miles away from the one closing because in the main we

:04:19.:04:22.

are proposing two ) is where we have another branch in the close

:04:23.:04:26.

vicinity. We will still have 260 branches and agencies on the high

:04:27.:04:33.

Street. It will be branded. And from our perspective that is still going

:04:34.:04:37.

to be a significant investment in face-to-face service. This will

:04:38.:04:41.

involve a certain amount of job losses, where all those come? Branch

:04:42.:04:48.

level or at the headquarters? In East Anglia we are consulting with

:04:49.:04:50.

our colleagues at the moment and these changes will take effect on to

:04:51.:04:55.

the next 18 months so our priority really is to see how many of those

:04:56.:04:59.

colleagues that we have spoken to today we can find them out of

:05:00.:05:02.

employment for because we do have a number of months for us to find them

:05:03.:05:07.

alternative rules were that is possible and where their skills

:05:08.:05:09.

match and very find something they are interested in doing. A lot of

:05:10.:05:14.

people might be sad and losing the name, Yorkshire does not mean a lot

:05:15.:05:18.

to them. Any understand that and how can you reassure them? While the

:05:19.:05:24.

name might change them while the pink and purple blobs might change

:05:25.:05:30.

to green, the service customers get day-to-day will be just as good if

:05:31.:05:33.

not better than I was. And for those branches it will remain, it will be

:05:34.:05:38.

the same people there that customers can turn to to help them with their

:05:39.:05:39.

needs. Badminton England,

:05:40.:05:40.

based in Milton Keynes, says success at the next Olympics

:05:41.:05:42.

is in jeopardy - unless funding Public money for badminton was cut

:05:43.:05:45.

after the Rio Games, despite two MK players winning

:05:46.:05:49.

bronze in the men's Our sports editor Jonathan

:05:50.:05:51.

Park has this report. They want to turn bronze into gold,

:05:52.:06:07.

in Tokyo. But right now and medallists Marcus Ellis and Chris

:06:08.:06:10.

language can think too far ahead. They like the other players training

:06:11.:06:15.

at the National Badminton Centre face an uncertain future after the

:06:16.:06:21.

sport's funding was cut by UK sport. Healing the news was obviously a

:06:22.:06:26.

real kick in the teeth for us and everyone, I don't think anyone could

:06:27.:06:30.

believe what had happened. It was not just the case of funding reduced

:06:31.:06:36.

it was to nothing. 18th of August 2016 the day Marcus and Chris won

:06:37.:06:39.

Brent's first-ever men's doubles awarded medal but before the year

:06:40.:06:45.

was out the UK sport decision not to -- made the decision not to spend a

:06:46.:06:49.

penny of the budget on Badminton. This was leading up to the Tokyo

:06:50.:06:54.

games in 2020. Badminton has launched an appeal but still must

:06:55.:06:57.

prepare for the worst if the appeal fails. We have to prepare for what

:06:58.:07:02.

life without UK funding could be like, it has been a challenging 56

:07:03.:07:07.

weeks, we have a number of staff at risk of redundancy and the courtesan

:07:08.:07:11.

at risk of redundancy, we informed the players about what they -- the

:07:12.:07:15.

programme could look like should we not be successful here. UK sport's

:07:16.:07:20.

Badminton snub means that Marcus and Chris may have to fight between 60

:07:21.:07:25.

and ?70,000 each in the run-up to Tokyo just to be competitive. A

:07:26.:07:30.

court is ?10 per hour and retrain sex hours a day and we need six

:07:31.:07:35.

courts so that is a lot of money in itself. These are not luxuries,

:07:36.:07:39.

these are the basics we need and then turn its wise if we are not

:07:40.:07:43.

travelling a pointer internment our opponents in competitions are and

:07:44.:07:46.

they go up in the ranks on the go down. Badminton players and coaches

:07:47.:07:50.

and management are confident in the sport's ability to win Olympic and

:07:51.:07:55.

paralytic medals in Tokyo and beyond. The head to London in two

:07:56.:07:58.

weeks' time for the appeal to be heard by UK sport in what will prove

:07:59.:08:03.

to be a pivotal moment for the sport.

:08:04.:08:04.

As you probably know by now, it's the 50th

:08:05.:08:06.

birthday of Milton Keynes, and, as we reported on Monday,

:08:07.:08:08.

the event is being well celebrated across the town.

:08:09.:08:10.

Today the celebrations extended to Westminster with MPs

:08:11.:08:12.

from the Prime Minister downwards lining up to offer

:08:13.:08:15.

Let's join Andrew Sinclair who's down there tonight.

:08:16.:08:18.

It was the 23rd of January 1967 that the orders creating the new town of

:08:19.:08:30.

Milton Keynes were drawn up in the building and me. Parliament doesn't

:08:31.:08:34.

normally celebrate anniversaries of towns, but Milton Keynes's two MPs

:08:35.:08:37.

were determined that this anniversary should not go unnoticed.

:08:38.:08:43.

This week Milton Keynes celebrates its 50th birthday. It started at

:08:44.:08:50.

Prime Minister's Questions with the MP for NK cell is saying the praises

:08:51.:08:55.

of his hometown and inviting the Prime Minister to join in. Think

:08:56.:08:59.

Milton Keynes is a great example of what you can achieve with a clear

:09:00.:09:02.

plan and with strong local leadership. Then the unusual step of

:09:03.:09:08.

the whole parliamentary debate devoted to the subject. At

:09:09.:09:15.

politicians in Milton Keynes share a passion for the place. Mr Stewart

:09:16.:09:23.

said there had been a sense of excitement and optimism among the

:09:24.:09:25.

early settlers particularly those who moved out of the slums of

:09:26.:09:30.

London. Milton Keynes had lived up to expectations he said but could

:09:31.:09:34.

not rest on its laurels. Projects like the Northern powerhouse and

:09:35.:09:39.

Midlands engine meant that the town still needs investment to grow.

:09:40.:09:44.

Milton Keynes future is as exciting as it passed. The other MP Mark

:09:45.:09:48.

Lancaster is a government minister, he said Milton Keynes was becoming a

:09:49.:09:54.

centre of high-tech innovation. More homes would be built but he made

:09:55.:09:59.

this promise. I before E or infrastructure before expansion and

:10:00.:10:03.

economic growth should be the drivers for local growth in Milton

:10:04.:10:07.

Keynes. An MP from Oxford said he would forward to the expressway

:10:08.:10:12.

being built, the Bedfordshire MP praised the large number of trees in

:10:13.:10:16.

Milton Keynes. No one said anything nasty today. But then you don't own

:10:17.:10:20.

birthdays do you? Which makes you wonder what the

:10:21.:10:24.

point was today. It keeps Milton Keynes on everyone's radar and as

:10:25.:10:27.

Ian Stewart said any publicity is good publicity.

:10:28.:10:29.

Drivers are complaining of traffic chaos,

:10:30.:10:31.

and villagers are complaining of drivers using their small roads

:10:32.:10:33.

It's all over the continued closure of the A6 in Northamptonshire.

:10:34.:10:38.

The Highways Agency says structural problems with the road are far worse

:10:39.:10:41.

Stuart Ratcliffe has been to find out more.

:10:42.:10:50.

It is this small section of road which is causing big problems. A

:10:51.:10:58.

routine inspection last week raised serious safety concerns and the road

:10:59.:11:03.

was immediately closed. The foundations are dropping away from

:11:04.:11:07.

the road surface and we found a void, essentially we found a gap and

:11:08.:11:10.

what we have been doing is serving the entire area and over the weekend

:11:11.:11:16.

we were doing GPS surveying and realising that is more significant

:11:17.:11:20.

than we first thought. And that we need to carry on doing what

:11:21.:11:25.

investigations and work. That means the ASICS is now closed between

:11:26.:11:30.

junction three on a 14 and there's brass. The diversion is to take

:11:31.:11:34.

people through Corby and Kettering and vice versa but some are ignoring

:11:35.:11:40.

that advice and this is the result. It causes bedlam on the old ASICS

:11:41.:11:44.

between Rothwell and Desborough, the amount of vehicles that come into

:11:45.:11:49.

Rothwell is awful. The lorries, they have put a sign up this banal HGVs

:11:50.:11:55.

but big articular cant see them and the other evening there was an

:11:56.:11:59.

articulated lorry at the end of a road trying to turn. Causing even

:12:00.:12:05.

more chaos. Cars along each end of the road could not move. It is not

:12:06.:12:09.

just the road through Desborough and Rothwell which is taking a hit. At

:12:10.:12:13.

rush hour these tiny country lanes also become rat runs. It has

:12:14.:12:21.

increased 24 to what normally does. It would be a real challenge to get

:12:22.:12:24.

anywhere on these little roads at the moment. The full extent of the

:12:25.:12:29.

work needed here is not yet known, nor is the exact reopening date.

:12:30.:12:33.

Engineers say they are hopeful that it will be before the end of

:12:34.:12:34.

February. The former Prime Minister David

:12:35.:12:36.

Cameron has become the new president of the charity Alzheimer's Research

:12:37.:12:38.

UK based in Cambridge. Mr Cameron, who resigned

:12:39.:12:40.

from parliament in September visited the Cambridge Drug Discovery

:12:41.:12:43.

Institute at Addenbrooke's He made dementia a priority

:12:44.:12:44.

during his time as PM. He kick-started a drive

:12:45.:12:51.

to deliver major improvements The charity said he will act

:12:52.:12:53.

as its highest level ambassador. That's all for now. It's join Stuart

years, and it reached record levels The service says it's

been its busiest winter ever. Today, the board of directors

:13:47.:13:49.

met in Cambridgeshire. Among the items up for discussion,

:13:50.:13:51.

growing demand, a shortage of paramedics and handover

:13:52.:13:55.

delays at hospitals. But the trust says it is making

:13:56.:13:57.

progress on response times. In a moment, the chief

:13:58.:14:01.

executive Robert Morton, after this from our chief reporter,

:14:02.:14:04.

Kim Riley. Pressure on the Ambulance Service

:14:05.:14:08.

has been steadily building over the winter, with demand leaping

:14:09.:14:11.

by almost a third last month. Between Christmas Eve

:14:12.:14:15.

and Boxing Day, control room staff handled just under 7000 calls,

:14:16.:14:22.

800 more than last year. The Department of Health national

:14:23.:14:24.

standard requires paramedics treat 75% of the most serious

:14:25.:14:26.

life-threatening calls In December, the East

:14:27.:14:28.

of England Ambulance Service While not hitting the national

:14:29.:14:33.

targets, the trust claims, week-by-week, it's consistenyl now

:14:34.:14:38.

one of the best-performing Our hospitals are under

:14:39.:14:41.

intense pressure too. The report, at today's meeting,

:14:42.:14:47.

highlighted that delays handing In December, delays of over 15

:14:48.:14:51.

minutes reached over 7800 hours. The equivalent of some 682

:14:52.:15:00.

12-hour ambulance shifts. Southend, Colchester,

:15:01.:15:03.

the Norfolk and Norwich and Peterborough among

:15:04.:15:05.

the top contributing hospitals. A national shortage of paramedics

:15:06.:15:08.

has led the trust to back up its recruitment drive at home

:15:09.:15:14.

by looking overseas. Nine candidates have

:15:15.:15:17.

been offered employment It's now considering furtehr

:15:18.:15:19.

recruitment in Australia The trust says it's treating more

:15:20.:15:28.

of its sickest patients within the eight-minutes target

:15:29.:15:31.

than ever before, and is moving towards meeting national

:15:32.:15:33.

performance standards. But the recruitment problem,

:15:34.:15:35.

an ongoing dispute with the main union,

:15:36.:15:39.

Unison, and a significant financial deficit are among problems that

:15:40.:15:42.

still have to be faced. After that board meeting, I asked

:15:43.:15:57.

the Chief Executive Robert Morton about the financial measures at the

:15:58.:16:01.

trust. He said the need to to spend more than they had in order to keep

:16:02.:16:05.

patients safe. If we did not spend this money now,

:16:06.:16:10.

effectively, we would not have sufficient capacity to respond to

:16:11.:16:14.

the huge rise in demand we're experiencing across the east of an.

:16:15.:16:18.

Secondly, there would be tremendous pressure on our workforce. Us, as a

:16:19.:16:24.

trust board, the pressure wave had to maintain this deficit to ensure

:16:25.:16:29.

we have sufficient capacity to respond to patients, maintain the

:16:30.:16:33.

safety of service and the well being of our workforce.

:16:34.:16:37.

You talk about your workforce, the trade dispute relating to late

:16:38.:16:40.

finishes are still ongoing. I spoke to you about that when you first

:16:41.:16:46.

joined, 18 months ago? We have worked in partnership with

:16:47.:16:51.

Unison and developed a number of measures to address the issue of

:16:52.:16:55.

late finishes and disturbed meal breaks. The feedback we've had from

:16:56.:17:00.

our workforce generally is that those changes have been positively

:17:01.:17:04.

received. But Unison has reiterated the threat

:17:05.:17:10.

to ballot for strike action if its demands aren't met?

:17:11.:17:14.

One would expect a trade union to continue to maintain that option.

:17:15.:17:18.

The reality is, we do continue to work together in partnership, we do

:17:19.:17:22.

continue to talk between our organisation and Unison. So whilst

:17:23.:17:29.

the statement is there, the reality is the risk of industrial action is

:17:30.:17:33.

low at this stage. You're still, as a service, failing

:17:34.:17:38.

to hit your targets. How much of that is down to the problems you

:17:39.:17:42.

have with handovers at hospitals? Is good percentage is due to hand

:17:43.:17:48.

over delays at hospitals, particularly across the festive

:17:49.:17:52.

season, we've seen continued correlation between weight for

:17:53.:17:57.

ambulance in areas where there are a long hand over delays.

:17:58.:18:02.

So you haven't got enough money, you have difficult relations with the

:18:03.:18:07.

union and you're dealing with a creaking NHS. What would your

:18:08.:18:10.

message to beat the Health Secretary this evening about those pressures

:18:11.:18:14.

you're facing? Clearly, we would want or money and

:18:15.:18:19.

want it now. I think the Secretary of State with gift us that money if

:18:20.:18:22.

he had available to him. But thing, accordingly, what we also need is

:18:23.:18:28.

continuing recognition of the pressure we're all under and that's

:18:29.:18:31.

where a micro doing our best underdog but circumstances. I've

:18:32.:18:36.

heard is a recognition that is it case from the Secretary of State.

:18:37.:18:38.

Thank you. Two weeks ago, our coastline was

:18:39.:18:41.

bracing itself for the devastating effects of strong winds

:18:42.:18:43.

and spring tides. Thousands of homes were

:18:44.:18:45.

evacuated, and the sea But while many places

:18:46.:18:47.

were left counting the cost, at Orfordness in Suffolk,

:18:48.:18:50.

they were counting their blessings. There, the waves dumped thousands

:18:51.:18:52.

of tonnes of shingle on the shoreline, and that

:18:53.:18:55.

could prove vital in a battle Once again, the volunteers are

:18:56.:19:12.

stepping into the breach on the beach. This, the latest phase of

:19:13.:19:18.

work costing more than ?6,000 to try to delay the now redundant

:19:19.:19:24.

structure's collapse, using these shingle-filled sausages. While it

:19:25.:19:31.

has weathered the recent swell, for once, the waves proved friend, not

:19:32.:19:35.

phone. We felt that the old girl was

:19:36.:19:38.

putting up a good fight, so we decided we would help her. Given

:19:39.:19:45.

some fair winds and a kind tail end to the winter, we should be able to

:19:46.:19:50.

get visitors over here again this year.

:19:51.:19:54.

Built in 1792 using three quarters of millennium breaks, it's over 750

:19:55.:20:03.

feet tall, with another 20 feet underground. It was decommissioned

:20:04.:20:07.

in 2013, now owned by a trust driven by passion and pride.

:20:08.:20:13.

It's landmark that everybody loves. Went you drive in, the first thing

:20:14.:20:17.

you see out to sea as the lighthouse. It would matter be --

:20:18.:20:24.

Orfordness without a lighthouse would be disastrous.

:20:25.:20:28.

We will take it year by year and at the end of each winter we will be

:20:29.:20:32.

able to assess how she's got through the winter. Will have time from when

:20:33.:20:38.

we can't get visitors here any more, but the lighthouse still saved, if

:20:39.:20:41.

that makes sense. That's when we will start dismantling and moving to

:20:42.:20:47.

the next phase of the plan. These are voice pipes, Wessels would go

:20:48.:20:56.

all the way down to the kitchen. The keeper good summer his mate come up

:20:57.:21:01.

here and give him a hand. They will hope to salvage an exhibit

:21:02.:21:05.

in the museum this and other artefacts from the inside. The very

:21:06.:21:08.

top of the building will be taken away preserve too. They know that

:21:09.:21:15.

they will sue calm, but for now it is all about digging in and battling

:21:16.:21:23.

on. Surrender, never. I always loved those moments when

:21:24.:21:28.

you say, I never knew that. Powered by whale oil, well I never.

:21:29.:21:31.

If you say Anglesey Abbey to most people, especially

:21:32.:21:33.

at this time of year, most people will say snowdrops.

:21:34.:21:36.

Over the years, the Abbey - which is run by the National Trust -

:21:37.:21:39.

has built a reputation for its winter garden.

:21:40.:21:41.

For the last 40 years, the man in charge has been Richard Todd,

:21:42.:21:44.

but now he's stepping down as head gardener.

:21:45.:21:46.

The nationally acclaimed winter garden, here at Anglesey Abbey -

:21:47.:21:58.

From red dogwood to whitewash bramble.

:21:59.:22:03.

That's the beauty of a winter garden.

:22:04.:22:06.

You can't be unhappy about what you're seeing,

:22:07.:22:08.

because they're fantastically bright.

:22:09.:22:11.

Richard Todd has worked here since he was 22.

:22:12.:22:13.

He planted much of this garden and designed a lot of it.

:22:14.:22:16.

Now he's retiring, his successor will need to constantly maintain it

:22:17.:22:21.

It's not a job for the faint-hearted.

:22:22.:22:26.

Not only are you running the garden, making sure

:22:27.:22:29.

maintaining all of those things - big team to look after,

:22:30.:22:33.

Obviously, there's lots of emotions around that, because it's

:22:34.:22:39.

But think it's the right time for me to hang up my boots, as it were.

:22:40.:22:49.

The real jewel in the crown here are the snowdrops,

:22:50.:22:54.

What are the challenges facing the new head gardener?

:22:55.:22:58.

We've got one right here, this is the first of our named

:22:59.:23:01.

We've got 350 in the collection, you've got to get your head

:23:02.:23:05.

round that, to tell the stories, tell the differences

:23:06.:23:07.

Richard is now going on to become the garden consultant

:23:08.:23:11.

for the National Trust in our region.

:23:12.:23:17.

If you'd like to fill his shoes here, applications close

:23:18.:23:20.

Does look lovely. Beautiful, very cold, but don't get

:23:21.:23:33.

colder? Yes, it today wasn't called enough.

:23:34.:23:38.

Promoter us across the region, it was misty and foggy, temperatures

:23:39.:23:43.

just above freezing. Beautiful photographs, a misty scene and

:23:44.:23:47.

Norfolk this morning. Another one here in Northamptonshire. That's how

:23:48.:23:51.

we start the evening, a lot of messed around and low cloud. Spots

:23:52.:23:56.

of drizzle possible, even the odd snow through the night. That throws

:23:57.:24:02.

up a problem of ice on untreated surfaces through the night.

:24:03.:24:05.

Temperatures will drop below freezing quite rightly, down to

:24:06.:24:11.

around minus two Celsius. In those frost-prime spots, it could go a

:24:12.:24:15.

degree or two lower than that. As we get drier, colder, continental air

:24:16.:24:19.

bossing the region overnight. That is going to be a feature of the

:24:20.:24:26.

weather tomorrow. High-pressure starting to head eastwards, we get

:24:27.:24:31.

this south easterly wind. A lump of cold air across the continent,

:24:32.:24:35.

across us tomorrow. We start tomorrow on a cold note anyway, a

:24:36.:24:41.

widespread frost. Potential for icy conditions as well. Cloud around,

:24:42.:24:46.

and once more at the of drizzle, a snow flurry as well. Essentially, a

:24:47.:24:53.

dry day. Is this dry air comes in, we'll studies ease and brightness,

:24:54.:24:56.

perhaps even sunshine in parts of the region, across that southeastern

:24:57.:25:01.

corner. Temperatures were some of us, not above freezing all day.

:25:02.:25:07.

Factor in the wind-chill, as easterly breeze, it will bitterly

:25:08.:25:12.

cold. It will feel subzero for Match Of The Day. The good news is it

:25:13.:25:18.

won't last, but it's going to be a widespread frost. A shift in

:25:19.:25:25.

pressure pattern, Friday a transitional day. High-pressure

:25:26.:25:29.

starting to rake down, Atlantic weather systems pushing and from the

:25:30.:25:34.

west. We'll study get more of a southerly wind. Celeste Coles, not

:25:35.:25:38.

warmer, but less cold. The potential for more cloud, and patchy rain on

:25:39.:25:48.

Friday. Not raining on Friday, but cloud around, dry interludes and

:25:49.:25:53.

spells of patchy rain. Temperatures recovering, up to 7 degrees on

:25:54.:25:57.

Friday. The weekend a similar pattern, dry, cloudy at times,

:25:58.:26:02.

chilly at night, but not as cold as it will be tomorrow.

:26:03.:26:07.

Thank you. 80 degrees on Saturday? Hardly

:26:08.:26:14.

swimsuits! -- 8 degrees on Saturday. See you tomorrow, bye-bye.

:26:15.:26:17.
