D-Day tributes

President Barack Obama is paying tribute today to the World War II and 9/11 generations in a visit to Normandy on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion today. Obama is expected to speak during a ceremony at the American cemetery, where nearly 10,000 white marble tombstones overlook the site of the battle's bloodiest fighting at Omaha Beach.  We'll tell you how D-Day will be observed locally on Sunrise.

Fog, warmer

Some areas will see fog to start the day, but through the morning the fog will dissipate. Temperatures will be back in the mid 80's again this afternoon with partly sunny skies, showers and thunderstorms should stay off to the south and west of the tri-State. Eric Garlick is in for Byron with the 14 First Alert forecast.

Gardens the Swing

The Garden of Club of Henderson is getting into the swing of things with this year's garden tour. Deanna Allbrittin is live this morning on a mini-tour of the gardens.

W.C. Handy Blues and Barbeque Fest

One of the largest free music festivals in the nation will kick off tomorrow in Henderson. Emily Busby will have all the details.

Heat feel heat

Miami's quest for an NBA three-peat began by getting wilted in San Antonio. The Spurs take the opener of the NBA Finals by beating the Heat 110-95. An air conditioning malfunction caused temperatures inside AT&T to approach 90 degrees. That, plus a Belmont preview as California Chrome goes for a rare triple crown.

So enjoy your weekend, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
