SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT & SUNDAY

It looks like some wet weather is headed our way tonight with the possibility of some severe storms overnight. A warm front is pushing north from the Gulf of Mexico into Northwest Florida as a storm system to the west of us moves in as well. Both look like theyll make for some showers with heavy rainfall possible at times. We also have the chance to see isolated storms close to the coast. Our chance for severe weather increases Sunday as the warm front tracks northeast. We could see strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and we cant rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Some flooding could be possible due to the potential for heavy rainfall. Stay tuned to Channel 3 News for the latest updates.

WASHINGTON   --  The designers who built the Affordable Care website healthcare.gov were in the hot seat on Capitol Hill today.

Lawmakers from both sides are demanding answers over why people have had so many problems logging into the site.

CGI is the lead contractor - and it's senior vice president said the web program passed eight required technical reviews before going live on October 1st.

After footing the bill, the American people deserve something that works or start over
Frankly, the website should have been the easy part. I'm also concerned about what happens next. Will  enrollment glitches becomes provider payment glitches? Will patients show up
 
At their doctor's office or hospitals to be told that maybe they're -- they  aren't covered or even in the system?
   
There are still no answers on when the problems will be fixed.
But contractors continue to promise that no one will miss next year's deadlines for healthcare registration.
