News 2 Know: Officer busted in prostitution sting, teen accused of stabbing father to death and more

Good evening from Click2Houston.com.

Thursday's almost over. Fifty years ago today, the crew of Apollo 11 was closing in on their rendezvous with history. In just 48 hours, Neil Armstrong would go down in history as the first man to ever walk on the moon.

We’ve been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing all week. Last night, we aired our hour-long special that focuses not just on the journey but also Houston’s role in the historic mission. You can watch it on-demand at Click2Houston.com/Apollo.

Now, let’s wrap up your day with a look at the forecast.

Weather

Highs got to 96F this afternoon with triple-digit heat indexes. As we head into the evening, no rain is on the radar and temps are still in the low-90s. We'll slowly sink through the 80s with plenty of humidity, so grin and bear that outdoor dining tonight. Tomorrow starts with 78F goes to 90F by noon and tops out in the mid-90s again with just a 10% rain chance. The weekend ahead doesn't offer much change but perhaps a better sea breeze shower chance by Sunday. Check Frank's full forecast for more.
