IT'S A BITTERSWEET ENDING, NOT JUST FOR LENO. IT'S ALSO THE LAST SHOW FROM "BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN BURBANK". THE HOME OF "THE TONIGHT SHOW" SINCE JOHNNY CARSON MOVED IT FROM NEW YORK IN 1972.

"I was in New York as a young comic in the early 70s when the Tonight Show moved to Los Angeles, and it seemed like the most exciting thing in the world, because it had always been in New York. So now, to see it go back to New York, I think it'll bring a renewed excitement."

AND A NEW START FOR A NEW, YOUNGER VOICE..

"I did it for 20 years and it was great. 22 years. And it was a lot of fun, but you get older."

63 YEAR OLD JAY LENO IS GRACIOUSLY PASSING THE TORCH TO 39 YEAR OLD JIMMY FALLON.

" I will do my best to make you proud every single night. Thank you."

AS JAY TAKES HIS FINAL BOW, HE GOES OUT ON TOP AS THE LATE NIGHT RATINGS KING FOR THE PAST 17 SEASONS. Return to index of stories...

LENO HAS PUBLICLY STATED THAT HE'S NOT PLANNING TO DO ANOTHER TONIGHT SHOW IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

OTHERS HAVE SAID JAY MIGHT DO SOME SPECIALS FOR N-B-C AND MAYBE A CAR SHOW.

BUT SO FAR NOTHING HAS BEEN CONFIRMED. WHAT IS CLEAR. JAY LENO IS GOING OUT ON TOP.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

MORE CLOUDS FOR FRIDAY

After the fog burned off Thursday morning, much of the day featured sun & clouds, with highs in the low 80s. This evening will again feature some cloud cover, the chance of an isolated rain shower, and numbers falling into the 70s. Fog may develop in a patchy fashion with mild lows in the mid 60s.

The frontal boundary responsible for the clouds will linger across the region for Friday. This will again result in partly sunny skies and the chance for a few widely scattered showers. Friday will also be muggy with highs in the low 80s.

We start the weekend Saturday with pleasant conditions. Expect partly cloudy skies Saturday, with highs in the low 80s. Clouds increase late as the frontal system finally pushes into the region. Scattered showers will likely develop Saturday Night with the front.

AM rain showers will be possible Sunday, before clearing skies and cooler weather arrives. Highs on Sunday will only push into the upper 70s, with lower humidity values.

The start of next week looks comfortable and dry. Monday will feature plenty of sun, with highs pushing into the low upper 70s. We will start a warming trend Tuesday, with temps back in the low 80s midweek.

Our next weather system arrives late Wednesday into Thursday, bringing another chance of scattered showers mid to late week. Return to index of stories...
