5:30 am
>> we start the half hour with breaking news in the middle east. says loan hijack is her responsible for commandeering an egypt airplane. the airbus was on it way from alexandria to cairo when the hijacker claimed he had a bomb belt and forced the pilot to fly the plane to cyprus. once the plane landed, he let everyone off except for the crew, and four foreigners. the president of cyprus says the hijacking has nothing to do with terrorism. sigh up from government official says the man seems to be in love. "eyewitness news" will follow the story as the morning goes on. >> back here at home, oh, the winds seem to be the story for both the commute and looking out the door this morning. >> absolutely, commute looking good. seek some debris on the roadway, downed wires, downed trees, we do have an accident out there, that's still hasn't cleared. and i guess the running theme is that construction, the winds, the rain, doesn't
5:31 am
matter, construction crews are out there. >> they certainly are. that will slow you down for one thing, like you said, actually debris in the roadway, so i baffled over couple of branches on my drive out of just the driveway this morning, so watch for. that will but, the winds still going to be pretty persistent here today. i would circumstances you know, not as harsh as yesterday was, still enough that i grabbed the winter coat. when you walk out the door here, cold enough for that, and even though the thermometer may read one thing it, actually feels like another. so, let's explain, we get you out there first and for most with quick check of storm scan, devoid of any storms at the moment like we like t high pressure building in, but because it is building in, that is why you are actually get that wind picking up. it is the winds tunnel effect. you have low pressure retreating, high pressure moving in, sort of creates that wind tunnel effect between the areas of pressure. so that's why it was so windy yesterday. why it is still is pretty blustery out there. current sustained wind speeds, mostly coming out of the west to northwest. and that's basically the direction that wind will be flowing all day here today. so because it comes from essentially colder place that
5:32 am
means it will feel that much chillier to you. current wind speeds 20, 21 miles per hour, again, sustained wind speeds, so, that will obviously blow your hat off your head, but also make it feel a lot cooler than the thermometer reads. while these are actually in the thermometer readings through the course of the day, we expect to hit about 56 degrees at the height of the afternoon. it probably is never going to actually feel like it is into the mid 50's, just because do you have factor that in for windchill. i would knock five, 10 degrees off any time for feels like value. bottom line is probably won't feel like it is breaking out of the 40 ' at any point today. definitely more little dose every winter than anything. so, another bluster day on tap. however, down the road, temperatures set to spike again, and we look back in the 70s on one day of the coming forecast, how much, also comes with a price, more rain on the way. and i'll gave you a hint, no fooling, guys, april fools day is coming up here, but i'm going to tell when you the window of wettest weather is set to arrive coming up. >> kate, already planning my
