>> brody: there is a lot going on here. >> lyndsay: a lot. >> brody: do you know what we're doing? >> lyndsay: i have no idea. >> brody: we have product test, i have all the bells and whistles we need here. we're trying out, i like the idea of the product, i'll give
you the quick gist. chef eggs, instead of peeling eggs off the hard boiled eggs, you crack the egg in these devices right here and then you boil these devices and then you plop out the egg. >> lyndsay: interesting, that is funny we've done a product you boil it and then it -- remember that thing where it gets the shell off right away? >> brody: it sort of works. >> lyndsay: this is kind of the reverse in a way. >> brody: i don't know how official, we have a an egg contraption every week. >> lyndsay: what else can we
>> brody: to give you an idea, i'll learn how to do this before we test product. but -- >> lyndsay: that would be nice. it gives you six in one box. in case you need to hard boil six. >> brody: i get a good dozen so i have them for the week. so you see the devices
you crack the egg. we already tested this, our producer did, we'll show you the final product, we'll crack eggs in the little devices later to show you how it works. and i'm kind of curious to see how it turned out. this is something i would use because sometimes it works for me the peel comes off right away, other times by the time i get all the peel off i'm gown to the yolk, a wild scene. >> lyndsay: we'll see coming up. a wild scene, all right. we have again cold weather on the way for the weekend and big storm for monday. a lot to touch on here.
so we can show it to you after just being able to talk about it but not necessarily track it over the past couple days, our storm is now over land, over the pacific northwest, a look at where it is now, this is also good now because our weather models are able to get a much better handle on a storm that is actually over land. so hopefully our picture will become clearer over the next 24-48 hours, we can pinpoint the details better as far as the snow, sleet and freezing rain mix. in the short term, we have got our arctic area of high pressure over the upper midwest. this is what will be the weather maker for the weekend, so the air beneath this arctic high is just bitter cold as you can imagine, we have below zero readings all the way in places like minneapolis, where it is six below and these are actual air temperatures, this is not your windchill, 5 in chicago right now, that makes our 28 in charlotte in comparison not look
will be headed our way, spreading south and east, which is why you will hear about potentially record breaking cold, dangerous windchills in new england and northeast, and for us here, well below average temperatures we don't anticipate any record breaking locally, that is still going to be about 20 below average. 37 the high today. with lows tonight in the teens. 15 will be our overnight low tonight. all right, let's talk about monday with all the cold this weekend that is going to be setting the stage for this to start as a wintery mix, first thing monday morning. that arctic high pressure will be situated off to the northeast, that cold will be stuck in place so by the time this system comes in from the southwest, on sunday morning and will be cold enough to support first just plain snow for everyone and then a mix of snow to sleet to freezing rain through the mid-morning hours, this is futurecast at 8:00 a.m., you see more pink indicating
transition could occur as early as 8:00 a.m. from snow to sleet to freezing rain, and then as the system comes in from the west, draws in more of a south wind. the south wind is agreeing to warm things up enough this cold gets pushed back farther north and anything wintery, anything frozen or icy changes over to just rain by the time we talk about monday night and into tuesday. that is why amounts with this should stay fairly low, two of the main models the gfs and european for total snow fall accumulation keep things under an inch, we think that is a good estimate, an inch, maybe just eclipsing 1-2 inch mark for us before everything changes over to just rain by monday night and into tuesday. storm pulls out by tuesday and then look at that, the rest of the week, finally we'll have more spring like weather, warming things up nicely to the upper 50s to near 60 by time
brody, back over to you. >> brody: is your college student about to graduate, and do they have a job lined up? if they don't, they are not alone. according to the 2014 after college survey, 17% of graduates have a job in place after getting a debris. a new program at unc charlotte is designed to change that number. wbtv's dedrick russell on your side with how that program works works. >> reporter: meet unc charlotte senior sharoyal and brian, graduation day is coming both have no jobs, but they are not alone. their friends are in the same unemployment line as they are. >> a big concern. and they are doing whatever they can but at the same time it is not easy. >> both have signed up for the go higher workshops. here are pictures of the program in action. student meet once a week for two hours, for six weeks learning skills to get a job. >> definitely not what you will get out of the gentlemen near

night will be almost over with, at least, but until then, we have to tell you about it. a live look overuptown from over uptown, overall the sky is mostly clear for us with the sun coming up behind our skyline. official sun-up at 7:12, very cold, 28 in charlotte right now, we have teens in the mountains and check out the temps upstream, this is just arctic high pressure responsible for the temperatures, it is 18 below, that is the actual temperature, that is not your windchill, that is how cold the air already is, 18 below in winnipeg, 5 in chicago, beneath the arctic high and that is what will be responsible for the weather during the weekend as that continues to slide south and east, it keeps things very cold for us, not only locally, but through much of new england as well. record temperatures will be
then,challenged. this storm will be here by daybreak monday morning. highs in the teens, you see more sun as you drop southeast from there. so right around the freezing mark in the foothills today, mid to upper 30s for the charlotte area, call it 37 with a mostly sunny sky and pretty much full sun across the upstate as well with the highs continuing in the upper 30s. tonight, the coldest we go, drop to 15 for the overnight low in the charlotte area, not record-breaking but it is cold enough and just for perspective, 5 below is not only the record low temperature for tonight, but also the all-time record low temperature in charlotte since records have been kept. this is the coldest it ever was recorded. so it would be pretty impressive if we were to break an all time record low and though won't be and that won't be happening. clouds tomorrow, 7:00 a.m.
around for valentine's day, and then by daybreak, monday, here we go, this is 4:00 a.m., with the snow showers in place by the time we wake up, first thing monday morning and then we start to see a transition over to ice. i'll show you here instead of futurecast, what is actually going on and why, we are going to see that transition, thread this red indicates warmer air moving in. more warm air moves in, first in the upper levels of the atmosphere, which is why we transition from snow, then to sleet, then to freezing rain, and then once we warm things up enough, not only aloft but at the surface, that is when we see the transition just to rain and again, here is going forward in time, so by about noon, that may be a little bit early on the timing but looks like by the afternoon and evening, the snow, sleet, ice is replaced by just rain, by monday afternoon,
tuesday, we stay in the upper 30s, storm ends as rain tuesday and by later part of next week, we not only have sunshine but warmer temperatures, high of 60 by next friday. brody, back over to you. >> brody: thanks, lyndsay. next on wbtv news saturday morning a last minute dinner idea for valentine's day, that is sure to impress your date. bonefish grill back in studio, stick around, we'll have ann interview with grade, great

>> a classic surf and turf. filet mignon. worchestershire sauce, maybe even some dijon mustard, just a little bit. crack fresh salt and pepper. >> you have two filets. how much mustard did you put? >> about a teaspoon. then you can kind of give it a coating and let it sit there for maybe 5, 10 minutes. >> does this benefit from marinating longer or okay for a couple minutes? >> i always say marinate as long as you want, more flavor will go in the meat that way. >> you coat them and you recommend throwing them on the grill? >> we like to grill. four to six minutes on each side depending on the doneness, too cold outside, put it in the cast iron skillet, in the stove. >> what is in your opinion the ideal temperature, medium, medium well? >> i like my steaks medium, pink
however you like your steak, cook it to the doneness you like. >> i'm with you, i do like that medium if you have a good cut like a filet. you're doing the surf and turf. this is our lobster tail. get the ribs cut. >> i was going to say i'm happy this. i had this adventure at home a year ago, you start on the underneath part. >> you have to snip the under part to get in there and then use your kitchen shears and cut down the middle. get the little bit of a "v" so this meat will come out. use a cocktail fork or teaspoon to loose tn the meat and should come out. >> cut the ribs first and then work your way through the actual shell. >> that's right. >> perfect.
to get the meat out, how are you cooking that, what is -- if you're at home i've seen you can boil it, broil it. >> steaming is the best way. little old bay spice, shake a little on there, as much or little as you like and steam for four or five minutes. >> what does steaming do that is better than other ways to prepare it? >> you don't want to boil it, all the flavor will come out. i much prefer steaming plus when you fan the tails out you steam it, it is a beautiful plate presentation. >> your date is going to be impressed. you have other ideas and i understand you guys are doing the sunday brunch tomorrow for valentine's day, what do you have featured. >> the cream brulee, bang bang
egg, on english muffin. with>> cocktails and dessert. >> chocolaterrem, bru leering l iselee.wild orchid martini. >> tropical escape for you there. >> like to talk wine pairings, if you try to make this at home you want with the filet go with a cab? >> absolutely. >> white with the seafood. >> if you have surf and turf, drink what you like. if you want something that is a little lighter, maybe pick a pinot noir, also stand up to the flavor of the lobster and old
