it. 66, easton. 68, ocean city. we're at 63. 59 in cumberland. and 60 in oakland. locally, temperatures in the low to mid-60s. winds now, a little stronger, elkton, up to 20. ocean city, wind at 8 miles an hour. we -- haven't had really strong wind gusts. 20 to 30-mile-an-hour wind would have come down. we haven't really seen that. i guess that's one blessing. all right. we still have low pressure. still sitting. ure can't even it. it's sitting often the coast of let's say virginia and north carolina. but an upper-level system has taken shape here in northern virginia. and that's where the northern circulation is. the rain is still coming in. moisture still coming from the atlantic ocean. it will be suppressed a little over the weekend. low moving a little further to the south. still a chance we'll see drizzle, at least for times. sunday, i think we may have a little brightening. a little dryer air can move in.
northeast winds up to 20 knots on the bay. bay temp, still stuck around 71. tonight, still rain and drizzle. 55 from time to time. not all the time. tomorrow again, light rain occasionally and drizzle. so it will probably be wet, if you're going to any football games or anything outside tomorrow. just dress for a damp day. >> all right. >> no, you warned us. still ahead on eyewitness news at 5:00. you know, in obama care is really, i think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. >> shocking comments from former hopkins neurosurgeon, dr. ben carson. what else he had to say today at the summit. honoring a dedicated employee, killed in a tragic crash.
