little teaser of spring as i said yesterday. we might as well keep this thing going a little bit. here's a live look outside. you might have kind of had to hag on to your hat a little bit with those winds, but the good news is those winds did bring in all that nice warm air from the south. and we're going to keep that trend going just a little bit. so we're seeing just a few clouds but fairly clear into the course of tonight. here are a look the athe highs for today. look at the numbers. 17 degrees above the seasonal average. we hit into the mid 60 at all three airports today. so i don't think it's anything that anyone is going to complain too much about. and it's still fairly nice outside temperature wise and we still have some of the clear conditions. so here's a look at where our temperatures right now. 60 degrees in our nation's capital, 63 at frederick, 62 at dulles. so we've got that southerly flow kicking in and those winds, yes, a little gusty today.
and, you know, but we're going to have that sticking around for tonight. 24-hour temperature change. now this is what it is, the difference is between the temperature yesterday at this exact hour versus today and we're actually, look at this, some 6 to even 24 degrees warmer than we were. so, r a nice little treat as i said from spring. winds are currently fairly strong. we will see them start to diminish somewhat once we get into tonight. here's a look at your planner for tonight. we're talking mainly clear skies. we'll have a few clouds at the beginning of tonight and we'll get to mainly clear and by the time we get to the 9:00 hour, it will be 49 degrees, 46 by 11:00. we don't have any 30s to talk about tonight. really comfortable out there. 46 at dc, the same at quantico, 41 at frederick, 44 at hagerstown, 45 at dulles and 43 degrees at mannasas. so
way to the north, retreated all that cold air has moved up and what's happened is we've got this nice flow that moved in from the south. the good news is it's going to stick around for a little while. we're going to have at least a couple of days where we're going enjoy all this mild air, totally unseasonable of course, and it's going to linger into at least the first couple of days of the week then things are going to take a little bit of a turn. we also have a frontal system that's moving through late tonight. that has a low pressure system is going head off to areas of north eastern canada. but as that cold front as it heads through tonight could give us a little bit of a disturbance. don't be surprised if in the overnight hours maybe anywhere between 6:00 to 8:00 in the morning, you could get a little bit of a sprinkle or light shower. very isolated in nature. we're not talking a heavy downpour or anything of that sort. that system is going to be more to the north of us than anything
else. just be prepared. a chance of seeing isolated sprinkle or so early morning before we get back to nice conditions and of course, we don't want to forget, we'll be back in the 0s once again. once again change is coming up. we'll let you know what to expect on the weather buffet. >> i'm not complaining about 60s. >> thank you, gwen. if you've been thinking about a trip with your kids to disney, get ready to pay more. amusement park prices are going up. beginning today the park is using a seasonal tiered pricing system for one day prices. customers will pay more during busy times of the year. the cost for a multi-day ticket will be going up but the cost for an annual pass will remain the same. >> listen closely, this applies to you. >> i've heard it's already so expensive. but worth it, i think. the kids love it. >> you don't forget that. >> okay. when we come back we've got an
