your three degree. >> no, no, no, that was in cumberland. today's high of 63. as we did get above that. but we've got the 65. that is over the last 23. that we will gladly take that. my three-degree guarantee for tomorrow is 62. and i think that we'll have a few more clouds in the morning that it will not be as cold. but we will see as that could be a little low the way that things are looking. hey 50s now. they are way up. if this is above the average high, the average high is 61. so we will be near the mid-50s. and cumberland in the 40s here new at the bay. the water temperatures in the lower 40s there. and the capital dome looks nice out there for the michael and son weather camera. clear skies, one of the reasons why they are so mild tonight with the southwesterly s.
that is keeping the air mixed with the mild weather around and ahead of the cold front, which will be arriving tomorrow morning that they could give us the early shower as it will be breezy tomorrow. from the southwest wind, more of the northwesterly wind that will bring us slightly cooler night and we will be starting off with higher points for tomorrow's high that it will be mild though, no doubt about that. and wednesday will be the yellow weather alert day. behind the system on wednesday, that it is going to get colder for thursday and friday. if everything comes together maybe just a little bit of snow on friday, a thing of flurries or snow showers, but still some uncertainty in that forecast here. let me show you what's happening here with this warm system going on with a lot of arctic air up in canada that it does not have a prayer of making it down towards us as you look at the pacific ocean. storm after storm that keeps coming into the west coast to push all the air up
will stay up here. we've got what this is called the zonal flow. it will continue to push these storms west to east across the country with a little bit of snow in those colder spots if northern minnesota. then we've got the rain showers that have been building across indiana. ohio, and they are approaching eerie, pennsylvania at this hour. we will need to watch this front here as we head into tomorrow morning. out ahead of it, the air is mild. again we're in the 50s in most spots now with a few 40s. i'll giveout timetable on it. by 5:30, expect this rain to be approaching garrett county through pittsburgh, over towards buffalo and rochester, down towards oh almost the state line of virginia and west virginia. then we will watch it. look at how much that moisture gets rung out on the mountains with a few showers here and there in the valley. 8:00 to 8:30 that the front itself will be just crossing through us. that's why we could have a couple of showers, why also without too much activity that there is no we
alert for tomorrow. by 10:30 the the best shower chance is pushing over towards the atlantic coast with the the mild air. even though that the winds will be more northwesterly those temperatures in the lower possibly mid-60s tomorrow. as we get into tuesday, we will be ahead of the next system. so it looks good on tuesday that it will be nice and mild and this one producing pretty good snow across parts of michigan and indiana and ontario and we'll be on the warm side of this. as we get into wednesday, we've got some rain potentially some mountain snow in the colder air. but notice that by wednesday midday it passes us. that's why on wednesday, well maybe the yellow weather alert day and then we will watch that chill move in for the second half of the week. again, we'll be watching that system for potentially on friday. right now that system will be in the pacifics. the amount of data we will collect will not be as widespread as once it will make landfall in the west with a lot more data for their computer model with be
that's why i say it's still up in the air with temps in the 40s, not too cold. partly to mostly cloudy. tomorrow a shower possible in the morning with breezy 40s and 50s. we will have highs in the afternoon from the mid-50s in our far northwestern suburbs down towards fredericksburg. thinking 62, 63 here in dc, breezy and mild with some of the gusts that could be over 25 miles per hour. 62 on tuesday that it will be nice and mild and showers likely wednesday with the possible weather alert day. still 60 as it will be colder later on in the day on wednesday. thursday in the 40s. friday i think will hold in the 30s. you'll need that sleet by then and then over the weekend we'll be turning temperatures around. >> i'm happy going to be wearing the sleeves. >> weather looks fine for that. and that will not be an excuse for you. >> all right sounds good. i hope you like this story, let me tell you 10 million view
