6:20 am
the east, breakdown this ridge , give us the chance for some cooler temperatures, as we get into the ends of next week. now, future weather for us, not much going on today. we have clear skies, temperatures back up into the mid 80s or so. now on sunday, few more clouds out there. but it is mostly sunny. you can kind of ignore the little areas evergreen, it looks like future weather overdoing the shower chances for tomorrow. and the same goes for monday. it is going to be a mostly sunny day on monday, again, very warm temperatures, and no precipitation. if you are headed down to the birds game tomorrow, 90 degrees right around kick off time. eagles shorts and t-shirts and tank tops what you will need. eyewitness weather, 86 today. ninety tomorrow. ninety-one on monday. and then, we go back to those 80s, tuesday, wednesday, jan, best chance for more average temperatures does not come until next friday. >> okay, matt, thank you. >> well, you spends a lot of time with your co-workers, each and every day, right? but is it okay to friends your colleagues on social media? nicole brewer tells us about a new survey of employees with
