it's so nice outside. now the afternoon is under way and it feels really comfortable outside and and thing too is this time of year the sun angle is still nice and strong, strong enough that it feels warm when you're standing in the direct sunlight so a really nice afternoon and a little hint of a breeze not too much. it's enough though that it does still feel like fall but it also feels very comfortably warm as well and that continues to be a theme for us. we'll warm up by a few additional degrees with almost every passing day but the general trend though is that it's above average so let me get you out there, i'll show you why things are as warm as they are. for now we've just got a completely clear view all in all of storm scan. not going to find any stormy weather on this northeastern view. really any time soon. our next shot to seeright now. so, it's looking good. storm scan empty locally empty across the northeast and it's virtually across the continental united states. you can go west of the mississippi, there's not much to track and the view is very very clear. so, all is well. we don't have any activity in the tropics either. it's just a very tranquil
stretch of weather for a lot of people and frankly we deserve it. now, looking at what's going on, high pressure is the dominating force here. it keeps things very, very spare in the next few days and the sometimes boring is good. i mean look at this much you've got with high pressure dominating dry conditions prevailing for the next couple of days. temperatures as a result at least five, if not 10 plus degrees above their average. the normal high today is still just 66 degrees. and we are already exceeding that in a lot of spots which i'll show you in the temperature map in a second. now, because of high pressure i predict that you're going to see some pretty good viewing conditions this upcoming friday night and that's important because we have your orionid meteor showers. we should have a nice clear view of it. if you're looking closely enough you may be able to see n or up to 20 plus meteors per hour. look in night sky. the moon is not all that bright so even that shouldn't
be hindering your view all that much. it looks like a good excuse to maybe lay out under the stars. that's friday night. for now though we've still got beautiful conditions i see lots of folks enjoying the afternoon on the beach line here. the water is starting to get a little chilly for my personal tastes but it definitely is a nice start to the afternoon and it feels so nice in that sunshine. why not? even up here at pleasant valley middle and high school some of the fall foliage starting to pop on the trees and with that bright blue sky and the sunshine it really is just a nice start to the afternoon. mid, upper 60's like we said. there's a lot of uniformity here and you do start to feel like a broken record in my department because it's just one day after another that looks like this. even though you start off cool, you warm up very efficiently. flirting with 70 already. already we're above average but we're expecting that high to rebound to 74 degrees. it has been quite cool the last few mornings. it's october. no nothing new there. it won't be as chlatesaoblem. with time the clouds begin text k( a little damp at the monday night football game. generally the wettest
conditions don't come our way until at least tuesday but then it could be a pretty goodo dust off the umbrella quite literally. >> a nice until forecast though. >> it's awesome. >> like that forecast. >> yes, i approve. >> jim and i can agree to that. what we cannot agree to is this next story. a california restaurant is embroiled in fried chicken controversy. the owner of the sweetq di reheating popeye's chicken and using some of that in her dishes. >> kimberly sanchez is getting backlash after a customer noticed a popeye's box in the kitchen and gave sweet dixie's a bad reviewret she uses popeye's.g= >> my kitcher]n 't sete tzin#0uatbefvxgú q z6 >> coming up tonight, from help rebuild their lives. our stephanie stahl shows you how it all works and the inspirational stories of recovery tonysifornia alloweenra prankould
