doesn't stick around too longest specially friday and saturday that are looking chilly but then that jet stream lifts north and brighter, warmer colors and that indicates warmer air. we are on the cusp of that, but we will get in on the drop and thermometer readings in the next few days. here are wind speed we are talking about. it is not terrible but winter coats required, folks. you cannot see it but i'm wearing my ugg boots in the studio. it is freezing in here and chilly outside. as we look at the rest of the day expect that things are drying out, but with a high of 52 you are below average. we are chilly tonight. down to 41 but typical. forty-one is our low. look at our best guess for highs here friday and saturday it might as well be christmas with these daytime highs. at lee sun will shine and we will rebound by sunday, meisha >> katie, thanks very much. it was very cold, walking in the studio this morning, good morning, everyone, happy wednesday, we are looking at
