of weeks, we can't muster up anything. remarkable. 60-degree readings up to you know what happens. it is not a harbinger of the rest of the winter. outside tonight, so spectacular. the empire state building, that is a hint, from the setting sun, but it is in blue. the jimmy v classic. we see a lot of cloud cover. as we look down to the south right now, we are at 54. a light northwest wind around 3. there is also some haze and some fog or smog actually, underneath what is called the inversion right now. the air quality is rather poor. till about midnight. otherwise a pleasant evening with temperatures slowly going down to the 40s with the clouds coming in at the right time, it is a bit of a blanket insulation for us. the temperatures don't fall off the cliff right away. north and west, a little different story. the clouds are a little thinner. and look for example, tuxedo in orange county. suburbs. we will dip down to the freezing mark by 11:00 tonight.
4:43 pm
thin enough tonight and there is a little bit of fog that forms, there can be some icy spots on area roadways tomorrow morning. north and west. the way tomorrow plays out, some clouds especially early, from the city on eastward and north. and then they will probably be some breaks in the clouds mid morning. one more round of clouds tries to come in the middle of the day. varying amounts of clouds during the daytime. and because of the cloudiness, the numbers are in the upper 40s. which is basically where we should be this time of the year. it is the coolest day of the week. which is only around average. look at the numbers as would we go through tonight. notice as the clouds roll in, they are thiner to the west and the storm offshore may throw out enough shower activity, far enough west, so that long island getting brushed by some showers. especially suffolk county. and the temperatures in the upper 30s now, have to watch out for maybe an isolated slick spot. look at the temperatures near freezing north and west and if we see any fog like this
