that i put on my children's plate. that's why we use all-white meat, breading that is whole grain with omega-3 and no preservatives. it is my goal to make the highest quality, best-tasting nugget on the market. i want consumers to go, "dang, that's a good nugget." >> this morning, we have had a lot of sun and a few clouds. it made for a pretty sun rise and there are more clouds to the west so some will be a dominant feature today.
it will be a little cold but out to the west, we see the snow in a system that is coming in. it is a clipper that comes out of central canada which is not what would not much snow. the mountains might get to-3 inches but i don't think we'll get that much. this will be paid like the one yesterday. there is a little bit of cloudiness this morning with a lot of sun coming through and 21 at the airport and 25 at the inner harbor. the barometer is falling in the southwest wind -- and the southwest breeze is 5-7 miles per hour. ridiculous warm temperatures last week and we are on the way down now. that storm we had yesterday morning was the final nail in the coffin, said to speak, that allowed the cold air to come in and the northwest winds were brutal. we will stay below the average.
which is 47. there is a slight warm up for next week. 22 in annapolis and 27 in cambridge. 19 in frederick and still in the single digits out in oakton this morning. the snow makers are out to the west and are connected with this little clipper system that is tracked out of canada. there is another one coming into montana and the dakotas and another one coming off the pacific ocean in british columbia so we will see a series of these come across the area over the next week. 27-32 will be the height to do with increasing clouds and light snow late in most of it will fall overnight. this engage says 1 inch or less of snow in our area and most of it will be to the north. -- this gauge.
mostly overnight tonight into sunday morning and tuesday night into wednesday morning, we could see snow chances. otherwise, highs in the 30's with morning lows in the 20's and warm up at the end of the week. >> more simple girl coverage -- more super bowl coverage is coming up next. >> dr. kim is here to answer your pet questions.

love. you have to really train your dog that that is not acceptable behavior. you give them a little tug on their leash but you have to always been negatively reinforce that snapping. go to a puppy training class. they are $85. a puppy will live 16 years so get it trained properly. >> part of the discipline is not only with the dogs but with the owner. >> snapping is unacceptable. >> package for joining us this morning. -- thank you for joining us this morning. more is coming up, stick around. the'm reporting live at super dome where we will interview mayor stephanie rollins blake who has made her way to the big easy, next.

pennsylvania. we are starting to tease -- to see some snow moved into the area. the air is dry on this side of the mountain so when the air across the mountains late this morning and this afternoon, the snow will evaporate and these little clippers coming out of canada do not carry a lot of moisture anyway. when it comes through, it will be a light snow producer in most of it will be overnight tonight. let's look outside, there is the view of the inner harbor and some scattered clouds overhead, 21 at the airport and the inner harbor is 25 and the humidity is only 42%. when the storm comes in, it has to get everything wet before it starts to snow and that will take a while. the southwest wind is at 5 miles per hour which is not helping to warm things up. we're into a strong flow out of canada of air that is holding the temperatures down. in the south, the readings are in the 20's.
to the west, is the -- it is in the teens. here is a little band of clouds that are not snow makers to our western drifting across the area. the real snowmaking stuff is still in the mountains westward. here is that in polls moving into northern illinois. these clippers come out of canada and they come out of cold air and lose a lot of their moisture moving across this land. they are starved and there's no way to collect moisture. a new one is just coming into the dakotas and montana and another one coming off the pacific out of british columbia. they are lined up and waiting to invade the area. 36 below at international falls. it is not that cold here but the calls we're getting is coming out of that area so it will stay called for a while. we will struggle to make it to freezing today, increasing
clouds, light snow blade that should be overnight. there might be 1 inch or so and southwest winds are 6-12 miles per hour. our computer is saying maybe a little bit more in frederick and out was but 1 inch or less around here. in the new orleans area, it looks like it will be nice. partly cloudy skies for the weekend, high temperatures in the mid-60's, loews and the 40's and it does not make a difference at the stadium because it is under cover. -- 30 our forecast today, 35 tomorrow, light snow late tonight and sunday morning, maybe a flurry in the afternoon. tuesday and wednesday, a light snow maker coming through. >> if you don't have a cold or the flu, you might know someone who does.
we tried to avoid getting sick so how you keep your immune system at its best? the doctor joins us now to explain. give us some good tips. >> basically, you have to keep yourself healthy in general. you have to wash your hands all the time. you have to eat healthy and state well hydrated and break -- and drink plenty of water. fruits and vegetables and lean meat helps. that way your body is ready and plenty of sleep. there is immunization as well the flu vaccine is very important. people have to remember that they get other immunizations because the human body respond better to immunizations at a younger age. as we get older, it is harder to be more in tune.
>> don't you love it? this is the baltimore city police department showing support for our raven's with officers and staff members who got together to offer their well-wishers to the team. like the rest of us, they posted the video and youtube. if you're watching the big game at home, you are shopping, there is quite a spread here. >> nice to see you. i've been cooking my whole life, since a detained. since i'm getting older, you have to do things differently. i have a healthy quesadilla and it is pretty simple. >> is that cold rain? >> of this is nature's promise from a giant. >> it is a whole wheat tortillas? >> then you get some fresh salsa and mixed in with the cheddar cheese.
it is southwest salsa. all the flavors are in the salsa and you put it right on the quesadilla and van -- the cheese is mixed in with the chicken curry and then you toast it. it takes about three minutes on each side. another way you can do it is in the oven which takes 10 minutes. that will give you 10 minutes prep time and 10 minutes in the oven. >> i can do that. >> there is also healthy cile, no oil. this is a really good recipe. let it simmer and it will take you 35-40 minutes. >> that looks good, to. >> another recipe i gave you is a citrus grilled shrimp. >> what are you marinating them in? >> the recipe is on the website. chili sauce, honey and a girl
about 3 minutes on each side. here is the chili. giant is the officials supermarket of the baltimore ravens. >> when you go into giant, you can see that for sure. >> you can also get ingredients for gumbo. >> what is the key to making that to? my husband thinks he can whip it up. >> the key to a good gumbo is to start off with a good stock like chicken or crap, don't burn it. >> lisa tries to show me how to make it. >> you are going the wrong way. >> what else do have? >> this is made exclusively for giant. our bakery has an array of things like a ravens take.
>> is this chocolate mousse? >> it is not healthy but i like this recipe which is on your website. it does not have a lot of sugar. it is an easy recipe. >> i will be scared of all that. it looks terrific. i love the bread bowls. just get some particle? >> yes, we have quite a collection of brad's. >> thank you so much. stay with us because we have another look at the weekend forecast when we come back. >> from local artists to art galleries, mindy basara will explore this city's rich cultural com

tonight we have a chance of light snow and that chance would extend into sunday as well but when we talk about light, we're talking about little or no accumulation. there may be 1 inch or so. high temperatures the next couple of days only around freezing if we make of that for today. monday will be drier we have the threat of monday and tuesday and wednesday of one of these fairly dry systems of light snow flurries or snow showers. we are in the 30's in the middle of the week but at the end of the week, things may dry out a little bit with more son and a southerly breeze to bring the temperature is up to about 43-45 which is normal for this time of year. in new orleans, daytime temperatures are in the 60's but the game is undercover so does not make any difference but it is nice weather down there. >> they have had a strange way. >> it has been on the cool side. when it gets cold, it is cool their. >> thank you. everybody have a great day and
