to spread over much of the country by sunday. this is just seasonably cold. the arctic air is going to make its first, first appearance, in the entire country. there it is. by thursday, the whole middle of the country is just freezing. and it comes to the east later next week. so we're going to feel that chill. and this weekend, well, it's going to be chilly, but nothing like next weekend, next weekend, i think is going to be colder than what we have seen this weekend. and here's the 10-day forecast, you can see the windy conditions the next two days. relatively cool for this time of the year. generally dry through monday, but tuesday and into thursday, a wetter period and then look at friday. really strong winds bringing you in some of that arctic air. and the first shot of arctic air is really tough on the system. >> it gets your attention.
