2 forecast. time to bring in lonnie quinn. i'm hoping there's a warmup on the way. getting cold out there. >> let's check with him. >> there's a warmup on the way. this has been a doable winter. skies clearing south to north. 37 in the city right now. 37 the highest temperature we have had all day. we first hit it at 4:00 in the afternoon. officially 3:59. but get this. temperatures from this point forward won't drop overnight. maybe we lose a degree or two but basically we are going to be rising as you get into your day tomorrow. that's all part of my headlines. look at this. tomorrow late into early saturday, chance for some wet weather that's going to move into the area friday and saturday, 50 degrees. the ice cold area will come back monday. on monday, early monday morning at least going to be a coastal storm close enough if
5:44 pm
that, that would be frozen. it would be white not wet. vortex satellite and radar, we have some clouds out there now. we talk about clear skies north of new york city. but this is the air mass that will move in for your day tomorrow. so friday looks good during the daytime hours. more clouds late and that's going to be a rain chance, as well. here's how we pick up on it with futurecast. friday starts okay. here's a good rainmaker but notice the bulk is staying offshore. we are getting clipped by the western fringe of it and it looks like there will be some snow possibly even up in some of our northwest suburbs but eh, some snow for the vermont ski areas and new hampshire ski areas. then you get into your day on sunday. now, sunday looks like we are not going to be catching any activity from this storm until really the overnight hours going into monday. but now you're talking cold air in place. by monday morning real cold air and this which is forecast to be offshore could be close enough to us to give us some precipitation on monday. i'm going to watch that one. i'm not saying it's definitely coming here because thus far
5:45 pm
storms to be offshore but we watch monday carefully. saturday rainfall about a half inch. numbers down from yesterday. but wet weather out there. so friday high temperature 48 degrees. saturday high temperature 49 degrees. again most likely time for the wet weather would be late friday 10 p.m. in the early morning on saturday and 11 a.m. on saturday clearing taking place, cold air sets up on sunday you're 38. then sunday into monday we watch a storm out there. i mean, monday's high temperature only 31. tuesday's high only 30. so the real cold stuff comes back. >> the weekend isn't just a total washout of? >> better news to report for saturday. yesterday we were talking about a washout. now it's in the morning hours. saturday afternoon looks better. >> thank you. up next -- [ music ] >> lonnie, the spice girls video inspiring others to carpool karaoke. >> she is a cook, mentor and
