8:22 am
currently, a kind of a toasty 10 degrees. looking at the "power of 5" now, this is that high pressure that is taking over and it's going to continue to sweep in here as we head into your mid- afternoon. that's what's going to allow for our skies to clear going into your valentine's day. now, it's going to be short- lived. due to the area of low pressure that is tracking in from our west and our south. it's already causing winter weather advisories, winter storm warnings well towards our east here. it's going to be come in from the south towards the east and provide with us a little bit of snow as we head into overnight into your early morning commute for your monday. so i need to you soak up all this sunshine for your sunday and look at our temperatures. we're on the rebound. yesterday we were barely out of the single digits. so nearing 20 as we head into the 3:00 hour. we'll start to be on that downward trend but i think 17
