this goes the storm system leaving the northeast. we focus over to our west and there are a couple of other areas of low pressure but this guy over here, he stole all the ingredients to continue making pizza and big storms. so as these weaker storms come through, they'll get to the ocean and say there's nothing left. so i think we'll have a lot of clouds the next several days and there may be an isolated snow shower or two on wednesday but that's about it. for some of you that might have to get a broom but nothing significant or widespread. friday a mix of clouds and sunshine. another round of arctic front. temps below zero to start the day on valentine's day. >> thank you, jr.
