>> now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. >> zack: good saturday morning, folks. looking at quiet start to the day. left-hand side a little bit of cloud cover rolling through in the overnight hours, but clear skies is going to be the dominant factor all weekend long. so, after some of the rain, yes, some of the snow we talked about in the past few mornings, not going to be the case for the weekend. you need to get outside and enjoy it. and then the temperatures, although chilly right now,
into the mid and upper 20s for those in the mountains, they are going to be rising up. we will be a few degrees below average for this time of year this afternoon but we are certainly going to see the warmth on the way for the second half of the weekend, monday as well as tuesday, and then we start toe see our next system rolling through. but, overall, for the next few days, high pressure will be the dominant factor and it is a very broad ridge. we are talking about going from the central plains all the way to the eastern seaboard without any activity and limited cloud cover. but i want us to look further west. we are talking about way out into the northwest portion of the united states. there is a low pressure system idaho. we don't usually see these systems making it all the way across the nation without breaking up just a little bit. but, this is actually going to continue to pick up energy as it does come across the u.s. and that's going to be bringing us our next chance for rain, but it's not going to be coming until we make our way into tuesday. so we have a few days of really nice, really calm, comfortable weather on the way.
the activity as we head through the rest of the day today. the wind vectors, where you see the white lines are very small. i do think things will remain calm through the morning hours. later on this afternoon, we could pick that breeze up just a little bit. anywhere from about 5-10 miles per hour. nothing in terms of gusts. certainly not as warm as what we have seen in the past few days and then by tomorrow, that's when things are really going to start clearing up and be absolutely gorgeous. very unseasonablelike temperatures and we will be back in the low 60s for tomorrow, monday, as well as tuesday. so, overall, not a whole lot to complain about. 49 degrees is what we are forecasting in asheville. as i mentioned we will jump the temperatures up for the next three afternoons into the low 60s. that's just area-wide, but then we have another system to be talking about. we will stay dry over the next 72 hours and by tuesday, that's when we will increase the chances and then by wednesday, it becomes a little bit more widespread and hard hitting but i think at that point we can bring a wintry mix into the system. so, overall, not too much to
i think tomorrow, certainly going to be the pick of the weekend. just in terms of temperature, but overall, you really don't have a whole lot to say. we have a lot of sunshine on the way in the next 48 hours. tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday, that is going to be our next chance for some rain. maybe even snow mixing in. as we decrease the temperatures by thursday, that's when we could see flakes returning to the mountains. >> evan: how about tomorrow going to be pretty warm? >> zack: that is going to be the one. i think you need to head outside outside. >> evan: maybe we will celebrate tomorrow. scott carver used our "see it, shoot it, send it" feature of a picture of a blue jay. >> zack: you can send video to wlos.com or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com. >>darcel: the new approach that can keep parents and child appi coming up on this weekend's "health wrap." >> evan: make sure you're up to date on all the weather happening. we have a little bit more winter to go. your daily skywatch weather

insect present in high level, it's hard to outnumber< them. the alternative strategy is, okay, we won't try to eradicate it, we will try to change them so they can no longer transmit the disease. >>darcel: the gmo antiviral genes can be used to fight more than just the zika virus. experts say they can also stop the spread of other mosquito-transmitted condition, like enself-litis. mention appendicitis and most of us think surgery. but, when it comes to children, is that really the best option? as news 13's holy headrick report, a study suggests children with appendicitis could be treated with antibiotics alone. >> it was during the holiday break a couple years ago the gibson family plans nearly fell apart. the area was set to star in a school play and her parents book add surprise trip to disney, when suddenly area was rushed to the hospital. >> i checked her out and did an ultrasurround and they told us she did have appendicitis. >> holly: normally that means emergency surgery within hours
luckily, area was at nationwide children's hospital, where doctors conducted the first study of the u.s. to see if they could skip surgery and treat appendicitis using only able yox. >> at least at the end of the year, we know that over 3/4, more than 75% of kids who chose antibiotics did not have to have surgery. >> holly: whether it's surgery or antibiotics, dr. kate deans and dr. pete medi chi ( ) said parents need to pick the method that suits their family. >> it's a matter of aligning your preferences, your values and biases and what you think is most important to you with the therapy that's best for you and your family. >> if you don't have to be surgery and in pain, if you don't have to have the risk of surgery and anesthesia, it was worth a try. >> holly: it's been two years since area's bout with apen disitis. she may be too long to appreciate the novel approach her doctors took to treat her, but her family will never forget the experiences they shared as a result. >> it was amazing. she was able to do her musical
world with no problems, and we were really thankful that was an option for us. >> i feel great. there's nothing i haven't experienced, anything else. i haven't -- it hasn't hurt or anything. >>darcel: it's time to check your heart health. this is national heart health and local health experts say a balance of exercise and making healthy food choipses are keys to better heart health. for those in need of a heart monitor, they say there are now more compact and that's helping patients. >> i think it's just the ease and convenience, the light weight of the new technology that they are able to just kind of be free with these. routine. >>darcel: that's this weekend's "health wrap." >> evan: another beer festival on tap. today in asheville, this one is different. what sets it apart after the
>> >> zack: welcome back. a chilly start to the day. we are used to that at this time of year. 29 degrees right now in asheville, but calm winds, and clear skies. and those clear sky, they are going to stick around all day long. so, the sunshine is going to help warm things up ever so slightly. we are still going to be a few degrees below our average for the time of year this afternoon. but, by tomorrow, that's when things are certainly going to be warming up. we will be in the low 60s on sunday afternoon. and that trend is going to follow us for monday and tuesday, and then we start to see a bit of a system rolling through for the middle of the week. i would say no complaints over the next 48 hours. get outside and enjoy some of the clearer conditions.
absolutely stunning out there. >> jay: happening today, beer lovers will converge in asheville, if they are not already here, to do more than drink a pint or two. the asheville beer expo will feature panel discussions, industry experts and beer tastings. the idea is to give the aficionados in the asheville beer community, an inside look at what makes great beer. it also introduces them to the craft experts who make it all happen. >> this is a different kind of event. we wanted to offer something more experience like and have a more intimate exposure to the breweries and the beers an also our associate members which are critical to the success of the industry. >> evan: there are two sessions today at the expo, from 1:00 to 4:00, and 5:00 to 8:00. it takes place in downtown asheville at the venue. >> it can impact anyone, and
