6:17 am
temperatures, and a bare minimum. 66 or 67, and a few spots, maybe climbing into the mid 70's ahead of the next front that would eventually arrive here on tuesday with the chance of a shower or two. my temperatures mid to upper 50's across the good part of the state and dropping in the 30's overnight tonight with high clouds starting to drift in. those high clouds move away early tomorrow morning and as you'll notice gives way to partly to mostly sunny skies again. the warmest of the day will be columbus day, we'll slip back with a chance of a shower or two tuesday, thursday, leading edge by colder air, by the time we get to next weekend, we could be talking highs in places in the 40's. i was eavesdropping and heard that. it made my heart flutter. your department has marked serious magic. >> that's a bad habit of yours to be eavesdropping, you shouldn't do that. >> i was. >> a family tradition nearly 60
