front. the last of the shower activity. the most -- the most organized is now to the southeast. s at the present time. a lot of folks will get between 60, 63, or 64 this afternoon. the cool spot right now, out at peace, 48 degrees. direction is key. that will help to feed in milder air. the coldest air that has been overhead over the last couple of days, now retreating into canada. this is for the time being. we get a surge of warmth thursday. the wind turns north and we bring the cooler air back in here starting on friday. partly cloudy skies this afternoon. starting that way this evening before more clouds built in later tonight. the thickest of the cloud cover will be in the southern half of the state, starting with
sunshine, only to add clouds later in the afternoon. the best chance of a shower might be up north with a cold front coming in. from there, the cold front arrives on thursday. with that, you will notice a broken line of showers. nothing that will last all day. this is where we are for the next four to five days. nothing to focus in on. just a couple of spurts here and there. there is the front moving back thursday evening. that clears us out for friday. partly to mostly cloudy skies, but temperatures will drop back into the lower-50' s. 50' s to lower-66 afternoon as we go from the overcast sky to partial sunshine. the extended forecast shows the ups and downs. tomorrow, a few more clouds.
back in the low- and mid-50' s. let' s head to "grow it green. sean: we talking about ways to help certain plants survive the winter. we are joined by margaret hagan. i did not know you could do a lot of this. what are we doing today? margaret: about the time the first hard frost hits, the things that will not make it over the winter, they are called summer bulbs, even though most are not actually a bald, have to be brought inside and stores so you can replay of because they are gorgeous. who does not love dahlias, but they do not make it over the winter. so, about this time of year, you want to go out to your garden and cut things back to six or eight inches, and gently, with them out of the garden. you do not want to bruise or wound them because that will make it harder for them to survive the winter indoors.
let them cure for about 10 days -- put them on newspaper, maybe in a dry, cool place. then, after that, once the dirt has dried on them, you can go through with a gentle brush and give it a little bit of a cleaning and they are stored. sean: it comes off easy. margaret: it comes off very easy. then you can store them for the winter and there are a number of different ways to do that. so, you can put them in a plastic lag -- a black one, and punch holes in it with a pencil so that there is a little air circulation. my grandmother used to put them in an onion bag and hang it in her heated garage or down in the basement. you can put them in a damp paper bag with some damp piedmont. for all of these methods, you need something to go between the
you can use sand or peat moss. you can put them in boxes, put the bulbs in, and put the filler in on top, too, so lots of different ways to do it. if you are lucky enough to have begonias, or your elephant ears, in a pot, just bring the pot in. sean: bring the whole thing. margaret: bring the pot in, take it down to your cool, dark basement, and store them for the winter. italy thing you might have to remember is maybe twice through bit of water to survive. ones you are storing in these ways, you need to check them, maybe january, again in february, in case you have a few out. sean: great. margaret hagen, this is a great i did not know these things give them a winter home.
