5:49 pm
stay with us the next few hours then calm down late evening and during the overnight hours. 59 degrees in the city. gaithersburg 55. annapolis 60 degrees. across the bay, cambridge dropped to 59 degrees. chilly on i-81 with temperatures in the mid-50s. once the clouds came over head and we became mostly cloudy to even cloudy, the temperatures in the low 60s in some spots got cooler, back to the mid- to upper-50s. this is what we are seeing now, detroit 46 degrees. columbus 43. pittsburgh 44. look at beckley, west virginia, 39 degrees. there is a cold core of air primarily aloft but basically making it cloudy. there is showers farther north, up into the northern sections of the midwest. 57 at 7:00. 50 at 11:00. i think by 11:00 we will have
5:50 pm
40s in the suburbs. mostly cloudy now. a few clouds at 9:00 and partly cloudy by 11:00. the winds will come down a bit over the next few hours. it will be gusty until 9:00 or so then i think it will calm down. we started off with sunshine and we clouded up this afternoon thanks to this big upper level storm system that is sitting and spinning back to the northwest of us. that's one reason why the winds have been strong. we are getting a lot of jet energy on the bottom side of this storm system along the jet stream here. this is a closed area of low pressure. but don't worry. this won't be affecting us for the weekend. it's moving on and in its place we get this dominant area of high pressure. now, for the weekend, it's a dominant area of high pressure but it's at the surface. aloft we will have clouds coming into this. it won't be a perfectly sunny weekend but it will be dry and

5:54 pm
by being late. she didn't have to show up today. she said she would show up today. so according to the judge, as long as she complies with 16 hours by november 2 she will be okay but i'm sure the judge won't be happy that she disrupted their entire operation by saying she would be there then showing up late. >> this girl just can't get her act together. thank you for bringing us up to date on that situation. meanwhile, french president nicholas sarkozy and his wife are feeling happiness over their baby girl. they did not reveal the name of the baby and during the pregnancy the wife said she would never release any photos of the new baby. >> congratulations to them. let's head over to brian bolter. >> following several developing
