pennsylvania and way up into northern sections of pennsylvania. any snow is confined well up to the northeast of us. we're in a bit of a lull now, but another rare of rain is coming from the west. as we look at sentinel radar here, the majority of this now, the first wave, has passed by to the east of us crossing over the bay now and we get a little tighter here. you can see annapolis drying out, so again this is just an eastern shore shower now, but as i mentioned before, there is another wave of rain set to move on across. that i believe will continue with us on and off over the evening through the overnight and then through tomorrow as well. 39 now in the city, gaithersburg down to 37, just about everybody in the 30s. so well above freezing and again it does not look like we have any concerns tonight as this rain passes through, maybe an occasional sleet pellet mixed in and that's about it.
10:49 pm
any problems would be higher elevations well back out to the west and the north of us. wind chill factor, what it feels like, of course, out there tonight wrap up if you have to be out, feels like it's 31 in town, feels like it's 32 for manassas, 30 degrees for hagerstown, nothing we can't hand until january, but begin it does feel a little cooler. look, these are current temperatures. of course, i just showed you 39 in the city, but look at cincinnati, 54 degrees, nashville still 59 degrees, st. louis at this hour middle 60s, little rock 67. so there is definitely an intrusion of warm air coming up here to the tennessee valley coming up to the midwest, chicago right now 41, but there is very cold air lurking, fargo 6 degrees, international falls at 5 degrees and some of the coldest i've seen that's come down to the 48 states, great falls right now is minus 2. so the cold air is up there. the warm air is down here.
10:50 pm
so there's a battle between the two. there's been some showers and thunderstorms tonight out here and eventually we will tap into a little bit of this warm air tomorrow and then we'll get the cold air coming in by wednesday behind that. we're not talking about extreme cold, but it's going to be one day tomorrow where we warm up to the middle 50s and then for wednesday the temperatures come crashing back down to reality. we go from above normal to below norm a. mostly cloudy tonight. it's not going to be a cold -- normal. mostly cloudy tonight. it's not going to be a cold night. this is a wrong graphic. tomorrow morning 41 degrees at 8 anxious showers but well above freezing. noon -- 8 a.m., showers, but well above freezing. noon time we'll have some showers. we may get a glimmer of sunshine in the afternoon and temperatures tomorrow in the middle 50s. this is futurecast tomorrow morning, showers in place for your morning commute. this is lunchtime tomorrow, showers in place at lunchtime
10:51 pm
and then by 5:00 we begin to dry out just a little bit and there is at least a hint of sunshine poking through the clouds, not for everybody, but some of you primarily to the south will see a little bit of sunshine tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening before the sun sets, but after that things get cold tomorrow night. by wednesday 5:00 and 6:00 we'll have cold conditions and breezy, too. so showers tomorrow, 55 degrees, blustery on wednesday as the cold air comes back in, high 41, but it will never feel like that, okay? on thursday mostly sunny and 43. we stay cool on friday with a temperature of 40 degrees and then possibly on saturday morning we may have a brief period of mix, but we stay in the 40s again for saturday as well. remember raincoats and umbrellas for tomorrow. >> you've warned us. the redskins may be out, but the ravens are back in the afc championship game for the second straight year thanks to their defense. >> fox 5's lindsay murphy here now with more on the ravens'
10:52 pm
win and their big game against the patriots now. >> everybody knows offense wins games, defense wins championships and the ravens are living proof of that. their defense has been one of the best in the league at least for a decade. yesterday versus the texans quarterback joe flacco aided by three turnovers that led to 17 point. s. 1st quarter antwan boldin a 10-yard strike, ravens led 17- 3, flacco 176 yards and two scores but the offense only 11th 1st downs. the texans are still in the game, two minutes left. t.y. yates finds ed reed. the ravens beat the texans 20- 13 and punch their ticket to the afc championship game against the patriots, but baltimore is only 1-6 all time versus new england. >> we've gone out there and played before and played on the road a championship game before
10:53 pm
since i've been here. we didn't win that game, but we have won in new england. they're one of the teams just like us that's very hard to beat at home. they play very well up there. we know how tough it is to go in a place like that to win a football game. we'll have to make sure we prepare really good all week and bring our a game up there. >> the only ravens win over the patriots flacco referenced took place in 2009. the ravens won in new england. think about. this if the ravens beat the patriots and the 9er beat the giants, we have the harbaugh bowl game two. that's hard to say. four teams left standing and two of them are brothers. >> i just want the ravens to win. i'm not a fan of the patriots. >> you're a cold girl, aren't you? >> cold -- colts girl, aren't you? >> colts steelers, but i'm just saying in that situation i'm rooting for the ravens.
10:54 pm
>> more power to you. >> thank you. coming up next a behind the scenes look at the golden globes, one winning actor almost not getting past security. we'll explain why coming up next.
