first child, hope, in honor of her dad. >> this is your little girl. isn't he pretty. he said, that's what right. reporter: stephanie is praying that luke will get to meet his girl, soon, and wants to find the nurse to make it possible. >> if she didn't stop, we would not have luke and my granddaughter would not have her daddy. so i have to find her and thank her property. >> i love you. >> i love you, too. reporter: luke's family is hoping someone knows that woman. the paramedics on scene did not get her name. but she is wear us was the royal blue scrubs. caitlin: what a blessing she was there in the right place at the right time. 130 sea turfs have been released
at the outer banks. they experienced cold water shock. coastguard crew members helped with the rescue and their release. last weekend we told you local places taken them in, and keeping them warm, and helping them with the hypothermia, but the thing that surprises us, steve, it has not been a cold winner for us, that they would be experiencing this now, and what has been relatively mild. steve: yeah. i guess the change in the temperature, though, they might have moved to different places. i'm not sure. caitlin: maybe the swing. because we have gone from very hot to very cold. it has been up-and-down around here, haven't it? steve: i think like turtle. caitlin: let me know when you do. steve: so a potential tomorrow to see snowflakes in the sky. a lot has to happen for that to occur. if it does, it will not be a problem. caitlin: it will not stick, right. steve: maybe to the grass briefly. it might happen.
we don't have to cold air in place like we typically would with an event like this. we will explain this. a live look into durham. son at times. the clouds breaking a part. mid-40's and a few 50's. the temperatures on average, 51 for a high. so again we'll be above that today. enjoy it. this is the warmest day. the numbers will be going down for a while. so a pleasant day today. sun and cloud mix. in the mid to upper 50's for the highs. next week, highs in the mid-30's on monday and tuesday. the lows tuesday morning in the teens and maybe the teens again for wednesday morning. so very cold air. snow, yes. a mix is possible tomorrow until noon. light precipitation is coming in. this is from the triangle northward. by lunchtime, a little bit of light snow out there briefly and then tapering off quickly. by the afternoon we're pretty much done.
if it does happen, you can typically have snow, even with temperatures well above freezing. and here's the only way we can get snow tomorrow, because we're lacking that high pressure to the north, which would supply to really cold air, which we typically would have with a low like this. let's break it down. here is the 5,000 feet and millibars and the temperature up there is at or below freezing. that's support snow. no surprise. and then warmer air and drier air, too, and get evaporating and melting and then raindrops at the surface. but evaporation and melting both cool the atmosphere down. so if that happens notice where it is evaporating and melting the colder air will get pushed farther to the surface it is changing the temperature here removing heat calories from the air. so here we are at the surface,
freezing line. here is the snow has the melts. so the potential does exist. we could see snow tomorrow. accumulated graphics -- it has nothing accumulating for us. snow over us. so the type of snow that is a novelty, not a problem. so keep that in mind. in the 50's. tailgaters not bad. a light jacket. we will watch this area of low pressure developing to our south. that will move right along the coastline and bring some of that mix, but the bigger story after that, boy it will get cold, folks. we're talking mid 30's. that arctic express will be with us for a couple of days. the temperatures will shock you, tuesday morning in the teens. by the way, on martin luther king day it is breezy. you factor in the breeze. oh, boy.
our average high is 51. so -- caitlin: yeah. steve: one day above-average. caitlin: i know that you don't like to look past seven days. but any indication the cold will stick around, hopefully, not. steve: now it should not last too much longer. but i don't trust things more than seven days. seven days is a stretch as it is. but to go beyond that, now you're really -- caitlin: ok, i'm trying to feel better that it will not last.
caitlin: a local family who came to us last year for help needs your help again. you have already started answering the call in a big way. thank you. you might remember this special family. jada and morgan were both born with a rare brain disorder. they cannot speak, walk, or talk. their school said their mom could not send their special meals to school. the school quickly changed their policy. now, they need our help one more time. diane wilson explains. diane: 12-year-old jada and 9-year-old morgan both have very special needs. >> their resistant. you know, they have their own little way. diane: and a very special mom. ursula thompson. >> hi. diane: but as the girls grow it

a cramp in our training, steve. >> by the time i get home from work, the precipitation will be gone. if we get snowflakes in tomorrow it will not stick. and ground temperatures between 42 and 47. caitlin: ok, but the cold, then. steve: a chilly day. yeah. i mean. caitlin: the rest of the week. steve: well, that is the thing. i haven't yet ran with temperatures in the 20's. monday and tuesday morning i need to run. so. caitlin: i know, i hear you. i'm not looking forward to it. i need to buy stuff. steve: more, more stuff. caitlin: running is an expensive hobby. steve: all right. temperatures in the 40's for most of us. 50's, too. look at fayetteville and clinton low 50's. the normal high is 51. so again we're seeing temperatures above that already. the clouds breaking out there. we'll get sun in today. a nice day. take advantage. the warmest day, really for the next week. all right. we'll get sun mixed with clouds today.

for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer.

but we are above freezing at the surface so the now is going to melt. when the snow melts, by the way, some of it will evaporate as well, those two processes cool the atmosphere down. when that happens we're going to see that freezing level getting closer to us. we're still at 40, but the freezing level is a lot closer. here is the snowflake, when it starts to melt, it doesn't have time to mel completely. we will see the snowflakes. if it happens a complete novelty. look at the snow accumulation graphic, really nothing at all, maybe a dusting on grassy surface to the west. that's about it. so anything, it will be neat to see. so a good chance a light rain shower, that is it. u.n.c. taking on state today. the weather is great. tailgaters low 50's before the game. no threat of rain or anything like that. a light jacket. you will be fine. the clouds breaking apart right now.
