-- 40s and in town we can't get much cooler than this but some of the dew points actually in the upper 30s. some areas will be in the upper 30s this morning with -- tomorrow morning that is with radiational cooling. so a very chilly night tonight. then i want to mention a couple of spots in the 30s. gorgeous sunday and monday. my goodness, it going to be some fine weather around here after the chilly start tomorrow. we're up in the low 70s and i think mid- to upper 70s for monday and tuesday but on tuesday, there's a chance for a shower. front is coming through not a lot of moisture to work with. so i don't think we'll have too much activity but that's the next chance of a shower and then we're going to cool down especially the second half of next week. friday is another front and behind that saturday, we may not get out of the 50s next saturday. some signs are pointing to that. talked about south carolina the rain you can still see the rain in eastern north carolina and south carolina. but other than that, lots of high clouds streaming in from the northwest. but with high pressure building
in from erie, pennsylvania, that's helping to just squash the wind and allow for a very chilly night. that high as it moves east, that's why we're going to have this nice little warmup but until then, really nice really quiet. if you're one of the folks who likes the sleep with the windows open. it may be too chilly for that. but i think you can turn it off monday and tuesday and probably tomorrow afternoon. so real quiet sunday morning. futurecast shows nothing around here. so sunny skies. light winds. it will turn south-southwest at 5 a beautiful sunday afternoon. and may believe you're headed up to m and t for the football game or down to d.c. for taste of d.c.. whatever your pleasure tomorrow afternoon, weather will cooperate. then on monday, more of the same except there's going to be a few degrees warmer. we'll start out sunny and we'll be sunny midday. sunny in the afternoon. perhaps a few clouds here and there especially southern maryland and the northern neck. and then there's this little front coming in on tuesday with a chance of a shower, you know monday night into tuesday. other than that, rain chances

the great beauty of owning a property is that you can create wealth through capital appreciation, and this has been denied to many south africans for generations. this is an opportunity to right that wrong. the idea was to bring capital into the affordable housing space in south africa, with a fund that offers families of modest income safe and good accommodation.
citi got involved very early on and showed an enormous commitment. and that gave other investors confidence. citi's really unique, because they bring deep understanding of what's happening in africa. i really believe we only live once, and so you need to take an idea that you have and go for it. you have the opportunity to say, "i've been part of the creation of over 27,000 units of housing," and to replicate this across the entire african continent. baby! mom! i love that we're spending the weekend together. oh i know! hey, why don't you turn off your phone and all your stuff. good idea. it's off. mom? oh my internet is so slow when anyone else is using it. did you like want to do something? i am doing something. leave slow downloads behind. it's good to be back. the 100% fiber optics network gives you the fastest internet available for all your devices.
