911 calls. you can't draw up a better transition from winter to spring. >> i have been saying it all day. one of the best 7-day forecasts in a long time. it's rare when you have snow and 70s in your 7-day forecast. that's what we have. the sun is back tomorrow afternoon. still cool. and then as we go into next week, that's the huge warm-up. 70s. >> all right. so something for everyone to enjoy. on that note, we will be here today and tomorrow. hope you will join us again tomorrow morning. can't thank you enough for starting your saturday right here on wake up washington. >>
