5:15 pm
in cuba for two days he'll also visit argentina. some rather cool temperatures out there today a little bit below normal adult on five in some spots ten degrees most of us five six seven. you can see a lot of clear skies with a lot of sunshine today and really a lot more in the forecast as well. i think they'll be some high thin clouds for the next couple of days giving us at times sort of filtered sunshine or a dim sunshine but overall it's sunshine that is the main word in my forecast and eventually warmer temperatures not warm out there now although not horrible thirty nine degrees currently. but that northerly wind and thirteen is making it feel more like the lower thirties and the pressure is holding steady at thirty point forty six pollen forecast for tomorrow says forty six degrees for today had i just chose and the temperature i would have been right but instead i said when chills of twenty six the thirty for most of the in the morning they were most of the afternoon there around thirty secs and then later
5:16 pm
that range so since that one two o'clock we were quite in that range missed that by two degrees. we're going to say we were wrong so we'll start the forecast hopefully the streak over at one during the day tomorrow. meanwhile tempers out there there are few forties that would just change from thirty nine to forty i think it's adequate to my eye and you can see some thirties closer to the coast laugh because the water's still chilly when the wind comes in off the water. it knocked down those temperatures near the shorelines verses back in line for example forty eight right now in williamsburg look at the thirties across the eastern shore and then there's a couple of thirty there are couple thirties but for the most part you see slightly milder conditions again back in one that goes for north carolina words upper forties versus coastal section some mid forties that eventually led to low forties right near the water's edge taste of spring cannot though this weekend. now it's not going to feel like april or may but it will feel at least like march as we're going to
5:17 pm
degrees above normal in a few locations not for us i think will be ten to fifteen above but as you can see right now it is chilly going to drop back down into and through the thirties and again it will also feel a little bit colder than that because the wind. let's say maybe twenty five to thirty at this point but later tonight the winds do begin to ease notice how the wind streams are coming in much more off slowly. that means lighter winds and has a result of that temperatures will get down in what areas in the twenties but by nine o'clock we're already back in one of us into the twenties by nine o'clock we're already back up into the thirties and then topping out tomorrow afternoon a little bit warmer than today not much notice the very light wind flow at that time but by tomorrow night it starts to come and more at the south again lately and as a result we don't get as cold tomorrow night as tonight and that means starting off your
5:18 pm
the upper thirties then some spots even lower or mid forties and that leads to very nice afternoon sort of that damn sunshine at times but temperatures about ten degrees above where we should be this time of year. here's the system sitting well offshore and as you can see where enjoying the nice clear skies all up and down the eastern seaboard tight and twenty seven with thirty or so at the coastline but lower to mid twenties for the inland areas and the rest the forecast is going to look like this tomorrow. a little bit milder than today but still about five below normal dim sun shined him sunshine saturday sixty i mentioned earlier i lowered saturday two degrees but i race sunday three degrees from yesterday so i'll get all the same warm will get your messages press it slightly differently. not that my stuff and i thank you adam added tax a would be robber the whole thing caught on camera why the hero of
