7:04 am
the east coast for like sunday or so. basically you got to get the winter coats out and keep them out. the reason why we are near westport, we're on the connecticut shoreline. a cold front that came through the east coast, you could actually see it. it's that distinct line of cloud cover that's off shore now. and behind it in comes the northwest wind and in comes the temperatures that are going to be -- they're going to be dropping. you know, really the newsworthy thing to take from all this, a lot of folks will be having temperatures go below freezing a little ahead of schedule this year. where i am right now in westport, you're about where you should be. they've already had their subfreezing temperature. up and down the sea business board, look at the numbers. new york city goes to 30 or below by the 13th. that will take place today. baltimore, typically november 19th. atlanta, typically november 13th. birmingham, alabama, typically november 9th. those will all take place i believe at some point today. looking at your day tomorrow, as we look ahead.
