there will be some fog or drizzle forming, mainly overnight, early morning issue for tonight, into tomorrow, and then we see that front just sweep through, the breeze kicks in, sun comes back, still technically in the 60s, but you really see that delayed sort of reaction take effect here with the temperature readings, by thursday. that's when we will have hard time even getting you out of the 40's here, but at least we stay dry. now, upper level disturbance that by thursday night into friday could be messing with us just a little bit here, at absolute worse, looks like would bring us shower of rain or snow, but i don't think we would have to worry phone it were to happen about any kind of accumulation, so, that's that. and it is still little bit after question mark, even at this point. so, today's the day to enjoy. tomorrow the transition takes place, then just drop it off from there. forty's expected, thursday, friday, saturday, sunday, monday, and probably even beyond that point. prolonged blast of cold, tan will stick around for awhile. jess, over to you. >> thank you, katie. and relatively quiet morning so far. all the majors seem to be
