when you have the blanket of cloud cover you'll trap in the heat. keep it warm here at the surface, we don't have that now. temperatures have dropped about ten to even as many as 15 degrees, from this same time yesterday. in short, as it relate to the they are mom term, obviously colder morning for you, down to 8 degrees here at mount pocono, 23 at the airport, and 19 in atlantic city, but a very, very calm winds. so what you see, i like to say, what you get on the thermometer, it actually feels as it reads on the thermometer, and as we move forward in the eyewitness weather day planner, you are going to see couple of of clouds building with time, starting offer nice, bright, sunny, sun glare may become an issue for you as you head out the door this morning, once the sun comes up. but as the day progresses more and more cloud cover building in for us there is as we see the return flow around high pressure which is keeping us in the dry weather pattern, starts to move out to sea. we get that, again, southerly component to the winds flow. that that will help warm things up in the days ahead which we will will discuss as the show goes on.

straight at me essentially, and it seemed out every place and not normal. so i switched the video real quick, and shot the video clip, and the rest you can see. >> a teenage passenger remains in critical condition. the cause of the crash is under investigation. >> well, this is a rare site right here. a fire tornado captured on camera in missouri. firefighters there have their hands full battling a 50-acre grass fire spurred on by dry, hot conditions, and high wind. so far, there are no report of any injuries but as you can see right theirself role buildings were just completely ruined a fire tornado. he never even new it existed? >> like that vortex. >> here at home, so excited about a warm up this weekend, tomorrow specially, flight. >> yes, i think tomorrow will ends up probably being the nicest day of the weekends t looks to be the mildest, but also, it is the shot that for
us to stay completely dry. we'll see little did i turn ands cross through, not a wash out at all. >> absolutely not. if you have outdoor plans, i would so keep them here. but, there is at least that little hiccup that you have got to get over, exactly, yes. let me get out out there. i want to take you back in time, talk temperature difference. really have seen temperatures or we're going to, i should say, end up seeing the temperatures go on nice surge. tomorrow flirting with 60 degrees, our expectation saturday. so that will feel awfully nice to you, especially compared to recent days that have been so chilly specially last weekends when it was down right frigid. now, we flirt with 60. not shabby. little dose of late march for you there. storm scan3, meanwhile, at the moment, pretty quiet at home. we do have high pressure starting to just shift out to sea. and as a result of that, i don't know, you don't have to worry about this guy off across the north, that won't mess with us, but what happens with high pressure building out east is that you get the return flow around it. so that will help send moisture, also some cloud
cover, our way. but also, sends the warmth our way, too. we'll see the temperatures go on nice up little climb. rest of the united states say for little action nearby the canadian border pretty tame at this point. and because everybody else is getting on in the warmth, wait until you see the kind of warmth we're talking about here, we go through the day saturday, down into houston, already at 70 or flirting with it by 11:00 in the morning, tampa looking good at 70, we will be in the upper four's even before lunchtime saturday, tan does appear as though we easily break into the mid or even up ear's, as the day goes on. that warmth is also going to be in the recall down across the deep south as well. so it looks like real nights day. meanwhile, you have heard the rumors by now, that there is a possibility of an east coast storm. dow think there will be a storm. it is what happens here, because of it, and when you are this far out, you know how this can be, guys, you don't even have storm to track on land just yet. there are so many different scenarios this could take. how much, these are the two keeping close watch on, depending which model you
believe here, we look at the gfs and the european model, you have heard of those terms thrown around, bottom line is those are two of the more reliable ones we like to use, if it takes a westerly track, in other words, further inland, what we would likely end up is a warmer system that in turn would bring more likely more rain than anything. further east this thing decides to track, though, the more likelihood there will be for snow. and at this point, it is still too much of a question mark to guarantee anything. but i like to gave you a nice big heads up on these kinds of things, because specially if you have flight plans, any kind of travel going on tuesday into wednesday, this could really mess with you. so, it is something that i want you to just have that in the back of your head, stick with us, at this point, it does appear as though it would start with rain, perhaps, as some snow, and the forecast something that will absolutely be evolving and be fine tuned as the time gets closer. for now, here's where we stand, 23 degrees at the airport, very close to that up in trenton as well as wilmington, colder through the more outlying suburbs, only in the teens, but you don't have much after winds to contend with, always helpful.
meanwhile today we do expect to see temperatures rebounds to relatively seasonable conditions. low 40's for you. 34 degrees tonight, under more clouds, but no rain in site, right through saturday. meanwhile, we hit sunday, and that's when we do potentially see shower by night fall. by tuesday, and into wednesday, however, that next storm system is on the move. and of course it is something we've got our eye on down the road. erika, back to you. >> kate, thank you. we all know getting enough sleep is essential to staying healthy. now new study showing where some of the most sleep deprived people are living. people between 18 and 60 should be sleeping at least seven hours a night. less than that, and you can see an increase in your risk for obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, the list goes on. that will study coming out today the cdc ranked the most sleep deprived states. turns out residents in hawaii get the least amount of sleep. residents in south dakota minnesota, and colorado, you get the most sleep. maybe those cold winters have you snuggling up for more
sleep. pretty much a tie in our area, about 62% of residents in pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware, get a healthy amount of sleep. and by the way, little side note, study finds that married people tends to get the most amount of sleep while people who are divorced, widowed, or separated get the lease amount. part of the reason, researchers think, because spouse can help flag trouble areas like sleep apnea. there you have it. >> still ahead this morning on "eyewitness news", double 07 luxury carrousel for millions. why its new owner will not be allowed to drive it. first though here's what's ahead tonight on cbs-3.
