quiet passage. very little going on on satellite and radar, and on the map it's looking like it's cleared through the triangle area, and little passing sprinkle activity for parts of pennsylvania and even snow up toward vermont and new hampshire and, maine i have video in weather desk top to share from you what's going on in vermont. they say healthy snow over the weekend, and it's a cooler air mass behind the front, and that will settle to the south, and by morning we wake up to cooler air, more in to mid-40s, and this morning was upper 40s to low 50s. tomorrow the front will be to the south, and there's the cooler air. 48 pittsburgh, 51 charleston, or all it's a quiet trend. so overnight by daybreak we expect the upper 30s to maybe upper 40s in fayetteville. 44 here in the triangle, 43 rocky mount. the fitness forecast to start the day, loads of sunshine, and chilly start with 45. definitely have to wear
