6:20 pm
like the 40s. it felt more like the 30s and and 20s because we still had pretty good wind chill. we're down to 34 at gaithersburg d winchester and when wee continue to watch these wind gusts which still in some areas are up and over 20 miles an hour they're getting better but it does contribute to a wind chill that has most of us feeling like we're in the 20s to aroundd 32-degrees of the dress for the wind chill although it will certainly be getting better towards morning. m ear night we drop to about 30-degrees. there will be some spots though, in thee upper 20s which is why on these cold nights wee do want to remind you that the refreeze is still doable and we we did add a little bit of moisture and a little bit of melting. 32 sunny and cold, it's on the chilly side.e. we get up to about p 48-degrees and by 5:00, 48. there are a couple of things we're much whatting for next nex week. one of them is sunday night. we've been watch for quite a while this actual area of low
6:21 pm
pressure, a coastal that appeared to be too far out to see. i have to tell you that this storm track has shifted. it's a little l closer.lose itself it's going to maybe brush bru the coast the way things are looking right now and maybe clip new york city.ne that's sunday night.y n we're going to watch that very closely because the trend hastren been for it to get a little bit closer, one that has maybe a bit a more interest and impact on our area is this clipper that wouldt be approaching on monday evening. it will promote a mix of rain orf ra snow around here, maybe a little bit of sleet.bit but a lot of times it appears as as they want to get off the coast and really develop again. a we hate these situations becauses half the time they don't develop and the other half the time they do and the models are split on this than would. that's a question for us on how much snow we might get tuesday morning. if this develops and it's nice nic and strong, tot south we can can get more snow, if it's to the north we may not get as much snow. our american models say it's
6:22 pm
going too far north. maybe we'll get an inch monday into tuesday. good ole euro model sees it more aggressive and has it more to mor the south and has us into the three to six inch. that's our dilemma. d we're going to have to make thiss call probably sometime on monday, but first call probably pro sunday night. we're thinking again monday m night into tuesday has to be watched. next week definitely on the chilly side. you can senie we've got a lot of 30s as we look toward next week w and we're going to head toward valentine's' day on the chilly side. we're going to keep an eye on o what we think is going to be a potentially busy monday night and tuesday.d t unless it ends up being the bei american model and then it will be a little bit of snow. > we always like the american model. i knew you would go there.here > we enjoy all models. >> just not on paper. > in case you guys didn't know it is national wear read for for
