down right warm by saturday. d then another cold front on sunday and we might be cooler than there on monday. it depends on the strength of the cold front. too far away to know exactly at this point. but here is tuesday morning. green kicks out of here. so midday and beyond the showers are gone. cloud cover kicks out for the afternoon. f the sunshine works in earlier, i think we'll be warmer than 71. if that cloud cover sticks around, we might have a hard time getting out of the 60 over to you. >> thanks, adam. our cooler weather has nothing on this. check out the scene in buffalo, new york. a car encased in ice. here is what happened. it was parked along lake erie overnight and the waves splashed up over the rails spraying the side of the car. as sub-freezing temps came in, the car became coated with several inches of ice. the other side of the car that hardly got splashed had hardy any ice on it. >> bring on the 80s.
