11:21 pm
bump up again by the latter half. it will be light. check out the end of next week. come friday and saturday, that's that stronger front i'm talking about, that's the one that's going to bring us at least based on the current thinking, some much colder weather that friday night and saturday. in other words not this weekend but next weekend. so we've got one more day of this right bacin mid-80s across the entire viewing area you're in citrus, orlando, everybody will be in the low to mid-80s and that long range pattern we stay warm for a while, but like i said towards the end of next week we start to cool off. there's big storm could create some major snow from the great lakes to new england sometime that following weekend. closer to home for the boaters,
