6:09 am
>> zack: welcome back. cloud cover to start the day but the showers are quickly approaching. they will not be fully wide spread but we will call them scattered as we make our way into the afternoon hours today. i want you to notice they are coming from just about due west, and yes, they will be impacting the extreme western counties first, and for those down in the upstate, but then i do think some areas of the mountains are going to be seeing the scattered showers, even east of i-26. but, there is going to be a shift in the wind and that's going to bring in a bigger moisture content as we make or way into the work week. but, as we make our way into the second half of the weekend, not too much of an impact. 40 degrees in asheville, slightly cooler than what we saw yesterday morning, but our afternoon highs are going to be warmer than what we saw yesterday. we are back into the low and mid 60s for those in the mountains. maybe even closer to the 70 degrees mark as we head furthererouth. but, a big implication if you are heading out to any destination this morning is the visibility issue. fog will be seen, reducing the visibility down to maybe even less than a quarter mile at
6:10 am
so just be safe safe on the roadways. bigger picture, we have a cold front splitting the country in half. the cooler air mass behind it. it is going to be sliding towards our region. so our temperatures are going to be around our average for this time of year come monday, tuesday, and wednesday. the warmer weather is going to be coming to an end. as i mentioned, there is an area of low pressure that's going to be moving in from the west. that's actually wrapping in the moisture from the south, and that's when we will start to see the bigger impacts. we will put you in the hour-by-hour forecast now. overcast conditions through the morning hours, spotty showers are going to be seen. and you start to see that westerly flow going through. afternoon. but notice what happens as we head overnight bringing us into tomorrow morning. a little bit of clearing, so i'm expecting another patchy fog-type morning but then we see due south. that is going to be impacting the upstate first and then we see it in the mountains. however it is going to be packing a punch as we go from monday through wednesday with even accumulation upwards of about 2-3." not going to be the case over
6:11 am
i think the accumulation less than a tenth of an inch in many mountain locatioios. by tomorrow, maybe a quarter inch in some localized spots but really tuesday and wednesday will be the hardest hitting days. and then by thursday, we will drop off our temperatures and we could see a wintry mix in the early morning hours, and then we're going to start clearing out this system. 63 degrees is what we are forecasting later this afternoon. unbelievable for this time of year. take look at the upstate. greenwood, 69 degrees. we are just shy of that in gaffney, greer going to be forecasted 67. overall a warm day. but i do think we will pay the price. take a look at this. mind and tuesday, rain showers, but wednesday we may mix in thunderstorms. we will be back in the 50s at that point and clearing the skies out. but thursday morning we could see just a bit of that snowflake because we are dropping the temperaturing below the freezing point in the overnight hours. >> evan: so the possibility of snow later this week? >> zack: we're just talking flurries, i'm notot thinking in terms of an impact. >> evan: no accumulation?
6:12 am

>> evan: you can comparison shop for almost everything except for some of the most services you will need, health care. what if you tryd? "full measure" did and found interesting results. news 1's jay siltzer talked to host sharyl attkisson about this week's cover story. >> jay: cheryl, how did you go about shopping for procedures? >> reporter: we partnered up with a consumer group and we chose 6 states and called dozens of hospitals and simply asked how much does it cost to get the same procedure, a basic mri knee for adults. and this is more important because under obama-care, doubles are up and out of pocket expenses are up and people are forgoing medical care because it's so expensive so it's important to shop around to get a better deal for the procedure. >> jay: what kind of price variations did you find?
6:16 am
incredible. you can get a knee mri for $400 in some places, but manan many thousands more, sometimes in essense right across the street. and the consumer groupup looked at these variations and couldn't tie them to any specific reason. it's not because of rent, location, real estate, or quality. these are just sort of random prices devised by each hospital individually, showing that it does pay to shop around if you can pay thousands of dollars less for the exact same thing. >> jay: fascinating. and you have a report on a young woman in france who is a rising political rock star? >> reporter: yes. this is a woman that i guess you can kind of say is the equivalent of donald trump in some ways in france, although she's in her 20s and has quite a following. she is tackling immigration, migration and terrorism head on. very interesting figure, scott thuman is interviewing her and we will have that story as well. >> jay: and ingrebl reports on
6:17 am
share examples, if you will? >> reporter: all kinds of new examples, including the state department paying for packaged air. your tax dollars going for supercharged moon shine. solar powered beer. we have all kinds of examples. >> jay: we always heard they would try to charge few for air, and there you have it. thanks for joinings us, sharyl, "full measure" airs this morning at 10:30 on news 13. >> evan: a home grown push to help farmers with the business side. coming up, where hundreds went to cultivate partnerships

6:20 am
so, if you are heading out on the roadways to any sunday morning destination, make sure you give yourself maybe just a little more time, and distance between you and other vehicles as you are heading out the door. 53 degrees right now in greenville. absolutely incredible for this time of year. we will be rising closer to the 60s, if not near 70 degrees as we make our way further south later on this afternoon. so, here it is. 63 degrees is what we we are forecasting in asheville, 12 degrees above average for this time of year. nearly everyone in western north carolina is going to be into the upper 50s and low 60s. you don't see the mid 50s until you make your way further north towards newland, forecasted at 56 degrees. greer at 67. we are met there for many locations in the upstate. but, we will start to take a hit in terms of our our afternoon highs with rain showers monday thru wednesday. >> evan: 6:21. we are in the "carolina kitchen" with adam wilson and rodrigo maura from the square root
6:21 am
this morning? we have sweet smelling stuff on the stove. >> we will sample this fabulous brunch special. we will do today back at the restaurant. it's a cinnamon roll french toast. >> evan: that sounds amazing. >> there is two ways of doing this. we took the long way of actually making dough for the french toast. you're making a sweet dough, rolling it out. brushing it with butter and cinnamon and 14u gar, rolling it up, proofing it and slicing it. or you can go to the store and buy it in the cans. >> evan: what does proofing it mean? >> we make the dough and we oil a bowl and actually let the dough rise. once the dough rises we knead it back down, roll it out and fill it. >> evan: okay. >> what we have is the dough we finished. butter the dish and we are going to score the dough. so we take our knife and we will make lines in it, to give room for our egg custard that will go
6:22 am
>> so we have six whole eggs here. >> evan: yolk and all? >> yolk and all. heavy cream, this is what you use to make french toast. cinnamon. >> evan: obviously all the recipes will be on the web site if you want to make one of these at home. >> and fresh nutmeg. >> evan: you know, all the chefless i know and respect use fresh nutmeg, never out of the little cans. >> no, it's beautiful arrowmatics. >> evan: oh, yeah. together. >> evan: amazing. >> now we will pour our egg dough. >> evan: this is a really healthy dish, adam, from what you are saying? >> depend on how much you eat.

now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. >> zack: welcome back, folks. we saw overcast skies for the first half of the weekend, much more of the same for the morning and we are starting to see some of the rain trying to make their way in towards the mountains but they are coming from due west. that will be the track throughout the course of the day, but as we head into monday, tuesday, and wednesday, we are going to have a bit of a different system and i think that one is going to be packing a little bit more of a punch. but, we will see warmer temperatures this afternoon. we are back into the low and mid 60s across our region. unbelievably warm for this time of year. 40 degrees right now in asheville, which is slightly cooler than what we saw 24 hours ago.
6:40 am
in burnsville and that's even warmer than what we are seeing down in the upstate. but, there is some reduced visibility at times. due to patchy fog, reducing it to a less than a quarter mile. if you head out to a sunday morning destination give yourself time and try to stay further from other vehicles on the roadway to ensure some safety. so, there is a cold front that's separating the united states with a cooler air mass on the back side of it, ahead of that we are still keeping the warmer air locked in. that's what we will see later this afternoon. but the first system is going to bring in a few scattered showers as we make our way into sunday afternoon. but, then there's a system that's actually out in central texas that will dive east and then we will start to see the increasing moisture actually coming up on the gulf of mexico from the south and southwest. let's put this into motion for you now. overcast conditions throughout the course of the day today, heading into about lunchtime. we will start to see some of those scattered showers rolling through our region as we head into the afternoon hours, they become a little more wide spread
6:41 am
think the impact and accumulation is going to be minimal. watch what happens overnight bringing us into tomorrow. we start to clear things out, a potential for another foggy morning and we start to see the moisture moving in due south and then it's going to engulf our region. that's going to be the case monday, tuesday, as well as wednesday. as i mentioned, little in terms of accumulation. i think less than a tenth of an inch, but by tomorrow we will ramp those chances up and then by tuesday and wednesday, that's when the hardest hitting stuff is going to be seen and at that point our temperatures are sliding back closer to the average for this time of year. it won't be the case today, 63 degrees in asheville, we are there at hendersonville, closer to the 70 degrees mark for those down in the upstate. here is your seven-day forecast. you see monday thru wednesday, that's that 72 hour period, but the brubt of the storm is going to be, by thursday morning we will start to clear things out. but we could even get a wintry mix on the. by friday back down to the low 40s with sunshine.
