east-southeast as we track a cold front cutting across the south. lots of rain and storms ahead of this cold front impacting areas like mississippi, alabama, tennessee, tornadodo threat as well. three tornado watch boxes for this area. this front all that weather is going to contie to head east. it will start to approach north florida, at least the panhandle tonight and tomorrow. it steers clear of us, though. we will be following the front as it gets closer, but for tomorrow it's far enough way, such that we stay in a southeast breeze and we just have warm conditions out there as a few clouds mixed with the sunshine. thursdsd night into friday, though, the leading edge of that cold front gets closer to us, so we will have to introduce a better chance for rainfall. especially it looks like as we're heading into early friday, but the balance of the day on thursday will probably be on the driri side with those warm conditions, but late afternoon, evening we'll have to watch for approaching showers, if not a gusty shower at best. bottom line for tomorrow, though,
car washed, sun and clouds, breezy, temperatures heading up to the lower 80s. thursday more lower 80s on the way. once we get the cold front in h he we will notice a temperature change, so friday morning mid60s, highs only getting in the lower 70s. there could still be some showers in the area too. on saturday a touch warmer in the upper 70s. we'll get that next warm up as the next col front approaches. round of rain comes through on sunday behind. behind that we cool down sunday night. looks like it's going to be cold and by monday morning, i don't know, maybe a coat with temperatures in the 40s. laurie. >> that is crazy. but we'll take it. thank you, betty. >> a wild find down in the keys this morning. can you guess what this is? >> it may just be an old torpedo that was found in marathon. it was found by t sheriff's office by a camp sighted site. they took it to the membebe of the navy who are going to analyze it
