temperatures in 20s, it was hard to get around. so 2 february 24th in a row, one year it was snow, the next year was tornados. wild weather let's head to indiana. now, they're dealing with a big mess. take a look at this h this does not look like indiana. this makes me think of maybe alaska where they have big blizzard conditions and everything is covered in snow. parts the midwest received more than a foot of snow over the past 36 to 48 hours. take a look at indiana last night. the storm came in with huge winds making conditions myselferable. looked like white-out conditions. everything seemed to be buried in site. dozens of crews were stuck inside. drivers say the winds knocked their cars around for hours. what do you do when you're totally buried i mean you have nowhere to go? nor than a thousand flights were canceled we'll take a look at that satellite scene and see what's going on. still a little bit of snow flying around the great lake states and up in our mountains
10:49 pm
these showers will come to an end but i was watching the cams in the mountains, snow everywhere. they were making snow too. so if you want to go enjoy some really good skiing this weekend, the mountains will be the place to be. it will be sunny and bright and rather chilly over the weekend but prime conditions to go skiing around here. locally we don't expect any kind of precipitation through the weekend and temperatures will be rather chilly. we expect to fall in the low 30s overnight. folks to the north, yeah, they'll be cold but nothing remarkably cold. 23 in pittsburgh. 26 in cincinnati. we expect freezing start of the day. by lunchtime in the mid-40s this model tends to be a little too cool for afternoon highs. we're going upper 40s. it's stopping at 45 for the high. and tomorrow night i think it's going a little too cool. about 24, we're going about 27. it really depends on cloud cover and if we clear out. we may in some locations dip to 24 but i think most of us will
10:50 pm
during the day on saturday i think we will be a little more warming than the model. you get the idea it will be chilly by the time we get to sunday, things do get warmer. let's check out that snow potential. some snow showers occurring tonight. it's generally about three inches. most of this is in the higher elevations, boone you might see a trace of snow. but otherwise, you can't stress enough how nice it will be if you're a big-time skier. for us down here, tomorrow we expect our high about 49. 51 on saturday. it will be a beautiful day. partly to mostly sunny. brighter and warmer on sunday. 63. monday and tuesday flirting with 70 degrees when we welcome wral -- or nbc to wral on monday it will be nice and warm and the next opportunity for rain on wednesday is wednesday and doesn't really look like it will be a lot of rain. >> that's a good time to get a car washed, i'm thinking. >> yeah. a couple days together, why not? >> sure.
