pd.c., new york city, it will be pa blizzard with heavy snow. prain and strong storms for us. pwe are at a slight risk for psevere weather. ponce we get in the afternoon, pthe storms will have blown pthrough and then that rain is pover. pfor now through lunchtime, we do phave a chance of a very strong pstorm. pwe get a couple of lines of rain pto move through here. pour temperatures right now, big ptime. plook at the bottom left-hand pcorner of the screen. pit's 63 degrees outside. pwe may briefly get to the upper p60s today. pthe rest of the weekend, we'll pnot get out of the 50s and come psunday morning, it will be 30s pon the map. pwindy and cool, but the blizzard pwarnings now, d.c. all the way pthrough new york city. pi expect them to completely pclose the airports so if you're pnot getting an early morning pflight out of the area, you're robably not getting up there. pagain, they're just shutting
pthe way and letting the weather pdo what it's got to do and then pwork it from there. pi have a lot of radar to show pyou this morning. pa lot of this activity as it papproaches the coast starts to pfall apart a little bit. pcooler shelf waters but still, pthere's enough in the atmosphere pdynamicswise pdynamicswise, we'll get one or ptwo storms. phere's round number one and pround number two in the radar prange. pone or two of these could rovide some gusty winds for us. pthat's why we're under the pslight risk. pif you're walking out the door pnow, just light to occasionally pmoderate rain in citrus county, phernando county, parts of phillsborough as the wave of rain pstarts to work its way onshore. pyou'll want to forget about phighlands county. pthese showers popped up over the ast few minutes. preally, i would expect 6:17, pfrom now through early pafternoon, we're going to have pto deal with showers and pthunderstorms but irpg the pstrongest of the activity is
pthis is sort of your prelude, pyour main line of thunderstorms pthat will move through in a few phours. pafter that clears the area, then pwe're okay. pit's just waiting on the wind pand the cooler weather. pup to the north, we've had some pbig thunderstorms this morning. pwe're running from the ptallahassee area. plook at that rain. pgoes up 75 into the atlanta area pwhere, after you go past patlanta, it turns to ice and to psnow and then go winter storm parea. pthis is big for them because pthey've got the nfc championship pgame on sunday and they're ptalking about a quarter to half pinch of ice. pthat's enough to just shut a pcity down. pwinter storm warnings for praleigh and then up here, hasn't peven started snowing yet in the pd.c. area, but that's where pthey're anticipating one to two pfeet of snow. pmountain areas of west virginia, pthat's where you may pick up two pto three feet of snow.
pin the afternoon, we'll shift peverything further offshore and pthe reason that they're putting pa blizzard warning into effect pis not just because of the snow. pthey're talking about coastal pwinds in the neighborhood of 40 pto 50 miles per hour in parts of pnew jersey, delaware, all the pway down through southeastern pvirginia so this will be a retty intense storm and it's pjust in its infancy now so it's pjust developing. pfor us, showers and storms, peverything pushes through by pearly afternoon and then the pwind starts to take over. pit will be very windy tonight pdragging in colder air. pi know 51 is not bad, but it's pnot going to get much warmer pthan that tomorrow. pthe sun is going to try to do pits best but the wind and the pcolder air taking over. p55 for a high tomorrow pafternoon. pforget about it. pdon't even put it in your mind. pcheck back in this weekend, pmaybe sunday afternoon.

pwell out into the gulf. pwe had this prelude of this line pdevelop the past couple of hours pand start to march toward the pcoastline and really, it's been pmostly light to occasionally pmoderate rain as this activity pworks its way onshore. pso it's 6:42 in the morning and pi do expect until this line pcomes through in a few hours pthat we're going to have these pon and off, wet conditions and pbehind that line is when the pwind really starts to pick up pand really take off. pit's going to be a pretty windy pafternoon and we'll follow that pwith pretty much a windy weekend poverall. phere's the light rain, inverness psouthward down to brooksville, pright along 75 in sumter county, pall the way to pasco county. pevery once in a while, you get a plittle moderate downpour but pthis isn't the main area of prain. pthat's still out over the gulf pand a few sprinkles in highlands pcounty and this shower has just opped up and starting to move ponshore, very close to sarasota. pyou're likely to get a quick pdownpour in sarasota at this phour.
