5:16 pm
the radar so does that mean showers for us in a few areas but what kind of showers rain showers snow showers sleet showers probably all of the above but in very isolated spots in very minute quantities for the most part as you can see that's changed is the last minute since i looked at it and see a lot of sunlight hitting the buildings there were looking off to the e sun setting for the west so the west facing a side of the buildings now picking up the bright sunshine you can see some of the shadows out there as well lot of low clouds in the distance that's because we have the scattered areas of light precipitation as i mentioned the case are just joining us we had a few reports of some sleep. evan reported one around the coasts in the bed to sleep shower earlier. here's one now moving up through parts of the northern neck off the middle peninsula most of what we're looking at a north carolina is probably just a few isolated rain showers but as we go to
5:17 pm
even though there are forty five. it's freezing couple of few thousand feet up and so the rain is falling freezing and then as it falls in most areas of having time to melt and turn back into some light rain showers but in a few areas is paul's a little bit heavier again even though it's way above freezing we're talking about a little bit of us sleep. so forty three is the spawn forecast for tomorrow that's going to be our guarantee for today we called for forty five we hit forty eight so fourteen days in a row. hunters out there right now south side look just like this generally a mid forties a few lower forties is hard to get more thirties though when you get up on the parts of the aca mac in northampton county areas back to the middle peninsula northern neck a lot more the upper thirties and just like southside were looking at mainly lower to mid forties here cross here is a north carolina and that is down at least for the inland areas compared to
5:18 pm
unchanged or maybe up a couple of degrees here in the immediate area so is the stuff rolls through this evening. again very isolated showers just like on sunday just like yesterday a couple spots could have a few areas of sleet mixed and better chance for any snow mixing in would be in the morning far areas a little bit more to the north where you might even see a snow shower slight chance you could have a little bit of minor accumulation but it's doubtful. hopefully with the temperature being above freezing we would have an issue on the roads or anything but we'll keep you updated in the morning with our am show daybreak if there's anything that's out there and then live the temperatures during the day a thursday. they only go from the twenties and the start of the day the thirties for the afternoon highs will be some of the coldest air we've seen this winter season so that snow storm around washington pulling out a little bit of a sort of semi related upper level disturbance that one swinging
5:19 pm
few stray showers maybe a little bit of a mix especially to the north lows by morning down around freezing tomorrow talking about forty four partly sunny breezy and chilly rest of the forecasts boy doesn't get any warmer and then tomorrow thirty five thursday thirty seven friday thirty six sunday and twenty nine on sunday will be the coldest air in the long time lows in the teens and then a storm comes as some warmer air arrives monday tuesday but will it be warm enough in time to mean that it's rain not snow or will a miss altogether right now we think there's a decent shot could give us a little bit of inclement weather to parts of the area to watch that and i have is that thousands of children in the us every year were talking about injuries from shopping carts how you can make sure it doesn't happen to your kids and a man went on a rampage inside a store swinging us stolen sore police say this guy did just
