exactly forty eight. so even when up a degree or so between ours looks like that'll be eight in a row were saying tomorrow we're going to guarantee wind chills between twenty six and thirty four during the afternoon right now at forty one feel in one spot to be slightly chilly but let's say on average dropping back into and through the thirties as we go through the evening hours and then way down into the thirties overnight just mentioned it's forty one here south side but it's forty five on the pencil forty three alleged that city and pretty similar forty two right now on the eastern shore. here's that little bit of cleverness sneaking through tonight with maybe a hand to sprinkle on radar but very doubtful doubt the ground temperatures falling back as we said through the thirties lower thirties and one mid thirties at the coast and when you factor in the wind it'll even be a little bit colder than that the ones knocking the howling but will be just enough to make it feel a little chilly or tomorrow in the morning during the afternoon we're going see lot of sunshine but that's not going to help temperatures much with the water coming air when
6:18 pm
water still or to see highs near the coastline in forties though when she get back inland and then tomorrow night even slightly colder as we're not going to have much wind at all and then look what happens as we get to the day on friday the wind becomes lighter and more variable in direction so we don't see a huge rise on friday just a little bit of a saturday that's when we get a little bit more wind gust you can see the same exact thing with a northerly winds becoming a little bit lighter going fairly light on friday and then here they go friday night. that's more important is saturday showing the winds pretty gusty out of the south now to bring his temp was right back up into the lower sixties there's a little hint of that sprinkler pointed out to the north thirty four then tonight little chilly air and land tomorrow thirty two to start forty one in mostly sunny by afternoon and clear and cold thirty five tomorrow evening and then a morning low of twenty nine thursday
