5:18 am
does pull away, high pressure eventually will rebuild in here, and we ends one pretty decent, especially wednesday, but, even through the day tomorrow, yes, still be bit after breeze, but easing up on us. then this guy comes along, what at least promises to be pretty schedule storm system if you plan to travel maybe out toward chicago o'hare, go visit family for the holiday, but fizzling by the time it reaches us. while we might see evening shower wednesday, overall good travel day. thursday, probably a few spotty showers, but that's really it. and "black friday" right now meisha looking good if you want to go shopping. >> i'll be there, katie, i don't miss "black friday", i'll tell you that much right now. i'm deal steeler. i tell you. i go out there all day. guys, looking outside right now, so katie thanks so much for bringing up the flights, we will be talking about the airport, keeping an eye on the airports because of how the kinds i conditions are, speaking of, authorities see this camera kind of blowing around. what we've been seeing in effect of this, had couple every downed trees this morning, one of which was really starting to slow us down, now cleared out of the
