4:51 am
starts this afternoon. 43 degrees, but look at tomorrow, as we drop to the 30s overnight tonight, 54 degrees tomorrow afternoon. it looks like there's a chance for showers on thursday, after a dry valentine's day on wednesday. but a better chance of steadier rain comes in on friday. the weekend will be dry. it will be chillier, saturday up to 40 degrees. a little warmer on sunday. another round of rain coming in monday with lingering clouds tuesday and wednesday. there's a chance we'll see showers on these days. but look at those temperatures, 60s for next week, for tuesday, wednesday, and finally see sunshine on thursday. a bit cooler. but still warm for this time of year, a high of 53 degrees. >> thank you, bill. nine minutes before 5:00 a.m. on this tuesday. let's get a check of route 1 and the boulevard. >> jessica boyington has us covered with that. what are you seeing, jessica? >> just with the cameras, actually not sees much. good thing for this time of morning. right now, north and southbound
