4:50 am
more clouds and chance of showers late but temperatures will be in the 70s. so as for us to the, we have got mostly clear skies and fog could develop again, temperatures falling back once again in the 40s. but another beautiful day headed our way. high pressure in control for tomorrow. that means lots of sunshine and temperatures climbing into the 70s. i mentioned the cooler weather headed our way this weekend. sure enough that follows a cold front that you will notice brings a risk of a few showers late in the day on saturday and overnight. to let me show you how this is going to play out. but there is that cold front out to the west. i also want to point out to our south, we are tracking matthew that it looks to be riding up along the florida coast as well as the southeastern areas of georgia and south carolina. this is tomorrow afternoon. as it pushes up the coast, this cold front which will be approaching our region will help to push matthew out to sea, but notice by tuesday afternoon, we have more clouds and the risk of those showers moving on in as this front clears by early sunday.
4:51 am
that is what a lot of the forecast models are actually showing. matthew now in the bahamas currently expected to near the coast later on tonight of florida. all the models in agreement, but then as we get into friday evening, notice what happens. we take that sharp curve thanks to that cold front, and really what happens by next week may even spin around and head back toward the bahamas as a much weaker storm or out to sea. still a lot of uncertainty with that later forecast about a week away miles per hour, 115, a category 3 storm right now pounding the bahamas. we have hurricane warnings up for the eastern coast of florida as well as the bahamas. and we are likely going to see a very close approach if not a landfall as a category 4 storm. that what the forecast of the national hurricane center by later on this evening. noticing tonight at 8:00, category 4 storm to really just brush along the coast, and there is still some wiggle room. it may make landfall late
4:52 am
as it rides up along the coast, just really creating some havoc with just strong winds, as well as heavy rain and likely some storm surge. it is expected to then shift to the north and east by late friday into this weekend. weakening as a storm and then eventually a thunderstorm by early monday as it heads back well away from our area. but those thunderstorm-force winds expected to move into the florida area by to the. that is that area in red right there. so we will really watch out forh because we are going to see some really dangerous conditions develop quickly. as for us, it is quiet and dry. temperatures in the 70s. this weekend, that chance of showers on saturday and look as though high pressure builds on in and looks pretty quiet yet for columbus day. over to you, guys. >> julie: all right, sarah. terrifying moments caught on camera. how employees helped stop a man from swinging a knife at their employees.
