detroit with some snow. pittsburgh looking at rain showers changing to snow showers by midnight up in the steele city -- steel city. for us the front comes through early tomorrow morning. it loses some of its punch. rain and snow showers especially in the mountains but even in the metro we can't rule out that it will be cold enough to turn it over to a snow shower before the sunshine returns for the afternoon and a stiff wind out of the north, northwest. tomorrow is going to be significantly different than today. here's our forecast. today 58, seasonably cool. 39 tonight but only 44 tomorrow with the rain and snow shower in the morning. a blustery day. a little sun in the afternoon, 44. 20s to low 30s tuesday night with 46 on wednesday. still breezy but i think a breezier day tuesday and temperatures rise. thursday 54. friday 58. low 60s saturday and sunday. chance of shower and a high of 64. let's go to monika now, another look at timesaver traffic. >> thank you so much, howard. good morning, everybody. it's veterans day. that means i think it's going
