6:22 pm
thirty-four for the district. definitely chilly but not as bitter cold as today was. beyond tomorrow night, there's something we have to watch and that is two pieces ofeny that you see right here are going to come together and start to form a much bigger storm near the bahamas. that storm comes up the coast tomorrow night and it looks like it's going to be quite a wallop, a winter hurricane we're going to call it for new england and up toward canada. this is the area of low pressure and we're going to see this developing and coming up the coast tomorrow night. it could produce some light snow here. right now no advisories because it appears as though the storm is too far out to see to give d.c. area too much snow. at the beaches, several inches could be possible. then you add the wind in and you have blizzard conditions from boston all the way through the canadian province. new york may get several inches out of it as well . the concern would be thursday morning for our frens watching down at the beaches. look at widespread advisories.
6:23 pm
advisories or winter storm warnings and up in our area we have some winter storm much what s. if this gets changed to a warning then this four to six inches might happen. this is potential for this. that would lewis and. might include some sides on the side of the bay. maryland we're going to have to watch this for you as well. the track would be very important. again, light snow maybe here in the 95 corridor, but most of the potential foray cumulation is east of 95 and closer to the other side of the bay. so we may see some light snow here and it with being so cold we do know that sometimes that a little bit of snow can be a hazard. right now we think light snow is possible, but then probably the bigger story beyond the snow is the extreme cold that it pulse in friday and saturday, very bitter wind chills. in can pennsylvania, look at some of the single digits at night. we're just going to describe friday as extreme cold with a temperature of
6:24 pm
chills well blow zero as those winds kick up again. it's very cold on saturday. we start to climb out of it a little bit on sunday and then kind of a site for sore eyes next monday and tuesday. temperatures in the mid 40s. if we see a pattern change it's going to wait until next week. there are only a few signs of that right now. a little hope. we always have hope. spring will come at some point. and we will complain about the heat. coming up next, hitting the gym. one of the motion common new year's resolution. we'll find out one christmas class wants you to get in shape while in the buff. i like these award-winning cheddar puffs.
