>> we have some clouds in our area. it is limited to the mid- atlantic region. otherwise, a fairly quiet around us. rain in florida from sandy, and then we have the storm to the northwest of us, the combination of snow in minnesota, nebraska, iowa, wisconsin. both parts of that will emerge over our area. that will make things confusing. outside, the clouds are holding the temperatures down. mostly in the mid 60's. the sun is beginning to break through the clouds. the cloud deck is pretty good over us. the sun is out in garrett county. the breaks in the clouds in the eastern shore, those of you who see some sunshine today are likely to make it to 72. where the clouds are the
thickest, that is holding the temperatures down. what is bringing in the moisture is this easterly breeze that is above us, coming off of a ridge of high pressure coming in from canada and new england. the larger picture, again, we have hurricane sandy, 105 miles per hour winds to our south, and then to the northwest, a cold front. high pressure is keeping them apart. eventually, the upper atmospheric activity supporting this storm to the west sweeps into the mountains and mid- atlantic region at the same time sandy is tracking north. so we have the combination by the end of the weekend that may not turn out to be such a great deal. you can see the contrast of how cool it is behind that front. barely above freezing in parts of wisconsin and minnesota. some of very cold air coming in
behind that which will further complicate the situation. a close picture of sandy now moving into the bahamas. 105 miles per hour winds. the expected traffic is expected to be north. 70 for a high today. we brought that down all of it because of all the clouds. those of you getting lots of sunshine, you may be getting past 70. definitely cooler than yesterday. that mix of sun and clouds will persist. taking a look at the long-range forecast, this is one computer model. we are ok for the next couple of days. by saturday, we start to see zandi come up from the south and then the storm coming in from the west. the cold air will eventually filter in. this goes until saturday evening, and then sunday
morning, we begin to see the snow in the great lakes, sandy getting closer, heavier rain bands coming in to the chesapeake bay. we have been watching a lot of these computer models. the dominance solution -- and there are more models out there than what we see here -- is this pink line from the del mar and area up to law island. that seems to be the consensus of were the models want to bring the storm. seven-day forecast. 70 tomorrow. by saturday night into sunday, monday, we have to allow for some chances of rain. by tuesday, temperatures come way down as the cold air finally gets in here. >> thank you. we are joined now by deborah norville. thank you for being with us. >> how are you today? >> great. great to talk to you as always.

two weeks before. the guy in there was dead and he survived for one week eating dogs and drinking water and managed to get out alive and his family rescued him -- eatingbugs and managed drinking water and managed to get out alive and his family rescued him. >> thank you for being with us. the state board of elections is try to determine why an important page went missing from some absentee ballots. the board confirmed more than a dozen absentee ballots from prince george's and montgomery county are missing the second page. that paid include a referendum questions 4 through 7, including questions on same-sex marriage, gambling, redistricting maps, and the dream act. if you are missing the second page of your ballot, call this
