6:17 pm
kinds of tricks. >> all kinds of stuff out there for this weekend. i think what we are certain of really is just how cold those temperatures are going to bottom out. you could be setting some records by the time you get to sunday morning. record sunday morning 28. we are going to be close, gang, real close. right now outside, there's your picture. take a look. its quite cloudy. but you do have some breaks in the cloud. high temperature 50 not indicative of what this day was like that. 50 was at midnight. okay? throughout your day today in the afternoon you were in the 40s and that wind made it feel like the upper 30s. 58 would be your normal. so you're off the mark. a little bit of everything. there's going to be some rain for your saturday in spots out there. there's going to be some sun, okay, in spots out there especially the sun -- if i was
6:18 pm
go to my northern suburbs of new york city. snow is also part of this forecast especially south and west of the city. i think the bigger concern in this whole hodgepodge will be some slippery driving spots out there on sunday morning. we'll make some sense of all of that. here's how the futurecast picks up on everything. you get to your morning tomorrow morning 9:30. you see snow falling south and west of the city. here we go. then it never makes a big push to the north because this clear air is a high pressure system that's exerting pressure on it but you could see some moisture making its way into the city, as well. maybe a little further north in some of the higher elevated spots and then you get to the evening hours and sort of pushes out of here sunday. the sunshine is back in force. but how much snow were we talking about? if you are looking at just snow numbers, i think it's pretty fair to say a trace to two inches. really so what's that 0 to 2 for anybody in our area? more likely to find that 2- plus in some of the spots west
6:19 pm
here's my concern for sunday morning. snow won't stick to the roads. it's not cold enough. it will melt. everything is wet and rainy. then all those temperatures just bottom out inside into sunday morning. freeze watches in effect and i think you could have problems with slick spots early sunday morning. right now couple of little snowflakes north of sullivan county. the cold air is setting up. future rainfall here bigger numbers with rain south of the city maybe an inch for places like toms river. across the board 41 degrees for your saturday. not a pleasant day but again if you are chasing sun go north of the city. 46 on sunday. that's sunday morning low of 29, it's going to be close. the record is 28. keep your eye on thermometer. 58 monday. 57 tuesday. 55 wednesday. those numbers look okay there but it's the week after next week that we'll turn the corner. david friend was just in our office our boss. when are we turning the corner? not this coming week. the following week.
6:20 pm
>> i love you, mo, man. i love you. [ laughter ] >> weatherman can't promise. >> just checking. >> a lot of promises. thank you. let's take you back out to queens right now. otis live at a happy but empty citi field. hey, otis. >> reporter: it certainly is, maurice. there was plenty of excitement here at citi field. things calm in florida. i'll explain for jacob degrom and he was solid. always durable and reliable,

former jet. these little guys? they represent blood cells. and if you have afib - an irregular heartbeat that may put you at five times greater risk of stroke - they can pool together in the heart, forming a clot that can break free, and travel upstream to the brain
6:22 pm
but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects with pradaxa can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning.
