like much over the rocky mountain states. this will move eastward in the next couple of days. it will bring us a chance of rain as we go into the beginning of the week. ahead of it, we have a warm surge of air across the eastern seaboard. that's why we have the temperatures above average. the jet stream will continue to sit to our north through the weekend. expect warm air to encompass us right through the beginning of next week. temperatures tomorrow mostly in the 60s around the northeast. we'll be in the 70s to our south like in raleigh and atlanta. miami will be nice with a high of 81. behind the frontal system, you can see that temperatures are taking a drop in the northern plains states where they'll have readings in the 30s and 40s. we'll see cold air in our area. it's not going to happen for a week. we're going to say with above average temperatures as we go through the majority of next week. our futurecast shows we'll have mainly clear skies through the overnight into early tomorrow morning. and tomorrow afternoon, we'll see a batch of clouds work into
