‘I get it’: Trump says he’s ‘learned a lot’ about coronavirus

Hours earlier, Trump’s medical team reported that his blood oxygen level dropped suddenly twice in recent days and that they gave him a steroid treatment typically only recommended for the very sick. The doctors also said his health is improving and that he could be discharged as early as Monday.

Weather forecast: Slow clearing, cool today

You’ll be greeted by a cool Monday with skies on the cloudy side early on in the day. Some breaks of sun will develop in the afternoon. Temperatures will top out in the upper 50s.  

High pressure at the surface from Texas through the Mid Atlantic will help clear skies out into Tuesday and also help send some warmer air to the region. Tuesday looks to be the warmest day we’ll have since October started with highs back in the upper 60s. This is ahead of an approaching cold front Tuesday night and Wednesday that will pack a punch.

Expect busy southwest winds Tuesday afternoon to turn quickly northwest along the passage of a cold front sometime Tuesday night and Wednesday. This will also bring rain showers that remain off and on Wednesday. It will be windy as well as the storm passes to our north. Expect gusts 30+ mph at times through the evening. Once this storm system exits, we will be left with a large and cold airmass Thursday that will force Canadian air over a warm Lake Ontario. That means lake-effect rain showers Thursday with continued breezy conditions and high temperatures swinging back below normal, into the middle 50s.

More tranquil weather does look to take over from there. Friday should see clearing skies and mark a warming trend into next weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday have a good shot at breaking 70°.
