A scattered rain and storm chance for this afternoon and surprisingly our severe weather chances peak after 7:00 p.m. tonight.

Strong straight line wind is the main concern.

Highs should return to the 70’s today after we hit 68 degrees yesterday for the high.

I have Pittsburgh hitting 77 today for the high.

Out the door temperatures should be in the mid-to-low 60’s.

Noon temperatures will be near 70 degrees.

Skies will be cloudy through the day with winds out of the southwest at 7 to 15mph this afternoon.

Yesterday’s rain was caused by a mid-level low that slid through the area.

It is now centered over New York and moving out to sea.

A second surface low will push through our area today bringing the chance for rain and storms.

Interestingly enough, the system will push through during the overnight hours.

This will limit storm development due to the lack of afternoon warmth that could have led to added instability.

That being said, dew points are high and temperatures will be in the 70’s as the low moves by. Storms will be possible.

Enjoy the warmth while you can.

Temperatures will tumble tomorrow with the rest of the week seeing highs near 60 degrees.

Morning lows on some mornings are also expected to dip into the 30’s.

Billy Crystal says the Oscars needs a host after 2021 awards hit record-low ratings

Billy Crystal questioned the wisdom behind the Oscars not employing a host in recent years. 

The "When Harry Met Sally" actor, 73, was first tapped to host the biggest awards show for movies in 1990. Since then, he’s been asked back again in 1992, 1993, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2004 and 2012. So, as a resident expert in the show and hosting duties, Crystal spoke with People to explain why he believes the Academy Awards have suffered as an entertaining broadcast since not the decision to stop having one. 

"To me, a show needs a host, you need a center," he told the outlet. "Let's face it, after the first 40 minutes, four out of five people have lost. By the end of the night, the winners are all backstage and you're dealing with disgruntled people who are disappointed. You want to make them feel good and the home audience to stay with the show."

The last media personality to host the Academy Awards was Jimmy Kimmel in 2018.

Indeed the 2021 show, which saw "Nomadland" take the coveted best picture Oscar, opted to have various celebrities who attended the show take on introducing categories and other tasks that would otherwise have been done by a singular host. The result was that the Oscars hit a record low in ratings. 


According to Variety, citing early Nielsen numbers, an average of 9.85 million viewers watched the show, which is a 58.3%, 13.75 million viewer drop-off from last year. In addition, the show earned a mere 1.9 rating among the key demographic of adults age 18-49.


It was the second year in a row that the show plummeted in the ratings. For comparison, that's a big drop-off from last year's 23.64 million viewers and a 5.3 in the key demographic -- both of those numbers were already previous all-time lows. 


While several factors such as the coronavirus pandemic, shuttered movie theaters, and the limited number of films that came out because of virus contributed to the record-low ratings, it’s likely that no host to build the broadcast around didn’t help put eyes on the screen.
