it is out of the south-southwest not feeling very warm outside. so you can't bank on that really helping to warm you up, obviously, in addition to the fact it is such a dry air mass, low relative humidity, combined with the breeze we just showed you, for example, cut town, you could ends up with wild fire. so, obviously the weather doesn't cause fires, but you want to be real careful disposing of of cigarette but the, never toss it out the window, find the right recepticle. be smart about that. any wild fire that does start could spread very easily, very quickly. let me walk you through future weather, all the way to tomorrow morning, you know, we are waking up with you on "eyewitness news" this morning, it does look to me like we will start to see some lines of life on the radar before the morning show is done, generally toward the tail end of the typical morning russian toward midday, is when we will see the front actually cross through, bringing rounds of probably some steady rain, and couple of thunderstorms, at this point, we don't expect any severe weather, but there will still be residual showers even behind the actual front. and then we start to clear things out overnight tomorrow. so, i call it essentially all
day event, generally here are your bullet points. gusts right around 30 miles per hour, temperatures though in the 60s, that's the trade off, little warmer tomorrow, but there will be some scattered showers, and/or thunderstorm to dodge out, there specially, again, for midday. meanwhile, the villanova parade, we have got you covered there, as well, i would dress in the navy and white sweatshirts, as opposed to t-shirts, talking low 50's at best here, for friday, with some sunshine, and we also have more of westerly breeze out there, as well, so at least the winds will be at the back of our champions, as they're moving toward dilworth. meanwhile weeks take you forward in the eyewitness weather seven day forecast, temperatures going on uphill climb by thursday, 62 degrees, again the trade off is the wet weather. by friday, back into some sun, and the chill starts to settle in again. leading to the chilliest day of the forecast of course coming just in time for your weekends, isn't that always the way. generally looks dry. i would say other than quick shower maybe, sprinkle of rain or snow on saturday, guys, yes, chilly but we should stay dry. we'll see more sunshine specially on sunday. >> as long as we can see more
sunshine. >> exactly, got to look at the bright side, no pun intended. >> the little things. >> i wish we could share our rain with the people in oklahoma. >> no kidding. >> that would help. >> absolutely. meanwhile in other news, facebook live video streaming appears to be a hit. the feature launched into late january, and is now available in 60 countries. today, facebook live is getting a big bump with new features, and its own dedicated short cut. on the bottom of its iphone and add droid apps replacing the current link to facebook messenger. ceo mark zuckerberg will be streaming today to promote facebook live. >> i really like him on facebook. have you guys followed his page? >> course, yes. >> baby picture, such a proud dad. >> really is, a family guy for sure. >> just a normal guy. >> and we were on facebook live right now. >> flip that camera over. there you go.
