5:47 am
the entire region even down toward the show, potential to go below freezing, waking up sunday morning for the city 26 degrees. low 20's, up toward the lehigh valley and berks county upper teens, mount pocono, weren't the windchills, the actual air temps. today though, chilly, we should low 60s, 43 that's it, may struggle to get to. that will rain, snow, with east north winds, 15 miles per hour, gets breezy tonight, behind the system northwest winds ushers in cold air, 26 for the city, colder out in the suburbs, with the rain and snow ending right around 7:00, 8:00 or so. here is the extended forecast, still chilly sunday, 45 degrees, with some sunshine, monday, opening day, milder though, 60 degrees, but there will be more clouds, maybe shower or two specially in the afternoon and evening. better chance of some showers early tuesday, highs in the mid 50's, then beyond that, each day gets little warmer, we will keep it dry and sunny next wednesday, thursday, and friday, like potential to
