next couple days. we'll have to get used to calling it london like weather, lots of cloud cover, rain, drizzle, pretty much each day we have a bright spot in the next five days and that day is saturday. let's take a quick look what the is happening we'll take to you a time lapse top start things off and this is how most of the day looked. gray and gloomy. notice what happens in the late afternoon though, eventually just in time for surprise set we get a few breaks of sunshine. blue sky a bit and then the sun went down. tomorrow may be a little opposite and can start the day with sun. by midday clouds roll in and eventually showers you see lurking to the west they will get here for us as well. you see a line of intense showers and thunderstorms over pours of southern indiana into kentucky and i don't expect severe weather us to. it will be cloudy and cool for that. it will turn out to be a rainy afternoon. even if it's sunny when you leave the house you may want to grab the umbrella when you head out the door. they may need it. bring the umbrella awith you.
46 millville, chilly. 34 mount pocono and 49 allentown and sitting at 50 in philadelphia. what a departure. yesterday's high 86. today's high 55. more than 30 degrees colder. a big slap in the face for mother nature with temperatures dropping quite a bit and tomorrow we get to 60. clouds roll in and then showers especially in the afternoon and evening. on friday, cloudy and damp. fridays are very chilly day. i don't think we break out of 50s and showers around at any time. then saturday a little bit of bright spot. certainly not the nicest day we've seen in the next -- in the past couple weeks and not bad at least compared to what we'll see tomorrow and friday. so, future weather shows how this happens and notice this the band of showers gets in 1:00. pretty steady rain in a few spots tomorrow afternoon and it continues through tomorrow evening. friday, cloudy, chilly, batch of showers moving through. and in the afternoon and evening. and then we try to clear it out. saturday, notice the clouds try to hang on. we'll get a little sunshine by
sunday that is when our next chance for rain moves in. as of right now looks generally dry sunday morning an i would not rule out the rain creeping in earlier on sunday morning. if you run the broad street run keep that in mind. overnight mostly cloudy and chilly, 48. tomorrow mostly cloudy. again if we see sun it's in the morning and watch for showers in the afternoon. high arounds 60. here is broad street run forecast. as of right now, mostly cloudy and not bad. temperature wise for runners, 8 a.m. i cannot rule out showers coming in earlier. i hope it holds off until the afternoon on sunday. these storms like to creepp in earlier. again have a rain plan perhaps if you do ten miles on sunday. eyewitness weather 7 day forecast doesn't look great. saturday necessaryled in between four ugly days and middle of next week it looks like we may timely break out of cloudy, gloomy gray pattern and temperatures closer to 70 tuesday and wednesday.
so if you have outdoor plans this weekend plan for saturday. not the best day we've ever had and better than alternative. >> extra bengay for the pen relay runners. >> miracle rub. >> i love that stuff. >> love it. >> all right. let's check in with don bell live in chicago on the eave of nfl draft, dop. >> guys by the way, rain for the broad street run? you're killing me. i have no contingency plan for that. i have the light on carson win and sam brad ford and plus the first big apple and wind yip city and now potentially city of brotherly love. why the nfl draft could come to the delaware valley. we're coming
that ao 1, audience of one. it's a reminder they plays for the lord. he's a very religious man and tomorrow he could have his prayers answered. the top two quarterbacks you know about wentz likely to go number two over tuille philadelphia eagles and jared goff out of cal the los angeles rams are expected to make him the number one selection. >> i think it's always a dream. and it's always a long shot dream. but for now it could be possible reality is cool. again it's exciting that's the best way to describe it. exciting, not really nervous, more excited than anxious. >> you know he's excited to go number two overall he has a different situation he could play alongside sam brad ford who he manneded a trade. meanwhile ian rap apour saying denver broncos reached out for
brad ford's availability and it seems for the time being eagles want to hold on to brad ford. >> fans in philadelphia got a surprise today. they used the app favor to order geno's cheesesteaks. who brought them to the house. eagles tight end brent celek making house calls in the 215 today and he was asked about bradford's trade demand. >> i'm not disappointed in him everyone has their own decisions to make and we has a team would like him there and to work with him at the end of the day it's his decision. >> for the second consecutive year nfl draft is in chicago. right here in the windy city. well, in 2017, it could be in our hometown. commissioner roger guidele confirming today that philadelphia is bun of the top candidates to land the draft next year. here's the funny thing.
because of all the deals the eagles have made, they don't have as of right now, a first round selection in 2017. all right. let's move on to baseball. phillies, well surprising us so far this season. just moved to 500 after snapping national's eight game home written winning streak tonight they're looking to make it two in a row. jeremy on the bump and pitching well. in fact he was flat out balling had eight strikeout in the games and 7 innings of shutout ball as for offense oldie but goody ruiz going solo with a home run and how about a shutout tonight. phillies beat nationals 3-0. that is just the good way to get it done. they will look for the sweep tomorrow at nationals park. that's the story from chicago. we're taking a break. we'll be right
