2 miles in trenton, and down to about two and a half miles in the lehigh valley. temperatures, high temperatures, today, we know they struggled, 46 only the high temperature in mount pocono, we topped off at 53 degrees in philadelphia, more than 15 degrees below our average high temperature, and it is still very cool right now, of course, 50 degrees in allentown, 51 in reading, calling in at 52 right now in ac. so why is it so cool? we have the stalled out frontal boundary to the south lingering over the last several days, seeing this easterly component to the winds flow, so east winds coming from off the ocean pushing cool moist ocean air right into our backyard, temperatures not too far to our south, or up into the 60s, 70s, wouldn't that be nice? and we are going to warm things up as we head into the day tomorrow with the winds shift, but, keeping rain in the forecast, and overnight tonight, some scattered showers, still around, fog, areas of drizzle, down to 51 degrees. we start off with a east wind tomorrow. but then we shift it over to a south wind. so, it will bump temperatures
up. it will break the clouds back up i think a bit as we head into monday afternoon. could see sunshine breaking out, but conversely that will de-stabilize our atmosphere, chance of thunderstorms as we head into the afternoon hours. storm scan3, showing us, quieter conditions with batch of rainfall moving off shore. still some drizzle in place. we have much more moisture to contend with, which with a approaching area of low pressure, so you see active weather really all across the eastern half of the country as that area of low pressure makes a slow approach. so overnight tonight, our model imagery showing us we will deal with more scattered shower activity, especially, as we move past midnight, early tomorrow morning, still dealing with some rounds of rainfall, tomorrow morning, it will quiet down a little bit. the shower activity is going to be more spotty, in nature, but if we do see that sunshine breaking out tomorrow afternoon, we could see indeed some hit or miss thunderstorms popping up with the destabilize dollars atmosphere, because of the warmer temperatures as well.
>> tomorrow looks like some spotty showers around,. >> early afternoon, and there is the cloud deck breaking up a bit. but notice some thunderstorms popping up. now, not widespread rainfall, not wash out but if we do see the storms popping up, could get pretty good downpour moving through your backyard as we head into the afternoon. >> head into tuesday, more rain in the forecast, check out the rainfall estimates from some of the models differing a bit, see the trends, rainy conditions as we head into tuesday showers looking likely again. >> wednesday look look it driest day, high temperature of 70 degrees. with some sunshine in store. still chance of passing shower. rain chances bump back up into thursday and friday, area of low pressure, that's going to kind of stall out off shore. and then sunday of course is mom's day. at this point looks like we could still see some wet weather, but little way off at this point.
but looking for some sun, we should have couple hours of sunshine tomorrow afternoon. >> get out there! >> set your watch, get your sunglasses, you have two hours. >> and that's it. >> oh, boy, thanks so much. appreciate t well the phillies wow on a roll. >> says the starting pitching this season would be better, well, so far they've been very good. on the mounds this afternoon, looking for fourth win of the season against the indians. freddie drove in three runs last night, drove in the first, game, with single, to score. that will make it one to nothing. next inning, vince, nice defensive help, darin ruff. check it out. nice diving catch in left, ending possible indians rally. who say he couldn't play left? through six shut out innings. retired the final nine batters that he faced. hector came in, he got his first career save. so the phillies win their
sixth straight game. swept the indians two-one. >> to beat those two guys, and then, you know, battle the way we did yesterday, you know, having fun out there. everything is, you know, coming together. you know, and it shows. >> now, to the eagles, the birds yesterday completed the draft. they pick four players on offense, four on defense, including couple of players with a troubled past, they pick running back wendell smallwood in the fifth round. the wilmington native, two years ago on witness intimidation charge, those charges were dropped. then in the seventh rounds they picked safety mills, two years ago, he was arrested for second agree battery involving a woman. those charges later reduced and then dropped. here's howie roseman on why they were drafted. >> when you make questionable decisions in your life, it is affecting you going forward, it is costing these guys a lot of money. so what we hope is that they're good people and that
they just made mistakes like we all do, and that we develop them and that going forward this is just part of their history. >> demanded to be traded, was un happy, that the eagles picked carson wentz, he is missing the eagles voluntary work out. now that's a problem, because doug peterson is installing new offense, so does this mean he may loose the starting quarterback job? >> i think it depend on how and when he does come back and how fast we can catch him up and put him back in that situation and see where he is at at that time. again, nobody makes the team in april. we're not, you know, making any roster adjustments, you know, and letting people go. all about evaluation, and he is in that evaluation process? coming un tonight in the sport zone, we will talk more about the sam bradford stand-off with eagles management, and we'll grade the birds draft when the inquirer's eagles
