furthermore showers to the west. then we have to deal with this next system. right here it's bring something rain and even thunderstorms to portions of the great lakes region tonight. that eventually will drop southward bringing with it a very cold pocket of air. think of this like a puddle of cold air in the upper at months four that's going to dip southward this weekend. bringing with it clouds or i should say late this week into the weekend clouds, chilly conditions and another threat for rain. temps right now chilly 54 in philadelphia. only 50 in atlantic city and wildwood. 47 in mount pocono. here's what this looks like. scattered showers as you wake up tomorrow morning. it's not a total washout outside tomorrow but scattered showers, some periods of light rain on and off throughout the entire day. it's a lot like today. may stay a bit damp even through tomorrow evening. then on thursday, that's when this bowling ball of cold air like we talk about dips to the south. possibly even some mountain snow even in north carolina as we head through the day thursday but thursday doesn't look like a very wet day for us. it's just cloudy, maybe some mist and drizzle but the rain
spins back in on friday so this system transfers its energy offshore. pulls in some moisture from the atlantic ocean you can see this plume that developed over philadelphia friday morning will continue to drift inland through the day the first half of friday looks like the west test part of the rest of the week. that then rain progresses inland and try to get this cleared out of here a bit as we get into our saturday. so what to expect for the next few days. we've got several weak disturbances moving through. chance for a shower at any time. basically from tonight through saturday morning any time you step outside expect to get wet at least with a light shower or drizzle it's just around all the time. shower chances each day. temperatures stay below average this time of the year really dependent on sunshine. if you have cloud cover, you're not going to get enough sun to warm things up temperatures stay below average looks like the worst commute will be friday morning commute. that's when the rain should be heaviest for our area. don't think any commutes look great over the next few days but the heaviest rain is friday morning. again chances for rain each day. tomorrow 40% chance of one spot
in our area picking someone rain. thursday a little bit of a smaller chance i don't think thursday is that wet of a day. friday though back to 80%. and saturday at least the chance for a shower in the morning. overnight mostly cloudy a spotty shower 52 degrees. tomorrow movely cloudy, scattered showers again plan for them at any time have your rain gear and we've got race for the cure this weekend mother's day morning 8:00 a.m., cannot rule out the threat for showers. i'm hoping we can shift that timing a little sooner get them over with saturday night. i got a very close eye on it i'll keep you posted as of right now though we may need the light rain jackets on sunday morning but the good news a little more sun this weekend should start to break the pattern but it doesn't look until monday or tuesday we really break out and get some nicer spring weather back in the region. >> light rain jackets on stand by. >> happening on. don is here. what's coming upping. >> what a surprise talking about sandy b when a competition in really a competition. we have the latest on sam bradford and a pitching dual is interrupted by a 411-foot
