cold saturday with periods of rain especially to the south and east down the shore and in portions of delaware. those are the areas that could get the heaviest amounts of rainfall tomorrow. let's take look what's going on start off way look at storm scan3 showing the rain pushing in it looks robust as of now what we're watching two pieces of energy with this system. it's very much like what we talk about when we talk about winter snowstorm generally speaking off slow swing from the great lakes and another piece of energy along the coast. they form or kind of fuse together faze what we call it and the more inland system transfers its energy to the coast that will be happening here. so coming up i'll show was that looks like as this piece starts to weaken and this piece picks up the pace taking heft eighty three rain along the coast and out to sea. and that means for us it may be more showers and occasional rainfall through the day versus heavy soaking rain. but what i want to stress still plan for it to be complete downpour because look what we've got going on as the coastal low develops here saturday afternoon this is around 5:00 p.m.
notice the heavy rain down the shore in portions of southern delaware. if this scoots a few more miles northward we're getting heavy rain here in philadelphia and it still could do that. all depends where the bulls eye of heavy rain sets up. you can see it's very close to philadelphia. it's cloudy. it's bam damp with that coastal low you've got an east wind that will keep temperatures only in the low 60s. but the instead yesterday rain looks to be south and east of philadelphia at the moment. heading into sunday notice we've got scattered showers popping up through the afternoon. this is 3:00 p.m. nothing organized but still with that system kind of dominating the weather pattern scattered showers will be around also perhaps some breaks of late day sunshine on sunday at least a better chance. let's take look at our four model. gfs and euro model long-term models they do best in the medium range a few days out. our mesa scale models notice the numbers are going down. rpm in house model tenth of an inch in philadelphia by sunday little more rain as those showers add to the totals. instead of looking at over an
inch of rain i think we're looking quarter of an inch to an inch especially south and east. still pockets of rain in the afternoon and highs only in the 60s and that low will dominate our weather pattern right into the start of next week. when we finally get it out of here that's when temperatures will be able to warm up quite nicely headed into the middle of next week. tomorrow periods of rain, cooler and damp. scattered showers at the very least. heavy rain at worst and then as we head into sunday maybe a few breaks of sun. monday gets better. tuesday slightly better more clouds than seven. 77 and 80s by next wednesday. once we get the storm out of here -- >> and then, and then and then. >> and then. >> looks warm for memorial day weekend as well. >> all right. >> don is here now. you'll switch it up and talk soccer. >> the union with a chance to move into first with a win and it was tight early but went sideways late. see what happened to the phillies at the bank.
