it's not uncommon to see these shifts in the forecast when you're talking about a storm. >> people are so cures >> we start talking about them early. which is pretty cool. we have the technology to do so and you get to come on that forecasting ride. still, a lot you consider with this storm. a lot of uncertainty once it heads past the carolinas, as we get closer to the storm's make. everything is starting to come into more of a concensus. let's take quick look at a time lapse video from today. it was kind of a cloudy gloomy overcast day and clouds broke up in time for sunset. it's a cool 57 at the leadership academy in philly right now. clear skies, high pressure will build that as we go into the day tomorrow and we got a pretty nice day on the way. pretty nice finish to the week. i want to show you this fronts moving cross portions of the northern planes, this will be a major player in what happens to matthew as we head to the weekend. in the meantime temperatures dropping steadily. down to 52. chilly in allentown, 60 in
philly. 60 in wilmington and 57 degrees in trenton. high pressure gains more of a foot hold tomorrow, the breeze around there high from the northeast, tomorrow sunny but cool. a cool breeze from the northeast. we start to see a wind switch later in the week, more of a southwest flow as the front approaches, so thursday and friday look warm. thursday we start to see matthew beginning to creep up the florida coast. so high pressure out to sea, we got the trough moving in from the west of the let's talk about the players on the field here. take a look at the weapon vapor loop. there is matthew turning over eastern cuba. strong ridge of high pressure over the atlantic. stranger this builds, the further matthew will go, once matthew heads up to the carolinas we start to watch the advancing fronts, as that trough approaches matthew, depending on it's position, it could kick it out to sea and send it away. if the storm is lower, it would miss the connection completely keeping matthew further to the south in this curved area off
the southeast coast and that would mean minimal impact for us, here are the two scenarios. this is the gfs scenario, hugs the coast up towards north carolina, gets sent out to sea. trending further off store than yesterday, less rain, not as windy still some rains and gusty winds, that would be late saturday into sunday. the european model through a curve ball. that keeps it south, loops it back right then and there, wake ends it, 0 direct impact, this would mean no impacts from this and general al sunny weekend. big changes in these two scenarios and depends on what matthew does once it heads up to the carolinas and how it interacts. there's still the chance if this makes a land fall along the southeast coast. we do expect it to recurve, we do have a rain and wind threat saturday into sunday. indirect threat than a direct impact from matthew, this would
be more along the front absorbing moisture, i can say it's looking less and less likely that we see a direct hit from matthew in our area, so that is good news for us, of course, that could still shift, but as we get closer to the impact this weekend, things coming a little bit more in focus for us. still have to plan for rain saturday into sunday but that looks like the worst case scenario at this point. >> good news for now. ? yes. >> thank you. don bell up next with sports >> the future is now. as a matter of fact. how about this? thanksgiving that no one wants to remember. why eagles have pay back. a reason to smile for sixers why eagles have pay back. a reason to smile for sixers fans after t ♪ i was on my way to work, the next thing you know, i was on the ground. ♪ the trash truck ran over both my legs. ♪ i had sixteen surgeries. ♪ i don't sleep through the night unless i have my medicine. ♪ my medical bills was piling up. my employer stopped paying me.
