look at the conditions around you. today our eyewitness weather watchers got the first up close look at what this vehicle can actually do. >> it's an absolutely remarkable vehicle. i remember when we launched a program that the old one came to my house and we launched it and this is a complete upgrade compared to old ones though. i'm so impressed with this. >> thank you kyle. this is more than just a weather mobile as kyle said this is just an upgrade. it tracks lightning, it tracks rainfall, it actually counts the rain drops and how fast the wind is blowing and it has the capability to report the weather from anywhere in any kind of weather. no cell service, no power, it's no problem for the mobile weather watcher. we're very excited that this guy has arrived. and excited to take it out on to the roads. there are weather watchers this morning debuting the first look at that weather watcher. the good news is the rain pretty much held off for most of our weather watcher festivities this
afternoon and this morning but not so much for long. center city looking pretty quiet there are a few light showers moving through but the heaviest rain is still well off to the south. you can see here on storm scan 3 bee are seeing that plume of moisture it's been impacting the carolinas all day long just really pushing in from the atlantic ocean as the system works its way up the coast it's drawing lots of moisture and falling heavily across portions of the carolinas. we've got some light showers out there right now. nothing all that impressive yet but it's all going to continue to move in. we've got a very rainy day on the way for you tuesday. it's 51 in millville, that wind is going to continue battering the coast as this low moves up the coast line it's an east wind prolonged through tonight and through tomorrow. periods of rain heavy at times and gusty winds battering the coast line that's where the winds already strongest. timing it out overnight not that bad, just a few scattered
showers, but watch as this wall of rain starts to lift in from the south tomorrow morning, 8:00 a.m. you may get to work dry just some mist and drizzle there, but the heaviest rain pushes in by mid morning and it's going to come all day long. it looks like the heaviest will be mid to late afternoon. here's 2:00 p.m. embedded downpours, very heavy rain falling at that point. 5:00 p.m. the afternoon is impacted and even still tracking showers at this time tomorrow night before we slowly clear it out here on wednesday. we're looking at plus or minus an inch or so of rain potentially some higher amounts at the coast. it all depends where those heaviest pockets set up but we're good for at least around an inch here in philadelphia. the trees, the grass they'll love it but it's a slow-go across the area, the high only 59 degrees. then after that 59 degrees take a look at this warm-up. 70 wednesday, 80s by thursday and friday. just in time of course for the nfl draft.
thursday looks beautiful. a chamber of commerce kind of day. 81 degrees sunshine thursday. 80s friday and saturday. it is going to feel like a taste of summer this weekend. we're going to jump right from april '50s and soggy tomorrow into the 80s. it's actually going to feel a bit muggy this weekend. just a complete turnaround. maybe the kind of weekend to drag out your sprinkler for the kids. a completely scenario. >> feel like getting back on the track at the penn relay. >> me too. >> maybe not. >> kate, thank you. and let's go back out to sports director don bell live on the parkway with the nfl draft just three days away. hey don. >> did he say something about the penn relays. yukee are you trying to run? >> no, i lost my mind there. >> when we come back should the eagles take a corner back in the first round and also malcolm
you're not taking these. hey, hey, hey! you're not taking those. whoa, whoa! you're not taking that. come with me. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. mom, i'm taking the subaru. don't be late. even when we're not there to keep them safe, our subaru outback will be.
(vo) love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. and welcome back to the ben franklin parkway. the nfl draft as you know is thursday night and eagles general manager likes to get frisky on draft day. last year he traded up twice to get carson went. now he has the 14th selection in the first round should he make a move once again. earlier today i talked to former eagles scout and nfl network analyst. >> he's always going to be aggressive if somebody that they want he's not going to sit and wait there for him to get there. i think in this draft you could maybe see him maybe move up a
little bit in round one and maybe later on you try and slide back and recoup some of those picks. that's something howy does as good as anybody is manipulate that board. >> during the off season the eagles lost both starting corners. nolan corner signed with the dallas cowboys as a free agent and they released leotis. they are desperate to have an impact player at that position should they take a corner with their first pick. >> i think corner has to be one of your first two picks. whether you want to do it in the first one, this is a loaded draft in the position i think in the second round you're going to have some good options there. i don't think you want to leave the second round without a corner especially where the eagles are positioned roster-wise right now. i would be very surprised if one of their first two picks is not a corner. >> let's talk about the eagles who are on the squad right now. they continue their off-season workouts today. we had an opportunity to catch
up with malcolm jenkins. he was a first round selection back in 2009 out of ohio state. he was drafted as a corner back but later moved over to safety. but we asked him about the transition from college to the pros playing corner. >> in college you play 4, 5, legitimate receivers in the whole season where in this year i feel like every team we play has the number one big-time name. so that's hard to transition. and there is scheme which you're asking what that guy to do compared to what he did in college. it's just a hard position to evaluate. the phillies are off tonight they start a three-game series against the marlins tomorrow and also aaron nola the righty going on a 10-day disabled list with a strain in his lower back. they think he'll miss one to two starts. we'll be right back.
>> gramry award winning musician kenny g. performs a concert 30,000 feet in the air. >> he was on a weekend flight from tampa heading to los angeles. he agreed to perform a private concert only if his fellow passengers donated $1,000 to delta's fund raiser benefiting relay for life. they doubled the cash and he kept his promise.
not bad. kate? >> taking 'look at your weekend watch and it going to be feeling a whole lot warmer out there by the weekend, feeling like june with temperatures in the 80s. both days a little muggy. good weekend to break out the sprinkler and cool the kids off. we do have a storm chance late on sunday. most of the weekend
