and so this is the day. we have rain coming in tomorrow maybe even some thunderstorms. and we have a windy weekend ahead. well citizens bank park getting ready for that home opener. and weather is looking pretty good as you'll see in a minute. 56 degrees, the wind south, southwest, trying to warm us up. 11 degrees warmer than it was yesterday. the pollen pretty high today, it will go down tomorrow with the rain but going back up over the weekend, by easter sunday it is going to be really high. and the temperatures in the mid-50s across most of the region. 48 degrees at mount pocono. different story at the shore, the southwest wind coming in and keeping avalon only 47 while in the mid-50s just inland. and that is going to be the thing that is going to happen over tomorrow most of the area gets to 70. not along the jersey shore.

and that ocean temperature, 42 degrees, is the reason why. that combined with the wind direction. 10 to 15 degrees warmer than it was this time yesterday throughout the area. lots of sunshine around now. but there are clouds rain back to the west. and that will continue to increase, but as far as the threat of severe weather, well we have a moderate risk of at least some heavy rain and some lightning, but very very low risk. so the high wind and especially hail or tornadoes. we'll keep that up to date for whatever risk we do have. the hour by hour forecast shows that southerly wind. and shows it warming up into the mid-60s. and overnight tonight, it doesn't really drop very much. it is still a southerly wind and is barely below 60. few light showers generally before day break.
11:52 am
then more significant showers come in during the day tomorrow. you can see could even develop into some lines and then saw that temperature get to 70 degrees. but tomorrow night, it starts going down a little bit. the wind shifts we get some more showers. and by saturday it is a lot cooler. in the 40s and doesn't really warm up a whole lot during the day and it is very windy. so saturday is going to be a windy day. but for the home opener for the phillies, it is not going to be as windy as saturday and it is going to be warmer. the wind looks like it is going to be blowing out to right center helping the hitters. and the temperature, look at this, 63 degrees, with sunshine to start off the game. 66 degrees at 5:00. and 63 at 7:00. you don't get much better than that in early april for baseball. that's for sure. not this part of the country.
11:53 am
