religious beliefs. davis was found in contempt of court last week. well, definitely felt like summer. today we hit 90 degrees, so we expect to hit the low 90s tomorrow. if we hit 90 degrees on wednesday, that is going to be heat wave number 6. so we do have that in the forecast, then that's going to be followed by thunderstorms this week. mostly thursday we could see some as early as late in the day wednesday or wednesday night, and once this rain leaves, we're going to have big changes coming in for the weekend in the form of cooler temperatures closer to where we should be this time of year. right now we have clear skies across the area. allentown is in the mid-70s, philadelphia around 77 degrees, atlantic city around 73 degrees. when you wake up tomorrow morning around 8:00 a.m., expect mostly sunny skies. here are your 8:00 a.m. temperatures, whether you're at the bus stop or heading out for
a morning jog. 73 mt. pocono, low 70s philadelphia area, mt. holly and still most of our suburbs about mid-70s close to the shore. but we'll be staying dry. it will be a day much like today. locally we are dry on satellite and radar off to our west. that's a cold front we're watching. that will be moving through as we go into the end of the week, but until then, we do expect to stay hot. here's future weather. going into tomorrow, the hot temperatures continue into the afternoon. 4:00 p.m., mostly sunny skies, looking dry. we expect to get sbinto the low 90s again. then wednesday we expect more clouds to move in. there is a chance we could see some late day showers, so if our temperatures get hot enough before this moves in, then we would hit heat wave number 6, still feeling unseasonably hot for this time of year. but the rain will be in the forecast late wednesday into thursday. by thursday afternoon, i think some of this rain could be more widespread than what the model
is showing, so we have showers and storms in the forecast. take a look at all the heat across the country, especially the middle of the country, so we are still in this hot weather pattern, but that jet stream, that's going to be dividing that cooler air from getting to us until the rain moves through. watch what happens. there is a cold front and the storms we expect thursday, and there's the cooler air right behind it. that is going to move in as we end out the week and go into your week. you will notice cooler temperatures, and in fact, those will be temperatures where we should be this time of year, right around 80 degrees for an average high. for tonight, though, we stay mostly clear for a low in philadelphia, 63 degrees north and west. tomorrow temperatures in the low 90s again, and we expect the heat to continue for wednesday. then some late-day or even thunderstorms at night on wednesday going into thursday. thursday we could have even some locally heavy rain at times. temperatures about mid-80s. by friday we do start to dry out. 83 degrees. that's when that cool air mass starts to move in putting us
where we are to be this time of year. again, the average high 1is 81. we should not be in the 90s, but since we have this hot air weather pattern in place, maybe we've gotten used to it. come the weekend, we are looking at temperatures much cooler, closer to where we consider them seasonable for this time of year. >> but if you like hot weather, it will be around for a few more days. well,ñi from our jersey sho bureau tonight, the miss america preliminaries begin tomorrow night in atlantic city. nbc 10 was there as the contestants arrived last week. tomorrow they'll also unveil the shoes they'll use in the show us your shoes parade. this year's winner will be crowned inside boardwalk hall coming up on sunday. amy? we are exactly one week away from the eagles season opener. hear from the head coach on his final roster. a team had lost 12 straight.
the road to hell is paved with good intentions. mr. president, we know you tried to make a good deal with iran. whose leaders stone women, hang homosexuals, sponsor mass terrorism, scream for the destruction of israel and death to america. so, what if you're wrong? and they can't be trusted? senator casey, don't trust iran. vote this down.

on this team and i don't look at where they came from or stats or anything, and i think if you do, you're going to hurt your football team. there was no master plan, everybody comes in there and competes when you get here in april, and we'll let it play out the way it plays out. >> it's that time of year. don't forget to vote for a high school football game of the week. this week's choices, garnet valley at bonner-prendie. highland versus camden. quarterback geno smith says he will not press charges against the former teammate who broke his jaw with a punch. paulie hit smith. here's smith today addressing that incident for the first time. >> none of the outsiders were in this locker room, and i think the team did a great job of moving forward and not talking about it, and that's what i want
to do as well. i want to move forward and put that incident behind me. i put it behind me, and we'll move forward. >> back here in philadelphia, the phillies will recall david buchanan this week. he could be the sixth starter as they expand their pitching rotation to finish out the season. tonight opening series of the braves who came in losers of 12 straight. only 15,125 fans on hand tonight. that's the lowest attendance ever at citizens bank. freddie freeman comes off aaron haran. havara gets the silence treatment and they finally cut him a break and celebrate with him. we'll be right back after this.
