thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you so much for having me. >> good ph mills. a lot of sunshine yesterday a different story today and there are some showers that could be on our doorstep during the afternoon rush. we will be tracking them. we have got a cooler week than what we saw last week. but it's looking like next week might get warm again. so we are not done with the warm weather. and forecast for the papal weekend, of course, within the 7-day forecast. look how ominous it looks out there. the clouds will be getting thicker and thicker and there just isn't very much rain close
11:50 am
by. so, it looks a little worse than it really is. 68 degrees with the cloudy skies, east northeast wind at 11 miles an hour. three degrees cooler than it was at this time yesterday. poconos, the clouds, too. probably get showers after 7 or 8:00 tonight. and for the temperatures, 63 in allen town, 62, reading, pottstown, so it is kind of chilly north and west with the clouds pretty thick. 68 in philadelphia. 66 in wilmington. 66 also in wrightstown. and right at the beaches, the wind is coming in off the ocean and it's coming in strong enough so that that temperature is not going to rise very much. but they are also not going to get the rain, because the rain is farther to the west and so, first washington gets it and then perhaps chester county in our area, berks county, as we head toward the late afternoon portion of the rush, new castle
11:51 am
county getting a little, there is some in mongomery, then bucks and the lehigh valley and the poconos get it generally after 7:00 so that would be after the rush. you can see much of new jersey, just cloudy during all of this and this whole system tends to weaken. then our eyes are going to focus to the south and we are going to watch the storm develop out in the ocean, gonna have big circulation with it, going to continue our northeast wind for much of the week, preventing it from getting too warm and the question is just how far north does this moisture get? doesn't look like the storm itself is going to come up, but will the northern edge of the rain get up here? this particular computer model keeps it to the south, but just barely and that is friday, so you can tell that it's a relatively close call here. right now, we are expecting the rain to stay to the south. that's been our forecast since last week.
11:52 am
cloudy and cooler air chance of showers toward the afternoon rush, especially in western sections. temperatures get nothing the low 70s in the philadelphia area, not even out of the 60s north and west. then for tomorrow, another day with a lot of clouds, especially in the morning that will keep the temperature down some. and then, more sunshine equals warmer weather, as we get near 80 degrees wednesday and thursday, then some of those clouds start to come up from that southern system. again, right now, we are keeping the rain to the south on saturday, although we have the clouds in and then start to see improving weather sunday. and we will be right back.
