clear, a bit of a breeze but that's a cool breeze, the numbers dropped into the very low 40s in the mountains. 50 in trenton and wilmington is 48. and a little bit to make it feel chillier. that's a dry wind so that is not going to give us cloud cover, any sign of showers, not for today at least. that may change over the weekend. 50 right now in trenton, wilmington is 58 degrees. northeast philadelphia is 48, some 50s right along the delaware river. but inland 46 in doylestown right now. middle 40s for quakertown and sunshine will warm the temperatures up, just a few scattered clouds at the shore, most of the rest of the saer completely in the clear. but look to the west, this cloud cover that arrives on sunday. and there is a chance of light showers on sunday. the heavy rainfall will miss us but we'll see the clouds arrive over the weekend. the future cast shows that rainfall willble on the move
into the midwest by first thing saturday morning. saturday morning will be cold but during the day we'll see spotty clouds, no sign of showers. later on sunday that is the best chance of seeing showers in the area. then we get a rain chance for monday as well. today, sunglasses and a jacket to start with. upper 50s to near 60 degrees this afternoon. northwest winds at 15 miles an hour with some higher gusts. tomorrow we'll start at 37 but warm during the day to 58. and in the 50s for the temple owls game and halloween trick-or-treaters. for the walk to the defeat als sunday morning there is a slight chance of a shower, otherwise clouds and sunshine. if you get to that event or any event early on sunday it's probably because you forgot to turn the clocks back. a rain chance on monday. look at the warm-up for tuesday, wednesday and thursday. >> thank you for the reminder,
bill. a lot going on this weekend. halloween, the temple game, day light saving, everyone needs to remember that. we will. >> also remembering what it looks like there, what have you got, the schuylkill? >> yes, we're around the boulevard. typically around the 7:00 hour but we're still about an hour and 10 minutes away from that stoxt show you what we're still in good spirits around the boulevard, no problems. see the delay in this camera shot. both drive times pretty much the same. still 12 minutes so no problems in or out of center city. that's until about 6:00 a.m. watch for crews and cleanup.
