research. >> and glenn "hurricane" schwartz promises it will be a nice day tomorrow. maybe a little cool but that's a nice day for you guys. the rock 'n roll philadelphia half marathon is happening tomorrow at 7:30. for more information, head to our web site at or check out the nbc 10 app. thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you. >> awesome. >> reporter: it's 7:30 tomorrow morning, it will be pretty cold, in the 30s even in the city. we have a november chill and that's going to affect both the trick-or-treating and the temple/notre dame game and a possibility of some sunday showers. we'll get into that. right now we've got more clouds than sun but they're fair weather clouds, not very thick. kind of thin out there. and that's why there's no rain falling. the wind continues to be fairly
11:50 am
brisk out of the west, 53 degrees. we're gusting 2 ining 21 miles and 15 colder than this time yesterday and not even 50 degrees in westchester. several other places in chester county also reporting 49 degrees. and the warm spots are in the mid-50s. compared to 72 degrees the last two days. see these clouds coming down? there are also breaks back here near the lehigh valley so it won't stay cloudy all day and much of south jersey and delaware have sunshine. so just because you see clouds out your window doesn't mean there's cloudiness everywhere and it doesn't mean it will rain. there's nothing on the radar that would indicate that is. not close by. a lot of moisture in the middle of the country. it's possible some of that could come up by monday but we have a front that's come through. the colder air is certainly here
11:51 am
and some of the coldest air is coming tonight and into saturday morn morning. low temperatures will be in the 30s. 33 in allentown and reading, 34 in trenton, doylestown, 37 even in philadelphia. so that's pretty cold. as we go through the afternoon, it's sunny tomorrow. more sun sthooun than today tsh. clouds come in tomorrow night into sunday. chance of a couple showers in the poconos and this latest computer model keeping it dry during the day sunday and also keeping most of that monday rain down to the south. so the best chance of rain on monday would be in delaware and extreme south jersey and even that is just a possibility. what is certain is it's going to be chilly for trick-or-treating. it will be 56 degrees at 6:00,
11:52 am
that's when the sun sets. that gets completely dark about half hour later. 6:30 it will get completely dark so you have darkness and you've got a chill so definitely have to prepare for that. and for the temple game, it's also going to be chilly. it's going to be in the low 50s to start off with, upper 40s to end up with, mostly clear skies and not much wind. a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon, breezy and colder, high temperatures in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. another day in the upper 50s tomorrow after that very chilly start: a lot of sunshine. then on sunday a chance of a couple of showers. remember, we turn the clocks back and we get an extra hour of sleep and the rain chance mainly to the south on monday and then temperatures start going back into the 70s. we'll be right back.
