degrees, the wind is very light, it's five degrees warmer than it was at this time yesterday, and the records we had monday and tuesday, somewhat cooler wednesday, warmer today, despite the rain, and then 49 degrees during the day tomorrow. then even colder on saturday. right now we are in the low 50s. the wind is light and kind of variable. arrows going every which direction. 50 degrees one of the cool spots and 57 and over towards the show it's pretty warm. 61 atlantic city airport, 60 in woodbine. when it's raining like that to be that mild this time of the year is unusual. there is colder air back to the west. not bitterly cold, but at least cold. and as that comes in on saturday we'll definitely notice that. there's the radar and you can see the rain ending from west to east across the area.
the heaviest rain right now in portions of montgomery county, another little patch right near south philly, but we're going to be seeing some very rapid changes here, especially already happening in chester county, western percents of chester county, already seeing that rain shut off. on the wider view you can see it, too. this is just three hours worth of radar and it is just racing to the east finally. and that's going to set us up for some drier weather. now as we go through the night tonight, the clouds start to move out, we get sunshine, especially north and west during the day tomorrow. we go from clouds to sunshine, northwest winds come in, breezy day, and, of course, it's colder. but when you add the wind to what we're seeing coming up on saturday, it's going to feel like i'm at 18 in reading. wind chill by saturday morning, 22 degrees in philadelphia, and
even later in the morning, midday hours it's still feeling like it's in the 20s in some areas to the north and west. so as we go through the night tonight, the rain ends early, the clouds will be lingering. 44 degrees for the low in philadelphia and 40 north and west. it's not all that cold by morning, and then as we go through the day tomorrow, we have clouds giving way to sunshine. it's going to be breezy, it's going to be colder than today, but we're not talking about really cold for this time of the year, so that is really going to be the interesting thing about the weather over the next 24 hours. and then as we go towards the seven day forecast, you're going to be seeing the eagles playing in kind of chilly weather, but then it really warms up next week, and by christmas eve, i'm predicting a record of 70 degrees. >> wow. a local law firm arranged a

tell us some renters could lose their homes. >> they may have to leave if there's no rental license on the property. >> reporter: okay, what do you do if you want to make sure the place you're renting is safe? you can ask your landlord to see a rental license, or go to your government building and ask to see the license. ask for reid and her daughter, they have moved out of the apartment they are renting and now staying in motels. for the investigators, harry hairston, nbc 10 news. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> and we are tracking rain moving across the area. shopping has been a soggy experience at the king of prussia mall today. switching to a live picture of the center city skyline where you can see the thick clouds creeping in and rain will be a big factor into the evening commute. >> glenn "hurricane" schwartz is back and tracking the rain for us. glenn? >> yeah, and the conditions are a lot worse now than they are going to be toward the end of the afternoon rush.
