well, we've had gusty winds, hour after hour after hour. from yesterday afternoon till right now. we've got a cold night ahead. the coldest night of the week once the winds die down of it but the 70s are going to be returning fairly quickly after this. then we're tracking rain that comes with the 70-degree temperatures. well, still fairly windy out there, 22, gusting to 33 miles an hour. 57 degrees, so it's a cooler breeze than yesterday when we got up to 70. it's 53 in allentown, pottstown and trenton right now, 54 in lancaster, and in reading. 55 in westchester and glassboro and mount holly. 57 in dover, millville and atlantic city. you can see temperatures fairly uniform when we have a lot of
wind. as the wind dies down the temperature's going to go down as we go toward 7:00 a.m. down to 32 degrees in philadelphia itself and in the 20s in many of the suburbs. so, that's going to be a cold night. we've got to get this wind to die down first. it's gusting to 37 miles an hour in mount pocono. some of the gusts now below 25 miles an hour. which we haven't seen so far today. so it is a sign of things to come. and the wind is going to be bringing in the warmer air. not so much tomorrow, that 56 in cincinnati tells you that. but farther to the west it's warmer, in the 70s. and little rock and dallas and that air is headed this way. that's why we've got temperatures in the 70s for a couple of days. it's been sunny but chilly, the closest moisture moving this way is not until you get to iowa. so we're a long way from seeing some rain here. as we go through the night
tonight, into tomorrow, into tomorrow night it's pretty clear. then by thursday morning we start to see at least some clouds through thursday afternoon, still dry. i don't expect any rain until thursday night when we get showers coming through. as you can see. and then on friday we may see more hours of rain, some of it on the heavier side. possible thunderstorms and then we get another round of wind as we go into saturday and sunday with colder air coming back in. clear, much colder overnight. 34 for the low in philadelphia, 24 in some of the north and western suburbs, millville, new jersey may be one of those spots too. sunny with much less wind during the day tomorrow. the high temperature only near 60 degrees, very light wind in the morning. practically calm. and then increasing to 10 to 15 miles an hour in the afternoon.
warmer air. temperature near 60 tomorrow, but in the 70s on thursday. a warm night thursday night as the showers come in, the temperature only drops to 62. so it's not that far of a jump to get to 73 on friday even with the rain and thunderstorms. then a little bit cooler on saturday with the wind and a lot colder on sunday. and it stays cold monday and tuesday as well. >> i'm danny pommells. the flyers continue their grueling stretch. we'll hear from the coach and nova gets set for one of the best players in the country. when you think about success, what does it look like? is it becoming a better professor by being a more adventurous student? is it one day giving your daughter the opportunity she deserves?
the flyers in the midst of a grueling stretch, one that they hope ends with a playoff berth. they are tied with the red wings for the second and final wild card spot in the east. after surrendering a two-goal lead last night. they won in overtime on this claude giroux goal. next up the washington capitals tomorrow night at home. the caps clinched the best record in hockey. but coach says beware. >> i'm not too worried about the caps. they have a tremendous season. we always have a pretty introspective look. we're worried about ourselves and taking care of ourselves and getting ourselves ready and prepared and we'll do that. it's a big challenge, a big test against a great team but again, we'll worry about ourselves and be ready to play. >> villanova is counting down
the days until they face off with oklahoma in the final four in houston saturday night. this will be the rematch of the game villanova will likely want to forget. oklahoma blew the wildcats out of the building in the early part of the season. buddy hield taken the tournament by storm and the cats know what they are up against. >> you have someone who can shoot the lights out but at the same time athletic enough to get to the rim it's a tough guard because you have to play him so tough, so close. >> he is unbelievable. he's going to be tough to guard. he works for all of the shots. it's not like he's making easy shots. people know he is the best player on the floor. >> closer to home drexel announced their new basketball coach today. the school hired former army coach zach spiker. he replaces the recently let go coach. opening day for the phillies six
days away. today one of the final clear water tune-ups against the yankees. bad weather in clearwater. the rain was pouring down but the teams played. spring kind of -- serves up one, three-one. bottom one, knocks to left. brings in a run. that's all for the phillies, they lose 7-1 in the four-inning game. back to you guys. >> i'm sure they were glad to get that over with. now for a look what's coming up tonight. bound and beaten, a 92-year-old woman's horror inside her home. that story at 11:00. stopped their perks and pushed for reform. as head of pennsylvania's third-largest county, i cut out wall street middlemen to protect pensions, stood up for marriage equality and protected our environment.
