afternoon 59 degrees. high temperatures no problem getting into the 60s. even in those areas that saw the colder readings first thing this morning. pennsylvania suburbs and south jersey. the exception is the jersey shore, we're still seeing easterly wind just like we've had over the last couple days keeping things cooler there. as far as the temperatures, well, they got plenty cold. in fact, frosty in the pennsylvania suburbs. you can see we've warmed into the 50s right now, but there's a few cool spots in the low 50s in phoenixville, but not far away st. david's is 60 degrees and look at bensalem, 57 and climbing. the forecast hour by hour, neighborhood by neighborhood for philadelphia 62 at 2:00, then 65 degrees by 6:00. we will warm in the pennsylvania suburbs into the very low 60s, but a quick cooldown. we'll still have some cool nights heading into the weekend. at 10:00, 50 degrees. for the lehigh valley 63 degrees at 2:00. and by 10:00 this evening we'll be in the 40s.

the dispensaries have to be up and running for patients to get their medical marijuana prescriptions filled. that will mostly happen one to two years from now. now, under the law medical marijuana will only be available in pills, in oil and topical gels. patients who have cancer, multiple sclerosis or other debilitating diseases are eligible. the quest for the cup. >> to the one time -- >> the quest for the cup starts with a loss. the flyers fell 2-0 to the capitals in the playoff opener in washington. game two is in washington tomorrow night. the flyers came into the contest with heavy hearts. it was their first game since the death of founder and chairman ed snider. the game got started with a tribute to flyers founder ed snider who died earlier this week. the players wore his initials on their jerseys, on their sleeves. fans at the official philadelphia watch party at xfinity live appreciated that

look at lincoln at 54 and lewis now 51 degrees. we'll see temperatures climb into the 50s and 60s across our area. it's part of a warmup that's going to take us right through the weekend. the warmup coming from high pressure in control. sending the jet stream way to the north and keeping not only the weekend warm but also levels of pollen high. it comes with this time of year a nice warmup. oak is the highest. and the forecast for oak is to continue on the high zone. we will see that peak over the next few days. neighborhood by neighborhood forecasts for today, somerton 63 degrees this afternoon. look at the 60s for the pennsylvania suburbs. low 60s there. this is why we detail neighborhood by neighborhood. you'll find variation in the bethlehem area, the lehigh valley 65 degrees this afternoon. but the greatest contrast which we've seen the last few days is at the jersey shore with temperatures in the 50s. 55 in wilmington. wildwood and atlantic city will
be the high temperature. meantime wilmington will warm into the middle 60s. you'll see low 60s for haddenfield and for glassboro today. looking ahead, the weekend couldn't be sunnier or warmer. look at the warming trend. for philadelphia, the pennsylvania suburbs, delaware, lehigh valley all into the 60s starting tomorrow. but those easterly winds will continue at the jersey shore. so even though the temperature will be warming over the weekend, still cooler at the shore. 70 degrees on monday. philadelphia, south jersey and delaware reach 80 degrees on monday afternoon. so some sweet weather ahead. and it is going to continue. this is our exclusive ten-day outlook 60s today and tomorrow 72 on sunday and there's your 80 degrees on monday. it will get a little bit cooler on tuesday, but that's still warm for this time of the year. and that's a one-day cool down into the 60s. by wednesday and thursday we're back into the 70s, maybe seeing 80 degree pop up in parts of the
area on thursday. there is a slight chance of some showers on friday, otherwise it's going to be dry. even next weekend. so we've got two weekends for you to see this weekend 60s and 70s, the following weekend into the upper 70s. perfect weather for the cherry blossom festival that is happening this weekend. little cool to start with, but the 5k and 10k race starts tomorrow morning at 7:30. so you want it on the cool side for the race. sunshine and 64 in the afternoon. and into the 70s on sunday. tempted to race, vai? >> yes. race -- >> somehow i don't believe you. >> yeah. no, i run. all right. thank you, bill, i think. hey, when others run out, they run in. firefighters are true heroes in the community, but did you know many of these lifesavers are volunteers? there's a new push under way in our area to get more men and women to join their ranks. the details are just ahead.
this is national volunteer week. and there's a good chance that the firefighters working to protect and serve your community are volunteers. and right now there's a big push to recruit volunteer firefighters throughout our area. and there's a great need here in lower merion. chief tom hayden and volunteer firefighter harry jarn are with merion fire company of ardmore. thank you for being here.
chief, start with you. do you think people would be surprised at how many companies need or rely on volunteers throughout the area? >> yeah, the greater part of the region relies on volunteers or some of the stations are a combination. but in our area of lower merion about 90% of the people that arrive are the volunteers. and we're augmented with small career staff. >> and you're a volunteer? >> yes, i am. >> tell me how you did that? >> i kind of signed up on a whim. i'd been looking for something maybe to do with the military, some way to serve my community and i came across the firehouse. i grew up in lower merion and i never understood that most of the firefighters in lower merion were volunteers. >> tell me about the need for volunteers specifically to this area. >> of course. >> you guys were telling me something interesting. you guys actually cover this studio, the studio we're in right now. >> that's right. >> yeah. >> it's not just a problem in lower merion. it's a regional problem, it's
also a national problem. about 70% of the volunteers in the united states are volunteers. and everywhere is hurting. times have changed. it's a little harder for people to run out during the day to leave their businesses and serve the community as firefighters. so it's a staffing problem not just here in lower merion, but everywhere. >> chief, fire companies really do much more than just fight fires, right? >> we're an integral part of the community. we're out there with the public safety education as well as providing the fire protection for our towns. >> tell me about some of the jobs you perform and some of the time commitment that's required of your job. >> okay. well, our volunteers we train about one night a week. and in our particular station we have calls really about average one a day. so the commitment of the volunteer is to try to make about 25% of those calls. >> harry, tell me about some of
the training that you got as a volunteer and what would be required if somebody wants to volunteer, and the time commitment that's required. >> sure. i'm headed in to put an hour figure on it might sound kind of daunting. but if it's something you find you really love, you're going to make time for it. you're going to find time in your schedule to commit to this. as tom said we have a training night once a week. our station it's monday night. some other stations might be another weeknight. in addition our department sends everyone through the montgomery county fire academy in conshohocken. it's about a 180-hour certification program. and we have various other training seminars and opportunities. >> start the interview segment by thanking the work that you do, but i would be remiss if i let you go before doing that. we appreciate everything you and other firefighters do to protect us. for more information, head to our website at nbc10.com or check out the nbc 10 app. chief, thank you very much.
