at gettysburg with the 149th pennsylvania bucktails and he was shot in the head and lived to tell about it. which is unheard of back then. >> wow. phenomenal. quite amazing, history and story. the 27th annual civil war re-enactment happening this saturday and sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for more information, head to our website. we'll have a link at nbc10.com or check out the nt nbc10 app. thank you for coming and giving us a little information and knowledge. >> well, another sunny start to a sunny and pretty warm day. we're already close to the average high temperature for this time of the year. everywhere except right at the shore, like we just showed you a little while ago. let's go to delaware now, and see how it's warming up. wow, 67 degrees in marshalltown,
11:51 am
and 69 in glasgow, reedy point at 68 degrees. already 70 at lincoln. and in lewes, delaware, they get the winds off the bay, and sometimes they're the coldest spot, but not today. well, we have quiet, dry conditions now. but it's not going to stay that way. the radar shows that the rain continues to approach from the west, into western pennsylvania. and the futurecast shows that it's going to be headed this way. but just clouds this afternoon. an isolated shower possible this evening. most if not all of the rain comes after the morning rush tomorrow. that's 11:30 in the morning. there's one of your first showers. we don't see anything widespread or heavy until later. here's the afternoon rush. 5:30, it's starting to get a little closer, coming into
11:52 am
chester county. and then, that's pretty heavy stuff. at 7:00, tomorrow night, that's heavy enough to potentially be showers and thunderstorms. but they move through. it's much needed rain. it will wash some of the pollen out of the air, but not everywhere. this is not one of those rains where everybody gets it. so is a problem. now, we have the rain totals out of the same computer model. nothing by 9:00 a.m. friday. by friday evening, not much at all. but by saturday morning, it's a different story. it's about a half inch. a little more north and west. a little less to the south and east. but some of that rain might linger at the shore all the way into saturday morning. so the forecast, 80 degrees tomorrow in philadelphia with the showers and storms. not quite as warm in other portions of the area. and you can see even at the

11:53 am
jersey shore tomorrow, it's going to be warm because there will be more of a west wind and the showers may linger in south jersey, jersey shore, and delaware, into at least saturday morning. so that's the one thing that we're concerned about. we'll update this, of course, this afternoon. your own seven-day forecast, of course, at the bottom of the screen here. constantly, and not the philadelphia. this is the philadelphia ten-day that we have just debuted in the past week. and you can see that we have some chances of rain tuesday, wednesday, and thursday of next week. it's not a dry pattern anymore. we'll be right back. modres: the cost of living the pay stays the same. i have to work extra hours just to make ends meet. it's a big struggle.
