the lehigh valley. this has heavier shower activity in it. as we go through the overnight hours expect more showers to roll through. some will be lingering as we go into tomorrow morning. a live look right now just some very light rain across new jersey and delaware. the overall motion is very skalterred but it's moving mainly from west to east. so again, we'll see it linger through the morning hours tomorrow and some of you will possibly see it into the afternoon. but that's mostly new jersey and delaware. so take a look what future weather does. as we go through the next couple of hours we will still keep the rain around. if you are still going to be out tonight or early tomorrow morning, if you're waking up and walking out, we're still going to be seeing this wet pattern in place. 7:30 tomorrow morning. cloudy, possibly some light showers even north and west of philadelphia. that will be lingering in new jersey and delaware, even by 10:00 a.m. not everyone at 10:00 a.m. will see the rain. i think north and west of philadelphia well see more clearing. saturday afternoon. more clearing through the poconos into philadelphia.
but then look at the shore and parts of delaware. we could still be seeing rain lingering, not until later in the day saturday and saturday night does the shore finally start to clear out. for tomorrow though, the forecast with your neighborhoods starting with the lehigh valley, redding high, 67 degrees. mid 60s, bethlehem. 66 in easton. closer to philadelphia as we get into the pennsylvania suburbs newtown, west chester could see light rain. upper 60s. philadelphia area and the neighborhoods like mount airy could see early la rain lingeri. low 70s. new jersey, better chance for rain tomorrow. temperatures in south jersey like trenton, glassboro, low 70s. also along the shore, early morning rain could last into the afternoon. atlantic city, 62 degrees. tomorrow, avalon coming in around 68 degrees. for delaware upper 60s to 70 degrees. rain around as we go through the afternoon as well. going into the weekend it's really just saturday we're going to see the lingering rain.
