9:41 am
burbs here. so pumping the temperature up to about 66. 68 in south jersey. 67 in the lehigh valley and close to 70 in delaware. we need the sunshine for sure. a lot of folks are waiting on the sunshine. stay tuned. i'll let you know when we can expect it. today president obama toured the globe theater in london. the theater is a replica of the circular open-air playhouse that william shakespeare designed in 1859. the tour came on the 400th anniversary of shakespeare's death. if you got to meet the president and first lady, what would you wear? a tux? fancy dress? not your pajamas. that's what the future king of england decided on. 2-year-old prince george was already dressed in his pjs and robe when he was given a bedtime

9:45 am
good morning. i'm meteorologist karen thomas. we'll go ahead and take a last look at our neighborhood forecast. first we'll start with temperatures in and around philadelphia. 61 in philly right now. lehigh valley 60. 58 in the burbs. 60 in delaware. closer in, we'll show you where we are in south jersey with temperature readings still on the mild side. we saw a bit of temperature cooloff, if you will, north and west of philadelphia because of the rain-maker pushing through. but we're still seeing temperatures holding fairly steady in the mid to lower 60s in and around south jersey. we move further north. still in the 60s.
9:46 am
60 in princeton right now. 62 degrees in pem perton. 64 in coyle field. scattered showers the weather story and rain too. some of it heavy, moving through the area at this hour. radar showing us just where the system is. as you can see, there really isn't much rain behind it, but as we move closer to philadelphia we can easily see that the large area of rain is here. we can also see that a good portion of the front, the precipitation anyway, has already moved off the coast. there is still the residual rain just behind it. we zoom in and show you just where the rain is. you can see allentown, showers moving through. trenton, moving through. it's raining in philadelphia as well. and so there is a heavier cell right here just pushing out of southern chester county. that will be making its way into western delaware county. hang on to the umbrellas as we
9:47 am
move through the early part of our saturday anyway. future cast showing us that by 12:30 another area of rain is possible, moving right on through philadelphia and trenton. it's a cold front. you can see it's just pushing down here, laying straight down to the southeast. so, by 3:30 we still have residual shower left over along the shoreline before the entire system gets out of here by this evening. but the drying should happen from west to east. so areas west of philadelphia would be drying out quicker than along the shoreline. here is what we're looking at for today in south philadelphia. 70 degrees. we've got a little bit of everything. hopefully we'll get the peeks of sunshine later on today. out in the burbs it's looking like mainly rain as that system just sort of lags and lingering showers in the lehigh valley as well. we'll go ahead and show you south jersey. temperatures today 69 in
