let's see what it's doing at the shore. the northeast wind continues. there's no way the temperature can go up very much in the cool spot, 49 degrees at cape may point from our weather extension, our weather observers. partly courtesy of the partners at weather underground. you can see your seven-day forecast on the screen all the time. you don't have to wait until the end of the forecast, and it's not just for philadelphia anymore. the big story for everybody, of course, is the wet pattern along with the chilly pattern. here we are, 1:00. it's a solid area of rain moving through. so keep the umbrellas handy, no matter where you're going and where you are. it's going to be raining this afternoon. here it is at 3:30. there's more coming in. this evening, 8:00, may start to taper off some overnight, but it may just go from steady rain to some drizzle. there's friday, 6:00 a.m. again, it's cloudy.
it's damp. we have some sprinkles or drizzle around. and then more rain comes in for the afternoon. and into friday night. it's one disturbance after another. this will move out, and we may see some improvement on saturday. but it's going to be hard to get the clouds out of there until the wind direction changes. it's coming out of the east or northeast. as long as the wind direction is there, the clouds will probably stay there as well. here's the live radar. and we have some decent rain in the southern portion of delaware already. nothing in wilmington, up to philadelphia, or even atlantic city, but it's on its way, and like i say, some of this is on the heavy side around milford and down toward seifert. and that will continue to move to the east. and there's a big batch right around baltimore that's moving right up toward delaware and the philadelphia area. so it's not just going to be light rain this afternoon and
tonight. here's the story, the temperatures fairly uniform, library at 59. phoenixville, 57. 56 in bethlehem. that's the way it is today. avalon, 53. atlantic city holding at 52 degrees. does it get any better? not tomorrow. only 53, philadelphia. saturday is cloudy. 61 degrees. saturday, we may see dry weather for at least a day. there is a chance that some rain will move in by saturday night. look at the temperature up a little bit on saturday. if we get a little bit of sunshine, at least through the high clouds. with the advance of that rain, you can see the temperatures down to 49 degrees. in the jersey shore tomorrow, saturday, 58 degrees. more rain in the forecast. i'll be back with the ten-day forecast a little later.

well, around here, the wind is eroding our temperatures. it's coming in off the ocean. moisture is here. and until the wind direction changes, going to stay this way. we're in the 50s everywhere, 55 in philadelphia. 51, p.a. suburbs. 54, new jersey, 55, lehigh valley. 54 in delaware. and as you can see, as we go through the day, we're not seeing sunshine. we've got rain come in. and staying in. so you need the umbrellas all day once the rain starts. the seven-day forecast scrolling below, for many different areas, not just philadelphia anymore. and you don't have to wait until the end of the weather to get your seven-day. you can see it any time.
let's head to south jersey and see if we have temperatures other than the 50s. and the answer is no. we still don't have much above let's say 56 degrees in medford. those are the warmest spots. vineland at 55 degrees. millville only 53. 56 in robbinsville. 55 in hopewell township. 55 in lumberton. so again, temperatures uniform, because of the clouds and the east wind. so let's take a look at the radar. you can see the skyline right now, but as the rain continues to progress and get in here in the philadelphia area, it's just within the next hour, not probably going to be seeing much. let's see what's behind that. not much. so the heaviest of the rain is going to come through this afternoon. we may see a little bit of tapering during the night tonight. and this live radar shows it's
just where the heaviest rain is and also the leading edge of the rain. that is on the doorstep. just about to wilmington here, and close to the philadelphia area, coming into south jersey as well. now, what's going to happen in the future? it's going to rain some more. here's the futurecast. we go through the afternoon. patches of rain coming through. now, we're going to be seeing this light rain and drizzle during the night. and into the morning. so we're not going to see a whole lot on the radar here later on during the night. but we've got more coming in tomorrow. as you can see, not necessarily all that heavy, but it's just a nuisance. it's inconvenient, and there's friday night. and we still have more coming here. now, because another area of rain may move in quicker than we thought earlier, there is a
chance of rain for the blue cross broad street run here. at 8:00, start of the race, most likely to be dry. but there's still a chance. and then some rain at 10:00 a.m. and heavier rain at noon. so at least it's cool and cloudy for the runners, because they may at least be comfortable with that. and then after that, look at that. 56 degrees for the high on sunday. 61, monday. we still have that threat of rain. tuesday, we start to dry out a little bit, but it doesn't stay that way. we have showers in the forecast through many of the next ten days. we'll be right back.
