5:19 pm
fist half of the weekend dry, but look at the wet weather off to the west. this is the rain we're watching as we go into sunday. right now, this is very heavy rain, but as it gets closer, we're going to see that turn into a very large area of widespread rain and temperatures will be cool too. here's future weather, so we go through tonight, and maybe a few sprinkles in the raer, but overall, mostly dry. then for your saturday, this is the dry day out of the weekend, so saturday, by the afternoon, mostly cloudy, and i think we'll have breaks of sunshine here and there. low 60s, so a nice day. then there you see it, saturday night, the rain approaches from the west. then it'll be moving in for sunday morning. here's sunday, 8:00 in the morning. that's right the broad cross blue street run starts. the yellows and oranges indicates heavy rainfall. the thing is, these computer models have been showing this timing with pretty heavy rain over the past couple days now. it looks consistent. i think at this point we can say there's a sure bet we'll have
5:20 pm
rain, potentially heavy move through during the blue cross run. by 11:00 a.m. sunday, rain is around, and afternoon it clears up more and more come back into monday. look at the rain totals, saturday dry, sunday, though, up to an inch of rain as we go through the afternoon in some areas with the heavier amounts, so, again, we cannot rule out the heavy rain especially early sunday morning. tomorrow's forecast, though, looking better. this is your saturday forecast. lehigh valley, reading at 61 degrees, cloudy. pennsylvania suburbs like westchester, low 60s, and mostly cloudy, but peeks of sun. 61 tomorrow, 62, and in, areas like trenton, 61 for a high, and mostly cloudy, and along the shore, mostly the mid-50s for atlantic city and avlon, and if
5:21 pm
you're in delaware, closer to mid-50s too. dover 61 degrees, and 62 in wilmington. that's the dry day of the weekend. then we go into sunday. the blue cross broad street run forecast, 8:00 in the morning, rain likely. 49 degrees. i think even by 8:00 a.m., some of that rain could be potentially heavy. 10:00 by the time the race winds down, we'll see the rain around. it's going to be continue yous as we go through the morning hours. by noon sunday, we could still be seeing heavy rain around, but i think we'll still see consistent rainfall by then, so sunday is beginning to be a rainy day. a look at the exclusive ten-day forecast. when you compare tomorrow to sunday, clearly, we have a better day out of weekend tomorrow to get your outdoor plans done, and then we go into the middle of next week to 70 degrees, seeing more in the way of dry conditions and rain chances come back by the end of next week. see all the way to the following
