reporting in wilmington, nbc 10 news. the new jersey department of education will hold hearings this week to answer the question, does the school day start too early? parents, teachers and students will get to weigh in on the possibility of moving that start time to 8:30 a.m. or later. the first meeting is tomorrow from 4:00 to 7:00 at can yan county colleges campus. make sure the kids grab their rain gear tomorrow. we're tracking the weather where you live. for that, let's turn to meteorologist car ren thomas. karen? >> all right, denise. a little bit of everything. temperatures right now on the chilly side. it's 51 degrees in philadelphia. cooler up there in allentown and same here in trenton and 49 degrees in atlantic city. we have an onshore flow, northeasterly wind that continues to come in off of the cool ocean. winds not doing too badly but
this onshore flow will continue and keep the clouds in place overnight. we're watching radar right now because here's another system that is developing. it is fragmented but it has convection in here. it's just pushing into the d.c. and baltimore area and we'll continue to move west to east. parts of delaware, parts of south jersey, even this pocket of southeastern p.a. could get some isolated shower activity, maybe even some rumbles of thunder through the next couple of hours, through the overnight hours into early tomorrow as that system makes its way even closer. for most of the viewing area, we are dry right now but you can see the specks of green. so very isolated, very isolated sort of scattered shower activity is going to be through the overnight hours and waking up early tomorrow. we're watching yet another low pressure system. it's a very active pattern across the entire united states but we're watching another low developing here in the gulf and that will be running up the cold
front tomorrow. tomorrow is really going to be a mixed bag. we'll start out drizzling and isolated showers and then peaks of sunshine and rain comes back into the picture. starting at 7:30, we see here this particular model showing us we could start out with shower activity in and around philadelphia, wilmington, dover and cutting over to south jersey. that's why we say to have the umbrellas handy but then drying out for the afternoon. the clouds start to dissipate coming from the south up to the north. not everybody will see sunshine but as the clouds begin to clear south to north, we could get that heating going on with the sunshine. and then futurecast showing us tomorrow night another round of spotty showers and a better shot of convection tomorrow night into tuesday morning with that. so lightning and thunder is a potential as this system comes
on through. this is 6:30 through tuesday morning, widespread rain for most of the viewing area. that would be tuesday morning and then we look to wednesday to finally dry out. we could bump to 72 degrees for a high temperature tomorrow. you can see the icon giving us the mixed bag. just have the umbrellas handy. it isn't until wednesday that we get out of this active weather pattern and we start to dry out. temperatures in the mid-to upper 60s tomorrow. as i said, we could warm up especially if we get those sustained peeks of sunshine throughout the afternoon. comcast sports net, the phillies were expected to be bottom feeders this season but they are making believers out of so many. and hear from howie himself in this exclusive conversation with john clark.
dear fellow citizen, time spent with my son really makes me appreciate "the now". but i also have to plan for my family's future. and that means taking on debt. in a smart way. like my mortgage - it's working for me. and if he needs a college loan down the road, that'll be worth it too. it's all about having a strategy, that fits your life. so, if you have a question about how to make debt work for you, ask me. sincerely, brandon heaven fellow dad and fellow citizen.
about how to make debt work for you, ask me. when you want itchy, watery eyes and sneezes out of the picture, you go to walgreens for flonase allergy relief- over the counter in full prescription strength. with walgreens right around the corner, it's easy to get more complete relief in a flash. how's that for picture perfect? well... "perfect" might be a slight exaggeration. swing by walgreens for flonase that helps block six allergic substances, not just one. walgreens. at the corner of happy and healthy.
rocking the jackets to stay warm, touches home and phils up 1-0. keeping the tribe off the board, the phils win it and they are rolling. >> we've always had confidence in one another, especially the team. you about for us to do what we are doing right now, we're surprising a lot of people and i think that's what we expected to do from day one. now our confidence is as high as it gets and we're playing well. >> following the '09 season, the eagles have gone through a litany of starting quarterbacks. now they are hoping that carson holds down the fort for years to come. >> the philadelphia eagles pick
carson wentz. [ applause ] >> wentz giving them something to cheer about. the qb is looking good in the midnight green. our john clark sat down with the move that the team has made all season. >> do you think you're doing the best job to try to win this season but also look towards the future? >> yeah. i think for us it goes back to one thing. we have to have a high-low play for the quarterback position, in the short term and long term. we have to have a high/low point from that position and until we do, we're not going to be able to compete on a regular basis, for us to just kind of compete and be in the middle of the pack, that's not what our fans want or what we want. you have to take some risk and chances. we understand the gravity of this move. but i think that as our fans get to see, they will understand why we wanted to bet on this particular player. >> do you believe that it is
more the agent that wants to have the trade go through or sam that is requested the trade? >> i think people see opportunities, you know. and i think prior to the draft, maybe there's some opportunity that you see that may make sense and we understand that this is a business. it's never personal and by the same token, we feel the same way about him. you know, we're not going to hold any of this against him. we move forward and there's great incentive for all of us to go out and play great. >> and i know you haven't had enough. hear much more of the conversation on "eagles blueprint" right here on nbc 10. john clark is your host coming up in just a few minutes. well, the draft always filled with emotion. this was will parks on saturday. he's a germantown high graduate soon to be an arizona graduate and he was drafted in the sixth round by the denver broncos. so he's going to the super bowl champs after hearing his name called. those emotions are awesome. that is your look at sports.
the eagles get their man! >> carson wentz! [cheers and applause ] >> one player can change your team. >> bottom line is, if you don't have a franchise quarterback in the nfl, it doesn't matter. the eagles coach now has his quarterback. >> a little bit of brett favre. honestly. >> a whirlwind start to wentz's career and why the eagles felt so compelled to get him and the details of the draft. "eagles blueprint 2016" is on the clock.
