steve smith and his family winning the lottery is proof that good things can happen to good people. now your nbc10 first alert weather. >> all right. taking a look at a good forecast. we're starting out with a great forecast anyway. temperatures mainly in the 50s. cooler up here in the burbs. 48 degrees here with a few clouds around. for the most part we are seeing sunshine, and that will be the ticket for our morning hours before the clouds roll in. so temperatures across the pennsylvania suburbs, mainly in the mid 50s, mainly. a little cooler right now in chadsford. collegeville 47, chadsford 49 degrees. in north wales, 47. fort washington, 47 degrees. if you're headed out early this morning, all you'll need is maybe a light jacket as the numbers will be ticking upward.

pushing into philadelphia and parts of delaware. so, again, it's going to move quickly from west to east. but you can see the yellow and the orange embedded in the system there, and so we could have some downpours. we could even have some rumbles of thunder and lightning as the storm kicks up and gains strength as it moves closer to our area. by 10:00 it's all but out of here. around the coast we have shower activity in jersey and parts of south jersey. clouds stay with us. future tracker takes us into early tomorrow morning. we wake up with clouds but should be dry in and around philadelphia. north and west, though, very cold conditions, turning some precipitation into light snow in the farthest northwestern part of the state. we should stay dry with the potential of a light shower tomorrow night north and west of

behind the system as well. as the cold front makes its way through later this afternoon. we do anticipate clouds to thicken up as we get midday through our saturday because that will be the leading edge of the system. so clouds out front of that. and then the rain behind it. as i mentioned, there is potential for a thunderstorm or two as that system makes its way through later on today. then we turn gusty and windy beyond that. so 5:30. futurecast, put it into motion, you can see the leading edge of the cold front making its way into the area. so we could see some popup shower activity before 5:30, just out front of that system. but the bulk of it moving through later in the day towards the evening hour. then futurecast tells us by 10:30 tonight the system moves quickly off the coast. residual shower along the shore line, a possibility through the nighttime hours. overnight we should be drying out. and then by 8:00 tomorrow morning the cold northwesterly

clouds thicken, and then that front comes through later on and could bring us a thunderstorm. 73 degrees. winds will be picking up overnight into early tomorrow, bringing in the really cold air from the northwest. 61 degrees for a high temperature tomorrow. sunshine on monday, looking pretty nice at 64. still a little cooler than where we should be this time of year. we want to feel like spring. on tuesday, we get a very active pattern coming back as we have got some cold fronts moving through. tuesday, another one coming in on wednesday. temperatures stay in the upper 60s. we'll stretch it through thursday. we bump in temperatures. you see this. we'll actually be above where we should be this time of year, which i am not going to complain about. but again, hang onto the umbrellas as we get a chance for a shower or two on thursday. rosemary. thanks, karen. 6:49 on this saturday a few minutes before the start of the "today" show at 7:00. philadelphia's own kristen welker and jeff rossen join us
