now your "nbc 10" first alert neighborhood weather with chief meteorologist glenn hurricane schwartz. >> he was about to say how happy he is that the sun is finally out in new york. that's true there, it's true in philadelphia. washington, d.c., still kind of waiting a little bit. 69 degrees in philadelphia already with at least partly sunny skies. been a while since we've been able to say that. we've had sunshine in much of south jersey. even northern delaware getting sunshine. the showers have moved down even south of washington, but there's more moisture off shore and some of that could be moving our way and that will be changing things as we go into the rest of the day. now we see temperatures going up near 80 degrees tomorrow near reading. bethlehem 75.
easton, 78. it's going to be a little bit lower chance of any kind of showers tomorrow than what we're seeing today. phoenixville at 76 degrees and byberry at 79. fairmount, 80. closing in on the 80 degree mark. you can see your seven day on the bottom of the screen. glassboro, 78 degrees. at the jersey shore we're not likely to get to 80 degrees but we may get to the 70s. it's been in the 50s over the last several days. dover, 78 degrees tomorrow. may actually get a day without seeing any kind of showers around here. we're going to be seeing temperatures not only near 70 but, like i said, near 80 degrees later on during the day tomorrow. we have sunshine out there and the sun is going to be in and out during the afternoon down to the south more sunshine up to
the north and that will be the case today. you can see just a couple little showers left over in parts of delaware but it's very, very light at the moment. you see thunderstorms off shore so the atmosphere is primed to get some showers and storms and let's take a look at what the future cast is saying. 3:00 this afternoon you can see the potential area of showers and heavy thunderstorms across much of the philadelphia area. so not everybody is going to get rained on this afternoon, that's for sure, but there will be some showers and storms, could be some briefly heavy rain and gusty winds, maybe even a little bit of hail in some of these and then things quiet down as we get into tomorrow. then we're going to be seeing temperatures going into the 80 degree range. that is going to be nothing compared to what we see later on during the week.
sunshine on wednesday. near 90 degrees on thursday. friday, chance of showers and storms as we start the memorial day weekend, but at the very least it looks like it's going to be warm. it's going to be nothing like this past weekend has been. temperatures way above average. the average is 76, 77 degrees and we think we're going to be at least close to 80 if not into the 80s for much of the next ten days. we'll be right back.
coming up this afternoon starting at 3:00, it's an all new "ellen" with "the voice" star blake shelton who talks about his new romance with gwen stefani. help wanted at the jersey shore. a push to fill jobs ahead of memorial day weekend.

while left unrestrained by a seat belt. nero was one of six officers charged in the case. stay with "nbc 10" and the "nbc 10" app for updates on this breaking news. time now to turn to chief meteorologist glenn hurricane schwartz for a quick look at the weather this afternoon. >> yeah, a whole lot better than what we saw over the weekend. it was only 62 degrees on saturday. 66 yesterday. we're going about 10 degrees above that today, but we will see at least some scattered showers and storms developing during the afternoon. you can follow them on your "nbc 10" app wherever you are. then tomorrow we're up near 80 degrees. by thursday we're up near 90 as we head into the memorial day weekend. i'm sure a lot of people were afraid of this cold, wet, cloudy weather that we've seen much of may was going to last into this weekend, but it looks like it isn't. >> memorial day is a key weekend. thank you, glenn. thanks for watching "nbc 10
