and so northern delaware is pretty hot. southern delaware's hot too. millsboro at 89 degrees. as you get to the beaches, it's not so hot. it's 80 in bethany beach, but 69 in dewey beach. wind from the cooler ocean. you can see what a tremendous impact it is. louis is 85 degrees. so we're going to have those differences during the day tomorrow. that's why we do this neighborhood weather forecast because sometimes you can get huge differences over small areas. it's hot. it's more humid than it has been. remember, less than a week ago it was 62 degrees for the high temperature. we've gone up every single day. yesterday, we got up to 90. we expect to be around 90 today or maybe even a little bit higher, and then the memorial
day weekend, the trend does not continue through the weekend. it is going to be hot on saturday. that's going to be the hottest day, generally, the sunniest day, lowest chance of any kind of rain, and that's true just about everywhere. we do have a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm in the lehigh valley, but it's hot at 91 degrees. jersey shore at 76. right at the beaches, of course, it'll be much warmer inland, but expect a nice sunny day. ocean, of course, is cold. and then on sunday, down to 73. the clouds increase during the afternoon, and we get a chance of rain. and then rain becomes pretty likely on monday. all through the areas, as you can see, knocking the temperatures down. philadelphia only 76 degrees. it's not a picture perfect forecast for the whole area, that's for sure. now, the radar, not showing you much right now, despite the heat and humidity, there's one or two little showers.
this one is right on the pennsylvania turnpike in chester coupe, just north of westchester over east whiteland township. this one by coatesville. these are very much isolated. the area to watch is down in the at lap tick ocean. there's possible tropical storm development and it could at least indirectly affect our weekend because the track takes it towards south carolina and then at least the remnants of it coming up closer to us, and what that does is increase the moisture, and so, for example, rehoboth beach, sunny, sunday, starting off sunny, showers late in the day, and monday, we have rain, thunderstorms, and colder weather. it's going to be a chilly monday. that's the day that is not going to be the beach day.
sunday could be at least for the morning. tomorrow, definitely. tuesday, sun returns, tropical system is gone. warms up again. wednesday is fairly warm. and then the east wind comes back, and the temperatures go back down later next week and into next weekend, so this heat is not going to last that long. >> for the first time ever, the philly pops and center of performing arts presents memorial salute, a concert honoring all those who served happening tomorrow night at 7:00. it's up to the public. glen is the m.c. veterans and active military and firefighter as police officers watch the show for free as well as their families and schoolteachers, students, and administrators can get free tickets. go to nbc10.com for more information. comcast and nbc 10 are proud sponsors of this moe mori yal

that's not going to be reaching us tonight. we have one little shower in chester county, but this gives you an idea of the moisture and instability that is not too far to the west, but could affect us as early as tomorrow. going through the night tonight, don't expect any significant rain in any part of the area. if there is any, it would be northern and western suburbs or levalley, but the humidity is high so the temperatures are not dropping as much as they have in previous nights. you can see it's a very warm start to the evening. it's not going to end that way this weekend. big changes coming, and i'll outline them in minutes. >> see you then. nbc 10's tim furlong is monitoring traffic from the air right now. live in skyforce10. how does it look below you, tim? >> reporter: looking action packed, and glad i'm not in

look at the temperatures, 92 degrees in philadelphia. south jersey 89. there is a chance of a thunderstorm in the lehigh valley in the afternoon, just a chance, and cooler at the jersey shore. all the temperatures are lower on sunday. partly because more clouds, partly because of wind off the ocean. the shore is 73. there are chances, increasing chances, the later you go in the day sun, the greater the chance of any kind of rain, and monday, it's pretty likely to see rain just about anywhere, just about any time of the day, and, of course, the temperatures drop as a result. lehigh valley just 79 degrees. the shore only 64 degrees, so there's going to be quite a difference between the beginning and end of the weekend. one isolated shower in chester county. most activity is, well, out in central pennsylvania, and that activity could be affecting us
