no worries. warming up nicely. coming up in my next forecast i have what to expect for the next ten days. if you're hitting the road this holiday weekend, gas prices not too bad. the average price of gas nationwide is about $2.30. that's about 34 cents less than a year ago, but it's the highest price so far this year. locally on average a gallon of unleaded regular gas costs $2.47 in philly, and the suburbs just outside philly in pennsylvania. in south jersey, $2.12. we know it's cheapest in south jersey. delaware is $2.24 a gallon. 8:09 on this saturday. the memorial day weekend, as we know, is a busy time at the shore, at the delaware beaches and even in the pocono mountains. those are not the only places to find family fun. if you're staying in town, take a listen. ♪ >> that's what you can hear tonight at 7:00. the philly pops and the mann center for the performing arts
will be presenting memorial salute, a concert honoring all those who serve. chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz will be emceeing the event. it's open to the public. tickets are reasonably priced and there are some deals for special groups. so veterans, active military, philly police and firefighters, they can get into the show for free along with their families. same goes for philadelphia public school students, teachers and administrators. they can also get free tickets. for details, just go to nbc10.com or check out the nbc10 app. nbc10 and our parent company comcast are proud to sponsor the event. today you can visit a piece of history in allentown. the solar impulse plane is on display right now at the lehigh valley international airport from 10:00 this morning until 4:00 this afternoon. it is trying to make a record-breaking trip around the world using solar energy. the goal of the trip is to raise

friday president obama became the first sitting american president to visit hiroshima, the city where the u.s. dropped the first atomic bomb more than 70 years ago. now your nbc10 first alert neighborhood weather. >> good morning. i am meteorologist erica martin with a look at what to expect for the rest of this holiday weekend. right now conditions are warming up nicely. we're seeing lots of 70s. mid 70s for the lehigh valley. delaware currently at 72 degrees. if i can get that going there. i'm new. why not. 74 for the p.a. suburbs and philadelphia, currently at 73 degrees. so as we continue this going, we'll see the temperatures climb steadily into the 80s and the 90s as the day progresses. the warmest day of this holiday weekend, and then we start to cool down late sunday into monday as a cold front pushes through from the northwest. so headlines include 80s for some and mainly some 90s across the area. so, again, keep in mind that
we're going to start to warm up nicely as the day continues and then by sunday into monday we're certainly going to see a cool-down and a lot of rain showers in the works and possibly some isolated thunderstorms. otherwise, philadelphia, this is how your day breaks down for today. at 10:00 a.m., 76 degrees. notice that we're seeing a mix of sun and clouds. everything will improve as the day progresses. the pollen forecast is not this but we're certainly going to see uncomfortable situations for the next couple of days. big story right now, of course, is the u.v. index. we'll see a couple of showers here moving in. but that's not the case right now. we do have a high pressure system that's sitting over north carolina. it will continue to work its way northeastward. as it does, it will allow some showers to keep on in as that tropical depression pushes inion shore. then the showers push northward.
lehigh valley, 10:00, 79 degrees and mid to upper 80s by noon. a nice day in the forecast overall. keep in mind that the u.v. index is high and we're having air quality issues, so the ozone is a major issue. the e.p.a. has issued a statement for today, so keep in mind that's going to be a problem especially if you suffer from asthma and for children as well. stay hydrated because of the warm conditions. so currently, west mount airy, 72. parkside, 74. society hill 73. and pennsport currently the upper 70s. the day warms up nicely. plenty of 90s in the forecast and cooler temperatures by tomorrow. you can always find out more information if you follow us on twitter, and we'll keep you posted on just how the tropical depression will affect us. even though it's not here now it will get to the carolina coastline by tomorrow, and then it looks like some showers and thunderstorms, possibly flooding, by monday morning.

pennsylvania and in philadelphia. so i think that makes it unique. >> you talk about coming into the building, people are invited. let's segue into your event coming up which is a reception and really an open house for people to get to know the school and the students. >> yes. always looking for friends. as you know, we are challenged in terms of supporting our public schools. we are a charter school, but we too are challenged. we have over 500 young people. about 530 students in the school. the education now is so much more than the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic. we have to prepare the children for problem-solving and working in collaboration. the focus on technology is so important. one of the projects we've launched is to put chromebooks in every classroom. we have a computer lab, but having technology in the classroom is really important as well. so we have looked for ways to continue to bring resources into the school.

system. wentz has definitely opened eyes during his minimal work on the field including those of wide receiver jordan matthews who was on csn's "quick slants" this week. >> you can tell he plays the edge. you can tell he has a chip, and you can tell he wants to take risks. one of the biggest attributes in a quarterback that people overlook is savvy. the great ones, aaron rodgers of the world, the tom bradys, peyton manages, brett favres. a lot of them are great with -- about xs and os but also have savvy. they're not always going to go by the book. >> training camp is less than two months away. i am amy fadool from "comcast sportsnet."
nbc10 continues our commitment to clear the shelters and find homes for adoptable pets. on this saturday i am joined by charlotte the kitten here who is -- now she is playing with my mike. >> she has taken to your microfoern. tell us how charlotte came to you. >> she was found as a stray. she really likes it. she is very playful all of a sudden. she came to us as a stray several weeks ago now. it's really that season where kittens are all around. kittens and their moms. so she was underweight at the time and went into poour foster care program so get up to two pounds so she could be ready to be spayed and up for adoption. >> you mentioned this is the season for kittens not just for the pennsylvania spca but everywhere. >> yes. we made a trip to act philly this week as well. we're trying to help them as
much as we can. pulled some moms and kittens. their maternity ward was full. we try to partner as much as we can to get them out. those kittens and moms will also have to go into foster care. we're asking people, you know, of course, if you want to adopt a kitten, we have plenty, but also, if you're not ready to have a pet full-time, this is like probably a two, four, six weeks at the most commitment to keep the moms and kittens until they are ready to be spayed or neutered and ultimately adopted. >> i should mention that many spca employees like yourself, jillian, do a lot of the fostering after hours. >> exactly. i actually have a foster dog with me at this time. we really see firsthand the dogs or cats who are in need, whether it be that they're too young or they have a medical issue or they're just stressed in the kennels and we want to make sure that we're doing as much as we can for them while we can.
so our foster program is so important. and yeah. so our employees do it a lot. we'd love as much help as we can get. >> you're practicing what you're preaching. no offense for this weekend. it's a holiday weekend, we know a lot of people are out of town but you're open today and tomorrow. >> yes. we won't be open on monday but today and tomorrow. we have kittens, young dogs and adults as well. lots of great animals being looking for home. >> the number, 215-426-6300. jillian coker, thank you for being with us. >> one last check of the weather. let's send it over to meteorologist erica martin. hey, erica. >> you know what, for all the pet owners, keep in mind with the thunderstorms late sunday into monday, they might get a little jittery. give them extra tlc. otherwise right now seeing lots of sunshine. a gorgeous day in the forecast. temperatures in the 80s and 90s. a wonderful start to the holiday weekend.
