degrees. 65 degrees out here in lees port. we'll stay on the cool side of tonight. we should stay dry as well. as we go wider on satellite radar, we see that this is the system. we're just keeping an eye on this system. a far-reaching system that is bringing severe weather to parts of northern texas, oklahoma, stretching all the way through the tennessee valley and it's a low pressure system that we do anticipate this sort of squeak into our area tomorrow. tomorrow afternoon. the system will be moving south to north, and we want to go ahead and show you the futurecast model. what's interesting about this system because it will be spreading in from the south and coming through to the northeast, there are portions of the day where sunshine appeared north of philadelphia, but everyone else will be shrouded with the cloud cover. as we put it into motion we can show you by the morning hours, the clouds are just overspreading and by 7:00 tomorrow evening, about dinnertime, we can expect to see
some spotty shower activity moving in. mainly south and east of philadelphia. look here. really nothing through trenton and north of philly into allentown. but then the larger system sets up, moves in by 9:00. and this is where you'll just want to have your umbrellas handy especially heading out for the fireworks. we don't anticipate the convection just yet but that can be coming as the system gains more instability and more oomph as we get closer to the 10:00 hour. and then by midnight or 1:00 a.m., we get really some heavier cells moving through the city. by then, festivities should be over with and you just want to be careful driving home. this is one model, and this is the way it's shaping up. by 3:00 a.m., the heavy stuff moves to the northeast off the jersey coastline and waking up tuesday morning, we could still see some shower activity, but the whole system is expected to get out of here by tuesday afternoon. so the headlines read this way. mostly cloudy tomorrow, although
could see some sunshine north and west of philadelphia. showers begin south moving up to the north and by the nighttime hours we can even get possible thunderstorms moving through the area overnight. if you are planning on all of the wawa welcome america festivities, the parade in philadelphia, we're looking for cloudy skies here. by 5:00, some shower activity possible. 79 degrees. it will be on the cooler side. you'll want to have the umbrellas and foul weather gear for later on in the nighttime. that's when we have our best potential in and around philadelphia for the showers to be moving through. so really best advice. just have the umbrellas handy tomorrow night and enjoy your fourth of july. we'll be back after the break. hello!
