tonight and, glenn, you just found out camden has moved up their fireworks from 9:30 to 9:00. >> yeah, because the rain is going to get a little bit steadier and heavier the later we go into the evening hours. i don't think there's a whole lot of a threat of thunderstorms or flooding rains or anything like that during the evening. the worst of this whole system is coming well after midnight tonight. have a few sprinkles that have already developed in parts of montgomery county and burks county. that's way ahead of the main area. that continues to come up through maryland. it's been raining in washington for a few hours now. it's been raining in baltimore. once the rain starts it's fairly steady and the leading edge of this would hit wilmington around 6:10. atlantic city at 6:36 and philadelphia 7:24. allentown about 8:30, so in all of those cases there is the rain falling before the fireworks. would be scheduled.
we're not talking about really heavy rain. the heavy rain is coming from that area in west virginia and that's not going to come until much later tonight and that's where any flood threat comes. there is a flash flood watch for much of the area and we've issued a first alert for the entire area outside the lehigh valley and burks county for after 3:00 a.m. to 9:00 am tomorrow. now, you can see the rain at 6:30, and now at 8:00 tonight. it's raining in philadelphia. it's still not ant trenton, but it will be moving there. everybody's going to get rain tonight. it will being getting a little bit heavier as the evening goes on. there's 9:00 so you've got to take the umbrellas with you. i've seen fireworks in the rain before and had the umbrella, and as long as the clouds aren't real low to the ground you can still see it. i don't think the clouds will be that loy to the ground, at least not through this evening, but
there's that rain at 10:00 tonight when they are going to try to have the fireworks. there's midnight, and we have a little bit heavier rain. 1:30 in the morning. there it is. that's the area of the steadier rain and the possible thunderstorms. that's the morning rush tomorrow. that's not real hopeful. you can see we start off with just the clouds, and as we get closer to 7:00, we have the better chance of rain. by 8:00 it's definitely raining in and around the philadelphia area. at the shore, atlantic city, for example, 5:00, it's still just cloudy, and, again, as we go through the evening, the chances of at least some light rain go up and by tomorrow morning that's when it's really going to be getting heavy. it's down to 77 degrees at philly international. we did get into the 80s today and it's going to get really hot
over the next several days. it's kind of windy in wilmington. wind out of the south but the general trend is not for a real windy evening. now, tomorrow, these thunderstorms generally occurring in the morning, and in the afternoon the sun starts coming out and the temperatures go up, and it gets humid. allentown is 87. 89 degrees in esham township and warm in atlantic city at 84 degrees and then look at what happens to these temperatures. 91 in philadelphia tomorrow, but then 96, 97 degrees. i expect temperatures to be well into the 90s even for friday and saturday as well. so that will be the next big story. >> and my mike was on there, glenn. >> our fourth of july coverage continues next and a look at other celebrations aron the area. >> and here's another live look over the ben franklin parkway
another live look. sky force 10 is live over the ben franklin parkway where the wawa festival is revving up for its finale. the festival is capped off by a concert at 5:00 followed by the fireworks show at 10. >> the mummers, start of the show. they strutted their stuff during the celebration here at pine and
cedar croft and the battleship provided the backdrop for a very special fourth of july ceremony this morning. >> for purpose of evasion. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations. you are america's newest citizens. >> 40 people celebrated as they became citizens today. we want to say congratulations to each of them. >> now the big concern ahead of july 4th celebrations the rain moving in. >> chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is tracking what's coming. glenn? >> yeah, that's right. there's just no doubt that rain is moving in and it could put a daefrm on fireworks plans in some parts of the area and the first sprinkles are already starting in parts of the region. i'll show you the timing neighborhood by neighborhood hook. >> want to take you back outside right now. this is down broad street from our kimmel center campus camera
right now at 4:30 we're tracking storms that could play a factor in your fourth of july festivities. see them approaching on the nbc 10 radar. but it looks pretty good in many neighborhoods. here's a live look from wildwood this afternoon where thousands of people were spending their holidays. >> concert in the sand is what they are all going to see. >> sky force 10 live over the parkway where thousands of people gather for the july 4th

we're not talking about a solid area, but it's just going to get more solid and steady as we go through the evening, so the earlier you do the barbecues, the less rin that's going to be. rain in burks county, chester county and much of delaware here and even up to atlantic city by 7:00. by 8:00 it's widespread. a little bit heavier in some parts of the area. hour by hour futurecast. it's range in lehigh valley and raining at the shore and in delaware. 9:00, still rain iing. locally heavy and this particular computer model is not exactly optimistic for this evening so here's the forecast at 8:00. we expect some rain and the concert at 9:00. it's raining perhaps a little bit harder and by 10:00 it's
raining at a steady pace and a little bit heavier. these are some of the other fireworks forecast. even trenton and ocean city are going to see some of the rain, and it will be getting heavier at times as we get closer to 10:00 and 11:00 tonight. more on what to expect the rest of the night and the week coming up. >> now we head outside to the museum of art where the nation's biggest birthday party is under way. >> that's in center city. >> some of the seats are starting to fill in and jim rosenfield and jacqueline london joining us live from the wawa festival. the count don is on to the beginning. concert. >> you know, without the sun out, it's kind of pleasant out here actually because it's cool enough. you're not baking in the heat. opened up some of the sections and families have come out here for the concert which start just about half an hour from now.
