work because of the strike. >> and maybe they should bring an umbrella tomorrow, sheena. >> i think you'll need the umbrella in the afternoon. so if the septa strike is affecting you and you'll be walking or maybe biking tomorrow, in the morning we'll be dry. but in the afternoon, we have some showers rolling through. so you will want the umbrella. morning temperatures by 7:00 a.m. around the philadelphia area, mid-50s, by lunchtime we're back in the 70s. we could make it into the mid-to-upper 70s, but by 5:00 p.m. expect some showers to be around. temperatures cooling down by then in the upper 60s. some areas tomorrow could near 80 degrees. now, most of the area again dry for the morning, but showers in the afternoon. you'll need your umbrella later in the day. and once that rain clears, it's all part of a cold front. we're going to cool down big time as we go into your friday and stay chilly as we go through your weekend. here's what's happening with temperatures. normal high this time of year, 61 degrees. we've been below that to start the week. today we got to 70. tomorrow, 76. look at the drop going into friday. from 76 to 59 degrees.
it's going to be a huge difference as we go through the next couple of days. so just make sure you have the umbrella tomorrow and then the coat as we go intot end of the week. so locally we're still dry. no rain moving in right now. the closest rain is moving towards ohio, and that will be here again later in the day tomorrow. so your neighborhood high temperatures with that afternoon rain chance, fairmount, 76. reading and allentown could only be in the upper 60s because the rain is going to get there first. we'll see that earlier rain cooling things down first. voorhees township could get to 78 degrees. in delaware, we could see an 80. can't rule out the chance of a thunderstorm, but it looks pretty spotty at this point. 11:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, clouds increasing but most of the area should still be dry. there's that warm air still in place. now we're looking at 2:30. so it doesn't look like anything too impressive. i think we'll see some scattered
showers in the afternoon. can't again rule out a thunderstorm. by 6:00 p.m., mostly new jersey and delaware seeing some of that spotty rain. clearing tomorrow night. clearing for friday and also chilly. temperatures really dropping for friday and going into the weekend. so your saturday and sunday, right around 60 degrees for saturday. 59 as we go into sunday, but noise and dry across the weekend. then we go into next week. election day looks dry. low 60s. also don't forget this weekend we have the heart walk on saturday. looks good for that. just cold in the morning. a morning low of 38 degrees. set your clocks back one hour sunday morning. we fall back, and next week mostly in the 60s.

"i don't remember." he's going like "i don't remember!" no warning, no hearing. it's a lending practice sorcing outrageous, most states banned it. but at the bank founded by pat toomey it was business as usual. forcing small business owners out of their homes.
toomey even used his power in the senate to help himself, voting to gut rules that protect us and crack down on big banks. pat toomey. out for himself, not us. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising. pwhen i come home and dinner'sry not ready i go through the roof. grab 'em by

i don't know what i said, ahh... who attributed a reporter's questions to her menstrual cycle. trump: blood coming out of her...wherever. he is not a person who is equipped in temperament, judgment or character to lead our troops. donald trump has created a toxic atmosphere pitting one group against another. he's a mexican. claiming a person can't do the job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.
