ponder now what on "meet the press" tomorrow morning at 10:30 on nbc10. this is quite the forecast we're looking at. such change between saturday, saturday night into sunday. pretty good forecast. start with saturday morning. 42 degrees in endora. center city, 52 degrees for the morning start. awesome start for this time of year. a result of the fact that yesterday we got up to 70 degrees in some areas, which is way warmer than average for middle of november. 46, fox chase and choooler in summerton. these are numbers in some spots we wish we could see for highs tomorrow. shows you how much of a cool down for sunday. right now, we're looking out to the west.
this is a huge cold front we're looking at, the storm center showing cold air behind the front. purple, white is snow moving over the great lakes and will be heading our direction as we move tonight into sunday. by sunday, most of the precipitation will be out but cold air behind it will be the focus of the forecast. right now, things are clear. good start to the morning. doing a half marathon, things will be fine for you. it is the full marathon tomorrow we have big concerns about. here's why. looking at future radar. warm air we had a hold on lingers over us this morning through this afternoon. it is going to start to be edged out today. going from clear to 5:30 in the evening. not clear entirely. clouds build in from the west. with it maybe spotty showers ahead of the front itself. heavier rain, maybe spots of heavy rain and rain snow mix.
then through 5:30 to 9:30, now the center is right over our viewing area and look at that, areas like allentown, parts of upper bucks county starting to see a rain, snow mix possibility and some snow falling over the poconos. looks like the poconos is the best chance of snow falling. that moves through the night as this moves off, lingering in the northeast part of pennsylvania. otherwise, out of the area by midnight for the most part. what we are going to see is way cooler air and windy conditions behind the precipitation. that's not the concern as you move in. sunday, mostly clear aside from snow over the poconos. looking at the big weekend change, this is the difference. 67 for the afternoon. look at sunday. temperature 48. the best we can do. feels like because of winds, 75
degrees. that's in the afternoon. in the mornings closer to 20 in parts of philadelphia. these are temperatures today. if you want to get out earlier today, things are fine. 69 in summerton. lansdale, 65. westchester, showers move in late day and winds pick up. they'll pick up late day into tonight. atlantic city 63 and 65 in wilmington. next half hour, checking the ten day on 10, looking at thanksgiving. >> looking forward to that. thanks. amazon wants to you ask its digital assistant alexa for help with holiday shopping. the online retailer is offering deals to prime members who order through the alexa enabled devices including the echo dot. access the deals by saying alexa, what are your deals. 5:19 this saturday. 46 degrees outside the nbc10
