was a lot of rain coming our way. this is the first of two systems that will be affecting us. this system obviously has some strength to it. you see the yellows, oranges and reds. all that is heading in our direction. we're looking at periods of heavy rain, possibly spot thunderstorms moving in as we hit tuesday. the second system moving in on wednesday. here is tomorrow's planner. notice the icons. a lot different than it's been the last few days, rainy throughout. mid-50s to start your morning. that's warmer than the average high temperature for this point of year. look how warm we get, low 60s in philadelphia, near 60 in the suburbs with rain as well. we're talking throughout the day. this is a washout forecast for us. in the lehigh valley, 48 degrees at 7:00 a.m. again, very mild conditions for this time of year. the mid-50s at noon. we could see some of those pocket heavier showers moving throughout as well. in delaware, 7:00 a.m., 54

a good amount of rain in reading, 1 1/2 inches as we move into the evening. and that's just for your tuesday. by wednesday, the second round moving in, which will give us yet again a good amount of rain. by wednesday, look at this, 70 degrees for the forecast high in philadelphia. of course that's way warmer than average with that 51 degree average temperature. back in the 50s on thursday, that's when rain showers move out. we're looking potentially at your next round of rain into the end of the following weekend where temperatures are back to being more seasonal. >> krystal, thank you. the philadelphia federation of teachers says it will reject a $100 million contract from the school district. the union says the deal doesn't include back pay. teachers have been without a contract for three years and without raises for even longer. the school district says if it could offer more money, it would. >> we have to prioritize. now the priority is to get a contract that gives teachers

problem is, we had all those leaves fall over the last couple of weeks, which means the piles may be clogging storm drains in your neighborhood. a suggestion would be, sweep up those leaves tonight, throw them away, put them in bags. don't just put them in the roadway, because that can lead to the flooding concerns. plus wet leaves can lead to slippery conditions for walking or driving. and with the morning commute a big concern here, that could be a problem. take a look at our below average totals so far this year. philadelphia, more than circumstances inches below the annual precip we should be at this time of year. trenton, over a foot below. so a lot of us could really use this moisture and we'll be getting it. temperatures will be way warmer than everyone. we've been in the low 50s, tomorrow we're up to 62. by wednesday, to 70 degrees. that warm air, though, may assist with the potential of seeing thunderstorms. we'll track that on your future

ballots. but because of a delay in sending out those ballots, some voters were not going to be able to send them back by the deadline. county lawyers got an extension. but because the election has not been certified, we still don't know how many ballots made it back. today's delay is because of the jill stein campaign's calls for a recount. election officials say they should be able to certify the election by december 12th. that is the day we should find out how many montgomery county absentee voter had their vote count. i'm mitch blacher, nbc 10 news. we're learning more tonight about the search for two men wanted for shooting another man outside a store in overbrook. the victim was leaving a stop and go store near malvern and 66th when he realized he was being followed. two men were behind him, according to police. one opened fire, shooting him twice in the hip. the victim is in stable condition. it's been more than 30 years since the bombing of the move house in west philadelphia, and still that neighborhood has not
