11:48 am
starts. here we are with the futurecast by 2:00. this is mostly just rain. some of it a little bit on the heavier side as we go towards 7:00 and 8:00 tonight. the heaviest of the rain might come just after the afternoon rush. it is likely to be wet during that rush period and we have got some other areas, heavier rain coming through during the evening hours. later tonight things really die down to either light rain or drizzle. could be sprinkles along with fog first thing in the morning. we wait for some kind of sunshine breaking out later in the day. that will determine how warm we get during the afternoon tomorrow. then on thursday we have got an arctic front coming through. it could trigger some snow showers not just in the poconos like today but in the lehigh valley. just get a brief hit with the
11:49 am
showers as that arctic front comes down. so as we zboo tgo into the morn hours cloudy skies everywhere. temperatures above freezing everywhere. that is the important thing even though the rain ends. we are going to be seeing these temperatures go down. wednesday's high about 51 in philadelphia. it is 46 thursday and 48 friday. dover drops into the mid-40s and look at allentown. high temperature 34 with rain and snow showers on thursday. so we try to break everything down for you. on friday some snow flurries possible. lehigh valley generally dry and way below normal temperatures elsewhere across the area for the weekend. so there are the temperatures going down starting on wednesday. on thursday remember we have got

11:51 am
simmons but everybody seems to be pretty optimistic about where the future of the team is. >> i think if you focus on what's in front of your face it can get a little dark. if you just peel back a couple of feet and look at the big picture it's very bright and the sun is coming up. you have ben simmons, number one overall pick. a 40 inch vertical that sees the floor like magic johnson. we have another good draft coming up. you start to see he was ranked second. you start to see these pieces come together, the ones we have been talking about. if you get away just a bit it gets pretty bright. >> tell me where you were. kind of set it up by telling us where you were on 9/11. >> on 9/11 i was in detroit working for the nba league office visiting the pistons, and
