so temperatures are going to be cooler in the afternoon than what we've been experiencing the last couple days which were the last couple days of my vacation. so nice in the afternoon. not going to be quite as nice today. so here's a look right now at our temperatures. it's still fairly mild start to the morning. a few of us are in the 30s, pottstown checking in at 38, 44 allentown. 48 philadelphia. 49 millville. these temperatures you might want a jacket but won't need a big coat or anything of that extent. the thing is as we get into the later hours of today, it's not going to warm like it has the last few days. so instead of 70s we're going to be talking a little cooler conditions out there with the temperatures mostly in the upper 50s to right around the low 60s. here's a look at radar and satellite. so this picture shows us we have a good bit of clouds overhead right now. today you'll see the clouds thicken through the afternoon hour. a mostly cloudy day but a fairly dry day until this evening. that's when we'll start to bring in a chance of rain as a warm front approaches the area.
but that also bumps the temperatures up for tomorrow. winds, well, this is why we're cooler. they're sweeping in from the northeast. even though they're not terribly strong, about 5 to 15 miles per hour, an east flow pushes in cooler northeast air. that's why temperatures today will be down a notch. we'll talk about the ups and downs of our temperatures and when it looks like things plateau in the fall weather coming up in a bit. >> looking forward to it. thanks for that, krystal. participants in the american heart association's annual heart walk will start with layers on this morning because it is chilly out there. this is a live look at citizens bank park where thousands will walk to raise money for research. nbc10's randy gyllenhaal is live in south philadelphia, randy, many of those walking have their own stories of survival. >> reporter: yeah, it is going to be a cold morning here but people say it's worth it for this walk, a three-mile walk starting here at citizens bank park making its way down to the wells fargo center through fdr park. they're going to arrive here in a couple hours.

for this time of year, the average high being 60 degrees. in the suburbs 43 around 7:00 a.m. increasing clouds into the afternoon, i think maybe a peek of sun still possible but leaning towards mostly cloudy throughout our afternoon hours. 56 at 3:00 p.m. in the suburbs. that's nearly the same in parts of the lehigh valley and berks county. but the good news is if you do have plans outside as long as you got a few layers on you should be good outdoors because we're going to remain dry through the daytime hours. in delaware 45 at 7:00 a.m. about 58 at 3:00. again, just like parts of philadelphia, delaware and new jersey will flirt with 60 degrees this afternoon. even the shore the same deal. you see cloudy conditions by 3:00 in the afternoon. so let's go through our hour by hour model just for today. we've got some clouds out there this morning. they may thicken up a bit starting around your lunchtime and then progressively throughout the afternoon hours especially, mostly cloudy spectrum. this is at 7:00, so dinner plans this evening you're going to be fine. but if you plan to be out later into the evening you may want to keep an umbrella on hand because spotty showers will start to move in overnight.
that will continue into your sunday. we're going to talk more about that forecast and what to expect if you're heading to the eagles game coming up in a bit. >> get the umbrellas handy, thanks, krystal. this weekend you can celebrate fall in bucks county, and based on the forecast today may be the better day to do it. peddler's village is hosting annual apple festival today and tomorrow. shops will sell apple cider, apple fritters, pies, you maim it. every am guests can cheer on competitors in the pie eating contest. thought in a million years that i would see my mother being dragged to the ground, kicked and punched. >> a fight over a parking spot turns violen turns violent. coming up, why a city council president is being accused of bad behavior. ♪ ♪

spilling across the area. looks like the lehigh valley, berks, looks like more coverage but that will continue for most of the day. so 58 in center city. somerton you're at 59. upper 50s pennsylvania suburbs, lehigh valley and even berks county in the upper 50s. allentown about 56 this afternoon. so this is going to be cooler than what we've seen the last couple days. this cooldown approaching with some cooler air moving in because we've got this northeast flow of wind. so when you're pulling in air from the northeast, we know that's a colder area so it's going to bring in cooler air to our neck of the woods throughout today. in new jersey 58 in trenton, 60 for ocean city and right near the low 60s for much of delaware as well. let's go through the hour by hour. so i showed you this just a moment ago. increasing clouds through today. some sprinkles starting to approach by tonight. and then spotty showers overnight on into tomorrow morning. so this is at 7:00 a.m. is it a washout? no. but could you see a few showers tomorrow morning? absolutely. and then that chance of some
spotty showers mostly diminishes by your lunchtime, but still an isolated sprinkle here or there. not going to rule it out for your sunday daytime hours even in the afternoon. it just looks less likely in the afternoon than in the morning. so let's talk about your weather for the eagles forecast tomorrow. 1:00 kickoff 64 degrees, we are going to be warmer than today. we'll make it to about 66 at halftime. and stay there through 4:00 p.m. winds may be a little breezy to start and we could see like i mentioned a light sprinkle move by. for the most part this is going to be pretty good weather, much better than last sunday. don't forget fall back tonight. sunrise today at 7:34 this morning. look at sunrise tomorrow, 6:35 in the morning. i don't like this. tonight sunset at 5:55. tomorrow sunset at 4:54. just push that clock back before you go to bed this evening. so tomorrow you don't get up too early. we'll talk more about your ten-day on 10 in the next half hour. >> too early. krystal, you and i know the meaning of that all too well. coming up, fast and furious on the field, it's a playoff
