early on on the day but overall the sunshine works today moving the temperatures up. yesterday it was 55 in philadelphia, the normal is 65 degrees, we were 10 degrees shy of that, and today we are jumping close to 15 to 18 degrees above where we should be depending on your location, 71 in philadelphia and a wild swing that is typical for this time of year. near 70 in allentown and the same for trenton, 71 and 71 in dover, and right along the shore a southwesterly wind, when you get the wind off the water, the water is really cooling down so down to 61, that is why the number is cooler at the shore where a few weeks ago it was warmer at the shore. as you look at satellite and radar, a front remains to the north high pressure is in control and the muscle maker down to the south of the virginias and the carolinas.
stars and seasonable for this time of year tonight, 50 for center city and 43 for the suburbs, it wasn't only 53 for a high on sunday, so tomorrow high pressure to the north and high to the south-southwest and another high pressure centers. that means fairly dry and a front to the north and 75 degrees, since we are south of the warm front with sun tomorrow and a front will approach here and not push through entirely on thursday, we'll see high clouds because of it, and winds from the southwest because of it, 76 degrees for your high that is where we top it off this week on thursday, before the front slips through on saturday, and high pressure from the north, cooler origin of air and the high is only near 60 on friday and saturday, the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, 75 sunny and warm tomorrow and 11 degrees above normal.
76 on thursday and then we back it off again big time here friday, saturday and sunny and cool and highs only in the lower 60s, and milder on sunday with another front and a lot of clouds, and depending on the timing of the front does it come in sunday or monday and a chance of a shower or two, before another cool down arrives on tuesday, with high temperatures on tuesday in the upper 50s, there is something for everybody there. highs in the 50s or highs in the 70s. have you something to look forward to. >> 70s for me. >> i agree. we'll put some hand held steamers to the test. next in whats the deal.

long, the shark fresh and press is the most effective at removing wrinkles. >> it did well with shirts because it also has a pressing bar, in combination with the pressing pad removed a lot of the wrinkles. the heated bar leaves your clothes less damp and the cord is helpful for reaching drapes and easier this spray, downey wrinkle release plus is $8 and consumer reports founds that it removed wrinkles from these shirts and other fabrics. and it doesn't have the pressed look like the shirt on the right but could pass for casual friday. consumer reports tested irons also, consider these best buys. and the t falultra glide, they
are both around $50. i'm nydia han, channel 6 "action news." >> wrinkles are fow good for conscious you'll friday. >> every day. >> for sharrie williams, alicia vitarelli and adam joseph i'm brian taff. hope you'll join me along with sharrie and ducis rogers for an hour of "action news" at 10:00 on phl 17.
