airport. little bit on the chilly side this morning once again. and little milder later this afternoon but of course we are in the process of getting ready for that thickening cloud cover today and that rain tomorrow. 41 degrees is your temperature right now in philadelphia. little cool. and winds out of the northeast at 6 miles per hour. not all that strong right now. future tracker6 showing you that while we might see some early sunshine after the sun comes up later, you advance this up to 10, 11 and 12 o'clock today and the clouds really do thicken up. the model wants to put a slight chance of a spring sprinkle in this evening. i think the better chance is later in the evening hours but obviously the clouds are pretty much an issue for most of the region today. going to be a tad milder this afternoon. 45 degrees by 8 o'clock. 57 by 11 o'clock. and then 62 degrees by 2 o'clock with an afternoon high of 63 around 3 o'clock. we'll still be holding onto 60 by 5 o'clock and the overnight lows actually are only going to hold close to 60 degrees
probably getting down to the mid and upper visits across the region as a whole. lots of clouds today after a little bit of early sunshine, a bit milder with a high of 58 in allentown. getting up to 59 in reading, 62 trenton, 64 wilmington, 63 again in philadelphia and 65 in millville and a little cooler down the shore but not bad, low 60's, lots of clouds building. and then overnight and into tomorrow morning we are looking out to the west and waiting for some rain to arrive. by 6 o'clock while we're on the air, some of the western suburbs may already be picking this up and then during the morning rush hour up until 9 o'clock it looks like the rain does want to push in closer to philadelphia and become steady at times in the western suburbs and then the rest of the day we look at periods of steady rain. sometimes it may not be raining all that much but the day as a whole really looks like it's going to be damp. this is 2:30 about the time the kids coming home from school and then we move up into the evening rush hour and it's possible that by 6 o'clock the heaviest rain is over to the east but it will still be a slow commute with damp conditions out there and the last of the raindrops
probably not getting out of here until much later in the evening tomorrow. how much rain were we expecting? a half inch to an inch in most neighborhoods. a couple spots might go higher than that but it is going to be a fairly good rain tomorrow and as you just saw lasting through most of the day. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, lots of clouds today, 63 is the high. later in the afternoon and the this evening a couple of spotty sprinkles and showers are possible but the bulk of the rain holding off until thursday morning as you just saw and then continuing in through the majority of the day. tomorrow will be mild with a high of 69. and then the rain is gone for friday its breezy and cooler with a high of 58 and even chillier for the weekend. clouds mixing with sun on saturday a high of 54 degrees. only 49 on sunday and we'll be starting out in the morning in the 30's so if you're headed down to the philadelphia marathon you want to bundle up especially if you're going to be volunteering. once the runners get going they like that colder air. if you're standing around do you know there dress warmly and bundle up for the eagles. we stay in the 40's on monday and then back into the low 50's on tuesday.
