allentown 65. trenton 60. boardwalk down to 68 degrees. that matches ocean temperature and sea breeze. wilmington currently 60 degrees. satellite six with action radar showing cloud are continuing to thicken up. and there is two low pressures in play. is there one over kentucky, this is beginning to weaken, and this coastal low is beginning to form, and take over, and that is that will bring up the cloudy, dreary, conditions, really throughout the day tomorrow. but this impact scale shows you that if you want to get out and about, if you need to do some activity, do it in the morning. the impact will be lower around 9:00 o'clock. you can see how it increases in the afternoon. this is when we will be seeing heavy rain. future tracker showing around 11:00 o'clock showers mainly south of philadelphia and fills in more by 2:00. as we head into about 5:00 o'clock heavy rain that will last into saturday night, before tapering off to some lingering showers by late saturday night and that
primary low moves out quickly. problem is a secondary cut off, upper level low and this system will meander here. sunday, monday, and even tuesday. that will keep us, unsettled, but then when that le pressure moves out, we've got a major warm up by, wednesday. so the exclusive accu weather seven day forecast, lots of cloud. it will be breezy and it will be dam one period of rain especially in the afternoon. the high 61 degrees. sunday, lots of cloud, occasional showers, 68. monday and tuesday, still a chance of a pop up shower or thunderstorm. they look less numerous by tuesday with a high of 76. look at this, by wednesday, first time in the 80's this month. 83 degrees, on thursday, and 84, and, friday, and, 85 degrees with the possibility of the late day thunderstorm. an early look at the holiday weekend shows temperatures in the 80's. a little bit unsettled but on the warm side and definitely better than this weekend.
phillies trying to get, climb that mountain and get to the very top, they had a weak team they played tonight. >> right. >> things don't go according to plan, jim. phillies so close to first place. braves are the worst team in baseball. before you think it is a give me, think again. in the night, 350 dogs on hand. a lot of wawa bags. third inning aaron nola faces freddie freeman, two run home run. first of two for freeman tonight. he hits a two run home run. >> phillies down two-one, number eight hitter up because coach mackanin likes to bat the pitcher eighth. it doesn't get it done.
he retired seven batters. 's loud just one run. same cannot be said for nola, nick in the seventh, nola gives up five runs, two are earn. phillies lose seven-one. >> they have got a good line up there. they are not a push over by any means. on any given day, they can beat anybody. we have to take them, you know, we cannot take them for granted. we have to go out there and battle to win. and that is what we have to do the next two games, the rest of the year actually. phillies top prospect jp crawford has been pro meted to triple a lehigh valley. tonight was his first game for iron pigs, crawford goes zero for three with the walk and strike out. we are less than five weeks a way from the nba draft, all focus has been on the sixers number one overall pick but they have two other picks as well, 24 and 26 overall. so to help them decide on those selections, the sixers invited more prospects to their practice facility for a work out today and that included isaiah miles. he explains how he would fit in with the sixers.
91st minute. >> goal. >> put a shirt on that man. richie marquez with the game winner. union win one to nothing. they are now in first place, and pens/lightening, that is odd. game four pittsburgh keeps series two-one. tyler johnson gives lightening a a huge lead this makes it a four to nothing game. the pittsburgh scores three in the third to make it four- 36789 a late flurry, comes up short, tampa bay wins four -three to tie the series at two-two. that is sports. >> do you think sidney crosby is upset by that. >> a little bit. jimmy kimmel is next followed by night line. jimmy's guest brian cranston, anika rose and music from joanna new some.
