this coming weekend might be horrible again. let's take what we know in the foreseeable future for this week and know that it looks pretty nice. >> week. >> work week, yes. >> always thinking of the weekend. a couple of sprinkles up towards the lehigh valley but overall sunshine sharing that sky with some cloud cover this afternoon and temperatures off to the races in philadelphia 66 degrees above normal at 76, 77 wilmington, 72 in dover as well as millville. right around 70 at the shore with some sunshine and cool are up in the poconos at 61 degrees. satellite and radar little energy to the north, a front that will be pushing through most of the showers will fall apart but getting hit in a couple of locations lehigh valley up to the poconos but as the northerly winds continue to settle in, they're going to turn more from the northwest to the north. clouds will roll back in overnight tonight, partly cloudy and some fog developing much like last night and this morning. 56 to 58 with that north wind
4:49 pm
five to 10 miles an hour. as we look at the surface map here, 70 degrees tomorrow. again, some of that fog or low clouds in the morning breaking to some sun in the afternoon. seasonable tomorrow with high pressure over new england and a trough in the form of a cold front coming in from the west. these two will be a player in the track of matthew. this high's really not going to budge on wednesday so for us locally wednesday morning clouds giving way to afternoon sun at 72. but the strong high it depends on the exact location of that high whether it hugs matthew along the coast or if it weakens enough it could let matthew go out to sea. in addition we have this trough coming in from the west that could link matthew inward to the coastline basically injecting matthew into the trough so these two will have to continue to follow through the rest of the week to see where matthew tracks between those two systems. right now still a category four, winds 140 miles an hour moved to the north at seven. this is the latest track from
4:50 pm
the national hurricane center as of 5:00 p.m. and this track has been shifted to the west which is not good news as it will cut straight through the bahamas wednesday night into thursday morning and be just off the coast of florida as we get into the end of the week thursday and friday as a category three hurricane winds sustained 115 and now with the latest track instead of having it out to sea off of the carolinas, now could make landfall in north carolina saturday afternoon as a category two winds 105 miles an hour so again, this just indicating that the late of the models wander to say this high is going to be too strong holding that storm along the coast and this is the spaghetti plot saturday morning, again good consensus that it's somewhere in north carolina and then it will be just off of our coast here sunday afternoon, so too close for comfort and something we will track here for the seconds half of the weekend for some impacts. the exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, morning fog and some sun tomorrow afternoon, 70. partly sunny on wednesday, 72.
4:51 pm
looking great thursday and friday, temperatures in the low 70's and then we'll watch saturday into sunday as clouds try to increase, we'll have to watch the track of matthew as we go towards that columbus day holiday with temperatures going into the 60's so the latest track just coming in shifting a little west and again that's going to waffle some but not a good way you want that track to kind of push. >> thanks adam. >> coming up later tonight on 6abc the debut of the new legal drama called "conviction." >> i did not vote for your father. >> me either. >> the show's lead character played by halle at well is a complicated antiheroine who spent her life scrutinizes the daughter of politicians and has to fight for redemption. each week conviction will be filled with controversial provocative cases that the legal team has to work to decide if justice lab served. at well describes her character as morally ambiguous
