6:10 am
clouds. less wind, 49 the high. there are the winds, only about seven to 14 miles per hour so no more of those gusts up in the 30's and 40's. that will be nice to get kind of a break from that. if you are traveling or receiving guests later today at 2 o'clock this is what it's going to look like up to boston maine. dry conditions chilly and it looks like we're dry all the way down to about savannah georgia where there could be some light sprinkles and showers later today. the big issue will be up in the midwest where there are some showers coming through and maybe even a couple of pockets of light snow up in minneapolis, parts of wisconsin and maybe northern michigan. all of this will be moving east, too, so at 2 o'clock detroit will start to get some of this cleveland maybe a little bit after that so something to keep in mind and of course if you're flying in those areas maybe a delay, maybe not. overnight mostly cloudy, a late sprinkle is possible. this is mainly up to the north, though. 38 the overnight low in philadelphia. some of our northern suburbs will get down to about the freezing mark, though, so if you do happen to get a sprinkle up in, say, northern bucks, montgomery county, the lehigh valley, berks, places like that, it could freeze up
6:11 am
on road surfaces. i think the chances of you seeing anything are pretty small but if it happens and you're driving around you see something that looks wet slow it down. here is that overnight precipitation. most of it snow and mixed precip up in the poconos, though. it would be an issue if you're going up there. then on thursday in the morning, cloudy skies to start out for the parade. looks like by the end of the parade at noon there could be some sprinkles and showers moving in and certainly possible during the walk back to the dar or the rain to so keep an umbrella handy down at the parade in all likelihood. we'll update you tomorrow morning and then the rest of the day into the evening it's light real spotty showers. for the parade itself temps in the low 40's at the start, upper 40's at the end and the winds will be light so these balloon guys will fly. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast going for that high of 49 today with sun eventually mixing with a few clouds, less wind. tomorrow clouds, not very windy but some spotty showers around, 52. and then clouds with a few sunny breaks on friday 56 and there's the chance of a shower late in the day or at night. then on saturday sunny breaks breezy looks like we're dry 54
