we still see a couple umbrellas walking around down there in center city. lets go take a look at radar and you can see that radar is, indeed, in play, allentown, reading beginning to get on the other side of the rain which is kind of nice but as we take a look at the overhead view you can still see there is fairly steady rain coming through philadelphia, highlighted in yellow, darker shade of green extending to the top of the bucks county and montgomery county as well and down in through south jersey and delaware, that line is starting to move closer to philadelphia and over next hour and a half or so we will see rain slack off here as well. if you are all the way down in cape may county you might wait until later tonight before the rain is finally passed you. 51 degrees your current temperature. winds are calm. if you have umbrella or rain gear and manage to get out split is not too bad temperature wise. up in allentown it is drying out, 48 degrees, put on a coat and good shape. forty-eight in reading. fifty-one in philadelphia and wilmington. we are not expecting these temperatures to go very far.
12:45 pm
they will stay close to 51 for next several hearst before they start to fall off later on tonight. in terms of the rain itself, future tracker six between now and 3:00 o'clock shows you that it still looks like it is probably past philadelphia by two and then later on in the evening hours it drops down south of fail with perhaps more rain coming back in, later in the evening hours. but, the afternoon is where we will see most of the improvement. cloudy skies in the lehigh valley. rain in the process of ending right now. we have a drizzle, drop, spray on your windshield coming up off the wet road. high of 50. down the shore cloudy skies and pretty damp down the shore holding on to that rain until later around dinner time tonight. 50 degrees the high there as well. fifty-one is the high in philadelphia cloudy skies, damp conditions that rain tapering off early to mid afternoon and then further south you go from philadelphia , the longer you are dealing witt. thirty-eight is overnight low. clearing out to some degree overnight. bit cooler. winds picking up a little bit n terms of the minneapolis, well, it is going to be a cold commute, heading out there over next several days and
12:46 pm
especially toward end of the week. tuesday travel day to avoid if you can because there could somebody snow out in minneapolis on tuesday. and then by thursday, friday, bitter cold, temperatures with highs in the single digits and wind chills below that. it is now looking like there is a lit built of quote unquote improvement for super bowl sunday in minneapolis. tailgaters will get 21 degrees for afternoon high. cloudy skies, flurries possible and then move indoors and then you don't to have worry about any of that. big game coming up on sunday though, a big event for the city and hopefully it end happily for everybody, here, not up there. not in new england. fifty-one. cloudy skies. damp conditions today with that rain gradually heading south through the region and then, drying out, later this afternoon in philadelphia and eventually down the shore. increasing cloud on monday, 47 , at night there could be rain, quickly changing over to snow and light snow, it is possible on tuesday morning, and probably not a lot, maybe an inch in some spots but the timing is bad for the tuesday morning commute. lit slimry possibly tuesday morning.
12:47 pm
then we will dry out. thirty-seven the high in the afternoon. sunny and chilly 36 degrees on wednesday, and 50 mostly cloudy, and, rain arriving overnight and spills into friday morning and probably changes over to at lee a little bit of snow. we have the accu weather alert for tuesday on the morning commute. friday important possibly slippery conditions in the evening commute and a high of 39 on friday. saturday, sunny, cold, high of 31 degrees. and that would appear on the surface to bode ill for eagles parties, right, real cold, right? no. sunday afternoon we will improve and new we have a shot of maybe like 41, 42 for a high which wouldn't be bad getting ready to head over tour pregame celebrations. >> pretty good. >> thanks, david. opera philadelphia is kicking off second half of the season with the philadelphia premiere of an international sensation. karen rodgers has more in this weeks six abc love the arts. >> ♪ >> reporter: written on skinnies hailed assentry's most successful opera debuted

12:52 pm
"action news" bob brooks is live with all of the excitement and bob, this is last chance for folks to offer their support and encouragement in person. you can see them and hear them chanting right now. >> ♪ >> reporter: hi there, nydia and gray. people down here are greeting the eagles. they are here. and, they are headed to minneapolis for super bowl lii let me step out of the way here to show you, try to fight against a pretty good sized crowd that has formed here outside of the fence and you can see the players right there on the stairs getting up into their plane. i was just out in minneapolis, earlier this week, about a two her flight, one hour time difference out there, it is a little bit colder to say the very least out there but they are prepared. i was in the locker room, yesterday, the final media opportunity with the players in the locker room before they flew out today, and they were just talking about staying focused having a later-like
12:53 pm
focus and ignoring the noise. i spoke with chris long he had been to the super bowl before, he was telling me that his message to the younger players who have not been to this is to you might to have come across sort of like a jerk to some people because you just want to severalties with any distractions that they might have, out there for the super bowl. so again, they will try to treat it like any other game, but, hard to because it is for the biggest game that is there , highest steaks, but a lot of excitement down here, a lot of the fans, you can hear doing eagles chants, there is not a single person down here that i can tell you this much that doesn't think they are bringing home the lombardi trophy to broad street in one week from today, guys, back to you in the studio. >> ducis was saying earlier today he, brian, sharrie, they are in minneapolis. they are in that hanger where plane will fly into in minneapolis. jamie apody is at the hotel
12:54 pm
and ducis said this is very much like a business trip for eagles. they have a lot of work to do. jamie apody's live, tell us what you are expecting? >> okay. >> reporter: well, nydia we are expecting eagles to get here around 5:00 o'clock our time there, and when they do get here i think they will be hit with the reality check that they are actually in the super bowl. team headquarters here is all done it with eagles logos and it says welcome eagles nfc champions and you can see all sorts of the super bowl lii rowing owes and big security presence at team headquarters. one of the things that is perfect to point out here is the eagles, they made a lot of work this season and they have played very well on the road but one of the things they are not used to is waiting a long time once they get to their destination. they arrive in a city on saturday, game on sunday and then they play. now, the game is in the for another week. we wish it could be played today or tomorrow, so that
12:55 pm
will be the big key here is how do they maintain their focus. there will be a lot of distractions, all sorts of hoopla, hype surrounding the super bowl. all sorts of the mandated team events and availabilities and the media night tomorrow night and that is the key is what will they do for an entire week here. how do they stay on their schedule, stay on pace, stay focused on football and not get distracted. that is what chris long and lagarrette blount, guys been here, has been the biggest difficulty for these young players to do is to try to drawn out that ought and focus on football. that being said doug pederson said earlier in the week he left 15 percent or so of the game plan to be installed right here in minneapolis so they have no choice. he didn't install the whole game plan in philadelphia they have a lot to do here in minneapolis. they will do that behind me, at this team headquarters, they will be having their team meals here, their team meetings here, they will be hold being walk through here's and right adjacent is mall of america where they will team availabilities on tuesday,
12:56 pm
wednesday, thursday. i think that is the key here for the eagles because once they touchdown in minneapolis we have got an entire week before they play the game, what are they go to go do and how will they stay focused is guys. >> we should mention that the eagles face patriots back in 2004 for super bowl 39. they lost that, 24-21 when they faced them then. how much pressure is on this team right new to bring back that trophy. >> reporter: gray, everyone knows we don't have a super bowl championship in philadelphia it is one thing that that missing. folks have been dying for it. people have lived their entire lives, generations, wanting to see a lombardi trophy back to philadelphia the fact that they are playing the same team that broke our hearts 13 years ago, just add to the story, and odd to that the fact that patriots still have the same coach and quarterback still playing at this level, tom brady, bill belichick it is
12:57 pm
uncanny. so yes, is there so much that goes into this. in the only did eagles want to bring that super bowl trophy back to fail but they also want to beat those guys, and broke their hearts 13 years ago tom brady, bill belichick is there so much hatred for patriots. i talked to jeremiah trotter on that team earlier in the week and he told me he still has not watched the super bowl game. he has not allowed him to wear his nfc champion ship ring because it hurts so bad. he said if this current team is able to do it and win, maybe then he will be able to go watch the game, and he participated back in 2004/05. all of his teammates feel that way too. they so badly wanted to win for our city that hopefully this team can bring back redemption. >> redemption time, thanks. >> lets go back out to bob brooks the atlantic aviation. it looks like last are boarding the game right now. this is their last time that they will be able to wish the eagles their support and their encouragement in advance of
12:58 pm

12:59 pm
book to read or something. >> reporter: how about you girls any message to the team as they fly out there. >> 90 percent of america wants the eagles to win and in one wants patriots to win. only people that want patriots to win is the nfl commish inner. >> reporter: hang on that is patriots have a little conspiracy theory give me your last big go eagles cheer so they can hear while doors are still opened. >> e-a-g-l-e-s, eagles. >> bring it home. >> wow. >> reporter: all right guys very exciting time. another look at the plane just a few hours away, i was just out there earlier this week. city of minneapolis is doing an incredible job to set up for the team when they come out there, and i know about a half hour ago, hour ago brian taff was talking about that minneapolis, minnesota nice ness. it really is. they were a little salty at first because we had to get
1:00 pm
through minnesota to get out to minneapolis but this is something they have comes to terms with that and didn't speak to one person out there who wanted to see patriots win , like that young woman just told me 90 percent of the country according to her everybody else is pulling for bird. >> make such a good point, we want to get back out to jamie at eagles hotel in minneapolis i was going to ask you what kind of reception they are expecting from minnesota, jamie. >> reporter: well, i think it is mixed because eagles beat them, the vikings so there is that. but what they have going for it, and, and, reception either folks are very, very nice here in minnesota and they pride themselves on that which is pretty special. we are standing here waiting for all of the hoopla to start eagles taking off. back in philadelphia a
