corbett along with u.s. senators bob casey, jr., and pat toomey were on hand for today's ground breaking. let's check back in with your fox 29 weather authority now. another beautiful day but we may have some changes on the way cooling down and maybe a little rain in our forecast. >> we might not make it out of the 50s for the high temperatures tomorrow. the cloud cover will move in and also the rainfall for friday and it could impact a part of the up coming weekend. but right now as we take a live look outdoors you can see we're looking at those clouds start to go kind of scream -- stream in and as far as the temperatures across the area, we are looking at those numbers right now right around 67 degrees. as far as ultimate doppler, though, you can see that rainfall it is certainly moving in to our area and we continue to follow some of the precipitation that's going to be on its way. there's the temperature right now outdoors. 67 degrees currently. winds out of the southwest at about 15 miles per hour. the sun will set this evening at about 6:30. so as we talk about that rainfall. it's headed in our direction. not tonight but during the day
5:50 pm
on friday. mostly cloudy skies, temperatures are going to be probably in the upper 50s to right around 60 for the high. then as we watch that rainfall arrive, here's lunch time we're cloudy, drizzle, showers across the area. look at 4:00 o'clock. still watching for pockets of rainfall to continue to just move toward the area. so if you're making dinner plans tomorrow, have the rain gear, have the jackets it will be chilly and also damp and dreary. friday night, 10:00 o'clock we're still looking at the clouds and rainfall across the area. drizzles and showers continuing saturday morning more of the same. what about saturday afternoon? big temple homecoming game. we're talking about clouds, there could be some showers early, but that rainfall starts to push a little farther to the south as well as to the east. moving the clock ahead by 5:00 p.m., we're still watching out for those showers down the shore as well as atlantic city but that drier air starts to nudge in saturday afternoon clearing us out. so cloudy and chilly for tonight. lows around 50 degrees.
5:51 pm
then tomorrow, cloudy, damp, chilly, temperatures only in the upper 50s to around 60. most of the rainfall arriving tomorrow afternoon and evening. the rainfall once again is going to linger through your saturday morning. we're talking rainfall totals a half an inch to an inch before all is said and done. once again, most of the rainfall will come to an end by lunch time on saturday. so what about that kickoff forecast? tulsa taking on the owls. we're talking an early shower chance. it will be cool. temperatures by kickoff around 59 degrees so take the jacket, sweater, you might want to take the poncho as well. we made it up to 70 degrees. that was the high testimony cher for today. the normal this time of year in the upper 60s. temperatures pretty uniform right now. mid to upper 60s across the area. but by tonight, 50 for the low in the city. mid 40s in the suburbs. tomorrow 60 degrees, if we can muster that. cloud cover, chilly, showers a arriving by the afternoon and sticking around for the first part of the day on saturday.
5:52 pm
sunday, cloud cover, cool, there might be an isolated shower moving in at the linc for the eagles game but let's hope not because the fans don't want the rain and neither does howard. >> no. you don't have a poncho. >> i don't have a poncho. now what am i going to do? >> it can't rain. >> okay. >> let's keep that it way. all right. yes the eagles look like they will have demeco ryans back on sunday. rain or in rain. but michael kendricks and chris polk did not practice and i'm told they're out for sunday's game. the smack talk is almost over. there will be a game on sunday night with the eagles playing the new york giants at the the linc. it's a game for first place in the division. eagles are four and one and some fans do wonder how. the quarterback is always a focus of the record for foot football team. in the case of nick foles many fans want to look at what's wrong but that's part of the job being a quarterback in the nfl. so really does nick foles think he doesn't get enough credit for wins and too much blame for the losses?
5:53 pm
>> when you sign up to play a position for young age you know that's part of it. i think the big thing you can't let it get to you. that's where i focus on what i need to focus on inside this building inside that locker room. everything outside is not personal to ya'll but i can't listen to it because that stuff that -- if you it put it in your head it's clutter and if you have a bunch of clutter in your head how are you supposed to go out there and play effectively. >> i don't want clutter in my head either. the new york giants quarterback eli manning is getting a lot of credit for the giants three straight wins. eli does take blame when he plays poorly. and he has really did early in the season. but now the offensive coordinator for the giants has a different offense. one in which the quarterback gets the ball out faster so that make it tough on the quarterback that is soft or actually easier on the quarterback that's soft because he doesn't get hit as much so the eagles have what they feel different ways to get to eli. >> he's getting rid of the ball quick and all timing thro throwe does a really good job the
5:54 pm
delivering the ball on time, and that takes hits off of him and he plays a lot better and a lot more efficient when he's not getting hit. >> getting pressure on him is going to be key. i think us disrupting the timing between hill and the receiver will be key. i think that us playing tight coverage on guys is going to be key. i think collectively as unit we have have to come together and get that job done collectively i think it's going to take 11 players this week and nothing less. >> all right. coming up sunday preview of eagles and giants on fox 29 "game day live" at 11:00. fox nfl sunday the noon followed by the double header the packers and dolphins at 1:00, cowboys and the seahawks at 4:25. all right. the flyers coming off that tough loss last night at boston played the home opener tonight again the sixers owner josh harris' new jersey devils. that's right. he owns them. the flyers had an optional 68 today off that tough game but the home opener adds for excitement for players and coaches every year. >> exciting not only for the players orphans.
5:55 pm
the organization, so it will be a lot of excitement in the building tonight. guys will be pumped. >> a lot of emotions to night. a lot of excitement so i think it will help us. we'll be revved up to go, and, you know, we need to, you know, get back at it and get a w tonight and rebound from last night. >> all right. today the ridiculous question of the day eagles will wear black jersey and black pants. so one reporter asked the question do the black jerseys make you meaner? really? you really asked that question. >> new york giants. >> right. >> going to make them meaner. okay. thank you. >> thanks, howard. >> all new at 6:00 o'clock surveillance video of two guys wanted for a big time burglary in philadelphia. they didn't steal cash. the big ticket items they allegedly walked away with. plus, a cold case that philadelphia police need your help to close. investigators say this surveillance video shows two men who are about to commit a murder nearly a year later with no arrests. nearly a year later with no arrests. the victim's family has a

6:00 pm
the verdict finding him guilty of first degree murder of a 10 month old baby and their grandmother two years ago he faces the site for his life in an unusual move the judge started the penalty phase of the trial a short time after the verdict was reached. that means jurors have begun the process of deciding whether he will be put to death. normal until would happen tomorrow but the defense is calling his mother to testify. she is on the stand right now. she returns to india tomorrow. she of course very very emotional essentially she is begging jurors to spare her son's life. now we spoke with the defense just short time after the verdict was read. >> as lawyer i would representing him in a different direction and hopefully would have come to at least save his life, and if not perhaps murder three, but that would have been dicey. it's a second degree murder case. in my opinion. but the jury did s
