tomorrow with temperatures that will be in the 50's, so that's what to expect out of the rain tomorrow. looking back, before we look ahead, we had those four record breaking days in a row, we won't break the record today though. average high is 44, we will still be above average with a high of 53. tomorrow it is rainy, and that rain will be heavy at times, but it is 59 degrees, and then we start out the day with temperature around 50 on friday. but as soon as that cold air rushes in, temperatures will fall throughout the afternoon, high of only 42 degrees on saturday. that is going to be a shock to the system, and sunday's pretty cold, as well. then we have warming trend monday and tuesday of next week. just in time for winter, bob kelly. >> just in time. good morning, 5:46 on this wednesday morning. hello south philadelphia. this is a live look at 26 and penrose, right at the base of the platt bridge here, and anybody leaving the airport headed in toward south philly, looking good, but starting to wake up, getting up and
