>> yeah a lot of warmth but now we're going to be getting into that hug your honey weather. >> yeah. it will get a lot colder around here. i should say cooler. look at mark street pretty quiet this evening. but mild. temperatures still hanging out in the upper 70s the high today into in philadelphia. that tied a record. winds out of the north now and that's very important to our future as far as the temperatures concerned out of the north at 15 miles an hour in philadelphia. the same in wilmington. in allentown northerly wind at 12 that is a cool wind for us. so all the heat will stay to the south. you see those green and yellow contours that means temperatures backing into the 70s. we will be struggling in many places to get close to 80 degrees over the next couple of days. but the big story is going to be friday morning. i think that's what everybody will be talking about. friday morning will be the coolest morning in months. since the beginning of the summer. when we'll be waking up to temperatures in philadelphia that are quiet cool in the 50's as you head toward the lehigh valley in the 40s. this model is saying in the poconos around 50 but i think
we'll be in the 40s there. so waking up in the fours north and west. the 50s for most of the south and east and closer to the coast because of those warmer ocean water temperatures in the 60s. but it will feel obviously like a little bit of a shock to the system. so we have the cool down but the problem we still don't have the rain. scott we need the rain. help my garden. can you help me. >> we really do. kathy arc lot of lawns across the area certainly parched and dry as we look at ultimate doppler a couple of sprinkles with that cold front moving out of mercer county now into sections of ocean county. but that's about it. let's talk about the deficit. the rain update for philadelph philadelphia. abnormally dry. the last measurable rainfall you have to head back to september 1st for the month. we've seen less than half an inch of rain in philadelphia and take a look at this statistic. the last inch or more rainfall for philadelphia you have to head back to july 25th. so we desperately need the rain. look at the drought watch. this issued by the department of
environmental protection. you can see it includes philadelphia county, delaware county, chester county, north and west the lehigh valley and you can see because of the lack of precipitation and the declining ground water over the next several days low rainfall chances are next best bet, kathy are as we move toward the second half of the weekend. >> okay. here's hoping we know sunday an important day for lot of sports as well. but we need the rain. behind me franklin parkway looking just gorgeous tonight with temperatures falling into the 50s and 60s across the region so overnight in the city we're talking about 64 but the suburbs 59. partly cloudy, cooler, we're still in that north northwesterly wind flow that will keep it cool. tomorrow afternoon, nice. 79 degrees. that is a seasonal day in philadelphia. and as we look ahead at the exclusive fox 29 weather authority seven day forecast, the coolest start to friday. by the afternoon we rebound. saturday the better half of the weekend showers and storms possible late sunday maybe sprinkle or two monday. look what happens tuesday and
