5:49 pm
nothing can get in when this big high is overhead. it's not going anywhere for awhile at least until we get the threat for yet another coastal low and that comes in as we head through the middle part of next week. beasley just talked about the friday night lights game of the week. let's take a look at your forecast for it. boy, it is going to be a really nice night for football, really nice night for the phils as well taking on the braves tonight. 73 degrees at kickoff with that clear sky it will drop quickly into the 60's tonight so you may want to bring a light jacket or a sweatshirt a perfect september evening for football action. overnight clear and comfortable, bottoming out around 57 degrees. saturday sunshine, just a gorgeous day, 82 degrees a-blight blue sky just like today all day long. f if you're in the poconos thinks look fantastic, mid 70's just a little cooler with a few more clouds on monday and that's the story here in the city as well. here's a look at your seven-day forecast. a beautiful weekend. sun and clouds monday and then tuesday, wednesday, thursday more includes and the chance for a couple of showers especially tuesday and wednesday. so, enjoy this weekend while
