7:47 am
27 miles an hour through philadelphia, 10 miles an hour faster than that to the north. we pick up 44-mile an hour winds in the poconos around the 30 plus category as go through south jersey philadelphia, and then the winds die down. after midnight tonight they start to really die down. but even this evening, it will be very, very windy around here. temperatures, though not bad. without the wind, this would be a magnificant day. 50 degrees in philadelphia. let's make it that way anyway. forty-eight at the shore. 42 degrees in the poconos. we see some clouds along with everything else. and we see couple of these jumping around, don't be alarmed, they're leprochans. they mean no harm. sunday, 1:00 p.m., we have the parade, saint patrick's day parade winds pretty strong, and then, with that 50 degrees temperature today we drop to 35 degrees tonight partly cloudy, still windy out there. and then, as we go through the next couple every days, i think you will really like the temperature monday at 60 degrees. we column down, with maybe the
