how nice. and then, a cold front comes through here. that knocks our temperatures back, with maybe a spring early on tuesday. into the lower 50's, and then, a lot colder after that. unfortunately, we see, a return to some cold. not nearly as extreme as it was, but still cold. going through the day finds some clouds out there not a big deal, so it is cloudy, so there are sun breaks. it is the winds, i think that's going to be the issue. but tomorrow, the winds have died down. the temperatures are climbing. and we will be looking for nice day. i mention that front on early tuesday morning, maybe triggering a shower and couple of spots. but, not a big deal. just the chill-down that we will be finding after that. so starting the day on tuesday, maybe with a couple of rain showers. now, what you can do today. we've got wonderful parade today through philadelphia, but if you want to go to a pet event, we have that, too. one to 4:00 today, learn how to build a shelter for the philadelphia street cats, or any ferrell cats that might be in your area. and, try and help them out and also, help with the

we've seen over the last couple of mornings. and it is nice out there. we've got temperature let's try this one 42 degrees, and that's the temperature that bill is finding, naught broomall. and he says good to see the sun after all that rain yesterday. yes, but i'm afraid, some of his sun will be fading again we have 41 degrees temperature, and this is with michael real lee out in sanatoga says the rain is gone, but the winds is picking up. that is so definitely the trends for the day. as you go through the day these winds will be getting stronger and stronger, especially during the middle part of the day. and here's 42 degrees temperature, which seems to be kind after representative sample. we find out that out in lawrenceville pressure of 29.55. peter, thank you, very much, for getting up. and joining thus morning and letting us know what the weather is there. let's look at the shore shore looks pretty nice. we look at ocean city right now, we move along and the sun is out and people are walking along the boardwalk
riding along the board walk, it looks fit for a parade. but the parade isn't here. the parade is in philadelphia today. it will be cooler than the actual 50 degrees that we'll see because of the winds. now, out in reading some of the snow still has to melt. we've got to get rid of. >> this we have spring starting later friday. so we've got to get rid of this. and i think we will. but notice the clouds out there. that's not helping a lot. but still these temperatures are well above the freezing mark, that will be really aiding in getting rid of any stubborn snow pile that you might finds any place. there are very few every them left. forty-four out at the airport in philadelphia. forty-two in trenton. forty-one in allentown. we've got 44 down in dover. forty-one in millville this morning. and, the sky conditions, they are not great but they're not horrible. we're not looking at any precipitation coming down out of this. this to the north is what we dealt with yesterday. colder up there. they're getting snow out of it, we saw the rain, but it is now gone. we have the clouds, and kind of a carved out area right like this, now as the winds
start to funnel down today you will find these temperatures feeling a lot colder than the actual 50 degrees that we'll get. wind will be gusting, past 30 miles an hour, and in some cases, even as high as 40 miles an hour. windchills today probably staying in the upper 30's, most of the parade, and most of the day, as you're outside. future weather we put this into motion, are there some clouds out there from time to time today? yes. we can deal with that. though. at the end after winter, what are couple every clouds? then tomorrow morning it starts niles, but then we start to see few clouds filter in here. but the temperatures start to climb. upper 50's, to 60 degrees tomorrow, which will be nice, and this, 4:00 a.m. tuesday that's part of a frontal system that's coming through. very light spotty rain showers, clouds otherwise that moves on through by 6:00 a.m., according to present timing, through the philadelphia area, then it is gone. no big deal. but the bigger deal is the colder air that's it is going to start ushering in. middle of the week starts to
get colds once again not as cold, how much. and it is all about the degrees. fifty in philadelphia today. shore, 48. the poconos 42, every single location, it will be windy, and it will feel colder than the actual temperature that you see here. winds right out of the northwest. sunrise at 7:13. our sunset is at 7:08. i hope you're enjoying these later sunsets. we have temperature tonight of 35 degrees the skies will start to clear out little bit later on, and the winds finally start to die down. but it takes until after midnight for them really to start to die down. now, monday, we put 06 degrees, does it stop at 59 maybe, but close enough. looks like the warmest day of the upcoming week. tuesday, as the front comes by early in the morning you might get early shower, no big deal, 52 degrees breezy on tuesday though. and then, by tuesday night those temperatures drop to 28 degrees, that's cold start to wednesday and wednesday's high only 42 degrees. we get some sunshine, but we get below freezing again on wednesday night.
