12:19 pm
i swear to you just 20 minutes ago but when we go next we'll show the scene in a second to storm scan you'll see a hint of lingering cloud cover trying to roll in. so maybe a lingering sprinkle in couple of spots. center city and everywhere else starting to see things clear out. let's go next to a to have mentioned storm scan and take a peek. brunt of the snow it is basically at this point even offshore of ocean county. all in the clear from that. but you can see these lingering little pockets of clouds and maybe even a sprinkle just outside of delaware for example if you're travel its travels take you south on 95. zooming on out this whole thing is getting out of here in fact the entire eastern seaboard is free and clear. nationwide, zoom it's not looking bad either. high pressure building nicely by the way out in california and it's looking like really nice forecast for the super bowl weekend turn our focus to that very quickly. for super bowl 50 you're looking at 68 degrees and sunshine at kickoff not bad at levy stadium big game coming up. weather not expected to play any kind of roll whatsoever in that. we've got super weekend coming
12:20 pm
up for you all things considered back here at home now that this little system is moving on out, we end up with high pressure for the next two days much back into the 40s tomorrow. we are expecting sunshine perhaps a few additional clouds on sunday there's an area of low pressure developing off to our south. at this point it look like it will stay there and bypass us out to sea. we'll keep a close watch on that. then clouds begin to rebuild on monday. in advance of this guy probably just a clipper that brings very limited moisture but it does bring our potential to see a couple of rain or even snow showers as early as monday nig night. here's where we stand currently in the thermometer department. mid and up err 30s across the pine land areas out towards atlantic city 34 degrees. 42 at the airport and just off to the north some of the outlying suburbs into the lower upper 30 there is as well. it's chilly granted but at least it's clearing out. the snow we just saw it's really brightening out. we'll end up with those clouds thinning out for more sunshine 44 degrees for the daytime high officially. drop it down to a colder 30 degrees that means if there's any damp weather left over, you can see black ice.
