snow? always have backups, especially if that situation. >> i'm with you. >> how do you feel about some spring weather, guys. >> i think we're all on the same page. >> i think all on the same page. there are a lot of folks longing for cold weather of the just won't happen. we have to deal with the cards we're dealt. and you might as well make the most of it. >> now i've seen a lot of pictures say from some of the eyewitness weather watchers, for example, the buds already beginning to blossom out there, whether it is on the trees, or the daphodils starting to shoot-out from the ground. it is crazy, about this time of year you begin to see that. but, there you have it. this may end upgoing down as one of the if not the mildest february that we've ever record recalled here in philadelphia. so we will see how we ends up. regardless very warm air in place for the next couple of days. we take you outside here, start things off by taking a shot from central park library, we do have shot of the ben franklin, or the franklin institute here. and looks like there is still little hint of cloud cover. sun trying to break out from that. we will end up with very pleasant afternoon all things considered. temperatures definitely beginning to rebound as we had
anticipated. it will continue to climb right up until about 3:00 p.m. where we probably end up peaking into the low 60s. meanwhile up next, storm scan3, showing yes signs of life. warmfront lifting in. again, a look over the last few hours, see the clouds trying to disperse. we did have couple of showers early this morning. those have since lifted away to the northeast. and now just left with the linc err clouds, which will continue to break. meanwhile all the way out to the west coast, which at this point, when you have storm system over the inter mountain west, peaks of the mountains kind of mess up the radar. you won't necessarily see really good organization on a west coast storm system. but eventually this will pull out from the front range, really show signs of development, and eventually become our next big story, in terms of wet weather. but i say for now the big story continues to be the warmth. meantime, take a look what happens in the next couple of hours, you can see how the skies really brighten up here toward evening. we end up with probably sun glare. trying to travel westbound, maybe on the turnpike to get home this evening. but cloud up again tomorrow
another disturbance, tomorrow evening, especially, may inched up with a shower, rumble every thunder, then see what's starting to unfold friday. we will not see snow. simply going to be too warm. but his is a storm that will bring in next round of some showers, possibly spotty one friday, but specially saturday. then into the afternoon and evening. here's where we currently stand. fifty-three at our airport, well off to the south here, well into the seven # zero's in charlestown, mid upper 60s from nashville, rally, birmingham, some of the warmth will actually build our way. meanwhile outside we go, where looks like trying to find something with the metal detector here, in margate. clouds have definitely just sort of hungered in here. and even though they should break with time, still gloomy beginning to the afternoon. but it will become sunny everywhere, as the day progresses, 63 the expected hi, drop it back down to about 46 tonight which by the way is our normal daytime high. and that's our overnight low. meanwhile looking forward, warmest day of the pack, comes tomorrow. we will come awfully close to that, though, friday and saturday. so at least flirting with if
not actually at or seeing 70 degrees for three straight days, in february, and then afternoon and evening hours of saturday, some pretty decent rain and thunderstorms will rumble through here, at this point, i'm not expecting severe weather. i'll let you know it changes. big drop on the thermometer will finally come sunday. which means we need to enjoy the next couple of days. >> oh, bingo. >> katie will like this, several new frogs discovered in india. smaller than most coins in your pocket. the seven new species found after five years of searching in a mountain range, southwestern india, the frogs measure only about two to 15 millimeters long. unfortunately, scientists say, they may be in danger, and facing considerable threats. >> that is small but mighty. >> yes. >> i had a turtle once. i didn't have a frog. >> i bet our traffic reporter meisha has, every variety of turtles, frogs. >> yes. >> well, coming up: why it is
okay maybe even to have a margarita today if you are of age of course. >> any back smear no, i don't think so. coming right back, hopeful fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 150 meg internet. which means that in the time it takes mr. wagner to pour a 20oz. cup of coffee, tommy can download 40 songs, and jan can upload 180 photos. 12 seconds. that's the power of fiber optics. get 150 meg internet with equal upload and download speeds, tv and phone for just $79.99 per month for the first year. cable can't offer internet speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can.
later on. our nicole brewer spent time at saint francis cabrini catholic school to see what a marshmallow can teach us about our children's personal and professional success in the future. you know some days you really look forward to. >> some? for some today, my fall into that category, national margarita day. the tequila triple second lime juice concoction served on the rocks, taken frozen with or without salt. i don't have to tell you that. so, i prefer salt, so does katie, maybe you have sweet tooth. no word on why today is margarita day. >> let's just take it and run with it. >> who cares? i wish we had samples. that's "eyewitness news" at noon, i'm jim donovan. >> i'm rahel solomon. thanks for watching. >> "eyewitness news" continues, we're always on line at cbsphilly.com. the young and the restless is next. no, there are no margarita's un here. >> but now we can go get some. it is happy hour, right? >> ♪ >> ♪ >> ♪
