9:18 am
50s, about average for this time of year. we'll expect clouds and temperatures just a few degrees off the rest of the area once you get to the coast lines and warmer temperatures north and west. that's what happens through the afternoon. we spin this weather wheel. >> taking it in the low 50s this afternoon, high of 52. after sunset, temperatures fall back into the 40s pretty quick. clouds move in tonight and we're expecting rain. i mentioned the water temperature because when we get an easterly wind, onshore flow, that's air coming from over the water. if you have temperatures in the upper 40s for the water, that's the kind of cool air that's going to be moving in. that's why we stay cooler in those areas today and also the moisture and cloud cover reaches those places more quickly. thinner clouds back here to the north and west allowing for the temperatures to go up just a little bit higher. rain coming in from a low pressure system down to the south and also energy making its way from the west. as those two combined, we're
9:19 am
up tomorrow, but also rain to come down. so we'll make some consensus as we go into the workweek of needing an umbrella, but temperatures more mild. tonight it's mostly cloudy and after midnight the rain develops. right through the commute tomorrow, there is drizzle, spotty rain showers. another round comes in for the afternoon before we finally say goodbye to that. tuesday and wednesday look great. both are very seasonal and lots of sunshine. for today, breezy sun breaks this afternoon, 52 degrees. overnight, 42 with rain can and and drizzle developing. tomorrow temperatures are pushing the upper 50s. there is enough of that mild air coming p in that it will be a little more comfortable, but showery at times. there is tuesday and wednesday with temperatures in the mid-50s, seasonal, just maybe a degree or two above the averages
9:20 am
the workweek. thursday, we get warm. 70. but showers could turn into thunderstorms with that weather pattern. 57 on friday and saturday a high of 64. the accuweather seven-day forecast, this is the last week of march in to april. and a little rain could do us some good as we get into the blooming. the overnight lows which are sometimes pretty critical with blooms and flowers happening, they look like they hold steady for this week. >> not too shabby. >> good luck with your golden eggs. >> thanks, amy. the faa is investigating a very close encounter between a drone and a small plane in new jersey. officials say it was getting ready to land at mon mouth executive airport when the piloted reported seeing the drone. the plane was 2,000 feet in the air and did not have to take any evasive action to avoid that drone. we are hearing more and more close
