11:19 am
and we are five degrees warmer than yesterday. 70 in bensalem. only 60 in lancaster. 62 in reading. reading got up to 79 yesterday. nowhere near that today. it is going to be into the mid 70s, perhaps, in southern delaware and parts of south jersey. this is the area of showers. it's not moving quickly. so it does two things. it comes in more slowly and the rain lasts longer when this kind of thing happens. and you can see it's not quite into berks county yet, not quite into the poconos. it's taking a while. the futurecast -- this is another computer model here -- shows it coming in to parts of berks county and the poconos by noon and then as we go through the afternoon, it gradually spreads to the east. this may be exaggerating it a bit. it gives you an idea of the
11:20 am
timing. here is 4:00 across parts of the i-95 corridor and even some northern and western areas. by 5:00, it's starting to move east of the delaware river. and as we go through the evening, it starts to move offshore. it's just one band of showers with a cold front. somewhat colder air coming in behind it. but the real cold air is going to take until the weekend. as you can see, we have two areas of low pressure. this storm is going to develop off the east coast. but it's going to wait for this one to join up with it. so as we go into friday, trick or treat time, we are in between storms. we may actually get pretty lucky for halloween. but not necessarily for the weekend. for today, cloudy and mild with afternoon showers moving through. high temperatures up near 70 degrees. and the seven-day forecast, it's going to be a good bit cooler on
11:21 am
thursday. but that's still not that cold for this time of the year. now on friday, that is the trick or treat day. it's 58 degrees for the high. but by the time you are going outside for the trick or treating, it's dropping in through the 50s. it's chilly but not real cold. i do not expect much wind. and i do not expect rain for that. saturday is a different story. i expect some rain. i do expect the wind to increase. going to be kind of a nasty day. sunday, even windier with wind gusts over 40 miles an hour. windchills in the 20s sunday morning. the latest target of hackers, well, how about the white house? the cyber attacks were confirmed this morning. who may be behind this breach.

we have touched 70 in parts of the area. northeast philly, atlantic city international. 60 in lancaster. that's a sign of things to come, because a front is moving through. the wind direction is out of the northwest. while it's out the southwest at the shore. there's a front coming through. right along that front, that's where we are seeing the rain. it's really not moving very fast in our direction though. just barely getting into western berks county and a few showers getting into the poconos right now. it's going to take a while to come through, longer than we expected yesterday. you can see that as we go through the afternoon, it continues to move eastward. by 3:00, it's still north and west of the philadelphia i-95 corrid corridor. by 5:00, in this model, still has it intact, right over i-95

during the rush hour. after 6:00, it moves into coastal new jersey and then eventually offshore. once this does move offshore, we have dry and cooler weather. we have a complicated pattern, an extreme pattern setting up. another coastal storm developing over the weekend. we will wait for this disturbance to come in and combine with it to produce the stronger storm. watch what happens. on friday, as we go trick or treating, we are in the middle so we are lucky. see rain come back toward us as we head toward saturday morning? that's not exactly great news for saturday. for friday night, trick or treating, it looks dry. a little bit on the chilly side. but not windy. it could be worse if we waited
11:52 am
until saturday night. cloudy and mild this afternoon with showers. high temperatures near 70 degrees, but they will fall later in the day. don't be surprised about that. tomorrow, it is cooler. friday is chilly but nothing like the weekend. saturday and sunday both very cold, increasing wind saturday, wet on saturday morning and windchills into the 20s by sunday morning before we warm up next week.
