bottom of the screen. not just in philadelphia. in the burbs and delaware and south jersey. 62 degrees in philadelphia. 60 in the burbs with a peek of sun. raindrops on the cameras here in south jersey. we do have some scattered shower activity there. lehigh valley, plenty of cloud cover at 62 and delaware right now. we're looking at the ballpark. not bad there with plenty of cloud cover but mild conditions at 62 degrees. so what we can expect today, well, we have sort of a half and a half. we've got a soggy morning, but then we should be drying out later on today. we're looking for a high temperature of about 70 degrees in philadelphia. but again, those scattered showers are likely this morning before the system gets out of here. but high temperatures, 67 out in the burbs. 69 down in south jersey. which is kind of interesting. we like to see it a little cooler usually. 69, not doing too badly.
6:40 am
cool spot will be le high valle. 71 the high temperature in delaware. radar right now is showing us just where the rain is. we can see dry spots in trenton, philadelphia, wilmington, atlantic city, cape may. really not getting any rain right now. however, to the west we do have plenty of moisture as the system continues to move west to east. so we'll be watching the system come right through over the next couple of hours. so if you do have an event or an activity outdoors this morning, you want to take along the umbrella, or maybe just wait it out. it is a quick-moving system. but of course, as we see the movement of the system, we can anticipate that the jersey shore and southern delaware will be the last areas to see the scattered showers later today. so all in all we're not looking for a washout. sunshine later on. a viral video that hit the internet three months ago is still causing problems for a doctor who was caught on tape
6:41 am

[ bleep ] [ bleep ]. >> hmm. we have new information this
6:45 am
morning in this attack on an uber driver by a miami doctor. she has now been fired by the hospital where she worked. the video posted on youtube shows the doctor screaming profanities at the uber driver, hitting him in the face and demanding a ride. the doctor has apologized since the video surfaced. two elderly boaters are recovering today after being rescued by the coast guard when their boat got stuck in the mud at the jersey shore. a crew from the atlantic city air station ended up hoisting the men to safety after their boat ran aground in the maurice river. they were first spotted thursday afternoon but they wanted to wait for a high tide to refloat their boat. that didn't work and rescuers in boats weren't able to reach them so a helicopter swooped in to pull them to safety. they're doing okay. all right. we'll go ahead and check your neighborhood forecast right now. temperatures are on the mild
6:46 am
side. part of our weather story, of course, the scattered shower activity but also the mild temperatures. if you go to the bottom of your screen there, you see your 7-day forecast. as we move through the area, though, temperatures mainly in the low 60s. we'll close in on delaware and see what neighbors are doing there in terms of temperatures. talliville at 61. 63 right now in wilmington. reedy point 62. odessa, 62. we'll head further south and we can see temperatures really not changing much. even as we get closer to row hoeb ott. in the 60. areas are dry. but scattered showers moving through the area. have the umbrellas handy if you head out. radar showing us just where the rain is right now. delaware mainly dry. south jersey mainly dry. there is a large area of precip right here to the west. it is poised to move west to east. as we move on through our saturday morning we can expect to see these sort of popup,
6:47 am
light-variety scattered shower activity as this piece of the system sort of fills in and moves off the coast. that's going to take a little while. so that's why i keep saying our saturday is sort of like the story of half and hofalf. scattered showers this morning, but we're looking for some clearing later on. we'll put it into motion and show you future cast at 9:30. we start to see the infiltration from the west of the scattered showers here. you see trenton and even philadelphia, wilmington, darker green indicating heavier scattered showers moving through. that starts to make a push mid-morning. by noontime, 12:30 according to this model that we get the heavier rain coming through. look down here in cape may. could be rumbles of thunder with those areas of orange and yellow. it's a quick-moving system, so we are not anticipating any major flood problems.
6:48 am
it will be moving through midday. meanwhile, back here in the lehigh valley in the western suburbs, we'll be drying out. we see that the coastline will be the last to get the lingering showers. as future cast shows us some residual popups left behind later tonight. everybody else has already dried out. so it's a half-half kind of day for sure. we're looking for a high temperature today of 70 degrees. we'll take you to tomorrow. look at that. bright sunshine for philadelphia. high 70. and come monday, boy, temperatures take a ride upwards to close to 80 in the suburbs by monday. tomorrow, again, another nice, dry day with temperatures in the upper 60s but soaring to 78. and then here we see in the lehigh valley today, 65, a little cooler. once the scattered shower activity gets out of here most of the day will be sun and clouds up in the lehigh valley. tomorrow nothing but sun. look at monday. close to 80 degrees.
