i almost called you david lee roth. >> you're not the first. completely different picture than what we saw yesterday. a warm spot today so far, delaware, 51. the cool spot, 48 in lehigh valley, pennsylvania suburbs. 51 in philadelphia. what's going to happen over the next twefr12 hours to the dempt? not much. in philadelphia, barely up to 60. trenton, barely up to 60. in reading, probably not up to 60, according to this computer model. wilmington, maybe not up to 60 degrees. remember how warm it was yesterday? well, you can see how warm it's going to be over the next seven days, all the time with our seven-day ticker down here for your area. not just the philadelphia forecast anymore. and you don't have to wait for it until the end of the weather
11:50 am
cast. and in new jersey, we have some places still in the 40s. wiigo lake, 49 degrees. several places near 50. clayton, turnersville at 51. medford at 51, lumberton at 51 degrees. it is chilly out there. even princeton, hopewell township, florence, mt. laurel, a lot of places at 50 degrees right now. it's not going to warm up a lot unless we get sunshine. the only sunshine is just north of allentown now. it may creep down just enough so that parts of lehigh valley see it, but i don't think it's going to come all the way down to philadelphia. so it is much colder, and it's going to stay pretty cold. it was 86 yesterday. 62 for the high today, maybe. and then thursday and friday, we don't get out of the 50s. plus, we've got rain. take a look at that rain, with
11:51 am
the futurecast. and you can see some light showers or sprinkles during the afternoon, mainly in delaware, south jersey. not going to amount to much, but it's just not that pretty. we may clear out a little bit briefly tonight, and then the clouds from the next system come back tomorrow. here comes the rain. by midday, all through the afternoon, through the whole area. then that clears out. not really, because here comes the next area of rain. for friday, so thursday and friday are just going to be nasty days. the weekend is looking pretty wet. sunday, especially in the afternoon, as you can see, philadelphia to the suburbs, south jersey and delaware, and with the ten-day forecast, you can see this cold weather tomorrow and friday, saturday may be a little bit of a break, and then sunday it's going to be kind of critical, of course, for the blue cross broad street run.
11:52 am
by race time, 52 degrees. warming to 60 degrees towards the end of the race. and even more threats of rain for monday and tuesday of next week.

11:56 am
marathon, which is, oh, about ten miles more than she had trained for. >> about the fourth mile, i asked a woman i was running with how long it was, and she said it was about 13 miles. that's when i realized i think i was in the wrong group. uh-oh. well, she eventually figured it out, but decided, hey, just go for it. her mom was waiting at the 5k finish line, became a little distraught and frantic, but a police officer there found her and brought her to her mom. man, just tires you out thinking about that. all right, our chief here, glenn "hurricane" schwartz, is checking out the afternoon forecast. >> yeah, and tremendous difference from what we saw yesterday afternoon. we were in the mid 80s. we hads. today, it's going to be cloudy across much of the area. some sprinkles to the south. tomorrow and friday, we have rain throughout area. temperatures not getting out of the 50s, and then the weekend,
