11:50 am
59 for the high yesterday. the average high 74 today and tomorrow and maybe wednesday as well. in the 60s. not mid 70s. plus we have rain on the way coming in from the west. not during the day today or tonight but into tomorrow, and there we go in the afternoon. the computer model has some generally light rain moving in from the west. it will be cloudier and that will help keep the temperature down. then another area of rain potentially coming in on wednesday although some other computer models are moving this out much, much faster. we're going to be getting updates over the next couple of hours and we'll show you these new future casts coming up starting at 4:00 this afternoon. but then by thursday we certainly clear out and that will allow the temperature to go back up, at least a little bit. now tomorrow, different winds. southwest only 5 to 10 miles an hour. it will be cloudier and wetter.

bethlehem with some showers at 65 degrees. westchester 66 with showers. newtown, only 60 with some showers. mount airy, 60 with some showers. fairmount, 62. not an all day rain tomorrow but you're probably going to need the rain gear. haddon field at 62. trenton at 61 with the threat of showers. same story at the shore with temperatures in the 60s as well. so tomorrow a little bit of wet weather. tomorrow night and into wednesday a little bit of wet weather as well. you can see that here on the forecast over the next few days. temperatures do not get into the 70s. lehigh valley down to 41 degrees tomorrow morning. so it's another chilly start but not as cold as what we saw this morning. the jersey shore it's just as warm as it is in the rest of new jersey today because of that west wind. that's a land breeze.
11:52 am
so the shore does not see the cooler weather, but you're going to see some showers tomorrow and some more coming in on wednesday. here's the ten-day outlook. where are those mid 70s? later on in the week. so wednesday only 64. thursday we dry out into the 70s. friday into the 70s. we've got another system potentially coming in over the weekend with some showers saturday and maybe even into sunday but it's not going to be 59 degrees like it was yesterday. and you can see more temperatures in the 70s as we go into early next week. we'll be right back.
