tomorrow's big event, but in the meantime, we'll send it back to you. >> in the meantime, let's check in on the forecast for the days to come in the draft. glenn. >> aaron was wearing a winter coat, wasn't she? you're not going to need that tomorrow for the rest of the weekend. it was cloudy all day today. first peaks of sunshine in the lehigh valley, but not much. the farther west you are, the thinner those clouds are. and we actually have a couple of places near 70 degrees in the lehigh valley and in burks county. 70 in blandon, 70 in leonardsville. .pretty close to 70, sinking spring and leesport. all these numbers are warmer than philadelphia or points to the south where the clouds have been thicker for a longer period
of time. we're ending the month of april and it's certainly going be one of the warmest ever projected. right now it's projected to be the second warmest based on the forecast for the last of the month. allentown is projecting a new all-time record. atlantic city, a new rawle-time record for the warmest april ever recorded. and these weekend pics are certainly going to help. >> but back to the west, it's sunshine as this upper air storm moves out and it does not move very fast when it's caught up like this. and when you get those kind of big swirls, they always move slowly. and very often more slowly than the computer model suggests. >> there we are during the night tonight. temperature is not dropping very much. .some of the clouds leaving. some areas of fog perhaps by morning. but we quickly warm into the 70s tomorrow with at least a little sunshine, even by noon time.
we're in the 70s by noon time and in the afternoon with more sun, upper 70s. some spots could touch 80 degrees tomorrow. tomorrow night, we have a weak system moving through. but by friday morning, that's moving out. we'll get into the 70s by noon again and probably get into the 80s by the end of the day. the neighborhood highs tomorrow, 81 degrees at redding. 77 in bethlehem. and you can see clouds in the morning, sun in the afternoon, a really nice day paired to what we've seen. new town, 77 fwres for the high. mt. airy, 77. watch what happens as we get closer to the shore. 77 degrees in haddenfield. and now 68 degrees in atlantic city. so it will be cooler at the shore, even warmer across the entire area friday and saturday. >> all right, glenn, we continue
