tv NBC10 News Today Weekend at 9am NBC October 14, 2017 8:30am-9:31am EDT
back on the ice, the flyers home opener happens tonight at the wells fargo center. we'll hear from the players ahead of the new season. good morning. this is "nbc10 news today." it's 8:30 on this saturday. i'm rosemary connors. thanks for being with us. let's start with our weekend weather, a foggy morning across the area. here's a live look if you can see it at the philadelphia skyline where the dreary weather will start out our weekend. meteorologist krystal klei has the details in the first alert forecast. >> let's start with the picture you were showing, rosemary. we have low clouds which is why you don't see many building tops and we have patchy fog as well which is why it's all hazy down to the delaware river. the mix of the two is making it look very dreary out there this morning. the thing is if you look at radar and satellite the rain itself isn't present much at all across our area. few sprinkles down in parts of sussex county and a few sprinkles we could see today over parts of south jersey and
delaware, but overall a fairly dry day in terms of actual rainmaking it to the ground. we'll still have clouds in place through much of today. mostly cloudy conditions, just a few peeks of sun in the afternoon. as for temperatures right now we're at 62 in trenton, wilmington, philadelphia, allentown even at 60 currently. these temperatures in the 60s will be on the rise. we're talking temperatures that make their way closer, well, to the 70s. as we get into our afternoon. pick up to 80s tomorrow, sharp drop to monday. we'll talk about why we're seeing this roller coaster effect in just a bit. all right, breaking news, the man who jumped from an upper floor of an apartment building on fire in philadelphia is now at the hospital. "nbc10 news toda nbc10 was on the scene where crews responded to a rubbish fire around 7:30 this morning. they put out the flames in minutes. investigators are calling this fire suspicious. we're working to get more details on that and on the
victim's condition. happening now on the pennsylvania turnpike, there is a major detour on a stretch of the northeast extension. if you are traveling north this weekend, maybe to check out the foliage or some local fall festivals, you'll have to get around the closure. and it will take you some time. nbc10's katy zachry is live in upper macungie. katy, what are you seeing, or not seeing, out there on the turnpike this morning? >> reporter: yeah, rosemary, behind me this is a stretch of the turnpike in both directions outside of the detour that lasts until monday morning. so from what we can see the traffic on this stretch of the turnpike that's open to traffic is running fine. but let's be frank, this detour -- this road closure, is a nightmare for so many people. especially if you headed to or from the poconos for this prime leaf peeping season, we're talking 40 miles of the pennsylvania turnpike closed to all traffic. closure lasts until 4:00 a.m. monday. and we have a map for you where that detour's highlighted in
red. the blue is a detour that takes you around onto roads like 22, 33 and interstate 80. -- valley interchange. going southbound you'll be detoured beginning at the pocono interchange. it's all so crews can replace an aging bridge on the turnpike. we did talk to some drivers this morning who left early to account for delays. so it was an inconvenience, no question. >> it was. the timewi wise it's not much different, however different type of driving. and we would have gotten on the turnpike much earlier. >> reporter: and by different type of driving that man means that he was forced on more local roads, two-lane roads that have stoplights and stop signs that further adds to the delays. coming up in our next half hour you will hear from a family we met this morning headed from here back home to ohio. and they had no idea 40 miles of
their trip was closed to traffic, if you can imagine that, rosemary. >> yeah, going to take them a little while to get back to ohio. thanks for that, katy. new this morning, philly police are looking for the gunman who shot and killed a man sitting in a car. nbc10 was on the scene on benner street in wiisinoming. police say the shooter opened fire at close range and then took off. officers are now talking to witnesses who heard those shots. philly police are also busy this morning tracking down leads in a deadly hit-and-run. this happened in port richmond on allegheny avenue. a driver hit and killed a man walking near tulip street around 2:00 this morning. police say as of this hour they do not have a description of the car involved. we're working to get more information on that and on the victim's condition. some parents in south jersey are calling for the school superintendent to resign over mold like this found inside their children's schools. the parents claim their concerns have not been addressed and that
there's been a cover-up. students in monroe township gloucester county were kept out of class all week because of the mold. last night the district announced that all schools except for holly glenn elementary will reopen on tuesday. the district gave the okay for the students at the other schools to return following mold testing and cleanup. some sections of certain buildings will remain off limits. last night dozens of parents held a closed door meeting at williamstown high school. one mother tells us she's having her sons tested. she wonders how her healthy 14-year-old missed nearly a month of class last year when the mold first surfaced. >> what's the one question you want answered? >> how they covered this up or why they covered it up. why wasn't this handled? >> are you calling for the superintendent to step down? >> absolutely. absolutely. i 100% support him being gone. >> on that note this online petition is demanding the superintendent and other top school officials step down. nbc10 has reached out to those officials to get their side of the story. we have yet to hear back.
we will keep you posted when we do. now to the wildfires burning out west in california. for the first time crews battling these flames are reporting a bit of progress toward containing the fires. but strong winds are expected in the area today and that could fan the flames forcing them to spread even more. the blazes have killed 36 people making this the deadliest series of wildfires in california history. nearly 6,000 homes and businesses have been destroyed. more help is now on the way. crews from nine states, canada and even australia have been pouring into california. >> where you at? >> right here! come on. >> new body camera video shows a sheriff's deputy running into a burning neighborhood to help save a woman in a wheelchair. you can see he and another deputy lift the woman into an suv to take her to safety. the first deputy then drove through the neighborhood warning people about the dangerous flames. one couple surprised by the speed of the fire survived by
jumping into a neighbor's pool. they stayed in the water for six hours as the wildfires destroyed the neighborhood around them including their own home. >> and then the fire got here and that tree behind us went up. and when that tree went up, it was hot. that's when we got into the pool. >> the couple says they did not get any official alert about the fire. by the time they realized it was coming, it was just too late for them to leave. today, in beverly hills, leaders of the motion picture academy will hold an emergency meeting about harvey weinstein. the oscar winning producer is facing a barrage of sexual assault allegations, some dating back decades. weinstein is a lifetime member of the academy. board members will discuss the possibility of revoking his membership. police in charlotte have arrested a panthers fan who attacked a man at thursday night's game between carolina and the eagles. want to give you a quick warning the video you're about to see is
violent. cell phone video shows the suspect arguing with an older fan in the row behind him before punching him. the victim and witnesses say the attacker and his girlfriend were standing throughout the entire game and that led to the argument. i doubt that will happen at tonight's game when the flyers skate in their home opener against the washington capitals at the wells fargo center. the orange and black split their first four games on the road. faceoff tonight is just after 7:00. you can catch the opener on nbc sports philadelphia. little bit later on today, this afternoon, 7-year-old cancer survivor leah still will share her story and inspire girls in delaware. she will be speaking at the girls can do anything conference at the grace united methodist church in wilmington. leah as you may remember is the daughter of nfl player and wilmington native devon still. we've been following her journey through beating cancer. she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of 4. she is now in full remission.
8:38 right now on this saturday. coming up, questions after captivity. the new details we're learning about the pennsylvania woman and her family held hostage by the taliban. plus, moving up the ranks. experts are weighing in on where philadelphia stands when it comes to landing amazon's second headquarters. and here comes the blitz. we'll take you around the region for all of last night's high school football action. all right. here's a live view looking over our region. a few showers off the shore now. we still have cloudy conditions. temperatures though are on the rise. we'll look at how high they go today compared to tomorrow coming up. plus, this is a live view from avalon, definitely a gray start across our entire area.
of southern delaware and south jersey, but i think that anything that falls is going to be so light and short lived that if you forget it at home you'll be fine. you might want though a light morning jacket. layers though preferred because you'll probably peel some of those off as you get into the afternoon. temperatures will rise to the low and mid 70s, which should feel fairly nice. sunglasses not a necessity if the live camera view isn't obvious enough. it's fairly gray today. and you don't need the hair tie quite yet. it will be windy tomorrow though, then you'll want that. here's radar and satellite. wide view showing you the rain, the bulk of it is now starting to wrap around and off to the east. so that's pulling away from us, but still a few sprinkles are possible over the southern half of our viewing area today. let's go through the planner. so the temperatures are going to be moving from the 60s to right around mid 70s this afternoon. but that's as high as they will get, low to mid 70s. you see low 70s for the pennsylvania suburbs and the same can be said in the lehigh valley, low 70s what we will cap out at. delaware possibly 74, 75 for your high. mostly cloudy, just a peek of
sunlight. cloudy to mostly cloudy in new jersey and low 70s the best we will see along the jersey shore for today. warmer tomorrow though. we'll talk about that coming up. we'll see you shortly. coming up next, we'll introduce you to this week's wednesday's child. plus, putting in the work. how police officers and septa officers are pitching in to help two families rebuild their homes and their lives. and college football shocker. how a major upset last night could really rattle the rankings. after 8 years of chris christie, is kim guadagno the change new jersey really needs? guadagno is christie's hand-picked successor. says she's "proud to be part of the christie administration." guadagno was chris christie's right hand as our schools came under attack, critical services were underfunded, and our credit rating was downgraded...11 times. from the bridge to the beach, we've seen it all,
this week's wednesday's child is sponsored by mealey's furniture. just what you're looking for. this week's wednesday's child is a friendly young guy who loves animals and would also love to find a forever family to support and encourage him throughout his life. nbc10's vai sikahema introduces us to zach. >> one, two, three, go. >> 16-year-old zach is always on the move. >> this way. >> trying to keep up with him will keep you on your toes. even as we feed the giraffe at elmwood park zoo in norristown, montgomery county, what did you like best today about being here? >> i like and the giraffe. >> and the giraffe? >> yeah. >> could you tell me what kind of family you'd like to have? >> a family with a mom, a dad or i kind of want a family with two
daughters, two brothers -- >> in other words, a big family. naturally zach wouldn't mind pets. >> open your mouth. >> he obviously loves animals. >> zach is open to different families. he is open to a one-parent or two-parent household. he really does want siblings. and he also wants a dog. he -- i think he's open to every kind of family. just someone that could care for him and care about him, someone that could be there to support him throughout his life and into adulthood. >> zach's forever family will be supportive, give him guidance and provide a loving, nurturing environment. >> zach is very energetic. he's very enthusiastic. he really enjoys playing outside. he loves animals. he gets good grades in school. he really likes school.
so it's really becoming one of his strengths. it's great he's improved so much. >> zach is this week's wednesday's child. >> if you would like to make zach's dream come true or the dream of any wednesday's child, go to our website, nbc10.com, search wednesday's child. you can also call the national adoption center. that number 1-866-do-adopt. and we begin with another live camera view. this one is from easton, pennsylvania. what you see here is that gray sky it's just across the entire region. a bit ago it was avalon, we showed you philly. now we've got easton, all very cloudedly cloudy this morning with some patchy fog in place. little dreary out there. radar and satellite again, mostly bt you can is moving off to the east but the tail end could spark a few spotty showers over parts of delaware and south jersey too throughout the next handful of hours. i think especially by the afternoon hours that chance is really going to just drop off.
so here are the high temperatures for today. 74 in philadelphia. 73 in the suburbs and see a couple more 74 south jersey, delaware with that just isolated chance of a shower developing. and only a peek of sunshine possible as we get into the later afternoon hours. let me show you. this is the hour by hour model. go through the next few hours here and it's showing a sprinkle trying to make it north. i just don't think this is going to happen. i think it's going to be cloudy, but i don't think we'll see much in terms of raindrops. maybe a spritz here or there but that's about it. then go through the rest of the afternoon hours you see how you have clouds popping up here and there? that's the breaks for sunlight. just little peeks of sun in the afternoon and into the evening, little bit of shower activity lingering against the shoreline. as we go into tomorrow it will be windy. gusts 25 to 30 miles per hour. and notice where the winds come in from tomorrow, the southwest. we have winds coming in from the southwest, that's a warm air flow. that's going to change things up for us. so watch this. this is the hour by hour model we've got right now. and the cold front is going to
be sitting tomorrow to our west. so for us we'll be in something called the warm sector. what that means is it's the area where warm air moves in from the southwest ahead of a cold front. that will continue into the afternoon hours. we even see clearing conditions, sunshine mixed with clouds here, sunday going to be pretty nice. then we go overnight sunday. this is about 10:30, 11:00 p.m., the cold front starts to approach and we have a line of scattered showers rolling through. those will pass overnight. and then by early monday morning the front itself has passed, there's just some lingering spo spotty showers left. those will dry out quickly into monday and left with cooler conditions. today temperatures pick up a bit, tomorrow like i mentioned really warming up. 82 in philly. 80 in the suburbs and 78 in the lehigh valley. then the front passes, bam. look at that drop. almost 20 degrees, 6 3 in philly, 60 for the lehigh valley and a temperature of 64 in delaware. we'll talk about some of the events going on this weekend and what you can expect in terms of conditions outside coming up in
the next half hour. see you then. thanks, krystal. 8:49 right now on this saturday. also coming up, a berks county college football team loses more players over pregame demonstrations. but this time it wasn't about the national anthem. we'll explain. and next, highlights of our high school blitz game of the week plus the rest of the gridiron action from across the region.
third ranked penn state is off this weekend, but they will likely move up in the polls because syracuse upset number two clemson last night. did you miss this? here's what happened. at the carrier dome in new york syracuse used big plays to bury the tigers defense. the unranked orange pulled one of the biggest upsets in school history by three points. now here's some high school football action. it's time for the blitz.
another exciting week of high school football. let's kick things off with philly.com number two team in south jersey, millville, hosting hameton, right to the action. second quarter thunder bolts with the ball swing it to lawrence who rumbles down the sideline for a 16-yard score. that would put them up 30-0. millville rolls 49-14. st. augustine prep and holy spirit, prep's chris allen goes up top who takes it in for an 81-yard score. but it wasn't enough. holy spirit goes onto win 22-17. garden valley looking to stay perfect on the road. the jaguars in control from start to finish. thomas beaver going up the gut for the touchdown. they roll for shutout win 43-0. radnor hosting haverford. this one a defensive struggle. radnor with the ball. man for the sack, they shut down radnor 10-0.

saturday morning and we continue to follow the weekend closures on the pennsylvania turnpike. man, these are going to create some real delays. nbc10's katy zachry is live in the lehigh valley for an update. katy. >> reporter: rosemary, it's not something people want to hear waking up this morning, especially if they have plans to go to or come from the poconos on this fall festival weekend. a very busy stretch of the pennsylvania turnpike closed all weekend to traffic, cars, trucks, you name it. coming up, we'll have an update about how it's affecting people's travel plans. look at the temperatures right now. we're in the 60s to start. some spots are close to where they were yesterday afternoon. and that means another weekend warmup. we'll look at how high temperaturings go today and how much higher they are tomorrow coming up.
. right now on "nbc10 news today," we could detour that could add up to an hour to your trip. coming up, a live report on the pennsylvania turnpike project that has a stretch of the northeast extension blocked off. freed from captivity. we are learning more about what happened to the baby a pennsylvania woman first delivered while she and her family were held hostage by the taliban. talk about a damp and dreary start to our saturday. this is a live look at penn's landing towards the ben franklin bridge where you can see the cloudy skies will be with us for
much of the morning. but the weather will rebound. we've got those details in moments in the first alert neighborhood forecast. stay in bed, we got you covered this morning. good morning, this is "nbc10 news today," thanks for being with us. i'm rosemary connors. it's just after 9:00 on this saturday. let's begin with our weekend weather. meteorologist krystal klei is tracking the cloudy conditions outside, at least it's not wet at the moment, krystal. >> yeah, and it totally is stay in bed weather. you see cloudy, fog out there, you want some hot cocoa or coffee and stay wrapped up because really while we are cloudy, the rain itself is offshore for the most part. now, i think today as this kind of wraps around and moves to the east a few sprinkles, light showers near parts of the delaware beaches, south jersey are certainly possible. even a report of an hour or half hour ago sprinkles falling over parts of pennsylvania. but that's going to be the most you'll see is a few sprinkles out there today. just not going to get a lot of rain. we will stick with the clouds. and we are starting cool.
a lot of us are in the 60s right now. 60 pottstown and 64 northeast philly. 65 in center city. the 60s are going to move up into the 70s this afternoon which will be warmer than average. a little warmer than we've seen the last few days. not high 70s, mostly low to mid 70s. take a look at the trend here. 71 at noon and right around mid 70s by 3:00. i think officially the airport probably only about 74 degrees, but a few spots could get higher. we'll talk more about the temperatures through the rest of our neighborhoods for today compared to tomorrow coming up. now to breaking news. a man who jumped from the upper floor of this burning apartment building in philadelphia is now at the hospital. and investigators are calling the fire suspicious. nbc10 was at the parkside apartments on leaper street in frankford where crews responded to a rubbish fire inside the building around 7:30 this morning. they put out the flames, as you can see, in minutes. we spoke with a woman who lives here. she tells us she saw the victim
trying to escape the fire. >> the guy he jumped out the back window because it was so smoky he couldn't come down the hallway to get out. so he jumped. he's a little broken up. in bad shape. >> really? >> yeah. >> as i mention officials are investigating this as suspicious. in the meantime we're working to find out more about the victim's condition. happening now, there is a major detour on the pennsylvania turnpike. a stretch of the northeast extension is blocked off so workers can take care of a bridge replacement project. guess what, this detour is going to keep you on the road for a lot longer than you probably expected today. nbc10's katy zachry is live in upper macungie. katy, what are you hearing from drivers? >> reporter: yeah, they're quick to sound off about this detour, rosemary, because we are talking about a 40-mile stretch in both directions on the pennsylvania turnpike that is completely closed to traffic until monday
at 4:00 a.m., as you can imagine hampering people's weekend plans. we have a map to show you and better illustrate this road closure. the road closure is highlighted in red, blue is the detour around it that puts you on roads like route 22, 33 and interstate 80. if you are driving northbound, you will be forced off the highway at the lehigh valley interchange. going southbound expect to be detoured beginning at the poconos interchange. it's all because highway crews are replacing an aging bridge. we found one family headed back to ohio this morning. they tell me they had no idea they would be in for such a detour. how are you dealing with this? it's a bummer, right? you're going to be in the car for longer. >> it is a bummer. we didn't know where we were going, wherever gps takes us, now we're going to follow that route. >> reporter: and we're taking a live look right now at turnpike traffic that is starting to get backed up as these cars and trucks make their way toward that detour. so as you can see where we are at this service plaza we're
already seeing some of the traffic back up as they are being rerouted off of the pennsylvania turnpike in the allentown area. and as you saw from our map earlier, being forced onto local roads like route 22, 33 and interstate 80. and for people taking those local roads they tell me it's much slower going. the rain isn't helping things and there are a lot of stoplights and stop signs. so people are planning to add at least a half hour, even an hour to their drive this morning and for the weekend until the road closure is lifted. for now, reporting live in lower macungie township, katy zachry, nbc10 news. >> lifted at 4:00 a.m. monday. thanks, katy. in other news this morning, a pennsylvania woman and her family are now in canada after being rescued from captivity. her husband is revealing new information about their five years being held hostage by a group linked to the taliban. a warning you may find some of these details disturbing. caitlan coleman is originally from york county, pennsylvania. her husband joshua boyle is
canadian. after arriving in toronto last night, he told reporters the insurgent group killed their infant daughter while they were held hostage. he also said a guard raped his wife. coleman was pregnant when she and her husband were kidnapped in afghanistan. the couple then had three other children who were born in captivity. >> obviously it will be of incredible importance to my family that we are able to build a secure sanctuary for our three surviving children to call a home, to focus on edification and to try to regain some portion of the childhood that they have lost. >> he added that one of his surviving children is in poor health and had to be treated immediately after they were rescued by pakistani forces this week. we have a follow-up to a story nbc10 was first to report. albright college in reading has kicked two more players off its football team in connection with a pregame demonstration. earlier this week you may remember we spoke to quarterback
jyree durant. he told us he was booted off the team for kneeling during the national anthem. you see it right here. the college said durant was punished for going against a team decision among players and the coach to kneel during the coin toss but to stand for the anthem. we've learned the team has cut two other players twor, two mort for kneeling but for standing during the coin toss. again, the opposite of what the team had decided what they would do. albright's president says the school is now looking at new policies that will support all students. today in burlington county a congregation will celebrate its newly constructed church. the original easton bible church in hainesport was destroyed by fire. today there will be for food and families. today, philadelphia police and septa officers will continue their work to rehabilitate homes for two families. they started the renovations on
kensington's somerset home yesterday. one homeowner is getting new floors and have some electrical work done. and something she hasn't had in decades, a new oven. >> i'm very appreciative. i'm super appreciative. >> you get a chance to see the gratitude, the appreciation from the community members. and it's priceless. >> the nonprofit rebuilding together philadelphia is sponsoring this project. move on over, pittsburgh. experts say philadelphia is one of the top contenders for amazon's new headquarters. moody's ranks philadelphia number three on its list just behind austin, texas, and atlanta. the company says philly might be the underdog, but it has a lot to offer in terms of affordability and location. the downsides, a bad tax structure and pennsylvania's budget crisis which could limit the number of incentives the state can offer. eight minutes past 9:00 right now on this saturday. coming up in sports, eagles coach doug paidersson says he needs to keep it real when it
1 1/2, allentown 1 1/4, these are areas seeing patchy fog and low clouds hanging, trenton at 1 3/4 and philadelphia at 2. take it slow out there. the good news is the sun is now up and that's helping with our visibility. let's talk about a few events going on. pretty soon we're looking at our saturday forecast for the temple game. if you're getting out for tailgating, 67 today at noon kickoff 70 and 74 for the forecast high. little peak of sunshine is possible as we get into the afternoon, but it will really be a fairly gray day. tomorrow, i'll be out at the dilworthtown inn wine fest starts at noon all the way to 4:00 and temperature up to 80 degrees with a nice mix of clouds and sun. you get to drink for a cause, their goal to help crush cancer. maybe i'll see you out there tomorrow. we'll talk more about the forecast for this weekend and the dry spell next week coming up. all right, thanks for that, krystal. talk about inspirational. this next one is about a marine who lost both of his legs while he was serving overseas. he's now running a marathon in a
different city every day through veterans day. yesterday he was here in philadelphia. today he'll be in new york. you are looking at rob jones running the schuylkill river trail yesterday. after being injured in afghanistan seven years ago he learned how to walk, run and swim again. now he's trying to run 31 marathons in 31 cities in 31 days. he tells us he's doing it to show other wounded vets that nothing can stop them from achieving their goals. >> when somebody that maybe struggling sees me doing this, they might have a better chance or it might be easier for them to envision themselves being able to do it as well. so this is just an extension of that overall mission. >> jones plans to finish on november 11th, veterans day, on the national mall in washington. we wish him the best. 9:13 right now on this saturday. coming up next, we have a furry friend in studio. we'll introduce you to a pet looking for a loving home in our clear the shelters segment.

you're also kind of testing it out. like you said, yeah. and nothing wrong with that. you're doing a good thing. so we have, you know, even foster dogs as well. >> of course, right. acct philly, kittens, cats, dogs, puppies. you have a couple events happening, one today specifically geared toward cats. >> that's right. we're going to have cats, kittens, all sizes and shapes at petco, 12:00 to 4:00, halloween theme event and meatball will not be there but there's going to be a lot of other kittens. all of them are up-to-date on shots, spayed or neutered can go home directly from the event. >> when do we think meatball will be ready? >> very soon. i would say maybe a week or so. >> all right. okay. >> people can foster at acctphilly.org, reach out tell you about meatball and we can arrange a meeting. >> and then you'll be on to the next pet you're welcoming in your home, we'll see. >> probably. i have a lot of pets at home. he was kind of an accident foster, but i love him. he's awesome. >> if you want to get in touch

season. >> they're going to read and they're going to listen to the media outlets on tv and stuff and just hear how people are talking about them and saying how good and how great they are, but i got to keep it real, too. and that comes from me. yeah, we're winning these games, but there's a lot to fix, a lot to correct as well. it's never perfect, obviously. >> the flyers home opener is tonight against the capitals. they've had a few days to get ready after opening the season with a four-game road trip. they went 2-2 on that trip. giving them something to build on early in the season. >> it's something that, you know, you don't want to come home with zero or one points. we have four points right off which is positive. so, you know, it's a thing we can build on. one trip is behind us, now we got to focus on saturday and go game by game. >> that's sports. i'm marshall harris, nbc sports philadelphia.
and we begin with a live camera overlooking frolly stadium in wilmington, delaware. clouds overhead but looks like some of the fog we had about an hour or two hours ago has started to thin out. that's a good sign. temperatures pick up and pull away from the dew point and that's when the fog can burn off. for those of you foggy still, don't worry. give it a couple more hours and should burn off as well. look at radar and satellite, we have showers mostly offshore now. and just a few isolated showers right near the delaware beaches. i wouldn't be surprised if throughout today we get just a few sprinkles over mostly this portion of our viewing zone because we still have some moisture in this kind of wraparound effect we've been dealing with now for a couple days. not totally out of the clear, but we're looking at much lower chances of rain than even a couple days ago. let's go through the hour by hour for today. this is going through noon and notice it's showing a sprinkle or two possible even into pennsylvania but really a sprinkle is all that you might see. it's going to be mostly cloudy throughout the day, but some of those breaks in clouds you see kind of back and forth, that's
just brief peeks of sunlight for the most part it will be cloudy today. but a little crack of sun here and there is certainly possible in the afternoon. and that's going to help pick those temperatures up into the 70s by later today. so as we go through today, 70s. by tomorrow winds start to shift and we're watching a cold front that will be sitting to our west. ahead of the cold front tomorrow warm air's going to start moving in in something called the warm sector, it's really the southwest winds that pull over us which pumps in that higher heat and higher temperatures as a result. so here's tomorrow afternoon. nice and warm over us. some of us in the 80s, but the cold front is starting to get closer which will strengthen those winds. it will also be windy tomorrow. then the cold front starts to approach over us overnight. that could bring some rain into early monday morning. and then by monday there it is that cool air starts to pool in over us and that's just going to take those temperatures right back down. here it is. 74 today. 82 tomorrow. and then 63 on monday. so really an up and a down. again, those showers are just on the early end of monday first
few hours of the day. and then we dry out as well. in the suburbs 73 for today. 80 by tomorrow. how about in the lehigh valley, 73 to 78 by your sunday. and then down to 60 degrees monday. new jersey, you're at 74 to 84 by tomorrow. the shore even goes from low to mid 70s and in delaware 74 up to 82. then right back down 64 degrees on monday. here's the hour by hour model to show you the showers i was talking about. 11:00 a.m. fog is starting to thin out. again, we're starting to see the mix of clouds and sunshine. that continues. more sun in the forecast for tomorrow and then there it is tomorrow night the cold front approaches overnight into early monday morning those showers will move through.
game "minecraft" will gather in montgomery county this weekend. an event called mine fair will be held at the greater philadelphia expo center in oaks today and tomorrow. players can participate in block building battles, meet their favorite "minecraft" youtubers and learn new tricks from mentors. not going to be the best day outside. it's a little dreary, little cloudy, little camera out of focus, that's all right. today the temple owls are taking on uconn in south philly. cake e kickoff in just a few hours at the linc. you know what, no matter what the weather is doing we wish them the best. >> hope they come through. >> even though it's going to be gray outside, temperatures will be warming up a bit into the 70s so won't be too bad for you. let's talk about the conditions. today the forecast high is 74 degrees. mostly cloudy, just an isolated sprinkle is possible mostly south of the corridor. tomorrow windy, mix of clouds and sun early monday morning and
then temperatures drop 63 monday, look at that extended dry spell after those showers pass. so it's actually looking pretty nice next week and then the warmup again, 78 by next saturday. >> i know. you know what, i'll take it. i mean, i can remember many halloweens here in the philly area that have been really warm, you know, where you're like pitching the jacket. we'll see what happens this year. that's going to do it for us. i'm rosemary connors. for krystal klei and everybody at nbc10 have a good one.
