6:17 pm
that. but multiple days below zero in minneapolis. the actual temperature, not the feels-like temperature. for us, pretty cold today. high of only 32 despite a lot of sunshine. pottstown didn't even hit 30. and it's 28 there now. the temperature is not dropping much tonight. leveling off. maybe even going up a little bit. a sign of things to come for tomorrow. the wind blowing out of the south now and a reason that we're going to be warming up. only 29 in summers point. 28 at mays landing. 27 egg harbor township. clouds moving in from the west. that's building up in the middle of the country and it's just going to ride this area of moisture all the way to us as we go into tomorrow. but not so much during the daytime hours. as we go through the night tonight, see the temperatures go up.
6:18 pm
wind shifts into the west. pulls that moisture in, and there's the rain. tomorrow evening, temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. so that seems pretty clear cut. then as this system moves offshore and colder air comes in, it could briefly change over to wintry mix or maybe even some snow for the early portion of the friday morning rush. i think by 8:00, 9:00, it's all out of here and the cold winds come in. friday will be pretty cold. saturday even colder. saturday morning, temperatures in the teens, plus wind. it will feel close to zero in parts of our northern suburbs. that's the coldest part of the next week. and then there's a storm going to be developing on sunday. so some questions about the precipitation type but it's much more significant than you think. thursday night. but southerly winds coming in so that means part of the area will be getting rain. part of the area will be getting
6:19 pm
snow. at the same time. and this is sunday afternoon as you are getting ready to go to super bowl parties. there may be some travel issues lehigh valley. and some of the northern, western suburbs. but that warmer air coming in could keep it mostly rain from philly southward. it's a close call. it's several days a. so we'll have updates on that in the next couple of days and more cold air comes in for monday. so up and down, up and down. here is the forecast for tomorrow. most of this rain that you're seeing is for the evening hours. 47 for the high in fairmount, elwin, reading at 47 as well. not expecting rain during the day or evening in much of the jersey shore or in delaware. and over the weekend, it's cold friday. it's cold saturday. and it warms up just enough on sunday so that we get a bit of a mix in philly. but lehigh valley is more of a
6:20 pm
concern to me for traffic problems as we go into sunday evening. friday is groundhog day. could be some very early snow. very brief. the only place you can see the super bowl, right here. you may want to stay in your living room because it's not going to be a pretty day. then more seasonably cold weather next week. nothing too brutal. no big snowstorms ahead but notally nice and pleasant dry weather either. i'm danny pommells coming up, a lombardi trophy would turn the upside down but could it mean even more to the eagles head coach? john clark joins us with that, next.
