what we have is is this huge trough out to the west. and a giant jet that's so far north. all the warm air underneath it. we're breaking records. pittsburgh i just was talking to glen. he said it's the warmest february day they have ever had. 71 in philadelphia. let's check your neighborhood and see where you're sitting. 68 in coatesville. 72 in wilmington. 69 in vineland. 65 in wildwood. mount holly at 73. you have melted away all that snow up there. tonight we're going to be very mild in the low to upper 50s. let's take a look at the radar. this is very telling. nothing going on here. we actually cleared out. we have sunshine out there. all the storm systems are tracking to the north. that's the huge ridge right through the midwest where they are getting 3 inches of rain. behind it cold enough to be producing a mix. now let's put this into the
water vapor satellite. this is kind of my geeky moment. the blue indicates water. the orange is dry air. look at how it arches up and over our area. i'm going to take this to a global level because rarely do you see such a trough like this in the western u.s. with cold air and such a huge ridge. they are perfectly opposite across the eastern u.s. so you're going to wake up tomorrow morning in the 60s. we're dpoing for the low to mid-70s again before we see showers move in. now we're going to start to see a rainy period start. we'll see showers tomorrow night and then on thursday. look at this. the numbers thursday are going to fall all day. we're going to be in the 40 degree range by the time that we get into thursday evening. on friday we're going to struggle to make it into the low 40s with periods of rain all the way through the weekend. so for tonight, we're going to be looking at those low to mid-50s. 58 in philadelphia. 57 in the lehigh valley with a w high clouds and patchy fog tomorrow morning you'll be dealing with patchy fog early
and then it burns off. then we see 76 in philadelphia. 71 in the suburbs. 68 in the lehigh valley. 73 for south jersey. 63 on the jersey shore. and 76 in delaware. somebody south and east of us could actually see 80 degrees. i'm thinking some of you in delaware. we're going to see the 70s give way. 40 in the afternoon with periods of rain. 46 on friday. low 50s over the weekend. we dry out next week. we stay above average in the upper 40s and low to mid-50s. we certainly do not retain anymore 70s. enjoy it. break out the flip-flops. it's okay. if you're a fan of the olympics, you know over the past few decades, many of our best figure skaters either grew up or trained here in delaware. i'm tim furlong. we'll talk about some of the reasons why, coming up.
