of sunshine and that will segue into a very clear night tonight. we've got a cold front back towards our north and west you can see it's bringing clouds and showers along the lakes down across upstate new york and even into north central pa right there but generally far off towards our north very cloudy, cool and showery if you were in anywhere new england or upstate new york even up towards erie, pennsylvania. but here was the benefit of the sunshine it was just beautiful. but still a bit below normal. today's weather almanac shows a high of 80 below the normal of 86. the low 61 well below the normal of 68. our record high 98 set back in 1997. the sunset now before 8:00 p.m. so those days are condensing a bit. it's only 68 degrees as we take a look at our temperatures county by county. up in mount pock know 77 in lee height ton. 76 in allentown. it's 80 in philly as well bensalem. 76 in chester. a pair of sevens for doylestown and south jersey it's also a pair of sevens for atlantic city, ocean city and 79 in millville and 80 in bridgeton, new jersey. really can't beat that.

fox future cast showing generally clear skies tonight that front will sing southward and start to spread clouds in. by day break tomorrow morning. there might be enough juice with this front to spark off shower mainly north that's where it's coming from. so the best chance is going up in the pocono lehigh valley for morning shower. otherwise, clouds may be pretty thick at times tomorrow. still a fairly decent day. sun and clouds then maybe as the front comes through a scattered thunderstorm the models are hinting at places towards our south. i think anyone has chance but it is very slight chance don't count on too much rain ruining the day. in the monday morning we turn nice as high pressure builds back in a lot of sunshine to start off the work week and i think the rain chances hold off until tuesday. for tonight, partly cloudy, still cool. 64 in the city. 55 in the suburbs. you amps need a sweater or jacket. hard to believe but night after night we're seeing these very cool temperatures. 85 degrees the high temperature for tomorrow. sun and clouds with again that slight chance of a thunderstorm. seven day forecast again showing no big warmup we'll keep this pattern as we head through the
6:51 pm
next seven days. 86 on monday and sunny beautiful day. tuesday we've got the showers the clouds and thunderstorm chances that will keep it a little cooler and we can't really totally shake the thunderstorm chance through the rest of the week. high temperatures in the low 80s. by next saturday, looks like we start to dry out but we stay cool next saturday's high temperature 78 degrees this is the second to last weekend of summer unofficiallofficially. but we could be closing out the month of august and the summer on cool note but i haven't heard too many complaints yet. >> no. 78 is great. >> no humidity. it's been great. >> let's head over to colleen. i didn't like those birds last night. >> you didn't? you know what, that's all right. the loss doesn't really count. we saw nick foles he's bouncing back after a clunker in chicago. that's good joyce. he does it without the help of his key receivers. and words were ex changed after the game between patriots head coach bill belicheck and eagles cornerback cary william. cary tells u

♪ >> eagles lost at the patriots 42-35 last night but that matters little after a out in chicago nick foles needed to play better game and he did. the eagles quarterback completed eight of 10 for 81 yards an touchdown. and that's without two of his top receivers the second quarter is when he look the best. thanks in part to tight ends brett celek and zach ertz. >> i wanted to come in here. i just wanted to play you know a clean game and just be efficient, um, just go through my reads. we had great week of preparati preparation. and really just focused on, you know, seeing the defense and just knowing, hey, just go through it. stay in rhythm and move in the pocket and stay alive if i need to and get the ball at the guys.
6:55 pm
>> cary williams cleared the air between him and bill belicheck intercepting tom brady. he called the patriots cheaters two weeks ago but after the game the two talk it out on the fie field. >> i told him i said something out of emotion, and i didn't really mean that. you know, just playing those guys back in the days just you try to use anything to fire yourself up. so in that situation i let my emotions get the best of me to degree and i said some things i ivory grow. it was weird because i'm used to him shaking head coach's hand and just going to the locker room. i was just mosing around mid field and he's right there. he came to me. i just made the best of that opportunity. i told him how i felt. it was genuine, from the heart so, you know, we make mistake. i have my share of miss tax i make and i may be allowed mouth at times. sometimes my mouth can get the best of me. but, you know, we just hashed it out and that's that. >> as we mentioned nick foles
6:56 pm
was without two of his top receivers in jeremy maclin and riley cooper then josh huff went down with a shoulder injury so we're just glad jordan matthews is looking better than he did last week in chicago. the rookie receiver had two drops against the bears but last night he led the eagles with nine catches for 104 yards inform fact he caught everything that came his way and after the game chip kelly said this performance is more in line with what matthews is capable of doing blaming his game against the bears on rookie jitters. >> i'm happy with jordan' performance today. um, he was a little over excited playing in his first nfl football game against chicago and the jordan we've seen in practice is the jordan that you kind of saw today. i think he had nine targets. nine catches. did a good job with the run after the catch. same thing we've seen, you know, when we've been in our training sessions at the novacare what we finally saw tonight. i think he was just -- he's just such emotional guy and plays at such a high level. he was ramped up a little bit too bit in the chicago game. >> on to the phillies and giants
6:57 pm
a long live giants fan right there for the game. phils on top five-one in the sixth everything begins to unravel. the pop up ryan howard is under it but then backs off for chase utley so no one make the catch. and buster posie is safe at second. then the next at bat michael morris doubles to centerfield. posie scores and it's five-two giants would score four more in the inning to tie the game. that remain the score now in the seventh. >> and finally, another ut-oh moment for a promotions department at the mlb. fry because miguel today bera bobble head night. if you look closely you'll notice he's holding the mvp award for the national league much that's a problem because the detroit tigers are in the american league. so you can't really do that. >> oops! >> that's an oops. >> all looking really closely. >> the details. >> at least it is. >> the details. >> at least it is. so brian at citizens saidve
