5:49 pm
>> okay but it was in the 30s for the poconos. let's talk about those low temperatures. this morning lot of folks had the jackets and sweaters out there the door. you can see low 50s in philadelphia. low 40s in allentown. upper 30s in the pocono mountains. so feeling more like fall this last week of summer. the high temperature in philadelphia today only 72 degrees. that's below the normal for this time of year which is in the upper 70s. but look at the record. in 1927 it was 95 on today's date. i don't think we'll hit the 90s any more this summer. how about that? 63 degrees right now in the pocono mountains. low 70s in philadelphia as well as wilmington. we have 70 in wildwood. upper 60s in atlantic city. so for the remainder of your evening it stays dry. but those clouds, they will be on the increase so not quite as chilly tonight as it was this morning and then tomorrow morning, for that morning commute, we're talking about scattered showers around. on average were you a tenth of an inch of precipitation. then clearing throughout the day and then by tomorrow afternoon,
5:50 pm
a mix of sun and clouds. but temperatures will stay below average. so as we look at the satellite and radar we're dry right now those high clouds moving in. showers right now across parts of the great lakes and the ohio river valley and you can see that system will be headed in our direction. not tonight. but as we roll the clock, you can see here's 10:00 o'clock. we're still dry across the area. but tomorrow morning, at 4:00 a.m. north and west we're watching those showers continue to head toward the area. here's sick am so allow extra travel time tomorrow morning for that commute off to work and school. as we deal with that system that will be moving through. most of the rainfall will be out of here by 10:00 o'clock tomorrow morning and then we start to see gradual clearing with the return of that sunshine by tomorrow afternoon. heating up in the tropic in the atlantic watching hurricane eduoard moving to the northwest right now. maximum sustained winds 110 miles per hour. it will head back out to sea. and then as we move toward the pacific, we've been monitoring this system here. it's hurricane odile a big deal
5:51 pm
for sections out west you can see cab bow st. louis dealing with that heavy rain, this moisture will move back into the southwest remember couple of weeks ago we were talking about the flooding towards phoenix. well take look at this model. taking most of that moisture right back into sections of arizona. so stay tuned for the latest on flood concerns out west. for us tonight increasing clouds, 54 degrees in the suburbs. 60 in the city. rain gear early tomorrow morning with those showers. high temperatures though 75 degrees by the afternoon with that clearing. that weather authority seven day forecast showing you sunny and mild by wednesday. 74 for the high. 76 on thursday. beautiful weather after tomorrow morning's rain for the remainder of the week. a little cooler on friday. 73 degrees for the high temperature and then as we move toward the up coming weekend, mid 70s on saturday. and then we warm things right back up as the eagles will be at home this upcoming weekend temperatures on sunday in the low 80s. how about that?
5:52 pm
>> very nice. >> i like that. >> i like that, too. >> desean jackson says he still wants to play in that game on sunday. >> really? >> he hurt the shoulder yesterday. he'll do everything possible but first things first guys. a little football game out in indy tonight eagles were two different football teams a week ago. shut out 17-zero in the first half by jacksonville. out scored the jaguars 34-zero in the second half. to night a much tougher test who face the colts who got beat by a touchdown out in denver. howard eskin is live at lucas oil stadium in indianapolis. howard. >> reporter: tom, it is a different game because you're in the road and you're in a dome. nick foles with me now dave spadaro our eagles insider on "game day live". dave, nick foles obviously nee needed to what and how much of a problem is the dome? got to start fast. the dome is a problem not for nick. and really the offensive line shouldn't be a problem because they don't run on a normal cadence system it's a timing social security. so they'll be off the ball. they're not waiting for nick to say, set, hut. they're waiting for the ball to be snapped.
5:53 pm
all eyes on the ball. so from a time standpoint nick needs to start fast. no 30 minutes of struggles against indianapolis colts offense that can score 45 points in the blink of an eye. i expect a lot of high percentage stuff to counter the colts blitz. i would not be surprised to see the colts blitzing a lot tonight. take advantage of the offensive line and make nick foles beat them with precise and quick pass. >> if he doesn't turn the ball over there's no way they lose the game? that's true. lesean mccoy. 77 yards rushing last week. not as much in the i don't have you'd like him to be. jaguars did great job taking away the edges. again i think the colts concentrate on stacking the middle and coming up the middle. >> you think they do the same thing jacksonville to take him out of the game and force nick foles to throw. absolutely that's the formula going forward. you have to pick the lesser of two poisons, lesean mccoy or nick foles. >> you'll take nick foles although and you want him but you don't have enough coverage back there. in theory do you. the colts will play man to man
5:54 pm
and dare jerry maclin and riley cooper and the tight ends to get open. tight ends last week for denver did a great job for the colts. look for another big night tonight. >> eagles defense against andrew luke has to do what. within the bat at the of the line of scrimmage and tackle well. if you see the eagles missing tackles early in this game it will be a line one for the d. >> it's called pressure. it's not in your tires much it's on the football field. it's a very good early season test to see just how good this eagles team is. >> okay. dave spadaro. i'm going to ask you what the score is. i'm not going to ask you who is going to win obviously the eagles i think are the better team. high scoring game. i think 38-34 something like that. eagles win this game. i think there's going to be lot of points scored tonight. i think these two teams can spread the field so well and the quarterbacks can operate with such efficiency it's really really tough assignment for both defenses. >> over under 54 dave says take the over. back to you, tom. >> taking the las vegas. we'll see you back here at
5:55 pm
6:00 o'clock. this game really reminds guys like when you're playing pick up football in the backyard whom has the football last before you go to dinner. who has the ball last will win the football game tonight. let's hope the eagles have the ball last tonight. >> thanks, tom. >> coming up all new at 6:00 the woman charged with stealing thousands of dollars from local cheerleaders and police say she staged another crime to cover her tracks. >> and we're working to get results, again, this spot was buried under waist high weeds forcing pedestrians into heavy traffic. our original story got the mess cleaned up but now it's back with new element added to this dangerous eye sore. our bruce gordon is on the job. fox 29 news at 6:00 starts right our bruce gordon is on the job. fox 29 news at 6:00 starts right after thit's on?
