temperatures you can see we're dropping north and west into the low 50s even the 40s right now for the pocono mountains. still hanging on to the low 60s as we move down the shore. so for tonight, a few showers around. but temperatures will be dropping. dry tomorrow. dry and cool for your halloween as well but turning much cooler as we move toward the upcoming weekend and also a nor'easter brewing. so here's the satellite and radar showing you that front that's moving through right now. dropping the temperatures bringing the light showers. we'll continue to time it out as we move overnight and as we approach your thursday, a lot of sunshine, mixing in with clouds it will be cooler than today by about 10 degrees. friday sunshine to start then those clouds increase for your halloween staying dry but we'll watch a disturbance most out of the great lakes. that energy will transfer to the coast and we're talking a nor'easter it's going draw down some cooler air. windy conditions, rainfall and most of the snow is going to be to our west.

look at the european model. you can see it will develop that storm system. it cranks up and moves up the coast. the iso bars areas of equal pressure that means gusty winds for us but most of the accumulating snow is going to be toward the west into the mountains of virginia. so the bottom line, saturday cloudy and windy those scattered showers arriving across the area. winds will be gusting over 30 miles per hour. rain for most. there could be a wet snowflake on the tail end of this system. primarily toward the pocono mountains no accumulation and then sunday improving as the storm pulls away but staying chilly. for tonight, 40 in the suburb. 47 in the city and then tomorrow, temperatures only in the upper 50s. the seven day forecast will show you as we move toward halloween, we are talking about temperatures in the upper 50s. rainy and windy for the temple game. don't forget to fall back as we move toward the upcoming weeke weekend. and temperatures rebound a bit as we move toward tuesday.
