friday, saturday. so that's something we really have to watch over the next 24 to 48 hours. as you look outside our weather window, some pretty fall color on market street. in philadelphia, the temperature is cool, 65 degrees. still have the mostly cloudy skies. the high temperature for the day made it to skate with that persist at the present time northeasterly wind. most locations in the 60s with the exception of the poconos. only in the 50s. we have this back door front moving in from the east toward the west and keeping it school cool all the way west until you get to buffalo and pittsburgh where they made it into the 70s today. kind of like the opposite of what usually happens this time of year. ultimate doppler showing the clouds still moving inland they will give way to clearing skies as high pressure builds back into the region. so overnight, clearing skies. it will be partly cloudy. but cool. 54 in the city. 50 in the subs bushes with northeasterly wind. during the day tomorrow, the high temperature 71. mostly sunny, still a few clouds towards south jersey and delaware especially down at the jersey shore. once again, because of that
easterly wind not associated with matthew. now let's talk about matthew. we talked about two different computer models over the course of the year. typically we focus a lot on them during the winter for winter storm. this is the new european model that kind of changed things this afternoon even with the national hurricane center forecast. watch the track of the storm. this is thursday approaching miami. it actually has the storm making a landfall then staying in the southeast and moving back south as a weakened storm by monday. well, that is in sharp contrast to new american model that just came in within the past hour. it has the storm very close to florida, hugging the coast again but after here, the models differ. this still pulls it along hatteras but keeps it further south and has a sharp cut off out to sea. this is little bit further south than previous runs and on this track, it would bring us some rain and wind but not as intense as passed forecasts and we would see the rain late saturday into sunday just like we discussed
yesterday, but it would possible be lighter rain much this was never going to hit us like a direct hit. the question was always how close to the shore it would be. and this track takes it a little bit farther to the east, of course, the other run with the european keeps it out of our neighborhood completely. now this is from the national hurricane center much we have that major category four storm with the open waters of the bahamas here in the atlantic, and very warm ocean water, and then it takes it up the eastern seaboard but with new information coming in. i think the hurricane center is going to push it a little bit farther offshore by the time we update the forecast tonight at 8:00 and then again at 11:00 o'clock. we sure will see. seven day forecast calls for three very quite pleasant days. still looking at a potential impact of rain and wind late saturday into sunday with matthew. then monday and tuesday turning cooler and then warming back up as we see an impact with a front from the west. so stale lot of uncertainties but florida and the bahamas could get hit very hard with
this storm over the next 48 hours. that is for sure. >> all right. our weather authority will be very busy for the next two days. >> all right. sean. >> rain or not we're happy the eagles are back in action. >> they're shining. >> they're shining and riding high after starting three and zero everything seems to be going right. guys don't want to get ahead of themselves this early. joel embiid getting are to do play game for the first time in over two years. we preview the sixers first pre-season game next in sports. when i was one year old, i was
diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" "that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.
