6:18 pm
that will move offshore and high pressure will be building in for the next couple of days. so high temperatures in the 60s and then really peaking by friday with highs around 70 degrees. normal highs in the mid 50s for this time of year above average for thursday. peak at 70 friday. be close on saturday and then temperatures crash on sunday and it's all because of the jet stream. we get a big dip in that jet stream that cold polar air will be mowing in. in the city overnight frick. the suburbs 40. the spotty evening showers will come to an end and skies will clear. as we look ahead tonight in the poconos lows down to 39 degrees. 41 in reading. 40 in pottstown. 41 in allentown. 44 in dover. and wildwood bottoming out at frick degrees. tomorrow the high 63. with winds out of the northwest at about 10 to 15 miles an hour. so there will be a little bit of a breeze. and after that surge of warmth, here is that trough i was telling you about allowing that cold air to get down into the philadelphia area with gusty winds expected on sunday morning
6:19 pm
and wind chills even in the 20s. so that cold air will be driving into the region and if we have another moisture there could be some flurries especially through the lehigh valley and extending into the poconos according to our european model. the other model we look during the long range the american model does not have this. so we're going to keep an eye on this forecast. otherwise, you're looking good. seven day forecast plenty of sunshine friday 70. saturday 68. the front comes through sunday with saturday night sunday with that blustery air. sunday's high only 48. wind chills in the afternoon in the 30s. monday 44. tuesday 52. and one of the busiest travel days of the year wednesday parly sunny and 58 degrees. so what about thanksgiving? unbelievable. week from tomorrow. it's hard to believe. mostly cloudy skies expected. rain in the forecast and a cool high of 52 degrees. i'm thinking about it already. pumpkin pie, pecan pie. what do you think?
