that was the silver lining of the storm so to speak. iain, look the showers are pretty much out of here. this is just some lingering drizzle and mist. we will see a little bit of fog building in once all this comes to an end and the clouds will be out there for the most part. when you look at the rain accumulations you can see that the heaviest rain fell to the north and west of the city. allentown reading pottstown some the highest totals trenton over an inch philadelphia nearly an inch of rain and wilmington three quarters of an inch of rain and this is only round one. the streets are wet in old city philadelphia if you're out there tonight. take it easy. wind may dry some of the roads but once that rain comes to an end, we will be seeing conditions slowly deteriorate because of those poor visibility numbers and we'll take look at those. temperature 60 that's the high for the day. now we have a west southwesterly wind at about 5 miles an hour. so it's going to stay pretty mild. visibility reduced in some locations where you see the darker color here on our weather map lancaster only quarter mile visibility. now reduced in the poconos to
only a mile and a quarter but as we get into the overnight, look at this. the reduced visibles get worse come wednesday morning and many locations where you see the zero that is less than a quarter mi mile. so the fog could get dense overnight. please be aware of that. now, that's the part of the day we're talking about reduced visibility and temperatures that are still mild. but tomorrow afternoon, seeing some thunderstorms monica has been looking at the numbers and we could have serious winds with those. >> right. we're not going to see impact for your early morning commute from those thunderstorms. really will be just mist or drizzling for the early morning commute tomorrow morning. then those rain chances actually head right back up as we head into wednesday afternoon. not only talking rain chances but the chance for some thunderstorms and that could mean some high rainfall totals anywhere from half an inch to a whole inch of additional accumulation from philadelphia all the way up into allentown mount pocono picking up on rain
through tomorrow. create localized flooding maybe even ponding on those roadways something to watch out for as well as that risk for thunderstorms. you can see that marginal risk extends throughout delaware and the southern parts of new jers jersey. all included with that marginal risk that means isolated thunderstorms could produce damaging wind and even some heavy rain kathy. >> all right. so that's the next couple of days in a nutshell. temperatures falling quick until your seven day forecast. overnight, we're talking about drizzle and mist and temperatures that will be in the 50s in the city. 40s in the suburbs. tomorrow another warm day. look at that. southwesterly winds will boost the temperatures into the upper 60s. with occasional rain some morning fog and once that front moves through temperatures fall take look at thursday. 58 will be the early high temperature. midnight temperature then those temperatures falling quickly into the 40s during the afternoon. friday, saturday, sunday and monday, all look dry but cool. next tuesday the next chance of rain with a temperature of 54 degrees.
that's a look at your seven day forecast. we'll send it over to you, sean bell. kathy, eagles starting to fall out of play off contention. the guys dawk about what they need to do in the last five games to get it done plus the bcs play off rankings coming out tonight. penn state looking to sneak their way into the top four. coach james franklin talk about taking care of wisconsin first. that's next in sports.

development, all words that sound like they're giving up on the season and focusing on the future. the eagles lost to the packers 27-13 falling to five and sick in last in the nfc east. they're game and a half back of the final wild card spot and they have um no tie breaker even though doug pederson sounded like well he wasn't looking towards the post season the other guy till think they can get in. >> you have to stay the course. i think we can't dwell on it. we got to keep playing along. can't throw in the towel. i know the guys in that locker room, that's not going to happen. our efforts always there. we just got to keep fighting keep believing. and we can't change our preparation. >> they really only remember what you do in december. you know what i mean? so i mean good thing is the season isn't over. that wasn't our last game. we got five games left and the message from coach go five-zero peer. >> if you don't do what you ned to do in november, october and september, december won't even matter. so college football penn state
