>> no, but i mean, they have invited you, you want to stay on their good side, you you want to hold on to that stuff. >> their name may not be associated with that mold i piece of cake. >> anonymous. >> lets look at this we have clouds out there, as we look at philadelphia and rain showers will be coming ape in some locations they are already occurring. glummy tart to the day. the finish of the day, will not be great either. so as we head out to reading, 40 degrees right now. roads are wet there. the precipitation that we're seeing first thing this morning is occurring to the north. so you can see it through lancaster. we have got some through reading and north of trenton. the rest of the area at this point is dry but there is a a lot of moisture coming into the area, that is why we're expecting our heavier rain, starting, say around the noon time hour, right on through this afternoon and this evening. so, this is the look for this saturday but it does get out of here in the weather improvement, greatly tomorrow, if you like it sunny, cooler, and very windy. so 43 degrees, that temperature right now,
5:46 am
yesterday, what we got to 46 degrees. we barely change temperature from the high yesterday, to the low this morning, a and it is 40 in trenton. forty-two in wilmington. thirty-six in the allentown area, 38 in reading, 46 in wildwood. the temperatures will show that same kind of variation, they will be cooler to the north in the 40's to almost 60 degrees well to the south. and now we mentioned the periods of rain. we will be finding that especially as we move on through the afternoon hours and then the amounts anywhere from three-quarters to 1 inch, ponding on the roads, of course, that is possible, and temperatures should be mostly in the 50's, i think if we average everything out. now, as far as the amounts go the computer models are saying that by the time we hit 7:00 o'clock tonight we have seen over an inch of rain through philadelphia and you have seen about three-quarters of an inch through millville. by the time this is over and this thing should have pulled away for just about everybody by tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m., maybe a inch through philadelphia, it wants to pick up some of the rain amounts along the shore to an inch plus.
5:47 am
so, don't necessarily just cap off your rain gauge and say that is what it will be because things do change during the course of the system but just general idea that we will get a lot of rain out of this, around an inch in a lot of locations. this computer model, pretty close to being right, not totally, so, we will give it a b plus this morning. that means that if it starts right it has a better chance of ending right. say by noon we have heavier pockets of the rain moving in through the philadelphia area, by 2:00 this afternoon we still have the rain here but by 4:00 o'clock we are still looking at it. 7:00 o'clock through south jersey perhaps do we find a couple of breaks in other locations? just know we will continue to see these rain showers at 1:00 in the morning tomorrow morning and then pull as way at 6:00 in the morning, wrapped clearing following this and looking at very bright and very windy day coming up for us thomas we watch another system then coming in, late on monday, tuesday, and maybe early on wednesday, a coastal system, it is a track, intensity still
5:48 am
not set but just know on that timetable if you have got things planned for tuesday, wednesday we could be looking at heavier rain, win, could there be some snow to the north, again, the track is not set on that tuesday/early wednesday timetable. the the way it is right now on this next coastal storm that is coming. today's rain and it is in the 50's, except for the poconos where it is in the 40's are wind at this point will not be a big deal about 5 miles an hour but they do pick up, we will get wind gusts tonight, 30 miles an hour, the rain ends overnight, 38 degrees, keep your umbrellas handy, keep your pets dry, and away a windy cooler day tomorrow. forty-two. it will feel colder all day long. monday 38. we will cloud it up. we will see rain. tuesday is a wet day, wednesday could start with a little will early snow in some spots but again, too early to call that by thursday, friday, we should be drying out. nicole. >> all right, thanks. as nation prepares to mark seventh third anniversary of
