dry. we will track precipitation sunday night. looking at accu weather live line up, tracking storm tracker six double scan radar we will see always dry and quiet across the delaware and lehigh valleys. no issues with precipitation. instead we get into tomorrow night. high in philadelphia jumped up to just 46 degrees. 8 degrees shy of average. we're heading in the right direction with that southeasterly wind. north and west of town in tannersville, 37. chilly 37 in need what the, coatsville in the upper 30's. saint david 39. kenneth square coming in at 39 degrees. down across new jersey in browns mills, four to, low of 40 for cinnaminson and ewing. hoe december inn 41. forty for bridgeton. vineland even into wood bound. you can see a few clouds starting to drift across areas, in our region. it is all thanks to the frontal bound dry lift to go our north and earlier today we had a couple of sprinkles. that activity will continue to ride to our north for the rest of tonight. weather make that are we're tracking you can see clouds build ago cross areas in the
ohio valley and the south east, and that comes our way, as we get into late sunday night. for the majority of the day tomorrow we've got you covered. high of 56 degrees. it is nice and mild with an area of low pressure we're track and rain developing late tomorrow night sometime between ten and 11:00 o'clock it is knocking on the door of philadelphia the call from accu weather for rest of tonight however, mostly cloudy, not as bad. remember in reading, the record low temperature of 15 degrees this night we're up in the 30's at least. thirty-seven in philadelphia and for the overnight low. with that, we will fast forward into next week. because wednesday is one of the busiest travel days of the season. it is the the day before thanksgiving. if you are traveling, listen up to what we are tracking. there is an area of low pressure that will form over the south east, with some energy as well, coming in from the north. so a coastal storm will more than likely develop. so the big question is, we're tracking these two pieces of energy. are they go to go fade, when do they fade and when will that track be.
so track number one has this storm system close to the coast this is a slower model. meaning it allows colder air to drain down across our region. that rain tracking close to the coast, for areas south and east, snow north and west. and if, however, we will miss that track number two as another possibility the storm system stays mainly off shore as does the precipitation and that rain, mainly at the coast. something to look out and keep into the back of your head doing traveling on wednesday. accu weather forecast showing you it is milder on sunday. high of 56 degrees. late day rain. eagles are okay at the link. on monday, record warmth, the the high of 72. then much cooler on tuesday, 55. we are tracking a coast on wednesday, 42 and we will look to be dry for thanksgiving for thursday, walter, high of 47, then. >> okay, thank you melissa. we are days away from thanksgiving, can you believe it, many people who struggle to get meals on the table all year round will sit down to the feast on thursday thanks to the generosity of strangers.
