jacket. we're looking at spring like weather so warm for tomorrow around 60 degrees and sunny. and then as we go into the end of the weekend we're actually looking at weather system that will be bringing rain and i think even possibly snow to part of the area. it's a quick mover though, so that's not going to last long. i'll show you the timing in a second and also that nor'easter next week. i'll show you that one too. it could take a couple different tracks so we'll look at those. we're in the mid-30s through the lehigh valley if you head out soon but with the independent with outside and it's not a large wind that we're seeing it's not very strong but it's causing temperatures to feel more like the upper 20s, 36 in philadelphia. 35 millville and dover so cold tonight. it's going to stay that way overnight. here is a live look outside. we still do have overcast skies but the temperatures will remain kind of steady, then in about the upper 30s overnight. then about the mid 30s by the time you wake up tomorrow. then through the afternoon, those temperatures start jumping up and the clouds will be clearing. right now we're watching a system up to our north. it's going to stay to the north but this is responsible for all
of the cloud cover we had. now we did stay on the drier side. but with the cloud cover in place and that precip to the north, there is a chance we could see very light precip late tonight so we can't rule that out. here is future weather, so the model here keeps the clouds in place. by 3:00 in the morning this is late, but notice that little area of pink around the poconos we cannot rule out a very light mix or freezing rain but tomorrow that's all gone. clouds are gone, we get a lot of sunshine. temperatures around 60. sunday a nice day around 57 degrees. we'll see more clouds around sunday, and that's ahead of that other weather system i told you about. so this is the weather system that would be here overnight sunday into very early monday. there is a chance we could see snow with it but mostly it looks like rain and a mix, there's 6:00 a.m. monday and it's already on its way out. so for the morning commute hopefully we'll mostly be dry. the timing could change over the weekend so you want to stay tuned to see updates on it. here is a look at next week. we're talking about that
nor'easter as we go into wednesday, area of low pressure moves up the coast, we get a strong on shore wind so we expect coastal flooding but the question now is going to be what type of precip. right now looks like it could be rain and possibly a wintry mix up across parts of the area. a couple different tracks it could take. if it's farther offshore we have a higher chance of snow possibly because of the wind direction, but if it's farther inland we have a higher chance of more rain coverage than we would snow. so of course we're many days out. it's not until next wednesday so i'll have all of the details wees go through the weekend and into next week with more updates. tonight mostly cloudy, chance of a light mix, mostly north and west, 34 for the low in philadelphia. 30 areas north and west. tomorrow sunny and warm, around 60 degrees, feeling more like spring, the average high is 45 degrees, we're going to be 15 degrees above that. sunday looks good, we'll be watching that weather system late sunday into early monday so you want to pay attention sunday because we'll have the timing to see if it will impact your
morning commute monday. the nor'easter by wednesday. >> punkin chunkin could make a comeba comeback. they hope to bring it back to sussex county. the contest took two years off because of insurance and liability issues but organizers have secured insurance for this year. so if it does come back, maybe john clark will include highlights. >> absolutely. we'll see if sam bradford can throw one of those. we'll hear from howie rosemon and a phillies pitcher is injured. and sam hinkie on the sixers future. all four pro teams coming up next.

in hockey town montreal and toronto starting tonight. the flyers off a good road win, the flyers 6 points out of a playoff spot. this is the biggest weekend of the season. the canadiens and maple leafs are below them in the standings and jake voracek likes this spot on the road. >> my help that we're going to play on our road because they play, when we play them at home we try to show off something, we try to make extra play and make extra pass. we try to keep it simple and that's what might help us. >> and the sixers back tonight after the all-star break, in new orleans, and coach brown says he misses gentleman car sampson, waived yesterday. sam hinkie made a minor trade. he called ownership about the deal, and then jerry. sam's first two trade deadlines he made a lot of deals.
