4:18 pm
here tomorrow, the second one will be here wednesday and especially late wednesday night. we have heavy rain but also gusty winds. it's going to be windy for many days this week, almost the entire week you are going to notice that wind lasting, then we have the coastal flood threat. the wind is going to be more of an onshore wind especially gusting closer to 50 miles per hour. right now we have high clouds moving in so the clouds are already starting to increase across the area. 52 degrees right now in philadelphia, fairly mild. a little above normal. our normal high is in the mid-40s, so we're already still in the low 50s i should say through the lehigh valley. 52 allentown. 50 reading, westchester, 50 in mount holly, 53 bensalem. temperatures right now around 50 degrees. so pretty comfortable outside and then we'll see things start to change by tomorrow morning. so there you see more clouds to our south. those will be moving in overnight and tomorrow. all the rain you see to the south will start to move in. it's going to start with the
4:19 pm
morning commute. two areas of low pressure where you see all of this rain. they are going to come in one after the other as we go through the next couple days. this is future weather. look at the temperatures because by tomorrow morning we'll rebound watching temperatures north and west very closely once this precip moves in. overnight we stay dry. early tomorrow here is 7:00 a.m. rain starts moving in from the south. so delaware, south jersey, expect the rain for your morning commute. that moves into the philadelphia area, continues north between about 8 and 11:00, then notice through parts of the lehigh valley closer to the poconos we could see a wintry mix. now temperatures may not be at freezing at that time so it would be a better chance of that not sticking on the roadways but we're pretty borderline either way we do have the chance for a wintry mix farther north and west. 2:00 p.m. raining through most of the area, heavy pockets, then we start to see a bit of a break going into wednesday morning. this is wednesday 8:00 in the morning, a lot of models are consistent, showing this break and that's going to be what's happening in between these two
4:20 pm
weather systems moving through. so now the second one starts to move in as we go into wednesday afternoon and evening. so your evening commute wednesday does appear to be fair fair fairly. look at this 47 philadelphia, but then in the 60s through south jersey and delaware so that is warm rain moving in. then we 2 into midnight into thursday, temperatures could still be rising at this point. and that's when we would see heavy rain and very gusty onshore winds. finally clearing up as we go into thursday morning. so warm and windy over the next couple of days. the onshore winds will give us a coastal flood threat. gusting near 50 miles an hour. this is something we'll be watching as we go into especially wednesday night. then after that into thursday night and friday morning cold air starts to move in, so then we're going to see the threat of icing as we go into mainly friday morning. so a lot of things to watch over the next few days. tonight clouds increasing,
4:21 pm
patchy fog near sun rise for part of the area. also that rain move ing at the same time. for tomorrow afternoon, we'll get up in the 40s, rain with the chance of a mix north and west. the winds will be increasing through the day, and then we see the mix turn to all rain as we go into wednesday especially. the heaviest later in the day on wednesday, and overnight into early thursday we start to clear out thursday, but then the risk for the icing occurs early friday morning. >> coming up, local homeowners find out their dream homes aren't up to code after a contractor didn't pull permits for renovations. >> they are on the hook for the repairs. so they called the nbc 10 investigators for help. what the contractor had to say, and how you can prevent this from happening to you. >> plus, a show of support from taylor swift, how she's helping another pop star who is in a bitter battle for her career.

4:36 pm
outside in the past couple hours. future weather as we go overnight, temperatures will be dropping but it's really areas north and west of philadelphia that will be a concern. by 7:00 in the morning, we expect just rain moving in south of philadelphia. so for new jersey and delaware, temperatures mostly in the 40s here by 7:00 a.m. with just rain. but then rach watch. temperatures cold enough possibly for a wintry mix but above freezing by the time that moves in. it's going to be a race between the precip and the temperatures at this point it looks like it will hit on that mark where most of it would be melting. that wintry mix we're going to watch that through the morning hours, elsewhere more rain and this will spread flthroughout t area. we're talking wind and more rain and wind into wednesday, so i'll show you those details and timing coming up. >> we have this just in. u.s. senator claire mccaskill has been diagnosed with breast

4:47 pm
wanted to start to build around players that they have in the building. you saw some of the guys get extended. it felt good to me i was on that list of players they feel they can start to build around to win a championship and you know, like i said, that feeling was mutual and really looking forward to the opportunity. >> we will hear more from malcolm at 6:00 and ryan howard makes his first appearance at spring training. we'll see you then. well, get ready for some changes in our weather pattern from the nice weekend to a few very rainy days, and windy days, we have two rounds of rain moving in, the first will start tomorrow morning for the morning commute. a second wednesday and especially wednesday night. and winds are going to be increasing so tomorrow gusty winds and then wednesday night more gusty winds and our main concern with that one i think will be coastal flooding because it will be a very strong onshore
4:48 pm
wind. possibly gusting near 50 miles an hour. we'll look at that in a second. right now the clouds are increasing mostly high clouds right now across philadelphia, 52 degrees, so it's still quite above normal. the normal high around the mid-40s, and it's been feeling nice the past few days but that's going to change when all of this rain moves in. we look down around the southeastern part of the country where our rain is coming from. locally we don't have the rain just yet but within this weather system we have two areas of low pressure that will be passing through, and like i mentioned the first one starts tomorrow for part of the area for the morning commute. clouds to the south, the thicker ones, moving in overnight. but we do stay dry tonight. you don't have to worry about the rain for the rest of tonight and overnight. here is future weather, that rain will start to move in by tomorrow morning. so now we're looking at 7, 8:00 in the morning, showers south of philadelphia, this will be mostly rain because as you see the temperatures are in the 40s here but then notice as we get closer to lancaster county you
4:49 pm
see a wintry mix or maybe light snow developing. so now we're looking at 11:00 a.m. once all of this spreads up to the north, our best chance of i think a wintry mix would be through the lehigh valley and the poconos. at this time at 11:00 temperatures should be a little above freezing so anything falling should be melting now we'll have to watch the timing very closely because it could be a bit of a race between the temperatures and the precip moving in. now the forecast low overnight for the lehigh valley is 30 degrees so if this precip moves in after it gets above freezing much less of a chance of it sticking. for the rest of the area rain and then you see that rain continues to spread to the north by 3:00 in the afternoon. still possibly that wintry mix through the poconos, then we'll get a break between these two weather systems so later tomorrow night into wednesday morning, i think we'll have a bit of a lull. then it picks up wednesday afternoon as that second area of low pressure moves through, temperatures in the 40s so everyone sees rain on wednesday, heavy as we go through the
4:50 pm
