like multiple sclerosis and terminal cancer. well, a cold and windy day but at least we don't have the snow yet. we will have it tomorrow for part of the area. the clouds are here now. they are going to stay around tonight and tomorrow we will bring rain-snow mix through the area and some of you could be seeing snow. that would be wet snow too. i'll show you the timing in a second after all of that leaves. we go into sunday morning and freezing temperatures return. we're talking about 20s sunday morning with the freeze watch for much of the area right now. monday that is the phillies' home opener and we'll start to get milder. mid-40s through the lehigh valley. 50 in philadelphia. 47 in trenton. around 50 degrees for much of new jersey and delaware and winds are still gusting near 30 miles an hour. it's all ahead of this system. it's not a very impressive system. it's a clipper system around chicago with rain and snow.
5:19 pm
but as far as heavy precipitation we're not seeing too much. it will move in to start your weekend. in the meantime we're going to stay dry as we go into tonight. so this is future weather as we go overnight temperatures drop into the 30s, it's going to get colder tonight. then tomorrow morning here you see it by 8:00 a.m., and the computer models have been consistent on the timing of this. and pretty much on the placement of the rain and snow. so by 8:00 in the morning we could see a rain-snow mix around philadelphia through parts of new castle county. rain likely in new jersey and delaware. temperatures there should be around 40 degrees. north and west of philadelphia we should be seeing mostly snow. or maybe a rain-snow mix. but temperatures will be in the 30s in spots. 10:00 a.m. we're still seeing this move through. and we have to watch the timing closely because if it moves in early enough the temperatures could be a little bit colder and we could start to see sticking, mostly i don't think we will. by 2:00 in the afternoon a rain-snow mix continuing, temperatures above freezing,
5:20 pm
then saturday night and it all clears out. then we get colder as we go into sunday morning. 7:00 a.m. in the 20s, areas that see heavier pockets of precip could be seeing freezing as we go into sunday morning. maybe some icy conditions so we'll have to watch that closely too. for the snow forecast, mostly it will be grassy accumulation. it will be a wet snow, so the chances of it sticking on the roads, they are going to be pretty small but there is a chance some of this could stick on the roadways early. the grassy accumulation is going to be the best bet here. south jersey and delaware, mainly rain for these areas. the warmest temperatures across the area. then we go through philadelphia, new castle county up to trenton. maybe an inch or less. it's going to mix with rain so hard to accumulate especially falling right in the middle of the day. lehigh valley, poconos, possibly 1 to 2 inches. we'll have to watch those temperatures closely. either way we're going to see a rain-snow mix tomorrow. tonight cloudy and cold, dry, 38 for the low in philadelphia, 32
5:21 pm
areas north and west, and then we see the rain and snow move in tomorrow morning. it's going to be a windy day. winds gusting up to 30 miles an hour. windy and cold, now the high temperature through the day will be later in the day, not in the morning when the rain and snow gets here but parts of new jersey and delaware we could be in the low 40s. so highs tomorrow right around 40 degrees. and we go into sunday. 49 but windy and cold, we start with temperatures in the 20s. phillies' home opener monday. >> thanks. next, a new guide on love, sex and marriage courtesy of pope francis. what it means for catholics and how they respond to questions of morality. you heard of swimming with the sharks, if you're not brave enough the aquarium has an alternative. see if you are brave enough to take a walk on the wild side. vo: president obama endorses

5:31 pm
morning, 9:00 a.m., already seeing the approach of this system. some snow north and west of philadelphia, rain, most likely through south jersey and parts of delaware because temperatures there will be warmer. we'll watch the timing of this closely. if it moves in early enough we do have areas through the lehigh valley that could be freezing so any snow falling would have a better chance of sticking. mostly, though, any accumulation will be on grassy surfaces and the chance of it sticking would be a little less likely. so coming up i'll show you through the rest of the afternoon for saturday. it's going to last for a while for saturday and colder as we go into sunday. details straight ahead. an amazing end to an amazing season. nova nation was out in full force in center city for the celebration. people from across the area and beyond filled market street for this victory parade in honor of

5:48 pm
snow, is going to start to move into the area. currently it's around chicago, and the great lakes, locally though, we're dry. we're going to stay dry as we go through friday evening. you don't have to worry about this rain or snow. but by tomorrow morning we need to worry about part of the area. there's not a lot of moisture with it and as it moves through it's not going to get very heavy but we'll be watching it closely. the clouds around. future weather as we go through tonight. clouds increase, temperatures drop down in the 30s by tomorrow morning and then you see by 8:00 in the morning some rain and snow across the area. the best chance of rain will be in new jersey and most of delaware where temperatures will be in the 40s, but some spots like new castle county at least around the wilmington area through philadelphia and north and west we could see a rain-snow mix. we'll have to watch the timing because through the lehigh valley temperatures could be close to freezing. if this moves in at that time which wouldn't be too much earlier than 8:00 a.m. we could see some of it sticking. the chances will be small and the best accumulation will be on
