philadelphia, enough warmth to lend strength to the thunderstorms. showers here and there next couple hours, areas of fog, scattered showers at times, heavier rain is possibly look how warm it is. 68 and make sure you're with us tomorrow at this time as we track some pretty strong thunderstorms. we don't see that much in the final days of november. but tomorrow, we might and we clear it out. turns much cooler but drier into the weekend. >> kate, thanks so much >> don up next with sports >> still talking about the birds, fletcher cox says the revs got it wrong.
