skyscrapers at least for today but you know we do have quiet weather, all thanks to high pressure, "skycam 3", nice and tranquil, few speckles, from the sunlight, really quiet and pleasant. little breezy, though, and definitely cold, too, which we get to. but let me turn our focus quickly to the poconos, especially, northampton, monroe county and then east across the delaware river. these flood watches are specific to a long the delaware river, there is cents another ice jam, working it way down along the river. this is going to last until at least 4:00 p.m. it remains to be seen whether the weather service needs to issue any more beyond this point for the south or downstream of this. but easton, bethlehem, any of the communities, strads berg, that blanket that river as the it is going by will potentially see some flooding and there has already been higher water levels reported as a result of that. now, there is also one in lancaster county. that's affecting the susquehanna river. meanwhile back in time here,
looking at very long loop all the way back from 12 hours ago , by midnight, we had few flurries, working their way through, those have obviously long since cleared out. did have little disturbance that just led to wintery atmosphere out there. but more than anything, you see how it is moving from northwest to southeast, shows you the wind flow, as we zoom it out, we beat it up, just three hour loop here, and for the most part, it is a quiet looking map here. you do have the combination, though, of the next storm system, starting to push east, and with time, the cold front from that storm is what's going to have the biggest impact on our area both in precipitation and with its eventual nosedive takes place on the thermometer later on. for now all about high pressure, so we only have the opportunity to see more sunshine and get these temperatures up little bit higher with every passing day. so, as it rolls east, recall you have the clockwise circulation with areas of high pressure in our hemisphere, as it moves east, on the western side of the high it will help surge in that warmth from the south. now, not talking flip flop weather perhaps, but it is
certainly going to be a lot milder than it is, even this afternoon, by tomorrow, and then specially this weekend. but that's when the rain get here. most specifically on sunday, sort of split weekend forecast in that regard. you have got outdoor plans, want to try to get them in saturday day unless you want to be out in the rain sunday. outside the junior and senior year high school, i counted finds one single cloud out there, beautiful afternoon if you took away the temperature and that wind. not really harsh winds, but enough to notice even 8 miles per hour, or seven, as this is live observation, it might change right before your very eyes there, it is cents enough that you notice it. it does make it feel colder any time the wind does blow, so dot meat net in your head,. >> thirty-three currently, probably only add about four more degrees up our sleeves in philly before said and done, 31 doylestown, 32 willow grove you get the idea. now, as the rest of the day goes, couple of additional degrees the best we can hope for. sun will continue to shine. it does stay quiet, clear,
later tonight, under the clear sky, we drop down to 25 degrees, calm winds, too, so you don't have to account so much for a windchill. just quick check on the seven day, though, look at the rebounds, mid 50's by the weekends, saturday, my personal five of the weekend days, simply because primarily dry, could be rain shower toward night fall specially, but sunday's the soggy day. by monday, behind the cold front, well, temperatures of course are going to take a hit we will be back in the mid 30 's by tuesday, might even see couple of snow showers come monday in the wake of the front. jim? >> well it is one of the music industry's biggest nights this sunday, cbs host the 60 grammy a warts talented musicians and performers hoping to you can away with the industry industry most coveted trophy. among them new jersey husband and wife team, marcus and jean baylor. >> ♪ >> ♪ >> nominated for 2-gram thinks
