strung out system. we had the warmfront lift in yesterday. that brought in the showers. then we had the fog. and the drizzle even early this morning from us sitting in this warm sector of the storm. so until this front crosses through that's where we will sit, right through tomorrow afternoon. that means fog is probably a recurring theme for us headed into tomorrow morning. so we take you into future visibility at 10:00 p.m., that's when we already are starting to see the visibilities drop off. it shouldn't be as a wide widespread or b as poor as is visibility issue for you tomorrow morning, but places like allentown as we wake up dark and early here on " eyewitness news," you could be already be down to near zero visibility in a place like allentown let alone under mile along i-95. so this will be an occurring issue for us tomorrow. and i won't be shocked if the weather service ends up putting out an advisory because of it, but should break up little sooner than it did this morning. in the meantime, our rain chances cents do begin to go up in the next few days. because we do have cold front coming through. that comes through wednesday
night into thursday. then we have separate batch of rain on friday. and then another batch of moisture heading into saturday snow is a very active pattern. we jump you again, in the future, to what's going on by 6:00 p.m. tomorrow evening, that's when the combination at least of the cold front start to get in here. strictly rain showers should be scattered, temperatures begin to drop off. could you see showers at any point during the day. this is 3:00 p.m. thursday, still some wet weather to track. then things do begin to clear out. again, there is cents another system, already moving in, by friday, so you're not going to catch much of a break even between systems. here is where we currently stand. we show that to you little earlier in the show. look how warm it is in charleston. even in little rock, 74, can you tell where this cold front is situated? i would say pretty obvious, looking even just from st. louis to omaha. what? you're talking about a 50 degrees difference here,
just between these two or three states. so it is a dramatic cut-off. we are going to see that warmth rebuild even into the seven day very quickly. so it is not going to be very cool for very long. we drop to 56 tonight as that fog redevelops late. it should be pretty patchy, tomorrow the record breaking day of 75, expecting record breaker today, too. thursday hit 60 degrees very early, then the temperature start to drop off as the day goes on, level off in the afternoon, but still, that potential of rain. it is out there. i can't guarantee you a totally dry day until probably next week right now. >> oh, well. got to take it while we can. >> thank you very much. katie, appreciate it, anyone who has a dog will tell you they really can be man's best friends. >> they sure k meisha has the tail of a her hoe i can day in today's love it. >> in today's love your pet day, every day is really, right? and with very good reason. but one family from this loving on their favorite pooch particularly because he potentially saved their life.
