4:45 pm
time. now, a lot of us are going to be having a rainy afternoon rush. some will see some of that rain change to snow during the evening hours. we're all going to be seeing uniformly late in the week. we've got cloudy skies. we've got some rain now in the philadelphia area. 58 degrees. very light southerly wind. that's keeping a little bit warmer. look at this variation. 32 and snowing in mt. pocono. snowing hard. pottstown, 47 and raining. atlantic city 52 and just cloudy. all at the very same time. now, let's get a little closer look. it's 3 degrees in mt. pocono. 40 in allentown. 43 in quakertown. 48 in blue bell. yet 58 at the airport in south
4:46 pm
philly. 58 in washington township. 48 in trenton. and toward the shore, it's colder with the wind coming in off that ocean but the breeze in louisville, 52. what a contrast. here's the reason we've got those southerly winds to the south. and we've got these northeasterly winds to the north. a front right there. and that front is coming down and it's going to be bringing the colder air with it and changing some of the rain to snow. at least in parts of the area. the back edge of the storm is not that far away so it's not going to last all night. but some of the rain will change to snow. here's the rain moving in to philadelphia and montgomery county, bucks county. chester county had some a little while ago. reading and allentown reporting rain but that colder air will start to come in especially as we get closer to sunset. here's the futurecast showing snow in the poconos now.
4:47 pm
dark color indicating a heavier snow. the wind flow and the rain. some fairly heavy rain at times. as we go into the early evening hours. and, of course the temperature dropping as the wind turns into the north. and so by 8:00 down into the 30s and a good bit of pennsylvania and even in philadelphia area we're getting down close to that 30 -- upper 30s mark later on during the evening. then everybody's getting down closer to the freezing mark or even below by day break. setting up for a chilly day tomorrow. so, the rainy evening could change to snow especially in the lehigh valley berks county some. high elevations north of the pennsylvania turnpike. 34 for the low in philadelphia. the only accumulation i expect is in the poconos, perhaps a few inches before it's all over especially on the grassy
4:48 pm
surfaces. sunny and cool tomorrow. no snow around then. breezy, kind of chilly this time of year. average high for this time of the year is 58. we're going to be above that on thursday. and a dry day, too. friday is the warmest day. some places should hit 70 but it's also the wettest day. and then we start to dry out over the weekend. temperatures are a little bit lower, but i think we'll settle for that after what we've got now. and here's the chance of some showers for the phillies home opener next week. it will not be bitter cold. we've seen some really cold weather beginning of baseball. >> that's nothing really. >> not too bad. >> thank you, glenn. well philadelphia's broad of an initiative aimed at helping young people reach their potential. it's called my brother's keeper. the program encourages communities to take part in a cradle to college to career
