>> cloudy skies over the area right now, a little bit of sunshine towards the lehigh valley, berks county far away from the coastal moisture and at the shore, they are cloudy and more rain during the day today. temperatures pretty uniform. near 40 degrees, cape may point is 41. wildwood, stone harbor, sea isle city, all of those places at 41 degrees. we have a northeast wind and that piling up the water. there could be some minor coastal flooding tomorrow morning's high tide. you can see the sustained winds at 20 miles per hour in wildwood. 14 in philadelphia. the further west the less wind we have. you can see more moisture coming up from the south. we had a good bit of rain yesterday. a lot of hours of rain in southern delaware and south jersey with more to come. that's ahead of this weak system
11:51 am
that is bringing the snow. and some colder air. but maybe not enough snow and not enough cold air to cause problems for tomorrow. here's the afternoon, dry with temperatures in the mid-40s. as we go through the night tonight, again a little bit of rain towards the coast but here comes that area from the west and this computer model continues to weaken that system as it approaches. temperatures above freezing across the whole area until the system moves by, then it gets cold. tomorrow night and into wednesday morning, that's the coldest part. so we are in the upper teens to the mid-20s with wind wednesday morning. so that's going to be the coldest part of this week. but nothing like minneapolis, right now it's seven there. while we're at 43 degrees. and it is going to be bitter,
11:52 am
bitter cold. the next two days for those traveling to minneapolis, it's not too bad. but then, the super arctic air comes and by super bowl sunday, look at that, the coldest day of all, a high of 7 according to this new computer model and a low of 4 below zero. so the latest official forecast has 7 at the start of the game, 1 by the end of the game. the feels like temperature down to 10 below. i mean, that is just brutal for those hopefully out there celebrating after the game. now tomorrow we have 36 degrees, few snow showers in the morning. we have a stronger system affecting us and that's thursday and into friday. it looks like it would start as rain, change to a mix and then to some snow by friday morning. so we'll keep an eye on that. that could cause some problems. and then another small system
11:53 am
affecting us perhaps super bowl sunday and into monday and obviously, you don't need any kind of weather issues while we're out celebrating after the game. we'll be right back.
