as we take a look outside we've got some cloud cover overhead across the region right now but we expect those clouds to break out from behind or the sunshine to break out from behind the clouds a little bit later on. we can go ahead and take a look at sky 6, there it is, little cloudy at the airport but we are in the process of clearing over the next couple of hours. couple of highlights to your forecast. first of all we got a couple of mild days left so enjoy today and tomorrow before that chilly change arrives. as we take a look at the current temperature, 47 degrees, better than yesterday. winds are calm like yesterday, not a lot of wind out there, so that hence out the feel of things. here you see those low lying cloud cover -- or clouds that have filtered in over the last couple of hours. we expect that to melt away from the time quickly after sunrise and then we wind up with some clouds out to the west, mainly staying to the west for the morning hours. so, i think we're going to see plenty of sunshine early and there's the chance of some clouds building in and filtering in as the day goes on. starting out cool. by 8:00 still 45 degrees. but then by 11 o'clock, up to 57 and the afternoon we spend
6:38 am
it in the 60's. in fact, well into the 60's. that high of 67 around 3 o'clock this afternoon and by 5 o'clock, we're likely still going to be sticking on about 64 degrees. light winds, a fair amount of sunshine with some additional clouds filtering in later in the day. 67 in wilmington as well. 65 in allentown and similar numbers in trenton, reading and down through millville and atlantic city. cape may down on the peninsula maybe a couple degrees cooler but still not bad. speaking of cool, you can see that cold air we have been talking about the last couple days has now descended past wichita kansas and that blue shade pushing down into oklahoma and parts of texas and that cool air is going to start shifting to the east but ahead of that it over here in the east we have two more mild days before we have to start worrying about this. as that cold air starts to push toward the east it will not be as bad here as it is right now out to the west. the next couple days we'll be averaging 15 to 30 degrees below average temperatures but later this week as that air moves towards the east it moderates as it tries to descend out of the mountains and starts to interactor with
6:39 am
the warm ocean water and we're only going to be about 10 to 15 degrees below average here. the biggest issue i think later in the week for us will be the morning lows. it will be pretty cold as you step outside in the morning much 67 today, nice and mild chilly to start out. overnight low tonight only 58. very mild. veterans disarms look great today. clouds and sun tomorrow, a high of 65. might be a little fog and drizzle in the morning. otherwise it's looking pretty good. thursday that's when the cooler air starts to push in. it will be brisk and colder with a high of 49 degrees. at night there could actually be a little feature that comes through and produces a rain or maybe even a wet snow shower, our first flakes of the year in philadelphia are possible late thursday night. looks like that is done by friday morning and by the way we're only talking about just a shower, no accumulation or anything but it will be noteworthy if we did get the wet snowflakes. friday brisk and cold a high of 45. saturday chilly 44. in the morning we've got lows around the freezing mark so again real cold as you step outside in the morning, colder than we've been so far this
6:40 am
year. for saturday, we said 44. sunday we're watching the coast, 47 degrees. there is a coastal storm that might push a rain or perhaps a snow shower in off the ocean on sunday, probably later at night maybe into monday morning. and on thursday night at 11 o'clock here on "action news," be sure to tune in for our annual accuweather winter weather outlook. we'll be talking about the chances of whether we get above average or below average snow, we'll take a stab at how much we think we'll get and we'll be talking temperatures. all of that is thursday night on "action news" at 11 o'clock. >> plus wine and hors d'oeuvres. >> sure. >> we have them in your house, they won't be onset. still ahead, a milestone in the fight against ebola. next why a doctor's trip home from the hospital today has a bigger meaning for efforts to stop the virus in the u.s. >> lava is flowing again in hawaii and starting to do some damage. karen. >> on the lookout for fog all morning and you can really see it right now on the ben franklin bridge. just kind of rolled in. visibility reduced as you're coming. we can see traffic not looking too bad with volume not too
