5:16 am
doing. we've got a cold front that is poised to enter our area, coming through quickly, dry, in precipitation, maybe just a few cloud with it. probably by early afternoon to daze and bringing wind of change. if you think it is cold now tomorrow morning if you are up early, we will be even colder. 30 degrees in philadelphia 26 allentown. twenty-four reading. wilmington has 28 degrees. thirty-two wildwood. factor in the wind speeds of 14 miles an hour sustain in the city and get a wind chill of 20. so 30 feels like 20 here. we have wind chill in the teens and allentown. feels like 25 in wildwood. these wind gusts will pick up especially after sunrise. 34 degrees, 34 miles an hour, that is wind speed right the now. 22 miles an hour in philadelphia ultimate doppler no precipitation now. this is not coastal storm we will be watching on sunday. that one hasn't even formed yet. there is snow up to the north
5:17 am
nothing to worry about for us at all. it should be a dry day to day. we will jump to the future cast to sunday after a really cold day on saturday, and not even does rain move in but milder air, moves in, which is why we're only expecting a rain event for sunday afternoon but as you can see here with the orange and yellow around noon time on sunday models are projecting heavy rain along the coast. it is a coastal storm that is forming. these models have it out by seven or 8:00 o'clock sunday night so won't trouble us on monday morning but we will have chillier temperature after that. that breaks down the holiday weekend. here's another way to look at the seven day forecast. 40 degrees today but it feels chillier because of the wind and a high of only 30 tomorrow and 45 on sunday. so a complete liz different temperature. little milder clearing up on monday but windy once again with a high of 39, and then we have a chance of a few flurries possible on wednesday
