7:16 pm
south wind around 8 miles per hour so that feels-like temperature, yes, that's chilly, feels like 21 degrees right now and temperatures are cold all across the region. we're at 30 in allentown, 27 degrees in wilmington. 20's down the shore and at 20 in mount pocono right now. we don't -- do have a bit of a breeze as well especially closer to the coast out of the west-northwest at around 18 miles per hour so that is impacting that feels-like temperature, feeling more like 21 right now in wildwood, 20 in ac, feels like teens in wilmington and feeling like teens in dover as well and feels, yeah, even worse for all the eagles fans out in minneapolis. feeling like two above but a wind chill advisory is in effect overnight tonight for parts of the twin cities. wind chill temperatures overnight tonight could drop down to about 30 below for all the eagles fans waiting on the super bowl tomorrow. but overnight tonight, we're chilly here. 26 degrees. clouds increasing. otherwise pretty quiet but then things get active as we head into the day tomorrow. rain developing especially as we head into the afternoon and
7:17 pm
it will start as some snow and some mixing north and west of the city. high temperature tomorrow at 44 degrees, so not quite as cold. storm scan3 showing us generally quiet conditions right now. snow showers well off to our west but did have some snow in portions of minneapolis today. the system now moving off to the east. see a little bit of energy and moisture from this system enhancing our precipitation tomorrow but mainly we're going to be dealing with this system, an area of low pressure that's pulling out of the gulf of mexico and that's why we are going to see the threat of maybe some periods of heavy rain especially right around kickoff time. rain developing as we head especially into the afternoon hours. periods of heavy rain by kickoff and then postgame though the rain starting to end just in time. i think mother nature is already forecasting maybe an eagles win so we can all get out and celebrate but it will start as some snowfall especially in the poconos, mainly snow for you. then turning to sleet late in the day, two to 4 inches of accumulation. lehigh valley maybe a coating to 2-inches of slush.
7:18 pm
models differing a bit on that. you'll likely start as a wintry mix and then transition to rain, maybe a couple of wet flakes very early on in the city and suburbs. mostly all rain and then for the shore and southern delaware, it will be all rain through the day tomorrow and some of that will be heavy at times. future weather showing us this particular model bringing the rain in even before lunchtime. snowfall for the poconos, lehigh valley and maybe even our far northwestern suburbs. this has a rain-snow line a little further north and west in the early afternoon hours than do other models. they have it a little bit closer to the city for some of our western suburbs but as we head throughout the day we're going to see that big time changeover to all liquid precipitation for most of us across the delaware valley. look at that potential for some heavy rainfall. you really want to get to those super bowl parties early in the day so you don't have to commute in that. by 11 o'clock, look at that, the moisture moving out and then it stays out as we head into tomorrow night and starting things off with a lot of sunshine as we head into monday morning. rainfall accumulations, this is going to be a significant
7:19 pm
event as far as rainfall is that concerned certainly in february. well over an inch estimated by the nam, over an inch for the rpm. significant fantastic rainfall totals. you'll have to deal with ponding on the roads and you'll need that umbrella tomorrow. 34 degrees on monday colder on the backside of the system, blustery and another rain chance as we head into wednesday but hey, at least we won't be dealing with snow. as we head into thursday, 38 degrees, colder and quiet. altogether a chilly week ahead but the main thing is the rain that we're going to be dealing with, some heavy, reducing visibilities as people take to the roads to head to their super bowl destinations. >> once they're inside they're not going to care about the rain. >> they're not going to care. >> let's get to the snacks and the games. thanks lauren. we appreciate that. this evening sports cast starts in minneapolis tonight where the pro football hall of fame inductees were just announced a short time ago. sports director don bell is live in minneapolis with some very exciting news. don. >> reporter: hey, natasha, they made it officially
