4:47 pm
remember yesterday i was showing you these numbers and telling you that today it was going to be reversed. allentown was going to be the warmer. they're at 59 now. dover, raining and 50. so starting tomorrow it will go back to normal where allentown will be cooler than dover, delaware. and it will stay that way through the weekend. there we are. 59 in allentown. 50 in wilmington and dover. only 52 in philadelphia. now, things going to change. quite a bit as we head through the weekend. by saturday and sunday lots of sunshine at the shore. not going to be real warm but it's also not going it be real windy. a little windier on sunday. that sea breeze coming in off that cool ocean, that has an influence. so don't let that sunshine fool you. you can get a bad sunburn even when it's cool outside. the sun is very high this time of the year. monday memorial day, 78 degrees. taking any chance of thunderstorms out of the forecast for the shore. still have it in for the poconos.
4:48 pm
but just a chance there. it's cool on saturday. warmer on sunday. really nice overall. there's the rain. starting to again, end in northwestern new castle county. much of montgomery county is dry now. all right. it's a steady rain over southern delaware and cape may county but not for too much longer. look at it it's moving straight to the east. it's getting out of here. here's the hour-by-hour as we go through the 7:00 hour. it's breaking up a little bit in delaware. and then eventually gets out of the shore area. now what's going to happen over the weekend, high pressure right on top of us saturday. so that's a sure thing. it's going to be a beautiful day, but cool. then we're watching this front, and that's going to determine what kind of weather we get on monday. so sunday is still okay and it's getting warmer with the southerly wind. there's that front developing monday. and that's why i think there's a better chance of some showers in the poconos than anywhere else
4:49 pm
