11:19 pm
and even those clouds start to clear as a high pressure system starts to dominate. expect the temperatures for tomorrow ranging mainly in the 30s along the lehigh valley to the 40s in the p.a. suburbs. haddonfield, 41. trenton also seeing low 40s. conditions for tomorrow will be a lot warmer. wilmington, 52, along with dover. so we do have those warmer temperatures, especially farther south. your ten-day on 10 brings us that nice warm temperature by next week. but here is the deal. we have to contend with the rain for tomorrow, wintry mix for the northwest. valentine's day looks pretty nice. right now i'm going with mainly clouds. here's sports. erika, thank you.
