month of march taking in nearly $175 million at the north american movie box office. i am dominic chu. get all your business news on cnbc. 52 degrees outside and rising. meteorologist krystal klei has the first alert neighborhood forecast. and krystal, finally the break from the cold weather. >> yes. finally i don't say 30s in the morning. starting with 50s and 70s in the forecast by the afternoon. radar and satellite view. we have the cloud coverage spreading across the region. today will be a mostly cloudy day. though a nice day, it won't be a sunny one. radar picking up some of the green here. may be sprinkles in new castle and chester county. most of it not making it to the surface. a lot of moisture in the clouds. if we pull this out and give you the wide view, look at the storm setup. a storm center here. a line of storms with a cold front stretching down south. strong activity south of us that
won't affect us necessarily. then we have this area to the north. it's a cold front with warm air spilling into our area. cold air set up to the north of us. but it wants to pull our direction. as it does so, it will start to give us some chances of rain. today we are mostly on the dry side. maybe some isolated showers in the suburbs, lehigh valley, very spotty elsewhere. temperatures warm up nicely. 70 in philly. 68 in the suburbs and 67 to the shore. look at sunday. once the cooler air drops in from the north, yeah, a big difference. 49 in philly. 45 in the lehigh valley. and delaware only up to 51. also notice the icons. a little better chance tonight into early tomorrow for the chances of rain. let's explain the temperatures again now with the visualization. cool air to the north, warm air pooled over us. starting in the 50s. some spots near the shore in the 60s now at 6:00 a.m. the front starts to slip by 4:00 in the afternoon.
now we have the colder air spilling into the northern zones and it's forcing the warmer air farther south. on top of that, as it continues to drop south, the cold front gets stuck, meaning our winds start to filter in from the east. with an east flow, it's very hard for temperatures to pick up at all. sunday we start in the low 40s. that's about where we stay the rest of the day. the cool air sits, the winds continue, and we'll notice a much cooler sunday. on top of that, your hour by hour forecast. 6:30 in the morning, clouds. 1:00 in the afternoon. some spotty light rain to the northern zones. into the evening. 8:00 to 10:30 at night. scattered light rain showers passing through. wilmington, philly, trenton, stretching even to the shore. spotty and light activity, though. it's not a downpour for huge thunderstorm activity. it's just showers moving by. they linger into the sunday morning, especially areas north of the i-95 corridor.
could see icing near the poconos. spotty rain showers later in the day. better chances of rain pick up monday and tuesday. a look more closely at that with your ten-day at 10:00 in just a bit. i am john clark from csn. sixers center joel embiid had successful surgery on his slightly torn meniscus. they removed a small portion of his meniscus. joel sent out this picture. success. better than expected. so hopefully we can trust the surgery. the sixers expect joel will be able to start doing basketball activities this summer. that's a good thing. they hope he can bear his full weight on the knee in two weeks and start rehabbing. this was joel's third surgery in three years, but brett brown said this one was, quote, a very minor surgery. >> he deserves some luck, you
