11:17 am
the winds will settle down, but the current winds, the steady winds are 25 miles an hour in philadelphia, 23 miles an hour in dover, and along the coast, wildwoods reporting 24-mile-an-hour winds. but as the day goes on, those winds are going to back off. they're not going to die down completely, but we'll still see some gusty winds at 2:00 this afternoon. a little less wind heading into the early evening hours. but by 8:00, some of the winds may be increasing just a bit, gusting to 22 miles an hour in reading while millville sees 14-mile-an-hour winds. we'll see those wind speeds fluctuate during the day. as far as the temperatures, they're slowly climbing, but they'll stay below formal for this time of year. we should warm into the low 60s for philadelphia. 56 in summerton and center city. the suburbs will see those gusty winds back off some this afternoon. sunshine, some clouds and 53 degrees in lansdale and a cool day for the lehigh valley. allentown hits 54 degrees this afternoon. and new jersey, some strong gusts to start with this late morning, but then early this afternoon, those winds will
11:18 am
start to come down, just a bit. later this afternoon, that's when the numbers will peak in the upper 50s for hammondton. at the shore, we've seen some white caps on the ocean, sunshine will be nice and bright in atlantic city with scattered showers moving through atlantic city. won't see anymore in delaware, it's done. 58 degrees this afternoon for smyrna. you can see the scattered clouds that will be in and out this morning and this afternoon. but no wet weather. and the next chance of wet weather is not going to come until midweek. but i think we're safe for trick or treating. it looks like it's going to stay dry, though it's going to be a little bit chilly. we'll get those gusty winds today, 56 degrees this afternoon, but the ten-day on 10 shows sunny skies for halloween. but in spite of that sunshine, still breezy tomorrow, a high of 59 degrees. that's the high temperature during the afternoon. so the numbers will quickly dip down. by wednesday morning, weh'll be in the low 40s. so for trick or treating, you can count on temperatures that are in the lower 50s and some of the suburbs will be dropping down into the 40s. you may need to bundle up a bit for trick or treating. a chance of a shower on
11:19 am
wednesday. really, a better chance we'll see some scattered light showers on thursday. but it's not going to be all day rainfall. we'll get some breaks of sunshine and could warm close to the 70-degree mark. some neighborhoods may actually make it into the 70s on thursday. and bright sunshine for friday, up to 71 degrees. but then, heading into the weekend, the temperatures start coming back down with a chance of some showers on saturday. i think slightly better chance we'll see some wet weather on sunday. though not a repeat of what we went through yesterday. the temperatures will be stopping in the middle 60s on sunday. daylight savings time will be stopping early sunday morning and it looks like we'll keep an eye on the eagles' game, but they certainly didn't have a problem with all the rain yesterday, so i doubt what's coming on sunday will be affecting them. another warm-up into the low 70s monday and tuesday, and another cold front on tuesday, bringing the numbers right back down next wednesday. erin?

11:51 am
the shore. some higher gusts during the afternoon, but those will be settling down during the day. and it won't be as windy tomorrow, but we're not going to be clear of those winds. winds at 14 miles an hour in philadelphia will keep both days cool. today, it's 50s this afternoon, in spite of all of that sunshine, we won't warm into the 60s, which would be normal for this time of year. it drops down into the 40s overnight, and tomorrow wooe, w see a lot of sunshine for halloween, but possibly into the upper 50s, those winds won't be as strong tomorrow. but it will make for a chilly evening for halloween trick or treating. temperatures will start in the 50s at 5:00. quickly dropping through the 50s and into the upper 40s. that's in philadelphia at 9:00. look at the cooldown for the suburbs. 43 degrees by 9:00. and for the lehigh valley, from the 50s down into the 40s. and we may be looking at some numbers in the low 40s. but there's a possibility you'll see some neighborhoods go into the upper 30s in the lehigh
11:52 am
valley. delaware, 50s to start with. sunshine at 5:00, once the sun is down, the temperature is down. the same story for new jersey. the wind will be dying down during the evening. the windchill won't be as much of a factor during trick or treating as it was first thing this morning with those cold winds and some rainy conditions. going to be completely dry at the jersey shore. temperatures will drop eventually into the upper 40s for those later trick-or-treaters. for today, bright sunshine. you can still see some scattered clouds, but no sign of showers for us. not until we get later in the week. the next round of showers, not that. actually, it's going to fizzle by the time it gets to us. the futurecast, hour by hour, shows those clouds kind of falling apart. we'll see a lot of sunshine for tuesday, but as we go into wednesday, the clouds start moving back in, and wednesday morning, we will start dry, but late in the day, there's a chance we'll see some scattered showers. not a big threat. look at that shower activity moving in by 5:00. and then during the early evening hours, some scattered light showers. that's wednesday evening.
11:53 am
really, a better chance of some wet weather moving in later in the day on wednesday, excuse me, on thursday. you can see those showers building into central pennsylvania thursday morning at 11:30. so there are some more damp days ahead. but not today. and not tomorrow for halloween. those gusty winds today, 56 degrees this afternoon. near 60 tomorrow afternoon. but the temperatures come down in a hurry during the evening hours. it gets chilly for trick or treating. that late-day shower possible on wednesday, but looking more likely on thursday. and it will be warmer on thursday, but the warmest day coming up this week will be friday. the showers will bring temperatures down or at least a chance of showers on saturday. it's looking a little bit more likely that we'll see some wet weather on sunday. and then look at those temperatures, back in the low 70s for monday and tuesday, before we get another cooldown next wednesday. we'll be right back.
