current temperature. that's quite a drop. 45 philadelphia, 52 dover, 40 degrees in pottstown. it's up to 80 yesterday. so the 24-hour temperature change in coatesville we're about 30 degrees colder than at this time yesterday. philadelphia is 27 degrees colder, mount holly 24, trenton 23. as we go through the afternoon, these numbers are going to get bigger because yesterday's temperatures were higher and today's temperatures are going to be going lower as you go through the afternoon. so we're already below 50 in much of northern delaware, at least livestone road, greenville at 47, claymont at 46. glassco one of the few spots at 50 degrees. bevie few 50s in the inland areas. dover 52, 50 in herrington, but as we head toward the coast when that northeast wind is only 43
in rehoboth beach. we do have a little bit of patchy light rain in our area now. mr. significant rain in western park pennsylvania. you can see, again, it's a lighter rain, we don't see the yellows or the reds that we would with the heavy rain. we're checking to see if there's any kind of frozen precipitation up toward the poconos later today and tonight, could be a little bit of freezing rain affecting bridges and overpasses, for example. more moisture down to the south and into oklahoma and texas and as you can see the track of that is moving more up in our direction. so there's more rain on the way. it's just wave after wave. it's not necessarily a steady rain for four days, but rain is in the forecast for four days. this afternoon we're borderline freezing in the poconos while it continues to get colder across the rest of the area and more
widespread rain. we taper off on the rain this evening, but the temperatures continue to go down a little bit. we're not going down below freezing except, perhaps, in the poconos. so you don't have to worry about icing over, it's just going to be nasty. cloudy, drizzly, east wind, chilly. here we go tomorrow with another wave of rain coming and a break tomorrow night and then we got more coming in on saturday. those saturday's rain is kind of patchy and not quite as significant. the temperature's a little bit up. the heaviest rain of this whole pattern is going to be coming on later saturday night and into sunday morning especially. that's the heavier rain with the yellows and the reds. so a nasty weekend. sunday a little bit less cold but also wetter.
well, record-setting warmth yesterday, glen. it's a totally different story today. >> things have really change and welcome back to winter. and it's a wet pattern all the way through sunday. the wettest weather this afternoon and again on sunday. and then we finally get some nice weather next week. you notice nothing bitterly cold. you also don't notice any snow. and by the end of next week we're heading into the beginning of march. >> yeah, pretty mild stretch after we get through the rain. thank you, glenn, if the thanks for watching nbc 10.
>> kate: well, this has been a really, really great visit. you show up unannounced, you... i bump into you in the mausoleum. you tell me that you were there to comfort me for losing andre. lie. you tell me that the bullet casings i found are ancient history. lie. you tell me that the mausoleum is too cold. lie. of course, that last lie was just to bundle me out so you could play secret agent and get yourself shot and end up in this hospital bed. [sighs] and then tell me that you're going home tomorrow, so it was--it was really great. it really was. that was really comforting. i feel so much better now, billie. and you're playing games. i'm worried about you getting shot, and you're playing games. billie.
