PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Thursday is another bright, sunny day with low humidity.


The mornings and evenings will be cool, it's one of those days where you'll need a jacket in the morning, but then you can ditch it in the afternoon and early evening.

The sunshine will warm us up to a high of 77 degrees in the city. It's part of a pattern this week along with low humidity and comfortable temperatures. We stay clear through at least Friday night.

NEXT Weather ALERT for Saturday, Sept. 23

We are tracking a disturbance that could bring us rain on Saturday. It's looking like it'll be a washout, and a NEXT Weather Alert is in effect.


A coastal system will impact us bringing heavy rain and strong winds, especially early Saturday. We could see wind gusts of 30 mph inland and 40 mph or higher along the coast and a wind blowing southwest will bring the risk of beach erosion and coastal flooding.

Flooding concerns will be lower as the rain will be spread out through the weekend, but localized flooding will be a concern early Saturday, with a higher risk of flash flooding at the shore.

The National Hurricane Center says there's a 50% chance the low pressure coming through Sunday will become a named tropical system. If that's the case, the storm would be named Ophelia.

Right now, the storm is being referred to as Potential Tropical Cyclone 16.

Fall is almost here!

The official start of fall is also coming up - the Autumnal Equinox is Saturday, Sept. 23 at 2:49 a.m.

Here's your 7-day forecast:
