TORNADO WATCH for Del. and southern NJ until 8:00 p.m.

October 27, 2010 RELATED: Stormtracker 6, extended forecast and more on the Weather Channel

SEVERE WEATHER RISK: The Storm Prediction Center has parts of the Delaware Valley in a "Slight Risk" Zone today which extends all the way down the east coast into Georgia. The are affected include Philadelphia, the entire state of Delaware, and roughly the southern half of New Jersey. The Philadelphia suburbs immediately north of the city are not included. What this means is that any thunderstorm that manages to fire up today could be strong and gusty with lots of rain and perhaps some small hail.

TONIGHT: Showers will probably linger into the evening and then taper off. Rain could linger later into tonight close to the coast. Clouds will begin breaking up overnight. The lows: 50-56.

THURSDAY: The front is gone, setting us up for a nice, mostly sunny day. It will be breezy. It will take some time for the colder air behind the front to arrive, so we still have a shot at getting up to a nice high of about 72.

FRIDAY: The temperature party is over. More seasonable, cool air returns from the northwest and we see a high of only about 58. It will be windy, too, but plenty sunny.

SATURDAY: High pressure moves in, lowering the wind but keeping in the chilly air with a high of 59. We'll see lots of sun.

SUNDAY: Halloween will be cool this year. Look for clouds and sun with a high around 59 during the day. In the evening, temperatures will probably slip into the mid 50s during trick or treating. There is now a slight chance of a night time shower, but hopefully this holds off until after trick or treating is done.

MONDAY: Look for partly sunny skies, but even cooler air moving in. The high: 54.

TUESDAY: Mostly sunny skies emerge from behind Monday's weak cloud-producer. The high: 54.

WEDNESDAY: The long-range models suggest another system around midweek that would turn today mostly cloudy skies and some rain.
