6:50 am
clouds there as well, winds are very light out of the south at 2 miles an hour, and then as we look at storm scan three, the clouds are here, a couple of showers, are also out there and they are not many of them and they are not heavy and might even be welcomed where you are, you know i would like to get rain around here. so there is some here but i think chances of us seeing much, if anything, for most of the area is pretty slim today. so tomorrow is better chances of picking up showers and thunderstorms, and we will time that all out. otherwise 69 degrees still at the airport in philadelphia i don't think these temperatures have changed at all, all morning, still 56 in the poconos. still 63 degrees in wildwood. a comfortable start to the day and as we go into the future weather we will take this slowly to check out the clock and sky conditions and also know that things change, so these computer models get to updated change their mind as they move along. so that is why what you see right here at this timing is not necessarily, exactly the time you will find it.
6:51 am
so by the time we get to, 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon a couple of areas may be picking up a couple of showers. they should be light, they are widely the scattered as you can see mostly dry, and 4:00 o'clock same deal these things move on, and then by the time we get to 7:00 o'clock mostly everybody in the the phillies game is going on, mostly everybody is looking like they are in fine shape. tomorrow morning though look at this, this is 5:00 o'clock in the morning this computer model want to hang on and say yes, we do pick up some showers and heavier showers as well, as we start the day on sunday and then it want to keep this going. this is 8:00 in the morning. 9:00 o'clock in the morning. and then some have of this starts to move on but we have other chances of showers and thunderstorms moving in as we move in the afternoon hours. so we can also be finding them on monday, as well, and the storm prediction center in norman oklahoma has put our area for tomorrow in that slight risk category for some strong storms. the yellow, the slight risk, the higher risk right there in
6:52 am
it or range you can see that through west virginia. we are watching for a slight risk, and what do we mean by that what could be happening. we are looking for heavy rain, if you see a storm, strong wind and small hail is possible out of anything that you see, tomorrow. it looks like our weather starts to heat up in terms of the storminess, otherwise it is pretty comfortable around here today 86 degrees. dew points not that bad 82 at the shore. poconos 82 degrees. every location is isolated shower chance but wind are light out of the southwest at 5 miles an hurry to day. and then tonight we will get down to 68 degrees, still that chance of the shower and as we saw, computer models want to bring in showers tomorrow morning but, it seems like we may have better chances in the afternoon and at night, so watch for that on sunday. just an unsettled day, monday, still some showers and storms, and, when it is gone, it is a breath of fresh air around here. tuesday through friday, low humidity, low temperatures, it is going to be gorgeous.
6:53 am
