better weather. notice the sun glistening off the billing, notice where the sun is not shining right now, along the shore areas. that's because the front is still just stalled off the coast. notice the clouds, that we have there almost mapping the same color. gee, my jacket in the water and everything. but you can get the sort of mono crow mattick look down there, not finding the sunshine at this point, but you will be finding a day that you start to brighten up. talk about brightening up! look how beautiful it looks out in kutztown, look at the sunrise, the farm perfect, temperature was 59 degrees, now up to 60 degrees, beautiful day. the weather is completely different than yesterday so if you been hiding in the house since then, it is safe to come out. because the temperatures are great. dew points are down. just feels so much better around here. sixty-seven in philadelphia and in wilmington, 64 degrees atlantic city right now, wildwood at 66 degrees. and 63 in allentown, we picked up rain, thunder, lightning,
hail, winds damage, everything going on with those storms that came on through yesterday. storm scan3, few clouds, but thousand looked 12 hours ago. look at all of these lightning strikes. everybody got into this mess. and it took something almost that strong to break the heat that we saw yesterday. we had heat index, it felt like 100 degrees yesterday afternoon, and when you combine the 93 degrees temperature that we saw, then all of that humidity. that's all gone now. temperatures today that will be -- we would like them to stop in the 70s, and a chance some areas they will stop in the upper 70s just as psychological break, we put 70s here. high pressure builds in tomorrow. maybe another one every these tail of two cities, if you're along the shore areas, particularly, monday later on in the day on monday, and tuesday, with this front still stalled out here, low pressure riding along that delaware, maybe some of our shore areas
picking up possibly some heavy rain and some gusty winds, as well. that would be the monday afternoon and monday night and tuesday time period. so we will see just how far inland any of this precipitation goes. otherwise, some clouds do show up. but still very nice, with temperatures in the 70s. what have we seen in well, what a hot week we had last week. tuesday, 93, we ended at 93 degrees, inbetween well into the eight's, when the average temperature last week was 82 degrees. we are fighting the cool down already. we've got temperatures that will be about 80 degrees today, then the 70s monday, tuesday, and the average high this week still dropping at 81 degrees. future weather, we're fine, this is eagles game time. looks like we're looking at some sunshine out there, really nothing to deal with, but monday we start to see some of the clouds to the south, because of that front. this picture might change with maybe some rain coming in here. so we will continue to monitor that over the next couple of days. otherwise, 80 today. shore, 78, poconos,
75 degrees. it is going to be much more comfortable, and it is not fall, but fall's not far away. fifteen more days, september 22, we see fall. so look for temperatures of 80, winds out of the north about ten, 62 degrees tonight, comfortable night tonight. and our temperatures over the next couple of days, very acceptable, 70s, right around 80 degrees, the next few days. todd? >> carol, thank you. time now to check the roads. that bridges us to ann evans at the cbs-3 traffic center. morning, ann. >> morning, todd. construction to tell you about. the blue route northbound northbound lanes right of your screen, saint david's, road construction set up northbound between exit nine, broomall, to exit 13, saint david's exit. highway reduced to one lane, left lane getting by, and we do have slow traffic intermittently now. this pattern will be picked up, it actually will be pick up temporarily at 5:00 p.m. for eagles traffic. and it will be put back in place from 9:00 p.m. tonight to 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. so, we will have to contend with this basically the whole
