about 81 degrees for our normal high. so usually start off little cooler, mid 60s generally, then we have enough sunlight, enough solar energy at this time of the year to typically warm to the low 80s, real close to that today. not quite there. here's y take you out to "skycam 3", first and for most, isn't this beautiful view? i love the sunrise like this. when you have got some of the clouds sort of skew the color, it is so pretty out there right now, in atlantic city. really everywhere else. but the problem is, when we go next to storm scan3, you are going to see some clouds rolling through, even the last few hours place like kent county, delaware, quick little shower rolled through. i don't think that's necessarily going to be your norm today, but we do have high and low pressure sort of splitting our region in two. in other words, you can see, more sunlight if you go north and west, but probably going to be stuck in more clouds cover than anything, down toward the shore points here today. so six an is the current temperature, with pretty predominant northeasterly flow, in atlantic city, it is more northeast as well in philadelphia at the airport, but it is straight up out of the east in mount pocono.
that said, you're likely to end one more clouds through the southeastern half of our region, so here's how it sorts of breaks down region by region, coolest but brightest spot to the poconos. going to be stuck in the cloudy think with more than anything, again, that sort of gray sky, even though we do have some sunlight to start it off here at the shore, in philadelphia, yes, you're basically starting off mild enough that i think in philly the kids can get out the door without a jacket, later on today, it will be nice and mild for you. jess, over to you. >> thank you, katie. good morning, everybody, just 6:35. starting off pretty much with good morning, traffic wise, 6:35 again we head outside to our cameras right here on 422, just at 29. so headed eastbound, toward king of prussia, where you can see all of those headlights, really starting to slow up, just a bit, as they crawl toward the king of prussia area. and the talcony palmyra bridge scheduled for opening just around 64:50, we could see the boat just second ago in the camera, can't see it at this moment, but scheduled for 6:45, use the betsy ross

here. you see the eagles offensive line which would suffer injuries later in the game was pretty bad if the first half. and nick took five sacks throughout the game. here is the first fumble. and he holds the ball little too long, ukee, in the first half. everything from the dallas game last year, sort of came back as fans at the linc were saying what in the world is going on here? >> and jacks took advantage of the turnovers. >> now it, could have been worse, eagles blocked a field goal in the first half. >> right. >> missed another. could have been much worse than 17-nothing at the half. you know that stat, one in ooh since 1960. trail by 17 half time, but now two and 50. but the first half won just to obliterate forget the injuries, ineptitude, half time fans weren't too happy. >> when is an update on the injuries? >> mathis mri, maybe mcl, isn't as bad as cll, few weeks, maybe not the year, allen barber, see about the angle. >> second half, muff differ ren team, much different store. >> i little bit.
