7:46 am
boardwalk, yes, put on your cover up, wear whatever you want, it is boardwalk beach 74 degrees. it is comfortable enough to be out there in any kind of clothing you prefer. we are watching the ocean coming in. there is a a maryland rate risk of rip current on these shoreline and not every place has a life guard this early in the season. so be careful around jetty is a and that sort of thing. in general because ocean is a little active today. it is comfortable right now. we are looking at the some storms, a at this point not actually storms but just showers but storms that are popping up later on. once we get that day time heating and that thing and that adds lifts to the air and air gets energized there is moisture and you can get a downpour. right now we have seen these showers through allentown a few others are going up through the poconos. they will be scattered around. just as a little note coming up i just check the computer model it has change a lot from the last time i showed it to you. if you have already seen that,
7:47 am
no you haven't just hang in there. temperatures in the 70's right now and upper 60's and we are watching this front. this is still the same front coming through temperatures in the 80's today low pressure on that front enhances moisture that we get and we will find downpours on monday, it is just, where are you going to be getting one. and then on tuesday do we still see more of them? all right. here's the change, this computer model very latest run of it is saying that by 4:00 o'clock this afternoon we are still looking at sunshine and still dealing with the showers to the north but that change starts to come in, remember how it had moved to the south and i said oh, gee previously all of the heavy rain was to the north? well, it looks like they have shifted it all back to the north. so let's see obviously computer models don't have a terrific handle on this. that is why just pay attention over next few days to areas of rain showers thunderstorms. this is a look at midnight, with the heavier rain through poconos. this is 5:00 a.m. tomorrow
7:48 am
morning, and then we are looking at, 5:00p m and notice that instead of being draped across the south it is now, new york, trenton through philadelphia, and swinging up towards the allentown, area and we will keep that line going. so if this line doesn't move if that front stalls out you can get the training effect where it just rains over the same areas. so that is something we will be monitoring as we go through monday evening as this looks like at 8:00 o'clock monday night. this is 11:00 o'clock on monday. then this is tuesday we're still in the through with it. more showers. you may fine more showers on tuesday afternoon and then this computer model says some of those could be getting heavy. so we will continue to monitor. that notice that the change, in where we're finding some of the heavier rainfall amounts they have put them to the north. so, just know that rain is coming, and exactly where over your neighborhood, maybe shifting as well but it looks like there could be a soaking for a number of spots in our area over the next couple of days. mostly partly sunny today
7:49 am
with a chance of the a shower or thunderstorm. today mostly to the north but tonight we will pick up better chances of showers and thunderstorms. eighty-eight. humid. feeling every bit of this keep yourself cool. keep your pets as cool as you are. and then tonight 68 degrees. showers, thunderstorms can't rule out heavy rain and tomorrow there will be heavy rain in spots. locally heavy in spot here, spot there and then showers thunderstorms, tuesday we could be doing the very same thing again with this slow moving front but it should be gone by wednesday and we're looking at better weather after that. nicole? >> all right carol thank you. lets check on the roads and highways with ann evans good morning ann. >> good morning, nicole. we are looking at that coney palmyra bridge and it is open. the that is a tugboat both underneath. draw bridge is in the up position. tacony palmyra bridge is closed in both directions to traffic and this big tugboat both moved through. a nice scene there very nautical. and we will move the traffic cam, to the walt whitman bridge that is opened for
