stretch. we're now at 22 days above 90 this year beats last year and it beats 2013. got a ways to go to beat 2012 and 55 days back in 2010 does not look like we'll hit that thank goodness. 8-day heat wave with the hottest days on either end last tuesday and wednesday and again today and yesterday. longest heat wave we've had for two years since july 14th to the 21st of 2013. but now we're saying goodbye to the heat wave. this front is clearing the coast tonight. high pressure builds in tomorrow is gorgeous. nice breeze from the north and west. low humidity. temperatures still in the 80s but perfect summer day. thursday is even cooler and then clouds and showers start to build in thursday afternoon and you can see most of the this rain will try to mess to us the south but it all depends which computer model you look at. this one keeps it off to the south but if we take look at the european model watch what happens the rain comes further north and he is specially from the city on south we get the chance for pretty steady rain thursday night into friday. so that remains to be seen i think we have to plan for at leave the chance for rain
thursday night. and some showers and clouds hanging around on friday. overnight partly cloudy comfortable 68 degrees and for your wednesday just gorgeous 88 mostly sunny nice and warm and less humid down the shore looking great as well once we get the storms out. wednesday is mostly sunny and again less humid the high 85. your "eyewitness weather" seven day forecast look at the difference here. thursday 82. friday 79 and the day shouldn't be quite as scary as the icon suggests there maybe a shower here or there and it looks like wee clear out in time for the week and with highs in the 80s. be sure to wake up with "eyewitness news" in the morning morning. meteorologist katie fehlinger will track tomorrow's weather our team starts at 4:30 a.m. right here on cbs3. >> hey that's a pretty good looking forecast for august. >> yes. >> 70s. >> gettinggetting much better. >> i wouldn't mind a cloudy day in the 70s right now. >> you might just get your wish. >> break out the platform shoes.
