showers to our area. now, in addition to the satellite and radar, i also through in the color contour map watch this is showing you difference in the temperature reading. so you have your cold front pushing through, worse of any severe weather threat actually down through the deep south today. if you see how dark and the blue shades start to show up the further west you travel. that's the cold air starting to set until in the wake of this storm system. so it is a clash going on in the atmosphere. that is how you get this kind of stormy weather to form in the first place. so as we talk about severe weather threats, and how far that goes, i want to give you little primer course on there is there is a new set of classifications, been out for couple of season now, now we have five separate classifications for severe weather threats. on the highest level high risk, on the lowest set of the totem pole here at marginal. that is where we're going to fall tomorrow. so, our storm threat, sitting in the marginal risk, in other words, we could see the potential maybe isolated severe thunderstorm, main threats at this point though look like it would be heavy downpours, gusty winds, that come along with that, although the entire delaware valley including the lehigh valley
and pocono region is included in the risk, again for tomorrow. so walk you through future weather, the rest of the day, pretty much sitting here under, again, some sunshine, and few clouds starting to build, especially west to east, but we start to see by later tonight, long after the sun's gone down most likely, couple of scattered showers, spec link the radar. tomorrow ends up being the wettest time period. looks as though part of the morning drive will get impacted as the actual cold front crosses probably few residual shares then, too, the second half of the day get underway here, so see 5:00 p.m., may still be wet weather to dodge. so comes through sort of in off and on fashion through the day, not a wash out, but enough that i would keep the umbrella at the ready throughout the day. looks like may be two separate rounds, one comes in the morning, another comes later in the afternoon. look outside right now, live look for you outside middle township high school. beautiful blue skies, streaks of clouds, 59 degrees, not bad. by comparison, quite the darkening sky. the further inland you go. so taking you out to berks county kutztown where those clouds are starting to bill owe in.
and that's kind of what you are seeing that gradient form from west to east. so cloudier skies the further inland you are, still getting in on more sun than anything out toward the shore towns. but partly sunny skies what we call it, sort of split the difference there. 71 degrees the expected hi, we might do little bit better than that in some spots, depends where you are, how much sun you ends up with. watching for the showers to start getting triggered tonight. should be spotty lush any, with time should be series of rounds of wet weather comes in effect, everybody, so do watch for tomorrow. tomorrow still very warm. behind the cold front, cold air does eventually catch up to us. actually reinforcements come in saturday night into sunday, jim, so at 47 at best on sunday, and with the winds, it probably won't feel any better than the 30's. >> oh, last stretch of cold. once we get past this. >> we're sure hoping for that. >> no, i'm not a meteorologist, what the heck? >> thanks, katie, so much. long lines in california this morning for the roll-out of test less new electric cars. it is called the model three. and it is expected to have
