you can pick it right out on radar, where we turn our focus next, here's the three hour loop of the storms pushing through, at this point, no lightning reported, it is all just win driven rain really, guys. so you know, that's what you will be coming up against here, very, very strong winds driven rain, if you are trying to travel through this, and right here, this is the guy we're tracking for the potential of severity with heavy downpours and the wind. zeroing in on tax looks like it is about ready to come down on kennett square, downingtown, for example. we will get some of the precipitation rates out of this, we zero in on some of the darker shades, and there are indications from doppler that you're seeing almost two and three quarters inches per hour. obviously it won't be raining for full hour, but that's pounding rain that's going to just drench you and certainly lead to blinding travel for you. so, try to slow it down out there, don't even leave the house if you can spare the time until this get out of here, you can really see nice center of circulation back here, over the great lakes region, residual moisture

clearing out completely by the time we hit friday. that bodes very well, obviously, for the championship parade we were just talking about. breezy day, cooler day, but hey, at least it is dry. we'll have that on our side. another disturbance comes saturday, yes, a couple of snow showers are very possible, out of that, it will be cold enough to support it, i but i don't think do you have worry about accumulation out of it, thank goodness for. that will still chilly sunday, at least the sun is back, should rebounds to more seasonable territory in time for the phillies home opener, as well. so that is some better news down the road. >> yes. >> exactly, thank you very much, katie. meanwhile, coming up: video sure to put a smile on your face, we're back in two and
