the front. definitely very clear line, that is going to be pushing through here. that said, you know where you are sitting in at least general risk for thunderstorms here today up and down most of the east coast. don't have slight risk or even marginal risk for severe weather but will likely be couple of rumbles every thunder out there along with brief but locally heavy downpours, just a threat today here. also some gusty winds that might pop up with that, too. let's track all of this for you. area of low pressure far re moved from our area off to the north. so sitting in the warm sector of the storm right now. the cold front is what again is really going have main impact on us today t looks primarily like it will fire up through generally late afternoon, toward night fall, and linger that night, in scattered fashion, but, because it is a little bit later it, might linger with a shower on saturday morning. then you see how the clouds start to break apart by noontime at the latest, and we end up with sunshine across the region, high pressure settling itself for sunday. looks like awesome day. let's time this out. this morning, sunny breaks, warm, breezy, scattered showers, perhaps thunderstorm
this afternoon, tonight that will be the story as well. then look ahead to tomorrow, probably lingering shower there. p.m. shower, t storm, that's the story. 78 degrees. it is very warm before that front crosses, and later tonight we dip it down to 58 degrees. still with some showers around. boding well through the rest of the weekend, sunday looks awesome, monday ramp up to 77 degrees under sunshine. and fresh round of showers and storms likely return by tuesday. meisha, over to you. >> little bit of roller coaster right. all right, katie, thank you so muchment good morning, everyone, hand i friday to you. taking some of the first peaks outside, schuylkill headlight moving in the eastbound direction right here looking good. keeping my eye on the eastbound. normally where i see the build up happen earlier rather than later. westbound looking good. looking nice and quiet. this is right around spring garden, exactly what we want to see on early friday morning, especially. new jersey 42 freeway northbound at creek road, this is what you are looking as you approach 295, looking good, i would say holding steady as far as looking at this camera, 4:30, looking good in new jersey. vine all clear. looking good.
