>> this is one of the pocono camera shots over the course of the last couple of minutes i've seen this shaking around wind picking up but actually up at the blue mountain far off to the north of philadelphia. next up live neighborhood network shot outside middle township high school where the clouds starting to thicken here it is still milder however, the clouds are there, because of this latest front lifting in. what you notice, little bit here at least in the last few hours how heavier rounds every rain have fizzled little bit. >> you could see shower, you already are obviously, through the central delmarva, and you might even see that pick up across some of the shower towns out in new jersey. >> this is starting to strength, really evolve, warmfront, cold front still way back over the plane states, but eventually both of those fronts do cross through. so the meantime it axe like
this is system essentially going to get sort of stuck. so we will see some showers, popping up, and hit and miss fashion tomorrow with that same front. notice, it doesn't really go anywhere. looks like high pressure will try to bill down, shove this off to the southwest little bit. but we are allowing for the chance, maybe, of a shower, not a guarantee, something we want to keep ion. but regardless looks like we will moderate into the 70s again, thursday not looking bad at all with sunshine, that front still near. but it doesn't look it will be close enough to give me wet weather rather just little cloud cover. walking you through future weather here the rest of the day, look what happens with at least what future weather predict, it will all fizzle, wet weather currently out there. so again primarily expecting clouds across most of the region. say for south of the city may end up with shower. that will also be true later tonight. into tomorrow, could be little more widespread. still scat nerds nature. but over spreading more of the delaware valley with that system pushing through here. and then, come wednesday, front will still be nearby. meanwhile, current winds
speeds, definitely noticeable breeze. that's for sure. either coming out of the west or the southwest, regardless, i noticed it myself, just having been out on the skydeck, so i had to grab the brush before coy come back on television again, be wary, notice the breeze out here today. tomorrow expecting temperatures to take little bit of modest hit with the clouds and showers around, mid 60s at best, rebounds quickly right back into the mid 70s, in the wake of the warmfront, dealing with, again, some more sunshine here looks like for mid week. by friday though cold front comes along, will bring in the threat for nor showers, and probably few thunderstorms, too. >> i'm already looking at the weekend. sorry, you know me, i just push fast forward and i keep going. >> immediately go do it. >> another look at yesterday's race for the cure when the "eyewitness news" family comes together to join the fight against breast cancer, more than 125,000 people including thousands of breast cancer survivors and their families, filled the parkway on mothers day. the race for the cure raised approximately $2 million this year. tremendously moving day on the parkway. >> uh-huh. >> very much so.
