>> i'm bracing myself for the forecast. >> it won't be that bad. if you remember early in the morning monday, then that night, we had the really heavy storms rumble through philadelphia. we're looking at similar variety of that same kinds of scenario, happening for basically a different reason, but it is going to sort of have the ends, same end product. so, what we're facing here, more showers, more thunderstorms, they could be locally not just drenching, but, also, potentially severe. that is where we turn our focus first, we take you out to the maps. we do have slight risk posted just to the southern portion of the delaware valley here, mainly through the delmarva peninsula, although marginal risk for damning thunderstorms, as well, even into southern new jersey, that said, both of the heaviest thunderstorms and the worse of them, i should say, goes down toward southern maryland,
virginia that said, as well, we will see a lot of moisture with this, if you stepped outside at all today you know how muggy it is, we have the flashflood watch that we showed you moment ago. and because of all of the heavy rain currently moving through it is going to accumulate pretty quickly, and maybe have hard time draining in decks to humidity, you ends up with such a saturated air mass, to allow for really heavy downpours, combine with slow moving front, you got yourself perfect recipe to see some heavy showers, heavy thunderstorms rumble through, generally, in scatter fashion, but they'll easily slow anyone down that's trying to travel underneath those pockets. so, periods of heavy rain are on the way, really not tracking anything locally yet, say back toward west most chester county, in the meantime, though, we can end up with over 2 inches the out
of this by the time we hit friday evening, that's when the flashflood watch will actually go out of effect, as long as it stands as it currently is with the timing there. the one thing we always say, please don't disregard this, you never, ever drive-thru flooded roadway. remember, it only takes couple every towns actually sweep an s.u.v. away, so cannot mess around with that stuff. what we're facing later in the day, future weather predict it, it looks like those showers and storms will, again, be spotty, not everyone's getting hit here. but where you have got them, if it actually pans out, verifies over new castle county and kent, traveling route one, for example, you're going to be getting drenched trying to commute through that. it does look like another cell will likely be firing up, over portions of philadelphia county, southeastern montgomery and bucks, as we head toward the typical evening rush, and even through 6:00 p.m., it is casino of slow my great to the northeast, so slow moving pockets of the heavy rain, that is going to be a problem, overnight, more of the same. we'll have to face the very same thing then looking ahead
to tomorrow. meantime, clouds starting to build, look little gray, ominous here at bernville. bucks county, actually air temperatures flirting with or already into the 90's, probably have another two, 3 degrees here up our sleeves before the storms get going. and before things really start to get underway with those storms, firing up. so the key word is scattered. but where ever you have got the storms, i just keep the umbrella on stand by if you plan to be out in this today. you don't want to risk it, your hair is too lovely. >> i've had my umbrella in my briefcase for the past month. well, if you forgot to get your powerball ticket last night you're in luck. nobody hit the jackpot. now climbed to get this $478 million. that's a lump sum of about 331 million after taxes. it is the fifth largest powerball prize of all time, the eighth largest lottery in the u.s. history. the next drawing is schedule for this saturday. your odds of winning about one in 292 million. we'l
