looking off to the west here's a slow moving frontal boundary that will break us up, the worst of the heat. then it will take a while, this is a very slow moving system and high pressure is blocking it from moving through. we have scattered but locally very heavy scattered showers and storms. i would say many of you have a hot shot to stay totally dry out there not one drop of the rain but where we have pop up thunderstorms especially north and west, they could produce locally heavy rainfall which will do its part to cool you down. we will catch a break in the morning in the next couple of days but scattered showers and storms firing up tomorrow and that continues to be a theme for us down the road here. now as far as heat index values go, this is what you want to use as a gauge. worst and most brutal heat happening today, tomorrow, and saturday where it could feel as hot as 105, or 106 degrees but if we are technical these are values we expect to hit through sunday. very hot by the time we hit
monday, not as bad, still flirting with 90 and we should break worst of the humidity mid week. >> yikes, katie, thank you so much forewarnings, great advice, good morning, happy thursday, gateway to our weekend. as katie was just saying it was hot outside already. i felt it right away at 3:00 in the morning. schuylkill in the eastbound direction at girard this is what we are looking at this morning. fairly typical. a little bit what we typically see on a thursday in the 4:00 o'clock hour. vine is slow overnight, obviously westbound and eastbound side still closed between schuylkill and broad. make note of that for those who take that in the community. we have three accidents out there this morning, are first one main street at stanbridge street. second one will be hatboro york road at moreland avenue and your third accident of the morning is broomall media line road at west chester pike a lot of activity out there already and we have construction this particular 142 northbound ramp to route 130 that is just now reopen.
