because of these numbers. our dew points tell us about that saturation, at the surface, and when they are up into the upper 70s, certainly low eight's, just so incredibly humid, and steamy outside, and as we head into the day tomorrow, we will see some marginal improvement. our comfort index goes from really above inch suffer recall, down to owe press of, dew points low 70s, to near 70 degrees. hit close to the seven open degrees mark little later in the day. so feeling a little bit more comfortable. but overnight tonight, that is not the case. only falling back to 81 degrees, partly cloudy conditions, feeling like 90s all throughout the overnight. for the day tomorrow, close to record levels once again, 96 degrees the high temperature, record is 99. mostly sunny conditions, and some late day thunderstorms starting to fire. but, storms today were concentrated well west of the i95 corridor, berks county seeing most rain full, pick up quarter to half inch. did see some locally higher amounts, and that is evident on our doppler estimates, over the last couple of hours, parts of carbon, monroe county
