12:20 pm
so he told barrel i when he's done with the car, he needs to pass it along, as well. >> i look at it like a pay forward thing. anybody ever in a chance to help somebody out, and in a position to do it, help them out. it really is what makes the world go around. >> as for barrel i, essay tending gordon state college as biology major, aspires to be a doctor, also aided by many other strangers with nearly $184,000 to through a go fund me page. he can't believe the outpouring of support. >> i just wanted to personally say thank you, so much, for all you have done for me. >> in northeast philadelphia, pat gallen, "eyewitness news". just a sweet story. >> it is really great. great for andrew here and good luck to fred. >> absolutely. just love stories like that. really, so nice. seeing sunshine out there, too, right now, things are brightening up nicely across the delaware valley, lovely news, if you have outdoor plans. i could still feel lingering shower for some of you, we will walk you through the possibility, generally
12:21 pm
speaking back in the sunshine, looks like it will stick around for the majority of the rest of the day here. still warm outside, also expecting to not get too quite the levels on the thermometer as we've seen in recent days. looking at storm scan, you can have pretty scattered showers, but they were bit more widespread, rolling on through early this morning, notice, what happens, the tail end of the loop. see few more bubble up here, back through north central pennsylvania, and some of that could survive and fire up here before said and done. so i don't want to totally rule out the possibility of left over shower, i would say more than anything expect to mix sun and clouds the rest of the day. this frontal boundery finally sort of sizzling away, but we are eventually going to see another front come our way, and i allude dollars to that earlier in the show. that comes by this weekend, and it is what finally breaks us of the worse of any heat, any humidity. so come tomorrow, we are back in the influence of high pressure for one day. and this particular model is picking up that maybe portions of the garden state see quick shower, generally looking sunny, just warm, and then by the weekend, this is the front
12:22 pm
that eventually is going to move through. and again, bring in new threat for more widespread showers and storms, i know it looks like it bulbs up hereby the time we hit saturday afternoon, but notice, it should be pretty scattered in nature. there will be shower, thunderstorm around on saturday, generally in the afternoon, or evening, and scattered in nature. and then, come sunday, we start to see maybe some more widespread and heavier thunderstorms coming in, especially sunday night. so, most of your weekends is looking partly sunny just little steamier and humid. meanwhile we have some tropical activities, tropical storm fiona out there. looking at the expected track here, expecting this will move nice and slowly. at this point, general northwest flow in terms of where it will actually go, bermuda, may need to be on guard, but still many, many days away. we will let you know if you have any travel interests out that way whether or not it is something that may end up becoming a lands falling issue. but i don't suspect that this will be a problem for the united states coastline. speaking of the united states
12:23 pm
coastline, beautiful day at the beach right now, have some showers, gray skies have since cleared here outside beach patrol headquarters in margate. so other than that spotty left over shower chance, that i want to allow for, looking at nice afternoon on the beach, water temperatures are little cooler today, 84 degrees, so the expected daytime high with nice low rip countries being, meanwhile, later tonight, under partly cloudy sky, stays nice and warm, phillies should play without any major hit here whatsoever, but as we look forward in the forecast again, steaminess returning for us this weekend, specifically, that is because, again, awaiting the full passage of our next cold front. so as that happens, watch for heavier around thunderstorms specially sunday night, and then skies start to clear out monday, and tuesday, wednesday, guys, look gorgeous right now. not just sunny but comfortable warmth, low humidity. >> i give that one a thumbs-up, or two.
12:24 pm
12:25 pm
12:26 pm
j so going to the young and the restless. they might just try to steel alex from us. >> oh, her role as abigail. >> and then he called her victoria and didn't bat an irish. >> go to jim's twitter page. >> we did our rehearsal. >> they should be hired. >> that's "eyewitness news" at noon, i'm jim donovan. >> i'm jim donovan. >> i'm katie fehlinger. always on line at for senate, a clear difference.
