12:20 pm
cleveland, headed our way, bridges a little bit after different scenario for us, more of the wet weather certainly tomorrow. tonight actually stays basically dry, not until tomorrow morning we actually is to worry about wet weather anywhere, even for most of you, i think you get through the majority of the morning without any wet weather because we're really waiting on cold front to cross through. it is the warmfront that may bring in the snow and ice that we talked b ironically enough, warmfront but let's get you out there. start with wider zoom on storm scan3, which at the moment ushering in clip elf clouds, no harm, no foul. still very pleasant fall day. virtually, no winds to speak of. and it will stay that way through the rest of the day, here is the storm system just talking about. it is starting to gather more organization, this same time yesterday still pulling out of the front range of the rockies, not a lot more just open fields, to sort of organize, little more little clean on radar. so you have warmfront right now lifting into the great lakes, pushing right into lake erie what's headed our way. through the overnight, then there is the colds front,
12:21 pm
that's going to trail pass it, come through tomorrow afternoon at the onset. so as we track this rain, you know, the warmfront again what bridges in the next chance for us to see maybe little snow or ice. specific to the far northern counties. so talking pocono region, maybe extending into the northern lehigh valley at further south, but otherwise, the rest of us, you're dry through the course of the morning. it is into the afternoon that the rain from the actual cold front is going to cross through, and it looks like once it starts, it may not let up for most of the day. but then behind it, we clear out very quickly friday, and back in to a breeze. i like the way that we can put things into just put point format, how this will all shake out. only talking rain amounts through the course of afternoon and evening of up to or maybe slightly exceeding half inch or so. that morning mix of maybe snow or ice is going to, again, stay to the north, poconos best chance to see it, you travel to i80, for example, that's where you are going to face these potentially slick roads. otherwise, it is really just wet roads, which naturally will slow you down, but the
12:22 pm
p.m. drive that gets most impacted by that, everywhere else. looking at the future ice amount, just put it into motion, that's not much. you know you're talking maybe a hundred of an inch. so it is not enough to cause any kind of power outages, nothing like that, but all you need is 100 of an inch, maybe couple slick spots, snow may come in with this as well, likely if it is going to accumulate at all, on grassy surfaces, grounds still too warm. getting to the point where you see the transitions taking place, the fall beginning to peak, know chances start to become more numerous, right now actually got peak foliage up in some of the mountain us terrain, up through the lehigh valley, getting pretty close, around the rest of the delaware valley, but just one example every those beautiful colors, this is live look for you, over the vast more country inchin, see the pretty orange, yellow, start to pop into the shot here. just really lovely time of year. the rest of the afternoon looks great. if you want to go take advantage of maybe leaf peeping, as they sometimes call t meanwhile, outside
12:23 pm
middle township high school, couple of clouds. beautiful afternoon. modest breeze, most every you not seeing too much of a breeze, but it is out there at least in cape may courthouse. look forward in this forecast, tomorrow really the wettest day of the pack. i do think we've got the shot on sunday, specifically, to maybe still see shower, there is disturbance crossing through, but otherwise nice warm up that takes place here. actually hitting 70 by sunday. so we keep some that far typical warmth, even on halloween, looks seasonable by that point. so the worse of the chill is gone. >> nice good for the kiddos. >> definitely. >> all right, well, are you thinking about changing up your yoga routine? well, two women have a solution that promises not to get your goat. >> tomb goat? >> gilbert, arizona, $2 a piece to do downward dog with the creatures, the farm owners call it, for some, work out for others, for katie good way

i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.
