378 in the distance, south mountain out there. all pretty visible. you will not have a view like this every where. we have seen some to go developing and quite a to locations, keyword is it is patchy but still out there because we are gathering more moisture in the atmosphere and that is allowing combination of light wind for that if you go to form. to watch for it, and we are going to see it at worse drop below a half hyle. we have seen that already. as we take you out to the the eyewitness weather watchers, we have a couple report here and there generally mid 50's up and down at least across delaware river. 55 degrees from ken this morning. he does have a handfull of cloud overhead. let's see if i can find one more outlined here, here we go, we will go out to chester county where 54 for tran. we have more cloud then anything in nottingham. humidity climbing up, up to 98 . indicative of the fact that moisture is building in the
atmosphere and allowing for eventually a couple of showers or then are storms to rumble through. now we could use some rain at this point. we think pretty decent deficit since january 1st, back to the beginning of the the year, we are at this point for and three-quarters of an inch shy of where we should be and we have had 30.43 inches since january is and the usual is 35 and change. we could use rain but it does appear that this cold front will be decaying a little bit when it comes to the moisture content. it is still potent cold front and lives up to its name with cold air it brings us but you can see that moisture is being shunted off to the north here. we're going to allow for shower or thunderstorm but doesn't look like more than thinking very scattered and mainly within window of two to 6:00 p.m. for the wet weather to arrive. there is a chance depending on how your plans layout here you could getaway without an umbrella which is news. who wants extra gear if you do not need it. behind the cold front we will see color contours get darker
as we look ahead to friday. green, blue, stay over our area, through the weekend. you will see time a lapsing here and eventually we will feel it a rebound as the chill, again gets pushed away. for now expect that, at least for right now we will end up with cool air the next couple of days and we can expect over the course of the eyewitness weather seven day that majority of the forecast is where it should be. today it is a anomaly. seventy-six is not where we should be. with the showers or then are storm that comes through and cold front itself they get knocked back. we have wind to contend with, high will reach 60, cool enough but cooler by comparison. win makes it feel cooler rain then three days straight of upper 50's for you but with some sunshine at this point election day is looking to feature just sunshine. weather will in the play a role in getting folks out to vote but we expect quiet weather just in general once we get past this cold front. today is action day, meisha. >> all right, katie, thank you
