cloud out there for many of you to get in that supermoon viewing opportunity here. but, the light of day eventually will skew that view. up with us right now, maybe during the commercial break, let's go step outside real quickly. i personally did notice how much brighter it was, so, you know, it really is just a moonlit sky for us. and certainly the city skies, also, helped to light it up out there. thirty-four, the current temperature at palmyra cove. where we are seeing at this point virtually no wind. and temperatures obviously off to pretty colds start. that's running theme. we talked about that possibility of wet weather, and it is pretty good shot for a lot to ends up with wet weather, because of this guy, combination of coastal system, which a lot of times you hear the words coastal system, and it starts to instill, you know, some fear in people. but this is really going toned up being a rain producer for us. bringing with it some beneficial rain certainly, but not necessary lay lot to really put a good dent in our rainfall deficit right now. we will talk about those and the in a second. so bracket first. this afternoon we begin to see as early as noontime clouds
building in south to north, pretty much overtake the entire side through the course through mid to late day, even as early as this evening, but specially over night. showers do become more of running theme. not everyone getting hit at the exact same time. see how it is spreading over a better portion of the area. then about this same time, tomorrow, i would say take the umbrella with you. you will see better batch of rain moving on through. and it lingers possibly even into the early afternoon, sort of rotates away from south ton ors. so mainly first half of the day the showers do arrive, but not talking about major amounts here, at most, we could see, upward of three quarters after inch, what our mod rest predict, but then you have the gfs, another one of the reliable models it, may only be a couple hundreds of an inch. so i think very much location dependent, and if you get stuck under one of the heavier pocket every rain, good thing. for now expecting sunshine everywhere, clouds building high of 61. we bottom out to 45 through the overnight, showers start
to develop, again, south to north, that will be the theme of the first half of tomorrow. there could be some heavier pockets of rain, but call it just general batch of showers. and then we do start to see the rebounds on the thermometer specially come friday. sixty-six, sunshine, to wrap up our week. meisha, over to you. >> friday looks beautiful, katie, all right. thank you so much. good morning, everyone, happy monday. what we are looking at right now, 309 between broad street and walnut. what happened was train gate was down right around in this area. so, it was down, there was no train, it was down for quite some time. we were seeing some cars drive around that area. what was happening, they believe it was a malfunctioning train gate. but when you don't know for sure, you have all of these vehicles swerving around there. that's when we can really see some myfoxphilly.com. good news is that has just now been cleared. so looking good in this area. just heads up on that, though, in case, that gate were to come down again, again, they are believing that was malfunctioning train gate. everyone was just driving around it. looking at the vine, looking good, both moving in the westbound and eastbound direction, you take this
