>> we take a look at what looks somewhat like an angry ocean out there. this is our new camera out in cape may. nice shot for you here, looks a little bit shaky, understands bridge. we do have pretty persistent tent winds out of the south- southwest, obviously wet out here, very dreary beginning to the afternoon. this is all from the renmant tropical moisture that had been nate.
technically post tropical cyclone, but it is primarily just a big nuisance for us, as we go back to storm scan3, and show you what's going on with this, really the bulk of the moisture at this point, locally, pent up over the garden state. that's where you're going to see the bulk of the steadiest, heaviest rain, still going to encounter spray from the vehicles, that kind of thing throughout the rest of the afternoon, likely few additional showers, this whole thing, though, again, pulling away, and then we're going to see frontal boundery drop in, knock at least the humidity back, because it has been so steamy. as we're still talking about tropics, let's also focus on the fact that we do have new named system, ophelia formed this morning, maximum sustained winds 40 miles per hour, moving very sluggishly. this is well out to sea. it is far east of bermuda. it is about 860 miles southwest of the azores islands here it, will really is going to just whoever, essentially, in the same spaces over the next couple of days. meanwhile, future weather does
show this system there is moisture from nate making its departure here. we are going to with time at least start to clear out. you may still see few residual showers before said and done. as we take a lack at the dew point, currently at 72 degrees , and that's incredibly steamy. so it feels down right oppressive out there. i don't think it will get much higher than the mid 70s, we don't want to classify it as unsufferable, but is close. future dew points start to drop off. this is tomorrow morning, at 4:00 a.m. low 70s, by the time you hit 8:00 a.m., mere few hours later, back down to the mid or 60s, 50's, so becomes more more comfortable as the day progress, stay in the low mid 60s, essentially region wide as the afternoon progresses, now, looking forwards from this point, we are expecting a large dome of high pressure to settle in. do still have potential for showers, i'll explain why in a second. however, this picture says it all. it is a live view from the live neighborhood network,
where i show this for specifically the reason that this could be your visibility, without the windshield wipers, in short, you're going to need to have them going. keep in mind if your windshield wipe remembers going your headlights must be on. all of the rules that go hands in hands when out in weather like this, now, beyond tomorrow, we certainly are very warm tomorrow. but beyond tomorrow, we see high pressure start to settle in. large canadian dome of t right on the cusp of it. we still cool off little bit here. may run into few showers, specifically wednesday, thursday, and friday, all future potential. but come thursday, friday, it is actually seasonable for a change. the last -- it doesn't last long but we'll take the october like temperature profile as long as we can get it, jim, back to you. >> indeed we'll take it, all week long here on "eyewitness news," spotlighting some of the community partners way for us to share some ways that you too can get involved. >> later this month, folks will lays up their tennis shoes and walk for autism awareness. the autism speaks walk is saturday october 21, and the event raises money for autism
