is that it is definately still very warm outside. still feels like august, however, the worse humidity getting scaled back. so kind of a balancing act. it really does feel very warm outside. but, really, isn't as humid, technically, as it was yesterday. i mean, it may be tough to talk, felt like pea soup, could you cut it with a knife. ah, just glows. >> any improvement is a good improvement. >> all-in-all, i know you're not a fan of this really excessive warmth here, jim, but still dead well for the rest of the day, another real nice afternoon, all things considered. it just doesn't feel like october. you're in the going to have that christmas -- crispness to the air, not that kind of air mass, but there are some changes, and pattern change, that awaits us it, will bring in some rain, also bring in some cooler conditions. let's take to you storm storm scan, show you the regional view first, at the moment pretty quiet. we had what was left anyway of nate crossing through yesterday. that is now making its full departure, in fact, already long gone, but we do have another system already getting its act together.
and it is already bringing in some pretty heavy rain and thunderstorms, in fact, back toward really just where the mississippi meets the ohio. when you look at this, bit of wider zoom for one thing, but also more detail, you can start to make out this comma shape, the classic mid latitude cyclone shape. it will come in two pieces, two separate fronts, warmfront followed by cold front. there is an area of high pressure far off to the north, essentially going to help steer. >> this but the bottom line here is this, i suggest taking the wet weather gear with you, both tomorrow, and thursday, and we will take you into future weather, jump to 7:00 a.m. wednesday. by this point, we may see at least little bit of sun initially, but the rain and the moisture already going to be overtaking our area, so, if anything, at least start to see clouds building, but also some rain starting to over spread the region. and notice it is generally scattered, but, you know, you could ends up with a few drenching pockets of rain along the way, that's why i say have the umbrella with you , that will continue, again , in the form of a cold front crossing through. late wednesday night, then
into thursday. and some that far rain could also be quite heavy. we could always use the rain, right? so, we're not necessarily in a major deficit right now. but, we will take that, then we should start to clear things out looking toward the weekend. let's briefly touch on the tropics. ophelia did become tropical storm, as of yesterday, and now it is still a tropical storm, with max sustained winds speeds 50 miles per hour , but i have to step to this side to show you where it is head. so often these storms go to the west, recur every and go to the north. not this one it, will make strange path, head east, northeast, it may even just barely brush by the azores islands, but for the most part not any direct threat to land, at least not right now, maybe it becomes a european issue, down the road. but certainly not a concern for us. it is already hundreds of miles east, so not even chopping up the surf here at home. dew point currently stand. remember, lower the dew point, the drier the air. so very warm outside. but dew point is technically below where it feels quote
unquote steamy outside or at least beginning to feel humid. that will benchmark about 65. so it could be a heck of a lot worse. granted as you're into southern new jersey, or into delaware, still in the upper 60s, does still feel touch humid. but is it 70s on the dew point feel like yesterday? no. so it is at least a little bit of relief for you in that regard. wind flow is technically out of the west northwest in most locations cents, that's helping matters, as well, drier air can come in from that location, from our friends in canada, sending it down our way. 81 degrees already, outside palmyra cove nature park, where do you have at least little cloud cover. very quickly jump you right out to the seven day forecast, take a look moving forward. both wednesday, thursday, turning cooler but again those daisy highly suggest the wet weather. guys? >> all week long here on " eyewitness news" we're spotlighting some of the community partners as way for us to share hey you can get involved. >> today focusing on the ronald mcdonald house and its show your stripes campaign. the ronald mcdonald house is a home away from home for sick
