>> look really gray out there. >> quite a mess after morning, but breitbart blue skies in some spots. right now. >> really? >> this is your frontal boundery for you, with your you have got it marching east, all the storms essentially in new jersey now, and as a result you've had the chance to really clear out behind us, especially back to berks county. wind advisory over, storms pretty much done. it is moving, yes, this thing trucking right along, so still somewhat slow. taking it time even still but at least the further inland you are the more likely it is that you are in fact going to see little sunshine and no need to worry about any additional storms, again, the further inland you g so we start it off by a view of one of the cameras, nice brightening sky in places like bethlehem, for example, outside here northampton county, little more than we usually see dark and earl when on in the morning, but yes, you can tell things are still little damp. the wet weather has basically wrapped up here in the lehigh vale. i don't think you have to deal
with it much more beyond this point. meanwhile, elsewhere, it is kind of the opposite. it looks like skies are trying to clear off in the distance. i like this shot just because it shows you what your windshield would look like if you didn't have the benefit of the windshield wipers here this afternoon. this is take friend live neighborhood network out palmyra cove nature park, right on cue, still indicating there are some winds that are still noticeable across the region though i think that the peak of them have basically already happened. from philly on inland. closer you get to the coast you could still have pretty gusty winds out, there as well as down through delaware. meanwhile we talk about storm scan, and the storm bringing all of this to us in the first place, so very well organized storm system, yes your eyes do not deceive up toward lake superior, you have got a little bit of snow currently falling, it is mainly north of the canadian border, but it is still out there. tis the season getting closer and closer to the time frame. but our weather still incredibly mild for now. the cold front associated with this storm is what's really going to bring about the change for our area. already starting to take place
certainly with the kind of weather we've experiencer dollars since this morning, but yes, real nice back edge to this, at this point, we've had a lot of hours, that this has been trucking east, throughout the course of the morning, we had wet weather all morning long, now it is more of solid line, stretching into part of new jersey. so, i think your basically done with the rain into eastern pennsylvania, say for maybe, you know, this east edge, clipping parts of bucks county. but for the most part the rain basically done. and the other update here, so the good update whether it comes to the severe weather risk is that we had gone from slight risk to now down to just marginal risk of severe weather. that, too, that threat starting to shift little bit. nan our favor no less. that's good news. in fact, this risk extended back into parts of southeastern pa. that too is diminishing, also lowering the risk as well. meanwhile, winds speeds as they currently stands, they are still noticeable. it is still a very windy afternoon. not quite as much as we had seen when those really gusty showers had moved in early this morning. but still, with the winds
basically straight up out of the south, it is into the teens. you notice that when you walk out the door, as we track future weather, though, i put it out there initially, this is over done. you don't have this much over spreading precipitation right now across p a and new jersey, however, i like the timing on this, and this is also speeding up. it is moving along. so the good news here, is that even by 3:00 p.m., kids getting out of school. unless in eastern counties or maybe having to travel up to new york sit you should be drying out, i don't know about the soccer fields drying out just yet, but at least the rain won't necessarily falling from the sky. maybe there is left over little sprinkle. really t the winds, however, still noticeable through the evening drive. then later on tonight, i think boot time kate is on the air at 11:00 p.m. all out to sea and long gone, may not be totally clear overhead, but it is going at least have dried out. 70s up and down i59 as we currently speak, 65 up in mount pocono. for late october, you like mild air, this is a temperature profile for you.
however, as the storms continue to maurice, further inland you are, the more clearing you are going to experience, and the coal air hasn't completely caught up to us just yet. still expect we hit the mid 70s, there pretty much all morning, then later on tonight when the skies continue to clear out. we also cool down in a pretty big way. some, now that the cool air can catch up, where do we ends up with nose dive by tomorrow? about 10 degrees just shaved off the daytime high. but the good news here, we're drying out. just some beneficial rain. we will have couple every strays days of very nice weather although we have to keep an eye on sunday, guys corks see pretty drenching rain in time for the eagles game something we must monitor so stick with us. >> the water rolls right off my eagles suit. >> thanks, katie. well, there is sacrifice, and the important lesson now teaching. >> meisha joins us with today's love it. >> after being deployed for nearly a year, a mother enlisted in the u.s. navy surprised her son at his florida middle school. emotional reunion, and one
many can relate to. take a look. >> i'm nervous and excited and i'm just ready to have him in my arms. >> a petty officer third class with the us nay. >> i i have been gone for almost a year. so i went on a deposition employment in 2013 and 14, i was going to surprise my song then, but my mom passed away, and i ended upcoming home early. he knew i was coming home. so this is to make up for. >> deployed in tent month in west africa. phonecalls, messaging and texting apps served as her tool to stay in contact with her son gabrielle when she was away. >> while i'm shaking, i haven't seen him in seven months. february 6 is the last time i saw my son. apparently he's gone a lot since i left. >> her son was in for a big surprise. during what seemed like a normal day of class. of course, she says, that this particular embrace had been planned since before her deposition employment. >> look at this. i can put my arm around you. >> and just walk, like what is
this? >> what, what? for real? >> yes, physical appearances may have changed but the emotional connection remains the same both mom and son understands no matter how far apart they are no distance could ever break that bond. he -- she said he's my life, my world, this is why i'm in this uniform. >> those stories never get old >> never get old. i think you're getting little sneak peak of someone's live then you go i can relate in some way. >> always amazing how just putting your arm around someone can mean so much when you haven't seen them in so long. how wonderful. >> i'm into that. miss bang, your sacrifice is not in vein. and one day the little ones will respect the sacrifices you've made in so many others have, as well, thank you for your service, love it. if you have any other inspirational ideas please sends them my way on either facebook or twitter.
