well, we've had day seven of our heat wave and now day eight could come with some pretty strong and even severe thunderstorms. that's why today's a first alert day. damaging winds would be the main threat but there's still a chance that there could be a tornado or two around. significant reports of large hail. now, you could see visibility is excellent this morning, although the humidity is up a bit from yesterday. it's 84 degrees. it feels like 86. the wind is out of the west at 14 miles an hour. and we're in the upper 70s to the mid-80s at the moment. only 78 in westchester. that's one of the cooler spots. and we're in the 80s even toward the beaches today. and it's all about the wind direction. the winds today, so far today, is a land breeze out of the
west. so it's 86 degrees in beach haven while it's 88 at atlantic city airport. not much of a difference today. probably get to 90 at some dell beaches today. the threat tracker is for later today and into this evening. this is especially true for delaware and south jersey. the farther north and west you are, the lower all of these things would be. the flood threat overall, relatively low. lightning and high winds are fairly high. the hail threat is much higher than normal. and the tornado threat is even a little higher than you would normally get on a severe weather day. the highest risk is in delaware and south jersey. as you can see. and there's nothing on radar now, but we're talking about development later on today. we had those storms that were really powerful to the west as they came across. the greatest amount of damage
was in berks county with those. now we have a lull. there is nothing developing around the area. we don't expect it to develop for a few hours. but as you'll see on this futurecast, hour by hour, we're concentrating now on delaware and south jersey because that's where the storms are going to be concentrated as we go through the afternoon. so, they're going to build up. they're going to be moving today. these are not going to be stationary thunderstorms. and they're going to have some pretty gusty winds with them. the strongest look like they're going to be in, let's say, sussex county in delaware so the delaware beaches are vulnerable. cape may as well. and then later this evening we may see that break up a bit, but not totally until later on tonight. you can see here at 10:00 tonight and we still have pretty heavy thunderstorms in parts of the area. there's one right over dover at 11:00 tonight. but once this moves off, we get
some dry air for a while. high pressure builds in as we get into the day tomorrow. that's going to keep us dry wednesday and thursday, and also help bring the temperature down. but this storm coming in from the west, this is likely to bring rain in starting thursday night, perhaps, and especially friday and friday night to give us some wet weather in parts of our area. some parts could get a lot of rain out of that one. we'll be hot and humidity this afternoon. thunderstorms developing, especially in delaware and south jersey. high temperatures getting into the low 90s. this will make it day eight of the heat wave. wednesday, most likely below 90, but even if we don't get it tomorrow, it's gone below 90 on thursday. but you'll notice that lower humidity tomorrow. much lower. than there's that heavy rain threat for friday, friday night, maybe even into early saturday.
and you don't see 90s after today. >> yeah, i guess not. thanks, glenn. well, call it the big chill. ladies, another 90-degree day and you're wearing a sweater inside work. if you wonder why guys don't feel the same way, researchers say there's a scientific explanation for that office chill. sharing just got a little more difficult. the new limits coming to your amazon prime membership.

nbc10 chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> the first alert is to alert you to something that's going to happen later on. for example, severe storms, at least in parts of the area, with some damaging winds and even the possibility of hail or even a tornado or two in the area. now, the biggest threat is going to be the wind and also lightning. the flood threat today is lower than average for severe weather day. the hail threat higher and tornado threat a little higher as well. the area where this is most likely to occur is in delaware and extreme south jersey. the farther north and west you are, the lower the chance of any kind of thunderstorms, let alone severe storms. and the farther south you are in this area, especially, let's say, sussex county in delaware or cape may county in new jersey, you have the highest risk of getting some of those storms. but that would come much later,
maybe even into this evening. we're in a lull now. there's absolutely nothing on the radar. but there will be showers and storms developing as we go through the afternoon, it will start off isolated, but to have the potential to grow pretty quickly and develop a lot of lightning and gusty winds. these are going to be moving. they're not going to be stationary storms. so, some storms will get severe. north and west there isn't much at all. that dryer air is going to affect all of us and help end the heat wave. details on both of those things with the seven-day in a few minutes. camden county officials confirm its first human case of west nile virus. a 60-year-old belmar man checked into kennedy health system with symptoms that began at the end of july. he was released july 17th. officials say you should use insect repel atlanta and wear long sleeves and pants if you spend a lot of time outdoors

it's 87 in dover and millville. the west wind is the land breeze today, so it's even warm at the beaches. so, not a lot of relief from the heat. at the beaches today. now, the flood threat for later today is not very high because these storms are going to be moving. there is likely to be a lot of lightning with these storms and also some high winds, maybe damaging winds. and some large hail, which has an increased possibility over the normal kind of weather threat day. the highest threat is in delaware and south jersey. especially central and southern delaware. the farther north and west you are, the greater the chance you have of getting through the rest of the day with no rain at all, let alone severe weather. you got your share overnight with some big thunderstorms, a lot of lightning. just as it got to philadelphia and into much of new jersey it weakened. we are definitely in that lull now.
there is some moisture back west of new york state. this is going to be stuff that's developing hour by hour. that's what we're going to be watching and i'll be updating you on twitter and facebook with the radar and warnings that do come out this afternoon. now, you can see that by 3:00, we don't have a whole lot of activity around, but any one of those storms is capable of becoming a pretty strong one. you see the red, that's the little core of very heavy rain, probably a lot of lightning with that. there's another one just east of the philadelphia area. you can see how they're moving straight to the east today. we have strong winds at higher levels. that's likely to cause some of those strong winds. look at that. by 7:00 tonight, delaware beach is getting pounded by heavy showers and storms. there could be some more even later on this evening, as you can see. so, it's not just going to be a couple of hours that we're just going to watch like a line go
