11:14 am
tornadoes had wind speeds over 100 miles per hour. oklahoma's bracing for more severe weather one day after several tornadoes were reported across the state. one twister was caught on camera about 60 miles just south of oklahoma city. officials warn residents in the area to take shelter as the storm ripped through the countryside. tornadoes across the state have been blamed for two deaths so far. severe weather rolled through the little rock, arkansas, area late last night. sending trees toppling cars as well as homes. the storm also knocked out power to many homes. fortunately, no one suffered any injuries. >> a canadian official says the oil producing city of ft. mcmurray has been saved from a raging wildfire. fire chi says 85% of the city remains intact. a break in the weather has made officials optimistic that they could soon get the upper hand on the massive fire that has scorched an area bigger than los angeles.
11:15 am
>> incredible video from the tornadoes to the results of those fires. and all we have are cloudy skies, cool temperatures, and a little light rain or drizzle. by comparison, not bad at all. temperatures in the 50s throughout the area. cloudy skies throughout the area. philadelphia international reporting a little light rain. other places just reporting the cloudy skies. in delaware, the temperatures are down. newark is 53. as is claymont, odessa, 53. middletown, 54. farther to the south, you can see the wind is coming in off the ocean, and so obviously, it's going to stay a little cooler. lewis, rehoboth beach, bethany beach, and temperatures not going anywhere there. and it's cool and damp, but just for one day. this is not a repeat of last week. we're going to see the
11:16 am
temperatures, well, keeps flipping back and forth for me. go down one day, and then back up tomorrow. back into the 70s. the live radar shows mainly light rain across the area. looks a lot worse than it really is. because you saw many of those reporting stations just giving cloudy skies. what's happening here is the rain is falling into very dry air. near the ground. and it's evaporating before it reaches the ground. the radar beam is shooting out and detecting the raindrops, but the radar beam can't tell you if it's actually hitting the ground. that's what you need observers for. as you can see, it's mostly on the light side. you see green, no yellows or reds indicating heavier rain. we don't have heavier rain in the seven-day. you can see that right below me, and just scrolling across the screen. constantly during the weather cast for multiple areas, and again, you don't have to wait until the end of the weather to see it.
11:17 am
everything is going west to east. on the light side, as you can see. and back to the west, it's a different story. we have some heavier showers around cincinnati, east of st. louis. nothing like what has been happening in oklahoma. but we have a chance of getting at least some thunderstorms by friday. here's the futurecast. we go through the afternoon. the radar still expected to show some of that rain, and even some of it reaching the ground, eventually, the ground could saturate if it rains long enough. by this afternoon's rush, not much rain in the area. but still a lot of clouds. any place that starts breaking out into a little bit of sunshine could get perhaps to 60 degrees. we do clear out a little bit overnight tonight, and there's more rain coming in from the west. you can see that, that's mostly in the middle of the night, and by the morning rush tomorrow, it's mostly just cloudy.
11:18 am
and that's it. more showers coming in during the day, so again, we can't rule out showers tomorrow. but at least we should get some sunshine. in philadelphia today, only 58 with the clouds, and a little light rain or drizzle. tomorrow, we have a chance of showers but also some sunshine and temperatures getting to 70. that's quite a difference in a day. 75 degrees on thursday. in the north and western suburbs. getting up to 56 degrees this afternoon with the clouds. tomorrow, 72 with a little bit of sunshine and the lack of significant east wind to make a big difference around here. lehigh valley, 58. we may not see any rain during the day today because the lower levels of the atmosphere even drier in the lehigh valley than elsewhere, but places like the jersey shore and delaware, a little better chance of the rain reaching the ground because it's a little bit more humid. and then tomorrow, not a whole lot warmer at the jersey shore, but plenty warmer in delaware.
11:19 am
we'll see what lies ahead for the weekend with the rest of the ten-day coming up later. >> all right, see you then, glenn. >> still ahead, natural versus organic. when it comes to food shopping, do you know the difference? a new study that shows how many people admit they're misled by food labels. plus, the insect that takes center stage in the cirque du soleil newest reception, but we guarantee this won't make your skin crawl. i'll talk to two of the performers here for the philadelphia debut.

township. but it's 55 in medford. 56 in lumberton. 57 in hamilton. in new jersey. princeton, 54 grees. and with the clouds in, the temperature really isn't going to be going up a whole lot during the day. you'll see warmer temperatures in the seven-day forecast that's you're seeing below me. that's constantly on the screen. for multiple areas, not just philadelphia anymore, and of course, you don't have to wait until the end of the weather cast to see that seven-day. well, the cloudy skies are there, but they're not low clouds. they're not thick clouds, and they're not producing a whole lot of rain on the radar. it looks fairly impressive, but you saw most places are just report cloudy skies. maybe a couple drizzle drops in some places. sometimes the radar can be a little disceeceptivedeceptive. the relative humidity is around
11:50 am
40%, 45%, right at the ground right now, and that's why a lot of that rain evaporating before it hits. now, the live radar, as we zoom in, shows just very light rain or sprinkles falling. maybe back in delaware county, chester county, a touch heavier. it's not heavy enough to totally saturate the ground levels of the atmosphere. as we look a little wider, we find a little drier air in ohio, west virginia, but more sill knt showers near cincinnati and anothery batch east of st. louis. some of that could be affecting us in the future, but that's not a steady rain, of course. so here's the futurecast. go through the afternoon, most places are still cloudy. could be a couple breaks in those clouds that would allow temperatures to get near 60 degrees. but most places not raining. during the afternoon rush. most places not raining this evening. a couple breaks in the clouds.

so we could actually see a little bit of sunshine tomorrow. now, here's the latest. tonight, rain back to the west. and so we're not really hoping for that, but some of that could come in, especially delaware and south jersey later on tonight, first thing in the morning. but we're expecting at least some sunshine tomorrow, pushing temperatures to 70 or a little bit above. then, no rain is predicted for thursday. finally, a day without rain. by the way, washington has set a record, 13 days in a row with measurable rain. friday, though, there's a cold front coming through. and showers and some thunderstorms, although it's not an all-day rain. that sets us up for a fairly nice weekend. 70 degrees on saturday. a little cooler on sunday with a northwest wind kind of gusty, so it's not really warm on sunday, but it does look like it's going to be dry. then as we head into next week, tuesday, another pretty good

couldn't see the tops of the buildings, so it was definitely nastier last week. there isn't a whole lot of rain around the area. but just enough cloud cover and east wind to keep the temperatures down. 58 degrees in philadelphia. only 56 at the jersey shore. but tomorrow, at least a little sunshine. still a chance of some showers. the inland temperatures jump to near 70 or above. but right at the shore with the wind coming in off the ocean, it's still on the cool side. we don't warm up at the shore until thursday and friday. even then, we're not talking about temperatures into the 70s. friday would be the next chance of some significant rain. but that's just what a cold front, so that would not be an all-day thing or a real cold rain. very, very strange situation today because we see all that stuff on radar and so little of it is reaching the ground. >> this is good sleeping weather. good sleeping weather. >> okay. >> wet, cool, rainy.
