9:40 am
look at live doppler radar, we see where the shower activity is at the moment. we see very isolated shower activity pushing west to east into philadelphia. that will continue in the next couple hours pushing into delaware and central delaware and north delaware. in south jersey and along the shoreline, things are dry right now and there is moisture to the west. that will be moving our way as we push through our sunday. that's why we say hang on to the umbrellas. it is scattered in nature, but there is more moisture associated with this system. late yesterday, and still giving us the cloud cover. so city skyline looking pretty nice, but the sky is not blue which is what we like to see. overcast right now, 56 degrees in philadelphia. we will be warming just a bit.
9:41 am

9:46 am
we have gray skies and showers moving through philadelphia right now. the city getting some drizzle as we look at the city sky line nap will be our weather picture for most of the day. we think maybe a peek of sunshine later this afternoon. the boardwalk is wet, but we see some people out. maybe have the umbrella handy. the isolated pop up showers is the call for our weather today. that will be the forecast as we move through. here is the reason why. this low pressure system is just a large system, brought us a lot of rain last night. yesterday afternoon and those gray skies, and a system that is
9:47 am
really broken up. and that is why we say isolated showers. we do have this shower moving west to east in to the city and we have rain moving into parts of delaware right now. this will be what we can expect as we move through a good portion of the day. sometimes we have to say showers moving out quickly and a dry note, but for today, look out west. more rain to contend with that will come through in spotty and isolated showers. it could pick up in intensity later in the afternoon. there is a good potential for peeks of sun breaking through the cloud cover. future cast puts it into potion. takes it in and shows that we will contend with the spotty showers throughout the day. we get closer to the evening hours and this system will try to break apart and move out, but it is slow to go. through the overnight, it is
9:48 am
going to retreat. a light variety, and by wake up tomorrow morning we should be left with clouds and drying out. warmer up north, but with the shower activity, 56 in philadelphia, 53 in the pennsylvania suburbs, and spotty, isolated showers. pick your neighborhood, and then check your temperature. 54 right now in malbourn. temperatures will bimp into the 60s, a high temperature of 69 in philadelphia. wind direction still coming from the north, we will be shifting to the northwest, but not doing too badly. eight in millville, and the wind will not be many of a contender today, just spotty showers as we
