6:16 pm
forecast. let me tell you. well, it's going to be hot and humid. that's easy part of the forecast. temperature today to 90 degrees, one more, and it's official heat wave. remember last weekend, it was in the 60s. that's why it feels so hot. our bodies are not adjusted to it. the memorial day weekend, well, it's starting off on the hot side, and chance of a late day thunderstorm in lehigh valley, but throughout the area, looks like tomorrow is the nicest day. sunday, better in the morning than the amp because moisture's increasing. temperature down a little bit, partly because of that, 85 in philadelphia. 73 at the shore. and monday, the cloudiest day, the day with a very high chance of rain, i'd say close to 80% chance that you're going to get rained on at some point in the day monday.
6:17 pm
not sure whether it's a washout or anything, but it is very likely to be raining at some point. it's not raining right now, and around our area, but moisture is getting closer here. this moisture is is condensed in a tropical depression, could be tropical storm bonnie soon moving to the southeast coast. no doubt it's going to move in that direction. tropical storm warnings. look at all the spaghetti plots predicting the same thing, then they vary on whether they come up to our area or turn out to sea a little bit. that's going to determine how much rain we get monday. some of that tropical moisture is headed up this way, likely to affect shore areas like brigantine. 73 sunday, maybe sun to start the day, clouds increase, and then cloudy day with rain likely
6:18 pm
on monday. i know as we head further south along the shore, the moisture comes in a little sooner on sunday. the weather goes downhill a little faster there, but, again, tomorrow, it is a beautiful, beautiful day at the shore. and cape may, it's cooler. yeah. again, doesn't take much to get a wind off the ocean in cape may. you're surrounded. 70 degrees sunday, limited sunshine because that moisture's going to hit cape may before it hits other portions of the area. here's the futurecast through saturday. as you can see, possibly a shower, storm, up to the north, and here's the moisture as we go into sunday afternoon, and sunday night, some of the computer models showing some relatively heavy rain during a portion of this system whether it's sunday night or into monday. the track of bonnie is critical as to how much rain we get on monday. the temperatures will be down. the wind will be off the ocean, and there's that trend.
6:19 pm
the clear trend. and as we go into next week, the trend is for somewhat cooler weather, but them that's more typical for this time of the year. >> thanks, glen. it is get away time. nbc 10's tim furlong live in skyforce10 checking out the traffic situation across the region, tim? >> reporter: guys, tell you what, look below us, crossing back into delaware, i-95 headed south from claymont to silverside road area, that's where we are. it's smooth sailing at this appointment, but pulling out a little further, heading down 95 to the city of wilmington to the memorial bridge, it was not good earlier heading south over to i-95 to head south to delaware to one of the beach points, but it's a i pretty day to fly and great to fly with our friends with the csn with our sports. >> tim, i wish i was up there with you. looks pretty nice up there. i am here in comcast sportsnet.
