hail and heavy rain as well and can't even rule out an isolated tornado although that's the lowest risk. highest risk is damaging winds through the passage of that front. through tonight, scattered showers and through 11:00, a heavier shower in parts of carbon and monroe counties. generally scattered maybe loc locally heavy but it's later in the day we see things ramp up. here's 6:00, that line of storms right along the i 95 corridor, moving through with strong widse an heavy rain and could be an instance at 2:00, things are looking pretty good but two hours later things can change quickly. things are pushing offshore and this will be a quick mover in a quite a bit of time. a big rain mover and i'm thi thinking any flooding is probably going to be localized, something you want to keep an eye out for as you head to your sunday. stormy into the weekend,
temperatures on the warm side, 82 in philadelphia. on the humid side, it's not going to be until later in the overnight hours we get that front to finally move through and with that we improve conditions big time moving to monday. 84 degrees the high, sunshine and less humid and chance of showers tuesday and through the week again definitely make sure you're tuned to the weather as conditions will be changing very quickly as we head to your sunday afternoon and evening. from comcastsports net, the life of the one known simply as "the greatest" continues to be celebrated across sports. plus, the pete mccann non's everyday twist on the other side.
