4:34 pm
the part that's up towards the lehigh valley that's really hanging together and even that area appears to be slinking a little bit so the computer model suggesting that this is all going to be weakening does look like it is about to happen but that's not helping anybody in allentown getting poured on. easton getting it as well and holland about to see the heavier rain and richland about to see the heavier rain and douglas as well so it's a very limited area and it knocked the temperature down 75 degrees and lehigh valley in the mid-80s and ahead that have line of showers. 82 degrees in northern and western suburbs, so as we go through the evening hours we're going to be seeing temperatures drop a little bit with more showers on the way. we'll start timing those for tomorrow in just a few minutes. >> okay, glenn. today, hundreds of area kids along with some of philadelphia's finest spent the day at soothe. >> 250 kids and teens involved with the police athletic league

4:48 pm
these showers coming up from dover. now we'll go into an extended future cast and you can see some of those showers coming up from delaware, maybe not as much in allentown is what we saw today but the rest of the area has a much greater chance, as you can see. there's tomorrow evening and that could be a line of actual thunderstorms as opposed to the lighter showers that are around right now coming through the area. you can see that coming through during the evening, so that's our best chance of really getting any kind of heavy rain or thunderstorms this week. now the temperature ahead of those showers is pretty high. you saw what happened in the lehigh valley and drops down into the 70s. winchester park now, 86 at penn's port and 87 west mt. airy and 85 at philly international, and we're not talking about any extreme heat for several days now, including the fourth of
