we drop down farther south right around lewis beach light rain that's moving up. if we shift up to along parts of the shore, areas like ocean city seeing lighter rain, a little area rain near maurice river that will track up through ocean city and atlantic city this morning. most of these cells are moving by pretty quickly so at this point no concern for flooding problems. later this afternoonon(uz could see stronger storms and that could lead to bigger issues. severe thunderstorms for today the deeper blue you see that's where we are looking at the possibility of isolated severe thunderstorms. so all of us are looking at scattered thunderstorms developing, when we get severe that's when you have the higher wind, possibly hail and the flooding concern comes into play. so that's something we will be looking at this afternoon across our viewing zone. this is not a guarantee, this is a possibility of some isolated pockets of those strong to severe storms developing. on your hour by hour forecast, clouds should break a bit as we
move into your early afternoon. we are at 12:30 so a little mix of sun and clouds. we start to see that line of rain move in by 3:00 through allentown, wilmington, pockets of heavier rain starts to really develop, could see some thunderstorms moving through and creeping into philadelphia, south jersey as we move along into your midday. 4:30, that continues to drop down over the shore, that's when we could see some thunderstorms on the shore, about 4:00 to 8:00. still spot rain about 8:30 but this moving out and as we move into your sunday things look a lot better. if you have shore plans sunday looking better than your saturday here. you can see on the board 84 in avalon today, thunderstorms, sunday, though, 86 and sunny. most of us looking sunny as we move along near sunday, mid 80s across the map. rehoboth beach at 89 and if you look at that ten-day on ten what we're dealing with is 92 in
