start off with the live look outside. 82 degrees in philadelphia right now. winds about 7 miles per hour. winds picking up just a tad in the afternoon. but otherwise, looking like we will not have an issue there. the issue is with that temperature. 82 sounds okay. but with feels-like conditions already in the low 90s, we're looking very hot this afternoon. that's why we're under that first alert. because take a look. in red you see the feel-like temperature. what it feels like to our skin as you step out the door. in white is the actual temperature. 98 center city. feeling like 110. 96 for chestnut hills feeling close as well. 96 in landsdale. westchester at 94. in parts of the pennsylvania suburbs, we may see an isolated shower or thunderstorm popping up. can't rule that out. same for the lehigh valley. 94 degrees. feeling like 105. and easton at 95 degrees. feeling like 106. these conditions, again, could include in the afternoon a

6:44 am
