through the midwest. doesn't look like much. indiana and into ohio. but this one storm here, this just produced a pretty significant tornado in kokomo, indiana. i've seen video of it, and some of the damage you may be hearing more about it in the hours to come. we have the heat and humidity coming back. 85 degrees so far today. 89 tomorrow. feeling like about 90, 91. and then friday, 94. feeling like a hundred. over the weekend, close to 90. but the humidity will be down a little bit. so it won't be feeling like a hundred degrees then. this is what it's going to feel like tomorrow. somerton's 89 degree, feeling like 90. upper dublin township, 87, feeling like 88. you can see the humidity's up a little, but not a tremendous amount. at the shore, it's a different story. longport 79, feeling like 86. that's an indication the humidity is pretty high.
