i want to show you what's going on. why are we still looking at rain. we have a storm system sitting well to the west of us actually. that's a low pressure center. all that means is the storm system itself, the center of the system, but it is a huge system bringing up showers. it is stalled, sitting west of us. as a result is pumping more and more moisture over us, bringing us stormy weather. on top of that, we have a cold front that's also hanging over us, helps to fire off storms. if they don't move and we continue to see that activity, that's what's been going on for us. currently, a little break from showers. we've got clouds overhead, and cloudiness, cool breezy weather, kind of a dreary forecast, it does continue into saturday. not looking like it will be an absolute washout for today like we have seen in the past couple days. in delaware seeing some of the
heaviest rain. this is doppler estimated rainfall. if you remember the last month, we have been talking about how little rain we have seen. we picked up a lot of it in the last few days, ending the september on a wet note. look at delaware, saw some of the heaviest rain. these are estimated rainfall totals, not official values, but close to a foot of rain. 8 inches near milford. moving through suffolk county. new castle county looking at close to six inches near middletown, philadelphia to 3.5 inches of rain. these are estimated amounts, maybe you saw more at your house than this and that's not a surprise because there were pockets of heavier showers the last few days. we look at the shore, two to five inches near cape may for
estimate values. chances weaken. today, good chance for on/off rain. you see chances start to drop off through reading, atlantic city. chances don't disappear, slight chance in atlantic city early in the work week. chances drop off monday, tuesday, wednesday. that's before the next chance of rain moves back in from tropical moisture. here's the neighborhood forecast. 69 degrees, high temperature, center city. mid to upper 60s expected in philadelphia with isolated showers, scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. in suburbs, temperature of 66 in lance dale, cookstown, 63. through new jersey and the shore and delaware, tracking temperatures, mostly hanging in the 60s to around 70 today.

when i was one year old, i was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say...
"i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" "that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.
