thunderstorms turning severe, pollen over new jersey. that's -- possibly over new jersey. that's from 1:00 p.m. through 5:00. damaging winds have been occurring and will continue. i'm trying to look for storm alerts. we're hearing of power outages especially over parts of south jersey. local flooding is possible, especially zones that are prone to flooding when a storm drain gets covered by the leaves that have been falling. it's fall. this is typical that time of year. those are the issues we're looking at today. on top of, it we've been into what has turned into a minor drought. when we don't get a lot of rain, the ground is a little more sturdy. it doesn't absorb as easily. that can lead to some minor flooding, as well. here's the radar and satellite. the wide view. this is the cold front causing the issues. two air masses running into each other. you get a line of rain and spot thunderstorms. not a ton of development, but i think there are isolated spots embedded in the area of rain we're seeing.
we're dropping down and turning on the sweeping radar. this gives more detail closer to the surface of what we're seeing. the areas of yellow over atlantic county, kent, sussex county, even over parts of the suburbs, those are the areas with the heaviest rain currently falling. we'll dive closer into that more coming up in a few minutes. i want to talk about the wind gusts. those have caused issues this morning. through our morning hours, wind gusts, reports have been near 40 miles per hour in spots. closer to 25 to 30 in others. they'll continue strong through 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. as the cold front approaches. that's when the strongest winds occur. up to 45 miles per hour gusts are possible. you see that on the board. they'll die down in the afternoon. still 25 to 35 miles per hour gusts. because it started west to east, it will clear west to east, as well. things will die down in the afternoon near the lehigh valley and burks. by overnight, everyone starts to see weaker winds in the forecast. we'll wrap up with this --

bala kin wood an hour or so ago. it was loud on the building but five minutes at most. this is a quick system moving by. the front will take a while to pass through the region. the storms will regenerate, pumping in from the south. we're not done with it after what you see currently on the map. here's an area of nice and steady rain over parts of south jersey, mill vilville, galloway egg township. you see atlantic city to bass river, these areas have heavier rain. and that continues farther south near delaware. starting to move out of delaware and over the bay. that means next it will be into kay may and cumberland county if it holds its strength which i think it will. areas like cape may, you guys ready to get hit with another round of heavier rain moving through. we'll go through the hour-by-hour model. this is where the rain is currently. you might go, oh, the rain is almost done. not bad.
that's not exactly the case. may take breaks certainly. this morning, 8:00, 9:00 in the morning. i think one the suns comes up there will be branches on the ground because of the high winds we've been experiencing. 11:00 a.m., next pulse of rain moving through, could see a spot thunderstorm here or there. the better chance will be in the afternoon hours as the line sets up. there is especially for jersey through about 2:00 to, say, 5:00, 6:00 p.m. as we go from 6:00 to 8:00, everything should move off shore. that will make for a better wednesday forecast. the storm impact scale. to 5:00 in new jersey, a four out of five. leaning toward the high end of impact especially in the afternoon. we could see a severe thunderstorm develop. one spot could turn severe with an isolated tornado. northern delaware through 3:00, pockets of heavy rain. localized flooding, and damaging winds are possible.
>> all right. we'll be ready for that. let's talk about the morning ride to work. >> we'll check the boulevard with jessica boyington. a common thing to see in the cameras now, the boulevard around wissahickon avenue is where i'm watching here. seeing the southbound delay, roads are wet. that's what we have to be careful of. leaves making it a slippery drive. a crash at harbor ham at blairwood and briarwood drive. route 202 looks okay. ten minutes northbound and south from 30 to the schuylkill and speeds into the 60s. rosemary? a story that goes beyond football. the touching reunion between one local family and eagles' quarterback carson wentz. and a terrible loss when a woman suddenly loses her

we are a first alert for thunderstorms that will bring strong winds and heavy rain to our area throughout the day. >> we're starting to see power outages in south jersey, the majority in gloucester county. we could see minor street flooding especially in areas where leaves may be blocking storm drains. keep an eye out for that. a touching moment before last night's game. carson wentz reunited with the
family of lucas custers who died in june of stomach cancer. >> the 10-year-old was such a huge fan from wilmington. he was buried in his wentz jersey. last night wentz was wearing the green rubber bracelet that lucas gave him. he's actually been wearing it for every game. the bracelet says "dutch destroyer," which is lucas' nickname when he played football. >> a special family. a special family in that -- yeah. it was definitely -- impacted me in a big way, all the way back in the spring. that story yesterday. yeah. it was moving. i was thrilled they could be here. the youngest one, that was his first game. i told him he better keep coming back. >> when lucas was sick, wentz sent him a recorded message. he went to visit during his treatment. another tumor surfaced. doctors said he wouldn't live long. lucas' one wish was to thank carson for the video and to give him that "dutch destroyer" bracelet. you can get the bracelet, as well. here's what they look like.
