this is according to a study from oxford economics. that works out to 430 million vacation days per year that go unused. that devotion to the workplace doesn't do much good. hr professionals say time off, that only makes you happier and healthier but more productive when you get back. matt and nydia hope you come back a little sunnier, too. >> i'm a firm believer of vacation time. >> david and i took that practice to reality last week. >> are you reenergized. >> i am so happy. >> storm tracker 6 live double scan and what do where he got? nothing going on out there precipitation-wise. we have a mix of clouds and sun over center city on sky 6, nice hd picture there. but it is a little bit on the muggy side. you'll feel that as you step outside. particularly a little later as the sun gets a little higher offer the hordes son. 73 right now in philadelphia, 73 in wilmington. we have slipped to 69 in allentown. 70 in trenton and 72 in sea isle city. looks like a 72 in dover, delaware as well. satellite shows you how
there's probably a good reason to keep your sunglasses handy if you're headed up and down i-95 in a little while or up the pennsylvania turnpike because it's probably going to be fairly bright with some clouds mixing. you see showers out to the west kind of falling apart. slight chance of a stray thunderstorm later today or this evening but most of you probably don't have to worry about that. 90 is your high up in the lehigh valley even there it's going to be hot and a bit on the humid side as we go through the afternoon. nice day at the shore assuming we don't get any of those stray storms. 79 degrees by noon and by 3 o'clock, 84 degrees, sun mixing with clouds, a sea breeze likely. u.v. index is high of course and water temperature probably in the upper 60's in a lot of spots up and down the coast. and 92 is your high in philadelphia today. sun mixing with clouds. hot and humid. a slight chance of a stray thunderstorm. and it gets warm in a hurry today. by 8 o'clock, 76 but by 11 o'clock we're already in the mid 80's and then 90 by 2 o'clock, 90 by 5 o'clock with in 92-degree high probably around 4 o'clock this afternoon. humid out there, too.
then tomorrow, we've got some cloud cover building as we head into the afternoon and later on there is the chance of some shower activity, even though the model isn't really stressing this we are looking at the potential for some drenching downpour producing thunderstorms at times in at least a couple of spots tomorrow afternoon and evening and any storms that form tomorrow could be gusty. the humidity tomorrow is going to be really oppressive, too, okay. then we get into thursday beyond all of this and things are still somewhat unsettled with somewhat humid conditions and drenching thunderstorms possible. now, all eyes are on the tropics. tropical depression number one did form down by florida late last night. it's got 35 miles per hour winds right now. all it's got to do is get to 39 to become tropical storm arthur and we think that is going to happen later today. and then the storm looks like it's going to hook to the north and potentially become a category one hurricane as it shoots past us on the fourth of july. now, the most likely scenario is that it follows this red line which is far enough off the coast where the main thing
we would get out of this is rip currents and maybe a little bit of rain in the morning. we are hoping for some afternoon drying. but it all depends on the track obviously if the storm came closer to this side of that cone it would be a different story. for now hoping for some improvement on the fourth and we're going to continue to watch that for you. seven day from accuweather 92, hot and humid today, 95 tomorrow with oppressive humidity and at times a drenching thunderstorm is possible. take cover from storms on wednesday. thursday warm and muggy, 88. another drenching storm is possible at times and then we're going to say it stays unsettled for friday the fourth of july a better high of 82 degrees. probably lowering humidity. and if we do get some showers or a thunderstorm, it looks most likely that that's in the morning and we're hoping for afternoon drying but of course that's a situation we'll have to keep watching. either way it looks like nice weekend saturday and sunday, lots of sun. >> let's hope those fireworks will be man-made. >> yeah, i hope so. >> thank you, david. >> thanks david. >> 6:11 now. up next more stories you including a look at the devastation left behind by a
deadly storm that swept through the midwest. >> pillow talk how sleepy passengers are giving one airline a brand new perspective. karen. >> we're looking live at 422. some building volume eastbound maybe but no big problems right here. we've got issues elsewhere, though, route 23 is closed, we've got construction running late, all that coming right up. >> surviving without your smartphone is put to the test. find out how long most americans would last next in tech bites. ready? >> seconds, seconds. >> really. >> ♪

and serious leadership in jerusalem and they will make the decisions they have to make in order to send a very strong message to hamas that this action is unacceptable and to take the action they deem necessary in order to protected and defend our population. your government would do the same thing, any government would do the same thing. >> the fbi is also investigating 'cause one of the teens who was killed was an israeli-american. he moved to israel from brooklyn when he was 16. i'm live in the satellite center erin o'hearn channel6 "action news. >> thank you erin. from our new jersey news room new jersey governor chris christie signed a budget for the state's new fiscal year which begins today. the spending plan totals $32.5 billion. before putting his name on the budget christie vetoed two tax hikes and cut back on the state's contribution to the public employee pension fund. team u.s.a. plays belgium in the world cup this morning and our -- this afternoon i should say and our big offensive weapon jozy at store will be available for the first time since he injured

as we look outside we have sun mixing with clouds. you can see a little band of cloud cover has taken up a pretty good firm position over the ben franklin bridge right now. and some rays of sunshine getting through. 73 degrees right now in philadelphia and it does feel muggy with that dewpoint at 65. some neighborhoods actually have a higher dewpoint and that's high enough to indicate some fairly muggy air. winds out of the south-southwest at 6 miles per hour so not much wind out there. satellite shows that you mix of clouds and some sun that will be breaking through over the next couple of hours. out to the west some showers falling apart. there's a slight chance of a stray thunderstorm this afternoon, this evening but most of you aren't going the see that. temperatures today 76 degrees by 8:00 a.m. maybe you get out there early to do your exercise, walk the dog or maybe get your errands done. by 11:00 we're up in the mid 80's and by 2 o'clock getting into the 90's. your high today 92 probably around 4 o'clock this afternoon. high temperatures across-the-board are looking petite tea.
in the lehigh valley a slot at 90. 91 in wedding, 90 in trenton, 92 in wilmington. a little better down the shore, low to mid 80's next to that moderating influence of the ocean. tomorrow we've got some sun early, clouds building as day goes on. in the afternoon we'll be on the lookout for showers. even though you don't see a lot of it on the model i'm going to warn you that tomorrow afternoon we could see some isolated but gusty drenching thunderstorms and if you hear thunder tomorrow take cover indoors on the lower floors just in case. thursday also a little bit unsettled. tropical depression number one, the first of the season has been named overnight. it's still a tropical depression right now off the coast of miami and pushing towards the bahamas. looks like this will do a u-turn before it hooks towards the north over the next 24 hours. maximum sustained winds are 35 right now but if it hits 39 it becomes tropical storm arthur and we expect that to happen later today. it may not be do. the latest computer projections have this creeping up the coast and eventually turning into a category one hurricane before it really starts to shoot past us in a hurry during the day on friday
but the most likely scenario is this track along this red line which is well off our coast and in this case we might get a little bit of rain pushing up close to philadelphia in the morning but after about one or 2 o'clock it just shoots back. i think the biggest issue potentially for us will be rip currents down the shore and that would be friday, maybe saturday as well depending on the move of this storm. all of the spaghetti plot models have this offer the the coast and we thing it's going to be minimal impact mainly in the morning in terms of rain. 92 is today's high, hot and humid, a stray storm around. tomorrow humid oppressively so with a high of 95 so the humidity is real high tomorrow, the temperature is high, heat index is probably over a hundred and if we get any thunderstorms on a wednesday they could be gusty drenchers. then warm and muggy on thursday, back to 88 but a couple more drenching thunderstorms possible. friday we're going to say it stays unsettled for now. a high of 82 degrees. probably lowering humidity in the afternoon. best chance of rain would be in the morning. for now anyway it's looking
pretty good for fireworks at night and we might dry out in the afternoon in time for some of your barbecues. i think there will be a few of those around, at least planned. saturday and sunday do whatever you want. lots of sunshine really nice both days. >> anything? >> sure.
