12:24 pm
lancaster, it looks like one break away cell is popping up west of reading and it may only be another 20 minutes or so before you see that precipitation, this heavier stuff to the west is still pretty far west of norristown and philadelphia, we probably have to wait 90 minutes or a couple of hours before it gets close to the city, if you have errands to run, around philadelphia and quakertown and allentown, can you run out quick and get them done but keep the storm tracker 6 app on your cell phone and watch the progress of these storms. it's warm and humid outside, if you are in the air conditioning, and look at this action cam picture, it almost looks like a nice spring day, but you get out there and despite the cool water and babbling brook it's uncomfortable today. the dew point is up to 74, and it was humid yesterday and warming up at this hour, today the temperatures may not go as
12:25 pm
high but indicating sticky air, it will feel similar to yesterday. winds 14 miles per hour out of the south-southwest right up from where that humid is coming from. 88 in philadelphia and 86 in allentown and trenton, down the shore better in cape may, 85 at the airport in atlantic city, again the humid levels are high and noticeable. in terms of the storms to the west, between now and 2:00 there is a possibility we see some stuff forming close toward philadelphia and the main line is however pretty far out and we go up to 4:00, 5:00 and see that main stuff cranking right threw the i-95 corridor, these storms are obviously going to produce drenching downpours and other problems we'll talk about in a moment. the latest run has this stuff in and around philadelphia, and the phillies are back home tonight, and i would not cancel my plans but by 10:00 to 11:00 it looks
12:26 pm
like this stuff is getting off the coast but adam and cecily will have something to show you on radar. lightning definitely a possibility and almost a certainty, we are seeing thunderstorms around lancaster, downpours a high chance of that in the hot and humid air mass, high winds, a moderate chance of that, not all of them will do that but some could. we are going low on the hail and tornado chance, these three lit up the way they are is enough to convince you to take cover when the storms move into your area, 88 is the high in allentown and afternoon thunderstorms and down the shore, we are also stopping in the 80s there is a chance of rip concerns in the water but as long as you swim near the lifeguards you'll be okay. gusty thunderstorms on the way this afternoon, drenchers too and getting up to 90 for a high and humid, tomorrow 90 for a high and with the front moving
12:27 pm
away we'll see a drop in humidity, and that will be fairly dramatic and maybe sticky tomorrow morning and afternoon, but nothing like what we have got now, and the weekend is looking dry and on the hot side with moderate levels of humidity and monday we get another thunderstorm chance and things get soupy again. >> if you ever wanted to own a piece of the rocky movies, now is your chance, sylvester stallone is parting with props and costumes, including rocky's robe and gloves and boxing trunks, they go up for auction in october and some proceeds will be donated to military families and if are you a rambo fan he is selling rambo's army jacket. >> you would look good in that rick. >> more coming up at noon on "action news." a man is recould having from emergency surgery after being pinned under a train.
