12:24 pm
we are stuck. there is an awful lot of light at the end of the tunnel. stormtracker 6 live double scan shows you we are essentially dry as long as you are talking about just showers. if we go down to the shore there are light sprinkles and showers and pushing their way to the coast but they won't be around much longer but the cloud cover is low and are you getting mystery drizzle and looking at the action cam earlier at fairmount park. if you look closely at this picture you can see the mist coming down. you can't see it when you look at the pink flowers but when you get the dark areas in the branches you see the mist. that is what you are dealing with in the area now. 57 in philadelphia, that number is pretty amazing because that is where we were at sunrise this morning. lack of sunrise is really what it was. the temperature has maintained a cool solid 57 and most of you haven't seen the numbers go very

far. you have winds coming from the east-northeast, bringing moist and cool air off the ocean so gently. numbers across the region, 56's and 57's and we look for highs north to south today, a couple of degree as part really, future tracker 6 shows you for the rest of day it's looking like mainly low lying cloud cover and intermittent drizzle and can't rule out a shower. i think it's just gray and feeling kind of cool and damp out there today. 58 and cloudy skies and damp conditions in the lehigh valley. down the shore looking cool and damp and the rainy drizzle getting off the coast. but an afternoon of drizzle and cloud cover, 56 is all you'll see next to the ocean. in philadelphia a chance of 60, but may stop at 58, 59. we had the rainy start and afternoon drizzle is part of the issue.
12:26 pm
winds out of the east 8 to 16 miles per hour. 60 degrees by 4:00 and 59 by 5:00 and by 7:00 we'll be down to 56 and you may have the windshield wiper intermittent on the way home. that is the way it was this morning and i expect that to be the case this afternoon. cloudy skies and drizzle and 51 is your overnight low. then we get into tomorrow and we have an area of low pressure that is probably too far off the coast to deliver heavy rain but at times with a second low inching towards us it keeps us relatively cloudy and we'll have showers. another cool high of 62. maybe showers up to the north and west and through the day there is that chance of it becoming damp again. your exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, today's high 60 degrees and cloudy and dam many and tomorrow cloudy and
12:27 pm
damp with a shower and 62 and periods of rain on friday and high of 63. but sara set your sights on saturday, it looks completely dry and partly sunny and high of 71 degrees and then sunday not bad, 74 and a mix is of clouds and sun and afternoon shower here there but the day is dry and monday and tuesday look good. >> nice of you to do that for all the mothers. thank you. a teenager who was accepted at all eight ivy league schools. augusta is going to harvard. this comes on the heels of an exciting spring, and was named valedictorian of her class and met president obama during the white house science fair. there is more to come in the next half hour off "action news." more on the torch relay that
