control keeping us light and bright. lots of sun and less humid than yesterday and 85 and not quite as hot. at the shore today if you concentrate on the numbers it looks like a good day. 81 or so on the beach. ocean temperature 74. that is all good. but as we said a pronounced chance of rip currents and heavy surf. swim by the lifeguards and listen to what they say. you don't want to go out of the heavy surf and if there is a rip current, don't swim against it. it can catch you by surprise. think cleary and get yourself back to shore. 85 is the high in philadelphia and sunny and generally less humid and a tad on the sticky side and mainly clear tonight. dipping down to 70 and kind of a warm overnight. to the tropics we go hurricane
