south and west of speedwell and malaga and buena. you are about to get hit are heavy rain, as this drifts towards the shore line. but no lightning or severe weather with it. temperatures in the 70s across much of the area with the cloud cover that really dominated today. it's not very comfortable out there, we are still awaiting the northerly wind to pull in the humidity late tonight and throughout the day tomorrow. it's moving in and clouds breaking up north of the lehigh valley and the poconos will set up for a more comfortable night as the clouds clear and a beautiful night on tap area wide. and then things go downhill as we follow hurricane hermine, there is the eye of the hurricane close to landfall as we get the feeder bands and heavy rain and tornado watches in northern florida. as we track this for you, 11:00 tonight is when it should make landfall, there is the center
