could be some fog developing. remember how it got really thick at the airport yesterday. well, today the airport looks fine and most of your fog is probably going to be in valleys and low lying areas next to creek beds that sort of thing so no problems right now at philadelphia international airport. temperature is 63 degrees. your dewpoint is up there at 60. might feel a tad humid if you really get to working out this morning and because those numbers are close together, that's an indication that the air is somewhat saturated and yeah maybe encouraging fog here and there. winds are light, 5 miles per hour out of the south-southwest in the city but outside of fog no real cloud cover out there. the next bank of clouds is way up north under the jet stream with that big ridge of high pressure building into the east. as a result we'll see lots of sun overall today and very warm conditions building in. 62 degrees by 8 o'clock. 69, still pretty comfortable and a little bit on the cool side by 10 o'clock. but by noon, starting to push toward 80 already and by 3 o'clock, we're going for a record high of 86 degrees. the existing record in philadelphia is 85.

down to the tropics that future i showed you to the east of the bahamas yesterday has now bumped up to a 40 percent chance of formation of a tropical system. we'll keep watching that and there's a 70 percent chance of that over the next five days, a 40 percent chance over the next couple days. 86 degrees is today's high lots of sunshine out there. it does look like record warmth. then tomorrow, more record warmth on the way with a high of 85 degrees. the old record tomorrow 80. looks like we'll pretty easily beat that. on thursday clouds and sun, might feel a bit humid and a high of 78 degrees. 80 is the record there so once again we'll be in record territory. now on thursday we could see a spotty shower. on friday we start to get to the full force of the other side of that ridge, so it looks like we're down to 71 degrees, breezy cooler with a shower there and then for the weekend back down into much cooler territory, highs in the low 60's saturday sonarman. you can get the latest weather information at 6abc.com/weather. >> over the ridge, over the

pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising.
