back to the accuweather forecast alert, we are expecting rain prompting a flash flood watch. david murphy is here now with the latest. >> stormtracker 6 live double scan right now shows you that the closest rain is on the other side of baltimore. it's very slow as it pushes in our direction. and areas of central and southern delaware will see it and we are waiting for the firs. pretty picture near the wissahickon creek, the old stone bridge and gray skies givinging
way to blue above. and sunshine is glinting off the bush in the foreground. and the clouds thicken up and for now not too bad and dew point up at 69. close to what we consider oppressively humid and some of are you there already. humid if you are trying to get stuff done ahead of the rain. we are mainly dry and by 4:00 there is that chance that this stuff to the south and west is starting to barrel up in our direction and something could pop close toward philadelphia before then. by 7:00 or 7:30 tonight. the model has more beginning to push in but it's later tonight in the overnight hours when we expect the bulk of the heavy rain to arrive and it's centered down south because it's a southern storm and it makes sense that the heaviest banding would be down that way. and some of that heavy rain is coming up to the i-95 copart a t
and the heaviest rain dies down a bit and the problem is that if we get a rise in the creeks and streams and in the roadways it's a long time from the runoff for all of that to go back down. highs today ahead of the problems, low to mid-80s and ln chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm is possible. 83 by 2:00. and 84 is your high and 83 by 4:00 and 77 by 6:00 and i'm po thunderstorm straight up to 10:00 and areas south and west we may get that filling inoon a. phillies hosting the braves for the first of three. cloudy skies for the most part and the possible of rain and decent chance they at least get th f they need. and 76 the first pitch and 73 in the ninth inning and warm and muggy. in terms of rainfall 1 to 2 inches is possible on most
models from philadelphia up to the north with the higher amounts being around the i-95 corridor and the same story goes for the 2 to 4 inches down ther south in south jersey and delaware. all of this with the saturated ground is enough to cause potential for flash flooding. it's likely and one thing to look for later tonight and overnight in particular. but even this afternoon where an isolate the storm hits. roads creeks and streams could be affecis, gusty on author winds that could exacerbate coastal flooding issues there and avoid flooded wear areas. the position will try to race and maybe a shower and tomorrow cool and wet and sunday 75 degrees and we'll get racing in then. and a high of 84 tomorrow. and spotty storms this afternoon and this evening and the heavy rain tonight and overnight and an accuweather alert for the
flood watch the next couple of days and the second half of the weekend we get a nice little gift from mother natu sun and lower humidity and warm on tuesday and not all that humid. hot and humid conditions returning for wednesday and thursday. >> all right sunday looking nice. thank you. >> lets talk food. hummus lovers rejoice the middle eastern dip is having the moment in philadelphia. there are spots serving up the spread in true israeli style. alicia vitarelli has the special fyi. i just want to know if there is samples. >> they do deliver. isn't this gorgeous. for centuries mum mus h dip. in israel it's more like an entire meal. and there are two brand new spots that open the here in center city that will take your taste buds of a tour of middle east.
