although most of the heavy stuff as you can see has already moved offshore, it's just unsettled enough that we can't rule out a shower. there's a stray shower right now in chester county. so keep that in mind. there may be a few more showers before the morning is through. because a cold front hasn't come through yet. it's in the process, but not yet. all that was in advance of the cold front. all the mess and the loud thunder and the lightning and what a show it was in the overnight hours. so by noon today we still have showers up in upstate new york as the rest of that cold front comes through. by about 4:00, 5:00 there should be light showers. i don't think you'll see the drama that we had in the overnight hours but that's the deal as we look ahead to tuesday and wednesday. both days look pretty good. so the temperature trend over the past five days. last wednesday we were in the 90s. we got comfortable for a while. by yesterday we were up to 91 degrees and that heat and
humidity sparked those thunderstorms. we're at 70 degrees right now in the city, upper 60s north and west of the city and dew points are up there too in the 60s. so recapping it all, or putting it all together in the seven-day forecast. 84 today, 80 tomorrow, very comfortable, low humidity and wednesday's high 83 degrees. starts to get a lil bit warmer but not extremely so as we get closer to the weekend. thursday and friday, mid 80s. by saturday and sunday we see increasing clouds and maybe a thunderstorm on sunday but we'll see what happens between now and then. it looks like some nice days. >> it looks like a beautiful forecast. >> downed polls, route 10 closed. center city walnut street between 12th and 13th, that police activity and closure has cleared it's out of your way this morning.
