some hail they were approaching 50 even 60,000 feet so still a threat of some small hail but that cell weakening a bit however, the rainfall it's still pretty torrential right now across parts of our area. so we have the flash flood watch the entire area through 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning ponding downpours we have that boundary stuck and that boundary is going to act as a focal point or a lifting mechanism so keep the rain gear umbrellas handy galoshes by 10:00 o'clock tonight when you're watching the fox 29 news at 10:00 likely still looking at heavy rainfall right around the area as well as some downpours. by tomorrow morning not as much coverage but we still have the threat for some rainfall again for tomorrow. so additional rainfall as we roll one of our computer models you can see through tonight, we can see 2.5-inches maybe in philadelphia. parts of new castle county could see 4-inches of rainfall before all is said and done. that's just one of the models that we're looking at so really locally heavy rainfall. 68 degrees right now humidity at
5:36 pm
81%. so once again the major headlines we're talking about the flash flood watch heavy rainfall over 2-inches of rainfall in spots and those temperatures are rain cooled right now in philadelphia but look at the divide. 54 degrees right now in the pocono mountains. we're looking at 80 degrees currently in dover delaware. so that boundary is draped across the area and that is settering the stage for heavy rainfall so the weather authority seven day forecast upper 60s. that's it for high temperatures tomorrow. it look like we'll probably get a dry break wednesday. then more chances for some scattered showers as we move into thursday, friday and also part of the um upcoming weekend. temperatures will warm back into the low 80s. so it look like kind of unsettled to begin the month of june. very heavy rainfall we'll take another look at ultimate doppler coming up. >> very unsettled. all right. thanks, scott. >> thank you. three good samaritans risking their lives in texas to save a mother and her child. it happened at a construction site. what police say the mom did that put her kid in danger.
