4:32 am
49 in trenton. but the further south you go, it is milder because it is cloudier. fifty-three in wilmington, 50 in wildwood, 51 degrees in millville, new jersey, so here is your planner, plan on a lot of cloud cover today. and a chan of spotty shower any time but the further north you go, as we mentioned, less chance you have of seeing any rain. we will go for this high of 70 degrees. we don't get there, we will get close, sunset time 8:06. so that should get you over the hump. we will get to the weekend forecast with the well-crafted seven day, it is ready, bob kelly. >> biggest hum some getting the keurig to work back behind the studio there this morning. good morning, everybody, 4:32, crews still working out here along the schuylkill expressway. this is a live look, the westbound side, right near 476 out there in conshohocken. and they only got the one lane open, but it is okay, light volume so far this morning. just watch the speeds as you crust on by. getting ready for an opening, are you up yet? come on, burlington bristol going up 5:05, that's the time

>> stationary front since monday bringing wave after wave of rain the further south you go since this is stalled to the south the greater the chance every seeing some rain. there is a cold front way out in the midwest. that will get on friday probably. it does look, though, like we might get milder temperatures today. you see where the action is with this front. that's well to the south down in kent county, delaware. we do see couple of stray showers, showing up on radar, anyway, not sure that any of this precipitation is making it to the ground around chester, in delaware county, but as we said the action is now in cape may county, at the jersey shore, and as we zoom in, little bit closer, we see around wildwood, middle township, lower township, cape may, you're seeing some of that steady to heavy rain move in because of the southern frontal system. so, that's the deal. that area probably dries up. we just get mostly cloudy skies, we could even see
4:45 am
little bit of sunshine this morning, but then you see this afternoon clouds rolling in again. chance of some more southern thunderstorms that could inch up at least with some rain into our area. so again, you can't rule out a shower. but many of us will escape with a dry day. just quite a few clouds out there. now, thursday, it looks like, another wave comes along, and this one will be in the morning, looks like, again, mostly a dry day on thursday, maybe even some sunshine. friday, this is when the cold front comes through, and this is when we could get those thunderstorms, when will they hit? probably in the afternoon, around 3:00, 4:00. depending on where you live. so that's the future cast, every day is a little bit different than the day before. makes life interesting, right? 55 degrees, in philadelphia, 39 in mount pocono, 50 in dover, 50 in wildwood. so the further south you go the warmer it is wind very calm, average high of 72. where did we go yesterday? well below average with a high
