not raining and then another chance of thunderstorms moving through maybe six or 7:00 o'clock tonight, some staying north and west of the city but chance is there later on. for saturday we will have quite a few clouds, slight chance of a shower late in the day, probably not happening, sunday when we will get soaking rains with the cold front number two. today's cold front not as intense with the possibility of pop up thunderstorms later on in the day, it does look like it will clear out by monday. right now as we walk out the door temperatures in the 60's. not too much different then it has been every morning this week. 58 degrees mount pocono, we do have some a lot of humidity, lieutenant of moisture in the air today, so not the best hair day along with the rain. 84 degrees is the high with all that sunshine. today 78. back to the mid 80's tomorrow, with more sunshine, and mixed with clouds but at least it is better weather day of the weekend, so many plans, so many things going on this weekend, so, best we can do is
