that. they are light. they are moving slowly, ever so slowly, to the south. and also, very much an eastward progression on these. there is a chance that we could be finding couple of light showers as we move through the afternoon hours. through the philadelphia area, as well. but, most of the day is going to be dry. but maybe not totally dry. our temperatures comfortable, 59 degrees, up in the poconos, right now, you have 12-mile per hour winds. that won't make it feel even little cooler. 69 degrees out at the airport in philadelphia, 6-mile per hour winds, and 71, in atlantic city, just little bit inland. and you have just little bit after breeze going on there. otherwise, the temperatures today, i think, are some nine, 10 degrees warmer than they were yesterday morning at this point. we have 63 degrees, in trenton, yesterday it was 53 degrees. sixty-five in wilmington, 69 degrees out at the airport in philadelphia. sixty-three up in allentown. so, nice start to the day. the dew points, depending on where you are, if you are north of the city, they're low. if you are south of the city, you're dealing with some
fairly humid conditions, atlantic city, has almost 70 degrees for your dew points. so that's pretty high. you'll feel that sick i necessary in the air. i think generally, though, today, once we get rid of some of the showers, and the front gets to progress a little bit more through, we will start to see the winds coming from a northwesterly direction, than is a much more refreshing direction front is slow to move through. may be finding showers late monday according to this computer model i'm about to show you and possibly early tuesday. otherwise, notice those showers, computer pretty good at picking that up. it totally missed these, so it is not always right in every location, as we say every weekends. which means, it is probably likely couple every showers are going to be out there. not necessarily in these exact spots, few more around 2:00. few more around 4:00. but they're widely scattered as you can see, then we also get some sunshine out there. the next thing we will be
watching for is the possibility of some showers monday afternoon, through delaware, is that possible in the extreme southern sections every new jersey it is possible, forecast is saying for us. and then after, that looks like wednesday will be a very nice day. you may be headed to the beaches today. why not? with ocean temperatures in the middle 70s, and air temperatures that will be right about 80 degrees or so. how about 82? in the poconos, 57 degrees. every location, just slight chance of picking up a shower as we go through the afternoon. that does include philadelphia at 85 comfortable degrees today. 65 degrees tonight. then the next couple of days, we don't see any 90's on this, we may be finding 09 again, maybe next week, but for this week low to mid 80s at most, not bad week. couple of shower chances tuesday, thursday, and friday. liz? >> not a bad week, i'll take that, thank you, carol. time right now 8:21. time to check the roads, let's head out to ann evans at the cbs-3 traffic centerment good morning, ann. >> good morning, liz, focused

change what you're doing today, just because you might see a shower, just keep on with your outdoor plans, because these showers will be leaving soon, where ever you are. we haven't seen any down through rehoboth beach. look at the people on the board walk in rehoboth beach: also on the beach, so nice looking start to the day in that location. we have seen with storm scan3, though, notice these showers, but they're starting to thin out, die out, but also starting to press into the philadelphia area. so that's why cannot totally rule out a shower here. the ones that brought few little sprinkles to atlantic city now off the coast. and we have some clouds, around, but we will be in and out of the clouds, and spot or two of a shower today. that will be the extent of it probably. 69 degrees out at the airport, 63 trenton, 56 degrees in wilmington, comfortable temperatures still in the 50's, though, 59 degrees, almost 60, in the poconos, and already, 73 degrees, down in wildwood. so the temperatures are showing as wide a variety of conditions as the weather is this morning. because we've got either showers, or sun, or a quick
change over from one to the other, and that's going to be the trends with this front moving very slowly through the area. temperatures will be mild today, about eight a degrees, then tomorrow we'll be at eight a degrees, as well. feel the humidity low tomorrow. looks like nice day coming up. low pressure rides along this front. even as early as monday late afternoon, areas to the shower might see shower, at least on one of the computer models. tuesday afternoon should be okay. few showers, moving on past, this is a look at 11:00. >> this computer model says we've got few clouds, we've got some breaks of some sunshine, by 2:00 this afternoon, few other areas, pick up some light showers, other areas are seeing clouds, and some seeing sun. by the time we get to 5:00 o'clock, a few little spots of showers, sunshine, cloud or two, you get the idea, the weather you're having, maybe they're not having, couple of towns over. and then by the time we get to
tomorrow, i want to show you this. this is 3:00 in the afternoon. computer model says kent county, delaware, maybe even right along cape may county irks picking up couple of showers. so we'll continue to monitor that to see whether that happens. and otherwise, by the time we get to the rest of tuesday, and wednesday, things are looking pretty nice. ocean is warming up, into the 70s. so this is a day you'll probably have your feet in the ocean, at least as far up as your feet probably. eight an in philadelphia, shore, 82, poconos, 75 degrees. in every location, that chance after spotty shower here or there. eight a, today, tonight, 65, and then the next couple of days, we have temperatures that will be in the low to mid 80s at most, humidity will start to pick up, though, on tuesday, and a chance of a shower on tuesday, especially early, the way it looks now, thursday and friday, liz? >> well, thank you, carol. the time right now is 8:51. time to check the roads and
