philadelphia area weather watch ers picking up quarter inch of rain in riverside. timmeney mitchell, tuckerton getting heavy rain. and fran, in nottingham, pennsylvania says overcast and just going to be starting to pick up few rain showers so we're going to be watching for this rain, and you can see, the northern and western extent of it. so it does continue to push in little bit. but i think the morning hours, especially through the poconos, reading allentown that's when you will find the rain, is the rest of the day goes on, you will probably see these rain showers pulling out. the rest of us, however, will probably be stuck with them for good portion of the day and the closer you are to the coast, and into new jersey, probably the longer. forty-seven in philadelphia. wilmington, 44, in trenton, it is a cold, wet winnie morning out there with winds continuing to gust about 25 miles an hour over the area. but, we will be finding them gusting 30 plus, and at the shore, maybe even 40 miles an
6:50 am
hour as we go through the day and this evening. low pressure system, one of them not just one of them, we have two of them, wouldn't you know ganging up on us today. but they do pull away by tomorrow left with some sunshine high pressure builds in and it starts its fight with the low pressure systems and the result the winds that comes down from the northwest. so very windy day continuing tomorrow. as we take a look at our future weather there is one says 3:00 this afternoon. we've got some rain through new jersey, along the shore areas, not through the poconos, and then as we hit about 8:00 tonight, just brushing the coast, according to this computer model but wants to put rain shower back up in the poconos. so just know, that we have a chance of these rain showers as we go through this evening on and off in some spots and we've already seen an inch to inch and a half through some of the shore areas. that's why there is that flood advisory until 9:15 this morning, and then a coastal flood advisory from 1:00 in the 7:00 along the shore lines
