4:54 am
weather initially. we turn the focus to the tropics, especially the eastern pacific where we do have one little disturbance just south of mexico, that has a shot to actually develop into something here. meanwhile, though, we are still tracking what now is tropical storm blanca, making very, very close bee line here at this point toward the southern baja california. this is expected to actually just move on inland here and eventually it is going to have chance to weaken somewhat into depression status. regardless, lots of moisture drawing upon and certainly the potential for some very drenching rain across that area. meanwhile, as far as we're concerned, storm scan3, at this point is still empty local level but just even one zoom out here does show that you there is some steadier rain moving along portions of the i80 corridor, far off to the north appears right now so that's going to be clipping portions of the poconos as well as even maybe northampton county. we have to keep an eye on that for any of you traveling maybe the extreme northern branch of the northeast extension but
4:55 am
otherwise, we keep it dry everywhere else. i do want to zoom out even one more time here, show you the scope of this frontal boundary, it is pretty broad one, extends all the way from across the canadian border all the way back into, say northern texas here, so, the deep south is even getting impacted by this here today t does appear as though the potential store strong thunderstorms not only is in our local area, but even way back to the northeastern most edge of arkansas, as far as the most severe potential here with any thunderstorms that erupt today. talking ben p.m. time frame. approaching evening as the worse of these storms start to fire up. so you have window of opportunity for outdoor plans definitely the case. but does appear as though shower or thunderstorm lidge ers into tomorrow. and despite it being a cold front passage we actually heat up from here, west flow kicks right back in, heat and humidity build right back in, and we are going have real easy time at least flirting with 90 for couple of days coming up. diana, back to you. >> thanks, now a check of some of the stories on our station
