this is the most glummy time of the whole day right now. we have another glummy picture, there is the palmyra cove nature park in new jersey overlooking the delaware and philadelphia and you can see gray skies out there not the greatest looking start to the day but it won't be this bad this long. notice is what happening it is rotating out the extent of the heavier shower are right a wrong the shore. they are leaving. we have dry slots working in. and then generally we will be clearing out. we will be seeing some sunshine some clouds, maybe a return to a shower or a thunderstorm later on this afternoon. this is the darkest part of the day right now this does not look good. but, it is all uphill from here. or downhill however you want it. heavy rain is over and now at 7:15, we still have that any flood advisory that was going on through new jersey has expired. we're new left with the one through central and southern delaware and this is until 9:15 this morning. just in case you picked up
more rain, you have already seen quite a bit of rain out of this system. it is mile. if you have walked outside or see steam on the windows no wonder it is 75 at the airport. seventy-two in trenton. seventy-three in wilmington. the air mass is just saturated after out after the rain we saw yesterday. generally about an inch. in some cases where we see yellow and orr ranges here's the legend at the top we are seeing, you have seen 2 inches of rain. that is why any additional rain that we're seeing out of these showers pushing through right now can create a little bit more of a flooding situation. so urban areas your creeks, your streams you may be finding them higher but generally the flood watch for the whole area has already been canceled. so our temperatures will be very close to 90 degrees today. maybe they will stop at 88 degrees which would be nice for everybody. because tomorrow, they will be getting about 90 degrees and then by the time we get to tuesday, they could be middle 90's. this is a hot, couple of day stretch that we will be
finding coming in here, especially as we get through that monday, tuesday timetable. our computer model not exactly right with where the heavier rain is because it is right down here but notice, the trend, the trend toys get it out of here. by noon we're looking at sunshine and a few clouds and a chance of picking up some showers as we go through later on this afternoon and first part of this evening and then it is gone. we are left with some sunshine tomorrow and it will be humid around here as well tomorrow. so tuesday maybe another chance of picking up some showers, this is, of course, going to be refined time-wise but this computer model says, yes, as far as our temperatures go today about 90 degrees, in philadelphia, middle 80's, shore poconos everybody clearing out later on everybody with the chance of the shower or thunderstorm later of this afternoon. hot day keep cool, keep your pets with you, if you are in cool conditions, shade for everybody, today. because we will be find something sun breaks. sun and 72 degrees. partly cloudy. slight shower chance tonight.
