specially gusty wind, and small risk for some small size hail. the tornado risk very low today, but from storm prediction center at about 2%, so something that we at least want to mention. meantime i don't think that is as much of a concern rather the gusty wind, and perhaps some heavy downpours that come along, and also the lightning that might fire up out there. meantime, no storms in site for now locally. 68 degrees the current temperature with calm wind, at 60 as well in atlantic city and we take you around the region here throughout the course of the day, starting with some sun the further to the closer to the shore you are, more likely it is you will get most of the day in without any wet weather issues eventually the system does have to move through for everybody. weep get you to the mid 80s city cooler, some of the resort towns and do you have deal with some unsettled weather here on this final day of june. can you believe we're already coming up on july? crazy stuff but building heat humidity, as is typical for the early days of july coming our way. and that last headline, decent holiday weekend, it is
