just empty themselves out of the moisture that they are trying to hold. we will eventually end up with heavier rain later this morning. rest of the next couple hours right through our show, i think we're good. it is muggy, foggy but here's when we see that first round coming in towards tail end of the morning rush northwestern counties included with that. i don't think philadelphia is. you might see a quick shower but the morning should be fine then we should brighten up. more sunshine we get more volatile these storms can become. as early as 3:00 p.m. those storms rumbling through chester county, delco and even before the hour is over second half an hour of the 3:00 o'clock hour it is crossing the river. these are fast storms that will hit before you blink, but they will bring heavy rain very likely and also some, very gusty winds. i'm getting wrap. let me jump to the seven day, win, heavy downpours but we will hit 75 in the meantime, flirt with record territory and then temperatures drops off quickly by tomorrow, meisha. >> katie, thanks very much.

welcome back. check this out, there is incredible video from mt. etna in cecily, volcano has been erupting since monday night, and so these eruptions cannulas for days or even weeks, nearby airport is opened and running as normally , though which is interesting. now telling authorities do say eruptions pose no danger to nearby towns but i think that would be critical as to whether airport would be able to stay opened. i can only imagine what a view must like be like if you are taking off from a plane and seeing volcano erupting from below. unbelievable. no volume kaine i can activity here locally but we
have a fair share of fire works expected throughout the day. storm scan three is showing heavy thunderstorms, downpours look to be the biggest concern that we will have out of any rain or storms here today. we will see two separate rounds. one late morning especially in the northern counties, lehigh valley, poconos region, that should be just rain but there could be embedded thunderstorms. see that batch moving into pennsylvania that is what we're expecting. then later this afternoon i would say between three as late as 7:00 o'clock from west to east, the strongest of the thunderstorms will come through here. heavy downpours, gusty winds look to be biggest concerns, cloud to ground light evening would be an issue if we get sunshine. this will be a volatile event here. tornadic activity is out of the question but that is a very low threat. that is good. seventy-five is our high. that is other big head line. we will flirt with records again today but obviously, pretty steep price. >> meisha, back over to you. when first rain comes through do you think it is
after 9:00. >> it will be here before that >> okay, thank you so much for that. something to definitely factor in our commuting plans this morning. looking at ben franklin bridge pushing in the westbound direction, looking very, very, quiet. so you are in great hands if you are heading out there right now. look at this fog, i-95 at the northbound direction at commodore barry bridge. this will pose a little visibility issues this morning and slow you down as well a little bit. because of that on the commodore barry bridge they have speed restrictionness play, 35 miles an hour just dropped to slower down to 25 miles an hour, jim, over to you. thanks, meisha. in the next hour we are live in washington d.c. with highlights from last night's presidential address. plus we're also hearing from pennsylvania voters react to go president trump's first major address. our pat gallen goes one on one with u.s. women's soccer star carli lloyd and gets her thoughts on playing soccer abroad, we are back at the top of the hour, stay with

good morning i'm jim donovan. i'm rahel solomon. katie and meisha is keeping an eye on things talking about potential storms. >> yes, yikes. we're looking outside at the roadways and we are looking okay. only thing in terms of the weather is fog, commodore barry bridge is seeing speed restrictionness play. just a heads up on that. >> you will find those issues signature in the warm sector of the storm where we have lots of moisture. for the moment light wind and undercover of the darkness helps that fog to form because with the drop in temperature overnight we will see typically anyway those temperatures have a chance to get closer to the dew point and closer they are more saturated air mass ends up in short you can get fog to form. we are still on storm watch but they will not get here for at least a couple of hours. there will be one round that moves in late this morning and more than anything that is heavy rain and it is true for northwestern counties but other round, more feisty round gets here later this afternoon at the moment for the most part we are calm, but as
