later and then exiting sooner. it is just squeeze playing that moisture into one more minute time frame but it does occur over course of the weekend. we will show you what is happening at that localized zoom of storm scan more cloud building in but we still have sunshine if you are watching us right now from your shore house and head out to the beach for a couple hours you can definitely do that but with time, and i'll show that in future weather in a second things do go back downhill, already that has begun to be the case through lake erie for example and that moisture working its way up the appalachians. it is a sign of things to come because we have more sunshine we may end up with heavier thunderstorms true for far northern western suburbs and poconos for example second half of the day. so come shortly after lunchtime we may begin to see that activity picking up at that more localized level and again, it looks primarily like if we have got any showers or storms later this afternoon they are removed from the city off to the north and west.
