11:50 am
significant weather is coming. there's the comcast center. all that blue sky behind it. finally, it has taken a while before the sun has come out. it's 75 degrees now. humidity is not bad at all. the wind is out of the north. we're four degrees warmer than we were at this time yesterday. the temperatures are rising through the 70s in much of the area as we're seeing more sunshine, of course. only 66 in the poconos. we will see how the beaches are doing. we have had high surf advisories, coastal flood advisories for a couple days. this is the last day of it probably. a high rip current risk. the wind out of the northeast keeping things cool and keeping those waters kind of high. we're going to be getting changes there. nothing on the live radar at the moment. things are going to be changing as we go into late tomorrow. here is the reason on the left side of the screen.

11:52 am
but not quite as nice for saturday as you will see. mostly sunny this afternoon. really nice. high temperature up near 80. about average for this time of the year. and fairly low humidity. the humidity will go up, the temperature will go up tomorrow. the storm threat will go way , , tomorrow afternoon and early evening. friday should be dry, cooler, less humid. but the rain may come back on saturday. so the front that goes through tomorrow night, stalls to our south and then comes back on saturday. we dry back out on sunday and then the front comes back again by next tuesday. you can vote for the high school blitz game of the week for friday.
