moving right through south jersey. and into winslow. the pockets of reds and oranges, that is the heavy rain falling at around 1 to 3 inches an hour. it's not staying in one spot for a straight hour, so most of us aren't seeing such quite high totals. toms river, that is that band all the way up to brick and this is moving to the east as well. so look at some of the estimated rainfall totals so far, close to 2 inches in the northwest part of philadelphia county. about 1 1/2 inches in some of the upper suburbs. and that yellow, around 2 inches estimated. that area actually saw a severe thunderstorm warning early in the morning hours, but that has since expired. most of us are in thetoday we'l average. we'll track it coming up.

neighborhoods in philadelphia, but most of us will stick in the low 80s. and at the jersey shore, same deal right near the upper 70s this afternoon and notice the icon switching from cloudy to a mix of sun and clouds by this afternoon. we'll talk more about the rest of your weekend and when we could see another round of storms coming up. music keeps rolling at a popular summer event. why fans say musikfest is better than ever.

suburbs, chester county, berks, lehigh valley, these areas just have spotty showers left behind and the clouds. so already some of us are seeing the heaviest rain move on out. but here is a closer look right through philadelphia and into charlie hill, bellmawr, these are areas where we have pretty steady rain falling. not getting that high of rain totals, but between 1 and 2 inches by the time this is all said and done. not going to be a shock. we go a little farther to the northeast, areas like middletown, bensalem also looking at pockets of still steady to heavy rain falling. but again this is weakening and moving to the east. so it will be out soon enough, that morning heavy rain you heard will start coming to a close in these areas. still have some time for the heaviest rain to move out of south jersey. you see stretching from pemberton to the shore, at about 2 inches per hour near lacey and toms river as well. but even this will weaken as it
moves farther to the east. so timing of that? we're looking at it moving out here in the next couple much hours. our temperatures certainly feeling the effects of the rain moving in. 68 in the lehigh valley and philadelphia, suburbs at 66 and jersey shore not getting the rain yet, so sitting in the 70s. in our philadelphia neighborhoods, we drop down most of us are consistently in the upper 60s at 68 chestnut hill, west mt. airy and the airport 69 for parkwood. forecast conditions for us as we go through today, low 80s center city at 83, somerton at 81, these storms only for the next hour or so and then that turns into a more mostly sunny forecast in the afternoon. in the suburbs, upper 70s to low 80s. same deal lie high valley and berks county. voorhees township at 82. near 80 i think for a lot of spots along the jersey shore and then we should see temperatures around 84 for wilmington.
so the hour by hour to track out the line of storms, notice it's already showing up pretty nicely that from 5:00 to 6:00, the heaviest rain moves out. i disagree with this break. i think this will connect, but it will move near the shore between 6:00 and 8:00 a.m. starting to move off. we'll be left with clouds, some spotty showers. by your lunchtime, we should start to see plenty of sun. we'll talk more about your sunday forecast coming up in the next half hour. in the lehigh valley, musikfest continues today in bethlehem. the festival showcases all kinds of artists from up and comers to class beiic rock legends like chicago who perform tonight. fans say it's the variety that keeps them coming back year after year. >> always looking for new music. we have always found a couple. >> i would say it's gotten
