12:25 pm
your temperature is up to 81 degree, it's beginning to feel warmer out there. and i'll point out the dow point is up to 67 and that indicates cooler air, with the thick cloud cover, you are not feeling the humidity. winds out of the west at 20 miles per hour it's on the breezy side today. upper 70s in reading and wilmington. 80 in millville, and low 80s at the airport in atlantic city. and down the coach along the beach. the last couple of runs of this model are backing off from the placement of showers and thunderstorms. as we get up to 3:00 some of this is going to the western suburbs, not all of that is substantial. and pushing towards the evening, a couple of lines are possible. as we get into the early evening hours. the issue is not the volume or
12:26 pm
number of the cells, where one hits, and dealing with the humid air we are talking about it can give you an isolated heavy downpour. they are off the coast earlier tonight. the risk factor from this, where any of these manage to pop up. flash flooding is only moderate. it's a small chance, only if we got a small storm, that took longer to get past a given area, a moderate risk for strong winds, not of a severe variety. that is because any storm will push gusty wind ahead of it, we are not looking at hail or tornadoes this afternoon or this evening. muggy and humid, 81 is your high and there is obviously a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm, particularly the latest we go through the afternoon, the storms are hanging up inland. you are not looking at a bad day, 85 and dry and the storms hold off until tonight. in philadelphia, a high of 88
