storm tracker 6 live double scan shows you we're dry this morning. as we take a look outside we're looking at sunshine up over the horizon a little later on. there has been some patchy fog here and there across the region but we're not seeing it at the shore or in most areas close to philadelphia. the north jersey shore has seen the worst of this, parts of burlington county and ocean county in the thick of some fog this morning. couple of highlights to your forecast. we have two more mild days before that chilly change is on the way. so, today veterans day and tomorrow both looking good. 46 degrees right now, starting out cool, of course, calm winds always help. and as we take a look at is the light, well, the view isn't that bad. we've got some cloud cover out to the west that's falling apart. some low lying clouds in parts of the region this morning but they'll burn off pretty quickly and then we're looking at a good portion of the day where we're going to see mainly sunny skies out there with perhaps the development of a few additional clouds as the day goes on. we are looking at cool temperatures to start out but mild temperatures later on. 45 degrees by 8 o'clock. but by 11 o'clock, 57 degrees
and then by 2 o'clock, 66. we may not hit that high of 67 until about 3:00 today and if we manage to hold onto the sun and see less cloud cover, we could even add a degree or two, to that 67-degree high but i think that's a pretty good bet and either way it's going to be nice and mild and comfortable. 65 is your high in allentown, 66 in trenton, 67 in wilmington, 64 in cape may and 66 degrees in atlantic city. sun mixing with a few clouds. out to the west of us, we can see that crush of cold air that has now entered the central states, even as far south as wichita kansas we're down to 27 degrees right now. it will take awhile for that cooler air to move toward the east, so again, two more mild days but once that move takes place, we will start to see our temperatures go down. now, it's not going to be as bad as it is out in the central states. the next two days looking at temperatures 15 to 30 degrees below average as that colder air moves toward the east, it will moderate and we'll only wind up with about 10 to 15 degrees below average but it will feel cooler and colder in fact especially in the mornings as we head towards
the end of the week. 67 is today's high. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, nice and mild, clouds and sun on wednesday, a high of 65. and then on thursday, brisk and colder conditions, 49 degrees and at night there is the possibility of a little wave coming through that gives us either a rain or maybe even a wet snow shower. now, i'm not expecting accumulation from this but thursday night, as far south as philadelphia we might see the season's first snowflakes. and then brisk and cold in philadelphia on friday, 45 degrees the high. and notice how the overnight lows are dipping down to about the freezing mark in through here. that means when you wake up in the morning and step outside, it will be cold and then stays pretty chilly in the afternoon. as we head into the weekend, saturday still chilly, 44. we're watching the coast on zinn, a coastal storm might push a little bit of precipitation in during the day and that could also be either rain or maybe a snow shower. remember to watch "action news" on thursday night at 11:00 as we'll be unveiling this year's accuweather winter weather outlook, talking about -- thank you matt for the sound effects talking about how much snow we're going get and whether it's above average, below average
temperature-wise and precip-wise. thursday night at 11:00. >> also hope we don't hear a lot of that this winter. >> we'll see. >> it is 5:41 and toxic fumes fill the air in a south philadelphia home in the end sending two people to the hospital. >> captain of the sunken south korean ferry learns his fate for the deaths of more than 300 people. karen. >> live in chadds ford at route 1 at creek road. a we're clear, we're dry. >> slow moving lava has reached a big home on hawaii's big island.

montgomery county. southbound they reopened old york road. northbound still shut down. stick to huntington pike -- huntington road and highland avenue as your alternates to deal with the closure. in cherry hill in camden county, new jersey, 295 southbound approaching route 70 we've got the two right lanes blocked but that should be wrapping up pretty shortly. we expect those crews to leave momentarily. hopefully things will be easing up a bit right there. let's check your visibility reports. 9-mile visibility at philadelphia international airport. no problem there. 3-mile visibility in lancaster. we're looking at 2-mile visibility in millville, .3-mile visibility along the coastline. a minute ago we were watching a small little area of fog and we can see how this has progressed through the region. watching this fog develop. it's patchy at the moment but something we're looking out for. temperature-wise it doesn't feel too bad out there i goals it's cool, 38 degrees in martin's creek, that chilly, 36 pottstown. but we're at 42 in center city, a little better than yesterday. 39 in browns mill. 41 degrees right now in dover
