a dog just walked up the staircase and on to the plane, no additional information about this threat but taken seriously at the moment. we'll monitor this on air and online through the afternoon at 6abc.com. all right in the meantime, lets get one last check of the forecast, meteorologist david murphy are you ready david? >> reporter: oh the microphone slipped out. >> i'll give the forecast if you want. it's nice today and warm out and maybe a chance of precipitation. maybe by the shore. >> stormtracker 6 live double scan we have the radar showing you a bit of a shower to the east. but most of this is now off the coast, as we take a look outside we are looking at sky 6 hd, i believe. no it's the action cam earlier, pretty fountains in play by the art museum. and it's really warm, you see the people with the short-sleeves, just doing really fine across the region right
now. than is the way it's going to be tonight and tomorrow looking pretty good. as we take a look at the current temperature, we are looking at 72 degrees in philadelphia and your winds, 8 miles per hour a little on the light side, no double digit winds across the region right now. circulating counterclockwise around an area of low pressure, taking the showers to the east. if we see something this afternoon it's very likely to be east of philadelphia, over by lakehurst or ocean county. there you see future tracker 6 keeping everything to the east. but something that could pop up includes thunder, so take cover from that. no severe weather expected but a few showers or thunderstorms possible to the east. and 9:30 it's pretty much dying down. high temperatures low 80s in allentown and reading and 76 in trenton and 76 in millville.
down the shore we'll get up to about 70 degrees, a little cooler but better than recently web we were stuck in the 60s. 77 degrees by 2:00, that is your high 79 degrees, we'll have to wait until 4:00 to get there and i see us sitting on or about that until dinner time. by 6:00 we go 78. 76 by 8:00 and slowly cascading down to 72 by 10:00, and overnight low 60s in most neighborhoods. and the next thing we are looking for is that area of high pressure. a bermuda high the kind of thing we see in the summertime. it sets up off the coast for several days and the clockwise flow around a high grabs on to the warm air down at the gulf coast and brings it on in. thursday and friday we'll add humidity into the picture and there may be afternoon pop-up showers or thunderstorms in what is an increasingly unstable air mass, especially friday and saturday and sunday as well.
what to expect then overall, high well into the 80s on some of these days, and humid conditions and a spotty afternoon thunderstorm possible. but none of the weekend, including memorial day look like washouts, but there could be spotty pop-ups, i wouldn't cancel my plans, or anything you plan on do, memorial services and ceremonies, but if you hear thunder get inside while the storm passes. 79 today and clouds mixing with sun and a chance of a shower eeflt of philadelphia and sunny and warm tomorrow and 76 degrees and low humidity and thursday warm and a high of 70 and the big change is the addition of more humidity on thursday. friday warm and humid and 88 and we'll start to look at the pop-up storms i talked about. and saturday and sunday highs in the mid-80s and a thunderstorm is it not out of the question.
memorial day is less intense with the heat. a spotty late day thunderstorm is possible. but not a washout this weekend. >> thank you david. >> well, tonight is the night, the next mirror ball trophy will be chosen on dancing with the stars. part two kicks off tonight at 9:00. there were no eliminations but page van sant brought home the high score of the evening, and ginger zee one point behind and nile demarco one point behind her. the season ends with the grand finale at 9:00 here on 6 abc.
west of philadelphia, we include kutztown and reading in those numbers. in the i-95 corridor, 79's and berlin 77 and as we move toward the shore, we will get into the low 70s, cooler at the shore but at least in the 70s where you have been stuck in the 60s for a while. if we see a thundershower or shower east of burlington county in all likelihood. >> we are standing by awaiting a hearing, a decision in the preliminary hearing for bill cosby. as they determine whether or not the case moves to trial. we'll bring it to you on air and online. don't forget to join us later this afternoon at 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00. have a nice afternoon.
