6:31 am
have 3-mile visibility but the fog is a big issue today and especially 'cause the roads are wet so it's easy to kind of slip and slide around when you can't see very well. 57 degrees, how about these temperatures. we stayed above our average high even in the overnight hours. 59 degrees in millville. 58 in dover. today temperatures are going to be about 20 degrees above average. but satellite six and action radar showing we already have lots of clouds, the rain not that far off. if you head out right now it's dry but it's not going to be the case in a few hours. let's take a look at what you can expect today. at 7 o'clock still dealing with the fog. at 10:00 a.m., some heavy rain at times, especially south of the city. and 60 degrees. by about lunchtime to maybe 3 o'clock, a bit of a lull where it's just cloudy and rather damp and then by 7 o'clock, we're certainly in the showers once again in and out of it, 67 so really periods of rain all day with a high of 68 degrees. so, matt, that doesn't spell good news for either your morning commute or your evening commute. >> to your earlier question what more could you ask for?
