wilmington and from end ton. millville at 68 and down the shore mid 60's for your highs this afternoon. there is an issue for tomorrow, though. really a couple of them. tomorrow we are expecting a storm system to arrive and along the way some of us could be seeing some severe weather out of this. there is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms all the way up to about wilmington and over south jersey and delaware and we actually think that this area will likely get shoved north by the time we head into later today and tomorrow. the time period of course is thursday especially in the morning and early afternoon. notice how there's an orange area farther to the south where it's even a better chance of thunderstorms that could produce damaging wind gusts. and all of this again has a chance of coming even closer to us. in terms of future tracker6, between 5 o'clock and 7 o'clock in the morning there does look like there's the chance on the model of a couple of showers and maybe some early gusty thunderstorms so this could be one of those days where some of that more severe weather against to churn fairly early in the day. by noon there's a chance of month are of that.
