5:09 am
you got sky6. there's the airport. kind of a pretty picture there. i don't know that we've had that shot all that often. and humid conditions there in case you were headed down to the airport or anywhere else. 69 degrees currently on the temperature dial, thermometer that would be up in allentown. 70 in reading. 77 currently in philadelphia so it's warm and again those dewpoints as you look at these numbers are also in the 70's in most areas and that means oppressive humidity. you'll really feel it after the sun gets up over the horizon. in the lehigh valley today t-hot and humid, a spotty storm can't be ruled out and they could produce drenching downpours where they hit as well as some gusty winds today so take cover from any storms. 87 up there. down the beach a better day as we have a much smaller chance of a thunderstorm or shower. still want you to head in off the water if you -- or off the beach if you do hear thunder but it looks like low to mid 80's up and down the jersey shore and probably mid 80's down along the delaware bay. moderate risk to small risk of rip currents today. hot and humid in philadelphia. spotty thunderstorm can't be
5:10 am
ruled out and a high of 93 because of the high humidity it will feel like it's about 98 this afternoon. and warm and humid overnight with maybe an evening thunderstorm. otherwise just 76 and muggy overnight. let's cover the rain story. today maybe a little bit of something popping through later this morning particularly north of philadelphia but it's really this afternoon that we expect some spotty stuff to begin to pop and again anything that does pop up could produce a drenching downpour. there's obviously not a whole lot on storm tracker and future tracker as we look into the afternoon but anything that does hit could produce a drenching downpour or a strong gusty wind. there's an isolated chance of a strong storm around the region today. by 11:00 we're dry. tomorrow morning probably dry but tomorrow afternoon we get into the same pattern where in spots in will be a drenching downpour producing thunderstorm. it's spotty stuff. any storms that form we'll value high chance of producing frequent lightning strong gusty winds and a moderate chance of hail. today there's a small chance
5:11 am
of a strong storm that could bring you that sort of thing. the best chance this week is probably thursday. your seven-day from accuweather hot and humid today. some thunderstorms in some spots 93. tomorrow humid way spotty storm 92 and then thursday we've got the red bar on there 'cause it's going to be oppressively humid with heat index values up around 105 or close to that. and a better chance of some of strong storms. then we ease that temperature way down on friday but it's still muggy and there's still a chance of some isolated downpours and flash flooding possible then on friday. but we are settling down for the weekend so things are going to pretty quickly get better. >> all right. thank you, david. it is now 5:11 and a sixers star makes a catch at the home run derby. >> new on "action news," the father of a u.s. soldier charged with supporting terrorists talks about his son. >> and two local octogenarians take the jump of a lifetime. karen. >> look at them go. live here on the blue route approaching the schuylkill. traffic moving nicely right here. we'll take you to fort
