worth it. that said, we have beautiful skies out there across the board, whether hitting the shore or maybe headed up to the mountains, here is a view of them, out in the live neighborhood network, barely a breeze, you barely even notice it, it is more out of the west to the northwest here, right now, and that means it is a nice dry air mass, 78 degrees is the current temperature outside pleasant valley middle and high school. blue mountain off in the distance, nothing more than patchy clouds overhead, will the way it will stay. weak cell in place right now, so enjoy this. you know, one of those perfect summer days, the problem is, this doesn't last very long. we are going to see another system cross through, it comes tomorrow, you can see, it starting to get its act together right now across the central planes, and eventually, a dough owe of fronts will move through, that happens tomorrow, with a warmfront first followed up by a cold front, and eventually we even see the potential for some locally stronger thunderstorms, so there is a severe weather threat that gets posted, as of tomorrow, this isn't for today, this is tomorrow. marginal risk, and, we say marginal, basically the lowest on the totem pole, but there
12:21 pm
is still the possibility that when storms start to fire up specially through the second half of the day, they could turn locally strong, bringing heavy downpours, gusty wind, possibly some small size hail. so northern half of the region we have to watch for. that will let's take you forward in future weather. taking you all the way into the overnight hours headed into early tomorrow morning, already, some moisture starting to speckle the area radar, possibility of just quick shower, that will continue to lift in, with cloud cover, building, as well as the potential for a shower. really, guys, i would say any time is fair game for shower or under this earl storm, but looks like mainly just showers, in the first half of the day, as the warmfront lifts in, and then, a better shot, later toward evening, for some heavier thunderstorms, and at this point, our future weather model is initializing very well, that that region that would sit in the marginal risk is, in fact, see some stronger thunderstorms. so again, we have to keep close watch on the radar, certainly we will do that for you, 7:00 tail ends of typical evening rush, finding that maybe moving through philadelphia, 7:30, 8:00 p.m., slowly creeping hour by hour,
12:22 pm
closer and closer to the shore. by the time you hit the overnight though things will be clearing out nicely. now that said, comfort index, you know, still feeling very, very comfortable here at the local level. recurring dew .54 degrees, lower that number, the drier the air mass, and so it is very comfortable, for late june standards, to have dew points this low, pretty awesome. enjoy it while you have got it t to does not last forever, once we see the next front lift in, it will help bring an up tick in humidity. i jump you past the weekends to the fourth of july. here's where things have been updated, warmfront that starts to lift north. depending on it timing, we may see a shower for the fireworks that night. overall, the day as a whole looks gorgeous. but it really depends on how quickly that front can lift in. and at this point, i'm going to keep it optimist being and say that generally we expect a dry fourth of july. best shot for showers will be south of the city, at night, and then tuesday, it is pretty much sure bet with timing that will see some rain. so as things start to evolve and change, of course we'll keep you updated.
