actually get expanded pretty much the entire keystone state is include in the that and most of the garden state, all of delaware state, and, in other words, we have up the and tee little bit. becoming more confident in forecasting that we will end up with some strong to severe thunderstorms out of this. now, tomorrow, this is 9:00 a.m., this is mainly just rain. possibly thunderstorms. the squawl line will wait until later in the day. so have one round likely in the morning, maybe lingering shower at some point toward lunchtime. then we catch a break. that's whether we will warm up. if we get enough sunshine to really heat the surface, this squawl line will mean business. because then you're really going have the instability, it is interesting, on a day that we expect storms, the more sunshine you have, the more likely those storms turn really nasty. so that's sort of little tid-bit, nice and bright, could end up strong storms, look at this by 4:00 p.m. right over philadelphia county important to note the time line may change. but yesterday was a lot later, and it will continue to change into tomorrow, so stick with us on that, but still p.m.
