12:19 pm
it is a few days away, nothing to track just yet on the radar , until this actually starts to form, are we, you know, not going to necessarily have the exact track of where this will go, but we definitely know we're in for impact from this. and specific to the far northwestern counties and then near the shore point, we will end up with some side effect impacts that come from this. so let's get out there. start it off with a view of the shore. and no shock here, we have seen a lot of people up and down the boardwalk, looks like pretty quiet ocean city cape may county plenty more people as the day goes on, perhaps not as much traffic out here on the board, but there are couple of folks out, there not a single cloud to be had out there. as we get to this point of the year in full sun, sung angle starting to climb high enough it actually starts to feel warm. when you're in that direct sunlight. so nice start to the afternoon the rest of the day is going to follow suit. i know my girls are at the park right now with dad, so they're hopefully getting pooped out out there on the
12:20 pm
jungle gym. looking at storm scan3, totally clear east of the mississippi basically. we do have the combination of some stormy weather starting to form over parts of oklahoma , part of the lone star state as well, and eventually this is part of the energy that's going to be working it way toward us, and then transferring the energy into a coastal area of low pressure. so, how is the mechanism of the upper atmosphere really causing all of this? the basic idea is this. that we're going to see an area of high pressure set up a blocking pattern. what that means, is that as this storm is just out to sea it will have the opportunity to intensify. and as is it does that, depending on where it finally ends up tracking, you end up potentially with some very drenching precipitation, and it is strengthening as it goes , too, so we will eventually see this clear out in time for the weekends, but this will post some pretty substantial impact for us, on the pm hours of thursday through most of friday. so, the wild-card with this are the exact track. since nothing has actually blossomed just yet, or formed, and also, how intense does
12:21 pm
this become as it is moving off shore, meantime, also, the not only the amount of precipitation but the actual kind of precipitation is something that is still a bit of a question mark. now, i think it is primarily a rain event. if you go into the far north and western suburbs, especially, so lehigh valley, poconos, berks, lancaster counties, that's your best chance to maybe see some snow out of this, as the colder air gets wrapped into the back side of this storm system. for philly, this is very likely strictly just a raw chilly rainy system. again, it is thursday pm through friday. let's just talk winter in general. we haven't had a lot of snow. we have seen 18 days throughout the span of the winter, of at least trace of snow, and that has led to over a foot worth of total snowfall so far. but recall, i mean, we're all still young enough to remember old enough i guess depending how you look at it the zero nine/2010 season ended up with the most snowy season ever since lords began and ended up
12:22 pm
, and no hope of achieving that specially with such warm month of february that we've seen. now the other thing working against you typically your average heights are starting to climb nicely, usually gain about 10 degrees over the span of any given month or loose 10 e time of year. by the end of march averaging near 60. so really is getting to the point of year where it is starting to feel warmer and warmer. tomorrow is following suit with temperatures currently in the low and mid 50's, and only going to climb from here few additional degrees. i expect the high to hit about 58 in the city, it is clear, it is calm tonight, as we drop down to 37, that sun goes cents down before 6:00 p.m. but regardless, we will enjoy the rest of the afternoon. looking ahead to thursday pm and friday, pack your patience on the umbrella you will need it for what promises to be some unfortunately very miserable weather to start the new month but today is nice. >> so enjoy this. >> thank you, katie. well if you aren't worry about your calorie count, today is a great day to choy down on some pancakes. >> today is national pancake
