11:45 am
the weekend. so we don't have flooding problems. see a little more sunshine out there, the clouds are a little thinner. 51 degrees. the wind is out of the west at 7 miles an hour. and that wind is going to be one of the things that helped prevent us from getting a repeat of that fog that we had last night and we had yesterday. you can see 7 to 12 miles an hour. and that's about all we need with lowering humidity to prevent that fog tonight. you see how thick the clouds are in delaware south jersey even there, the clouds are thinning out. so we're seeing some improvement in the weather. not the only place that is not changing is sussex county in delaware. that continues to be wet. when we see another area of rain building up in the gulf of mexico getting ready to come this way. now, it is obviously not going to be here tomorrow but here is friday. friday morning, we're dry and the rain is not even close.
11:46 am
