4:14 pm
other day coming. we have a chance of some showers in at least parts of the area during the night tonight and a big break coming first in the humidity, then in the temperature. got a lot of blue in the sky out there, at least looking in certain directions, so the humidity on the low side still. 92 degrees, that humidity at 32% so the feels like temperature is the same as the air temperature of 92. southwest wind at 17 miles an hour. we're in the 80s to the north and west 76 in mt. pocono. much, much cooler there. as we head to the shore, you would think it's a little cooler. it's 91 degrees in dover, by the way. let's see just how much cooler it is with that southwest wind. that's land breeze in delaware so lewes is 89 but it's only 82 in sea isle city 81 in atlantic city marina. 82 in beach haven. nice relief there. tomorrow rehoboth will be hot
4:15 pm
again. chance of a late shower cape may and atlantic city. you're going to be about 81 similar to today with the southwest wind. the only showers, we have one in berks county and a couple in the poconos here. very light but as you can see it on the camelback camera there, brief shower. that's about it. as we go through the evening, we'll see again some isolated showers, mainly north and west and then later on tonight, the humidity is up a little bit. we could see som will be seeing the showers coming through, there's tuesday, and we go through the day tomorrow fair amount of sunshine and that will allow the temperature to go up to near 90 degrees once again.
4:16 pm
not quite to 90 at the beaches because of that southwest wind and so we are going to have at least one more hot day. but the mild air is not that far off. just be a little patient. later on during the week it is going to be significantly cooler than what we have been seeing lately. for tonight, more humid, chance of a shower in some spots. 74 degrees in philadelphia. 67 north and west. the winds diminishing tonight, picking up again tomorrow. southwest wind hot and more humid tomorrow so the temperature's about the same. the humidity is a bit higher so it will feel a little bit hotter tomorrow. and a chance of some showers mainly in southern delaware and extreme south jersey down toward the shore like we showed you on those shore forecasts. the seven-day, less humid, much less humid on wednesday. the high temperature about 88
4:17 pm
degrees so if we don't break the heat on wednesday, we're certainly breaking the humidity. and we are breaking both on thursday. then we got a system coming in from the west on friday and we will get rain and maybe heavy rain out of that. that will help keep the temperatures down, maybe wind off the ocean as well. that rain could last into at least part of saturday before we start drying out. but look we don't have 90s after tomorrow. to decision 2016. vice president joe biden is in his home state of delaware today as speculation swirls about a presidential run. nbc news confirms biden has not closed the door on entering the presidential race. reports say it was his son's wish to have his father take on hillary clinton and the other four democrats in the primary. nbc 10 delaware bureau reporter tim furlong is following it all and joins us from greenville. the speculation has a lot of people talking.
4:18 pm
>> reporter: i don't think it's just here. i think people around the country are talking about this. it looks like joe biden is leaning toward a run but nobody said it for sure. he's in delaware at this point. people in politics tells me if he wants to jump into the race he needs to do it soon if he wants to catch hillary clinton, especially in terms of fund-raising. a lot of buzz around the bidens' property in greenville. even more on the streets of delaware. will he run or won't he. >> i think he has been through a lot and i think he would be a better president than hillary clinton and he would have my vote. >> reporter: there is certainly an element of sympathy for joe biden after losing his son to brain cancer earlier this summer. there are those who just love him because he's a local. >> he's a family man and when he see you [ inaudible ]. >> reporter: there is also a growing concern that maybe hillary clinton shouldn't just be handed the democratic nomination. >> i would vote for him based on what i'm thinking of hillary at
4:19 pm
the time. >> reporter: beau biden's long time family friend has signed to to a biden campaign. if this is just an effort to float the idea of a biden run it seems to be working. some say his plain-talking style appeals to people who see donald trump doing at least kind of the same thing. >> he's rude. and he hurts people's feelings. joe biden doesn't. he comes from a better place. >> reporter: kind of feels like 2007 when we were waiting to hear if joe biden would be announced as candidate for vice president. if he wants to jump into the presidential race he might have to do it soon. there's a finite window here in terms of fund-raising. hillary clinton has already raised $45 million at this point. he would definitely be playing catch-up. tim furlong, nbc 10 news. former president jimmy carter had surgery to remove a mass in his liver. a spokesperson says it was an
