weather this morning. maybe you're going to church, you want to pick up something at the store, a lot of people want to get out because it is the weekend. temperatures are not doing too badly. 71 in delaware. 68 at the jersey shore with just a peek of sunshine. that is good nice. close to 70 up here in west mount aries. we have temperatures in the upper 6s, so maybe a light jacket. so if you're taking a stroll on the beach, you may gate spritzer or two.
less humid air later on this afternoon. right now, just isolated showers in parts of south jersey. parts of southern atlantic county, and that will continue as we make our way through sunday, so as we got heavy cloud cover now, but we could see peeks of sunshine as it builds throughout the day. a high temperature of 82 today in philadelphia. but later on, as the cold front moves closer, an increased risk of these severe storms and an enhanced risk north and west of philadelphia. the risk is setting up north and west of philadelphia for the potential of thunderstorms to
become severe. by that we mean potential for damaging winds. so spotty showers will continue for us throughout the morning, and then we get a line of storms setting up in the afternoon as i mentioned moving west to east fairly quickly. by the evening hour, we're looking for the heavy stuff here to just push right through. philadelphia, parts of delaware, right into south jersey. i say the good news is that it is moving quickly and we don't anticipate widespread flooding.
