9:00 am
tonight into tomorrow. i certainly want to give you a heads-up on that. otherwise, clouds breaking by 11:00 a.m. i just looked at the new n.a.m. model. a few clouds sticking around and everything else is clearing as the high pressure system settles into place nicely for today and tomorrow. a change by monday into tuesday. by noon, afternoon hours, low dew points, mainly in the 50s. certainly very comfortable day in the forecast. take full advantage of that because we do have a muggier day by tomorrow. as i mentioned, the overnight fog. i mention that often especially because it gets a little bit soupier, thicker, the marine layer especially along the shoreline. notice the current wind speed and wind direction. even though we are not seeing anything outstanding we're seeing an easterly push due to a low pressure system 100 to 200 miles offshore. that's making the clouds stick around a little bit longer.
9:01 am
no wireorries. as the low moves eastward so will the cloud. i'll give it by 11:00 a.m., certainly by noon we'll see improvement. you can always follow us on social media, twitter and facebook for more updates. ted, back to you. happening today, philadelphia will launch the schuylkill river trail watch program. nbc10's monique braxton is live near the trail where there has been a recent uptick in crimes against runners, walkers and cyclists, monique. >> reporter: hey there, ted. the schuylkill river trail watch program kicks off officially in about an hour and a half at this park that you see just over my shoulder. it's all about adding an extra set of eyes and ears to a part of the city that's already been hit by crime. last month police were called to the trail for two separate incidents. each time someone saw a man performing a lewd act. one person was arrested, but another person got away.
