the norovirus outbreak sickened 158 passenger and 14 crew members on the crown princess. crews cleaned the ship when it returned to port yesterday morning, and left for its next trip last night. the second viewer owe virus outbreak on that ship just this year. >> 7:43, and here's your traffic and weather together. katy? >> we check in with the eyewitness weather watcher. start off with map mode here, against sense of the kind of temperatures our weather watch remembers finding, at least the ones that sent in most update to date information for you. mainly talking low 40's, as low as the upper 30's, almost every location, little miler as you get toward the moderating influence of the open ocean water. but, the rain has been falling pretty steadily across much of the board here this morning. so couple of rain and the that came in, mark sent in from chads worth, pa, rather, new jersey, just over a .10 of an inch or so in tuckerton, tim sent in .72 inches, and the list goes on, hatboro, kyle
7:44 am
sent in just over half inch, depends on what you have seen, but everybody dealt with rain at this point, even if you got bit of a lull, i can't promise you it is over yet. storm scan3, explain, why. so this storm system, it is a doozy, big one, and it has got a lot of different impacts. down across the deep south, in fact, already seen numerous tornados watches, even tornado warning go into effect down south. severe weather not our concern, just rainmaker, obviously also enough cold air to produce quite a swab of snow here on the back edge of the cold front. now looks as though the storm actually will pull away too quickly for any snow here. we do not have to worry about. that will but i want to walk you through what will happen in future weather. i like the way this has initialize dollars. yes even if you don't have any rain right now, somewhat of a brief break. because eventually, the cold front has to cross. that's what's going to usher in the heaviest of the rain for the areas. so by the noon lunch hour headed outdoors maybe taking drive to go do somer and you will hit this.
7:45 am
slug of moisture, that moves through, and then by the time we hit 5:00 p.m., still dealing with some pretty heavy rain specially going down toward the garden state parkway at least according to this particular model. 8:00 p.m., prime time tv starts and the rainout of here. so things going to clear out quickly, and that allows the thermometer to just take a little nose dive through the overnight actually big nose dive, which we will talk b currently outside cut town area middle school one loan rain drop on the camera lens here, but, it is definitely causing visibility issues out here. see some of the fog off in the distance, a chilly 34 degrees, and again, despite brief lull here, you are going to eventually seymour rain picking up everywhere here in the delaware vale. but it is a strictly rain making storm for the delaware valley, up in the poconos, carbon, monroe county maybe little freeze on contact until the temperatures climb. otherwise looking at just rain. gross day. i mean, just not pretty one. do you have bundle up. feels awfully chilly outside speaking of bundling up, look at the plunge that we take on the thermometer. it is no better than just shy
7:46 am
