bit and we have a fair amount of sunshine coming through but you don't have to go too much farther west to find the thicker spots. you'll see the skies turning more gray, and we turn our eyes to the precipitation, the leading age may fall apart before it pushes in. but we have a late day arrival of sprinkles and showers, 82 in reading and 85 in wilmington and 85 in philadelphia later on and mid-80s all the way down to the shore, late rain arriving south. down along the coast itself no rip currents and we'll start to see a pickup in that, and maybe saturday as a wave of low pressure gets off the coast. nice on the beach and increasing clouds and perhaps rain, some of that in cape may county and in delaware and some could filter in closer to philadelphia as well. 76 in the water closer to
rehoboth beach 84 by 3:00 and 85 by 5:00, and by 7:00, basically cloudy and 82 is the high there, 79 by 9:00 and overnight low goes down to 67 degrees, for musikfest tonight in bethlehem, the rain that is arriving looks like a southern system and areas from philadelphia south that has a chance of being effected by this if you are headed north to bethlehem you are all right for duran duran. they hit at 8:30 with an opening ac before then. and 78 at show time. and then future tracker 6 showing you that overnight tonight and in through tomorrow there will be still be cloud cover around and there is disagreement as to how much precipitation we'll get out of this, the latest run that came out an hour ago on this one here the rpm, has backed off from much rain at all but there are
other models that show rain coming in late this evening and overnight and getting out of here at some point on friday afternoon. the different models in terms of how much rain we'll get differ a bit. this will really depend on the storm track and the track is far enough south where we end up with less than a .10 inch that means light rain or sprinkles around philadelphia but down the shore it's pushing higher amounts. somewhere a half inch or less looks pretty good, for cape may county maybe up as high as atlantic city and down through delaware, that builds in late this afternoon and this evening and intensifies into tomorrow morning 85 is today's high and increasing clouds and late sprinkles and showers are possible south of philadelphia late today and this evening, and then steadier rain in philadelphia late tonight and tomorrow rain to the south and a high of 80 degrees, and
philadelphia may see sprinkles or light stuff but steadier rain possible in parts of south jersey and delaware hopefully we dry out into the afternoon but the closer you are to the shore the longer it may last. tomorrow a break for sunshine and the weekend is looking great and a high of 83 in philadelphia and you can probably knock 3 degrees off that high in allentown and bethlehem where musikfest is happening. sunday looks great 86 under the sun and another nice one on monday. >> thank you. on the people scene tonight is john stewart's final appearance as the host of the daily show he took over in 1999 and steered the show from jokes to political satire he featured correspondents that went on to

atlantic city and cape may and over toward dover and points south, where we have the best chance of late rain, and continuing overnight into tomorrow morning. but it doesn't look like it will be an inundating rain because of area of low pressure is tracking far to the south and it's a bigger issue for washington d.c. and norfolk and raleigh and other points to the south. we are getting a brush from the storm and the first rain drops could occur late this afternoon and this evening. >> thank you. looks like flipper is taking up resident in the north jersey river the bottlenose dolphin dove in and out. it's connected to the raritan river that feeds in the raritan bay, it's not unusual for the dolphins to swim inland and believe it's smart enough to make its way out to the ocean
