scan right now and you've got nothing going on in the way of rain. taking a look outside, it's a nice enough morning. there is a little low lying cloud cover obscuring the view of the tops of the center city sky scrapers but we're not seeing a whole lot of reports around the region. you might run into patchy fog this morning. generally speaking i think it's just clouds and clear spaces. 65 degrees currently in allentown, 67 in reading, 66 in trenton, 67 in philadelphia and wilmington and 68 degrees currently in cape may. satellite shows you how there's a little more cloud cover dancing around the region than what there was yesterday when we had virtually nothing. still i think there will be some sun getting through this morning. up in the lehigh valley we'll call it sun and clouds, warm and humid, a high of 87. yesterday you got up to the low 90's. not today. 79 degrees, sun and clouds at the shore today. another problem with rip currents. in fact, the national weather service now says that rip current issue will probably be running high not only today but tomorrow and thursday as well, so word to the wise if you're down the shore this
6:09 am
week, it's going to be nice on the beach but not so much in the water. and then in philadelphia, sun and clouds, warm and humid, a high of 86 today. winds light five to 10 miles per hour. so, not much of a breeze. tonight the ballpark the phillies teague it up against the nationals again at 7:05, partly cloudy, humid tonight, 80 degrees for the first pitch, 74 with the ninth inning, pretty similar to the conditions you had at the ballpark last night. overnight tonight partly cloudy, still warm and still humid, 71 degrees is the overnight low with calm winds so not much relief there. but then on wednesday, it is going to get really warm 'cause we've got a front coming at us from the west and we'll probably bop up to about 88 degrees for a high but that front is going to come through during the day on thursday. it's going to take maria which will probably still be either a hurricane or a tropical storm and should have it shove it out to sea before it manages to get up to our latitude. so nothing but rip currents from that. behind the front especially by friday a blast of fall for late in the week and the weekend. big changes coming up. your exclusive accuweather
6:10 am
7-day forecast, 86 is today's high, warm and humid. tomorrow warm, a high of 88. thursday that front comes through. we may shoot up to 80 ahead of the front but i could see temperatures tumbling later in the day and at night all the way down to 57 overnight and humidity dropping. then friday, sunny and nice, 75. yom kippur arrives at sundown. for the weekend it really feels like autumn. breezy and cooler on saturday, 69 for a high. that is absolutely football weather for the temple game. and what else? 71 degrees then on sunday for the union and the phillies final game of the season. looks like 70's next week, too. >> looks like early fall. >> yeah. >> thanks, david. 6:10 now. and next and new this morning, an eagle eyed pilot acts fast to avoid a midair collision. >> tech companies promise they are about to fix your gps so it's less like to lead you astray. karen. >> i-95 at girard showing that southbound traffic already starting to get slow from allegheny to girard as you head towards center city. we have a bunch of accidents, couple new ones just coming in. i'll run through them next.
