5:45 am
that includes your pets, and make sure during this heat and humidity that they have enough water and you don't keep them outdoors too long. satellite radar showing our next cold front is all the the way out in the midwest, michigan, upper peninsula there in wisconsin, not expected to arrive here until middle will of the week. we don't to have worry about that just yet. we have temperatures that are already warm in some places. this isn't the warmest morning we have seen but it is pretty warm already, i would say muggy, of course, here in the city. sixty-two in mount pocono. seventy-one at ac international. sixty-four in wildwood. it is 68 degrease, and that is how we're starting off with our temperatures. the dew point temperature is a measure of the in moisture in the air and once you get in the 60's and all of our dew points are in the 60's now in the nice 50's on friday. now we're into that sticky uncomfortable range. the it could be worse, and it probably will be, thomas dew

5:47 am
southbound at cottman avenue right lane is block at the moment. we will see all those cars there. yeah, we are stack and pack for a while. all right. lets move on to check some speed on the pennsylvania turnpike, route 202, route 30, everybody moving along just fine, all green, we go and travel times from 422 to 202 it only takes you seven minutes from oaks to king of prussia and from on 202 to route 30 to the the schuylkill expressway it is only a 12 minute drive. now would be a good time to leave. >> montgomery county teen was disappointed whether he she signs up for a girl's golf tournament only to be told she was only one to sign up. organizers offered her an alternative as a fox 29 photo journalist bill roar shows it all played out in her favor.
