start things offer by tack ago look back at the callen of of march 2017, will go down as cooler than average month. yesterday was warmer than average. today will also be warmer than average. in fact we will easily hit that mark, that benchmark sometime this morning, i think. but regardless, even though it certainly is turning milder every passing day, we will still end up with a below average, compared to the rest of the most recent months here, in general. now, let's take a look at storm scan locally. had couple every thunderstorms rumbling through as i mentioned, in the the one moved right over mercer county around 3:00 a.m. actually just sent back report from the national weather service, pea size hail. some thunderstorms will be feisty out there today. i definitely would keep your umbrella handy even though not much to track right now. dew point are incredibly high. they're basically right on par with the actual air temperature. that means, the air is really saturated. and you're going to get drenched if you're caught un one of the pockets here. but come through in scattered
fashion. pretty much any time today. talk about the dew point, yes, looking for the thermometer reading pretty much look at the dew point now. this is about how warm it is, but his also means that the closer that dew point gets to the actual air temperature, you have got so much moisture pushing down on this atmosphere, and that's where some of the fog is coming from, also why you're drenched many looking ahead at future weather, every couple of hours you see another little light round of scattered showers and storms coming through, i say light because it is light in terms of its coverage. not necessarily light in terms of its actual inch tepees density. rain could drench you, could be some strong winds out of this, possibly some small size hail. we certainly have already seen that as evidence with the last cell rumbling through mercer county. do eventually clear things out. at least start to clear things out through the overnight. now, here is the thing. i actually ended up bringing us back to 64 degrees at best today. the reason, east wind. that's on shore wind flow. that's going to bring more clouds in. that's going to keep that cooler air in place. so i think that's going toned up limiting us. sixty-four, still above
average, though, but scattered showers, thunderstorms, still out there, as we mention, that will be the story even into tonight. then we look forward to some quiet weather for couple of days, high pressure allows us to brighten up tomorrow. mid 50's, beautiful day, but new storm already here on friday. meisha? >> yikes. so we cannot forget our umbrella, ever. good morning, everyone, hey, what are we looking at here? take a look, we are talking visibilities. so jim and rahel, we are pushing in the westbound direction. what am i drawing? center city. this is what road are you traveling on, westbound direction, into the sit, kind of wraps like that. >> the schuylkill? >> no. ben franklin bridge. hello. >> obviously. >> well, obviously. so there this is the ben franklin bridge, visible issues, because dealing with it again yesterday. dealing with it again today. then this is the schuylkill. this is what jim and rahel were chanelling, the schuylkill headlights moving in the eastbound direction at king of prussia. we can see both moving in both directions, starting to heat up levels right now.
