an unsettled day with some showers through the morning, especially, very scattered in fashion, you can see that already. and then also couple of thunderstorms, as the cold front with this system moves through into the afternoon. so i think generally after lunchtime, we will see couple of those sort of popcorn style thunderstorms popping up on the radar, again, very scattered, no severe threats this time, though you could see brief but heavy downpour, maybe little gusty winds with any storms that develop. temperature change in the last 24 hours, is definitely substantial. the only spot where you have got a deficit is in millville. everyone else has evening out at least generally ten plus degrees here since last time, last night this same time. but taking a look at the actual temperature, off to warm start here, 60 already, so we will have no problems hitting the mid 70s here today. it is quite a trade off. certainly with showers and thunderstorms, but not expecting a wash out. that's some good news. if you really want to get in your outdoor plans i think you can. keep an eye to the sky. >> absolutely great advice. thanks so much, katie. good morning, everyone, so yes, we are talking about the
