12:19 pm
mobile weather watcher this coming monday at 6:30 a.m., but, i will tell you this month that there are a the nicest leather smell. ahh, isn't that a beauty. there she go into our loading dock right into the garage, and again, we're going to officially debut this, baby at 6:30 this morning, and we will give you a much better idea of what she can do and show you bells, whistles and let me tell you there are bells and whistles with this very, very impressive vehicle. so excited. can you tell i'm excited to start to get to use this thing but official debut coming up, don't miss it 6:30 a.m. this monday morning but that is just a little sneak peak of what we are looking ahead to. with that, we have some weather to track in the next couple of days. it is looking on the unsettled side, guys. lets go take a look what is happening on storm scan regional zoom right now. we have had steady rain that
12:20 pm
held through earlier in the day for the most part that has begun to clear. we have a thick cloud deck but that sunnies peeking through. we will zoom out to the wider shot and there is heaviest rain back toward oklahoma, kansas area, that low pressure developing on the tail end of this system. now later on today we are going to end up with renewt possibility for shower or thunderstorm. that is where severe weather threat comes in. lowest threat marginal on the proverbial totem pole with the storm prediction center categories but there could be a locally gusty thunderstorm firing up this afternoon or toward evening. now meanwhile as we take you to completely different neck of the wood we will get out to the tropics and we do still have, a named system to talk about. it had been tropical storm arlene at this point though downgraded to post tropical cyclone arlene but what is interesting it is only april, the further north we have ever seen development this early on of a name storm system and
12:21 pm
only second april storm that has been named, since the satellite era began. so pretty big deal we have arlene out there thankfully in threat to land, here in north america certainly let loan anywhere else. lets bring it back stateside and looking at current conditions, walking out the door would i suggest a light jacket. currently in the lower 60's in atlantic city. very light win. barely notice it. but a thick cloud deck. rest of the day as long as these cloud break apart we should maryland rate up to about 71 degrees, but again with a pretty modest win flow all and all. looking ahead to the phillies game tonight we will be mid 60 's for first pitch but again with that possibility of the shower or even a rumble of thunder, maybe gusty storm at that you do have to keep an eye to the sky but i still think they will play. we have a lot of other spring games, penn state, blue/white game coming up, out at state college. we have cherry and white game here in philly at link and if you think there could be an isolated shower but just a lot
12:22 pm
of cloud overhead at the link tomorrow. but lets go one more time to your seven day forecast and give you a sense of how this weekend and early next week shakes out. we have got the system that moves in, guys and it will just hang out for a couple days. temperatures are consistent. tomorrow spotty shower, absolute worse and then we will jump to it sunday best shot for showers goes to the southern half of the region. come monday, we will end up with some showers, and very likely that lead into tuesday as well. it is a pattern for us here moving forward, but eventually , we should start to warm up very nicely, i'm calling for 80's by next mid week. jim and jan it will take a while to get that to that point again but just keep your umbrella at ready for next couple days. >> good advice, thanks, thanks for showing is first look at mobil weather watcher, we cannot wait to see what it can do monday morning. i guess i'll be watching because i'll be here. >> don't you just love that new car smell. >> yes, yes.
