but for now it is all good nice, quiet on storm scan, staying that way again throughout the day. likely to see not much more than a couple patchy cloud. thinks your 24 hour temperature change. everybody is at the surplus, pretty minimal one for many of you but enough that it does not feel quite as chilly as it has in recent mornings but your 7 degrees milder in trenton. in philadelphia it is four plus. as that translates to the thermometer we are now in the 50's here at our airports. forty-eight is temperature in mount pocono and 50 in atlantic city. wind is calm and will stay that way. another just picturesque day and that sunshine continues to be wall to wall right through weekend. perfect timing. even monday doesn't look bad at all n fact we should see more sun then anything initially but we will warm up to 78 degrees, and notice however that the cloud begin to make a return to these icon s because there is a front that will head our way bringing in the possibility of precipitation in the form of showers as early as monday night right now and then especially into tuesday and wednesday, it is looking pretty damp.
notice temperature drop off as well, deep trough, scheduled to drop in here, the movement of that is still something that need to be ironed out but regardless we expect that we will get wet weather out of it , showers, and steady rain, come tuesday or wednesday. meisha? >> enjoy it, wheel we have it. >> for sure. >> thanks, very much. very good morning to you, we are looking outside, just lots of construction, overall things are looking good. construction is clearing here schuylkill westbound between south street and vine, right lane compromise there had but crews are moving out of the way. off ramp to 30th street still close that had should lift around 5:00 a.m. i will confirm when it does. construction near blue route southbound off ramp to the schuylkill. you can see those canes and that the road are still light as we approach the 5:00 o'clock hour. disabled vehicle here that is why we have flashing light 95 north, this is pass past routed 413 near pennsylvania turnpike, pulled off to the far left. this is an area that is slowing down right now. but it is certainly can be an
