that's just formed within the last hour. a lot of sunshine out there. it's more of a hazy sunshine now. 83 degrees. the humidity is relatively high and relatively no wind. so, kind of sticky out there. it's in the 80s, low to mid-80s across the area. 83 in philadelphia. not quite as warm as it was at this time yesterday. that's because we had the low clouds and some fog earlier today. let's see what the differences are from the inland areas to the shore. cape may airport is 86 but it's 78 degrees at cape may harbor, closer to the ocean. north wildwood, 81. sea isle city, 81. in atlantic county, 79. well into the 80s inland. that temperature difference is just going to get bigger as we go through the afternoon. closest showers are still pretty
far away to the west but gives you an idea there is a little more moisture that's going to be approaching here. not so much during the day today or tonight but starting tomorrow we'll get more showers in the vicinity. we still have the general southerly flow keeping moisture in here, keeping the humidity high and keeping the sea breeze at the shore. then as we go into tomorrow, perhaps a few more showers around the area. we still may see most of this rain-free tomorrow, but the chances keep going up. by thursday and friday, there's a pretty high likelihood that there's going to be some rain around. this is high likelihood of becoming a tropical storm. it's a long, long way pa way. caribbean islands. the eastern caribbean is even far away from this thing. you can see the spin that's developed as tropical depression, 35-mile-an-hour winds moving west at 13 miles an
hour. what's interesting here, at least to me, is that the computer models are all suggesting it will continue to move to the west over the next five days or so. but the question is really going to be how much it's going to strengthen, if it will? we have a big difference between what some of the models are saying. this is the official practical from the nark hurricane center, which strengthens it into a category 2 hurricane with 100-mile-an-hour winds as it's approaching the eastern caribbean. but some of our other computer models are suggesting that it it really doesn't develop very much over the next week. there have been a lot of hostile conditions in the atlantic. too much dry air, too much wind higher up, the pressures of the atmosphere too high. just a lot of things going against tropical development this season because of the super el nino out in the pacific.
hazy sunshine, hot and humid today. probably no showers. temperatures into the low 90s. different story starting tomorrow. a little more cloud kor. better chance for showers. you're 90s so we could extend the heat wave another day. that will be a close call. i think on thursday that will be enough clouds around, showers around, to keep the temperature down below 90 degrees. the humidity's going to stay. it's going to stay humid. not only through the rest of the week but into the weekend with some shower chances continuing.
