4:18 pm
little bit below average for the temperature, but at least the wind has died down. sunny and warmer tomorrow, high temperatures getting into the 70s. low to mid 70s, little bit above average, but look at the wind, only 5 to 10 miles an hour and the direction from the northwest, that allows the ocean to calm down. it's been a long time since we've seen anything but a wind off the ocean. then on wednesday, we're even warmer, up to 77, weak front comes through, cools us down a bit, but we get lots of nice sunshine on thursday. there's another front coming through on friday. that's our best chance of showers during the next week and over next weekend it looks pretty cool on saturday, but looks like a pretty nice weekend, nice and comfortable. a woman who abducted a 5-year-old girl from a philadelphia school will spend 40 years in prison. she was caught on surveillance video leading the child out of her school in cobbs creek two years ago. a jury last year convicted her
