philadelphia, dew point still showing slightly humid air and the wind is off the east-northeast at 11 miles per hour. it's part of the reason why we have the cloud cover, it's milder where there is cloud cover. generally speaking a bit on the cool side and breezy, one twitter follower says it's refreshing and i kind of agree with that, whether or not we get a lot of rain today is definitely in question. future tracker 6 it doesn't look like there say whole lot and there could be thinning of the clouds and that raises the numbers into the low 70s, in the evening hours the clouds want to fill in a little more. notice in the see consequence i showed you, the storms try to form and unstable air to the west of us, they have a tendency to fall apart and we allow for a sprinkle or shower and an odd rumble of thunder, 70 degrees
and lots of clouds, allow for a spotty shower in allentown, and at the shore, a bit on the cool side and 65 in the water off atlantic city right now and on the beach 70 and that means 60s most of the time and lots of clouds with the potential of sunny breaks throughout the day and through the evening, 72 degrees and a spotty shower in philadelphia, if we don't manage to thin out the clouds a bit this afternoon. we may drop below this and the clouds really break for an hour or so. we could go above. i think low 70s is a pretty good bet. 66 and we'll allow for a spotty storm or shower, most of are you probably dry tonight. for the evening commute, same story and most neighborhoods are mainly dry and 72 by 4:00 and 71 by 5:30 and slipping into the upper 60s by about 7:00 and that is what you can expect down at
the ballpark font for the phillies too. lots of clouds and a spotty shower and the phillies will get the game in and tomorrow the warm front come tluz and we are up to 81 for a high and it's humid and a chance of showers or a thunderstorm in the afternoon and in some cases a drenching downpour is possible. we get showers and thunderstorms, a warm high of 83, muggy and some of those thunderstorms could be drenchers on friday as well. father's day is looking good, 84 and sunny. >> thank you david. that will do it for "action news" at noon, don't forget "action news" at 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00. now for david murphy, rick williams and the entire "action news" team have a great afternoon.
