umbrella this morning? >> yes, you know, probably good idea to have it on stand by for the next week? unfortunately. really looking at very un settle pattern in the days ahead, summer lie, not wash out, but it is going to be a couple of days here wherever single day has a real good shot at producing shower or storm. big reason i suggest keeping the umbrella on hand is that this air mass that we find ourselves in the midst of is so moisture rich. anything that falls from the sky will likely be in the form of a pretty heavy downpour at times. so, let's go on out to storm scan3, explain what's going on here. there you have it. pretty heavy rain specially up across northern new jersey, thankfully little more out of our hair at this point, there are these pockets, regardless, around the region, generally south of i-95 where you have the most in terms of widespread coverage. pockets of heavier rain rolling on through, not so much in the way of thunderstorms, although could you hear rumble every thunder there is area of low pressure currently moving through is actually weakening as it moves out. sixty-nine is the current temperature meanwhile in
dover, atlantic city at 69 degrees, so definitely mild, and i can tell from my own personal experience right now here in the cbs-3 skydeck, also very muggy outside. so an indication of the moisture thereto work with. sixty-three currently in quakertown, into the 60s essentially here across the board. you got to go up to the poconos if you want anything cooler than that. kind of clammy up that way. meanwhile here is how the day shakes out. gradually add couple of degrees to the thermometer with every passing hour, so much so, we ends up hitting about 80 before it is said and done. i think we'll see at lows little sunshine, but it will be one of those days where it is kind of hit and miss off and on, clouds, little sunshine, showers, storms, nothing severe thank goodness, but right on cue the wind kicks n unsettled start to the week. most of the week looks like it will stay much the say same. bob, over to you. >> 5:05, so far yucky start on all of the major roadways here, some roads wet, some seeing steady rain, so the wipers getting work out this monday. live look at the blue route, 476, you can see the glare in the road surface, and the
