we? >> no, yesterday was unbelievable to find that day in december, it was just such a gift. i want to show you the very first light of the this morning. look at this this is cape may courthouse. you can see just a sliver of light, the sunnies starting to wake up, temperature of 47 degrees, so this is a very mild start to the day, and finish will be finish, not as mild as yesterday but we will still probably be able to get in the 50's. temperatures are in the 40's right now in every single location. yesterday morning you might have been out with the ice scraper, i know i was but not to day, look at this these temperatures 41 in the poconos. forty-one in allentown. forty-seven in wildwood. very mild start. we don't go that much higher, we will get in the lower 50's maybe to the north you will stop in the upper 40's but this isn't bad at all. forty-two in pottstown. forty-four willow grove. doylestown 42. lovely county seat of burlington county, mount holly, 42 degrees. storm scan three, we have a
couple of impulses that come by. one comes by this morning. we will get a break. there is another one in kentucky but it will come by here this a afternoon along with the front moving on through, slowly, i think that the second half of the day your a's more likely to find these showers in the southern half of our viewing area verse the northern half where we're finding a lot of them. they are scattered in every location but i'll tell you that is pretty light whatever you are seeing out there and a lot of people are not seeing anything. a little break coming up, afternoon showers, evening shower, and then that system will pull away. i will show thaw on our computer model. cold front coming through here and temperatures do drop. this is the warmest it will be for the the rest of the year as i said doesn't go that much longer anyway but into the 50's today and then in the 40's and then the 30's for highs coming up after that. future rainfall amount computer models say don't worry about it just a .01 of an inch here. you could pick up a tenth of
an inch. in the right locations maybe a quarter inch but it looks like this has limited moisture to work with. traveling, i know everybody at least a lot of people are trying to get home. these are current airport delays. we are finding in of these select airports. i will get out of the way so you can see towns we're talking about. so not a big deal getting out there today at least at this point in the morning. now if you are driving, the same thing it is not that much of a problem. we have had some cloud, notice i mention that had break. here it is at the 10:00 in the morning we will see the break. i mentioned kentucky. you will see that moisture streaming over from there. by the time we get to this evening we have got some showers through delaware. maybe finding them along the coastal area we will see them running along the coast second central delaware, point south of that. that is right through tomorrow morning at 4:00 o'clock. we will clear out or we should clear out and get sun and clouds tomorrow and then by the time we will get to tuesday things not looking that bad but we have cooled
down. you can tell that by these streamers coming off of the great lakes with the snow shower. otherwise today 51. philadelphia shore, 50. poconos 45 degrees. we will get some clouds, and you better have your jackets ready for new years eve temperature of 28 degrees but it will be dry. it looks like a great kick off to 2015. not that bad on the wind today. northwest, between five and 10 miles an hour. 38 degrees for our temperature tonight. just a chance of still hanging on to a shower especially areas south. and then over next couple days notice the drop in temperatures. we will go down in the 30's for high temperatures over the next couple of days nicole. >> all right carol thank you. lets see at 6:47 let check on the road with ann evans in the cbs-3 traffic center. good morning ann. >> good morning, nicole. we have some construction to tell but this morning on i-95 what you are looking at southbound between bridge street and cottman avenue. no delays despite the construction there this morning. the highway of course
