saw the rain coming down in the area of toms river eastern ocean county and we're talking about flash flooding you saw those amazing pictures. so as far as the amounts are concerned, we're talking about a bulls eye of about 4-inches around seaside heights where you see the yellow near seaside park about 3.5-inches of rain. some of these amazeing totals island heights thee .74. over 3-inches in toms river and even towards seaside heights two to 4-inches of rain this is what actually happened. there was a sea breeze that set up. that's when you have that cooler ocean water pushes inland in this particular area it didn't move as far inland as further shore points a little bit further south like atlantic city and sea isle city a front is created and along that front you get some rising air. the air rises on the land. we form clouds. and of course, those clouds create some rain showers. and the heavy rain just keeps going over that location over and over again.
you have that more stable sea air moving inland but it heads into this warm riseing air and you get the rain unget the flooding and unfortunately it was right over eastern ocean county today and farther down the road in sea isle see where i was we just had a cool afternoon with some sunshine. so unfortunately it was a tough call in ocean county this afternoon. it will not happen again tomorrow. that's for sure. right now temperatures are cooling down in the 60s. wee wake up to 69 in philadelphia. in the poconos wake up to 54 as lower humidity moves into the region overnight. that will stabilize the air from the city to the shore. so we aren't expecting anything in the way of flooding or storms tomorrow. we can see some storms over the weekend. we'll talk more about that with the seven day later in the broadcast. jess. >> kathy, thank you. fire destroyed a house in upper providence montgomery county tonight. this is eyewitness cam video of the flames engulfing the second floor an the roof. officials say the fire on patriot drive started just

this is an issue "eyewitness news" has been following now for some time. a source provided "eyewitness news" with this video after the brakes on engine 45 went out on saturday. the sources tell us the truck's driver had to use the emergency brake to slow it down. in that memo, union officials recommend that firefighters leave significantly more space between their emergency vehicle and civilian vehicles. and that they begin to apply the brakes earlier than they normally would. >> the condition of the neat has never been this bad. we really need a comprehensive apparatus replace many plan put into effect and then work over the next few years to implement the system and upgrade our fleet on a continual basis. >> we reached out to the city of philadelphia today but did not receive a request for comment. the fbi is reportedly investigateing who knew what and when about surgical tool suspected of spreading undetect undetected cancer in women.
authorities are looking into whether medical device makers doctors and hospitals broke the law by failing to report problems linked to that device. they've been tied to several deaths now and also to injuries. the device works by shredding fibroid tumors so they can be easily removed. but in some patients the sledding ended up spreading cancer that hadn't been detect detected. our stephanie stahl talked with amy read she has six children and a deadly cancer that she and her husband say was caused by a more sill later they say should have never been used. >> your situation might have been prevented? >> not only mine but hundreds of other women and that's what's so maddening. >> the fbi will not confirm or deny an investigation. with this summer like weather it is the season for sunscreen. we all know that whether you're at the beach or in the backyard doctors say we should be wearing when it we're outside. tonight health reporter stephanie stahl has the top
three things to know when it comes to sunscreen. >> reporter: there are dozens to choose from. so how do you pick the right sunscreen? tip number one carefully read the labels. go for an spf that's sun protection factor of 30 or above above. also, water resistant and broad spectrum. that guards against uva and uvb rays. it doesn't need to be expensive. recent testing from consumer reports found even the bargain brands worked great. tip number two if you use spray sunscreen, be careful. you can't always tell if your skin covered. so after you spray it on, be sure to rub it in or you can spray night your hand and then rub it on to your skin. there's some reasons though why you might not want to use spray sunscreen at all. >> because it's vapor arrived and you can inhale it. we're particularly concerned about children inhaling the vapors. >> susan taylor is a philadelphia dermatologist she says the sprays are flammable. whether it's on your skin or coming out of the can.
>> any aerosol is flammable. so when exposed to heat and to flames it could catch fire. >> tip number three don't skimp. mack sure all your skin is covered. we lotion you should use 2 tablespoons for your face and body. that's equal to a full shot glass. don't wait until you get to the beach and pull it out and put it on. put it on 15 to 20 minutes before you go outside. >> reporter: once you're in the sun be sure to reapply at least every two hours. more often if you're sweaty or in out of the water. because nothing ruins summer fun faster than a sunburn. stephanie stahl cbs3 "eyewitness news". >> nobody wants a sunburn. >> no fun best piece of advice use it. you got to do it. >> you do have to do it. >> we'll need it over the next few days. >> uv index will be quite high. we'll get to that but first take look outside. where skies are clearing and the air is drying out. so that humidity is going to continue to fall. down the shore still a little
sticky our camera in atlantic city a little bit hazy a little bit foggy tonight but that will change overnight. on storm scan3 we don't have any storms but we're scanning for the dry air and you can see that green color that is the drier air beginning to move in through central pa and working its way toward the east. so slowly but surely that more humid air that's highlighted in yellow and oranges will be replaced by the drier air and boy will that feel different overnight tonight and even the during day tomorrow. temperature is 78 in philadelphia. 69 in allentown. 50s in the poconos. very comfortable. quakertown 72 the same in willow grove. pal my rah still at 77 but the dew point is what's important here. you can tell where our cold front is already moved through because the dew points have lowered. dew point is the true amount of moisture in the atmosphere no matter what the temperature is. relative humidity is relative to the temperature. this isn't. when you see dew points in the 50s, that is very comfortable and pleasant so in allentown the door .51.
still in the 60s philadelphia south and east. 72 in dover that's oppressive. but you'll see that drier air move to the south and by tomorrow morning katie fehlinger will show you dew points in the 50s even in philadelphia during our morning newscast. that's the good news. tomorrow lower humidity. lots of sun. temperatures in the 80s. feeling much more comfortable than it did today. but sticky air moves back by saturday. it will be squeezed up the coastal plane ahead of that cold front then the front will be moving through on sunday that is our next chance of showers and storms especially in the afternoon. if you're going down the shore i think you'll get most of the day in before shows storms move into the region. overnight we'll be seeing any weather threat as far as rain will wayne and see overnight lows around 69 with clearing skies. tomorrow the high 84 with less humid conditions northeasterly wind. pollen report shows we'll be moderate tomorrow, saturday on the high side and sunday we'll be low with the rain. hour by hour pack the sunscreen because it is going to be hot
and the sun will be out all day even during the dinner hour temperatures in the 80s. on the exclusive "eyewitness weather" seven day forecast and shore cast pack the sunscreen friday. not so much sunday. june begins the high on monday only 65 with rain and then tuesday, wednesday and thursday we see the warmup. >> big way. >> kathy thanks. >> leasely is here with all the eagles news you could possibly handle. >> waiting and waiting and final finally get see the new look eagles on the practice field and chip kelly finally respond to go lesean mccoy's comments about how race played a part in personnel decisions. sports is next.

fastest. today chip addressed those remarks head on. >> i've got great respect for lesean. um however in that situation i think he's wrong. you know, we put a lot of time in looking at the characters and factor that is go into selection and retention of players and color has never been one of them them. >> you start chasing perception and you got a long life ahead of you, son. that's what it's all about. if you're worried about someone's perception of what's going on with you you control one thing you control yourself. >> form her heisman trophy winner and much thinner tim tebow in act. he was signed one-year contract in april. competing against mark barkley to be the third string quarterback. tim has been out of football for two years and he's grateful for the opportunity. >> i think about it as what a blessing great opportunity. work extremely hard every day trying to be the best teammate i can, be the best player. make everybody else around me try to make them better as well and all of us are just trying to improve. >> sam bradford was at practice but limited participant still
recovering from his second acl tear. he's able to participate in individual drills not not take part in team drills. the rehab is tough but he's still on the schedule to be in the line up for the season opener. >> it's taken a little longer the second time around. i think i told you guys when i first got here, from everyone i talked to they say that's normal normal. that's what to expect. i think it has gotten in the past two months, month and a half. as long as it continues to do that it should be no issue. >> mathis once again not at the novacare complex. he wants a new contract or to be trade chip kelly has not talked to evan since the off season program started over a month ago. we'll be right back.
