soap, very warm weather is our story for the next couple of days. right through sunday. we'll at least flirt with 90 or hit it. so that means, the heat index values are above 90. when you factor in the kind of humidity we are talking about here, make sure you are taking care of yourself. avoid strenuous activity at the height of the afternoon, if you want it get your jog in, do it now, before it gets too terribly hot. but we expect more sun than anything here today. now, later this afternoon, and evening, there will likely be shower or thunderstorm that fires up. but primarily it looks like that will happen west or north of philadelphia, so, through the shore towns, through the delaware beach areas, it looks like a pretty awesome day at this . and i know a lot of people are already taking advantage of the fact that we've got it great weather, it looks like i won't be shock if we see those beaches packed later on this afternoon. for now, though, this is a trend that's set to continue. by the time we hit memorial day monday, notice that little bar does drop off a little bit. but we should still top off at least in the low 80s, and coming up, later in the show, we will talk about why that
drop is taking place, in short, meisha tropical action, more details later job that will be good to know, thanks so much. now, we have dry roadways this morning, but you wouldn't know it by how many things we've got going on the roadways, it started even as early in the 4 hour. so what we are being looking at, the schuylkill, near montgomery drive, two right lanes, wet out there, so we cannot see it. before it was dark and hard to see. we had drivers casino every pull over last minute to the left. right now two right lanes block. you can see the squad cars out, there trying to get this remedied for you, actually the exit ramp off to montgomery drive, you can just swing around this, then continue to exit, so the exit, just know, that's still out there. also, a fully engulfed truck fire, pa turnpike eastbound, before delaware vale, or exit 358, all lanes blocked. they are diverting traffic right now at delaware valley exit. one westbound lane is also blocked, as we're trying to get crews in there, get this cleared out of your way. >> this will affect people
driving into new jersey and i would suggest taking the burlington bristol bridge from there. just know this is going on out there right now. you will have to be diverted so just that's going to slow you down as we push deeper into the five and specially into the 6 hour. also, downed pole in mercer county new jersey all coming up in about ten minutes, nicole, over to you. >> president obama is on historic visit this morning to hiroshima. it is the first ever by a sitting us president, and it comes 70 years after the us drops atomic bomb on the city during world war ii. >> cbs news correspondent weijia jiang live in hiroshima where the president just attended a very special ceremony. weijia, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, to you, brooke and nicole, and good morning to everybody, it was a solemn ceremony here as you mentioned, a visit that was 71 years in the making. the japanese prime minister accompanied the president, show of friendship between the only country to ever use atomic bomb, and the only
nation to ever suffer from one. together they walk a fine line, making history, without opening old wounds. >> president obama's solemn visit comes 7 decades after the us desomated the city with an atomic bomb, as expected the president did not apologize for the incident, instead he trusted strong bond between the us and japan, two nations, once at war. >> it is a testament to how even the most painful device can be bridged. >> president obama later joined japan's prime minister, aba at peace memorial park to honor more than one hundred thousand people who died in the blast. 88 year old survived with radiation burns to his entire body, rather than dwell on the destruction, he is focused on the path ahead. i didn't think the city could be rebuilt so quickly, he says, it is wonderful. the 30 acre park complete with
its stunning granite archway served as constant reminder of the toll of war. american visitor jose says it is now up to the u.s. to spread a message every peace. >> we as americans in particular have a responsibility to show the world that we are going forward. >> president obama acknowledged looming concerns over north korea's nuclear ambitions, he says, he's working with china and other world leaders to address the threat, a sign the international community is learning lessons from the past. and in the weeks leading up to this trip, there was an ongoing conversation in both countries about whether president obama should apologize for the attack. we spoke with several survivors who said that's not what they wanted. what they really wanted was for him to commit to continue working, to prevent another attack. nicole, brooke? >> all right, weijia jiang, thanks so much. the time now 5 37.

a named system it, will become bonnie regardless, i don't think this will be a major concern for us. but, by monday it, could really jack up our chances to see more widespread rain, and certainly, it will feel awfully humid. meantime, we do have just a general risk, very minor risk, for thunderstorms throughout the afternoon and evening, especially northwest of philadelphia, especially, again, later on today. heavy downpours possible with that. maybe some gusty wind.
