everyone is getting hit right now, it doesn't mean that you're out of the woods just yet, but at least you can see very discontinuing back edge as the system rotates away. give it time. it does appear as though we're actually going to see break in the wet weather in the cloud cover, too, and get some more sunshine as the day goes on. so it is the first half of the day that has to deal with wet weather as opposed to what we've experience in the recent days, or we did manage to get through most of our morning drives without any hitches here. we have to deal with the issues this morning, in the form of some localized but soaking downpours, out there. so while not everyone is going to get hit out of it you do have to watch out for it. come 11, 12:00 p.m. or so, at noontime in fact, going to see the flashflood go out of effect. >> continues to be the theme later tonight, as well. shaking out as it comes to the thermometer, look at this,
can't let this go by the wayside. finally breaking the heatwave with some p.m. sunshine, even still, going to hit 86 degrees at best. so we'll take that, it will be feeling little more comfortable in that regard. seventy-two the nighttime low tonight, clouds overhead, and our eyewitness weather seven day forecast, look at this, string of seasonable weather for a change, now, a lot of thunderstorm icons on the seven day, but looks as though everything we see in the next few days will be pretty scattered. meisha, over to you. >> katie, lot of rain and thunderstorms, don't tell me that is, i don't want that to be my future. good morning, everyone, guess what, it is friday, friyay, we'll all celebrate that. we talk about that the dnc closures, good points, all lifted that's great news, where one of the dnc closures is still in effect, ramps still closed northbound and southbound, but like i said, check point you are all clear. all the roads are closed still around the wells fargo center but guess what they are all
re-opening tonight. so all of the roads around the well fargo center like i said are opening tonight. soap, this is 995 south at washington. we saw some crews out there picking up construction, you can see they will still out there looking pretty quiet out there, i got to say. also 95 north at the platt bridge, one of the check point areas that's now clear. looking great. this has been one of the areas that have been looking so busy all week long, has been causing our commuters so many problems. we're looking really noise there right now. just as reminder for anyone taking the airport, taking air by travel today, you want to give yourself extra time. accident limerick, railroad street at main, make note. also one on 422 that has now all since been cleared. jim, over to you. >> thank you, so much, meisha. well, the moment a lot of people have eagerly been awaiting for has arrived in new york city. >> and it smells. i love the story, though. a corpse flower in bloom this morning at the new york bo pan call gardens, how long it will stay open for grave visitors

>> a soggy start to the lags day back to work, although, we are thankfully going to start to dry out later today. so sort of backwards from what we've experienced in recent days this week, regardless, it is pretty, again, soggy. i feel like that's going to be the descriptive words i use for this through the rest of the morning, look like this wet weather will be with us through the majority of the morning drive even headed toward the afternoon. but what a site to see, patriots i can colors over
liberty place here on such a historic time here in our city. but yes, it is a little marred by the clouds, and damp roadways. 75 degrees at philadelphia international airport. that's where that temperature observation is coming f wind out of the north, but not really going to in the too much of a drop in the humidity because of that, meantime, flood advisory has just been issued for the better part of the state of delaware here, even across the state border into maryland, that will last us for few more hours for again very heavy rain continues to push n you can see another batch of it, just waiting in the wings, set to push in to basically anywhere from the i95 corridor on south. that will also include philadelphia. so not out of the woods, just yet, even though there are few holes on the radar right now, where you are not seeing rain. other big story is the heatwave finally broken, can't bury that lead either. because at least it will feel little bit more comfortable, although we don't really lose the humidity, meisha, at least not talking mid to upper 90s this time. >> yes, absolutely, all right,
katie. thank you. i think a lot of the morning commuters will be very happy today. number one, it is friday. so you've got to be happy. two, dnc, they have left, and because of that, our checkpoints have lifted. this is great, thank you, thank you, i know, everyone home, too, yeah, clapping right along with us, what's going on right now? what you can see with the flashing light, one closure still out there. this is 95 at broad street, ramps still closed north and southbound, those will be lifting either midday or later on this evening, all roads are still closed around the wells fargo center but they are also lifting today as well, later this evening, as well. check point clear. restrict sons on vehicles over 5 tons with the check point, those are clear. schuylkill eastbound, off ramp to packer avenue, that closure also cleared. so a lot of great news, just keep in mind broad street is still lingering out there. here one of the check point areas. you can see the droplet on the camera lens, letting you know it is going to be wet this morning, probably busy because of it, 95 north at the platt bridge good, all week long this looked so busy because
those check point right now, it is looking just great. jim, over to you. >> good to hear, thanks, meisha. the corpse flower is now on display at the new york booth and that gardens. >> take a look at the bun gent flower getting a lot of attention, so smells like rotting meat or rotting fish. >> lovely. >> visitors heading to the bronx in roughly 100 degrees heat to get a whiff of the rare flower. the flower only stays open for 24-36 hours before it closes and goings dormant. >> it is not on my bucket list, but what the heck. coming up in the next hour of cbs-3 "eyewitness news", live on the campus of temple university with a preview of hillary clinton's first stop after excepting her party's nomination for president. >> and a little later we go behind the scenes of the new movie, back at the top of the hour.
