the lehigh valley, it's 51 degrees. delaware, some breaks in the clouds, 50 degrees but that won't last. you'll see limited sunshine disappear as the day goes on. cloudy skies across delaware and south jersey. the temperatures, well, in south jersey, 49 degrees right now. really not much cooler anywhere but there are a couple spots in the 50s. 50 degrees in turnersville and mt. laurel also at 50 degrees. seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. we'll go through the futurecast hour by hour to show you when you'll likely see rain return during the day today. back in ten minutes. jessica boyington is watching some of those newly cleaned cars. jessie? >> that's right, bill. we are watching some of them being stuck around the philadelphia area because of some traffic lights that are malfunctioning around 26th street and penrose avenue. still approaching the platt bridge if you're heading out the door, you may see backups there. police officers there directing traffic around the scene at one point. right now it's clear.

>> good morning, republican donald trump took indiana with 53% of the vote. after trump's divisive win, the rnc chairman tweeted that trump will be the presumptive gop nominee. he said we need to unite to focus on defeating hillary clinton. >> we gave it everything we've got. but the voters chose another path. we are suspending our campaign. >> you may remember governor john kasich and cruz agreed to join forces to defeat trump just last week. his camp says they're not giving up. a spokesperson with his campaign tweeted directly to the rnc chairman saying they appreciate his hard work for the gop but until someone has 1,237 bound delegates, there is no presumptive nominee. the end of that next week in
california, here we come. trump praised cruz for taking that step. >> ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me or doesn't like me but he is one hell of i competitor. he is a tough, smart guy. now to the democrats. bernie sanders thanked people of indiana for giving him what he called a great upset victory. he beat hillary clinton by 5 percentage points. hillary clinton used the indiana results to appeal to donors. she tweeted donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee. chip in now if we agree that we can't let him become president. trump and clinton are zeroing in on their party's nominations. both candidates have commanding delegate leads. sanders win added to his delegate total but the vermont senator is close to 800 behind clinton. trump's victory in indiana catapulted his delegate count north of 1,000 and has him less than 200 delegates away from the nomination.
