of this line. the heaviest is down by baltimore, and washington. so we're catching a break there with the intensity. we have some more that have regenerated back north of harrisburg. this is still north and west of our area. eventually that could have an effect here. this is the area that i'm a little more concerned about. because it's not moving that much. and as opposed to being severe, this could cause some flooding. right around nazareth, bushkill. look what's happened here, just in the last hour. there really isn't much of motion of this cell. everything else is moving, but this particular cell is not. and you can see here tagmore, cherry hill road getting very heavy rain. the slower this thing moves, the more rain is going to fall. and the greater the threat of
localized flooding in that area. the only warnings outside of our area now, out toward harrisburg. so as long as these storms continue to move, then we'll be okay. the strongest one, again, farther to the south. if they continue on the present track, 6:48 in wilmington, 7:00 in pennsville, and we'll talk more about what happens once these storms get out and the rest of the holiday forecast in a few minutes. >> our weather team will be tracking these storms for you throughout the night, bringing us updates on the air every 15 minutes. and they'll also send out weather alerts you need to know about on the nbc 10 app. a live look at the ben franklin bridge right now. with the holiday weekend on the horizon, drivers on the bridge could be paying more to fill up in the garden state by the time the fourth gets here. 23 cents a gallon more to be exact. a bill to raise new jersey's gas
tax is headed to the senate, after clearing the assembly early this morning. so let's say you have a 20-gallon tank. that means you could end up paying an extra $4.60 to fill up in new jersey. and it could happen as soon as friday. the extra money would go to fund road and bridge projects throughout the state. nbc 10's south jersey reporter sydney long is looking into the proposed increase and see what drivers think about it. they're not too happy, right? >> reporter: they're certainly not happy. they consider the 14.5 cents we're paying a tiny perk in a state full of high taxes. and some senators who have yet to vote on this measure, they're calling it a sneaky middle of the night deal. >> it's definitely not anything would be excited about. >> reporter: drivers say shelling out 23 cents more per gallon at the pumps will be costly. >> people already are having a hard time now.
even, you know, this is like a break for us. you know? to make it higher -- >> reporter: they're not pleased with the overnight deal governor chris christie struck with assembly lawmakers. >> not something i'm too excited about. you know, everybody has to get gas, especially for the holiday weekend. >> reporter: christie proposed a fairness package that would pay a sales tax by 2016. >> compared to other states, and what we pay per mile for road construction, is actually much higher. especially in the northeast. >> reporter: that's precisely why some snap republicans like allen of south jersey and jennifer beck want the public to weigh in. >> we are densely populated. we cannot always shut down our roadways during rush hour, or during high traffic areas in order to repair our roadways.
>> reporter: out-of-state drivers who add to the wear and tear on new jersey roads will pay extra at the pumps, too, like pennsylvania shoregoer, susan. >> i don't think it will have any effect on whether we come back or not. >> reporter: this gas station in gloucester township, the midway point between the city and shore, will certainly be packed come friday afternoon. diane allen told me by phone a short time agol?e it's complete up in the air whether the senate will rush to vote on the gas hike tax come thursday. she said, right now it's not on the agenda, and senate president sweeney did not return our calls today. sydney long, nbc 10 news. i want to go breaking news from live over philadelphia's bridesberg section. several vehicles have been involved in a crash on 95. this is in the northbound lanes at bridge street.

he coached an opposing team. we loved him because he coached ours. >> the wins, the losses, the statistics, don't come anyplace close to what buddy ryan was like. >> everybody loved buddy. good guy. shame to hear he passed. >> reporter: tim furlong, nbc 10 news. the eagles owner released a statement after ryan's passing that reads in part, buddy ryan was arguably one of the greatest defensive masterminds in nfl history and forever left his mark on the eagles organization and the city of philadelphia. for more on buddy ryan's life and legacy, tap the nbc 10 app. the chances of a holiday weekend walkout by thousands of atlantic city casino workers seems to be increasing right now. the president of the union said today the strike on friday is likely against at least one of the five gaming halls involved.
