64 degrees. warming into the upper 80s. it's going to be a warm summer day. as the day goes on, the humidity will go lower and lower. 88 degrees for delaware. a little warmer in philadelphia and the suburbs. i'll go through the day hour by hour in a few minutes. let's see how the traffic is running on a tuesday. jessica boyington has the first alert traffic. >> thanks, bill. cameras around broad street where we have an accident scene. headed southbound. nothing too major right now. the accident scene is pushed over into the right hand shoulder. there are people walking around. penndot crews on the scene as well. we have two lanes getting by. no big delays or backups yet. we're watching 95 through delaware where there's no problems here. unlike the boulevard, we have great drive times. there's also construction over in delaware as well. the route 13 on ramp to 295 southbound is still closed.
that's been an ongoing project as well. the airport train 405 running about 14 minutes late. we're seeing a little bit of a ripple effect there. small delays since the first trains went off. nothing too major. everything 10 or 15-minute delays right now. we'll have more in the next ten. tracy? >> reporter: here in cleveland today is the day it becomes official. donald trump will get the official nod as the republican party's nominee. an effort on the floor to stop him failed yesterday. last night his wife talked about all the reasons her husband should be the nominee. what stood out for a lot of people were the similarities between what melania said last night here on this stage and what michelle obama said in 2008. take a listen. >> from a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want
in life. that your work is your bond. you do what you say and keep your promise. that you treat people with respect. >> barack and i were raised with so many of the same values. like you work hard for what you want in life. that your word is your bond. that you do what you say you're going to do. that you treat people with dignity and respect. >> mrs. trump said -- the campaign later pointing to the team of writers saying, quote, in writing a beautiful speech, melania's team of writers took notes on her like inspirations and in some instances included fragments that included her own thinking. donald trump said it was an honor to introduce my wife melania, her speech and demeanor were incredible. very proud. the speech focused on her
husband's strengths. >> i can tell you with certainty that my husband has been concerned about our country for as long as i have known him. with all of my heart, i know that he will make a great and lasting difference. donald has a great and deep and un -- determination and never give up attitude. >> now, before the questions arose about the speech, i spoke to our local delegates about their reaction to what she had to say on the stage. >> i loved it. i thought she did an excellent job. she helped define herself. we needed to know more about her. she also defined her relationship with donald and the candidate and more about his background and also as a family leader. to have somebody on the other side basically say, look, this is how we got together and this is my back story, again, it
creates that personal connection that's different than we're going to make america great again. >> reporter: and the delegates told me they're looking forward to the day when donald trump is expected to formally get the republican nomination. let's talk about how it happens. today there will be a roll call that makes trump the official nominee. tonight donald trump jr. and tiffany trump will speak and ben carson and new jersey governor chris christie. we spoke about christie about the people who signed a pledge to support whoever became the nominee and are not here at the convention. >> anybody who signed that pledge and is not here is breaking their word to the people of our party and the american people. that's just wrong. >> reporter: governor christie wouldn't comment when asked if he saw a role for himself in the administration. he says his focus is helping his candidate win the election. you can hear more from him on
the "today" show. also donald trump will be on the "today" show this morning. >> was it surreal to finally be here? we've talked about this week for so long. is it surreal to be here? >> it's a great feeling. it's a great accomplishment. a real accomplishment. you know what it is to make america great again. it's why i'm doing it. it's a lot of work. it's a lot of activity. but i will say you see that all. you see the enthusiasm they have. they want to see something happen. make america great and safe again. >> you can see the interview on the "today" show starting at 7:00 a.m. matt lauer and savannah guthrie broadcasting live from cleveland. coming up at 5:45, i'll give you a behind-the-scenes look. i will pull away the curtain and show you what everyone around here has to go through in terms of -- to get into the q. keith, back to you. >> tracy, thank you so much.
social media, your posts and all of you guys are there. complete coverage from the rnc. we have a team of reporters. you can stay on top of the reports using the nbc 10 app. >> trees and power lines knocked down, homes down. pamela osborn live in havertown, delaware county. hafr down, one of the hardest hit areas. at least 3500 customers are still without power at this time. i want to show you where i'm standing right now. virginia avenue seems to be the divide on this side of the street. people have power but over on this side of the street. this is part of the reason why. trees went down yesterday during that storm yesterday like this one here at roosevelt avenue. some of the trees fell on top of power lines causing outages. at this time about 27 outages
remained but that was not all. we sent sky force 10 out to get a scope of the damage. white hall township, lehigh county, we found one house that lost its roof in the storm. on the ground, we encountered a lot of people cleaning up. over at swiss farms, a 40-year-old silo crumbled to the ground. >> 40 feet tall. and it fell in about 20 seconds. so we had some straight-line winds coming. after the winds subsided, it was so thick that you could barely see the building from another building. as soon as the winds went away, when you looked the building was down. >> it's going to cost about $100,000 to replace that silo. but fortunately no one was hurt and after taking a good look at the neighborhood, it's only a matter of time before people start cleaning up here as well. i can tell you some tree cutters just arrived. they have been serving this
neighborhood, some of the damage here as well. certainly a lot of cleaning up to do today. reporting live in havertown, i'm pamela osborn, nbc 10 news. pamela, thank you. police in baton rouge called the shooting that killed the police officers an assassination. he was clearly targeting law enforcement. the former marine was carrying two rifles and a handgun as he snuck up behind three officers and shot them at close range killing them. he shot several more before s.w.a.t. teams killed him. in a youtube video, he advocated violence following the shootings of officer sterling in baton rouge. skies are clearing out and the wind has shifted. that's a northwesterly wind. that's dry air coming into play. that's going to keep the feels-like temperature equal to the actual temperature. that's a sign of lower humidity. it will warm into the upper 80s
this afternoon. it will feel more comfortable today. 73 degrees in philadelphia. bright sunshine, low 80s at 10:00 this 340r7k morning. then it's into the 80s as the day goes on. look at the winds at 8 miles an hour. you'll see the same in the lehigh valley. skies are clearing out now. might see a little bit of fog to start with. as the temperatures climbs into the 80s, the fog will be long gone by mid-morning. new jersey, sunshine, 72 degrees right now. 81 degrees at 10:00. and then into the upper 80s in new jersey. and at the shore. because those are northwesterly winds. that's a land breeze. not a sea breeze. 84 degrees for new jersey this afternoon. you'll feel that warmer day today. for delaware, you'll see clear skies, sunshine, 80 degrees at 10:00. into the middle 80s, a dry air flowing in by noontime and 87 degrees this afternoon. that's today. there's your seven-day. i have your ten-day outlook when i'm back. 5:42 right now.

here. you have to go through a perimeter, get your car checked. where we parked is relatively close to the q. between the convention center. it's a work space for us. you have to see -- everyone here has to go through security before we get here. we have to plan a lot of time in our day to get through that. >> tracy, i know this is a -- democratic national convention, day one. action-packed. looking ahead today, i know dr. ben carson, governor chris christie. paul ryan and the nra. you've been in contact with the local delegates. any idea what's in store? >> well, very excited. all of them are excited to hear the speakers. including how this is a colorful list of speakers. there is one delegate from bucks county is who excited to hear them talk. because he's into mixed martial arts. >> we talk about round the clock coverage. we have round the clock coverage
