>> good morning, tracy. thanks for joining us. it's 4:00 a.m. on your wednesday. we'll check right back in with tracy in just a moment. first, it's shaping up to be another really nice day outside. it's refreshing outside this morning. meteorologist bill henley is here with his first alert neighborhood forecast. am i right, bill? >> you're absolutely right. most areas are going to see plenty of sunshine and low humidity. watching one area for showers, south jersey this morning and southern delaware. cape may is dry. we've seen lightning in the distance. here's why. that's a thunderstorm that's rolling right past vineland at this hour. it's moving to the southeast. quick-moving downpours with that storm. it's not going to it be an all-day rainfall by any means. clear skies in the lehigh valley, shaping up to be a pleasant one for most of delaware, philadelphia and the suburbs. we'll go from the 60s and 70s into 80s. we won't see any 90s today. we'll go through the forecast hour by hour when i'm back in just a few minutes. first, let's check in with jessica boyington see how the
roads are shaping up on a thursday morning. >> we're starting off in egg harbor township over in new jersey on the garden state parkway. there's an accident headed southbound around exit 36 going toward 322. the right lane is closed there. so lanes still getting by. traffic won't be a huge issue, not a lot of backups, especially at this time. the vine street expressway, right around 24th street, not dealing with the construction we typically see, westbound or eastbound, all lanes open this morning. the pa turnpike, drive times here, construction as well. p.a. turnpike eastbound friend willow grove and bensalem, watch out for restrictions there. 22 minutes west or eastbound from route 1 to valley forge. taking aim at democrat
hillary clinton. the crowd erupted into chants "lock her up." christie laid out his case against what he called clinton's leadership failures. the federal prosecutor in effect prosecuted a multiprong case against hillary clinton. the convention crowd responded to his litany of charges against her. >> in china and syria, in iran and russia and cuba and here at home for risking america's secrets, to keep her own and lying to cover it all up -- >> hillary. >> christie wrapped up with a call to defeat clinton and a call to vote trump as the next president. gop delegates we talked to
with embraced the message from chris christie, embraced the criticism of hillary clinton including members of the delegation from pennsylvania and new jersey who we talked with right after christie's speech. >> i think christie hit it home. he's in the best form possible in front of a crowd setting forth the reasons why hillary clinton should not be elected president of the united states. the governor was motivational. he was stark. he drew a stark contrast between the choices that we have to make. he gave a great speech.ç >> clinton tweeted out this response to christie's criticisms, if you think chris christie can edlecture anyone o ethics, we have a bridge to sell you. she compared watching the rnc to with the the wizard of oz."
>> even a fog machine. when you pulled back the curtain, it was just donald trump with nothing to offer to the american people! >> clinton also repeated her previous criticisms of donald trump's bankruptcies in atlantic city saying they caused destruction in the resort town. another of donald trump's former primary rival, former republican presidential candidate ben carson associated clinton with the devil during his speech to the delegates, carson said one of clinton's mentors wrote a book dedicated to lucifer. >> if we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? think about that. >> carson also criticized what he called clinton's secular progressive agenda. for a time last night, videos from the rnc, the gop convention ended up on vice president joe biden's twitter
account. the tweets came from a twitter mirror tablet that was used recently at a cancer event. the tweets were eventually deleted. coming up at 4:15, donald trump continues to break with tradition addressing the delegates again last night, this time from new york. we'll explain that. at 4:30, another round of former political rivals are scheduled to speak today. that includes donald trump's vp choice. back to you, katy. >> thank you, tracy, more in the next hour. police say a car stop led them to a troubling and potentially dangerous discovery. nbc 10's matt delucia is live outside philadelphia police headquarters with more on this car stop and what they found. hi, matt. >> hi, katy. police have spent the night questioning this driver, trying to figure out his motives for
having these explosive devices in his car. this is what police found shortly before 10:00 last night at 20th and champlost, a white mini van, double parked. officers noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from that vehicle. then they noticed two 3-year-olds and what looked like fireworks in the van. the bomb squad was called out. one of the more troubling discoveries to them is that some of the devices were homemade. >> had the strength equivalent to about a quarter stick of dynamite, which is pretty powerful. depending on how close those devices were to explode near people, they could cause, i'm sure, serious injury, possibly even death. >> reporter: the 31-year-old driver has been arrested. he's facing a number of charges and those fireworks and explosive devices were confiscated. police say without knowing what the exact motives are here
again, that questioning still under way, without knowing the motives, it's hard to say exactly what was going on here but they say it is especially big concern to them, because of the democratic national convention coming up next week. they don't want to find any explosive devices in any vehicles. they have their guard up already. this was just one case where they wepe able to make this arrest and now we're trying to figure out what is going on here. live at police headquarters, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> 4:08. a trial date has been set for the man charged with ambushing and killing a pennsylvania state police trooper. the trial will begin over a half year from now in march. the pike conte judge already said an out of county jury will be chosen to hear theication c 33-year-old eric frein. he's charged with shooting corporal bryon dickson and shooting another trooper in 2014. he led police on a tense 48-day
manhunt before u.s. marshals caught him. he's entered a not guilty plea. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. 4:09. i'm tracking showers and thunderstorms in south jersey, moving to the southeast about 15 miles an hour. that storm is coming down at a pretty good clip in the vineland area. but it is moving to the southeast. it won't be long, it will move towards the jersey shore. what we have been seeing is heavier downpours and bigger thunderstorm activity in parts of delaware, across delaware bay and there go those thunderstorms, they're exiting the delaware beaches right now. most of the day it is going to be dry. the hour by hour forecast shows quiet conditions at 7:30 this morning. as we go into the afternoon hours, we could see more pop-up showers in south jersey and delaware. most of the rest of the area will be dry. 74 degrees in philadelphia, 82 degrees, low humidity at lunch time today and the humidity stays low as the suburbs climb

i'm tracy davidson live from cleveland where donald trump was officially named the republican party's nominee for president of the united states just a few hours ago, delegates from his home state of new york put him over the top and he thanked the delegates here via video link from new york city. >> meanwhile, what we did getting the party's nomination, i'll never forget it. it's something i will never ever forget.
