thanks for being with us on this sunday. it's 10:00. let's begin with that weather with meteorologist krystal klei. i'll let her handle details on this. the thing is, it really can be dangerous so we do want people to be careful out there. >> that's exactly right. we may joke around that it's hot outside but it's no joke when it's the middle of the afternoon how high these temperatures have been and will continue to be in the days to come. that's why we're under a first alert. you can see the seven-day forecast scrolling at the bottom of your screen. a live look outside right now in wilmingt wilmington. no game at home today. maybe a good thing. temperatures will be so high later this afternoon. here's where we are right now across the map. in philadelphia, 87 degrees. suburbs, 83. that's about as good as with he do. 83 lehigh valley. 87 in delaware. winds not terribly strong for us today. it's all about the temperatures. take a look. 97 the high temperature in philadelphia and parts of the
pennsylvania suburbs. lower new jersey to lehigh valley but overall these mid to upper 90s. you'll feel the heat. good news slightly lower humidity today but it's back up tomorrow with chances of storms. we'll talk those storms and the details on your heat wave in just a bit. >> thanks for that. we are counting down to the start of the democratic national convention. the gavel will come down at 3:00 tomorrow afternoon to officially start the convention. delegates will be meeting here at the wells fargo center to nominate hillary clinton. before the convention even begins, there are protests planned for today and tomorrow in south philly. this all comes amid a new e-mail scandal that is sending shock waves through the party. nbc 10's drew smith is live in south philadelphia where security is tight. drew? >> reporter: the police call this the epicenter of the protest zone. fdr park behind me. this is where a lot of marches
which start elsewhere will end up. sanders supporters have been vocal with us this morning saying the e-mail leak from wikileaks is adding fuel to the fire for protesters coming here to the dnc who have claimed all along that the primary process was rigged. wikileaks e-mails show that a dnc staffer suggested that the committee should talk to reporters about the sanders campaign being a mess and they described the sanders organization as one that never had its act together. another e-mail hinted at using sanders' religious beliefs against him. sanders supporters say their suspicions from the beginning are now confirmed. >> it's such a relief to see it in print. it's such a relief to see it actually being acknowledged instead of people saying that we're all crazy and conspiracy theorists and all that.
>> reporter: we did take a walk through the park earlier. large green space next to the wells fargo center divided up into zones. emergency workers are ready with resources already in place for all of the protests and rallies that are scheduled throughout we know that bernie sanders delegates will meet in a half hour. they're holding a news conference to react to this wikileaks document dump. hillary clinton's vice presidential pick. we're going to head to that and we're live in south philadelphia, i'm drew smith, nbc 10 news. >> we'll make history in philadelphia by nominating and electing the first woman president of the united states. >> mayor jim kenny says philadelphia is ready to shine in the international spotlight. the secret service did a final security sweep overnight inside the wells fargo center as protesters prepared for their we go into the protest training.

those people and that movement is going to continue. >> reporter: with the city of philadelphia providing an historic backdrop, visitors say the boldness of the founding fathers gives their cause even more purpose. >> they have to take that chance to achieve what this nation is now. if we don't do the same thing, we don't have anybody to blame but ourselves. >> you can count on nbc 10 to track all of the developments coming from the democratic national convention. we're going to be broadcasting live from inside the wells fargo center every day of the dnc just like we did for the rnc in cleveland and bring you a nightly one-hour special that starts tomorrow evening at 7:00. today the vice chair of the democratic national committee and other members of congress striking trump taj mahal

septa bus crash. the port richmond neighborhood. drivers of bus and car went to the hospital along with a bus passenger. we're working to find out the extent of their injuries. new from overnight, philly police are looking for a driver who took off after this three-car crash on roosevelt boulevard. at least one person went to the hospital here. this crash happened along the boulevard at d street around 2:00 a.m. police are still trying to figure out what caused it. in delaware county, firefighters tell us that the heat is making their job pretty difficult. last night crews battled this fire at a beer distributor on marshall road in upper darby. >> the gear that we wear, i tell people it's like wearing a snow suit in this hot, humid weather. so basically as a command officer, any time you have a fire in heat like this, you look at double the manpower to circulate the guys through to
make sure they're hydrated and try not to work them too much. >> sounds like they have a pretty good system. nobody was hurt in this fire and no firefighters suffered from heat exhaustion or smoke inhalation. no word on what started it. 10:09 on this sunday. the rush is on to save wild horses. we'll show you how mother nature is threatening one of america's most beautiful natural attractions along the maryland shore.

conditioners and fans and of course don't leave the elderly, children or pets alone in the car. these live looks outside are deceiving. looks like a gorgeous day to be outside. temperatures are starting to bump into the 80s with expectation as you see bottom of your screen with neighborhood forecasts a lot of 90s out there later today. just like we've seen the last three days in a row. so on top of the fact we've got sunshine, we'll have a few clouds mixing in by afternoon. here are some of your forecast temperatures. 97 in center city. chestnut hill at 95. doylestown, 94 degrees. easton at 96. lehigh valley, mid 90s across the map with feel-like temperatures pretty close to the actual temperature today. that's because humidity took a bit of a dip. it will be right back up tomorrow. this isn't a long lived break from that. looking at new jersey, cape may,
86 degrees. we are looking at parts of the shore, delaware beaches, more of a break from the higher temperatures. mid 80s for ocean city. wilmington at 96. these temperatures in the 90s today look good compared to your monday. so coming up in just a few minutes, we'll talk more about how pot we get monday and the possibility of storms. >> 10:13 on this sunday. remembering those lost. this morning a memorial grows at the site of the deadly shopping mall attack in germany. we're learning new information about the gunman. that's straight ahead.
fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 100 meg internet. which means that in the time it takes mr. wagner to pour a 20 oz. cup of coffee, tommy can download 30 songs, and jan can upload 120 photos. 12 seconds. that's the power of fiber optics. and right now you can get 100 meg internet with equal upload and dowloads speeds, tv and phone for just $69.99 per month online. cable can't offer internet speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can.

following "meet the press" here on nbc 10. already 87 the temperature for us in philadelphia and delaware. south jersey at 85 degrees. 83 lehigh valley and jersey shore. saw 70s early this morning. long gone. already nearing 90 for us in parts of philadelphia. these temperatures of course as you see bottom of your screen, neighborhood seven-day forecast, always scrolling along. we're looking at very hot conditions not just today but day after day. that's why we're under that first alert. here's a closer look along the shore. atlantic city at 82 degrees. egg harbor, 83. we're at 84 ocean city and 87 already down near cape may. so temperatures right across the board in those 80s. now the shore actually shouldn't warm up too much more as we move into the afternoon. we're talking low 90s for
forecast highs. but as you move more inland, those temperatures do crank up. radar and satellite map not a lot going on here. we have clouds mixing in with sunshine. i expect that to continue into the afternoon. the difference from yesterday is yesterday we had a cold front pass. we had that moist, soupy air. then we mixed a cold front in. the cold front didn't bring cold air but enough lift for storms to pop. we saw isolated severe storms develop and those moved out quickly. clear skies behind it. a little lower humidity. so today the feel-like temperature not going to be quite as rough. regardless, we're nearing record highs today. 97 the forecast for us in philadelphia. 98 is the record set back in 2011. so one degree shy of the record. tomorrow looking like we'll break one. 99 in the forecast high. previous record at 96 degrees. so looks like we'll break it by three degrees. tuesday, good news. not breaking this one. 101 is the record.
we're forecasting a high at 96. feel-like temperatures up to around 100 degrees. hour by hour storm potential, we're dry through your sunday aside from clouds. by monday morning commute, could be wet especially if you go farther north. those showers move out. the next line storm potential late day into your early evening. that also moving out overnight. more on your ten-day outlook in just a bit. >> we'll see you shortly. thanks. out west today, authorities say a burned body has been found in a neighborhood that was swept up by a wildfire just north of los angeles. detectives are now trying to figure out if the person was killed by the flames or some other cause. this area was one of many evacuated as the santa clarita fire doubled in size yesterday. this fire along with a second fire to the north are threatening thousands of homes. overseas, we're learning more about the shooter who killed nine people at that mall in munich. the people of germany are
