the fog disappears. the threat of showers and thunderstorms remain with us. keep an umbrella handy this evening. even storms are possible and could produce heavy downpours. the rain produced offer the weekend, coming back at us this morning. fog thickest in the pocono mountains where the visibility is at a quarter mile. not an issue for northeast philadelphia, trenton or philadelphia international. light fog for millville and atlantic city. we have seen showers and thunderstorms. they're still going in ocean county, very heavy rainfall has moved past forked river and tom's river this morning. some of the showers have more rain on the way. and the potential for more thunderstorms during the day. it's already falling on some rain soaked areas. see an isolated shower in denton and eastern maryland, heading towards kent county in delaware first thing this morning. this is the rainfall total map for the entire week, the last 48 hours.
tremendous rainfall anywhere from 2 to 5 inches. in fact, more than 5 inches. some portions of northern jersey. 2 inches to 3 inches in the suburbs. that's rain soaked ground and that is why we have issued a first alert for the suburbs, the lehigh valley and the pocono mountains. a flash flooding threat exists through this evening thanks to more thunderstorms bringing in heavy rainfall. that flash flood threat will be greatest later today as those storms are likely to take place. all day long we'll feel the humidity, steaminess is sticking with us. 80s this afternoon will feel like it's closer to 90 degrees today. but there is drier weather on the way. it just won't feel it today or tomorrow. afternoon showers and thunderstorms into this evening, 87 degrees. we'll get clouds and some breaks of sunshine. 83 tomorrow, a shower or possibly even a thunderstorm, first thing in theç morning. then drying out as the day goes on. in fact, much more comfortable come wednesday. the humidity will be coming down. it goes even lower on thursday.
65 in the morning, 86 degrees in the afternoon. another nice day, though, a bit warmer on friday. high of 88. steamier for saturday and extra humidity and heat. we have a chance of showers and thunderstorms for saturday. it disappears sunday. still warm, 88 degrees. in fact, upper 80s again on monday. middle 80s for tuesday and wednesday. maybe rainy later today. if you're headed out your door this morning, the roads at least should be dry. >> jessica boyington is here watching things on 422 which typically can get backed up at this time, right? >> can get backed up. we're starting to see more cars head out the door and more of those delays. it's not really affecting the total of our drive time right now. this is 422 around trooper road. nine minutes right now, it's typically a seven-minute drive time. we're not seeing a huge increase there. we are seeing brake lights
eastbound as well. lincoln drive, a vehicle fire blocking off lincoln drive northbound. we'll see delays there. all green for route 70 out in cherry hill, new jersey around kings highway. no problems in either direction. no sun glare here either. we typically see that in that camera. 95, also seeing a southbound drive time of 15 minutes. maybe a two to three-minute increase. no problems from woodhaven road to the vine street expressway. commuters who ride septa's regional rails are in for a change today. >> we'll explain why you have to pay before you board for the afternoon rush at some city stations. and the "today" show starts in just a faw minutes. this morning, pop singer andy grammer is performing live on the plaza. that all starts six minutes from now at 7:00 a.m. i approve this message.

6:57 on your monday. at least one person is dead after a shooting at an apartment complex in montgomery county. >> nbc 10's matt delucia is live in ambler this morning. matt, what have you learned since we last saw you? >> in the last five minutes, the montgomery county coroner arrived on the scene and the d.a.'s office has been here investigating throughout the morning. about an hour ago, i spoke with a woman who says she is the sister of one of the shooting victims, that her 54-year-old sister was murdered inside this apartment building on the 100 block of forest avenue. she says she has no idea what happened. that she never suspected there would be anything wrong. the shooting happened just before midnight. one neighbor told us she heard around five gunshots. we'll take another live look here. you see the coroner's van there.
the investigators are inside that building right now. police have not told us much information at all, only confirming two people have been shot. we are expecting an update later on this morning. as soon as we get that we'll bring that to you. live in ambler, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. good morning, everyone. i'm first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington. we're checking in with the schuylkill expressway right now. we're really bypassing a big part of our morning rush. we don't seem to have big delays in or out of center city right now. this is the schuylkill around the vine street expressway. you can see all traffic is moving along. although we do have things starting to tie up, just a little bit on the schuylkill into center city. we'll check in with the drive times there, eastbound from the blue route to the vine, 18 minutes. that's about a five-minute increase in drive time. nothing too severe right now. no problems on 95 at all, which is very rare for this time. of course it's a monday in the middle of the summer. the blue route looking fine as an saturday being reported in
