if it'sy is vernede we're able to see if the other radars and we can warn people sooner. here's how it works. we strapped anusol i had radar system to a high-tech control room on wheels. it's a million dollar investment in you. stormranger was designed by world renowned experts and put to the test in tornado alley, one most dangerous places for weather in the world. it's credited with saving lives in texas and that radar wasn't even on wheels. this is next generation stuff. >> this is radar where can move wherever we want. >> reporter: like your neighborhood, and to the biggest events, reinforcing our first alert neighborhood weather commitment. nbc 10's stormranger, the first in america and first in the world. >> take it closer to the storm and get a better view of the storm and now we're filling in the gaps that a stationary radar is going to miss. >> reporter: keith jones, nbc 10 news. >> and to learn more about

glassboro, new jersey, and the closer we are, you can see there's the sweep, the red one. the other radars we have superimposed on top, but because we're in so close, this is within the 30-mile range which is the most accurate, the beam that goes out is close to the ground so we can see things close to the ground unlike regular radars. there's that storm right near quinton, and it's moving to the northeast, right near lower alloway creek and there's some hail with this storm, possibly up to golf ball size it is a moves up to the northeast. all the other storms are moving in different directions. other slow moving storms have caused flood advisories, one in sussex county until 7:00. one farther to the north, parts of kent county and cumberland county until 9:30 tonight. we're looking up to the north,
too. we have some showers up near the poconos and there's lehigh, allentown down here, so these storms are moving to the south. just the opposite direction of the ones coming out of delaware. it's that kind of wild today. we are tracking the heavy rain, slow moving storms. most people not getting them, but if you do get it, it lasts for a while because it's not moving fast. the clouds kept a lid on some of those storms in parts of the area. philadelphia and central new jersey and northern suburbs which we needed because we've got a lot of rain over the weekend and it's not going to be as brutal with the humidity. tomorrow won't be quite as bad as today and then it improves much more on wednesday. here's the futurecast for tonight. you can see some more showers and storms coming down from the north, and so we're not necessarily done with the rain threat as we go through the night and into the morning. you can see some of the showers moving from the northeast and
that means the winds are coming in off the ocean and that generally means that we've got a lot of clouds around. it's only 77 degrees in philadelphia. a lot of 77s here, and -- and the high today was only 80. 12 degrees colder than it was this tymeer. same store we dover. so, we're not going to get a whole lost sunshine tomorrow. won't be all that warm. 83 degrees and 38 on wednesday and thursday, no rain. friday we're up near 990 and we have a chance of a thunderstorm saturday and overall once we get past tomorrow it's fairly dry pattern with lower humidity. >> hey, i'm john clark from csn. eagles fans were chanting we want wentz at the link and sam bradford spoke about the awkward quarterback situation and more on the trade deadline coming and gone. that's all next.
hey, everybody. i'm john clark at csn. eagles starting week two of training camp and running back ryan matthews and offensive guard brandon brooks missed their fifth straight practice. coach doug pederson expects them back by the end of the week. sam bradford's future with the team is very much in doubt after this season with carson wentz here and there were chants of we want wentz here and here is sam's mindset on this unique situation. >> just control what you can control, you know. at the end of the day that's all
you can do, you know. that's really kind of been a mantra of mine for a while, but, you know, each day just come out and get your best and try to get better and help this football team and don't worry about everything else because there's a million other things going on outside this building and outside this team that i and no one else in that locker room has control of so really just controlling, you know, what i have the power to control. >> good lesson in life. ten days away from the eagles first preseason game against tampa bay. the game can be seen live on csn and cozy of it. kickoff at 7:00, a pregame show at 6:30 and a post-game show right after. the phillies did not make any deals before baseball's trade deadline this afternoon. veteran pitcher jeremy ellicson stays put and here's the gm about staying pat. >> we're not under economic pressure to send money out the door and we are not looking to -- to just dump veterans for the sake of dumping veterans. that's not the business we're
in. we -- you know, i'm cognizant of what our record is this year, but we want to make sure that the young kids on our team are being mentored by the right veterans and the product on the field is as good a it can possibly >> when andy reid was the head coach with the eagles you were remember there were big red impersonators. this is an andy reid press conference or so we thought. this is not andy reid, impersonator chris wilhelm during andy's media session. big red himself comes out and andy has lost some weight. the impersonator had to lose some weight as well. i'm john clark. we're back right after this.
