off the ramp. they're diverting all the traffic off of airport road. besides avoiding i-95 which i would suggest they do. all of the lanes of traffic, beginning with rush hour traffic, a lot of people on the roads. back to school, back to work, there's also additional cars on the roads anyway, think of it that way. one, two, three -- at least four lanes moving into one. a nasty backup behind it. alternates instead of 95 altogether take route 1, hop ton route 14. and get back on i-95 that way. it's still going to take awe a lot of time. give yourself extra time. bring your breakfast with you in the car. we'll have your updates and more shots from skyforce 10. 20 minutes after 6:00, a live view from crowley stadium in delaware. it's the beginning of what is going to be a hot day. at this hour, we're seeing 60s

burlington county. ocean county. and you may see a possible thunderstorm at 6:00 this evening. and then those showers move offshore. you'll be watching a line of showers farther off. these showers expected to fall apart. just a slight chance of some moving in in lehigh valley by early tomorrow morning. during the day tomorrow, with heat and humidity, we could see pop-up showers, but no widespread rainfall. so the temperatures are going to take off for the next few days, keeping today, but still hot on saturday. for philadelphia, the suburbs, lehigh valley, south jersey and delaware, all into the 90s. then we get some relief on sunday. the heat comes to an end but a warm summer day. 10 day on 10, 95 today, a steamy day on saturday. temperatures start coming down on sunday. look at monday. that's going to be a nice day. story in the morning. 82 in the afternoon. brilliant sunshine. on tuesday, the temperatures
