6:10 am
bright and early, looking live in hd and we see some clouds lingering over philadelphia international with those showers that have moved through but we'll see a good amount of sunshine today as well. temperatures 73 degrees right now in philadelphia. the dewpoint 67. it is way up from yesterday when we were just in the 50's. you feel the humidity as soon as you step outside and that's with that west-southwesterly flow kind of purging in the hot more humid air at only 7 miles an hour though so not much of a breeze to help you out. pressure 30.05-inches. looking at satellite 6 and action radar we can see some of the cloud cover left over from those residual showers that we had move through. this is already off the coastline. you saw with our live radar exactly where that is. that's off coastline now. we can see clouds trying to fill in from the west and of course that powerful storm system that spawned tornadoes we've been talking about in nebraska, we can see chicago getting hit with wet weather right now and that's going to reintensify as it moves through new york state but really not affecting us. late tonight maybe we get a shower in your northwest suburbs or a thunderstorm but the rest of us remain dry and
6:11 am
certainly through the daytime hours. but it's a summer preview because this jet is displaced way up to the north, high pressure in control around the carolinas that's just pumping up this hot humid air. so we're in the 90's not just today but tomorrow as well. by 9:00 a.m., 79 degrees, hazy sunshine. by noon, 88 and with a good amount of sunshine. by 3:00 p.m. 90. hottest day so far this year. we'll hit 91 around 4 o'clock and coming down from that high about 88 at 6:00 p.m. i think at 6:00 p.m. we're dry and maybe a chance for a shower in your northwest suburbs. a good place to escape the heat, down the shore because a sea breeze is going to kick in. we're starting it off with a good amount of clouds at the shore. by this afternoon you'll have a lot of sun and that sea breeze. by 11:00 a.m. 79 degrees and after that sea breeze really takes affect by 3:00 p.m. dropping it do town about 77 degrees. but i want to show you future tracker 6. later on this afternoon expecting a high of 91 but it will feel more like it's 95.
6:12 am
this is tracking the heat indices, what it's going to feel like in the area. wait until we fast forward to tomorrow afternoon. about 4:30 it's going to feel like a hundred degrees in the city when you factor in both the heat and humidity. let's look at the seven day forecast. hot and humid today, 91 degrees for your high. the union has a national tournament today so they're going to be playing through dry conditions but it will be sticky. tomorrow hot with the chance for some gusty thunderstorms. we have a lot of chance for thunderstorms but it's wednesday afternoon and wednesday night when we have the chance for these storms top perhaps develop into severe so we're going to watch that closely. 94 for your high on wednesday. thursday it's still kind of sticky, 87 degrees. we at least knock down the temperature but remain unsettled. friday partly sunny skies. by friday i think it feels less humid, 84 with a chance for a shower. the weekend it looks like a front kind of lingers nearby so we have a fair amount of clouds mixing with some sunshine both saturday and sunday and on both days the chance for a few showers. and on saturday only 82. on sunday 80 for your high. monday stays a bit unsettled,

>> welcome back. deptford gloucester county here in new jersey. you see that train halted because earlier this morning it was involved in an accident with a pedestrian. so right now rescue crews are on the scene and investigators trying to figure out exactly what happened here around 4:45 in the morning near jobstown road and crown point road in west deptford. we know one person was taken to a nearby hospital. we're still checking on their condition and again officials there on the scene where that train was involved in some sort of accident with a pedestrian. >> matt is that train blocking any of the roads around there? >> we don't think so.
6:17 am
we think there are emergency crews out there possibly restricting traffic along jobstown road near route 44 which is crown points road. that's not too far away from the post office if you're familiar with the area but we think that vehicular traffic can get by and the thing with this train is it's a csx train which means a freight train, not a passenger train so you don't have to worry about this affecting nj transit or anything like that. but as you can see the train is stopped on the tracks, not getting through at this point so it could cause some issues with freight trains but again not affecting passenger trains this morning, and at this point aside from some restrictions along jobstown road, you can get by. if you normally use jobstown, stick with grove avenue as an alternate. we're also watching a crash this morning in moorestown, burlington county right along route 38. that's the spot to avoid at mount laurel road. earlier we were seeing some delays along 295 southbound headed toward 38. those delays have dissipated now and speeds back up into the mid 60's so we think that the ambulance that was on the
6:18 am
scene of that accident has probably left. meanwhile in wilmington, katherine gives us the good news that maryland avenue has reopened around that fire and building collapse so you can get by there again and speaking of wilmington, travel times are still on time along i-95. you know they've been heavy many mornings because of the 495 closure. at this point this morning they remain on time. if you're out and about in souderton don't forget about the new closure that took effect yesterday. the intersection of cow path godshall and west broad. that lasts until november. allentown road a possible alternate. camera time along the schuylkill with building eastbound volume here by montgomery drive but at this point no huge delays. matt. >> thanks, matt. police in delaware county need your help in finding someone who they believe was playing the so-called knockout game. [laughter] that punch you heard was followed by laughter at septa's aaron ming avenue trolley stop in upper darby back on wednesday. police say a group of teens pressured someone to attack the 58-year-old victim, punching him in the head.
6:19 am
the video showed up on social media. police have found the victim and now want to punish the person who threw that punch. >> 6:19. accuweather is calling for highs today over 90. karen. >> that's right if you're heading out the door be prepared for the warmth and the humidity and let's check those temperatures for you. >> right now as you're headed out the door, 91 degrees. it will be the first time we hit 90 in over nine months and we go up from there. details in m devin dwyer.
