this forecast this morning. we've got rain across the region. best news we can give you is that in parts of the region we are starting to see the worst of this push away and if we take a look at philadelphia, that's one of those areas. it's still raining in the city but not as heavily as it was a little while ago when some of that yellow was in town. as we take a quick look at the movement of this you can see that it is pushing off to the north and east f you're in trenton you're going get clipped with some of this heavier stuff although it's pretty wet up there. farther to the south we go. there is another area of concern right down along the shore. you can see that heavy rain pushing in from the south through cape may up through sea isle city and tuckahoe and places that are in a little bit of a lull around mays landing and millville are probably going start to see the arrival of that extra back of precipitation before too much longer. northern and western suburbs die down a bit. we have that break in the action down by baltimore and gettysburg. later in the morning we'll get into that lull and it will be slightly damp until the next round of rain arrives later this afternoon as we take a look outside we have cloudy skies across the region and

6:16 am
on i-95 just to get to this. it was a messy situation and we had some emergency vehicles, fire crews out here a minute ago blocking the left lane on i-95 northbound as well so no cars moving. what they're trying to do is some of the cars are sneaking around to the ramp and heading just a few at a time on the ramp to get around this. but it's just cree creates a huge backup. i-95 backed up -- you can use frankford avenue instead or use the boulevard so southbound lanes are just all blocked and it is a mess on i-95. and there you see some people -- can you see they're trying to cut around the traffic and get into this ramp right here so that's a difficult situation right now. i-95 southbound all lanes blocked. we'll continue to be on top of that accident scene. and there you can see the traffic right there. that's just been a mess. we've got other issues around the area. here's an accident in swedesboro. swedesboro monroeville road right near the new jersey turnpike and we're hearing there were people entrapped in the accident there so a terrible situation. emergency workers coming to the scene here. this isn't that far off from

i mean, i was standing 20 feet away. he ended up leaving and the whole gas tank fell over but after that the whole -- the whole gas tank caught fire. >> a nearby convenience store and mcdonald's were evacuated. fortunately no one was injured. temple university says the officer remains on duty but he will not be driving until the accident review board finishes its investigation. >> all right, let's get an update on the rain, where it is, where it's going. >> yeah, how about. lots of accidents out there, too, including that southbound 95 one near cottman. karen will have more on that in a moment. that's a mess. hard to imagine the rain doesn't have something to do with it. we haven't had it in awhile. it has been coming down fairly steadily at times this morning. as we go in tighter, in and around philadelphia we are finally seeing a letup in the rain so that it's just the lighter sprinkles and showers popping through right now and we even have a current break in part of the city. up in trenton there's still some of that heavier stuff popping to the north and this is clipping areas right close to trenton and another little blob of this coming into southern bucks county as well.
6:39 am
if we go out wide, the other area of concern would be south jersey where there is another wave of heavier precipitation highlighted in yellow that is sweeping up in through the coastal counties and a little bit of this might catch philadelphia but notice how out to the west there is a lull coming and we are going to get into a situation where it's less rain still kind of damp and moist through the middle portion of the day. but we do get a break until another round comes in later. as we take a look outside, we have cloudy skies obviously. the clouds low enough to obscure tops of the buildings in center city and it is on the cool side and obviously damp. 56 degrees currently in philadelphia. breezy, too. winds out of the northeast 14 miles per hour this morning. future tracker6 between now and 9 o'clock showing you how there might be some of that coastal rain but it look like we'll get into a lull across much of the region so that we go from 9 o'clock all the way up to about 3 o'clock and, yeah, it's still damp but it's not quite as widespread and in-- or as intense a rainfall
6:40 am
as what we have had for parts of this morning. and then after about 3 o'clock you'll be looking at another band of steadier rain beginning to build n the first heavier stuff has been basically in the south and east. the next one later today is probably centered from about i-95 farther to the north and west between 6 o'clock and 11 o'clock it does starter to pull out of here and we start to see things get better. i think there's a real good chance though that both adam joseph and cecily tynan tonight on phl17 and here on 6abc between 10:00 and help:30 will have more to show you on radar. as we take a look at rainfall amounts, well, some of the models are showing maybe an inch, some a little bit less. i do think a half inch the an inch forecast is a pretty good range to look at. by the time all this is said and done later tonight. 57 degrees by 8 o'clock. 60 by 11 o'clock. 62 by 2 o'clock with a high of 63 around 3 o'clock. association it's going to be cool and gray all the way. again, heavier rain in the morning starting to taper off. then we get into sort of a damp period of the day and then it gets steadier again
6:41 am
particularly in those northern and western suburbs later this afternoon and tonight. high temperatures across the region, little bit of a range. 58 in allentown, 59 in reading. could get up to about 65 in millville and 63 in philadelphia. and similar numbers down the shore, low 60's in atlantic city and down the coast in cape may. hurricane -- i should say tropical storm kate still a tropical storm now moving away from the bahamas. looks like it will miss bermuda maybe become a category one before it heads out to sea but that does not look like a threat to anyone at this point. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, 63 is today's high, cloudy skies, periods of rain, another heavier batch coming in later today and tonight. and then there may be a little drizzle left over early wednesday morning but generally speaking we're looking at a fast improvement and a nice partly sunny day for veterans day ceremonies. a high of 65. that's really the best day of the week. 63 cloudy and damp with periods of rain moving back in on thursday. and then we dry out on friday, sunny and breezy, 60 and back into the 50's for the weekend but it's a nice fall weekend coming up. dry conditions. eagles fans will be happy with

6:46 am
to get through. they're trying to get this stuck traffic out of here before they open all lanes at woodhaven. so all lanes still blocked i-95 southbound at woodhaven. but they're trying to allow some of the stuck traffic to get through. the roads are just a mess. you can stick to frankford avenue or the boulevard southbound instead of i-95 southbound but they at least have that accident off to the side so things starting to improve. we have another accident i-95 southbound. this one in delaware and it's right near churchman's road. you're seeing speeds of about eight, 11 miles an hour i-95 southbound leading to this accident and one of my twitter followers john saying three cars spun out on i-95 and southbound. it looks like it was just a fast stretch and people taking it too fast. you can't today. you've got the roads that are wet, you've got wet leaves out there and we're finding accidents everywhere. here we've got still the construction 495 northbound at terminal avenue creating big delays there. we've got a water main break here in voorhees as if you didn't have enough problems in camden county, al have a avenue closed down near evesham road.
