some breaks in the clouds out to the west so it's possible that once we get rid of that morning batch of shower activity, we break into at least partial sunshine for awhile. some additional showers later this afternoon can't be ruled out. the best chance of all of this appears to be south of philadelphia but don't be surprised if you get caught with something up in philadelphia briefly later today. 54 degrees on your way out the door in philadelphia currently. 53 in wilmington. 43 in allentown. 51 in cape may. so, jackets required on the way out to the bus stop. and on the bus stop itself, mostly cloudy overall, mainly dry, 50 degrees by 6 o'clock and 54 by 8 o'clock. rolling through the day it is going to be a nicer afternoon. we're going to get a lot milder. by 1 o'clock 69 degrees, by 3 o'clock 72 and that's your high. and there's a chance of sunshine returning through the afternoon a-slight chance avenue pop-up shower south of philadelphia. karen rogers we have a really good day tomorrow before we get rain on friday. all of those details coming up in the seven day. >> we'll take each good day as we can. let's head outside. we've got a good looking
morning commute, looking live on the schuylkill expressway this is near conshohocken. that's your westbound traffic headed towards king of prussia. the overnight construction has cleared. you've got your lanes opened none delays on the schuylkill. how is the vine? moving okay. westbound traffic headed towards the schuylkill, eastbound closed overnight for construction, you can see it reopened nice and on time at about 5 o'clock this morning. crews will be back again tonight at 11 o'clock to shut the vine down in both directions. and looking again at the schuylkill expressway here with no problems as you're heading out the door so no issues right there as well. we have one more problem here, kelly drive between hunting park and fountain green drive we have construction going on. they're doing that resurfacing work. usually lasts until about 6:30 in the morning so you'll want to watch for it there. they're blocking all the inbound lanes so traffic is getting by in the outbound lanes and that may slow you down. matt. >> thank you karen. a small town in new england is searching for answers this morning. a man went on a deadly stabbing rampage in massachusetts. it started at a home and ended in a shopping mall. "action news" reporter annie
mccormick has the latest on the investigation live from the satellite center. >> reporter: mart, that's right, two people are dead and four people wounded after police are calling this a one-man stabbing spree that spread across one massachusetts city. now, the suspect is also dead. he was killed by an off duty law enforcement agent. well, this all began on this street in the town about 40 miles south of boston. that's where suspect arthur darosa crashed a car outside of a house then walked into that home and stabbed two women reportedly with a kitchen knife. an 80-year-old victim there died and her daughter is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. police say the suspect then stole a vehicle and crashed that car into the silver city galleria mall in front of a macy's. he assaulted multiple people and entered a restaurant where he stabbed two people including a 56-year-old man who later died. an off duty sheriff's deputy was in that restaurant and shot the suspect.
darosa later died at the hospital. witnesses around the mall and that restaurant describe the chaos. >> when i was coming in the car was like swerving into the parking lot. >> we were pulling up and as we pulled up we just saw some girls who were pretty shaken up and told us -- they were freaking out like don't go in there. >> we were sit, in the car right in front of the main entrance and we saw a pregnant lady being pulled out and she was holding onto her stomach screaming and crying for her baby, please help my baby. >> reporter: authorities say that sheriff's deputy likely saved many more lives. now, at this hour they're still trying to piece this altogether and try to figure out if this is all random or if there was some sort of connection that the suspect had to the people he assaulted and killed. for now reporting live from the satellite center, annie mccormick channel6 "action news." back to you. >> annie thank you for that. and new this morning police are trying to figure out who shot a man in camden. it happened around 1:30 this morning on south seventh street near everett street. the and den identified victim -m
was brought to the hospital. a student managed to get ahold of a gun. this happened at reading muhlenberg career technology center. the employee took the las clas to the parking lo the to work on his car as part of a training program. the weapon was inside the vehicle. it wasn't until the worker left for the day that he realized his gun was gone. police quickly recovered it from the student who had swiped it during a lesson. that student has been suspended. >> ♪ >> 5:35 now and happening today, hillary clinton campaigns in blackwood, new jersey. the state's primary is less than a month away. bernie sanders is holding two rallies in montana today. the democratic won easily in west virginia last night but only gained a small amount of delegates. sanders needs to claim 66 percent of the remaining primary and caucus delegates to secure the democratic nomination and yet, the senator vows to bring his battle with clinton to the convention in philadelphia.
presumptive gop nominee donald trump won the west virginia and nebraska primaries. ted cruz and john kasich were still listed on the ballot. and received some votes. cruz said yesterday he hasn't ruled out jumping back into the race if he sees a path to victory. the head to head matchup between donald trump and hillary clinton may be closer than some pundits are predicting. a new quinnipiac university poll has the candidates neck and neck in three battleground states, pennsylvania, ohio and florida. clinton barely edges trump in pennsylvania and florida 43 to 42 percent. but that is within the margin of error. trump has a statistical lead in ohio, 43 percent to clinton's 39. >> happening today, philadelphia city council will hold a hearing o mayor jim kenney's proposed 2017 budget. he is calling for a three-cent per ounce tax to help fund programs including universal pre-k.

that western chester county, just a little blip down around malvern, a little bit more pushing in toward quakertown, so, you know, it's not out of the question that in the northern and western suburbs you see a little bit of something. this stuff actually west of quakertown is just ground clutter. you can tell 'cause it's not moving but generally speaking a lot drier this morning than it's been the last couple of mornings and as we go through the day clouds mixing with some sun and hopefully most of our shower activity remains down to the south. we can't totally rule out something in philadelphia but just some intermittent showers down south looks to be the best bet. as we take a look outside, we have cloudy skies but there are some breaks in the clouds right now, get something pinks coming in underneath those early morning clouds. looks like a little bit of a break higher above the ben franklin bridge there. 54 degrees is your current temperature. it's cool enough for a jacket this morning but we are going to be warming up a lot faster today than we did yesterday. winds out of the north-northwest at 5 miles per hour. satellite and radar shows you that current batch of showers coming through. then some breaks in the clouds out to the west.
then some additional showers and again, most of this tracking down south. hopefully missing philadelphia although we can't totally guarantee that. big order of the day though he is going to be clouds mixing with some sunny breaks and milder than it was yesterday. 54 by 8 o'clock, 62 by 10 o'clock, 67 by noon. and by 3 o'clock, 72 degrees. that is your warm afternoon high with a mix of clouds and some sun. the thing about the sun today, the farther north you go, up toward the lehigh valley, northern bucks, northern montgomery county the better chance you have of seeing a little more of that. the farther south you go through the region probably more clouds winning most of the day. high temperatures not bad. 70 in allentown, 72 in philadelphia and as you move down toward the shore we'll be in the 60's today. and then tomorrow a great day on tap. next storm system will be to the south and west of us and we'll squeeze out a nice one with a high of 74, a mix of clouds and sun and then on friday, this system comes through and it does bring us a period of rain. future tracker6 shows that you by 4 o'clock friday afternoon we very likely will be looking at some showers and maybe even
a couple thunderstorms mixd in. hopefully this all gets over to the east fairly quickly and we can get our evening activities in on friday dry. that would include the phillies game. they're back home on friday. 72 is today's high and your exclusive accuweather 7-day clouds mixing with some sun, a spotty shower can't be ruled out especially south. 72 with a period of rain coming through mainly during the afternoon and early evening. thunderstorm mixed in as well. saturday mostly cloudy, 72, a warm high but there is the chance of another late day or evening shower or thunderstorm. and then behind that system on sunday it's breezy and cooler, dry with partly sunny skies but a high of just 63. looks like we stay in the 60's on monday and tuesday with a gradual increase in clouds early next week. overall not too bad of a seven day, though. >> okay. thank you david. it is now 5:40 and still ahead on "action news," the midwestern mom on the run with her toddler in the back seat. >> and if a bartender in new york city refuses to serve a pregnant woman an alcoholic

here. it's closing 47 in both directions. you'll have to stick to route nine as your alternate. and as we look right now at storm tracker6 live double scan you can see down there in cape may county that's one of the only areas we have some real rain at this point. otherwise you may just see a sprinkle in and around through your early morning hours. not too bad. let's look at your commuter traffic report. we have hammer 454 reporting an object on the road on 495 southbound in wilmington so as you're headed down there on 495 just want to watch for that. temperature-wise it's 54 degrees headed out the door right now. and today will be warmer than yesterday. so, we like that. a high of 72 with lots of clouds and some sun, matt and tam. >> all right, thank you karen. the search goes on for the mother in a minivan who led police on a wild chase through an ohio suburb. dashcam footage shows erica barreiro-rapp driving backwards and speeding through several lawns before driving up a street the wrong way all while her toddler was in the back seat of the car. police called off the chase to
