dewpoints are in the 50's in most neighborhoods and getting just up into the slightly humid range down in cape may and dover. but most of us are off to a very comfortable start and probably staying that way today. it is going to be warm. we'll have sunshine, temperature in the 70's in the morning. the 80's in the afternoon and we actually will pop all the way up to 88 degrees for a high probably around 3:30 or 4:00 this afternoon. the heat starts to kick in again tomorrow and it does look like heat wave number seven is in the offing probably starting tomorrow, karen. details coming up in that seven day. >> all right. if you're headed back to school good luck to you. if you're headed out on the roads to go to work you need a little luck too because it has been really busy at this early hour. this shot is frozen at that time moment but you can still see the problem. this is an accident involving a tractor-trailer and a vehicle and the accident off to the side but right around this curve, this is the blue route southbound at mid-county, so just be careful as you're rounding that curve with this accident off to the side. also an accident here in upper dublin on david drive at fitzwatertown road in montgomery county. one in chalfont bucks county.

male involved one time in the torso area of the body. >> reporter: now, police will only say that that 19-year-old shooting victim is a relative of that off duty police officer but they would not elaborate. they say at this hour he is still at aria torresdale and he is in critical but stable condition. for now reporting live outside of police headquarters, annie mccormick, channel6 "action news." back to you. >> okay, thank you annie. and new this morning a driver was hurt during a collision with an ambulance. the crash happened just before 2:00 a.m. at city and lancaster avenues in philadelphia's overbrook section. the driver is in stable condition and no medics were injured. >> ♪ >> happening today, a montgomery county judge could set a date for bill cosby's sex assault trial. the comedian and his defense team will be back in court for an evidence hearing in norristown. they're expected to push to have key testimony from a prior civil lawsuit thrown out of the case. cosby had acknowledged giving his accuser andrea constand several pills before what he called a consensual sexual

beach at all. there's going to be rough conditions with rip currents but precipitation-wise it looks like all the rain from hermine right now anyway is pretty much off the coast. you might see a little sprinkle right down along the shore or a brief shower today. stepping outside most of us are looking at clear skies overhead currently and that would include philadelphia international airport. now, as we show you sky6 cameras this morning, every now and then they bounce a little bit because we do have breezes wrapping down out of the north around the center of hermine off the coast. temperature is 73 degrees, dewpoint down at 58 with that north wind we're still looking at relatively low dewpoints and the winds noticeable certainly at 16 miles per hour and probably staying rather breezy today. hermine is finally making that push toward the east. it's a little bit more of a northerly latitude than the earlier prognostications a couple of days ago were showing and the latest model run does show this continuing a track toward us and then turning back toward the north probably by later tonight or in the wee hours of this morning. it's not as strong a storm as was originally forecast but
still strong enough. as it pushes toward us, it will continue with those breezes down the north and continue to churn up that surf a little bit. again, by wednesday and then in through thursday morning it does look like it's getting back up toward new england and being really more of a problem there. in terms of cloud cover and rain today, you don't see a lot of showers on here. every now and then there's a possibility of one and obviously it will be cloudier over by the coast than it will be elsewhere. i'm going call for a mostly sunny day in philadelphia and then hope those clouds don't really make a run at the city all that much. 70 degrees today at 8 o'clock in philadelphia. 77 at 10:00 so it looks like we're in the 70's for the majority of the morning. then in the 80's for the afternoon with 87 at 3 o'clock and a high of 88 probably around 3:30 or 4:00. breezy but fairly bright today and humidity behaving itself outside of areas down south where it could be a little bit stickier, places like dover and cape may might be a little humid today. mostly sunny and breezy in general. and highs in the mid to upper 80's with lower temperatures down south, the higher temperatures up the i-95 corridor.
could even get reading up to about 90 and down the shore we're looking at upper 70's in the northern shores and maybe low 80's down south. again, heavy surf and rip currents once again a problem. then tomorrow we get a front coming out as it's going to very slowly approach us over the next several days and ahead of it we'll get back into the 90's. tomorrow we'll build the humidity a little bit in the afternoon with a high of 91 and that is the beginning of will likely be heat wave number seven. here's yourlusive accuweather 7-day, 88 degrees bright and warm today. hot and a bit more humid tomorrow a high of 91. then near record heat on thursday, friday and saturday with highs in the mid 90's. by saturday, if you're headed to the temple game or the union match you want cool drinks as part of your plan. and the same goals for sunday although we will be easing back to 88. eagles of course opening up with carson wentz behind center. kind of excited to see that actually. and but you'll need cool drinks at that one, too. there could be an afternoon thunderstorm on sunday. then monday we're back to nicer weather. >> all right. looking forward to that. my yard needs some rain. >> i know. >> all right. it is now 5:40.
