county as well, so you still have another few hours perhaps of some rain and some of it could be staged as -- could be staged we'll -- steady. the break in the clouds will start to move towards the east as well. 67 degrees in philadelphia. some of your roads might still be wet even though it's been a hour after the rain has come through. in the northern and western suburbs probably getting a little better. 68 degrees in millville, 60 in allentown. not a lot of leaves on the road yet but if you see some of that be careful. when they get damp you can get slipping and sliding and the same thing is true if there's a little oil on the road. we have improvement. 66 degrees by 7 o'clock with early showers. 67 degrees with some sun starting to breakthroughs especially out west by 10 o'clock. and then the rest of the afternoon improved conditions up to 75 for a high around 4 o'clock. and more and more sunshine returning from west to east. karen, there's more unsettled weather in the seven-day from accuweather. i'll have details on that coming up. in the moon time that is a road that looks a little wet.

>> it's wet its jammed. we've got an accident and i think the problem that we're seeing is even in the areas where the rain has already moved out like philadelphia, north and west, the roads are still wet so accidents are popping up. so, take it easy out there. we're looking live at i-95. this is southbound at the betsy ross bridge and you see this vehicle right here, we have an accident, it was blocking the left lane. we watched live when they stopped traffic and kind of pushed it off to the side right now so penndot still on the scene. it's off to the side but look how jammed are you on i-95 southbound at the betsy ross bridge. it doesn't take much with a lane blocked to create a delay in this area. already jammed from cottman avenue to aramingo avenue and this accident off to the side on i-95 southbound at the betsy ross bridge and certainly it's not our only one. we've got this one here, 95, 17 miles an hour at times ahead of it. the accident we had on the schuylkill westbound at the vine, that has cleared but look at the jam. still traveling only 9 miles an hour westbound on the schuylkill ahead of that earlier accident scene. and this accident on the schuylkill westbound at the boulevard, that's out there as

6:09 am
little bit here. you had earlier rain in the predawn hours down south but now you're getting that second batch. philadelphia in the meantime just a little bit of a sprinkle or shower. in fact i think we'll go in a little bit closer here before we zip down to the south and -- maybe not but in any event there is just a light shower in philadelphia. obviously the western suburbs drying out. you're going to have to wait a little bit longer down by the shore. temperatures currently 60 degrees in allentown, 62 in reading, 67 in philadelphia, 66 in wilmington and 70 in cape may. as we take a look at future tracker6 this has been picking up the progression of the rain pretty well this morning. between now and 9 o'clock we expect this rain to be over by the coast and maybe getting off the coast shortly after 9:00. the other thing we'll be watching is clouds thinning outer starting outer in the northwest and winding up in the east. as we go through the morning and afternoon look for increased sunshine starting in the northern and western suburbs. in the lehigh valley clouds to sun breezy 74 is the high. at the shore we're going mostly cloudy to start out although there is the
6:10 am
possibility of some late sunshine returning. and those showers centered mainly during the morning rush hour probably getting off the coast pretty quickly this morning. 75 is your high in philadelphia with clouds giving way to sun. breezy winds out of the west at eight to 16 miles per hour. overnight it gets cool dropping to 59 degrees with a few clouds but a lot of stars and winds really slackening off. then we look at tomorrow and future tracker6 has a little sprinkle or shower down the shore in the morning but the main bulk of the rain will be later in the afternoon or evening as a few sprinkles or showers start to build in and then eventually some steadier rain. and this pockets of it anyway could continue through thursday. and that's all because we've got an upper level low pressure system getting kind of cut off from the jet stream so it can't really move through. it does look like it will migrate between wednesday and friday from chicago down to a point just to our south and then kind of hang here for a couple of days and that will keep us fairly cloudy. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast 75 today, clouds to sun, breezy, rain ending pretty quickly. tomorrow, sun to clouds, 75
6:11 am
and as you just saw rain mainly at night. could be steady at times, though. and then that spills in through thursday with that low pressure center getting closer to us and thursday could feature periods of rain some of it steady, the high of just 69 on thursday. and then as that low takes its time departing the area, friday and saturday probably both maintain mostly cloudy sky cover and there could be a lingering shower around on friday and maybe another one on saturday. by sunday, it's clouds and sun, 75. and just a slight chance of a sprinkle or shower. >> okay, thanks dave. 6:11 now. lost at sea amount man survives more than a week in the atlantic ocean but his mother is still missing. >> last night's showdown is the most tweeted debate in history. see which moments are grabbing the most attention on social media. karen. >> we've got another new problem on 422 westbound at 29. a disabled vehicle right here so traffic a little slow in that area. we'll check that accident on i-95 when "action news" comes right back. >> ♪ [ clock ticking ]

6:15 am
the rain. that's surprising. then the problems really started to pop up. right now we're looking live at i-95. this is southbound at the betsy ross bridge and we see he some heavier volume right now. an accident had been moved off to the side but you can kind of see how that traffic's really jamming on i-95 southbound. a spot that would be delayed anyway but with an accident that was blocking a lane it just created that extra jam. we're jammed from academy road now to past aramingo so a slow go there. let's check the accidents here that we've had on the schuylkill expressway. we had one on i-95 southbound as we mentioned at the betsy ross bridge. you're traveling 14, 17 miles an hour. we had an accident on the schuylkill westbound and that was near the vine. that had really jammed traffic. that one cleared and the delays are clearing as well. but still an accident on the schuylkill westbound at the roosevelt boulevard so we've had accidents on the schuylkill, accidents on i-95. in addition to that we've got a multi-vehicle accident out here and this is in norristown, three vehicles involved on hawes avenue at main street. so that one is creating problems as well as an
6:16 am
accident on layfield road at hoffmanville road. this one in new hanover township so that's a new one coupling in. a number of accidents coming in. we even have someone on the waze app reporting an accident on lincoln drive a minor accident that's near the walnut lane golf corso watch for that. this is likely the real reason for it all. it's the rain that's out hear there. so the rain has been shifting, clearing out from the northwest to the southeast also a it slowly pushes. if you're in the western suburbs you're already dry but the roads are still wet. even in the city there's only a couple sprinkles left but we can look into new jersey and delaware and that's where the bulk of the rain is still coming down at this point and that's create something problems. you can see in it dover, you can see in it fortescue raining pretty good in millville along 55 and mays landing, in hammonton just a little bit of rain but this is headed in that direction but even where the rain is finished the roads are still wet tam. >> thank you karen. a man lost at sea for eight days will be reunited with his family today in boston. but it will be a sad moment. a ship discovered 22-year-old

6:38 am
scan shows that you philadelphia might have a little leftover sprinkle or shower around but generally speaking things are getting better and if we take that two dimensional view you can see that philadelphia itself looking good. there are still some heavier cells though down in south jersey and in some cases this could be piling up on the roadways a little bit so if you're in atlantic county cape may county or even back into areas of southern new castle county and certainly salem county, new jersey, be careful of this stuff as it is going to show you down a little bit as it pushes through. looks like it will probably be off the coast by about 9 o'clock or maybe 10 o'clock and again in philadelphia just a little sprinkle in the process of saying bye-bye to areas of center city and pretty soon northeast philadelphia. as we take a look outside we have cloudy skies of course over the commodore barry bridge near chester and maybe a little bit damp still in some spots across the region but most of your rain down to the south and east getting on out of here. 67 degrees is the current temperature, dewpoint is up there at 63 an indication of how moist the atmosphere is
6:39 am
when you get those two numbers close to each other. winds out of the west at 8 miles per hour, just a slight breeze. future tracker6 picking up the rain story and it does look like between now and about 9 o'clock or 10 o'clock most of this is pushing off the coast. the other thing we'll be watching today is the reemergence of sunshine to the west and pushing into philadelphia as the afternoon goes on and by 5 o'clock or 6 o'clock this afternoon we might be brightening up fairly well down at the shore as well. your temperatures are going to treat us fairly nicely today. 66 by 8 o'clock, still a similar number by 10 o'clock as throws clouds are still around. but as the clouds break, those numbers rise. 69 degrees by noon, 74 by 3 o'clock and that high of 75 right in there around 4 o'clock this afternoon. 74 under the sun by 5 o'clock. high temperatures across the region mid 70's from philadelphia up to allentown and low 70's as we get closer to the shore. pretty comfortable from north to south. we are getting into a pattern where we're going to have a chance of showers around, though, for the next several days. wednesday i think mostly is going to be pretty nice with the best chance of showers late in the day or at night.

and then thursday it looks like it could be a pretty good chance of rain maybe even a couple of soaking downpours during the day. 50 percent chance of some lingering showers on friday and then less and less as you go through the weekend. it's all because of what we call a cutoff low pressure center that's a low that doesn't really have an attachment to the jet stream. it can't move through quickly. it will take wednesday through friday for it to get from chicago to our neck of the woods and probably not away from us until sometime sunday so that instability causing low is the problem over the next several days with some periods of rain possible. 75 degrees clouds to sun breezy today. rain leaving quickly way passing front. tomorrow sun back to clouds, 75 is your high and at night in particular there could be some showers. then thursday cloudy with occasional rain an high of 69 degrees. then we get into a mostly cloudy sky cover on friday and saturday with a spotty shower both days probably a little better chance on friday than saturday and then sunday clouds and sun. we can't rule out a.m. spotty shower but as you saw a moment ago only about a 10 percent
