shades of green, that's just the light rain. but there is a darker shade of green now pushing in through chester county and getting very close to philadelphia. that's somewhat steadier rain and even the light stuff is making roads wet. and then we've got that yellow farther to the west. that's steadier rain still that is on the way a little bit later on. as we take a look at the wide view lots of clouds along with that rain and once this currents batch gets through, look at all that additional rain extending all the way back to the west of washington. it will be this evening before we get to the tail end of all of this precip. and as we take a look at temperatures, again, milder than the last couple of mornings, 49 degrees in philadelphia, 48 in allentown. and in the 50's in wilmington, millville and cape may. but the rain is coming down. winds not all that strong just yet but we expect the breezes to pick up a little bit later on as well. you can see them getting a little bit stronger down by the ocean. and as we go through the day as the rain starts to get a little bit steadier here on the terrace 53 degrees by 7 o'clock. 58 by 10 o'clock. 62 mild by noon and a high of 65 and still holding the low 60's this evening.

6:40 am
again, some of that darker shades of green and even some yellow, steadier cells continuing to push in. rain is just kind of damp in philadelphia right now but they will be getting a little bit damper and if you get those steadier downpours with leaves blocking some of the drains you'll have to look out when you get one of those steady downpours today and tomorrow for some backups onto the roadway, some of that poor drainage area flooding. 49 degrees right now mild this morning. winds are light. we expect the winds to pick up later today and it will become rather breezy through the afternoon. in terms of rain between now and 9:00 it looks like just about everybody is seeing this. there could be some steady rain at times as is highlighted by yellow. more of the same by 3 o'clock. i'm telling to you keep the rain gear handy with the kids on the way home from school and for the evening commute it won't be as widespread or filled in rain but the roads will still be wet and there still could be some pockets of heavier precipitation. by the time 11 o'clock rolls around and cecily is on the air she'll probably have a few lingering showers to show you at that point. over the next 12 hours it's mild but it is gray and dreary
6:41 am
54 degrees by 8 o'clock, 62 by noon and 65 at 3 o'clock and probably holding the low 60's straight through most of the evening hours. but as you just saw periods of rain straight into the evening. high temperatures across the region 60 in allentown, 61 in reading. mid 60's down through philadelphia and wilmington and dover. 63 in millville and if you're closer to the coast today, you'll be stuck in the upper 50's. tomorrow we start out cloudy but the latest model projections have another batch of rain coming in pretty quickly maybe before the end of the morning commute and again there could be some pockets of heavy rain tomorrow, maybe even a rumble of thunder. there's the noon view and then it's still kind of damp with off and on rain straight through 5 o'clock and straight on into the late evening hours. this rain probably tapers off before that most of you are awake on thursday morning. by the time the next few days the rain is all said and done we could get it up to a couple of inches. that's a lot but we need the rain. your exclusive accuweather 7-day two mild ones. today 65, tomorrow 69. again periods of rain today. periods of rain tomorrow.
6:42 am
some of this could be heavy maybe even a rumble of thunder on wednesday and do be careful of that backup in poor drainage area where that water comes down in a hurry and can't quite get into the storm drain. breezy partly sunny and cooler on thursday 58. friday sunny and chilly and down to 53 and then the weekend. temple is down in maryland. it will be a similar day down there. we're going to go 51 here 78 i think it's about 52 in annapolis for that big game at plan to on saturday. 51 the afternoon high in philadelphia and then 49 on sunday. some sun in the morning but it now looks like there could be some clouds building up during the day and maybe some afternoon rain. >> okay, thank you david. it is 6:42 and the trip of a lifetime takes a detour when a woman on vacation sees a live video feed of burglars who are at that moment ransacking her house. >> passengers panic when a woman jumps out of a plane before it comes to a complete stop. karen. >> we've got a new accident right here on the blue route. this is southbound near media swarthmore and you can see police and emergency crews blocking the right lane so traffic really slow in this
