26 in the poconos. 36 in wilmington. 42 in millville. winds are dropping down out of the north today but they're fairly light, only about five to 10 miles per hour winds overall. and as we go through the day it is going to be chilly and very similar to yesterday. 36 degrees by 7:00. by noon, 48 and a high of 51 degrees at 3 o'clock before we slide to 49. now, you'll notice one difference. we're not going to be dropping as chilly as quickly as we go into the evening hours. by 7 o'clock, not much different from the high. still holding 48 degrees. and that's because mild air is going to be coming up from the south overnight and we're only going to get to a low overnight probably in the mid 40's in philadelphia, the low 40's in philadelphia. look for a mix of clouds with some sunny breaks today. and then after midnight tonight, some rain arrives. we'll talk more about that coming up along with the exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, karen. that's ahead. >> all right, dave. you know when you travel early in the morning you expect a smooth ride. not the case. look at this traffic here on 42 northbound. are you jammed right now. this is a live look northbound near market street in camden county. the problem is up ahead on
6:02 am
676. we have construction that's been blocking two lanes and that's what's creating the delay on 42 northbound. it's kind of spilling back on that. the construction is scheduled to clear right around now so we'll see if it clears on time and maybe this delay can ease. but in the meantime you're jammed on 42 northbound looking near market street. you can see how heavy you are at this point so careful for that as you're traveling through camden county, new jersey. here's a live look at 422 at trooper. no overnight work here so you're moving a lot better. that's your eastbound traffic right there headed towards king of prussia. maybe a little bit of building volume but not major problem. we have 422 eastbound reopened. it had been shut down. they had overnight construction that was running late. it just reopened now so if you're moving here between ben franklin highway split and route 100 it's looking better. upper gwynedd an accident just cleared on sumneytown pike at beaver street, tam. >> thank you, karen. following breaking news out of egg harbor city. four juveniles escape from a

6:04 am
car, slams into a jeep and then it continues into a home on the 900 block of berger street. you see a vehicle with flashing lights after. in the top right corner of the screen you'll see what appears to be the teens getting out of the vehicle. police say shortly after midnight four teens escaped from harbor fields youth detention facility after overtaking correctional officers there. how they did it is unclear but they did get the keys to one of the personal vehicles of one of those corrections officers. one of the officers was injured. they were taken to the hospital and will be okay. one of the teens is 18 but he committed crimes when he was 17, so by law, law enforcement is not allowed to release his name. one is 17 and two are 16 years old. none are believed to have ties to this area. all are considered dangerous. investigators won't go into details about their past crimes but again, they are considered dangerous. they said based on those past crimes. numerous k-9 teams are sweeping the neighborhoods.
6:05 am
there's also officers from a number of departments. they're positioned at nearby bus and train stations as well, any of the arteries out of this area. state police helicopter was out trying to find them overnight. here is a description of the teens from the acting sheriff of atlantic county. >> first one's a black male about 190 pounds, last seen wearing white boxers, cream colored shirt, excuse me i can't see, flip-flops and the second subject is a black male five-seven, 160 pounds wearing cream thermal pants with white boxers thermal shirt possibly white t-shirt. third suspect a white mail, about six-two, 175, basically the same ekes description just wearing socks. the fourth suspect wearing khaki pants and a black polo ayc embroidered on it and
6:06 am
possibly pink socks. they were last seen in the area of saint louis avenue in egg harbor city. >> and the acting sheriff says based on their clothing description it's very likely that those teens are cold and if they don't have a ride they might be looking for clothes making it possible they could break into houses. they really don't know what their plans are so they're just urging nearby residents to use caution and call 911 if you see anything suspicious but again, word has come down that egg harbor city schools will be closed today because of all of this. we're live in egg harbor city, katherine scott, channel6 "action news. >> thanks for all your great reporting there cath inare run and the greater egg harbor regional schools will be closed today for the same reasons. we'll see if they can find these juveniles. we'll check in with you in a little bit. the bullet went through her right leg and then through her left along the 1500 block of rosalie street.

[laughter] >> as we take a look outside we have sky6 and over the ben franklin bridge there's a hint of some clearing going on right now and we are expecting a mix of sun and clouds earlily and that probably more of a clouds and sunny breaks mix later today.
6:09 am
temperatures are very similar to yesterday. we're at 33 in allentown. 34 in reading. even trenton 34 so pretty chilly out there and it's not like that 37-degree mark in philadelphia is much better. 42 degrees in millville and cape may so a little bit milder down in south jersey. winds are on the light side this morning. up in the lehigh valley, we're looking for some sun mixing with clouds overall today. cool conditions with a high of 50 degrees. down the shore same story. you'll have clouds, some sun at times and there could be portions of the day like yesterday where the sun really breaks out rather nicely. 55 degrees is the high there. and in philadelphia, clouds, some sun, cool conditions with a high of 51 degrees. and that's right around where we wound up yesterday. yesterday's official high at the airport was 50. again winds are going to be low today, six to 12 miles per hour. then overnight tonight more clouds build in. 46 the overnight low in philadelphia and 42 in some suburbs. tomorrow morning when you wake up unlike the last couple mornings it won't be as cool. however there will be rain arriving after midnight tonight and some areas could be a little bit damp in the
6:10 am
morning. future tracker6 starting the story at 12:30 in the morning on thursday, this is overnight tonight, even when cecily is on at 11 o'clock, we probably won't have much going on in the way of radar but as we go overnight into 6:00 in the morning, we probably will have some showers to show you here on storm tracker6 live double scan. it looks like the best chance of that is in the northern half of the region but even if you're down south i would tune in just to make sure your roads are dry. looks like that gets out of here pretty quickly and then later in the day tomorrow we get milder and the sun starts to come back but it's also going to get kind of windy and that's the call for tomorrow, milder with a high of 58 degrees. that front pulling through, though. 35 miles per hour afternoon wind gusts so clouds give way to sun, it's milder but it will be on the blustery side tomorrow. and looking ahead, we're just eight days away from thanksgiving. we'll be getting that in the seven day for you pretty soon. 40 days away from christmas and 47 days away from new year's day. how about all that? it's all coming. 51 degrees is today's high in your exclusive accuweather 7-day, clouds mixing with some
6:11 am
sun, light rain overnight tonight into thursday morning and then thursday windy and milder with a high of 58. 50 sunny and cooler on friday and saturday still our big ticket precipitation day. not that it's going to be heavy rain but at some point clouds will build in the morning and then we'll see rain arriving during the day. it will be light probably arriving before the end of the temple game. we'll see about that. and then on sunday, 50 degrees with clouds in the morning for the philadelphia marathon and some sun coming back in the afternoon. down to 45, brisk and chilly on monday. >> there it goes again. >> yup. >> thank you david. 6:11 now. florida authorities worry a serial killer has struck again. s.w.a.t. teams are now going door to door conducting an armed search. >> new this morning a trendy clothing company is warning shoppers about a security breach. karen. >> we've got a new accident just popped up on the schuylkill expressway eastbound near gladwyne. we can see it right now blocking the left lane and quickly jamming up traffic. it's not our only new accident. i'll have the rundown for you next. >> ♪

6:14 am
>> because of the escape of four juveniles considered to be dangerous from a youth detention center egg harbor school district and greater egg has been bore regional school district closed today. these four attacking a corrections officer stealing his personal vehicle hitting other cars before smashing into a wall fleeing the car. they've got police and k-9 out there trying to catch the four but they are considered to be violent and dangerous so again, the egg harbor city school district and the greater egg harbor regional school district they are both closed. our katherine scott is on the
6:15 am
scene gathering details. she was first to get there. she's got exclusive video. she'll be bringing you a live report shortly. >> karen rogers has a problem on the schuylkill. >> yeah, an accident that just popped up on the schuylkill involving it looks like three vehicles. police are now on the scene. they hadn't yet arrived when i showed you this shot last. this is the schuylkill eastbound. the accident was in the left lane. they just pushed it off to the side but it doesn't take much to get a jam on the schuylkill so eastbound traffic on the schuylkill is already jammed from conshohocken to gladwyne. the accident is on the schuylkill eastbound at gladwyne so as you head towards belmont the left lane was blocked. we see now they've pushed it off to the side so watch for that one on the schuylkill. also another new accident just popped up in upper providence township and this in montgomery county as we switch over to second street and old state road. watch for an accident that just popped up there. we had a delay in new jersey on 42. as we look at this traffic you can see it's still pretty jammed on 42 northbound. this is a live look near market street and i'm
6:16 am
wondering if there's a new accident within this. let's take a closer look. i know it's at the bottom of your screen so it's a little hard to see. you see what i'm looking at right here? all of a sudden in the center lane we're seeing these cars not move. i think an accident might have just popped up here. 42 northbound. we had construction blocking the two left lanes at 676. so it very quickly led to a delay. the construction has since cleared but 42 northbound is jammed looking live at market street and it looks like we have an accident in one of the center lanes so just kind of adding to the delay on 42. things are starting to get busy here. also in mount laurel, burlington county, an accident southbound on the new jersey turnpike past exit four. traffic at times is slowing past the scene. so, if you're on the new jersey turnpike heading towards route 73, you're dealing with that. we also have report of an accident i found on the waze app here on i-95 southbound near caster and we're looking at some slower speeds on i-95 southbound near caster because of that. so, a few problems coming up to us right now, matt. >> thank you, karen.
6:17 am
this was the scene several weeks ago as strong and intense flames destroyed one of the most popular restaurant's on philadelphia's south street. now the community is coming together to help the owners and employees of bridget foy's. dozens of restaurants have planned a fire relief benefit. it will happen from 6 o'clock to 9 o'clock at headhouse square. tickets are still on sale. go to my twitter feed and you can go a link where you can purchase them. investigators are still looking into how the fire started. >> former philly roy roy hallady was remembered as an even better man. a celebration of life was held at the phillies spring training facility in clearwater florida yesterday. many spoke about halladay's on the field accomplishments and all remembered him as an amazing husband father friend and teammate. >> he was beautiful inside and out. without saying a word seems always to have just the right thing to say. when he did speak, people
6:18 am
listened. >> halladay died last tuesday when a private plane that he was piloting crashed into the gulf of mexico. he was just 40 years old. >> in today's tech bytes, the drone on this year's list of worst toys. >> the group called world against toys causing harm is highlighting the danger of 10 popular toys. among them this spider-man drone. the group says moving blades could be dangerous for children. no comment from the toy's maker. forever 21 is warning customers their credit card data may be in the hands of hackers. >> the retailer investigating a data breach between march and october of this year and there's new evidence just how tough go pro cameras can be. >> this stunning video was taken by a camera that moments later was engulfed in lava from a volcano in hawaii. the owner apparently then retrieved the go pro chisel owed off the hardened lava and then took the memory card out and as you can see, the video still works just fine.
6:19 am
>> impressively. >> those are your tech bytes. they took forever to pay you, right? no, i got paid right away, but... at the very end of it all, my agent... wouldn't even call you back, right? no, she called to see if i was happy. but if i wasn't happy with my claim experience for any reason, they'd give me my money back, no questions asked. can you believe that? no. the claim satisfaction guarantee, only from allste. switching to allstate is worth it.
