view, show you the lehigh valley, back edge now just about to move over the northeast extension through montgomery county, rain still coming down bucks county, just few light showers here. close up view shows that few spotty showers pick up by the radar, in philadelphia, and delaware county. south jersey, is clearing up, it is right along the parkway now about to move through atlantic city just light rain here. now, the next hour or so swings through, more or less out. with keel air aloft, get the heating of the day. that will could kick off these showers. just few light isolated showers, mainly north and west of philadelphia, but passing shower likely, certainly not severe like yesterday, certainly not giving us a lot of rain, which will lead to flooding like bee saw early this morning. mid 60s and lower 70s, it is muggy, though, it is very
humid out there, a lot of the watt their came down with the rain, still in the atmosphere so bit muggy to start the day r as soon as we get sunshine, will push up to the 80s today. talk about the holiday weekends, storms moving out. we are getting some dry air in from the north. nice and clear here over the great lakes. all the way through pretty much all of our area, still some rain to the south. this will be on thursday. and storm moving along this boundary here, could pass by, not only thursday night to early friday, but again friday night to early saturday, so maybe some light rain, especially through the south before it all pushes out, and clears out, by the end of the holiday weaken here, so moth complete wash out. we do have to put some rain in the forecast, not only to the south, on thursday, to friday, but again friday to saturday, some morning rain, especially south of the city, temperatures will be a little cooler, only into the upper 70s, saturday, sunday we clear out, mix of sun and clouds, monday, and tuesday, into the mid 80s again. few showers back in the forecast, on tuesday.
roadways let's check in with bob. >> hey, dave. depending upon where you begin and end your trip, obviously some left over delays, and obviously some areas still getting hit with the rain, as he just showed us on doppler. here is the latest from septa. there has been some changes we kind of re-rack the deck here service suspended now on the paoli-thorndale line. because of downed wires. that is an update. that is the bad news part of the update. the good news is that the airport and wilmington lines service has been restored, but looking anywhere upward of one hour delays, on the two lines here, where service has been restored, more so hour delay on the wilmington line, airports little less than that but service suspended right now on the paoli thorndale line, due to downed wires, and that's all part of the amtrak power issue that we've been telling you about with those storms that came through on the overnight. here is a live look at the fatal accident right now on the schuylkill expressway, westbound, only the left lane is open. as you approach montgomery
drive, an accident happened about 3:00 this morning, it was a one-car crash right around the time those heavy storms were coming through with the thunder and the lightning and the heavy downpours, unfortunately, two people confirmed dead, a third person recovering at a local hospital. but, let's go to our next jam cam here. we are bumper to bumper to bumper leaving philadelphia heading west on the schuylkill expressway. if you are coming through town, or leaving town, right now, and trying to get west, your best bet using either the kelly drive or the martin luther king drive and then those drives, watch it, how curvey they are, you have the downed trees branches, possibly some flooding in the right lanes around the drains. we had the same situation on the schuylkill expressway at conshy, and at belmont. both of those high water situations have receded so okay there. but an accident and traffic light out along route 38 at route 130 and close in the west conshy along balligomingo road, all of the heavy rain
bringing down mud slide blocked at route 23, probably shall for the next couple of days chris lauren, back to you. >> thanks so much. phillies have new president nbanhl opened free agency today, sixers and flyers look to rebuild. so what franchise do you have the most confidence in? going forward? >> let's ask big daddy graham. let's go start with the big four teams go one to ten, ten being most confident. start with the phillies, so much going on with them now. >> oh, this is how we're doing it because i actually put them in order and as you can see my scribble, the order is changed five times in the last five minutes. >> go where you want to go, my man. >> right now i'm the least confident in phils. i like every move they made. i did including getting rid of the insane thing where mccann on would be the interim coach to maybe this weekend, they fixed that. i like macphail, i love that hire. i like what i've seen in in
middleton so far. all first impressions, i like all of the moves they made. but wow they're in a hole. so they would be the least confident. followed by, and i notice been a while followed by the eagles. and until i see bradford, on that field really producing and playing great i'm shaky about them. i'm not even sure who he is throwing it to. they don't have a star wide receiver, even in bradford, is great. so for next year, and i don't know how long kelsey going to hang around either, i got the eagles so far at third. right now i got the sixers at second. think about this now if embiid did turn out to be something special, and you goat noel, you got okay for now, there is a team that could cause some damage. they really could. if they just bring in one guard, and if brown is the guy that can figure out how to make this three headed monster
work, they could be something to be reckoned w but the team is just so bizarre that i'm saying about a team that hasn't won a stanley cup since 1975. but, i like ron hextall a lot. and i believe they do have the goaltender. and you know that sport lauren chris, it is a wacky sport. your goaltender gets hot. when you go into the playoffs, you can really make some damage. i keep changing the order every five minutes. the phils i know are in last, right now even though i love the moves they've made, they are just in a serious hole that's going to take a lot of getting out of. after that, it is almost a coin flip. but it is a great question. it really is. >> i was going to say he could take all of those cards just throw them up until the air and pick one. >> exactly right, lauren? we have no idea what will happen. we have to clock our fingers chip kelly made good decisions in the off season we'll see in the fall. and the six letters win more than they lost.
>> i know chris is happy. i know chris is hey, of course nick foles isn't here. >> exactly right. >> we've got sanchez. >> bradford, i got barkley. >> oh, wait, tim tebow. >> tebow forgot about tebow, how can i forget tebow? >> big daddy do you have a dvd -- >> did i that show about my dad, it is right here, last call, for those of you who did not get a chance, to see the last performance of this show, it is now on dvd. go to big daddy graham. com. there are 5,000 on ebay, but 20 bucks at big daddy graham. com. >> big dad say big deal. thank you so much. >> we love you. >> big daddy mentioned the new phillies team president andy macphail. he'll be in our studio coming up this morning about 7:30. do you have a question for mr. macphail? use the #fox29goodday. he will be here as we said right around 7:30 this morning. it is a good guest for us to talk with him, what he sees for the future team. >> coming up driver in an s.u.v. buses through a gate,
barely makes it through a draw bridge. what he was doing behind the wheel right before that bridge went up. we got the new tempur-flex and it's got the spring and bounce of a traditional mattress. you sink into it, but you can still move around. now that i have a tempur-flex, i can finally get a good night's sleep. (vo) change your sleep. change your life. change to tempur-pedic.

>> stay folk you dollars implication action, he hit it at different time, rammed p upped went up talking about fatal accident. >> well the bridge closed for five hours crews replaced the traffic arm the driver plowed right through. >> cloe call. >> hail, lot of flooding, and we're in the in the clear just yet. more bad weather could be coming, dave warren has more on your forecast, plus police finds the car after woman who was brutally murdered in mt. airy, and investigators find what they think is the murder weapon. still searching for her killer. live report coming up at 6:00. chris, alec, up next on good day.
