>> that will wake you up rid? >> yes, i can only imagine my dog at home. oh boy. and anyway, here's the severe thunderstorm warning in effect right in you until 4:45, for delaware county, parts of chester, little part of new castle county, rid there and then part of montgomery county and philadelphia, as well, i think this will move as these storms move. look at all of this lightning showing up on our sweeps of ultimate doppler radar now we set it into motion. there is the severe thunderstorm warning and line of very strong, very soaking thunderstorms moving through right now so a lot of rain in a very short period of time through chester county through delaware county, new castle county woe just mentioned, headed toward montgomery and headed toward us here in the city of philadelphia. doesn't look like too many of them will be across the river in new jersey, but as we zoom in just little bit closer, look out if you're in chester heights, probably starting to hear the thunder right now here we are in philadelphia,
about to get those severe thunderstorms. so they are happening as we speak. we may not even need to tell but them, you can probably hear t temperatures on the muggy side, everywhere this morning, 75 gross, in philadelphia, 65 mount pocono, 72 in trenton 57 degrees in wildwood. as we get started on the day the foxcast has a high of 86 degrees, on and off rain, this is a very similar to what we had yesterday i think until midnight, we will still have some showers lingering we'll talk about what happens after that. and some ten's in our seven day forecast, just ahead. 4:02 the time. bob kelly continues his vacation so traffic includes a lot of wet roadways this morning. and we are on the schuylkill expressway, just past the vine, where there is construction there this morning. that will be slowing you down. now we check the route 42 freeway, that roadway is pretty much dry at the moment. maybe a slightly wet but the
real downpours as we showed are you mostly in delaware, chester counties right now we check the northeast extension northbound near quakertown, construction there has left lane blocked finally there aren't any delays at the airport, but storms are coming, so check with that airline before you make it out the door this morning. lauren? >> sue, thanks so much. police say elderly woman was hit by stray bullet overnight while she was just sitting outside on her porch. >> she is 79 years old relaxing at her north philadelphia home when she was shot. steve keeley at the round house report on. that will steve, what's the latest on her condition? what do we know. >> the latest on the weather no-stop lightning show, so if it looks like somebody is taking pictures around us, that's just mother nature with the lightning show every 42nd or so, no rain so far on the way in, but the last half hour non-stop lightning every two seconds. so, more worries right now hopefully about struck by lightning than hit by stray
bullet again. going to the video from last night, isn't too long ago, only six hours ago, 79 years old woman out in this heat just trying to relax on summer night out on her porch privately. we've seen this before, saw little girl killed last summer getting her hair done out on a porch on a friday night getting hit and killed with a stray bullet. >> this woman fortunately is going to be okay. so she's out there, it is not just her hit by bullets, one of her neighbor's cars, you see, took few bullets in the roof and the windshield, and they found casings all over the street. they have no idea, of course, nobody saw or knows anything out here on the street here on north 28th street last night around 10:30, in the 2800 block. so this woman's okay. >> she is at einstein einstein medical, stable right now and police unfortunately despite a lot of people out a lot of bullets fired nobody says they saw anything out here, and as bad as this is, i tweeted one-story yesterday, a woman similar age out in
florida, thought she got hit in the leg with a fireworks she was still in pain week later, turns out yesterday she figured out somebody shot her and she had bullet in her leg for the past week. it doesn't just happen here in philly it, happens all over the place fortunately there is stray bullet went low and not up high like it did last summer in a tragedy. >> on police arrival they found 79 year old female, shot one time in the right leg. medics took her to temple hospital she is presently in stable condition. turns out this 79 year old woman, was sitting on a chair on her front porch of her property where she lives just enjoying the weather when shots rang out and she realized she was shot in the right leg. now, based on balistic evidence we are know at least two shots were fired from semiautomatic weapon. we found two spent shell casings on the highway we don't have description on the shooter at this time. we don't have a motive for why this individual or individuals were firing shots.
but we believe that the 79 year old victim some innocent and just struck by a stray bullet. >> well, even though there is no witnesses fortunately there must have been trouble here before or neighbor of hers must have suspected some trouble, because they got in surveillance advice tell installed. police will look at that hopefully see somebody coming or going or even firing a gun on the surveillance video. so again more violence here in the city, in the summer, and fortunately this one's not going to be terrible one like we've seen in the past. lauren chris? >> let's hope more witnesses come forward too. steve, thanks. >> just after 11:30 last night, philadelphia police responded to number of shooting calls to the 2100 block of east ann street when officers got to the port richmond neighborhood, they found 31 year old man shot in the stomach inside a house. medics took the victim to the hospital to be treated. the shooter a 65 year old man turned his gun over to police. he said the victim threatened him with a shovel. >> 4:06.
happening today former president bill clinton will be in philadelphia to address the naacp convention to talk about civil rights challenges. the former president has spoken at the organization convention several times before. former president is scheduled to speak around 10:00 this morning. clinton's address comes just one day after president obama spoke at the naacp convention yesterday. now the president's focus was criminal justice reformment the president called for legislation that would end mandatory minimum prison send fences for non-violent drug crimes, also spoke about the disparity and how minorities or the poor are treated in the criminal justice system. and addressed poor prison conditions including rape and solitary confinement saying the punishment has no place in a civilized society. >> so criminal justice system isn't as smart as it should be. it is not keeping up as safe as it should be. it is not as fair as it should be. mass incarceration makes our country worse off.
we feed to do something about it. >> what the president did about it was on monday commuting the sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders. tomorrow he will become the first sitting us president to advice ate prison as he continues his focus on criminal justice reform. meanwhile, new jersey governor and presidential candidate chris christie plans to give speech tomorrow in camden focused on criminal justice reform. it will be the first policy speech christie delivers in new jersey. the speech will focus on how to help non-violent drug offenders reclaim their lives. >> meanwhile, we are expected to hear more from the president today about iran's nuclear deal. president obama will try to sell the agreement white house new conference, to begin celebrating a draft resolution at the un authorize it nuclear deal with iran. president said the deal will cut off all pathways iran currently has to develop a nuclear weapon. would require iran to dismantle much of the nuclear program in order to avoid sanction that is have hurt
their economy. international inspectors can press for eye reign facilities, is not guaranteed, many republicans, some democrats, say they disagree with the deal. >> i believe in their desperation the president john kerry works make a bad deal. it looks very much like he made -- they've made a worse deal than even we had feared. >> lawmakers allowed 06 days to either reject or or approve the agreement. it promises to be a tough and lengthy battle. the president saidel veto any ' temp to block his deal. >> philadelphia police officer wounded in a off duty shooting is now in trouble with the law. officer robert penn pennsylvania turned himself into police after a warrant was issued for his arrest. police say an internal investigation revealed penn paid his former wife's brother, charles maze, to provide false information about the 2014 shoot to go local newspapers. investigator say the officer wanted maze to implicate his current wife in the shooting. officer penn has been suspended with the intent to
dismiss. he and maze now face several charges. >> we now know who the bicyclist was who died after a driver him him. investigators say 17 year old tyrone tillman riding his bike sunday along the 4,000 block of north second street in juniata park. they say driver going the wrong way down the street hit him. a woman believed to be the driver did give police a statement. but has not yet been charged. >> new details about the arrest of former eagles quarterback donovan mcnabb. now say he had blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit when arrested him with dui last month. mcnabb's car rear ended another vehicle. police cited and released mcnabb. he played 13 years in the nfl after philadelphia drafted him, second overall pick in 1999. so you may have noticed more and more people riding bikes in large part because of the city new bike share program. >> but what two riders did was nothing short of shocking. it was down right dangerous. fox 29's jennifer joyce live in center city with the video you just have to see.
