>> another day of rain, with day after day, what's this day, three, four of rain, we're starting to see it pile up little bit in place that is are near bodies of water. so, for evening high tide, between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m., coastal flood advisory, all of the areas you see he lighted in green here, kent, sussex, cumberland, cape may, atlantic, ocean and half of burlington, so what this means is when it is high tide those back base, especially at the shore, could flood little bit. not specking major flooding but you need to know about it, remember these three words, we showed them to you, unsettled weather week, it is proving to be true, because we have a stationary system that's, remember, we told you would be meandering up and down through our area, well, it is down right now, but there is low pressure system moving along that front keeping us damp and dreary, another cold front after that, a lot going on with with heather, see there is another low that will ride up that front, and probably
another one before the work week is through. >> as we zoom into couple of areas, as we see heavier rain use the storm tracker tool because it is cool. areas of chester county, probably heavier rain. and here is a cell off dewey beach. if it holds together, and sometimes they don't over the water. >> more rain, more clouds, when it is not raining, not seeing too much of thinning of these clouds throughout the day, you see, rain specially north and west of the city, throughout the rest of the morning. and more rolling in this afternoon, as another pressure comes to visit us, showers off on and off throughout the rest

delaware, wind still mostly coming out of the east or the southeast, and that means, we still have that on-shore flow, more moisture in the air, so, damp, dreary, drizzly, if we see little sunshine, it will be a great cause of celebration, but probably won't last, clouds and showers throughout most of the day, high temperature around 58 degrees, that's all we can expect, we're supposed to be at 70. when will we get there? we will let you know because we will have the seven day forecast for you next time. bob kelly? >> the only sunshine we will see here today is di, our floor director. >> yes. >> good morning, everybody, 43:00; you think you're having a bad start to the day? look at this mess, tractor trail he accident now downtown here on the vine street expressway. it is the -- it would be the westbound schuylkill expressway ramp to come into center city. it is a tight squeeze to begin with. and now weaver a crash here.
so the tractor-trailer blocking the entire ramp, and these folks here are basically stuck now. see them backing up, trying to go around the concrete barrier? because this is one of those, what they call, the cattle shoot. once you pass that concrete median there, you are kind of stuck. so, access to the vine expressway right now, blocked, from the schuylkill, anybody leaving south philadelphia, coming over the walt walt, and trying to get into center city, you're not going to be able to do so on the vine. you will have to exit at south street is going to be your best bet. we'll see how that will all turn out. because they have to back up a tow truck, even to try to pull him out of there. sue just showed us on the radar getting hit with heavy downpours rolling through chester county. that will impact the speedometers on the bypass, the pennsylvania turnpike, 202, all the way up toward king of prussia. north on i9 # a, penndot crews are still working out here on
the ramps to the blue route. so the 95 northbound ramp to 476 remains blocked, for, say, another half hour or so. market frankford line, broad street subway, still using shuttle buses until about 5:00 this morning. outside we go, live look here, watch as the cars come by. you'll get that spray kicking up. just one of those, again, i like to call it the wiper wednesday, actually it is a wiper week here, using the wipers all week long, so it is casino of carbon copy what we had to deal with yesterday. the ben franklin, wet, at the moment. no big delays but we had huge delay yesterday. i think with the weather, everybody just needs to slow it down, and of course we'll see the delays pick up a little quicker. possible weather delays down at the airport, do check with the airline if you have a flight scheduled there today, chris, lauren, back to you. >> following breaking news for you. two police-involved shootings overnight happening within two hours. >> let's back that second shooting first, which was deadly. steve keeley live on the scene in overbrook with more on. >> this hi, steve.
>> reporter: well the if i cuase 12:48, overbrook and lancaster avenue, pretty big intersection, part of it, re-opens after the first police on the scene have just left. so, lancaster is reopened. overbrook is shut. now apparently it happened on that side, and what we are talking about it looks like car stop with a van. police are telling us in the preliminary report to us that the van driver did not stop, and follow commands, but instead, kept going at the officer who fired his gun in self-defense fearing his life was in jeopardy and about to be run over by this van. fired at least six shots that we know of. you can see the aftermath. the van driver was shot and crashed into all of the parallel parked cars here next to this church which caused the chain reaction accident. you see the passenger driver door, we have internal affairs, also the philadelphia
homicide detectives on there is as well, and again, only three and a half hours old but right now the word is that the van driver for whatever reason during a normal car stop around 12:30, refused to follow the command and refuse to completely stop. and started going toward one of the officers on the scene that far car stop. chris, lauren? >> steve, thanks so much. now to the first officer-shoved shooting, philadelphia police telling it is all started with a report after man shooting a gun in the air around 11:00 last night in southwest philadelphia. when police arrived to the 5300 block of grays avenue, they saw a man with a gun, police asked the man to drop the weapon. he refused and said firing at officers, those officers returned fire, one bullet hitting the suspect in both legs. no officers were injured in that shooting. the suspect was taken to the hospital after a short chase. >> big development in politics. in the race for the white house, senator ted cruz has dropped out of the race after losing to the indianna primary to donald trump last night. trump's victory made it
virtually impossible for cruz to block the businessman from clinic clinic the republican party nominationment trump spoke about his big win in moving forward. >> i didn't expect this. i didn't expect it. and what ted did is real a very brave thing to do. and a great thing to do. because we want to bring unity to the republican party. we're going after hillary clinton. she will not and great president. she will not and good president. she will be a poor president. >> there is john kasich. he remains in the race. but before last night, cruz had vowed to stay in the race through the final primaries. but now reality has set in for cruz. >> from the beginning i've said that i would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. tonight i'm sorry to say it appears that path has been for
closed. together we left it all on the field in indianna. >> meanwhile the democratic side how about this? bernie sanders wins the democratic primary in indianna and 57 delegates there. he told fox 29 last weakest's staying with his campaign through california's primary next month. >> okay, we will wait and see what happens. dave kinchen with more on two philly school officers caught in the middle of a fight. >> that's right. they were trying to break up this fight. and they're dragged into it, two officers injured, we'll tell you how they're doing after the break. but first, bob kelly? >> dave, you're out in the rain, and the rape impacting the -- the rain impacting the roadways, construction crews still out on i-95. and a tractor-trailer accident on the schuylkill expressway. we'll have all of the details, sue has the forecast whether we come right back.
4:40 this morning, philadelphia resource officer recovering from broken jaw this morning after being attacked while trying to break up a fight. >> he wasn't attacked by students, but adult. dave kinchen on this now from northeast philly. dave, good morning. >> good morning to you. three adults had jumped into this whole situation. let's lay all of this out for you. >> this all started, we're told, when two officers were dealing with a different situation here at northeast high school, when they saw a fight. they went over to try to break it up. they were dragged into that very fight they were trying to break up. cell phone video recorded the fight at a bus stop at castor
and cottman, near northeast high school. couple of blocks away. investigators say two philadelphia school police officers tried to break up that fight between a student from northeast high and another from woodrow wilson middle school when three adults came up and started viciously attacking the officers. we spoke to a witness who says he tried to help the officers. >> all the sudden he was rushing me, all the sudden everybody turning to the cop and start beating him. and i don't know what's going on. this is a really nice neighborhood. and i never encounter stuff like this before, i have no idea. >> so he said that the officers actually told him no, no, no, don't help, call 911, that's when he did, and philadelphia police say they're looking for two men in the video. take a good look at these still images here. if you recognize them, give investigators a call. meantime we're told the person who record that video turned the video over to school, authorities say they can investigate additionally
several septa buses actually have that video, because they were driving by, they have cameras and recorded the fight. we're told this all stemmed from previous incident relate to go flag football. hopefully these officers recover okay. >> let's hope so, dave kinchen, thank you. local dad takes desperate measures, desperate times, posing critical question on road sign side. he needs a kidney. surprise group that's stepping in to help save his life.
