normally when we show you rain and way it has been when it rain every other day the is moving from west to east. that is not is what happening here. hot thinks a coastal storm so the flow is an on shore flow, and meaning that the rain is moving in off the ocean. that is where the storm is, so that is why we have put those arrows there so, for instance, there is a heavy downpour that we have seen in the ocean, and that should make its way to atlantic city by 6:54 this morning if that holds together. and we will of course keep an eye on it. we will see a lot of this yellow here in charleston, chester county, west goshen, not too far from west chester, chadds ford is getting an heavy downpour as well. we will move further to the south, we will see heavy rain from dover, down through seaford delaware and delaware beaches especially bethenny and rehoboth getting heavy rain. now we will see heavy rain starting to build up in cape
6:16 am
may. move to the north it looks like that one downpour has moved out of allentown and moved toward the north east and then continues to rain very heavily in the lehigh valley. now because of this morning's rain, by evening high tied, which is along the ocean is seven to 9:30 we will see some moderate tidal flooding in the back bays especially. back bays, high tides are after the ocean high tied. so this kessal flood warning that you see here where darker green is in effect until 1:00 in the morning saturday ape coastal flood advisory for probably, flooding that is not as bad is also in effect until 2:00 in the morning on saturday. high tide along the oceanfront 7:30 to 9:00 tonight. minor to moderate flooding expect, some road could be closed as a result. we will get an extra inch of rain or more out of this coast willal storm that we're seeing. the worst of it is happening right now, during the morning rush hour. temperatures are still chilly
6:17 am
in the 50's and we don't expect them to move at all today, 54 degrees for a high temperature, possibility of a thunderstorm. tomorrow showers will still be aroundes special lit in the early part of the day. we could eke out some sunshine and get to 66 degrees, looking better for mothers day maybe a shower or two early, and then sunshine taking us to 70 degrees, in the afternoon. definitely sunday is your better weather day. >> well, that is good for moms out there but not good for moms or dad heading out of the front door right now a lot of stuff going down here. here's a live look the at i-95 northbound jackknife tractor trailer, this is northbound approaching academy road. look at the jammo here, as folks trying to get on, here's one of the emergency vehicles, trying to get on at cottman avenue, cannot even make it. they have to sit through the delay and this is tough part with the construction. they don't have any shoulders in the construction zone so
6:18 am
they have emergency crew that is can't make it up to the accident scene. so i-95 instead of using it going north bound jump off at bridge street here and take tacony street and work yourself through neighborhood, wissonoming, you'll past the police academy and get back on i-95 at linden. the here's the 492 freeway the ramp to 55 is blocked, a nasty accident, 55 is closed, southbound, from the freeway the accident is right there in front of the deptford mall. stay with 42 and get down to the next exit blackwood clementon road and work your way back in there. two separate accidents, almost the same spot as yesterday, and i wand fur they did change is here. we have had all these accidents on the extension but southbound, between quakertown and lansdale, two separate accidents in that actual construction zone and another accident southbound on the turnpike at exit number eight. mike and alex, back over to

>> an argument between two drivers on the blue route end when one of them fires a shot outside his side window into the car next to him. steve keeley is on this. state troopers, looking for this guy, steve? >> reporter: technically driving doesn't sound so bad when you compared to shooting and, driving, does it. this happened just before 3:00 e the police here at belmont barracks rush right over to 476 where it runs through west conshohocken. they got a call from the 26 year-old guy driving this mitsubishi blue lancer here, now with the big bullet hole right through the passenger door right beneath the mirror. bullet then lodged in the center console lucky for him before it could hit the driver. right before 3:00 o'clock is when drivers on that highway before it gets backup and goes bumper to bumper. they are usually doing 60 miles an hour often, a lot faster on the blue route, going through west conshohocken right there and so who despite the tinted windows on both cars, police didn't say, and i don't know if they were asked if both or
6:37 am
one of the drivers windows were down while they were going back and forth, with this road rage case, they may have been yelling at each other, making those famous one fingered hand gestures. somehow the driver of the car, that hat got shot the at got a good enough look at the gun and other driver to describe him to the state police sketch artist here. police report that the guy is 40 to 50 years old, wearing a flat brim unlabeled baseball hat. here is, pennsylvania state trooper corporal clayton talking in proper police speak referring to the shooter in this case as the actor. the actor rolled his window down, drew a semiautomatic weapon with his right-hand and shot at the victim. so, he should not have any piercings to his window. he shot from the vehicle and just kept going and fled the scene. fortunately the way his vehicle is could be figure the center console stopped that
6:38 am
ramp from striking him. if the vehicle wasn't configured in such a war where center console would prevent that rounding from go through the victim would have been struck and could have possibly been kill. we are dealing with someone who needs to be taken off the streets. >> reporter: shooter's car looks like a common car service limousine service cars, one of those dark, lincoln town cars and it has dark blue color and tinted window. the victim must have been getting tailgated because he got a a real good look at the front grill to point out that the lincoln emblem in the front has a read back ground and state troopers did research and said that is a a rare occurrence to have a read back ground on lincoln town car emblem. that is biggest distinction with this car, other than the guy, who looks very menace nothing that mug shot driving it behind the wheel, with a loaded gun. >> the guy driving that car
