oh, it is a mess right not. take a look at radar close to a half inch of rain has fallen in our area and we are bracing for more and what it means for the morning commute. it is back to work but for those depending on the train a major headache ahead of your morning commute. what septa a wants to you know before you head to the station this morning. and that was the scene on the parkway, packed with thousands of people, watching, the grand finally the fire works show last night but did mother nature spoil the fire works show. >> yeah, ones over the river were loud enough to wake me up again. >> would that be the delaware river. >> that is right. good day everybody it is
tuesday julyivity, 2016. >> how are we on live right now fire works were going off at 0:00 something last night. >> it was brutal. >> speaking of brutal it will be a brutal commute to work. so many people going back to work today. we have not only wet roads but we have the septa issue whether i bob will be address nothing a second. >> which means more cars and more chances of a mess and mother nature providing her own fire works, this morning, because we're seeing then are storms popping up, you can see the big area of rain, in, and moving you this right now, where you see red and orange and yellow that is where we are seeing heavy downpours and lightening moving across the delaware bay out of delaware into cumberland county, new jersey. if these hold together some parts of the jersey shore will be rocking and rolling pretty soon. the it looks like central delaware getting the worst. then we have heavy downpours around trenton, we're looking at bucks county around doylestown and parts of the montgomery county just north of the upper providence as
well, heavy rain, help you get the a heavy downpour you could get quick a accumulation of rain which means ponding, hydroplaning and flash flooding, in fact we have a flash flood watch in effect for all these counties in green, until 10:00 o'clock this morning because we expect that situation to last, throughout the rest of the morning, only half mile visibility in pottstown. foggy in trenton as well, so in addition to the rain all that moisture in the air is creating a little bit of fog. we have muggy 74 degrees in philadelphia a. sixty-four in mount pocono. seventy-four at atlantic city. seventy-five in dover. wind picking up at 10 miles an hour out of the southwest in the city and we're expecting to go get to 86 degrees today, depend how much sun we will get but rain and thunderstorms, throughout the rest of the morning commute, leave early as early as you can, to, handle all of the potential problems this morning, sun will emerge by this afternoon and we will heat up by end of the day. that is your planner for
tuesday. so, as we get back to reality after a long who will take weekend, let's welcome back bob kelly. >> hi, sue good morning everybody. thanks for holding down the fort yesterday, 4:03 on this tuesday morning. the situation with septa just to give you an idea on a normal day, normal rush hour services they have 65,000 seats available on the regional will rail trains. toe day there is 35,000, there is 30,000 people here, who will be without seats on a rush hour. once that train hits capacity it will bypass any future stops. for example paoli thorndale line one of the busiest lines. dave kinchen will be coming to us live from the wynnewood station, in a few moment but you will be okay on the thorndale station, downingtown, maybe that paoli stop but as the train moves closer to center city and it reaches capacity this gang right here, the main line will be in the bull's eye which
most likely will be standing on the platform as that train goes on by. of course to add to that mess we have the rain this morning. find an alternate, look at the septa schedule. go to septa.org. it is basically a saturday holiday schedule which means trains are running every 30 minutes into center city. they have added extra trains on both market frankford and broad street subway and there is also free parking at the frankford transportation center. chris and lauren, back to you. as we said with bob and sue two big stories, weather and, of course, traffic with the septa traffic problems. steve keeley roaming streets making sure road are safe to travel. >> lets get to dave kinchen covering this chaotic scene to come later for septa riders. you are live along the paoli thorndale line. >> reporter: well, here at wynnewood station and we can tell you, they have been warning us all weekend inn this is the day when headaches
and peel will feel the squeeze. the septa's regional rail you will want to pay attention to the adjust to ted train schedule put in place this morning septa is running on a maryland filed saturday schedule after pulling one-third of the regional rail fleet, one crack in the steel beams of the 120 silver liner five train cars. now with the sat the day plan in place the amount of trains heading in to center city are cut back half and those seats you heard bob talk about are cut down by half as well. morning and evening rush hours will run close to every half an hour as possible but transit officials say there will be clouds and add advise people to move to bus or subway serve wismer park ago long the broad street and market frankford lines. they are adding old are train cars to ease some of the pressure of those lines with bolsters services a monk the city and suburban trolleys but transit managers still say that allow plenty of time and patients. >> each line will have a an
extra train that will run earlier then the normal saturday schedule for those coming in for the earlier work schedules, and at this point trains will be an added to the a.m. and p.m. travel period. >> it will certainly affect me and my options because tomorrow is when i will leave, when i will get home a lot more crowded trains, that is for sure. it will be a nightmare. i'm not sure if a lot of people know about it. >> reporter: we cannot emphasize bob's point enough, septa is saying riders should know once a train hits that full capacity they cannot make additional stops to pick up more passengers especially stations closest to center city. a lot of station will be bypassed because they get too full well before they go into center city. as we come back live, check septa and take a good look at the that sat the day plan, and, plan a cordingly. they said yesterday even if you can work from home, consider doing that, because today a lot of headaches, felt with the morning drive, and or
morning commute and evening commute as well. back to you you. >> rain doesn't help a at all. dave kinchen, thanks v. >> true. before you head out, easiest way to figure out what to do at your train station, there is all that rain out there so all you have to do is log on to fox 29.com web site and find a link with the information. conditions could increase delays, as we said at septa platforms and along the roads. >> people make they are way back to work this morning after the long holiday weekend. steve keeley you are in new jersey, checking on conditions there. how are things looking. >> reporter: i tried to do what kinchen suggested i tried to work from home today, oddly the boss said no, that will not work. you and jerrick and sue, everybody else, bob kelly, you cannot work at home today despite the problems. as soon as i start talking it start raining. it is not even raining that hard yet. that is a good thing. before traffic builds up sue talks about hydroplaning is more dangerous because you can still do 07 on the highways
like people were doing on our way down here on i-95. you if hit 6 inches of water at 07 way more treacherous, dangerous and potentially deadly then if you hit it 20 once traffic builds up. that is a good thing. we came here where this massive road project, that is likely going to last until 2020 is underway. it is only drizzling and the drainage system is not in yet. you can see like a little creek and valley. with drizzle you can see a river building up. greg will walk down. the sewer system is not in. the sewer is 2 feet above where this water is running down, around and it caused a mud slide on the road. look at this hill full of sand and mud. every time it rains and rains hard you get a swimming pool we'll affect. remember chris o'connell standing in waist deep water out here. just like construction on i-95 in philadelphia a, we have got concrete medians on the side of these temporary lanes with no drainage.
water has in where to go. same with the schuylkill expressway around girard. that is how it becomes a swimming pool. however gets hit with that massive micro burst of heavy downpours where the skies don't move and it rains, rains, rains and get 3 inches a and hour that is where potential problems are. lets look at this, this road, basically barely getting underway to be finish. i'm standing on what would be the curve but between the curve and road we have a creek and since we are on the creek road we will call this creek road creek. >> creek road creek. >> steve keeley, thank you. appreciate that. we will keep an eye on the road and, of course, with this septa mess a lot of questions about the ordering of these trains, now have a problem apparently. evidently there was a delay getting those trains into service and very telling they will put some perhaps the older train cars into action. so, we will take a look at that. also this morning. >> police are on the the hunt foreman who tried to abduct
two women in newark delaware. sunday man grabbed a university of the delaware student at colonial garden apartment complex at main street. the same man tried to push a 61 year-old woman inside her own car. that was yesterday at the main towers. investigators say that the student was unloading packaging when she was attack by a man who tried to put the a rag saturated with some chemical around her mouth. she fought him off and ran away. just four short hours a complex next door woman was attacked from behind getting out of her car. she for the back and got away. neighbors are now on edge. >> when we have a two-year old little girl, wife, and you are out in a place where anything can happen, like, even our lard lord is one of the nicest people on earth, it the is just shocking. it really is. >> would the men not hurt, police say suspect is a white male in his early 20's, 5-foot six or seven with a thin
build. well, the rain could not stop the grand finally of the wawa welcome america festivities last night. >> art museum lit up in a dark cloudy sky, for the fire works. >> that same rain forcing several cancellations including a performance by philly pops. >> not all performances cancelled however. >> ♪ >> that was one of the stars from fox's hit show empire yas the greatest, he performed one of the bigger hits from the show you're so beautiful. >> during his set he thanked the city for all it does for him. watch empire every wednesday night right here on fox 29, that show is set to return this fall. >> you can see they were perform earlier in the day before the heavy rains came.
performing some of their biggest hits. >> they rock it in the rain, it didn't stop them from putting on a big show but sue, it was soggy last night and it will be worse today. >> i was watching that. you could see when light came around you could see sheets of rain and umbrellas came up and it didn't matter folks were rocking and rolling and had a great time. now we have challenges this morning, post holiday challenges as i just tweeted with some heavier downpours moving through central delaware and thunderstorms heading in to southern new jersey. you can see all that lightening there and heavy rain around dover, delaware area. pretty steady rain in southern new castle county as well. we will show you, all of this part of the route 13, route 113, probably flash flooding going on as we mentioned high crow planing, ponding on the rode around the maurice river here up are township in cape may county and all this heavy rain is heading for parts of the jersey shore. if you haven't left just yet. be prepared, ocean city, sea
isle city will be getting some pretty heavy rain and you'll hear from some thunder as well. there is towamencin township with heavy rain. they come in pockets. weak get big downpour and get a quick inch of rain before you know it and you have to take it slow and allow extra time, so for today, we expect this to keep up, through about 8:00 o'clock this morning, and then sunshine, burns through all of those cloud in the a afternoon and we may get close to 90 degrees, this one computer model is going with 89 for today. by tomorrow, we're in the 90's, by thursday, we're back in the 90's with the possibility of pop up showers and thunderstorms. as soon as this round of rain is over get ready for the heat to turn up and way up and stay that way for the rest of the workweek even in the first part of the weekend. 74 degrees, muggy in philadelphia, plenty of rain around, 57 where it is raining heavily in dover delaware.
sixty-four in mount pocono. your average high is 87. we had tease event sat the day and sunday, but by monday we had high of only 80 degrees, yesterday with all those cloud to take we will go to 86, maybe even higher then 90's 90's, all the way through saturday that would be heat wave number two of the season. we will back down in the upper 80's by sunday and monday. look at those shore temperatures when you get some beach time it will be nice and hot there as well with the happened breeze, 88, 87. eighty-seven for the next couple of days, so, bob kelly, once we get through this challenge then we have to figure out how to keep cool. >> it will be a challenge whether you use rails or the roadways, as see just showed us rain throughout our morning rush hour. basically situation with september at regional rails are using a special schedule today, similar to a saturday schedule. so trains will run basically
every 30 minutes. your best bet, before you even head out the front door down load that schedule at septa.org. now each station along every single line has the suggested alternate, septa gives you a suggested alternate, to use a bus or a trolley to get to your destination. but it all depend upon what station you are originating and where you are going. that is another option if you do not have that vehicle to drive-in to center city or drive to anyone of the closed parking lots. they have offered free parking at frankford transportation center in northeast philadelphia a, that is where we have had our show up there in the northeast there and they have added extra trains on both market frankford line and broad street subway. but typically there are 65,000 seat on a morning rush hour commute with all of the trains a veilable, with the limited trains this morning we only have 35,000 seats for commuters. so, there is going to be some
overcrowding, the the closer you get to the city expect those full trains to bypass you. we will see extra volume on the roadways this morning. rain is naturally going to slow things down. right now schuylkill in the bad at all but wipers are on and there is ponding from the the rain overnight. here's i-95 in delaware county and heading to the airport expect delays this morning at philadelphia international. chris and lauren, back over to you. we have an eye on this at 4:19. bill cosby's lawyers will take another run at getting his criminal sex assault case thrown out when cosby returns to court on thursday. two days from now. seventy-eight year-old cosby will be in montgomery count that i his accuser should be forced to testify before he goes to trial. cosby's lawyers want the right to question andrea constand at a pretrial hearing. prosecutors complain that they really just want to test her credibility. prosecutors say a new jersey man paid a philadelphia woman to allow him to sexually

including the jersey shore for folks decide to go stay maybe through this morning. and try to make your way home later on this morning. we will see what happens with that. anyway, it is mug which temperatures in the 70's. we have 64 in mount pocono. mid 70's every where else. visibility is an issue in a few place that he is could slow you down with the rain. reduced visibility in trenton and pottstown right now and millville, new jersey and dover, that is where they are getting heavier downpours. we have, sunshine in the forecast but not until later in the day. we will not make it through morning commute without any sunshine but it will warm up well in the upper 80's, your sunset time is 8:32. lots of challenges this morning, bob kelly, septa the major one. >> septa and the road, of course that rain mother nature will make things slippery, already, an accident here this is i-95 southbound, right here at penns landing, this fellow

or i should say extra spots available at the train stations, the cynwyd line using shuttle buses until further are notice taking those trains off and throwing them in the mix. extra trains on the market frankford line and free parking available at frankford transportation center, chris and lauren, back over to you. travel troubles for septa riders as bob just mentioned it will be major delays. >> septa regional rail has taken these cars out of service in order to make repairs, on the new cars. these aren't old cars from the 40's, these are the newer cars, dave kinchen is all over this. people will be really stranded and in the rain. what a horrible confluence of events. >> reporter: my gosh, not to mention those new cars cost septa 274 million-dollar, they held them out six years ago and now they are having problems. the big problem today, the people who ray lion septa's regional rails will be feeling squeeze with the adjusted train schedule put in place this morning. septa says it is running on a
modified saturday schedule after pulling a third of the regional rail fleet, once engine found cracked in the steel beans in the silver liner five train cars. with the saturday plan in place the amount of trains heading in to center city are cut bias much as half, morning and evening rush hours will run close to every half an hour as possible, the transit authorities say that there will be crowds, nonetheless, and advise people to move to bus to subway serve business more parking on the broad street and market frankford lines. they are heading older train cars in the the mix to ease some of the tension, but a long those lines but they are bolstering service among the city and suburban trolleys too. septa managers say allow plenty of time and patients. we will send it back to you guys. >> okay. and, as we saw earlier wynnewood, and paoli thorndale line will be a real mess this morning.

heavy rain soon. you are in ocean city and atlantic city. you are probably hearing rumbles of thunderer cog your heavier rain. it is lighter to the north of news spots but parts of the bucks county still seeing steady to heavier rain and all that could make for some flooding on the roadways, flash flood watch continues until 10:00 a.m. for most of the area looking at the future cast we have a situation continuing on and off throughout about eight or 9:00 e heavier rain pulls off shore by then jersey shore is last place to get the rain. they are getting it now and that will continue. then we will head in the 80's with filtered sunshine throughout the afternoon. we could see a stray shower at 2:00 in the afternoon but nothing like what we're going to get right now. we are close to 90 degrees today. we should get to 90 degrees tomorrow ape thursday and day after that and day after that, we are in for a prolong period of heat and humidity. just like july is supposed to be around here.
65 degrees in mount pocono. seventy-one in lancaster. seventy-four in dover. and wildwood kind of muggy this morning as we look back. yesterday's high was 80 degrees, and today, we will well exceed that with enough sunshine to 88. ninety-three tomorrow. ninety-four on thursday, friday, probably the hottest day, and we will see the heat index well into triple digits, by probably thursday, and friday, and saturday it gets hot again but then with the cold front and some storms in the afternoon that knocks temperatures down to the upper 80's on sunday and monday and should get rid of the humidity as well. if this is your week to spend at the shore it will be hot every day on the beach with temperatures in the upper 80's, bob kelly. >> good morning everybody. not looking good for commuters, this is that morning rush hour we have been talking about since friday on a normal day septa's regional rails have about 65,000 seats available, coming into center city. today with the adjustments we are looking at only 35,000
seats. once that train reaches capacity it will bypass any of the the future spots. that will be the problem for the stations closer to center city. they are basically running on a modified saturday schedule which means trains running only every 30 minutes as opposed to ten minutes on a regular workday. you want to down load schedule made available last night at septa.org and think about your alternates. again, those crowded conditions will occur at all of the stations closest to center city, more chances that train will be filled and bypass you as you're waiting for to get on the train. now each station along every single line has a suggested alternate to get you from where you are going the at that station to center city. used for plans such as a snow day or when we do have problems like we have right now. so that is one option, if you do not have a vehicle or if you have no other option to
