202, bypass and even the pennsylvania turnpike. here's the first example of the police presence that you will see, number of checkpoints. this is a vine street expressway ramp, lead leaving center sit the eye to go south on i-95. the tiehl is vehicles weighing over five tons, not the permitted between center city and basically philadelphia international. you think five tons is more than just tractor trailers it is inquirer drug, bread trucks , school buses, delivery vehicles. these guys will be busy. you may be thinking i'm not going to the convention but if you are not going you will have delays with all of these checkpoints. so southbound i-95, northeast philadelphia, coming into sent ever city everything is opened but there will be a a police checkpoint between girard and vine street expressway down to three lanes pushing trucks off in the center city. same deal coming north on i-95 , everything is opened, but one left lane is as they check all of the trucks approaching philly international, and pushing them up and over the platt

shock to me or my supporters. there is no question that the dnc was on secretary clinton's side from day one. we all know that. >> reporter: dnc chair woman debbie wasserman schultz announce ago this she plans to resign at the end of the week. it wasser man schultz says she's committed to seeing clinton become president but party chair the best way for her to accomplish that goal, it is to step down. the vice chair, donna brazil, a cnn political commend taiter will take over as interim leader but what about the convention leader. martha a fudge has been preside todd tap over dnc. she's former chair of the congressional black caucus and considered to be a rising star in the house, with a little background information on who she is, she represents downtown cleveland, the site have the last weeks g.o.p. convention. ohio has always been a important battle ground state. fudge came to congress in a special election in 2008. chris, lot making headlines this morning from the

the susan surrounden telling everybody to speak up their mind but don't speak out of place meaning don't get too troublesome for the police. we are seeing over night what bob was talking about, i experienced on i-95 coming in. you see a bun have of cops at girard avenue entrance and exit. then you see them at callowhill exit and wondering where do i go. it looks like road are blocked and they are sitting in the median between callowhill, vine street expressway exit and 95 southbound. be careful especially in the middle of the night. they have their lights flashing but it looks like there is a big accident but you can drive straight through just be careful around police, slow it down, take it down to 35 at most. the here at the convention center you can see familiar barricade, the roads are opened, and you see several police officers, a lot of them doing 129 hour overnight shift but even the at this early hour with no sunshine and maybe temperatures still in the upper 70's, by the air
is thick with the humidity. tough job for these guys. you see one leaning on the barricade there but they are trying to drink as much water as possible and keep the peace out here. our reporters yesterday including sabina kuriakose got some talk seeing police and barricades. what are they thinking about philadelphia a seeing all this >> i have seen a lot of police officers, every where, just every where downtown. i feel safe. >> i do not feel limited at all. >> we're protecting this city, both from land, air and on the the aer ways. >> we are so happy for the security. >> we feel safe, security, nothing unsafe about this place. >> reporter: we will send it back to you at wells fargo center at fourth and market. >> all right, steve keeley, thank you. we have all kind of police outside yesterday even,. >> beside protests and e-mails many are talking about the speakers. keynote speakers will be first

8:00 a.m. event. it remains to be seen whether she will make an appearance. we can tell you many of the 4700 plus delegates made their appearance in philadelphia over the weekend taking in the popular historical sites at independence hall area while dealing with the intense heat getting water, that is sold on the streets whenever they could get it. liberty bell was a big hit. we asked delegates for their initial impressions of philadelphia. >> my image was a little bit darker because i heard about crime in philadelphia, and i had a completely different image. people here are extremely friendly, extremely friendly. >> philadelphia is city of brotherly love, and sisterly affection. so, they lived up to it, that is for sure. >> reporter: no doubt about it one debate which cheese stake is the best in town? dnc, the bernie sanders camp, debbie wasserman schultz, whether she will be there, that is another debate as well >> debate over this, big name
we have some thunderstorms we want to show you on ultimate doppler radar moving in through chester county right now toward delco, towards philadelphia and it does appear that they are holding together pretty well. you can see a lot of lightening all throughout and it is confined to chester county around coatsville,
lower pos grove, tredyffrin township, concord you are get something rain, downpours heading your way. we will take away lightening and see upper providence is an area getting very heavy rain at the moment. so is west vincent, east white land all these place necessary chester county, delco, philadelphia we have not been hit yet but other parts of the montgomery county of been and this does seem to be moving, west to east. moving further down west grove , east marlboro, hockessin delaware business to get a heavy downpour as well. keep that all in mind. the it is all associated with the warm front and as a result of that warmer air even warmer then what we have had over the weekend is moving in today. so these heat index, the heat index how it feels outside could be as high as 106, 110 degrees, the heat of the day to day. after those thunderstorms, roll through. we have that problem now, heat later on. 80 degrees in philadelphia rain has not hit. seventy-three in lancaster where it was raining with an
hour ago. dew points are up there, even in lancaster we have got that 72-degree dew point. thunderstorms will not take away that humidity, dew point of 71 in philadelphia a, which is pretty humid right now, it will be oppressive later on, so we're already in the middle of heat wave number four which began on friday with 94 degrees. ninety-seven saturday before the storms. 95 degrees yet. today we're expecting even hotter weather. in fact, for today our forecast high is 98. the record is 96, set pack this 1999. we're about to say bye-bye to that record. 98 degrees today. ninety-six tomorrow. ninety-five on wednesday. in of this heat is going anywhere, still steamy all the way through the democratic national convention. yeah, democrats are here in town and we've got a possibility of a seven day heat wave if we make 90 degrees on friday, and then pop up thunderstorms, of course, are part of the deal.
it doesn't look like we will get whole lot of relief at the shore because our shore high temperatures will be in the 90 's today as well. so bob kelly the heat is on in so many ways, not just the temperature. >> glenn frye playing those tunes back in the 80's. >> yeah. >> good morning everybody. 4:17. all this talk about the convention we still this have situation with septa a. yeah, that is still with us and with the heat up decks at its all time high here, you want to aid volume standing outside on the platforms any longer then you can't. same situation with september, regional rail trains. we have links to the new current timetable on our web site, facebook and twitter. one change for folks that typically park in south philadelphia, the novacare complex is not opened for folks, to park and use the broad street subway. you have to park at south philadelphia high school. that is the parking lot for sun way this week with the convention there in town. of course, free parking up there at the frankford transportation center.
those storms moving through chester county right now knocking speed down quickly, and here's another example of the police checkpoint. this is i-95, northbound, between the platt bridge and philly international where there is only two lanes opened , again, everything is opened but just be ready for slow downs to to occur. police presence every where and object here toys prevent five-ton trucks and vehicles from going past this checkpoint, and then going up i-95. chris, back over to you. all traffic head to go one place. that is the wells fargo center we will send our attention to lauren johnson there now hours before the convention begins. good morning, lauren. >> reporter: good morning, chris. former vice-presidential -- former vice-president al gore will not attend the convention gore, he is a tennessee super delegate, one of the eight tennessee super delegates, but only one not committed to a candidate. political has previously reported that gore plans to wait until democrats are

south philadelphia where convention is set to get underway in hours here a lot happening already before today one. today's theme is united together putting families first a and that theme will focus on putting the future on american families front and center. while democrats are focused on the future, unfortunately the patties making headlines this morning. the democrats have been trying to avoid the divide that was apparent in cleveland during last weeks rnc but hacked e-mails published by wikileaks has fired up supporters of the senator bernie sanders. the scandal has cost the chair of the party debbie wasserman schultz her job. nearly 20,000 e-mails suggest dnc officials actively work matters in clinton's favors. they included suggestions of questioning the senator's religion or hinting that his campaign was a complete mess. sanders has long a accused on the party of favoring hillary clinton. despite democrats claiming they were neutral during the primary season. >> i told you a long time ago
that the dnc was not running a fair operation, that they were supporting secretary clinton. so what i suggested to be true six months ago turns out to be in fact to be true. this does not come as a shock to me or my supporters. there is no question that the dnc was on secretary clinton's side from day one. we all know that. >> dnc chair woman debbie wasserman schultz announce ago this she plans to resign at the end of the week when the convention is over. she says she's committed to seeing clinton become president but the party chair says best way to accomplish that goalies for her to step down. vice chair, donna brazil, a cnn political comment taiter will take over as the leader. congress hand marcia fudge has been preside todd tap over the dnc. she's former chair of the congressional black caucus and considered to be a rising star in the house of representatives. so much going on.

this is really nothing but you see they have got the american flags draped all over the street, not just on the corner but all of the way down 11th street as well. greg, give them a shot of the sky and we will try to catch on is lightening for you. flashlight evening and we have warning from sue. maybe people here may actually want it to rain because maybe that will cool off the air because the air is real thick and boy we are standing over an open sewer, and it is not a pleasant smell for philadelphia visitors right now. so we will give you a look at the rain as it starts raining but chris, in protests just yet and good thing from our perspective most are scheduled in the afternoon and evening as long as we are's clear of it. >> we will keep an eye on the weather. lets take a lot the a the radar if we can because those storms are moving in and it will be a hot day later today as well. >> yes, big thunderstorms are really unfortunately steve, it will in the make a whole lot of difference with the temperature because they are associated with the warm front which means warmer air is moving in but we have a little
convention. gore, he is a tennessee super delegate, one of the eight super delegates this year but he is only one not committed to a candidate. from it co has previously report that had gore plans to wait until the democrats officially many in nate a presidential candidate before he endorses someone. the here's a different story, speaking oven doorsments, hillary clinton getting nod from former new york mayor michael bloomberg. he will endorse clinton and he is expect to speak here at the democratic convention. a cording to the senior bloomberg advisor former mayor will make a strong case in philadelphia that clinton is the clear choice in this election. so chris, it is really interesting, democrat turned republican turned democrat turned independent but we will see what happens, lot going on here, right. >> so much going on, i found one of the most interesting things going on is what you mentioned about al gore. she knows the clintons so well having been part of that administration, all during the 90's. we will get more reaction from that. if you are looking for a guide
