of your forecast, but, ya, you can get ready for another heatwave. we've been telling but this all week long, i lover you, diana. there is a look at the radar picture, and the rain, that's now moved into cape may county, and southern part of delaware, and there is upper mount bethel, one stray shower there, so, couple every rogue showers around this morning, not a big deal, but there, and if you notice the grounds is wet, that's y heat advisory, is in effect from noon until 6:00 p.m. for all of the counties you see here, and there it is again, another heatwave, because getting the south with westerly winds starting today, and started a little bit yesterday. yesterday still wasn't too bad. even though we got to 91 degrees, will we set a record? it will be close, because the record for today is 96 degrees, forecasting 95, record for tomorrow's 94, we could tie that one, saturday's record, 97, forecasting 94, we will see what happens.
regardless of record it will be hot and humid. 73 degrees right now, in philadelphia, so only go up from here. sixty-four in mount pocono, 74 in dover, we have an average high of 81. now that we have the heatwave for a long time, in fact, even after we break the heatwave we'll still stay in the mid to upper 80s. two more days, heatwave number one -- seven, add one more, on 94 degrees, on saturday. that's a look at your seven day forecast, lauren, chris? >> all right, on the scene every breaking news, we've been telling you about i95 delaware count i tractor-trailer overturns and catches fire. >> load spilling all over i95 this is new castle, let's go to steve keeley who raised to the scene just short time ago. steve, good morning. >> these jersey barriers, usually for security reasons, down for road construction, and it looks like that's where
it happened in a stretch of road construction. >> there in the distance see where we are, right along 995, see it is completely dark, completely shutdown. >> for wilmington, philadelphia, then to the right, if you are going over the twin bridges, 295, delaware memorial bridge. gently to the right, chris, you will see the detoured get off the road traffic on 141, we will slowly pan back now, and you will see the long line of traffic, as far as the eye can see this time of day in the dark. you see delaware state police, and delaware transportation department trucks there with all of the flashing lights, forcing everybody off 95, way before the accident scene, the red light to your right, that's 95 southbound onto baltimore, that's going smooth, and there is no rubber necking here, because we will spin around again, and you will see how far 95 is, there is a long wide median there. so these people coming here including us you can't see
through those trees there, so you can't even see the accident scene. so that's one advantage. we're not going to have any slow downs or accidents people looking at this accident scene. delaware state trooper, just to give you idea how far the accident is away from our view, and this truck overturning in the distance up there, the drivers okay, this happened at 1:53 a.m., according to jeff pail, the del way state police accident press release a man who put out release just to hopefully get the words out to all of the drivers in morning rush hour, that this shutdown could be pretty bad. tan already is at this time of night. because you can see it is a crawl at 141. where that bleeds into, you can bet, nothing but congestion as these truckers all going north toward philadelphia and new york sit, try to figure out how to get back on 95, and hopefully the police are detouring them pretty good to get them back on the roadment bob kelly, who knows how bad it is, once this 141 goes into the wilmington area. but a lot of road construction, all around, and it will be a tough slow go
before this get reopened. >> you got it, steve, good morning, everybody, thanks for the liver shot. he got there. what we've confirmed is that that tractor-trailer was caring pennies, pennies from heaven, every time it rains it rains pennies from heaven. the blanks that were used to pack pennies. so don't be scrambling out there like you want to help us clean up. they're blank. >> so i guess copper blanks maybe? >> not worth that much. >> fantastic. that's what the truck was caring, and that's what spilled all over the roadway, we can have some fun with it, because the driver is okay. truck after the accident caught flames, and that driver taken probably to christianna hospital. that's the exit to use when stepping out the door this morning. ninety-five northbound, all traffic forced off at exit number five, exit right here, there is a live shot from our del dot camera.
right there. pushing everybody off north 95 at exit 5a. you're right. you'll get pushed into wilmington, pushed into the neighborhood here. and everyone not sure where they're going. best bet right now get off before you get stuck in the closure point. jump off at exit four, for the christianna mall. take that route one south you can pick up route 13 north. that will will give you access to the delaware memorial bridge. this is like a double bubble here. because not only is it preventing folks 95 getting into wilmington, it is also preventing folks 95 getting in to delaware, that's where steve was showing us there that busy interchange where there is a lot going on. exit five itself i believe has four different exits, 5a, b, c and d. so confusing when coming north. but coming from delaware, newark, know the back roads, you know probably route four will get new wilmington. if you are headed up to dupont
