4:09 am
that he would quit before breaking the law for the president. if i am given the honor of leading this agency, i will never allow the fbi's work to be driven by anything other than the fact, the law, and the impartial pursuit of justice, period. >> he wants a major convictions against enron executives it, worked as chris christie's attorney during bridgegate. >> 4:09. staying on top of all of the breaking news in the case of the four missing bucks county men. >> still a heed here on "good day" philadelphia, a body has been found. plus new charges for the person of interest in this case. all right, sue, we send it back over to you for a check of the weather. >> yes, heat advisory in effect for today. that will affect what a lot of people's plans, of course, we are also looking at heat advisories for the outlying areas. it is going to feel like it is in triple digit today. and you got to take care of yourself. we'll warn you as best we can
4:10 am
coming up.
4:11 am
4:12 am
>> we have a look at the records to beat today. we told awe little bit earlier, this week, about how thursday would be the worse day of this heatwave. and even though records have been standing for a long time, we have a decent chance of at least tying the record of
4:13 am
98 degrees for the day, would you think in the middle of july some of these records would be in triple digit, but that's not the case, so we're shooting i guess for wilmington and philadelphia to be at 98 degrees today. we have a good chance that far happening. but the more important thing, what it feels like outside with 105 as the heat index for today. the possibility, especially along the i-95 corridor, we told you yesterday, about the urban heat islands, concrete, and steel, with a whole lot of buildings, it holds the heat better. but, everywhere is going to be feeling this heat, and of course we cannot remind you enough to stay hydrated. so,. >> this is yesterday and the day before, we could get to around 97 by the ends of the day today. it is 80 degrees in philadelphia, already. 81 degrees in wildwood, 68 degrees in mount pocono, but the heat index is already
4:14 am
85. so, we walk out the door 4:00 in the morning it feels like eight a degrees. well, it is no where but up from there. then with the possibility of cold front coming through, a lot of instability in the air, marginal risk once again of severe weather later on in the day. and although we're not showing you anything on radar right now, because we don't have any precipitation, really not until later on this afternoon, that that possibility is there. so, here we go, with about 2:00 in the afternoon, north and west of the city, some isolated thunderstorms, you can see, on this future cast, how there is just like these isolated circles here, the possibility that you won't see a thunderstorm at all. and if you do, it could be a really strong to severe one, with heavy downpours, a lot of thunder and lightning, that possibility exists through the night really, through 8:00. here is 11:00 more thunderstorms, and here's about 4:00 in the morning, around this time tomorrow morning, when we could still have few leftovers, and with some renmant of the colds front coming through on friday, which will break the
4:15 am
heatwave another chance of pop up showers and thunderstorms toward the afternoon and evening. so, a lot going on weather wise in the next couple of days, but be prepared for very hot day. yesterday, in philadelphia, we got to 91. atlantic city, reached 90, and so did wilmington, delaware. so, 93 is where we're going for one possibility of high temperature today. but it could be even higher, 87 tomorrow, and we stay in the 80s through the weekendsment looks like saturday is once again the best weather day of the weekends, giving that one a nine, because humidity will be down at least for a little while. that's the seven day forecast, promise you pictures there, but the words coming. so that's what we've got there. it is a chance, sorry, we're taking a look at the traffic situation, this is the schuylkill expressway, and, again, at a stand still. looks like the road is closed.
4:16 am
still trying to figure out why that's the case. but it is a construction situation. the schuylkill westbound at gladwynn. vine street expressway still closed until 5:00. and we will take a look at traffic on i-95 at girard avenue, and everything is moving along fine, very early in the morning, as volume picks up. we will take a look at that, as well. karen, thomas? >> sue, thank you so much. that construction project is happening overnight, it has been helping between 202 and of course route one city avenue. we'll have more on that. >> 4:16, breaking news, coverage of the four missing young men out of bucks count. >> i the bodies of one of those men has now been found, the kad daffer dog led us to the bodies of dean finocchiaro, burried deep in a grave, 12 feet deep, on grave in solebury township where they're centering their attention, cosmo did i narrow's home, other human remains were also found in that grave, as well.
4:17 am

>> 4:45, continuing with breaking news coverage. >> there has been major break overnight while many of you were sleeping in the case of these missing men in bucks county, one of their bodies has been found there. the victim 19 year old dean finocchiaro, more remains were also found there. it was the kad daffer dogs that led the investigators to the scene, and they found a 12-. it is on that 90-acre farm where they've been searching, sifting through the dirt and evidence there. that farm is owned by the parent of the person of interest. cosmo dinardo. >> also, a lot to talk about this morning. traffic and weather wise, sue zero. >> weather the big story today, happy to report there aren't any major incidents with traffic as we take this look at the ben franklin bridge from the new jersey side. heading into philadelphia, free and clear this morning. and a look at the loud 42 at creek road, quite a few cars for this hour of day, but
4:46 am
everybody moving along just fine, heading toward philadelphia. and, this view of i95, at cottman avenue, plenty of room for you to make your way out early on this thursday morning. but later on today, oh, boy, this is going to be the worse every this particular heatwave. we'll have the details coming up in 15 seconds. >> he can he is i have heat warnings. you know where you live. then the heat advisory, for all of the outlying areas, excluding the mountains, and even lancaster county, that doesn't mean it is going to be nice and cool out there. but it will be better than it is in the urban areas. so, with the heat index of around 105, plus we have an air quality alert in effect
4:47 am
for today. because of the lack of winds today, the excessive heat, the humidity, unhealthy air quality for sensitive groups, folks with asthma, and other conditions, that make it difficult to breathe outside. as far as records are concerned, it is unlikely that we will tie this record for today. it is looking less and less like we'll get to 98 degrees, but 95, is high enough. and there is the predicted high for today. and the possibility, by 4:00, of a few afternoon, isolated pop up showers, and thunderstorm, and that possibility exists through this evening, remember to keep an eye on the sky later on, we're in the mid to upper 70s overnight, but, by friday, one of our computer models is keeping us in the 70s, others are taking us into the 80s, but doesn't look like we will get into the 90s again on friday, which means, three-day heatwave. and that's enough for most of us. 80 degrees in philadelphia right now. eighty in dover. 68 degrees in mount pocono. and the heat index, it is
4:48 am
already 85 in the city, already feels like 87 in wildwood. so, not enough of a sea breeze, i'm afraid, to cool thing off there. still under a marginal risk of severe weather, some of those pop ups could be strong to severe. but it look like with some rain coming in at least with some of the storm, probably will be a relief for a lot of us, and water your lawn, as well, you see some thunderstorms way up to the north, and big hampton, none that far is here at the moment, as we mentioned earlier, we don't really expect anything until later on in the afternoon, as far as showers and thunderstorms are concerned. but the possibility is there today. more tomorrow with a look at a cold front coming through. that will not necessarily cool us off a lot. still in the upper 80s over the weekend, but saturday, looks like it will be a low humidity day. and sunday, we are pushing 90. back to the 90s probably by the middle of next week, we may even end upgoing through this heatwave thing all over again. thomas and karen? >> again, and again, in the
