11:17 am
we are tracking the possibility of severe storms moving into our area and that's going to start closer at 3:00 and i'll show you the exact timing and which cities are more likely to see these severe storms plus temperatures keep warming up and we'll warm into the mid-80s and by thursday and friday we're headed for the 90s for the first time this year. the first alert weather day because the chance of severe storm which is could produce heavy downpours and heavy flooding will be a possibility. here is a live look outside from philadelphia. it's just a mix of sun and clouds and that will change over the next couple of hours and wind speeds out of the south-southwest at 15 miles per hour and it will gust at 25 miles per hour and we could see gusts associated with the severe storms, as well. 72 in allentown and 72 in quakertown and 76 in philadelphia 74 in northeast philly right along the shore we're at 67 and we have warmer air coming up from the south and that's going to help contribute to some of the thunderstorms
11:18 am
that we'll see. the entire area has a chance to see thunderstorms and that's what the green mean but the yellow highlight here is a chance for severe thunderstorms and we show you exactly who is at risk and it's mainly allentown and redding out to lancaster county and these areas in the highlighted yellow have a chance to see wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and hail will be a possibility and heavy downpours. so that's the concern as we head into the rest of the afternoon. our radar shot shows quiet conditions and we saw passing showers earlier this morning and most of the precipitation is off to the west here and it's moving in ahead of the cold front and it will track to the east as we head through today. here's our future weather that shows what will happen. by 3:00 that's when the first alert goes into effect and we will see a chance of showers and thunderstorms right outside of our region as we push closer to 4:00 5:00 that's when we'll have a better chance for the poconos and lehigh valley and we'll have another chance right around 9:00 p.m. and another round of these storms moving through and that's going to take a while for all these storms to
11:19 am
make it to philadelphia and you'll notice as some of these storms that start to track to the east and we'll start to weaken a bit and we'll see a few isolated thunderstorms for the philadelphia area checking down into wilmington and also into trenton and eventually we'll start to see more moisture heading to the south of us. for today, our temperatures will warm into the mid-80s and we are watching for those severe storms and the best chance will be for the poconos and lehigh valley stretching to lancaster valley and north hampton county and leading into tomorrow we have another chance of scattered storms and not as bad as what we'll see today and temperatures push into the low 90s by thursday and friday. the 10 x philadelphia conference takes place this week and it will be held thursday at temple university. this year's theme is a timely been. joining us to tell us more about it is one of this year's speakers bonnie varnesky and we welcome you, rhonda. i'm a big fan. i read you all of the time. >> that's so nice.

11:21 am
president's task force. so i'm sure that he'll be speaking around that issue. jeff robertson who is the head of the national constitution center will be speaking about privacy. marcia levity who is a very well known and well-helped attorney for juvenile rights will be speaking and those are the bigger names and there are people who have awesome ideas, like really interesting ideas and they're ideas worth sharing and that's what i've enjoyed about ted conference is you don't know what you'll be hearing and you are going to leave thinking differently about things and that's the promise. >> quickly. do you have limited time? you may have 14 under 15 minutes. >> we have 18 minutes max and it is hard to take a big speech and try to carve it down and most are 18 minutes and some are a little bit shorter. >> so the event is on thursday and there are still tickets available. so if anyone wants tedx philadelphia that's where they can get tickets. >> this year's tedx philadelphia

11:33 am
chance. we will see the rainfall moving in closer to 11:00 p.m. for philadelphia and camden and gloucester county into trenton and we'll have a better chance right along the shore to see some of that activity. i'm tracking how much rain you can expect to get warmer temperatures in my seven-day forecast coming up in 20 minutes. thank you, brittney. >> big problems in colorado as flooding and dozens of drivers stranded on flooded roads last night had to be rescued and it's all thanks to a fast-moving storm that dumped an inch of rain on an already-saturated area and even a fire truck got stuck in the rising waters. that was in the denver area. checking out our other top stories right now. sky force 10 was over this oil truck that flipped over in mount laurel just within the past hour. you can see the oil leaking out. the driver somehow got out. he does not appear to be hurt but emergency crews are nonetheless, checking him out as a precaution. there weren't any other cars involved and birch hill drive is

parent typically women. >> correct. >> what was that like having spent most of your day with your kids and a lot of the stay-at-home moms get dropped off on the island bear grylles when he interviewed that that was a relief. >> to leave this environment that i'm in with women and to spend it with guys to me that was a relief. i was looking forward to that. i was not looking forward to missing my family, but that actual experience is what compelled to want to do this. >> we were talking during the break and you were telling me that they didn't have any camera crews there. there are no production teams there on the island. you are all there by yourselves and you're shooting each other with cameras right? >> that is correct. >> tell us about that process. there was no production crew and there were four professional cameramen. the difference is that they were surviving just like us. they weren't affording any other advantages and we were truly filming ourselves and i think that's what makes this show
11:48 am
extremely special versus other survival shows that we've seen in the past. >> you were telling me also that in the first two episodes you felt that they were pretty true and they've got to edit this down to show this on network television, but you felt that they stayed pretty true to what was happening on the island. >> i'm pretty ecstatic with the production team and the storyline producers and the editors. so far in the first two episodes they seem to follow a 1 to 1 ratio of the truthful experience on the island and that's exciting. there's a lot of integrity behind this show and so far it's representative of that. >> now when you were chosen they told you -- you were told that you were there for -- like between a month and two months. >> when i was chosen they didn't tell us anything. they marooned us on an island with just the clothes on our back and said they'llyou'll be here
11:49 am
from four to six weeks. >> and then they just left. >> and then they just left. it was a water entry and we had to jump off the boat and swim 250 meters from the cove and that was it. >> i'm from the south pacific and i know that's not unusual for the islands and you have to jump out because of the reef otherwise you damage the boat you're in and swim to shore and this was one of those deals. >> it was. the cove is full of rocks and you can't bring the boat in and we jumped over the boat and we got onshore and we had to lug all of this equipment with us and then let the survival begin. >> rob brothers you're here so we're glad that you got off the island safely and we look forward to seeing more of it. you can watch the newest episode of "the island" at 10:00 p.m. on nbc 10. thank you so much. >> thank you so much. thanks for having me. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist brittney shipp. >> good morning. it's a first-alert weather day.
