good morning. >> doesn't karen look nice with that flashing light behind her head. we'll find out what that is in a couple seconds. we got a lot of clouds this morning. the farther south you go into southern delaware you have a chance of a little bit of shower. that yellow box is the thunderstorm watch we had yesterday afternoon. it's now expired and we didn't really see anything too severe fortunately. a lot of cloud cover around though and at times some of these showers may actually clip areas south of philadelphia. as we look at temperatures this morning, beneath the clouds, visitor degrees in 50 dn wilmington, 49 degrees in millville and 50 in cape may. notice how that wind not all that strong but it is coming in off the ocean and that's going to keep us a little bit cooler today. on the bus stop this morning look for primarily cloudy skies, 48 degrees by 6 o'clock, 49 degrees by 8 o'clock and as we go through the day, we're going to be warming up a little bit but it's going to be a lot cooler than yesterday and probably an afternoon where a jacket might still be a good idea. 50 degrees by 9 o'clock, 54 by 11 o'clock, 58 degrees by 1 o'clock. we'll struggle to get to 60 by
about 3 o'clock and i don't think we're going to see that high of 62 until pretty late in the day probably around 5 o'clock this afternoon. i'm allowing for the return of some sunshine but honestly with a frontal boundary parked close by to the south of us it's looking like the best chance of that is north of philadelphia, maybe the city and areas around 95 get a little bit of that. pollen count despite yesterday's rain is still a little on the medium high side but it is going to be lowering over the next couple of days. of course we also have more chances of precipitation. karen rogers we'll talk about all of that coming up. now we can get to the flashing lights. >> the flashlights and that's because of a day. we have penn do the on the scene with this. this is i-95 southbound right near 322. we've got the left lane blocked. so as you're heading southbound towards delaware you want to watch for the left lane being blocked. wove got penndot and a disabled vehicle out there in the left lane. new castle county we've been talking about this accident on 202 at if you can road it had been blocking the left lane in each direction. it has since cleared. traffic moving better right now. all lanes back opened on 202. not the case on the
pennsylvania turnpike eastbound though. we've got construction out here between bensalem and delaware valley. it's blocking the right lane and we still see that area of yellow so slower go right now with the lane being blocked on the turnpike eastbound. live on the vine street expressway no overnight construction. it's all opened. everything is clear. westbound just a few cars headed towards the schuylkill a few more cars headed eastbound but no delay and roads are pretty dry, tam. >> thank you karen. and we're following a breaking news story. two plainclothes officers were injured in a bizarre hit and run crash but police say the incident was more than just that. "action news" reporter katherine scott is live from the scene at 15th and parish in north philadelphia and she fills us in on the developing details. good morning, katherine. >> reporter: good morning, tam. and police are still trying to make sense of exactly what happened here. the investigation continues. those two police officers were taken to hahnemann university hospital where they're being treated and they're expected to be released pretty soon but let me show you the scene right now here at 15th and
parish. you can see there's some crashed-up vehicles here. this is the second scene of the two. this all started overnight at broad street and brown in spring garden. two undercover officers were driving in an unmarked pickup truck when they were broadsided by another vehicle at that intersection. that vehicle took off and the officers were taken to the hospital. meanwhile a 33-year-old driver of a white ford that you see here on this scene pulled up to the scene of the accident and apparently told police he got scared. for some reason he got out of his ford while it was moving and then two people separate from the first accident saw the car engine running. they got into the car. they took it. they went south side on broad street. they ended up here on 15th. this ford hit a moving car head on and then hit a parked car. the man in the car was not injured. and neither was that person who the car was stolen from. so, police are looking for at least three suspects at this point and they're trying to
get more details together on what exactly happened here but again, three suspects at large for two separate accidents nearby. we are live in north philadelphia, katherine scott, channel6 "action news." >> thank you katherine. going on to the primary day results. donald trump and hillary clinton scored huge victories bringing them closer to a dual to the white house in the fall. hillary clinton got four out of the five states in play and trump swept the republican side. last night trump set his sights on clinton. >> well, i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going and frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote. >> well, if fighting for women's healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in. >> clinton now has 90 percent of the delegates needed to become the first woman nominated by a major party. republican candidates ted cruz and john kasich have vowed to keep running with the lope
that trump will fall short of the delegates needed to ensure the nomination and that there will be a contested conventio convention. >> democrats backed their party's establishments choice in the pennsylvania u.s. senate race. katie mcginty beat joe sestak. she'll take on pat toomey in novemberly we caught up with both candidates. >> we need to continue to forge a path for middle class families so that economic security isn't just something we aspire to. it's something that we will achieve. >> and for the next six months day in and day out we're going to continue to deliver an optimistic message about economic growth and opportunity and the security. >> moving on to new jersey now, one of the biggest prizes in the last in the nation primaries voters in the garden state will head to the polls on june 7th. >> it is now 5:06 and developing this morning one person was killed in a crash in wilmington, tell wear, overnight. this happened on route 202

a little sprinkle popping up today but it looks like the main stuff will probably be further to the south. you could see that one creeping through on the model at around 10 o'clock this morning. timing might be a little off but the idea here is that the morning remains pretty cloudy and ma ebb a little damp at times. as we go into the afternoon there is the chance that we start see some sun returning especially up north. the late evidence of evident modelatest model run hay as well. clouds mixing with sun, better chance up north of seeing the sun returning later. 65 degrees is the high so obviously it is cooler than yesterday. down the shore we're going stay on the cool side too with a high of 58 degrees, mainly cloudy at the shore. you'll have a hard time get something sunshine back. if it happens, it will be later and again that spotty occasional shower coming through at the shore. in philadelphia we'll go for a high of 62, mostly cloudy, mainly dry, perhaps some sunshine coming back late in the day. cooler than it was yesterday by quite a bit and winds out of the southeast at about six
to 12 miles per hour so not all that windy. overnight we start to clear out. 49 is the overnight low in philadelphia. i could see some suburbs maybe going down to the low 40's so definitely chillier in this coming overnight period and then tomorrow 61 degrees, a similar number but with a warm front close by once again, we will be looking at another round of rain arriving probably in the afternoon and evening for the most part. about a quarter to a half inch of rain and the latest model projection shows that you up until about 2:00 we're mainly dry and after that just a little bit on the damp side. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, today's high is 62 degrees, mostly cloudy skies, 61 tomorrow with that rain coming back in the afternoon, light rain for the most part and then some more rain possible on friday particularly early in the day and a high of 60 degrees there. for the weekend, saturday 66 and partly sunny. good for union fans. and then the broad street run looks okay in the morning. in the afternoon on sunday, we may see the rehe introduction of a couple of sprinkles and showers. we're hoping it holds off
