those dewpoints we're still pretty humid down south philadelphia places like millville, how about that dewpoint of 80 in dover. this is real humid air back in through here where you see that darker shade of green but up in philadelphia as expected those dewpoints are lower and we expect today to be less humid than yesterday. if you're out for a run this morning you can get it in in pretty good shape outside of that shower activity down south. 77 degrees by 7 o'clock. 83 by 10 o'clock. that's probably going to be dry just about everywhere across the region and by noon 88 and this afternoon sun mixing with some clouds, more sun to the north, more clouds to the south, 91 degrees is your high at'clock. and again there is the chance of a spotty shower or even a pop-up thunderstorm down south of philadelphia. i'll show you the latest model information on that and then we've got an uptick in humidity and more storms towards the end of the week karen. details ahead on that as well. >> so much to look forward to humidity and storms. how about police checkpoints let's throw that in there, too. this is i-95 approaching the vine street expressway. you see that southbound traffic headed towards penn's landing. we of course have the police
checkpoints blocking the left lane and the shoulder not allowing vehicles over 5 tons to continue on 95. not creating a problem yet but don't worry it will. that will come as well as the police check point down here on i-95 found in in southwest philadelphia near the exit for the platt and the schuylkill. right now speeds at 45 miles per hour. we saw those down to the single digits yesterday. watch for extra delays on i-95 and as more people take the schuylkill and the vine you'll see extra delays there as well. couple early problems out there. one accident on coats road in sharon hill an vehicle fire that's happening right now. this is in plymouth meeting montgomery county. you want to watch for that on ridge pike industrial way. what will happen today with the delays with all of the problems wet police checkpoints we'll be on top of it. now we head to mat at the dnc. >> thank you karen. never has a major parn our country nominate add woman

infuriated delegates walked out when bernie made his announcement to push his delegates to clinton's. they swarmed the media tent chanting the world is watching others had their mouths taped shut and others saying this land is your land. there have been at least two or three rallies and they've attracted the most people out of all the demonstration that is we've seen. other organizations have also taken to the streets of philadelphia trying to take advantage of the spotlight. the dnc has brought to the city. >> bernie made his announcement to switch his delegates to hillary the anger erupted. >> we know facts from the wiki leak e-mails the dnc had a clear consistent plan to disrupt bernie at every point of the way. >> reporter: and i mentioned that there have been several protests really a day for bernie sanders. today is no exception. i'veeen three already set up

>> ♪ >> so glad you're waking up with us. it is now 4:43. sky6 hd giving us this live shot there over the wells fargo center where all the action is happening for the dnc. >> this is gray hall's first time joining us in the morning. wonderful to have you here. >> pocket square. >> a little fancy this morning, yes. >> today is going to be hot again, day six of the heat wave but just barely and not all that humid outside of areas well to the south. as we take a look at storm tracker6 live double scan we're not completely dry either. there is a little shower popping in to southern areas and if i go he in closer on this you can see areas just to
the south of wilmington delaware are beginning to pick up some of this light to moderate rain and then it extends down through middletown delaware and smyrna and even dover the air force base picking up a bit of this and there's more rain out to the west. does look like this is going to be with us during the morning commute and then we get a lull and then later this afternoon perhaps a shower or a thunderstorm particularly in those southern areas. as we take a look outside we have cloudy skies over the airport with the promise of some sun today. i think it's going to be one of those days where the farther south you are the more clouds you see the farther north the more sun you see. temperatures warm this morning in philadelphia 79 degrees. your dewpoint at 66 which is moderately humid but not as oppressive as it was the last couple of mornings and the winds east-northeast not all that strong at just 5 miles per hour. future tracker6 showing that you any precipitation we do get this morning does appear to be off the map by about eight or 9 o'clock so during that morning rush hour period perhaps a little wet and most of the rain probably south of philadelphia although i can't rule out something popping up closer to home. then we get into the afternoon and the model right now anyway
wants to put some additional shower or thunderstorm activity fairly close to philadelphia. now previous runs have suppressed this farther south into places like cape may county and dover delaware and i'll be anxious to see the next model run which comes out a little later this morning. but we have to at least allow for the chance of some of this popping up this afternoon. then by early this evening it looks like it's pretty much gone. again, the best chance of that is south of philadelphia bullet we'l.the other part of ty looks like heat wave day six. we'll be at 83 degrees by 10 o'clock, 88 by noon. the heat not as intense today but if you get over 90 it continues the heat wave and it does look like we'll get to 91 by 3 o'clock. by 5 o'clock 85. again more clouds to the south, more sun to the north and that shower or thunderstorm activity is possible at times. high temperatures up to the north in allentown 92 with increased sunshine. 93 in reading. 91 in wilmington trenton and philadelphia. and then in the 80's through most of south jersey and delaware. down the shore it looks like mid 80's today. you'll still want the
sunscreen especially the farther north you go along the coast as we will get some sun in. 84 degrees is more or less the high between atlantic city down to cape may. a tad warmer in delaware. again keep the sunscreen handy and beware of the possibility of a shower or a thunderstorm particularly down south. tomorrow it looks like with a frontal boundary to the north and a low pressure center coming in from the west we get the return of hazy, hot and humid air. the heat index making it feel like it's in the upper 90's and there's the chance of an evening or nighttime thunderstorm. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, today's high is 91, continuing our heat wave, some sun. hot and maybe a couple of showers or thunderstorms around. then thursday hot and more humid with a high of 93 degrees so the heat wave will probably go into day seven but by friday not as hot and humid, 85 degrees. by the way, thunderstorms holding off until night on thursday and then continuing off and on through friday. for the weekend mid 80's on saturday and sunday, a you believe can of more spotty storms possible and then we start to settle down and draw that humidity down early next
week. when we're not on the air you can always get the latest true weather information on 6abc.com/weather and storm tracker6 app on your smartphone a good idea today and tomorrow and friday because of those spotty storms. >> all right, thank you david. >> yeah. >> ♪ >> new this morning's a driver hits and killed a pedestrian in south jersey. this happened on the route 73 just east of route 38 in maple shade at 9:30 last night. police say that driver did stop. investigators have nottest identified the victim. this morning there's no word if that driver will face charges. >> a car plowed into the middle of a south philadelphia restaurant. police tell us the driver lost control and crashed into pearl of the east in the 300 block of west oregon avenue. two people were injured one of them taken to thomas jefferson university hospital. police hauled the driveway in cuffs. l and i had been called out to determine the extent of the damage to the building. >> your time now 4:47. the dnc is generating some big business.
>> ♪ >> looking live right now outside on sky6 looking at the center city skyline. we've got a few showers south and west of the city and some clouds up above the city skyline. looking outside live on the roads, this is southwest philadelphia, i-95 by the platt bridge and this is one of the police checkpoints you can kind of see some cones over here, they're not allowing any vehicles over tie 5 tons to travel northbound on 95-ton continue through philadelphia so you've got to head off towards the schuylkill and the platt. this has been causing big delays coming out of delaware county for the past few days and we expect that to happen again today. little early just yet for you in problems though. we have an accident on calcon hook road at coates road in sharon hill. vehicle fire in plymouth meeting montgomery county right on ridge pike at industrial way you'll see emergency workers on the scene. some construction crews out and about in chester county. they're here on the turnpike westbound and that's between malvern and downingtown

dnc from the business angle. it is expected to help the region's bottom line. we're talking a lot of money here. it's estimated that the convention will bring 300 to $400 million to the greater philadelphia area. of course we won't know the exact impact until the week is over and they've done all the tallies but early reports from the business community say they are seeing crowds and that those crowds are indeed spending. u.s. stock markets finished mixed yesterday. futures are pointing it seems to a higher open overall this morning. people are taking this pokemon go thing really seriously. it is officially in a class by itself. the augmented reality game has reached 75 million down loads and only lunged in 32 of the 100 markets operated by the apple app store and google play. if that's only a third of what's out there they're going to keep going. the milestone puts pokemon go in a class by itself for first month mobile game down loads. there's a guy who got all the monsters. it was all he d he walked
