international. looking at philly international right now, 87% relative humidity, a breeze out of the south, at 6 miles an hour, and that southerly breeze is why it is so humid. sunrise time not until 6:38 this morning, here you see, some rain moving into northern new jersey, moving toward new york, that's well ahead of the cold front that's coming through later on in the afternoon, for us, here, in philadelphia, we have nothing but mostly cloudy skies, at this point. so, yesterday was wonderful, the weather was great, 82 degrees was the high temperature, little higher than the average of 80. much higher than that today. eighty-eight before the storms hit this afternoon. southwesterly wind, ten to 15 miles an hour, 62 degrees tonight. as we get gradual clearing after the storms are through. that's your foxcast from the weather authority. caitlin roth is here again. >> that's right, good morning to you, sue, good morning to everyone, we start off with the tac-pal. talcony palmyra bridge closed right now due to bridge opening. so that's all the information we have. when it then closes and then
you can access the bridge, we'll let you know. so right now, not go on the tac-pal. malvern, construction area there, got one lane blocked, that's 202 northbound. so, probably going to see some delays start to build as the morning commute picks up. finally 295 northbound, ramp to southbound 13, that ramp closed due to construction, so you can't use it, you will have to go around, take another on or off ramp. kerry? >> caitlin, thank you, 5:33, president obama going on offensive, outlining his strategy to take down isis. during national address from the white house, the prepared prepared the nation for the next phase in defending america against terror threats. fox 29's steve keeley live at the 9/11 memorial in lower makefield, and has more on the president's speech. steve? >> reporter: well, it was plan to put the president on national tv, the night before we all come to spots like this to remember where we all were, what we were all doing, 13 years ago, this morning.

exist, and partners, forces on the grounds. >> well, us intelligence thinks americans and europeans with us and british passports are among the thousands of people from all around the world, who have joined that terrorist group in syria and iraq, the fear is of course that they are getting trained thereto to come back here easy to carry out terror attacks like we did on this date 13 years ago. the president probably picked the best time to push for more money, more men and women, more air strikes to go after the terrorists in syria and iraq who probably peaked their public persona with the beheadings of the two american reporters just couple of weeks ago. kerrey, chris? >> steve, thank you. 5:35 right now. oh, man, happening now, we are waiting to find out the verdicts in the murder trial of oscar pistorius. >> so this could commas early as today at the latest we hear maybe tomorrow, friday. but the judge right now is
