the lehigh valley, no big deal, system in central part of the state, seems to be deteriorating as it moves eastward. so we'll keep an eye on this situation, like we said, just few light showers this morning in lancaster county. you know you can never rule out a pop up shower or thunderstorm. so the 90s returned yesterday, with high temperature of 93 degrees. and guess where we're going today, back to 93. watch the sky of course, for pop up showers, and thunderstorms, hazy sun, humidity, winds out of the southwest, you know the drill, bob kelly, than is just the beginning. >> crazy, you said 81 already at 4:02 this morning. good morning, everybody, getting up, getting out on a thursday, live look at the vine expressway, closed both directions between the schuylkill and broad street. again it is all part of the overnight construction. i came through this detour this morning, which is the parkway, and kind of go around the circle there in front of the cathedral. the traffic lights are out in that construction zone. so, if you are coming into
town for the next hour, just be careful. they're not blinking, just totally out. i actually didn't even realize i just went through the intersection, because there were no traffic lights. i don't know whether the lights are out because of the overnight work project, purposely, or whether they're knocked out and they have to get the crews throughout to hit the reset button. live look 95 northbound at cottman avenue, off ramp in northeast philadelphia, otherwise, good to go on 42 and 55, if you are coming in from south jersey, the commodore barry bridge, doing some work into pennsylvania, the flower street off ramp is closed all week. and are you ready for some football? we got it four. eagles, buccaneers tonight, south philadelphia the showdown. kick off at 7:00. that's going to throw a little monkey ben franklin notch our evening rush hour here. you will have a lot of extra volume headed into the stadium complex, septa running extra trains on the broad street subway tonight for all of the sport fans, again, shuttle buses running until 5:00 a.m. when they do kick in on the

for people in north philadelphia that know him, like the woman you will hear, or that have children that know him, is that he worked for a philadelphia public school and local day care center, as well, that you see in our video. >> very shocked that the person that we new for so long has been around our children and working in our schools and day cares and no one ever know. and i think every day that i go to work that my kids are safe, and they're not. they're being molested and so we need to get to the bottom of the story. we also need to know that when he got hired for these spots, that something need to get done. i mean, i'm really hurt. he was a brother to me. i'm really upset. and i have to go home and question my neices and my nephews and the kids and the kids in the neighborhood. >> well, there may be even
more victims and more things in this neighborhood that police don't even know about yet. so they're now asking anybody who came in contact with this guy, who maybe was too embarrased to tell police or even their parents about it, to come forward. chris, lauren, how long has he been doing it? how many kids affected this who knows. but he's been doing it from 2013 until just last week. so that can give you an idea how many victims he may have lured on line. >> years worth of work. thanks, steve. >> one man dead after late night shooting this happened after 1:00, 2900 block of germantown. police say they were in the area when they heard gunshots. that's when they noticed a man with several gunshot wounds, another man running from that scene after a brief pursuit, 23 year old was taken into custody. the gunshot victim taken to temple hospital where he died. no word on if any charges have been filed at this time. >> hunting park, police

we noel be playing in the second half, sam bradford won't play at all. so chase daniel gets the start. but again, regardless of who plays, who doesn't, we know the birds will be literally feeling the heat along with the fans because it will be a hot one here tonight. back to you. >> yes, so hot, i can't even believe you're wearing a sport coat. >> there is a little bit after breeze, but i might end up taking it o that's why i brought out the polo. >> good for you. >> he looks sharp. >> he does. >> he captivated the country climbing more than 20 stories, straight up the side of new york city trump tower using suction cups. we have the moment police finally wrestled him inside. >> boy, did they wrestle him. it got rough. i pinky promised my little girl a fabulous

>> we got to 93 degrees, the 25th time this year, we reached 90 or above. and yes, the start of our fifth heatwave. we can pretty much -- usually guarantees the weather but we can pretty much guarantee 90 days or above, high pressure in control, winds rotate clockwise around the high, that bridges in all of the moisture from the south and the southeast and the southwest and just all comes up from the low. so excessive heat warning continues today through saturday. officially kicks in at noon but it is already hot and humid out there, by the middle of the day today it will probably feel like it is well above 100 degrees. here is your forecast for the
eagles pre-season opener, hot and humid at 7:00. about 88 degrees then. by 9:00 it is still steamy with 85 degrees. then later on, by the time you're probably leaving, it is still in the 80s, warm and muggy. we will probably stay in the 80s through the night. right now we have temperatures in the 80s at the moment. 81 degrees, 80 in trenton, 78 in pottstown, 79 degrees in wildwood, 71 degrees in mount pocono. but, yes, the heat index is going to be up there over the next couple of days. we will take a look at that and little more depth coming up. but as far as precipitation is concerned, little bit of rainout in lancaster county. we have 93 degrees for today, in fact, 90s all the way through monday, it looks like, with temperatures finally getting into the 80s, but the threat of thunderstorms does not leave us. so it stays pretty unsettled, pretty humid, the entire time. welcome to the real august, bob kelly.
