6:03 am
202 and it's a much different shot right here. here we're looking dry on the schuylkill expressway east of 202, that's your eastbound traffic towards the blue route. really looking good at this point. you're dry and the low clouds not as much of an issue on the schuylkill expressway. looking at the big picture, schuylkill is in pretty good shape. on i-95 we have this disabled vehicle, it's southbound near girard. it's offer to the right shoulder. some slowing in that area looking about 31 miles an hour. not seeing any slowing. no remember they had that construction that began overnight last night from girard to allegheny that kind of extended that and three lanes still opened at this point. not seeing a problem right there. delaware, 495 shut down if both directions between terminal avenue and 12th street. a lot of people taking i-95. we see delays with that, not just yet. right now it's a 16 minute ride so i-95 northbound in that area and southbound looking pretty good, matt. >> thanks karen. developing this morning a philadelphia restaurant owner fell victim to a home invasion overnight. the robbers climbed in through a second story window.

6:09 am
forest of the week. storm tracker 6 shows you a cluster of thunderstorms off the coast, another cluster just to the west of philadelphia and extending up through reading. everybody else is dry right now. as you take a look at this thunderstorm a little bit closer to philadelphia, that's a pretty good thunderstorm. it's producing a lot of lightning. it's not a severe storm because it's moving too slowly to provide us with any real super gusty winds. the biggest issue with this is that heavy rain that is moving so slowly that it is taking awhile for it to cross any given area. you could be dealing with this heavy stuff for maybe 20, 30 minutes and that's going to be enough to put some ponding and puddling on the roadways. it's also pushing into parts of new castle county, newark right now seeing some thunder and lightning and of course that heavy rain pushing through mushroom country and chadds ford is probably going to catch a little bit of that before too much longer. towards the east in gibbstown and woodbury a couple of smaller little cluster of showers is starting to pop up.
6:10 am
chester also seeing some of this. then if we go out a little bit wider you can see that philadelphia international airport right now is seeing one of those pass through and more to come. philadelphia dry for now but some of that lighter stuff probably hits us a little bit later and i'll leave you with the wide view, reading also look, at moderate to steady rain but it's real that thunderstorm down south that's producing the heaviest downpours. as we take a look outside, we have cloudy skies, muggy conditions and in some cases some fog. in center city i don't think you would call that fog 'cause it isn't all the way down to the grounds but it's certainly low lying cloud cover that's obscuring the tops of some of the sky scrapers. 70's degrees in philadelphia right now and it is muggy. still just 67 up in allentown and sea isle not reporting but we've seen numbers in the upper to mid 60's there as well. future tracker 6 between now and 8 o'clock shows you that there is the possibility of some of these showers and thunderstorms developing through the region. they're not going to be everywhere all at once but where they hit they could produce some heavy downpours. by noon there's the chance of some lingering shower activity and then later in the afternoon when we start to get warmer you'll see some of this
6:11 am
stuff firing up again, again clouds, some sunny breaks and occasionally a passing shower or thunderstorm. this is the 6 o'clock view. not raining everywhere but the possibility of some stuff exists by 11 o'clock there's probably a lot less out there. in allentown, we're going for a muggy one and a warm afternoon, too, a high of 82, clouds, some sun, humid an thunderstorm obviously possible. and down the shore, also, you know, choppy on the beach. 66 to 68 in the water. a high of 76 but clouds only a few sunny breaks and a shower or a thunderstorm is also possible down at the shore at times today and tonight. 83 is the high in philadelphia. clouds, some sun, humid, a passing storm and as we roll through the day you can see how we are in the low 80's pretty much through the afternoon with that high of 83 probably around 3:00 or 3:30. tonight at the ballpark, muggy. 79 degrees for the start of the game. phillies and padres. 74 by the end of the game and there is the chance of a spotty storm that could delay things. tomorrow we'll have a warm front really kind of a stationary front that backs
6:12 am
down over the region. it will be warmer down to the south and west of philadelphia, a little cooler to the north and east but still humid and still a bit unsettled tomorrow. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, a high of 83 today, warm and humid with spotty showers and thunderstorms. tomorrow a little drier overall. a slight chance of a shower, 79. and then thursday and friday i would say thursday afternoon and through the day friday a chance of more drenching downpours. friday's probably the most active day of all but i could see some of this on thursday afternoon as well. for now, saturday, probably drying out quickly in the morning and sunday is looking good for father's day. hey, hey. >> good day to get those ties on. >> and the after shave. >> that's right. >> thank you, david. 6:12 now. next on "action news" more stories you did not see last night including the man in this tower of terror who shot up 30 feet in a matter of seconds and survived. karen. >> we've got a new problem right on i-95. you see the flashing lights and the jammed up traffic right here. i'm going to tell you where this is and how slow it is. we're going to check out the fog in other areas as well

developing during the morning hours is now beginning to get a little bit thicker at philadelphia international airport. no word on delays just yet but that's something to keep in mind if you're flying or for that matter if you're driving around. 70 degrees is your current temperature, dewpoint 67. that's pretty high number for your dewpoint and that indicates that muggy air. winds are light out of the east-northeast at five. future tracker 6 showing you what the rest of the day is likely to amount to. and between now and 8 o'clock it does look like there will be more of those scattered showers and perhaps some drenching thunderstorms here or there across the region. we get up to noon it's a little bit more of a spotty precipitation pattern. most of are you dry. and then you get into the warmer part of the afternoon and that's when we'll be on the lookout for the development of more of these drenching showers and maybe a couple of thunderstorms. by 6 o'clock, there's still a bit of this around and then we get up to about the 11 o'clock period and there's less and less. so again like yesterday it won't rain everywhere and it won't rain all the time but where it does there's the potential of that drenching downpour. as we take a look at the forecast for today we're going
6:40 am
with a warm muggy day, 71 degrees by 8 o'clock. 77 by 11 o'clock. and then we're in the low 80's for the rest of the afternoon with a high of 83 probably hitting around 3 o'clock. your exclusive accuweather 7-day, today's high 83, warm and humid. a passing shower or drenching thunderstorm can't be ruled out. still humid tomorrow but a better high of 79 and while there is still a chance of a shower or maybe a thunderstorm .verall it looks drier then on thursday particularly in the afternoon more heavy drenching showers and thunderstorms are possible, a high of 79 and through the day on friday with a cold front ana gdg5, warm and humid morning. otherwise we see improvement and father's day sunday is looking sunny and warm and probably not as humid. >> thank you david. a reminder 6abc on "gma" week continues. our own cecily tynan is backfilling in for ginger zee who got married over the weekend. adam joseph takes over laid eight this week and we'll speak to cecily live from there "gma" studios in about 10 minutes.

>> ♪ >> 6:44. it is tuesday. hello everyone. the waves lapping at the beach here at cape may, new jersey. don't see any fog here but we do have some in other areas plus storms moving from the west. >> time of the morning when things start to slow down. that's what we see behind karen rogers. good morning. >> that's right. the schuylkill expressway always a good bet for that slow traffic. 1346 our areas it's raining pretty good. as we look live on the schuylkill near city avenue you can see the roads really not terribly wet here, just a little touch of fog maybe in the distance. that's not causing a big problem. nonetheless we're looking at heavy traffic westbound on the schuylkill expressway. you could see it right now and you're looking eastbound at, a 23 minute ride from the blue route to the vine, westbound a 22 minute ride so getting pretty heavy in both directions but this particular shot showing that westbound traffic really slowing up right there. i want to take you to the new jersey overview right here. i'm looking at some of these slow speeds that have popped up. only 16 miles an hour on 55 northbound as you head around
6:45 am
that curve to 42. even 42 itself 23 miles an hour so that's pretty slow. let's pull in a camera view of 42. this is your northbound traffic right here and i've seen this get heavier just during the commercial break so we can see the wet roads at this point so it's raining out here now and that's slowing things down. we're seeing the fog as well. it's now a 25 minute ride just had a live update on the air from the a.c. expressway to the walt whitman bridge and those are sensors telling you exactly what people are traveling right now. so to give you an idea and so you can see it kind of slowing up right before your eyes right there. let's also mention here some of the delays we're picking up in delaware. 495 remains shut down in both directions here between terminal avenue and 12th street. we've seen some extra heavy traffic on i-95. it's now a 24 minute ride from 896 to 202. that may be in part because of the extra volume. you can take that neff story 95. you could take 295. it's a much better ride right now so it might be worth it. one of the reasons you may be extra heavy on i-95 in delaware is because that's where we're seeing some of the
6:46 am
heaviest rain centered. on storm tracker storm tracker e scan, look at these areas of red and yellow. those are really good downpours right along night. 95 stretching through newark through wilmington and up towards the pennsylvania line and chadds ford you're getting a thunderstorm right now. you can see those slashes there showing you the lightning that's happening as well as the downpours and along the route 1 media bypass in philadelphia we can see some of those cells that just spilled into new jersey onto 42 and the new jersey turnpike as well so be careful as you're traveling out there in some of that heavy rain, tam. >> thank you karen. a doctor in washington state had his license suspended for allegedly sexting during surgeriesly according to the state health department dr. arthur zilberstein was the anesthesiologist during these operations putting the patients at risk. the seattle doctor is also accused of having sex at the hospital and accessing medical record imaging for personal gratification. dr. zilberstein has 20 days to request a hearing.
