mainly on sunday. we do have a chance of showers tomorrow. isolated ones tonight. but the main threat again later in the weekend. the temperature held town by doe clouds today. so one of the reasons that we're not seeing showers and thunderstorms. let's see how the temperatures are going in philadelphia itself. at the airport, it's 75. 76 in parkside. 75 winchester park. so no areas have gotten anywhere near 80 degrees. and we're not getting near any kind of showers at the moment, so we're ending the day a whole lot drier than we started it. we had several hours worth of rain this morning. and we do have other areas of rain that are going to be affecting us. there is moisture from the mississippi valley, there is a disturbance from the northern plain states. so we have some pretty strong systems coming in as we go into
the latter portions of the weeke weekend. now, showers and saturday are more in the isolated maybe scattered areas and we'll show you as we go through the night tonight, there is not that much going on here. but look as we go into tomorrow, you'll be able to see, yeah, there is some -- just some smaller little showers, that means that if you get rained on, it doesn't last all that long. not necessarily downpours or a lot of lightning. most of this is on the light to moderate side tomorrow. so you will be kind of dodging some showers. and probably not reaching the shore tomorrow. but sunday is a different story. sunday we could see one round of showers and storms in the morning. and then you see these areas of reds and purples, those are some pretty strong to possibly severe storms. again, they're mostly scattered and not everybody getting them, but we do have a first alert
because the ones that do exist could be quite strong. all areas aside from the jersey shore, this is mainly for sunday afternoon and evening and for localized severe thunderstorms with some very strong gusty winds. and the greatest threat is in this brown area that includes southern portions of our area from chester county, delaware southward. but we could see some strong storms just about anywhere in our area. and one of the places we could see some of those storms is in the poconos. big nascar races up there this weekend. tomorrow partly sunny, warm with thunderstorms. sunday up to 80 degrees with showers and storms and then monday, we have some showers moving out of that area. for tomorrow, the neighborhoods are showing us mostly cloudy skies, it gets warn and humid, 86 degrees in tfox chase, 84 in
reading. so warmer than it was today. still a fair amount of clouds. fog in atlantic city and that will be our main story for tomorrow at the shore. sunday again, that is a different story. more on sunday and next week in a few minutes. and more breaking news to get to. this time an oil train jumping the tracks and bursting into flames. live pictures, this is in oregon about 70 miles east of portland, you can see the fire and the thick black smoke pouring out. investigators say eight cars derailed, one caught fire. people have been evacuated within a half mile of that crash site. again, this is about 70 miles east of portland, oregon. count on nbc 10 to bring you updates as soon as we get them. one massachusetts police chief started a ground breaking approach to treating the nation's heroin epidemic and it's having an impact right here

you see some of those firefighters feeding some rope down off a crane to keep him up. the victim is in, quote, definite danger according to officials. crews have reportedly used these ropes to keep him from sinking any further, but they are still working to pull him out. no word yet on how he became trapped. and more breaking news right now to tell you about, this out of oregon. an oil train jump the tracks and burst into flames. this is other video you're looking at. it's about 70 miles east of portland, oregon. that camera in the chopper is moving. there is thick black smoke, fire. and investigators say that about eight cars derailed. one of those caught fire. people have been evacuated within a half mile of that crash site. again, these are not pictures of that of course, but we'll keep you updated on this story.

and it's for sunday. sunday afternoon and evening the most likely times for any kind of severe weather this weekend. severe storms, localized damaging winds. the ground is very wet. and it won't take a whole lot of wind to knock over some trees. we have temperatures in the low to mid 70s. a couple showers in the p.a. suburbs and peeks of sunshine this and out philadelphia pushing us up to 75 degrees. but tomorrow, we're talking about temperatures into the 80s in many parts of the area. so that will be a toomtstally different type of day. on the radar, not a whole lot close by. we're getting pounded in washington, d.c. if you're headed down that way. but elsewhere we just have very,
very patchy light showers. so i don't think the phillies will have significant trouble with the game tonight or any of your outdoor activities. could be an isolated shower, but the chances go up a little bit more tomorrow afternoon. and then even more on sunday. a lot of the sunday events could be affected by the weather coming in. and here is your overall weekend forecast. more sunshine tomorrow, pushing temperatures in to the 80s. very humid all weekend, but much higher risk of showers and storms at some point during the day sunday, probably an 80% to 90% chance that parts of the area will get rained on. so that is a fairly sure bet. the question is how strong the storms are going to be. more on what to expect and when in just a few minutes. in western pennsylvania, some people had to be rescued and evacuated after heavy overnight rains caused flood.

sk jay gray, nbc 10 news. we'll go back to the breaking news this chesterfield a man trapped in a grain sil low. crews have used ropes to keep him from sinking any further.in him out. no word how he became trapped. we're gianted on the pho ejoine retired fire chief. john hoffman. you're not at the scene, but what can you say that they're doing looking at the images? >> well, obviously in this type of evolution, it's a very technical rescue and there are a lot of different hazards associated with this this kind of work. first they have to be sure that the atmosphere that is contained inside take silo is safe and it look like they have ventilation
equipment to make sure that the oxygen level is at the proper levels and that they can make proper entry and there not a hazard from lack of oxygen. additionally, it sounds like they may have an engulfment hazard that would be common in certain confined spaces which obviously they have that possibility with this particular type of scenario. they will have to send some rescuer in there to secure the victim that is trapped in some way and hook him up in the proper kind of harnesses, free him from whatever devices or whatever mechanisms can keeping him trapped and safely remove him. >> we know this is such a delicate rescue. tell us how they pre-vechbt tve individual from sink further down into the grain?
>> it's difficult to determine that from what can be seen here without actually being on scene and knowing the full circumstances of what is in the silo. i would guess that they have certain lockout-taggout procedure misplace that would prevent any movement of any mechanical equipment that would cause the grain to shift or whatever is contained in there to shift or move so that he can't go any further in addition to stabilizing him in where he's positioned, wherever he is in the vessel. >> and officials have told us that this man is this definite danger, a man trapped inside that grain silo. on the phone cuwith us, we appreciate your time, former chief john hoffman of the washington township fire department. thank you so much. we'll make sure that everyone stays updated as we see someone a worker, a firefighter emerging from that silo, still no sign of

we had hours and hours of rain this morning and a good bit of the area. but that's not severe weather. that is just kind of uncomfortable weather. inconvenient weather. what we're likely to be getting on sunday is more serious. that's why we have a first alert out for that. all parts of our area except for the jersey shore mainly for sunday afternoon and evening and we could speak some isolated severe thunderstorms with damaging winds, gusts well over 50 miles per hour, also large hail. ground very saturated from all the rain we got in may, so it won't take a lot of wind to knock over some trees. we have temperatures in the low 70s right now. p.a. suburbs only 71 degrees with a couple little showers around. radar not showing us anything
too impressive here. you can see the little green dot indicating some fairly small and also fairly light showers. here we are in lehigh valley, poconos, pretty strong storm. we'll see if that moves eastward. but there is a lot of moisture back to our west and up into the northern plain states. and what they're getting in texas, most of that is staying down there and of course you can probably see some of the disastrous results. you can see your "7-day forecast" at the bottom of the screen anytime during the weather cast not just for philadelphia. you don't have to wait until the end anymore. with a little bit of sunshine tomorrow after the morning fog and clouds, that would push temperatures well up into the 80s. humidity is high, so it will be a sticky day. and then some scattered thunderstorms developing in the
afternoon. newtown 84, easton at 85, a lower chance of getting showers and storms in easton during the day tomorrow. atlantic city, main issue there i think will be fog especially in the morning. so you were delaware, dover, rehoboth beach with much, much lower chances. and speaking of the shore, here is the forecast for wildwood. during the day tomorrow, early clouds and fog and then a little bit of sunshine. sunday we'll get late day thunderstorms, some could be strong. and then monday we get a lot of sunshine. so again, looks like sunday is the problem day. cape may, early fog, then a little bit of sunshine tomorrow afternoon, sunday, thunderstorms, especially late, but not all day. and then monday, we get the sunshine. in the pocono mountains, they have had big races going on there. nascar race. it's not going to rain all
sunday, but there is the potential for a strong thunderstorm especially during the afternoon. warmest day is tomorrow. monday looks to be dry. and as we go through the next couple of days, we just see some of those isolated showers on the futurecast. a little bit more tomorrow. watch what happens tomorrow. now you see some scattered areas of light, mostly light showers. during the afternoon, there is a little patch of orange or yellow once in a while indicating a little bit heavier shower. but they're widely scattered. that means that your chance of getting rained on at any one time is not too high. but as we go into sunday, that's a different story. you see some of those yellows and oranges and redses we could get one batch in the morning and another batch later on during the afternoon. and the 10 day outlook shows the temperature down a little bit
sunday. monday is dry. tuesday we get some showers. and then wednesday is dry. thursday is dry, too. and then friday some more showers. so at least we get multiple dry days in the forecast. eagles linebacker helping the local community. >> he will host a benefit concert tonight. bar win's make the world better foundation will be on vepg spring fwar dep street and eagles players and coaches will be in attendance. is this the third straight year barwin has hosted the benefit contract. proceeds help restore philadelphia playgrounds. not everyone knows just how to ride a bike. so these students in south philadelphia got to learn from the pros. nbc 10 in south philadelphia, a pro cyclists gearing up for this weekend.
