5:01 am
clouds coming in later. the only significant fog right now is along the north jersey shore between belmar down to surf city but these are really low visibilities that have developed a little bit more out to the west of baltimore. elsewhere just patchy fog here or there this morning as of right now. 46 degrees in philadelphia currently. so, it's not quite as chilly as it was yesterday morning. even allentown has now jumped above the freezing mark. 42 in trenton, 41 in wilmington, almost 40 in millville and the mid-50's down the shore right now. and as we head out the door early to get that car started or maybe catch the bus between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00 looking at temperatures hovering in the low 40's up to about the mid 40's, mainly clear, cool and not much wind and as we roll through the day it is a mild one today for veterans day. 48 by 9 o'clock, up to 61 by noon. and the afternoon really looks great for any services or ceremonies that there are going on across the region. 67 degrees in philadelphia. that's your high at 3 o'clock and by 6:00 we're still holding onto the low 60's. still looking at that cooler air coming in later in the week, karen.
5:02 am
i'll have the latest anybody's from accuweather. >> all right dave we've been watching for patchy fog. 95 at academy, no visibility issues here. we're clear and dry. this is your southbound traffic there headed towards center city. the overnight construction is clear. your lanes are opened so you're good to go on i-95. on the big picture tacony palmyra bridge i told you about some construction there but it's clear so the tacony flee is just fine. you can see speeds on i-95, schuylkill and the blue route mostly in the 50's at this point so no issue heading out. matt and tam i have been talking about this fire location at the ymca. you may still see some crews on old york road. officially shut down between susquehanna and adams avenue. stick to highland avenue and hupping ton road to avoid any problems left over. in cherry hill camden county construction blocking the two right lanes and that's for about another hour, 295 southbound approaching route 70. other than that you're good to go this morning, matt and tam. >> all right, here's another reason we're good to go.

eagles are seven and two thanks to their clobbering of the carolina panthers. >> mark sanchez shows he belonged behind center and under the bright lights of monday night football. the former jets first round draft pick threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns and sanchez did not commit a single turnover. the win helps place the eagles among the elite teams in the nfl and breathes new life into sanchez's career and brings the question will nick foles be forgotten? >> after the game mark sanchez stopped in south philadelphia to celebrate. he had a cheesesteak. "action news" reporter katherine scott is live with the exclusive story. good morning, katherine. >> reporter: good morning, tam. that's right, last night mark sanchez celebrated and like many here in our fair city, he celebrated with cheesesteaks from pat's and geno's. all this cheesesteak eating all hinged on an eagles victory. here is the promise that he made to jon gruden leading up

5:06 am
>> four men were injured during a fight inside the physical industrial correctional center. chopper 6 was over the facility in holmesburg last night. investigators say the four inmates are in the hospital, all of them in stable condition. none of the security guards were injured and two weapons were recovered. it's now 5:06 and police are looking for the man who drove a corvette purposely into the delaware river as an apparent act of revenge directed at his estranged wife. investigators say the 1990 red corvette belongs to the man's wife. police believe the man who drove the car into the delaware yesterday afternoon then climbed out of the water and his name is john kramer, he's 49 years old from northeast philadelphia. officers say he then called his soon to be ex-wife and told her that he had destroyed the car. investigators say kramer has violated several restraining orders filed by his wife and that he will face reckless endangerment and other criminal charges once they find him. >> the midwest getting hammered and we are getting
5:07 am
out the sun chairs, the tanning lotion. [laughter] >> sunscreen today, okay. going to be mild and it's nice 'cause it's veterans day and there are ceremonies out there. going to be nice weather for that. storm tracker 6 double scan shows you we're dry. as we take a look outside we have sky 6, center city, easy to see the buildings. there is some patchy fog around the region, most of it along the north jersey coast and some more might develop over the next several hours but year not seeing it in center city and even if it does is it a of the to pop up here and there i don't think it's going to be around all that long. right now 46 degrees in philadelphia so cool enough for coats but a little better than yesterday. we were running about maybe, six, 7 degrees cooler than this in most spots yesterday. 35 degrees in allentown, still kind of chilly there. 39 reading, 42 trenton, 40 wilmington, 39 millville. mid 40's up and down the coast next to that mild ocean water. satellite showing that you there's not a lot of cloud cover out to our west once we get rid of this early morning cloud cover that we're looking at right now. we'll very likely transition
5:08 am
to mostly sunny skies for at least awhile and then if we start to filter in some clouds later in the day, that will start to hold the progression of temperatures in the mid to upper 60's but still it looks like a pretty nice day out there. as we take a look at the call in allentown, nice afternoon ahead in the lehigh valley. 65 degrees, sun mixing with some occasional clouds, maybe a little more cloud cover later in the day. pleasant, though, with light winds. down the shore light winds, fair amount of sunshine early, perhaps some later day clouds and 66 degrees is the high there. so, also nice. and in philadelphia we're going to go for a high of 67 degrees with the sunshine early and then a few more clouds digging in as the day goes on. it should be pleasant. if the clouds wind up holding off a bit and we don't really see them thicken up until closer to sundown we may actually go higher than that 67. wouldn't be out of the question to get 68 or 69 this afternoon. either way you slice it it's going to be nice though. still cool by 8 o'clock, 45. up to 57 by 11 o'clock. 66 degrees by 2 o'clock with that high of 67 around 3 o'clock this afternoon.
5:09 am
we're still looking at that cold air that has now pushed into the central states, wichita kansas right now at 27. two more mild days until that cooler air pushes towards the east but it won't be as raw as it is out in the central states as that air moderates as it heads to the east. up above average for the next couple days and then below average anywhere 8 to 12 degrees below average thursday and friday with an average high of 57 and 58. not quite the significant arctic plunge there's seeing in the pacific states. nice and mild veterans day, 67. a mix of clouds and sun on wednesday with a high of 65. so two more mild ones. then on thursday it becomes brisk and cooler, 49 degrees is the high. at nighttime see the possibility of a little sprinkle or shower and it might even be cold enough for some wet snowflakes on thursday night. this is not going to accumulate but just to mention that we might see the season's first snowflakes in philadelphia on thursday night. brisk and cold on friday, 45.
5:10 am
saturday 45 and sunday we are looking for a coastal storm that may brush us with a little bit of precipitation and that could also be a snow shower or rain shower. just a reminder that on thursday at 11 o'clock on "action news," we are unveiling our winter weather outlook from accuweather. how much snow are we going to get? is it going to be above average? below average? what about temperatures? we'll take our best shot at that thursday night at 11 o'clock. >> more news you didn't see last night including the rescue operation to reach 15 stranded hikers out west. >> a newly released report details what happened inside the clinic where joan rivers suffered a fatal complication. karen. >> we're live right now in morrisville bucks county, this is route 1 at pennsylvania avenue looking pretty good at this early hour. we've got construction, though, causing an issue with one of the ramps in the area. details coming up. >> and everything's better with peanut butter. if you feel that way there's now a way to drink it uply we'll explain -- it's like bacon, it makes everything better. later in the morning buzz. >> ♪
