from the west into places like chester county, delaware county and philadelphia but farther to the west some heavier rain and down to the south moving away from baltimore, a strong thunderstorm and that is triggering thunderstorm warnings highlighted in orange across new castle county delaware, kent county delaware and then we'll see whether or not they're extended later into south jersey. a closer look on that system and it is headed towards places like middletown and townsend between now and about a quarter after the hour. odessa about 8:17 and clayton 6:18. these only take about 15 minutes for the worst of it to pass you but along the way you're going get lots of lightning heavy downpours and perhaps that gusty winds ahead of the rain so a good idea to be to take cover indoors as they pass or at the very least stay inside your car because of the frequent lightning that we're seeing. don't what happened you in a car under a big tree that might fall down, though. as we take a look at temperatures and we are warm this morning again 76 degrees in philadelphia. 66 in allentown, 77 in millville. and the dewpoints up there in the 60's and 70's.

also breaking overnight a gunman is on the loose after opening fire and hitting two people at a hip hop concert in central jersey. the shooting happened outside the pnc bank arts center in holmdel monmouth county. two people were flown to nearby hospitals. a rappers j. cole and big sean had been performing at the venue when the gun shots rang out. the rappers also performed in camden at the susquehanna bank center on friday and they're scheduled to appear at madison square garden tonight. state troopers say the gunman fled into nearby woods. canine units are searching for him right now. someone fired a barrage of bullets at a front door of a house in camden overnight. this happened just before midnight on the 2700 block of saunders street. police say one person was taken to the hospital for an injury. no arrests have been made. and police are trying to determine the reason for the bullets being fired. >> philadelphia police find themselves in an intense standoff with a murder suspect in a brewerytown homicide and this morning that suspected
6:06 am
killer is still out there on the loose. it began with the fatal shooting at an auto repair garage on west cabot around 5:30. authorities say a 48-year-old man had been shot in the chest. police then discovered a trail of oily footprints that led them three blocks away. authorities believe at the time that the suspect had barricaded himself inside this home at 26th and girard. armored vehicles moved in as did a police swat team. they took a man into custody but it turned out he was just the roommate, that the man they wanted had slipped out of their hands. >> right now we do have a name of a possible suspect and police are holding various last known addresses from where this suspect has known to reside. >> police are now questioning a number of witnesses. >> some old school retailers are stepping up to compete with the likes of amazon. maribel aber has our market watch report live at the nasdaq in times square. hello, maribel.
6:07 am
>> hello, good morning to you matt. macy's and bloomingdale's will start same day delivery service in philadelphia this month. you order online, this is what happens, for five dollars more than the standard ground shipping fees, you can have the items delivered that day. the retailer launched the service in a few markets last year with the addition of philadelphia and other cities t-it will now be available in 17 markets. stocks tumbled yesterday after reports showed manufacturing in the u.s. slowed last month. right now futures pointing to a lower open and the report on factory orders is due out later today. if you feel like it's an icebox at work right now well if women feel cold in the office, it's with some good reason. most modern officers use climate control systems set to the metabolic rate of an average 40-year-old man weighing 155 pounds. that standard was first adopted in the 1960's but hardly represents today's workforce in the office according to european researchers. women tend to have a significantly lower metabolic rate than men which explains why we're all wrapped in shawls and blankets at work
6:08 am
and you you can't see it here matt and tam but i am running a small heater to my left because it is cold. >> wow. [laughter] >> there you go maribel. >> i think it's hot in here. >> i always have a shawl. >> in the studio they do keep it cooler. >> for the equipment and all that. >> we'll try and boost that up a little bit. >> thank you gentlemen. >> storm tracker6 live double scan, we have issues this morning. had some earlier thunderstorms that are over on the other side of trenton and now a second batch is coming in from the west and if we go in closer the areas of biggest concern new castle county delaware and kent county delaware where there are thunderstorm warnings in place for these storms and let me go ahead and just move the track edit on this a little bit and we'll get you the very latest arrival times for this guy right here which has been off and on showing some possibility anyway of some rotation which would indicate a storm that could produce some strong damaging wind gusts along with a lot of lightning. 23 lightning strikes from this line of storms in the last 10 minutes or so. if you're in red lion bear christiana new castle pennsville, penns grove, you look at the arrival time on
6:09 am
your screen, that's roughly when you can expect to see this storm come through and we'll see whether or not it maintains strong storm category. at the very least you'll get lightning and decent rain out of it. if we track this other one down to the south this guy here has even more intense lightning and heavy rain and back in here that little red arrow that you see the dark red arrow that's an indication that some of these storms may also be thinking about developing some rotation and a potential for some strong gusty winds f you're in middletown summit bridge jamison's corner odessa mcdonough and these other places on your screen including port penn, again those are the rough. eta's of when this will probably be in your neighborhood. the worst will only take 15 or 20 minutes to get past you maybe add a little bit more to that with the gusty winds out ahead. if you can afford to maybe give it another 15, 20 minutes past these arrival times you'll probably be in better shape. they're moving very quickly towards the east-northeast. the wide view shows you it's
6:10 am
that cluster some lighter less intense precipitation in chester county, delaware county moving back into philadelphia right now. as we take a look outside, we have sky6 and we even see some breaks in the clouds out there toward the shore right now. of course they'll close in again as we watch these storms move in later on assuming they do make it all the way over towards the coast. 76 degrees right now in philadelphia, 77 in millville 75 in cape may. still in the 60's up in allentown where you are getting a break in the rain. rest of the way as we go into the afternoon mostly dry. there is the chance of an additional shower or perhaps another thunderstorm popping especially from philadelphia south or south jersey and delaware this afternoon. that's the best chance. not a lot of it showing up on the model right now but the national weather service's storm prediction center is putting our area at a slight risk of strong gusty storms. now that would include anything popping this morning and anything that pops up again this afternoon. there's a slight chance of hail. i'm not real big on that personally. also a slight chance of an isolated tornado. thunderstorms this afternoon
6:11 am
not real strong but there is the chance of something popping that could be problematic and those guys that we've got right now do you know in the south i'd be careful of them and stay indoors because of the potential for strong gusty winds and again those thunderstorm warnings up right now in new castle county and kent county delaware. sun and clouds up in the lehigh valley today, still humid, 89 degrees. less of a chance of an afternoon storm up north. chance of a spotty storm down the shore. clouds otherwise. low chance of rip currents. and 92 is your high in philadelphia a mix of sun and clouds still on the humid side today. your exclusive accuweather seven days, we have these morning storms for another couple of hours this morning. then this afternoon a couple of more might pop up especially south of philadelphia. otherwise, it's clouds and sun, humid 92. tomorrow the big change. cold front gets off the coast. humidity drops. temperature dips a little bit and it will be more comfortable tomorrow with a high of 89 degrees and lower humidity. then thursday 82, even better temperature-wise although clouds will increase and then late in the day thursday and thursday night look out for
6:12 am
another round rain to arrive. this time it could be periods of heavy rain thursday into portions of friday. friday wie might also see a thunderstorm popping so one to 2 inches of rain on the way there but it looks like we're dry for the weekend. >> like following an episode of true detective, your forecast. >> yes, it is. it's confusing. a lot of stuff going on. we got -- >> thanks david. 6:12 now. losing control. a father goes to extremes to get back at his daughter's bullies. >> new at 6:00 some of these teens have been camping out in central park since sunday. i'd say they have a good reason why. we'll tell you why it is, matt. >> this driver is camped out. i don't think he wants to be. his vehicle broke down in the northbound lanes by woodhaven rowan. delays on the schuylkill expressway. we'll check them out after the break. >> a stunt man says don't worry about that surfboard i'm just going to take my motor bike out to sea. see the wild ride later on

6:31 am
downpours and maybe a little bit of blustery wind ahead of it. if you're in chambersville bayside or down towards shiloh bridgeton and deerfield the times on your screen are the rough eta of this storm and it's not going to take that long for the worst of it to get past you. maybe 10, 15 minutes. but if you have the option of waiting 10 or 15 minutes after those times you might have a better time of it. there's a couple recent lightning strikes farther to the north but most of what you see in the north is just light to moderate rain highlighted in greens and yellows. 76 degrees in philadelphia right now. 66 in allentown, 75 in avalon. it's also on the humid side with some dewpoints in south jersey in the 70's an occasion of very moist humid air. that 67-degree dewpoint reading in philadelphia now down to 66 is also fairly noticeable humidity. as we roll through the day it's hot and humid again today. by noon 87 bee 3 o'clock that's your high 92 and by 6 o'clock 88. chance of a shower or thunderstorm possible up in

"action news" was there as karley green returned to her north philadelphia home last night. she was greeted with that bouquet of balloons and a welcoming party from the local

dead. state police say 250 people were inside the tent in lancaster last night when strong winds lifted it up. a father and his young daughter were the ones killed. at least 22 others were taken to the hospital for injuries. the storm moved through quickly packing 60 miles an hour gusts and hail. spectators say the giant poles unside the tent crashed around them. >> it just went completely dark inside and we see the circus people are starting to leave the tent and somebody's screaming get out, get out and all of a sudden i looked to my left and i see sky. >> the national weather service had issued a severe weather watch for lancaster at the time. >> now back to the breaking story unfolding right now in central jersey where there's an active search for a shooter. >> the gunman is wanted for wounding two people outside of a hip hop concert in new jersey. we have an update on what we know. calla. >> reporter: good morning.
6:37 am
those two people shot are now in critical but stable condition at an area hospital but now the search is on for the shooter. actually behind that police tape in the woods behind me there's a number of police looking for that shooter. the shooting happened just before 11:30 after the j. cole concert let out at the pnc bank arts center here. j. cole is a hip hop artist who attracts a younger artist and witnesses tell me there were a number of teens in the crowd a witness who took his 13-year-old daughter to the concert said problems started when some guys made some comments to a woman in the parking lot about her body. there was an exchange of words and moments later that witness said it sounded like firecrackers going off. he grabbed his daughter and took off for cover. he even snapped some pictures of the two victims raping on the ground surrounded by concert goers but it's just too graphic to show you this morning. we can tell you that j. cole has not tweeted a thing about this. we did check but his concert tour does continue tonight at madison square garden where
6:38 am
security will likely be arched. live in holmdel. >> we're keeping an eye on storms moving through right now. sky6 captured dramatic lightning strikes over the city less than an hour ago. david has had his eye on it all morning. >> he joins us right now. these storms have been moving quickly through our region. >> they have. there's another little cluster down to the south of us but looks like it's dying away. storm tracker6 live double scan the one cluster of thunderstorms that hindered us earlier is now over by new york but you see another cluster of showers mainly in and around philadelphia. as we go in tighter no recent lightning strikes from any of what you're seeing here. but there is steadier rain pushing into media delaware county. that's blue route 476. that's about to pick up some additional rain and new castle county delaware, wilmington, pretty much on the other side of that steadier precipitation. in wilmington you're down to lighter rain. still certainly a nuisance but in another three or four
6:39 am
minutes it will probably start to break apart. cherry hill, philadelphia, kind of in and out of the moderate precipitation. and we still have one thunderstorm left over. this one is farther south. you can see it pushing out of new castle county delaware right on the southern half beginning to cross the delaware bay but really falling apart and the last recorded lightning strikes are actually back behind it in areas south of middletown. it doesn't look like this current batch is still producing lightning. things improving for us and if we leave you with the live view you can see a lot of the region is dry but some of you still dealing with rain that's steady enough that it will slow you down but not as bad as that stuff we had earlier. cloudy skies across the region. every now and then you see a break in the clouds away from those rain cells and it looks like things will begin to dry out quickly this morning and we'll see sunshine reemerge. temperatures 76 degrees right now. your dewpoint in the mid 60's. that means it is on the humid side and of course we still have that southwesterly wind blowing up bringing that humidity into play. 7 miles per hour.
6:40 am
not real breezy out there. in terms of precipitation, the rest of the way today well, most of the day just looks like a mix of clouds and sun. it will get to be hot this afternoon and humid but there is the chance of an additional pop-up shower or perhaps a thunderstorm particularly in areas south of delaware. late at 9:30 you see something off the coast of the wildwood. if anything were to pop this afternoon or this evening it could potentially be strong although i don't expect many of you to see that. we do have a slight risk of severe weather, though posted across the region and this is not only for the stuff happening this morning but anything that does pop this afternoon. there's also a slight chance of hail. i'm not real big on that frankly and a slight chance of an isolated tornado. most of the afternoon and evening looks fine but if you hear a running mate indoors on rumble of thunder indoors and lower floors. this will be the main story for most of you. by 2 o'clock 91 and your high today at 3:00, 92, hot and
6:41 am
humid once again today. we'll have to wait until later tonight for those humidity left to start to drop. 92 in philadelphia, 89 today in allentown. these are your highs. 90 in reading. down the shore you're in the mid 80's and a little bit better there. still humid. not a big chance of rip currents at the shore today. and 70's in the water. for the phillies tonight partly cloudy skies, 87 to 79 your range of temperatures as we do drop off the and the humidity should start to lower. hot and humid today, look out for a spotty storm here or there and then less humid tomorrow, a high of 89, still very warm but feeling a lot more comfortable tomorrow. and then a high of just 82 on thursday below average for a chinch. increasing clouds on thursday, though and there will be rain arriving either late in the day or at night and at times we could see periods of heavy rain thursday night and in through a good deal of friday. periods of rain friday a thunderstorm flown as well. clouds break and the rest of the weekend looks dry.
