the app's creators say well, you must be at least 17 years old to download it. but there is no way to actually of course keep kids from signing up. yellow claims to already have 5 million users. all right. to an amusement park now that's in japan and was forced to shut down its newest feature. their ice aquarium and it's all because of complaints of what's below. it is a skating rink that had 5,000 dead fish frozen underneath the ice. the space world theme park said there were 25 different kinds of fish in this new attraction. well, some were arranged into words and shapes. eight opened customers started complaining on social media. they called it tasteless and sinful. the park says the fish were already dead when they bought them. they will now remove the fish and hold a religious service for them before using them as fertilizer. that definitely a big talker

4:49 pm
southeasterly direction. there is the sun early on in the day, the clouds marching in from the south and west, couple of sprinkles in western parts of pennsylvania but as we widen out the majority of the rain is still in parts of the western ohio valley, the tennessee valley and that sinks all the way down to the south where we're tapping into the gulf of mexico and severe weather watches are popping up in the form of tornado watches in parts of jackson, mississippi and just to the north of new orleans, louisiana and again, rounds of rain will be passing as a strong jet stream carves its way up the eastern seaboard. so, for tonight it's cloudy and mild, a few showers developing by dawn especially in our pennsylvania counties, 41 in the suburbs, 46 degrees for center city with a southerly wind. large low pressure is spinning right now in the western great lakes and it's going to pretty much stall there and what that is going to do is create a jet stream south of this low that pushes to our north and west. this is a river of air that will help ignite rounds of
4:50 pm
energy that will ripple along that jet stream and kind of follow that path. so, again, one coming in tomorrow, the next one coming in on wednesday and in between the two days about one to 2 inches of rain likely. warm air surging and even the chance of a thunderstorm to pop especially here on wednesday. so, at 7:30 tomorrow morning, you see some of those showers philadelphia, especially to the north and west. then the radar will be filling in. you can see some of these brighter oranges and yellows with moderate to heavy rain. this is lunchtime here on tuesday, even pushing to the coast. then as we get into the evening rush, could be very slow especially north of philadelphia, kind of along a track here with that area of energy mainly working to the north and west that kind of fades as it sinks to the south as we catch a break here tuesday night early on wednesday and then the next round of heavy rain comes in late wednesday morning. this is 11:00 a.m. and this will continue into wednesday evening. so, the exclusive accuweather
4:51 pm
7-day forecast, it's periods of rain here tuesday into wednesday. much needed rain. well above normal temperatures in the middle and upper 60's. even the thunderstorm late on wednesday but it dries out by thursday morning, sun and clouds, great day thursday at 56. breezy, sunny and bright friday at 53. looking great on saturday, 51 degrees. some late clouds developing on sunday of 49. and we could see another pretty sizable system possibly coming in late sunday into monday at 52 degrees. so, we're starting to see kind of that early winter pattern developing when we start to get these big storms to push our way. right now the track is to our west which always means warm air comes in ahead of that storm and it's not in the form of frozen precipitation. >> allall right, thanks adam. >> how about a live look outside right now as we show off our eagles pride here at 6abc from the street along city avenue at monument road you can see part of our
