you can see how that rain, the main batch of it is now beginning to push away from the area up here around trenton, you're going to see it kind of pushing away and then there's some additional shower activity out to the west of us that may try and roll through a little bit later this morning but generally we're expecting a transition from startup with rain and then to some partly sunny skies later on. i'll just give you a quick look on storm tracker6 live double scan. again that one batch of rain pushing away from trenton leaving some wet roads behind it and then we have lighter precipitation out to the west. a big batch of it that's slowly migrating toward harrisburg and may eventually push in toward our northern suburbs. if you're in reading and pottsville over the next hour or so, maybe you see some of that, maybe not. a little blip down by baltimore as well. as we look at temperatures, we're looking at a cool start across most of the region. 63 degrees in philadelphia right now. dover 66. and it looks like mid to upper 60's up and down the coast. notice how some of our reporting stations aren't
reporting this morning. they have some maintenance issues at the national weather service but we're hoping they get that pulled together. may look like some of our outlying smush may be in the upper 50's right now. it looks like it's warm again, not quite as warm as yesterday. 76 by noon and your high today at 3 o'clock will be 79 degrees before we fall back to 76 degrees bicep clock 7 o'clock tonight. >> all right, dave, roads are a little wet, slow it down as you head out but we're looking okay right here. this is the schuylkill eastbound at the vine street expressway. we had construction shutting it all down but everything's reopened. your lanes, your ramps, no problems right now. crews return tonight at 11 o'clock and shut the vine down. we'll be watching for that. want to go live to center city with this apartment building fire, 11th street near vine street. not quite as many crews as we saw a little bit ago. stick to ninth or 13th to
avoid a day delay. river road at sealed planned upper herm at this point they're clearing things out and lanes are back opened o construction on 95 northbound between the delaware service area and route 273 blocks the right lane. they'll be out there until 6 o'clock. this accident is over here on 347 northbound at 47. this is in cumberland county. it blocks the right lane. it's a downed traffic signal with this accident so it may take a little longer to clear that one matt. >> thank you, karen. breaking overnight a teenager tries to run from a hail of gunfire in south philadelphia but is struck by one fatal shot. jeanette reyes is live at police headquarters with the latest on the homicide and the search for the shooter. jeanette. >> reporter: good morning, matt. police found more than a dozen shell casings but one gunshot is what killed this teen. police are talking to his brother and another witness. they're hoping that will help them track town the killer. take a look at the video --
this shooting happened around 11 o'clock last night. the 18-year-old victim was hit once in the back. this is as he was trying run away from the gunman. he stumbled into a home where we believe his family was and that's where he collapsed. relatives called philadelphia police and officers took the victim to children's hospital in a patrol car. he was originally listed in critical condition, then pronounced dead just two hours later around 1 o'clock this morning. >> they found that there was around 15 shell casings on the 2300 block of south marshall street as well as blood inside a property where the victim ran into. there was also blood in a projectile outside the house. >> reporter: now, in addition to those witnesses that police are interviewing, they're also looking for any surveillance video in the neighborhood. at last check, overnight they were not able to find any surveillance cameras but
