11:17 am
it's hanging over some parts of delaware, the southern half. and just parts of cape may and atlantic county getting a little bit of rain, too. still, this is not heavy rain, necessarily, but you see this pocket of yellow here, that's steadier stuff that's about to move into cape may county. you might get a good burst and that will continue to sea isle city and move off to sea. and this rain is on its way out, it's only going to be in place for a couple more hours. temperatures today, really cool, considerably lower than the last couple of days, because of the cold front that passed us this morning. 63 degrees in the afternoon, center city. 61 in lansdale, and cookstown, only in the upper 50s. right now some spots in the lehigh valley are in the low to mid-50s. not going to warm much more at all through the afternoon. a little sun is the only help. trent trenton, 60 degrees for this afternoon and 61 in hamilton. a few lingering showers over the shore in parts of delaware, rehoboth beach only at 61 degrees and wilmington at 63. wind forecast for the rest of the day, still going to have those cool winds that are coming in from the northwest.
11:18 am
about 15 miles per hour, sustained, and gusts up to 25 are still possible, which means a breezy afternoon out there. not terribly strong, but enough to kind of be an annoyance. this cold front is just bringing some annoying weather. but if you want the cold air that makes you think of fall, you won't think this is too annoying. watch this. so hour by hour, here goes the rain, by about 2:00 p.m., it's off to sea. the clouds are still kind of hanging over a good portion of our viewing area. we go to 5:30, now the clouds are thinning, but i think they'll still hold tight over this zone. so you may see some sun, but not a ton, quite yet. overnight, things start to really clear out. when you have clear conditions overnight, the heat of the day, the heat from the ground can all release out into the afternoon, which means the temperatures at the ground, they get cool. and we are talking a cold air surge with this wind coming from the north-northwest. so by tomorrow morning, check out the temps. 36 in allentown. 39 for doylestown. and low 40s in areas like philadelphia. so it's really going to feel like fall tomorrow morning. chilly conditions out there.
11:19 am

11:36 am
county and cape may co out. in the next half hour or so, that will be moving off. and with we'll be left with are a few sprinkles here and there along our coastal pots. even that should be out of here in the next couple of hours. just the clouds sticking around throughout today. temperatures, the rain itself thanks to a cold front passage, and that cold front was cold. we're really not going to see much more warming into the afternoon hours. so we're at 59 in philadelphia right now. dover at 63. i think that some temperatures will get to the 60s and we'll talk more about that coming up. i'm going to bring you back now to that breaking news out of wilmington we have been following where two children have been found dead. this is a live look from sky force 10 along west 9th, where police are conducting that death investigation. i want to bring in nbc 10's tim
11:37 am
furlong, who is on the scene. tim, what can you tell us about all of this? >> reporter: -- on his way up at this point and the bodies of the two children, they're still inside the house at this point. detectives have been in and out. they're waiting -- the crime scene unit squlojust showed up they're weighing for the medical examiner to show up before they take the children out of the house. the mother of the children is with police right now in for questioning at this point and the chief of police is on his way to the scene. he was here earlier. he's going to come back here with an update on some investigation. as soon as we get that, i'll bring it to you. and i want people to know, west and ninth adams is a street that runs parallel to i-95. traffic in this area is pretty bad at this point. so you might want to stay out of this area. this is the trinity vicinity neighborhood of wilmington, they call it. and it runs on i-r95, right nea delaware avenue. this area is a little bit of a nightmare to get through right now, as police continue to investigate, two children found inside the house at ninth and
11:38 am
west adams. i'm sure you can see from sky force 10, the police presence here, the forensic team is here, detectives are in and out. and again, the mother of the children is with police officers right now, d headquarters on fourth street, being interviewed to talk about some of the circumstances of the case. as soon as we get more information here, we're going to be sure to bring it back to you. that's all for now, live from wilmington, i'm tim furlong. >> quick question. i'm watching these police officers where this crime scene tape. it's a little difficult to see, but how large is that area? i see maybe one part of the home, but how large is the area that they have blocked off here? >> reporter: it's a quarter of one block. so it's pretty much limited to the one house on the corner there. i don't know the view you're exactly seeing from sky force 10, but you're looking i think at the side of the house. and you ca sice by the ba door of the house. it appears to me there are a number of units in this house, at this point. so that's what we're trying to learn more about.
11:39 am
the front door is open and there's an officer there on the west ninth street side, but it appears they're focusing on the entrancen the adams street side along i-95. that's where most of the activity in and out has been at this point and they're bringing out the mobile unit right now. the big tractor, rv coming out. that's a mobile command center they're going to use, because clearly they're going to be here for a while investigating what happened here at this point. we can also tell you, as we put up, we smelled a smell of natural gas in the air. and everybody sort of noticed that. it was hard not to notice it. and all the windows in the house are now open, too. we're not making any conclusions at this point, but it's certain something we certainly noticed when we pulled up to the house. and that's something we'll ask chief tracy about that when he arrived here shortly. >> one more question for you, tim. we have -- it is this back door that sky force 10 is focused on. we have been watching this picture more at least 15 to 20 minutes and we keep see investigators come out. have you seen them bring
11:40 am
anything out of the building? >> reporter: not since i've been here. i think they're pretty much locking down the scene, essentially, and keeping things as is until the forensic team could get here. that should probably start pretty soon, now that the crime scene unit is here and the medical examiner, again, is on his way. so i think that's going to start moving forward here a little bit, shortly. but at this point, they haven't really been bringing much out. you know, in my experience, it seems like they hunker the scene down here and try to make sure everything is secure, so they can get a really good read as to what is actually happening in there. >> tim furlong reporting live for us in wilmington. we know you're going to stay on the scene. we'll let you do what you need to do, gather, and talk to the chief, as well. we'll check back in with you on the air and. but tim furlong on the scene of aette the investigation involving two children inside this home where sky force 10 is live. we're going to keep you updated. tim, thanks for that. moving on now, two words are sparking a movement on social media,ighligainst women.

october is breast cancer awareness month and this wednesday there is a focus on a national initiative to help patients learn about their options for reconstruction after breast cancer search. dr. joseph is the chief of plastic surgery at penn medicine and he's here to talk about breast reconstruction awareness day. he's joined by barbara sutter of westchester, one of your patients. so there's been a lot of discussion and debate about breast reconstruction surgery. talk about the pros and the cons. >> so, the pros are enormous. the pros are that a patient can have a complete reconstruction of their breast and if there's an enormous amount of emotional impact of that. many, many women say they feel whole again after their best reconstruction. but there's also an important physical component. without breast reconstruction, it's very hard to find clothes that fit.
11:46 am
it's also almost impossible to find a bathing suit that will fit. so there's both an emotional and a very real physical impetus to do breast reconstruction. >> are there any cons? >> so the cons are it takes additionalsurgery. and some patients are not u to either making that decision right away or they're just not up to having the additional surgery. and that's fine. >> barbara, you've had two cases of brarns aeast cancer and had reconstruction surgery earlier this year. tell us about that decision and what women should know about the whole process. >> my surgery was march 1st. i had a left breast surgery two years before in 2014. it was a very long process, to understand the different options that you had. but once i got into the peer-to-peer program at penn, which meant that i could speak to other cancer survivors, i spoke to three or four different women ranging from 72 to probably 42, and they helped me through it a great deal.
11:47 am
the first comment that the older lady had made was, it made me feel whole again. just like dr. serleti said. and the sooner you do the reconstruction, the less traumatic it is. because you feel the same body. i feel like -- it's only been less than six months for me, or just about, but i feel like i have the same body. i can wear my clothes even better. my doctor said people pay a lot of money to get this done. and i look great in my bathing suit. so i have to say, it's a good choice. >> all right. dr. joseph serleti, barbara sutter, thank you very much for being here. >> you're welcome. >> appreciate where are time. penn's breast reconstruction awareness day celebration is happening this wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the smilow center for translation research in civic center boulevard in philadelphia. check the nbc 10 app for more details. >> announcer: now your nbc 10 first alert weather.
11:48 am
all right. let's talk weather now. we'll begin with our first alert radar and satellite. still some spotty showers that are lingering just up against the jersey shore and our delaware beaches. but what a difference even half an hour has made. now it's just a few sprinkles that are lingering and most of the rain has started to move out. a little spot shower that's still hanging over some parts of south jersey or delaware, but really now the focus is the clouds that are still overhead and the cool conditions that are in place. look at the forecast hhs for today. not very high, at all. when i say "high," these are afternoon peak ottest temperature of the day and that likely happens at 12:01 a.m. across the region. we've just been cooling ever since that front passed. 63 will be the peak in the afternoon for philly. low 60s for areas like the shore and delaware where those spot showers are starting to come to a close. many of us will remain mostly cloudy for the rest of today. take a look our hour-by-hour here. the rain are pretty much out by 2:00 p.m. still left with temperatures mostly in the upper 60s. a few low 50s, lily.
11:49 am
the cloud base will start to pull out, but for some areas, you might keep the clouds pretty much the whole day. and at night, that's when really everything clear clears. a clear overnight allows for temperatures just to plummet. so we expect that by tomorrow morning, it will be chilly. it will feel like fall. you'll want a jacket as you head out the door. 36 in allentown and reading. 35 for lancaster. low 40s for areas like philly and mt. holly. even millville in the low 40s. and some warmer temperatures right up against the shoreline. these temperatures are going to feel what you would think of when you're talking october. and as a result, there's a frost advisory put up by the national weather service. up in bucks county through the lehigh valley into the poconos, as well. just the northeast corner of our viewing zone. not a freeze watch or warning, but a frost advisory. this is the lowest level. but nonetheless, temperatures in the low to mid-30s in these areas are possible. mostly, i think, mid-30s is more likely. 2:00 to 9:00 a.m. is when we're expecting this tomorrow morning. sensitive plants can certainly be affected by this kind of
11:50 am
frost. though some patchy frost, so just a heads up for folk in those areas. it's that time of year. let's talk about the ten-day on 10. 63 degrees today. even cooler tomorrow. remember, we're starting out very chilly. we'll only get tonight a 61 in the afternoon and plenty of sun out there. we'll keep with those sunny, clear, driy conditions through the rest of the workweek and temperatures will start to pick back up, so by next week, upper 70s will in the forecast. it is an exciting time to be in the philadelphia area. global philly 2017 is a 45-day international event that is now underway. and here to tell us all about it is the executive director of the global philadelphia association. thanks for being here. >> it's my real pleasure, thank you. >> so this event happens every other year. tell us about some of the highlights. >> sure, it's an incredible event, really highlighting what's going on globally in philadelphia. and among other things, we've got the unity cup, which is a soccer tournament going throughout the expo.
