11:20 am
just broken by a degree or too 2, just obliterated. a drastic drop in temperatures coming tomorrow and a real wet pattern thursday through sunday. we're already up to 69 in philadelphia, and that southwest wind is helping do it. and it's just going to keep going. the snow is gone, the lehigh valley, the fog is gone, so they're already 70. so look at the sunshine all across the area, and that is a change from yesterday. and it's reflected in these temperatures. already tying a record in reading at 70, tying wilmington at 70. atlantic city marina only 54 because of that wind coming off that 41-degree ocean but rehoboth beach has already hit 70 degrees. and where are we? 10 to 15, even 18 degrees warmer than we were at that time yesterday. and we were setting records yesterday. so today is going to be a good bit warmer across much of the area.
11:21 am
now, of course it's not going to be in the 70s right at the jersey shore. 54 in atlantic city, 54 in cape may point. it's already 71 in mays landing. look at the difference over just a few miles and the reason is the wind direction. and the southwest wind keeps the jersey beaches on the cooler side. we had record warmths in pittsburgh yesterday, another warm day here. washington is already 74, but chicago, really warm, a day or two ago, they're 29. dallas was in the 70s and they're getting freezing rain and it's still below zero in rapid city. so we're going to get a piece of that cold air coming in. we're not going to get the real surge, just a little bit of it. but here we are today, everybody's setting records. some by quite a few degrees.
11:22 am
wilmington may break there's by a half dozen. that's a lot to break a record by that much. we're dry now, but here comes the rain, that band the rain right where the temperature contrast is. that's no coincidence. and that area is headed this way. as we go through the afternoon, we're in the 70s, but here come a line of showers, maybe even some thunderstorms coming up through the poconos tlat afternoon and through the philadelphia area into the evening hours. i do not know how that just happened, but i'll get the extended forecast coming up a little bit later. >> we'll see you shortly. thanks, glen. still ahead, cracking the case. details on a promising new treatment that could help children suffering from peanut allergies. >> announcer: nbc 10's olympic medal count is locally sponsored by independence blue cross. live fearless. >> the medal race keeps on changing. norway remains in front with 33.

11:31 am
we continue ton update you on our flerlt traffic because there's some real issues out there the especially on the neecht extension. fill us in on it. >> the issue starts in lansdale. there were four vehicles involved. it seemed seems to be two box trucks and two tractor trailers. five injuries reported right now on the northbound side of the pa turnpike's northeast extension. since it's headed northbound it's diverting all traffic owl currently around lansdale and back on at quakerston. you don't want to be stuck in that diversion you want to get a
11:32 am
head start from that. so from what i would say right now, this is route 309. 3 is nine is a good idea for an alternate. if we pull out further, route 202 looks good. we're not seeing delays, it's a typical afternoon right now in the surrounding area. so diverting yourself around before you get on the extension is your best bet. but a heads up, there's also a crash on route 309 but luckily this is on the southbound side. if you're trying to head northbound, you probably won't run into this, but just in case somebody was driving around the area, we do have an accident on the southbound side of the detour on route 30 nine around north wales road. back to you. >> thanks for that. the other big news we're watch noug, fire destroys a delaware county home. this morning neighbors are concerned about the man who been living in the house in collindale for years. nbc 10's dray clark is lye at the scene where crews still searching for that homeowner. dray. >> reporter: yeah, rosemary, that's the biggest concern, the whereabouts of the man who lived here at the 900 block of pittman
