6:47 am
>> all right. we want to move onto another story that we've been following. in the wake of that deadly train derailment in philadelphia there is a question many people are asking. what are the odds you would survive if something like this happened to a train you were actually on. >> nbc's stephanie gosk reports it may all depend on where you're sitting. >> reporter: the aerial over train 188 tells the deadly story. that's the first car ripped apart. the second car didn't fair much better. at least two of the passengers killed were in those two cars. where people choose to sit on a train can determine whether or not they walk away from a crash. >> i've always told my wife to sit in the middle of the train. >> reporter: larry mann is the author of the federal railroad safety act. >> i've been involved in railroad accidents since 1970. i've analyzed numerous accidents. the middle of the train is by far the safest. >> reporter: there is no definitive study, but there are recent examples that suggest the
6:48 am
first and last cars can be the deadliest. whether the accident is an ontrack collision or a derailment. in 2008 a california commuter train barrelled into a freight car. 25 kills, 22 of them in the first car. in 2013 a commuter train derailed killing four people. all were sitting in the first three cars. if you can find a seat in the middle car preferably on an aisle away from windows, it doesn't necessarily eliminate all the risk. in a derailment every single car can topple over. in the uk a broken rail crash killed four people. all of them were in the seventh of nine cars on the train. trains still remain one of the safest ways to travel. in the u.s. in 2013 only six train passengers lost their lives. compare that to the 28,000 deaths on the road. the seat behind the wheel still far more deadly than any seat on
6:49 am
a train. stephanie gosk, nbc news, new york. so let's talk weather because -- >> that's what i'm here for. this is perfect. >> everyone's talking about the rain coming later. but this is going to -- it's not any reason to cancel your outdoor plans. >> no. not just yet. but you will have to have -- if you're having an outdoor wedding today, it's always a good idea. whenever people call me should i rent a tent for the wedding? absolutely. when in doubt, always have a backup plan ready to go. that's what we're facingll as summer levels starting to come back into the picture. we all know what that means around here. chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms bubbling up. not looking for a big threat for severe weather today. that's the upside. the old saying goes when you hear thunder roar, that's your sign to go indoors because you don't want to be outside during an electrical storm. a hazy start out there this morning. temperatures in the middle 60s
6:50 am
around town. 67 now at reagan national. dew points are creeping up just a bit. as a result we aren't near as cool as this morning. temperatures running 5 to 15 degrees warmer out the door now than when we went out the door yesterday this morning. mostly if the 60s. 65 now in annapolis. 61 in gaithersburg. 61 now in inwood west virginia. what to expect mild mornings and warm bordering on humid afternoons the next couple of days. and higher rain chances than we've seen in quite a while. may is off to a warm and dry start. the afternoon and evening rain chances are actually good news from a lawn and garden perspective. plan on temperatures this afternoon climbing into the mid-80s. but storms we'll need to watch out for later on this afternoon. here's the way future weather handles it. few sprinkles out there this morning. on the whole, it's a dry start
6:51 am
to the weekend. we'll stay dry this afternoon. that's when showers and embedded thunderstorms are going to start to bubble up. that's going to continue on into the early evening hours tonight. but 8:30 9:00 tonight, rain chances focusing on parts of southern maryland. a slight chance to dry out overnight tonight. thunderstorms are -- it's a good chance for thunderstorms today. but not a big threat for severe weather. almost no chance of any high end severe weather at all. gusty wind and brief periods of heavy rain. that's including the preakness. temperatures outside this morning with the 60s and best rain chances up across parts of pennsylvania new york and new jersey. those are going offshore. but on the backside of it a very warm and humid flow coming out of the carolinas and georgia now nap is going to be a very mild pattern for us. and rain chances around here everyone has a chance for getting rain today. highest rain chances will be in northern maryland out towards the shenandoah valley. so just sort of know you'll need the rain chance umbrella for later on this afternoon.
6:52 am
temperatures all the way through the weekend will be in the mid-80s. upper 80s perhaps our second 90-degree day of the year shows up on monday. better weather, lower humidity. back on wednesday. >> thanks chuck. the wizards and their playoff run we need snacks in here. do you have any? pretzels, granola bars energy bars, trail mix... nuts? cashews, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, almonds... cost a lot? peanuts.
