nature. i mean it, cents widespread for sure. there are supports where it is just a mist, or you really just have clouds. the problem is, see what's off to the southwest there? another little pocket. this is our warmfront that's lifting in, guys. so it really is essentially all day event, even there will be few breaks along the way, it is just cloudy and damp and showery, and with a pocket of steadier rain on the way, for later on today. i would say about midday, you can expect that to really dampen, you know, any kind of lunch plans you might v might be good idea to order in today. our rain and the, thus far, are as such. not too bad. we have only seen few tents after inch so far in reading, coatesville, enough to make it a big fat nuisance, but not enough to lead to any flooding. that's kind of how the storely shake out for us here as we move forward in this forecast. we take a look at the area visibility. they're not perfect in philly, but they're better than they are in the poconos, at least the combination of some of the visibility troubles that we may ends up having as the day goes on. soap, with this milder and moisture rich air mass in place, we will see some patchy
fog develop by tonight. for now though it is primarily about the damp roads. currently 50 already at the airport. temperatures slowly climbing with this milder air mass in place. and quick check on your day planner. mid 50's at best, but still technically above average for the highs, that means, it is strictly rain showers out of this entire storm system, meisha. but definitely again, big fat headache. >> yep, it certainly is, especially for the morning commuters, katie. you know what? i can't complain about the 50's, i just left somewhere where it was snowstorms and 30, let me tell you, it was colds and not good. nice break, nice welcome. fifty's, can't complain. schuylkill, moving in the eastbound direction at 202, in the king of prussia area, looking good. it is just roadways as you can see are very wet as we see the drivers drive past the cameras, you can kind of see all of that splash pop up behind them on to the windshield of the cars behind, so, we have been dealing with some accidents this morning, this is one of the areas,
actually, debris in the roadway in conshohocken, ridge pike eastbound off ramp, southbound kind of the left side blocked, but vehicles are still able to kind of maneuver around. now, one of the areas that we do have an accident, is this jackknife tractor-trailer, woodhaven road eastbound ramp to 95 southbound, is closed. as you can see, just string of vehicles, everywhere we look now, as we move into the 6:00 hour. it is heating up. because we have wet roadways, give yourself couple of extra minutes this morning. over to you. >> thank you, if your daily commute includes driving across the delaware river, you can get a discount on your drive starting today. delaware river port authority is giving drivers 18-dollar credit if you drive across any of its four bridges, at least 18 times a month. the only good catch, if you have e-zpass from new jersey, do you have sign up for the discount, weaver that information on cbsphilly.com. well, two days after announcing his retirement, kobe brian is playing basketball in philadelphia for the last time. the sixers are hosting the lakers tonight.

the farewell tour get underway today. justin, good morning. >> good morning, before saying good-bye, we saw fans giving kobe brian warm welcome home last night. even sat with him and kept him company as he tore down a cheese steak and chips. and that warm welcome will likely extends into tonight, sixers, lakers, match up here at the wells fargo center. >> from the second he stepped off the plane, all eyes, and cell phones, seem to follow kobe bryant. the nba superstar guard who just announced he's retiring. >> feeling good, man, feels good to be back. >> tonight kobe's lake letters take on the sixers, but first for kobe, a stop at larry's steaks in wynnefield, where crowd of st. joe's student and fans clam earthed to be close to the philly born celebrity. >> only thing i can sign my napkin. you know what? sign that for me, you snow. >> long before kobe went pro, sean bush was a fan, tracking kobe's career from high school to the la lakers.
>> i watched him play at lower merion and everything, and growing up. a great basketball player. >> we won that title in 1996. ever since then we never really lowered the bar. we just maintained very high expectations. >> lower merion high's greg downer, almost 20 years later, the basketball coach says kobe's legend looms large at his alma matter. downer new it would. >> we met him when he was in eighth grade. he was 13 years old. 6-foot two, about 140 pounds, and he scrimmaged against my current varsity, i turned to a couple of mia cyst at any time coaches and i said this kid is a pro. >> side lined by injury as of late, kobe will always be known for his many achievements. >> he's had unbelievable run, the five rings, two gold medals, the third leading scorer in the history of the game. >> and so who knows just how much kobe you will see in action tonight, but you will see him nonetheless and that's
now being called history, now, your cheap seats tonight start at 08 bucks, court side the high hundreds, and to be on the floor, way up close, that's $2,500 a seat for that amount of money could you fly to l a on january 1st and see kobe and the lakers take on the sixers here at the staples center, nicole, i bet you there are fans out there who just might be doing that. over to you. >> i love that you crunch the numbers and had that information handy. i also love that kobe's first stop was at the cheese steak place. that's fantastic. justin, thanks, we appreciate it. switching gears right now, happening today, pennsylvania attorney general kathleen kane heads to philadelphia to unveil a team of special prosecutors. they're going to investigate pornographic emails among prosecutors, judges, and others on government computers. cane's new conference is this morning at the national constitution center. >> well, jim kenly hold his seconds town hall meeting at philadelphia's mayor-elect. it will be held tonight, at south philadelphia high school. now, the first one was held at central high school last

a rider his smart phone back. it all started with surveillance video, showing a woman pocketing a phone at the cecil b. moore station in north philadelphia. she then tells the owner she didn't have it. septa police chief tom tweeted out the woman's photo and instead of threatening arrest, offered amnesty if the phone was returned. >> within 12 hours of posting my amnesty tweet, a woman who identified herself as the offender's sister went to the 39th police district and presented that phone. >> now, the chief says, he was criticized for his methods and his decision to offer amnesty, but the benefit of getting the phone back to the owner over criminal prosecution and trial proves his decision was the right one. well, two strangers in south jersey go under the knife today to share the gift of life. we told but 49 year old glenn counter hunks banks incredibly selfless story last month. and looking on craigslist for tools, he discovered nina is

or nudging, into our area, as we hit say midday. meantime, this storm really is overtaking pretty much the entire united states map. it is so much better organized than it was this same time yesterday. classic sort of comma shape. very cold air wrapping in the back edge of this. i know meisha can a test to that, because she was out in the northern planes the last couple of days. snow still falling out there. but we don't have to deal with snow just rain. it has been way too warm. it will stay that way even though we've got cold front coming through, still stays above average, basically, for the majority of the forecast. so i want to walk you through future weather here. so as of now, rain still over spreading the area. light in general. light rain. but we see the heavier stuff come in. one pocket of it looks like from middayment then bit more scattered in nature by this evening. tomorrow, similar scenario, light rain. another heavier batch of it. probably more of that heavy rain even as we head toward evening. that is your cold front. then it is out of here. so by thursday morning, this same time, we are going to finally be seeing the light of day since we're not going to
see too much sun the next few days. okay, we gave you c minus. not terrible. clouds, showers around, any time today. it is damp. it is dreary. the kids need the goloshes or the raincoat for sure headed out to the school bus. tomorrow look at that temperature, guys, we flirt with 60 degrees on december 2nd. but trade off obviously. it is heavy rain tomorrow. then we cool it back down, see some sunshine. >> better than cold and rainy. >> i'm with you. it could be so much worse. >> it could be. >> unless you are a snow lover, i know you are not dig wag we have to tell you right now, but your time will come eventually. >> oh, it is coming, it is a coming. >> good morning, everyone, the roadways surprisingly are actually looking pretty good. i will say now that we're in the 6:00 hour, things starting to heat up, all of the major interstates, highways, we've had couple of spin out crashes, two accidents to report, but right now, things are actually looking a-okay dairy say. wet roadways out there, yes, it you are just waking up with thus morning as katie
explained, it is wet outside. it will be wet today. it is going to be wet tomorrow. and you can see, this is a look at 95 southbound at cottman looking very wet on the roadways, in a little slow. i can let you know on interstate 95 this is fairly typical for what we see pushing through our 6:00 hour now reaching, trying to push toward our rush hour. so looking okay on interstate 95. you're just slowing down just little bit. look at this. droplet all over the camera. this is the schuylkill eastbound at city avenuement now if you look just behind this tree right here, you can see, westbound schuylkill, looking very busy, coming off the roosevelt boulevard, moving in the eastbound direction, you're just getting a little hook upright as you try to make your way into center city. but overall just give yourself couple of extra minutes, pack your patience for sure, nicole, over to you. >> coming up: meet the local teenage here is gracing the cover of sports illustrated kids, and has his sites set on the olympics. also, quite a site on florida golf course. when two giant alligators started fighting, yes, not

about their safety during visits. >> we did ramp you our secure tip, most in a to a lay anxiety for the patience, not because we necessarily felt the need. >> brown and letter team meet to go determine just how long that extra security will last. well, florida is definitely phone for its alligators, right, but even residents, say, they've never seen anything like this before. golfers teeing off at gore course in angle wood say they saw two gators, at least 10 feet long, fighting, right on the course. going at t okay? grabbed the camera, captured these photos, they say the fighting lasted almost ten minutes, before the reptiles had enough. >> the big one won the fight. the little one limping walking away. >> sad. the larger gator apparently
well known in southwest florida golfers call him golieth. so, oh, boy. ya. not getting in the middle that far fight. just let him duke it out. coming up next, we all know too much salt in our diet isn't healthy, right? but limiting our intake requires a lot more than just taking the saltshaker off the table. most of the time we don't even realize how much salt we're eating, and that's why new york is adding this sign to certain menu items. we'll explain coming up next. and katie, tracking all of that rain out there, right? >> indeed i am. it is two day event, nicole. two fronts to track. two days worth of rain as a result. but, there is a light at the end that far tunnel in the forecast, we'll tell you

>> dealing with wet roads for your commute. storm scan3 showing the wet weather there will be with us for the next couple of days. i guess the good news, it is not terribly cold out there. >> right. you know, actually not going to see any kind of push of arctic air any time soon anyway. we see the ups and downs of the thermometer, but going to above average place, then sort of just get brought back down to reality in time. so it is not that bad. but man is it a headache. you know? you get out the door, last thing you want to deal with. >> dear. >> i dreary, not going to see much sunshine today, tomorrow, and definitely the rain will be with us. so we give you sense of exactly how it all shakes out, going full screen on storm storm scan, still have the rain falling at least across
southern new jersey as well as now into east central pennsylvania, but, you see off to the southwest there, some steadier rain, heavier pocket, set to nudge our way with time here. let me just give you one quick snapshot view at the local level too. here is basically where you are finding the rain currently falling at its steadiest. southeast burlington county, portions of ocean county, atlantic county engulfed in the rain. but light, so, it isn't a flooding situation, say, it is more of gist a big fat nuisance, in time for your morning commute. obviously, ooh degrees out at the airport right now, ooh degrees already, at 6:30, on december 1st. i mean, not bad, 37 even in mount pocono, terrible, in the 20's this time yesterday. so we are looking ahead, to a slightly above average day, in the temperature department. certainly dreary day, don't get me wrong, you do still need the coat and i highly suggest the rain gear, and meisha, not going to be able to put that rain gear away, just yet, we have to keep it in the ready in hand here right through tomorrow. since this is a prolonged
event. >> all right, katie. small price to pay for 50 degrees weather in december! just saying. good morning, everyone, if you are just waking up with us, yes, we have wet roadways out there, but things are actually looking pretty good. what you are looking at live look outside interstate 95 moving in the southbound direction, at girard, looking busy, very busy indeed, we push toward our rush hour 7:00 a.m. time frame. looking good though, for all intents and purposes, i can tell you what we typically see around 6:30, is exactly this. on interstate 95, now, when we add on top that far that we do have wet roadways, i have to say, i got to give a round every applause to the drivers so far. things are actually really nice. ben franklin bridge, again, looking busy, and this sex actually what we can expect. so coming from jersey headed in the wean direction, into center city, it is looking a little bit busy. dropping little less than posted speeds right now, but all things considering, looking okay, 42 freeway northbound, again, in jersey, for those of you moving northbound, at creek road pushing all the way toward
295, looking exactly like. >> this you are traveling less than posted speeds in this area, as well. we do have serious accident in parks berg, highway ten southbound, passades burying i rode, know that that's serious accidents there. then also this downed tree, route 206, closed, both directions, past willow grove road. so we do have some incidents out there. what i would say right now is 6:30 a.m., just leaving your home, give yourself couple of extra minutes, nicole, over to you. >> thank you, hack attack targeting children and this morning, technology maker v tech reports some 5 million customers may have had their information compromised. "eyewitness news" reporter jan carabeo joins the -- joins me with more on this. not just credit cards information or financial information it is involving children. >> fortunately for parents in time around it is not having to do with credit card information or social security numbers, anything like, that but it is some personal information. more scary for parents, it is information about their children, as well, that's the scariest part. this time, hackers gained access not only to children's
names, their birthdate, their gender but their pictures is as well. >> this morning, cyber security ex percent weighing in and some say v tech should have done more to prevent this from happening. >> jada mcdonaldson has to pause about an answer, but the mother doesn't react -- don't wait to react. >> that's scar. >> i hundred with targets kids. >> already concerned about their information in the first place. >> now, parents who use v tech's learning lodge app store have another concern. the electronic toy makers app store was hack last week. exposing the personal information of about 5 million customers, including hundreds of thousands of children. security expert, troy hunt, wants parents to be aware. >> one thing to understand, is that probably everything that they have given to v tech has been compromised. >> including name, age, even your child's picture.
>> certainly accountability or on their behalf. it is real that i simple. that the question might become did they take sufficient measures to suffer from the loss? >> hunt says the answer to that question is simple? no. no. and this is the problem. >> so how do you go protecting yourself and your children in the future shnewer ask about a website or app security before you register your personal information. you know what companies that use encrypted connections are the best, and maybe think twice about allowing your kids to play went net connected toys. that's the key there. if it is connected to the internet, you can get into the scary situation with haaking. >> just assume it is not completely safe. >> exactly. >> jan, thanks. switching gears now, louisianna family says the whoever board caught fire after it was plugged in to charge and nearly burned their house down. jessica bought the 300-dollar whoever board for her 12 year old son. she said sparks began flying out of it before it burst into flames. >> both wheels it was like a
fireworks, like you just lit fireworks, i seen sparks flying and before i could yell the house on fire mid i had part of the board just poof. into flames. >> the state fire marshall is now investigating, the maker of the whoever board has not yet responded to those allegations. well, a mid the mayhem of the holiday season, today we celebrate giving tuesday. a day dedicated to giving back. and before you write that check, cbs news business analyst jill schlessinger says there are steps to take to ensure that you maximize your dollars, and ensure that they go to your desired organizations, jim, good morning to you. >> so hearing giving to clarity not only makes you feel good but helps you out at tax time, dual benefit, right? >> yes, absolutely, but t are couple of caveats about using this for taxes. you have to donate to something called a qualified organization. the irs has a list, to help you understood, what that means, and you also have to itemize your tax deductions,
so, you meet those two measures, then you will be able to write off your payment. however, a lot of people do this at the very end of the year. and what they realize is they just say oh, my god, it is december 31, and i'm just going to write december 31 on my check, i'll get the tax deduction. no way. it has got to be postmark by midnight december 31 writing the dayton the check does not do it for the irs. if you are up against a deadline, you may want to use a credit card. donations are deductible as of the date the account is charged. >> good to know, are there certain times when you should just maybe say no to a solicitation, maybe you get something in the mail? i mean, what are the rules around that? >> well, i think the most important thing is you have got to be familiar with the organization. so, a lot of people get little worried because a representative will call them, and they sort of get this high pressure tactic. so, one of the things that i say is if the representative asks you for money, but
doesn't give you any details about the group's identity or the cost, how it is going to use your donation, just say no. if they say sends us cash, say no. if they promise to enter you in a sweep sticks, that's a big red flag. and if they will not provide proof that a contribution is tax deductible, just walk away. look, if you're unsure about the ledge it mass bye an organization, you may want third party confirmation, better bureau business website or charity navigator can really be helpful. now, there is also big rise in charitable scams, i hate to say that, i know we are just talking about web suck eye at this, for more on those scams the way to avoid them go to jill on money. com. >> all right, important information. jill, thanks, we appreciate it. and, dog owners in brooklyn, they have new option. when they shop at businesses, that actually ban pets. instead of tying your dogs to maybe a parking meter or bike rack, use the dog parker. assisted by exclusively designed to keep them safe. use membership card to open the device, when it opens, the
censor turns green, when it locks it turns red. >> do an errand, and be able to put your dog in a little house where it is going to be safe. >> in the same way you can access mailbox, what if there were doing kennels on the street? >> about 15 member dogs are testing the product out. >> he is local swimming sensation in the national spotlight. take a closer look at this guy. remember, his name. okay? reese whitley is gracing the cover of sports illustrated kids, and this is just the beginning for him. we'll introduce you, coming up next. also, the golden arches are getting little fancy. that's right. mcdonald's debuts new upscale menu. we'll have the details on that. next. >> ♪
