looking at 30 degrees in montclair, all these numbers are even colder because we've got a northeast wind out there that is making it rather chilly. you'll see winds out there 5, 10, 13, 15 miles an hour in spots. we're going to be looking at what will be a wind that makes it feel chilly much of the day. here is how it feels. 33 in the bronx, 27 around laguardia, 28 jfk a chilly day today and rainy weather coming for tomorrow and wednesday. we'll talk about that next in your accuweather forecast. i don't know if heather will be the new coach of the rutgers, but debbie is in the traffic center filling in for heather. >> we'll find out tomorrow i'm sure. good morning bill, everybody. starting off on the subway, subways running on or close to schedule overnight maintenance on the a, c, and e completely cleared watch for the broken water main. monroe street closed between first and second in hoboken and dray clark will have more for us shortly. let's see what's happening on the new jersey turnpike. new jersey turnpike north at 8 a, truck fire on the outer

3:30, this street the 100 block of monroe between first and second avenues was covered in water. now that they have turned the water off you can see the flooding has gone down substantially but take a look at how it did look earlier this morning. that flooding started some time after midnight, water crews were here right away. now we've not been told how extensive the water main break is but when you look at the video you can see there was still much water on the street. that's a clear indication that that water main break is probably pretty significant but again right now crews now in the process of digging up the pavement there to try and get down to that water main break. we know that one basement here on monroe street did experience some pretty serious flooding and one man says he doesn't have water right now. >> it's frustrating not to have water. >> that's not it though. it hasn't happened in awhile but to have a couple in a row is kind of frustrating. >> and what do you have right now? you have no water or low water
little bit of water pressure. >> now let's go back in time. a week ago, it was a severely ruptured water main that lead to major flooding on several streets here in south hoboken. homes and businesses lost water for several days here across the city. yesterday they announced they have fixed the problem and water has been fully restored to the entire city and now this morning those crews are back again hard at work trying to repair yet another water main. particular water main break does not compare to the one we saw last week. there were several streets closed. there was water pretty much everywhere all across south hoboken and again we're still trying to figure out just how extensive one the water main break is and two, just how many people are affected because it's so early in the morning and still two people are out and in fact most people were probably sleeping and about to wake up only to find out they
either have no water at all or very low water pressure but i can tell you these crews are working as fast as they can to try and get this problem repaired once again. live this morning in hoboken, dray clark channel 7 eye witness news. thank you, dray. a big shake up at rutgers university. both the head football coach and athletic director were fired. rutgers officials calling it a fresh start this morning. eye witness news is live in new brunswick. good morning to you. >> reporter: michelle, good morning to you. this was all amid a failing football season but some say the writing was on the wall for the head coach and that athletic director, as you know on sunday, rutgers fired football coach kyle flood and athletic director julie hermann. on sunday they are stepping the athletic department of its prominent employees. flood was suspended for three games and fined $50,000 earlier in the season for reportedly contacting a professor about a player's grade. that is not allowed. that player and five others
were eventually kicked off the team. a new athletic director was hired two days before herman's departure was even announced. patrick hobs, the former dean at seaton hall law school and former athletic director there is now in place here. >> the replacement of the football coach raises special challenges for us, so that made it appropriate i think for us to start fresh, wipe the slate clean and take this opportunity to move rutgers forward and to take it to where we know it can go. >> we have a statement from kyle flood now. he released a statement thanking rutgers for the opportunities for the last 11 seasons and he says he has no doubt the best is yet to come. live in new brunswick, new jersey, channel 7 eye witness news. >> kala, thank you. 5:36. happening today, jury selection beginning in the first trial connected to the police involved death of freddie gray. officer william porter faces manslaughter and other charges
