my name is phil zietlow, and i've been an engineer on the cheerios team for 51 years. about five years ago, i found out that if my daughter-in-law, joyce, eats anything with gluten in it she feels pretty darn terrible. so my team and i came up with a way to remove the grains that contain gluten, from the naturally gluten free oats that cheerios are made of. so now joyce and i can have cheerios together anytime we want. and if you love someone with celiac, or gluten sensitivity, you can too.
wants. a record low crowd. a live look now at citizens bank park where things are quiet and empty. about the same as it was last night. just a little over 15,000 fans turned out for last night's game against the braves at citizens bank park. they lost 7-2. that is the fewest fans since the park opened in '04. they recorded the 85th also of the season falling to the braves. they play the next nine game at home. >> we're on 95. whoa. look at this. a string of brake lights from southbound to that vine street expressway. 37 miles per hour is your average speed. this is pretty much what we're seeing across the board right now. we'll check in with more of the majors coming up and especially that descent scene out in lower marion coming up at 6:30. let's get a check of today's
forecast with bill henley. >> jessica, if you like yesterday at the shore, good chance that you'll enjoy today as well. probably see a smaller crowd. schools going back into session. the temperatures will be in the 80s at the shore. right now under clear skies. 68 degrees in cape mae. at the airport, a bit cooler at 66 degrees. >> all right am thank you, bill. and in two hours, schools begin for students. there is excitement and uncertainty. katy zachery is live at carver high school. good morning. >> good morning. here at carver high school behind me, school year is beginning with a lot of new and exciting changes. unfortunately at many other schools around the district, teachers hands are tide. i'll explain how that could affect kids in the classroom. >> speaking of kids, switched at birth. months of pain comes to an end for one couple as their tears of horror become tears of joy.

nbc 10 substitute yoez. it's going to be bright sunshine and we're minutes away from sunrise. 11:00, 86 degrees. that's beyond the normal high temperature. it will still be climbing with southwesterly winds at 7 miles an hour, that is the humidity increasing. 92 degrees at 2:00. i expect for some areas to go higher than that. excuse me. we'll go through the forecast neighborhood by neighborhood when i'm back in ten minutes. the heat chokes me up, jessica. jessica boyington has the first alert traffic. >> i'm smoegsal now. thanks, bill. this is something to watch out for. we have an accident scene in dennis township on the garden state parkway. on the northbound side. right around sea aisle boulevard. a lot of extra traffic heading home this morning. if we're out the door on 422, we're seeing an increase a little early so far this morning. you can see in the eastbound side right in here, that's
headed to the schuylkill expressway. now we have a 13-minute drive time. it is almost doubled right now. average speeds are about 39 miles per hour. so as we head forward on to lower marion, we still are watching this descent scene on mill creek road and grays lane with that intersection closed. your best bet to get around it is to take old gulf road and coming up in the next couple minutes, i'll check in with 76 and new jersey and see what's going on. there. >> thanks. happening today, a major change in the way catholics get annulments. it's coming just before that major trip pope frances is making to cuba and the u.s. in a few hours, church leader will explain that the pope is making it easier to get a marriage annulled. the church doesn't recognize divorce. instead, marriages have to be annulled which is a lengthy and costly process which really means that the marriage was never valid according to the church. the situation of divorce and remarried catholics who want to fully participate in the church is a high lie debated topic.
that's the sound of choirs preparing for the pope in cuba. pope frances will celebrate mass on the 19th. it will be the pope's furst trip to cuba. there are all musical performances composed by cuban artists. pope frances will be in philadelphia then. one of the stops he'll speak at independence hall on religious freedom and immigration. >> and that speech will be open to the public and it's free. you need a ticket. nbc 10s matt delucia is live at independence mall. can anyone get tickets? >> you have to remember a little more than a month ago when they tried selling passes for the papal visit, the website crashed. and there were far fewer tickets available this time around for the actual event itself. so this is for the event that is
happening on saturday the 26th. that will be tickets going up for grabs later on today at noon. you need to be close to a computer. these are only available online. this will be for the pope's speech that will focus on i inauguration. 10,000 tickets will be available to the public starting at noon. they are first come, first serve with a limit of four per person. more tickets here, 10,000 for the festival of families and 10,000 for the papal mass are offered starting tomorrow. there is a difference here. today's tickets are for the speech at independence hall. it was after people said they would not be able to get close to the pope without one. the majority of tickets are giving out to churches in our area. the website will be at the world meeting of families website. we have a link to that on our website. you have to keep in mind this link is not active until noon. that will be when these tickets go up for grabs. if you're wondering like i was just a few minute ago what
10,000 tickets would be as far as an impact, you have to figure that they're expecting about a million and a half people to park the parkway for the papal mass. 10,000 tickets amount to less than 1%. so demand is xbeexpected to be fairly high. i'm live at independence hall, nbc 10 news. >> and if you don't get tickets, you can still get your chance to see the pope during two parades on saturday the 26th. he'll travel around city hall and back to the parkway for a festival. a second parade will be held sunday the 27th. route information on that parade has not been released yet. a lot of people are going to try to avoid papal crowds in philly. so cape mae county leaders have a new slogan. you will still be able to seat pope's mass. the cape mae convention center
is showing pope frances' mass on the big screen. before the mass, they'll be showing the movie "sister act." go to the nbc app for the full itinerary and the ticket information. it's all available now on the nbc 10 app. >> today students in cam den head back to school. the superintendent there plans to lead the mayor on a tour of several schools. also south jersey native and nba player jason thompson will give away backpacks and school supplies to some of the students. meantime in, philadelphia, more than 100,000 students will head back to school. but the first day of class begins, there is uncertainty about the school district's budget. and how it will effect students' education. nbc 10s katy zachery is live at carver high school with more. katy? >> tracy, it's normal for kids waking up now heading back to school for the furst time in a few months. they may feel some nervous
energy. but i'm hearing that start of this school year, parents and teachers are feeling some anxiety as well. the deadline to approve the budget is june 30th. the concern is without a concrete funding figure from the state, districts like here in philadelphia won't know if they can afford certain programs, activities, and teacher salaries. we asked governor tom wolf how much longer districts will have to operate without this key funding. he says it's unclear but he's not willing to sacrifice education. it doesn't do as much as i think needs to be done for education. >> back out here live at carver high school. in just about an hour, mayor michael nutter and superintendent william height will be here to meet with students and teachers as they celebrate the beginning of the school year.
those two take part in a bell ringing ceremony at the high school. later in the morning, those two will then go to a middle school for lunch and finish out the day at south philadelphia high school. reporting live in north philadelphia, katy zachery, nbc 10 news. >> labor day was the unofficial kickoff of the fall campaign season for the presidential hopefuls. all eyes were on vice president joe biden who may or may not be running for president. hillary clinton was in iowa where she's been losing ground in the polls and also losing her voice. the real heat on labor day was in new hampshire where bernie sanders is surging. one candidate absent from the spotlight yesterday, republican front-runner donald trump. >> it's 6:37. in washington, lawmakers are getting back to work after their summer break. congress expected to spend the first day back in session debating the iran nuclear deal. most democrats support the
agreement and republicans oppose it. another topic, keep the government open beyond september as the new bijt year gins october 1st. >> 22 minutes before 7:00. sun just starting to come up. we have a hotter and more humid day on tap. going to be a heat wave. expect them again tomorrow. then showers and thunderstorms to bring our temperatures back down. right now, it is cooler in the mountains. 65 degrees. 72 in northeast philadelphia. and nice and sunny for atlantic city at 70 degrees. in the mountains, this is the view. you can see some low clouds. you might see a few spots of fog. we're not getting widespread fog like we saw yesterday morning. we are clear. no clouds in the region. the nearest clouds are way to the north and they'll stay out of the picture today. you'll need your sunglasses. look at the 90s for allentown
and quakertown. at the shore, another beautiful day. middle 80s for rehoboth and atlantic city. inland, look at the temperatures taking off. this afternoon, 94 in philadelphia. 93 in williams town and wilmington. 92 degrees. but cooler weather will be here for the weekend. saturday partly sunny. look at tund. the chance for showers 79 degrees. seven day forecast when i'm back in ten minutes. >> we have a report of a car fire in south jersey right now. jersey check. you can see the red cars right here leading up towards that point. no problems once you pass that scene. and head over into the schuylkill expressway. we'll keep our eyes on that for
