let's begin with meteorologist bill henley. here he is and his first alert forecast. bill, it's warmer than it was yesterday morning. >> and the people have spoken. they want another day like yesterday. we're going to make that happen. temperatures are in the 40s for most spots. 51 but falling in philadelphia. chilly in pottstown. millville 41. we'll see some 30s. toms river at 39 and south philadelphia 42 degrees to start with. so the temperature is falling, we'll be at 51 at 6:00. by 9:00, 60, then in the 70s by lunch time and climbing. nothing but sunshine. some areas will get warmer. we'll go through the forecast when i'm back. jessica boyington is watching your post-election traffic. >> and bill, the biggest problem we have so far is ongoing construction on the vine street expressway where you can see not a car in sight. that's because it's closed between the schuylkill expressway and broad street on
the east and westbound sides. so watch out for that. that should be out there until about 5:00 this morning. also construction on 95. southbound around street road, that exit will be closed until about 5:00. mass transit not a problem this were mooing. no problems or delays for septa, patco, dart and new jersey transit. >> someone did have a delay. a woman in montgomery county is probably still shaking after watching a train obliterate the car she had just gotten out of. this was the scene near fourth and depot streets in bridgeport. the woman was trying to cross the train tracks when her car stalled. she got out of the car, was on the phone with aaa when a freight train came along and, well, you see the results here. no one was hurt thankfully. the car was towed away and the train kept moving.
>> i have been asked time and time again what i am going to do to move philadelphia forward. tonight surrounded by you i'm reminded it's not what i am going to do it's what we are going to do together. >> he tweeted that too along with several parts of his acceptance speech there. philadelphia mayor-elect jim kenney had a message of cooperation and collaboration last night. the former city councilman won in a landslide against challenger melissa murray bailey. the democratic mayoral-elect will turn his focus toward the future of philadelphia. kenney will tell us what's next in his official transition from candidate to mayor. nbc 10's matt delucia is live outside city hall where there is an office soon occupied by mayor kenny. he will have a lot on his plate. >> the work begins today, the press conference later on this morning to announce that transition process. it was quite a victory for jim kenney, won with 85% of the vote
yesterday. last night just down the road here on market street he thanked his parents and children for their support during the campaign. here is a look at a portion of that victory party last night at the national museum of american jewish history. jim kenny won with the largest margin since the early 1950s, up against republican melissa murray bailey and the democrats now retained control of the mayor's office since 1952. the new mayor-elect and former member of city council talked about education, making streets safe and breaking the cycle of poverty. we heard that sound bite from him, one of the highlights of his victory speech. take a listen again. >> throughout this campaign i have been asked time and time again what i am going to do to move philadelphia forward. tonight surrounded by you i'm reminded it's not what i am going to do, it is what we are going to do together. >> reporter: so what is next?

the suburbs where montgomery county will have its first democratic district attorney kevin steele, the assistant d.a. beat former d.a. bruce castor, 55% to 45%. nbc 10 was at steele headquarters when the results came in. steele and caster sparred mostly about bill cosby and whether he should have been prosecuted for an alleged sex crime. that produced memorable ads and a lawsuit. in the end steele came out the
winner. >> you have given me this opportunity to make a difference here in montgomery county and i will do my best every day. >> castor posted his concession on facebook saying quote i thank you all for entrusting me with the greatest responsibility a person can be entrusted with, trying to make lives better in an honest, ethical and moral way guided by the principles taught me by my parents, church and
my wife. >> and in a historic shift democrats will now control the pennsylvania supreme court. voters chose kevin dougherty and david wecht and christine donohue over three republican candidates. democratic justices will now hold a 5-2 majority over the state's highest court. and we'll have more election results throughout the morning show this morning. they are available any time through the "nbc 10 news" app. >> 4:06, on to this now. a document deadline for attorney general kathleen kane expires in about six hours.

here, another arrest took place at valley forge middle school and another at conistoga high school. police say students as young as 11 years old were sharing erotic and explicit pictures of classmates on line. in most cases we're told the students were taking inappropriate self es and sharing or selling those pictures. in one instance a student downloaded an rerottic video and tried to pass it off as a classmate. coming up a local attorney weighs in on the consequences associated with these charges. kids may not think there is much harm in posting just the picture or a selfie but this attorney says that couldn't be farther from the truth. reporting live in berwin, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. >> today we'll hear from the patients of that 11-month-old boy repeatedly given overdoses of chemotherapy by a local

will start moving in overnight tonight. right now moving out the door, 40 degrees in mount pocono, 48 in northeast philadelphia and atlantic city in the 40s at 44, the temperatures will come down a little bit more. very little wind and clear skies and very dry air. that's going to allow the temperatures to come down in some areas into the 30s this morning. but just like yesterday, skies are clear, we'll see brilliant sunshine. right now calm from the pocono mountains through wildwood, a light breeze in wilmington and dover at 6 miles per hour. satellite shows we're in the clear for today. so stand by for a pretty fast warm-up just like yesterday from the 40s into the upper 60s in mount pocono, 70s for allentown and quakertown. plenty of sunshine for mount holly. in the 70s at the shore, warmer than yesterday for cape may. 75 in vineland and look at dover at 71 degrees. brilliant sunshine for philadelphia, back up to 76 like

austin. it was shown yesterday during the trial of the man charged. prosecutors say owens drove his car into a crowd, killing four people, injuring dozens. if convicted owens faces life in prison with no parole. the new york city bus driver shown on video running over an elderly woman and then leaving the scene is now behind bars. surveillance video shows the moments before the bus hit and dragged the woman who was crossing a street. you see her there. the driver paused for about three seconds, before taking off. leaving the woman there lying in the middle of the street. and she died. witnesses described a grisly scene and what appeared to be a confused bus driver. >> he stopped and then started going. i don't know, he was nervous or -- i have no idea. >> officials say surveillance video of that crash will be a factor in their investigation.

other areas are getting close to those numbers including in montgomery county, look at bluebell at 41. currently 51 in eagleville but collinsville is 40 and lower 40s for pottstown and upper providence at 42 degrees. so it's chilly to start with but like yesterday, a quick warm-up. satellite showing clouds are way to our south and there's not much to those. the spotty showers are in the carolinas this morning. the clouds will be heading our way for tomorrow. enjoy the sunshine. 3:00 this afternoon not a single cloud around. but late this evening you can see clouds developing, coastal clouds to begin with. and then tomorrow morning a chance we'll be starting with showers, mainly in pennsylvania to start with. in fact, that's where the main threat will be as we head into the afternoon tomorrow. not a lot of rainfall but a chance. wipers and umbrellas doing their job at some point tomorrow. for today you need sunglasses. sunny skies, a mild one, 74

county town. >> if you don't get out of here with that camera i will make your day -- >> ahead in our next half hour, trouble at the polls. we'll see why police had to be called to colwyn again and why the aftermath of the election is far from over. next, a wild scene in one delaware county town. one delaware town i should say. people victimized by vultures and they can't seem to gain the upper hand against the birds.
