now from woodhaven road is being stopped. at least 295 southbound because there is an overturned tractor-trailer. police activity there on this 0 scene. watch for slippery ramps, that's going to be our problem of the morning. we'll have alternates for you to come there. we're going to check in with that accident on 26th street southbound that was earlier closed between the schuylkill and you can see the schuylkill expressway moving by that nicely as well. that is clear. route 422 is okay so far for the morning. we have eastbound from 29 to the schuylkill. no problems. we'll have updates on theed two haven scene when i come back. 16 minutes after 5:00. the rain has arrived. it's moved in overnight, late last night we saw some raindrops and still falling in philadelphia. lots of low clouds, really dreary day ahead. but the good news is the temperatures are warmer.
11 degrees warmer right now than yesterday which has 48 degrees in spite of the rain. the rain, that's rain in the pocono mountains where the temperatures are above freezing. blue mountain getting a light rain this morning. we're all getting an easterly breeze, part of what is helping to keep our temperatures up. 7-mile-an-hour wind in philadelphia, a little stronger in dover and mount pocono but i don't expect it to feel much stronger. usually a strong gusty wind will make light rain feel heavier. it's light rain that is starting things off. you see a break in the rainfall, before the next round moves in. so we could see periods of rain come to an end briefly during the afternoon. in fact, 3:00 in the afternoon you can see spots where we'll be drying out. the showers will completely leave us and then wednesday morning. tomorrow morning, the rain is back, in fact, tomorrow afternoon that's where we could see steadier rain and possibly heavier downpours in portions of delaware and south jersey.
so you'll get good use out of your rain gear. a rainy day, 50s this afternoon, and the rain continues tonight and tomorrow. the temperatures will warm up a bit, 56 today, 60 degrees tomorrow, that's after a morning temperature of 49 degrees. then the rain, gone by thursday. but gusty winds bring our temperatures down, a chilly breeze, 51 degrees the high temperature on thursday. less wind on friday which means a colder start in the morning, 35 to start with and 52 degrees friday afternoon. you'll see similar conditions if not a little bit of a warm-up for sunday afternoon. bright sunshine continues through monday. >> thank you, bill. hitting polluters in the wallet. it's one of the ideas world leaders are promoting at the global climate change summit in paris. president obama and leaders are trying to come up with a binding agreement on reducing carbon emissions. the president met with the leaders of china and india. smog is choking the capitals of those nations.
president obama and experts warn that type of pollution is warming the planet, leading to rising sea levels, melting glaciers and extreme weather. >> merge countries, abandon cities, fields that no longer grow. political disruption, trigger new conflict. >> this problem doesn't go away and we can't negotiate with the atmosphere. it will keep happening so we have to find other approaches if this doesn't happen here. >> most world leaders will be leaving paris today but thousands will stay for two more weeks to work out details if a deal is reached. >> this morning we are putting a nice bow on cyber monday, next we'll break down the numbers compared to last year and it will explain why some online shoppers may have been shut out from the item they were looking for yesterday. plus, new york city is shaking it up when it comes to restaurant menus and how much salt is included in your meal. we'll tell you about the health push that starts today in the big apple.
