we are going to keep seeing this as we go through the morning commute. again like i mentioned visibility very low in these areas. we are talking about potentially a quarter mile or less, even coatesville has been seeing zero mile visibility. so this is going to be the case as we go through the next few hours and even as we go through the later part of the morning commute and then we'll see the fog lifting. for now that dense fog is going to be sticking around for most of the morning hours and then we'll see improvements later on today and then followed by rain later on this evening. so coming up we'll look at the timing of that rain and how chilly your new year's day is going to be. right now let's get a check on the roadways with jessica boyington. >> and sheena, we're watching 95, this is around cottman avenue. so everything is moving along nicely as you can see even through the work zone, 13 minutes but we're watching some ramp closures 95 northbound around girard avenue and 95 southbound around aramingo
avenue. something you should be used to by now. not setting anybody back so far. a set of traffic lights out at the bottom of the ramp of the schuylkill expressway westbound, headed toward city avenue so use caution there. right now no backup behind that intersection or police activity. in lower salford an accident scene taking out a lane. i'll come back in the next 10 minutes or so and check in with those cameras. >> 5:31. chip kelly is leaving philadelphia before finishing his third full season. the eagles fired kelly and this morning it's the talk of the town. matt delucia is live outside the melrose diner in south philadelphia with what fans are saying about the move. matt, tell us more. >> reporter: well, tracy, some fans of course venting frustrations out here. we're inside the melrose diner talking with some fans. this is still the dust settling if you will. a lot of people surprised that it happened this soon especially with one game left but right now
6-9 for the birds, not a good season at all for chip kelly's third season, didn't even get to finish. let's talk with some of the fans here. we've got bill enjoying his breakfast. what are your thoughts about chip kelly's firing? >> well, i just hope they don't get another coach that's a chip off the old block because chip's a bad connotation right now. i don't like agreeing with some of the personnel changes that he did, i think he killed the team, we had some good play makers there that he let go, jackson and mccoy and stuff like that, and he let them go. i hope there's adjustments with the quarterbacks also. i wasn't real enthused, you know, with especially the backup quarterback sanchez did nothing. >> where do you think the blame lies? you think it lies entirely with chip kelly? >> well, with chip and the effects of the personnel changes he made, i think that's the
blame. but i'm glad jeffrey lurie didn't let it linger and you know, saw the need for a change in direction there. >> bill, thank you very much. i'll let you get back to your breakfast. there's a lot of opinions, we talked with people last night. some of them very enthusiastic and just looking forward to what lies ahead, hopefully more wins. live in south philadelphia, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. thanks, matt. tv, that's not the only broadcast outlet you'll find reaction to kelly's firing. fans flooded local sports talk radio last night. many said now is the right time for a change. >> shock in the way it happened but it was kind of an option that was on the table for the eagles after they were dressed so dramatically. >> i think it was a relief and i don't think it was a shock and people, are they dancing in the streets, i think most of them, if you watch the way the eagles played football this year and the product that they put on the
field. >> count on nbc 10 and our mobile app for complete coverage of chip kelly's firing. you'll have more reaction from eagles players and from fans. we have new information on the plan to build a memorial to the victims of the market street building collapse. philadelphia officials hope to complete it by next year's third anniversary of the tragedy. the city announced yesterday it signed agreement to release $700,000 for construction of the memorial park at 22nd and market, it was on june 5, 2013, that a building under demolition collapsed on the salvation army thrift store killing six and injuring 14 others. in october a philadelphia jury found demolition contractor griffin campbell guilty of involuntary manslaughter. the operator of the equipment at the site took a plea deal in july. >> 5:34. coming up a story of survival for two dogs in texas. >> my gosh.

cloudy conditions across the area, the clouds are going to stay locked in as we go through the day but no rain around. here is a look at future weather, cloudy skies through the afternoon, by lunch time we should be staying dry. evening commute should be dry, 5, 6:00, maybe a few light showers. but it's not going to be until 8, 9:00 when we see this area of rain moving in. so rain later on tonight. most of today will stay dry. aside from the fog. and then we go into thursday. tomorrow for new year's eve. we're looking at nice conditions, sunny skies and looks clear all the way into new year's day. perfect for any fireworks going on outside. for today, though, early fog with late rain around. temperature 54 to 57 degrees. and as we go into your new year's eve, looks pretty nice, by 8:00 p.m. tomorrow, 46 degrees, 42 by 10:00 p.m., and by midnight, 38 degrees going into 2016. so nice dry conditions but you might want to grab that jacket before you head out. as far as tomorrow is concerned.

two lanes closed there and that will be for the next hour or so until about 7:00 a.m. they are doing bleacher setup. watch for construction out into south jersey route 55 north and southbound so both directions between vineland and millville. the left lanes will be closed until 3:30. lauren. >> thanks, jessica. you'll have to pay more to drive on the pennsylvania turnpike in just a few days. tolls are increasing by 6% in 2016. the higher rates go into effect on sunday for both cash and easy pass customers. the hike is largely to repay loans that help to pay for road work projects. similar increases are expected every year until the year 2044. we checked to see what the difference in price will be now, and here's an example. if you travel from valley forge to bensalem and pay cash it cost you $4.75 right now. beginning on sunday it will cost you $5.05. that's 30 cents more. so check how much more you'll pay on other trips on the

fears, there are concerns that isis supporters could attack the largest new year's celebration. the commissioner says police have spent months preparing. >> we are aware that the threat picture has changed because of isis. it's changed significantly from what it was a year ago or two years ago. and in response to that and in fact, ahead of that in some respects, that's why we have a large -- enlarged our capabilities. >> hundreds of thousands are expected to pack times square, millions will watch from home. >> this year's nypd graduating class made history. it was a true family affair. for the first time three brothers were all sworn in on the same day. steven, john and alex are all following in the foot steps of their father, a 30 year veteran of the force. dad couldn't be prouder. >> we are blessed and this is proof positive that this could all happen and we hope that we
