>> we'll cross that brick when we get to it. right now we're going to get to it. route 38. no problems really in either direction. you see not a lot of cars on the road at that point and not a lot of cards in the trenton area at route 29 at this point but we do have an accident scene with a downed pole. so police officers are on the scene and directing traffic around it. route 29 northbound right around sullivan way might see some delays there. here's 95 right around girard avenue. do have an ongoing construction project here. you can see the construction vehicles up ahead. we're not seeing any traffic in either direction. you'll have no problem getting into center city but watch out for the construction projects. girard avenue on-ramp to 95 northbound is still closed. might see some around the center. watch for extra traffic around the stadium area at that time. more updates when i come back in the next ten minutes.
55 degrees. it's 20 minutes after 5:00 and it is not cold this morning. clouds are with us overnight and nice southerly winds are blowing for parts of the area. just enough to keep us in the middle 50s. the sun's not up. it's already starting to climb 56 degrees. it went up a degree in the last hour. but look at the 24-hour change. it's up 24 degrees compared to yesterday at this time. a dry view from chestnut hill. the rain will be falling on the streets later this morning and into this afternoon. look at the warmer temperatures. 30 degrees warmer right now in mt. holly. 28 degrees in the pocono mountains. no sign of cold this morning and no sign of the rain just yet in our area, but look to the west. you can see the rain light in central and western pennsylvania. but there are heavier downpours to the south and there's a huge
system that extends from florida into canada. now, canada's seeing some snow. that cold air will be completely out of the picture for us today. but the weekend is a different story. and look at this. see these showers? you've got rain and snow moving through eastern north dakota and minnesota. that's the system that could bring us some snow on saturday. for today it's just going to be rain. look at these downpours. this is is 1:00 this afternoon. it will be mild. for the evening commute, most of the rain will come to an end, but there will still be some spotty showers. at 6:00 this evening we'll watch for showers. in wilmington, the blue rocks opening tonight against the potomac nationals. they might see a shower, a bit of a delay. i think they'll get the game in. a chance of thunderstorms. not a huge threat but the possibility. they start coming down tomorrow.
i think it ee going 's going to. breezy and chillier on friday. here comes the cold and chance of some snow and rain showers. best chance of seeing some grassy accumulation will be to the north. 44 degrees will be changing over to rain during the day on saturday and the temperature stays above freezing during the day. not much warmer on sunday with sunshine. a chilly one. the warmup arrives with a chance of showers late monday and tuesday. by wednesday we'll be clearing out and still staying mild. >> all right. thank you, bill. next we'll head to cnbc headquarters for a check on business news including impact terrorism has on tourism. we'll tell you why the experts say traveler are not letting the threats keep them from heading overseas. plus, cheers. today's national beer day. so who would you grab a beer with if you had the chance. we'll tell you who's the most popular pick among americans.
