traffic trouble on 76. a tractor-trailer crash has parts of the schuylkill expressway closed right now. septa's strike threat, bus, trolley and subway operators have voted unanimously to walk off the job if they do not reach a deal on their contract. what you need to know. that's all ahead in a live report. going to trial, the penn state whistle-blower case tied to the jerry sandusky scandal heads to the courts today. nbc 10 news starts now. >> good morning, this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm tracy davidson. >> and i'm rosemary connors. plenty going on this morning, including some really warm weather out there. let's get to meteorologist bill henley and the first alert neighborhood forecast. bill? >> it's a warmer start, summer-like this afternoon. the warm air is bringing in moisture.
that has created some fog. that's 95, the view from south philadelphia. we've beenç watching the last couple hours, the fog has really been increase. it's hazleton in the mountains, zero visibility, down to a mile in pottstown. philadelphia international is quarter mile visibility and dense fog in wilmington. if you're heading down 95 you'll see a lot of that fog, likely slow things down a bit first things this morning. the temperatures will rise quickly from the 50s and 60s into the 80s this afternoon. 59 in new jersey. and the lehigh valley, you can see some of the light fog in easton. that's a live view. 62 degrees, the follow will be disappearing at 9:00 and long gone by lnch time. 73 degrees. in philadelphia, the fog disappears as well. temperature will hold steady at 8:00. but then up to 68 degrees by 11:00 this morning. and hold on to your sunglasses, because the temperature hit 80 degrees for philadelphia and the suburbs. delaware, into the 80s. look at the 70s for the lehigh
valley for new jersey and at the shore. i'll walk you through the forecast hour by hour when i come back in just a few minutes. it's been a tough morning on the road. jessica boyington watching things from the first alert traffic center. >> definitely take the schuylkill expressway. that's because our camera showing us right here, the schuylkill eastbound around university avenue still closed this morning as it has been for several hours now. that's because there was a tractor-trailer accident involving a tractor-trailer carrying beer kegs and another vehicle involved there as well. you're looking at getting by there is the westbound side. at least one lane or so getting by the scene there. all eastbound traffic, though, is at a complete standstill. we're seeing big delays past south street and traffic pretty much looks like it's at a standstill. that's a lot of traffic to be pushed off the university off ramp. 34th bridge, wharton street to the schuylkill expressway eastbound ramp, a little further
east. down below you'll pop out down there. other than that, if you're taking the schuylkill expressway, before you get stuck, take the vine street expressway, head eastbound there and head to 95 in that direction or so. that will be a good alternate. we're still in the green at least through the vine street expressway. updates for the rest of the morning. we have team coverage of that tractor-trailer crash that's backing up traffic on the schuylkill in the eastbound lanes. let's get to nbc 10's pamela osborne. she just arrived at the scene not too long ago. pam, what are you seeing? >> rosemary, unfortunately it looks like this will take a little while to clear. let me step out of the way and give you a better look at exactly what's going on right now. you can see the accident scene, you can also see tow trucks there. since we've been here for 40 minutes we're seeing a small truck come and unload some of the beer that's on the back of that tractor-trailer. that's the cargo it was carrying this morning. it's looking like they're trying
to get the back of that trailer unloaded before they're able to tow it off of the eastbound lanes of 76 this morning. so, again, that seems to be taking a little bit of time this morning. you can see traffic going on the westbound lanes right now. as of now, traffic from this direction, eastbound on the schuylkill, not getting on. we have seen some other cars go a little bit ahead of the accident. they're able to get on. again, right now, traffic still shut down. we'll keep an eye on the situation just as soon as we see movement here, we'll let you know. reporting live in grays ferry, pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. 6:04. a possible strike is looming over septa. workers say they will walk off the job at the end of the month if they don't reach a contract agreement. matt delucia live in east falls. what does this mean for commuters? >> well, tracy, it could mean a big problem for commuters if that strike does happen. you might remember two years ago, septa narrowly avoided a
strike and now septa riders are saying not again. some 5,000 union members have threatened to walk off the job. the transport workers union voted unanimously yesterday to walk off the city's subways, trolleys and buses on november 1st if a deal is not reached by then. the big concern, of course, is that workers and kids going to school will be stranded. looking ahead to election day on november 8th, that could be a big problem as well, getting people to the polls. we spoke with riders who say they are concerned and frustrated right now. >> i think they're not thinking of everyone. i think they're only thinking of themselves. when they think about the strike, they put a lot of us in jeopardy of how we choose to get to work. >> two years after the last strike threat, some of the sticking points remain today, including pension, health care and work schedules. the union has claimed that managers are getting special treatment. they tell themselves they
deserve more, we deserve less. we're not going to tolerate that. >> septa responded to the vote with a written statement, quote, while we happen the union does not exercise it's right to strike, we are focusing on reaching a new contract that's in the best interest of our riders, employees and stakeholders. riders here this morning, holding out hope that a strike does not happen. there's no word yet on any contingency plans. if a strike does happen, there's a couple weeks to go for those negotiations. septa regional rail would not be affected by that strike. live in east falls, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. with nbc 10 as the strike deadline gets closer, make sure you have the free nbc 10 app to learn how a strike could impact your commute. we'll keep you updated. today the hoboken train station will be back up and running with full service. this comes less than three weeks after that crash of the new jersey transit train that killed a woman and injured more than 100 people. six more tracks opened this
morning at 4:00. new jersey transit officials say trains entering the station will now reduce their speed from 10 miles an hour to 5. the train that crashed in september was going twice the previous speed limit at the time of the accident. in philadelphia, a man is dead after robbers shot him on f street in lawncrest last night. police say the victim told him he was coming home from shopping when two men held him up. he was shot at pointblank range from taking off. neighbors were up late talking to police after a 19-year-old was found dead on rose hill street, just after midnight. police say he was shot once in the head but six shell casings were found. police are still look for the shooter. 6:07. today in central pennsylvania, a judge will begin hearing the penn state whistle-blower case linked to the jerry sandusky child sex abuse scandal. former assistant football coach mike mcquery is suing the
university for $4 million for wrongful termination. he claims that penn state ruined his coaching career and personal life afterç he reported witnessing sandusky's abuse to school officials. mcquery testified against sandusky who was later convicted of child sex crimes. a little bit of fog out there this [ inaudible ]. let's check in with meteorologist bill henley for the first alert forecast. >> this is a view from center city looking to the south, to the southwest, that fog is really thick at the airport and into delaware. some of the suburbs are seeing some of the fog. you may run into foggy spots first thing this morning. certainly not all day. we'll get sunshine to break through the clouds. the temperatures will be summer-like this afternoon with partly sunny skies and heading into a warm evening. it was really pleasant last evening but tonight it will be in the 70s. by tomorrow morning, we'll be dropping back into the 60s but warmer than this morning. today, we're starting off quite a bit warmer than yesterday.
57 right now in the lehigh valley. delaware has the fog at 58 degrees and the fog at philadelphia international. 60 degrees right now. fox chase is 61 and chestnut hill is 56. the temperatures climb and with southwesterly winds helping to boost the temperatures, we'll have no problem racing to the 70s. we should top out around 80 degrees in philadelphia. overnight, a few clouds and a few showers, too. you see the sprinkles heading towards northern new jersey. the area is dry. expect it will stay dry today. you'll need your sunglasses, too. the fog disappears, partly sunny sky at 9:00. 62 degrees and 75 degrees by 1:00. the normal high is 66. we'll blow past that and by 5:00 this afternoon, 78 degrees. the suburbs, fog will disappear. by 9:00 you'll see sunshine an a few clouds. 61 degrees, up to 75 at 1:00 and bright sunshine at 5:00 this afternoon. for the lehigh valley, there's a little bit of fog in the lehigh valley, too. partly to mostly sunny skies.

delays in and out of center city on the schuylkill anyway. this is our camera around south street, approaching the accident scene, which is involving a tractor-trailer and a spill in the area now as well. the schuylkill expressway around university avenue is where the accident scene is and they're diverting traffic off in that direction. this is why all of the south street traffic is at a complete standstill. all of this traffic has to get off that exit ramp. big delays there. i've checked with some of the surrounding cameras as well. it doesn't seem to be backed up too far past the vine street expressway. we're seeing a slowdown just in this area. your best bet for anç alternat taking the schuylkill expressway and headed eastbound, take the vine street expressway before you get to the schuylkill so you won't be sitting in that mess right there. take the eastbound vine. we're still in the green. head to 95 in either direction that way or make a left at 34th street bridge, head to wharton street to the schuylkill expressway eastbound ramp just below and you'll come out down here. that could be an alternate for you there.

tractor-trailer accident. that's closing it around university avenue. you can see that on our map system here. we are seeing the string of delays. this is where we were looking at our camera. it's starting just to see the end of the delay and backup. moving down the vine street expressway will be a good bet, down to 95. a alternatively, make a left at 34th street bridge, wharton street, eastbound on the schuylkill. you can see it's smooth sailing there. we're starting to see westbound delay by the scene. even though the lanes are back open. earlier we had the westbound side closed as welt. watch for that. we're also watching the 42 freeway. let's do a check of the other majors. into philadelphia on the 42 freeway northbound from 55 to the walt, five-minute trip there, no problems heading southbound. we'll keep you updated on the schuylkill. today we are in for a fall warmup, already 60 degrees outside. temperatures expected to hit the

the suburbs won't last either. kennett square, 57 and 59 in warrenton, heading into the upper 70s this afternoon. warming to near 80 degrees. a few showers overnight staying to the north. sprinkles are out of the picture for us. this next line of showers, which is getting closer to us, i expect this is going to fall apart. unlikely we'll see any rain drops during the day today. we are going to get some serious summer heat this afternoon. back for summer today. as the week goes on, we will likely see some record temperatures. the best chance of seeing records fall in philadelphia, not today, getting closer to the record of 85 tomorrow afternoon. but wednesday is most likely as the record is lower. 80 degrees the record in philadelphia. unusually warm any way you look at it. 80s for the next three days and then the temperatures start to come down. as clouds increase, we get a chance of showers for thursday and into friday. that cold front comes through, drops the temperatures for friday and for the weekend, it
will come down a bit more. 40s and low 50s over the weekend in the morning. 60s in the afternoon. and even a bit cooler, back to fall next week with low 60s for monday, tuesday and wednesday. >> bill, thank you. 6:21. the north carolina governor is calling an attack on a gop building an attack on democracy. we'll show you the damage done after a fireple booing and the threat the vandals left behind. and how atlantic city has to address its budget crisis today. i can't believe we're doing this. gus, you're not scared are you? you're the second most famous groundhog in pennsylvania. i don't like thunder!

expressway eastbound ramp, that will drop you off around in this direction right over here. you can head to 95 or wherever you were going, your final destination there. but for now, that little portion on the eastbound side of the schuylkill is closed. the westbound side is open. we're seeing slowdowns by the scene, possibly gaper delay as well. watching for a scheduled open, this is for the tacony palmyra. it was scheduled for this morning. our live team coverage of the accident on 76 east continues now with nbc 10's pamela osborne. she has a close-up view of the crash. pam? >> rosemary, a little bit of good news. i'll step out of the way so you can see for yourself. that truck is finally being towed out of the eastbound lanes this morning. it's taken them a while to get all of this cleared up. i'll tell you why. that truck was loaded down with beer. they were having to remove the
load from the back of that truck before they could get it on that tow truck to get it out of here. i know we were talking about the westbound lanes being open this morning. you can see state police still here, still doing their accident investigation. that tractor-trailer we know was involved in an accident with a car earlier this morning. but you can see they're kind of standing in some of the westbound lanes here. even though the traffic is open, keep in mind that they're going to be doing some work there throughout the morning. your best advice is to take it really slow, avoid this area. of course, give them the road to conduct this accident investigation as it's taking place right now. that's all halan as we' happeni talking to you right now. that's the latest for now in grays ferry, pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. >> pamela, thanks for the update.
6:34. 60 degrees outside. for septa riders, the clock is ticking. in two weeks, buses, subways and trolley service may stop. septa workers voted over the weekend to strike if they can't reach a new deal. nbc 10's matt delucia is live in east falls with the details on this story. matt? >> septa riders hope it doesn't come to that, doesn't come to a strike. some 5,000 union workers voted to authorize that strike that could leave transportation centers, like the wissahickon transportation center empty. they unanimously decided to walk off the city's subways, trolleys and buses by november 1st if a deal is not reached by then. workers and school children will be stranded. also looking ahead to election day on november 8th. that could be a problem. voters may not be able to get transportation to their polling places. >> i won't vote. i won't vote.
you know, i'm not going to try to inconvenience somebody to come and get me unless the polling places are going to send people out.ç >> it's important enough, you're going to do what you have to get done. >> you might remember septa workers narrowly avoided a strike two years ago around this time. some of the sticking points remain today including pension equity between managers and workers, better health care benefits and more consistent work schedules. union claims that managers are getting special treatment. >> tell themselves they deserve more, we deserve less. we're not going to tolerate that. >> septa responded to the vote with a written statement, quote, while we hope that the union does not exercise its right to strike, we are focusing on reaching a new contract that's in the best interest of our riders, employees and stakeholders. there's no word yet on any corn continue jenscy plans if a strike does happen. septa regional rail, it's important to note, would not be affected about i that strike if
that should happen. we'll be following what happens in the next several weeks. >> 6:37. from our jersey shore bureau, atlantic city faces a deadline today in its budget crisis. published reports say the city must submit a revised spending plan to avoid a state takeover. atlantic city's councilent deucdeuce -- introduced a budget that was less but officials say they have concerns with the plan. now to decision 2016, a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll of likely voters across the country shows hillary clinton with an 11-point lead. 48% to 37%. trump was on the attack again yesterday arguing that the system is rigged against him.
he tweeted the election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing crooked hillary. but also at many polling places. sad. on the "today" show, rudy giuliani said there could be cheating in our region. >> philadelphia is an example of where you often have cheating, chicago. but that's not the real problem. the real problem is it appears 80% to 85% of the media is against him. >> on "meet the press" yesterday, mike pence appeared to say they will respec the results. the first two of debates, polls show the race is very tight with both campaigns spending millions of dollars for ads. >> yesterday, "the philadelphia inquirer" endorsed katie mcginty. paper wrote she has a grasp on
the human consequences of government policieses and seeks to improve the quality of life for all. the paper criticized pat toomey for his support for gop presidential nominee donald trump which it called, quote, politically expedient. well, temperatures are expected to soar into the 80s today. meteorologist bill henley is tracking the warmup in the neighborhood forecast. bill, and some fog. >> yes, we're getting a warmer start. with warm air can come moisture. we're seeing that this morning. some areas of thick fog, dense fog won't last all day. with warming temperatures, the fog disappears. we have a summer-like afternoon with partly sunny çskies. beautiful afternoon. it's not going to feel like autumn. this evening, the temperatures will cool down into the 70s. by tomorrow morning, upper 60s for much of the area. and helping with the warmup, the southwesterly winds, doing two things. it will give you warmer temperatures and bring in the additional moisture. that's why it feels muggy and that's why part of the area
