regional rails to get into center city. some people used uber and lyft. a lot more cars on roadway as well, despite the fact that it took many commuters a lot longer to get to work, they're getting ready to do it all again today. >> yesterday was pretty good. i got here about same time, train was on time. it was wonderful. coming back is the problem. i am at 30th and market. they didn't know what was going on. >> as she said, the evening commute may be something different but as far as things go this morning, if you're just getting up, heading down here to take the regional rail, it looks as though everything is running on schedule. people are getting on the trains and there's still room to sit at this point. we're reporting live this morning at the fern rock station, pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. >> thank you. both sides of the septa strike are expected to return to the bargaining table this morning. yesterday, the union rejected an offer from the transit agency

sets the stage for a possible state takeover. governor chris christie's administration announced yesterday it would not accept the proposal. the five-year financial turnaround plan called for laying off 100 workers, cutting spend and selling off vacant land. those moves would help the city pay off $500 million in debt. the takeover would give the state control of the struggling city's finances. don guardian and marty small released a statement saying in part, we are truly disappointed that the state did not recognize the value of this thoughtful and comprehensive plan, this plan was reviewed by many who are deeply respected in the financial community. and deemed as a possible -- as a truly viable alternative to a state takeover. the state truly missed a golden opportunity. 6:08. let's jump and get a look at weather and how it's looking there. it looks like 30th street station behind you, bill? >> it is.

philadelphia. low 70s for the lehigh valley. any fog disappears quickly and delaware and new jersey warming up to 72 degrees this afternoon. a beautiful fall day. i'll take you through it hour by hour when i come back in less than ten minutes. >> i'll see you in a little bit, bill. the septa strike it into its second day in philadelphia. contract talks are set to resume after breaking off overnight. septa reports both sides continue to make progress. the walkout as idled buses, trolleys and subways. septa warns riders to expect more delays today. >> nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington joins us with a check on the morning rush. >> the regional rails are running. they're slow now. chestnut hill west inbound service is running with a total of 20-minute delays all across the board. 15-minute delays on elwyn line. we're also seeing 11-minute delays on the norristown line, specifically train 21. we're starting to see the
beginnings of the morning rush and overflow on the roads. we're also watching an accident scene on the schuylkill expressway on the westbound side, moving out of center city around belmont avenue is our camera we're looking at now. traffic is moving now, which is an improvement from a few moments ago. the drive time, 70 minutes for your drive time from the westbound side of the schuylkill from center city to the blue route, now 71 minutes. it's still going up. average speeds now 10 miles an hour. we're almost down into the single digits. this is typically a 12-minute trip or so. we're seeing about an hour delay on the westbound schuylkill. that's a big deal. also watching an accident with delays on woodhaven road headed eastbound. you can see them right in here, right before bristol pike. we've been watching this all morning. a tractor-trailer fire out in mount laurel township on the new jersey turnpike headed northbound around exit 4. that's route 73. more updates for the schuylkill and the schuylkill expressway.
>> you may have to deal with another tricky commute this morning. pam, what can you tell us? >> tracy, you're absolutely right. strike or not, people have to get to work this morning. and they're getting here to the train station in a variety of ways. take a look at people come in here this morning. some people are walking. others got rides here. some people are driving and parking their own cars. we've seen seen a few taxi cabs drop people off to the platform. they're catching the train to center city. trains here at the fern rock transportation center is rolling through about every 15 minutes. they are running on time. but as you can see, as we really get into this morning commute, we're seeing things starting to get pretty full. i will say this. we're not seeing as much crowding as we did yesterday. i think that's because after waking up to the strike yesterday morning and dealing with all of the delays, people made other arrangements to get to work today. some people use car ride services like uber and lyft. others relying on family or
friends or car pools. one of the things i notice, there seems to be a lot less confusion here at the station. a lot of people yesterday morning were waking up, figuring it out, trying to determine exactly what they needed to do to get to where they needed to go. today a lot of people are coming here with extra time. they know exactly what train they're catching. they're here in just enough time, getting into the city and they're not having too many problems as of yet this morning. reporting live at the fern rock station, i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. pamela, thanks. count on nbc 10 to help you get around the city during the septa strike. right now on the free nbc 10 app we can help you track the contingency plans available for commuters. we'll be monitoring the negotiation talks all day long. we'll let you know if there are any developments coming this up afternoon on nbc 10 news at 4:00. 6:35 and 53 degrees outside. more information on breaking news coming out of çiowa. two police officers are dead in an ambush shooting. it happened early this morning in des moines.

>> hi, vai. cosby and his defense attorneys should be arriving here at the courthouse in about two hours. this will be the second day of motions regarding what evidence should and should not be allowed in the sexual assault trial of the comedian. the 79-year-old who is free on a $1 million bond is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his cheltenham home more than a decade ago. in a 2005 civil suit, cosby testified to using drug and alcohol in past sexual encounters with women where he denies sexually assaulting anyone. that deposition was the initial focus in this two-day hearing. his defense attorneys are attempting to keep jurors from hearing that old testimony. cosby's attorneys also saying the former prosecutor promised cosby would never be criminally charged that promise should be honored. the current prosecutor argued there was no such agreement in other issues to be put before
the judge include cosby's health. he's legally blind. the most controversial issue, though, the prosecution wants to present testimony from 13 other women, claiming cosby attacked them. his defense attorneys are fighting the presentation of what they're calling evidence of prior bad acts. we'll be here when the comedian and his attorneys arrive as well as when the prosecution begins presenting what it feels should and should not be heard by jurors. live for now in norristown, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. monique, thank you. 6:38. back to work today for jurors in the so-called bridgegate trial. they're deciding the fate of bridget kelly and bill baroni. the jurors asked the judge if they could convict the defendants of causing the traffic jams if they acquitted them of the conspiracy count. they also asked what role the motive should play in their
decision. 6:38. boy, we've been fortunate with this run of good luck of weather. >> yes, it's going to be incredibly warm today. bill? >> it's a beautiful day yesterday, nice rebound from the cold temperatures we had yesterday morning. this morning if you're heading out, it is a much warmer morning. see a nice breeze blowing, the flags in front of 30th street station. areas of fog forming in some of the suburbs. it's light fog. it doesn't last. we'll be into the 70s with lots of sunshine and turning even warmer tomorrow. and a nice mild evening ahead. you'll see a few scattered clouds. no sign of any rain. in fact, no rain until later tomorrow. fog a little bit. it's just thickened up in a couple areas. quakertown, mile and a quarter, holding at a mile and a quarter. nothing more than light fog. any fog around this morning will disappear like that as the temperatures climb from the low 50s into the upper 50s by 10:00 this morning. then at 60s this afternoon. middle 60s by noontime, into the
