allentown just dropped to three quarter miles in visibility. actually the fog reaches into new jersey and delaware too. wilmington is dealing with half-mile visibility. a bit of fog to start with. look at the temperatures, 67 degrees right now in delaware. the fog will disappear. the temperatures will be climbing into the upper 70s and low 80s this afternoon in delaware and philadelphia. we'll see the reading into the 70s. 58 degrees at 7:00. the fog will disappear as the temperatures start to climb, southwesterly winds helping with the warmup. high temperatures nowhere near the normal high of 61 degrees. it will be 76 degrees this afternoon. there say chance, though, of daytime showers for philadelphia, the suburbs, new jersey. most likely in the lehigh valley. delaware, you could see it up to 80 degrees. i'll go through each of the forecast hour by hour. when i come back in less than ten minutes. philadelphia commuters face your hardship with day three of
the septa transit strike. talks will pick up later this morning. septa's board chair is urging union to negotiate in good faith. >> nbc10's "first alert" traffic reporter jessica boyington is watching the roads and the impact of the strike. jessica. >> of course, we're rawatching e regional rails or delays that might come up that we've seen in the last couple of days. we had about a 16-minute delay on the airport line. the high speed line is dealing with a disabled train. all trains will board on the inbound platform. we'll keep our eye on that for you. also watching the roads. this is vine street expressway moving through center city. the cameras around broad street. you can see there's an accident here. this is on the eastbound side. with traffic moving towards 95 and away from the schuylkill expressway. you can see a lot of brake
lights approaching the scene. at this point, moving over the shoulder, we're going to see delays on the scene. about 5:30, we're starting to see more volume. update you on the vine street expressway and keep you updated on the regional rails. >> in philadelphia's university city section. >> that's where nbc10's pamela osborne is live this morning. speaking with commuters, pam, what's the latest? >> reporter: well, good morning, i've got to tell you, it's a bit of a ghosttown at university city this morning. not a lot of movement or with negotiations. the biggest hangup seems to be pension reform. last night, septa released a statement saying on several occasions this week, their negotiator felt progress had been made. but septa is saying the union brought things to a halt. they're also asking the union to ensure the public that if a deal is not reached by tuesday, the strike would be suspended for election day. if not, septa says, it will
enjoin in the strike. the union representing septa workers hasn't spoken until talks broke down overnight. but we do know in addition to pension reform, the union wants to keep health care affordable. they're also demanding steadier schedules for employees. in many ways, the strike has crippled the city. more than 900,000 people have been left trying to figure out alternative ways to get around. >> i know someone who does work for septa. i'm rooting for him. i want him to have what they deserve. but i also need -- i need to get to my children. i haven't seen them since the strike. i just want things to get worked out so everybody can get to where they need to go. >> reporter: as you know, the regional rail is the only service that's running right now. passengers have been using that. other people tell us they've been walking. they've been biking. they've been doing whatever they need to do to get to where they need to go as the strike continues. we know that talks are scheduled
to resume at 11:00 this morning. we'll be following those negotiations throughout the day. reporting live from university center, i'm pamela osborne, ngss in. >> there are winners and losers in the septa strike. >> obviously, lyft, uber and taxis all coming out ahead. and commuters, students and business owners are losing out. businesses are relying on services are hurting. one man tells us his sales are down at the omnnlthe olney stat. at least one business owner that we talked with said he's praying for a quick end to the septa walkout. we'll be with you all morning long and all day long as the strike continues. count on the nbc10 team for your septa survival guide. we have you covered through the
morning to the rush at 6:30. and of course on our nbc10 app. we're following breaking news out of south philadelphia this morning. a burned bold was found under the schuylkill overpass. >> nbc10's matt delucia is live for us on the scene. matt, tell us what happened. >> reporter: vai and tracy, first off, i'll tell you that police left the area just a few minutes ago. but at this point, this case is a big mystery. right behind me, we're on pathe avenue. it was a human body engulfed in flames found by the schuylkill expressway overpass. that body was on a mattress. and burned so badly, that at this point, it's unclear how old this person sore either if it's a man or woman. police described the spot as a
makeshift homeless camp but there was no one else here when the firefighters showed up. >> we don't know if this body was intentionally set on fire. or if it was possibly a homeless person who accidentally caught fire trying to keep warm. >> reporter: now, police tell me, as of this point, they have nothing to prove that this body was intentionally set on fire. and there are no obvious signs of trauma to this body, other than the severe burns. but the big question at this hour is whether is this a murder or just a terrible accident. one thing to point out, because all those crews left and even before then, the roads were all open here. even the ramps up to 76. so, there's no traffic impact at this hour. but again, the medical examiner was here a short time ago. they're going to be performing an autopsy on the body trying to figure out if it was an accident or foul play. live in south philadelphia, mat
delucia. eagles wide receiver josh huff admitted he made a terrible decision. yesterday, he apologized for having a gun and being pulled over for speeding on tuesday. huff faces drug and weapons charges. huff admitted to police he had marijuana, a handgun and bullets. we asked why he was armed. >> i mean, i'm a professional athlete. i mean what professional athlete don't have a gun. i have a wife and i have a son at home. my job is to protect them at all costs. my job is to protect myself as well. >> huff is licensed to carry in texas but not in new jersey where he lives. he isn't being punished by the eagles for now so he does plan to play on sunday. 21 minutes before 6:00. and we've got a dry start this morning with a live view of philadelphia. a bit of fog in the suburbs. and some wet weather on the way. right now, it's dry.
doppler radar showing no activity. the rain drops are falling in pennsylvania. and that is going to be sweeping into our area later this morning and afternoon. just a chance of showers. looks like the heaviest is going to head to the north. most of the area will be dry for the rest of the day. 56 in philadelphia. that's warm this morning. look at the warmup. we'll see enough break in the cloud cover to get sunshine. warm into the low 70s. that's at lunchtime. then upper 70s are possible this afternoon. but the clouds will be building. and we could see some scattered showers during the afternoon hours for philadelphia. the suburbs more likely to see them later this morning and early in the afternoon. a bit of fog in the suburbs. 59 degrees. it will cool down a little bit more so that could thicken the fog up to begin with. then the temperatures start to climb. we'll see a nice warmup in the suburbs and also the lehigh valley. 49 degrees right now. some fog. expect to see fog.
areas most likely to see wet weather will be lehigh valley early this afternoon. and the winds shift. that's going to cool things down and dry it out tonight. clouds building in new jersey. you'll see sunshine this morning. 64 degrees. that's at 10:00. warmer than the normal high temperature. by noon time, 73 degrees and middle to upper 70s this afternoon. just a chance of showers in new jersey. at the shore, mainly dry. sunshine, some clouds. 60s to start with, after 10:00, by noon time, 72 and into the middle 70s with clouds building late this afternoon. in delaware, you'll see the clouds building to 67 degrees right now. fog in the area to start with. but the fog disappears as the temperatures start to climb. and climb they will, into the 70s this afternoon. 70ss today. nowhere near that warm for tomorrow. i'll show you a look ahead with the ten day on ten when i come back in less than ten minutes. 19 minutes before 6:00.
for the duration of the strike, we're going to go to jessica every ten minutes. with septa, people are waking up in shifts. we're casting a wide net. we want to make sure we're getting everybody. >> jessica, you're sort of working a split shift. you're working in the afternoon too. yesterday, you saw a delay in the regional rails and then it jumped back up. >> right. every ten minutes is very important because things change quickly. we could start off with something minor, all of a sudden there's massive delays. just like a disabled train. on the inbound platforms, that could cause delays and then yesterday, actually we had a person actually unfortunately struck on the track. we're also dealing with delays and overcrowding. expecting delays on all regional rails is important. watching the airport train right now, 21-minute delays. anything over 10 or 15 minutes is pretty significant that's
going to mess up your morning commute. here's the vine street expressway, our cameras around broad street. under control. eastbound towards 95, still watching some delays there. that accident scene pushed over into the shoulder now, vai. >> all right, thank you, jessica. it took more than a century, but the chicago cubs finally did it. here's a live look right now at the famed marquee outside of wrigley field. the sign says it all. we'll break down an historic win and the aftermath. now, chicago may be celebrating their cubs, but philly will be honoring some of its biggest sports heroes, too. we'll tell you all about brian dawkins and charlie manual's call to the hall. katie: my mom was a restaurant hostess

the cases thrown outside. he is accused of sexually assaulting an employee in 2004. cosby said the encounter was consensual. his attorneys say the case resurfaced after steele recycled in a campaign ad. >> this is america. the judge in any case is going to tell the jurors over and over. and no juror will be selected unless they can say that they believe that the defendant is presumed incident. >> cosby's attorneys also say he can't defend himself because he is now blind. they also argue that 13 other women accusing cosby of sexual assault should not be able to testify in the trial. the judge has not decided when he will hear the motions. the cubs have won the series! >> that's the words of joe buck
