model. take a look about midnight, we're going to see that fog dropping off to a mile or less, visibility could be around zero, meaning very thick fog as you're driving, so just be very careful. coming up i'll give you a timing of the rain because we do expect more during the day tomorrow. from our delaware bureau tonight. why is the city of wilmington keeping one of its own fire trucks from fight fires. city leaders say the move is to say money. >> but will homes and businesses be at risk? >> why don't we go for 10:00, is that good for you? >> josey has a salon in wilmi wilmingen the, she fears if a fire breaks out in her salon,
