throughout today and even into tomorrow, as well. here's the current temperatures, most of us in the 60s, although it is feeling maybe a little better than yesterday afternoon when we were in the 80s. 59 in pottstown. we're at 67 in philadelphia. 62 in mt. holly. 60 for allentown. lancaster, you're at 65. and 69 at the atlantic city marina. a lot of us still fairly warm for this time of year. during the morning hours, these temperatures look like more of what we would see in the afternoon for highs. we will be cooler than yesterday. today, our fall feel meter, going from is it still summer to a change in the air. the question is when do we get out to break out the flannel, maybe pumpkin spice everything. we'll tell you in a few minutes if we'll get into the 60s or lower the next few days. right now we have to talk traffic with jessica boyington. starting on the schuylkill expressway this morning, our cameras around 30th. looks like they're removing some of this construction here. you can still see right behind the graphic flashing lights up

>> reporter: taxes you can pay with a postcard. that's the promise from republicans. >> a middle-class miracle. this is a revolutionary change, and the biggest winners will be the everyday american workers as jobs start pouring into our country. >> reporter: here's the plan -- business taxes slashed to 20%. individual taxes narrowed to three brackets. >> the top rate on the wealthiest comes down, and the bottom rate on working class families goes up. what kind of plan is this? >> reporter: there would be fewer deductions, but the big ones, charitable donations and home mortgage interest, stay. the child tax credit expanded, the standard deduction doubled, the death tax mostly benefiting the wealthy, gone. easing your tax burden is expected to cost trillions of dollars. >> they have to find a way to pay for it if they want to make it work. >> this is a now or never
moment. >> reporter: democrats urging the majority, don't do it alone. >> let's have hearings. let's have people. >> reporter: republicans insist their plan will create jobs and growth. they want to get it done by the end of this year. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. >> nbc10 will be in harrisburg with president trump. you can look for live reports starting on nbc10 news this afternoon at 4:00. pennsylvania governor tom wolf wants a ban on bump stocks. the devices were used in last week's massacre in las vegas. they essentially turn semiautomatic guns into fully automatic weapons. several pennsylvania lawmakers have said they will introduce life to make them illegal. yesterday governor wolf announced his support for the plan. new jersey lawmakers have introduced a bill which would stop the sale and possession of bump stocks. if passed, dealers and people who own one will be required to surrender them to police within 90 days or face criminal charges. a high-powered rifle, 300
rounds of ammo, and materials to make five pipe bombs. federal agents recovered all those items from the atlantic city house of a woman whom they say wanted to wreak havoc. according to atlantic city investigators, daniel deemers also known as danielle dealerem was trying to sell them for whatever she could get. a pair made the sale thursday, but it was to an undercover officer. most of the charges are related to the unlawful possession and sale of weapons. #vegasstrong. signs surrounded the rink as the las vegas golden knights honored the victims and first responders of the deadly shooting massacre. the team played their first home game beginning with an emotional tribute to the 58 people killed and hundreds more injured. >> to all the brave first responders that have worked tirelessly and courageously
throughout the whole tragedy, we thank you.

heartbreak and a search for answers after a woman is murdered. the body of madison walb was discovered in berks county. how she died remains a mystery. matt delucia joins us live from the heidelberg police department with more on what we're learning from investigators. matt? >> reporter: right, rosemary. during an autopsy a couple of days ago, it was determined that madison walb was murdered. the big question is why and how this happened. take a look. this is a photo of the 23-year-old who was from reading. her body was found in a wooded area sunday off of riegel road. the road is secluded. investigators have a lot of work to do in figuring out what exactly happened here. we spoke with one of madison's best friends yesterday who can't believe something like this would happen to someone she knew so well and why someone would want to kill her. police are waiting on toxicology tests. perhaps that might shed light on what happened here and what's going on with the case.
those answers will not come for at least several more weeks. until then, berks county detectives do hope that someone comes forward with more information. for now, live in lower heidelberg, berks county, nbc10 news. good morning, everyone. jessica boyington with you now and a check of the roads. we're watching the schuylkill expressway. around route 202 is the camera i have behind me here. we're still watching some of that construction where we have single-file lanes moving through at least on this westbound side right here. we can see the construction crew up ahead. in between the conshohocken curve and around 202, we're watching the work. again, that typically clears around 5:00. hopefully that will be out of the way soon. we'll be watching that. there's also a crash on hilltop township, southbound around route 13. and in telemensen, sumneytown

70 at 10:00 a.m. we'll turn to the mid 70s this afternoon. that's where we'll stop. this is about a ten-degree difference from yesterday's high temperatures. and notice the winds coming in from the east will help keep us on the cooler side. instead of that southwest flow, you've got the east flow. that changes things for us. delaware, 68 degrees for right now. 73 at noon. around mid 70s in the afternoon with on and off rain showers rolling by. you could say the same in the pennsylvania suburbs. low 70s for highs. and rain on tap for our wednesday. we'll time that rain out with your future model coming up in a few minutes. >> all right. thank you. about a quarter of 5:00. a role modern-turned real model. a delaware mom's story of strength and how it made her the face of a store's new marketing campaign. and preparing for the panthers. why the coach says he's showing more trust in quarterback carson wentz. we'll tell you who won't be taking the field on thursday.

atop all the flames, down aurora lane which is burning on either side. >> reporter: pushed by winds gusting to at times 70 miles per hour and leaving behind ashes and rubble. unable to sear away the resolve of survivors. >> we're americans, we will survive. we will rebuild and move on. all of us. >> reporter: that can't start until the fires are stopped. jay gray, nbc news, napa, california. now to this news -- he says he took a knee to take a stand. a local college quarterback tells us his coach kicked him off the football team for kneeling during the national anthem. >> this incident comes as the nfl considers a new approach for how it handles player protests. when jyree duranty said he would continue to stand up for what he believes at the all-bright college in reading. he was let go after taking the
knee for the national anthem during the second time this weekend. two of his former teammates told us the players had agreed to stand as a team and that durante broke their trust. >> we trusted him throughout the week after he told us time and time again that he was going to stand. when you can't have a player on a team that you can trust, they have to go. >> we're brothers. we love each other. the fact that he lied to everybody is -- he deserves that. >> i would tell you, you fight for what you believe in and never back down to nobody. you don't bow to no one. >>drante's family -- duranty's family said, this is bigger than football. they hope this motivates him even more to fight racism. the nfl says controversy over player protests will be front and center at next week's owners meetings. commissioner goodell says the league will consider a rule mandating players stand during the national anthem. the code says they should stand for the national anthem. that wording might change to must stand. in a message to all 32 team
owners, goodell said the anthem issue is dividing the nfl from fans. he said the league needs to get past this controversy. a show of unity after an act of hate. this was the scene on the field before yesterday's soccer match between quakertown and cheltenham high schools. it shows the players all standing together during the national anthem. a group called quakertown community outreach also held signs apologizing to students from cheltenham for an incident involving rock throwing and racial slurs at a game last week. the school district says the students involved in that incident have been suspended. knowledge is power. that was the message during a fireside chat on women's financial security in chester county. >> if you are wondering where tracy davidson is this morning, she's probably sleeping in. that's because she was at the event last night. she was all part of the conversation here in westchester. the event helped to raise awareness about financial security initiatives. and last night's event raised more than $10,000 for the
domestic violence center of chester county. ten minutes before 5:00 a.m. and cooler temperatures this morning. 67 degrees. it's been in the 70s the last few mornings. >> we'll take it. we'll definitely take it. something tells me it may be short-lived. up and down this month of october. meteorologist krystal klei starting us off. fill us in. >> october has been with 80s, strange to see. we will notice a cooldown and this is part of the reason why. rain is moving in. snag the umbrella before you head out. you're going to have to worry about this all day long. now it's not going to be a washout. you can tell from the current picture. instead, light showers in berks, close to chester county, passing through parts of lancaster. the steadier rain is farther south. this will regenerate showers through the day. on and off rain in the forecast. not a washout. it's not going to be as heavy as we saw a couple of days ago. you will notice the rain.
we'll go through the hour-by-hour model. this model through 10:00 a.m. is underplaying things, i think. i think spotting showers here certainly are possible by 10:00 a.m. a little more of the steady rain over sussex county, even cape may county, the southern tip, could see some of the steadier rain activity moving through. now the heaviest stuff is to the south for now. look as we get into the afternoon. scattered showers in waves passing on by. this is at 2:30. we go through 6:00, not a huge difference. the commute home, you might need to use the windshield wipers with the scattered showers. note, though, this is not any strong to severe weather. thunderstorms, isolated at best, around the southernmost edge of the viewing area. everyone else, scattered showers. it lasts into thursday morning. this is 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, back on, still going to be talking about at least some rain passing through. it will linger farther south into the afternoon. really doesn't break down entirely until the evening hours. you're going to notice today, tomorrow, definitely on the rainier side than what we saw yesterday.
here's the current weather setup. we're at 67 degrees in philadelphia, a little bit of an improvement from yesterday. the warmer air is starting to sink to the south. we've got cool air building, and the storm's center will roll this way. that will provide cooler conditions. and the wrap-around effect will pull in the east flow which means that helps with keeping temperatures down a bit in comparison to yesterday. yesterday we made it to the 80s. today we will cap in the 70s. 75 the high in philadelphia. then look at this -- by thursday, we're finally feeling like fall. 66 degrees for our forecast high. still scattered showers. friday, mostly cloudy and 69. already starting to tick back up. didn't rosemary say i don't think it's going to last long? it's not. we'll feel fall for a brief period of time. 72 today to 63 tomorrow in the suburbs. 67 on friday. in the lehigh valley and berks county, you see the chance of showers linger through thursday. that's the same deal in new jersey. at the shore in delaware, we could even see spot showers friday evening as those temperatures sit in the 60s.
we'll talk about your weekend coming up in the next half hour. >> see you in a few minutes. about five or six minutes before 5:00 a.m. we'll check the admiral wilson in camden. >> that's right. jessica boyington keeping an eye on south jersey. her roots. what's going on out there? >> yeah. coming from that direction and heading into philadelphia, used to make that drive so much. admiral wilson boulevard, the ben franklin bridge toll plaza in here. so far, so good. not seeing any problems. the bridges are good, too. keep checking in with them, especially for scheduled openings over the tacony palmyra or burlington bristol bridge but not yet. in bell mawr, if you are in jersey, before you get there, route 168 to the black horse pike southbound to 295 southbound, currently blocked with a construction project. they typically clear around now. hopefully they're on or close to schedule. seems like they will be because they usually are. we're watching that, too. another crash at sumneytown pike. and mass transit looks on or close to schedule for amtrak,

(gentle music) ♪ a delaware mom is now a poster child for hard-working women after overcoming one of the biggest challenges of her life. >> trisha sullivan is a mother, breast cancer survivor, and now one of the faces of dress barn's new marketing campaign. representatives with the retail company says it was sullivan's public health battle. she was open about it. smoke about -- spoke about it on social media. got their attention and made her the perfect role model for other women. >> even when i was going through it, i never shied away there telling people what was going on -- shied away from telling people what was going on. i had six surgeries in six months, and it didn't end there. >> she says it's strange to see

krystal klei with the most accurate weather forecast. >> you may have noticed on the radar view, a lot of the action still out of reach of most of the viewing area. you're not talking a ton of rain. light showers moving through berks county and edging into chester county. then steadier rain sitting over sussex county. over sussex county, we are looking at just spots of thunderstorms just to the south. in maryland, but could see an isolated thunderstorm there. this is going to continue to move along from west to east. so more rain to come throughout the day is what we have in the forecast. look at the live view. this is not going to be a constant rain. we don't have a front or some kind of storm system that's set up over us. instead there's a nice moisture push that's starting to move in. this will provide the on and off rain showers that we've been talking about for the last few days. current temperatures, 60s. a little better for some of us than yesterday morning. we're at 62 in mt. holly. 60 in allentown. dover at 69. atlantic city, you're at 64 degrees. as we go through the next
