bob kelly especially north and west of the city because of those changeable temperatures and that changes the type of precipitation that we get. >> yes, certainly. of course, depending upon where you begin and end you can see a little bit of everything this morning. again, defensive driving. here's a great example a little bit of everything. we have heavy rain. you can see it in the road surface here. we have that spray coming up off the cars and trucks in front of you. this is construction zone, so again, the drainage grates are never located, we get that quick ponding, puddling on all of the major roadways. the look at this tractor trailer coming on by you can see how it is kicking water left and white and we're dealing with some fog, it is little will bit of everything from mother nature on the breakfast buffet. here's a live look at ben franklin bridge an example of the fog you cannot even make out the sky scrapers, i could not even make out the house the houses all lit up on boat house row on my way in this morning. speed, and the temperature, will be the two things that determine our rush hour right
