mile visibility. stand by for a foggy start this morning. also a warm one. look at these numbers. 58 degrees in philadelphia. 50s for the suburbs. that following is in the low 50s in new jersey. 65 in delaware. really a warm start even in the lehigh valley. a big warmup this afternoon. we'll see temperatures climb to 80 degrees for delaware. cooler in lehigh valley as showers hold off. first thing with the clouds and then showers later in the morning. and then showers likely to swing through in new jersey and the suburbs as well. certainly not an all day rainfall. we'll look at the forecast when i come back in less than ten minutes. still no end in strike for the third day of the septa strike. talks will resume later this morning. septa's chair called a meeting to negotiate in good faith and if necessary to suspend the strike for election day. we're working now to get response from the union.
nbc10's pamela osborne is with commuters to see what's happening right now. but let's start with "first alert" traffic reporter jessica boyington. jessica. >> tracy, we're updating you every ten minutes on the regional rails for any delays we see. right now, we're just letting you know what to expect because they occurred yesterday morning and additionally into the evening commute as well. we started to have about a 15-minute delay. we'll see regional ripple effect. there's an accident on woodhaven road on the northbound side. one lane still getting by. not a lot of traffic in the area. looks like a police officer and ambulance there as well. so something definitely want to be cautious. there's an accident at westwood street. now to new jersey over in bellmawr, there's a disabled tractor trailer. just before exit 26m before you
get to 76 or 676. maybe you have to get to the freeway. it's right over there on the shoulder. so watch for that. either way, you see we're still in the green for the most part on 295. vai. we continue our live team coverage. we want you to see what the commute is looking like as you head out the door. >> nbc10's pamela osborne is live in university city. pamela. >> reporter: well, things are pretty quiet at this particular station right now. the biggest hangup between the union and septa seems to be pensions. both sides did meet again later this morning, overnight. so far, they have not been able to work out a deal. late 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 assure the public if a deal isn't reached by tuesday, the strike will be suspended by election day to get people an
opportunity to get to the polls. if not, septa says it will enjoin in the strike. we haven't heard from the union since the talking ended. in the early hours of this morning, the union wanted to increase pension packages. they wanted to keep health care affordable. and they're also demanding steadier schedules for employee. many in ways, the strike has already crippled the city when the buses, subways and trolleys stopped. more than 900,000 people were left trying to figure out alternative ways to get around. >> it takes me about 15 or 20 minutes to get to work. today it took me 2 1/2 hours. >> d.c. doesn't this problem. new york doesn't have this problem. we allow our unions to have so much power and control that it shuts our city down. >> reporter: and those talks are scheduled to resume at 11:00 this arrange. we, of course, will be monitoring those negotiations throughout the day. reporting live in university city i'm pamela osborne, "nbc10
news." and the impact, of course, on the 60,000 students who use septa to get to school in philadelphia. among them the students at spring garden. we talked to an 11th grade here walked 52 blocks to get there yesterday. for the rest of the week, you'll hear tucker saying he'll were you a relative who lives closer to the school. >> not an option not to come. >> i think there should be something written within the contract that they cannot shut the city down and hold everyone else hostage. >> officials at the school reports the septa strike affects their high school students the most. with attendance down around 60%. no matter how long the strike will last, we're with you every step of the way. you can count on the team for your septa survival guide. we'll have you covered all morning long. be sure to tune in again at 4:00 for new developments that happen. you can count on the nbc10 on
air and the app. we're following breaking news out of south philadelphia. >> police found a burned can body under a schuylkill overpass. nbc10's matt delucia is live at the scene. >> reporter: tracy and vai, police right now have no evidence to indicate that this body was intentionally set on fire. but the atf is here investigating. they have a dog sniffing around to see if there were any accelerants used or this was, in fact, accidental. help step out of the way. right where it meets up with 72. we still have a fire truck at the scene. this is about 2:30 this morning. people are driving around this area. they called 911 because they saw something on fire. it wasn't until firefighters got here that they saw there was a human body engulfed in flames. found under the schuylkill expressway. the body was burned so badly, at this point, they don't know how old the person is or either if
it's a man or a woman. police described the spot as a makeshift homeless camp but there was no one here when firefighters showed up. you can tell us how unusual this is for something like this to happen? >> anytime you find a body fully engulfed in flames we're going to naturally going to use water to extinguish the fire, that is unusual. >> reporter: the medical examiner still here at the scene. the body was removed from that location in the last half hour, at this point, police tell me there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body other than the burns, of course. oftentimes, police say homeless individuals start a fire to keep themselves warm. bear in mind. we're close to 60 degrees right now. that theory is at the bottom of the list. all of those ramps are open at this point, even as this investigation continues at this hour. i'm live in south philadelphia, matt delucia, "nbc10 news."
and in decision 2016, both candidates are focusing on battleground states. >> hillary clinton and donald trump will be in north carolina today. take a look at the nbc news presidential battleground map. the numbers at the top are the estimated electoral votes. you can see with the blue one on the left, clinton has more estimated votes than trump. in the middle, the yellow line shows 84 toss-up votes. clinton's lead has diminished according to say monmouth university poll. the poll published just yesterday has clinton still leading by now by only four points. last month, the lead was by ten points. while the candidates themselves are in north carolina today, trump's wife melania will be in chester county this afternoon. >> mrs. trump is holding a rally at the sports complex in berlin at 2:00 this afternoon. this will be her first major public speech since the republican national convention this summer. we're five days from the

the union to engage in good faith negotiations in order to bring an end to the walkout. the union has not issued an official response, but we're working to get one. bridging the achievement gap. a local man is trying to do just that by turning old donated computers into special learning tools to kids and their families that otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it. >> pamela osborne has more on a mission to put a computer in every home of each child. >> reporter: at a warehouse, volunteers with team children begin the day's work. >> put in a hard drive, put into a computer. >> reporter: the old computers you see here donated by businesses. and put in the hands of people like jerry grover who works to get these computers ready for young customers. >> they get a monitor, they get a keyboard, they get a mouse. all they have to do is take it home and plug it in. >> reporter: all of this is

276, and 676 moving into philadelphia. more updates on the roads and regional rails when i come back. if you were watching, if you happened to be up late last night, you saw the rain delay in the ninth inning, i guess that system is rolling in here as well. >> headed our way. bill henley. >> yes, it was just after the ninth inning. i know it well. we'll see those showers later this afternoon. it's completely dry. if you're heading out, a mild morning, winds are blowing out of the southwest that's bringing the warm air in but i am tracking for showers later this morning and gusty winds will be blowing into the evening hours as clouds push out of here. right now, fog in the suburbs, 67 degrees, that's where it's thicker. as the temperatures have dropped into the 40s in abockliacklin. and the fog has thickened up, dense fog in lancaster. light fog for reading, allentown
down under a mile there. pottstown is a mile and a quarter. the rain is going to wait until later this morning and afternoon. it doesn't look all that impressive. it's starting to fall apart but what will be impressive, the warmup today. some areas closer to 80 this afternoon. we'll see showers by lunchtime in lehigh valley and berks county. and then they're falling apart at 3:00. just a chance of showers as we go into the afternoon hours and then the winds clear things out in a hurry. so that's really going to bring the autumn chill returning to the area. 76 in philadelphia today. look at the cooldown that will carry us right through the weekend. the good news is, it's going to be dry. so it's perfect weather for the walk for a.l.s. that's sunday morning, hope to see you there. 10:00, registration. walk starts at 11:00.

a lending practice so outrageous, most states banned it. but at the bank founded by pat toomey it was business as usual. forcing small business owners out of their homes. toomey even used his power in the senate to help himself, voting to gut rules that protect us and crack down on big banks. pat toomey. out for himself, not us. dscc is responsible for the content of this advertising.
