so, it starts as rain in philadelphia, but it will eventually turn over to snow, and that whole batch of the leading edge of the snow, just continues to shift south as we go forward in time. fifty-six is our current temperature, meanwhile at the airport at 62 degrees in atlantic city, so tough to believe, by looking at these values, that we've got big snowstorm on the way. but, it is, and it is all the way for tomorrow, and certainly at least for now, we've got that quiet calm before the storm. some sunshine in the forecast today, few clouds as well, still smidge breezy, also cooler than it was yesterday. mid upper 50's cents at best, poconos, hit 49 degrees. big changes coming our way. the timing unfortunately really couldn't be worse for one of the busiest holiday -- holiday travel days. >> good morning, speaking of busy, as we take a look at our roadways this morning, we're definitely looking like rush hour. it is a full swing rush hour at this time. this is 95, if you are headed out of the area of the northeast making your way down toward center city, it is
filled. from academy down through to cottman, you know through the construction zone there, already busy. then again approaching the betsy ross bridge, making your way down through to the vine street expressway. traveling northbound 95 also slow going around the area of cottman avenue, at this shot here. traveling on the schuylkill expressway, we are seeing delays, definitely, westbound, as you make your way throughout your western suburbs, approaching city avenue, all the way out through to about gladwynn, the lent that far volume. you know the schuylkill expressway, it only continues to build. we take a look at the speed censors, 14 your average speed censor on 95, again out of the northeast, 24 on the schuylkill expressway, 55 looking great on 476. no major problems if you are traveling on the pa turnpike or northeast extension, however, we do have accident situation, it has been moved to the shoulder, westbound on the pa turnpike at bensalem. notice, behind that censor there, we are seeing delays, stem back toward that bristol area. so, traveling throughout bucks county using the pa turnpike, you will definitely want to give yourself more time.
also we have an accident situation not too far away from pottstown, route 724 at kline avenue. something to be mindful of there. traveling in new jersey, although it is indicating green here, on the 42, as well as 55, both the the northbound direction, seeing the usual slow downs this morning. ukee? >> vittoria, thank you. as you know, there is fall out from grand jury decision not to indict ferguson police officer, darren wilson, in the fatal shooting of michael brown. the decision set off violence in the st. louis suburb and peaceful protest in philadelphia. now to talk about the decision, and of course the aftermath, we've invited doctor mark timer pastor of mother bethel l african-american episcopal church and bishop duane, executive director of power, win of course stands for philadelphians organized to witness and empower and rebuild. gentlemen, reverend, thank you so much for being here. your initial reaction when you heard he the decision come down last night? >> well, i was not surprised, heart broken but not surprised. >> and yourself?
>> you know, as i was growing up, my mother used to have a statement, she says you hope for the worse but you hope for the best but expect the worse. and i think that that's exactly the position that we were in, we were hoping that for once this was not going to be the case, that we would actually see an indictment. but we expect that we were not going to see that. >> we ends stand according to the prosecute nerve st. louis the grand jury, they said pour their heart and souls into this decision. when you hear that, same type of reaction? >> well, i mean, you know, they had to work with the they had a was presented to them. and i don't have a loft confidence that the prosecutor did his best to give them the kind of they had a would lead to indictment. so i don't doubt that they did what they thought was best given the set of circumstances that they were presented w i think that speaks to what the real problem is in this case and why we really need some federal intervention. >> i see you nodding your head. >> yes, absolutely. first of all the prosecuting attorney, mccullough, his father was a police officer has that was killed by an african-american man, in the 24 years he's been the
prosecuting attorney in st. louis county he's never prosecuted aggregious police sheeting, in his 24 year career. so we do not have high expectations gooing that. but i think, and i agree with doctor tyler, as he said, we believe federal intervention is required at the moment. the department of justice can continue to press for civil rights violations on the part of darren wilson in the death of young man michael brown. and we are going to be encouraging that to happen, and will be reaching out to the white house, as well as the company of justice to make sure that they'll follow through on them. >> talk about the reaction among the community. i wrote down a quote that michael brown senior said, and he said hurting other and destroying property not the answer. i want to lead to incredible change, positive change, let us not make noise, let us make a difference. now, your reaction to that statement, and what we have seen all around the country? >> that's really what our group is about power. as you well know, that we are philadelphians, and we're really organized to look at things in the long-term way.
last night, little bit out of character for us, again shall usually looking at long-term systemic problems and how to solve them. but we recognize in moments like this, you really have to be present, and so we're looking at the systemic issues, racism, not only police shootings but also our are evident in the way in which school cuts gets funding, are contribute, especially in pennsylvania, we talk about living wages, airport workers, the lining, work below minimum wage, mostly people of color. we have a loft work to do. not just the police shooting, as terrible that as this; but other issues, as well. >> talk about the racial divide. when it comes to that. >> sure. i think that there are a variety of issues, philadelphia is minority majority city. we are one of the -- the poorest big city in america. they're discontinuing racial divide that exist here, new york times not too long ago said we're the most third segregated area in the country. you know, poverty has been sort of encapsulate in the
certain areas in our community, and we have to begin to move beyond that. part of our continuing work, as a racial and economic just tis organization; both to address the impact of economic inch justice, but also, look at racial -- race impact deeply what we do. that for philadelphia to be the sit that needs to be, we all have to work together, black, white, latino, asian, native american, we all have to work together to be able to build a better philadelphia. >> just one race, the human rales. gentlemen, thank you for being here this morning. we appreciate you. we will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest developments on our website. you can fine more information by heading over to cbsphilly.com. erika, back over to you. >> thanksgiving of course just two days away. day known for glut any. but all of that food can leave with you some holiday heartburn. coming up doctor rob tells us what foods to avoid, and what to put on your plate so you can enjoy the thrilled action. >> tree in one pennsylvania

morning to kick start the day. as it certainly is. tough to believe, as we go next, to our snowfall map, this is what we're looking ahead to by tomorrow. yep, snowfall amounts, on the order of a half foot or more, through reading, allentown, lehigh valley just in general. and the mount pocono area here, as you go up toward the i80 interchange, that's where you're likely going to seat bulls ian sweet spot set up for heaviest snow, more marginal with freezing levels here, though, around philly. we start with rain. it will turn to snow. through the second half of the day. and that's when we pick up two-4 inches out that far from the jersey turnpike basically on southeast, looking at coating to inch or two, probably get gipped of any snow down the shore, but that's where you will find the strongest winds. so, i guess there is your trade off if you are looking at it that way. meanwhile through your eyewitness weather seven day forecast, once past tomorrow, smooth sailing for a good long weekend here right through sunday, we expect dry weather generally speaking, in shot,
monday. >> vittoria. >> thank you, katie. right now traveling on the schuylkill expressway, it is just rush hour, but i know, definitely not going to be good. this is how it starts. 6:46, on the schuylkill expressway, and this is just the early comings of rush hour as you will notice, seeing eastbound delays, only continues to build. traveling on the westbound side of the schuylkill expressway, not seeing major myfoxphilly.com, but approaching city avenue to gladwynn another slow lot. thirty bypass, the heads light coming toward you. no major delays westbound. but, eastbound, you will have problems around the area of route 113. even around business route 30. thirty-one your average on the schuylkill, 1395. seeing delays headed in toward center sit, no major problems traveling mass transit. erika? >> thanksgiving just two days
