6:16 am
of course as we've been talking about, we're at about 75% to 80% of the actual eclipse that we'll be able to see. but at the moment the way it looks that it will pan out, there's a system that's likely to be forming over the midwest back to the central plains but it won't be here yet. so i expect at this point that monday is going to stay clear, for the most part pretty good visibility for us. make sure if you don't have your eclipse glasses, you go out and find a pair. you can't see squat outside. if i didn't tell you where we were, you would have no clue. it's completely skewed. another view if you didn't have the label you would never know it. so poor and dense with that visibility. so just keep that in mind. fog lights are a requirement in a lot of the countryside moving forward we're going to keep it pretty toasty here the next couple of days.
6:17 am
more storms arriving on friday. >> all right katie thank you so much. speaking of that fog take a look outside. new jersey definitely a lot of fog out here. 42 at the ac expressway. turn on those fog lights we're going to need them today as we're already seeing some problem areas out there. volume is not an issue here as well this is also in new jersey. 295 at route 168 in both directions looking okay. you can see that fog everywhere and we are going to be dealing with, it's going to be a little bit of a storm for us on this morning commute. the good news is congestion levels so far pretty good. dense fog but overall we're still traveling around okay there. we did have an accident in delaware that has now since been cleared so we're looking good. and we looked just past here around 95 and those surrounding areas and you can see all green. ac expressway construction crews still out there.

6:32 am
counties outside the philly and out towards the shore points. it is a thick and dense fog. but the closer you get to the urban corridor, it gets a little bit more patchy. you've got to be careful. this could come up on you quickly. the sun is obviously up at this point but i don't think it's going to immediately at the drop of a hat disappear. the fog, that is. we need a little bit of time here, the advisory is posted until 8:00 a.m. for pretty much all of us but that fog is patchy depending where you are. for the most part at its worst it's a half a mile or under. we're currently in the upper 60s, low 70s across south jersey, 72 in dover and as the day progresses we're going to heat up easily as soon as this fog lifts out of here region wide you've got fantastic pool weather with full sunshine, a little bit of humidity and certainly the heat.
6:33 am
meisha, indication right now is that the eclipse viewing weather will be clear. >> that is great news. a lot of people are looking forward to that. thank you so much katie. we're talking about fog this morning and there is very little escape. some places we don't have a lot of fog but for the most part we're seeing substantial backups here in jersey. this is 42 freeway northbound on creek road as you approach 295 why is backed up? because we have a collapsed sewer grade blocking the right lane. they're pretty substantial, heads up if you have to head out to 42 and if you cannot give yourself a couple of extra minutes at home before walking out the door, you certainly want to add in a couple of extra minutes at your commute. i would probably add at minimum an extra 40 minutes or so and it's growing. also 95 south at cottman we were looking at this earlier we couldn't even see movement.
6:34 am
the fog is starting to i would say get a little bit better and we're still very slow on the vine. >> president trump is headed back to his golf club in somerset county, new jersey after a brief stay at manhattan's trump tower. where he held a combative news conference where he once again blamed both sides. even some republicans have done demed the remarks. former president obama has weighed in has become the most liked tweet in history. he posted this image of himself along with a quote from nelson men dell la. the tweet has been liked almost 3 million times. >> overnight crews in t baltimore began tearing down
6:35 am
four remaining confederate statues. t other cities are considering a similar move after last weekend's violence in charlottesville but people who want the monuments to stay say that statues are pieces of history that should remain visible. >> reporter: a confederate statute may soon be bound for the history bin if a recent petition succeeds. >> i think it's about time it should come down. 109 years is long enough. >> reporter: just over 10 miles away is a giant state-owned carving of confederate icons. georgia democratic gubernatorial candidate wants it gone. >> it is 2017 and now is the sometime for us to have a conversation about removing the last vestiges of that type of
6:36 am
hatred. >> reporter: that's the same sentiment that led a campaign. tony was a defender of slavery. >> it belongs in a museum. >> reporter: and houston mayor is also considering removing his city's confederate statue. >> i do think it's important for us to review our inventory and to make the most appropriate decision. >> reporter: but some say removing these items won't change attitudes in the country. >> it's history, that's all it is. if we talk about racism, racism isn't a symbol. it's a person. >> i don't think we should try to hide our history. we ought to try to teach it and make people understand we've learned to overcome a lot of mistakes. >> the unrest down south has sparked new debate over the statue of the late frank rizzo right here in philly a large
6:37 am
sign with a message "shame on president trump" that's taped to the statue. eggs were also thrown at it. people who want the statue taken down say rizzo treated the african-american community unfairly. >> i never remember my dad being anything but a fair person. if you broke the law, no matter what color you were, he made sure that philadelphia was protected. >> it's about healing our own sins, about confronting our own path and moving forward. >> supporters set up a petition to keep the statue in place. it already has more than 7,000 signatures. rizzo served two terms as mayor between 1972 and 1980. meanwhile a spokeswoman for philadelphia mayor jim kenney released a statement saying we think now is a good time to have
6:38 am
that conversation about the statue's future. we need to figure out the proper forum in a serious, structure way but now is the right time. >> authorities are offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an attempted arson suspect. he was caught on surveillance video leaving the underground garage of the police department's 12th district. he poured flammable liquid but was unsuccessful lighting it. >> you've got multiple people in that building doing work throughout the night. an underground fire could have had devastating results. at this point our fire department union, the philadelphia fraternal order of police and the atf have all put up $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual. >> now police aren't sure if the suspect is homeless. some residents in that area say they're working to install more surveillance cameras.
6:39 am
>> an update now police say the man you see here in that light blue shirt is the same man caught on video urinating on a synagogue. he surrendered to police last night. video showed the man sunday morning outside the congregation. police have not released the suspect's name. >> if you thought amazon prime had fast delivery, just wait to hear what amazon is doing for its customers. >> plus all the talk about the solar eclipse. we wondered how would it impact the animals at the zoo. find out how we can expect them to react. >> and a philly classic is making a comeback. see how one local businessman wants to bring horn and harder back to life. >> this morning on the 40th anniversary of his death, we are remembering elvis presley.
6:40 am
see how his fans are honoring the king of rock and roll at graceland next.
6:41 am
6:42 am
6:43 am
welcome back. a lot of people are hitting the road. they'll be looking for the best seats to watch the solar eclipse. >> and that means higher gas prices. those increases will happen along the eclipse's path of totality. those are the areas where the moon will completely cover the sun. the path runs from the northeast to the southwest and those are the areas where people will flock to come monday. idaho and utah have already seen big gas prices in the last week. meantime wildlife experts at the philadelphia zoo will be watching the eclipse and the animals there. zoo keepers say animal behavior may change depending how dark it gets and if the temperature drops. nocturnal animals may start to wake up and start moving while animals sleep at night may start getting ready for bed. >> animals are very attentive to their environment. and primates and other animals
6:44 am
are pretty smart so i can imagine them being interested in something that is different. they'll recognize it as this is not something part of our normal experience. >> a team of researchers actually observed animals during a different type of eclipse back in 1984. some cham panzes climbed to the top of their enclosures. the philadelphia zoo will be open on monday so you can watch the animals during the eclipse. >> our eclipse coverage continues later today on eyewitness news with advice for pet owners. should you walk your dog during the eclipse or maybe keep them inside. how to keep our furry friends safe during the eclipse. >> you already have your eclipse glasses? >> indeed i do. i have a stack something like 30 of them sitting in the weather office to pass around the neighborhood. so it's cool. we've got our special government-approved cbs3 solar eclipse glasses that we will be
6:45 am
passing out around the community all week long, stick with us for the details on where we'll be doing that. for now, even minus the eclipse glasses, the visibility is really poor anyway so that is also thanks to mother nature who is settling this very large shroud of fog around the area. it's patchier the closer you get to the urban areas. but a place like the countryside for example and down towards the shore, we've got really dense fog and there are a ton of pictures that came in this morning from the eyewitness weather watchers. in williams town the visibility may not be as poor as we've seen in other places but that's going to reduce your visibility traveling by car. meanwhile around the neighborhood from phil, he is out in the chestnut hill area, yes the low-lying cloud cover is there. another one from ed conner, a beautiful view of a spider web and also out in west chester
6:46 am
finding the fog. this is a picture from high above. very quickly we go to one more observation. 66 is the value coming in from helen this morning who is also reporting. beautiful new profile picture she mentioned she wants to see the sun as do we all. here's gert still a category 1 hurricane, still expected to stay out to sea as it makes a right-hand turn it might even strengthen as it moves away but let's talk about the dew points back here on dry land. it's really going to be muggy, especially come friday. we're talking insuffer rabl humidity levels as more showers and storms work their way in. friday is a mess of a day. soupy, steamy, showery, stormy and then it starts to clear out. the weekend is still pretty warm, upper 80s, but at least we're getting the benefit of sunshine all weekend long and for now eclipse day does look clear. >> all right. that's what i think everyone
6:47 am
wants to know right now. speaking of things that are not clear this morning because of all the fog we've been talking about all morning long, yes it is going to slow you down. these slowdowns are because of a collapsed sewer grade. you will have to maneuver around this and it is going to be slow moving. give yourself 40, 45 minutes there. schuykill after you come off the boulevard bumper-to-bumper conditions, i would factor in extra time as well. we have a disabled vehicle here as well pulled up to the far right shoulder. 95 south to the betsy ross bridge and when they slipped that camera around, give yourself extra time here as well. that seems to be the theme. and we have an accident out there as well in conshohocken. when you look around we're
6:48 am
starting to see some yellow to let you know you're traveling a little less than posted speed but we can expect that at this hour. >> this morning elvis presley fans were at graceland paying homage to the king of rock and roll. >> elvis's daughter greeted thousands of fans last night. former body guards remembers how elvis made every show unique. >> there were only two songs set. the first one to get him on stage and the last one when he was telling me he's ready to go home. he would do anything in between, all for his fans. >> for first time in nearly four decades, fans did have to pay a $30 fee to participate in the vigil. fans were allowed to watch from across the street free acharge. >> back here at home, it's a philly classic that's making a comeback and to do it the brand
6:49 am
is going back to the basic. >> we're talking about horn and hardarg. the business revolutioned the business. one local family hopes it will be the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning. >> reporter: a familiar name with a whole new look. but to understand this coffee's inspiration, you have to go way back. in fact, the original is gone. here at 8th and chestnut, this is all that remains. simply a sign of a bygone era. it's the memories that are still fresh. >> i used to go with my grandmother. >> probably the only restaurant i knew until i was a teenager was the automat because that's where we went. >> reporter: founded in 1888 by philly natives, the restaurant used coin operated glass and
6:50 am
chrome vending machines to dispense food and drink. the technology revolutionized the food industry. >> it really was a precursor to fast food, if you will. it was inexpensive, high quality in a very clean, quality environment. >> the automat became the place to see and be seen. by the early 1950s there were dozens of auto mats in philly. they became even more popular in new york with close to 150 restaurants between the two cities. today you can still find some of the original signs and other memorabilia at the philadelphia history museum. and on this menu in the upper right-hand corner, what would become known as the business's specialty. >> they gained their reputation through the coffee. >> after 20 minutes if there was any coffee left they dumped it. >> not only was it fresh, h and h introduced the first fresh

6:52 am
never. >> i think it's so interesting that it's a classic brand, a classic taste, but now they have k cups so it's a new take on it. >> they revolutionized the business back then and now they're catching up with the 21st century technology. >> to find out about the coffee and where to buy it, log on to our website. >> there's lot coming up on cbs this morning. >> gale, always good to see you. >> how do you know there's a lot coming up today? you are absolutely right today. we have a lot of news to talk about. >> reporter: i had the fallout after president trump doubles down on his original comments blaming both sides. we'll talk with john dickerson about how this impacts his presidency. and the afl-cio joins us why he pulled out of the manufacturing council and boston globe spotlight reporter will be here at studio 57.
