that will but for now, let me get you out the door, live look overlooking main street in bethlehem. where there is ever so slight movement on that flag over the hotel bethlehem. not much winds to speak of. you think that's something that will change with time? as is the scene, with time, see some rain come in here. even as early as this morning, but the heaviest stuff is going to hold off until later on today, and specially toward the pm drive. bad timing for that time of day. but here it is. it is a warmfront, lifting in right now, that's where some of the scattered showers come from. but it is pretty obvious where the colds front is park right now. that's what's going to really bring in the steadier rain. what we have working for us, in terms of travel, anyway, is that we don't have to worry about any ice withing this front. there is just too much warmth associated with the leading edge of it, by the time it crosses, though, the coal air will catch up. that's when, beyond that point , we start to see the potential for some snowflakes. so this really is strictly rain producer, making a mess, certainly, of our tuesday, especially pm hours. but by the time we hit 60, i
think the radar will start to show some signs of life. >> this isn't enough to cause major travel headaches. but it will be out there. at least you won't have sun glare to work with. but you might find yourself licking -- flicking the windshield wipers as the morning progresses then the heaviest stuff comes n by this point up to five p.m. even in philly may not have anything of significance yet. but, toward the end of the evening, 9:00 p.m., or so, give or take an hour or two, that rain will come down heavily, as then it clears. so that's your cold front, now , this front is nearby into wednesday. but it should be far enough to our south that we're just left with some lingering clouds and a breeze, meantime, this isn't bad. we will not get much past this , try saying that five times false, for daytime miles in the next few days. enjoy this while you do have it. without too much wind, not much of windchill to factor in here. look at the cold that's coming currently down into single digit territory, winnipeg, baker lake, yes, cold being filed our way, meisha.
>> no fun. we do not like that. thank you so much, katie. and, big heads up if we are walking on those roadways little later, katie pointed out something to take into consideration for today. yesterday visibility with that fog, that really slowed us down. we know what rain will do. looking outside, we do have construction, schuylkill east closed. one week lane was closed, that has now since been cleared. actually looking good on the westbound side. construction crews look like they're just getting this area cleaned up right now, schuylkill westbound between the blue route and 202, that right lane was compromised, but again, it does look like they're packing up and moving out of the way nowment construction on the walt whitman bridge eastbound, two lanes block, but we're showing on the censor map all green. so still clearly traveling around at posted speeds, which hopefully i can keep it deeper into the 5:00 to 6:00 hour. construction jersey lot of it, 76 west near 295. 295 north closed at 76 until around 8:00 a.m. 295 south, ramp to 76 westbound closed, 42 north the ramp to 295 north is also

>> reporter: good morning, rahel and joe. that's right, could you get whiplash with that market yesterday. ultimately stocks finished mixed. the dow finished the day up 58 points, nazdek fell 70. so really was a back and forth , back and forth. ford revving its engine in china us auto maker plans to launch 50 new vehicles by 2025 almost a third of those will be electric models. sales in china have weakened recently, and ford is in a race to electric and hybrid vehicles to meet strict chinese production for so-called new energy vehicles. joe, rahel. >> so we got the grounds covered here, for the people taking to the skies who want to get even more bang for their buck, jet blue we hear is out with a new deal. can you tell cents the details >> reporter: that's right, the budget friendly airliner offering a chance to win one of its all you can jet passes. those passes entitle the recipient and friend to take unlimited dollars flights for a whole year. here is the catch. you have to book a non- refundable flight by december 15th, that gets you one entry, if you book a round

this is take friend our headquarters here in spring garden section of philadelphia but, overlooking the center city area there. no wet roadways yet. that's something that will absolutely change. my advice, to walk out the door with the umbrella because you'll be thank willing yourself that you've got it later in the day. specially toward the early morning russian beyond. that's when the heaviest of this batch of rain that clearly is on the march will make its arrival here. we will likely even see some showers for the morning commute. but they're not here yet. you notice few speckles starting to show up on the radar across portions of the delmarva peninsula, that starts to fill in little bit here in the next couple of hours, but again, heaviest rain, drenching rain. that will holdup before that cold front gets here. that is when we start to really see the bulk of the steady rain that we are promised here today. for now, also, pretty mild start. notice the winds barbs coming in straight on shore from the southeast. so that's really helping to surge the warmth before this cold front crosses. ample more ties to work with. also, going to see daytime high that rebounds very easily
, all the way up to 62. now, yes, that looks awesome at face value, keep in mind the breeze is picking up. rain will be developing through the day. so this isn't the prettiest day we've ever seen, granted trade off. the high of 62 will keep us having from to deal with icing potential. but that rain is regardless on the way. so, specially through the pm hours, expect the rain to be at it heaviest, and the breeze also will be quite noticable. now, by tomorrow, the rain is out of here, and the temperatures also are taking a substantial hit. by the time we hit friday night into saturday, possibility that south of philly we even see some snow showers, and that can't even rule it out sunday, meisha, sunday, we probably don't even hit 40 degrees. >> oh, wow it, will feel like a big drop specially from today. katie, thank you so much. very good morning, happy tuesday, guys. so, looking outside, lot of construction, good news the schuylkill, one of the areas even in the 4:00 hour can get kind of backed up with the closures. that's now clearing. so the schuylkill eastbound, was closed, between the vine and south street, looks like crews have now just pushed out
of your way. so looking good there. and 95 south at cottman quick peak, looking good. take that all the way into center city, big thumbs-up there. and some construction heads up crossing the bridge, walt whitman bridge, eastbound, two lanes are block because of crews showing all green right now. it will start to slow down depending on when they move out of the way. then lot of construction going on in new jersey. seventy-six west, near (295)678-9295 north closed at 76 until 8:00 a.m. 295 south, the ramp to 76 is closed. and 42 north, that ramp to 295 north is also closed. joe, back over to you. >> meisha, thank you. coming up in the negligence hour every cbs-3 "eyewitness news," a scary scene during monday night football. we've got an update on the steelers players who had to be carted off the field. >> also, following breaking news out of california where this while fire has take answer deadly turn. trang do has the latest. >> then we have new update on the political future of representative john conyers we're back at the top of the hour.
