morning. just a chance. right now we are clear and cold. this is not the arctic blast coming our way later this week. it's just in the 30s because it is november, and with clear skies, dry air and light wind, we can really see the temperatures drop, and that's what we've got this morning. you see on the horizon there are a few clouds, but mainly, it is going to be a sunny day today. and after a cold start this morning, the temperatures will be climbing. 60s are on the way for today and again tomorrow and possibly again on wednesday. it's late in the week that we'll get that cold blast of air, and it will come with some showers to start with on friday morning. at least the chance. right now, 31 degrees in allentown, 31 in atlantic city at the airport, and northeast philadelphia's 35 degrees. there's plenty of cold air to go around. with sunny skies, we'll see plenty of a warm-up today. it's going to be a quick warm-up, too, into the 60s this afternoon. we're running a lot colder than yesterday morning, eight degrees colder at philadelphia international, 14 degrees colder compared to yesterday at this time in atlantic city.

6:10 am
merger. the center lane is blocked. just came into our system a few minutes ago. so, it's still out there. there's also a car fire in plymouth township, right at germantown pike and launfall road. so, crews are out there trying to clean that up and move it away from the roadway, but that's going to tie things up likely for you. and also, unfortunately, on 476 on the blue route southbound, right near baltimore pike, you can see there are some emergency vehicles out here. there wasn't an accident. it's just a disabled vehicle that they've moved over to the shoulder and they're just alerting traffic by all of these lights. it's not tying things up. it's just slowing traffic on 476 that's going around that. when i see you in a bit, we'll take a look at 76, the vine street expressway and your roads in new jersey and delaware. >> all right, katy. speaking of driving, going down, we've been spoiled recently by the drop in gas prices, and now aaa is making a significant prediction for prices for the holiday travel season. also, new video shows the moments just before and right after 19 firefighters were killed in an arizona wildfire.

the second enrollment begins this weekend for the health insurance marketplace. after an overhaul and upgrade to, enrolling is expected to be easier for newcomers compared to last year. unfortunately, possible computer woes may be lurking for those renewing their policies under the affordable care act, as that hasn't yet been tested. open enrollment begins on november 15th. flight attendants at american airlines have rejected a five-year contract affecting tens of thousands of workers. it now forces the airline and its union for cabin crew workers into binding arbitration, which also complicates the integration of american airlines and us airways. the two merged last year to form the world's biggest airline operator. the holiday season is expected to bring even lower gas prices than we're seeing right now. aaa is predicting prices could drop another 5 to 15 cents in the next few weeks, which could make for the cheapest thanksgiving gas we've had in five years or so. right now in the philadelphia metro area, the savage $3.02.
6:16 am
in south jersey, it's $2.71, and in delaware, $2.83. aaa says pump prices usually drop in the autumn season due to decreased demand, but we're also seeing cheaper prices because global oil prices have declined manager than anticipated. >> aaa expects that gas prices will remain relatively low throughout the winter. u.s. gas supplies far exceed the demand that we have this time of year, so that's definitely good news. >> and aaa says more affordable gas prices should be a big help this holiday season for travelers and shoppers who do spend a lot of time on the road. speaking of the roads, if you're getting ready to head out, let's check the roads and see where your delays might be. >> here's katy zachry with everything you need to know. >> i know, i'm so anxious to tell you about the delay. sorry, vai. there are delays to tell you about. the good news is, 476 right near baltimore pike, a little while ago there was a disabled vehicle that was causing drivers to tap the brakes in the southbound lane. that has since cleared.
6:17 am
and you can check out drive times on 476 between 95 and 76 in both directions, about 17-18 minutes. so, that's a great drive there. unfortunately, there is a crash on the northeast extension on the northbound side, right past 276 with the turnpike merger. it's in the center lane. that is blocked. crews are trying to clear that from the center lane roadway. there is a car fire on busy germantown pike at this time and launfall road. so, crews are again, trying to clean that up so it won't affect traffic. i just checked our 95 cameras and volume is building at cottman, girard and allegheny. coming up in a bit, i'll have the drive times from 95 from woodhaven to the vine. it's slowing up out there. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> if you're hitting the road to north dakota, this is a wintry looking scene. they are getting snow and they are not alone. it's part of a blast of cold air

6:32 am
say these are really nice people that are kind of like missionaries at a local church. been here for about a year, maybe a little bit less, and they are expected to leave not too long after that, maybe another year or so, so, they're not long-term residents, but doing kind of missionary work. fire officials say this case of carbon monoxide poisoning could have been fatal, if not for a 911 call. they say the carbon monoxide level inside this house on hidden hollow lane was three times the average, so intense, it overwhelmed the carbon monoxide detector and sickened the people living inside, including a small girl who opened the door for police. >> she answered the door and she passed out. and they went in and started investigating. there was carbon monoxide. and when i came outside, they said don't come too close. >> reporter: fire officials say it appears the leak is in the heating system down in the basement. they had been venting the property for the better part of the early-morning hours and have completed that.

the carbon monoxide has dissipated. we're going to continue to try to get an update on conditions before the end of the broadcast and bring that you. live in sicklerville, camden county, jesse gary, nbc 10 news. and we're following new information in a disturbing case out of chester county. the coatesville area school district is now investigating to see if a 6-year-old abuse victim was absent from school. gary fellenbaum and jillian tait are accused of systemically torturing her two sons. 3-year-old scotty mcmillan died. his 6-year-old brother is now in protective custody. according to "the daily local news," police say the 6-year-old was absent from school for about two weeks leading up to his brother's death. the school district would not confirm that but says it is conducting an internal investigation. happening today, camden's school superintendent is talking about how to improve student performance in the district after tests show students are not ready for college or a career. nbc 10's matt delucia is live in camden. matt, what do parents have to say about the state of camden
6:34 am
schools, knowing these test results? >> reporter: well, there are mixed opinions, tracy, but most agree that more needs to be done. what? that is the big question. it has been for quite a while. students in camden late last year took a standardized test, and the results came back just a couple weeks ago, and they're not very good. when it comes to english, only one in five students here is considered proficient, and three out of ten are proficient in math. that is well below the state average when you compare it, in which three out of four are considered proficient in math. now, in my conversation with the superintendent, he tells me it's not just about money. >> camden has never been short on funding. and if you look at the last four or five years, we've out-spent the rest of the state of new jersey. this past year, for every student, we spent $27,000, and that compares to an average of about $15,000 in the rest of the state. so, we are not short on resources. we just need to rethink how we're investing our resources.
6:35 am
>> reporter: the superintendent says only 8% of camden residents have a college diploma and he wants to change that. parents, meanwhile, say they want to see results now for and from their kids. >> just more parents being involved with their students. i think that's really important, because a lot of parents are not involved in their kids with school. >> i don't see want to see my kids out here doing nothing wrong. i want them to get an education and go on in life like they need to. >> reporter: and so, later this morning, the superintendent will be here at catto elementary school to kick off a two-week school-by-school plan. he's going to go to each school talking with families. there's going to be a tour throughout the 26 schools that he oversees, talking about how to get this district back on the right track. so, we will follow this. for now, we're live in camden. i'm matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> all right, matt. meantime, critics of pennsylvania's public schools are taking their complaints to court. today, six school districts will join parents and the naacp to announce legal action against
