people's attention. the bill's author is david argle. the plan calls for no more school property taxes for millions of households and businesses beginning next july, except in cases of school debt. to offset this major change, argle's plan raises the personal income tax rate nearly 1.5% and increases state sales tax on many items. there is criticism from some in harrisburg that this plan is a die versionary tactic trying to steer attention from a bigger budget plan in the works now and we'll look more into that coming up in the next half hour. live in the digital operations center, katy zachry, "nbc 10 news." >> today a teen who killed a student crossing the road to catch a bus will find out how long he will spend behind bars. last december, 16-year-old manet was hit and killed on been salem boulevard when michael shelly ran a stop sign. shelly was convicted of

long today. in spite of bright sunshine. it's later in the week, a holiday warm-up, we'll have temperatures climbing in the 60s. but we're a long way from it this morning. 29 and still falling in reading, down to 35 in philadelphia international. parts of philadelphia have dropped below freezing. cape may at 37 degrees. look what's going on in the pocono mountains making snow. this is from blue mountain, just getting started. it is widespread with cold temperatures in the 20s this morning. in the pocono mountains. much of the rest of your area, feels like it's in the 20s. 33 right now in wrightstown, trenton at 33 dropped down to 28 degrees in pottstown. and in bucks county above freezing. with the wind it feels like the 20s. warrington at 31 degrees, doylestown now 30, and 30 degrees for quakertown and so bundle up heading out the door. don't forget your sunglasses. clouds to the north and west
producing snow showers but they will steer clear of our area. we'll stay dry and see a lot of sunshine. the temperatures will be warming, just not to the normal november levels. 42 degrees this afternoon for allentown and reading. look at the pocono mountains at 34 degrees. bright sunshine for doylestown, trenton and mount holly. you'll feel the wind at the jersey shore. that will keep cape may at 42 degrees this afternoon. up to 43 in dover, and vineland and plenty of sunshine for wilmington, drexel hill, philadelphia, but all of these readings will struggle to warm into the 40s this afternoon. change is ahead including the warming trend. i'll show you the seven-day forecast when i'm back in ten minutes. >> 5:09. sky force 10, over a swangs west deptford. >> jessica boyington is watching it. >> one of the big problems here is that it's not only affecting one side, we have lanes blocked in both directions north and southbound, they are allowing
some traffic to get through. but we had an accident, crash into the center median. vehicle fire, now there's fire police on the scene. police officers on the scene as well you can see. a big old mess out here with sky force 10 over top of that. it's on 295 affecting north and southbound in west deptford between exit 20 and 21 between woodbury and paulsboro. the best bet for now, you can take the new jersey turnpike, you can see the red behind there and i checked out some of my cameras to find the backup behind the scene. you can see that approaching in here on 295. these are cameras around 644, zoomed in on the scene. the drive times north and southbound 42 to the delaware memorial bridge only seeing a little bit of an increase at 28 minutes. the northbound lanes that are moving by still at 24. so we're not in any of the yellow or red yet according to drive time you can see once you are approaching the scene some
small backups this. more to come on this scene and more when i come back in the next ten. >> thanks. they 5 degrees outside. this morning we're following developments in a play ground shootout in new orleans. next we'll tell you what we now know about the number of victims after gun men fired off rounds into a crowd of hundreds. plus, new video from a series of overnight police raids in belgium. what officials are saying about the search for a key suspect in the paris attack.
the mayor of new orleans is now asking witnesses to come forward and speak up after 16 people were shot at a play ground. police say they were on the way to break up a large crowd at the park when the shootout started. investigators say there were two groups, one had just gathered after a neighborhood parade. no word what started the shooting and if anyone was seriously hurt. new video of raids in brussels. paris fugitive salah salaam was not among them. there is a serious and imminent threat of attack, schools and subways are shut down. >> david cameron says he will seek parliamentary approval this week for britain to join u.s.-led air strikes against islamic state extremists in syria. cameron is in paris now, he met
with french president francois hollande. both calling for greater effort to share intelligence to stop extremists. >> we have new video thoughing that rescue operation at the bataclan. the video captures some of the drama and the horror of the massacre at the theater. you can see a close-up view of police right before they went in and some of the hostages escaping. in the meantime, members of the band eagles of det death metal playing that night are speaking publicly for the first time. >> several people hid in our dressing room and the killers were able to get in and killed everyone of them except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket. >> they got in your dressing room. >> yes. people were playing dead. they were so scared of great reason why so many were killed is so many people wouldn't leave their friends. >> 89 people were killed at the concert hall. >> french police release add picture of another man believed involved in the terror in paris.
he is one of three suicide bombers who died in the attacks outside the national stadium where a game was being played. police want anyone with information about him to come forward. >> the new york police commissioner says the city is well prepared in the wake of this month's deadly terror attacks in paris. yesterday hundreds of emergency responders simulated a subway terror attack. we're days ahead of the macy's thanksgiving day parade. the long planned drill at a manhattan station got a last minute update in the wake of the paris attacks. they added a simulation where the attacker was wearing a suicide vest. >> now breaking traffic news at 5:16. >> jessica boyington, give us an update. >> so again, we have sky force 10 over top of this scene. this is what's going on north and southbound lanes of 295 being affected by this accident scene. we did have a vehicle in the center median here that was on
fire a few moments ago. they put the fire out obviously and it was mainly affecting the southbound side where the accident occurred. now it's spread over to northbound where there are lanes blocked as well. some huge backups behind that. this is in west deptford, 295 north and southbound between exit 20 and 21 between woodbury and paulsboro. the best bet for an alternate is not take 295. take the new jersey turnpike, it is pretty much parallel to the scene. multiple closures and the red backing up. i wanted to check with the drive times. you can see they are actually letting cars through. this is around 644. 32 minutes southbound from 42, the delaware memorial bridge so not adding a huge amount of drive to your -- time to your drive this morning. 32 minutes as opposed to the normal 24. northbound between delaware memorial bridge and 42 right now
so not a humongous backup. take the new jersey turnpike. i'll have more when i come back in the next ten. 18 minutes after 5:00. you might need extra time to find the winter coat. it is cold outside. the wind is blowing. making it feel colder. we have clear skies, we'll see a lot of sunshine today but it's not going to be a typical late november day. 35 degrees right now. 16 degrees colder than yesterday at this time. with winds blowing out of the northwest at 14 miles an hour. feels like it is below freezing in the city. completely dry at the shore. sunny skies this, too, but it's going to be chilly at the shore and for the rest of the area. today looks like the coldest day of the week but not necessarily the coldest morning. that is yet to come. 20s right now in reading and
lancaster. look at mount pocono at 24 degrees. pottstown is 28 degrees and the temperatures keep coming down in delaware and south jersey. 32 at the freezing mark for wilmington. and with the wind blowing, 12 the wind chill in the poconos, feel likes 20 degrees now in pottstown. and 23 degrees in wilmington. so stand by and bundle up. you'll need your sunglasses. you don't have to worry, just isolated snow showers, not going to be reaching us, not today. sunny skies, a chilly wind, 40s this afternoon. that's 10 degrees below normal for late november. northwest winds to 20 miles an hour, those died down tonight which means tomorrow morning will likely be colder. that's the coldest morning of the weechblth 50 in the afternoon. with sunshine. nice and bright for tuesday and plenty of sunshine wednesday too. so the warming trend continues though not a lot warmer and another cold morning wednesday. we'll feel the warm-up on
schedule for thanksgiving day. 63 degrees, thursday and even warmer on friday up to 65. but that's where the warming trend ends. showers roll through saturday, rain showers, 52 after morning low not much cooler, 50 degrees. colder air arrives for sunday. 33 in the morning, 48 sunday afternoon. >> you need your coat. cyber monday sales moving to sunday night at walmart. walmart will launch 2,000 online only specials at 8:00 p.m. on sunday. it's part of cyber week which runs from saturday through december 4th. >> don't forget black friday if you are heading out to the stores you need a plan to take advantage of the deals. and discounts that are out there. all this week we're helping you put that plan into motion. first off it helps you shop around. not just store to store but online and by using store apps. secondly, black friday is no longer a one-day event.
many times online sales last through the entire holiday weekend and also stores are expanding the types of merchandise they have. you'll have deals on everything from electronics to pajamas. here's what you can do to take advantage of the deals in the store and online. download the store apps so you have all of the information you need right at your finger tips. you should subscribe to e-mail, coupons and sale notices and look for deals that pop up on social media. >> up next, paying for your presents. why atm could be the key to staying on budget. plus, crossing the finish line in philadelphia. we'll look back on this weekend's marathon and the reason for running.
>> many shoppers are leaving credit cards in their wallets this season. let's find out more with the business news. good morning. >> good monday morning to you. many holiday shoppers will make a stop at the atm before hitting the stores. a survey finds 39% will use cash to pay for most items this year, up slightly from last year. that's followed by debit cards, credit cards and checks and half say they will shop with debit cards and a third use cash.
the preference for cash may show that shoppers don't want to overspend. on wall street the markets look to build in holiday cheer but futures are lower, stocks coming off their best week of the year as measured by the s&p 500 index on growing confidence that the fed will raise interest rates next month. look for data on home sale, the dow rising on friday to 17824. the nasdaq up to 5105. back over to you. >> landon dowdy, thanks. 35 degrees, 5:25. it is a cold morning. and the wind is blowing to make it feel even colder. that's a steady wind with us through the day. that's the view from lincoln financial field where the eagles didn't generate much excitement among fans but they did get to generate electricity with the wind. that's happening again today.
