right now, the steadier rain is in cape may, south jersey, southern delaware, atlantic city, even millville getting rain. farther north and west, there's cloud cover overhead. those clouds will break for sunshine this afternoon. we're tracking rain this morning, and then we're going to see the winds pick up. 36 in the lehigh valley, 43 in some suburbs. you'll have to grab a jacket if you're in the lehigh valley or suburbs, an umbrella for south jersey and delaware. i'm not alone here. i know you have a long time before you get here. our newest member of the nbc10 team is dray clark. >> reporter: i'm here bright and early. i'm excited to be here in chester county with you, bill. we have exciting things planned, exciting places, unique places to show what makes chester so special. also i went to college in

into the 70s, too. a seven-minute trip but no problems in either direction. today is one of the busiest travel days which means the airport will be packed. >> indeed, more people are flying this year. from check-in and departure, you need to be prepared. matt delucia joins us live from philadelphia national airport. what should passengers expect today? >> reporter: now would be a good time to get to the airport. it's not too busy at the moment. the tsa is expecting this week to possibly break the record for the number of people flying and going through those checkpoints. right here at philadelphia international, it is very, very light in terms of the traffic here. not too many people at the ticket counters. but it's still early on. more than 24 million people are estimated to be coming through airports nationwide. that's the estimate by tsa. what does that mean for you? possibly longer lines at the check-in and also security. the tsa says it's going to be increasing staffing at the
checkpoints and will have more bomb-sniffing dogs. and the tsa says to prepare ahead of time. know what you can and cannot bring, for instance. you can carry on solid foods, but no foods with liquids in them. again, no liquids there. so the folks here at philadelphia national airport recommend you get here two hours before your flight if you're flying in the u.s., three hours for international. next hour i'll break down the new security procedures that could have you waiting in longer lines. for now live at philly international, matt delucia, nbc10 news. >> thank you. ed to will be another busy one on the roads, as well. officials on the pennsylvania turnpike expect the heaviest traffic between 7:00 this morning and 8:00 tonight. turnpike officials expect the traffic on sunday from noon to 8:00 to be heavy, as well. katy zachry will join us at 4:30 with a closer look at holiday travel on the roads. if you're hitting the road this thanksgiving, here's a look at what you will spend to fill your tank. gas prices in our area are up
more than 30 cents from thanksgiving week last year. according to aaa, in the philadelphia metro area, regular gas will cost you $2.75 a gallon. in northern delaware, $2.43. in south jersey, $2.50 a gallon. we have continuing coverage of the holiday travel rush on air and on line. turn to the nbc10 app to get instant weather and traffic alerts sent straight to your phone. in other news, new from overnight, a man is safe after fire crews rescued him from the roof of his burning home in west philadelphia. the fire broke out before midnight on north holly. crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames. they quickly got the smoke and flames under control. the man was not seriously hurt. investigators confirm they've found the remains of two victims from the deadly fire at the senior center in west chester. the investigators will be back looking for two unaccounted for today. authorities have not identified the remains they found. on monday the chester county
district attorney said four residents were unaccounted for including a husband and wife. the fire broke out late thursday night. a man who lives near the fire scene talked about how he and his neighbors rushed in to help. >> once you got kind of assigned to a resident, you stayed with them. someone literally stayed with that person to make sure they were warm, safe, talked to them to make sure they weren't anxious. >> investigators are still looking for the cause of the fire and say they plan to remain on the scene throughout the thanksgiving holiday. fbi agents say they have strong reason to believe that congressman bob grady paid an opponent to quit running against him. investigators say there's also evidence that others within the campaign knowingly attempted to skirt campaign finance rules. from newly unsealed court documents, we know the fbi got a warrant to see emails tied to brady's 2012 primary campaign against judge jimmy moore. the fbi says brady's campaign concealed a $90,000 payment to
moore's campaign manager to get him to drop out of the race. brady's attorney says they complied with the investigation earlier this year, and there is no evidence of anything wrong in those emails. he also says his client hasn't been charged with a crime. investigators, however, believe there's probable cause that brady and others committed conspiracy, wire fraud, and violated limits on campaign contributions. people in a gloucester county community are fighting to keep their police force. nbc10 was at gateway regional high school for last night's woodbury heights council meeting. the former police chief tells us the community recently received two proposals from neighboring departments to take over policing duties. people who live in woodbury heights say they fear losing their own police force will mean less protection. >> i don't care where you come from, the people in that town, borou borough, township, they want
their own police. >> woodbury heights officials say they will review the proposals and put the -- and the input from the community before making any decision. the countdown to thanksgiving is nearly over. maybe tomorrow you'll run out for one last item. >> for those less fortunate, the community is stepping up to make sure they're not forgotten. the mann organizations will deliver pies for the pie in the sky event. the annual fundraiser raises hundred of thousands of dollars that goes toward hot meals for people battling life-threatening illnesses like cancer or aids. in south jersey, players from the flyers and their staff will help the camden neighborhood center get ready for their thanksgiving dinner. they'll handle everything from stocking the kitchen and
pantries to setting the tables. they plan to serve more than 400 meals tomorrow. today in new york, crews will get the famous floats ready for the macy's thanksgiving day parade. tens of thousands will be watching the balloons being inflated. police will screen visitors. no large backpacks, chairs, or umbrellas will be allowed. i don't think anybody from here is going there. we don't need to tell you that. you can watch the parade tomorrow here on nbc10. yeah. boy, it's got to be ten degrees warmer now than it was this time yesterday. >> i think so. krystal klei has that. definitely warmer, mild, ahead of a cold front that's going to be passing through the rest of the morning. then things will cool down later in the day. the cold front is moving close to us as we speak. cold air will filter in behind it which is why tomorrow will
feel more so the impacts of the cold front. let's talk about conditions outside. rain, moisture from the south, a cold front pushing from the east -- west, rather, and the two are giving us just showers out there over our delaware beaches. clipping kent county, and then you see brushing up the jersey shore as well as parts of south jersey. notice from half of south jersey to philly and north, it's just clouds now. could you see a spotty shower this morning? absolutely. as this continues to move forward. it's only going to last through the morning hours. traveling farther to the west today, you may run into during the morning hours a rain/snow mix over western pennsylvania then up into parts of new york, as well. it's starting to exit areas like buffalo. by 8:30 a.m., this is weakening. up north, you could run into snow in parts of new york. you'll run into rain in new york, boston, anywhere up into new england. most of this is out of here, out of parts of the viewing area by around 11:30.
notice the snow dying down, as well. that could mean for slick roadways. take it slow if you're driving north or west. and then as we go through rest of the day, a fairly dry picture. again to recap, a.m. flakes north and west, parts of pennsylvania. a.m. rain, boston to d.c. that line downward. otherwise, just going to be a cool day. wear the jacket. breezy, as well. hold tight to the wheel. will be a cold night. prep that once you're to grandma's house it will be chilly this evening. 4:10. let's talk about the roads because a lot of people will be going to work today. a lot of people will be hitting the roads for the holiday. >> jessica boyington is keeping an eye on that for you this morning. what are you seeing? >> i'm watching my boulevard camera near the schuylkill expressway now. some construction to play with here moving from the schuylkill westbound. this is the camera sitting on the boulevard. a second ago we were focused on a disabled vehicle that was at the bottom of the ramp to the schuylkill expressway. that cleared, and now we're watching the construction. if you pass this and are trying to get on the schuylkill and
head down to the cityline avenue area, that's where this mess is. we're starting to see a delay behind it. they keep moving the camera so i can't focus on where it is. now we're looking at construction work. cars are slow moving by the scene into the side. i'll end with the crash, upper dublin, highland avenue, and ft. washington avenue. >> thank you. strength and courage. a boy hurt in a school bus crash faces challenges. >> i wish i could take away his pain. >> what we're learning about the next step in his road to recovery. hacking uber. a breach they hid for more than a year. what the thieves got away with, and how it could impact you. and we're on the road again. this morning in chester county to look at the community's rich history in steel-making and current efforts to bring new buildings and businesses to town.

even on the highway. we have many locations on our travel corridors to be here with you. >> that's one thing about it, you're never that far from a wawa. >> no, very close. >> i think i passed 15 on the way over here today. >> we also will have free air. if you want to check your tires, we'll be free at wawa. we'll never charge you for that. >> i have to tell you how much i appreciate. this time of year, you get the colder air and the snap like this, the pressure does vary a lot. if you haven't checked your tires lately, it's time to -- i filled up the tires. they were way off. i had to search for the free air. wawa is the place. >> we got it, and it's free. we'll have competitive prices, that's an important part of our fuel brand. we have the supplies that you need. windshield wiper fluid, oils. we also have chargers to keep your phones charged over the weekend, as well. >> really? >> yeah. >> a pit stop? >> we've got everything you need for your car and for you. >> thank you for being here. thanks for allowing us to come out. thanks for fueling me up this morning with some hot coffee.
