welcome back of the first alert meteorologist krystal klei here. this is a live view from center city. it's hard to see anything because of the low clouds and fairly dense fog. we've got warm, moist air surging in. we have a lot of moisture from yesterday. so you're going to get very foggy conditions for the morning. even in the afternoon, i think you'll have lingering fog, low clouds issues with visibility. because this thing is huge. i mean, we're going from philadelphia all the way down to the gulf coast before you see the end of this storm system. what's happening is a warm front is trying to move into place today. that's going to help trigger more showers that are heavier in nature. it's also going to potentially trigger a few spot thunderstorms even as we get into the later parts of the day. we've got that flood watch in place. this is from lehigh valley,

town. everything else was really expensive or overcrowded. this always felt like home. >> the sale started yesterday and wraps up today from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. meteorologist krystal klei here. we're starting with a live camera view over delaware. you can definitely tell there's a bit of a haze in the camera view. because of low-hanging clouds and we also have fog in place. actually, i should say three things. also rain coming down which limits visibility as well. you mix this together, this is not a great driving day. if you can stay indoors, that's the best option. look at doppler radar, we've got these areas of yellow, these are pockets of the heavier rain moving in. some of the worst rain is still falling over parts of maryland moving our direction. i do expect it will get here over the next couple of hours. and that area of heavy rain that mostly sat about here overnight is starting to move northward,
6:20 am
which means, yeah, the corridor, a good portion of the viewers, this is going to be during the morning hours when you get the heavier rain. let's look at the pockets of heavy rain starting to fall. from wilmington, you see that. westchester to coatsville, this isn't the heaviest stuff. it was worse overnight. nonetheless, pockets of heavy rain. it gets worse into kent county here. smyrna to dover to river view to milford. unfortunately, this is an area where amounts between 1 and 2 inches have fallen. i looked in the dover area for the official reports, it looks like it's under 2 inches now. these are high amounts, certainly can trigger flooding. the good news is that areas in southern half of our viewing zone have higher flood guidance. meaning more rain needs to fall in a shorter amount of time for flooding to occur. not that much we need for flooding to occur. it's better it's falling in these zones so far. farther along into new jersey, you see that we've got another pocket of heavy rain to the
6:21 am
north out of atlantic county and this is up near ship bottom beach haven as well. mercer county, trenton, hasn't seen heavy rain. it's weakened into central parts of new jersey. let's look forward to the hour by hour model. tighten to our neck of the woods, the heavier rain scatters northwa northward. watch the temperatures, too. what's going to happen, a worm front slowly creeping across our zone is going to start really making its way through. that's going to bump these temperatures up. through 10:00 a.m., still pockets of heavy rain, really aligning with the i-95 corridor. things will weaken a tad as we get between noon and 1:00 p.m. i believe. we'll still have a light to steady rain. scattered pockets of heavier rain and an isolated thunderstorm is possible through 4:00 p.m. everything starts to weaken overnight. 8:00 at night, light rain showers. but it does not look like we'll have anything as impressive as we are going to have through the morning hours. look at this trend in temperatures. from 20s in new york to nearly
6:22 am
70 degrees in norfolk. we're in the middle of this. the warm air saah helping the boundary that fires off the heavier area of rain. that's what the issue is. look at the temperatures for highs today. 62 in philly. 63 in delaware. the rest of the day a washout. coming up, sweet payoff. a boston bakery makes good after losing a super bowl bet that benefits schools. market uncertainty. a dramatic plunge in the south market rattles wall street and main street. is your money safe? >> people nearing retirement, you need to be more concerned about it. people in retirement or people withdraw money for college education. plus, nfl hall of famer ray didinger and former eagle barrett brooks to discuss what's next for the birds, including quarterback nick foles. >> there's a lot of things that can really help him out if nick foles is not an eagle.

welcome back. krystal klei here. we're looking over the delaware river. what you're trying to see is the city skyline. you can't see anything but a few lights glowing because we have low clouds and very dense fog in place across the region. the two combined making it very hard to see anything. take a look at the visibility on the board here. it's improved in areas south. that's because the heaviest rain has weakened a tad. 2.5 miles in millville. only a half inch in northeast philadelphia. you can still drive in half-mile
6:42 am
visibility but it's much more difficult. so take it slow this morning. if you can wait, the fog won't be as dense in the next several hours. on radar and satellite, look how big this is. rain is steadily falling over our region. this extends all the way down to the gulf coast. this is a very, very large system. it's going to provide us with rain for the rest of the day. as a result of that, considering that we've already seen rain total amounts between half an inch and 2 inches in our region, we're under a flood watch for the entire area. berks county down to the jersey shore and extending into kent county. we've seen reports of 2 inches there. around half an inch to an inch more may fall today. look at philadelphia, reporting rain currently. at 49 degrees. winds may pick up in the afternoon to gusts 25 to 30 miles per hour. the focus, though, is going to be the periods of heavy rain through lunchtime. steady rain into the afternoon. and temperatures in the

6:45 am
president trump is striking a sympathetic tone for two white house aides who resigned amid
6:46 am
allegations of domestic abuse. they were made by the ex-wives of senior aide rob porter and steve writer david sorensen. both men denied the allegations. yesterday the president took sides on twitter. he posted. people's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. there is no recovery for someone falsely accused. another state is joining the legal battle wage against the trump administration. we're learning new jersey is joining more than a dozen states suing the administration. the issues range from immigration to taxes. newly sworn-in democratic governor of new jersey's phil murphy ran on a campaign promise to "resist president trump" at every turn. that's the lead topic on "meet the press" this morning. chuck todd and his guests, they will be here on nbc 10. talk about weather this morning. just a mess outside. rain started yesterday well into
6:47 am
today and foggy. just not a good day to be on the roads. >> you can see it on this picture, broad street and center city. a little bit of a mess heading out the door. krystal klei is tracking the conditions for us. >> not just because this is an extended period of time that we're seeing rain. but that we're getting pockets of heavy rain. on the roadways, there will be ponding that makes it slick or tricky to drive. in some spots, the ground is saturated, meaning flooding can starts to occur. on doppler radar, what we see is rare yas of very heavy rain that are starting to exit maryland and enter parts of delaware, chester county and soon enough parts of new jersey into philadelphia. let's take a closer look at the areas seeing the heaviest rain. just short of wilmington and all the way through middletown, you are seeing the yellows, oranges, reds returning on radar. that is indicative of very heavy rain, a steadier rainfall rate. in fact, enough so that we get
6:48 am
worried about flood concerns, particularly in the low-lying areas or flood-prone. if there's one area that floods out in your house, that's probably going to happen this morning. this is extending into cumberland county. this extends to vineland and lower to the creek. farther to the south, if you're scat -- a few scattered, 2 inches of rain so far and more to come. jumping over the bay to laurel lake, cape may county getting the heavier stuff. in philadelphia, not as heavy. more of a steady rain. it's picked up in, say, 30 minutes ago or so. heavier rain in berks county as well. amounts are pretty low. about quarter of an inch to half an inch in lehigh valley. that's an area not hit as much thus far. let's zoom into the hour by hour model and see what we're talking about in terms of when the heaviest stuff strikes.
6:49 am
