of csn's breakfast on broad, jillian mele. hi, jillian. good morning. it's tough news for the eagles this morning to have to swallow. it was a bad loss, an ugly loss at the link. the packers were coming in having lost four straight and the eagles this is basically a must win for them. here's what we're talking about this morning, playoff chances for the eagles, both teams were in the hunt going into this it game. the eagles really had no chance to win the division but they were in the hunt for the last wild card spot. winning last night's game would have bumped their chances, certainly, but their chances were still slim to begin with. now with last night's loss they would have to win out the rest of the season to still have a really slim chance here. it's one of those things, guys, listen, anything is possible but i have to be honest to you and say it's getting tougher and tougher by the week. >> jill yian, thanks. >> see you guys. well, next up for the eagles a trip to cincinnati.
>> yeah, that's right. and it's going to get tougher and tougher. well, we have rain that is moving in. the eagles loss and now a rainy day ahead. a live view from camden, looking across the battleship new jersey. the rain is just starting to move into these neighborhoods, wilmington, philadelphia and trenton. that steadier rainfall moving into the ysuburbs, very light rainfall in philadelphia in the lehigh valley and in burks county. there's a steadier rainfall. reading is seeing that already. a rainy day all day. fortunately the temperatures are warm to start with and we'll have good southerly winds. that will make the rain feel a lot heavier than it actually is. we will see heavy downpours but with winds of near 20 miles an hour for much of the day it's going to feel rainy through the day and feel like that heavy rain is with us all day long. 46 degrees in the suburbs right now. warm through the 50s and up to
60 degrees this afternoon. and the rain falling this morning will continue right on into the afternoon. noontime temperature of 56 degrees. a good warm-up in the lehigh valley, too. most of new jersey is dry right now. a few spots starting to get light rain. it will quickly move into the area and then rain and wind this afternoon near 60 degrees at 2:00 this afternoon. the rain falling at the shore as temperatures are climbing with winds even strong er at the shore, 26-mile-an-hour wind at lunch time, close to 30 miles an hour at 2:00 this afternoon and delaware looking for sunshine, not happening today. the clouds are already moving in. the first showers arriving, gusty winds, 20-mile-an-hour wind at 10:00, noontime at 2:00. we'll still be seeing wet conditions at 4:00 this afternoon. and this is just the first round of the rain. there's more on the way for tomorrow. look at the ten-day to show you when it will finally clear out when i come back in ten minutes. all right, bill. we await all of those details. thanks for that. so people getting up this morning have to contend with the

say could have prevented the deadly amtrak derailment in philadelphia. you'll remember eight people were killed. hear how close amtrak, septa and new jersey's rail systems are to implementing positive train control. also -- rebuilding a neighborhood once decimated by fire. hear how people living on the block rebuilt after the move disaster, about new plans to redevelop the area.
new details, the nation's three busiest railroads in the northeast with still not up to speed when it comes to pos itiv when it comes to train control. the technology slows down a speeding train. septa is the only railroad in the northeast that's nearly finished installing the system. ptc is installed on all but one section of track. employees have been trained on how to use it. now amtrak has ptc installed along the northeast corridor on most of the rail company's 450 miles that it owns between
washington, d.c., and boston but a 56-mile stretch between new haven, connecticut, and new rochelle, new york, still does not have the technology. and new jersey transit has made little progress when it comes to getting the ptc into place according to federal railroad administration. it's not on any tracks. now the railroad says the federal data does not reflect the amount of progress. they say they're on schedule to meet the deadline to have ptc fully installed. it's 5:47. to an nbc 10 exclusive. a major effort to rebuild a philadelphia neighborhood destroyed by the move bombing decades ago is under way and only nbc 10 was there yesterday as companies interested in redeveloping dozens of vacant homes toured the area. more than 60 homes burned down after a police helicopter dropped a bomb on a house that was serving as the headquarters
of the radical group move in 1985. efforts to rebuild over the years ended with shoddy construction. now the city is hoping to avoid making the same mistakes. nbc 10 spoke to neighbors who welcomed the news. >> i would have liked to see it all come back together as a whole community and people living in the homes and not have vacant homes it has all these years. >> the city will take proposals from developers through the middle of next month. we'll keep you updated. it is 5:48. >> much warmer than yesterday. >> we'll take it. >> and it's going to get warmer in spite of the rain that's just starting to move into the area. light rain now. there will be periods of heavier rain. look closely this is a live view from south philadelphia. you can see the streets are starting to get damp. that is light rain that is falling right now. it will be intensifying through the day and it is falling in it
the lehigh valley, a few clouds, rain clouds have already taken over and the rain is going to be steady for much of the day. add to that some gusty winds and what we will see is a warm-up. see how it's in the 40s with the suburbs. look to the south where warmer air is in south jersey and at the jersey shore. with southerly winds that warmer air will overspread the entire area. the 40s and low 50s happening right now, that's temporary. will see 60s for these neighborhoods this afternoon and even warmer tomorrow. a rainy start at the bus stop, a little chilly but nowhere coal as yesterday. near 60 degrees in trenton, up to 54 degrees. that's at 8:00. the rain just starting right now. you're seeing some light rain showers just start to go move into delaware. steadier light rain in new castle county and into the suburbs and the lehigh valley
