new jersey, and part of delaware. actually the majority of the determine marva peninsula getting hit with light rain, pocket of steadier rain, but there is back edge to this, when i throw the satelite composite over this, see skies starting to clear out, actually the state capitol of harrisburg over the last couple of hours it, will take time, behind the frontal boundary clouds break for sunshine in the city and the further north and west you go, generally looking at sunny day. you will likely be stuck in the clouds though if not have to dodge few showers coaster to the coastline, at least in the city today expect to see things lighten up with time here. temperatures hit the mid 70s, where they should hit. unfortunately, meisha, this isn't the last gasp of the rain for the week. i'll tell when you the next rounds get here later in the show. >> that will be great to know. thank you so much. good morning, everyone, so we have an accident out there. in fact, we have couple of them out there. good news a lot of them are getting cleared out of the way. still wet, damp most areas, accident 95 south, near the betsy ross bridge, pulled all the way off to the far left shoulder, and probably at this point, clearing now if it
hasn't completely cleared already. nonetheless still slowing down in this area, starting to heat up. take a look at this, very busy around this stretch. also, schuylkill westbound at city avenue. hard to see, kind of zoomed in, there just before city avenue rather. you can see how you're not even driving. i mean, you are almost in a parked position. you're traveling at about 5 miles per hour if that. so schuylkill westbound at city avenue give yourselves extra time. the boulevard southbound leading to up where the schuylkill westbound is you can see how slow moving it is, look at the far left lane, completely stopped there. so very busy this morning, accident here, haw's avenue, west main street, one lane block there, jim, over to you. >> thank you, meisha. the countdown is heating up. just 41 days from election day, last night for the first time the candidates went tow to tow over the issues. surely be the topic of conversation today at work or gym, and last knit filled with plenty of memorable moments. >> traded jabs for 90 minutes, giving voters lots to discuss.
one of the more explosive moments came when trump hammered clip on on her e-mail controversy. >> i made a mistake using a private e-mail. >> that's for sure. >> and if i had to do it over again, i would obviously do it differently. but i'm not going it make any excuses. it was a mistake, and i take responsibility for that. >> it was more than a mistake. that will was done purposely, okay? that was not a mistake. that will was done purposely. when you have your staff taking the fifth amendment, taking the fifth, so they're not prosecuted, when you have demand set up the illegal service taking the fifth, i think it is disgraceful. >> a loft back and forth, so there has to be a winner. >> bill rosenberg political analyst and professor of political science at drexel university is with us to offer insight. good morning, bill. >> good morning. >> so what do you think? what were the biggest strengths and weaknesses for each of the candidates last
night? >> first of all i would like to say we had amaze inning large audience last night very interested in watching the debate. and secondly, i think, when you watch the debate, it depended on who you are in terms of what you thought were good moments and bad moments. i think in the end though hillary clinton seemed much more prepared. she seemed much more at ease. on the other hand, we had donald trump who throughout most of the night when we saw that split screen had an angry look on his face. and seemed to want to continually interrupt hillary clinton when she spoke. did he get in his major points. he brought up the server. he brought up law and order. he brought up stop and frisk. he brought up terrorism. but i think in the end hillary clinton probably presented herself better. she allowed donald trump to somewhat hang himself on his own rope, at least in terms of
her perspective about what donald trump was saying. >> now, in your opinion, did one candidate get their message across more effectively? >> again, i think it depends on the audience. the viewer. for those who really like donald trump, they're going to say that had he a good night. those who liked hillary clinton, they're going to say the same thing. one of the things i did, which was kind of interesting, as soon as the debate was over, i immediately began flipping between two stations, between cnn and between fox to see how more less leaning -- left leaning program would view the debate, and how a more right wing leaning program would view the debate. to my surprise, i didn't finds entheusiastic response on the fox network. on the cnn network it was obviously a mixed bag because some of the people were trump supporters and some of them were clinton supporters. >> well, bill, everyone
focuses on these polls. do you think this debate will impact the polls at this point? >> well, they're very few people that are still in that undecided camp. i don't think last night there was anything that happened that really shook the foundation every clinton support or trump support. it may have had the effect, though, of blunting the momentum that donald trump has been seeing over the last week or so. but in the end, i think we are really talking about a very small number of people who are potentially likely to change. you also have to realize that there is in a sense only about 29 counties in the whole united states that are really, in terms of the electoral college vote. so really talking about going out there very, very targeted audience. >> bill, what do you think was the main goal for each candidate, for example, was it to appear more likable, trustworthy, presidential? >> well, i think donald trump was trying to make sure that he looked presidential. and that he had the
temperament. in fact, he even went out of his way to say directly: i have the temperament to be president. he also used sort of language like honestly, believe me, trust in me, and so for the. which was sort of an appeal on an emotional level to get people to come closer to him. >> i think hillary clinton, on the other hand, used more clarifying statements, she did not responds in a sense of getting angry, did not get overly excited, and tried to maintain a much more even keel. >> well bill the next debate will be more after town hall style situation. do you think that works as an advantage for either one of the candidates? >> well, i think both of them have the ability to relate to people. i think one of the trump's issues, though, last night, was that many of the appearances he's done all along have been in front of partisan crowds, in bye he was able to feed off the energy of the audience. last night, there was none of
that. it was him versus hillary clinton for 09 minutes. so, i think if the crowd is able to be more engaged, and he can relate, in a sense to the people that are asking the questions, i think he's probably going to do a little bit better. but one of the things i would say is this is kind of like the world series. last night was game one. and i think everyone on it continued to tune in to see what happened. >> thanks so much. bill rosenberg live with us this morning, we appreciate. >> thank you very much. now that first presidential debate is in the books, but here is how it unfolded on social media. >> according to data just released, donald trump dominated the twitter fear. 62% of tweets were about trump compared to clinton's 38%. >> on facebook there was also more lopsided with trump earning 79% of the conversation, while 21% of posts were about clinton. >> the top social moment of the debate was when trump said his strongest asset was his
temperament. stay with "eyewitness news" for continuing coverage of campaign 2016. when we're not on tv you can always fine the latest on our website cbsphilly.com. well, coming up next: we're waking to up wet roads. we'll have another check on weather and traffic on this west taught morning. >> do you know when it is time to make the first trip to the eye doctor? doctor rob is here, the first warning signs your child may have trouble with their visit. >> i'm pat gallen. this is big red pedal in philadelphia. why are we on this big red bus? because we're taking a look at 100 things to do in philadelphia before you die. this is part of t you get to see the city in a whole new way. join me coming up. >> ♪ >> one of the best songs ever, right, jim donovan? >> okay. >> this is what i get. >> ♪

relatively steadily. back we go toward the harrisburg state college. starting to see the skies clear out. eventually where we ends up here as well. but there is new storm on the way. by the time we hit wednesday night, and then through thursday, friday, as well as saturday day, this system going to set up overhead. so look at the possibility here, some rain amounts, could equal multiple inches, over the course of several days granted but looks like unsettled pattern. we will catch break later today through most of tomorrow, tomorrow night, thursday, rain returns, and scattered showers are still with us, even through saturday. meisha? >> all right, katie. and a lot of rain out there, leaving with us wet roadways, yes. but also a lot, a lot of congestion out there. schuylkill westbound at city avenue looking very, very slow, definitely give yourself extra time there. also, boulevard southbound before the schuylkill, pulled all the way off to the right shoulder. you can see an accident still there. and it is slow moving around that air. then another accident that just popped up here. ninety-five north near

>> morning. >> say if a child is struggling in school it could be an irish ooh? >> you're right. we always look at the senses, eyes, hearing. so if a child is not seeing correctly, then it is hard to learn. it is hard to focus. maybe to read on the blackboard, people think wow they're a slow learner. you're not even remembering what they red. chances are maybe they're not being able red correctly and things are blurry. they might lead to behavioral problems. always check the senses, eyes, ears, someone having trouble learning or acting out. >> i know oftentimes kids aren't able to identify signs of a vision problem, but there are important signs in parent should look for? >> good point. kids don't know. normal for them. but, certain signs you want to look at. first squinting. are they skin g when looking at things? or do they sit really close to the tv when they are watching? that's one of the things to be careful about. or do they tilt their head to one side or do they close one eye when trying to look. these are things that maybe they're favoring the good eye. also do they rub their eyes a lot? do they have a lot of tearing,
or do they say mommy, daddy, they get headaches all the time. specially headaches up front. maybe it is from eye strain. so these are some subtle signs for kids to pay attention to. maybe there is a problem with their vision and need glasses. >> and irish use can also indicate other issues. >> yes, absolutely. so by the time a child is three, four months of age, it is real important we look at their ease. did you ever see someone cross eyed? >> sometimes they are or a fancy term, lazy eye, and what happens is both eyes aren't looking at object correctly. they may start to lose vision in the one eye that they're not using that much. so if we see a child after three, four months of age, where the ice when they look at you aren't aligned or they look to one side, one deviated or off to the sealed, important to see an eye doctor, these are early clues. >> let's talk about adults, i know as we get older it is common our vision changes. >> yes. you're so right. i don't know if you've ever seen people, hold thing a mile away from them to read it?
>> no, never seen people do that. >> it is aging. as we get more age gifted our eyes do change. sometimes the shape of our eye, sometimes the way we're focused, sometimes cataract. but things like this, blurriness, you know, adults might say something is blurry, either far or trying it read close up. or driving at night, sometimes people think doctor like a halo above the light. you know, authorities see or street signs. or maybe they're getting double vision. they can't focus. you know, these are some clues that maybe they need glasses or something else is going on. >> how do you know if you need glasses? i have the cheaters, little readers, all over the place, i can never find them, that's why i buy more of them. but how do you know if you need this or prescriptions? >> best thing, get tested. if you are nearsighted, see stuff close, or far away, then you need glad cents -- glasses for. that will if you have trouble seeing far but you see close, may need glasses. sometimes people need bifocals because if there is a change to your vision, in adults we notice it, if there is a change it is best to get your eyes checked. a lot of times we take it for granted so it is real
