New Morning Ticker

CBS 2 News debuted a new ticker this morning that makes traffic and weather more available. The left side, titled "Roads & Rails," picked three locations (59th St. Bridge, Battery and Bayonne Bridge) and updated viewers on their statuses (which this morning were "no problems," "no delays" and "moving well," respectively). The right half presented the forecast for the morning, afternoon and tonight, including forecast icon, temperature and brief description.

It's not clear exactly when the new graphic is supposed to be visible as it shared the bottom of the screen with the usual ticker that's been in use for over a year.
