    "The traffic is going to increase as it.."

    "The traffic is going to increase as it's becoming morning."

    Please tell me a better phrase for "becoming morning"

    Thank you.

    Re: "The traffic is going to increase as it.."

    ... as we approach the morning rush hour.
    ... as the morning commuters hit the road.
    ... as it gets later in the morning.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
