>> 4:54 on this friday. let's check the roads with meisha. >> we are busy because we have a marathon this weekend. i'll get to the closures coming up in just a little bit. first what we take a look at is the vine. the vine now open for those of you taking it between the broad and schuylkill. that will was closed because of some overnight construction, both the eastbound and westbound directions, as you can see, westbound looking all good. eastbound, just opened right now. so that's looking all good, as. then the schuylkill eastbound at spring garden looking good in bolt directions eastbound and westbound. eastbound usually heats up limb bit making your way in center city this morning. but looking good right now for early friday. and speaking of friday's, one of our lesser travel days of the morning, typically, what we see. a look at new jersey, 42 freeway, right around creek road, approaching 295 looking good, very light traffic levels. now, speaking that far marathon we do have it this
weekend. so, saturday, 7:30, a.m., is the rothman institute 8k. then the kids fun run 10:30 a.m., the philly marathon half marathon sunday at 7:00 a.m. because of that, tees are some of the closures that we are going to experience, i'll get into this little bit more in depth in about ten minutes. so, katie, it will be a fun weekend for the runners. what can they expect in terms every weather. >> you know, i was going to leadoff with, that meisha, because it will be i think a rude awakening for folks that have been training outside for these events, coming up, it gets a lot chillier by that point in the forecast. it already is feeling a little chillier now. but, dose of winter is on the way for the weekend. that also of course means you'll need to bundle up extra with the extra layers for the eagles game, too. so storm scan3, quiet now, you can see the first frontal boundery retreating completely, clear as a bell, or if we're not completely clear getting there fast. but look at the wind direction. not so much the numbers, yell, breezy, but that winds direction is critical. since we do have a bree, granted it is not terribly
strong, it is enough it makes it feel chillier. we are going to see another front swoop in, saturday night, by sunday eagles game time it is a lot chillier, 46 degrees at kick off. not spec to go rebound too much more than that, beyond that point, through the rest of the day. so expect that it will be a cold second half of the weekend here. even chillier monday. but for the better part of this forecast, it is very quiet, with the at least sun icons, pretty much wall-to-wall, right to the seven day. we expect to warm things up gradually with time as well headed toward thanksgiving. >> at least sun. >> i true. >> coming up in the next hour of "eyewitness news", latest on the threat from isis in the wake of the paris attacks. >> plus this is about the last place would you expect to see a school bus, right? casino of scary scene there. right in the middle of a store. we'll let you know who was behind the wheel when it made its smashing entrance. >> ever find yourself doing little on line shopping at work? more
