this freeze warning lasting us until 10:00 this morning, basically all it means, it is cold enough for any sensitive vegetation to freeze over. hopefully you had a chance to cover up the protect your plant, anything sensitive. hopefully you did come into the house with you last night, or at least get a clot thrown over t temperatures near or below freezing, region wide, right now, and as the day goes on, it is not really going to rebound all that much. mid 40's, by 3:00 p.m. at best, with blustery wind it, might as well be february, meisha. >> yes, katie, lets talk about the vine, too. i know, i had to take it too this morning, so the vine right now, good news, it is open westbound and in the eastbound direction. where you're still going to hear little problem, though, is the schuylkill east on the ramp to the vine closed. not, westbound, eastbound open, but the schuylkill eastbound ramp to the vine is still closed. ill of course let you know when that lift, but just make note of that, that it is closed right now.
construction, 422 westbound, between the schuylkill and oaks, also construction eastbound, between oaks and trooper. make note of that, as well, over night construction, hopefully will get cleared out of the way. make note it is still out there. then 95, before girard, looking good. looking really good for those of you hitting the roadways this morning, jim, over to you. >> thanks so much, meisha a if any villanova professors are watching, please cut your student break this morning, the campus was absolutely bonkers throughout the night. >> yes, the game came down to the final seconds, with nova pulling off one of the best finishes ever. they say, we'll ask pat gallen about there is check out the pal i have john, wildcats hit three pointer at the buster win it all. pandemonium. roof almost came off that place. pat with this miracle finish, best finisher? >> best finish of all time, college history, yes, believe it, guys, did you stay up and watch in? >> no, i woke up about 10:00,
11:00 saw were you tweeting. >> i was up all night. >> i figure. >> up all night. very little sleep. it was worth t no doubt. at the ends of every ncaa tournament, luther vandrose, great place, throughout the feel of 68. but it might be time to retire that, because last night, villanova's chris jenkins had the shining moment of all time, one that may never be topped. let's pick it up late in the second half. nova would start to pull away, ryan arcidiacono nails a three, nova's up six. rollie massimino loves it. unc, though, would storm back, here is marcus page, with impossible shot to tie the game. michael jordan, he said a few of those shot in his life. about a thousand of them, he can't even believe it. 4.7 to go. take us home, chris jenkins. arch finds him. and he nails it. chris jenkins with perhaps the greatest moment in college basketball history, i still have goosebumps from it, still have it. people just freaking out, and why not?
villanova is a champion. take another look at this one. cool, calm, championship. love it. wildcats win 77-74, ryan arcidiacono says this is one play they new well. >> we know what play we were going to at the end of the game. we work on it every single day in practice, i wanted to be aggressive so i could get a. who i was going to shoot t i heard someone screaming in the back of my ear, back of my head, and it was chris, and i just gave it to him, let it go with confidence. >> unbelievable. not every day you win a national nam chon chip or any title on the final play. chris jenkins is now a legend. what a game. start to finish. i mean, these are the games you honestly live for as sports fans. bring on the parade! we're ready to party. i was attempted to drive out there last night hang out with the kids and make me feel young last night. >> all right. >> but i had to make it back in. i'm here. >> head coach jay wright the coolest guy in the room. talk about cool many, calm,
collected, that was jay, no fist pumping, not even a smile, instead it was more after exhale for one of the best coaches in college basketball. now, we want to get you out to the campus now where the party went long into the night. >> yes, the crowd was ready. but so were the police. our coverage continues with "eyewitness news" reporter jan carabeo, jan it, has to be calm out there now, right? >> good morning, that's right. the crowds are all but gone, along lancaster avenue, and here on villanova university's campus, this morning, off to bed for now, but certainly, a whole lot to look forward to later on today. not only is this championship team coming home this afternoon, but happening here outside of the book store later this morning some 5,000 championship t-shirts are on the way. i can't say what time just yet. but they're in route. take a look at this. this was the reaction when nova hit that game winning shot, student watching inside the pavilion just went wild.
shop per three over the scene as well over the campus as those students spilled out of the arena and across the main line. fans flooded and shutdown lancaster avenue for some time, that road, how much, is back open this morning and by and large all of the student i think have gone home to get much needed rest ahead of the excitement today. unfortunately, not everyone followed the rules last night, police say there were at least five arrests, overnight, seven minor injuries, were reported as well, after people were spotted throwing cans, bottles into the crowd. and on top of that, there were two minor fires. now, police extinguished those, and majority of the fans continued to celebrate this big win. take a listen. >> it is unbelievable. i got the theme in lexington in 85, my kid wanted me to come down to campus to see it on campus, i said i always regretted not being here when they won in 856789 so i got to see both. it has been great. >> so he got to see the eight a win, and now 2016.
national champions. of course the university says there will be a bick celebration on campus today. they're still put that together. the team is expected to land right around 4:00 then be back on campus right around 5:00 this evening. so we will keep you to up date with all of those details. now the big question is will there be class today? the university says they're make that decision right now, and that should be outright around the 6:00 hour. so stay tuned for that. for now, live on villanova university campus, jan carabeo, cbs-3, "eyewitness news", jim, brooke, back into you. >> thanks, jan. >> i wouldn't be surprised if people were still cheering right now somewhere. look at these cheers inside corner pizza on lancaster avenue. they shared this video on twitter, and anyone who goes or went to school at villanova knows this is one of the go to spot for hungry students late at night. there is somebody in the house somewhere. >> exactly. another great spot, manila

outside? are we in alaska? >> oh, you. it does feel like february for philadelphia, i won't lie. it is really chilly outside. so if you are going to be going out celebrating villanova's big win, running into the streets, don't do that, at least wear your winter coat when do you that. yes, so proud of the wildcats, go nova. but, yes, you know it, does feel like we are stuck in the depth of winter right now. as we start things off with a look here, live look at the intersection of broad and spring garden, this is take friend our very own station headquarters here at cbs-3, all calm, folks. i saw what one bus moving through the shot there. very tranquil beginning to the morning. that said, it is also really cold outside. let me take you next to storm scan. we did yesterday have frontal boundery sort of draped through the delaware valley t really took a while to get through. but once it did, it has now left behind pretty vicious chill out there, folks. you can see the brunt of any wet weather at this point, pretty much confined across the southern most delmarva. folks in sussex county
watching us in the southern southeastern most communities, where you are actually still finding little hint of wet weather. but generally speaking, skies are completely clear at this point, say for couple of lingering clouds, starting to clear out nicely throughout the course of the day high pressure now regaining control. now, that said, as we move forward in this forecast, you will be in full sunshine here today, guys, but the wind and the fact that that cold air has taken over means, yes, feels like february. so mid 40's at best for daytime highs. next disturbance does come along for us looking ahead to thursday, so we get two days of quiet weather, chilly weather but quiet weather. then the next storm system does come along. later on tonight, we will see freeze watch take effect with temperatures overnight below freezing once more, make sure to protect that sensitive vegetation guys. it will be going out of effect by tomorrow morning. meisha, over to you. >> katie, i brought my plant in the other day just because you reminded me. i always forget to water them, take them in. so thank up for. that that's a problem. good morning, everyone, happy tuesday to you. looking outside the vine, all
good. all clear. for awhile there schuylkill east on the ramp was closed that's now all since opened, eastbound and westbound on the vine, looking good. look add. that will almost nobody out on the roads this morning, construction here, 422, this is both moving in the westbound between schuylkill and oaks and eastbound direction between oaks and trooper. make note of. that will you can still see the cones and the flashing light, but overall, they are getting this cleaned up. usually overnight construction will certainly get out of our way sometime soon. talcony palmyra bridge, all up right now, for those of you having to take that, also an accident outside that's just been cleared, where vehicle went in the ditch. madison ford road, went into the ditch, all since cleared, you won't get any of the residual, garden state parkway northbound at route ooh, left lane block, jim, back over to you. >> thanks so. campaign 2016 focuses on wisconsin, which is holding it primary today. >> yes, the cbs news poll shows specifically tight race in both party. the democrats are starting to
pay attention to pennsylvania, and it is april 26 primary. hillary clinton is scheduled to address the afl-cio convention in philadelphia tomorrow. bernie sanders will be there thursday. sanders will be in town tomorrow, though, early for a rally, at temple's liacouras center. >> former eagles running back, lesean mccoy, will not be charged for his alleged role in a bar fight. may still get in trouble with the nfl. mccoy and three other were reportedly involved in the brawl with two off duty police officers, at an old city night club, on superbowl sunday. authority say one officer, suffered a broken nose, broken ribs in the fight, the other suffered a skull fracture. the district attorney says there isn't enough evidence, though, to charge mccoy. >> while it is clear a physical alter take took place, and that several people were injured, there is insufficient credible evidence to determine which of the
participant was the initial aggress or or whether some participants were acting in self-defense. >> i think that every defense attorney now who takes a client on with a bar-room brawl just got a free pass in the city of philadelphia. >> the da also says both off duty officers told different stories, and didn't immediately demand an arrest or go to the hospital. >> in other news, ntsb will interview surviving members of the construction crew today, to determine why a back hoe occupied the same track in the deadly amtrak crash in chester. workers, 61 year old joseph carter, jr., and 59 year old peter adamvich, several say the passenger train headed from new york to valve and a was going 106 miles per hour in 110-mile per hour zone. the national transportation safety board says the engineer placed the train into emergency mode 52nd before impact. thirty-seven passengers were injured. >> meanwhile still ahead on "eyewitness news" this

about? >> okay, atlantis turner field, how about a burgerizza, 20-ounce patty, five slices of cheddar, on a bun, made of pepperoni pizza houston sweet potato waffle chicken sandwich, and the st. louis cardinals have new meatball cone which is pretty much what it sounds like, meatballs in a italian bread cone, no forks required, perfect ballgame food, i think. >> it sounds look good stuff. >> and she is always looking for snack food. >> i was going to say this may be above my level. >> i think we're going to get along. >> thanks, jill, we'll get back with you. >> meanwhile, another check on traffic and weather together. >> katie tells us when we may see storms and when it will start to feel like spring. i hope she says in a hour.
