season. thankfully we have seen worst of any storms get out of here. yes, we had strong storms yesterday. the front is stalling off to the south and there is even some lingering showers out there primarily through sussex county, delaware. i couldn't be shocked if some of us end up with a shower from philadelphia a on south at the some point today because again this front is nearby, it will hang out for a day, so, we are stuck from philly on south in cloud cover but there could be a shower around. looking a at area temperatures we have cooled off in mount pocono. flirting with the 30's. fifty at the airport. very much in line with where we were this time yesterday. with that said eventually we will, you know, see that sunrise over the horizon but the clouds will skew that sunrise for many. from the city on south, throughout the day today. meanwhile let look around the region. further north you go more sun you will see. it is a variable included cover around the region as a whole today but we will split
it down middle and call it partly sunny in philadelphia. it is a cooler take by comparison. we spike easily in the mid 80's yesterday and now we have basically seen a 20-degree drop in terms of the daytime highs. that cool air certainly will be very noticeable today, meisha, over to you. >> i felt the difference this morning walking out to my car. katie, thanks much. good morning. happy wednesday. a lot of construction again this morning. 422 westbound off ramp to route 23 is closed, this should be lifting right around 5:00 a.m. usually does. maybe a little bit over. right around 5:00 a.m. it is expect to be out of the way. blue route is closed again, that should be lifting right around 5:00 a.m. i-95 north leading up to the plea route that right lane with cones in play blocking you from eventing their right lane and getting out from the blue route. that should be lifting around 5:00 a.m. i'll loath you know when it does. this is where we have had our first accident, route 202 at
route 141, two lanes are block, one in the northbound side. make note of this. it will will slow you down as they try to get that cleaned out of your way. burlington bristol bridge was closed overnight, that has reopened but remember closing through thursday, it will be opened friday night and then closing again saturday through monday. jim and brook, over to you. well, breaking "news 3" people are in police custody after a home invasion and standoff in south philadelphia a police say men held up eight people inside a home and pistol whipped a man and a woman. twenty-nine were taken to presbyterian hospital. in word on their conditions. then suspects ran in the nearby home on the 6300 block of elmwood avenue, where police set up a barricade. they were able to arrest the suspects a all right time later. police tell "eyewitness news" they were able to track suspects to that home with a real time, crime camera. well, bucks county mother charged with the unthinkable. >> police say she killed her own child. detectives say that 23 year-old kayla moore admits to
kicking her two year old daughter in the head and body, several times, over the weekend. the child was rushed to children's hospital where she died monday. right now moore is being held, without bail. well, hill willry clinton and donald trump take major steps toward locking up their parties nomination winning big on super tuesday in pennsylvania, clinton cruised to an easy win over bernie sanders. 56 percent to 44 percent. trump, triumphed in the keystone state with 99 percent h 99 percent of the vote in, trump has 57 percent of the vote. clinton also swept delaware getting 60 percent with 100 percent reporting. while trump was clear winner in the the g.o.p. race, kasich edged out cruz for second place. clinton took two more states connecticut and maryland but pennsylvania was clearly the big prize of the night. clinton supporters pack the pennsylvania convention center, the campaign says it is now preparing for the november elections. clinton says she's planning
for her next trip in philadelphia, the city is hosting democratic national convention in july. >> with your help we will come back to philadelphia for the democratic national conn convention with the most votes and the most pledged delegates. >> clinton is now at least 90 percent of the the way to clinching the democratic nomination. bernie sanders won rhode island and he tells the a associated press that the campaign has a very narrow path the to the nomination, despite yesterday's losses. last night he told supporters in west virginia that he is in the presidential race to win. >> almost every national poll in every state poll has us defeating trump and that margin for us is significantly larger then that of secretary clinton. the reason that we are generating this enthusiasm is
because we are doing something very unusual, in contemporary american politics. we are telling the truth? in today, sanders will campaign in indiana's purdue university. donald trump sweeping all five states and puts him more than three-quarters of the the way toward the republican nomination. during last night's victory speech in manhattan the billion air, said as far as he is concern, it is over. trump implied clinton is only doing well in the campaign because she's a woman. >> i think only card that she has is women's card. she has nothing else going. frankly if hillary clinton were a manny don't think she would get 5 percent of the vote. only thing that she's got going is would the men's card and beautiful thing is women don't like her. >> trump says it is too early to be thinking about a running mate but when asked if new jersey governor chris christie would be on his short list, trump says he thinks christie is fantastic.
but when donald trump brought out gender card with hillary clinton new jersey's first lady had a reaction that has gone viral. mary pat christie lit up twitter watch as she glanced at her husband's direction and appears to roll her eyes. she just smirks and looks down at the ground. attention now shifts to the indiana primary, ted cruz is there as part of his strategy with john kasich he will block trum from clinching the nomination. case ache greed to clear a path for cruz in indiana, cruz will do the same for case nick oregon and mexico but kasich stopped short of urging his supporters to back cruz. >> and after more than two decade in office congressman chaka fattah has been unseated. >> fattah conceded the second congressional district prim willry race to dwight evans. congressman was seeking a 12th term. he ran a reelection campaign while planning for a federal trial on racketeering and conspiracy charges, which he
denied. we caught up exclusively with fattah as he left his headquarters. >> i'm thankful for those who supported me. how are you doing man, good to see you. and we think it is time for the spotlight to turn to those who won election this is evening, all right. >> now evans did not bring up the congressman's legal troubles during the campaign after his victory he talk about changing the tone in washington. >> we need to pull together and that is what i want to do. i wanting to there and figure out how we work with people. i think that is so important. i'm not new to the political process, i just want to get results. >> evans faces republican james generals in the november election. 81 percent of voters in the congressional district are democrats. katie mcginty won were 43 percent of the vote. mcginty is former chief of
