more ground troops to fight. the president also bristled at suggestions that his strategy isn't doing enough. >> it's 5:04. given the events in parisnd a threats from isis expect to see tighter security measures moving forward. eagles fans experienced some of that on sunday. authorities say expect more of the same for the eagles game this sunday and the philadelphia marathon. police were in contact with the fbi during the paris attacks and that dialogue continues. >> good decisions quickly. and based on that again we adjust deployments, look at where the attacks occurred. we evaluate the similar things here. >> the police department's homeland security team is studying the paris attacks in detail. it recently added advanced active shooting training including how to handle a coordinated attack at multiple locations at the same time. >> a flight from paris arrived at philadelphia international airport last night. many of the passengers on board

but it's different than what you think. earlier this month, police went to a motel room in bensalem looking for a parole violator. he was there, so were two murder suspects from north carolina. investigators say one of the suspects fired at police, but the officer couldn't fire back because his gun actually stopped the bullet. it got lodged in the flashlight there you see it, under the barrel of the pistol. it's a miracle the officer wasn't hit. >> it was at such close proximity to one another where we're probably talking less than a couple inches away. >> the murder suspect who fired at police, lloyd wright, took his own life. the others are behind bars. 47 degrees. philadelphia city council members are all in on plans for a new hotel and casino. the council unanimously endorsed zoning for the casino in south philadelphia. these give us an idea what that

line a mill and a half and end it at the navy yard. >> it's so important for the development and expansion of the city to have a developed and expanded mass transit system. i am so proud to be here in the beginning of it but hopefully the beginning of its conclusion. >> septa is still working on a feasibility study and that is expected to take another year. right now the navy yard is home to more than 11,000 employees and 143 companies. it's 5:09. a second chance for small businesses still struggling three years after hurricane sandy. that's the idea behind a new bipartisan bill passed by the house yesterday, if approved by the president it could give business owners another chance to apply for government assistance. some homeowners could also be eligible. coming up on 10 minutes after 5:00, a cool chilly start this morning, the temperatures are still falling right now.
we had a chilly morning yesterday, a warm-up during the day. that's not happening today. it will be cooler even though we'll get sunshine, the winds have shifted. that's going to keep temperatures lower. later this week i'm tracking rain. and early next week a possibility of snow for parts of the area, too. right now 34 degrees. cold enough for snow. mount pocono in the 30s, northeast philadelphia and atlantic city low 40s at this hour. completely dry though you'll see high clouds at the shore. no stein of any rain for today. you won't need an umbrella but some areas will need sunglasses. the high clouds evare coming in advance of clouds in the midwest. the high cloudiness shouldn't cause a problem. still enough sunshine to have people putting sun class glasses on and warm up temperatures a little bit. 50s for allentown, reading and quakertown. sunshine, high clouds and 55 degrees in mount holly.

nicely. so, no problems right now on 309 and if you are heading out the door in new jersey, an update for that construction, the ramp from 42 freeway northbound to 295 northbound is closed, that's reopened so you're good to go. watch for crews in the area and watch out for the ongoing construction projects on 295 and the 42 freeway. there are lane restrictions there. they are ongoing. 202, you see our drive times okay here, north or southbound from 30 to the schuylkill expressway. we still have an 11-minute trip. i'm going to come back with a check on your morning drive. >> 12 past 5. this morning new developments we're following for you in the terror in paris. we'll tell you about the targets in the latest air strikes against isis. plus, no syrian refugees, we'll hear governor christie's stance even when it comes to orphans. the mission to find a missing cargo ship has come to an end with a key piece of evidence unaccounted for.

militant stronghold in the syrian city of raqqah. >> more than a dozen governors across the country say they are against letting syrian refugees into their state. >> in this area we're seeing both sides of that debate. new jersey governor chris christie says no way, he says no way to the refugees, not each orphans. the governors of pennsylvania and delaware are willing to welcome the refugees. some people fear that terrorists posing as refugees will enter the u.s. a professor specializes in middle eastern politics. >> we will detect them and be able to either stop them there or put them under surveillance and use them as intelligence assets without them even knowing it. >> he said that refugees entering the u.s. already undergo strict background checks. >> shameful. that's president obama's take on the idea of the u.s. giving christian refugees preference
when admitting people from war torn syria. the criticism came after jeb bush told chuck todd while a majority of refugees should be kept in safe zones in syria it's special and important to help syrian christians. president obama dismissed that notion near the end of the g-20 summit in turkey. >> that's not american. it's not who we are. we don't have religious tests to our compassion. >> criticism over refugees intensified after investigators found this syrian passport by the body of one of the paris attackers. authorities believe the attacker came in with a group of refugees. republican lawmakers want president obama to abandon his plan to bring syrian refugees to the u.s. >> federal search teams are giving up on finding the data recorder in that sunken charactero ship el faro. it went down near the bahamas during hurricane joaquin on october 1.

minutes with another check on drive times. check out this video. severe weather whipped up more than a dozen tornado s includin this. storm chasers captured funnel clouds, a twister hit businesses including the halliburton plant. the storm kautdscaused a chemic leak. we're taking a live look at denver where that city is under a blizzard warning. winter storm ajax is expected to bring heavy snow into the rockies and parts of kansas and nebraska. that blizzard warning is in effect until early this afternoon. we don't wantto see that here. bill henley did say we may see flurries. what can we expect from this system causing this blizzard warning out west? >> that's going to be a rainmaker on thursday. that's also producing the rain in the midwest and the
thunderstorms. you saw the funnel cloud activity, you showed that. that's rain for us for thursday. but not today. we are dry. mainly in the clear other than a few high clouds in the area. it's chilly this morning. 49 degrees, that's at philadelphia international. much of the rest of the area is cool. cooler and some areas dropped in the 30s including the pocono mountains which is completely dry. we'll see lots of sunshine today. this is a view from blue mountain. over the weekend the mountains may get the first snow from mother nature. just a month ago they were making snow it got cold enough for that. nothing on the radar screen here just yet. but to the west a line of showers and possibly some thunderstorm activity by thursday at midnight, early thursday morning you see that line moving through the ohio valley and into western pennsylvania, then during the day on thursday, that's when umbrellas will go up. rain coming through philadelphia, could be heavier downpours at times in delaware and south jersey. looking at about an inch of rain
there. and then another system way to the west in montana, wyoming and moving into the dakotas. that could bring us rain on sunday that may end with snowflakes for parts of the area. so the forecast, for today it's calling for actually not a bad day. just cooler than yesterday. we'll see mostly sunny skies, high cloudiness, definitely cooler with temperatures in the northwests today. the northeasterly winds at 12 miles an hour. tomorrow, a warm-up. that's ahead of the rain that's due in on thursday. 64 degrees, clouds increasing later in the day on wednesday. a steady rainfall for thursday and windy, too, but look at the temperatures. 67 degrees, thursday afternoon. it will not last with temperatures start dropping on friday. go even lower on the weekend. saturday not bad, a cold start, 55 in the afternoon. a chilly rain for most of the day on sunday. and sunday night we could see snowflakes especially north and west into the pocono mountains. cold for monday. potential problem with the
