tv NBC10 News Today Weekend at 9am NBC April 2, 2016 8:30am-9:31am EDT
a cold front is moving in this weekend and with it we're getting wind and rain. we'll tell you about the winterlike weather in the first alert forecast. good morning. this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm rosemary connors. it's 8:30 on this saturday. meteorologist karen thomas is tracking the changes. karen, just when we thought it was starting to feel like spring, sunny, warm, back to winter. >> right. we're officially in the season of spring. yesterday it felt more like summertime with temperatures closing in on 80 degrees. some areas touching off at 80 degrees. we're we're headed with temperatures in the next 48 hours will feel like middle of winter. quite interesting for sure. gray skies right now and raindrops on the camera lens as we look at the city skyline. 54 degrees officially in philadelphia. a little colder to the north and to the west. not doing too badly down along the shoreline with rain down there as well. temperatures mainly in the lower to mid 50s. so 12 miles per hour. we're looking for winds to
continue at this pace until later on this afternoon. winds will start to develop and then become very strong overnight tonight into early tomorrow. so we do have a high wind warning in effect. that will go into effect tonight at midnight. we do anticipate potentially damaging winds overnight into early tomorrow morning with wind gusts up to 50 to 60 miles per hour so we talk about the potential for damage there. if you started to break out the springtime lawn furniture or patio furniture, you may want to bring it inside until tomorrow night. rosemary? >> good advice. thanks, karen. this morning we're hearing from the mother of the baby who was kidnapped from the king of prussia mall earlier this week as the police are look into the suspect's health records. ahsir simmons is back in his mother's arm. a woman abducted the child from the food court at the mall on thursday. >> why my child? why anybody's child?
how could you do something so hurtful and evil? >> the suspect is the daughter of a pennsylvania republican party leader. police say amoore brought the baby from the mall to a nearby home. the man who lives there declined to comment yesterday. the suspect told investigators she gave birth in february to a baby who died a few hours later. police are now checking into her medical records to verify that. authorities right now are holding amoore on half million dollars cash bail related to several felony charges including kidnapping. her preliminary hearing is set for april 15th. there are still questions about why it took hours for many people in the area to receive an amber alert about the kidnapping. nbc 10's monique braxton is live in the digital operations center to explain. monique? >> many people learned about the abduction via their smartphones. this morning we're looking into
why the emergency alert sounded nearly four hours after the 7 week old was captured on mall security cameras leaving the mall with a stranger. we examine the three-step process in pennsylvania. first, local authorities notify state police. state police then notify the national center for missing children and that group pushes out the alert from washington d.c. this was the scene as you know encountered by people at the mall. police told us they were called at 5:45 thursday evening. the police chief told us word spread almost immediately. >> an amber alert did go out minutes after this abduction. >> but the iphone time stamp for the montgomery amber alert shows it wasn't received until 9:36 thursday night. to issue an amber alert, law enforcement must believe that an abduction has occurred. they must also believe the child is in imminent danger.
they need enough descriptive information to assist in the recovery of the child. chief nolan says everything was done according to plan and it worked. in the next half hour, we'll look at that plan. live from the digital operations center, monique braxton, nbc 10 news. this morning police in camden are looking for a man they say shot and killed his own mother. nbc 10 was on the 1100 block of 18th street last night. there was a heavy police presence right after the shooting happened inside the suspect's house around 5:30. police have not released the suspect's name. family members say this was all unexpected. >> i know that he's not that type of person. he's a good kid. i believe a victim of circumstances because he would give you the shirt off his back. >> meanwhile neighbors tell us the mother and son had a strained relationship. a homicide investigation is now under way after a woman's body was discovered inside of a
burned home. it's unclear how the woman died. philadelphia firefighters found her body after battling a blaze on west bristol street last night. smashed wreckage is all that's left after a car hit a pole in montgomery county. this happened just after 12:30 this morning. pennsylvania state police were on the scene. we're still working to get more information about exactly what led up to the crash and what the condition is of the person inside the car. in camden county, police are investigating the death of a pedestrian. sky force 10 was over route 38 last night when a vehicle hit the pedestrian. the driver did stop at the scene. the spca is offering a $1,000 reward to help find a dog killer in chester county. you're looking at one of two dogs that disappeared on thursday of this week. their owner later found them dead near the home. someone stripped off the pets'
collars and identification. it's unclear how the dogs were killed. state police are working with the spca to continue to investigate the case. if you are looking for a new job, delaware is the place to be this weekend. we'll have details ahead. 11 days after the deadly terror attacks in brussels, the airport there remains closed. coming up on "nbc 10 news today," the hurdle that is keeping everything shutdown.

from now, runners and folks walking will hit the streets in philadelphia to help people with blood cancers. the walk and run kicks off at the navy yard. the event raises money for research and for those who need life saving bone marrow transplants. we spoke to one person who says this program changed her life. >> i got my bone marrow transplant when i was 12 years old and they found my donor really quickly and it was a very easy process and it was just very simple and i was really happy with the outcome. >> new volunteers will be invited to join the donor registry with a simple swab of their cheek. thousands of runners are participating right now in the april fool's half marathon in atlantic city. not a sunny day out there right now. a little bit cloudy and rainy. right now they are running along the boardwalk. runners are raising money for several organizations including the boys and girls club of atlantic city and angels of america which helps people in the special needs community.

taking a look at our saturday morning forecast, we have headlines that we're paying attention to because we have a lot of action happening in the forecast for sure. this morning we have showers. rain will continue through the morning hours pushing through most of the region and then our attention will be turned to high winds. winds will be developing later this afternoon and then very strong winds developing late tonight through the overnight into early tomorrow and then of course our temperatures are slated to feel more like wintertime than springtime. temperatures not doing too badly this morning, however. 53 degrees right now. but that's about where we're going to be and then temperatures will be falling off rapidly from there. winds out of the north in philadelphia right now at 10. as i mentioned, hold onto umbrellas as we move through our saturday morning. temperatures mainly in the 40s north and west of philadelphia. mainly in the 50s just about everywhere else. 54 degrees right now in dover,
delaware. 55 in millville and 54 degrees in atlantic city. we talked about the tale of the temperatures. it's really going to be interesting as we go around the area here. 48 degrees in allentown. 54 in the northeast as well and atlantic city. we started off on thursday well above average in the 70s. close to 80 degrees our high temperature topped out in philadelphia yesterday. 63 for projected high today and then really temperatures bottoming out into the 40s for tomorrow. well below where we should be. large area of moisture pushing in from the south. we see it here in this low pressure system continuing to push to the northeast and eventually off the coast. clouds will remain and those showers will stay with us until clearing later on this evening. we could still see some residual showers on and off tonight as that system finally makes its way out of here. future weather, what we can expect, tonight as i mentioned as we go through the afternoon into the evening hours, this
picture here that the precipitation will be clearing out. so that will happen but then on the backside of that will come the really strong winds. we'll start to feel the winds develop as we get into the evening hours and then become really strong overnight into early tomorrow morning. some of that wind could be potentially damaging. we'll have to keep a close eye on that. we do have some more shower activity moving through as this weather model shows us that some more rain moving through overnight tonight into early tomorrow. very spotty though. should get high pressure moving in for sunday. some clearing. peeks of sun. the clouds move back in for monday and the potential is there for some snow shower activity. lake-effect snow coming in with the other system. strong northwesterly winds drawing in the moisture and so to the south of that we could see some shower activity through philadelphia and parts of south jersey. this is for monday morning and then further north look at that, we could see snow shower activity with that system.
so very unusual for this time of year. we're looking at showers this morning mainly midday and then clearing out later on but the winds are expected to intensify as we move through our saturday night into our sunday. look at the temperature drop-off. 48 degrees for a high temperature tomorrow. we stay pretty chilly especially those overnight lows and then we sort of moderate by midweek. >> i can't believe i'm seeing 30s and even a 28 in there. thanks, karen. time to check in now on wednesday's child. a 12 year old sixth grader that's outgoing and talkative and what he really needs is a forever family. >> he likes cooking and creativity so we set up a sweet trip to kim's cakes in wilmington. >> i like to cook, sing, dance and i love puppies. >> he's looking to get hooked up
with a right forever family. >> somebody who likes puppies as much as i do, who loves to travel, go camping, loves music. >> he has experienced a lot of trauma in his young life. the ideal family for him is one that's experienced and will help him with emotional support. >> he gets special attention at school and needs a family who will be an advocate for his education. >> my favorite thing in school is to play instruments in music class and do experiments in science. >> today's experiment was a sweet success. >> maybe about 15 minutes we'll have cupcakes. great job. >> icing on the cake would be finding that forever family with a puppy. >> cupcake! >> he's this week's wednesday's
