this weekend turns even colder. we're looking at rain and snow for parts of the area on saturday. 41 in reading. the wet weather has already exited reading. but philadelphia international reporting some scattered light rain showers and 46 degrees. and cape may is mostly cloudy. you can see the clouds are starting to break. this is the view from here at the nbc 10 studios. look at the flag blowing in that steady wind. the temperatures slowly climbing. the winds have been also climbing increasing now 29-mile-an-hour steady winds at northeast philadelphia airport. that's giving us windchills that really haven't changed so much so far today. 24 is what it feels like in reading. 40 now the windchill for philadelphia and northeast philadelphia. but head into new jersey doesn't look much warmer even at the shore wildwood is 41 degrees and feels like 39 in wilmington. there go the showers, not much left of them. just a few sprinkles right now moving into burlington county, lower bucks county seeing some of that activity.
we will be drying during the day and warming a little bit. upper 40s for quakertown and allentown and near 50 degrees in reading. very low 50s for trenton and mt. holly and norristown. with the gusty winds it's going to feel colder than that. may see an isolated shower at the shore during the early afternoon, but then partly to mostly cloudy skies and very low 50s for vineland, cape may and dover. not a big warmup for philadelphia either especially with that wind. low 50s for west chester and drexel hill. 53 in wilmington and philadelphia. and the weekend, yes, rain and snow moving through these are going to be nuisance showers. look at temperatures they stay above freezing. so if we get any snow accumulation, it will be on the grassy surfaces and mainly north and west of the city. and sunshine will get rid of anything that's on the ground on sunday after a cold morning. it will be frozen solid sunday morning. 50 sunday afternoon. there is a chance of showers as it turns warmer on monday. and a better chance of rain coming in tuesday. and that will cool things down

and get more information about autism, which is a real interesting learning difference, not disability but difference. >> and you have a connection to autism yourself. >> yes, my son was diagnosed around 2. and so when julian was diagnosed, one out of every 200 children were diagnosed with autism. now one out of every 68 children are diagnosed with autism. so really growing challenge in the community. and families like mine and also like te ri's having a child with autism is a challenge but also a blessing as well. >> tell us about your son also diagnosed with autism. >> jayden is now 9 years old. he was diagnosed when he was 3. he was nonverbal for a while. he has some language and communication now, but it took a lot, a lot of appropriate, intense therapy. and we had resources that most families don't, hence why we started the program so we can provide resources to the community who can't access them more readily. >> tell us about the resources available but sometimes hard to connect parents because they might not know once the diagnosis happens i'm sure it's scary and overwhelming and not
knowing where to turn, where you can get enough help to your 9-year-old's point right now, right? >> absolutely. so the challenge sometimes is just getting the diagnosis. that's one issue, right? and then once parents are able to get a diagnosis, what are the next steps? i mean, autism can be very complex and a maze and not sure where to get services. and sometimes services are everywhere, not all in one area. so we spend a lot of time in our advocacy group making sure we can navigate parents through the system, connect them to the appropriate resources and make sure they can connect their child and the families be the very best they can be. >> i want to tell our viewers again the details about the open house. it's an autism awareness community open house happening tomorrow from noon to 3:00 at jaden's voice new west philadelphia office on 5548 chestnut street. congratulations. free, open to everyone. you can find more information on nbc10.com or check out the nbc 10 app. councilman, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you for the opportunity ncht we were talking about nova

today? >> i did. >> reporter: why did you do that? >> it's a once in a lifetime opportunity and we're villanova season ticketholders. my kids go to so many games, we absolutely had to take this opportunity. >> reporter: you wanted to be here for this? >> absolutely. >> reporter: i noticed she was painting some faces earlier today as well. so they've got some extra spirit. again, this is where it will all end up, the culmination, the team, everyone very excited here. live in center city, lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. tracy, back to you. >> lauren, that's a lot of excitement. we're still an hour and a half away from the parade. monique had shown us some of the road closures already in effect. let's check with nbc 10 first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington. jessica, what are you seeing out there? tell us how to get around. >> well, okay, so we're going to start on the vine street expressway right now. we have no backups here, and there are no ramp closures on the vine. but it was put out there to avoid getting off around the 15th street and broad street exits because exiting on those areas a lot of road closures
around those areas so you'll see big delays there. otherwise the vine street expressway looks just fine. now, to the real closures rk of course the parade begins at 1:00 p.m. on 20th and market street and heads eastbound towards dilworth park. we'll see delays there, but watch for delays on market between 15th and 23rd. and on 15th between jfk boulevard and chestnut street. those will resume on a rolling basis as the parade moves on through they will open back up in time. now, watch for those no parking signs also. that went into effect at 6:00 a.m. and will be in effect until 5:00 p.m. so don't park in those areas. you will be towed on market street and 15th street. you want to look for those signs. also some mass transit changes to watch out for. providing extra trains for septa, so we have extra passengers to get on the northtown high speed line, market/frankford, broad street line, regional rail running every 30 minutes and detours for septa buses that travel around the area of the parade route have been detoured since 10:30 this morning and still will be until about 6:00 p.m. here's a list of some of those
bus routes. you can check with septa's website for more information. >> jessica, thanks for that. now another live look from skyforce 10 as we see the caravan of buses carrying the team, students and other school officials making their way into center city from villanova on the schuylkill expressway right now. reminds me of the shot that we followed the team buses when they came back on tuesday from the airport to the campus. but that's the team, other school officials and students making their way to center city for the parade. now, we were just with lauren mayk where the parade will end outside city hall. and, bill henley, she had gloves on. >> it is windy, it is cold. and no one in center city cares. >> that's true. >> everybody's excited. just like the morning after the win we had snow falling, but it didn't seem to matter all that much. the wind has been very strong. it's blowing some clouds past boathouse row. so now we're getting some sunshine. there's still a few clouds that are going to be moving into the area today. this is a satellite imagery. you can see the first round of showers that have moved through.
there's another batch of clouds moving through chester county with another shower. the showers that just moved through center city are now in burlington county. very light, just a sprinkle is possible. by the time the parade starts it's done. this is snow north and west. we will not see that. not today anyway. tomorrow's a different story. this snow and rain will be here for much of the day tomorrow, at least the chance of some scattered snow showers and rain showers. but that's tomorrow. for today for the parade 1:00, 48 degrees, but the wind will still be strong at 21 miles an hour with gusts above 30 miles an hour. so bundle up if you're going to the parade. and still windy this afternoon at 4:00 when we hit 52 degrees. all right, bill, thanks. and if you can't make it to the villanova victory parade in person, no worries, we've got you covered. you can watch it right here on nbc 10. we'll also be live streaming it on the nbc10.com website and on the nbc 10 app. all the fun starts at 1:00 this afternoon. well, the cleanup is
underway in northampton county after heavy wind gusts blue through the area. in easton the wind ripped the roof off of an apartment complex and peeled siding off of homes. some trees even came down. no reports of any injuries. in chester county the storm uprooted a tree outside an elementary school. and this is what's left of the mangled scoreboard next to the school's track. there's the tree. we'll wait for the scoreboard. there you go. first alert meteorologist bill henley says winds won't be as strong today. well, the pope's much-anticipated document on family life is out called "the joy of love." it is classic pope francis folksy calling for mercy and compassion but upholding basic catholic teaching. nbc's anne thompson has more. >> reporter: whether it is blessing an ohio girl slowly going blind, or today's massive -- this week the challenges of families are at
the top of pope francis' agenda. in the joy of love the pope acknowledges what long married couples know, sexual desire will change. there is no guarantee that we will feel the same way all through life, he writes. and tells couples to renew their devotion over the decades. that kind of plain spoken advice is peppered throughout the 260-page document putting on paper the kind of personal touch that is a hallmark of francis' papacy. what's not here any change in church teaching on the hot button issue of divorce and remarriage. he writes divorced and remarried catholics should not feel excommunicated and should be able to live and grow in the church. francis does not say they can receive communion, an omission that may disappoint some. on the issue of gays and lesbians, he urges respect and compassion but little more. and from the pope some surprising parenting advice, endorsing sex education at a time when he says sexuality is
too often and comes down on helicopter parents saying obsession is not education telling them to back off so their kids can learn to face challenges. the pope admits no family is perfect, but it is worth striving for that ideal. >> that was nbc's anne thompson reporting. well, wildcats all the way. philadelphia celebrating villanova's victory in style today. here is a live look at a caravan of buses that have come from villanova university on the main line. making their way on the schuylkill expressway. headed to center city where the parade starts at 1:00 this afternoon. our live team coverage of the center city celebration continues. guarantee they have the heat on on those buses. and you'll need the heat this weekend. cold as it is today with the wind it gets even colder for saturday and sunday. and, yes, i'm tracking rain and snow. we'll take a closer look at what you can expect when i come back with the seven-day forecast.
take a look at this. look at this video. a deer crashed through the front window of a nail salon in hartford, connecticut. the security video shows that at the moment it happened it actually took a few seconds for the stunned staff and clients to sort of grasp what happened. the deer struggled to get up before running through the salon and eventually leaving. no one was hurt, but this turned a day of a nail salon to a real nail biter. sorry about that. a philadelphia police officer ambushed on the job will
throw out the first pitch at the phillies home opener. officer jesse hartnett was shot three times in the arm during an ambush attack in january. he's had several surgeries since then but is still recovering. here's a live look from citizens bank park where on monday officer hartnett will take the mound ahead of the phillies home opener against the san diego padres. and if you can't make it to the home opener, nbc 10 has you covered. catch our pregame special at 2:00 followed by first pitch at 3:00 all right here on nbc 10. and here's another live look from skyforce 10 as we continue to follow that caravan of buses carrying the team, some students and other school officials from villanova making their way into center city. they're now within the city limits. and they're making their way to that parade which begins at 1:00 this afternoon. we have you covered full team coverage on air and on our nbc 10 app. today a new exhibit debuts
at the adventure aquarium in camden. it's a walk on the wild side. take a look at how wild. this is the aquarium's new shark bridge. nbc 10 got a sneak peek at just how close visitors will be if they dare to check out the sharks. >> this is a suspended rope bridge, so they are right underneath of you. there is no glass that's covering the top of the exhibit, so all the guests are going to be walking right over those sharks. you can see the sharks. we have about 30 sharks in this exhibit. >> wait a minute, it's a rope bridge? wait, i'm not sure -- you can tap the nbc 10 app or log onto nbc10.com for a link to the adventure aquarium's website and full information on the new shark bridge. well, do you have what it takes to protect and serve the community in which you live? a career in law enforcement could be just what you're looking for. and there are jobs out there. the philadelphia police department is one of several agencies looking for a few good men and women to join the force. officer diane cortez and kent scott are here to tell us more.

[ laughter ] thank you so much for what you do and thank you for being here and explaining this. i want to give our viewers more information on the philadelphia police department recruiting
unit sponsoring tomorrow's law enforcement career fair at bright hope baptist church on north 12th street in philadelphia from 10:00 to 2:00. you can get more details by calling the number 215-683-cops, or you can go to nbc10.com, or check out the nbc 10 app. officer cortes, officer scott, thank you so much for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> we appreciate it. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> a chilly day today. and the winds have been so strong, blowing clouds past the city. it's a live view from the adventure aquarium. we have seen a few scattered light showers. they're going to be out of the picture for this afternoon. 46 degrees right now with winds gusting to 35 miles an hour at philadelphia international. you can see the clouds. this is the view from the loews hotel in center city. blue skies starting to peek through after those thicker rain producing clouds have moved through. the showers now over burlington county. and there's one more patch moving into chester county, heading for delaware county, parts of philadelphia will see
these very light rain drops. first thing right around noontime. and then they're out of here. and snow showers to the north will stay to the north today. but over the weekend this is going to cause some problems on saturday. it's going to be snow and rain in the area. and it will arrive tomorrow morning. this afternoon at 5:00, 52 degrees, the winds will still be blowing. and that's colder air riding in on those winds by 11:00 down to 43 degrees. the 30s north and west. by tomorrow morning at 7:00 we'll be tracking some light snow showers and rain. but the key to this system is the temperatures which will be above freezing that will really limit accumulation to grassy surfaces, some colder surfaces like cars sitting out overnight could see some accumulation. while it's mainly rain in delaware and south jersey to begin with, at 10:00 heavier downpour activity in new jersey while there's still snow coming down north and west. but it's still above freezing. so it's one -- going to be one of those events where snow will
be coming down for much of the day north and west, but it will be melting as it hits the roadway. 1:00 in the afternoon, 39 degrees in philadelphia, then late in the afternoon, the evening that snow will finally taper off north and west. and that's when the colder air starts moving in. so the cold arrives after the snow and rain. now, if those temperatures come down a little bit more, we will wind up with more snow. that's something to keep an eye on for tonight and tomorrow. sheena parveen will have more on that this afternoon. but at this time the grassy accumulation north and west of one to two inches possible, an inch or less for philadelphia in through new jersey and delaware too. and then farther to the south it's mainly going to be rain, so no snow accumulation there. today, partly sunny, windy into the 50s, but just barely into the 50s this afternoon with winds gusting to 40 miles an hour. here comes the wet weather for saturday, 34 in the morning, 40 in the afternoon. so we'll see the temperatures rise during the day tomorrow in spite of the rain and snow. and then it all clears out for
sunday. very cold sunday morning. and the wind will be blowing to make it feel like it's in the teens, 50 with less winds in the afternoon on sunday. a chance of showers and warmer on monday, a high of 63 degrees. that may affect the home opener. we'll be watching that one closely too. a better chance of rain on tuesday, then we finally clear out wednesday and thursday. we'll be right back.
well, it will soon be a little less expensive to mail a letter. for the first time in 97 years the price of a stamp is going down this weekend. a temporary rate increase granted the u.s. postal service in 2014 expires on sunday. a regular stamp will cost 47 cents, which is down from 49 cents. and you're getting closer to the victory parade. philadelphia will secelebrate t national champion villanova wildcats in a little more than an hour from now. skyforce 10 has been following the team, a caravan of buses that have made their way from the main line from the campus there and right now the caravan of buses is on the schuylkill expressway passing spring garden headed to the start point of the parade. crowds of fans are already lining the streets market streets in center city. parade will start at 20th and market at 1:00. it will end at dilworth park in front of city hall. that's where we find these die
hards really excited. if you can't be there for the parade, no worries. you can watch live coverage of the villanova victory parade right here on nbc 10. we will also be live streaming the parade on nbc10.com and the nbc 10 app. all of it starts at 1:00 this afternoon. they're excited but it is chilly. >> it is chilly. the winds have been strong and they're going to stay with us through the afternoon. not a big warmup even though it looks nice or sunny, looks like a beautiful day. actually, it is not a bad spring day, but you have to bundle up if you're going to spend some time outside to enjoy the parade. the wind gusts have been impressive and i think the wind is moving faster than those buses coming from villanova. so 35-mile-an-hour wind in northeast philadelphia, blowing the clouds through the area. there's still a couple sprinkles out there, brief shower and you can see one that's just starting to fall apart as it exits chester county and into delaware county. so i don't think rain is a threat, but cold is for the parade. >> bundle up. all right. thanks, bill.
