6:30 am
windchill. one thing is for sure, the cold temperatures will are you bundling up if you're headed out to church or running errands this morning. and speaking of cold, the flyers actually red hot, headed to the stanley cup playoffs. they clinch a wild card spot with the win which you saw here on nbc 10. good morning and welcome back to nbc 10 news today. i'm george spencer. it is now 6:30 on this sunday morning. and we'll get right to first alert forecast with meteorologist karen thomas and, karen, for the runners out there this morning, good running weather. for the rest of us, it is cold. >> absolutely. so if you're not going to be one of the runners in the race this morning, have another cup of coffee and throw another log on the fire and call it a morning. why not. relax, right? i think the runners are going to be happy with the forecast. just take it easy. you'll want to bundle up if you're headed out. looking live at the art museum. plenty of sunshine on tap today. don't look for things to really warm up, especially this
6:31 am
morning. we have a freeze warning in effect until 10:00 a.m. for all of the areas there in purple. and what we can expect today, we are looking for sun and clouds, but before we get to 49 degrees, we got some very cold temperatures out there. temperatures mainly at the freezing mark, north and west in the upper 20s. and then the windchill factors into. it is a cold start to our sunday morning. not looking for that big of a warmup, 49 degrees as we start out this morning. about 12 to 15 degrees below really where we should be for overnight lows. cold arctic air in place. that ushered in in the wake of the storm from yesterday. so to get a real nice -- real feel on what is going on outside and what it feels like, let's get a check on that from nbc 10's deanna durante, who is live at the art museum. i give you a lot of credit. i'm reporting on whether inside, so you're inside. >> reporter: that hasn't gone

smiling about it. >> yeah, they take care of us. >> reporter: yeah, and the sun coming up now over the oval in center city. the race will begin on the north side of the oval, and end here in front of the art museum steps and take people throughout center city as well as strawberry mansion, down mlk drive. you'll see a lot of closures in the city. we saw a lot of people showing up here about an hour ago, volunteers, 14-year-olds, wearing sweatshirts. they didn't seem to be bothered at all by the cold. you'll hear from them coming up in half an hour. and if you're going to be heading into the city, remember those road closures, many should be open between 10:30 and noon, that's after the race. reporting live in center city, deanna durante, nbc 10 news. and new from overnight, a man is dead after being shot outside a nightclub in philadelphia's kensington neighborhood. police say the 26-year-old man was shot in the chest outside the nivel nightclub at b street and allegheny avenue. it happened around 2:45 this
6:34 am
morning and there are no arrests. two philadelphia 7-elevens were robbed within half an hour of each other and now police are trying to figure out if they're connected. around 1:30, robbers pistol whipped a worker at the store on frankfurt avenue in holmesburg, taking cash and cigarettes. then around 2:00 a.m., an employee was pistol whipped inside a store at bridge and thompson streets in bridesburg. investigators are working with that store to confirm what was stolen there. so far, there are no arrests in that case. an off duty philadelphia police officer shot and killed a robbery suspect. and this morning investigators believe that shooting was justified. the officer intervened while the suspect was robbing an eld arealare ly man on broad and chew streets. the two men exchanged words and police say the man refused to drop his weapon. >> at that point, the suspect
6:35 am
turns toward the officer, the officer engages him, i believe there is a discharge at that point in time. the suspect then fled southbound on park avenue toward chew. >> the suspect was shot in the stomach and collapsed after running away. he died just a short time later at the hospital. right now, we're working to get more information on a car crash that killed a 3-year-old child in the lehigh valley. nbc 10 was on the scene in hanover township in lehigh county. two cars collided on weaversville road yesterday afternoon. and you can see how bad the damage was. police say the impact of that crash threw the toddler from one of the cars. there is no word on the condition of the drivers or exactly what caused that accident. one week ago today an amtrak train collided with a backhoe killing two workers. amtrak is now retraining workers on basic safety rules. investigators are expected to
6:36 am
issue a report on what they found in the next few days. the federal railroad administration has already told amtrak to go over track safety and communication protocols. experts believe that is an indication that the with workers did not even realize the track was being reopened to train traffic. happening today, septa is making permanent schedule changes for regional rail riders. the airport line will no longer stop at the west trenton station. chestnut hill east and l trains are being run on saturday and sunday, but at new times. service will also be earlier on the lansdale, doylestown line and the paoli thorn dale line. there are more changes you can check out for yourself on our website at nbc10.com. the flyers are returning to the stanley cup playoffs. the orange and black clinched a wild card spot by beating
6:37 am
pittsburgh at the wells fargo center. a game you saw here on nbc 10. right winger wayne simmonds scored twice in the flyers 3-1 victory. goalie steve mason stopped 18 of 19 shots. not bad. flyers are back in the post season after missing it last year. they opened the playoffs at washington on wednesday night. today, the flyers wrap up the regular season out on long island. belgian authorities believe the elusive man in the hat has been arrested from the brussels airport bombing and now investigators say they're learning about a second planned attack. and with a national title now under his belt, villanova coach jay wright is turning to a new fight. we'll explain that next.
