11:07 am
has cooled down over the last couple of days. remember on tuesday we were 62 degrees. wednesday morning it felt like 39. that was quite a drop. and this morning at 7:00 a.m. felt like 18. just two days that kind of change. right now it's 33 despite that sunshine and still in the 20s in blue bell, perkasie, kotsdsville 28 degrees. poconos 28 degrees. still feels like 19 in pottstown, 23 in philadelphia, 20 degrees in reading. as we go through the day today, it's mostly just holding in the 30s with at least a little wind, the wind may diminish some later today. it's going to feel like it it's in the 20s again by 6:00 and the
11:08 am
wind really dies down tonight. so there is no real difference between the actual air temperature and the feels-like temperature. but we're going to be seeing some real significant changes coming, warming and also some wet weather over the weekend. we'll get into those details in a few minutes. philadelphia police say they have recovered the hammer and a kitchen knife a man allegedly used to kill his mother in an east falls apartment. they say they found 49-year-old tammy blunt inside her apartment. the motive for the killing remains unclear, but investigators say the suspect malachi white has mental health issues and was off his medication. >> most people you know your neighbors, you're welcomed, you're happy, but i wouldn't expect anything like to to come out of here. >> sources tell nbc 10 the son had been living with his mother's body for days and confess when'd police came knocking on his door. and this afternoon law

11:10 am
the roosevelt boulevard route 1. that's why have you that delay. then to the far left of your screen you see that the eastbound traffic is crawling as well. that's something else. we have a lot going on. so the eastbound traffic is because there's a roaming maintenance crew in the eastbound lanes heading towards the city and that's adding a ton of drive time to what's typically 18, 20 minutes to go from the pennsylvania turnpike east into the city. it's about a 45-minute drive right now. going to i-95 there's a disabled vehicle at the allegheny avenue that's causing delays on northbound 95. let's shift gears and move into delaware. wanted to get a look at your drive times around wilmington. 95 northbound between 295 and 95 that's about an 11 minute drive, nine minutes in the opposite direction. back to you. happening today, a vote that could finalize a change. septemb septa board is expected to

11:15 am
switsserland for the world economic forum. this morning the president met with israeli prime minister netanyahu where they must receive aid money from the u.s. hallie jackson has more on what the president will be doing during the forum. >> reporter: this alpine town is a particularly interesting place for this president to visit, not just because he's the first sitting u.s. president to come to this economic submit in nearly 20 years, but because donald trump ran on that platform of pop pewism and dab bos is filled with the blobl elite. what is he doing here? the guy who sees himself as the deal maker and chief is trying to do exactly that, working on the remembering are the national security, those are the big focuses here. the president later on today is having dinner with some european-based businesses trying to convince them to invest more in the united states. he also has some critical one on one meetings with world leaders. even though president trump is
11:16 am
here in switzerland, he still cannot escape headlines about russia back home as the special counsel's russia investigation continues to intensify. right before getting on air force one to head here to dav vos, he told reports that he wants to cooperate with robert mueller and he would be willing to sit for an in-person interview with the special counsel. his lawyers say that could happen sometime in the next two to three weeks but you're seeing a little bit of a walkback from the in-house lawyer. they were saying he was rushing to get to davos and he has a willingness to testify, but the lawyer tells nbc no terms have been negotiated just yet. back to you. three people are dead and 13 seriously hurt after a train went off the tracks overseas. the derailment happened on the outskirts of milan. high tallian firefighters have released footage of them pulling pass swrers from the twisted metal. the commuter train was approaching the station when it

11:18 am
the 20s like in lehigh and berks counties. and even there it's going to warm up. you can see the camera shaking a little bit. 39 for the high today, then 44 tomorrow, at least mid-50s saturday and sunday with average highs still around 40 degrees. take a look at some of those colder neighborhoods, berks, lehigh, north hampton counties. leonardsville at 26, americastown 27, ma kunggy 28, longa port, look at that. 26 degrees with bright sunshine at 11:00 a.m. that's cold. and nazareth at 28 degrees right now. and we have wind on top of that. we've got sustained winds of 15 to 20 miles per hour out of the northwest, just the way those flags are blowing, and so it feels like it's 18 in perkasie,
11:19 am
17 in coatesville, 23 in philadelphia, a big 5 in mount poconos. this is the coldest day, tonight is going to be the coldest night with those northwest winds. the winds are going to die down tonight, it's going to be practically calm by tomorrow morning. but we're going to be seeing the temperatures drop into the 20s. then as we go into later tomorrow, tomorrow night, the southerly winds start, the warm irrelevant air starts coming up, and we have that real nice day on saturday. but coming in from the west, we've got a cold front and by sunday morning there could be some widespread rain. we're not talking about heavy rain or thunderstorms like we saw with this last front, and it does look like it's going to last for several hours but generally be offshore by monday morning. so as we go through the day today and tomorrow we've got lots of sunshine tomorrow
11:20 am
chestnut hill 45, swanksville 42, alantown 40, vorhees 45, long port 41, dover at 45 degrees. and over the weekend, it's looking amazing. we've got a lot of sunshine on saturday, no rain at all. and sunday the rain chance is extremely high. so you have a pretty easy pick for going outdoors and not getting rained on. . . >> all right. up next, no monkey business here. two monkeys making headlines because of what they could mean for the future. the scientific success that's refreshing with no debate.
