5:02 am
he might have noticed. >> meteorologist: i will try but you are on the hook. 49 is your current temperature at central park. a little bit cooler but pretty mild, 49 central park. newark, 45 in montauk. winds on the light and variable all over the place in the tri-state. we had a lot of low clouds and drizzle, light rain was pulling away. now the rain is done. even the drizzle is done. cloudiness in the area, we will see more sunshine and warmer temperatures. not too worried about what is coming through right now. tomorrow there will be interesting things, this warm front will come through bringing a small chance of showers and a cold front follows with a chance of showers and storms. today you will see a partly cloudy sky, high temperature 62.

5:05 am
will not be on the winning side. >> john kasich was on the winning side at least in his home state of ohio beating trump comfortably and took all of the states delegates. his win is significant for two reasons. it is allows him to justify staying in the race and makes it difficult for trump to secure the delegates needed for the nomination before the convention. >> i thank the people of ohio. i love you. >> ted cruz said despite john kasich's when only twee to people, ted cruz and donald trump, have a shot at the nomination. >> america has a clear choice going forward. >> hillary clinton cemented her front runner status beating bernie sanders in florida, illinois, north carolina and ohio. clinton leads sanders narrowly in missouri.
5:06 am

5:08 am
juliet: high levels of lead were found in school buildings. teresa pre-always live with that story. saying this but it seems by lead in the water problem in newark is worse than originally they will begin to test 2,000 kids age numb one to 6. this has a lot of parents very concerned. in newark, information is a slow drip. resident are wondering if their children are safe to drink the water in the city. their concerns compounded by this message from the mayor who attempted to assuage fears in his state of the city address. >> student health is in jeopardy. there is nothing wrong with our water but there is something
5:09 am
re-change that infrastructure at the center of massive lead testing to occur in the school district's water supply. the health department and state department of environmental protection will test 17,000 students starting with 2,000 children ages numb one through 6. they will start with the youngest because they are the most vulnerable. studies have shown lead can seriously affect the developing brain. unusually high levels of lead were found in half of the district's schools. of normal lead levels are 15 b, some schools registered at 558 ppb. kids have been exposed to lead. the teachers union released these photos yesterday showing expired lead filters and at least we 10 schools. currently all sinks and drinking fountains have been shut off.

water until the problem is remedied. so much water that has been donated was donated by coca-cola and shop right and a lot of food banks but also a lot of it has come from new yorkers who are concerned about the future of these children. ben: thanks very much. and elementary school on long island is sitting across from a toxic waste site for decades. school officials and parents are just finding out about that. the department of environmental the site in jericho. a costume company does not use the cancer-causing chemicals left over from a prior business at that location. the state tec says only the ground water is contaminated, not the public drinking water. parents are not happy they were not notified sooner. >> we don't want our children on that field unless you can
5:11 am
them and they are safe. ben: the in contamination is limited to the industrial site. the school and neighborhood are more than likely not at risk. it is not definitive. school officials are not satisfied. they plan to do their own testing. much more still to come. we will go live to virginia as commuters figure out how to get to work in dc. imagine no subway. juliet: the entire metro system is shut down and negative be back up until tomorrow morning. we will get 60s today. >> meteorologist: here is where we start. 49 , chances are pretty good. southern clouds come in, more sunshine than anything, clouds later in the day, mild temperatures and the possibility
