8:04 am
from canada. that could trigger a few light rain showers this afternoon. this is the next one that will get you that snow possibilities coming up on sunday. what do we get out of it? sunday morning it will become cloudy. our temperatures are in the minimal range. sunday afternoon, breezy and cold. sticking to the grassy services. later on in the overnight hours, the temperatures drop more. we have periods of snow with a few inches possible. that is why you have to be concerned with the monday morning could mute. you may need to get something. i do not think that a snowblower will be necessary here it high temperature goes up to 59 degrees with some light
8:05 am
340 high on sunday. the first day of spring. then we have a big warm up. it will not stick around for long. warmer temperatures will follow. i tell you what, it sounds pretty typical for the most part. >> we are starting to see a couple of things here and there. let's talk about what is going on here. local lanes. a crash right but exit 49. southbound on the van wyck. an accident still out there really causing a backup. you want to watch out for about. we are also seeing a spill on the southbound highway. we will actually go outside to the west side highway. it will show you. southbound side is pretty
8:06 am
that spot. you will want to allow yourself a little extra time. our next picture will be of the george washington bridge. this is also the inbound side upper level. before the toll plaza, we have an accident. we have another accident in this area here. as you pass the accident, pretty much free. really not looking good for the george washington bridge. over a 30 minute delay at this point. alternate side is in effect. >> thank you very much. we have a lead situation. >> thousands will eventually be tested after high levels were found in the water. could this be another flint michigan situation?
8:07 am

8:08 am
those most susceptible to contamination. unusually high blood levels in half of the district schools. some children have gotten sick with lead poisoning. it is unclear if it came from the water at school. >> they knew a long time ago that the pipes were old. they should be checking on that. >> it comes after officials released a trove of data on thursday. it shows 12% of collected samples were above the federal lead levels. telling custodians to flush the fountains and sinks for 30 seconds a day. the epa recommends that process. about 10 minutes. leaded newark has been a concern for years. the mayor released a statement saying it is obvious that the
8:09 am
problem for at least 12 years, if not more. they deliberately -- they do think it is a full port decision not to inform the public. >> four states. all of these schools, the testing on them will begin tomorrow. everyone keeps talking about the fact that maybe this is the next flint michigan. parents are very concerned about that. that is the latest from newark. back to both of you. rosanna: teresa priolo. thanks a lot. >> the race for the president of the united states is getting very testy. it has gotten nasty, i have to say.
