>> ♪ >> "action news." delaware valley's leading news program. with matt o'donnell, tamala edwards, karen rogers and meteorologist, david murphy. >> ♪ >> good morning. it's 4:00 a.m. on this tuesday february 9th. "action news" is on the air early to bring you the latest on this morning's snow. >> taking a live look outside from our sky6 camera at the ben franklin bridge. roads are clear but more snow he is expected throughout the day for the tri-state area. >> authorities are investigating former eagles running back lesean mccoy in connection with a brawl at a philadelphia nightclub. >> voters have already begun casting ballots in new hampshire's first in the nation primary. we'll have a live report from manchester. >> let's start talking about that worm many. live team coverage throughout the morning. let's head over right now to
dave murphy and karen rogers. good morning. >> all right, guys, well, we are starting out fairly dry across the region. we had a little bit of very light snow overnight. there's not much on the ground most neighborhoods. a lot of you just looking at a coating to half inch so far. a hint of more coming up out of baltimore but nothing super active. last night we had in the evening hours and overnight hours a little bit of light snow that popped through. just about everybody saw some of this. it started out as rain and changed over to snow as temperatures dropped last night but again low impact stuff and anywhere where the roads were pretreated i don't think you'll find anything on those roads this morning other than just moisture. 32 degrees in philadelphia currently though and 32 in wilmington. so, if you're in and around millville up and down the i-95 corridor this afternoon points north you have temperatures below freezing which means if you had anything fall on untreated surfaces like sidewalks or side streets maybe some secondaries, yes, there could be a little bit an icy or a slick sheen on there so be careful of that.
generally speaking this looks like fairly low impact situation. winter weather advisory in affect across most of the region. there's a warning still in effect in delaware county chester county and back towards lancaster county. the warning that was up over most of the immediate region has been downgraded to an advisory. in most areas only going for about two to 4 inches of snow. most of the accumulation is going to be later into the afternoon and tonight. we have issues with coastal flooding. could be some moderate flooding. on the bus stop this morning we're going for cloudy skies. light snow is possible here or there but i think most of are you going to get away without a lot of that during the morning bus ride. 30 degrees by 6:00 a.m., 31 by 8:00 a.m. as we roll through the day we'll get well above freezing which means any snow that comes in during the mid to late afternoon hours probably just melts on road surfaces because temperatures should remain well above freeing. our shy 38 today. a little more snow tonight
karen and that could cause a bit more of a headache especially after sundown as temperatures drop. we'll have details coming up from accuweather. >> dave, you want to hop in your car and warm it up you might need to scrape off the windshield a little bit before you head outer. looking live in downingtown this is chester county looking live at the 30 bypass approaching business route 30. roads a little bit wet right here, maybe a little bit of snow on the grassy surfaces and that's about it as you're heading out. let's let's see what it looks like on the roosevelt boulevard this morning. we have a quiet ride 'cause it's only 4 o'clock in the morning but we're looking live here at fox street. mostly just wet. no signs of any snow right here so you're really good to go. how about another view. we'll check out the schuylkill expressway and look at that near the vine street expressway and we're seeing traffic here moving fine. we had a disabled vehicle here that has since cleared and again the road here just wet. you want to watch for your ramps, your overpasses, your bridges. you know they get icy first but for the most part we've got a pretty good looking ride right now. how about your area bridges.
slow it down on the bridges. in fact we have 35 miles an hour speed restrictions in anticipation of some of the snowfall that we'll see he today. looking live on the ben, we're looking good. the speed restrictions in effect here on the ben, the betsy ross and the commodore barry bridge so slow it down as you head out. no big problems out there right now. when a snow shower does come through you'll have to watch at that point it will get slick but for now you're good to go, matt and tam. >> thank you karen. erin o'hearn is live along ridge avenue in roxborough where some most rifts could be slipping and sliding later today. hey, erin. hi, guys. i see a few cars with their windshields covered with a light snow. we did get some minor accumulations last night. not a lot going on right now. that's what we expected from this storm system just to have these lulls. let's take a look at video of penndot. they were out at midnight treating area roads with salt, 300 plows are out monitoring right now road conditions and
they have 106 tons of salt on hand. crews expect wet snow, which for them is actually easier to move. so, that's goo good news. wednesday morning could be tougher. temperatures will drop overnight making conditions very ice z as you know it is much more difficult to navigate icy roads than snowy roads. also to help with preps the city of philadelphia will deploy its contingent of vehicles to salt and plow streets so because of that sanitation trucks were converted for that purpose and today's trash and recycling pickup is canceled. so, residents are asked to hold off until next tuesday. however, no snow emergency has been declared which means parking in philadelphia is as normal. but back here live... it is a little cold out this morning so heating up your car ahead of time is a good idea. roads look very clear right now but be careful because
that snow could sniping o sneakn you throughout the day. >> let's switch to annie mccormick live in fairfax delaware. she's got conditions there. good morning, annie. >> reporter: good morning, tam. herwe have some snow left over from last night and it's powdery and nice slow. hopefully if more comes our way maybe it will look like, that maybe a couple inches so the kids can play with it. looking at the roadways here, we're at 202 and murphy, they're clear. like david said you'll mostly see moisture at this point and cars are having no prob bless. this is video from the snow falling overnight. this is in wilmington delaware. downtown at fourth and market. deldot has been preparing for this snowfall. they started doing that last night with brining operations around the area. they also have a number of trucks that were working throughout the night and now are on stand buy an standby.
in there's a heavy accumulation during the morning commute time they have a number of contractors that are on standby. i can see some of those contractors circling around. back out here live it feels great, it's cool but if that snow does come our way it sounds like they are prepared out here and if you're driving into delaware like we were on 95 you're going to see those warning signs about icy patches particularly on bridges and overpasses. for now reporting live in fairfax delaware, annie mccormick, channel6 "action news." matt. >> send us pictures and videos of what you're seeing today. e-mail us at join the action 6abc.com or use #6abcaction on social media. >> ♪ >> new this morning's a crash injured two people including a two-year-old little boy. this happened near bridge street at 11:45 last night. investigators say a utility truck was starting a turn when the car crashed head on into
the truck. crews had to pull the 36-year-old driver out of the car and a 25-year-old female passenger an two-year-old little boy were in there, they were shane up but okay. the driver of the truck was not seriously injured. >> former eagles running back lesean mccoy is under investigation in connection with a nightclub brawl involving three off duty philadelphia police officers. the incident occurred at recess lounge in olde city early sunday morning. video sent in by an "action news" viewer appears to show the aftermath. two of the officers went to the hospital with injuries ranging from broken ribs to some skull fractures. >> first complainant sustained very severe injuries in terms of his eye socket, broken nose, broken rib, i believe some hand injuries and possibly even some skull injuries and the second complainant as well was sustained a laceration above the eye. >> serious injuries. this one just a basic, you know, fistfight. this was an all-out beat down
from all accounts. >> "action news" reached out to mccoy's agent. he says no comment right now. "action news" is not naming the victims or three other suspects involved until any charges are filed. >> turning now to dave murphy talk about the snow an all day event so even if there's a lull there could still be some coming. >> i think what you'll find is during the day it's little pops of light snow and because temperatures are going to be rising in a couple hours over freezing most should melt on roads during the day. the bigger issue should be later this afternoon and tonight as temperatures dip again. storm tracker6 live double scan shows you that we don't have much happening out there actively. if we go in tighter there was a little bit of light snow that came through overnight. right now all we've got is a little sprinkle down by cape may. if you look to the south and west of us there is indication of a little bit more snow beginning to build in but again anything that we see this morning is probably going to be on the light side and what we had overnight has really only amounted to about a coating to perhaps a half inch in most neighborhoods and
even though temperatures have dipped a little bit below freezing in a lot of areas, anything that was pretreated almost certainly was able to handle that just fine. it would be untreated surfaces and side roads that you might have an issue on where the light snow happened to stick a little bit. as we take a look outside, we have cloudy skies this morning. it's going to be a little bit breezy as you step outside and certainly as we go a little later into the morning. right now you've got winds in the upper single digits in most of the immediate region. temperature currently is 32 degrees in philadelphia so again treated surfaces probably fine this morning. but anything that wasn't treated yesterday might be a little bit slick especially sidewalks and driveways and maybe some side streets so be careful of that but we've had very little snow overnight so not really that big of a deal. winds running at 9 miles per hour currently giving you a wind chill of 24 so bundle up. future tracker6 showing you that between now up until about 9 o'clock for the rest of the rush hour there may be a little bit more snow trying to push up from the south again. this should be on the light
side. temperatures will still be down near the freezing mark up through 9 o'clock, though, so be careful on untreated surfaces but obviously most of the area probably okay for the morning rush. then we move in later into the afternoon. that's where we start to see a little bit more snow popping in. notice how it is changing over to rain down south. temperatures even in through reading and down to philadelphia will be above freezing by 3 o'clock, so the likelihood is that this melts on most road surfaces as we get later into the afternoon up until 6 o'clock those numbers begin to drop again and that's where we might start having a freeze-up on those untreated surfaces and then later in the evening hours the snow begins to break down and this latest model run overnight shows there's not a whole lot happening overnight up to 6 o'clock when our winter weather advisory officially expires. could be that it expires before then but of course temperatures will be down again overnight and so there is the possibility of a freeze-up for anything that does come in late in the overnight hours. what are we expecting? generally speaking two to for inches across the center portion of the region.
one to two elsewhere down the shore with rain mixing in. a little area in chester county, perhaps delaware county that could go four plus in some spots. temperatures right now are cool, 31 degrees by 8 o'clock. you can see how we climb to 38 and we spend most of the afternoon above freezing. hopefully this is good for any of that snow that comes in later on. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast today's high 38, periods of light to moderate snow. only totaling about two to 4 inches by the time it knocks off late tonight probably after midnight. then mostly cloudy tomorrow, 40 degrees is the high, another snow shower or flurry can't be ruled out but low impact stuff tomorrow. and then brisk and colder on thursday with a flurry around and a high of just 39. after that most of our story really involves temperatures. 29 is your high on friday. even colder on saturday, 24. there could be a snow shower in the morning on saturday. otherwise it's just cold raw day and look at the overnight lows this weekend. 7 degrees is what you'll wake up to on sunday morning.
sunday afternoon only 22 for a high. that's a cold valentine's day monday morning president's day we'll be waking up to about 9 degrees in the morning but we he do improve to 32 in the afternoon so a couple of really raw days coming for the weekend. >> okay, thank you, david. >> yeah. >> it's 4:13 and coming up next on "action news," the first few ballots in the new hampshire primary has been cast. it is looking good for bernie sanders and john kasich. >> later police in delaware see an alert. wawa employee helped flab a pair of men wanted for a string of robberies. karen. >> roads are wet in south philadelphia. looking pretty good there. we'll take you to 309 see what it looks like and hop into new jersey and talk about flooding coming up. >> time oscar events are getting under way. nominees posed for a photo at their preawards luncheon when "action news" comes back we'll show it to you. >> ♪
>> welcome back. taking a live look on sky6 across the platt bridge. kind of quittor. it's clear but over the day you'll see moments of snow. >> karen you and david have been saying the evening commute is the one that's the one to look out for right. >> i think when temperatures drop below freezing that's when it could get tricky even tomorrow morning as well. right now the roads are mostly just wet and it's not too bad. i don't think it will be tough when you goat a snow shower that will be popping through. let's check the suburbs and see what it looks like. looking lie in fort washington. 309 approaching the pennsylvania turnpike no problems on 309. it looks wet. not seeing any problems coming down from quakertown or montville. we only got a dusting of snow in the overnight hours so not a lot. on the turnpike no construction so looking good on 309 and the pennsylvania turnpike. let's hop into new jersey and see what it looks like on 42 northbound. i was on 42 this morning for a little bit and no big problems. the road mostly just damp. no snowfall coming down right
now. very light volume because it's early outer there. if you're concerned about driving this is certainly a good time to head out. i think the tricky thing about today is the snow showers are going to be intermittent so it's really only going to be tough when that snow shower is coming down on you. right in you you're looking good. in brooklawn camden county we've got flooding causing a problem here and route 130 is blocked at the brooklawn circle. stick to 295 as your alternate. flooding continues to be a problem both ways in logan township right here on 130 just south of 322. it's blocking one lane so traffic is at least getting by. let's take a look at storm tracker6 live double scan, the one thing you note from this is how disorganized this system is. we have two areas of low pressure. some bringing rain down the our south and snow out to the west. we're going to see some intermittent snow showers still expecting about two to 4 inches of snow overall between today, later on tonight and in the overnight hours, matt and tam. >> thanks, karen. the voting has already begun in new hampshire's first in the nation primary and two candidates not considered the front runners have taken an early lead.
abc's kenneth moton is live in manchester with a look at how things are going right now. good morning, kenneth. >> reporter: good morning, matt. all eyes are on new hampshire today. overnight some candidates were in reflection mode while others were on the attack. it's finally here, new hampshire primary day. >> i want this job because i love this country. >> reporter: call it a presidential candidate full court press in the granite state one campaign event after another even during a snowstorm. >> ♪ >> reporter: bernie sanders supporters filling the bern at a late night concert. >> create what i call a political revolution. >> unbelievable. unbelievable. [cheers and applause] >> i want to thank you reporter: overnight gop frontrunner donald trump eager for a win. >> i don't care what happens, no matter what, this has been the most amazing experience of my life and you people have made it that way. >> reporter: trump calling his final rally before the
primary a love fest. there was no love between the candidates on the campaign trail. the attacks kept coming. >> donald trump organizes his campaign around disparaging people. >> i think being a progressive means you want to make real progress. the last thing we need is promises that can't be met. >> reporter: this morning three small precincts in new hampshire cast their ballots. the historic dixville notch was the first to open the polls to its nine voters. with all three precincts reporting sanders beating clinton an three way gop tie. >> i think people want to know authenticity today more than they ever have. >> reporter: the latest polls have been up and down but trump and sanders have kept consistent leads here in the state of new hampshire. the candidates have started to turn their attention to their south carolina primary next weekend, tam. reporting live in manchester new hampshire, kenneth moton channel6 "action news." >> they'll do this one kenneth

"action news" anchor monica malpass is also in new hampshire through today's primary elect. look out for her reports tonight on "action news." she'll be posting realtime updates on her facebook and twitter pages. it's exciting to be there and to watch it. >> yes. 4:20 now and it will be a warm sunny day in denver today where broncos fans will celebrate their victory. >> a former university of pennsylvania professor convicted of killing his wife is facing a parole hearing. david. >> temperatures down around the freezing mark in most neighborhoods this morning. dress the kids warmly. it is going to be breezy and cool this afternoon even though we'll get into the upper 30's. we'll have your day planner forecast coming up next and i'll get you to the airport for those of you traveling. remarkable things are happening at your local acme.

the team's players, coaches, the city's mayor and the governor of colorado will be in attendance and it will be a fabulous day in denver, 53 degrees, sunshine from sky to sky. >> wow. >> they're lucky. >> nice for them. >> you know, the weather is not so bad at the moment. i think the tough thing about today is that the snow showers are going to be occasional. it's only going to be tough when you're under one. we're not under one right now. this is delaware county, the blue route at i-95. the roadway here is just damp. slight accumulation maybe on some of the grassy surfaces. we had a little gusting of snow he that came through but you can see no problems traveling at the moment. in christiana the ramp from highway one southbound to i-95 northbound is blocked for construction until 5:00 a.m. but with any of your ramps and overpasses you want to watch 'cause it's usually particularly slippery. they tend to ice up first. the mass transit is all on time so far, dave. >> light snow showers overnight only delivered about a coating to maybe a half inch in most places so that's all we've got on the ground so far and we're in a lull right now. temperatures are going to climb, too, so once we get
past 9 o'clock, any snow showers might be a little problematic on untreated surfaces by 9:00 but after there we get above freezing. 11:00, 35, noon 37, a high of 38 by 2 o'clock. any snow he that does happen to pop up in through here will probably melt on most road surfaces butter stuff that comes in later in the afternoon when we start to dip a little bit that could be a little bit more problematic. if you have to get out there and run errands today, though, just check the radar on your storm tracker6 app or on your smartphone or on 6abc.com and if you have a break you can probably get out there and do it because again temperatures above freezing for a good portion of the afternoon. tam and matt. >> okay, thank you, david. this is coming from our delaware news room. state police have arrested a pair of men after a string of weekend robberies. early sunday morning police were called to the wawa on pulaski highway in bear for a robbery he in progress. an off duty employee was in the parking lot when he knows add white van move up. he noticed it was the same van that had been used at a robbery on the store on friday.
responding troopers arrested nost and cagle. they were also accused of robbing the valero gas station and a dollar general in bear. >> happening today a former university of pennsylvania professor who was convicted of killing his wife faces a parole hearing. rafael robb is making another appeal to try to get out of prison early. he's serving a five to 10 year sentence for the beating death of ellen robb at their home in 2006. montgomery county district attorney kevin steele joined the victim's family yesterday to insist that robb serve his full 10 year sentence. >> ellen is serving a lifetime sentence in her grave and this man must fulfill his entire sentence of what is a ridiculously minimal plea bargained sentence of only 10 years. >> the d.a.'s office notified the parole board of its objection to robb's early release.
