5:01 am
and generally speaking we're going with sun mixing with clouds as we go through the day. it is cold to start out. we're at 32 degrees, the freezing mark in allentown, 38 reading, 34 trenton, just 36 degrees in both wilmington and philadelphia. 36 in millville and 39 in cape may. so, coats this morning. not a lot of wind out there. and chilly conditions obviously. 37 degrees by 7 o'clock. by noon, we get a little bit better. 47 degrees with sun and clouds. and by 3 o'clock, 51. that will be your high today before we zip back to 46 by 5 o'clock and by 7 o'clock, 42. if you're dressing the kids for the bus stop this morning you want to make sure you show 'em or dress 'em against the chill. you don't chill the kids, you dress them. 36 degrees -- karen was all over that. 36 degrees on the bus stop in philadelphia. some suburbs could go down to about 31 degrees. the only other issue we have out there is a possible situation with patchy fog but right now i'm not seeing a lot of this. the visibilities officially look good. a little bit of fog in through here, maybe lehigh valley, montgomery, chester, delaware

you can see they're starting to let traffic by right now and that construction clearing out pretty nicely. here's a live look at 295 in bellmawr, camden county. overnight construction is cleared here. no delays. i wouldn't be surprised to see a few more accidents today, though. whenever you have a little ice on the windshield you could have a few slick spots on the road as well so be careful, matt. >> will do. thank you, karen. breaking right now investigators are on the scene of a shooting at a restaurant near a mall in lawrenceville, mercer county. police have closed off the restaurant and the parking lot as they search for evidence.
