tv   Fox 29 Morning News at 5a  FOX  February 23, 2015 5:00am-6:01am EST

5:00 am
malls across the country are stepping up security after a new threat from terrorist. where one mall they are targeting is located. plus after a break from the cold another temperature plunge. and it could cause some problems across, for your morning commute. can you say black ice? sue can. so can bob. they will tell what you to avoid. >> we have been saying those two words quite a bit this season. the last year was all about the snow this year has been much more about the temperatures. we will see them plunge again, we will tell you how cold it will get coming up lauren. >> sue famous word from last night and the the oscar goes to, big winners, losers and all of the moments you might have missed while were you sleeping chris murphy, we have them right here on fox 29. good day, it is monday february 23rd, 2015. >> with small kids, sue serio, you getting to to the movies
5:01 am
maybe once or twice a year. i saw american snipper. >> okay. >> i saw boyhood. i don't think either of which won much of last night. >> but patricia arquette who we know was excellent in boyhood she did win best supporting actress. >> yes. >> good for her. >> it is a five out of the ten? a winner, i don't think so. it will get cold again. we enjoyed our 40 degrees yesterday, 44, 45 degrees, and then now it is 34. now we're still above freezing, but we're going to see the temperature continue to drop throughout the day instead of going up, after the sun comes up. so northwesterly wind at 8 miles an hour makes it feel like 27 degrees outside and some other temperatures that are below freezing to the the north and west of us, at the above freezing to the south of us, so what we will see is those temperatures falling through the the 20's all afternoon, wind picking up, to gusting, maybe 25, or 30 miles an hour and then plunging down to 6 degrees, tonight. so another cold air mass is
5:02 am
going to be in place but, of course, the the question is, how long will it stick around. we will have the the answer for you as the seven day forecast. all that is just ahead budd bob kelly, we have issues shall we say this morning don't we. >> right out of the gate we have an issue in levittown, pennsylvania, bucks county here where police activity it is cordoning off an area of levittown parkway right at route 13. it is in that shopping plaza there where we have a wal-mart, homet, is there a mike's gun shop. we will bring you more on that situation in a moment. our jenny joyce has been on the way there. levittown parkway is closed just off of route 13 in tulleytown. outside we will go again, that sunshine is great it it did a lot of melting yesterday but anything in a lick wood form when that sun went down isized over this morning. watch out for the intersections, fit looks wet there is certainly that icy glaze, the sidewalks could bized over. the kids have to walk from the sidewalk across the snow hump to get to the school bus this morning. the icy conditions, every where. not just the on the streets
5:03 am
but also on the parking lots and the platforms for all of our mass transit operators here, the regional rail lines running with no delays but septa says beware of the parking lots that could be slippery. that 15th and locust street situation that happened yesterday, the the road is opened, and patco is stopping at the 15th street station, so normal services expect there throughout the morning rush. chris and lauren, back over to you. lets talk about those cold temperatures and the roads out there. >> steve keeley at the tacony palmyra bridge with a look at this, good morning. >> reporter: we're on the side street before the the last toll plaza and has right turn. i wanted to show you how bad things are. this is the the stop sign i was talking about this road in both lanes is a sheet of ice. so if you are pulling off of route seven three, you can slide out of control. if you are going more than 2 miles an hour before this stop sign you will slide on to route 73. this is typical of everything that we found driving around this morning.
5:04 am
this is all a sheet of ice. you can probably tell by reflection. i almost just fell walking over here but everything is ice every where. and then look at route 73 it doesn't get any better because we have the run off into the right lane so the right lane on route 73 is a sheet of ice and you can slide right into a telephone pole reallies i. left lane by the the median that is where snow is also plowed that melted and ran off. left lane has a sheet of ice in the far left part of that. it is treacherous every where. >> another big concern is refreezing. temperatures will whoever around freezing, maybe lower. it will be very cold for the morning commute. we will have crews in the the five county region monitoring roads, highways expressways, for any refreezing or standing water and address those issues as they come up. the motorist should, you know take their time in the morning. >> i just went out extra early and take it slow. >> reporter: worried about
5:05 am
freezing, that you go and then big potholes in the road. >> my tires i feel like philly get a lot of revenue from tires. people buying tires. >> reporter: so potholes, another concern and also hit one of them. there is one of those right here in the the street too. so what you are looking at here is a sewer drain that is covered by plowed snow. so that is why all of the snow melt really had in where to go but across all of the road. that is why there is so much water in the roads in a lot of spots. the it didn't go down any sewers because it could not go town any sewers because they are block. we will spin around and show you toll plaza, tacony palmyra bridge where burlington county bridge commission has cut the the speed in half on both tacony pal will my use and burlington bristol bridge down to 25 miles an hour because of icing conditions on the bridges themselves. so, big problems, and we saw a fatal accident down the shore in middletown ship on north wildwood boulevard over the weekend, on a smaller bridge an overpass, where seven cars
5:06 am
and a chain reaction crash all piled up and one of the first people in, one of the first subsequent got out of the car and then hit and killed by one of the following cars that slid out of control into him and police in middletown ship told me it was black ice that caused that. look at this, here's a typical thing, path holes, every where, just in this drive way, and then even the the potholes are full of ice. so, watch out. there is so many problems to talk about today. the just go slower and or you will end up in the ought owe body shop and in an emergency room. chris and lauren. >> two places you don't want to be. >> in. >> 5:06 is the time. weather could be to blame for a transformer explosion in center city this happened at 15th and locust last night. police say the explosion caused high levels of carbon monoxide, to seep into the air, that led to evacuation from his nearby buildings. >> i was right on the sidewalk. >> there was one loud one that blew manhole cover off and that came off you could see smoke and fire down there and then two smaller explosions,
5:07 am
shortly thereafter, after a mina part. due to the recent cold weather, and melt, today it could be affecting electrical, water, gas services because it does have an effect. >> he mentioned the electrical and peco is sending more crew toss that scene today to try to find the cause of the blast. police say one of the nearby buildings had a pipe, in its sprinkler system that burst yesterday, because of the weather and that is why they think this may be weather-related as well. you can stay on top of the latest information weather-wise and road conditions on our web site at my fox and click on the weather an traffic tabs. three fire fighters are recovering from minor injuries after responding to this fire, in charleston township chester county. the fire started in the fireplace of the home on highland hill lane. injuries include minor burns and a ankle injury. crews say the the fire was extensive when they arrived. >> the fire had a major head start on fire fighters tonight and it simply was through the roof before we could even ever
5:08 am
catch up to it and get them out. >> that fire has been ruled an accident. security is on high alert at malls across america following terroristic threats. >> so this movies in response to a video posted on line by a somalia militant group, with links to al qaeda. in the video, a masked narrater urgees muslims to attack shopping malls in western countries. the mall of america in minnesota is specifically singled out. the the department of home land security says there is no credible evidence suggest an attack at malls, however, host of the dhs says americans need to be aware of their surroundings. >> i'm sure that security at this particular mall will be enhanced, in ways visible and not visible but it also involves public vigilance and public awareness. if you see something, say something, it has to be more than just a slogan. >> the mall of america is the busiest shopping center in the world, and it attracts more than 40 million people each
5:09 am
year. >> i'm surprised by that. when i go to king of prussia i never can find a parking space, always crowded. >> king of prussia is always up there mall of america is so big that they have an amusement park inside the thing. but they need indoor space in minute so the because it is what negative 30 for much of the winter. >> and no wonder they have ride for the the kid, they have to keep everyone busy. >> you go stir craze any weather like that. we're getting more frigid weather, we are all getting hit with this arctic blast. i looked at extended models that go out about a month here and it looks like we're getting this arctic pattern for almost a month, now, well into march. >> we will get one day in the 40's and then back down in the highs in the 20's, and as you will see coming up later in the seven day forecast. we have 34 degrees in philadelphia right now but it feels like 27 thanks to the wind chill. 8 miles an hour wind. wind are not too extreme norris the temperature but both of those will be
5:10 am
changing, as the day goes along even after sunrise at 6:43 this morning. we will see temperatures continue to drop throughout the the day see we're in the the 30's every where except for the poconos mountains where it is 14 degrees right now. we have whipped chills in the 20's but this is your planner for the the rest of the day. the cant rule out a flurry or two this morning as our cold front comes through and that is what will cause temperatures to drop throughout the rest of the day. so icy spots around in some places this morning, winds picking up, temperatures drop, so by the time we are normally reaching our high temperature we will be in the teens later this afternoon, believe me you will feel the difference on your monday morning. so that is your weather authority forecast, seven day is just ahead, bob kelly is here right now. >> good morning sue. 5:10 on this monday morning. an accident popped up on the northeast extension at southbound, south of quakertown. between quakertown and land dale blocking one of the lanes updating our situation here in

5:12 am
hour, you hit that off ramp there and then again any of that run off. the off ramps are bent. so the run off, the water will run across the travel lane to get into the drain. that run off will leave that fine icy glaze for us this morning. so caution flags are flying. mass transit at the moment running with no delays. stay there we will grab a cup of coffee and come r

5:19 am
advisory already in effect and it stays with us until 10:00 in the morning tomorrow. but as wind chills expected to be ten to 15 degrees below zero once those wind get cranked up and interest is all part of the cold front that the last part starting to move to the area we could see a flurry or two as this last part moves through and then as we look at the the future cast over the the next couple of days, lieutenant of sunshine during the day today and tomorrow. a few clouds here and there. some lake effect moisture trying to get the here but it doesn't. even with the cold front on wednesday, we don't see any precipitation, in fact no snow in the forecast until maybe the the weekend again. so 45 was the the high yesterday, the normal high, average high is 46 degrees, and lets see where we are headed today. temperatures will be dropping, you see the arrow there. temperatures are falling through the the 20's throughout the afternoon which puts wind chills in the the teens for most of the day and then 26 degrees is our high tomorrow. now not quite as harsh on
5:20 am
wednesday but then we're back to the arctic air on thursday, and friday and saturday, once again, we have a chance of snow in the afternoon that could change over to rain as warmer air comes in but that is still aways away. we will nail down that as we get closer to the time. just don't put that parka away bob kelly. >> got the right on my chair. 5:20. good morning, everybody. here's an example of thized over conditions. harbison avenue look at the right lane here. do you see glare in the right turning lane. that is obviously some of that melt ago this occurred yesterday with the sun. we all loved it. but anything that was still in liquid form when the sun went down last night is frozen over. a lot of that left or right turning lanes you will see the icy conditions. and another example here on i-95 at girard avenue in the construction zone. we have plowed the snow but there is no shoulder. so again that pile of snow is in that left or right lane,
5:21 am
little bit of melting occurred yesterday but that fine glaze is out here in both left and right lanes all around the region. in upper merion a down tree blocking montgomery avenue right at matsonford road, a crash south on the extension south of the quakertown interchange, and then police activity barricade situation up here in the shopping plaza levittown shopping plaza, so levittown parkway is block at route 13. or wise major roadways in the bad at all speedometer readings in the the 50's. you know on and off a ramps were dropping a degree every 15 or 20 minutes. temperatures are on the down side and pretty much again anything that was left over yesterday in that liquid form is melted this morning. i should say is frozen this morning. in problems at all coming from new jersey, septa says look out, although we are operating with no delays on the regional rails. the platforms and parking lots could be slippery. that same melting refreezing, obviously occurred in the parking lots on the steps and
