4:34 am
but they say it is just typical of the typical night on route one by route 13. that is staggering to hear that people are routinely clock at a hundred miles an hour drunk or not drunk. >> absolutely staggering steve, thank you as always. 4:34. happening today we will have another chance to hear from the candidates who would like to be philadelphia's next mayor. the the news media is hosting a conversation to break down the role between the candidates or at least explain the differences between media and public. join conversation on twitter. this would be fun. everyone can join in using hash tag aldialive where you can submit questions. this will start tonight at 6:00. new jersey senator booker will be making a visit to the academy charter school in camden this morning. plans to speak to students and even answer their questions with ed case. booker's appearance comes days have the announcement that camden will be turning over leadership of five of the most struggling schools to charter organizations, come september.

4:36 am
deal then regular cable? we will look close at the trend, coming up.
4:37 am
4:38 am
i have made a few mistake. >> kind of like alex holley there did you see this movie over weekend, animated movie
4:39 am
home find a home at the top of the weekend box office. alien adventure took in 54 million-dollar, not too shabby, coming in second place new will ferrell kevin h art comedy get hard with 34.6 million. third placings to the divergent series: the insurgent with 22. fourth spot belongs to the new cinderella with 17.5 million-dollar. rounding out top five critically acclaimed indy horror film it follows which took in four million-dollar. viewers cutting the cord at record rates opting for subscription streaming services over traditional cable packages. experts say many see it as better alternative to cain inter faith is appealing and many prefer images for the most part you don't to have rent a dvr but there are things you need to consider before you turn in your cable box. >> the the danger is when you cut the cord bundles can be a good deal for consumers right because you get a lot of things for one price.
4:40 am
once you break that apart and you start adding in little things ala cart, it can add up. some people will look and say i love tv, i like a lot of chapels and cable is still the best deal for me. >> a host of different services across dozens of devices it comes down to what you want to watch. you need to have sports channels. you can taylor your set up to your viewing habits and likely even save some money. move over super models there are some new runway divas in town on four legs, california dogs dressing up for fashion show or being carried down seriously applause all the way around. nicely done at the oakland animal shelter more than 20 dogs participated in this event. people cheered them on free and sponsored by help of pet rescue group pals and they had a vegan lunch, music and crafts for the kid. >> not everybody knows to come down to the shelters.
4:41 am
some people have a fix idea of what a shelter animal will be like so we want to expand their thinking and welcome them in. >> the shelter is hoping that this event will help get dogs into new homes. our own sue serio was there right in our own neck of the woods. how about rethinking cameras in the cockpit should we be putting cameras in the cockpits of our airplanes. could they prevent a tragedy or would they make commercial flights more dangerous as critics argue we will have the debate in the wake of the
4:42 am
4:43 am
4:44 am
seriously, oh, no, snow, again. sue, i just want to adjust my eye balls, this cannot be march 30th and that is what is falling will in olde city. >> it is march 30th and it is happening. you know we tell you this every year we have recorded snowfall in april. in fact, we have reports in history of times when it accumulated in april, i know i know. but that certainly won't happen this april. look at this we have got green and white on ultimate doppler so in the case of the city here we are seeing snow flakes flying around, in the upper atmosphere. it is above freezing here but that is what happens as the
4:45 am
presip goes through layers of the atmosphere. we will look at ultimate doppler and we will see lehigh valley probably getting flurries flying around maybe some drizzle or light rain in delco, in the northern part of the new castle will county and in delaware and maybe across the river in new jersey, and around millville other parts of the cumberland, salem counties gloucester and camden counties as well. so that is precipitation situation, it the is cold up in the mountains, we have got 28 in mount pocono. thirty-four in allentown. 33 degrees in lancaster. just a little bit above freezing, 35 here in the city at the airport and 39 degrees in wildwood. wind speeds, not bad 9 miles an hour they are out of the southwest so that is good. the it means we will get slightly milder temperatures today. 14 miles an hour the wind in wildwood. it makes it feel like the the 20's in a lot of places. if you are going out or if your kid do have have school this week make sure they are
4:46 am
bundled up again at the bus stop because it still feels like winter out there at least this morning. we have visibility issues in some places getting that precipitation including allentown where you can only see half a mile. so it felt like winter this weekend with a 41-degree high on saturday crazy, and 46 degrees yesterday, it it was that chill in the air that we just can't seem to get rid of but we will in the seven day forecast. we have temps in the 50's today, and tomorrow, and on wednesday. then we will inch in the 60 as on thursday and friday. we are not going to stay there they but when it gets cooler we will be back in the 50's, including easter sunday when we will get to the high of 55 degrees. the is there your weather authority forecast, lets get to traffic on this monday morning and we have a look the at i-95 southbound. this problem well, because of construction the on ramp from cottman avenue the the the ramp is closed until about
4:47 am
6:00 o'clock this morning. taking a look at the schuylkill expressway eastbound east of south street well, it looks just fine just a couple of cars on the road but volume starting to pick up a little bit. then we will go over to ewing new jersey, pennington road, a pole came down and all lanes blocked in both directions so route 29 is what you will need to get by there. finally pennsylvania turnpike eastbound approaching bensalem we have construction there but only the right lane is block karen? >> thanks, sue. it is 4:47. current and former intelligence officials say national security agency considered a abandoning its very controversial program to collect and store the call in record of americans years ago. that consideration came just months before that linked edward snowden revealed all that was going on. many believe that cost out weighed the program's counter terrorism benefits but after the the leak nsa leaders strongly defended the phone record program.
4:48 am
congress will be deciding whether to renew or modify nsa phone record collection with the law authorizing it, expires come june. recent plane crashes are stirring debate about whether or not cameras should be put in cockpits. some are arguing that could provide very critical fur for investigate thors, many pilots don't like this idea. brian yenis has details. >> reporter: crash of germanwings flight 9525 reinvigorated debate over whether cameras should be installed in cockpits. many are against cameras they see it the as a invasion of privacy. imagine a camera recording everything you say and do at your desk. they argue video recordings could be made public orland on line after an accident. pilots say current voice and data recorders that closely machine for all audio and data are sufficient. >> you have a recording of everything that the the airplane is doing, every inning is will switch that is thrown, every change in
4:49 am
