vehicles there we saw earlier a vehicle that was between the median and that has been cleared, but what we have going on is you're looking at the backup, eastbound on the schuylkill expressway, going in to the city, right. so that is the the left-hand side of the screen. they are letting lanes through it was temporarily block. they have cleared the vehicle but it was a scary sight there seeing it strad that he will concrete median strip in the middle. emergency vehicles are still responding as you can see. traffic is slowly starting to get by but it ace a huge backup eastbound on the schuylkill expressway. they had within lane block westbound and it looks like at least two lanes get by westbound and it is in the as slow going that way but i say again this was an accident on the schuylkill expressway eastbound near montgomery and it is, slowing traffic down considerably. travel speeds near the accident are not great

4:19 am
the it is a new year, new pattern for our weather and you have to get used to those colder temperatures. as farrah as precipitation is concern there is a lot to the south, down in georgia, the the carolina coast but nothing for us to be concerned about. not even the lake effect snow, which is what you see up here around buffalo and east of lake on tear yes as well, that is an indication of the cold air that is coming in but we don't expect any of those flurries to reach us, today, there is a chance though, that you could see a snow flurry or two tonight with just a few flakes flying around. the just flurries, just a flurry. 37 degrees in pottstown. thirty-seven in allentown. thirty in mount pocono. forty-one is your current temperature in philadelphia we're in the 30's in lancaster, wilmington, dover, millville at 39 at the moment. and wind are starting to pick up a little will bit at 9 miles an hour out of the west in philadelphia, that makes it feel colder. so here we are with our average high of 41, we were so farrah above average last week for christmas, that it was
4:20 am
crazy, a and new we have been still above average the past couple days even though it is chillier with 52 degrees, three days in a row, tuesday, wednesday and on new years eve. today we don't expect to get out of the 40's, 44 or so for our high temperature, 43 tomorrow and then 45 on sunday. we're still above average but feeling more like wintertime and then we will get the a blast of cold air on monday and tuesday, and tuesday morning's temperatures will be about 21 degrees when we all get together at this time of the day on tuesday morning. so, this will be quite a shock to the system a as we have temperatures, and actually karen, feel like winter. >> yes, it is about time, thank you, sue. it is 4:20. fbi it says it has stopped annex convict from carrying out a new years eve terror plot in rochester, new york. twenty-five year-old emmanuel launch man charged with providing material support to terrorist. the federal say he planned to attack people at a bar with weapons that he purchased from an fbi informant.

4:35 am
sure to make some news for the mummers parade. the a as we pan to our shot left here if you weren't watching at 4:00 o'clock hour we showed you the the elaborate fancy brigade costumes already here delivered here, on market street last night since this parade new has a two year straight tradition of starting at where it used to end here in center city and so they bring the heavier stuff and heavy artillery of mummers outfits, here first, and they have been sitting here under heavy police guard by the the waste because these things cost a lot of money and a lot of workings into them so all of the guys and women are getting ready in south philadelphia at the clubs, they will be loading their trucks shortly and start arriving here. the the parade as we said yesterday starts at 9:00 and as i look at the big clock on the city hall tower that is moving fast if you have a lot of work to do in the last minute prep if you are in those mummers clubs, karen? >> thanks, so much steve. we appreciate it. we will be very eventful parade.
