normally that with strike fear into us but this one will remain far enough off shore and we will show you more of the future cast, in a moment but this is something that is coming up from the south and it will bring us rain but since the bulk of the storm will remain off shore we will get outer portion of it. we do think by ten or 11:00 it will be raining pretty hard in some places and it looks like if you are at the shore or in southern delaware you will get heavier rain but it may happen depend ing on how late you stay up while you were sleeping. the here's 3:00 in the morning and raining steadily but by six or 7:00 in the morning most of the storm is starting to get out of here and it ties mild, every where, for anything but rain, and that is tonight into tomorrow. now we will move ahead in the future cast to sunday where we start to see things cloud up and we're getting ready for a cold front to come through. that should come through with snow flurry activity but it will not be much, big difference will be the temperature, once we get to monday, so speaking of to

"fox sports" does confirm that the eagles coaching search has ended, that is from "fox sports" one precisely. pederson, of course was a long time quarterback, backup qb in his nfl years including brief play with the eagles era under donovan mcnabb's rookie season in 1999. forty-seven year-old peterson will be replacing ousted eagles coach chip kelly once he is donnas the kansas city chiefs offensive coordinator. move cannot be made until the chiefs end their season which is in the playoff mode right now but eagles fans still had plenty to say. >> i'm down with it. i know he brought mcnabb up in his rookie year and everything. we also learned under andy

kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. in your money the cost to mail a letter, what, could be going up again. >> u.s. postal service, they are having money problems, still. they need some help. the postal service is seeking a 3cent increase per stamp, that would bring a price of the first class stamp to 49 cents. post office expects to lose $6 billion this year. the last year the the agency lost $16 billion. rate hike must be approved by the the postal regulatory commission. it keeps going up and up. from free bye toss closures we have lot to talk about when it comes to chip pot thely. >> it all has to do with the chain's food born illness out break. ceo of the chain announced it will american double amount of free food it gave way to
customers in the show of goodwill. on february 8th plans to brown bag it the for lunch. all chipotle stores will close for a national all employee meeting. the the closure toys give executives time to answer questions about the the out break and to go over a new marking plan to bring customers back. more than 350 people say they to the sick after eating chipotle food last year. >> i would still go there. >> i don't know if i have been there since the the out break but it is one of my favorite restaurants. >> good thing is you don't eat a lot of meat and they have a lot of meatless options. >> they are healthy, i can get a bruno, which is beans, salad bowls. >> here's my only problem when you want quacamole, when i love. >> it is $10 extra. >> it is more like $40 extra. >> what is up with that. >> i know. >> it is smallest amount ever too. >> it is unbelievable, it is like gold, really. >> amazon, offering a huge discount for its prime membership this weekend. >> subscription fee will drop

well, today is doctor martin luther king, junior's birthday. the civil rights leader would have been 87 years old. so we all celebrate on monday, because it is a a national holiday. actually, today though the celebration kicks off at african-american museum, they are having a party all weekend. >> dancers, history, reinact. s, why wait until monday. >> but it is also, they are calling for a day of service on monday. this is not a day to hang out and watch tv, do something for others, as the late great
civil rights leader would have done. at 87, here's a sad thing for all of us, he could be alive and thriving today at just 87 years old if you think bit, sue serio. >> it is true, but at least we have made something positive out of everything to that happened by having that day of service on monday, and as you know, or maybe you don't that philadelphia has the largest, martin luther king day of service of any city in the country and that is something to be proud of. yeah, we're still tracking tropics. in case you missed this yesterday, is there a hurricane. we have used a first name on our 2016 hurricane list and it is alex way off the west coast of africa right there in the middle of the atlantic ocean. if you are going to have a hurricane this is the way to do it so it doesn't bother anybody but it has been one of the earliest starts in hurricane season in january. that will not affect us at all. this is. the this is a storm system in the gulf of mexico bringing rain, to alabama and georgia
and parts of the florida and it will move up the coast. the it looks like the center of the storm will move far enough off shore that it will just get some rain from it the but nothing epic, just a lot have rain and probably won't start until well after sunset tonight maybe eight or 9:00 o'clock first rain drops start falling. heavy rain around midnight and into two or 3:00 in the morning and then things taper off and still raining by six or 7:00. by 9:00 o'clock for sure that rain is out of here. then we will take a look at what will happen on sunday, because for saturday, temperatures still remain pretty reasonable but it gets chillier on sunday, and there is the the possibility of maybe a little snow shower activity late in the day at the shore on sunday, again we will see what happens but a cold front is coming through so we are back to bitter cold on martin luther king day on monday. so 33 degrees right now in philadelphia, 32 mount pocono. twenty-eight in reading. thirty-nine in dover.
forty-three in wildwood. a much more comfortable morning then any we have experienced this week and wind are in the a factor at all. so, no wind chill. look at our high 54 degrees. forty-eight for tomorrow with that rain lingering just in the early morning hours. kind of cloudy on sunday, and it will be a little bit colder with temperatures in the 30's but very cold on the holiday itself on monday with a high of only 29 degrees. then we will stay below average in the 30's all the way through to the middle of next week. so first it is mild, then it is cold, you know the drill bob kelly. >> that roller coaster ride, good morning everybody. 4:48. tgif. we are off to a good start. schuylkill expressway, blue route, i-95, nothing major this morning. the the one problem we do have is a a fire location in southwest philadelphia, at 61st and upland. so watch out for local detours through the neighborhood. an accident on fifth and hunting park avenue in the
hunting park section of the city, luzerne or the boulevard will probably be your two best bets. two early morning crashes. then over in cherry hill, new jersian accident, let's roll video from the news van. steve keeley passed this on the way in westbound lanes of route 70, an accident pulled down overhead power lines right in front of the wegmans there at haddonfield road. so the the the westbound lanes are blocked, let's go back to the maps. the eastbound side has one lane opened, so at least for the moment through cherry hill, i think 38 is your best bet for maybe the next half an hour or so. big visitor coming to town today, motorcade madness, vice-president joe biden coming to town for an event the at the university of penn, 3:00 o'clock start time for the event itself but i will caution you from noon time on just watch for a lot of unusual traffic patterns, a heavy police presence and, of course, knowing mr. bind he is coming from washington. sure, he can fly but he loves to ride the train which will
