told you about yesterday, that would happen overnight it, did. if you have any snow and you want to take a picture and sends it to us at sue serio fox 29, is my twitter and facebook handle, so here is our live look at old city. it is a tiny bit miler than yesterday. 29 degrees, but it feels like 21, thanks to a 8-mile per hour wind. 7:18 your sunrise time, we have other temperatures in the 20's this morning, and a little bit after windchill, so most of our windchills to the north are until the teens, philadelphia, we are in in where it feels almost like the actual temperature. so upper 20's, could be few slick spots, down delaware, south jersey where we had the coating of snowfall overnight. partly sunny skies today, really pretty day, with a lot of sunshine, and sun and clouds with a high of 38 degrees, and then 33 by 7:00 p.m., so this is the calm before blah, blah, blah, you know the rest of it, we will

already in play. penndot drivers are already working over time. they were called in to treat the highways with a coating of brine solution, and the trucks from the philadelphia street department were out and about treating city streets, as well. they will be out today and it could be the start after long weekend for crews with that big storm approaching. we talked with a variety of people who will be out in the weather, we spoke with a tourist, but we also spoke with people working in the winter conditions, including a penndot driver. >> this is my job. so, you know, more snow means more work for me, means more money, but, you know, we got to keep everybody safe. >> more work on the weekends. so can't get away from it. >> they say we could get foot of snow. how would that impact your plans? >> well, i don't know if they can fly in a foot of snow. i don't know. so i guess it means i will be staying in philly and playing in the snow for the weekend. have another cheese steak. >> ya, ya, ya, why not? >> meantime thinking about saving a parking spot if you
shoveled it, better rethink that. of course philly cops hitting social media with their infamous save time no saving any spots at all, although some residents tell us fat chance they'll do that anywhere. their words, not ours, they told you. meantime penndot officials repeat their request, they often say at this time of year, give their trucks plenty of space, let those salt trucks get that salt down. and let their crews keep all of us safe. back to you, lauren? dave kinchen, thanks so much. we aren't the only ones preparing for snow. major airlines getting ready for the big storm, america, southwest, delta, among the airlines already issuing travel waivers to customers ahead of the storm. american allowing customers traveling through nine airports between philadelphia and southern virginia to change flights without penalty. southwest allowing customers from boston to washington to row-schedule if they plan to fly friday or saturday. and delta is waiving its change-fee to travelers planning to fly at 19 airports

threat of snowstorm, now, the police again with a new threat. and what happened was two calls came in yesterday. one, here, to philadelphia police, a second call, up to new york city police. and that person calling said in both calls that somebody was going to shoot a police officer in philadelphia and in new york city. soap, both departments were out talking about that last night. >> there was a time when, you know, you were just cautious about it, and any more, i mean, because of the things that have happened, not only here but in new york and around the country, gout to take it very seriously, so when these things happen, the authorities really start working very hard to try to get to the bottom of it, as we're dealing with this case. >> one of the phonecalls indicated isis, not the phonecall to philadelphia, but rather, the phonecall to new york, and we are taking it serious, based on what happened in philadelphia. >> soap, police pick up a guy that was described by the
caller. he was already wanted on couple of parole violations, and does that sounds familiar, just like mr. archer was, when he was accused of trying to kill a cop here in philadelphia. so right now the guy has not been charged with anything related to that threat. but they have enough to held him on on previous charges for parole violations. so now they have to obviously take every threat seriously, chris, lauren, because they saw what happened when somebody want and head bent on killing a cop two weeks ago today. >> yes, can't take anything right these days, steve keeley, thank you so much. >> out of center city scene at the corner every locust, 117 year old building, four alarm fire tuesday night gutted the building, flames shot through the roof for hours before the flames were finally brought under control. >> i could tell you you could smell the ten in center city. twenty-two apartments were destroyed, that means, dozens staying elsewhere, their homes completely destroyed.
officials with philadelphia's licenses and inspections out on the scene, they say, the building is imminently dangerous, crews already demolishing parts of it. officials say they're concerned about the winter storm expected to hit our area this weekend. >> with the snow coming this weekend, we want to be extra cautious with this building, because of the additional loads there snow will place on the remaining interior structure, so we will start a demolition from the roof line down. we are hoping, though, that we can save the majority of this building. >> the fire also forcing people out of apartments, the building next-door, roads in the area still closed until crews remove parts of the building, that are in danger of falling. >> i drove through that area yesterday. what a mess. stay away. >> 4:09 the time. now to the latest, bill cosby's legal troubles, prosecutors say the comedian is seeking special treatment and wants his case thrown out just before the first evidence hearing.

this is an estimate. it will change between now and when the storm begins. this is thursday, really early in the morning, friday night is when the storm begins. so, we think that past our western suburbs, three-6 inches, it looks like berks, lancaster in the six-12-inch range, in the 12-18 right now, along the i95 corridor, and even more down in that baltimore-washington area, which is shaping up to be the bulls eye of the storm where the worse of it may be. then, much less, as you head down to the jersey shore, maybe three-6 inches or less, depending on how much rain mixing with the snow, and that's the map we have for now. winter storm watch has been issued for friday night, into sunday morning, by the national weather service, and eventually it will be upgraded to a warning, concerns down the shore are many, and they're not the same as the ones we have inland because of the flooding and the beach errosion. there is a full moon this weekend, coinciding with this major storm, as bad news for
the shore, northeasterly winds, gust to go 50 to 60 miles an hour, wet snow mixing with rain, making travel different for different reason. so, here's the future cast of this storm as it heads up the east coast, gathers lots and lots of moisture, it is a big storm covering a lot of real estate. we see that by saturday noon in the thick of t but you also see down in southern delaware, and maybe at the jersey shore, there is rain. there is green, and not white, and this is where we expect the lower accumulations of snow. but with the high winds, anyway, these future wind gusts could be up to 40, 41 miles an hour, the snow begins south to north probably between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. friday. so friday night, get to school and home, get to work and home on friday, fine. saturday, you might want to stay in. because the heaviest of the snow, 2:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., early in the day, we will be with us for good day, from 6:00 to 10:00 in the morning saturday to get you through. that will peak wind gusts
saturday, 35 to 40 miles an hour, snow will be clinging to the trees, that heavy wet snow, which could take down power lines, and take down trees, as well. power outages, the heavy wet snow, a characteristic of it. so as we look ahead, in the seven day forecast mid 30's, for today, 37 for tomorrow. 34 degrees, on saturday, with that nighttime snow, actually, the night snow of course comes on friday. the words don't quite match with what's going on here, but we've got -- we will get it together and make sure that we get that seven-day forecast for you. let's get to traffic right now. there is construction on 295 northbound near the schuylkill expressway, which is blocking two lanes, use caution. this is expected to clear up by 5:00. but there is construction on that part of 295 northbound. now 95 southbound approaching

change, as we get closer to the storm. so, here we are, on i95 corridor, with more than a foot of snow possible, from the storm that's coming friday night into saturday. six to 12 inches just to the south of us, say dover, millville, and then along the shore, much lighter accumulation, because of mixing with rain. then you go up to the north and west, and we could be in the six to 12-inch range there. looks like i-95 corridor right now where it is setting up, but of course, a track of the storm that's a little bit off could change everything. winter storm watches in effect, for our entire area friday night, into sunday, and look at this, down in the baltimore, washington area, blizzard watch. it was issued yesterday. now that far out from the storm pretty high confidence in this forecast. just saying. down the shore, there are another whole set of issues with this coastal storm, being a coastal storm, and look at this, adding a full moon into it, so that will increase the chance of flooding and beach errosion, winds will gust up
50, 06 miles an hour, wet snow mixing with rain, here comes the future cast showing the storm gathering the moisture from the gulf of mexico. and then hugging the coast, as it moves, and again, 100 miles this way, 100 miles that way it, will change those snowfall projections, right now we have rain for saturday afternoon to the south of us, but snow continuing, if that rain line moves northward, our snowfall totals decrease. we'll see what happens. meantime look at the wind gusts for saturday, 62 miles an hour projected for dover, delaware, we're in the mid 30's, here in philadelphia, so whatever snowfalls will be blowing all around. but along the shore, and down to the south of us, very high wind gusts in the ooh to 60-mile per hour range on saturday. so, inland, we're thinking the first snowflakes will start between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. the laters the start, the longer it will last. so we're expecting this to maybe last into sunday morning, but the heaviest of the snow expected to fall from
2:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. saturday. peak wind gusts 30 to 40 miles an hour inland, and of course it is different at the shore. so expect that wet snow to clinic to the trees, power lines, some of those could come down, and that's why you have to be prepared for power outages, with this storm. it certainly is a possibility. right now it doesn't look like much, so see the circulation, starting, that counter clockwise circulation, of a low pressure system forming. it will gather that moisture in the gulf of mexico, head our way. meanwhile we had the off shore area of snow, very light that came through last night. doesn't look like much happened with that. so your seven day forecast has 36 degrees for today, 35 for tomorrow, most of the day tomorrow should be fine before those nighttime snowflakes begin. and then amp up overnight and really crank up with the winds and the snow and a one out of ten, no surprise there, in your weather by the numbers again, possibly lingering into sunday morning, the good news is a little bit milder as we
get into the middle of next week. that's your seven day, let's check traffic. it is thursday morning, a lot to get done before the weekend, so, is anybody getting a early start? let's check. well, weaver construction going on, pennsylvania turnpike eastbound, construction blocking left lane between valley forge and bensalem. use caution, but it is not really slowing anybody down too much. and approaching spring garden on the schuylkill, all is clear, this morning, chris and lauren? >> sorry star wars fans, do you have wait little longer for the next film to hit the big screen. disney says star wars episode eight is released in december 2017. >> my goodness. it was originally scheduled for release seven months earlier. disney did not give reason for this postponement. the current star wars film, the force awakens, was originally planned for the summer of 2015 release, but moved to last month. soap, that movie paid off. as the force awakens now the highest grossing us film of all time, taking in more than $860 million here in the u.s.
the pope actually used two fiats during his visit to philly. the fiat corporation donated the cars to the big event, right? free advertising. now, leaders from the world meeting of families and the philadelphia auto show say they're going to auction off one of those two cars at the auto show's black tie gala. mark your calendars, friday the 29th. >> we can think of no better way to officially close the visit of pope francis to philadelphia than to have his papal fiat drive off into the sunset, while benefitting so many people in need. >> you notice, lauren, she never said it i bitty there. >> select ministries of the archdioces, now, if you can't attend the black tie gala, no worries. the other fiat will be on display during the duration of the auto show. >> cbs is in holt water shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars to the things you may have bought.

to come together. but let's talk about today, because it is thursday, and you probably have a lot to do. we're moved to up a seven out of ten in your weather by the numbers. our storm is starting to take shape. it is pretty big area, too, that's going to gain some strength, and moisture from the gulf of mexico. but there is your snow that came through overnight. not too many problems with that, thank goodness, 28 degrees, but it feels like 21 right now in philadelphia. little bit milder than yesterday. but 21 degrees is still cold, and windchills in the teens in the suburbs as you see here actual temperatures in the 20's, but dress for the windchill, which is in the teens, feels like 10 degrees in lancaster, it feels like seven in mount pocono, feels like ten in millville. that's still very cold for the kids at the bus stop. so, plan on sunday shine today, it will stay chilly all day long, but we may get into the upper 30's, 36 was our high yesterday. 38 degrees we're expecting today. your sunset time is 5:07. so this is pretty tranquil. we'll tell you when this sw
