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 snow
begins, how much we're going to get and whether it is out of here. all of that coming up next time, along with your seven day forecast, right now, let's check traffic. as we get started on your thursday morning, i95 at academy road, checking here, not too many cars. so looking good there. vine st. expressway is all clear for now. so your travel times are good for the schuylkill, from the blue route, to the vine, and i995 from woodhaven down to the vine street expressway. all is clear. >> all right, storm predicted to be on its way as sue just said. crews are closely monitoring its track, listening to what sue is saying to best prepare the roads for safe commuting, the national weather service encouraging the public to stock up on shovels and other winter weather gear. >> so dave kinchen on this now, live from south philly with more, hi, dave. >> reporter: guys, this is of course where penndot keeps their trucks, in fact, one is loading one salt right now. here in south philadelphia, part of penndot's game plan in place, in fact, that plan is
already in play, as you see, person dot drivers already working over time, they were called in to treat the highways with a coating of brine last night. that operation continuing likely today, and trucks from the philadelphia streets department were out and about, treating city streets, as well. they will be out today, and it could be the start after long weekend, with that big storm approaching. we were talking to a variety of people who will be out in the winter weather, penndot driver, you will hear from, ups driver, as well, also tourist -- >> i don't know if they can fly in a foot of snow. i don't know. so i guess it means i'll be staying in philly and playing in the snow for the weekend. >> have another cheese steak. >> yes, yes, yes, why not? >> when you hear we could get 12 inches of snow, what goes through your mind? >> more work on the weekends. can't get away from it. >> this is my job. so more snow means more work for me, which means more money. but, you know, got to keep everybody safe. >> it has been pretty decent year so far. i hate the winter. >> not looking forward to the
weekend? >> not looking forward to it. >> and not looking forward to t but the folks out with penndot keeping us safer, their job, what they do. so thinking about putting these down in your parking spot, after you shovel them, don't do that, of course, philly police out on social media, use the hashtag no savesies. can't save the spots. they'll be out making sure people don't do that, but people do it anyway. guys, back to you. >> loud out there, dave, so get in the warm truck. >> okay, while the northeast gears up for a big snowstorm, the midwest already cleaning up from a wintery mess, drivers were sliding offer the roads in kentucky and tennessee due to the icy conditions. >> in fact, the washington dc area is expected to get hit the hardest this weekend. but snow was already falling last night, volunteers have signed to up help the elderly shovel the snow. and it is really starting to hit hard by way of their forecast late friday night. so, in new york city, to the
north of course, well, it has been a mild winter so far. many hope the storm doesn't cause too many problems. just in case, the big apple's emergency management workers are in fact ready, of course. >> common sense is the key to this. again, i think people have just dealt with really mild winter, so they're not ready maybe for the snow. >> about 8 inches of snow expected in the new york city area this weekend with more than foot expected in the dc area. >> still developing out of center city, this is the scene on the corner of locust street and van pelt, charged shell of 117 year old building. >> a four alarm fire tuesday night gutted the building, flames shot through the roof, for hours, before the flames were finally brought under control. >> officials tell us 22 apartment were destroyed, and that means dozens of people are staying elsewhere. officials with philadelphia's licenses and inspections out on the scene, they say the building is imminently dangerous crews are already demolishing parts of tee-off i
shall 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 that the 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, in the building next-door. roads in the area still closed until crews remove part of the building, that are in danger every falling. >> to different type every danger, it is developing for you right now, philadelphia police on city-wide alert after they received threat of violence from anonymous caller. >> so just two weeks ago, philadelphia police officer was ambushed in west philadelphia, while on patrol, so, investigators are taking the threat very seriously. steve keeley, live for us this morning, with more on there is hi, steve. >> reporter: they learned a lot more about the guy in question. we learned it from them. his name is 36 year old marcus shelton. he has 20 prior arrests, and
he's in custody. he was on parole coincidentally for assault, but wanted for some minor parole violations just for like smoking pot, and fair evading on new york subway. they got him in custody for the parole violations, the police up there don't really think he was a threat to anybody, in fact, he had a brother who was a former police officer up there. but still, new york and philly police have plenty of reason to realize being in uniform or on patrol makes them targets for terror. two weeks ago tonight, is when the philly policeman was shot by a guy pledging allegiance to isis. then up in new york two incident the year before. you had the guy who hacked two cops with a hatchet, who the fbi director said sought inspiration from foreign terror sources, then after that even worse, the guy who road on instagram he was putting wings on pigs before killing two police officers as they sat in their patrol car in brooklyn. so two tip calls yesterday morning to both departments
from the same source in upper manhattan, saying that this guy shelton pledged allegiance , again had commanders of both didn't, issuing high alert to everybody who wears a badge. >> for the things that have happened not only here but in new york and around the country, gout to take it very seriously. >> one of the phonecalls indicated isis, not phonecall to philadelphia, but rather the phonecall to new york, and we are taking it serious, based on what happened in philadelphia couple every weeks ago. >> when you got people threatening lives, police officers just because of the uniform they wear, obviously -- i mean, we figure it all out. we want to remain as we are, just for the safety of the men and women that wear this uniform. >> so shelton turned himself into the detective bureau up at the 32nd precinct, near yankees stadium in the bronx. once he knew police were outlook r for him. so far no plans of threatening police, but he does have the out standing warrants for other crimes so they can still hold him and hope as they hold
out hope jesse hartnett keeps getting better being shot two weeks ago tonight and getting improved to stable condition finally after being critical for so long. even fear he might even lose his arm, but the surgeons over there, doing a great job, and police here doing a great job working in this threatening environment today. >> officer hartnett shot three times in the arm, steve, thank you. the threat in philadelphia and in new york not the only places where officers are being targeted. in fact, we want to take you here to the city of capetown south after cam just released this footage showing the moment ambushed a cop during a traffic stop. show this mercedes here, okay, here is what happened. run the video again. see the officer, watch this man, look at the gun in his hand, goes right up to him, and starts firing. you see the gun go off right here. the officer ducks, fires back at the guy, the guy actually get away. they can't catch him. so the guy is still on the
loose. and show it again. walks right up to him behind him. says asks to him, opens fire. >> this poor officer recently honored with the bravery award. what you don't see in the video by the way, lauren is that correct they go back then and continue giving the guy a ticket. >> wow. >> amazing. >> have very scary moment. >> prosecutors say bill cosby looking for special treatment and want his case thrown out before the first evidence hearing. cosby filed request to dismiss the case. d.a. says he can proof from new evidence the comedian drugged and molested a woman in 2004. cosby says the encounter was concentual a hearing scheduled for february 2nd about that dismissal. >> and what the pope was riding around in when he came to visit philadelphia at times got almost just as much attention as he did. who can forget that fiat pope francis used to get around the city in? >> you mean that itty bitty fiat? >> yes, the itty bitty fiat. >> well, that will hit the auction block. pope actually used two fiats
during his visit to the city brotherly love. the fiat corporation donated the cars for the big event. of course they did. it was free advertising. now, leaders from the world meeting of families and the philadelphia auto show say they'll auction off one of those two itty bitty cars at the black tie gala on 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. >> money raised from the auction will benefit black ministries of the archdioces. now if you can't attend the black tie gala, no worries, other fiat will be on display during the duration of the auto show. how neat is that? >> very cool. >> i wonder what's going it going to go for? >> that's the thing. can you imagine getting into that car? >> seriously, and then you can sit in the same seat the pope was in. >> where you're seated right now, friends, the pope sat in that very seat.
can you imagine showing off to your friends? >> how do you know the person who drives it will talk like that? >> because it will probably be someone who can afford to show off. right? >> that's how they talk? >> president obama is pledging his continued support for the people of flint michigan. the federal investigation underway to end the water contamination crisis. >> speaking of water, cvs is in some hot water shelling out hundreds every thousands of dollars for things you may have bought. which items on its shelves causing a half million dollars settlement? ♪ it's not about hugging trees. it's not about being wasteful either. ♪ you just gotta find that balance. ♪ where taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself. ♪ lease a 2016 lincoln mkz for $289 a month only at your lincoln dealer.

this is maybe what we're going to get. this is snow, which moved across tennessee last night, a sign after bigger storm expected at the end of the week. now, east tennessee schools canceled classes, businesses closed early according to local tv station there is. >> i saw some of my friends in memphis, posted on their facebook pages, ice, snow, just a mess, i was like that's going to be us. >> you worked in memphis. you saw storms like that a lot? >> i did, yes. >> sue, he can act same system moving our way? >> no that's a different system. that's the southern part of the wimpy system we had come through last night. here's what we've got going on with this system. it really hasn't pick upstream yet. but will. and we're going to show you future cast in just a second. there is some of the snow that came through last night, so, yes, i guess, you know, all going to combine, what i am saying, into this low pressure system. now, what we are watching is, as we look at this latest
model run, the line between the rain and the snow, and this is friday afternoon, and we are seeing that this snow is starting to get closer, it is in virginia, and we're again watching that rain-snow line by saturday mid-night it is snowing here, and snowing pretty hard. and the line is down there, southern delaware, but see it start to sneak further northward, so thinking lighter accumulations at the shore because we're going to be competing with this milder air moving in, and mixing some of this snow with rain, so, it looks like an all-day event on saturday. if you can at all, stay in. just plan to stay in, all day saturday. this may even last into sunday morning, the way things are looking now, there is sunday morning 3:00 a.m., and this model only goes out that far. but you see, still snowing there. so, how much, i think these numbers are going to change, but his is our first estimate. and it looks like the bulk of snow will fall on the i95 corridor. then we see drop off. we see the mixing every rain.
so 12-18 inches here. but three-six down at the shore. if that much depending on how much rain there is mix in with the snow, could see foot around millville, dover, but they may go more toward that six-inches. that's pretty big range six-12 inches. but again, this is still the better part of two days away from this storm. so, again, that's our first estimate there. but you can at least prepare for a lot of snow. and i would say the minimum probably get in philadelphia is 6 inches. but probably more. winter storm watch already in effect, look down to the baltimore-washington area, they issued blizzard watch in the morning yesterday. high confidence in that kind after storm. down the shore, full moon, coinciding with this storm, coastal storm, coastal flooding, beach errosion, not good, 60-mile per hour winds, wet snow, mixing with the rain. so that's whole different set of problems at the shore, even if they don't get as much snow as we will. soap, what we know is that we will probably see the snow
start, it moves in from south to north, friday, between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., depending where you live. then looks like the heaviest snow will fall in that overnight time, through the early afternoon on saturday, and we will see wind, along with the snow, so it start off kind of dry, fluffy, then becomes heavy and wet, which is really not easy to shovel. and you really have to take frequent breaks when you are trying to shovel that heavy wet snow, which will also maybe bring down some power lines. so, this is the time to prepare, not panic, got it? >> thirty-six today, 35 tomorrow, all day event perhaps lingering more and more likely that will link near sunday morning, but then looks pretty good headed into the middle of the next week. there is your time, looks like mostly saturday event. that's your seven day forecast, and it is time for traffic. i think we have covered everything with the snow there. now we take a look at this construction on the pennsylvania turnpike, between
valley forge and bensalem, eastbound left lane blocked, and that's slowing folks down just a little bit on that part of the turnpike. but they do expect to pick up that construction soon. 422 past trooper road all clear with no delays, and route 42 creek road in new jersey, building volume, no delays just yet. chris, lauren? >> sue serio, thank you. 5:18 is the time this thursday morning, and cvs has agreed pay nearly half million dollars to pennsylvania for allegation it is sold items pales the expiration date. the drug store chain will shell off $450,000 for selling old over the counter drugs, infant formula, dairy products. pennsylvania attorney general office said that cvs has agreed step up it screening every expired products and training of store managers and employees. president obama pledging his continued tort for the people of flint michigan. >> this as they continue to deal with an ongoing water contamination crisis there. as fox news correspondent will car reports, federal

issue. 500 aid dollars approved but so far the white house is stopping short of declaring the crisis a federal disaster. wednesday michigan's governor filed an appeal saying flint needs more federal aid to repair the entire water system including plumbing in homes. meantime, class action lawsuits have been filed, claiming contaminated water is responsible for health issues, miscarriages, to potential learning disability in children. in that officials new there were problems, but gave false assurances before taking action. the us justice department is now investigate. >> what took so long? because didn't take a scientist to tell us that brown water is not good. >> michigan lawmakers considering a $28 million additional state dollars n los angeles, will car, fox news. today the obama administration could announce new visa requirement for europeans. >> the rules would affect european travelers dual nationals of iraq, iran, suddan, or syria, who have been to any of those countries in the past five years.

north and west of us. now, it is back to snow by saturday afternoon by about 5:00. but the other thing to remember with this storm it lasts all day saturday. it doesn't get out of here very quickly. it could linger into sunday morning, so, where that rain-snow line ends up, when all is said and done, really make big difference in those snowfall totals. so these are estimates so far. i think this will change, we still are calling for a foot or more of snow. and it is very possible that could happen. because it falls so quickly, and it changes over to heavy wet snow. very lighter amounts at the shore, i think might even take those numbers down little bit around cape may around atlantic city. and then maybe up those numbers north and west of the city where we could get more toward the 12:00 than the 6 inches every snow. winter storm watch in effect saturday night into sunday morning, this could link near sunday, and weather service in baltimore, washington area issued already blizzard watch for that region kind of going
nuts down there. so what we know is the snow begins south to north friday, 9:00 p.m., to 11:00 p.m., when the first snowflakes fall. picks up pretty quickly, falls heaviest into early afternoon, winds added to the weather picture, gusting 35 to 40 miles per hour. down the shore, it is unfortunate timing here because a full moon combined with this coastal storm means a lot of coastal flooding. beach errosion, as well, full moon tide, couldn't be worse timing, northeasterly wind gusts to up 60 miles an hour or more at the shore. that is tropical storm force, and wet snow mixing with the rain there. so, our concerns are for the snow clinging to the trees, bringing some tree branches, entire trees down, power lines could come down with the heavy wet snow, as well. and power outages, would result. so, wanted to just show you how some of the models are coming back on their snowfall totals. global, around the european, now going with eight for
philadelphia, or closer to 9:00 but again that could go back up again as we get continued model runs. so, we keep ion that situation, 36 degrees, and very quiet today. most of friday is fine. i think even stay dry during the evening commute. get home, get maybe hunker down for the saturday event, which is a one out every ten, in your weather by the numbers, and that's your forecast, let's check traffic on your thursday morning. >> we see some build up in volume here, i95, just little bit near the vine street expressway, more icicle removal just cleared, so, we're thankful for that. because we're going to be above freezing with our temperatures today, and vine st. expressway building volume but no major delays so your travel times this morning, still just fine on the schuylkill from the blue route to the vine, and on i59 from woodhaven, down to the vine street expressway, lauren, chris? >> snow and sleet move into central and southern tennessee, and unlikely friends seem to be enjoying the wetter.
