chances. >> steve's on the story right now in center city. steve? >> all of the cops on the street happy to hear this morning that cops have really resolved this one unlike that previous one, remember, it was just last weekend, where we had that reporter about the three guys that were out there even more radical than the guy that shot jesse hartnett. police outlook being for those guys, and having to fine them, then find out whether they were a threat. well, they found this guy, almost instantly, two anonymous calls, one here to philly police, one to new york police, and the caller names the same guy in both calls. well, we have learned that the guy is an ex-con, 36 year old marcus shelton. and we learned whole lot about him because turned out he wasn't so much a threat because he walked in to a detective bureau, near yankees stadium in the bronx, all by himself, and said here you guys are looking for me. now he has violated parole, got 20 prior arrests and the parole violations were very minor things like fare evading on the new york subway,
7:09 am
smoking pot, when not supposed to be doing those things on parole. but no armed man, and certainly no threat, according to police, sources right now. but, they are still holding him as they try to find out why somebody would make these few calls from upper manhattan to both police departments to say that this guy had a gun, and he had a plan, and he was pledging allegiance to isis just like archer did here in philadelphia, and was also planning to shoot cops both in philly and new york. here are top commanders from both department, talking about this yesterday. >> because of the things that have happened not only here but in new york and around the count rip, gout to take it very seriously. >> 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. >> and when you got people threatening lives, police officers, just because the uniform they wear, i mean, obviously, we figure it all out, we want to remain as we are, just for the safety of the men and women that wear
7:10 am
this uniform. >> so, they are holding this guy on the parole violations, and just because they got this guy, alex, mike, doesn't mean the threats to police have gone away at all. only been two weeks to the day that jesse hartnett was shot two thursday's ago, and we also have some good news on that front, because he has finally been upgrade today stalled, several surgeries already, probably few more surgeries to go. but, surgeons have saved that right arm. that was a big fear, and he's doing a lot better. and the police still doing everything in pairs around philly and probably up in new york, as well. >> for sure. all right, that is some good news out of that. steve, thank you. 7:10. >> let's get to lauren? hi, authorities still trying to figure out what sparked large fire in montgomery county, this was the scene as flames shot through the roof of this house on welsh rd. lower moreland yesterday. firefighters fully extended the truck ladder to get handle on this one, took them nearly three hours to get the fire under control. one firefighter had minor injuries, no word yet on what started the fire. prosecutors in the bill cosby sexual assault case say

7:14 am
baltimore-washington area, blizzard watch. then you move to the north. long island, and new york, blizzard watch. what's the difference? the wind. it is not necessarily only the amount of snow. but when you factor in very high wind, see how vulnerable, new york; of course with washington, d.c. area being in the bull's eye of the storm, that's why they're under blizzard watches. we'll keep close eye on whether our weather service issues any upgrades during the day today, of course, and post it right away, in fact, more details will be posted as often as possible on the facebook and twitter, sue serio fox 29. all right, here is a look at the storm as it is now. starting to form in to something. starting to seat beginning of this counter clockwise flow, as it forms into bonafide low pressure system, will gather moisture from the gulf, move up the coast, and become as we said a force to be reckoned with. but nothing today. in fact, it will be very tranquil day, arrival time of the storm, it looks like well after the evening rush, on friday, so you will get to work, get to school, get home, hopefully, and then it is in
7:15 am
the overnight hours that this thing starts to crank up, and we see heavy snowfall at a rate of one-2 inches of an hour in parts every everywhere you see the dark were you here. then we start to watch this rain-snow line. that's going to be the big wild-card here. where this actually set up. and cuts off snowfall and changes it to sleet and/or rain and heavy rain because, remember, this is coastal storm, and there will be a lot of impacts at the jersey shore. it looks like, also, this thing will be with us throughout the entire day on saturday, into the early hours of sunday morning. so, not only a powerful storm, but also, a storm of long duration, that's truck all every us. so we stick with these snowfall totals for now. expect them to change as we get closer to the event. lots and lot of snow, we told you, one to 2 inches an hour, 12-18 inches possible in this i95 corridor. much less, though, at the jersey shore, because of that change-over to rain. so, south to north is how it comes in. after 9:00 start looking for
7:16 am
those first snowflakes friday night, heaviest overnight into the early afternoon hours of saturday, peak wind gusts of 35 to 40 miles an hour. that's when we factor in the wind. but nothing will be like the wind at the shore. coastal impacts will be huge, because this is coinciding with a full moon this weekend. couldn't be worse timing for this for coastal flooding and beach errosion, and the winds we expect to gust as high as 60 miles an hour, at times or more, so the wet snow will mix with the rain, and of course make a big mess, so with the snow clinging to the trees and the power lines, that's a big concern, again, it is friday night, into saturday, and probably sunday morning. that's your forecast, let's get to the roads, because we do have a few things to show you here, including what's going on in browns mills, new jersey. a serious accident on route 70 westbound at lakehurst road with all lanes blocked on that part of route 70 for an overturned vehicle with what we are hearing are serious
