looks like the rain will be with us on thursday and a good portion of friday, cooling off, over the weekend and very chilly, by sunday. that is your seven day forecast. what is going on. >> we have you covered. >> you got it. >> good morning. >> i thought would i walk in your shot there. that is why i was going crazy. your heart drops. that will wake you up. good morning. live look the at 95, right here near stadium area near broad street interchange, in problems or delays at the moment. light volume so far, this morning but everything is wet. so just watch it. it will be ayuky morning rush hours. the don't wear good shoes it will be a bad hair day as you roll out of the driveway. live look the at the bennie in problems up and overcoming into downtown. everything is kind of slower than normal this morning because of weather. factor in a few extra minutes are be prepared to have that first meeting be a little late or that first appointment being late. warrington, county line road

morning, heavier rain in dover, delaware around jersey shore and cape may county. areas of heavy downpours. rain is lighter here in philadelphia for the moment but heavier rain is coming in. you can see lancaster count which heavier downpours as well. so reduced visibility because of that rain in places like atlantic city, lancaster, 4 miles we're down to in philly international. quarter mile very foggy up in mount pocono with all this moisture in the air. it is 47 degrees right now. we're on the chilly side to get you started. sunrise at 6:51. and other temperatures, 30's up in the poconos mountains. forty-four in trenton. we have 49 atlantic city. fifty in dover, delaware. we're heading to about 65, once the rain end but it will be wind driven rain, at the tail end of it. and fog, will slow you down as well, this morning. we have the wind tonight and overnight low of 42 degrees. we are off to a chilly start tomorrow morning, that is your weather authority forecast.
so hopefully you had a goodies ter weekend, bob kelly. >> yes, it was goodies ter weekend. everybody back at it. lets look at this accident here philadelphia a fire fighters on the scene, this fellow, upside ways on the grass, here, and this guy is facing the wrong way, so they are trying to sort it all out, this is a live look the at the roosevelt boulevard, southbound, right here near fox street, i believe this is the fox street on ramp here if you are heading south, say from broad street heading down toward the schuylkill expressway. again, only that left lane opened. right now it is not that bad because volleys kind of light but again, roads are wet, and it will be ayuky commute this morning. give yourself some extra time and the speeds will be knocked down naturally because of the weather. in problems, coming up and over the ben franklin, walt whitman, betsy ross all in good shape, starting to see volume pop here at 422 at collegeville. today is day they will shut down county line road, bridge over that little neshaminy

their window as they were ready in their seats for take off to philadelphia from detroit saturday morning at 7:00 a.m., until the flight got canceled and the reason why, suddenly became known. >> look outside window and at first i saw just a police car. i said that is odd. i said there is a a police car right outside our plane. he said wow. about five minutes later i saw them actually taking the pilot around the side of the pie and plane handcuffing him. >> he is supposed to be on the airplane and supposed to be safe and you have someone drunk, driving the plane. that is, crazy. that is just crazy. >> i honestly could not believe it. i could not believe something like that could happen and that he could get that close to the the aircraft. >> reporter: after these passengers reports on twitter became a national lead store a monk national media, american airlines put out this statement, stating the
obvious, this is a serious matter and we are assisting local law enforcement and the faa with the investigation. we will handle this matter appropriate thely as the safety and care of our customers and employees is the highest priority. now, american merged with u.s. airways you will recall making philly's biggest airline even bigger, more than seven out of ten flights are on american airlines, 3,000 employees at last count based here in philadelphia a so far it is only known that the pilot is from pennsylvania and he is 50 or 51 years old since we were only told he was born in 1965. to be considered under the influence of thriving, of course, you need a blood alcohol content of .08. pilots the standard is just half that, .04, faa rules really stipulate no pilot can drink eight hours before flying. they really recommend no pilots drink 24 hearst before a flight. again, this is a 7:00 a.m. flight. that early to be that drunk. >> so you think he was probably out maybe friday night into the saturday
morning, we don't know what he blew by way of the breathalizer yet. i guess other part here steve that is interesting is what if he had just quietly walked through past the tsa agent? if he wasn't acting drunk, they might in the have caught him and how many pilot might there be that gets past that after having a couple of drinks. >> reporter: that is why they have a pilot and co pilot. i used to be worried flying in the helicopter we only have one pilot. he had a heart problem or something i better learn how to fly a helicopter and i did just in case good did you really, wow. >> reporter: thinks why it is good to have a pilot and co pilot, that is what your what if scenario can play out, other guy can take over. you would hope pilot would report his collogue if he was that drunk that the tsa noticed that at the detroit airport. >> they are all sitting next to each other in the cock pit
that are one-dimensional? new air wick room mist with life scents is a multi-layered fragrance, just like scents in real life. our homes are rich, varied, and pleasantly surprising. and air wick room mist is, too. finally, a true-to-life fragrance, for your lively home. air wick. home is in the air. this is fun. villanova marches in the final four on saturday. they claimed victory overtop seeded kansas a couple days ago. >> dave kinchen live, as team prepares for the big game against oak a dave, my bracket the is over and done with right now.
>> reporter: yeah, i almost forget that i filled out the a bracket, because like i said earlier, it is probably accurate somewhere in the parallel universe, but not this one. what a game saturday night. i can tell you this is a fun week when you get in the final four, the team does the hard work of preparing, looking at tape and practicing and traveling, the fans get to watch highlights over and over and wearing jerseys and all that good stuff. what an ending. a greate lacing from the buzzer saturday night. wildcats punching their tickets to the final four for the first time since 2009 beating number one seed in the region, kansas 64-69. but numbers and steps really make that victory more amazing. nova shot 40 percent able only four for 18 from three. defense was on chris. archie, chris jenkins and josh h art all scored 13 points they brought home ncaa tournament south region. they are back to campus for easter sunday greeting from
student and fans. >> it was a thrill. from the basketball side of it to be a part of the game like that, a great college basketball game, incredible atmosphere, big time athletes. it was a real thrill to be part of that. pretty excited about the win. we were celebrating with the guys, and the coaching staff, and everyone will involved with this program was pretty awesome and i will never forget it. we are trying to to say we're not done yet. we have a couple more games left, and we will see if we can get them and finish our season off on monday. >> all right. so it is, of course, next one up, oklahoma and nova on saturday in houston. also north carolina and syracuse rounding out that final four and destroying my bracket, back to you. >> yes. in a good way. nba all-star game in 2017, may be in jeopardy. >> um-hmm. >> the reason it all has to do with the state of north carolina. >> oh, i think i know.
yucky, rain, rain, rain, all streaming from the south. it is a couple seasons we are deal with this morning a coastal system and this cold front will come through. once that happens we will get pretty high wind later this afternoon. so think about when the rain end the wind will pick up and you better hold on to your hat. if you think it is a bad hair day already because of the rain it will be worse when the
wind come n we will see heavier rain rolling into southern delaware, southern new jersey, it is still just kind of spotty here, in philadelphia but we will look up to the north and it is very light rain but it is very misty even in places where it isn't actively down pouring but around philadelphia area we're seeing plenty of rain, you will need umbrella umbrella worth any cape may county. milford in dover, delaware we are seeing heavy downpours as well. looking at the future cast we will see rain ending by about 11:00 or 12:00 o'clock but as temperatures pick up so dot wind. we will end up in the mid 60's today and then getting pretty chilly tonight but look the at wind gusts by 3:00 in the afternoon we're seeing 30, 34 miles an hour wind gusts, even higher about 5:00 in the evening. so drive home especially driving over a bridge or something could be quite challenging because of the wind. so, again, when the rain end, the wind will pick up later in the day. we will call it mother
nature's hair dryer. 47 degrees right now in philadelphia, we're 50 down in dover but chilly 36 in mount pocono. forty-three in lancaster and reading to get you started. here is a look back over the weekend, now our average high is up to 57 degrees. we were a above average for both saturday and sunday, little bit less sunshine then we anticipated for easter sunday but it stays dry, and we hope you had a good one. win driven rain today, 58 degrees and sunshine tomorrow. a cold start on wednesday, but we to recover nicely, it looks like a very lovely middle of the week but then the rain, will return, on thursday, chilling us out for next weekend which, of course, will be the first week end of april, bob kelly, ahh. >> yes, you got it. sound good. we will be flipping our calendar by end of the week. 4:47, on a monday morning, a live look at the left over here, last car, involved in this accident, southbound on the boulevard right here near fox street getting pulled out of the grass here.
