7:14 am
>> hi, i'm bruce. sometimes in search of bizarre behavior that makes philadelphia well, philadelphi philadelphia, it helps to per use the local police blotter it's there we find with regularity truth is indeed straichinger than fiction. take case of 25-year-old jamaal goodwin of southwest philly as reported in philly.com police say goodwin robbed a bank in malvern monday and might have got own way with it, too, except he wrote does he manned note on corner of a document used to discharge him at a local alcohol and drug rehab facility earlier that day and left behind some of the stolen loot in taxi cab he took to the bank. also left inside the cab, good jp win's wallet with his driver's license and photo id inside. when goodwin was arrested police all of one day later authorities say he was in possession of heroin, cocaine and yes, some of the bank's
7:15 am
money. of course, if the cop he's not caught goodwin tuesday there's a chance this guy would have has bee inked him soon after, after all he had most of the gear needed to join law enforcement. that's because according to philly police he stole a policeman's jacket, hat and bath off a bench at the justice center and tossed uniform components into a macy's bag and beat feet. the officer that owned the gear was inside the courtroom at the time of the theft and testifying in obviously unrelated case. of course, this closing crook should not be much tough to cash that our bawndling bank robber all they have to do is stage a phony crime scene and wait for police to arrive. guy with jacket, hat badge and no pants, there's your man, only in philly. and speaking of the man, scott you are the man today with all the weather outside.
7:16 am
everyone wants to know what's going on. looks like a snowplow on market street. >> it's all about timing and temperatures right now lauren. we've started off in and around philadelphia as more of a light snow. and now temperatures are warming and transitioning to sleet and more freezing rain then eventually all rain. take a look at ultimate doppler lit up across the region and it depends on location as to what you're seeing. reports in millville now changing over to just rain and moving towards atlantic city also sea isle city down to wild wood and cape may. it's all rain here and extreme south jersey. take a look at green. now starting to kind of invade places like salem to pits grove and as we move in and around camden country now we're looking at freezing rain some sleet and that transition zone continues to move towards philadelphia and points far northwest still looking at snowfall around reading and also moving towards allentown area.
7:17 am
perkasie, moving towards doylestown and newtown still looking at snow. watch how temperatures continue to climb and by 10 a.m. we're looking at moderate to heavy rainfall. that yellow that you see, that indicates a moderate cold rain, 36 millville and 34 atlantic city and low 40 wild wood and take a look around philadelphia by 10 a.m., 34. we're looking at cold rain. but temperatures far north and west will still likely be below freezing for several more hour hours. so, that's where ice will linger. by noon we're talking temperatures areawide above freezing and lingering showers, cloud cover this afternoon into evening and rising temperatures and also a little bit of fog across the area. so take a look at weekend wendy high impact and oosy roads and slushy mess out there early this morning and so delays some of those saturday errands if you can by 11:00 and moving toward the midday hours.
7:18 am
leftover shower and moderate impact there need umbrella and rain gear as we move towards evening events looking much better. but you'll have to watch out for a little bit of fog. so improving conditions as we continue into the day and afternoon. and so a live look outside of our studios kind of slshy, icy mess on market street right now. you can see we're being looking at freezing rain. look at the dripping right now just outside of that light there as you look into the left side of the television screen. 30 degrees. watching critical temperatures and temperatures will be rising so we're talking about wintry mix right now and lingering showers by he a.m. and then by 2bg, it's cloudy and we're looking at leftover drizzle. allentown, that wintery mix will last longer there with the temperatures staying below freezing at least until the afternoon. so that's why the winter weather advisory is in effect there the longest. so saturday morning, snow, ice, afternoon drizzle, fog, and then near 60 as we move towards
