of the a cloud in the sky right now and these cooler temperatures in the 30's in reading and mount pocono will have have the chance to rebound, with time here, so you are flirting with 50 at the airport and we should easily rebound, we think up to at least close to 07 in most spots here today and we have a lot of variation down at the shore towns, 30's and 40's and 50's, it just depend where you are right now but regardless would i say today dress in layers because as of 9:00 a.m. we're still only in the the 50's and eventually rebounding nicely to the mid to upper 60's throughout the course of the afternoon to the point that we do think we will 70 degrees. so again, meisha not much to complain about with the forecast here today. >> no, not much you can complain about at all, other than what you're looking at behind me. what we're looking at is live chopper three over emergency construction to replace three suspension ropes on the delaware memorial bridge. we have been talking about this all morning long. the it is in joke. three out of four southbound lanes are closed so only one is opened. it started yesterday.

a series in that fashion. it the is very unlikely but it has to start with one win. flyers captain claude giroux sees the issues. >> i think we try to do too much we get into too much trouble and in the past we have been doing that, we will stick with the game plan, we don't have to do anything special but just be able to win some puck battles, bring it to the net and try to grind it out a little bit. >> on top of the game at hand we unfortunately have to ask the question how will flyers fans behave in game number three. hundreds through their light up bracelets on the ice. i was at ice level. i was nearly hit by them. the flyers, as we can imagine will in the give out bracelets for game number four. that, of course, an unfortunately ugly moment for fan base but as far as the game goes, they have to score goals, they have two through three games, basically pathetic. they have to look for a possible goalie change it could be michael neuvirth in for steve may sun we will find
out later on, good game, they need one, tough start. >> we have to be positive and think forward. >> let's be positive. >> i like that outlook. >> thanks, pat. jet blue is making it easier to take a nap before take off. >> they unveiled four nap pods at jfk airport and it looks futuristic reclining chairs. they play designed to bring relaxation and reduce distractions. i say we get one of these in the studio. >> i agree we will put it on the side here. coming up an artistic way for kids to enjoy young artists. >> young artists are behind the new line of fashionable scarves, they are hoping that they will help other children like them, in this weeks story of brotherly love when we come right back. >> reporter: a decade of service, one south jersey waitress is being honored in a very special way, after calling this her second home because she's work here for 50 years, it is an announcement
