nothing extreme at this point. but it looks like we will see a change over in the last couple of minutes, from rain to some light snow, over in new jersey, around gloucester and glassboro. so again, could be a little bit slippery no matter what precipitation you have, and allow yourself extra time today. 39 degrees is our current temperature. 70:00 is our sunrise time. other temperatures to show you, they are all pretty much above freezing, at the surface except mount pocono where we have five. we will not see precipitation up there. thirty-seven in wilmington. thirty-nine in wildwood. these temperatures are as much a as 22 degrees colder then yesterday. 14 degrees colder in philadelphia and in millville, new jersey. this morning. winds are now out of the north and that is the reason. cold winds coming from the north with those 14 miles an hour winds and we expect after yesterday's mild start to the december, and high of
65 degrees, we will probably end up averaging 40 degrees with some snow and sleet changing over to rain. so that is your forecast for todays, now, it is time to check on the roadways. i guess that leaving early advise is is a good idea. >> leave early and leave extra wiggle room between you a and that bumper in front of you. 4:32 on this tuesday. it will be a tricky morning commutes, already some roads are wet, you are dealing with some flurries in our camera. and just rain depending upon where you begin and end your trip. this is a live look at route 30 white horse pike on the new jersey side catching glare off road surface. that is a sign that things are wet here this morning. this is a live look at schuylkill expressway near south street. schuylkill damp and wet from king of prussia all the way through south philadelphia. then we will take a ride on that cue kill leaving south jersey up and over that walt whitman bridge, expect slower than normal speeds on all major roadways this morning. so give yourself some extra

morning. >> reporter: main street in manayunk is considered one of philadelphia's mess safe spots, you run up and back down around mile 20 in the philly marathon held just before shane vanished from this street. in bars on the businesses here, no trash on the streets. no empty abandoned buildings. now lit up for christmastime. but season just isn't the same this year. six days and still no new clue on what happened to shane after he stepped on to this sidewalk here and hasn't been seen i have sense. his family overwhelmed with anxiety is also overwhelmed by something special. where the season of giving in philadelphia's finest side are both showing strong, support in the search effort has been in the hundreds of volunteers here, and now support to cover any cost in their search is in the thousands of dollars. this go fund me page started by dana costa hoping to raise 7500 went over 9,000 bucks almost instantly. 190 downers and growing.
the reward fund for a tip for information leading to something, about shane is also growing now over $30,000, with shane's family and investigators feeling it is a tip that is the key to solving this case. that someone, some people knowing on that can lead to shane. >> we know somebody had seen him since then. there are hundreds of people walking out of the bars on one of the biggest drinking nights in the country and in the year. there are no words to describe the pain and heartache that we feel every minute. we have moments where we are hopeful. yesterday when canal came up and was not in the canal and moments of the deepest despair that you can ever, ever imagine and no parents should have this heartache and no one would ever believe the night mayor that we are living as a family and a community. we have no idea what has
happened to our shane. it is almost as if he rannish and people don't vanish. so someone has to come forward and tell us what we need so we can be redirect to find him. >> reporter: not adding to the reward yet surprisingly is shane's school west chester university where he is in his senior year and did not return to classes like all of his fellow fellow students did yesterday after the thanksgiving day break. west chester university student government association did step up, adding a thousand to the reward fund, and tomorrow night on the steps of the student union hall holding a candle light vigil at 6:00 p.m. a night that will mark one week since shane was last seen going out with his friend, something they'd love to cancel if he some house shows up before then. as we come back live, you cane one continuing in the lit here manayunk christmas tree, they canceled tree lighting ceremony understandably over the weekend. chris and kerry, can you
imagine a greater christmas gift than shane montgomery coming back to his family alive with some tail, to tell about what happened to him. >> we are hoping that is the the case, but a week later. >> yes, time goes on. >> we lose hope. >> yes, steve, thank. shopping for a christmas tree is a time honored tradition for a lot of families but this year you may notice certain varieties of trees are not as plentiful. >> you know what variety i go for good what is that. >> the cheapest variety. >> short supply of trees from the pacific northwest, like the mormon and mormon fur and noble tree? the rivas family has been selling christmas trees for more than three years. they say problems with supplies, to blame for the shortage. the reevees are selling them, and they are selling to other vendors. the goal, it is to keep customers happy to and get what they cannon to their lots. >> i noticed that trees were smaller this year then they
had been and a little bit more expensive. >> and less full. >> less full. >> happening now red cross helping family forced from their home by a suspect firebomb. how they with their neighbors are coming to grip with what happened. and then to the surprise of the life time, that was a proper home coming one vietnam war vet yan never got the thanks that he deserved.
a germantown home hit with what police believe are firebombs. these devices forced eight people outside into the street early yesterday morning, two row homes at colter and had to make a mad dash to escape when a suspect firebomb ignited these flames. resident are happy to be safe but they are furious, about what happened here. >> they are cowards. they are really cowards. it is really scary. because you never know, you know, what might happen, or what could have happened or what did happen. >> why would somebody did that? fire department immediately put the flames out and that is when investigators took over. red cross found these residents a place to stay at least until the damage is repaired. crews are cleaning up after a mud slide closed a major highway in malibu just north of los angeles. area endured heavy rains over weekend flooding streets and causing rock and mud to fall on to pch. the highway will remain closed while crews go to work and
night we only had lancaster county involved. now we have berks, lehigh, northampton, carbon an monroe but you see the times, doesn't even kick in until 1:00 o'clock and goes until 10:00 o'clock tonight. you can see north ape west of the city where we don't have precipitation at the moment but thinks all expected to lift northward by the in middle and end of the day and that is when things could get a little slippery around those places. i think we will just see rain around here. it looks a lot worse then it is here on ultimate doppler radar but having said that things could get slippery out there with wet roadways, and some flakes and flurries flying around down in southern chester county maybe around east nottingham around wilmington delaware. here in the city we're seeing very light rain but you can see purple changing over to white in newark, delaware, so we may see light snow flakes down there it is rain, only rain, to the south of us in southern delaware and southern new jersey. so a quick look at the future cast shows maybe a break in the action later on this morning, a change over to rain, all of the precipitation
lifts northward by noon. we are seeing a mix around the metro area and northern and western suburbs but that quickly changes over to rain and it is not even that much of it but those aforementioned counties in the lehigh valley, reading, say lancaster, you could see a mix kind of lingering and making it for slippery travel for the evening rush hour. and then rain isn't over just yet, by eight or nine or ten or 11:00 at night and may linger in the early hours of tomorrow morning. so the temperature trend over the past five daises certainly gone up, yesterday was delightful with 65 degrees for the first dade of december, very unusual of course. we will look to the seven day forecast, no more 65-degree temperatures but we are back to average by tomorrow. high of only 45 degrees today. so remember to bundle uptighter this morning, bob kelly, it is chilly. >> bundled up. exactly. remine the kids. 4:46 on a tuesday. hit and miss depending upon where you begin and end your trip but i'll bet you a jelly
doughnut we will all be behind the eight ball as fares delays this morning. the here's a live look at delaware, i-95 right here near 495 split, the lower end of the south of delaware, again, where rain is already causing some slippery road conditions and wet roads pretty much with you little further north you come, thinks i-95 in northeast philadelphia, dry as a bone right here. so again depending upon where you begin and end your trip for the moment you may see wet roads. you may see dry roads. maybe snow flakes out here on 202 at route 309 right here near five points. up and down the new jersey side where we are seeing precipitation right now 295, the new jersey turnpike, watch for slower than normal speeds and that is going to set the tone for the rest of the morning rush hour, where the rain. the schuylkill expressway in the bad at the moment coming into downtown. ninety-five out of the north east, in problems coming up from west chester, again some flakes, light snow flurries through that malvern interchange and possible weather delays at philly international today, so just
