4:04 am
rain, that wintery mix and people needed both the shovels and the scrapers. they saw in gridlock traffic trying to make it home from work. one person told it is took 45 minutes to go 2 miles freezing rain; one of the worse driving conditions, as the temperature fluctuates, roads can become icy quickly without warning. people tell us that they've had enough of winter so far. we expect this system to continue to change throughout the next couple every days, snow is expected tomorrow. so we will expect to see people at stores like this picking up all of the storm gear shovels salt, milk, bread. it is unclear at this point in time how much snow we could get. chris, lauren? >> jennifer joyce, we'll see thank you. >> remember, you can get the latest forecast and travel conditions at our website just click on the weather tab. so, word on the streets eagles have trade lesean mccoy. >> reportedly going to the buffalo bills. fox 29's steve keeley now live

4:06 am
but let's look at last night's video at the cats jewish community center in cherry hill incident lip eagles head coach everybody says is now the wizard of oz for this team, since they don't have a gm any longer, is pulling the strings and pulling all of the deals. and he did not talk about this at all. and if you were listening to howards eskin last night he said he went to this thing tried to get a comment from the head coach and he said, quote, his security goons wouldn't let any of the reporters near him. so, we had to get our comments from the listeners and from the hoses of the show's here at wip. and here is big daddy graham talking with us earlier today about how the whole world is changed in sports, since he and bring kids, and players stayed with teams for a whole career. >> since december, like, tenth, no jimmy rollins no michael carter williams, no shady mccoy no todd herremans, no trent cole, no braydon coburn, who was the
4:07 am
longest tenured flyer here in town no kimmo continue man all in less than three months. yep, if you're saying you remember the way it used to be when players stayed here for awhile, i think they are making a mistake, big daddy's big rule of thumb you never trade for players who just missed an entire season like alonso did to look like shady might have lost his stuff last year? ya maybe but that's one year, he is only 26. i was too long rose the dice he would still have something left in the tank for at least couple of more years left to go. so shady you gave us a lot of good time here, as did herremans, as did trent cole. i got to throw those names into the mix here, too, they were great eagles. >> reporter: kerry williams, by the way so in 24 hours four veteran players out of here. the eagles kind of looking like the sixers. i tweeted last night the eagles let the sixers gm be eagles gm for the day. we saw more wheeling and
4:08 am
dealing, if i can go back to my childhood again that i saw watching let's make a deal on tv in the 60s and 70s, with the then host monte hall. few people might age will get that joke. >> i remember jean rayburn too, had the super long skinny microphone. remember that thing stief? >> that was match game. that will was match game. game shows yes. >> i don't think anyone will miss kerry williams back to football, but some of the other guys, trent cole specially and shady. we'll see what chip's doing. thanks so much. >> chris, the only thing more wide open than kerry williams' mouth were the receivers he covered. so you're right nobody will miss him. >> very good. 4:08 is the time. happening today, a judge will rule on whether to approve the sale of the revel florida developer, for $82 million. >> but a 11th bid enters by los angeles velcro complicate matters two. previous deals to sell the casino fell through. revel, which cost $2.4 billion to build, clogs in the

4:10 am
middle class. the idea of pennsylvania is the idea that all things are possible. and if we work together, there is nothing we can't accomplish. >> governor wolf says under his plan, the tax burden on the average middle class home own we are drop by about 13%. >> police in reading are investigating several reported attempted child lurings including four in just the last two days. investigators say in the most recent case, it happened yesterday, when a 13 year old was walking along spring street, heading to reading high school. authorities say a man asked a girl to get into his pick-up truck. she ran away. police say they've had about 15 cases reported since january, and find it hard to build a pattern. >> un for the lip, you could say that they're all connected and one person, i can't say that. the descriptions have varied from the number of suspects, the vehicles driven what's being said. >> detectives released an image after man wanted for one of many attempted lurings in the suburbs.

4:13 am
4:14 am
4:15 am
>> it is 4:15, we're grooving this morning you know why? chris is out of the studio. sue, just you and i and earth wind and fire. you had some trouble getting out of your driveway this morning? >> couple of hours ago it, wasn't quite above freezing yet. so my entire street was a sheet of ice. ended up having to meet our dear wonderful executive producer at the bottom of my street. he came to pick me up. my husband and i we had to ride on our butt, basically you could get traction on the grass, but the driveway, forget about it, the street, forget about it. that was then, this is now. you still could be dealing with this in carbon monroe county. still have the winter weather advisory in effect until 6:00 a.m. in those northern and western places, where temperatures are still not
4:16 am
quite above freezing, just now, issued winter storm warning for tonight through tomorrow night for the chance of accumulating snow. and it is a pretty good chance, because once the warning goes out yes pretty sure. than is, let's get right to it 5208 inches possible tomorrow in the philadelphia area. if you're north and west of philadelphia, three to 5 inches so, this is a case where the further south you go the more snow you will see. and the question now is when are we going to change this rain over to snow? and when the change happens how long it will last. we still need couple of factors to come into play for all of this to play out the way we're thinking. but as we look right now we do see pretty much just rain in our area. as we look at the future cast, we look ahead we see throughout the rest of the day, it is on and off rain. combined with warmer temperatures melting snow corks see areas of flooding, promise you ponding. after 10:00 tonight we start
4:17 am
to watch for the change over from rain back to snow, then accumulating snow throughout the morning on thursday, that would be tomorrow so we had the chance to get to either the low end or the high end of that five to 8 inches. temperatures right now have finally gone above freezing, in a lot of places, still at freezing, in mount pocono, but now we're at 35 in philadelphia. windchills in the 20's. that will get bert. won't be talking about windchills for the rest of the morning. so our foxcast for today has rain high of around 40 degrees, and then tonight we're down into the 20's, as the rain changes over to snow, probably in the middle of the night say any time after midnight. that's a look at your weather authority forecast for today. would do promise a better weekend. between now and then, bob kelly, we'll have a lot of adventures. hope nobody is going do what i did this morning. >> i think we have video being fed in of sue sliding in on the grass we'll get to that in the next half hour.
