>> we are missing most of the system affecting folks in the country, katie. >> that is true. this is nothing far enough north that our area does get affected by it. so we're not completely in the clear but philadelphia a i think will just be right on the edge, out there, so that is the spectation anyway. for now that is tempes starting to creep up the coast, and because it is cold enough we have snow out there as well as a wintry mixing taking place. we will have details on that for you here, winter weather advisories posted until 1:00 p.m. for some of us. we will have details in the next few minutes. guys, back to you. back to some breaking news in bensalem bucks county where police pursuit of two burglary suspects lead to the crash. >> one suspect was taken in custody but another is still out there "eyewitness news" reporter jan carabao joinses from the bensalem will police department with the very latest, j a an. >> reporter: ukee and erika, good morning. very busy morning for bensalem police and other area
police departments and police pursuit ended in a crash with the suspect running away again, one of these suspects has been caught this morning, the the other is still on the loose. take a look at this video. this is suspect's car that ended up in a ditch at intersection of state road and tennis avenue in bensalem. this started around one there 30 as a burglary call. there was a short police pursuit that ended here. once the two burglary suspects crashed their car authorities say they ran in the woods. there was a large police presence earlier in the morning. authorities called in k-9 units and heat seeking equipment in the search. within of the two have been caught by police but that second suspect is still at large. this scene is near grand view apartments and police were checking that area as well this morning. the car has new been towed a away and the scene is cleared. it is unclear the details about this pursuit especially where it started but we did see electronics in the back of the car. that is perhaps what they were
after. we do expect a lot more information coming from bensalem police later this morning. we are reporting live from the bensalem police department, jan carabao for cbs-3 "eyewitness news". right now 4:33. lets get back to katie and we can hear about the forecast. >> lets start off with the here and new is too what is happening with storm scan three. it is generally quiet across most of the board. this is what i was worried about yesterday. the these systems, they are tricky guys especially ones that develop right at the very last second. that is what happened here. it wasn't until yesterday evening that we had much to track on radar. now we do. this one, oops there it was it popped out of the no where and now creeping just far enough north to affect some of our viewing area. so notice, these are outer band really. any precipitation we find will be generally light, you have to go down in the southern most del marva before we are looking at significant precipitation but this is all sort of the rotating through our southern most counties and
until 1:00 o'clock today, cape may, kent, sussex this dell will wear and a few of them in maryland, better part of the state in the winter weather advisory as a result. we are looking at a wintry mix of some rain sleet, snow and possibility of slick travel. how much are we talking? not a lot. enough to slow you down. this is absolutely a a nuisance is tell for us, not a major storm. but if your travels take you down the shore many of the shore points and across salem, cumberland, southern counties, you will even up with that possibility of slick travel. further are north maybe a flurry around in philadelphia but as we stand temperatures are cold enough that any presip that does fall will come down as snow at least initially but we will be hovering around freezing in the hours ahead. that means we will have potential mixing taking place. watch for slick travel here. thinks a half and half forecast. what we are looking at is for philadelphia you can see a flurry around. further north you will just have clouds and a little
sunshine but further south you go it is a whole different ballgame, variety the tore use. >> thanks, katie. good morning. the a as we wait on that precipitation, maybe, we will be in the clear on the roads. we are not dealing with any major problems. the as katie said you could find potential slick spots on your commute. not only on the majors but throughout the neighborhood. just be careful out there looking at ben franklin bridge there are in delays in either direction. all bridges are moving extremely well this morning. it is only 4:30 in the morning. we are in the dealing with too many delays at this time. we are still waiting to are that rush hour commute. but every where still in the clear. 476 is another great picture of barely anyone out there, traveling. if you are traveling around mid county toll plaza traveling around schuylkill, i-95, speed sensors are moving very well. i would imagine so if in these areas why we are seeing slower speed then we would see in the 50, 55 miles an hour is because folks are taking it easy a as they should but
we're still in the green and no delays for mass transit ukee. happening today classes are canceled at nazareth academy grade school in northeast philadelphia a school officials a say a number of student were out sick monday and tuesday so as a precaution the school is close today so cleaning crews can disinfect building. the classes are expected to resume tomorrow. central bucks school board votes to fire a guidance counselor who posted a threatening message on facebook. board voted in favor with one opposed to terminate mary kate blankenberg who has been than leave with pay since december 8th after this facebook post a appeared on her profile. it read if my child cannot get to eagles game because of protesters, i will personally shoot everyone of them. you have been warn idiots. >> i thought it was troubling inappropriate, and threatening. the manner in which she responded to my conversations
with her about her decisions were deeply problematic. >> she's a huge looks to the community and she made one big mistake for which i think she did pay a price. >> because she lives in montgomery county the district attorney's office reviewed the facebook post and determined no criminal charges were warranted. woman is shot and killed waiting for the bus in north philadelphia police do not say that this was a random killing. shooting happened in broad daylight at 12th and jefferson. investigators tell us that 56 year-old kim jones was on her way to work when a gunman walk up and shot her in the back of the head. her family says that they want justice. >> for a person who, you know, never had any enemies and like i said was born and raised around everybody, everybody knew who she was, she caught the the bus every morning to work so it is like who would. >> investigators don't know why jones was targeted. they are looking at nearby surveillance video to help
solve this murder. police charged a mount laurel man with killing his wife. kyle crosby was arraigned by video in mount holly. he is charge with the murder of the 26 year-old, his wife, erika crippen, and endangering the lives of her two children. crosby was apprehendedded in brooklawn after driving crippen's car. investigators are now searching for her body. she has not the been seen force two weeks. her family says close another won't happen until they can bury the young mother. >> no way i will allow him and his family to leave us out there, without nothing. no erika. >> crosby is being held on 1.2 million-dollar bail. a week after a terror attack on a french magazine and act of defiance charlie hebdo where a dozen people have been killed has released a a new addition that has drawn criticism and threats of more violence. latest version has caricature of the prophet mohammad on the

in the forecast. you have to account for the poconos verse city verse south of that down the shore and that is one of the days where we have a split difference depending where you are. >> lets get to it. >> exactly. would i say basically further south you are more likely you will see precipitation today. when it does come through it will be a mix of some sleet some snow some rain, could see a all of those represented by all three colors available here on storm scan three. so depending on the temperature profile it could be any of those three things a mix of those three things and as we go throughout the day it will lead to some slick travel. it would appear it is making a beeline for rest of the delaware valley but because it is rotate ago way you won't to have worry about any snow or presip further north you go, lehigh valley fine poconos in the clear, philadelphia i think at worst we're talking a flurry maybe a snow shower but even that it would have to get going for that and we don't think it is going to.
how much snow are we talking here. you have to go far south to find any and even there coating to an inch max. that is where we have winter weather advisory posted cape may, kent, sussex counties out over delaware states and points to the south and west of that. temperatures as they stand are on the chilly side. cold enough to produce snow but it is relatively light in terms of moisture content because we are on the outskirts. while there will be rain in philadelphia, you might see a flurry otherwise cloudy and cold. high hits 32. clearing skies for everyone tonight. that system will move out to sea and then it the is done. we will clear out nicely. to 22 degrees for the low. we will look forward to the forecast. we have been promising this nice warming trend. 40 degrees seems so warm to us at this point. that is what we will see by saturday. saturday is a a nice day. by sunday even milder but, of course, is there a trade off. here it is chance for some
