at holme avenue, right there, pennypack circle, nazareth hospital, in the outer drive. so headed north this morning, stay to the inner drive to avoid any delays. otherwise, we're in good shape up and down the blue route. no problems on the schuylkill expressway or i-95. as we heard lauren mention, down at the airport, air travel will not be impacted today. we will get you there on time, take off on time, and getting your bags could be totally different story. keep that in mind if you are headed down to the airport. we checked the tote board. all flight so far so good running with no delays at the airport. chris, kerry, back to you. >> keep our fingers crossed. >> 4:19 right now. temple police arrest add man they say tried to rob a student near cam pulls. >> this makes the seventh student targeted in a week police haven't arrested anyone unless those previous robberies. >> former president bill clinton says president obama is on, quote, pretty firm legal ground, over immigration. his comment came last night as
the president prepares today to announce executive actions to fix broken immigration system. the president's orders will shield about 5 million people from deportation. republicans warn, this could be an over reach of the president's constitutional authority. so, they're preparing to fight this, by possibly slashing funds tide to the president's plans. we'll of course keep you posted on this one. >> secret service meanwhile arresting a man after finding rifle ammunition and knife in the trunk of his car. prosecutor charged this man from eye we with having unregistered firearm. he grabbed the attention of the secret service when he walked right up and told them that somebody in iowa told him to drive to the white house. this of course follows series of high profile security lapses on the white house grounds over the past few months. >> sentencing scheduled for today for soldier convicted every killing his girlfriend yesterday. military jury convicted sergeant of killing sergeant

month. so what happened here? well, cory apparently entered a consulting agreement to manage ryan's affairs. when ryan went to end the agreement, his brother sued, and then ryan counter sued. so it has become this ugly mess within the ryan howard family over billing bucks -- big bucks. we'll have much more on that still to come. meantime, four new jersey high school football assistant coaches suspended a mid hazing and sexual assault scandal, now they get to keep their teaching jobs. >> this is interesting. the say err ville school board has decided to reinstate these guys, as teachers, but the school board did not make a recommendation about their suspended head coach. all of the coaches have been suspended with pay since last month. prosecutors have charged seven players with hazing and sexual assaulting four teammates inside the lockerroom. no coaches face charges. >> ♪ 4:26. terrifying moment as florida state university is put on

15 degrees milder in atlantic city, and millville, so the winds, got to factor those in, but coming from different direction now most from the south. that's helping keep us a little bit miler, tan will get us into the 40's, instead of the 30's today. but, you factor in the wind, tan does feel chillier. so you still have to make sure you have your warm coat on today. 29 degrees, is the windchill in philadelphia, right now. feels like 30 in wildwood. watching little bit of pink showing up on saturday light radar picture, really reflection of the clouds, and the colder, upper levels of the atmosphere, so we don't see any precipitation there. we do still seymour dumping on buffalo, new york, we will talk about that in a little bit. so, 36, feels like 29, 6:51 is our sunrise time. breaking down the day for you, we will be in the lower 30's by 9:00. we will probably reach early high of 43 degrees today. maybe around lunchtime. and then a colder air moves in again, so we get another

extensive damage. >> i lived in kennel square for 45 years, and this house has always been a fixture of kenneth. and it is registered historic house. it is a shame for the damage. >> so beautiful, as well. one of the tenants tells us this local landmark is dividend multiple units. he actually had an apartment and an art studio inside. he is hoping to save his work. the home is now boarded up and the red cross is assisting. >> so more trouble in atlantic city, troubled gaming industry taking another big hit. toronto company that was planning to buy the revel casino has backed out. the reason, a disagreement among company bondholders. you may remember that the revel shutdown in september. four atlantic city casinos have closed this year with another set for next month. it is costing thousands of workers their jobs. >> in a statement about it, atlantic city mayor done guardian said although brookfield would have been a good fit for atlantic city, we'll continue to attract new

direction. so we are seeing slightly milder temperatures today, nothing is helping those folks, though, up around the areas of western new york, which have been hammered with snow, and they're getting more cold air moving across the lake today. that machine is cranking up again with another one of those snow bands that's moved back south again. but this time the city of buffalo actually being affected. they hadn't got answer very high snowfall total up until now. 36 degrees in philadelphia, that's better than yesterday at 29 in lancaster, 24 in mount pocono, we have 37 degrees in dover and 39 in wildwood. but you can factor in the winds, most of our temperatures do feel like they're in the 20's to around 30 degrees, so you still have to bundle up today. seeing cold but not as cold. as we look at our temperature trend, and check on that temperature from yesterday, we got to 36 degrees, but that 36 degrees came at about 11:30 at night. during the day we did indeed kind of top off at about 33. fifty-three is where we should be for kick off time for the
