4:02 am
we are taking a break at the moment. this treeing rain advisory is until 10:00 a.m. for carbon, monroe, northampton but lehigh county can get freezing rain as well. here in philadelphia we are well above freezing. we're only expecting rain this morning. the not much of it until later this morning. sunrise at 7:03. you cane mount pocono is only 33 degrees. thirty-six at the surface in allentown but some of that rain could be frozen as it the is falling. we have 43 degrees in philadelphia look at the how mild in dover, wildwood, 50, already. so we could get up to 61 with rain throughout the afternoon and evening, on and off, not continuing, throughout the day , but just enough to make a little bit the of the mess but it is, at least, mild outside, for to us day, bob kelly. >> sound good, sue, 4:02. think yesterday was that hooky day for folks after the big super bowl parties. we didn't have a busy morning rush. rest of the day was kind of quiet, no problems at the
4:03 am
moment as we get the in to or out of downtown philadelphia we have a fire location in kensington and jasper and tioga, construction crews out on 422, out near route 23, but again, this is going to be a tough take for septa. let's roll video from our news vans all over the lays yesterday. have of course those cracks found on the trains on sunday, septa, held a press briefing yesterday around 1:30. here's the bottom line. they have pulled 60 cars off of the fleet, from the crack that was found in a main support beam underneath a number of the market frankford line cars. the scenario, they don't know what caused it. they are looking for the best fix at the moment, and let's come back to the maps because for morning rush hour here's what we can expect, longer gap s between the trains, platforms overcrowding, and same scenario as yesterday but i think we will have more people to tiehl with today as everyone is heading back to
4:04 am
work. they have shuttle bus service in play during both the morning and evening rush hours so there will be trains and buses, rolling the same routes between 69th street all the way up to the frank for transportation center and terminal. thomas and karen back to you. >> bob, thank you. 404:67:89 we are following breaking news out of north philadelphia where a fast moving fire forced several people right outside of their homes. lets get to lauren johnson on the scene this morning. hi there, lauren. >> reporter: good morning, thomas. entire neighborhood is awake here at this hour, fire crews were very busy overnight in north philadelphia, two fires broke out here but you can see crews are still on the scene here at this one here on jasper street, the fire affecting two homes at the home where that fire started, one person was able to escape without any injuries. three people made it out of another home where a fire spread, we are looking at video that we shot overnight the here. since flames were moving so fast fire fighters did evacuate other homes nearby as
4:05 am
a safety recaution, it took crews almost an hour to get the fire under control. only casualty of this was a family dog that did not make it out of this home, in time. so again back out here live fire crew is still on the scene here, fire marshall is on the scene investigating the cause of the the fire. l and i has been called out to inspect the home, jasper street is shut down as fire crews continue their work and people, wide awake on this street at this hour trying to look and see what happened to their neighbor's homes. thomas and karen. we have another fire in north philadelphia under investigation about 11:00 o'clock last night scene right the there there is joyce street. good news is the family was able to make it out safely but fire fighters rushed into rescue two pets. this was a strange one people in rittenhouse square, will likely be thinking about this one as they helped out to where ever they are going. the it was complete chaos yesterday after somebody carrasquillo jacked a cab and takes it on a ride through and
4:06 am
in and around the park. steve keeley, a guy who was not wearing any clothes. >> reporter: he was naked except he was wearing this cab the rittenhouse turned into a mad house right around school is letting out. this park, really, surrounded by high rise, as everybody knows, so any high pitched sound gets echoed and amplified. it was the sound before the sight of the carjacked cab that created these skid marks in the the on the street the but right here on the the sidewalk right through middle of the park. we have so many peoples attention and then philadelphians do what the the best philadelphians do. not ignore it, in the wait for cops to live but step in like center city super men well, the lady cab passenger that really became, a passenger for about 22nd not the too far after she got in the cabbies
4:07 am
okay, scraped up but okay and she and everyone else around here who knows how busy and how dog walkers, commuters and park goers here on a nice sunny day like yesterday, how much worse this all could have been if those loud screeching tires didn't warn all to dive and run out of the way and all those guys didn't run not away but toward this cab, and stop the guy. >> he just took off in the cab from this entrance he drive all over the park. >> we hear all this screeching he was trying, in a taxi trying to run everybody over. as soon as we saw everybody jumped in the bushes. he came across the street, hit another car, tried to back out the as soon as he tried to stop, he was about to reverse in the barnes and noble. so bunch of us just pulled him out and held him down until police got here. he was name. when we pulled him out he is mentally ill take me to the
4:08 am
hospital. >> reporter: cops got him some pants and got him to the hospital, and count on all those guys getting some police commendations, well deserved. this is one of the cases, thomas and karen, what would i do. you would hope you would hope you would do what those guys did to get that guy to stop because this could have been so much worse more you think bit. >> amazing how many people sprung into action. steve keeley, thank you. time is 4:08. fate of the president trump's partial travel ban the in the hand of the federal appellate court and the conflict could make its way all the way to the supreme court. this afternoon, san francisco based ninth circuit court of appeals will hear from lawyers from the federal government, and the states suing the trump administration. washington and minnesota says the ban is discriminatory and harms residents, the trump administration argues it is a matter on have national security. >> we need strong programs so that people that love us and

4:16 am
where it is raining or freezing raining and this is where it is raining down to the south of us, a little line of rain moving there delaware, central part into southern new jersey, so we will get light rain at the shore, right now. not getting it now, you will before the morning is through. you can see around mount pocono, phillipsberg, the possibility of freezing rain, cape may, light rain, probably , not too much in the atlantic city at the moment but not getting into the moment you will get it by end of the morning, rainy mean and that will continue through middle of the day and that is when we will have worst of it. we may see sunshine once that rain clears out around 3:00 in the afternoon and then another round of rain on wednesday with just a real quick one with a warm front and then we really see a big change because wednesday we could get to a record high temperature in the 60's, by thursday morning, we're talking about the possibility of snow. this is what we have right now
4:17 am
for our commuter models subject to change by 2:00 in the morning we have accumulating snow spreading through the philadelphia area and little bit to the north, little bit to the south and those cold temperatures could bring the snow even further south, by about 5:00 in the morning. so all this happening thursday morning rush hour just when we get you ready for possibility of the big mess by then but that computer model, subject to change. we will see how it plays out, closer to the time. 43 degrees is the time right now in philadelphia we will take that. only rain. thirty-three in mount pocono. forty-three in philadelphia wednesday's forecast high is 63 degrees. record is 63. it it was set in 1925, seven day forecast has 60's today and tomorrow. thirty's for thursday with that morning snow. and then a high of only 33 degrees on friday. the this is roller coaster ride we have been talking about but look at weekend temperatures go backup again

repairs, in eta when this will be fixed. the lets come back to the maps yesterday was a light rush hour because of the super bowl today we will see longer gaps and we will see more people packing on to the platforms. septa has shuttle bus services in play for both morning and evening rush hour so basically the trains will run, all trains, making all stops and then shuttle bus services running that same route, during the peak travel times touring rush hour so they will have septa personnel at each station and if the platforms get crowded or say the train bypasses that platform, commuters will have an option to take shuttle bus services. they have a two for one session here until we can get you through rush hour and hopefully get a handle on when those trains will be put back into services. otherwise regional rail lines no problems at least for the moment getting out of the gate , karen and thomas back to you. 4:20. it is hard to wrap your
