we're talking delaware river here. here, in trenton there were flooding issued yesterday after a ice jam caused the river to overflow in the road, as a result part of the route 29 was shut down and if you are familiar with this area you know route 29, feed trenton's capitol region and today, new jersey's next governor will be sworn in and that could get tricky with the road in and around the state capitol building, first blocked off in this area. so people living here aren't really bothered by that. they are amazed by the spec particular california. >> all of the bridges, ice hits the bridge. >> it is incredible. i was upstream a little bit and it didn't look too bad. then i headed down this way, norrisville, and toward trenton and it looks like it will get much, much worse. >> yeah. >> reporter: so, as that guy just mentioned across the delaware over in morrisville pennsylvania, same issues river road living up to its name under water over there jeff cole spent the afternoon
there yesterday. right now no homes are threatened but this could get much worse, because as sue said there is a fast moving clipper system that moves in the area tonight into tomorrow bringing more light snow and that could make matters worse. jared showing you what you can see of the ice jam out here. kind of hard to see in the dark but we know at this hour it is still causing some trouble up here in trenton. we will keep an eye on it and bring you very latest, thomas and karen, as soon as we get it. >> take it slow as we do with another round here, lauren, flooding is a concern as people flocked to trenton for swearing into new jersey's 56th governor, democratic phil murphy suck set chris christie it will be held at 11:30 at trenton war memorial followed by murphy's inaugural speech. the inaugural ball is set for 7:00 at met life stadium. you can watch swearing in right here on fox 29 we will stream the inauguration speech , at fox 29.com. and new jersey now, the second state in the country to
ban those controversial bump stocks. the bill signing was one of the last years, the bill signing was one of the last acts by outing governor chris christie. bump stocks are devices that allow semiautomatic weapons to fire hundreds of rounds continuously. it is also a las vegas gunman used in the deadly concert shooting. owners will have 90 days to surrender their bump stops or face five years in prison or a fine of up to $15,000. jury selection will begin today for allentown married he had pawlowski, because he is facing corruption charges and so he has a trial, jury selection will be here in the philadelphia area but he is up there, in allentown where he served four terms and many credit him for, renaissance and rebit there in allentown, prosecutors, say that he ran a pay to play scheme telling vendors he expected campaign contributions in return for city contracts. most serious charges carry a max prison term of 20 years
each while jury selection is here we will have the case and he maintains he is innocent. a man is dead after being shot twice overnight in north philadelphia police say they found the 27 year-old victim unresponsive at 12th and brown streets around 12:30 a.m. he was taken to hahnemann hospital where he died. witnesses tell officers that the shots were fired from a dark car, that fled that scene and developing this morning, some kensington a store security guard, shoots a suspect, after he allegedly robs a dollar store over on frankford avenue. police say guard confronted a rubber who had a knife. he didn't drop a weapon. guard use pepper spray. that didn't work either. he ended up shooting that suspect in the leg and once police got there the suspect still didn't comply. >> philadelphia police officers taserd, the suspect, and had no effect, suspect is still did not drop the knife. then the philadelphia police peppered sprayed him also, and have no effect, and he still
refused to drop the knife. at this point the philadelphia police showed a lot of restraint and they were able to rest will the knife from the 31 year-old suspect. >> so, now that suspect is charged with theft, aggravated assault, possession of the knife in stable condition at the hospital. here we go, count down is on this weekend's nfc title game just around the corner and guess what you could be there. tickets go on sale in just a few hours. our steve keeley is joining us from the linc this morning, hey there, steve. >> reporter: hi thomas i hope you told karen she missed the start of the pregame show which began yesterday at this time and it continues right now. win or lose, this sunday, this is going to be the last eagles game here at linc in this magical memorable season that may have more magic and memories to come. if you want to say i was there a limited number is phrase eagles are using of face value tickets go on sale in six hours, i should say, less than

that area, even though they will have so many accidents because they are not used to driving in that kind of weather, the light snow began falling yesterday afternoon, heavier snow expected today and combed air is expect to last all week. >> much of the country seeing extreme weather and here we go again sue serio another round of snow moving in. >> we already have winter weather advisories up in the for philadelphia but for areas north and west. if you live, anywhere, in this purple region then you'll likely see some snow today, if you are not, then it went happen until later on tonight. light snow mainly in the poconos, lehigh valley and maybe in northern bucks and montgomery, as well, it is a little part of the chester county. so tonight through wednesday, midday at the latest, some light snow here in philadelphia it is a clipper system. we are not expecting it to add up to much but unfortunate timing of the storm during rush hour tomorrow, about a couple inches in the city, three to 5 inches north and west of us.
here's the map to show you one of the estimates. maybe 1.8 in philadelphia, as much as six in the pocono mountains where they want the snow, four or three, in lancaster and reading, and then much less, south and east because we're expecting mixing with rain. we have a flood warning in effect for delaware river around trenton, morrisville, yardley we talked about that earlier with lauren and ice jams. this is a pretty large area of snow and also very nature i and it is as i mentioned earlier on our doorstep right now but expect to stay there we're not expect to go see during the day-to-day looking at the future cast it still has not snowing in philadelphia and suburbs, but it is snowing north and west, and then after 10, 11, 12:00 o'clock it then starts to snow, closer to the city, but we could see some mixing with rain because we're expect ago above freezing temperatures today, and that continues, there is 5:00 o'clock, there is a 6:00
o'clock all the way through 9:00 in the morning. we're thinking it is probably out of here by noon time at the latest, but that is the timing, of tomorrow's snow that could be mixed with some rain, why is that? because we're expect to go get to 42 degrees today and coming down from that above freezing high temperature, chillier air moves in after the snow end and we will get to a high of 33, on wednesday, and then probably some sunshine late in the day tomorrow after the snow in the morning. and 36 degrees on thursday and then we will get into our stretch of warming, 43 on friday, and 48 on saturday, and in the 50's on sunday, during the day, so for eagles game at night we will probably be in the upper 40's which isn't hot, but it certainly is more comfortable bob kelly then it was, last week. >> you got it, 4:18. we just got a message that said we just got a snow squall out here in downingtown. live look at the turnpike right here near downingtown
interchange. you can see the light snow just laying on the grassy surface, meanwhile, penndot they are outside overnight and through the day putting down that salt/brine solution. there is an example, that just rolled through downingtown and exton. so be prepared as you step outside that front door in the suburbs. i mentioned penndot putting down that salt/brine solution, they will do it up until 5:00 and take a break on the rush hour and throughout the midday putting down, again that solution, that will prevent first flakes from sticking. if you are traveling, first of all we have midwest travel mess. storm heading our way already coming through, texas. so that will cause, delays for arriving flights. so check with the airline even for tomorrow morning things could be rough. you may want to make those adjustments today and septa has a new schedule for all regional rail lines so make sure you have new timetable before you board the train, karen and thomas back to you.

at this time yesterday we had single digit wind chills and here comes a clipper system. it is on our doorstep but we don't expect most in the philadelphia area to see the snow, until, well after dark tonight. it is weird because we see it in lancaster county right now. there is your advisory for areas north and west of the city and cloudy skies throughout the day, a high of 42. it wouldn't be out of the question to see a little bit of the stray rain shower today and then snow starting after dark. that is your planner, for what is today, tuesday? and it is also, time to tell but our radio partner 101.1 more fm with all that great music and your weather authority forecast all morning long, on the radio. >> you got it. already, tuesday, first day back for all of the kid. everybody back to school, back to work, so that first day back is always crazy. here's a live look at schuylkill eastbound still block here right at 676 as part of the overnight road

penndot looks like it is getting ready to move that truck, come on we will open up that schuylkill and be ready to go for tuesday morning rush hour, karen and thomas back over to you. let's talk about those rising waters and frozen chunks of ice, not a good combination, they are creating dangerous conditions all along the delaware river, in fact, part of the route 29 shut down because of the ice jam, lets get out to lauren johnson joining us from trenton this morning, hi there, lauren. >> hey, thomas picture perfect for some people, unsightly annoyance for others but here's what is happening here. the road shut down in this area, due to those ice jams that are causing major headaches for drivers, yesterday, it is not too big of an issue being a federal holiday not as many people on the road but this morning could be a different story in trenton. lets lot at ice jam causing water to spill over the delaware river banks on to both side, we're on the new jersey side, national weather service reports multiple road closures, in and around, route
29 and we noticed it when we arrived here this morning. we can blame mother nature, for this, this melting, re freezing, major temperature fluctuations so ice jams happen when that frozen water melts and breaks away from the ice, flows down the river and then gets caught up sort of a turn on the river. this morning waters have receded off road but not without issue which have crews working extra hard to clear the icy road and some people are, coming to this area to capture memorable moments on theivt is beautiful. it is what it is made of. i just want to catch the ice as opposed to what i caught this summer with sunsets and send it to my daughter down off the gulf of mexico. >> reporter: sounds like a great place to be right now, no tropical weather here, in fact, we're expecting as sue mentioned a fast moving clip per system that will drop light accumulations of snow and that could add to the problem already happening out
here. another major issue today is the day, new jersey's new governor phil murphy is expect to be sworn in. it will happen in that building right here, right off have route 29, the ceremony is expect to happen at 11:30 this morning which means the roads in this area won't be clogged with ice today but clogged with more people driving into see this. so that is a bad situation that could be much worse thomas and karen once the road s start to fill up with cars this morning. >> several obstacles to deal w lauren, thank you. lets go to southwest philadelphia a developing story, police are investigating a deadly shooting at seventh first and woodland avenue when officers arrived to the scene shortly after 2:30 they found a man lying face down in the street, surrounded by several shell casings, police are conducting interviews with possible witnesses, they are also hoping that surveillance video will help them figure out what happened here and perhaps catch the person, responsible. well, in camden county christopher columbus statue
has been target of the vandals and it is prompting city leaders to slower taking it down all together. paint splattered on the steps of the christopher columbus in burnham park in the park side neighborhood. a statement, and some language on the monument. it was painted on. damage was first noticed by a pastor who says it under scores the need to move the figure someplace else. >> for us, as african-americans, native americans, what christopher columbus did to those people in murdering them, raping woman and all of that it is just, this is even worse, this statue being here is worse then confederate statute being erected in the south. >> so, some statues were reportedly also vandalized of christopher columbus in other parts of the new jersey in recent days, including several areas in north jersey, as well all right. there we go, guys, we're so
excited. this town will be jumping this weekend like that guy, that is the mood, a couple hours ticket will get on sale for big championship game. lets get out to the linc and steve keeley, this morning, hey, steve. >> reporter: czar i karen i didn't hear what you said but we are outside the stadium which is, a whole different look, on sunday when it is packed with people and all lit up for nation, gordon ge ico the michael douglas character in the movie wall street 30 years ago that greed is good. what he said in that movie applies today because yes, at the start of the season we all would have been delighted just to get an nfc championship game here at home but greed, both color of cash and the color of the eagles will have you greedy for more and in fact, two more wins and on the subject of green, cash and greed getting a ticket on ticket master this morning at 10:00 o'clock may be close to
winning the power ball lottery the ticket master site may crash with so many football fans logging on to get limited number of tickets for the eagles last home game here in their best season since 2004. but if you get on stub hub, to get a ticket when you lose out at ticket master 357 now on stub hup are hubbies the cheapest price just to get in the stadium for standing room only, thomas and karen, that is about three times what the face value is for standing room only 135 if you are lucky to get tickets on ticket master. so pretty popular ticket, in surprise, right? >> no surprise at all, it is hottest ticket that has been around in a long time, thanks very much. we appreciate it. lucky enough you can watch it right here on fox 29 for. >> free. >> well, i think, i actually like it on tv on my own couch so we will see. we will have fun, in matter what with our dog head.
it's always disappointing, when something gets watered down. at air wick, we believe scent should be experienced the way its intended: pure. discover air wick pure freshmatic, with no added water. and now, try pure free if your idea of seizing the day starts before the day even begins... then you need lean protein. and it comes in a jimmy dean delights breakfast sandwich. stacked with 17 grams of protein. lean into a great day. shine on.
likely filled with bacteria and fungus. how gross is that. >> according to an international study scientists found common strains of bacteria and fungus which are normally harmless but can cause infection, to people who have been compromised with immune system problems. team could not determine how bacteria got in the appliance but a good guess, the food. they urge people to keep dishwasher door closed until it is completely cools down because heat can car that i bacteria right into your nasal passage. all right. in money news from delaware there is a new brew, for people who are prepared, for the war. it is dog fish head brewery unveiling new beer crafted just for survivallist. it is pack with all of you're sentence vitamins, and amino acid. company is set to release to hundred packs of the beer which includes swiss army knife, solar blanket and rope. survival packages will go on sale january 27th.

you have to look at this one caught on camera out in san francisco not something you see every day during a news program. >> i don't think i have ever seen it. weather person like the equivalent of sue serio out there gets a unexpect visitor during the forecast, lets take a look. >> still stubborn overcast here in the city. look at this... >> he is totally checking out the camera, mark. >> yeah. >> look at how weatherman backed away like wow. >> so you saw meteorologist there showing off the weather maps and then suddenly a bird appeared, photo bombing the segment, so curious bird poked his head around the lens before finally giving up and flying away. we were looking out, bird trying to look in. >> lets get a check of our road 4:46. hi there, bob. >> good morning. >> it was pretty cool, a lot of the cameras are inside like little, casings and they are popular forbidders nest and that is probably what happened
out there. good shot of the golden gate bridge. wasn't that neat? 4:46. it is a tuesday, back to work, back to school, live look at 42 freeway, police activity near creek road, it will be one of those crazy morning rush hours, again, everybody back to work, everybody back to school, someone going too fast here along route 100 right before the pennsylvania turnpike but we had a little snow squall rolling through downingtown, and, out in lancaster so be careful. penndot putting down that salt brine solution overnight and throughout the day as we get ready some snow preps, keeping in mine using septa's regional rail line they kick in a new timetable over weekend and make sure you have right schedule as we head out front door to ride the train this morning. here's a live look at the ice jam detours up here in trenton route 29, the memorial drive ramps and calhoun street ramps all closed because of flooding and as lauren mention that had will impact folks heading up
to the inauguration later today on the capitol. on the pennsylvania side of the river in morrisville river roadblock between black rock and calhoun street bridge with some flooding. snow time line, sueby has got tonight 15 seconds so, if you live far north and west of the city and we talk bit all the time in the winter, north and western suburbs this is where we could see snow during the day-to-day we cannot rule out a flurry or a shower, anywhere else during the day today but that is where we have the advicery and flood warning, continues, for part of the delaware, river, around trenton, morrisville, yardley all of those places with the ice jams, more about that of course all morning with lauren johnson. here's our clipper system stretching all the way from
