every day but thank goodness they'll pair the southbound what they're doing through tomorrow. anyone who typically comes south on the lincoln drive, pushed off at wissahickon avenue, take it over to the roosevelt boulevard, and that will get you south back to either the kelly drive offer the schuylkill expressway. that's going to put a lot of extra volume on wissahickon on the neighborhoods over the next couple of days, kind of quiet, all by myself out here on 95, headed southbound, between cottman avenue and girard, and with the travel mess, i should say, with the weather, sue just mentioned, comes the travel mess. do check with your airlines starting this afternoon and all day tomorrow. karen, thomas, back over to you. >> bob, we will have messy couple of days, march is roaring in like a lion. we've got powerful nor'easter coming our way. let's go down, take live picture down the shore, wildwood, new jersey, looks calm but certainly the cam before the storm. many towns putting in different project to protect their beaches. down to ocean city where steve
keeley is with some of the things we may be expecting. steve? >> well, we didn't do the cliche shot and go on the boardwalk, we gave you a new look, this is the route 52 causeway, it will forever be known for locals as the ninth street bridge, and ocean city pier for local fishermen. we can be here unlike during the storms where we really can't be here, because it is like being out on a both in the middle of the back bay, this is wide spot of the bay, and there is ocean city which doesn't have much after skyline. but because it is so clear right now, underneath the route 52 bridge, you can see, the atlantic city skyline, half hour drive away, shows you how clear it is right now, we won't be able to show you this from this point tomorrow. and guess what? we come here, and we see todd one of the local fishermen, working today, but up early fishing for stripe bass. he just put his rod in the front every his jeep here. because what you did i hadn't it was a good spot? what's the deal?

fresh seafood. you see the see shells here, how do shells get here? far from the beach for those every how didn't watch this as a kid what i notice as a kid, the seagulls will get a clam, fly up high enough, drop it on the nearest concrete, wait for it to open and then fight the other seagulls off who are lazy waiting for the seagulls to do all of the work and eat the clam. that's how they open the clam. that's why we have shells all over this fishing pier here. great new walkway, great new place to visit, 2.7 miles one direction, so if you park on one side it is a good 5-mile run, and there is the rest of the bridge, all lit up, that's the old bridge what we call the ninth street bridge, used to epp up and always get stuck, usually on the memorial day traffic specially in the heat. now they don't have to worry about that any more because it is super hi, super cool. great location if you never visited. plenty of parking as you can see, visitor center straight ahead. so different location for us here in ocean city as we begin

later arrival time for this rain, than we told you yesterday. probably 4:00, 5:00. then starts to rain heavy on and off throughout the night into tomorrow morning. here we are, at 4:00 when we start good day philadelphia, again, for you tomorrow. looks like it is still just rain. then what happens is with the circulation around this low pressure system it, draws in some colder air. so you see, a change-over to snow in the north and east, up toward the mountains, about 8:00 in the morning. still, raining throughout the day on friday. with this coastal storm, but look what happens. potentially friday night. cold air could come further south. while there is still some precipitation around, could yet quick shot of snow before all is said and done, little bit of what's going to happen tomorrow. 58 degrees as the rain arrives later in the day, rain and wind, and maybe some snow by the end of the day, on friday. it looks like it will eventually clear up. but we keep the wind around on saturday. mostly sunny, high close to 50 on sunday. seasonable temperatures stay with us, through the middle of

down here in roxborough. and expect travel delays, down at the airport, later on this afternoon, all the day tomorrow, probably lingering into the weekend, and with this storm that's headed our way. best bet, check with the airline, mass transit looking good. thomas, karen, back over to you. >> bob, thank you. let's get right back to the breaking news, we had fire started about an hour ago. our jenny joyce is there at the scene. let's get the latest information just coming in right now. >> jenny? >> good morning, karen, so we only pulled up here about five minutes ago, liver on the 600 block of hickory street, as you can see, flames just shooting out of the roof of the home. also in the lower level, uncle see, breitbart orange peaking through that front window. we heard a short time ago, that the firefighters were retreating. they were all getting out of the house. you can see that host operation from above. just shooting water, down onto these flames. that aren't stopping. so it has been going on for about an hour, and when we got here, i was able to talk to a man who said this is actually
his sister's home. it is the home that he and his sister grew up in. and his mom was living there until she passed away about 18 months ago, they were getting ready to sell the house. his sister was living there with her boyfriends, and i believe boyfriends' son. she was taken to the hospital. just for precautionary reasons, just because obviously this is an overwhelming situation. it is a twin home. and it appears that the twin, the other side, is also damaged. the man that i spoke with said he hasn't seen the owner of that home. it was unclear whether or not she was even here overnight when this fire started. so again, a live look, just all of that smoke billowing from the rooftop of this home for the moment. it seems like the flames have decreased and hopefully that's a good sign. hopefully making some headway on the flames again over an hour, this has been going for now. back to you guys. >> all right, jenny, thank
you. keep us updated. 4:20. surprise announcement for the white house communications direct or. says she's out, one every president trump's longest serving aids, the fourth person to occupy that position since the president was sworn in. hicks resignation comes a day after she was interviewed for nine hours by the house panel investigating russia interferance in the election, the president has issued a statement saying he'll miss having hicks by his side. president trump makes surprising comments about gun reform and leaves many of his political opponent agreeing with him. in a tell advised meeting with senators, president trump seemed to veer away from his nra supporting record saying he supported more backgrounds checks, raising the age to buy assault rifle from 18 to 21. even at one point saying sometimes the police need to take people's guns, even before worrying about due process. he chastised some of the lawmakers saying they were afraid of the nra. in fact, in one exchange, president trump took a shot at pennsylvania senator and gun bill sponsor, pat toomey.
>> we didn't address it mr. president. >> you know why, because you are afraid of the nra. they have great power over you people. less power over me. >> pat toomey said after the meeting he didn't think trumps comments were aimed at him personally, jennifer baker says while the meeting made for great tv the idea discussed would make for bad policy. >> so many right now are coming taught pay their respects cents to the late reverend billy graham lying in honor at the national rotunda making him only the fourth private citizen to ever do so. so many thousands of people from all across this country coming to view his plane pine casket. they have it right there. take a look at the platform it was sitting on right there, that's the same platform that once held the casket of former president abraham lincoln. >> all right, it is 4:22. a lot of people, we know we enjoy our football out there, when you are watching football, like to have abreuski maybe nice slides of pizza big change has got the slice from the nfl.

that man told me that his sister was living here in this house, she, another adult, and a child, were able to make it out of that home safely. she was taken to the hospital. pretty much as a precaution, just because this is a scary situation. causing a lot of anxiety and of course a lot of emotions. so she was just taken for watch. but apparently they were trying to sell this home in the next month or so. have no idea how this fire started. and obviously, that's going to be a long investigation to come. and again, fire crews out here still working. there you go. you can see some flames peaking through the upper floor window right now. still could be a while before this fire is placed under control. karen, thomas? >> another busy morning, jenny, thank you. we'll get another update in just a moment. another developing story, we're tracking out of frankford this morning, where a man is in extremely critical condition after being shot in the head. police say just before 10:00 last night, someone walk up to the victim, at the 1500
block of row hand street and shot him in the head. there are surveillance cameras in the area, working with local business toss view those images. also, keeping a very close watch on what could develop into a dangerous storm. some people across our area, they're being urged to prepare an emergency plan, talking about power outages, and flooding, as well. let's get to steve keeley who is joining us from sea isle city this morning, steve, good morning. >> twenty-four hour before the worse of it, it is just a beautiful morning here. and the big concern, always, not on the ocean front, as much as the back bays. and the record tide for tomorrow, 9 feet, and the predictions are, 8.8 feet tomorrow. and if you do the math, that makes it just couple of inches shy of the record, and a record high tide is bad news for the people who don't like their property flooded. so smart people will get their cars out of the way specially if they live on the back bays.
look the reflection of the beachfront condo. now it is clear on the ground, clear along the beaches. but look at the moon kind of fuzzy and hazy. but when you have a full type moon, that also means tides are higher than normal. so enjoy this day, and enjoy this weather while you have it. and i'm telling you, we won't be able to stand here tomorrow, this pier i'm on, some of these piers float, this will likely be covered by water tomorrow. see even sea isle fire and police boat raised out of the water for the season, gave you a look at some of the signs here, where we are, this is a popular fishing spot, a popular crabbing spot. they've got the sing here, jared forgot to brush his teeth today so he just brushed his teeth where would you normally clean fish in the sing t made it convenient for him. also the signs here, they ' shark-friendly. and you will point out this, jared, we are at hooker sport fishing here in sea isle,
which is legitimate hooker sport fishing, unlike the hooker's support fishing enough kensington in philadelphia, guys. >> fish face. all right, steve, a lot to digest. glad they're shark friendly there, thank you, 4:37. >> ten days since devastating fire old city, a restaurant just doors away, now back in business. pizzeria just steps away from where the four alarm fire broke out on february 18th, has reopened. owner stephanie posted on social media, quote, we have risen from the ashes, cleaned up the smoke and health department gave us a go. other nearby businesses, like gina's, 45, and the little lion, do remain closed. >> come-on, you got this. ten, 11, breathe. >> in ocean county right there, those are life saving moment, from a new jersey state trooper's dash cam, sergeant karen fahey and trooper christopher herman driving by, there they are, when all the sudden they saw a car had crashed on the garden state parkway in south toms
