well as just the temperature in general, i think what you will really notice here today. of course we had very soggy day yesterday. there may still be residual shower here and there any time really for the rest of the daylight hours. but, it is really going to be the lesser of the threats here today, i wouldn't call them threats, deal i with the aftermath of the system making full departure, where the winds is kicking in, where the chill is settling in shall where the clouds are coming. from so even though we started offer pretty clear skies this morning, clouds have gun to move, in the park definately worse than the bite when it comes to the radar. looks like heavy swat of snow up across north central pa maybe flurry in the poconos, but in the city it is nothing more than stray rain shower. mid 40's, right now, we expect at best though to rebounds only into the low 50's, and notice that wind flow right now at the shore is many doing out of the southwest, does turn more west to northwesterly as the day goes on. but regardless of its direction, it does feel chilly right now. low to mid 50's we mentioned at best for the rest of the
day, but by the weekend, meisha, it is only getting better from here. >> i like the sounds of that. thank you so much, katie. good morning, everyone. a happy friday to you. so what's going on right now? we have live chopper three over building fire in new jersey, gloucester county. so happy, yesterday, reignited again today. berkley road is closed, near 295, and 295 north and south at paulsboro, those on and off-ramps, they were closed, have now since been cleared. so just a heads up for those every in you this neck of the woods, will slow you down just little bit, being that berkley road still closed near 295 again, but overall looks like they do have it under control now. and things hopefully will be moving on out of the way. then we have accident here, route one southbound, the off ramp to westbound street road, bucks county, heads up. for those every in you that neck of the woods, just a heads up though, because you can see actually the congestion levels around that aren't looking too bad. we will have more to talk about coming up until the next ten minutes or so. jim, over to you. >> thank you, updating breaking news this morning, russia's military claims the us strike on the syrian air

violation of international law that goes back to the first worlds war because after that war we banned chemical weapons, and assad shows himself to be a serial user of them. >> ed moments ago russian military says it will help syria strengthen it air defenses after this us strike of of course you know there are many interests in syria right now, have been for years. what's your reaction to this? what's the impact? what's next? >> well the russians have to make a statement like that because they're embarrased this morning. they have invest add lot into this operation in syria. syria's the only place where the russians have military installation outside of their own country. so they've got prestige on the line. they've invested a lot of money. and have put their foot, not just a tow, pretty much the whole leg, is now in this mess. and for the us to come along
and to hit back at assad in this way, emboldens everybody who is trying to bring down that regime. the russians want to preserve him. so of course they're going to make statements like this, but it is a lot of brave talk from somebody who just got hit in the nose pretty hard. and it was just a jab. wait until they see our big punch if we decide to use it. >> all right, turbulent times, ed, intelligence analyst joining us this morning to provide some perspective on this. thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thanks, rahel. >> well stay with "eyewitness news" for continuing coverage of the us military attack in syria, and as always, you can get the latest information on line at our website cbsphilly.com. back here at home, two men robbed overnight at gunpoint, shortly after taking out some cash at atm. >> like giving the money, police say one victim was shot.
