6:02 am
you might run into some delays. looks like a truck was involved. off and to the center median there, police activity on the scene as well. a few more cars involved. we're seeing some slow doungz especially as we start to get into the beginnings of rush hour. also watching ham i am ton township in new jersey. turnpike around 195, exit 7 a, outer lanes only closed, inner lanes open. you are allowed to get by the scene now. in the township, into new jersey, a signal closing a portion of 322. heading eastbound. coming away from the bridge kings highway, that portion of the road is closed and watch for police activity there. back to you. >> jessica, thank you. to a developing story now, two schools are closed today and thousands of people are still without power because of this fire at a pico substation. yesterday's flames here in philadelphia, nice town tioga neighborhood having a widespread impact this earn monthing. nbc's matt dlush a for us in

6:04 am
roughly 36,000 customers did not have power. crews have been working throughout the afternoon and into the night. we did ask pico when will the power come back on for everyone. >> it is a little difficult at this point to let a customer know what time they'll be on. but based on the configuration of our system we'll continue to switch in the streets. we'll be working with back up generators whenever possible to get as many as possible back on. we expect that will happen in relatively short order. >> right. so, here we are back at the intersection of honey park and clear field. you see the gas station, they have been without power a little while. the gentleman working here has candles on -- candles lit in his office. traffic lights are still out there. they have the stop signs up. the police car here, you see the homes over here as well, row homes still do not have power. just over here down the way, you see this street has power. mcdonald's, which did not seem to have power about two or three hours ago did not have power. they have since been restored.

6:06 am
the trump administration could announce as early as this week plans to roll back federal fuel economy requirements. and early january, you may remember the obama administration locked in a requirement that all new cars should average 54 miles per gallon by 2025. auto makers then asked the epa to throw out that requirement saying it would cost them $200 billion to comply with the rule. >> 6:06, 52 degrees right now. the man accuse of making threats against jewish community centers and synagogues is expected in court. juan thompson fired last year for allegedly making up quotes and sources. he was a est ared in st. louis last week. federal agents say thompson called or e-mailed jewish institutions across america, a fresh wave of threats were made against jewish centers yesterday. and now we have a follow-up on vandalism at a jewish cemetery in philadelphia. the reward has been increased to $74,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

6:09 am
again, notice the arch in our little wind lines here. that's where the front is starting to pass. it is moving quickly through new jersey this morning. that is going to dip our temperatures a bit before they boost right back up. delaware we're 48, that is going to be in the 50s by 10:00 a.m. and the low 60s this afternoon. notice the wind, though, they stayed strong coming in from the west which will pump in that warmer air. 52 degrees in philadelphia right now. we will stay about the same through 10:00 a.m. we grew much warmer a couple hours ago. because of the cold front passage, we're seeing the drop. the pickup, though, into the low mid 60s by afternoon, 2:00 p.m., 61, 4:00 p.m. the same. and those winds a at around 15 to 20 miles per hour. gusts above 30 miles per hour this afternoon. along the shore, 56 degrees right now. and we are going to see those clouds thin out as we get into your afternoon. 54 at noon, mid upper 50s for high temperatures later today. and same deal windy condilgss in our forecast with more sunshine by the afternoon. then in the days to come, the
6:10 am

6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
just about quarter past 6:00 on this wednesday. today women's voices will be heard in a noticeably different way than we saw in january's marches here in philadelphia 76ers and acro-- across the cou.
6:15 am
>> women's marchers are calling for a day without women asking ladies to take the day off to show their economic strength. nbc 10's pam osbourne is live for us with more on the protests. what kind of impact we could see today? pamela, give us some context. >> reporter: yeah, i mean it could be when you get to the office this morning you could see a few less places if you work in a chain type store. it could mean you see a few less customers as well. but the strike goes even further than that. women all across the world are planning to make a stand today on international women's day. it started january 21st when more than 5 million women participated worldwide and the women's march on washington and similar sister marches. now activists are calling on women to make a one-day demonstration of economic solidarity by taking the day off. they are encouraging women to spend money only at small businesses and businesses owned by women and minorities. women's march organizers say they are representing several
6:16 am
issues such as income inequalities, working for living wages, reproductive rights as well as lgbtq rights. in addition to making an economic statement -- >> we would also like this to be a show of solidarity. so, if you can't afford to strike, we are encouraging people to wear red. we are also encouraging people to call their legislators. voice their concerns over laws and policies and are at issue right now. >> reporter: striking women hope their absence will show a significance in the key role they play in society and there are quite a few events happening throughout the city today. we're going to be following those events for you here in philly. rosemary? >> all right, pamela osbourne live for us in center city, thanks for that, pam. >> this story of course is getting mixed reaction on the nbc 10 facebook page. raja writes, for instance, i'm participating. lynn says this will be at her place of employment, i'm thankful to be work being. we want to know what you think
6:17 am
if you'll be participating let us know on the nbc 10 facebook page. >> now let's get a quick check of our traffic with jessica boying ton. >> a quick check of the i-95 in naamans road, jess. >> south of i-95, moving towards the delaware state line. this accident is in the left-hand lane, part of the left hand shoulder there as well. traffic is pretty much merging down together to two lanes. right at the work time as well. the beginning of the morning rush we are starting to see slow downs southbound towards the delaware area. so, watching that. there is a crash around rit enhouse road and north philly, that fire that happened yesterday for pico under control, but fox street is still closed because of that between roberts avenue just around allegheny avenue. in south philadelphia, the northbound "up to the minute" ramp to the walt whit man ramp to 95 is blocked with an investigation. if you have to cross over, ben franklin bridge could be a good
6:18 am
alternate. new jersey, a crash headed northbound just around exit 7 a, right near 195. outer lanes are closed, inner lane still open. we'll check in with the delaware state line when i come back. >> we'll see you shortly. thanks, jess. krystal is tracking the showers moving through the area. should be out of here pretty soon, chris talg. >> that's right, rosemary. it will come to a close. you can still see the receipt roadways out there. if you're getting an early start to your morning, the commute, wet roadways, a few sprinkles. there is not a lot left of the rain. the green, the showers that are moving through, the line is starting to move offshore as expected. still a little light rain passing through philadelphia. wilmington very scattered left over in nature through berks county and chester county as well. the end line was passing through harris burg. it is out of harris burg. a good indicator as this moves
6:19 am
through, by 9:00 a.m. almost all of this should be out. there is a closer looing at where some of the lingering steady rain is, but even in kate may it has lost its strength. not a lot left to this. future wind gusts will be a problem. 30 miles per hour now. right as the cold front was passing 50 miles per hour. for the most part gusts will weaken a tad early afternoon, and pickup 3:00 p.m. gusts 35 to 45 miles per hour. could see spot areas up to 40 miles per hour. those will drop off a bit overnight, but really still breezy, even through to your thursday morning. and again thursday afternoon windy again. so, we've got these windy conditions consistent over our three day outlook. 64 the temperature today. 60 on thursday, and then, bam, big drop for your friday. colder air moves in, 39 degrees, that's the high. a rain/snow mix is possible in our forecast. for the suburbs we go from 61 on
6:20 am
wednesday 57 down to 37 on friday. only 35 and snow likely for the lehigh valley. in new jersey, 63 wednesday, 60 thursday and 39 friday. i know this rain snow mix may look a little frightening. this is not heavy snow, it's a light snow at best and it's mixed with rain. same for shore and delaware. we go from 60s today to low 40s by your friday. here is the hour by hour and this is for your friday outlook. remember the rain is almost out this morning. then we clear out today. but thursday night we go from most mostly clear to clouds moving in. there is the rain 4:00 a.m., and snow mixing across the board. i think this model is being a little conservative actually. we may see more rain snow passing through and even scattered snow showers into our afternoon hours as well on your friday. so, tracking that trend for friday and then actually again next tuesday we'll have the potential for a rain snow mix. the temperatures do stay cold over the weekend in the 30s and don't forget to spring forward those clocks. your weekend saturday into sunday. >> you just reminded me.

6:31 am
our area. you can tell the difference in the cold air pulled in. 45 redding, 52 for philly and low 50s as well out to the shore like atlantic city and millville 51 degrees. later today the winds are strong now and they'll be strong the rest of the day. 35 mile per hour gusts at mill ville. 44 in atlantic city. that's where the front is passing now. like i mentioned the winds will continue coming in from the west. they will continue windy today. we'll track out your gusts for your mid workweek coming up in a minute. right now we'll go to traffic with jessica. >> and krystal, on 95, good niez -- news on naamans road. it cleared five minutes ago or so. we're good on delaware state line. the drive time, we also have another accident reported on the northbound side just around 295 in delaware. right here on the north, doing okay for the most part between 295 and 495. in both directions still, south
6:32 am

6:33 am
is going to be okay. they're going to keep him here another couple of hours to make sure. here is what happened. that little boy's mother, a 21-year-old woman who lives in the nice town section of philadelphia, tells investigators around 12:30 this morning, she was sleeping in her bedroom, sleeping with her newborn son on her chest which is what so many new moms do. she says that she woke up to find a gun at her head, three men were in her bedroom all with handguns saying they would shoot her unless she gave them money. police say the men were angry and cursing at her. here is what the mom said next >> she said, i'm holding my baby and that's when one of them just forced the baby onto the floor by pushing the baby onto the floor, which is pretty brutal as far as we're concerned. >> reporter: and to continue with that brutal nature, police say the men ignored the newborn on the floor, forced the mom downstairs while, again, her baby just lay on that floor helpless. there were two teenage girls in
6:34 am
the home at the time as well. friends of that new mother. they were also threatened with their live. police say the house was turned upside down as the men searched for money and valuables. police say they left with over $3,000 and a couple of cell phones. their surveillance video from the neighborhood that police have obtained, they have seen it and they say it shows three to four men leaving that house, but unfortunately the men were wearing masks, completely covered with dark clothing. so, they aren't able to get a description from that surveillance video. when the men were inside the home, they wore gloves so there are no fingerprints that police can pull from that home. again, just to recap, that eight-day-old boy here at einstein hospital being observed by doctors, but they believe he is going to be okay. reporting live in logan this morning katie zachary nbc 10 news. >> thank you, katie. police continue to search for a serial kidnapper wanted in dell. there have been three attacks in three apartment complexes.

6:40 am
there is the rain that has been passing on by. we got scattered showers. the main line has moved off the shore. we have spotty areas of rain. you see in chester county. this is not heavy rain. this is going to be a brief shower that passes through westchester to norris town. looking to philadelphia, very light rain to ben salem. you see the same deals we start to track in south jersey as well. along the shore that was the line of rain. it has weakened considerably as well. we have a chance of rain and snow in the forecast as we go into the next several days. we'll look closer at that coming up a. he all right, thank you, krystal. 20 minutes before 7:00 a.m. we had a problem all morning at naamans road further north on street road. we have a problem. >> jessica boying ton is watching for us. jess? >> we have a string of accidents all morning long from the delaware state line even into delaware 95 up through right around street road. this is the southbound side. a lot of vehicles that are involved here, a lot of rescue crews, emergency crews here as
