october inside the 7-eleven on new town road, but you can see how fast he acts. it's not the first time this masked thief struck and it seems like it nts would it won't be t. >> we're not talking tons of money. >> reporter: the thief only gets a couple bucks because cash drawers are light thanks to the increased use of credit cards. but at every stop the crook grabs cigarettes and a lot of them. >> whether smoking them or selling them. >> reporter: and the masked man with a big gun is thought to be the same guy who hit the 7-elev 7-eleven, same clothes, same mask, and same gun. what police don't know is how far the guy runs away, is there is a waiting car and is this case connected to others. there have been reports of masked robberies similar to this one in upper dublin and also upper more land and towns in bucks county. at one spot, there was a witness. >> he waited across the street and when we showed up, he told the police this is what i saw,
helped us out greatly, gave us more of an area to look or specific area to look. >> reporter: but he escaped again and now police want to know if anyone is helping him get away and pull off these crimes. and that is where you can come in here. if you see a guy running from a convenience store or gas station wearing one of those masks, police say don't approach, stay a safe distance and pay attention, see if he gets into a car or or where he takes off running to. and police when arrive to a scene like that, again, wait for police to approach you and then tell them everything you know. reporting live in warminster, deanna durante. turning now to our first alert weather and the hoods were up in pleasantville this morning. a soggy start to the day. those gray skies stretched down to the shore. here is a live look at what is happening in cape may. not a day you want to be on the beach.

wind starts to come in out of the south, we may see more significant showers around. but they are just scattered. this is not a widespread thing. so don't go canceling saturday activities. but there is a chance of at least a couple showers around. then on sunday, we get more sunshine and the temperature really scoots up. a lot more than this. 68 in fairmont, 65 in redding. you can see the clouds all over the place. a few sprinkles especially toward the shore. and as we go into the weekend, things will change quite a bit going back up into the 70s with just a little bit of sunshine on saturday. remember the chance of showers. and then on sunday, we're expecting to be dry. more sunshine then, pushing temperatures into the 80s. remember the average high is in the upper 60s now. then after that, things change. but lehigh valley, 78 on sunday.
and then watch what happens after sunday. there is a big drop. 82 to 67. and then down to 63. so the colder air comes back fairly quickly after sunday. but then it starts warming up again. and as we head to next weekend, i think it will warm up again. and we could be near 80 degrees. >> wow. >> and overall this weather pattern just keeps coming back. warm weather just keeps coming. >> we're still a couple weeks away, about you hopefully it will be good fwoet trick weathe or treating. >> yeah, one of thoefsof those days would be nice. today a dream became a reality. coming up, i'll tell you how you might be able to help that dream come true with some other families. also men for puerto rico, how dozens of local volunteers pitched in today to help
