4:16 am
summer, i guess five minute of summer now, here's what is happening. there is the earth. there is the equator, the sun at about 4:21 is going to be directly over the equator. and we will have our autumnal equinox. then what happens is the sun starts to go, the strongest race of the sun go to the south of us. we get short days and longer nights as we head into wintertime. so, that's what is happening moments from now. so we've been talking about this all week, our concern about this low pressure system, that will just be kind of lingering off the coast, pesky, annoying, wasn't for this, high pressure would be in control, all weekend long, we would have perfect forecast. but we have to watch this storm. it is predicted to go little further north. looks like it will definitely spread clouds into the area. with the high to our north, we will be inbetween the low and the high. we will probably get some decent winds over the
4:17 am
weekends, but, we will probably not see any showers on saturday, looks like there is a chance of a shower on sunday. so, plan on temperatures for the papal weekend, and all of the events that we have on the parkway here at independence mall, plan on temperatures that will be in the mid seven's, and a lot of cloud cover. on sunday, might want to make sure you have your rain poncho with you just in case. here's what's happening. we have the showers lingering off the carolina coast. we no longer have any rain to show you for today. we had some yesterday out to the west, we look at the future cast, things look fine through today, through tomorrow, we have just a mix of sun and clouds, so couple of real decent looking days with more sunshine than we saw yesterday. by friday, though, here come the clouds from the coastal storm. will we see the rain from that coastal storm? that's the question. and again, the models aren't in complete agreement about this, but looks like there is a chance on saturday, maybe a greater chance on sunday, some showers around. but you will have to hold on to your hat over the weekend, as well. 44 degrees in mount pocono.

4:42 am
4:43 am
just happened. change of season, in case you just woke up, and you missed it, were you moments away from experiencing the autumn equinox. it happened at 4:21 this morning. fall began. we'll have to put that in past
4:44 am
tens now. what's that mean? it means the sun is directly over the equator, as we have explained it here, and so that is the equinox, which means, equal knocks. so what it really means is equal day, equal night. it is pretty close to the same amount of time for day and night. but, then, as the sun angle goes a little further south, below the equator, that is when we get longer nights, and shorter days. most of us don't like that very much. but what can we do? that's what happened. so, now we look ahead to the weekend. the pope came to america yesterday, he will be here in philadelphia, on saturday, and sunday, and this pesky low pressure system is messing up our ability to really accurately forecast this weather at this point, for sunday, so watching this coastal storm, and we will keep an eye on it, as it moves a little further north over the weekends, gives us a possibility of a slight chance of showers on saturday, and maybe a greater chance of showers on sunday, also, the
4:45 am
winds will be picking up, as well. so we don't need to show you now on ultimate doppler. looking ahead the rest of the day today, the rest of the day tomorrow, we see whole lot of sunshine. but boy friday afternoon, the clouds start bubble in from south to north. we have the possibility of a shower here and there, to the south of us, now, that is significant because the other big thing that's going on this weekend is at the shore, it is irish weekend in wildwood. and for folks that are headed down there, you better have your rain gear, or if you are ooh he ' just going to stay inside and have some fun at the drinking establishments, then you'll be okay. put that delicately. 44 degrees in mount pocono, 50 allentown and pottstown, 63 here in the city, it is 52 out in lancaster. we will be watching for some fog this morning, we don't really see any yet. winds are just enough to prevent the formation of fog in the city. we'll watch north and west of the city to see if any fog decides to form. that could be an issue for us
4:46 am
today, after all of those 80s last week, we had the cooling trends, that started on sunday, when we got to 80 degrees. we in the 70s monday, tuesday, looks like we will be back up to 80 or at least close to it today. should be pleasant day, decent amount of sunshine, tomorrow looks pretty good, as well. then the clothes roll in friday afternoon. we go back to the 70s, that's where the temperatures will stay for the weaken. so, again, we are going with mostly cloudy skies, both saturday, sunday, but be aware of the possibility of a shower or two, especially, if you're planning to attend the papal mass on the parkway on sunday. there could be a few showers there. so, we'll just keep an eye on the situation, bob kelly, and get better handle on it every single day. >> and make sure you have a fash on recall papal poncho, 4:46. good morning, live look, i95 in delaware county. no problems at all right near route 420. actually big question, folks had yesterday, got couple of times, is 95 going to be open
4:47 am
through the weekend? yes, 95 is going to be your major roadway that will be open through philadelphia all weekend long. the only closures of 95 will be the ramps to and from center city, broad street, and washington avenue. but 95 north and south is going to be your way to go if you're traveling through the weekend here with the pope in town. no problems here on the roosevelt boulevard, as you come down out of the neighborhood. good morning to bellmawr. live look here on the 42 freeway, looking good as you work your way in toward 295, some construction still out there, that bellmawr interchange, but, actually, now here in the neighborhood, germantown and washington lane. 295, no problems leaving north jersey, traveling down through moorestown, cherry hill, again, you have that new traffic pattern, as you approach the 42 freeway, just keep in mind, too, with the ben franklin bridge closed over the weekends a loft extra
4:48 am
volume pushed to the walt whitman bridge. and there is a new traffic pattern, there, along 295, and the freeway, the only closure this morning is the same deal as yesterday. the ben franklin parkway, closed to vehicle traffic, from the steps of the art museum, all the way up through the cathedral, and logan square. so, martin luther king drive, you are push on to the vine street expressway. kelly drive, you're going to be pushed off into the neighborhood, at fairmount avenue. unless you want to go into the neighborhood, i would just use the schuylkill expressway today. and avoid that whole detour. because in center city today, and through the remainder of the weekend, the no parking zones are if place here, along all of the city street. if you are coming into the city, give yourselves some extra time, play it safe, chris, and just park in one of the parking garages here downtown. chris, back over to you. >> bob, isn't it weird right now to drive around center city? there are no cars on the side of the streets. >> it is like a ghosttown here this morning, yes. >> specially at this hour. bob, thank you. hey, atm crimes are at their

4:50 am
that's the highest rates in two decades. so what do we do? security expert fred says eyes up. >> always look around, make sure there is nobody around you, nobody following you, nobody suspicious in a car that has interest in this particular machine. i'm not talking about a half hour surveillance, i'm talking a quick 30 second glance. >> pick safer machine. he recommends 24-hour convenience stores with constant traffic. anything behind a few doors, that helps, too. lots of light, and eyeballs, bad for criminals. corners aren't great, neither are those strip malls. and this guy behind a bush, serious lip, just go someplace else. next, give it a good once-over. the first thing to do, make sure there is no type of little pin hole camera watching me. because they're going to be face down looking, when you hit your code, they'll be looking at your code that you punch in. >> now, place with the machine. go ahead, get a little physical. >> i'll yank, when you put your card, in i'll just yank on this black plastic or the
4:51 am
metal f it is loose or jiggles at all, walk away from the machine. the other thing touch the keyboard. before you do anything, touch the keyboard. if the keyboard's loose, that's something detached that shouldn't be there. >> if it checks out, use it, but get close to cover the key pad. so no one can see you or photograph you punching in your code. seems like a lot, but you can do it all in just about a minute, then mover away quickly, expert say don't check your receipt, don't count your 20's, and don't fumble for your keys. if there is a problem, call later. they're not going to argue with the machine anyway. right now, companies are race to go try to create some new cards that had the computer chips in them to make a lot more difficult for thieves to copy them and create new cards in order to drain your account. but the atm operators, they're if the going to be responsible for fraudulent charges for more than a year from now. so, until then, and always be vigilant to protect yourself and your money. i'm karen hepp "fox 29 news". that's good advice, all right, coming up on 4:52, two
