5:15 am
just a little brief snow shower don't be surprised if you see that during the day-to-day. as far as precipitation for rest of the weekend really slight chance around midnight, in southern delaware, from a southern storm system but for the rest of us i think we're okay through weekend, it is monday morning we will see rain coming back in our area, welcoming us back to reality after a long holiday and when kid go back to school on monday. won't that be fun. mid 30's for mess of our temperatures but it is chillier in allentown, pottstown down to the lower 30 's and 27 degrees in mount pocono. but the wind chills that is what you trust for they are in the 20's. that is this morning. wind speed sustained at 9 miles an hour, 12 miles an hour but we expect wind to gust in the 20 to 30 miles an hour range by later this morning, but notice a different outside after sunrise but we expect wind to pick up to 25, 35 miles an hour wind gusts, throughout the day. that makes for a blustery day,
5:16 am

5:36 am
stun their came out, there police, yesterday. that her grandson was involved , with marie's accused killer. we're at st. mary magtellan church and you can bet this place will be filled every pew , every seat and even small street out front here they have no stopping signs because they will clear these cars because they know how busy, this street will be later today, she was so popular, and the constantly hear stories about how loved that she was. she was small in stature just 4 feet ten but with a giant heart and everybody, still saddened, here during the holiday season, her favorite time of the year and they are saying their last good bye to marie buck. so that was the stunner, how was her grandson involved? well, he was involved in drug dealing with the accused killer, here's his new mug shot 31 year-old maurice green when we say new? this was third mug shot taken just this year, two arrests in the springtime march and may

5:38 am
and he fired multiple times striking her 11 times in the the chest. there is videotape of him parking the vehicle, walking down toward the store, minutes before the murder, right after the murder, fleeing the scene, getting back into that vehicle and leaving. we also have help from the public we have some anonymous tips that came in. we have different things that tie him into the scene. >> reporter: he never said one word. he didn't even get both feet inside the store. sadly we have learn that marie buck had $750 cash in her pocket. hundreds more in the register ready to start for business, ready to pay any delivery guys that were coming by and grandson was supposed to be working. he never showed up for work. marie's last phone call was to her grandson to get to the call and she wanted to see that store and customers and friend who need coffee, sandwiches, whatever not to be disappointed so she opened up instead that morning when her grandson was supposed to be there and this killer knew grandson so much, knew his schedule at work, knew he was
5:39 am
supposed to be in the grocery store on christmas eve morning and that tells you how close he was to the grandson and you can bet that grandson feels awful right now, about getting his grandmother killed and captain clark's word but that is exactly what happened and that was true stunner for everybody at viewing last night and everybody who knew marie buck, just shocking it was a member of her own family behind all of this. >> make it so hard for him, and for that whole family, thanks steve. get ready to pay more for gas at gas pull in pennsylvania in just a couple of days. starting january 1st, it will be going up. we will tell you more when we come right back. we were awarding 1.6 billion and up to 2.4 billion. that translates into many more miles of improvements. >> starting on january 1st the gas tax will go up eight cents , so that will be pass
