5:21 pm
bit of a weather pattern change for us, we have a nor'easter that we're tracking so i'll show you that in a second. beautiful look out center city. clear but the wind and the cold air really made it a lot different when you stepped outside. feels like 26 degrees now in philadelphia. actual temperature is 36. and this is really the case across the entire area. feeling 10 degrees colder than the actual temperature with the wind, so most of the area does in fact feel like the mid to low 2020s. look at our temperature trend through the overnight hours and into 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. the temperature will keep dropping but the wind chill, that feels like temperature, that will stay below it so it's going to keep feeling colder, about 5 to 10 degrees as we go overnight and through tomorrow morning. feeling about 4 degrees colder. we'll start in the 20s, so you'll want the heavier coat tomorrow morning. we are nice and dry on the radar. we're going to stay that way as we go all the way through the weekend. there's a chance late tomorrow night we could have a little light precip.
5:22 pm
not a big deal, though, a nice area of high pressure hanging around, that will keep us mostly dry. here is future weather. we do stay mostly dry, cold air stays in place early tomorrow morning. this area of high pressure, it moves over us so it's going to keep most of the area like i mentioned on the drier side by noon tomorrow, but then you notice all of the clouds moving in. we'll have a system moving to the north pretty small but we'll keep an eye on it. we could see light areas of precip out of that, then we go into saturday morning, nice conditions, a little warmer, then through saturday afternoon, we'll be around 60 degrees, sunday looks good too. now this is a look at our next snow chance that nor'easter i was mentioning. agency we go into tuesday we'll be watching it track up the coast. by wednesday that's when we should get the most impact out of this. coastal flooding, that's going to be a concern at this point, the track still uncertain. we're still many days away. this is next wednesday but the area of low pressure could be bringing part of the area snow, part of the area rain. and of course we'll have a lot more updates as we get closer
5:23 pm
but something to keep in mind. tonight clear and cold, 23 the low, 15 areas north and west, then tomorrow pretty nice day, clouds increase through the day, but still going to be cold around 40 degrees. and then we go into the weekend and that's the nice warm-up. saturday around 60 degrees and sunny. sunday we'll see temperatures right around 57. chance of a late shower that could linger into early monday. and then you see the snow chances start increasing tuesday, that would be more of a mix, but then by wednesday we'll be tracking that nor'easter. >> well, it wasn't snow or ice that canceled class at this elementary school in the suburbs. take a look. a burst pipe is to blame for flooded classrooms. an update on the damage and what's next. >> imagine walking through this every day to get to your front door. we'll explain what it is and why
5:24 pm
one town in australia can't do much about it.
5:25 pm
5:26 pm
breaking news from delaware. police investigating a deadly stabbing in wilmington. >> right to reporter tim furlong who is live on the scene with the latest. >> reporter: we rolled up to the 2300 block where police are investigating what is now become
5:27 pm
a murder in that house up on the hill there. police telling me the victim is a woman in her 50s, she was stabbed to death. they have a person of interest they are looking for but at this point no suspect in custody. >> thanks for that, tim. turns out nobody is safe from donald trump's war of words, not even the pope. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> why the gop candidate is attacking francis after his trip to mexico. how it could affect trump's run for president.
5:28 pm
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
donald trump versus pope francis in a war of words over trump's plan to build a wall at the mexican border. trump is firing back after the pope called anyone who wants to build such a wall unchristian. trump says she outraged that the holy father would question his faith. >> the pontiff was speaking on board the papal plane on the way back to rome after he finished his trip to mexico, during that trip pope francis prayed for mexicans who died trying to reach the u.s. he will give trum taxpayer benefit of the doubt because he has not independently heard his plans to build a wall. the pontiff says quote a person who thinks about building walls wherever they may be and not
5:31 pm
building bridges is not christian. this is not the gospel. >> trump responded at a campaign event in south carolina. he accuses the mexican government of using francis as a pawn and says the roman catholic church is only hearing one side of the story. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. the pope is being told that donald trump is not a nice person. okay. donald trump is a very nice person. if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which as everyone know is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. because this would not have happened. isis would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians. >> angry donald trump this afternoon. for insight how the pope's
5:32 pm
comments could affect trump's campaign we reached out to an assistant political science professor. >> shawna joins us live in the operations center. professor, let's start talking about the pope's comments on donald trump. what kind of influence and impact does the pope's words have on catholic voters? >> it's a great question, so the pope's words i think will have a big impact. this is not just any priest here, this is the pontiff. and this has been a really activist pope and one not afraid to speak up. what he's saying here is that trump has been acting like a bully. he made a career out of acting like a bully. i think trump's response and angry response is not going to help much. >> so let's talk about the latest polling, the latest national poll from nbc and "the wall street journal" shows ted cruz is now the republican front-runner just ahead of donald trump. it's been close but the poll shows cruz leading donald trump
5:33 pm
by 2 percentage points after months of polling showing trump of course with a lead. so, what does this all mean for the cruz campaign do you think? >> overall it's good news for ted krutz, but catholiced and christians take the comments seriously, i think it might mean that the republicans are going to have trouble with hardline immigration policies that they have been talking about. the pope is asking us to treat immigrants as human beings and not just as scapegoats like the republican policies often have been doing. >> let's talk about the democratic candidates now they take the stage in las vegas for a town hall on msnbc. what should we be watching for? >> i think what we're going to see is a lot more of clinton trying to show her credentials. she has an edge in the polls in terms of foreign policy, in terms of immigration and particularly race relations. nevada is an interesting state, our first more diverse state so we get a sense of how voters
5:34 pm
beyond the white voters might feel about a presidential candidate. it's harder in nevada. it's a caucus, not a primary. it's less representative. i'm looking and especially ahead to south carolina to see how hispanic and how black voters are going to respond to both bernie and hillary. >> we'll see if this pope dust-up is mentioned as well. thanks so much for your time. >> you're very welcome. >> to our weather now an update on your first alert forecast. >> a cold night. a little colder than last night, too, so we'll have areas in the teens overnight. take a look at the cold air mass on top of us. philadelphia at 36 degrees right now. and it's going to stay in place as we go into tomorrow, tomorrow morn, so it's going to stay cold to end out the week. a few degrees warmer than today. tomorrow afternoon. tonight we are talking about the cold along with the wind. actual temperatures are right around the mid to low 30s
5:35 pm
through the area. but when you factor in that wind, this is what it feels like when you step out. so feel likes 24 degrees in allentown, 25 reading, feels like 26 in philadelphia, 29 in millville, so the feels like temperature is about 10 degrees colder than the actual temperature. and that's the way it's going to stay as we go through the early evening. this is future weather here. future temperatures as we go into early tomorrow morning, take a look at these. low 20s around the philadelphia area possibly. teens north and west, mid-20s so pretty much everybody here will be above or below freezing, to start off your friday. then we're looking ahead to a warm-up for the weekend aside from that we have a nor'easter heading our way next week. we'll look how warm your weekend will be and the timing of that potential nor'easter. >> she was tied up and locked in a trunk. a trooper managed to track down a mother allegedly kidnapped by her ex, how a popular app made the difference. and how long have you been in a
5:36 pm
relationship? with your credit card. coming up when the experts say it's time to call it quits and look for another plastic partner.
5:37 pm
5:38 pm
>> you can file this next one under the important benefits of modern technology. pennsylvania state police are crediting an iphone for tracking down a young woman kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend. the woman was meeting her ex to talk about custody of a young child. police say there he tied up the woman and forced her into the trunk of his car using the phone that belongs to the victim's mother and the find my iphone app police were able to track down the woman at a mcdonald's in miles berg about 150 miles away. 18-year-old joseph buller is facing kidnapping charges. now to consumer news. how long have you been using the same credit card? according to a new survey 25
5:39 pm
million people have had the same card for at least 10 years. that's according to credit other consumer credit card habits include not looking at the benefits of other cards, experts recommend reviewing other offers. check for lower interest rate or few you are fees, also change credit cards every four to five years and try and pay off balances in full every month. you will need plenty of plastic to play this new monopoly came called monopoly ultimate banking game but there is no banker, also no paper money. players swipe bank cards on a hand held device. coming up the pope weighs in on the zika virus and his comments may not be what you would expect to hear from a holy father. we'll explain. plus, why did a cargo ship go right into the middle of a hurricane. its a question investigators had for months. now a text message is giving them new clues. >> get ready for a colder night

5:44 pm
hurricane last year, before it went down the captain was warned in a text message that a storm looms offshore was forecast to become a hurricane. that message came from his vacationing second mate who testified the captain replied he planned to go near but under or south of the hurricane, hurricane joaquin, all 33 people on board that freighter died. >> a woman with a history of sneaking onto airplanes has been arrested again. bond was set at $150,000 for marilyn hartman. she was arrested at o'hare international airport. a judge released her on probation last year and ordered her to avoid airports. she tried to board without a ticket numerous times in recent years and succeeded at least once. >> if you hate doing yard work this next one will put things into perspective. residents in one australian town are exhausted from cleaning up after what they call a real menace. >> it's a fast growing tumble
5:45 pm
weed. it's taken over their neighborhood. look, it's piling up, clogging homes and leaving residents frustrated and tired. disappearing into it. the weed blows in, covers everything. it's so high it blocks them from coming out of their front doors. residents suspect this tumble weed is coming from a nearby field that a farmer failed to maintain. >> cleaning up the tumble weed. and this is what i've got today. >> the town council captain help because it says the weed is not consider add fire risk and that leaves homeowners to put up with it or clean it up. indefinitely. >> the countdown to the summer olympics is on. >> yes, and today we've got an aerialñr view in rio de janeiro. a drone captured the various venues that are going to be used. the local organizing committee said the park reached the 97%
5:46 pm
completion mark at the end of january. three venues are completed, and ready for the games. >> we are now just 169 days away from the start of the 2016 olympics in rio. of course you can catch all of the action this summer here on nbc 10. well, a cold and windy day today and it's still very cold and windy outside right now. tonight, though, the winds will lighten up and temperatures will be dropping into the teens for parts of the area. then we go into the weekend, a warm-up in the forecast near 60 degrees, at least one day this weekend. and then after that so make sure you enjoy it. we're tracking a nor'easter as we go into next week. and looks like part of the area could see snow. i'll show you in one second. right now actual temperatures right above freezing for the lehigh valley. 36 degrees in philadelphia, but when you factor in the wind it actually feels 10 degrees colder
5:47 pm
than this. so right now we feel like the mid to low 20s, 33 in glassboro and in dover. like i mentioned the winds will die down, nice ski conditions in the poconos but temperatures will continue to drop as we go through tonight. so dropping into the mid-20s, then by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning around 24 degrees for the philadelphia area. but teens north and west. so very cold start to friday. we start to warm up going into the weekend. right now we are nice and dry and we're going to stay in this drier quieter pattern through the weekend. nice area of high pressure will keep us dry most of the day tomorrow. but then we'll see clouds move in. so here's future weather, we stay cold, we stay cold even through the day tomorrow. mostly dry because of this high. you see the clouds moving in, disturbed area of weather up to the north, that will bring us cloud cover, too. can't rule out the chance for some very light precip later friday, but we'll be watching that closely. the model doesn't want to show much here. then saturday, and a warm front
5:48 pm
