Here's your daily look at five stories to know about:

1. Bridge closure subpoenas: Attorneys for former aides to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be in court today, fighting subpoenas related to the George Washington Bridge lane closures scandal. Lawyers for ex-staffer Bridget Kelly and campaign manager Bill Stepien say handing over text messages and other communications puts them at risk for self-incrimination.

2. Roller coaster weather: Get ready for a week of wild weather: After spring-like temperatures Monday and today -- when the high could reach the 60s in parts of the region -- the mercury will dive back to the teens by early Thursday morning, and there's a chance for some snow showers. By the weekend, temperatures could be back near 60 degrees.

3. School construction: Voters in 13 New Jersey school districts, including Glassboro and Mount Holly, will vote on school-construction referendums today.

4. Priest trial deliberations: Deliberations resume today in the trial of Rev. Andrew McCormick, a Catholic priest accused of sexually assaulting an altar boy in 1997, when he was a priest at a Bridesburg church.

5. High-rise in historic area: A luxury condo tower is being planned for Fifth and Walnut streets, overlooking Independence hall.
