PHILADELPHIA -

Investigators with the FBI are searching for a large amount of $100 bills that haven't even been released into circulation after investigators say they were stolen from an airplane in Philadelphia.

According to the FBI, the plane arrived in Philadelphia from Dallas Thursday just before 10:30 a.m.

The FBI says a "large volume" of money was stolen from the plane.

The money wasn't reported missing until 2 p.m. by a courier service when it arrived at the Federal Reserve Building in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The FBI says the $100 bills are not scheduled to be released into circulation until next year.

The FBI is asking that merchants be on the lookout for the bills.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
