mainly snow in the poconos and that's the area that may actually pick an inch or two out of this storm. one-two punch let's at a look at both purges the first one over the deep south. second one starting to strengthen over west texas. if you were watching earlier we couldn't really see much of anything now we're starting to see that hook take shape and this system will be strong as it moves into the deep south tomorrow but this first one is getting on out of here. this is exiting. the second one swings in and there's actually a moderate risk for strong tornado along the gulf coast tomorrow. not something we see all that often in february. so future weather again showing the rain starting to lift in overnight. it's still dry by 9am i expect it to be raining from the city south and east. then snow break out in the far northern reaches of our viewing area mainly the poconos. that will move on out. there could even ab little freezing rain there as we head into tomorrow night but wednesday that's when that second low comes through and heavier rain even a few thunderstorms you can see these lines setting up as this system moves through. the heaviest is wednesday night
into even early thursday morning. so timing the impacts heavy rain from tuesday morning right through thursday morning there will be a break in the action. tuesday afternoon into wednesday morning. between those two lows really but the winds especially on wednesday gust to 40 miles an hour. strongest down the shore poor drainage flooding an issue of slow travel expected through the duration of these two storms. how much we talking here? by this time tomorrow really as we head into early wednesday morning, looking at about half an inch with three quarters of an inch with the first storm. the second storm has much more dynamic system. thursday morning possibly 2-inches of rain from both systems together. so we're always trying to bring you the impacts from these storms and help you navigate them. your best commute wednesday morning your west commute certainly wednesday evening and the driest time frame between storms will be tuesday night into wednesday morning. and by the way there's that severe threat mainly south jersey and delaware on wednesday a marginal risk for severe
weather as we these storms start to move inform heavy rain will be the biggest impact. clouds increasing overnight. the rain arrives by mid morning tomorrow from south to north. and your "eyewitness weather" seven day forecast brings that heaviest rain wednesday evening into wednesday night. thursday morning still lingering rain. then we clear it
