6:00 pm
6:00 a.m. in the middle of the night, beginning of the morning rush. ending by 10:00 a.m. not a long lasting event here. we have low visibility though and possibly slippery roads when the snow is coming down at its hardest. you can see the rain coming down and spreading up toward new england, solid area pretty much. and it goes way back down south. but there's no snow with this thing yet. a little bit unusual. but the problem is you can't pretreat the roads because it's going to start as rain. and that's what's happening. it's going to be spreading to the north by 8 to 2 a.m. it's just raining. temperatures are in the 40s. and then the colder air comes in, rain changes to snow between 2 and 6:00 a.m. and 6 to 9 a.m., the snow ends west to east. so watch this temperature go down, it's going to take a while after 2:00 a.m., there it is. a change can be to moderate rain
6:01 pm
to moderate to heavy snow just like that. and how much snow is likely to fall, meteorologist sheena parveen has more on that. >> parts of the area will get more snow than others because some won't get any. that's the important thing is where is the heaviest wet snow going to fall? that will be reducing visibility the most. here is a look at a map with snow totals we expects. 2 to 4 for southern delaware, kent county, sussex county, cape may county and south jersey, cumberland, gloucester and camden counties. we could see locally higher amounts especially if this snow starts coming very heavy. heavy wet snow, never good for the morning commute. 1 to 2 inches around new castle county to the major interstates up to philadelphia that will be extending through the major interstates into trenton, up to an inch the farther north and west you go for bucks, montgomery and chester counties. the impacts during the morning rush, this is what you can expect as the snow is falling.
6:02 pm
so, areas north and west, that will expect the least mainly grassy accumulations and that lighter snowfall in some cases. grassy accumulations mainly near trenton, philadelphia, down to parts of wilmington in new castle county. low visibility at the same time that the snow is falling so remember that. also in new jersey, heavy snow at times, heavy wet snow, visibility will be low especi especially if we see heavy bursts. grassy accumulations with temperatures being a little above freezing but if we have heavy enough snow which we expect in some cases then that could certainly be sticking to the roadways for the morning commute. we'll be watching this slowsly. glenn will have a closer look at the timing. >> sheena, thank you. with snow in the morning schools could delay the start time. now is the time to download the free nbc 10 app. you can receive text messages once your school delays or cancels classes. we'll go on the air tomorrow at 3:30 in case schools make that call early.

also today, the irs is trying to fix problems with its software to file taxes on line. yesterday there was an outage caused by a hardware failure. the irs said that it does not expect this to cause major delays getting refunds. >> there could be some delays tomorrow morning as a result of this rain changing to snow, just in time for a portion of the morning rush. that's why we have a first alert out for those few hours that we're concerned about. the rain changing to snow overnight especially in philadelphia area, new jersey, and the shore regions themselves. the morning rush with wet snow, some low visibility at times. so, visibility is fine, i-95 now, but if it's snowing hard enough, if you're here, you can't even see out there. and that creates extra problems during the rush hour. 48 degrees right now, winds
6:18 pm
northwest at 8. we're not close to getting snow yet but things are going to change. now at 8:00 p.m. the rain starts spreading through the area, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., it's raining. temperatures in the 40s. but 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. that's when it starts changing to snow. temperatures drop into the 30s, they don't have to drop to 32 degrees to change to snow. i've seen it snow as warm as 46 degrees. in this case, let's say about 38. 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., the snow ends. from west to east. so like i said only a relatively brief period of time. you can't even call this a storm. the winter weather advisory for much of the area until 10:00 a.m., tomorrow, does not include the poconos. there's live radar showing light rain in parts of delaware and south jersey. this area of moisture stretches all the way back hundreds of miles, into north carolina, you see its bulging back out here so.
6:19 pm
this western edge, if you extrapolate it is going to come here toward philadelphia so that area is going to expand. not just at the shore. the temperatures of course going to be critical. 48 degrees, all right, that's too warm. 42 in pottstown, 37 in mount pocono. it's going to take a while for the temperatures to come down. watch this. as we go through the evening, first of all the computer models underestimating the rain that's occurring right now and the next few hours ooixt it's going to be more widespread than that. there it comes. then we see a change over to snow. and look how fast that happened. within a matter of an hour you can take a much of the area from rain, heavy rain to heavy snow just like that. over a large portion of the region. it's a little above freezing about everywhere as you see, and that could be enough for most of the snow to melt on the roads. the roads are warm. if it's hard enough that will reduce visibility and make for
6:20 pm
some slippery spots especially on untreated or untraveled roads. but look, by 9 a.m. it's practically out of here. how much fall, 2 to 4 inches sussex count i, cape may, atlantic county. locally higher amounts. 1 to 2 inches in kent county, new castle county, salem, gloucester, philadelphia, northern burlington, mercer county. so not a big storm at all. just that stinking timing. the rain develops changing to snow late. 34 for a low in philadelphia, 32 north and west. tomorrow we have early wet snow, then clearing, so after 10 a.m. it's pretty nice day. in the 40s and whatever fall sts going to melt. then a nice weekend. super sunday. monday, the clouds increase and then a chance of a little more

6:26 pm
last year, he wasn't asked to be a penetrator, he wasn't asked being a pass rush mode. he was sort of eating up blocks and falling off on tackles. i remember him a couple years ago when the eagles drafted him and he was an attack player. >> jim was the head coach in detroit and he can help doug pederson in his first time in the job. >> everybody thinks you're ready but you're not. i think i can be a good sounding board. doug's going to make his own way. >> jim grew up 90 miles away in baltimore, a blue collar town. he fits in, he knows the passion for football here. >> i used to tell our team in detroit when we came here there's no better place to play in the nfl. you have to embrace the crowd. there is no better place to win. >> the defense should be betterment i'm john clark. we're right back.
