heading into the road, not widespread heavy rainfall for the roads. not a lot of accumulation, as it will be on the warm side. the visibility is coming down. that will make for hazardous travel this morning. the snow is falling. here at the nbc 10 studios. we've seen aç steady snow in t last hour. but accumulation, not happening. the temperatures are still too warm. north and west, it's starting to cool down already. but this is where we're seeing lighter snow for reading into limerick, westchester, seeing steady but very light snowfall. tinnicum township. heavier snowfall in the i-95 corridor for wilmington, philadelphia and trenton could lead to some slippery roads this morning. for bucks, montgomery and mercer counties, the farther north and west you do, the less snow you'll see. it will be a snowy commute nonetheless. heaviest snow between 5:00 and 8:00, wrapping up between :00
a -- 9:00 and 11:00. lower bucks county and portions of mercer county, closer to the delaware for bensalem and trenton. heavier snowfall lasting a little bit longer. a bit more accumulation. most of that accumulation will come on colder surfaces, grassy surfaces. some sidewalks will get more than the roads will as the roads are still warm. 35 degrees in philadelphia. north and west into chester county, it's getting colder. westchester at 33 degrees. 32 in chadds ford and one degree above freezing for tredyfern township. hour by hour forecast at 7:00 this morning, that is steady snow in delaware and new jersey, starting to taper off for those areas north and west. stand by for a snowy scene this morning. snow and 33 degrees in philadelphia at 6:00. by 9:00, it will still be above freezing. this will limit accumulation on the roads. by lunch time, it's out of here
and the temperatures will be climbing. we'll get breaks of sunshine. we'll go through the futurecast hour by hour to show you exactly when it will be tapering off and how much you can expect when i'm back in a few minutes. right now, jessica boyington has first alert traffic. >> we're on hamilltown township, 295 around 195. not a lot of cars on the roadway. you can see underneath 195. not a lot of cars traveling on 295. you can see reflection from the streetlights that we have wetness on the roadways there. average speeds are down naturally. we also have travel advisories and posted speed restrictions right now on the new jersey turnpike down to 45 miles per hour, all the way from the delaware memorial bridge up to exit 12 in rahway. that was issued a few moments ago. that's pretty much a big deal. may drop later on. we'll keep you updated. we want to stress be careful
goingç off the off ramps. this is the blue route. use caution when traveling on the off ramp and pay attention to the posted speeds. >> thank you, jessica. keep an eye at the bottom of your screen. as soon as we get school delays and closings, we'll run them in the scroll you see there. sign up for nbc 10 school closing alerts as well. logon to nbc10.com and put in your school information. we'll send you a text or e-mail as soon as your child's school is delayed or closed. >> none yet, no delays or school closing just yet. the shore is expected to see most snow from this morning's storm. >> matt delucia is live in atlantic city. what are the conditions like there? >> right now we're still seeing rain out here, vai and tracy. we did see some of that change over to wet, heavy snow as we were on the atlantic city expressway coming up to this
area. right now on the boardwalk, it's wet. it is warmer as bill was talking about down here at the shore. that's why we vice president seen anything in the form of snow sticking to any of the surfaces. of course, we are expecting that changeover to happen relatively soon. but we do see some of that minor, very, very minor flooding off to the sides of the roads on some of the roads as we were coming in here to atlantic city. you see some of the water collecting on the side of the roads. really nothing too bad out here at all. as we've been talking about all morning, it's that kind of weather where you can't pretreat the roadways because of the rain that's falling and all that salt/brine solution would wash off the roadways. we did see a plow truck that you would normally see on the boardwalk, we see plenty of them. really on patrol so to speak, not having the plow down, not salting the boardwalk but keeping an eye out when the changeover happens.
we'll be out here on the boardwalk. we are seeing a few folks making their way out in this rain. for now, live in atlantic city, matt delucia, nbc 10 news. plan for extra time no matter where you're doing. matt, thanks. wee are out on the roads checking on the conditions. we gassed up stormforce 10. here's a live look, route 42, south jersey, belmar, camden county. the colder it gets, it could make the friday morning rush a little bit of a challenge. >> katy zachry is near 30th street station in university city. katy? >> every time we see you, every 30 minutes i have an update on the conditions. that's how often we're changing. we're outside 30th street station. you can look at the roadways. theç snow we had about 25 minus ago, lighter, fuller flakes lightly falling, that's changed over a little bit now where some more moisture has been added to the flakes. they're a little bit icier, a
little bit more rain filled. as we see, plows are moving on to the schuylkill expressway from up here locally in philadelphia. we're see something of them already at this hour laying salt. even though we have some of that rain still in the mix. you can see some salt is being laid on the exit ramps, on and off ramps. those surfaces are different from the pavement and they can freeze a lot faster. amtrak delays, none to speak of right now at 30th street station. we'll swing our camera over to 76 as i tell you about an update i have from the philadelphia international airport. so far today, three lights in or out of philadelphia have been canceled. two between philadelphia and boston. we know the storm system is moving up to the northeast. also one between philadelphia and pittsburgh. taking a quick live look at 76, the schuylkill expressway, we are seeing cars move at a pretty regular clip here but as bill said, the bulk of the snow will move in between 5:00 and 8:00 a.m. that's the bulk of the morning
rush. we'll see conditions change very differently over the next little bit. reporting live outside 30th street station, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. >> our reporters like katy are keeping us informed, passing along this e-mail from penndot, warning our customers to take their time getting off and on trains, buses and trollies. be careful on the platforms. the conditions are slippery. >> we have a team of nbc 10 reporters and photographers covering pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware this morning. the conditions are changing and they will change rammedly over the next few hours. here's a live look at center city right now. this is from our camera atop the comcast building. snow is coming down, you can see. not accumulate on the roadways, not at the toll plaza this morning. in the for most of the areas, just too warm, at least for now. the temperature is starting to come down. it's just dropped to 33 degrees here at nbc 10. the time is 4:39.
let's end this. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> 4:42. 33 degrees, just above freezing but it's snowing. the atmosphere has cooled down. we're going to see snow falling right on through the morning commute. philadelphia international is reporting 35 degrees. that number will come down a bit and as it does, we'll see accumulating snow. mainly on grassy surfaces north and west but some of the harder surfaces, colder sidewalks and driveways could see limited accumulation. snowy commute. right now we're seeing steady snowfall in wilmington and philadelphia. the heavier snowfall is going to be time for the morning this morning. it's snowing now, accumulation will start on grassy surfaces, some secondary roads could see accumulation finishing around 11:00 this morning. we're looking for 1 to 2 inches in the philadelphia area. as you go up 95 farther north and west, we could see
additional accumulation during the day. the snow intensifies, that will bring down visibility making for some hazardous travel and slippery conditions possible this morning. but it starts to taper off. at 9:00, we'll see breaks of sunshine at noontime. the futurecast hour by hour when i'm back in just aç few minute. good morning, everyone. jessica boyington with your first alert traffic. we're looking at the boulevard around the schuylkill expressway. if you look up where the streetlights are, you can see that precipitation. it looks like a wintry mix. not solid snow at this point coming down. it's all just as slippery. some area bridges with speed restrictions. i'll tell you about those in about ten minutes. conditions are change, most places are starting to see snow as we give you a live look at
don't even think about it. cough if you can hear me. i took mucinex dm for my phlegmy cough. yeah...but what about mike? it works on his cough too. cough! it works on his cough too. mucinex dm relieves wet and dry coughs for 12 hours. let's end this. winter is hard on your nose. from first sniffles to endless runny noses. puffs plus lotion is soft. they help soothe irritation by locking in moisture better so you can face winter happily. a nose in need deserves puffs indeed. and try puffs softpack today. introducing longhorn's steaks that sizzle for $12.99. like the new smoky bacon sirloin.
and the parmesan crusted sirloin. only at longhorn steakhouse. you cant fake steak. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> here's a live look right now at conditions, mid-county interchange at the pennsylvania turnpike. you see the snow coming down there. still too warm, though, on the roads for it to accumulate. that's going to change soon. let's take you to center city. we have issued a first alert because of the timing of this snow, really. changing conditions, slippier roads and poor visibility as well as the wind there. >> 33 degrees right here in the delaware valley. that will drop, especially in the shore areas where they'll expect to accumulate the most snow between 2 to 4 inches in various parts, different parts of the shore. >> this winter storm will be
changing over the next few hours. be sure to have the nbc 10 app on your smartphone and tablet. track this snowfall as it moves through, right down to your neighborhood. you can see when it's coming, when the changeover is happening and when it will be moving out. it is a free download. the nbc 10 app. >> we have our nbc 10 reporters and photographers across the area, checking on conditions as they continue to change. >> nbc 10's south jersey bureau reporter cydney long is live in evesham township, burlington county. cydney? >> the snow is beginning to pick up here in evesham township. we're at a wawa on east 70. this car had not a stitch of snow when we arrived at 3:00 this morning. now it is coated. the photographer, john marcucci is showing you where it is
sticking and where it is not. it's been snowing a bill better than an hour or so and it is sticking. along route $70 a wet surface. you can see the snow coming down. thankfully it is not sticking. the roads still warm enough from temperatures that were above freezing. w warmer temperatures that we saw throughout the week. these roads have not been pretreated because we had the rain overnight. any of the salt and brine solution, emergency officials told me throughout burlington and camden county, it would have all washed away. we have seen the first plow trucks, salt trucks, they won't be able to plow until there's accumulation but the salt trucks are on the ready as folks are headed to work and school in these messy conditions out here this morning. live in marlton, cydney long, nbc 10 news. >> cydney, thanks. there'sç a speed restricti throughout most of the new jersey turnpike. >> let's get you updated.
>> starting to see speed prestripre stri -- restrictions pop up. speed restrictions now down to 45 miles per hour there. first we'll take a look at the blue route. this is around baltimore pike. no problems in either direction, definitely slowdowns. we're adding minutes on to our drive time. this is typically about a 15-minute trip. it's early for us to see an increase in the drive times northbound from 95 to the schuylkill expressway, that's what you're going to face. speeds starting to drop into the 50s there. we are starting to see a little bit of that delay. if you look at the camera, it's hard to see the roadways right now. it's covered in rain water. the lenses on the cameras are giving you this reduced visibility. that's what you'll see on the roadway as well. heading out the door into montgomery county, also montgomery, doylestown pike and
county line road, reports of an accident there. we'll see an increase in accidents as well. we did go over the speed restrictions on the new jersey turnpike. those are also on area bridges. ben franklin and walt whitman, down to 35 miles an hour. tacony palmyra, no restrictions as of now. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. >> ten minutes before 5:00. we've now seen some steady snow in philadelphia in this view since 2:30 this morning. you can see no accumulation on the roadways. those are still warm. the atmosphere has cooled down faster than the ground. as cydney long just showed us, there is some accumulation on the colder surfaces like cars that have been sitting and cooling down. 35 degrees at philadelphia international. it will take some time for the temperature to come down and for us to see some sticking.
but sure looks impressive on the radar. not a major storm but it is going to be a mess because of the timing for the morning commute. that's when we can see some of the heaviest snow. much lighter farther north and west. steady snow right now for wilmington, philadelphia and trenton. as we saw on that live picture we're not seeing anything in the way of accumulation on the roadways this morning. you'll see it on grassy surfaces, some sidewalks and cars that have been sitting out overnight. that you whiches trenton and philadelphia. but the farther south and east you go, even though it's starting off as rain, matt delucia showed us the rain that's falling in atlantic city. it is going to change over to snow there as well. it is coming downç heavier in northern cape may county. that's heavy snowfall. we're expecting the heaviest snowfall in delaware and south jersey. one of the indications of the intensity of the snowfall is the visibility. yesterday we had low visibility because of fog. this morning it is falling snow that has dropped visibility a
bit for coatesville and blue bell. it's not an issue farther north and west. the pocono mountains seeing no snow right now. one mile visibility, coming down steadier there. look at wilmington with steadier snowfall, one mile. it's going to take that steady snowfall to lead to accumulation. the future snow shows at 7:00 this morning it's still coming down for the northern and western suburbs. northeast philadelphia will be seeing right around an inch of snow by 8:00 in the morning. heavier snow is possible on grassy surfaces into new jersey and parts of southern delaware. by 9:00 it tapers off north and west, less than an inch for pottstown and reading. maybe more in philadelphia, in the 1 to 2 inch zone. look at interior new jersey by 10:00 this morning, 2 to 3 inches. we've been mentioning isolated amounts of more than 2 to 4 inches. that's what you can see in toms river by 10:00 in the morning,
it will still be coming down. delaware and south jersey, farther north and west for the philadelphia area into wilmington and the immediate suburbs, 1 to 2 inches and even less farther to the north and west. a snowy start this morning, 6:00 this morning, 33 degrees. the snow will lighten up at 9:00. it will still be coming down. areas north and west will see it come to an end by this hour, the heavier snow will be in new jersey. by lunch time it's going to move out quickly. we will get breaks of sunshine this afternoon. it looks like we could warm into the 40s. much of that snow that accumulates on the grassy surfaces may be disappearing during the day today. >> that's crazy. some of the isolated places, maybe a little bit more than 4 inches. >> yes. >> by this afternoon, it's all going to clear out? >> yes, the snow will be gone. there will be some on the grounded to replace what melted in the last couple days. >> thanks for keeping us updated. let's take a live look along the mid-county interchange along
the pennsylvania turnpike. a live look. you can see the snow coming down. i just got a message from one of ourco are co-workers who drove in from the western suburbs and said it's the visibility that is reduced because of how fast the snow is coming down. we have you covered with reporters and photographers. we'll continue coverage inç a minute. this is nbc 10 first alert winter weather update is brought to you by buckmans, your cold weather experts. but the omega-3s in fish oil differ from megared krill oil. unlike fish oil, megared is easily absorbed by your body. megared. the difference is easy to absorb.

the mid-county toll plaza, pennsylvania turnpike, the snow is falling. the colder surfaces will see accumulation first. you'll probably see it on the toll plaza itself before you see it sticking to the roadways. shouldn't have any problems keeping ahead of this on the major roadsç but some of the secondary roads could see slippery conditions later during the morning commute. and for cape may,so
that's between the delaware memorial bridge and exit 12, all the way up in rahway. you can see these are our cameras around the delaware memorial bridge. that snow is falling heavily at least at this point and accumulating on the roadways as you can see with the car driving through and over into the center lane where cars aren't traveling, you can see where the snow is starting to accumulate. slippery conditions out there. go slow. the posted speeds on the turnpike are 45 miles per hour. more speed restrictions in the area. i'll have them for you wasn't i come back at 5:00. >> we'll see you then, jessica. while the weather is important, we want to tip it here and talk about something very important. heart disease and stroke kill one in three women every year. >> it's one of the ma is it tst that they want you to know about. today is national wear red day. use the #philly goes red. we'll be tweeting our own
